Lupita’s new movie turning heads, eyes

In spite of the fact that the next big movie starring Kenya’s celebrated Hollywood actress Lupita Nyongo is still seven months away from its December 17 premiere, a Star Wars 7-The Force Awakens teaser is already causing ripples in the movie industry.

Just a week after release, the teaser for the movie is breaking records, showing great promise for what has been hailed by Hollywood pundits as the most anticipated movie of 2015.

Although it lasts just 1 minute 47 seconds, everything else about the teaser put on video sharing site YouTube late last week is huge.

It is nearly breaking the internet, has shattered the stock price of its production company in the process at the New York Stock Exchange and to put the icing on the cake, Japanese Airline All Nippon Airways has launched a Star Wars-themed Boeing 787 Dream Liner in a five year deal with Walt Disney.

According to the official Star Wars website the trailer was viewed 88 million times on its first day, wrecking the 62 million record previously held by Fast and Furious 7, Vengeance Hits Home, which was released last month.

President’s advisers blocking efforts to raise workers' pay, says Atwoli

President’s advisers blocking efforts to raise workers' pay, says Atwoli

Central Organization of Trade Unions (Cotu) boss Francis Atwoli has asked the President to raise workers’ wages by 20 per cent.

Mr Atwoli invited the President to Cotu’s Jubilee celebrations next Friday and urged him to use the opportunity to give workers “a 20 per cent pay increase.”

“We expect the head of State on May 1st, we have invited him,” said Mr Atwoli.

At the same time, Mr Atwoli blamed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s advisors for the delay in increasing workers’ salaries.

Speaking Saturday in Nairobi when he met representatives of workers from the grassroots, Mr Atwoli regretted that the government was yet to increase the minimum wage for workers as promised by the President.

Two months after he was elected into office, the President promised workers a 14 per cent increase in minimum wage that would have seen the least paid worker take home Sh13,674 every month.

The Cotu boss said that the trade union has been unable to negotiate with the government on ways of realising the rights of workers, and blamed this on his row with suspended Labour Cabinet Secretary Kazungu Kambi.

Mr Atwoli said that his union has not achieved much since the appointment of Mr Kambi as Labour CS, whom he claimed used his post to advance selfish interests.
