VIDEO: Young Kenyan Mukurino who works for World Bank and is a Professor in US

Published

on

He is a proud Mukurino who works in Washington DC and holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and History from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, a master’s degree in History from Tarleton State University and a PhD in Public Administration and Management (Public Finance and Public Management from the University of North Texas.)

Allow us to introduce to you one of the most impressive young Kenyan professionals doing Kenya proud. He goes by the name David Wachira but his father insists he is Dr. Wachira.

The first thing you will notice about Mr Wachira is his Akorino turban. In fact, when Julie Gichuru first met him weeks ago in Washington DC, she asked for a picture with him because she had never seen a “Man of the Cloth” (Akorino) outside Kenya.

But his religion aside, David Wachira has an impressive profile and works in one of the world’s most prestigious institutions, The World Bank.

He handles operations, analytic and advisory work in the roles he has been assigned to in the global institution.

He started his work at World Bank as a Young Professional before he moved on to his role as a public sector specialist in the Governance Global Practice sector which he has been working on since September 2013.

Mr Wachira is also a part-time lecturer having taught public policy in the Political Science department at Southern Methodist University (SMU). He has also served as a teaching fellow in University of North Texas and as an assistant professor of History and Economics at Wiley College.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and History from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, a master’s degree in History from Tarleton State University and a PhD in Public Administration and Management (Public Finance and Public Management from the University of North Texas.)

Wachira’s CV is pretty impressive but so are other aspects of his life. His accent, for example, wowed Kenyans when Julie Gichuru shared the clip below on Instagram.


Mr Wachira is also without a doubt Kenya’s most stylish ‘wagithomo’ and cleans up nice in perfectly-tailored suits and stylish shoes.

When he is not working, Wachira likes to play golf, work on a ranch in Texas and drink his tea from an enamel cup because it reminds him of “how far we have come and how far God has brought us.”

Check out some of his pics.

Published

An post meeting photo of Kenyan exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna with a friend in Canada has left his online followers asking government to allow him back.

Miguna had a joint photo with one Jackson Igbinosun at the Black Gold Think Tank but it was his apparent unkempt beard and now slender body that many netizens noticed.

According to the online community, the firebrand politician looked weary, fatigued and much older, joking that he was aging before he could liberate them from “despotic jaws”.

“You are getting older each day general before you liberate us from the despots. We still believe, hope and trust in you,” joked Olleta Dennis.

Some even chided him that he was no longer the self-declared general they knew two years ago on the night of his deportation when government authorities allegedly sedated him.

Miguna was kicked out of the country in 2018 after his involvement in the infamous swearing in of the ODM party boss Raila Odinga as the ‘people’s president’.

He made several futile attempts to fly back home in January 2020, but the government issued a red alert to block his return.

After his last deportation on March 28, 2018, he continued to live in his adopted country Canada.

What killed popular televangelist Morris Cerullo

Published

on

One of the most celebrated televangelists Morris Cerullo has died.

The evangelist has been battling pneumonia over the past few days.

On July 9, a message posted on his Facebook page revealed that not all was well and the end was nigh for the preacher.

“Urgent Prayer Request: Dear Friends, we would appreciate your immediate prayers for Dr Cerullo who is being treated for pneumonia at the hospital. Please also pray for Theresa who has been working around the clock to assist in his care. She needs your prayers too for extra strength at this time. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for Morris and Theresa!” read the post which attracted over 32,000 reactions, 14,000 comments and 3,500 shares.

Born 88 years ago in Passaic, New Jersey, US, Cerullo grew to become one of the most listened to and watched preachers of all time, perhaps in the league of renowned televangelists like Billy Graham.Young Cerullo grew up in orphanages after his parents died in a road crash. Having been born into a Jewish-Italian family, he converted to Christianity at the age of 14, a move which is said to have not gone well with the owners of the Orthodox Jewish orphanage.

He ran away and started preaching at the age of 16. He would later conduct several open-air crusades and ministry meetings across the world. His ministry was premised on healing and miracles. At the age of 59, he bought the assets of the bankrupt ministry of Jim Bakker.

An astute businessman, Cerullo invested in media and bought a cable news network called PTL which he later renamed INSP-The Inspiration Network of which one of his sons would become CEO and later chairman. The evangelist got married to Theresa in 1951 and were blessed with three children, David, Susan and Mark.

His ministry went beyond the US and to various continents in the world including Africa. He came to Kenya in August 2017 and paid a courtesy call to President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi. He also visited Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia during that tour.

But Cerullo has had his own fair share of controversy. At one point he was accused of tax evasion in California but the charges were dropped. In another incident, the preacher was accused of having underrepresented his income between 1998 and 2000 but on August 8, 2007, a court in California ordered the indictment to be dropped. In 2001, a group calling itself UK Apologetics took on the preacher accusing him of what they called ‘Massive Distortions’, questioning his mode of preaching.

The group charged: “Cerullo, who is widely-known to be fabulously wealthy, has claimed many miracles but many observers strongly question the validity of some of these claimed ‘miracles,’ indeed, a few of these are genuinely tragic. One such case is the case of the little girl, riddled with cancer, who is informed by Cerrullo that she is “healed.”

Tragically this poor little girl was dead within weeks.”In 1991, he was accused for airing miracles he claimed to have performed, leading to the suspension of the license of a TV station or broadcasting a programme dubbed Victory with Moris Cerullo, until the station agreed to place a disclaimer stating, “Morris Cerullo World Evangelism cannot substantiate the claims made by participants featured in this programme.”

His death was yesterday received with an outpouring of grief on social media. John King’oo, a Nairobi resident, wrote on Facebook: Rest in power Dr Morris Cerullo. Immediately after high school, I attended your meetings in Nairobi.

Chaos as armed goons storm Ford Kenya party headquarters

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Chaos ensued at Ford Kenya party headquarters in Nairobi on Sunday, July 12 after heavily armed goons stormed the offices a around 10am.

Party officials who were within the premises were forced to run for their safety after the goons started throwing stones as others were slowly approaching the premises while carrying scary batons.

The goons were ferried in motorbikes to the office headquarters but were denied access as the gates were closed and resorted to throwing stones at the offices.

They left behind a trail of destruction after they heard police were called on them.

Although the intention of the attack remains unknown, the Ford Kenya party has been in the news headlines with leaders fighting over party positions.

The beef between party members started when a group of party officials led by Secretary-General Eseli Simuyu removed Bungoma senator Moses Wetang’ula from party leader position on May 31.

The officials then appointed Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi as the interim party boss.

However, the move sparked a heated reaction from Wetang’ula’s team who came out accusing Eseli and Wamunyinyi of being used by other parties to stage a coup in Ford Kenya party.

The changes were later communicated to the Political Parties Registrar Anne Nderitu who notified the public and asked those opposed to it to come forward.

Wetang’ula’s team launched a case against the changes and Nderitu threw out the changes over anomalies that were not in accordance to the party Constitution.

Eseli and Wamunyinyi were late ejected from their leadership positions but the changes would not be affected.

In a preliminary ruling, Nderitu said the Parliamentary Group meeting and the National Executive Council(NEC) that suspended the duo was not properly convened and lacked a quorum.
