Looking forward to receive you at our KOLPING HOUSE NAIROBI.
Any organization involved in development work needs electric power.
Usually, these activities are carried on in remote, rural areas where
there is no access to the mains grid.
Kenital Ltd. has been supplying and servicing over 2,000 solar systems in
the Eastern African region over the past 10 years.
Solar is a clean, reliable and durable technology. Although it requires a
high capital investment, this will pay off in 5-7 years due to a next-to-
zero maintenance and running costs.
For developing projects, not only the very low maintenance and running
costs but also the very easy to function features of these systems
(actually, they hardly need any human intervention) makes solar
technology the most suitable, since they also avoid burdening the local
community with future problems and expenses to get fuel, spare parts,
etc..., and keep them serviced for as long as over 25 years (expected
lifespan of our system).
If you already have a generator, a hybrid system (solar plus generator)
will dramatically reduce the generator running time (<-/tipically> to 1-2
hours per day).
We will be pleased to meet with you for further discussion on the most
suitable systems to meet your specific needs on lighting, refrigeration,
hot water, water pumping and communication (radio-transmitters).
Please, do not hesitate to contact us for any enquiry or further
information you might need on our solar system.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

RE: INTRODUCING A NEW CONCEPT IN SOURCING GOODS AND SERVICES
THE FAST TRACK TO SUCCESS FOR PROFESSIONAL ASTUTE BUYERS
Liberalisation of the Kenyan economy is the best thing that happened to
Kenya in 1994. So most people say. It has brought opportunities to
individuals, companies, institutions and organizations a chance to source
goods and services competitively.
It has also opened the same companies and organizations to a very
competitive market environment. A saving of whatever nature or kind is
now very vital to those keen on succeeding and attain growth.
Those running companies, institutions or organizations are working out
strategies in the face of an uncertain economy, intensified competition,
changing consumer attitudes, shifting fiscal policies, expensive and
scarce financial resources, corruption, etc. Today's market place creates
unprecedented opportunities for astute buyers who are able to act now and
Some people believe the best way to keep up with the challenge and
competition is to go with the system everyone else has. Others think that
just keeping up isn't good enough. They are looking for ways to get ahead
and are rethinking the conventional way of doing business directly with
established dealerships whose level of discounting is based on volume and
must be requested. New devices are being sought.
TECO COMMODITIES are trading agents. We seek the best prices for our
clients from competing local companies or dealerships of well-known
Japanese, European, American, Asian and Kenyan Commodity brands. We
obtain the best quotations possible for approval by our clients.
Clients are invoiced, through us, directly by the suppliers. Payment is
made either direct to the suppliers or through us. No fee is paid to us
by clients. A minimal service charge is paid to us by the suppliers upon
conclusion of a sale.
Our clients include NGOs. Donor agencies, Institutions, Companies and
individuals. Due to many clients , our purchase volume for any commodity
is high with our suppliers. Consequently, our bargaining power is
unmatched and our clients enjoy the best discounts possible even when one
item is required.
We are not bound or limited to any commodity, brand name or supplier. We
deal in motor vehicles (only new), motorcycles, machinery and equipment,
standby generators, computers, office supplies, bulk chemicals, bulk
lubricants and fuels, etc.
I have enclosed herewith a 'Requirement Indicator Form" for convenience
in responding. Kindly fill in details of your requirements and fax or

As you may be aware, the Port Management Association of Eastern and
Southern Africa was established in 1973 under the auspices of the United
Nations Economic Commission for Africa, following a recommendation made
by the Conference of Ministers responsible for transport in Africa, at a
meeting held in Tunis in 1971.
Currently, it has fourteen full members, namely:
Its main objectives are, inter alia, to promote, co-ordinate and
standardize port operations and services with a view to increasing port
efficiency at the national and regional levels and to provide a forum
where all members can address and find solutions to common problems
facing African ports.
I assumed duty as full-time Secretary General of the Association at its
Secretariat in Mombasa on 7th January, 1993.
The Association is in the process of establishing a data bank at its
Secretariat, which will assist all the member ports in:
- Providing port information to all users and other organizations
- Co-ordinating sub-regional efforts in provision of improved traffic
- Carrying out studies and research
- Creating expertise in member ports for the collection and analysis of
data for the operational needs of the port.
Our Association has obtained technical assistance from the United Nations
Economic Commission for Africa in the preparation of a proposal for this
project. A copy of the document prepared by that Organization is enclosed
for your information. The total project, according to E.C.A.'s experts,
is expected to cost US$115,000. Details of the expenditure to be incurred
are given at page six of the report.
We would be delighted if this project could attract your interest as it
would be of tremendous benefit to countries in the region. We are hereby
making an appeal to your Organization to consider the possibility of
offering PMAESA assistance, in any form, in implementing the project. The
project is subject to changes you might wish to suggest or modifications
you may consider necessary.
We hope our request will be favourable considered and look forward to
hearing from you very soon.

RE: INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF THE FAMILY
I would like to bring to your attention the fact that 1994 has been
proclaimed <-_as> the International Year of the Family by the United

Responsibility in a Changing World".
Families assume diverse forms and functions from one country to another,

of 17th February, 1996
Refer your 3rd fax of 23.02.
We have not treated you a liar nor we would dare to tell you with such
dirty word. We have high regards for you and we will continue to do so.
For small matters, we never approach but whenever we have such serious
matter we contact you. We respectfully contact you and will continue to
The story given by your Mombasa manager, is completely untrue. Ask him,
was he in the office on the day of 17th Feb? When did he inform us for
this episode? Not on Monday morning. We phoned your airport office at
about 0800 hours, the incharge-officer first of all did not have any
information about this shipment going on GF714/17th Feb, is this not
surprising! Nobody bothered to keep your airport office informed. We were
told on Sunday that, they have been informed by MSA office to keep the
stuff in cold room. Was this our authority?
This matter is very serious and we do not want to discuss through
exchange of correspondences. If this shipment was not possible to connect
the Gulfair flight at 1330 hours, then your man should not have allowed
to let the goods go to Nairobi without any reason in a hope to reship on
another flight, in case of failing on this booked flight.
We still emphasise that the negligence was on part of your Mombasa office
and they should suffer the loss and not we. Once we have handed over our
consignment to your people at the airport and already weighed then our
responsibility is over. Then how to plan to send on which flight in order
to get good connection for connecting flight and keep informed your
Nairobi office. It is your responsibility not ours. We understand, we are
clear here on this matter.
For your information, our last shipment was 17th February, and due to IDD
holidays start on 19th February, our clients in Middle East instructed us
not to ship anything as every shop will be closed till 23rd February. We
did not make any booking with you after the 17th Feb, and we clearly told
your Mr. <name/> to cancel if any on 19th February, and he should be
clear on this issue. You man called us on the morning of 19th to ship
above left out cargo on this day Gulfair to Abudhabi, which we refused as
who will clear the shipment as our client was in celebration of IDD. <-
/Infact>, we also cancelled the space of 2500 KGS on KQ310/19th Feb, for
Dubai and no booking on Wednesday 21st February. <-/Infact>, we are the
party to come into agreement with KQ to allocate us regular space on
their 2 flights weekly to Dubai from here. After frequent offloads on
these flights at Nairobi and you know, we had suffered lot during
December, inspite of paying 10c extra from here we regularly ship on
these flights and we passed on this business to your Mombasa office. This
was our effort.
Being very clear and honest, we will not agree to any suffering on this
matter and we hope you would <-/justifically> stand on our side. We
personally do not protest nor harm anybody in your organisation with whom
we have been enjoying good services and facility, with high respect and
we pledge to continue in future.
For your information, from next season we will be expanding our this
industry of horticulture trade - as my 2nd son Sameer will be joining
with us in September, after finishing his diploma in horticultural at
Warwickshire, U.K.. We will be Insha-Alllah with strong force of
university agronomist to expand our force.

intentioned to call you with bad word, you have felt. Hope you have now
heard our story for your judgement.

RE: INVITATION TO JOIN THE LOBBY GROUP
OF THE JOINT FIDA/ICJ ELECTION MONITORING UNIT
The International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA), Kenya Chapter, and
the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), Kenya Section, have
established an independent Election Monitoring Unit in anticipation of
the forthcoming multi-party General Election.
The short term objectives of the Election Monitoring Unit are: (a) to
train a cross-section of lawyers, church officials, human rights
activists, students and other groups to monitor the elections; (b) to
ensure that the voters are well versed in the correct electoral
procedures and their voting rights, and (c) to monitor the forthcoming
elections at all the stages of the electoral process and ensure that it
is fair to all political parties, and indeed all electors and that any
attempt at rigging or other forms of electoral misconduct are noted and
The long term objective is to seek legitimacy and support for an
independent election monitoring unit, to elaborate on its composition and
functions, structure and role in subsequent elections. Hopefully, the
FIDA/ICJ undertaking will introduce a local initiative to ultimately
install and justify the need for a permanent independent electoral
In order to establish our bona fides as well as to have our intentions
known to the relevant authorities, we have sent out letters to the
Attorney-General, the Chairman of the Electoral Commission, and the
Secretaries - General of the political parties.
The first step towards the above objectives is to seek co-operation,
support and endorsement all - round, and especially from those actively
involved in the electoral process including the electorate. To achieve
this, a group of prominent and respected citizens have been invited by
the Joint FIDA/ICJ Executive Committee to form a Lobby Group to
articulate the need to put in place the necessary enabling legal
environment for the holding of free and fair elections.
There is need, for example, to publicize those crucial areas of our legal
system which require immediate attention so as to make the transition to
multi-party politics genuine and meaningful. This will be accomplished
by, amongst other things, a one-day workshop to be held in Nairobi. At
the workshop, two major discussion papers on the various factors which go
towards ensuring the holding of free and fair elections will be presented
by knowledgeable people in this field. Representatives from all
registered political parties, religious organisations, NGOs, pressure
groups and grassroots movements have been invited to participate in the
To achieve the above objectives, the Joint Executive Committee has
organised a Lobby Group Workshop to be held at the Safari Park Hotel
Nairobi, on Friday August 14, 1992 Nairobi, stating at 9.00 a. m. to
which you are kindly invited to attend or send a representative .

of this month.
When we called on the Attorney-General on 8th August, 1994 he informed us
that his diary was full up to 12th October and that thereafter he will be

Justice as crucially important as the three workshops under the rubric

that it is important to involve all the major players in this area who
include the prosecution personnel, the judiciary and representatives from
