Govt allows for importation of duty-free dates ahead of Ramadhan

In preparation for the upcoming Holy Month of Ramadhan, the government through the Cabinet Secretary for Treasury Njuguna Ndung’u has once again allowed duty-free importation of dates.

This move aims to ensure that there is a sufficient supply of dates, which are an essential food item during the month-long observance.

In a letter seen by NTV, Ndung’u says “The government has authorised that the dates imported and cleared between 13 March and 30 April 2023 be done without the payment of taxes, Import Declaration Fee and Railway Development Levy.”

21 migrants die in boat sinking off Madagascar: authorities

At least 21 migrants died when their boat sank off the coast of Madagascar over the weekend, the island nation’s maritime authorities said on Monday, revising downwards its earlier toll.

“To date, 21 people have died, two are missing and 24 have survived. We assume that there were 47 people on board, according to information from fishermen who were the first to try rescue the shipwrecked,” director general of the Madagascar Maritime Authority (APMF) Jean Edmond Randrianantenaina told AFP.

The APMF had in an earlier statement listed 22 dead of those who had “clandestinely taken a boat headed to (the French territory of) Mayotte, but that sank”.

Madrid relying on injury-hit Benzema for more European glory

Karim Benzema has formed an essential part of Real Madrid’s Champions League success, but there are doubts over whether his team can rely on him to extend their European domination this season.

The French striker’s season has been regularly disrupted by injuries, and although Vinicius Junior is a deadly threat on the left, without Benzema, defences can focus on shutting down the Brazilian winger.

His future at Madrid is also unknown — his contract expires in June and no public decision has been made over a renewal by player or club.

“Legends of this club have to stay at Madrid,” said Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti, hoping the forward remains at his disposal next year.
