    Friday, December 21, 2018 - In form Wolverhampton Wanderers host unbeaten league leaders Liverpool in a Premier League match tonight.

    Wolves are currently 7th in the Premier League tablewhereas Liverpool could temporarily move four points clear at the top with a victory. Go here>>>>

    This will be the first league meeting between these two sides since January 2012, when Liverpool ran out 3-0 winners at Molineux courtesy of goals from Andy Carroll, Craig Bellamy and Dirk Kuyt.

    Wolves have only ever won one of their eight previous Premier League meetings - a 1-0 triumph at Anfield in December 2010 - while Liverpool are unbeaten in each of their last five visits to Molineux and have kept a clean sheet in each of the last three. Go here>>>>

    Prediction: Wolves 1-2 Liverpool.

    Both teams are in fine form heading into this match and Wolves usually up their game for the big contests, but Klopp’s charges look so strong at the moment that it is hard to back any team against them.

    Friday December 21, 2018- The fate of Deputy President William Ruto's Weston Hotel still hangs in the balance after members of the National Land Commission (NLC) failed to agree to revoke the title deed of the controversial piece of land as recommended in preliminary investigations.


    During the stormy five-hour meeting that was chaired by the commissions' Vice Chairperson, Abigail Mbagaya, the commissioners resolved to postpone the verdict to February 2019 when eight of them are scheduled to leave office.


    According to sources, one group had opted to have the title deed revoked and another was pushing for compensation of the land at the current market rate.


    "The determination will be made in February, as there are issues that have not been agreed upon by the commissioner some want the title revoked, while others want the owner to be ordered to compensate Government at a market rate (of about Sh200 million)," said the source.


    This comes even as the preliminary investigations show that the land belonged to Kenya Civil Aviation Authority and NLC recommended to have the title revoked.


    However, all members could not agree thus sparking a debate on whether or not Ruto has bribed some of the commissioners to reject the earlier report.

    Chak achaka nyathina*

    (Just begin my son)

    _*By: Dr Okinyi Nyawade*_

    Just after I received my fee structure from Moi University for my PhD totalling 850,000 in 2012 I met my dad, Charles at cooperative bank in Homa Bay. I explained to him that I had the admission letter and he smiled. I told him however, _"Baba there is a problem, they need 850,000"_ He held my hands then slowly but reassuringly said, _"nyathina chak achaka_"(just begin my son)

    To ensure his point went home he got into his account and gave me 14000 in an account that had 20,000. I was touched. I added 16000. I paid 30,000 to the account and my journey to PhD began.

    Today having reached the dream I remembered the words of my father. In everything you do always remember *chak achaka(just begin).* Just begin no matter how difficult it seems to be. It appeared to be difficult but as time lapsed I realised dad was right. At some point after my defence I gave up. I still had a solid 300,000 to pay, they won't give me chance for final defence. Then came a very unlikely help. I had supported a gentleman to undertake a project evaluation two times in the year. I received his call cautiously asking me to meet him. He was carrying a brown envelop in his hand. He began:

    _"Benson you will forgive me if you find my action inappropriate. For two consecutive times you have given me a job without asking a cent. This is very unusual with many people. I did not know how to approach you but am deep with gratitude. Please accept my small gift."_
    I quickly peered into the envelope and saw they were two bundles likely in hundreds. He confirmed that it was 200,000. I told him, _"I have helped so many people, many known to me, some were my school mates who never returned a cent. God bless you. Please don't give it to me. Pay it straight to the university account."_

    I couldn't believe it. The words of my father Nyathina chak achaka(my son just begin) rung on my head with familiarity. Don't worry how it will end, chak achaka(just begin). If you are building a house, chak achaka(just begin). If you are planning to buy land, chak achaka(just begin). If you want continue your education, chak achaka(just begin).If you want pay dowry, chak achaka(just begin). Nothing is powerful as this word my people. We just need to begin.
    I have revised this philosophy. Whenever someone is doing something I always encourage them, tem atema(just try).When things get thick I always say, wuoth awuotha(keep walking). When things are intimidating,cha achaya(ignore). Let's keep trying family. Don't give up in life just because it looks insurmountable. Do not be defeated before you begin. Whatever looks like a mountain soon becomes an anthill only if you begin.

    Not long ago someone asked me, "Bennie to koro dorm midwaro ni wager Mbita ni wabonyale?Are we going to manage to build the dorm we want in Mbita?" My answer, "wachak achaka(let's just begin)" I believe in the power of starting. No one loses a race until they respond to the start gun and begin. The secret lies in beginning. Overtime God has seen me through a number of projects because of this philosophy. I have land parcels that I acquired by simply paying 5,000. Overtime these have become thousands. Many a time I can't even tell how I managed the big sum that is their value.

    I persuade you this day never to allow yourself to be threatened by the size of your problems. Begin in a small way doing something about it. If it is lack of money do a small thing to get something for yourself. If it is marital issues look for a small way to solve it. In whatever you face, chak achaka(just begin). Even those with big debts can do something about it, chak achaka(just begin) and it will shrink each day.

    I am not a millionaire but one time I wanted to have a feeling of being one. I drew a plan of how to hold a million in my account at least for few days. After few months of chako(beginning) I discovered it was possible. A year and half later of savings I got my first ever million. Even though I scattered it later into investment and expenses, it felt so good. Wachakuru achaka(Let's all begin) family.Let's ignore naysayers and doom predictors that believe we can't do it"LET'S JUST BEGIN"

    YES WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR GENERATION AND THOSE TO COME!!!!

    Friday, December 21, 2018 - Meru Senator, Mithika Linturi, and his estranged wife, Mary Keitany, a former powerful chief of staff at the office of the Deputy President William Ruto, are headed for a nasty divorce.

    Linturi and Mary settled down as husband and wife  in 2006 under Meru and Nandi customary marriage at Kapcemosin in Nandi County but 12 years later, their marriage has gone to the dogs.

    Linturi’s estranged wife has filed for divorce claiming that their marriage has broken down and there is nothing she can do to salvage it.

    In the divorce papers filed at Chief Magistrates Court in Meru, Mary describes Linturi as a randy man who has multiple sexual partners.

    She further reveals that her cheating husband has been in constant communication with other women and she has caught him many times exchanging nudes and pornographic images with them, causing her immense mental anguish.

    Mary also reveals in the divorce papers that Linturi has on several occasions infected her with STDs.

    I had on several occasions been exposed to venereal diseases and STDs of various kinds and when I confronted him to accompany me for treatment he threatened me with death,” Mary reveals in the divorce suit.

    She wants the court to dissolve their marriage and share their wealth equally.

    Friday December 21, 2018 - Controversy still follows 85-year old Rift Valley tycoon, Jackson Kibor.


    After dramatically divorcing his two wives,  with the latest being his third wife, a divorce that ended in court and was dissolved barely 2 days ago, the controversial millionaire was spotted  swarmed by a bevy of young beauties as he parties the night away.


    The 85-year-old businessman may be old but he is keeping his soul young even as he quivers right up to old age.


    According to the viral video that surfaced online on Thursday, just two days after a court in Eldoret dissolved his marriage to third wife Naomi Jeptoo, Kibor is seen shaking to the musical tunes in classical moves.


    On the background is a ratchet sleazy hit song Kwangaru, the infectious ballad which describes how a woman should be 'disciplined' well in bed.


    Carried away by the love hit song, Kibor is seen jumping to the stage accompanied by five unidentified ladies to show the world what they got.


    The venue looks well manicured and everyone here is dressed in red typical of a corporate event.

    Friday, December 21, 2018 - Meru Senator, Mithika Linturi, is a randy man with a special appetite for sex, one of the reasons why his marriage with his estranged wife Mary Keitany crumbled.

    According to his wife, Mary, who has filed for divorce in a local court, Linturi has neglected his family and left his matrimonial home in Runda to enjoy sex escapades with his multiple sexual partners.

    In a divorce case filed at the Chief Magistrates Court in Meru, Mary revealed that the fiery Meru Senator is a habitual deserter of their matrimonial home and never provides for their children.

    She told the court that there’s a time he ran away from their matrimonial home in Runda without informing her and booked posh hotels where he enjoyed sex escapades with his concubines for weeks.

    One notably I found him checked in and booked at 14 Riverside Drive, Dusit and another time at Safari Park hotel where he had stayed for close to two weeks. Most recently he has  gone for six months without informing me,” Mary revealed  in the suit papers.

    She further revealed that the randy Senator married another woman secretly this year and they have a 4 year old child together.

    They noted as Luhyas, they are tired of being in Opposition every election cycle, noting that the region will form the next Government with Deputy President William Ruto come 2022.


    Led by Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka and former Kakamega Senator, Boni Khalwale, they pledged to support Ruto's 2022 Presidential bid, assuring him of their backing as he seeks to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.


    The Luhya leaders said they have decided to collaborate with the Government side to benefit from State initiatives as opposed to the Opposition side which has nothing to offer.

    Friday, December 21, 2018 - Former Chief of Staff in the Office of the Deputy President William Ruto, Mary Keitany, has revealed how her cheating and abusive husband, Mithika Linturi, has been torturing her.

    Mary wants the court to dissolve their marriage and revealed that the popular Senator has been causing her immense mental anguish.

    She revealed that Linturi has, on several occasions, threatened her with a pistol at their matrimonial home in Runda, putting her life in danger.

    She narrated to the court how her abusive husband comes home in the wee hours of the morning drunk and starts beating her like a dog and threatening to kill her.

    Through her lawyers, Kihang’a and Company Advocates, Mary says Linturi has treated her with extreme cruelty and willful emotional, physical and psychological neglect.

    “The respondent has totally abdicated all his responsibilities to his family as a husband and the respondent is a man of ungoverned temper, irresponsible behavior and outburst of rage. I have on several occasions made effort to reconcile our differences including inviting our family members, close relatives and friends to no avail,” Reads part of her divorce suit.

    The former powerful Chief of Staff in Ruto’s office says the mental and physical torture she has gone through in her marriage has affected her health and made her fall into depression.

    Mary told the court that she is currently surviving on daily medication after she fell into depression because of her abusive husband.

    Friday December 21, 2018- The Supreme Court has today upheld a decision from a lower court to nullify the election of Ugenya Member of Parliament Chris Karan and directed the Independent Electoraland Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to conduct fresh polls in the area.


    In March this year, High Court in Kisumu nullified the election of Karan as MP for Ugenya on grounds that the election was marred by malpractices thus not free and fair.


    In his ruling, Justice Triphisa Wanjiku Cherere had also directed Karan to pay the petitioner, former MP, David Ochieng, and the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Ksh.3.5 million each in costs, but Karan moved to the Court of Appeal where the ruling of the High Court was upheld.


    While delivering the ruling on Friday, the Supreme Court stated that the Court of Appeal applied the right procedure in upholding the nullification.


    ODM’s Chris Karan garnered 23,765 votes against his closest challenger David Ochieng who contested on a Movement for Democracy and Growth (MDG) party and garnered 23,418.

    Friday, December 21, 2018 - During the festive season, beaches in Mombasa are usually packed to capacity, teeming with people having a good time.

    However, somewhere in between this crowd, an evil mind lurks.


    Randy teens and beach boys are known to take advantage of the numbers and rape unsuspecting ladies.


    Some lure ladies with the offer of free swimming lessons then pull them deep into the ocean.


    Once they know the lady, who obviously doesn’t know how to swim, is at his mercy, they ask for the sexual favors and the girls have no option but to give in being aware of the consequences of rejection.


    Watch the video below and be careful especially when you visit those public beaches.
