And yet, despite the floundering first year and a half of Trump’s presidency, the opposition has yet to find its voice. One might think that Trump’s inflammatory tweets, erratic behaviour, and persistent disregard for democratic norms would offer the opposition an easy target. But it has not worked out this way.

Promotional feature brought to you by SWNS Media Group An app is revolutionising the lives of vulnerable people in Kenya by helping them manage the burden of unexpected medical costs. Single mums and elderly people are signing up to the mobile health wallet service M-TIBA, which allows individuals to send, save and spend funds for their medical treatments. Prior to its development, the severe lack of access to financial planning tools and saving services had been problematic for residents who would often pay in cash or lose money to unethical partners. A shocking 40 per cent of Kenyans cannot afford to seek treatment from hospitals, with mothers and their young children often having to choose between food or health.
