VIDEO: Late night Kenyan drinkers welcome the outlawing of Alcoblow

Published

on

The Court of Appeal’s decision to invalidate the Traffic Breathalyser Rules 2011 commonly referred to as Alcoblow has been received with mixed reactions by Kenyans, with most who reacted on social media generally praising the court for the ruling.

On Friday, a three judge bench ruled that the law used to arrest drunk drivers was illegal in Kenya.





Moses Nyange wrote on Facebook: “Ilikuwa njia tu ya kujitajirisha juu hatujaona mabadiliko yoyote tangu alcoblow ianzishwe. The only difference we have seen is of officers getting richer and fatter by the night. I will continue drinking a little and driving home without a worry in the world.”

Katana nza wrote via snapchat: “The law was an infringement and an intrusion into my privacy. Shame on NTSA. Glad I won’t have to pay a bribe again.”

Jkarume says via twitter: Good riddance. There is no date to show that cases of road accidents have decreased due to the introductioon of Alcoblo. Ni mathii makiumaga!

Oketchoo wrote on Instagram: It is sad that accidents continue unabated but I must say these guys were bullies. I won’t miss them.

Judges GBM Kariuki, Fatuma Sichale and Festus Azangalala noted that the laws introduced by NTSA are inconsistent with the Traffic Act and should therefore be taken back to Parliament for review.

Minister caught on video masturbating says clip was for his wife

Published

on

South Africa’s embattled Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba, has resigned two weeks after a video of him masturbating was widely circulated online.

A statement from the presidency said Mr Gigaba – a senior member of the governing African Natuional Congress (ANC) – was “stepping aside for the sake of our country and the movement to which he belongs”.

Mr Gigaba had accused South Africa’s security services of hacking his phone and releasing the 13-second video which, he says, was for his wife.

The 47-year-old has courted controversy in recent years over allegations that he used his powerful roles in various ministerial portfolios to assist the controversial Gupta business family.

The Indian-born businessmen were widely linked to several corruption scandals under ex-President Jacob Zuma’s administration.

All parties, including Mr Gigaba, deny any wrongdoing.

Many questioned Mr Gigaba’s fitness to hold office, saying his reputation had been tarnished.

In recent weeks, the questions grew louder, first over a Constitutional Court ruling which upheld an earlier finding that he lied under oath while giving evidence about a government contract.

This was followed by a recommendation by the public protector that he be disciplined for ethical breaches.

Opposition parties had been pushing President Cyril Ramaphosa to sack him, and they have welcomed his resignation.
