VIDEO: Trump gives a shout out to Kenya, or did he?




United States President Donald Trump has given what appears to be a shout out to Kenya and twitter is going wild. On a closer look, it really was not a shout out per se.

While defending a statement he made after a woman was killed on August 12, when a car ploughed into anti-racism protesters who were confronting white supremacists in the Virginia college town, Trump declared that he loves all the people…all the American people.

“I didn’t say I love you because you are from Japan, China, Kenya, scotland or Sweden….I love all the people of our country,”

“My speech said I love all the people of our country. I did not say I love you because you are black; or I love you because you are white; or I love you because you are from Japan; or you are from China; or you are from Kenya; or Scotland; or Sweden. I love all the people of our country,” President Donald Trump said Tuesday night during a 77 minute speech at the Phoenix Convention Center in Arizona as protesters gathered outside.

Mr Trump had bee criticised for waiting two days to explicitly condemn the white supremacists — described as “Nazis” by Virginia’s Governor — behind the rally.

On twitter Wednesday, opinions were divided. @Mkenya Muguruki said: A good sign that he is thinking about us in the same breath with Japan. Let’s pop our champagne.

Tito Njau wrote on Instagram: Was that a shout out or a shout in? He actually means he doesn’t like us. Watch closely.

Jonnah Anselimo says on Facebook: Asante Trump kwa kutukumbuka. Ngota tano!

Trump had not mentioned Kenya since he met with president Kenyatta in Italy at the G7 summit in Italy. Even after IEBC declared president Uhuru Kenyatta the winner of the August 8th election, it was a Whie House official who released a statement and not Trump himself.

However, on March 7th this year, Trump had a brief phone conversation with the Kenyan leader.

Miguna Miguna, Dallas-Based Promoter Clash over ‘Stolen’ $20,000 Raised During His US Tour



National Resistance Movement self-declared general Miguna Miguna is accusing a group of Kenyan promoters based in Dallas, Texas of stealing $20,000  from him during his tour to popularize NRM in the US city.

Miguna toured Dallas on March 10th, where he held meetings with Kenyan diaspora community and wooed them to support his NRM agenda.

His visit was organized by a Kenyan promoter, Steve Aseno, who among others; booked the meeting hall and arranged for Miguna’s flight.

The former Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant delivered a speech to his followers in Dallas, which was followed by a fundraiser to raise cash to help him foot legal bills and fix the damaged doors, which were broken by police during his arrest at his Runda home.

Miguna now claims that Aseno swindled $20,000 raised from the Dallas meeting. He said the Kenyan promoter declined to give him the whole amount donated during the fund drive.

Aseno has denied the claims, stating that he even suffered a loss of more than $1,000 from the event.

The promoter said the event flopped after Miguna launched attacks on National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga over his unity pact with President Kenyatta, days before coming to Dallas.

Aseno said that several of Odinga’s supporters who had confirmed their attendance pulled out after Miguna’s attack on Odinga. Only 114 guests attended. Guests were charged $20 to enter the hall, $10 to take a photo with Miguna and $50 for an unframed photo of Raila.

“Because of Miguna running his mouth, he did not sell a single portrait and the donations became very few to the extent that most supplied had to take a cut for the sake of Miguna,” Aseno stated.

Miguna received $1,195 from the fundraiser and Sh$150 from the photos. Aseno has challenged Miguna to “use logic and explain where the figure of $20,000 came from.”
