(Adds comments by finance minister, budget details, reaction, rewrites throughout)NAIROBI, June 10 (Reuters) - Kenya’s finance minister cut the budget deficit lightly on Thursday as he splurged on infrastructure projects and a stimulus effort to boost economic growth in the face of the coronavirus crisis. The East African nation projects its economy will expand by 6.6% this year, Finance Minister Ukur Yatani told lawmakers, while presenting budget proposals for the 2021/22 (July-June) fiscal year. Growth plummeted to 0.6% last year, Yatani said, as key sectors like tourism and related services collapsed at the onset of the coronavirus crisis. “We are trying to finance a budget through tax revenues that are not there,” he told Reuters. To maintain growth, Yatani boosted spending on infrastructure projects like roads, and allocated cash to an economic intervention program that offers manual work to thousands of jobless youths affected by the pandemic.

gives the pair an opportunity — and incentive — to work toward common ground as Johnson is eager for trade agreements. Johnson, until recently, was so unwaveringly close to Trump that it would seem hard for this not to color his relations with Biden. Back in 2019, after Johnson's Conservative Party won a majority in Parliament, Biden called the new British prime minister a "physical and emotional clone" of Trump. So Biden should be cultivating his relationship with Macron as carefully as the one with Johnson. These relationships across the ocean require constant reassurance, particularly in the wake of the four years of the Trump administration.

Migrant labourers work at a construction site at the Aspire Zone in Doha, Qatar, March 26, 2016. REUTERS/Naseem Zeitoon/File PhotoQatar’s public prosecution has charged a Kenyan man who has written about migrant rights in the Gulf Arab state with receiving payment to spread disinformation, the government’s communication office (GCO) said on Saturday. Malcolm Bidali, who had been writing under a pseudonym, was arrested on May 5 for violating Qatar's security laws, according to a Qatari official. Rights groups have voiced concern that his detention may be in reprisal for human rights work. Qatar's human rights record has been in the spotlight as it prepares to host the 2022 soccer World Cup, especially over migrants' living and working conditions.

Judge Martha Koome attends the interview for the post of Chief Justice at the Supreme Court building in Nairobi, Kenya April 14, 2021. Zakheem Rajan/Judicial Service Commission/Handout via REUTERSKenyan judge Martha Koome has defended dissidents and helped to write women's rights into the constitution - now parliament has confirmed her to be the first female chief justice in a country where the role is particularly sensitive. "You cannot discriminate against a person because you are assuming they will commit an offence," she said at her interview for the chief justice position, which was broadcast live on television. The judiciary faces a vast backlog, with many judgements taking at least five years, another candidate for the chief justice position, Nduma Nderi from Nairobi's employment and labour relations court, said during his interview. Underfunding has led some courts to halt hearings and a row between the recently retired chief justice and president delayed the appointment of 41 judges.

Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan (C) arrives to address a joint Parliament session of Kenyan Members of Parliament and Senators in Nairobi, Kenya, May 5, 2021. REUTERS/Monicah Mwangi/File PhotoExperts appointed by Tanzania's new president have declared COVID-19 vaccines to be effective and recommended joining the COVAX facility that shares the inoculations, in the latest sign suggesting official scepticism about the pandemic is waning. Hassan spoke at a separate public event later on Monday and did not mention COVID-19. Joining the COVAX vaccine-sharing facility enables poorer countries like Tanzania to secure doses for its citizens. In January, Magufuli had warned citizens against COVID-19 vaccines and urged them to instead fight the virus using at-home remedies like steam inhalation.

Kenyan court slams brakes on president's constitutional changes

But issuing a ruling on several challenges lodged by various parties, a five-judge bench of the court said Kenyatta had used a constitutional provision reserved for citizens to initiate the changes, making the process illegal. "The president cannot be both player and umpire in the same match," said Jairus Ngaah, one of the judges. The government, which wants to hold a referendum after Kenyatta signs the bill into law, said it will appeal the ruling. Ruto's allies have loudly opposed the constitutional changes bill in parliament and outside. "I don't think we have a constitutional problem in Kenya… the biggest problem in Kenya is an economic problem," Ndindi Nyoro, a pro-Ruto lawmaker, said on the local Citizen TV.

The discovery of the oldest known human burial site, a child's grave in a Kenyan cave, sheds new light on the emotional life of early Homo sapiens, the head of archaeology for the east African country's museums said on Wednesday. Previous archaeological discoveries helped researchers understand other aspects of how early humans lived, such as their technological advances, how they sustained themselves and how they related to their environment, he said. "We are beginning to understand people having some emotional attachment to the dead that they can be able to intentionally bury them. The child, whose gender remains unclear, is thought to have died aged about 2-1/2 to 3 years old. Also found were stone tools for scraping and boring holes, and stone points that could be used as part of a spear.

Kenya plans to set up emissions trading system
  + stars: | 2021-05-11 | by ( George Obulutsa | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +2 min
NAIROBI, May 11 (Reuters) - Kenya aims to set up an emissions trading system that will allow companies and other bodies to buy emissions allowances, the finance minister said on Tuesday, as the country strives to limit the release of greenhouse gases. Emissions trading is a pollution control mechanism where a central authority issues a limited number of permits for the release of specific greenhouse gases. “The government is at an advanced stage in establishing the Kenya Emissions Trading System allowing companies and organisations to buy Emission Allowance and thereby enable Kenya to meet her commitments in limiting greenhouse emissions,” Ukur Yatani told an online conference of Kenyan and European officials. Yatani said the system would be managed through a national carbon credits and green assets registry, also soon to be established. Africa produces little of the greenhouse gases, such as emissions from coal-fired plants, that most scientists link to rapid climate change.

Journalists from countries as tiny as Guinea-Bissau had been invited to sign agreements with their Chinese counterparts. The Chinese government was distributing versions of its propaganda newspaper China Daily in English — and also Serbian. A Kenyan media group raised money from Chinese investors, then fired a columnist who wrote about China’s suppression of its Uyghur minority. But the study raised an obvious question: What is China planning to do with this new power? The group, which shared a copy with me, hired an author of the first report, Louisa Lim, to canvass journalists in 54 countries.

Kenyatta has assured citizens they will receive their second vaccine doses, but some Kenyans are concerned about supply. Eight countries have administered 100% of their COVAX doses: Tunisia, Libya, Togo, Botswana, Eswatini, Rwanda, Ghana and Senegal. People with one dose will already get some protection and delaying the second dose may not lessen the effectiveness of protection overall -- if the second dose is administered. On February 24, Ghana became the first country to receive free vaccine doses from COVAX -- some 600,000 doses. There will also be a moment in the coming months where US and European vaccine supply will outstrip demand -- opening up powerful manufacturing capacity for worldwide vaccine distribution.

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday lifted the COVID-19 lockdown he imposed last month, allowing for a reopening of bars and restaurants, religious services and schools, as the rate of infections eases in the East African country. Curbs on travel in the capital Nairobi and four surrounding counties would be lifted, schools will be allowed to reopen following an Education Ministry calendar. Religious services will resume with some restrictions, while political gatherings would still be banned, he said in a speech. Under the restrictions now being relaxed, Nairobi and surrounding counties were treated as one zone, with residents barred from traveling to other areas. It called the raging state of the pandemic in India a wake-up call for Africa.

Biden has sought to connect efforts to fight climate change with opportunities to create jobs, arguing that taking action will be good for the economy, countering Republican concerns that overzealous climate regulation could damage the economy.

Munyalo, a 38-year-old mother-of-three, had taken out an insurance policy with Kenyan start-up Pula, which aims to reach a vast, untapped pool of African farmers grappling with new disruptions linked to climate change. Munyalo made a claim on her Pula policy and received a compensation payment of 12,000 Kenyan shillings ($110), close to what she would have earned if her crop had flourished. Across Africa, small-scale farmers who collectively are crucial to feeding the continent are struggling to cope with the impact of climate change on weather patterns and the land on which they depend. Because of climate change, farmers are having to contend with unpredictable rain patterns, frequent droughts and even the emergence of new pests and diseases, Njeru said. “The risk increases because of climate change, increasing the need for farmers to have insurance,” he said.

Boehner’s decades near the top of Republican power politics weakened his party so greatly that the far right’s final takeover was merely a formality. His post-Trump reinvention as a laid-back marijuana entrepreneur, eye-rolling along with us as the GOP implodes, erases his leading role in bringing about the sad state in which the Republican Party finds itself. Boehner wants you to know, needs you to know, that he despises Cruz just as much as you do. From 2011 to 2015, when Boehner was speaker, Republicans created and relentlessly publicized budget crises that risked costly government shutdowns almost every single year. Whatever Boehner may think today, he was certainly willing to negotiate with political terrorists when it meant kneecapping Obama.
