Story of a Kenyan family in US buying a car for their son sparks outrage, nasty comments

Published

on

After Kenya Satellite Network posted a feel-good story on Monday about a family that felt it necessary to reward their high school graduate son with a car, (read: Kenyan parents in US reward son wit an Audi A6 for excelling in school), reaction on the social media was fast and furious (literally so).

The story was shared in many Kenyan Diaspora groups. However, the comments appearing under the post in a group named Kenyans in the Unites States (USA) have caught our attention.

Whereas some of the comments are generally encouraging, most are outright nasty, with a few even wondering whether the story was newsworthy.

Check them out and tell us what you think.

Here are some of the comments:

Musa Conglomerate Some folks can be assholes I tell you. We know that it’s not NEW. But it’s New to him. I’m sure you’ve used or heard that “New” car but it’s basically used. Geez guys losen up. Kama mzazi wako didn’t buy you a German machine stop pararira mingi n congratulate the guy….if he was an Akataa,Asian,Mzungu y’all would be kissing their ass and worshipping them. SMFH.

Nixon Muiruri Why can’t we be happy for the family ? Why be so petty ? Brand new, used who cares ? The parents promised the child a car and he performed and got one. Look at it this way, remember when you were a kid and you were promised a bike if you became number 1 in school ? Well from this chat I can see those who didn’t get a bike .. 😎😎 let the parents and their child have the spotlight .. congratulations young man, hope you continue the trend in college.

Stevox Et Al That car does not look brand new. The last model of A6 3.2 was produced in 2008. 2017 audi A6 is a 3.0T and the front bumper, grill and headlights looks very different from the one in the picture.

Gathu C James First Congratulations! to the boy. secondly i dont see why this is news unless its a tailor made to show off. (shamrack is good at that) which has benefits and disadvantages equally the same. we buy stuff to kids including food all the time and none is in the news.(other kids buy their own cars with no problem) being the only two black kids is overkill. white people are more in US than black(13.5%), so delete that its insulting and sensless like what did you expect(to go get black people and enroll them in ugh!) and bring them in the school?. so that they are not the only two…..

James Wachai Wow! Petty jealousy. Ati payment kicks on August 1st. The dealership sold to them after it determined they could afford to pay. That’s, they had good credit. Who in this country pays cash for a car? Even drug dealers won’t do it for fear of arrest. These parents have a right to reward their child in whatever way they choose.

EXPLAINED: Everything you need to know about applying for 2021 US Diversity Visa [VIDEO]

Published

on

Once again, up to 55,000 foreign nationals and their families from around the world will have a chance to legally immigrate to the United States and achieve the American Dream with a Green Card in hand in 2021, thanks to one of the Diversity Visa lottery Program. Although President Donald Trump is against it, that will not happen unless the law is changed…and the US is a land strictly governed by the rule of law.

The U.S. State Department, which administers the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, better known as the visa lottery, announced Thursday that it will go ahead with the lottery for 55,000 diversity visas available for Fiscal Year 2021.

In case you missed it The US government announced Thursday that the registration period for DV-2021 will begin on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019 at 12pm EDT and end on Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 at 12pm EST.

The winners will be drawn from random selection and there is no cost to register.

There is a limited period of time during which you can register for the Diversity Immigrant Visa (DV) Program during each fiscal year. Each year, the Department of State publishes detailed instructions for entering the DV Program. These instructions include the dates of the registration period during which you will be able to enter.

All entries must be submitted electronically on the Electronic Diversity Visa (E-DV) website at www.dvlottery.state.gov during the specified registration period. No late entries or paper entries are accepted. The law allows only one entry by or for each person during each registration period. The Department of State uses sophisticated technology to detect multiple entries. If you submit more than one entry you will be disqualified.

Some changes have been made since the last such Lottery Program. Here is all you need to know:

Detailed guidance for completing the online entry form is included in the DV Instructions.

Please view our video for an introduction to the Diversity Visa program, and step-by-step guidance to help you submit an entry. (Note: minor changes have been made to the DV-2020 entry form, but the instructions provided in the video are still valid.)

After you submit a complete entry, you will see a confirmation screen containing your name and a unique confirmation number. Print this confirmation screen for your records. It is extremely important that you retain your confirmation number. It is the only way you can check the status of your entry, and you will need it to obtain further instructions or schedule an interview for a visa if you are selected.

There is no cost to register for the DV Program. You are strongly encouraged to complete the entry form yourself, without a “Visa Consultant,” “Visa Agent,” or other facilitator who offers to help. If somebody else helps you, you should be present when your entry is prepared so that you can provide the correct answers to the questions and retain the confirmation page and your unique confirmation number.

Two Kenyan Men in US Charged with Sexually Assaulting a Mentally Challenged Woman

Published

on

Two Kenyan men in Minnesota face felony charges after police say they sexually assaulted a woman with mental and physical impairments at the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in March.

Francis Ndegwa Kamau, 39, of Spring Lake Park was arrested in Minneapolis and booked in the Scott County Jail on Aug. 8 in connection with third-degree felony criminal sexual conduct. Kamau’s arrest came three months after the county attorney filed charges against Kamau and Kenneth Wagacha Kibe, 37, of Burnsville.

According to Prior Lake Police and court records, the warrant for Kibe has not yet been served, and he has not been arrested.

Both men are charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct for sexual penetration of a person who “is mentally impaired, mentally incapacitated, or physically helpless.” Each charge carries with it a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, a fine of $30,000 or both.

The county’s criminal complaint states officers found multiple videos of the alleged assault and a text conversation about the victim on the men’s phones.

The woman has been diagnosed with “mild intellectual disabilities, unspecified congenital anomaly of musculoskeletal system (right hand), seizure disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and depression,” and lives at a group home for people with cognitive and physical disabilities, according to the warrants.

The warrants allege that on the afternoon of March 30, Kamau and Kibe approached the woman while she waited at the casino buffet. The three chatted for a while before casino surveillance video shows them entering a hotel room for more than an hour.

The woman told police that when the group entered the hotel room, both men tried to have sex with her several times even though she told them to stop. During a sexual assault exam at St. Francis Medical Center the woman told a nurse that Kamau had told her he wanted to “give [you] a baby.”

Both Kamau and Kibe were at the casino when police arrived on the scene. During Kibe’s interview with officers, he said he had recorded a portion of the assault without Kamau’s knowledge.

Both men told police that they noticed the woman had a limp but did not realize that she had any cognitive disabilities.

Officers found and photographed “blood or other bodily fluid” and a condom wrapper on the bed sheets of the room.

In documents filed Aug. 9, Kamau said he had hired an attorney to represent him, though no attorney was listed on his case file at press time. His first court appearance is set for Oct. 21.
