The Sh126 million project was meant to improve the performance and profitability of indigenous chicken and Irish potato value chains, as well as incomes for residents. The project of creating indigenous poultry and Irish potato model villages was implemented in six sub-counties and started with 100 households per village in January, 2020. It has a total of 800 indigenous chicken farmers, and 400 Irish potato farmers benefiting directly, translating to 6,000 people benefiting directly. Farmers who previously had poor chicken breeds and lacked knowledge in poultry rearing and Irish potato production, such as Solomon Gitonga, shared their success stories. Kawira also launched a Sh12 million Irish potato storage-cum processor at Ntirimiti in Buuri.
South Korean soccer player Lee Kang-in is seen on a screen during a press conference to announce the South Korean squad for the Qatar 2022 World Cup in Seoul, South Korea, Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022. Still, even if Son is healthy, South Korea is seen as an outsider to get out of Group H, which contains Uruguay, Portugal and Ghana. Qatar marks South Korea’s 11th appearance at the World Cup and its 10th straight. South Korea breezed through Asian qualifying but has looked underwhelming in recent friendlies, including Friday’s laborious 1-0 win over Iceland at home. With Son recovering from an injury, the pressure is on other attackers such as Wolverhampton winger Hwang Hee-chan and Jeonbuk Hyundai forward Cho Gue-sung to step up.2 months ago The Standard
This has been the continuous nature of our relationship with our East African neighbours. Kenya banned imports of milk from Uganda, and Uganda banned imports of chicken from Kenya. We export about $500 million to Tanzania and their exports to Kenya have only recently exceeded their imports from us. The only way Kenya can move from its current unemployment problems is to open the economy to exports and increase manufacturing for export. Kenya exports $350 million of clothes to the United States, that is less than one per cent of what the USA imports.2 months ago The Standard
A woman, center, leaves to the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office at Ulsan Jungbu police station in Ulsan, South Korea, on September 15, 2022.

Earlier this month, South Korean Justice Minister Han Dong-hoon issued an order for the woman to be extradited.1 month ago The Standard
G-20 members include both industrialized and developing nations and account for 80 per cent of the world’s economic activity and two-thirds of the world’s population. Ukraine and RussiaAs host, Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo has tried to bridge rifts within the G-20 over the war in Ukraine. The war will likely prevent the G-20 leaders from issuing a formal joint communique at the conclusion of the meeting. As the U.S. and allies in Europe and Asia contend with an increasingly assertive China, other G-20 economies like India, Brazil and host Indonesia are walking a tightrope between the bigger powers. The Bali summit comes on the heels of a United Nations climate conference in Egypt and a summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in Cambodia that Biden and some other G-20 leaders attended.2 months ago The Standard
APTo make it worse, Suarez boasted after the 2010 game: “Truth is, it was worth it.”On Thursday, he remained unrepentant. By beating Uruguay in their final Group H match, Ghana would advance to the round of 16, while knocking Uruguay out of the tournament. A draw could also be enough depending on the result of South Korea vs. Portugal. Stoking it just a little bit more, Suarez said the 2010 game against Ghana does still mean something to Uruguay. “We are going to put our lives and soul into this match,” Suarez said.1 month ago The Standard
Portugal coach Fernando Santos (AP Image)Bruno Fernandes, who also played with Ronaldo at Manchester United, was the only member of the Portugal squad to indicate Ronaldo wasn’t pleased with being benched. He replaced Ronaldo late in the opening World Cup match against Ghana, and again against Uruguay. With Ronaldo, Portugal has advanced to the round of 16 of the World Cup in four of his five tournaments, but he’s never played in a final at the tournament. Portugal in 2006 lost to France in the semifinals — the deepest Ronaldo has ever reached at the World Cup. Messi has nine career World Cup goals, and like Ronaldo, has never won the tournament.1 month ago The Standard
Kenya has 42 golf courses, according to former Kenya Golf Union chairman Muchau Githiaka. The few golf courses are distributed all over the country but predominantly in well-watered highlands or their neighbourhoods. Golf courses run the same risk as other open spaces like school fields, parks and forests. One easy way to increase the number of golf courses is to have shorter courses, say par 30 or 40. Building more golf courses will bring down the cost and demystify it, leading to a healthier and happier nation.7 days ago The Standard
