I am not exactly sure what is more dissapointing, between the decapitation and the manner which Nigerians here are taking the matter so casualy and lightly. Are you guys really serious over there?

I can't believe I just read this crap, in this century! So ashamed right now to be associated with you so called 'fellow' Africans. How can any human being with a functional brain support such senseless killings, in the name of such a non-existant stupid reason, as money ritual? W T F is wrong with you people? No wonder the literacy rate of your godforsaken country Nigeria is in the 60s(%). Even the so called 'village people' in my country Kenya or even 'little' Lesotho down south are more educated and civilised than the avarage Nigerian. What a shame!

She broke the Guiness World Record in 2019(previously 68Hrs held by an American), after preparing 400 different types of dishes in just under 3 days nonstop(72Hrs).

Am sorry to say, that it is already past that point, in Kenya. Even the vibrant Kenyan Civil Society, NGO's and Human Rights Groups, that sometimes seem to side even with captured Alshabaab terrorists, our country's most profilic enemies, don't bother speaking up for Nigerians any more.

It has build this culture of 'open season' against any Nigerian in all our security outfits Immigration, KPS(Police Service), DCI, Prisons, even the KWS(Wildlife Service). Only the ordinary Kenyan citizen has kept it hands free so far, because by default most Kenyans are law abiding by nature. Otherwise it would be going the South African way at the moment.

Nigerians and their criminality literally killed the Pan-Africanist in me. It's not like am even biased against anything Nigerian. Most Kenyans naturally like West Africans and their rich culture, traditional attires, music and stuff like that. The conduct of the so called 'human beings' behind that culture though(read Nigerians), very very hard to swallow.

So sad how Nigerians are their own worst enemies, when it comes to soiling Nigeria's image abroad. Here in Kenya, thousands of Nigerians are suffering behind bars. Most of them for no reason at all, other than holding the Nigerian passport.

It's not even a joke anymore, that the general populace in Kenya does not trust even 'legitimate' Nigerians. Who are honest immigrants, earning clean honest livelihoods.
Like other numerous nationalities who have made Kenya their home for decades, escaping turmoil and war in their homelands. The Congolese, Rwandese, Burudians even the Somalians are decent and hardworking too and our peaceful neighbours the Tanzanians and Ugandans not forgetting the best of them all, 'model immigrants', the South Sudanese. Only the Nigerians are singled out and it can't be just be just for discriminatory reasons.

Most landlords in Kenya now specifically bar Nigerians from renting units in their premises. Citing that they are bad for business because they come with alot of unnecessary 'wahala' and too much attention from the security forces, to the chagrin of other peaceful tenants.

This man was the best president Kenya has ever had. He brought so much hope for Kenyans, after clinching the presidency from KANU's grip. KANU(Kenya African National Union was the party that drowned Kenya under former president Moi's Dictatorship for a record 24 years! He won by a landslide while in a wheelchair, after a near fatal accident, a few weeks to the elections. It was a poetic, historic, euphoric and unforgettable day for many Kenyans, when he was finally sworn in as the third president of the republic.

He thereafter literally outperformed, for the ten years(two terms) he was president and Kenya is still reaping the fruits of his vision for the country. Africa is surely watching this Nigerian epic story unfold. All the best in your upcoming elections, dear brothers from another mother.

What do you mean? Kenya is a very functional state, development wise and also in other aspects. It has great infrastructure and a booming economy that has been growing by an av. 7% per annum for the past few years. Stable currency, robust trade, steady/uninterrupted power supply 24/7, all year round. Cheap and available internet and a vibrant IT innovation scene. Above all true democracy, peace and respect for human life.

Very weird. Monarchs or not, traditions or otherwise in East Africa kneeling or prostrating for your fellow human being is akin to slavery. In Kenya even the 'hailing' that Nigerians love to overdo is seen as lowering your dignity and that of your people/community. We respect our elders to a fault, have special greetings and endearing titles for them but never put them above the dignity of others. Its every man for himself and God for us all around this parts.

Am glad that while they are digging further on their demented stance of spreading their twisted agendas, my country Kenya is moving further in the opposite direction. Kenya now has an evangelical president, Dr. William Samoei Arap Ruto and recently the KFCB(Kenya Film Classification Board) banned all LBGTQ+ content from airing in Kenya. Including movies, Tv. series and shows from streaming platforms. I pray that the entire African continent remains steadfast and does not bow to their pressure and allow this trend to take root.

81% illiteracy in Kenya, are you mad? Kenya's LITERACY rate according to statistics by UNESCO is 81% meaning illiteracy is at a mere 19%. https://countryeconomy.com/demography/literacy-rate/kenya

The literacy rate in Nigeria is at 61% the remaining 39% are all illiterates, a whooping 76 million Nigerians who can neither read or write. That is akin to the entire population of Kenya plus 16 million people! https://tribuneonlineng.com/76-million-nigerian-adults-are-illiterates/
Politics / Re: How Atiku, Tinubu, Obidients Reacted To Kenyan Presidential Election Results by MkenyaMatata(m): 4:29pm On Aug 17, 2022
Prof. Wajackoya was in essence a joker from the word go. Every Kenyan, me included, knew he was trending online for all the wrong reasons. His main agenda revolved around his promise to legalize the use and trade of Marijuana, if successfully elected as president. He was promising that Kenya would tap into the export of Marijuana, just like tea and coffee, that are top foreign currency earners for Kenya. His dressing, in durags and stunners like a rapper, his Roots Party and slogan, 'tingiza mti'(shake the tree) in the end was just comic relief taken too far.

President-elect Dr. William Samoei Arap Ruto had all cards stuck against him. His boss astonished everybody when he endorsed, campaigned and rallied the full force of his government behind Raila Odinga, the chronic loser. A leader from the opposition party, under the umbrella coalition Azimio la Umoja, who thought he finally had the presidency in sight. Baba, as he is fondly known even started dishing out cabinet position, before the elections.

Luckily Kenyans are not guillable and are always serious about all matters leadership and politics. The president-elect's coalition of parties, Kenya Kwanza, won all the positions(gubernatorial, senatorial, parliamentary even local county reps) in outgoing president Uhuru Kenyatta's backyard. They even won the presidential vote, in the polling station that the president voted in, all the way in his ancestral hometown of Gatundu, Kiambu County/C. Kenya.

That was The WRC(World Rally Championship) Kenya Safari Rally 2022 undoubtedly the best rally in the world. It was epic as drivers from all over the world descended on Kenya to race off-road in the savannah, past epic landscapes, zebras, giraffes, lions and all types of world animals. I was present in Naivasha, aka Vasha the scenic town where all the fun happens during the Safari Rally. President Uhuru Kenyatta flagged off the rally himself at KICC in Nairobi City.

Am not judging but what's with the snapping and posting pictures of dead bodies? Where is the African respect for the dead? You can't do that shit over here in East Africa. As in take out your phone or camera and snap a photo of the deceased. Whether at the hospital, mortuary or when mourners are paying their last respects. You can actually get beaten/lynched on the spot for just daring to do that.
First time I clearly saw a picture of a dead body on social media, or even in real life, was right here on Nairaland.

Kenyatta favoured him...and with the manual voting accepted... possible rigging in his favour, if necessary, will be done.

It is what it is.
You can't rig via the voters register in Kenya, even the manual one. Tallying of results is done at the polling station level, all independent observers, media and party agents present to witness. Before the results are sent to the regional and national tallying centers, electorically not manually.

Furthermore the courts in Kenya are independent and partial. Presidential elections were nullified in the last general elections, because of unobseved procedures and protocols. Attempts at outright rigging is akin to suicide.

It's like you didn't vote??

Both Ralia and Ruto are key officers in the current government of Kenyatta
I voted very early in the morning yesterday. Do your research, Raila is not an officer of the GOK. He tried to swear himself in as president in the last general elections, after he was defeated but thereafter made peace with Uhuru Kenyatta. In what was famously known as 'The Handshake'. Raila Odinga is the official leader of the opposition even right now.

William Ruto is the Deputy President, even though they have not been seeing eye to eye with his boss Uhuru Kenyatta for some time now. The president dared him to resign, since as per the new Kenyan constitution 2010 he can't sack him without going through the parliament but Ruto refused categorically. Uhuru Kenyatta supported Raila's Odinga's bid for president, campaigned for him and left William Ruto, his deputy, hanging in the wind.

Are you aware that all the “Official Riggings” which happened in the Nigerian General Elections of 2015 and 2019 were as a result of the Manual Accreditation??
..
(The manual accreditation errors of 2015 were even published online by the INEC themselves)
We do it very different here in Kenya, all voters were registered biometrically since the 2013 general election. Electronic voting is being done for the third time this year. The inclusion of the manual register in the polling stations was done so it can be a plan B, incase the electronic devices fail due to other factors like network etc.

Also even if you are a registered voter in Kenya you have to produce your national identification card at the polling station, before you can vote

William Ruto
Results are being streamed live as the counting of votes continues. William Ruto, the current deputy president is giving Raila Odinga(opposition leader) a hard time. Which was unexpected since Raila Odinga had the backing of the president, Uhuru Kenyatta. Would you believe the president backed and campaign for the opposition leader, from an opposing party, to succeed him?

William Ruto's UDA Party has won seats in all levels County Assembly(MCA), Senatorial, Gubernatorial, National Assembly(M.P & Women Rep. in the president's home county. They have even won the total presidential vote in the polling station that Uhuru Kenyatta voted in yesterday. It's amazing!

Major Take-aways:
..
..
1. The Kenyan IEBC allowed manual accreditation..
(That is, Manual Voting)..
That means, there are still “rooms” and loopholes for there to be “Official manipulations” of the results, even though they used “Electronic Transmission”.
Thus,, The Nigerian Election of 2023 is definitely going to be more transparent than whatever Kenyans did on the 9th of August, 2022.
..
..
2. The 56.17% Voters Turnout is something to be applauded.. Kenyan Voters showed enough Participation.
..
.
3. With the total population of Kenya projected to be around 53,771,298 as at 2020 (https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/kenya-population),, it means that only about 40-to-41% of the total population of Kenyans were the ones who registered to participate in the elections.
You are wrong about the manual part. Voting was entirely done electronically ie. KIMS kit for fingerprints. Manual accreditation was done for a few individual cases, where a voter couldn't be accredited via the KIMS kit. When errors occured in the kits or when there was unstable network, etc, the manual register was there as back up.

The turnout was also not satisfactory, might even be the lowest in Kenya's history. Out of 22 Million registered voters only 12 Million showed up at the polling stations. There was voter apathy amongst many of the youth, who didn't care to take part in the elections. Unlike the last general elections in 2017 where the youths showed up to the last man.
