As the Zonal President of Kenya, Dr Kantaria will be responsible for growing the network and uniting members in supporting and advancing the philosophy of the organization through various acts of charity.

Dr  Kantaria is the first third generation Chairman of the organization after his granduncle Mr. G.D. Kantaria and his father Rajnikant Kantaria.

I plan to work with members of the Lohana community and people of good will in making Kenya and the world a better home for all of us,” said  Dr Kantaria in his acceptance speech.

Dr Kantaria has been a stalwart of social good as the Managing Director of Elgon Kenya, guided by the philosophy of the company that has been consistent in its philanthropy since it first set up shop over 120 years ago.

From building the Nyanjenga Primary School in Limuru in the 1980s for  poor children whose parents worked in neighbouring tea plantations in the 1980s, Elgon Kenya has, under the leadership of Dr Kantaria, invested in social causes across the education, health and agriculture sectors.

The company has been involved in the construction of an ultra-modern health facility based in Parklands Nairobi that seeks to make healthcare affordable by stemming the rising trend of patients seeking medical services abroad due to lack of facilities locally that can match the emerging health threats.

The 30-bed Kantaria ward at MP Shah Hospital that consists of private self-contained and duplex rooms in addition to general ward beds that was part of the investment by the Elgon Kenya directors, has been hailed as crucial in providing quality treatment at affordable cost.

In the education sector the company has invested in construction and expansion of learning blocks, books, paying school fees and contributing to school feeding programes, guided by the principle of its fore fathers; that of empowering the young ones who hold the key to the prosperity of the country. The focus is on children from humble backgrounds and in schools located in remote areas from Ngelani Ranch Primary School in Athi River to education centers in Mwingi.

At the post-secondary school level, Elgon Kenya has tapped in the skill of young people by encouraging them to embrace vocational training and encouraging young people to embrace education. The company has been working with St Joseph Vocational Institute for the poor in Mlolongo, that aims to equip the youth with skills on latest technology and development of micro and small enterprises, one of the pillars of the country’s economy. The institute has gone ahead to produce top notch automotive engineers and mechanics in the country.

Elgon Kenya has also been working with the elderly to alleviate their suffering by investing in homes for the aged. In one such home, Bethsaida Home for the Aged in Kitengela, the company has assisted the home in installing a three phase electricity line which has meant cutting cost of power. With the installation of power, the home has invested in boreholes that are now watering the horticultural produces grown at the 1.8 hectares land that is owned by the home.

Dr  Kantaria is the patron of the annual National Farmers Awards  that seeks to reward the country’s best food producers while bringing the industry under one roof.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Love At First Sight?

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
