Food is an important part of the Greek culture

It is said that the Greek put their heart , soul and favourite seasoning into many of their delicacies. In fact one of the chefs who will be preparing the various kinds of Greek inspired dishes is chef Papadopoulos Giorgos. Papadopoulos strongly believes in showcasing the beauty of yet unexplored Greek cuisine to the world. He brags over two decades of experience in culinary arts and has prepared food for dignitaries and ambassadors from countries like Greece, Netherlands and Kuwait.


The Greek Food Festival is sponsored by dusitD2 Nairobi and Qatar Airways and for one to take part in the festival and get the Greece experience, one will be required to make reservations so as to enjoy dining from 7:00-10:30pm. Patrons will also enjoy being serenaded by a jolly Greek singer accompanying his mellow tunes with a Bouzouki. In addition to that diners will get the full Greece experience of a dining set up made up of the clear blue skies and sea color synonymous with Greece.

    An incompetent bunch of people! Surely how can they do this to us?
    IEBC is mandated with only one job. ONLY ONE JOB! And they’re on their way to bungling it! How can the BVR kits be here by Tuesday if payment is made on Friday and we were told some haven’t even been manufactured? This is not ugali where you need 15min to cook it! We’re talking about ELECTIONS here!

      This is not about IEBC, its about some people clinging to power. read between the lines. Delaying the BVR’s will delay the elections and they will remain in power for more days. listen to what Eugene W. the Justice Minister had to say. Treasury were delaying payments.

    They say the BVR kits has arrived. But has the solar power kits which is supposed to power the BVR kits arrived. If not how IEBC plans to power them.
    When do they do the quality check of the kits, when will they load the software in 15,000 kits, when will they train the people on kits, when do they transport the kits, when do they enrol the people? Usually all these processes takes 2 to 3 months.
    Who is going to train the people and how they are going to train 15,000 people who are spread across the country?
    Lets IEBC answer these questions and let them release white paper on project plan for implementing biometric enrolment?
    When are the servers that need to ensure no duplicate arriving? and when and how they will collect the data lying at 15,000 bvr kits and how much time they will take to process this data and when they will publish this data?
