Why focusing on the ‘Population’ and ‘Need’ Principles is Unrealistic
Indeed, Kenya is at a crossroads in its devolution efforts. On one hand, the country has declared its intent to support the fiscal muscles of its county governments. On the other hand, its institutional structures to guarantee this capacity, including revenues powers and expenditure autonomy, have not fully materialized. Nor has a criteria been defined for fair and equitable revenue distribution across its 47 counties. The revenue and resource aspect, mainly the issue of a fair and equitable sharing for counties, is the subject of contention ensuring in the country. A look at the suggested formula by CRA uncovers three significant flaws. At its core, this formula is largely crude. More than population and poverty, though it includes other measures, it should have used variables that accurately measure service delivery needs across all the counties. Secondly, this formula places ‘need’ at its center, leaving out other vital elements of fairness, including counties’ capacities to collect their own revenues.
A shift to measures that precisely reflect and correspond to service delivery need is more plausible in resolving the current stalemate. Considering a nation’s population is a sensible way in estimating service demand in each area, but relying on it solely as a measure is rather too naive. Measures that are more accurate exist to paint a better image of the needs of each county and the demand for services by each individual. The only explanation for ‘population’ use in revenue sharing formula is that governments are about people, and thus, the ends of such regimes are in essence, the welfare of their citizens. Further, advocates of ‘population’ inclusion base their claims on equity. They assert that true development has to meet the development of people. They continue, ‘to do so, the distribution of population must be considered.’ Truth be told, ‘population’ is not an excellent index of people’s needs for public products. The basis of using ‘population’ can only be justified if Kenya has a good base for calculating its population distribution. It will even be more plausible if the country had a weighted population information rather than raw ‘census’ data that is bolted on fabrications.
Now, turning to the ‘needs’ principle, it fails to rationalize both efficiency and equity aspects of revenue distribution. In particular, a region can only develop when funds are allocated to it to pursue development. Since resources available for this assignment differ significantly from one county to another, a system should be created to allow the transfer of funds to areas with higher potential resources for growth. Such a design is excellent in achieving efficiency in funds or ‘resource distribution. Regimes of backward regions, including Africa, have relied on the ‘needs’ concept in sharing their revenues to validate the allocation of more funds to certain regions compared to others. Even with several other principles promising equity and fairness, the debate on the ‘most effective formula’ is far from ending.
CRA’s proposed formula raises more elbows, inviting more debate about how effective its formula has been crafted. In retrospect, CRA’s formula fails to capture equity and fairness is several fronts – some as depicted above. At this level, instead of the ‘pull and push’ game around this formula, there is a need to allow counties to be evaluated based on their systems. I recommend multiple transfers as opposed to a single formula.

Variation of Employment Terms and How to Mitigate its Negative Effects
In an employer – employee contract, just like in any other contract, parties are at liberty to amend, revise, change, vary and or enter into a new contract stipulating the new terms of service.
Section 10(5) of the Employment Act provides that for any changes of the terms of the contract of employment to be valid, the employer must in consultation with the employee revise the contract to reflect the change and notify the employee of the change in writing.
Fair labour practice dictates that the subject employee must be consulted and notified of the changes and the same put in writing contrary it would be in contravention of Article 41 (1) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010.
Any Institution and or company can therefore introduce and or implement the varied terms procedurally as hereunder;
i. Consulting/informing the employee (s) on the varied and or revised terms relating to the respective departments/offices.
ii. Issue a statement to the employee indicating change of employment terms, as relates to duration and or remuneration.
iii. Entering into a new/revised contract with the subject employees in reference to the letters of confirmation. This varied employment contract may provide that specific terms of the contract, for instance salary and capped/fixed term, would apply retrospectively as stated in commenced dates therein.
iv. The employee (s) must sign an acceptance form of the new contract or such document to signify acceptance of the new varied terms.
When will the varied terms commence/take effect? For the new varied terms of service to bind the employees, it would be required that each employee is consulted/informed and required to append his/her signature to a document stipulating and or introducing the varied terms as a sign of acceptance.
Unless otherwise expressly stated in the new varied contract of the employee, the commencement date of the varied terms of employment, including the new salary scale (or any other change (s)), shall be the date of acceptance of the varied terms, being the date of appending the signature.
I have deliberately used the phrase “unless otherwise expressly stated in the new contract letter” to mean that in the event the company intends that some clauses in the varied employment contract, such as salary, do have different effective dates, then nothing stops the company from inserting such a clause in the varied contract.
For avoidance of doubt, it is my respective view that unless specifically stated as such in the varied employment contract, the varied/new/revised/amended terms and conditions of employment contract, including salary, cannot be effected retrospectively.
Section 13 of the Employment Act also provides for change of initial employment particulars, and the employer is obligated to give the employee a statement indicating such change failure of which it would be an offence under Section 16 of the Employment Act.
On the other hand, an employee is at liberty to challenge and or complain of any provision that he/she finds detrimental as a result of such a change.
In the event that the employee does not agree to the new terms, what options can the employer pursue?
For these employee (s) contracts to be lawfully terminated, requires a valid reason(s) and accord the employee (s) a hearing prior to terminating their service.
In Walter Anuro vs Teachers Service Commission  eKLR the court observed that;
“… for a termination of employment to pass the fairness test, there must be both substantive justification and procedural fairness. Substantive justification has to do with establishment of a valid reason for the termination while procedural fairness addresses the procedure adopted by the employer in effecting the termination.”
The following scenarios may apply for their lawful termination from service;
i. For an indefinite employment contract, the proper procedure to terminate their contracts would be issuance of a proper notice according to the contract of employment or Section 35 (1)(c) and (2) of the Employment Act which provides for one calendar month notice period but still the company would be duty-bound to explain to the employees the reason(s) for their termination. In addition, they would be entitled to be heard and their representation, if any, considered before the decision to terminate their contract of service is made.
ii. In the event of a summary dismissal on the grounds of misconduct, poor performance or physical incapacity, the company would similarly be required to have a valid reason and accord the employee a hearing prior to termination.
iii. For a fixed term contract, the termination is by effluxion of time. This simply means that the contract of employment which was time bound came to an end by virtue of its own terms of duration (period of commencement and termination) as per Section 10 (3) (c) of the Employment Act.
From the above, the procedural steps stated shall assist in mitigating negative risks associated with the now heavily protected contract regime on matters employment.

How do sacral dimples make you
When you hear the phrase “Dimples of Venus”, what do you think? Do you picture her hanging out with one of her beaus, smiling coyly? Maybe you smile as you envision all the people she may have gifted with dimples in their cheeks. If you do, you’ll need to adjust your image. The Dimples of Venus are actually the two little indentations on your back, located just above your other, ahem, cheeks. Picture that now!
In the medical community they are also referred to as sacral dimples, owing to their anatomical position where the sacroiliac joint is located. The two depressions lie on each side of the spine and connect the pelvis’s iliac bone to the spine’s sacrum. There are no known health risks associated with back dimples, though that part of the back is prone to exertion. People who have lower backpain often experience it here where the lumbar spine and hips meet. Not everyone has these though, so perhaps we’re on to something about them being a gift. Found among males (called Apollo holes on men) and females of all ages and backgrounds, these dimples are typically genetic.
Since there is no muscle where the dimples form, exercise won’t give them shape, but it can help you become lean in the area where they appear. Workouts that focus on the back and spine are good, as are yoga positions that make the spinal column toned and supple. Losing fat in the lower back region can also make them more pronounced, but they can also be visible in some heavier folks whose bone structures allow for their appearance.
Having Venus dimples is considered special for quite a few reasons. Possessing them are said to bring blessings and good luck. The most interesting tidbit however, is that these tiny dents are known to be an erogenous zone for the frisky! If that isn’t a direct link to Venus herself, what is? The presence of back dimples is said to be the reason for heightened pleasure during intimacy. This is due to their connection to healthy circulation in the pelvic region. Lovers like to press them and affectionately call them “thumb handles”, signifying how they hold there mate.
In terms of beauty, you may observe that some people have their dimples pierced to add a touch of whimsy. This has become a trendy practice among women so they can accentuate their looks with low rise jeans, short tops, or bikinis. Corset makers use back dimples as a measuring marker around the hips for proper fitting. Although women and men both can have them, Venus Dimples seem to be an attractive trait in women. If you’ve never paid attention to them on yourself or anyone else, perhaps the Venus has inspired you to check them out.
I think nature has benefited from the staying at home and the lockdown from this Covid-19 pandemic. The horizon is fresh and the the view is great. Ensure you sanitize and take all precautions to contain this disease.

The three on a bed, the same evil spirit that was haunting Sam in high school finally manifest. The Devil's trick is to take advantage of human anger, and perhaps make death come to all at the maturity of sin. I recall the paraphernalia of spiders, snakes, and rats, dead cat and monkey bones. All that due to possession by lusty demons. I have deep hidden secrets of my history, and nothing hurts than to see the spider bed, now half sawn, broken, and nearing the end. Had God not choosen me from amongst the dead, I would be on mission to reverence evil, with a physical sword. Yet, my redemption makes me realize what a vanity life is. Love, marriage, success, failure,name them. Everything is meanin
gless, and the awful age is at hand. I find nothing to be proud of, and I realize there is nothing as important as my redeemed soul. Ashame the devil, resisting him at every trial. If God chose to forgive and heal, I have no right to disagree.
I try to reason what morals lead two women to share a bed with a man, and expect not to arrouse curious assumptions.
Loitering With Intent…
Loitering. There are many ridiculous offences under this. However, the full text of the charge that I am more inquisitive about is "Loitering with intent to commit a felony", which simply means a person has evil thoughts and is hoping for a chance to commit a crime. You can already sense the absurdity in this. Maybe you are one of those people with a stance, mien or even those strides that make passers by fear for dear lives? If so, I’m very sorry for you.
On a lighter note, how can you get off this derisory charge? But before that it is prudent to look at the proof - standard of proof- being beyond reasonable doubt. Reasonable doubt is not mere possible doubt. It is that state of the case which, after the entire comparison and consideration of all the evidence leaves the mind of the court in that condition that it cannot say it feels an abiding conviction to a moral certainty of the truth of the charge (Philip Muiruri Ndaruga v Republic  eKLR).
What this simply means is that the prosecution who has the burden of proof, should be certain with the evidence for lack of better terms it should be good enough (water tight)
Now let’s get into the substance of getting you off this charge of loitering with intent to commit a felony.
Fortunately, this is an arduous crime to prosecute. The main drawback I would say -for you being an advantage- with prosecuting this charge is that it requires the prosecutors to actually prove that you intended to commit a felony. Generally speaking, this means that you won’t be charged unless you were in certain circumstances that depict you were attempting to commit a felony.
For example, you were walking in a street/road that is known to have criminals or rather criminal activities do take place there, you are “dressed as a criminal” or even in a company of individuals that “appear” to be criminals, have criminal records or even hanging around a place and acting in a suspicious way this may be enough evidence for the prosecution to argue that you had intention of committing a felony.
Worry not this are mere circumstantial evidence (evidence based on inference and not on personal knowledge or observation) that can be fought with simple arguments. The thought behind this is, this type of evidence must always be narrowly examined, if only because evidence of this kind may be fabricated to cast suspicion on another (Teper v R  AC).
The earlier mentioned instances are innocent circumstances. Each matter is unique and requires an individual approach and strategy. Your arguments are key to get you off this charge.
For instance you are arrested in town at night; alone or even in the company of your friends there are several defenses you could raise.
1. Demonstrate that you were not loitering- you were on a mission to accomplish something of importance.
2. You have a lawful reason for your conduct- cite an instance that will demonstrate/show that you had a lawful reason to conduct yourself the way you did.
3. Show that you had no intention to commit a crime- try to omit/eliminate the mens rea part of a crime.
Of course, many defenses to this crime can be negated by what you say to the police when you are arrested and that’s why you should exercise your right to remain silent and not to give self-incriminating evidence. Remember, it is not your burden to prove anything.
As they say in Latin, ex nihilo nihil fit (out of nothing comes nothing).
