Sonko rejects Cabinet Post offered by Uhuru – Star

Published

on

Kenyan newspaper ‘The Star” is reporting that Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has rejected a cabinet post offered to him by president Uhuru Kenyatta apparently in exchange for quitting the Nairobi governor’s race in favour of Peter Kenneth.

According to a report published Thursday, Sonko has said he is determined to go the top job, aiming for the Jubilee Party ticket in primaries on Friday.

“Multiple sources close to the presidency yesterday told the Star that a Cabinet position has been offered and rejected several times, wrote “The Star.”

Kenneth will face off with Sonko.

“Sonko could have been CS for the Nairobi Metropolitan Region, a new post created for him. He would oversee Kiambu, Kajiado, Murang’a and Machakos counties,” wrote Star reporter on Wednesday.

“We have given up on Sonko. We wanted him to back Kenneth and we even offered him many other options, but he has rejected all of them,” the paper quotes a source it says is familiar with the matter.

The new development comes a day after Jubilee Party secretariat denied media reports that president Kenyatta had endorsed Mr Kenneth for the City’s top job. Mr Kenyataa had, while on his way to the burial of the father to former Gatanga MP David Murathe, asked thge residents of Kirwra village to “pray for Kenneth to win the Nairobi seat.”

Police are holding a security guard who allegedly broke into Zambian ambassador’s official residence he was assigned guard duties in Lavington, Nairobi and stole household items.

Libasia Mbache of Lavington Security Services is detained at Kileleshwa police station. He was arrested at his hideout in Kibera.

Detective constable Kevin Kisasati of the directorate of criminal investigations Kilimani offices obtained orders to detain Mbache for five days pending investigations.

The embassy’s employee visited the residence where the former ambassador lived and found the house broken into and several items missing, and reported the same to the police.

In an affidavit filed at Kibera law courts, Kisasati said Mbache, who had been assigned to guard the premises, stole the items and disappeared to an unknown location.

Kisasati said the DCI has interrogated several people and recorded statements of witnesses.

He was applying for court orders to hold Mbache for three days to gather more information and recover the missing items as well as arrest his accomplices who are at large.

The detective said he needs the time to take Mbache’s fingerprints to the National Registration Bureau for identification and the DCI headquarters to determine his criminal records.

The suspect’s call data records will also be used to identify his accomplices.

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

Kenyan entertainment veteran and film producer Dorothy Ghettuba who is the head of Netflix’s African Original Programming has said she is keen on  amplifying Africa’s creative potential and producing during this pandemic.

Speaking to CNN in an exclusive interview, Ms. Ghettuba said even as the pandemic is throwing a lot of the plans off-kilter, she is finding good stories in Africa adding that this is the best time to find stories.

“What we are doing is we are betting forward. We haven’t slowed down. It’s been about me speaking to writers, looking at scripts, looking at stories and finding the best stories to tell out there,” she told CNN’s Eleni Giokos in a video interview.

Ms. Ghettuba also said she was happy that during this pandemic period there has been an uptick of  people streaming Netflix  to entertain them when they’re at home.

Asked how Netflix approaching content production during times of lockdown and a health crisis she said: I think this crisis has made everybody pause and now we really have to relook at how we produce. Productions take place in pretty intimate, high-touch environments with hundreds of artists, people and creators all together in close quarters. So for us in the short term, these practices will have to be changed.
