Scientists have tested money and phones from 395 food handlers in 15 different types of outlets in Nairobi County and confirmed the two items to be highly-tainted with disease-causing germs.

The researchers collected money from the food handlers in every denomination of the Kenya’s currency.

The money underwent through a thorough test for eight types of Disease Causing Organisms.

All of the tests confirmed positive of the DCOs. Of these, 20 per cent were food-borne pathogens.

The Sh 50 and Sh 20 denominations were the most tainted. Researchers believe that it’s because they have a possible wide supply and circulation. With Sh 1, 5 and 1000 being the least contaminated.

Staphylococcus species of germs that have been medically proven to cause skin, heart and bone infections, food poisoning and pneumonia were mostly present to all the denominations.

Bacillus species of pathogens were also present. The pathologist say these may cause food poisoning, shock, meningitis and blood poisoning.

E coli was also present on coins. The contaminant is usually from human Feaces. The contaminant is the root cause of most of urinary tract infections.

Phones were also tested and confirmed to be contaminated with 12 types of pathogens.

Staphylococcus,E coli, Pseudomonus and Klebsiella species were the most common.

The study reports that over 60% of people don’t wash their hands and an equivalent of 34% had no knowledge of food handling.

Cryptosporidium parasites were also present on the coins. These parasites causes serious diarrhoea in children.

Independent medical researchers have refuted KEMRIs studies saying the germs present on coins and notes are less harmful.

While KEMRI says some types of parasites found on the coins, especially from butchers are contaminated with Zonootics.

This disease can be transmitted from animals to human.

Dishonored: Kenya’s Rugby Players Air Their Frustrations And Poor State Of Life

Published

on

Kenya has very talented sportspersons. From athletes to soccer and to one very successful sport in Kenya, Rugby.

Kenya 7s has been having a decent and successful time at world rugby series.

But the results are far more likely to be worse if the current salary and allowances situation goes on.

Players like Willy Amboka and Dennis Ombachi have taken their salary grievances and stolen allowances to Twitter in what seems like a tip of the iceberg on the pathetic conditions KRU is putting its players through while expecting good results.

The two Kenya Rugby Sevens aside team players have complained about the problems facing their mens team.

Ombachi says they are being paid peanuts with no allowance. Something that is seemingly making it tough for many players to pay for their basic needs such as house rents. https://twitter.com/Willyambaka/status/1131844294149591040?s=19

With Willy Amboka backing him on how it’s hard to explain to the landlords why the house rents haven’t been paid. https://twitter.com/ombachi13/status/1131851931134124032?s=19

National Players are being paid 28K per month. Without any allowances and paid trainings or travels.

Ambaka and Ombachi also says Medical fee and house allowances of the Sevens team has been misused by KRU Bosses.

Players are forced to pay for their own medical fees if they get an injury.

Kenya is resourceful with raw talent but it suffers from the unknown management syndrome that has been brought about by nepotism and tribalism in the current KRU Board.https://twitter.com/ombachi13/status/1131808209214287872?s=19

It’s also sad how national rugby players are living like peasants and forced to beg for money and food from friends, fans and family.

Ambaka also expressed his frustration about how his fellow mates are going through hard times to an extent of borrowing everything https://twitter.com/Willyambaka/status/1131844667685916672?s=19

While Ombachi saying that all of their money were stolen by corrupt KRU bosses

 

Last but not least, the unhappy Ombachi talked about how KRU bosses have neglected men’s gym and training areas. https://twitter.com/ombachi13/status/1131804677396471808?s=19

The issue of nepotism between two national rugby teams also arose.

With what clearly indicates exploitation of players from the National women’s rugby teams.

Are the women afraid of talking about their off pitch matters? Or someone is working things from their side.

We are waiting for the official response from KRU Bosses about the off pitch issues that are tearing apart our national rugby teams.This is not the first time ugly face of rugby management is coming to the surface.

Last year during the World Sevens Series in Paris, players staged a cold protest when they concealed the Brand Kenya brand who was a sponsor.

Shujaa had met with Brand Kenya and KRU CEO and it was announced the board had come to sponsor the team to a tune of KSh 20 million for a period of eight months. Brand Kenya boss declared each player would be given a token of KSh 100, 000 in form of cheques in appreciation of our exemplary performance.

KRU boss interrupted the payment plan and asked Brand Kenya to send money to the union which would in turn channel it to their accounts. Players were never paid until a serious online protest was staged. It’s disturbing seeing how our boys who bring pride to the country are being treated with utmost disrespect. Mismanagement in Kenya’s sports especially rugby is a cancer that need to be cut off.

Migori Man Who Eats Snakes, Lizards, Chameleons And Tortoises

Published

on

Which are your favorite foods? As you think of the answers, Thomas Odembo, a 35 year old watchman by profession from Ogongo village in Nyatike Sub County has chameleons, lizards and tortoises as his favourite food.

Mr Odembo says he developed appetite and interests on chameleons, lizards, tortoises, cats and dogs when he was employed as a guard for a Chinese supplier.

Odembo who rears his own animals to feed on in his compound says everyone should try his tastes.

“These food is actually healthy and totally sweet that any other red or white meats that people are eating.” Odembo told a local daily.

“I have lost appetite for cow and goat meat. I don’t eat pork too. I have enough chameleons and tortoises for myself and I’m ready to supply the village the surplus,” Odembo said.

“I took chameleon last night for supper, this tortoise was brought by a neighbor who found it in his garden,” Odembo said.

Odembo the father of seven says he learnt how to rear and prepare these animals from his former bosses, the Chinese.

Odembo says the Chinese eat these animals and they don’t affect them. He is urging all the fellow village people to start embracing this new diet.

Odembo went ahead and explained that the animals taste just like ordinary meat.

“My favourite meal time and again is reptiles especially snakes, lizards, chameleons and tortoise. My wife, Pauline Akoth and my seven children don’t eat my food. They call it trash and poison” Odembo explained.
