A huge explosion near the centre of Beirut killed at least 10 people and sending shockwaves across the Lebanese capital, shattering glass in people’s homes and causing apartment balconies to collapse, witnesses and security sources said.

The blast occurred in the city’s port area, where there were warehouses housing explosives, Lebanon’s state news agency NNA and two security sources said. A third security source said there were chemcials stored in the area.

Footage of the blast shared around by residents on social media showed a column of smoke rising from the port district followed by an enormous blast. Those who filming what initially appeared to be a big blaze where thrown backwards by the shock.

At least 10 bodies were taken to hospitals, a security source and a medical source told Reuters.

It was not immediately clear what caused the blaze that set off the blast or what kind of explosives were in the warehouses. The governor of Beirut port told Sky News that a team of firefighters at the scene had “disappeared” after the explosion.

“I saw a fireball and smoke billowing over Beirut. People were screaming and running, bleeding. Balconies were blown off buildings. Glass in high-rise buildings shattered and fell to the street,” said a Reuters witness.

The health minister told Reuters there was a “very high number” of injured. Al Mayadeen TV said hundreds were wounded.

Another Reuters witness said she saw heavy grey smoke near the port area and then heard an explosion and saw flames of fire and black smoke: “All the downtown area windows are smashed and there are wounded people walking around. It is total chaos.”

U.N. spokesman Farhan Haq told reporters it was not immediately clear what the cause was, and that there was no indication of any injuries to any U.N. personnel.

“We do not have information about what has happened precisely, what has caused this, whether it’s accidental or manmade act,” he said.

Senate votes to adjourn debate

The Senate has voted to adjourn the debate on the revenue-sharing formula. 34 senators voted in support of adjournment while 26 voted against. One senator, Amos Wako, voted to abstain.

The motion to adjourn was proposed by Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.

SENATOR WETANGULA: The country is sitting on the edge, all eyes are on us-The Senate. This window we have given ourselves, which was my idea in the first place but the House rejected it last week, we have now retraced our steps. Every senator in this house represents all the 47 counties. Let us not waste time, let’s look for a venue, let’s sit with CRA to come up with a solution.

SENATOR ORENGO: Most of the time we talk about equity throughout but if you look at the Bill of Rights, it talks about equality. Dealing with equality is much easier than dealing with equity. When it comes to public finance and allocation of resources, we are dealing with the concept of equity. It is better for us to sit and attain a consensus as opposed to having gainers and losers.

MAJORITY LEADER POGHISIO: I must congratulate Senator Murkomen for being able to change his mind today.

SENATOR MUTULA Jnr: I urge senator Poghisio to provide us with a direction together with Senator Orengo because the division we have seen in this house is in violation of article 96/3

The InterContinental Hotels has sent a notice of intention to declare redundancy to all staff within 45 days.

This is after the management of the hotel said that it is considering a permanent closure and winding up its operations in Kenya.

The 51-year-old hotel has set up communication channels to receive and address any concerns from the staffers in relation to the redundancy process.

“In line with section 40 (1) (b) of the Employment Act, 2007 we hereby give you 45 days’ notice of the hotel’s intention to declare your pasition redundant,” read part of the memo sent to one of the staffers.

The hotel has been cagey as to why it is winding up its operation in Kenya, but the memo said it was “for operational reasons”.

In 2019, there was a plan to auction the hotel over unpaid debts.

It is believed that the luxurious hotel owes a debt of Sh700 million.

The hospitality industry has been one of the most hit by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with Fairmont the Norfolk hotel closing down indefinitely in May 2020.

James Maina Mwangi thought men weren’t supposed to wear colourful clothes.

“Men knew how to wear clothes in black, brown, grey or dark blue. Those were men’s colours. “But God gave me wisdom and showed me all the different colours I can wear to be different from everybody else and that’s how I started.”

Mwangi, 59, dressed in yellow suit pants and jacket with a striped red, blue and yellow shirt joined by a red and yellow tie and yellow hat, said that he drew curious reactions 25 years ago when he would go out in his colourful suits.

But soon enough, some began emulating him.

“Now you can see men wearing all kinds of colours,” he said.

Mwangi recalls the days when as a kid he only had one shirt, washing it daily and putting it on even before it dried. People would laugh at him because of how poor he was and called him crazy. But he would always say, “one day I will be a star.”

He dropped out of school at 12 as his family could not afford to pay for him to continue with his studies. But then he started acting as a youth leader in his community that gained him popularity which then helped him get a job as a bar manager in a local pub.

And now things have changed. He now has about 160 suits, over 200 shoes, 300 hats and much more. And in the era of coronavirus, he has added another item to his collection – the colourful mask.

Mwangi, who now earns a living as a Matatu organizer, helping the infamous Nairobi buses determine their routes, said he liked to lend some of his suits to others at church and some of the street children in his neighbourhood in Nairobi. He urged donors to help.

“Things have become harder now because of COVID-19. This country has no money,” he said.

But when it comes to his style, there is no one who dressed like him, Mwangi said.

“I am the best,” he said.

18 staffers at the State Department for Devolution have tested positive for COVID-19, this is according to Principal Secretary Charles Sunkuli.

According to an internal memo from Sunkuli, a COVID-19 mass testing exercise conducted on 23rd July, 2020 revealed that 18 officers tested positive for the disease out of the 128 samples that were tested.

Consequently, Sunkuli is now asking all staff to self-isolate for 14 days i.e from 3rd August to 16th August, 2020, in order to curb further spread of the novel coronavirus.

“I wish to thank the officers who undertook the test and since the results delayed, we need to do a further testing after two weeks,” read the memo from Sunkuli.

The officers will be required to report back on 17th August, upon which another mass testing shall be conducted.

This means that all operations and functions of the Ministry’s departments will come to a halt.

The debate on the revenue-sharing formula will be permanently solved if we find a way of containing theft of public resources, this is according to renowned political analyst Herman Manyora.

Speaking on TV47’s Pundits Night show on Monday, August 3, Manyora says that currently the country is losing 1/3rd of the national budget through rampant corruption by government officials.

“Let’s find a way of containing theft of public resources so that we put sufficient resources to the counties, so that the questions of what formula is used may not be as important as it is now,” said Manyora.

According to the University of Nairobi lecturer, the Senate is also supposed to work on strengthening their oversite roles and come up with better mechanisms that will put governors in check as far as public funds are concerned.

“Let’s put more resources to the counties and, improve on the oversight structures so that governors don’t have a free hand to spent money anyhaul. Governors in counties are the engineers, they are the procurement officers, they are the experts of about everything, that should not be the case,” added Manyora.

Showdown at the Senate

Another showdown looms in the Senate today as senators are expected to debate on the controversial revenue-sharing formula.

The Senators are caught between passing the Commission on Revenue Allocation’s (CRA) third generation formula proposal that puts population as the key parameter of revenue allocation to counties and Senator Sakaja’s proposed amendments that ensure no county loses a single cent.

ODM leader Raila Odinga met with a section of Jubilee leaders over the weekend to hatch a plan on how senators from both sides of the handshake will pass the formula with CRA’s proposal.

Some of the leaders who attended the meeting that was convened at COTU boss Francis Atwoli’s home in Kajiado were former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth and Jubilee Party vice chairperson David Murathe.
