VIDEO: Judge Njoki Ndung’u says she was physically assaulted by her dad in Karen




Kenya’s Supreme Court judge Njoki Ndung’u has for the first time revealed how, despite being brought up in the upmarket neighbourhood of Karen, she, her siblings and their mother led a miserable life thanks to her drunken and abusive father.

Speaking at the Hilton, Nairobi, Njoki told a gathering of Kenyan women that her father was a drunkard who used to terrorize the family often.

“We watched as he beat up our mother,” she said, adding: “We often would spend the night in the cow shed, terrified.”

She said there was no difference between them – living in the leafy suburbs – and families who experience domestic violence in less privileged neighbourhoods like Kibera or Korogocho.

“Many times, we were all thrown out of the house,” she said.

In the no holds barred speech, the judge said the terrible experience led her into making a decision earlier in life that she would follow a career path that would address the matter.

“I witnessed domestic violence first hand and that is what I have always sought to change.”

The audience burst into laughter when she told of how dangerous it is for a woman to use “bottom power.”

A man can impregnate a woman every day and yet the latter can not get pregnant again at least for nine months after conception…so who should be on the pill?, she wondered aloud.

It is a man’s world out there but we shouldn’t stop making our presence felt, she advised.

She told of how she did a lot for women when she was an MP, and even prior to that, including having more women leaders recognised, spearheading the zero rating of sanitary pads, etc…when there was only one unisex toilet in the chamber…when she and fellow legislator Cecily Mbarire were the youngest MPs in the house and men would sexually harass them by gently scratching their palms with one finger whenever they shook their hands.

She said that in life, she is guided by three principles: Planning, Passion and Prayer.

“There is nothing possible without the Almighty God,” she said.

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.

Heart-rending photo of ailing Njambi Koikai after surgery moves Kenyans



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.

“My cardiothoracic surgeon here cannot believe all what had been to my chest and right lung area.
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.

We wish her a speedy and full recovery as soon as possible.
