Siaya senator James Orengo has become the first Kenyan politician to win an election without declaring his candidature nor campaigning. The legislator floored his rivals to secure ODM ticket for his re-election bid with 140, 748 votes. His closest rival, Argwings Kodhek managed a measly 9,582 vot

The dawn of a new administration unleashes conflicting forces of change, hope, opposition, dislocation and even confusion that reverberate throughout Washington far beyond the West Wing of the White House.

In 1219, St. Francis crossed battlefields strewn with slain soldiers to reach the Muslim sultan’s camp in Egypt.

Malik al-Kamil refused to convert to Christianity.
Survivor Liang Sheng-yue was found conscious and with the remains of his partner, Liu Chen-chun, just before midday Wednesday and airlifted out of a ravine near the Narchet River in the Himalayas, according to rescuer Madhav Basnet.
Or at least that is what she believes. France is suffering from high unemployment, a stagnant economy, security fears, and the country remains bitterly divided as the government struggles to cope with immigration and integration.

We’re closing in on the first 100 days of the Trump presidency, even though it’s felt more like 100 years since the inauguration. Pundits are now trying to gauge where the president falls on the success scale, from “SAD!” to “BIGLY!,” for this somewhat important but still kinda arbitrary milestone.

Let’s face it, we don’t have that much in common with Beyoncé. So when she does something ― anything ― we can relate to, well, it’s impossible to ignore. Bey recently attended a private, star-studded dinner for Roc Nation exec Lenny Santiago’s birthday in Los Angeles.
