Anti-Machine Activists not Serious!
12 - 19 July 2006 Cover Story
Come to think of it, why do we need vehicles of any kind? Think how many jobs there could be if all the cargo now carried in 40ft containers on juggernaut trucks was instead carried from Mombasa, packet by packet, on foot, on shoulder, by hundreds of thousands of porters! Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!

EASSy to Easen Communication in Eastern Africa
The demand for ICT is very critical now. More people must get access to valuable information at a cheaper cost; and this in turn should make them more self reliant in doing business, education, and production....

Litigation in the East African Court Of Justice
Invariably the Court by playing its role effectively is expected to enhance the observance and upholding of human rights through good governance and democratic institutions in the region.

Q&A
Africa has a lot to Teach the World
It is a shame that in Africa most of the people who profess Christianity are also some of the poorest. I believe Christianity can contribute to economic wellbeing. African Christians must consciously refuse the dependence mentality. Many come to faith 'to get something' and never 'to give' something....

Commentary
Banjul Unmasks Pan Africanist Debility
We should embark on a consistent advocacy of naming and shamming those governments and states that put impediments to free movement of Africans but welcome non African foreigners. A gallery of these Pan Africanist rogue states may be launched from summit to summit while we also create awards for those opening up other Africans. So leaders can choose to be Villains or Defenders of Unity of our peoples....

Stock Markets to Brace for Hard Times
Very soon, listed firms will be too many to the extent that unlike currently where some firms will not record trades for an entire week, we will witness firms that do not record trades for even a whole month, but with lesser price fluctuations....

HIV/AIDS: A Setback to Small Micro Enterprises
Finance experts and Accountants have not brought in their expertise and this explains why the accounting procedures for the extra costs on business are not being captured. Most researchers have complained of lack of well organized data in Africa which hampers good planning....
HIV/AIDS Statistics: Misleading?
You wake up one morning to news that 50 people have died in a road accident. Later in the day, it is clarified that only 10 perished, while the others were treated in hospital and discharged. Should the news source take credit for the 80 per cent reduction in fatality rate? Put another way, if the initial figures released on Aids last decade were erroneous, should they still be used to estimate the current prevalence and mortality rates?...
Book Review
Agricultural Investment in Eastern Kenya
In order to trigger the engine of productivity among those perceived to be poor, one must ensure that they consume the fuel that will get them moving. Partnering with the low resource farmers to innovate and achieve sustainable win-win scenarios where farmers are actively engaged and companies that supply products and services get profit is a healthy way to ensure sustainability....
Agriculture
Pesticides: Exiting the Maze

Poor infrastructure and insecurity, rampant in some areas of North Eastern, hinder farmers from transporting their produce to the markets...
THIS WEEK'S EDITORIAL

Talking to Africa
The African voice has been muffled for too long. Even people who cannot tell where Africa is have become “Professors” of Africa, peddling images of conflict, disease, corruption and all such things. We have been told that population increase is bad and have run with the song. We have left Africa’s story to be told by other people....
