Raila Odinga

The annulment is a historic day for the people of Kenya and by extension, the people of the continent of Africa. For the first time in the history of African democratisation, a ruling has been made by a court nullifying the election of a president. This is a precedent-setting

Emma Gordon - Verisk Maplecroft

Investors will be concerned about the financial implications and the high risk of violence. With the possibility of the new election going to a second round and the result being contested again, political uncertainty could easily last the rest of the year. Even if the process runs smoothly, investors will fear a re-run of 2007-08 violence until a winner is confirmed and the losing side

Emma Gordon - Verisk Maplecroft

The population's lack of faith in the system is one of the reasons why politics often descends into violence. While this decision cements the view that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission was biased, it demonstrates that independent checks and balances do

David Chadwick - Mayer Brown

It is not uncommon, following a change in power, that the new government might seek to declare an investor's contract invalid or revoke key permits or licences issued to the investor. We have also seen numerous instances in the last few years, particularly following the downturn in the commodities market, of governments defaulting on their payment obligations under contracts with traders and other foreign

David Maranga

Faith Mwangi - Exotix

This unprecedented ruling gives a much-needed boost of confidence in the system, with the population suddenly seeing election irregularities being handled correctly via the courts. This will prove transformative for the future. In the short term, we are likely to see the markets weakening as political tension resumes over the next two

Pheroze Nowrojee

The scenario was similar to that of the Bermuda Triangle where no one knows how ships

Njeri Kabeberi - Greenpeace

Plastic bags are highly toxic and damage the ecosystem, they also take hundreds of years to degrade. We urge all Kenyans to know the importance of preserving the environment. Kenyans need to adopt 100% re-usable and eco-friendly alternative packaging materials in the market like the Kiondo baskets (traditional baskets) similar to the traditional tunisian baskets called 'koffa' that are now used for shopping after Tunisia banned plastic bags in March this

If you want to get the most polyphenols (and thus the most benefit) from drinking coffee, choose beans grown at high altitude, such as Nyeri in Kenya. Better still is dark Greek or Turkish roast, as these retain higher levels of polyphenols than lighter French or Italian roasts. But for the very best health, you want varieties of polyphenols. So do drink tea,

Marta Bodi

In 2008, I felt faint on a trip to Nairobi and had to be put on oxygen. I couldn't operate the flight home so I returned as a passenger. I was signed off long-term sick and spent the next two years pretty much bedridden. I had no energy, I couldn't sleep, I felt achy and I couldn't walk without help. If I breathed chemicals, I would vomit straight away. I was then diagnosed with multiple chemical sensitivity and instructed to wear a carbon-activated mask. I was like a 90-year-old in a thirtysomething's

But sadly, we have seen violent protests, in which property has been damaged, and lives have been endangered.

Muthoni Wanyeki - Amnesty International

The Independent Policing and Oversight Authority (IPOA) must immediately launch an independent and effective investigation into reported killings and where there is credible evidence of crimes, those responsible must be brought to justice. Everyone has a right to peaceful protest and they must not be hurt, injured or killed for exercising that right. Police must do everything necessary to protect life in these protests. They should prioritize dialogue and de-escalation, and only use force and firearms if all peaceful means fail, and only where necessary to protect

These characters look like they are from heaven but they also have a past. Going to court is not an alternative, we have been there before. Every time an election has been stolen, the Kenyan people have stood up to make sure changes are made to make Kenya a better place. No force on earth can go against a people united. Therefore nobody should think this is the end of the matter and nobody should make us feel guilty that we have got constitutional alternatives in interrogating the decision that has been made by this commission that is a great

But I also know that the Kenyan people as a whole will be the losers if there is a descent into violence. You can make clear that you will reject those that want to deal in tribal and ethnic hatred.

When people think about climate change affecting wildlife, they mostly think about polar bears. But wild dogs are adapted to the heat – surely they'd be fine?

In 2000 Kenya had 200,000 out of the 2 million people in the country online. Technology in Africa is not where it should be but we are getting there. When it does, Africa could use technology to tell its

I didn't pay attention to who the author was at the time. That was quite interesting for me, because his father worked in Kenya during the time I was there as well. I read the book and then I looked at the item of Barack Obama in Wikipedia, and then I noticed a picture of one of the two books, Otieno Jarieko.' I said to my wife, Well, I'm going upstairs to have a look in my library.' There it

Poaching attracts a lot of media attention, but it's only part of a big picture. If we somehow stopped poaching tomorrow, elephants would still be in big trouble. One elephant is enough to destroy a year's worth of crops for a multitude of families and create a lot of economic

Sadly, I think what you are going to find is that much of the elephant range is going to be under siege. I mean, look what the plans are for Africa. Elephants live where there's water. So does agriculture. So do humans. It will be difficult to have it

If you start to really untangle how poaching happens – how poachers are armed, how they're connected into larger networks and how those networks can move ivory and horn on a global scale, who protects them? Who provides logistics? – it resembles a war in anything but name. At the current rate of elephant decline, my 6-year-old daughter won't have an opportunity to see an elephant in the wild before she's old enough to vote. Which just is unacceptable to me, because if that is the case then we have nothing to blame that on but human apathy and

The Kenya Wildlife Service and many other conservation groups are doing fantastic conservation work. However, the reality is that there are other challenges – from a cyber perspective, from a global criminal network perspective – that really necessitate security approaches integrated into conservation

This is an indication of how wildlife rangers' roles are evolving in northern Kenya. The rangers were historically recruited and trained to protect wildlife, but given the proliferation of arms, and the drought, and the massive movement of livestock across the landscape, they are now finding themselves drawn into issues that are unconnected to

They are Kenya police reservists and as such they have a responsibility to help enforce law and order. Yes, that's stopping poaching, but increasingly here it means dealing with stock theft, road banditry, and helping the regular police deal with general

Hopefully it will inspire people to use colour in their gardens. I do think people tend to be a bit scared of colour – they play things quite safe. But colour is not scary, you've got to just try things out. As a child I was surrounded by women who wore beautiful saris, my ancestry being Indian. And I was born in Kenya, so I know of the colourful attire worn there. My main thing was I wanted to produce a garden that was very different from what you generally see at

We have been able to reach 4,200 members since we started in 2005. Out of the 4,200, we try to maintain contact with 2,500. From those 2,500, the [HIV] positive rate is about 12 percent. So we really need to know what we can do with these members to ensure they receive care and retain

I would come and help organize events. At that particular time the organization wasn't that active. We have not been able to give antiretroviral therapy to those people who are HIV-positive, because we are not able to give treatment at the moment. What we will do is refer our members to either an NGO we have negotiated with or a government facility. They think they will not be treated well. Or they say, I don't want to come out there and talk about my sexuality. You should know in Africa, things change. Politics change. We are now in an election

The prospect of a malaria vaccine is great news. Information gathered in the pilot program will help us make decisions on the wider use of this vaccine. We require new diagnostics, more effective anti-malarial drugs and new chemical formulations to prevent insecticide resistance in order to win the war against malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa.
