Anger in Kenya as MPs watch World Cup at taxpayers’ expense

A group of Kenyan MPs have traveled to Russia to watch the World Cup at the taxpayers’ expense, angering many citizens.

Kenya has never qualified for the World Cup finals and has not reached any major international tournament since the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations.

The country’s The Star newspaper reported that around 20 MPs travelled to Russia at the beginning ofJuly and were expected to attend Sunday’s final between Croatia and France.

The cost of accommodation, per diems and match tickets was being met by the Kenyan government, it said.

The newspaper estimates the total cost of the MPs’ trip to be around $450,000 (Sh45 million, 385,000 euros).

By comparison, the minimum wage in Kenya is between $120 and $280 per month, depending on the skill.

In parliament, National Assembly speaker Justin Muturi confirmed the trip but said it was “not a bad thing”.

“They must prepare a report when they come back and table it in parliament. That’s the standard procedure,” he said.

Kenyans online have reacted angrily to move by the parliamentarians.

  39. The very root of your writing whilst sounding agreeable at first, did not really sit very well with me after some time. Someplace within the sentences you actually managed to make me a believer unfortunately only for a short while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in logic and one might do nicely to help fill in those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I could definitely end up being impressed.

  40. Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

  42. Theresa May says she has secured “legally binding” changes to her Brexit deal, a day ahead of MPs voting on it.

    But European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker” warned if the deal was voted down there was “no third chance”.

    They spoke at a joint press conference in Strasbourg after a late meeting.

  43. These three figures — William Rick Singer, Mark Riddell and Rudolph Meredith, respectively — are at the center of the nationwide scandal in which 33 parents are accused of using their wealth and means to help their children game the college admissions system.
    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who. Instead, they are named as Cooperating Witness 1, 2 and 3, and each agreed to plead guilty and to cooperate with the government in the hope of obtaining leniency when they are sentenced, the complaint says.

  44. Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.
