“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.”
“That is in judicial terms sometimes called manslaughter or murder… I don’t want to go into the legal end of it but if you know that something is killing somebody else and you continue doing it, then this is an act that is deliberate.”
By OLIVE BURROWS, NAIROBI, Kenya, May 24 – United Nations Environment Programme Executive Director Achim Steiner has compared failure to address the causes of air pollution and environmental degradation in general, to the premeditated killing of one by another. While he admits that the comparison may not be technically accurate, he says it is criminal …

“…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 …

NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 15 – You’ve seen the videos; sugar piled into a glass as the narrator informs you that it is the amount of sugar you consume when you down a bottle or can of that liquorice coloured soft drink: Coca-Cola. It’s a concern that Coca-Cola as a company is not oblivious to hence …

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 7 – When I interviewed US President Barack Obama back in July last year, I was taken aback when he asked me if Kenyans watch House of Cards on Netflix in Kenya. “I guess Netflix is everywhere now?” he posed. Well, President Obama, now I can confidently announce that yes, Netflix really …

“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” …

+Coca-Cola Chief Marketing Officer Marcos de Quinto shares with +Capital FM Kenya the reasoning behind their new 'One Brand' strategy: “Great brands do not sub-brand. A Coke is a Coke is a Coke. We don’t do it with the different flavours of Fanta yet we have been doing it with Coca-Cola.”

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 28 – He walked in damp from the rain but it soon became clear that the downpour that preceded his entry hadn’t dampened his evident anger. His glasses characteristically propped on his forehead, a handkerchief crushed in his hands, he launched into a tirade; raging at Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i for …

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 26 – It reads like something out of a John Grisham novel; a cloak-and-dagger tale of how decisions that alter the course of history are made and of the shadowy characters that pull the strings behind the curtains. It is important to make clear from the get-go that the events narrated herein …
