US President Barack Obama at the State of the Union address last night pressed on congress to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the coming months, a bill he said he will be ready to sign right away.

President Obama said a comprehensive bill would include stronger border security, pathway to citizenship for the millions of undocumented immigrants currently living in the US, fixing the current legal immigration bureaucracy, and create programs that attract high-skilled immigrants to settle in the US.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has admitted prosecuting the post election violence cases facing four Kenyans is "difficult".

ICC President Sang-Hyun Song cited the imminent elections and logistics as a cause for worry.

Two of the suspects, Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto, are contesting the elections on a joint presidential ticket in the March 4 vote.

South Korean judge Song said the trials are meant to start in April, but "since there are so many variables here, we don't know what's going to happen."

Kenya will have her first commercial oil production after Tullow Oil Plc announced that tests on Twiga 1 well in Turkana showed it will produce 2,850 barrels of fuel per day.

The election of the first governor of Nairobi is shaping up as a close contest between ODM’s Evans Kidero and TNA’s Ferdinand Waititu, according to a new poll.

Kidero has a slight three-percentage points lead over Waititu, according to the survey by Ipsos Synovate commissioned by The Standard Group.

If elections were held today, Kidero, the former CEO of Mumias Sugar, would secure 40 per cent of the votes and Waititu second with 37 per cent.

He says he is the voice of the hopeless and the destitute. At thirty-nine years old Mohammed Abduba Dida is the youngest presidential candidate and the first ever from North Eastern Kenya.

NTV's Larry Madowo interviewed Dida who says the presidential race is between him and ole Kiyiapi.

The 10 Minute Fix team shot a video this past weekend with regular Americans out in the streets of Las Vegas reading out loud Kenya celebrity tweets, some of them written in Sheng and Swahili.

Many of those who watched the debate said it was very useful with a full 92 per cent saying it helped them understand the candidates better.
