    Williamson Tea – Does anybody foresee significant price changes at the exchange with this impending acquisition?
    Dyer & Blair – Good to see them expand into Uganda and Rwanda, hopefully they are not spreading unethical practices there
    KQ – Stumbled on some article bad on them. I concur with the sentiments especially about the hostile environment at the Airport
    DSTV – Pure monopoly – I wonder if they could make any money in Kenya without the controversial deal on English Premier League. Inclusion of NTV among their channels quite welcome. Hoping Oxygen TV gives them adequate compe – bring then down to earth

    Banks – you are quite a resource

    Am used to some not so good websites from back home but i agree with Mitzy that is simply a great property website for anyone looking for real estate in Kenya. And they seem to have all the big realtors that i know, Villacare (great for housing developments), HassConsult, Regent Management, Lloyd Masika (mostly commercial)and over 30 others when i counted last. KCB Simba Villas that bankelele mentioned are showcased in spectacular fashion (over 20 photos of the houses) on the site. I have made an enquiry to the agents and wait to get more details. For kenyan property, i think is the way to go.

    Talking of property websites, I saw a new one — It’s free to place an ad. I think it is for people who are selling property themselves without an agent. It’s a good idea I think. they have a place where you can place a property wanted ad.
