By OLIVE BURROWS, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 11 – Exactly a year ago, the mother of five-month-old Baby Bhakita came knocking for donations at Capital FM’s door.

“Our economies in the 21st Century in the name of development have actually begun to kill an extraordinary number of people. If we go by the available statistics that the WHO releases then almost one in four or one in five premature deaths that occur every day, every month, every year, on our planet are actually caused by ourselves.”

“…The details of how the deceaseds (sic) met their death was horrific. They all tried to escape from the dormitory but were unable to do so since they were crowded with only one exit door. They fell over each other as the inferno consumed them. The evidence presented to this court indicates that they all screamed for help but none came to their rescue. They silently perished in the fire. Their suffering was painful and slow… The parents’ hopes, dreams and aspirations that their children would one day reach for their stars and support them at old age were dashed and went in flames…”
By OLIVE BURROWS, NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 14 – Where does one begin? How does someone who has never lived through the experience of losing a child begin to tell the story; even imagine what it’s like to lose a prize child. How to begin to describe what it’s like to stare down at a mass …

“Something mysterious happened when Barack Obama entered the Oval Office in 2009. Something vanished from that room, and no one could quite explain why. It was a bust of Winston Churchill. On day one of the Obama administration it was returned, without ceremony, to the British embassy in Washington. Some said it was a symbol of the part-Kenyan President’s ancestral dislike of the British empire – of which Churchill had been such a fervent defender.”
By OLIVE BURROWS, NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 22 – Trump lookalike and London Mayor Boris Johnson on Friday blasted “part-Kenyan” US President Barack Obama for opposing a Brexit – an exit from the European Union (EU) by Britain. In an opinion piece published by The Sun on Friday, Johnson accused Obama of taking a “downright hypocritical” …
