    Saturday December 15, 2018-President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga help a late night meeting with elected leaders in Luo Nyanza on Friday.

    However, they kicked out two Governors, an MP and Members of the County Assembly from a meeting.


    Among the leaders who were locked out of Raila-Uhuru meeting include Kisii Governor, James Ongwae, his Nyamira counterpart, John Nyangarama and Kitutu Chache North MP, Jimmy Angwenyi, who had earlier joined Luo Nyanza Governors, Senators and MPs at the meeting.


    Members of the Kisumu County Assembly who were at the State Lodge ready to meet Uhuru were also requested to leave.


    You are kindly requested to excuse yourselves as the President wishes to meet elected leaders from Luo Nyanza, excluding the MCAs,” Orengo announced.


    Sources reveal that Deputy President William Ruto, who had spent the whole day with Uhuru on his Nyanza tour, and Migori Governor, Okoth Obado, were also missing the historic meeting.

    Saturday December 15, 2018-President Uhuru Kenyatta has been forced to cancels payment of dowry which was set to place this December until February next year.

    This is after it emerged that his mother, Mama Ngina Kenyatta, would not be available during the time which the President had set to pay dowry.


    Uhuru had planned to pay for his great Grandmother dowry.


    Uhuru’s family believes paying bride price is mandatory regardless of the time it takes to settle the debt.


    Speaking yesterday, Uhuru’s cousin Captain (Rtd) Kungu Muigai said that they felt bad that the dowry had been delayed for many years but they were definitely going to honour it.


    The genesis of the grand occasion was that Agikuyu warriors raided a Maasai village known as Naroosura many years ago, stole a herd of cattle and a girl who was later married to Magana and baptised Wanjiru.


    She gave birth to Kung’u Magana who was the father of former President Jomo KenyattaJames Muigai and Kung’u Muigai.


    Because President Uhuru was named after his great-grandfather, Muigai, the onus is on him to pay his bride prize,” Uhuru’s cousin stated.

    Saturday December 15, 2018-An ODM Governor from Coast and his brother are among the powerful Kenyans on United State’s Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) list of wanted persons over links to Akasha brothers’ drugs empire.


    The list of shame also includes two Governors from Jubilee party, a cabinet secretary, an MP, two judges, a former governor and current and former top police bosses.


    A source revealed that the County head from the Coastal city and his brother had been extensively mentioned by the two Akashas, Ibrahim Akasha Abdalla and Baktash Akasha Abdalla.


    “They are wanted by FBI over their links with the Akashas.


    “The two Akasha brothers have extensively named them in their statements,” the source said.


    Director of Public Prosecutions, Noordin Haji, stated that he had received numerous requests in connection with the highly placed people that were named by the Akashas and was in the process of facilitating their extradition to the US.


    We have had interactions with them, there have been questions and there are areas where we need to cooperate.”


    “Once we agree on how to proceed, then formal extradition requests will be made by the US,” stated the DPP.

    Saturday December 15, 2018-President Uhuru Kenyatta has Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed on the sidelines of his working tour of Kisumu County following the botched new curriculum.

    According to sources who attended the meeting in Kisumu State Lodge, the visibly furious Uhuru put Amina on notice over the confusion created by the botched roll out of the new 2-6-6-3 curriculum.


    The meeting with Uhuru is reported to have triggered a crisis meeting at the headquarters in Jogoo House, with education officials doing everything they can salvage the situation in order to protect their careers and jobs as the President promised he would sack them all if they do not implement the new curriculum.


    The CS had put a stop to the implementation of the new curriculum, ordering schools to go back to the old 8-4-4 system.


    “The worst thing that can happen is for us to roll out something that we are not all comfortable with.”


    “A little discomfort is acceptable but huge discomfort is unacceptable,” she stated.

    Saturday, December 15, 2018 - Sometimes backa little known NGO allegedly offered to ferry beautiful women from Ukambani to offer them to unmarried men in Busia.

    Over 100 men thronged Nambale in Busia County on the day to receive "free" women and a pack of goodies.


    Besides a free sexy Kamba woman, the NGO had promised the young men a sack of maize, Sh10,000 in cash, sufurias and a cooking stick.


    The men arrived as early as 7am and were unmoved even as the day progressed with hopes that their dreams would bear fruits.


    However, they eventually lost hope by 5:30 pm and left dejected and their hopes of staring a new life with a ‘free’ wife dashed.

    By Biko Zulu


    Milton Uhuru Isanya
    55


    I’m having a meeting at the Java JKIA. I see this guy, obviously just landed from a long haul. He looks like one of the Wailers. There are people whose faces look like a vault of stories; things they have seen, felt, kissed, smelled. Like you’d open their faces and a rich tapestry of stories come tumbling out. Faces that look like an abstract painting.


    I tell the lady I’m meeting, “what do you think that guy does for a living?” She says, “an artist. Like a musician.” I say, “maybe sound engineer. Or painter.” He also looks like the kind of guy who has a big dog called Kenya. Definitely not a cat guy. Cat guys dont keep big beards.


    Burning with curiosity I walk to him and say, “excuse me, I’m sorry, hi, my name is Biko.” He looms up from his phone, like a lion would from a kill. “That lady and I have a wager.” I tell him. “She thinks you are a musician. I think you paint, or do stage design.” He laughs and says, “well, I work with an airline in America called Southwest Airline. I’m an instructor.” His accent is deep. He sounds like Ossie Davis.


    He is called Uhuru because he was born the day Kenya gained independence. To mean he’s as old as Kenya. He’s from Western Kenya. Went to the US in 1985 to play football. Broke his left leg, and as he recovered his hair grew and grew and he let it and when his leg healed he decided he was going to have dreadlocks. Then he broke the other leg. Then football dream died.


    He’s listening to Wailing Souls, in those headphones. “When Bob Marley came to Kenya in 1980 I went to watch him and meeting Bob was big, it was like - “ his phone rings. The person picking him says he’s at the parking. We look across the parking; idling on the tarmac is a white Range Rover that matches his beard. “Look take my number, let’s meet up.” He says. “I’m open next week.”


    Definitely a dog guy, I thought to myself.

    Saturday, December 15, 2018 - The deadly HIV virus has wiped out so many people across the world and despite the shocking statistics that show the high rate of new infections, young people, especially those aged 19-25, are still engaging in reckless sexual behaviours.

    A 33 year old mother of two, who supports kids born positive, has narrated the burden of living with the deadly virus.

    She has lived with the virus for 10 years, swallowing ARV pills everyday and she can confirm that HIV is no joke.

    The woman shared photos of the ARV pills that she has been taking daily for a decade together with the HIV positive kids saying,


    My babies and I displaying our burden of living with HIV. Kourtney 9years 11 tablets, Trevor 17 years 20 tablets, Dauglas 22 years 3 tablets, Barbara 32 years 3 tablets daily.

    If you still have a chance and choice to stay safe, please do because it isn't fun swallowing these pills everyday especially for the kids born with the virus.”

    Saturday, December 15, 2018 - A pregnant slay queen was left with an egg on her face after she was disowned by her baby daddy in public.

    The young lady tagged her baby daddy by the name Robert Wanyama on a photo of her baby bump and announced to the world he is the man behind her pregnancy but things went south so fast.

    Wanyama threw jabs at the young lady and told her not to broadcast him on social media.

    He broke the lady’s heart further by telling her there’s no way he is going to take care of the pregnancy.

    She should prepare to start a new journey as a single mother because Wanyama is not taking care of the baby when she delivers.

    Check out  screenshots of the conversation.

    Saturday, December 15, 2018 - A disturbing and shocking video of what goes on in dingy Busaa dens in the sprawling Kawangware slums has emerged.

    Young ladies flock the busaa dens which operate day and night to sell their flesh to men and at times, they get rowdy and start causing chaos, probably fighting over sex clients after the illicit liquor takes control of their bodies and minds.

    According to Fredrick Mirikau, who shared the video, the busaa dens operate as law enforcers watch.

    The owners of the dens bribe police so that they can continue with the illegal business that has messed up the lives of so many young people in Kawangware and reduced them to zombies.

    Kawangware busaa dens messing up young Kenyans lives. Very sympathetic situations. This happened at a famous busaa den (Madiaba) in Kawangware 56 between 1pm and 4pm. Local authorities do  nothing to control this. Police always collect bribes in these busaa/chang'aa dens. It happens all over. Sad.”Fredrick said.


    He claims that Busaa and Chang’aa dens are all over Kawangware and they have become a cash cow for police who move around collecting bribes.

    Watch these shocking and disturbing videos taken inside the busaa dens below.
