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.

US-based Kenyan man holds 3 Pre-weddings in quick succession, fiancée says wedding must go on

Published

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

A Kenyan woman in Seattle, Washington, who has been at the center of a heated online debate has come out to openly declare her total support for her fiancé, who is being accused of scamming Kenyans by holding three Pre-wedding fundraisers within a few months: two in Maryland and Massachusetts and an upcoming one in Washington State.

In an exclusive interview with Kenya Satellite News Network Thursday, Pastor Serah Ndirangu said she is ready to get married to the man and “those casting doubts on the event are mere detractors whose opinions don’t really matter.”

She said she is well aware of what happened between the previous fiancée  and the Reverend and added that the upcoming pre-wedding was her own idea.

“Why do people like poking their noses in other peoples’ affairs?” she wondered.

“We really don’t care what they are saying…this is our life and no one is being forced to contribute a penny,” she said.

Our  pre-wedding will take place on November 10th “come rain, come shine,” she added.

She was referring to those who have raised concern over the number of times the man in question has “fallen in love.”

The debate is about one Reverend Stanley Mwea who held two pre-wedding fundraisers in May this year, in Baltimore and Boston. The woman he intended to marry was Susan Kangethe, but as fate would have it, differences arose before they could tie the knot and the wedding was called off.

Soon after that, Rev Mwea then fell in love with another woman, Ms Serah Ndirangu, and the two planned a third pre-wedding, slated for November 10th this year.

This did not go down very well with some Kenyans in the Diaspora, many of who took to social media to make position on the matter known. This comes at a time when Kenyans in different cities in the US have been complaining of rising instances where, after pre-weddings are held, the “love birds” vanish or relocate to different states, never to be seen again.

Now Pastor Serah Ndirangu said the wedding will take place in Seattle, Washington in early December. “The church elders and my fellow gospel musicians have encouraged me to go on with the arrangements and there is no looking back. God will fight on our behalf,” she added.

However, many people, mostly Kenyans, were skeptical:

Here are some of the comments:

Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Hasan Wario has been arrested. Wario was arrested on Thursday morning alongside three others after they surrendered themselves to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters in Nairobi.

Wario, who is currently the Kenyan ambassador to Austria, will face graft charges alongside other former Ministry of Sports officials.

The envoy is implicated in the misappropriation of more than Sh55 million set aside for the 2015 Rio Olympic games in Brazil during his tenure as Sports CS.

Wario, together with other officials are accused of making unauthorized payments running into millions of shillings, over-payment of allowances amounting to more than Sh15 million, and using Sh22 million to purchase flight tickets that were not utilized by athletes and officials.

Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji says there is enough evidence to charge the officials with misappropriation of millions of taxpayers cash.

“Upon independent review and consideration of evidence contained in the inquiry file, I am satisfied that there is sufficient evidence to charge the above suspects for misappropriation of over Sh55 million,” Haji said.

Others to be charged alongside Wario include Harun Komen (former Director of Administration in the ministry of Sports), Francis Kanyili (former Secretary General, NOCK), Patrick Kimathi (former Finance Officer, ministry of Sports) and Kipchoge Keino  former National Olympic Committee of Kenya Chairman).

Published

A farmer in Kandara, Murang’a County witnessed a ‘strange’ birth of a calf with two heads and six legs.

The owner of the calf, Mary Wanjiru, said she had never witnessed such an incident for the over thirty years that she has been a dairy farmer.

Ms Wanjiru said the mother of the calf died after the rare birth because of heavy bleeding.

She said this was the fourth time the cow had given birth, noting that the other births were normal.

“The abnormality of this calf has provoked many questions, but we have no one to blame. This is one of God’s wonders,” she said.

Residents of Ng’araria village streamed to Ms Wanjiru’s compound to have a look at the unusual calf.

Some onlookers took photos of the calf while others were terrified and speculated that a calamity had befallen the sleepy village.

The rare incident became the main subject of discussion all though Thursday at homes, schools, churches and eateries eliciting mixed reactions from the locals.

The calf died a few hours after it was born.
