|Evans Wadogo from Malava, Kakamega has been nominated to represent Africa at the CNN Hero of the Year Awards in Hollywood, California. Out of 100 nominees, only ten are remaining and Wadongo is one of them, the only one from Africa. His invention, a solar lantern, was inspired by his upbringing in rural Malava, Kakamega County where he had to fight for the smoke-filled koroboi with his siblings to read and write. Despite that he has just graduated from JKUCAT with a degree in engineering but it seems this young man is headed for more than just a successful career - he is our hero and we salute him. Voting ends 18th November. CLICK HERE to cast your vote. More...|
NOMINATE YOUR GOVERNOR: The political landscape in Buluyia is headed for seismic shift following the promulgation of the New Constitution. Come 2012, there will be no such thing as Western Province. Instead, we shall have FOUR counties of Kakamega, Bungoma, Busia and Vihiga. The county governor will be more powerful than either the Senator or MP. Already the usual suspects are lining up for the largesse but this time, the Luhya need to vote for meaningful change rather than pander to the whims of political has-beens.
