    Under Kenyan law, attempted suicide is a crime. Government and civil society groups plan to meet this month to discuss a roadmap to changing or repealing the law. They say that persons who have attempted suicide need medical help, not punishment. Section 226 of the Penal Code defines attempted suicide as a misdemeanour. Categorized under the section Offences Connected With Murder and Suicide, a misdemeanour is punishable by a jail term of up to two years, or a fine, or both, according to Section 36 of the Penal Code. A 2014 report by the World Health Organization estimates that the suicide rate for males in Kenya is 24.4 for every 100,000, and the rate for females is 8.4. Kenya’s National Police Services’ annual crime report recorded 320 cases of suicide in 2015. Merab Liyai Mulindi, a volunteer counsellor at Befrienders Kenya, says the silence surrounding the issue makes it difficult to determine the real numbers of people who have attempted or have died by suicide in Kenya.

Has Cooperative University of Kenya Vice Chancellor Prof. Kamau Ngamau, or any of his senior management team seen this disgraceful poster the university is associating itself with for #16DaysActivism2021? Is this the official view on SGBV? And on men - as incapable of utu? https://t.co/JljR7TazWT

Finally! The Parliament of Kenya passed a bill preventing employers from asking job applicants for various clearance certificates before offering them a job. "Young people should not be punished for looking for a job, let them earn money first to afford to pay for this documentation."

    After the recent enactment of Companies Act 2015 and Insolvency Act 2015, various regulations and guidelines have been issued with a view to make the implementation of these acts easier and to resolve areas of conflict or uncertainty. A new Income Tax Act is expected to be introduced in 2018, amending the 1974 version and modernising the tax system. Amendments to the Banking Act 2015 (enacted through the Banking (Amendment) Act 2016), capped the rate of interest chargeable by banks, and has significantly tightened credit and liquidity in the country (particularly for the SME sector). According to a recent analysis by Cytonn Investments, access to credit in the private sector is at an eight-year low of 2.1% (in May 2017) compared to 25.8% at its peak in June 2014 (https://www.cytonn.com/topicals/topical-july-23-2017).

    Landlords usually exert unreasonable control over tenants with regards to payment of rent, increasing the rent, and evictions. The main reason is that the tenants do not know their rights. Ill also like to know something about tenant law.

    First, for a tenant who’s on a long-term registered lease, the lease terms will operate. A lease provides the lessee security of tenure for the entire period until the lease period is expired. For instance, if you were paying rent on a monthly basis, the Landlord should give a one month’s termination notice. Upon the lapse of the termination notice, the Tenant becomes a trespasser. The Landlord can apply to the Environment and Land Court for an eviction order. The Court of Appeal in Gusii Mwalimu Investment Co. Ltd & 2 others vs. Mwalimu Hotel Kisii Ltd, Civil Appeal No. 160 of 1995 applied by the High Court in Teresia Irungu vs. Jackton Ocharo & 2 others [2013] eKLR, held that: “It is trite law that unless the tenant consents or agrees to give up possession the landlord has to obtain an order of a competent court or a statutory tribunal (as appropriate) to obtain an order for possession.” 2. There are different types of eviction in Kenya: - a. Eviction of a Tenant at a residential unit; b. Eviction of a Tenant from business premises protected under Cap 301; and c. Eviction of unlawful/illegal settlers. By first knowing where you fall within these categories, then you’ll know how to defend your rights on the same.
