Meanwhile, Kenyans of all walks of life started streaming into the swearing ceremony venue at Safaricom Stadium in Kasarani as early as 4am in order to secure vantage points to follow the goings-on of the much publicised event.

The organisers had asked all those planning to attend the event to be seated by 9am.

On Monday, Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho said the ceremony should start at exactly 10am as the law requires.

“This is a time-bound function because the president must be sworn in between 10am and 2pm,” Dr Kibicho told journalists at the stadium.

According to the Daily Nation, the organisers expect 60,000 people inside the stadium and have set up giant screens outside for the estimated 40,000 Kenyans who will not fit in.

The Assumption of the Office of the President committee has said that Sh384 million had been budgeted for the event and that any money not spent from the kitty will be grandfathered into Jamhuri Day celebrations on December 12.

On Sunday, Uhuru and his deputy, William Ruto, once again exhibited humility when they knelt down for prayers at a church in Huruma Estate, Nairobi.

VIDEO: Atwoli brags about his prowess in bedroom matters with his latest wife Mary Kilobi

Published

on

COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has for the first time spoken about his relationship with KTN news anchor Mary Kilobi after their marriage came to light a week ago.

Speaking during an interview at Citizen Tv with Jeff Koinange on JKL, Atwoli revealed that he met Kilobi 13 years ago when she was 21 and vowed to marry her.

“When I met her about 13 years ago, that’s in 2005 in Kampala and she was at that time with Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) and I was in the company of my second wife whom I have released to go and do politics and she has taken over.

“At that particular time we talked and she was still young at around 21 years old and I told her when you mature even if it takes 1000 years I will marry you. After her stay in Uganda she came back to Kenya, got a job with KTN.

“And because of the nature of work I do, you need somebody to assist you, you want somebody to rush and get you something and it must be a person you trust. She is my assistant, she is my lover, she is my wife and she got to take care of me. I’m a stupid lover,” said the COTU boss.

Asked to comment about his wife Mary Kilobi, who was watching the show at home, Atwoli described the Kiswahili anchor as a nice lady who is taking good care of him.

“I tell her she is a nice lady, she is taking care of me, she is committed to our relationship and that’s all. But that does not mean I don’t respect my elder wife. She is a wonderful mama she has kept my family together and she is doing a commendable job,” added Francis Atwoli.

When asked about the age difference he responded, “There is no age limit between a man and a woman, everywhere in the world.’’

Atwoli is 36 years her senior.

“Na kazi unaweza? Bado unasoma katiba?” asked Jeff. Watch:

In a candid interview with the Nairobian, the pretty media personality revealed that they met while she was in Uganda where she was working as an intern with Uganda Broadcasting Corporation.

Atwoli was in the station for an interview and upon hearing of a Kenyan girl who was working there, he insisted on meeting her.

They exchanged numbers and in 2016 he won her heart.

‘’He proposed to me but I said no. But he insisted. He persistently stated that he was serious and would wait for even 1000 years for me to say ‘yes’ and marry him,’’ said Kilobi.

VIDEO: I have lost many friends because of bomoabomoa – President Kenyatta

Published

President Uhuru Kenyatta has reassured Kenyans he would not relent in his fight against impunity and rampant corruption and not even his friends would be spared in the ongoing crackdown on illegal properties erected on wetlands. The president disclosed he had lost many friends in the past few weeks due to the demolitions, but he was not bothered by it.

Addressing a congregation at the Faith Evangelistic Ministry in Karen, Nairobi, on Sunday, August 12, Uhuru advised Kenyans not to be afraid of losing friends because of doing the right thing in the eyes of God. “I have lost many friends. Many have called me asking ‘how can you be watching when all the destruction is going on?’ I say a time has come to fight impunity. Let us lose our friends and do what is right in the eyes of God. Let us create a society that respects and treasures hard work and integrity, a nation with a conscience,” he said.

Anglican priest ‘busted’ at city lodging with married woman dies

Published

on

Anglican priest, Reverend Elijah Githinji, fell prey to a similar gang that allegedly blackmailed Kirinyaga Deputy Governor Peter Ndambiri in 2014 and later died in India after suffering a sudden ailment said to have been triggered by the dehumanising ordeal that left hima at the mercy of his followers.

He was buried at his rural Kabaro home, Ndia, Kirinyaga West Sub-county the same Monday Ndambiri identified the third suspect.

Ndambiri who arrived at the burial after 6pm told mourners that he was late for Githinji’s funeral as he was held up at a police identification parade in Nairobi.

“Although our brother has left without justice having been served, those who set him up will certainly be punished since we believe they were the same ones who subjected me to the dehumanising condition after falling into their trap,” he said.

Mourners at Githinji’s funeral recalled how the gang allegedly busted him from a lodging in Nairobi where he was a priest with a married woman leading to a thorough beating from the ‘husband,’ but Githinji maintained his innocence until his death.
