Bishop, officer in court for robbery with violence

By Daisy Ngetich, Citizen Digital

Bishop in court
The head Bishop of Miracle Wonder Churches and a police officer attached to the Railways police station were arraigned in Kibra law court for allegedly being involved in robbery with violence in Nairobi area.
Senior Resident Magistrate Shedrack Mwinzi ordered Bishop Elijah Katitu and police constable Joseph Mutinda be detained for four more days to allow police complete investigations.
It is believed that more police officers might have been involved in the armed robbery that was conducted with the assistance of the bishop.
The case will be mentioned on September 2nd, 2015 to determine if charges will be preferred against the two.
This comes a week after Pastor James Ng’ang’a of Neno Evangelism Church was released on bail pending hearing of a case in which he is charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
He was released on a Ksh 500,000 cash bail or a one million shilling bond with a surety of a similar amount.

Why I have beef with Raila Odinga- Mutahi Ngunyi.

Mutahi has emphasised once more that he has nothing against the Luo nation but that his beef was with Raila.
Controversial political scientist Mutahi’s Ngunyi whose infamous ‘POVERTY STRICKEN LUOs’ ethnic slur sent Nyanza residents huffing with fury found himself in unfamiliar territory when a tyranny of furious ‘twitterati’ descended on him with tweets and blows.
“In 2007, I stuck my neck out for him, and said Kibaki should hand over power to Raila because he (Raila) had won the elections fair and square. Raila instead got into a power sharing deal with Kibaki and turned his back on us. He further went and added my name on the list of Mungiki after post-election violence. I took that personally. That’s my problem with Raila,” explains Ngunyi.
He equates Raila to Moses in the bible, saying “Our Moses was Raila, and we sent him to negotiate with Pharoah, only for him to turn his back on us. He got invited into Pharaoh’s table and he forgot about his Israelites.”
He, however, says that before 2007, he had an amicable relationship with Raila.
“We both grew up in Eastlands and one person I used to admire was Jaramogi (Raila’s father). I also admired Raila greatly because he gave us dreams, dreams that we could topple the Kanu regime. I admired him, until he became a turn coat revolutionary.”
Speaking to the Luo Nation, Ngunyi apologised once more for his tweet: “I can assure you that the tweet wasn’t premeditated. I apologise for the unintended hurt it caused all Luos,” said Ngunyi adding that he is ready to face the Luo Council of Elders with a goat to seek forgiveness.
Ngunyi explained that his tweet was in reference to those segments of that community whose poverty has been perpetuated intentionally for political reasons.
“I quoted Bondo for instance whose 82 per cent of the population lives below the poverty line. Kibera is another case in point, where its liberation from poverty through NYS has been opposed by political strongholds. Victims of this ‘poverty-producing’ scheme are the ones I was referring to when I talked about Luos who are ‘stricken’ by poverty,” he said.

Moses Kuria comes to Joy Gwendo's aid

Press Release
Mombasa, 28th August 2015
I wish to express my disappointment with the verdict of TNA's Disciplinary Committee in the case of Sen Joy Gwendo
I find the decision to debar, suspend and even recommend Sen Gwendo bizarre, extreme and diwnright callous
What TNA needs at this time is what the country needs:- Sobriety, engagement as opposed to estrangement and inclusiveness. We are less than two years before the next General Elections. We need to lower political gears and hit the pedal harder on development and fulfilling the promises we made to the people of Kenya. Whatever the committee wants to achieve through this incomprehensible ruling is nothing compared with the damage in terms of polarizing our members especially alongside ethnic and gender lines. TNA as envisioned by those of us who founded the party is a party of tolerance, cohesion, inclusion and national unity
There was no complaint from Sen Kindiki Kithure our senate majority leader nor Sen Beatrice Elachi our senate majority whip regarding Sen Gwendo's voting record in the senate. How then can a decision with an effect of ending her fledgling political career be based on her voting record in the senate? Is the disciplinary committee crying more than the bereaved?
In any case the alleged voting where Sen Gwendo voted for Sen Khalwale as opposed to GG Kariuki happened 2 years ago. Which is this amnesia that gripped our party for this long. This is tantamount to witchhunt and political revisionism. It is the same thing we accuse the opposition of: Driving the car with the rear mirror only.
I call upon the National Oversight Board to reject this decision by the committee. We need every TNA member and more so Sen Joy Adhiambo Gwendo

Uhuru Posted This Picture on Facebook, and Now Everyone’s Talking… (Team Mafisi)

By Ken   /   Thursday, 27 Aug 2015 07:00AM   /     /   Tags: museveni, Salva Kiir, Uhuru

President Uhuru was in Juba yesterday alongside President Museveni and Ethiopian PM Hailemariam Desalegn to witness South Sudan leader Salva Kiir append his signature to a peace agreement to end the conflict that has been raging in South Sudan for the last two years.
It happened that a very beautiful lady was tasked with presenting the documents to Salva Kiir, and guiding him as he put his signature. Naturally, there had to be some slight bending over involved.
The president’s social media guy posted this suggestive photo on Facebook, and the comments that followed were quite expected.
The guy on the far right of the picture is First Vice President of Sudan, Bakri Saleh Hassan, and it looks like he’s the only one with no explaining to do to his wife.
Uhuru makes no effort to hide it, but he can argue the lady was standing directly in front of him. Museveni also makes it pretty obvious.
Check out these sampled comments.
David Omondo  – All eyes on that lady..eeish angalieni signature ya kiir kama ni fake!
Nick Njogu – Uhuru checking out the supporting documents
Christian Munywoki – Even I would have stolen a glance why lie. Watu wasikuletee panganga.
Fred Maren Torome – Your eyes and those of the prime minister don’t seem to be on the treaty Mr president!
Garabola Katoto – Who’s this woman, even the woman on the back is looking at her.. lol.. Oh nature, nature, nature.. Playing tricks lol
William Obul – They are, looking at her like she is a president, these old guys want to hire her
Melvin Malcolm Bwembya – this lady will make millions of dollars in south sudan, all eyes on her
Stephen Ododah – All eyes on one thing except the peace deal… I don’t blame the Gents…
Jackson Njeru – Team Mafisi sacco
Tony Ricky Spanish – The thirst strikes again

Uganda does not have extra sugar - Kituyi

THIS IS NOT ENOUGH: A worker weighs and packs bags of sugar at the Mumias Sugar Company in Western Kenya on February 24.

THIS IS NOT ENOUGH: A worker weighs and packs bags of sugar at the Mumias Sugar Company in Western Kenya on February 24.
August 28, 2015
THE United Nations trade chief yesterday refuted claims that Uganda has surplus sugar.
United Nations Conference on Trade and Development secretary general Mukhisa Kituyi warned that Uganda could be used as a conduit for illegal sugar into Kenya, as it has no capacity to export.
The remarks came on the day a report by the East African Community’s Directorate of Customs and Trade indicated that Uganda does not have enough sugar.
“If there is pressure for sugar to enter Kenya from Uganda, when Uganda obviously has no surplus sugar being produced there, then what does it mean?” Kituyi told the Star.
“It means the lords of poverty are using Uganda as a conduit for smuggling sugar from third parties into East Africa and loading it into the Kenyan market.”
Kituyi said Kenyans have a right to block “greed that could sound the death knell for Kenya’s sugar industry”.
He said Uganda should be allowed unfettered access to the Kenya market under the EAC Common Market Protocol, if it were a surplus country.
On Saturday, the Cord brigade led by Raila Odinga will pitch tent in Kakamega and Bungoma – the heartland of the sugar belt – to try and turn the tables on Jubilee and ring-fence the vote bloc it considers its political epicentre.
The country’s largest sugar milling factory, the Mumias Sugar Company, is in Kakamega county, while the Nzoia Sugar Company is in Bungoma county.
Other smaller companies like Kabras Millers and the Butali Sugar Factory are also in Kakamega county.
A statement from Orange House, ODM headquarters, said Cord will be in Bungoma and then to Kakamega to have “consultative forums with farmers”.

Comedian Owago Onyiro responds to rumours of being a father

By Brian Okoth, Citizen Digital

Don’t believe the rumours: renowned comedian Owago Onyiro is not about to become a dad.
Speculations that Owago would be joining the Fathers’ Club were rife after he posted a photo showing him posing alongside an expectant woman.
The picture, which was posted on Instagram, also showed Owago touching the baby bump of the heavily expectant woman.
The comedian captioned the image on his official handle: “Baby shower coming soon.”
This prompted fans to fill his timeline with congratulatory messages:
One DJ Nasvin Kenya wrote: “Welcome to the world of fatherhood, Owago.”
Another Shiro Shiz, posted: “Wow, congratulations Owago.”
Some webloids too picked up the image and even speculated that the funnyman could soon be a father.
However, speaking to Citizen Digital on phone, the comedian clarified that the woman in the photo is a fan who requested to take a picture with him.
“You know tabloids at times are notorious for publishing unconfirmed reports. The woman was a good fan whom I met in a recent event. She requested to take a photo with me, to which I agreed. I have no wife; neither do I have a woman who is pregnant by me,” he told.
The comedian is famous for his Ichieni (you are being cursed) jokes that poke fun at the Luo community. He was one of the entertainers at Ramogi Night’s Luo festival in July.
