    Saturday, December 15, 2018 - Kenyans should avoid consuming imported fish from China if this laboratory analysis of samples of Chinese fish is anything to go by.

    According to the Residue and Drug Analysis results of Chinese fish import samples taken to a local University’s laboratory confirmed residues of lead(0.04ppm) Mercury(o.oo5ppm) Arsenic (>0.001) and copper (1.2ppm)

    The presence of heavy metals in these imported fish indicates that the ponds where they are bred are contaminated

    The unregulated import of fish from China has seen local fishermen incur heavy losses and despite President Uhuru giving orders to relevant Government agencies to use all means including underhand tactics to keep away imported Chinese fish from the Kenyan market, it is business as usual.


    Speaking recently during the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Presidential Roundtable at Strathmore University, the President said:


    “Jameni, tunatoa samaki kutoka China… hata kama Finance Bill imepita, think out of the box, tunaweza kusema hiyo samaki ambayo imefika ni mbaya na unaifungia. Kuna njia nyingi serekali inaweza kufanya kazi. Ndio tuhakikishe watu yetu wamefaidika jameni,”

    Saturday, December 15, 2018 - Controversial gospel singer, Alex Apoko popularly known as Ringtone, is desperately searching for a wife.

    The veteran entertainer took to social media to reveal that despite his deep pockets, he still cries himself to sleep alone in his lavish mansion in Karen.

    Apparently, all the God fearing girls he has approached have turned him down and since he is not getting any younger, he has urged his fans to pray for him.

    “Mimi ni Mpweke sana. Am so lonely. Miaka yangu ya kuoa imefika but sijui ntaoa nani.. I cry alone daily in my 1m dollars mansion. I ask God why all the beautiful God loving girls don’t want me.

    “Please pray for me.”

    A few months ago, the ‘Tenda Wema’ hit-maker left tongues wagging with his public pursuit of Uganda socialite and Diamond Platinumz ex-lover, Zari Hassan.

    Ringtone stormed a local radio station where Zari was being interviewed with a Range Rover Sport valued at Sh7 million which he wanted to gift her.

    However, the mother of five turned down the offer and advised him to donate the car to someone else because she had bought herself a similar ride.

    Sunday December 16, 2018-Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed has postponed the roll out for the new curriculum to 2020.

    Speaking yesterday, the CS revealed that her ministry had extended its pilot by one more year to get it right.


    She explained that the ministry had resorted to the move to allow for the alignment in Education Sector.


    “The new curriculum pilot will continue for another year, postponing the roll out for one more year to allow for alignment in the education sector and kick off in January 2020,” stated Amina.


    This comes hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta summoned the CS over confusion regarding the roll out of the curriculum.


    The President put Amina on notice over the confusion created by the botched roll out of the new 2-6-3-3 curriculum, warning her to either implement the new curriculum or ship out.

    Sunday December 16, 2018-The Kamba community has appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta to pick carefully his successor when he retires in 2022.

    Speaking on Friday, Mwingi Central MP, Gideon Mulyungi, asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to pick Wiper Party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, as his 2022 successor and not Raila Odinga because he is a perennial nor Deputy President William Ruto because he is an irredeemable thief.


    Mulyungi said Kalonzo has been patient and that President Kenyatta should stand with him in 2022, noting that the Wiper leader has a clean record and the much-needed experience to take up the country’s top leadership.



    “President Kenyatta should stand with Kalonzo and endorse his presidential candidature in 2022,” the Wiper MP told journalists in Mwingi Town on Friday.



    He further said Kalonzo is the only trusted politician among the candidates who have declared their interests in vying for the Presidency in 2022, vowing to rally Kambas behind him when the time comes.

    Sunday December 16, 2018-Opposition Leader, Raila Odinga, has dismissed Deputy President William Samoei 'kati kati' (in the middle) remarks he made during President Uhuru Kenyatta's tour to Nyanza region.

    Speaking yesterday, Raila said it foolish for the Deputy President, who is a partner in the Government, to trivialise and politicise historic handshake between him and Uhuru for political expediency.


    "It's foolishness for one to say that he stands between me and President Kenyatta in the handshake.”


    “We want people to get politics out of the handshake," said Raila.


    The NASA leader warned Ruto and political leaders to desist from meddling with the unity pact between him and Uhuru as it had nothing to do with 2022 succession politics but healing forgotten wounds.


    During Uhuru’s tour of Nyanza, Ruto clarified there is no bad blood between him and Raila and went on to urge locals to support him when the time comes, saying he is in between.


    "When you see Uhuru on one side and Raila on the other, just know I am in between them.”


    “Will we walk together in future?" he posed.

    Sunday December 16, 2018-Deputy President William Ruto will never become President of Kenya; at least not in 2022.

    This was revealed by his close friend-Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, who seemingly cast doubts on Ruto’s chances of succeeding President Kenyatta in 2022 despite being the second in command, his deep pockets, extensive network, and popularity in his Rift Valley backyard.


    Addressing a recent Western Kenya leaders forum, the Cabinet Secretary pointed out that the country’s history shows that it is difficult for the deputy president to succeed his boss.


    “Kalonzo Musyoka surprised me the other day.”


    “He said ‘If I’m the tenth Vice President Kenya has had and there have been ten Vice-Presidents, and out of the 10, only one succeeded in succeeding the President,” Wamalwa said.


    “I don’t know if you know who that guy (who succeeded in succeeding the President) is? Daniel Toroitich arap Moi.”


    “But it was due to death, you know that.”


    “Maybe if there was an election, it might not have worked (for Moi to succeed Mzee Jomo Kenyatta),” he added.

    Sunday December 16, 2018-President Uhuru Kenyatta has revealed that he is ready and willing to support former Prime Minister Raila Odinga Presidential bid in 2022.

    Speaking in a closed-door meeting at Kisumu State Lodge at night, where some Governors and MPs were locked out, Uhuru said that he 'doesn't have any problem with Raila Odinga succeeding him in 2022.


    The debate was sparked by Siaya Senator James Orengo who implored the President to consider supporting Raila’s 2022 Presidential bid to help preserve the famous handshake.


    "We would be happy if your Excellency considers offering your support for Mr Odinga to continue with your March 9 peace deal of uniting the country and enhancing good governance," Mr. Orengo reportedly told the President.


    In response, Uhuru said he will support anyone who is fit to run the country, but was cautious, saying only God knows.


    "Ndugu zangu na dada zangu mimi sina shida na mtu yeyote bora tu mkubali tufanye kazi pamoja basi tugange yajayo (My brothers and sisters, I have no issues will your suggestion but let work together and see what the future has)," the President said.

    Sunday, December 16, 2018- President Uhuru has finally settled a 40 bob debt he owned a city hawker.


    Dennis Murimi Wachira, 22, had offered Uhuru two packs of chewing gum worth Sh40 bob during a political rally late last year.


    However, he has spent over 12 months demanding his dues and on Friday, Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho invited him to his Harambee House office and settled the debt on behalf of the president.


    This comes after the hawker had blasted the President claiming that he doesn’t want anything from him apart from the 40 shillings he owes him.


    “I don’t need a job from the president. There a no jobs in Kenya for the youth. I’m only demanding my Sh40 which the president owes me,” he said in that interview.


    However, during the brief meeting with Mr. Kibicho, Murimi told him that he is looking for a decent job that would enable him provide for his family.


    “I’ve wanted to meet the president since that first encounter so that I can tell him my problems. We are four in our family and I’m the soul bread winner. I need a good job to cater for my family’s needs,” he told Kibicho.
