Mangoes in your omelette?

Shares

August 2, 2011 – For the longest time, mangoes have been getting a bad rap for being an unhealthy sugary fruit. When in season, mangoes with their exotic sweet flavours and juicy flesh are simply irresistible; but diabetics have always been discouraged from consuming the fruit. Well it turns out that the mango police have clearly been misleading mango lovers.

Researchers and nutritionists have found that per 100 grams of mangoes, the fruit will provide you with more than your daily requirement of Vitamin A and C. Mangoes are a great source of fiber (perfect for combating constipation), magnesium, iron and antioxidants. Most importantly, the glycemic index of mangoes is on the low end, which does not have any significant effect in increasing blood sugar levels. As a result, mangoes are fine for diabetics. So enjoy your mangoes!

    Who believes this s***? Ati declining powers. You want OUT because you want to continue to rape, loot and pillage your citizens with impunity. Get your arse into the hague and get tried and sentenced for the peopl you’ve killed, lives you’ve destroyed and families you’ve torn apart. MBWA wewe.

      prejudice!!

      • rss1234

        Are you seriously advocating that he carried out no killings? Go tell that to the mothers missing their sons, the children missing their parents, the spouses missing their spouses. I have worked with these people. It is heartbreaking. You make the comment that he is a king in front of your comfortable screen in middle class Nairobi. You harbour prejudice of the mind and care not an iota for your fellow citizen. You are a scoundrel. And the sad thing is, you are too stupid to know what this person is. And you are too dumb to admit its true.

          Obviously you are good with insults and curse words. THAT says more about your thinking and personal situation than it says about the ICC or Kenyan situation. Take it easy on the alcohol by the way. A Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) ticket will only make what you are going through worse.

    “For numerous reasons, the United States decided that the ICC had unacceptable consequences for our national sovereignty. Specifically, the ICC is an organization that runs contrary to fundamental American precepts and basic constitutional principles of popular sovereignty, checks and balances and national independence.”

      Who asked us to join? and why did we join?

      • Kwessi Pratt

        Impunity forces wanted to prove to international community that our democracy was maturing. But they never let go their brutal ways of assaulting citizens. I guess, thats why ICC, which just charged three individuals, is turning out to be a major problem for the country. Impunity forces were only pretentious. They never intented to fulfill their obligations if that court landed on one of their own. Pretence has eventually brought pain and huge waste of time for the country. Impunity is ruthlessly fighting back hard!!!!

        • Naturalsceptic

          “The British foreign secretary Robin Cook said at the time, that the International Criminal Court was not set up to bring to book Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom or Presidents of the United States. Had someone other than a Western leader said those fateful words, the word ‘impunity’ would have been thrown at them with an emphatic alacrity.”

          • Kwessi Pratt

            Am not sure whether late Robin Cook said those words. What I might believe is that he said Suprior judicial systems are not subject to ICC. ICC is correctly for states very close to failure, or completely failed states. Its also for ruthless blood thirsty dictators most of whom dot the African continent. If thats race hunt so be it! Impunity runs awash where courts are toothless as it has been our case. Had our courts shown their teeth, we wont be talking about ICC having invaded our sovereinty. However, am at loss what you are trying to mean. Nevertheless, I do know impunity doesnt run riot in US, UK and quite a number of other western countries. Thats why you CANT get a suspected criminal running for office in those countries, let alone being crowned emperor suspect!!!!

          • Naturalsceptic

            Here I was thinking Bush was elected twice. As for Robin Cooke, you have internet access and, I hope, a library card. It is not my job to convince you – always verify.

          • Kwessi Pratt

            Hidding behind “always verify” or something? I guess, you are coming out fighting for yourself not facts!

    • Kwessi Pratt

      United States has the best judicial system on earth. Thats why they refused to be party to ICC. However, they fully remained behind the court. They infact arrested fugutives from former Yogoslavia on behalf of ICC. On the other hand, our judiciary bents under the weight of impunity forces. Thats why Uhuru and Ruto were not stopped from vying for offices. That escapist attitude from the truth is what the country is now paying for. Presidency has remained the most crippling organ since this country became a Republic in 1964. It NEVER respects the law or anything else for that matter! If late President Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, Moi and Kibaki strictly followed the law, the country wont be so underdeveloped and fighting unyielding impunity 50 years on. Needless to say, these three guys were essentially ruthless tribal leaders.

      • Natty Dread

        “United States has the best judicial system on earth.”

        And jails full of African Americans, and the State of Texas where they’re hanged as frequently as they are beheaded in Saudi Arabia after Friday afternoon prayers.

        • Kwessi Pratt

          It has for sure! But some isolated incidents here and there are everywhere. Actually what I meant was that judiciary in US can interrogate any situation without politicians giving orders as is the case in many African countries. And good lot of African Americans in Taxes have been reduced to juviniles by poverty. Thats why their crime rate is rather high.

    “Our concern is that this is a court that is irreparably flawed, that is created with an independent prosecutor, with no checks and balances on his power, answerable to no state institution, and that this court is going to be used for politicized prosecutions.”

    FROM threat of withdrawal to a kick of a dying horse called ultimatum

    Did we not say that the threat of withdrawal from ICC was a mere grandstanding and useless intimidation to ICC by frogs and lame donkeys who are known as butchers and murderers of their own citizens for political power. The African dictators led by Kaguta Museveni of Uganda and Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe met on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at the African Union (AU) headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and instead of withdrawing en-mass as they had threatened before the meeting, the cowards backed-off abandoning and throwing Uhuru Kenyatta under the bus like they did before to the late Muamar Gadhafi of Libya. After cheating and beating the drums of war to Uhuru Kenyatta that he should defy the ICC, the dictators have now abandoned Uhuru at the last minute by asking him to carry his own cross. Uhuru was asked to write a letter to the UN Security Council seeking deferral as provided for in Article 15 of the Rome Statute. Sources inside the closed-door deliberations of the Council of Ministers disclosed that Kenya had placed two requests for consideration – that the ICC cases be deferred and that the ICC be substantially reformed. Members agreed on the first request but were apprehensive on the latter noting that ICC was an independent institution and besides Africa lacked the necessary numbers to push for such changes. It was resolved, among other agreements, that a five-member committee of the executive council, including one Kenyan, be formed to deliver the AU resolution and ultimatum to the UN next month. And to ensure this, the AU has given the United Nations Security Council an ultimatum of up to November 12 – the same day Uhuru trial is scheduled to begin – to defer the Kenyatta case. If by November 30 the African leaders would not have received any communication from the UN, the AU will reconvene yet again to deliberate on the way forward. It is presumed that the plan of action may involve mass withdrawal by African nations from the Rome Statute.The decision, arrived at by the African Heads of State during a special session in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, is also meant to benefit Sudan President Omar Al-Bashir who is an earlier ICC indictee. And as if to make sure other similar Kenyatta and Al-Bashir cases do not come up, it was also resolved that any African country wishing to refer any cases to ICC must first refer to the AU for guidance and possible approval. While to those with heads in the sand who think that Uhuru secured a breather, the fate of his William Ruto was swept under the carpet, as AU’s proposed privileges are did not cover deputy or vice presidents. Once again, the african dictators pledged to embark on their own mechanism of trying their own cases of crimes against humanity, mass murder and rape by strengthen the African Court of Justice and Human Rights as the first step.

  • Jongere

    If Uhuru wants his case to be deferred by the UN security council then this speech will never help him at all. He is increasingly shows that he fears the ICC case and he has a case to answer. The election to presidency is being used to shield him from facing the victims. The victims are also human beings.
    Only diplomacy shall help not defiance or rebuke. Ruto has shown the way to d´Hague. Follow the suit.

    • kush

      The president is proceeding diligently in this case.Since it’s a fabricated one,he has to be careful not to fall into the trap of the schemers and at the same time vindicate himself.

      • peace be

        Diligently indeed. He’s got the best lawyers money can buy; and best intelligence the Kibaki administration had; the innocence of Gandhi; the bitterness of some of the victims of Kiambaa church; and knowledge of the fact that he cannot intimidate ICC. So, what options does he have?

    • Naturalsceptic

      And yet the prosecutor’s office wanted Ruto replaced by an interim deputy president.

    • Natty Dread

      On the contrary, Uhuru’s speech may just as well signal the end of African docility, where countries bend in whichever direction they are told. The conduct of Ruto’s trial totally justifies defiance!

  • kinyan80

    Those trying to gain leadership in this country through the back door should know we are watching.

    • peace be

      Kenya is democratic society. No one can gain leadership thru the back door. It is not Egypt of Mali, so dont deceive yourself.

  • peace be

    Perhaps that is why the Western Imperial Powers inscribed in the Kenyan National Anthem: “Justice be our shield and defender”. Our = 1,300 murdered, countless number of women raped, men circumcised, displaced, property destroyed. Teeheee President Uhuru can just join the camp of dictators and be like Bashir of Sudan. Too bad he cannot be Prez for life like Mugabe, Museveni, or Bashir; and he won’t be hiding in the statehouse after 5 or 10 years. When Kenya was burning, who knew that one day Mwai and Lucy wouldn’t be snoozing at Statehouse?

    • Natty Dread

      Wacha melodrama.

    “..Shambolic domestic dysfunction” – Uhuru Kenyatta inadvertently perfectly describes the Kenyan government in reference to the U.S.

  • Sajith Panduka

    It’s very well prepared and timely speech. One should not under estimate the African Leaders and Nations capabilities. I think Mr. Kenyata must implement some 7 subtle measures”deceptively innocuous” as he said to make these Red Necks understand basic theories of Humanity.
    It is a known fact these atrocities took place in 2007 but an organization such as ICC cannot bring only African Leaders to books that is what matters here. Africans must unite.

    1. Visa regime for all travelers. (No more visa upon arrival for USA,GB,EU).
    2. Award major contracts to Asia,China,Russia and South America.
    3. Stringent controls to their export such as quality controls,Document Legalization via respective Kenyan Embassies,Import duties and rigid implementation of Laws.
    4. Educating Kenyans not to feel inferior in front of Red Necks.
    5. Give opportunities to all Kenyans to achieve in life.
    6. Ban tribalism in public life.
    7. Distribution of wealth equally and fairly.

    I wish him all the best.

    Article well done. Uhuru and the African Union has at last labelled the ICC what it is. A “KANGAROO COURT”
