VIDEO: Why Raila’s swearing-in has been called off

Published

on

Some  National Super Alliance (NASA)  supporters are labeling opposition leader Raila Odinga a coward – once again. This after the coalition Sunday postponed the much anticipated controversial swearing-in of its leader Raila Odinga as the ‘people’s president’.

The statement was read by Nasa co-principal Musalia Mudavadi at the Okoa Kenya offices in Nairobi.

Mr Mudavadi was with co-principal Moses Wetang’ula, Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana and the committee that was organising the swearing-in.

The coalition said it consulted at the national and international level before it made the decision to postpone the swearing-in.

The statement also apologised for disappointing Kenyans, who were “eagerly waiting for this occasion”.

This is not the first time that Odinga is calling off his swearing in.

Soon after the news conference announcing the posteponement, the social media went wild. While some NASA supporters said they would support any decision their leader would make, many were clearly disappointed.

Raila is worth over Sh200 billion, claims Miguna Miguna

Published

on

By JUDITH GICOBI

Miguna Miguna, deported Kenyan-Canadian lawyer, does not agree with ODM leader Raila Odinga’s claim of his family net worth.

The ODM leader in an interview with NTV on Sunday revealed that the Odinga family’s worth is Sh 2billion, which mainly comes from property and company shares. 

“People say I’m very rich. I am not rich. I am just about Sh2 billion which we own collectively as the Odinga family,” Raila noted.

But Miguna disputes this. In a Twitter post on Monday said that Raila is worth more than the Sh2 billion. He cites Raila’s KSh1.5 billion palatial home in Riat Hills in Kisumu. 

He further reveals that Odinga has invested in the hospitality industry, where he owns three hotels in Kisumu, valued at over Sh10 billion.

“He has more than Sh200 Billion. His Riat Palace alone is worth more than Sh1.5B. The 3 hotels in Kisumu are worth more than Sh10B, etc,” wrote Miguna, who served as Raila’s senior advisor from 2009 to 2011.

On Sunday, Odinga revealed his Karen home is worth Sh300 million and bashed claims that the family his family benefited from political influence and advantage to amass massive wealth.

“Our father Odinga died a poor man. There is nothing we inherited from him as his children. It must be remembered that throughout his life that he was in government for only two and a half years,” Raila said.

Miguna Miguna and Raila clashed after Miguna was deported to Canada in early 2018.

Akothee comes to the rescue of a needy student

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Esther Akoth, alias Akothee, a popular Kenyan singer, has assisted a needy mother to pay for her son’s school fees. 

The amount paid by the award-winning singer is still unclear. She shared a video of a jubilant mother getting a bank slip for the school fees.

The woman is Suzzane Wanjiru. She had tried to approach the singer previously at her gate with a fee structure of Sh20,268 for the first term, Sh12,160 and Sh8,107 for the second and third term, respectively.

The son had joined Sokoke Boys High School. Suzzane was hesitant to go to Akothee at first, but after much debating, she decided to follow her insists and went to the singer’s gate. 

“Lakini tulipoendelea kuongea ukasikia kilio changu,” Suzzane told Akothee. “Ninashukuru sana.” 

Akothee thanked her fans for contributing to the Akothee Foundation, which in turn helps enroll children in school.

Rescued osprey dies under KWS care

Published

on

The rescued migratory osprey bird  that flew a distance of 4,317 miles to land in Usalu Village in Siaya County has died.

In a statement, the Kenya Wildlife Service announced the death of the bird, days after breaking the internet following its rescue on January 20, this year.

“We regret to announce the death of the rescued migratory Osprey bird despite all efforts to rehabilitate and eventually release it back into the wild. The four-year-old bird of prey died at the weekend while under the care of Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) veterinarians and a KWS-licensed Raptor Rehabilitation Centre in Karen, Nairobi,” KWS said in a statement.

The four-year-old migratory bird, according to the post-mortem examination report conducted by veterinary teams, died of long term starvation which precipitated systemic organs failure.

The raptor bird was rescued last week in Siaya by a member of the community, Mr Walter Oloo, who reported the sighting to the KWS Siaya County office on January 20.

The bird was then taken to the KWS Veterinary Department in Nairobi and later transferred to the Raptor Rehabilitation Centre.

“By the time the bird was delivered to the city, it had been severely dehydrated, weak and emaciated from the long flight and minor injuries while trapped by the fishing net. It weighed 950g against the normal range of 1.3-1.8kg weight of an adult osprey,” KWS noted.

Plans by the KWS was that the bird, once in good health, was to be released at the exact site where it was rescued in the Lake Victoria catchment so that the bird does not lose its bearings on the return epic flight Northwards in early March.

The bird’s origin had been established from a referring ring on its leg whose details show that it was ringed in a museum in Finland.According to Birdlife International, one in five of all the world’s bird species migrate.

And while every migration is an epic and often perilous feat of endurance.Different types of birds take routes of widely varying lengths and while some round-trip migrations can be as long as 44,000 miles, equivalent to almost two round-the-world trips, others are much shorter.

National Geographic details that some birds even migrate on foot and cover thousands of miles moving across continents.

The risky migration journey often sees the migratory birds taking direct yet dangerous routes that expose them to storms, predators, as well as tough navigation conditions.

“Migrations that cut across deserts or open water are especially risky”, National Geographic notes.In such a perilous journey, some birds get caught up in storms killing thousands and forcing an entire sky full of them to stop at the first land they encounter.“Birdwatchers revel in these events (known as fallouts).

Colourful warblers, orioles, and tanagers decorate every bush and provide eye-level views as they forage ravenously to recover from the difficult flight,” it notes.Over the years, the exciting phenomenon of migratory birds that transverse continents have been disrupted by increasing hazards such as habitat loss, overuse of pesticides, hunting and trapping of birds in their stop-over grounds.

Organisations such as Nature Kenya and Birdlife International have also highlighted fatal collisions with buildings and radio towers as a challenge to migratory birds that fly at night.According to KWS Paul Udoto, the ringing of birds is usually done for conservation purposes and to know the movements and habitats of migratory birds.

The exercise is also aimed at boosting conservation of habitats where the birds spent most of their times after travelling for miles across the continent at certain times.“Migratory birds travel miles of kilometres across the continents every year and ringing exercises are usually conducted to trace migratory patterns of these birds and the places they spent most of their times at particular season for conservation purposes. Once established where these birds prefer, awareness for purposes of conservation is usually boosted in such areas,” Mr Udoto said.Kenya, he added, is a signatory to the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS), whose conference of parties is to be held next month in India and one of the key mandates is to ensure the conservation of migratory bird species.

Bird-ringing in Kenya is often done at Ngulia in Tsavo every other year in October and November, during which migratory birds from Europe are identified.  There are seven documented seven catchment areas of migratory birds among them Lake Nakuru, Naivasha, Bogoria, Elementaita and Lake Victoria.
