Unregulated will writers failing clients, says Chancery Lane

first_imgUnregulated will writers are providing the public with unenforceable wills while charging for legal services they are not trained or regulated to provide, the Law Society claimed this week. Solicitors specialising in will writing told the Society they have been handed invalid wills drafted by unregulated will writers, who on some occasions also offered powers of attorney, probate, conveyancing and tax advice. In some instances, family members were being left out of wills against the wishes of the client. Solicitors also reported that will writers are hiding charges, and that will documents have disappeared after will-writing companies were wound up. Law Society president Robert Heslett said this was a ‘widespread trend.’ See also Law Society warning on unregulated will writerslast_img read more

Rwanda, South Africa, Nigeria and Algeria supported IGAD’s position on adding the regional army troop to enforce peace the East African nation.“There is the idea of promoting deployment of an African force within the UN. All the questions have been accepted by the summit itself.  So you will find them in the decision which will be made public,” said AU Commissioner for Peace and Security Smail Chergui, confirming the AU support for the reinforcementThe Commissioner further added that the AU is looking to sending an African force with a ‘robust peace enforcement’ mandate to Africa’s youngest nation, similar to the African intervention brigade in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

Kenyan schools set to reopen with protective COVID-19 measures

first_imgRwanda tightens COVID-19 measures as cases surge A health worker dressed in personal protective equipment (PPE) takes a nasopharyngeal swab sample from a resident during a Covid-19 testing drive at Olympic Primary School in Nairobi, Kenya, on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. Halfway through Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyattas second term his pledge of transforming the economy through manufacturing, farming, health care and low-cost housing have been slow to show results, and the coronavirus pandemic could now reduce that to little more than an election promise. Photographer: Patrick Meinhardt/Bloomberg via Getty Images A health worker dressed in personal protective equipment (PPE) takes a nasopharyngeal swab sample from a resident during a Covid-19 testing drive at Olympic Primary School in Nairobi, Kenya, on Tuesday, May 26, 2020.  Patrick Meinhardt/Bloomberg via Getty ImagesKenyan learners, teachers and school workers will be required to wear face masks at all times, maintain physical distance and check for COVID-19 symptoms daily once learning resumes before the end of the year.The measures are contained in safety protocols formulated by the ministry of education to guide the physical reopening of schools that were shut on March 15 following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.The guidelines outline measures that will enhance safety of students, prevent, early detect and control COVID-19 in educational institutions.“These guidelines apply to pre-primary schools, primary, secondary, adult and continuing education centers and teacher training colleges,” says the ministry of education.Under the new protocols, students and teachers will always maintain physical distance to curb spread of the disease.“In education settings, social distancing of at least a meter will be required to be maintained in the commonly shared areas like classrooms and halls of residence. They shall be adapted to ensure there is no congestion and where possible, boarding will be optional,” the ministry said.Schools shall limit the entrance of outsiders, including parents. “Learners who are below nine years will be picked at the institutions’ gate at the start of the day and escorted to the exit at pick up times to limit public entering the institutions,” it said.When it comes to games, fields shall be appropriately marked to ensure learners play different games that avoid touching or holding.“Swimming will be halted in all educational institutions until the COVID-19 risk is at the lowest level as shall be guided by the Ministry of Health,” says the ministry.Further, food handlers and cleaners will be required to have personal protective equipment to promote basic health and hygiene.The food handlers would also need to have food handling certificates and would be screened for COVID-19 symptoms.“All food handlers shall undergo a symptomatic screening for COVID-19 on a daily basis. Those with symptoms like fever, cough, shortness of breath, breathing difficulties and fatigue should be allowed to seek medical attention,” the ministry said.Schools will also ensure they have a qualified nurse in-charge or have arrangements with local health centers to manage learners in case of health risks.All schools will also be required to have graphic posters of COVID-19 preventive measures in classrooms for learners and staff to see and be reminded of what they should do.“Children shall not share materials like markers, scissors, crayons, and pencils and will be released to go home immediately after completing the day’s lessons. There shall be no sleeping and provision of mattresses at school,” noted the ministry.In the new school environment, all learners and staff shall wear age-appropriate face masks at all times.Schools will be required to provide adequate water points at strategic locations for handwashing and they should include pedal-operated taps and devices or water dispensers with sensors to minimize hand contact and reduce the risk of infection.Education principal secretary Belio Kipsang said the government developed the guidelines as part of its response and recovery plan for the sector.“These are also aimed at facilitating production of online teaching and learning materials and to expand existing remote learning programs, to ensure access to learning opportunities provided,” he says.Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha said on Monday that schools will be reopened before the end of the year, citing a decline in COVID-19 infections in the East African nation.Related Kenyan government spokesperson tests positive for COVID-19center_img China donates COVID-19 protective essentials to Tanzanian schoolslast_img read more

Cavs Reportedly Withdraw Contract Offer to Tristan Thompson

first_img Related TopicsAnderson VarejaoCavsTristan Thompson Matt Medley According to NBA salary cap expert Larry Coon, the Cavs have taken their offer to Tristan Thompson off the table.Thompson initially declined a five-year $80 million deal, and the date to sign a one-year qualifying offer has passed.If any team offers a long-term deal to Thompson for up to four years, the Cavs can match the offer.There appears to be little interest and few teams even have the cap space to add Thompson at the salary he reportedly is willing to accept.The regular season opener is less than two weeks away and the Cavs have until October 26 to decide on a 12-man active roster to start the season.There is a possibility the Cleveland could face a similar scenario to what the Seattle Seahawks went through with Kam Chancellor and his holdout.If the Cavs start the season without Thompson and struggle early, maybe the front office will be willing to concede more to Thompson and his agent Rich Paul’s asking price.Paul also represents LeBron James and has been a close friend of LeBron’s since high school. LeBron has already come out and said the Thompson contract situation is a distraction to the team and called on both sides to get something done.If nothing happens it appears the Cavs will enter the season with Anderson Varejao as the backup power forward.Ironically, the last time the Cavs had a holdout situation like this was with Varejao in 2007, when the team known as the Charlotte Bobcats made an offer to Varejao and the Cavs matched it for less than what he was seeking initially.Varejao was looking for about $10 million per season, and ended up signing a three-year deal for $17 million.Depending on how the beginning of the season plays out, this could be a big payoff for one side or the other. If the Cavs show they can play well without Thompson, his value goes down, but the more they struggle, the more valuable Thompson becomes.center_img Matt Medley is co-editor at NEO Sports Insiders, covers the Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland Indians and high school sports in Northeast Ohio.Follow @MedleyHoops on Twitter for live updates from games.last_img read more
