Corridors of Power

What is going on with Ferdinand Waititu's billboards? Most of them along Thika Road, Kariakor area and several other parts of the city have been replaced by Uhuruto's billboards.

A top lawyer who sensationally missed out on a top job and a businessman nearly came to blows at the maternity ward bedside of a young woman who had just delivered a baby. Both men thought they were responsible for the girl's pregnancy as she had been intimate with both without their knowledge. Meeting at her bedside and demanding to be told what the other was doing there, the men were stunned when the young woman told them neither was the father of her baby. She pointed to a young man who had been sitting quietly in the room and whom they had both ignored assuming he was a relative and both were rendered speechless when she told them that the young man was actually the baby daddy!

The bureaucrat told of how they saved the man's marriage after they realized that he was spending all his salary on drinking sprees spread over two or three days after he received his pay. Instead of paying his salary to his account, the bureaucrat said they made it possible for his wife to receive a huge portion of it every month. This brought an end to the endless 'camping' at the ministry's reception area whenever her wayward husband 'forgot' to meet his financial obligations.
