« Il n’y a pas beaucoup d’entreprises qui disposent de la station de ravitaillement verticalement intégrée de Nikkiso avec des systèmes de liquéfaction internes et des systèmes de chargement de remorques, des pompes cryogéniques, des tuyaux isolés sous vide, des cuves isolées sous vide, des vaporisateurs cryogéniques, des contrôles industriels, des services d’autorisation, d’installation et de maintenance », a déclaré Mike Mackey, Président, Ravitaillement en carburant et solutions, Nikkiso Clean Energy & Industrial Gases. « Nous construisons des stations de ravitaillement alternatives depuis 1998 et nous sommes fiers que notre travail contribue à un monde plus propre et plus sain. »

Plusieurs stations d’hydrogène liquide ont déjà été mises en service en Corée du Sud, ravitaillant avec succès des autobus l’un après l’autre, et augmentant leur capacité. Les autres stations en Corée du Sud seront mises en service au cours des douze prochains mois.

Vihiga Residents Encouraged To Venture Into Indigenous Vegetable Farming


Residents of Vihiga County have been urged to venture into indigenous vegetable farming to improve their living standards.

Speaking during a field inspection tour in one of the farms at Jeptorol, Hamisi Sub County, Vihiga County Anglican Development Services (ADS) Coordinator Lydia Khayongo advised residents to plant indigenous vegetables, which would guarantee more money.

Khayongo said if the farmers could form groups, they could sell the indigenous vegetables to Nairobi, where they were on great demand and this could earn them higher income.

She said in Vihiga County, ADS Western has partnered with the Bukura Agricultural College to train 14 women groups in five value chains including indigenous vegetables farming, poultry farming, fish farming, dairy farming and tissue culture banana farming.

The Coordinator said Mugumu Support Women Group in Hamisi Sub County is one of the groups that has been trained in indigenous vegetables farming, asking them to train other residents to use modern farming techniqu
es.

She encouraged them to make use of the poultry and dairy project manure to enrich the vegetables, which would improve their quality and quantity.

The groups have also been trained on how to make organic fertilizer, using locally available material.

Khayongo now wants the groups to improve the quality of their farms and sell the surplus produce to help them to earn extra money.

One of the group members Debora Kedogo thanked ADS Western for training them saying youths and women can now get their own money, which has empowered them economically.

The British Army Continues To Receive Sharp Criticism Over Crimes Committed In Laikipia


The British Army has continued to receive sharp criticism over alleged atrocities committed in Laikipia County.

Speaking in Doldol on Wednesday in an event attended by British High Commissioner to Kenya Neil Wigan, Laikipia North Member of Parliament Sarah Korere slammed British Army Training Unit (BATUK) claiming that their presence in Laikipia County was not beneficial.

‘As it is today, the British Army are only training in settlers’ farms not minding they trained in our land for 40 years without paying a cent and we are asking of your kind government not to pay us anything but do something in kind to show that we hosted you for the longest time,’ she said.

She pointed out her constituents have lagged behind in education and only allowed to attend school four years to independence hence the high illiteracy level in the area.

‘To be precise, this is the place where, during colonial era, the Maasai of Mukogodo were never allowed to go to school, we were allowed four years to independence and that is why w
e are lagging behind,” she claimed.

The lawmaker said that BATUK needed to take responsibility over atrocities committed or else they would be charged in a court of law.

She urged the UK government to support infrastructure including schools adding education was the only way to accelerate development in the region. ‘The only thing that is going to accelerate our development faster is education and I am asking we partner with your government to make sure we boost education in this area through schools’ infrastructures among others,” she said.

The British High Commissioner however steered clear of the atrocities claimed by the legislator and left moments after making his remarks.

EACC Recovers Grabbed Public Land In Nyahururu


The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has recovered and reverted to the government a 2.5-acre piece of land valued at Sh.110 million that some 12 private individuals had grabbed in Nyahururu Sub-County, Laikipia County.

According to the EACC, the land had been reserved for the Nyahururu bus park and had been irregularly, illegally and unlawfully alienated to favour private individuals. The parcel of land that had been earmarked for the construction of a multi-million Mall has now been reverted to the Laikipia County Government which is the rightful owner.

EACC Spokesperson Eric Ngumbi revealed that the land parcels, cumulatively measuring 2.5 acres with a current market value of approximately Sh110 million, were illegally allocated to private individuals who had commenced commercial developments including the construction of a mega shopping mall when EACC moved in.

Addressing the press from the site of the recovered property in Nyahururu, Ngumbi said that the Commission, through its Central Regi
onal Office in Nyeri, launched investigations upon receipt of a complaint from Mitumba traders in Nyahururu Town on 21st February, 2022.

The complainants had reported that the land reserved for extension of Nyahururu Bus Park, which the traders were using, had been irregularly, wrongfully, illegally and unlawfully allocated to private developers who had commenced construction of commercial building and were evicting the traders.

Speaking at the same event Nyahururu Mitumba Traders led by their Chairman Peter Maina Mwangi thanked the EACC for saving them from eviction by the grabbers and urged the Commission to assist in recovery of all the other plots grabbed in the area. They called upon the County Government to develop the land recovered by EACC for use by the traders.

‘Were it not for determination and the zeal to pursue the matter in court and with the relevant agencies, the land could have been grabbed and developed, and thus denying the mitumba traders a place to conduct their businesses,’ said Maina
.

The commission ascertained that there was unlawful alienation of the land to favour private individuals and reported the matter to Nyahururu Environment and Lands Court in an attempt to recover the grabbed land.

Investigations had shown that the land in question had been donated by the Catholic Archdiocese of Nyeri for the construction of Ngare Naro Primary School in 1972.

However, in 1984 the now defunct Nyandarua County Council working with the then commissioner of lands hived off 2 acres of the land for the expansion of the Nyahururu bus park with a disclaimer to the school that if the land was not used in the expansion of the bus park it would be reverted back to the school.

Through underhand dealings, the Nyandarua County Council working with the then commissioner of lands subdivided the land into 12 portions and letters of allotment issued to private individuals.

According to EACC, under the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) negotiations, the defendants who were the allottees agreed to volunta
rily surrender the title documents to the commission.

Six grabbers had already begun developing the parcel of land in a joint venture to construct a shopping mall and were at the foundation stage by the time the EACC struck.

Following the finalization of the ADR Process in November 2023, the Court delivered a consent Judgement and issued declarations and orders revoking all the titles held by the 12 individuals.

The Court further issued a permanent injunction restraining all the defendants, their agents, servants or any other person acting on their behalf from any dealings with the land parcels except by way of surrender back to the Government.

The Commission is currently in the process of transferring the land back to Laikipia County Government.

‘The Commission has since written to the Land Registrar to rectify the land Register by cancelling all entries relating to the defendants and issue new titles in the name of Laikipia County Government, as ordered by the Court.

‘The Commission has 10 other recov
ery suits before the Nyahururu Environment and Land Court seeking recovery of Government land and houses in Nyahururu,’ said Ngumbi.

Among them is the land worth Sh.200 million hosting the Agricultural Mechanization Services (AMS) established in 1946 to support potato farmers through subsidized hire of plant and tractor services.

Three private developers have grabbed the land and obtained titles even with the machinery on site.
