     Saturday,  January 5, 2019-Controversial Sports Cabinet Secretary, Rashid Echesa, has been caught up in a human trafficking ring after 8 foreign ladies of Pakistan origin, believed to be prostitutes,  were arrested entertaining men at Balle Balle Club in Parklands.


    Balle Balle club operates as a strip club at night and men flock there to watch ladies dance naked while others book them for sex.


    When the ladies were presented to Milimani Law Courts on Friday, their lawyer, Evans  Ondieki, revealed that Cabinet Secretary, Rashid Echesa, facilitated their entry into the Country.


    Apparently, the 8 ladies who are prostitutes were disguised as traditional dancers when they sneaked into the Country with the help of Echesa.


    Mr Ondieki  told the Court that the ladies  entered the Country with special passes that were issued to them under the instructions of the Cabinet Secretary.


    “What government are the police serving and what government is Mr Echesa serving? Aren’t they serving the same regime?Are police struggling to implement the directive of Mr Echesa?” the lawyer wondered.


    Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate, Kennedy Cheruiyot, ordered the 8 foreign ladies to be released on free bond and be kept in a safe house.


    The  case will be heard on January 8th.

    Speaking yesterday, Noordin’s father, Yusuf Haji, who is also the Senator forGarissa County, opened up about the nature of his son’s job expressing worry over his life.


    He noted that although he was proud of his son landing the job as DPP, he was concerned about the high likelihood of it earning him enemies, including killers and assassins.


    We are very proud, but at the same time we are a bit worried because the work he is doing for his country will raise many enemies,” Yusuf said.


    Since his appointment, Haji has been deemed the face of corruption due to his persistence in pursuing cases involving powerful people in the country.


    He has received several threats, including death threats, from people he is pursuing but has vowed that he would never give up the fight against corruption.

    Saturday, January 5, 2019-During New Years Eve celebration in Thika, Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, lectured President Uhuru Kenyatta like a toddler while drunk.

    Kuria accused Uhuru of using Kikuyus like voting robots and  turning them  into fools , remarks that have been condemned by Central Kenyan leaders.


    When he was making the reckless remarks, he confessed that he was drunk.


    Kiambu Women Rep, Gathoni Wa Muchomba, is among the leaders who were irked by Kuria’s remarks and she told him go to a rehab and get help.


    The Women Rep revealed that Kuria has turned into an alcoholic and this might be true because the controversial MP is rarely sober.

    Blackpool currently sit in 10th place in League One but they are no strangers to the Gunners with the teams having already faced each other in this season's EFL Cup.


    This match will represent the 84th competitive meeting between the two clubs, with Arsenal registering 44 wins in comparison to 15 victories for Blackpool.


    The teams have only met on four occasions since 1976, and Arsenal have scored 14 times in prevailing in each of those encounters. Go Here>>>


    However, Arsenal only recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Blackpool at the Emirates Stadium when the teams met in the EFL Cup at the end of October.

    Prediction: Blackpool 1-3 Arsenal Go Here>>>


    Unai Emery is expected to rest a number of star players but that should not hinder their efforts to register a routine win.


    Blackpool competed well against their more illustrious opponents in the EFL Cup, but Emery will now know much more about the third-tier outfit ahead of this game.

    Saturday January 5, 2018-ODM leader Raila Odinga is set to meet President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday at the Coastal town of Mombasa amid looming Cabinet reshuffle.

    Raila landed in Mombasa directly from Windhoek, Namibia, on Thursday where he had gone for official assignment from the African Union.



    According to source, Raila will meet Uhuru in Mombasa in a closed-door meeting ostensibly to reshuffle the Cabinet.



    "Mzee left for Mombasa Thursday, he is scheduled to meet the President for consultations,” said Raila’s aide who sought anonymity because the meeting is private. 



    The two leaders will on Monday be joined by Deputy President William Ruto for the commissioning of Sh1 billion Mama Ngina Drive regeneration where Raila will again appear in his capacity as head of infrastructural development in AU.



    Cabinet Secretaries, especially those allied to Ruto, are now waiting with bated breath of what the outcome of the meeting will be.

    Saturday January 5, 2019-Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) rebels from the Coast region have been put on notice and seriously warned  against their unending attacks on the party and its leadership.


    Speaking yesterday, a group of MPs, led by Likoni lawmaker Mishi Mboko and Teddy Mwambire of Ganze, told the rebels, among them Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa and her Kilifi North counterpart Owen Baya, to leave both party leader Raila Odinga and his Deputy, Hassan Joho, out of their issues or else they will have them to contend with.


    Mboko said that they are busy with matters of national importance, among them the Government's Big 4 agenda, and have no time for idlers like Jumwa or Baya.


    "They are not on the same level.”



    “Joho is a national figure who enjoys the support of the whole country.”



     He cannot lower himself to their level,” Mboko said.



    On his part, Mwambire accused Jumwa of ungratefulness, claiming that Joho played an important role in her election but she is now repaying him with insults and accusations.



    "What the rebel MPs are doing is what can be well referred to as the kicks of a dying horse.”


    “When the Governor influenced her appointment to the post, she kept quiet.”



    “We expected her to come out publicly and tell the Coast people that the Governor played a role,” he said.



    Jumwa and Baya recently accused Joho of undermining them over their opposition to the party policies.

    Saturday January 5, 2019-ODM Leader Raila Odinga has vehemently denied being part of the looming Cabinet reshuffle by President Uhuru Kenyatta as is being rumored.

    This comes even as it is reported that Uhuru summoned all Cabinet Secretaries to Mombasa and is expected to meet Raila Odinga over the same.



    Through ODM Communication Director Philip Etale, Raila dismissed media reports that he could have schemed to have the Cabinet reshuffles with Uhuru, saying the meeting is just like any other meeting.



    “This happens world over and Heads of State and Governments often do reshuffles in their administrations perhaps to enhance efficiency and good service delivery among others.”



    “This is not an exception for Uhuru Kenyatta.”



    “He has a Government he runs and controls.”



    “If he wants to make changes, it is his prerogative to do so,” said Raila through Etale.



    "So for anyone to associate Hon. Raila Odinga with such decisions is just but becoming malicious.”



    “RAO does not run the Government and if people want to settle their political scores by dragging him into their internal problems, then Kenyans can only be sorry with them.”



    “Raila and Uhuru are friends, brothers and leaders.”



    “However, this should not stop the President from discharging his duties.”



    “So leave Raila out of this.”



    “Such propaganda is not healthy at all," he added.

    Saturday January 5, 2019-Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria has dismissed claims that he abused President Uhuru Kenyatta during his New Year Eve‘s message at Thika Stadium on Tuesday.

    Speaking in Kimunyu shopping Centre on Friday, Kuria said his sentiments were directed at Governor Ferdinand Waititu and Kiambu Women Representative Gathoni wa Muchomba whom he accused of orchestrating slow development in the county.


    He accused the two of competing over the rehabilitation of alcoholics which he termed as shameful and petty.


    “When leadership in Nyeri are inviting the President to commission markets, an airstrip and a road, the leadership of Kiambu are directing the president to issue certificates to drunkards, its a shame," he said.


    The outspoken MP said his attacks on the duo were misconstrued by people who want to bring enmity between him and the president.


    Kuria said his long-standing working relationship with the president speaks for itself.


    "We have worked together every step of the way almost on a daily basis from 2007 up to the present day and I have never disrespected the President," he said.

    Saturday, January 05, 2019- Citizen TV’s Willis Raburu has opened up for the first time how he met his wife Mary Ngami.

    The popular TV host wed Mary in 2017 in a low-key affair just one year after breaking up with Sally Mbilu.


    Raburu had dated Sally Mbilu since 2013 and in 2014 he proposed to her but they broke up two years later under unclear circumstances.


    Speaking during a TV interview, Raburu said:  “We met in church, at Jubilee Christian Church through my friend Pablo. 

    "He introduced me and when I saw her, l was like ‘Good Lord Hallelujah!’


    “But even though I noticed her fine-ness, I didn’t do anything as I was still in a relationship. About a year passed by after we met,”


    He added:  “After my break up, I reached out to her (Mary). I was very sceptical, nilimtesa sana.



    “She would reach out to me and I just didn’t reply. This was because I wanted to know whether she loved Willis wa TV or just Willis. I cancelled like 4 times,” 


     “We started getting to know each other, I broke my knee and she started coming over.


    “During that time she would give me things instead of asking for things which is what I was used to.”

    Saturday January 5, 2019-Gatanga MP, Joseph Nduati, has revealed the man who is supposed to replace President Uhuru Kenyatta as Mt Kenya kingpin once he retires in 2022.

    Uhuru, 58, will hang his political boots in 2022 and he will leave a huge political vacuum in the region if he fails to appoint his heir.


     Speaking on Friday, Nduati said the front-runner to succeed Uhuru is Peter Kenneth because “he is not divisive, is level-headed and has experience even for running for president and city governor.”


    He said PK is being courted by National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto groups because of his national appeal, adding that for such a role, the candidate needs to stand a good chance to be elected President.


    “PK can easily be accepted in the region and nationally. He fits the bill. He has been keeping a low profile because he does not want to be the subject of speculation prematurely. He gives the present top leaders a chance to do their work without distractions,”


    “PK is the man for Central Kenya. You know, even in Central Kenya, we are conscious of the fact that Nyeri and Kiambu have produced Presidents, in fact, Kiambu has produced two - Mzee Kenyatta and his son Uhuru Kenyatta. We in Murang’a feel that we need an opportunity to also show our ability for political and economic management. The whole of Mt Kenya is very aware of this dynamic even as talk starts about who will get into Uhuru’s shoes,” Nduati said.

    “Human Trafficking & Enslavement are international crimes under Article 7 of Rome Statute. It’s also a Federal Offence in USA. Sports CS Rashid Echesa has on his motion invited International Criminal Court (ICC) On himself ... His village career will end in the global stage.
