Hallo and welcome to today's newspaper review.

1 The standard

The main headline on the standard is about Raila's plans after the BBI.

ODM leader Raila Odinga could silently be putting up a new political formation awaiting passage of the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill, 2020, at the referendum before shifting gears to focus on 2022 elections.

Although he has not officially announced he will vie for the top seat, Raila is regarded as a top contender due to the huge grassroots support he enjoys across the country.

In the past few weeks, Raila has made a passionate appeal to Kenyans to tone down on politics until after the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) process is concluded.

His remarks came as NASA co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper Party) and Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) called on the ODM leader to support them because they backed him in previous elections.

However, Raila and ODM have insisted that Mudavadi, Kalonzo and Moses Wetang'ula (Ford Kenya) led to NASA’s collapse after they skipped his swearing-in ceremony as the people's president after the contested 2017 presidential election.

Coast tour

The remarks were followed by Raila’s extensive tour of Kilifi, Mombasa, Taita Taveta and Kwale counties.

Raila seems to be targeting key individuals from each of the regions he has visited and continues to visit as he seeks to consolidate his support ahead of 2022.

In another story, Ruto's men have now fired back at claims by jubilee that it has ejected him from being the party deputy leader saying that officials who did that have no powers to eject the him.

Finally MPs controversial trip to Dubai costing over ksh 20 millions continues to raise eyebrows especially happening at a time when the cost of living has gone through the roof following Increased taxation.

2 Daily nation

The main headline on the daily Nation touches on the upcoming Machakos senatorial By-election that has attracted the attention of President uhuru kenyatta.

His exellence seems concerned by the violence that is likely to happen as it was with matungu and kabuchai.

To avoid a repeat of the same, Uhuru is said to have urged all the six Political party big wigs to focus on the big picture and go to the election United to avert what happened in the last By-elections.

The leaders that the president talked to through a video link include Gideon Moi, Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka, Raila Odinga Charity Ngilu and Moses wetangula.

In another story, parents are staring at another long holyday as Schools are set to close this week.

Schools will be closing in order to allow for class 8 and Form four sit for their national exams.

Finally the media fraternity was yesterday thrown into mourning following the death of veteran radio journalist Robin njogu who succumbed to COVID-19.

3 businese daily.

The busines daily reports that KRA and Nairobi county will start home seizures in the city for those landlords who haven't been paying land rates.

In another story, the auditor general has revealed that ksh 1 billion which was meant to be given to the youth enterprises as soft loans was instead spent on travel and other perks by the employees.

In yet another story, financial reporting centre will now be requiring lawyers to report the source of money by their clients in a move that is meant to curb money laundering.

5 Taifa Leo

The Swahili publication's headline is about the missing Tanzanian president John Magufuli as the country still remains mum over his where-abouts and health status.

The police are now arresting anybody inquiring about the where-abouts of the president who was last seen 18 days ago.

In another story, Kenyans have many a time found themselves in trouble after buying stollen phones. Beware of cheap secondhand phones being sold in the market.

In yet another alarming story, ICU hospital beds are in full capacity as COVID-19 cases continue to surge.

And finally Taifa Leo reports that over 1.4 Million Kenyans are at risk of dying of hunger in North Eastern as the drought situation worsens. For these and more stories, grab yourself a copy of your choice.

Do you the president's move to only talk to the six party leaders excluding Ruto will help avoid a repeat of matungu and kabuchai violence?
