BREAKING NEWS: History made as Kenyan presidential election is nullified

Published

on

The Supreme Court has nullified the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

A seven-judge bench, by majority decision, on Friday found that the electoral commission failed to conduct the polls according to the Constitution and Elections Act.

EVIDENCE

“Elections is not an event but an process. After considering the totality of the entire evidence, we are satisfied that the elections were not conducted in accordance to the dictates of the Constitution and the applicable principles,” Chief justice David Maraga said.

“That President Uhuru Kenyatta was not validly elected on August 8.”.

Judges Ojwang and Njoki Ndung’u dissented while judge Mohammed Ibrahim, who fell ill on the second day of the case hearing, did not take part in the decision because he is still in hospital.

They ordered the IEBC to conduct a fresh presidential election within strict confines of the law within 60 days.

Lawyers who represented President Kenyatta and the IEBC protested the judgment and sought explanations and clarifications from the judges.

Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi, for Mr Kenyatta, faulted the court, saying it had made a political decision because no one is disputing that the voter made his decision.

RIGGING

According to him, Lady Justice Ndung’u upheld the wishes of Kenyans.

But Justice Maraga said, in due time, they would be able to demonstrate why they reached their decision.

The decision has is a big win for National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka, who accused the IEBC of rigging the election in favour of Mr Kenyatta.

The two rejected the results even before they were announced on August 10, accusing the commission of imposing “computer-generated leaders” on Kenyans.

The quashing of Mr Kenyatta’s victory is particularly important to Mr Odinga because it has granted his political career a lifeline.

Aged 72, Mr Odinga had promised his opposition co-principals that it was the last time he was running for State House after previous three barren attempts.

Man beats up Bungoma musician for supporting DP Ruto

Published

Police in Webuye have launched a manhunt for a handshake supporter who reportedly assaulted a musician for backing Deputy President William Ruto.

Bungoma East police boss Valarian Obore said police are looking for Mr Bernard Wakamala, alias Jaramogi, for clobbering Mr David Sakari, who usually performs in Webuye Juakali band troupe led by Kimilili MCA David Barasa.

The short statured performer is remembered for having been awarded a customised vehicle for the disabled by Dr Ruto in 2016.

Mr Obore said Mr Sakari was assaulted at Satellite Hotel in Webuye town on Friday night after praising the DP.

“He took a beer bottle and hit me on the head twice. I bled profusely before friends took me to Webuye Sub County Hospital, where I was treated and discharged,” said Mr Sakari.

Bungoma Musicians Association Chairman Kasembeli Watila condemned the incident and called on the police to speed up investigations and arrest the suspect.

Daughter’s comment to dad accidentally exposes mum’s affair with neighbor

Published

on

A husband has said an everyday conversation with his young daughter exposed his wife’s cheating and shattered their 14-year marriage. Steven (not his real name) returned home one day and listened as his daughter as told him about her day, when one detail of her story jumped out. The girl mentioned that her mum had been at the neighbour’s house, leading to her dad asking more about what had happened.

She recounted that when she arrived home from school she found her mum was not there, but instead the neighbour popped his head round his front door and told her that her mum would “be right out”. Alarm bells started ringing for Steven, who said he asked his wife why she had been with their neighbour the following day, as reported by Kidspot.

At first she passed it off as nothing and came up with a quick excuse, but her husband said due to the length of time they had been together, he knew exactly how she acted when she was lying. She eventually broke down and admitted that they had kissed and touched, but that it “felt wrong” so she stopped it. “I know how she lies to everybody, and how good she is at it,” said Steven. “So I believe that it went further than the kissing.”

He says he kicked her out of the house but later agreed to marriage counseling and allowing her to move back in, which he said he did “more for the kids”. But he became even more suspicious when she later revealed the pair had been speaking for several weeks before they met up, as an innocent text message led to exchanging photos and flirty texts. His wife maintained that it hadn’t gone further than a kiss, with Steven adding: “She said that it was just wrong and stopped immediately.

“She said that when it was texting it wasn’t real and when it got down to it in real life she felt like she was going to vomit. But I just don’t see two adults stopping given the opportunity to do what they had been talking about for three weeks. I’m literally going crazy because I do love her but it’s starting to feel like love you have for a longtime friend and not a love you feel for your wife.”

After asking for advice on Reddit, one said: “I think at this point you have to assume she did cheat on you and then ask yourself whether you can forgive her. Figure out what it will take for you to be able to stay with your wife and not be thinking about what happened in ways that interferes with you and your family’s wellbeing. It will take time.”

Another wrote: “Counselling is a good first start. She is going to have to make major reparations to repair the relationship. She might not be up to the task. Good luck.”

You can easily migrate to and work in the US if you have these extraordinary abilities

Published

on

US Citizenship and Immigration Services has published a new section in the USCIS Policy Manual relating to the O nonimmigrant classifications. O-1 nonimmigrant status is available for aliens of “extraordinary ability” in the sciences, arts, business, education, and athletics, and aliens with a record of “extraordinary achievement” in the motion picture or television industry, who are coming to the United States temporarily to work in their area of ability or achievement. O-2 nonimmigrant status is available for essential support personnel coming solely to assist an O-1 artist or athlete.

The new section expands guidance on evaluating O-1 eligibility, including how officers determine if the petitioner has satisfied the evidentiary criteria and established that the beneficiary has extraordinary ability or extraordinary achievement, as applicable. It also clarifies when a petitioner may rely upon “comparable evidence” to meet the requirements for certain O-1 beneficiaries.

USCIS is also incorporating existing guidance relating to certain nonimmigrant athletes, coaches and entertainers (otherwise known as the P-1, P-2, and P-3 nonimmigrant classifications), and their essential support personnel into the Policy Manual.

For more information, see the USCIS Policy Manual.
