Mai to miss Commonwealth

APIA, September 21- Kenya’s Sevens Pool A rivals Samoa will be without legendary playmaker Uale Mai for next month’s Commonwealth Games in New Delhi.Mai will miss the two week event to take up a playing contract in Spain.

"It’s a big loss," Samoa coach Stephen Betham acknowledged. "We are going to miss Uale’s experience, but we cannot hold on to him."

    Your style is reasonable and not the sycophancy and brazen Raila Odinga worship we were used to reading from Miguna Miguna and Ngunjiri Wambugu. Raila Odinga’s greatest undoing is his villagemates and sycophants who have their heads stuck so deep inside his arse they have no mind of their own.

      @abb249055208c7af4d35568e422dfd63:disqus Kindly civil in your reasoning…why are you spewing these uncalled for, irresponsible, reckless insults? Please sober up and give meaningful contribution to PM’s well reasoned article.

    Your article is well reasoned and the message on the kenyan middle class abdication of its duty is on point and true.However, your boss and his inner circle have been part of that problem that you so well describe.He has used the poor to his own benefit,used the poor to drown out the voice of the middle class by being the loudest and making it seem like the voice of the majority.It is quite ironical that you choose to work for him and yet you seem to have a very good understanding of what the real problems are.

    Most emerging economies like Brazil and China are as a result of positive mindset and hard work of the middle class.The middle class are the ones who can pressurize the rich to pay more taxes and donate more so that the poor can be elevated to either middle class status or graduate them to live at a better,fair and reasonable standards.The middle class are the ones who work the hardest and therefore should have a united formular in order to bring development in Kenya.The rich only like to oppress,exploit and rule ruthlessly so that they can accumulate more wealth.Therefore,the middle class should come up with ways by which a local mwananchi can live better by encouraging hard work,assisting the poor and weak,pressuring the government to erradicate poverty and also inventing ways by which the middle class can take over from the rich so that the country can be run well and the wealth gap equalized so that it will be in favour of everyone.But this can be achieved by electing future government leaders who have the right credentials,have great love
    for the poor and weak,who also have a great vision and who are willing to make every person to be rich in Kenya.Vote wise.Vote right.
