    Saturday, December 22, 2018- Remember the Ambira High School students, who were caught on camera hurling insults to Cabinet Secretaries, Fred Matiang’i and Amina Mohammed after sitting their KCSE exams?

    Well, the results are out and they performed dismally despite bragging to have cheated during the examinations.


    All the seven students who were arrested after on November 21 and spent two days at Ungunja police station scored C- and below except one who obtained a B-.


    Three scored a D plain, two strong D+, one C-(minus)


    The boys stirred a national conversation when the video of them hurling insults and state officers emerged online attracting the anger of President Uhuru who said they should be punished.


    However, they were let off the hook after State Prosecutor David Okachi said the DPP has received files of the minors but asked for more time to conduct investigations.


    A section of Kenyans including Siaya Senator James Orengo defended the boys claiming they were emulating uncouth politicians who have been hurling insults at each other.

    Saturday December 22, 2018-State House blogger, Dennis Itumbi has castigated economist, David Ndii after he seriously watered-down Deputy President William Ruto’s PhD in Plant Ecology.

    On Friday, Ruto was conferred with Doctor of Philosophy in Plant Ecology by University of Nairobi.


     However in a bitter social media post, Ndii referred Ruto as a conman and even urged him that he was lucky to have "received a credential for his obituary."


    “Congratulations conman. When you sleep at night, you will know you have not earned a PhD, just like the rest of your loot. But at least now you have a credential for your obituary,” Ndii wrote in a Tweet.


     However in a fast rejoinder, Itumbi dared Ndii to write a dictionary of insults and publish it on a journal below the belt.


    "Congratulations Sir, now write a dictionary of insults. Publish it in the academic journal of below the belt! Godspeed!" Itumbi told Ndii on his Twitter page.

    Sunday, December 23, 2018- This chilling video of a motorist beating a driver who scratched his car at a gas station is going viral on social media.

    The guy whose car was hit did not want to hear any excuses as he descended on the poor driver with blows before he could even assess the damage.


    Other motorists tried to calm him but he could hear nothing.

    Sunday December 23, 2018-Former South Mugirango MP, Omingo Magara, has said Kisii and Nyamira counties are lagging behind in terms of development because of the electorate electing lazy and incompetent MPs.

    Speaking on Saturday, Magara said Gusii residents will continue to suffer until 2022 when they will have a chance to make good choices again. 


    "It is sad that there is no tangible development being witnessed for the last one year across the entire Gusii region. All elected leaders are lazy and busy embezzling public funds meant for development," Magara said. 


    The vocal politician claimed that the electorates should not repeat the same mistakes made during the last year's polls in 2022 generation elections. 


    The former lawmaker also argued that Members of County Assembly (MCAs) in Nyamira and Kisii Counties have been colluding with their area governors to divert public funds to their pockets.  


    "MCAs have failed in their oversight role to ensure the county bosses are using money sent from the national government appropriately," he noted.

    Sunday, December 23, 2018-Kenyan female politicians have lost morals and reduced to cheap flesh peddlers  who are offering their "Nunus"  to anything in a trouser.


    Instead of working for the people who voted for them, they are busy having sex and recording tapes.


    Even before Kenyans forget about the controversial sex tape linked to Wajir Women Rep Fatma Gedi, another sex video involving a female Kamba politician has emerged and spread on social media like bushfire.


    The sex video that has taken Kenya’s social media by storm involves Makueni Member of County Assembly (MCA), Sarah Kioko, who represents Wote ward.


    In the leaked video, the sexually starved MCA is seen being banged hard by an unidentified man, who is well endowed down there.


    She tries to hide her face when the camera gets closer to her but the man captures her face well.


    The randy MCA almost spoke in tongues as the man worked on her thoroughly without using protection.

    The cunning man  probably recorded the video to blackmail her and when she refused to give out some money to him, he decided to humiliate her by leaking the video.


    If you feel like watching the video below, put on ear-phones or find a private place

    Sunday December 23, 2018-Machakos County governor, Dr Alfred Mutua, has urged former Kathiani MP, Wavinya Ndeti, to join him and continue developing Machakos County.

    Speaking a day after Supreme Court upheld his victory after a long protracted court battle with Wavinya, Mutua urged her to join him for the sake of peace and prosperity of Machakos County.


    The county chief added that his doors were open even to his political rivals, further stating that the time for politicking was over.


    He further stated that development was required to recover lost time as a result of the contest on his election which dragged on for one and a half years.


     On Friday, the Supreme Court dismissed a petition by Ms. Ndeti and declared that Governor Mutua was validly elected in the August 2017 poll.


     After the ruling Wavinya, who almost cried, maintained that Mutua never won the seat in a free and fair manner.

    Sunday December 23, 2018-Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta and National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, to use the power of handshake and reduce the high wage bill.

     According to Kuria, the wage bill of Sh 1.5 trillion is unsustainable and will put Kenya in danger of economic collapse.


    In a Facebook post on Saturday, Kuria said enough was enough and some civil servants needed to be send home to cut down on the annual wage bill of over Sh 1.5 trillion.


    The vocal lawmaker said the country needed to send half of over 700,000 public service employees home if it wanted to experience economic growth.


    “We must milk the handshake to fix our economy. We must take advantage of it to reform the civil service through a massive voluntary early retirement that will retrench at least half of public workers," said Kuria.


    The lawmaker expressed worry the current unstable economic situation that had stalled since two elections in 2017 could get worse if such radical measures would not be taken.


     "We can no longer bandage this wound any more. Open the emergency room and call in the surgeon," Kuria told Uhuru.

    Speaking during the annual Kimalel goat auction in Baringo County on Saturday ,Ruto urged Kalenjin leaders who are always divided in national issues, to unite and defeat poverty ignorance and diseases.


    He said all leaders should be united for the sake of development.


     During the event, Ruto purchased goats worth Sh 10 million.


    Ruto told the farmers that he will share the goats with President Uhuru Kenyatta and their other friends.


    "My boss Uhuru Kenyatta sent me with Sh4 million to buy 400 goats to give as Christmas gift to members of his security detail," Ruto said.


    Water Cabinet Secretary (CS) Simon Chelugui paid Sh 2 million cash to purchase 200 goats.

    Sunday December 23, 2018- A section of Rift Valley leaders have congratulated Deputy President William Ruto for attaining Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Plant Ecology.

    On Friday, Ruto, who is the second in Command in the country’s power structure, was conferred with a PhD in Plant Ecology by University of Nairobi.


     Now speaking during  Kimalel goats  festival in Baringo county on Saturday, MPs led by  Baringo North MP William Cheptumo and his Baringo South counterpart Charles Kamuren said this is the only reward the region should give Ruto for his academic success.


    “Count on me fully. I will mobilise all votes and make sure the entire Baringo county is locked for you to takeover presidency in 2022," Kamuren said.


    His sentiments were echoed by Cheptumo and Moses Lessonet (Eldama-Ravine) who said they will support Ruto's bid for his hard work and tireless service to humanity.


     Kikuyu MP, Kimani Ichungwa, who also attended the auction, said Ruto is the best bet for presidency since he is the only presidential candidate who has a PhD.


    “Others like Raila have only a metal work diploma, we should elect a more educated person like Ruto in 2022,” Ichungwa said.
