The Vice Chair of the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission has stepped down from her position, after calling for the Chairman, Bethuel Kiplagat to resign. She will continue as a Commission member.

The Indian Ocean Newsletter reports that Kenya’s Blue Shield Insurance Company, owned by the Kenyatta family, is subject to a demand by the Association on Insurance Brokers of Kenya to the Insurance Regulatory Authority (IRA) to appoint a liquidator due to its failure to pay claims. “The IRA position is clearly very delicate in this affair, since this body depends on the ministry of finance, headed by [Uhuru] Kenyatta, who is the half brother of the late Muigai Kenyatta whose widow Beth Muigai chairs the board of Blue Shield Insurance.”
