Tivo, Catholics and Mayor Dick

Catholic Church Insurance
According to the East African, the Nairobi Catholic Church has been licensed to start an insurance company, which it hopes will save it from paying out $20 million in premiums each year. This struck me as odd because I just learnt that, in Pakistan, drivers carry no car insurance, because one can’t insure “against the will of God” - which is what accidents are.

“TIVO” comes to Kenya
Also in the East African, Multichoice (K) expects to release personal video recorders on the Kenyan market by June 2006, which will allow viewers to record programs while watching others from their DSTV satellite dish packages.

Nairobian’s Revolt
Long before the constitution became a national debate issue, a group of Nairobians had taken on the Nairobi City Council charging that, since the City did not provide services, accountability, transparency, security, or enforcement of zoning laws residents should not pay any rates or taxes to the City and went to court with their fight. They are collectively known as “We Care About Nairobi DO IT!” and can be reached at P O box 66116 Nairobi Tel: 4447737,4448072 Website: Office: Viking house near Pavement Restaurant & Westlands Roundabout. To show instant support of We Can Do It, court action against City Hall. SMS to 2929 on either Celtel or Safaricom plus your name. (SMSs are charged at 5/- above normal rate. A % of the cost goes toward the legal fund.) They are also open to associate membership at a cost; for individual, at an annual fee of Kshs 2. 000 and to institutions for an annual fee of Kshs 50,000
