Congratulations William and Kate!

The couple announce a third royal baby.
Shannon Roberts | Sep 5 2017 | comment 

William and Kate, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were "very pleased" to announce today that they are pregnant with their third child.  Kate's due date is expected to be in late April, but she has made the announcement early due to severe morning sickness.   
He or she will be a sibling to the couple's other two children, George (4) and Charlotte (2), and will become the fifth in line to the British throne.
With the announcement, Kate and William are bucking the trend in the United Kingdom, which has a total fertility rate of 1.89 children born per woman.  As in so many other things, will people follow the popular princess in her decision to have a third baby?  One thing people certainly seem to already be following is the couple's choice of names, with Arthur or Alice currently top picks.
Perhaps in the lead up to being a father of three, William might appreciate this latest family advice from the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Bill English.  The father of six uploaded this casual chat about fatherhood with his son on New Zealand's Father's Day this week.  You can view his advice here.  
His advice includes not getting too worried about difficult stages, especially when you're overwhelmed by tiredness, as all things pass.  He also praises the fact that many young father's are now much more involved than they perhaps were in the past, with most no longer strangers to changing nappies.  I'm sure Prince William is no exception.

“Good news from Africa” is the theme of our Harambee blog. This week Mathew Otieno reports from Kenya on what may prove to be a very positive development. The country’s Supreme Court has nullified the results of the presidential election held on August 8. Kenyans will have to return to the polls later this year.

Bear in mind that hundreds of people died in the wake of the last election, in 2007, in which President Uhuru Kenyatta won. It must have taken great courage for the judges to decide that the Kenyan electoral commission had “failed, neglected or refused to conduct the presidential election in a manner consistent with the dictates of the constitution”. They knew that the President and his supporters would be outraged.

Whatever the merits of the judges’ decision, their courage in defying the power of the executive is a victory for an independent judiciary. This is essential for a democratic nation which respects human rights. This really is good news from Africa.
