Families spend night in the cold after houses demolished

Kwale, KENYA: More than ten families in Mililani Village, Msambweni in Kwale County on Thursday spent the night in the cold, after their houses were allegedly demolished by police officers.

This is said to have  happened after a private developer who claims to own the settlement scheme land allegedly directed police to do the mass destruction.

One of the residents Salim chilungu said they were allocated the land back 1977 but the developer has visited the area three times setting the houses on fire.

“Last year they just came from nowhere and torched our four houses. It really pains me that as it happens no leader has come forward to fight for us,” he said.

Chilungu explained that few years ago when they went to search for their title deeds they were told to wait a little bit but later on found out that the land was bearing other peoples’ names.

Saumu Mwasanzuwa could not control her emotions as she explained what transpired during the incident

“They came here and broke our house, burnt it and went ahead to cut all the trees in the farm,” she said with tears rolling down her cheeks.

She added that during the incident she also lost clothes and school uniforms belonging to her children.

“I have stayed here for around fifty years cultivating this land. I hear that she has bought this plot but she would have just approached us in a good way,” she added.

Saumu noted that although the incident has happened severally, this one was most severe as they have also lost their domestic animals.

“Last year they came and did the same. Right now the damage has been bad. My cows, chicken and eggs have also gone” she said.

Kwale OCPD Partick Oduma confirmed to Baraka FM that the shamba had a case since 2012 and by October 2015 the businessman won the case at the Kwale court.

He said the residents ignored following a command of parting the place and they even tortured police last year.

This lead to the area OCS implementing  the court order where the work of the police was only to provide security unlike burning the place as it was earlier said.

Kilifi, KENYA: NSE-listed investment company Centum  in the verge of launching the construction of Vipingo Mega City in Kilifi County early this year.

This comes after the company came to terms with the residents and owners of the area, in regard to the land dispute which took center stage for quite some time last year.

Dr. James Mworia, the company’s Chief Executive Officer told Baraka FM on Thursday that architects are in the final stages of designing the construction plan.

Among the constructions are Vipingo Vocational training Institute, Industrial park and infrastructure development covering 10,254 acres.

Speaking in Kilifi, Dr Mworia said the ground breaking ceremony for the training institute, the industrial park and the infrastructure development is scheduled for early this year, while other development programs slated in the project will continue later as it commences.

“We are in the final stages of designing the construction plan for the Mega City and have already marked the setup of the Vipingo vocational training institute as the first component and ground breaking will be launched sooner than later,” said Dr. Mworia.

He said some other interested stakeholders have expressed their interest  on the industrial park, which he said had received overwhelming support from other investors.

“We have people who are ready to join hands and set up industries in this project, we are also looking at the infrastructure targeting to desalinate sea water so that it can be safe for human consumption,” he added.

Dr. Mworia added that the project which has been termed as one of the biggest in Africa, is expected to take several years before completion, since there will be other stakeholders who are expected to invest in it in the future.

Centum Investment Committee chairman Chris Kirubi said the multi-billion project will revolutionize Kilifi County and make it the top investment hub county in the Coast region.

“The training institute and all other projects that will be undertaken by Centum will bring great change to the lives of the people of Kilifi, the entire country and the world,” Dr. Kirubi said.

He said people of Kilifi should not stagnant in development but allow opportunities to change their lives.

“Do you want to remain in the days of David Livingstone and John Speck? No you must move forward in development and instead of calling yourselves Kilifians, shun that to call yourselves Kenyans,” added Kirubi

Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi said the county had so far signed several agreements with investors totaling to more than Sh 3.5 billion since last year.

“The opportunities that are in greater Kilifi County have started to emerge. Recently we signed over four agreements with various investors who want to do business in Kilifi including a Chinese firm which is investing Sh2.5 billion in fruits and vegetable processing,” said Kingi.

Buy cheap steroids in the United States
Anabolic and androgenic steroids (AAS) – allow you to achieve incredible results in the shortest possible time, such as: gain muscle mass, burn fat, make the body more relief and muscles harder. How do these miracles work, first of all, they speed up protein synthesis, reduce the time required for recovery, and strengthen your bones and joints. AAS contains active ingredients that are derivatives of testosterone or dihydrotestosterone. However, they may differ significantly in terms of the combination of anabolic and androgenic activity from the starting substances. It is because of this that steroids can be used to collect large amounts of muscle mass and get rid of fat deposits. The preparations can be used as solos or combined with each other. However, side effects are unavoidable, but any side effects will only be caused by the abuse of the steroids. In shop with cheap steroids you will receive full advice on cycle development and cycle exit (PCT) absolutely free of charge.

There are many variations of the so-called “cycle”, i.e. combinations with different anabolic steroids, some of which work like fat incinerators, others, on the contrary, will allow you to gain the muscle mass you need. In our anabolic steroid shop, you will find steroids for any of the above purposes.

Properties of anabolic steroids
Before you buy steroids, you should familiarize yourself with the mechanism of their action and peculiarities of their use, as the cycles of anabolic intake differ significantly for professionals and beginners.

Steroids (synonymous with anabolics, translated from Greek as “build-up”) are a group of pharmacological steroids that mimic the effect of male sex hormone – testosterone – thanks to its composition. By actively participating in metabolism and other physiological reactions, steroids affect the production of protein in muscle cells. This mechanism is called an anabolic process. In addition to the rapid increase in muscle mass, steroids are used to produce steroids in the body:

Increase in the growth of strength indexes due to accelerated protein synthesis;
Increased endurance, so that people can work longer and more effectively;
Changing the psychological background in the form of an increased desire to train, the ability to endure pain more easily and to quickly recover from exercise;
Improving muscle memory.
Steroids also have a strong anti-catabolic effect. This results in anabolic reactions. The main task of steroid athletes is to suppress catabolism, as this principle will be used not only to build nutrition and develop sports exercise complexes, but also to develop pharmacological cycles.

The result of anabolic activity is:

Increase in muscle mass up to 5-8 kg per month;
increase in endurance and strength;
Increasing the number of active red blood cells;
strengthening of bone and joint tissues;
Reduction of the fat layer.
When using steroids, the number of lipid compounds is reduced due to the accelerated reaction of metabolism.

When deciding to buy steroids, you should also know about the androgenic properties of the steroids. Each anabolic, regardless of price or any other factors has androgenic activity:

Masculinization – the appearance of secondary male genitalia in women;
Virilization – male type of body build;
growth of body hair;
appearance of acne, etc.
There is a large number of steroid steroids, which take anabolic properties prevail over androids. The ratio of indicators can be found out thanks to the anabolic index. The higher the coefficient, the safer the steroid is. It should be recalled that the manifestation of androgenic properties is purely individual and does not depend on the type of anabolic.

Buy steroids in the U.S. with a high anabolic index can be in our online store. We sell only safe products.

In addition to the anabolic, anti-catabolic and androgenic effects of steroids contribute:

to increase appetite;
the disappearance of a sense of fear;
the appearance of self-confidence;
sociability, relaxedness;
increasing libido.
The increase in sexual desire is explained by the increase in testosterone in the blood flow due to the introduction of anabolic steroids.
