BREAKING NEWS: Wetang’ula withdraws from senate race



Moses Masika Wetang’ula will not defend his Bungoma senatorial seat in the forthcoming general elections, Kenyas Dily Nation newspaper is reporting.

Ford Kenya has dismissed claims that the party leader  will contest the seat which he currently holds.

Mr Wetang’ula, one of the five National Super Alliance (Nasa) co-principals, did not participate in nominations, according to the party.

“Ford Kenya issued nomination certificates to all her candidates on May 4. (Mr) Wetang’ula was not one of them,” deputy party leader Boni Khalwale said.

There are fears that Nasa has stretched its risks too far by not having Mr Wetang’ula and Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi contest in the August 8 polls.

The two, besides Mr Odinga and his deputy, could remain “jobless” for five years if Nasa fails to ascend to power.


Together with Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto, they have been promised senior Cabinet positions in the Nasa line-up if the coalition forms the next government.

However, Mr Ruto will defend his seat and a fierce battle is expected between him and National Assembly Deputy Speaker Joyce Laboso.

Unlike the Senate race, the party has a candidate who will square it out with Governor Kenneth Lusaka.

This has sent strong signals that Mr Wetang’ula, the Senate minority leader, could be the party’s choice for the seat.


President Kenyatta has criticised the positions proposed to be shared amongst the Nasa co-principals, saying they are not in the Constitution.

“They have taken a year deliberating on how to share positions that do not exist in the Constitution,” Mr Kenyatta said.

But ODM leader Raila Odinga, the Nasa presidential flag-bearer, rubbished claims that the Constitution must be changed to accommodate the positions.

“We don’t need to amend the Constitution. The president can delegate some of his powers,” Mr Odinga said.

However, he added, the Constitution can be reviewed if Kenyans so wish.

The opposition has been insisting that the original Bomas draft Constitution that had the views of a majority of Kenyans was mutilated by some self-centred politicians.

VIDEO: For Kimani Wanguhu, 22 years in US have borne fruits as he owns 2 successful business in two worlds




Meet Wilson Kimani Wanguhu. He has lived in the US for 22 years where, besides getting an education, he has also learnt the ropes. Just like many who have relocated from Kenya to US, it was not easy at the beginning. When he landed in the US in 1996, he struggled to pay his fees and sustain himself. “I used to flip burgers and later sold petrol at a gas station,” he says.

But now those are distant memories. His entrepreneurial streak has seen him venture into business and he now sells insurance in the Atlanta, Georgia and water in Nakuru, Kenya.

Wanguhu has put up systems that enable him to run businesses in both cities effectively and his story is an example of the impact of remittances from Abroad. He  says having lived in a country where systems function like clock work, setting up shop in Kenya has had its fair share of challenges.

The former CEO of Kim Media Group and publisher of Kenya Empowerment Newspaper is however upbeat and quite happy with what the has achieved so far. He co-owns Ameritrust Insurance Group and has teamed up with his mom and his younger brother, Ezekiel Manyara, as the co-proprietors of Riftdrops Limited, a water bottling Company with its headquarters in Nakuru.

“If you are doing well in Kenya, stay there…,” he advises would-be migrants. He spoke to Alex Chamwada in this week’s episode of  Daring Abroad. Here is his story.

Radio journalist Njambi Koikai has posted a photo of her admitted in a United States hospital that has moved thousands of her fans, who are wishing her a speedy recovery.Koikai, a former radio presenter with the Nation Media Group, has been battling Thoracic Endometriosis, an abnormal growth of endometrial cells outside the uterus, which has seen her move from one hospital to another both in Kenya and overseas seeking treatment.

She says she has been in hospital for two weeks now and had four chest tubes inserted and also needs a walker to go to the bathroom and for physiotherapy.

She laments the endometriosis, which first manifested when she was 13 years old, had spread so much and the scar tissue plus the placement of wrong chest tubes back at Kenya created the mess.

God has been so great. Your prayers are reaching God’s ears, heart, soul and mind. He sees and hears all. Thank you for all your prayers, love and support. We all focusing on healing and therapy. So the last two weeks have been filled with agony, pain, tears and more tears. But we serve a living God. 3 chest tubes were removed 2 days ago and i only have one small one left. I’m now able to walk on my own. Breathe easy. Talk and laugh etc,” she writes.

Before the disease took a toll on her, Njambi was popular figure in the entertainment industry. Through her Street Empire Entertainment Company, the former Metro FM and QFM host and DJ organised and held various gigs across the country.

She is now appealing to well wishers to assist her financially through Jahmby Koikai Fund. Paybill Number is 490681. She has previously undergone a series of surgeries, the last one being in the United States last year.
