MINISKIRTS: History is repeating itself with the stripping of women wearing miniskirts, says Zoeb Tayabjee, adding that the primitive behaviour has returned to haunt Kenyans after nearly four decades.
He adds: “I vividly remember the miniskirt issue being discussed in the Parliament after which the then powerful Attorney-General Charles Njonjo declared: ‘If you don’t like it, close your eyes’.
This message should be repeated to put the issue to rest again.” His contact is [email protected]
LONG WAIT: Can’t the delivery of public services ever be speeded up, despite several spirited past campaigns initiated by top government officials of the day? Well, Mjidho Dhidha wonders just how long it should take to change the name on one’s national identity card.
He applied for a change of particulars on his ID, on August 28, and to date, all he is told whenever he enquires about the progress is: “Just wait.” His ID card number is 21821483, and his contact, Tel 0720766003 or email: [email protected]
CITY ESTATE: There is, indeed, a Nairobi South ‘A’, says Joe Muiruri, in response to a question by Silas Nyambok, who wondered why there was only B and C. According to Joe, it is the area around the Nairobi South Power Station near Doonholm in the Eastlands.
Says he: “In the late 1960s, Kenya Power used to have its staff quarters in the vicinity with a sign indicating, Nairobi South’ A’, which I saw with my own eyes! I am not sure whether the sign or the staff quarters still exists.” His contact is [email protected]
INTERNET PRICE: Shouldn’t the price of the Internet service be decreasing? asks Dr Said Osman, disturbed about Zuku Wananchi’s 100 per cent increase, effective from next month.
He used to pay Sh1,099, but will now have to cough up Sh1,999 monthly.
Zuku, he charges, is behaving like a monopoly, who does not care about customers’ complaints, apparently being the sole service provider. At this rate, he adds, “they seem to have the blessings of the regulatory authority.” His contact is Tel 0724229670 or email: [email protected]
RUAI MUGGERS: Worried about the mounting insecurity in Ruai Ward in Kasarani constituency in Nairobi, P. Wambugu wants to know when the high-mast security lights promised five years ago will ever be switched on.
Taking advantage of the darkness, Wambugu says muggers are having a field day, and homes are broken into even as early as 8pm. During the last election campaigns, he recalls, some masts were erected, but the project was abandoned once the poll was over. For the details, his contact is [email protected]
Have a secure day, won’t you!
