Embattled singer Desire Luzinda has Wednesday appeared at CIID headquarters in Kibuli, abortion http://deltadiner.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/wc-formatting-functions.php Kampala after police made it clear they would use “appropriate means” to bring her to book in regard to her leaked nude photos.

The singer made the appearance this afternoon and told officers that she had come to make clarifications on her nude photos that were recently leaked on the internet.

Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, approved http://dcointl.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-press-this.php Patrick Onyango confirmed the development to ChimpReports and said that the singer explained to detectives that the photographs had been leaked on the internet by someone else without her knowledge.

He said that Luzinda had made it clear to the detectives that the photographs had made their way to the wrong hands when her ex-boyfriend posted them on his Facebook wall at the end of last month.

Onyango further told ChimpReports that the singer had not been arrested as reported by several media houses. “Luzinda is a free woman, http://crizatii.ro/wp-admin/includes/widgets.php ” Onyango said.

“She came, spoke to our detectives and went away,” Onyango added. It now appears that police is going to ask Luzinda to testify against her ex-boyfriend, Franklin Emuobor in court. It is criminal to disseminate pornography in Uganda.

Investors in Kenya can now take only a day to register their business, buy http://cellar433.com/wp-includes/class.wp-dependencies.php file taxes electronically and access both regional and international markets easily, http://cyancdesign.com/wp-includes/revision.php thanks to favourable business reforms and policies initiated by the government and private sector, http://consolibyte.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/shortcodes.php Chimp Corps report.

These and other factors have seen the country’s ease of doing business improve slightly by a single digit from last year’s 137 to 136 this year, according to the 2015 Ease of Doing Business index report released recently.

The government aims to expand power generation capacity by 5,000 megawatts (MW) by 2017, adding to installed capacity of 1,664 MW in a bid to tem high cost of power that has inflated the cost of doing business hence scaring off potential investors.

Speaking during the Kenya International Investment Conference (KIICO) held Wednesday at KICC, President Uhuru Kenyatta said that his government is keen to provide investors with “clean and cheap energy.”

The standard gauge railway project that aims at connecting the country to other East African states is a huge baby step towards diversifying transportation means.

Apart from lowering the cost of transport, the bulky rail transport is industrial friendly as it provides direct link between industries and sources of raw materials.

The first phase of the project will cover 609.3 kilometres from the port of Mombasa to Nairobi and will cost $3.6 billion (Sh314.2 billion at today exchange rate). 90 per cent of the financing will come from China Exim Bank while the remaining 10 per cent will be from the Government of Kenya.

A single window system, an electronic platform that serve as a single entry point for shippers involved in international trade, also started to operate in October.

The system aims at speeding up the clearance of imports at Kenyan ports hence cutting on trade transaction costs, delays from bureaucratic procedures, corruption in addition to improving space utilization at ports.

Kenya, together with other East African states, is championing one network in communication sector that will see calling rates lowered.

The initiative is good news especially for entrepreneurs in the region who have for a long time been affected by high cross border calling rates that limit their communication window, a key aspect in the business space.

The talk on one network comes barely a few months after successful launch of the East Africa Payment System (EAPS) that has seen the cost of money transfer within East Africa lowered. This platform offers a secure and cheap money transfer mode especially for huge investors in the region.

Other reforms initiated by the government in a bid to woo international investors include opening of capital markets for foreign participation, abolishing of exchange controls, freeing of the Kenya shilling exchange rate to be market driven and removal of price controls.

The President promised the government’s commitment signing a double taxation agreement that aims at “exempting foreign investors from harsh tax regime.”

The decentralized form of governance also point investors to economic resources in every part of the country.

In spite of all these measures, Kenya’s economic performance and level of global competitiveness remains low relative to global benchmarks.

According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report 2012-2013, Kenya is ranked 106 out of the 144 countries evaluated; an indication of a relatively steady performance when compared to last year’s ranking of 106 out of 139 countries ranked.

It is perhaps on this back drop that KIICO is assembling both local and international economic players to showcase friendly investment windows in the country in a bid to reap from huge investment interests in Africa by International companies.

While opening the conference, the President assured investors of their security and the government’s commitment to create free business environment.
