eaders from Mt. Elgon differ Sharply during NCIC Forum-
Mt. Elgon, Kenya.
By Steve Wambugu. Source: Posted 10th April 2015. 

Former Mt Elgon MP Fred Kapondi yesterday accused current MP John Serut of inciting the community against each other. The two leaders were at a National Cohesion and Integration Commission forum in Nakuru town. Leaders from Mt Elgon attended the forum to ongoing wrangles.

"You are not driving any development," Kapondi told Serut.

NCIC chairman Francis ole Kaparo intervened to stop the leaders' spat.

"Mt Eldon residents are not the property of Serut, Kapondi, Kisiero or any other leader hence leaders should show servant leadership instead of propelling war." he said.

Kaparo accused the two leaders of being the problem. He said they should offer services instead of being warlords. The two-day forum is expected to end today, with NCIC set to give its solution to the problem....Click here to view copies of Mt. Elgon NCIC Resolutions.

Is defeated Sabaot Land Defence Force (SLDF) Plotting a Comeback?
He is bright-eyed and looks more nervous than I am.He is dressed in army camouflage. From our correspondences, I knew ‘The Terminator’ was a huge man, perhaps over 6-foot-1 inch.  But I am struck by how bony he is, with bony wrists. His firearm is partly rested on his lap and two knives dangle from his webbed belt. Beside him is a stone-faced, bare-chested man, in his early 30s, holding a semi-automatic rifle and a shotgun.........
