Ms Wenwa Odinga, Judy Kibaki and Kalembe Ndile are among newly appointed members of parastatal boards appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta onMonday.

Wenwa has been appointed to the Kenya Medical Research Institute board, Judy to that of the KenyaInvestment Authority and Kalembe Ndile to the Water Services Regulatory Board.

The appointments are for a period of three years starting April 17.

Uhuru made 302 appointments to 79 state corporations, representative of all communities in Kenya, State House spokesperson Manoah Esipisu said in a statement.

“In terms of Mwongozo guidelines and Executive Order No 6 on Integrity, the new parastatal executives will be expected to make a public declaration on fighting corruption,” Manoah said.

The appointments come nearly 18 months after parastatals were appraised. The President appointed a taskforce which evaluated their structure, operations, management policies and governance, Manoah said.

The findings were used to determine how the parastatals contribute to and transform national development.

He said the administration tapped into the wisdom, experience and knowledge of senior citizens and embraced the energy, enthusiasm and innovation of the youth.

“Currently at 31 per cent, women, youth and persons with disabilities will comprise a significant share of the appointments once the exercise is concluded – higher than at any other time in our history,” he noted.

The appointments are in line with the government’s transformative agenda and were published in a special issue of the Kenya Gazette published today.

Other appointments are as follows:

Musikari Kombo, chairperson of the Water Services Trust Fund, for a period of three years starting April 17

Richard Leakey, chairperson of Kenya Wildlife service board for a period of 3 years with effect from April 17

Omingo Magara, chairperson of the Kenya international convention centre board for a period of 3 year

St. Louis Kids Expo Events & Activities -May 2nd 2015

Baby Kid Expo_Facebook Banner

The St. Louis Kids Expo empowered, educated and entertained over 1,500 children and parents last year. This year we will raise the level of awareness, reshape our community’s attitudes and have access to resources to inspire individuals to take action.

The theme for the 2015 Expo is:
FAMILY | FINANCE | FITNESS.

FAMILY
The St. Louis Kids Expo will bring families together and make them stronger by having workshops, vendors, and speakers that address issues such as positive images, balancing life, work and family, education, managing stress, support resources, child abuse/neglect, divorce, communication, legal matters, technology and creating a legacy within the family and much more.
FINANCE
Parents are working part-time, full-time or multiple jobs. We are constantly worried about our finances. It’s important that we teach our children the principals of money management. We will focus on educating
parents and children regarding credit, saving, expenses, needs, wants, budgeting, discipline/sacrifice, business, insurance, being a smart consumer, retirement, investment and many other tools to have a wealthy life.
FITNESS
Fitness is important for an everyday healthy lifestyle. Having the proper well-balanced meals daily with exercise will help you live a long, healthy life. The expo will empower and offer families with information
on nutrition, calorie monitoring, obesity, healthcare screenings, fitness demonstrations, healthy food selections and setting goals for a healthy life.

Kenyans, their familis, friends of Kenya and other Christians came from all corners of Georgia to participate and or attend this year’s fete.

Every year, Kenyans living in the South Eastern region of the United States get together to showcase their culture through performing arts and cultural exposition.

“The standards in this year’s performances are very high,” said Mr Chege Maina, one of the adjudicators of this year’s festival.

“Through drama, these people are telling us about themselves, the successes and challenges they face as immigrants and they do it so creatively,” added Mr Maina, who has attended all the shows since the festival began in 2007.

The festival, which is spread out through the year, features plays, poetry, traditional dances, fashion show and a cultural exhibition.

“It is a clear testament that despite being far away from our motherland, we haven’t lost cognisance of the fact that our society is a beautiful cultural mosaic,” he said.

The event closes this Sunday April 26th at 3pm when the winners will be announced.
