FEATURED, GOSSIP, Latest News, TRAVEL
Ruto was set for a private trip to the neighbouring country the second time in a month but was blocked by immigration officials at Wilson Airport. Immigration officials insisted Ruto had to get clearance from President Uhuru Kenyatta. Via social media on Tuesday, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said the DP has never required permission to travel "The Deputy President has never ever required any clearance to travel out of the country.

"What happened today is a sheer act of impunity and gross violation of the Constitution." Murkomen claimed that the President was revenging on his deputy because of the recent Kiambaa by-election loss. "What happened to fair play...

Dwarf Giraffes Found In Murchison Falls For The First Time

Dwarf Giraffes Found In Murchison Falls For The First Time

FEATURED, NEWS, Tourism
While conducting a photographic survey of the giraffe population in Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda, a group of researchers spotted something unusual. One of the wild giraffes looked a little different from the others, with notably shorter legs despite having what appeared to be a sub-adult body size. Then, while carrying out similar work in Namibia, they spotted a second wild giraffe with similar morphological abnormalities. Giraffe calves fully mature somewhere between three and six years of age, and this second giraffe was thought to be born in 2014, meaning this individual should exhibit the leg lengths of an adult. The researchers believe both giraffes are affected by a condition similar to skeletal dysplasia (an umbrella term for conditions that affect limb length including...

Uganda is not on UK Covid exempt list

Uganda is not on UK Covid exempt list

FEATURED, NEWS, Tourism, TRAVEL
The UK’s requirement that tourists returning from most African countries must quarantine for 14 days defies logic, says Anver Versi. It has serious implications for African countries that rely on tourism but is not applied to tourists returning from places with far higher levels of Covid-19. Africa can be justified in once again claiming a case of double standards. This is in relation to the lists issued by various countries on Covid-19 quarantine regulations for travellers returning from certain countries. For example, UK residents returning from their trips abroad are required to quarantine for 14 days on arrival – unless the country they visited is on an exempt list. At the time of writing, some 74 countries were on the list – mainly in Europe and some Caribbean and ...
