In a widely circulated speech, UK environmental activist Mark Lynas has apologised for his past history of demonising transgenic crops and masterminding the anti-biotechnology campaign.
Explaining at the Oxford Farming Conference in January 2013 why he changed his mind, Lynas said: "I discovered science, and in the process I hope to become a better environmentalist."

It was delightful to visit the port of Mombasa on Wednesday in the company of board members of Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) and the Kenya Shippers Council (KSC).
We witnessed firsthand, that at long last, chronic port congestion and inefficiencies are being tackled - bravely by Kenya Ports (KPA), timidly by Rift Valley Railways (RVR).

I read with interest Mr Kamau Kaniaru’s article (Daily Nation Wednesday May 15 2013) alleging that the decision imposing a GM food ban never amounted to anything. Allegations by Mr Kaniaru are both presumptuous and ill informed.
Firstly, Kenya is seen as a leader in the region to advocate for deliberate, scientific and non-political approach to decision making especially with regards to agriculture and food safety.
Thank you for supporting me for the last 50 years of public service, says retired President Mwai Kibaki

I am extremely happy to address you on this historic occasion that marks the passing of the torch of leadership to a new generation of leaders that the people of Kenya convincingly voted into office. I thank all heads of State and international friends who have come to witness this auspicious event.
I wholeheartedly congratulate His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta on his assumption of office as President of the Republic of Kenya and Commander-in-Chief of our Defence Forces. In equal measure, I congratulate our new Deputy President, His Excellency William Ruto.
