Kilifi governor Amason Kingi has said that he is ready to sacrifice his blood if that is what it will take to realize secession of the coast region.

Speaking during the swearing-in ceremony of the county executive committee members on Thursday, Kingi said that the call for secession is unstoppable.

He added that he has dropped his plans to run for the presidency in 2022 to focus on the agenda of making the region independent.

The governor announced that the county will host a convention of leaders from the region to dialog the way forward on the plan.

“People will be maimed while others will be threatened but we as leaders must come together to fight for this cause,” he said. “Not everyone would want to see the region get justice. We will be prosecuted and some will be harassed but we must hold together to save our future generations.”

The second term governor, however, pointed that the national government has a window to stop the calls by implementing devolution as spelled out in the new Constitution.

“This government is not keen on implementing devolution as stipulated in the constitution. If you want to ruin your vehicle do not refuel it.”

“The national government is killing devolution by failing to release money to counties on time. This is the main reason we want to manage our own affairs as the coast region,” he added.

He said the conference will bring on board the clergy, elders, politicians, and the academia to chat the way forward on the matter.

Kilifi North MP Owen Baya said his secession motion will be tabled in Parliament once the August House resumes sittings.

“Whoever thought the motion was dead is wrong as it will be tabled immediately we resume sittings. We have been marginalised for a long time and this must come to an end.”

“The only way is to have the region secede and manage its affairs,” Baya said.

Rabai MP William Kamoti urged the leaders to unify and come up with a strong coastal party even as they push for secession.

The former Citizen TV, who has been keeping her relationship under wraps, is yet to reveal the identity of the man who has swept her off her feet in case there’s any.

In a recent interview, she said that she wasn’t romantically involved with Eric and they were just co-parenting.

‘I KEEP TELLING HIM [Eric] WE KINDA MESSED UP, CROSSING THE FRIENDSHIP LINE. WE WERE VERY GOOD FRIENDS FROM THE BEGINNING AND I DON’T KNOW WHY WE THOUGHT, THIS COULD WORK BUT THEN IF WE WERE ABLE TO COLLECT OURSELVES AGAIN AND BECOME FRIENDS, I DON’T THINK I WOULD EVER CROSS THAT LINE.’

Allan Aaron, theamed US-based Kenyan Akorino gospel singer, has reportedly remarried after “abandoning his first wife and kids.”

Through a Facebook post, Aaron revealed he got married on January 2nd.

He however but did not reveal the identity of his new spouse or share her photos.

Recently, his ex wife Annie Shiku finally opened up about how he allegedly dumped her and their children after he left for the US.

She said Aaron cut communication with her barely three months after he landed in Boston.

The ‘Kiriro’ hitmaker was previously married to Ann Shiko and the two were blessed with four children, but is alleged that he abandoned his family a few months after he moved to the US to perform and minister the word of God.

“He started acting funny. He would not pick up my calls and whenever he did, he had very unkind words for me. After a while, there was no communication as he had blocked me,” she said.

She said he also stopped sending money, resulting in her struggling to raise school fees for their kids, rent, food, and other basic needs.

A year later, Aaron returned to the country without her knowledge and the two accidentally met at a funeral at Lang’ata Cemetery. After the burial, Aaron allegedly went to his parent’s home in Elburgon, Nakuru County.

“Together with my children, we waited and waited. He didn’t come. We saw him after two weeks when he came to pick up his belongings. He took his clothes and even the TV that our kids used to watch,” she recalled.

Shiko said her attempts to know what transpired were futile as Aaron would not listen to her even when church elders tried to intervene.

“I tried to beg him for forgiveness for things I could have done without knowing I was hurting him but all was in vain. Up to date, I don’t know the reason he left,” she said.

Shiko, who is also a musician, currently sells cars at a showroom along Kiambu Road.

She has revealed that  she is ready to remarry “if God sends me a suitor.”

Efforts to get a comment from Aaron proved futile with his phone going unanswered.

‘I don’t want to bring another baby to the world,’ Senator’s wife cries

Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura’s wife Nelius Mukami says the loss of two children from her triplets changed her perspective of life.

Speaking to Massawe Japanni on Radio Jambo, Nelius, who doubles up as a writer and an entrepreneur, says she is still afraid to become pregnant again.

“I watched my children for three months in ICU and then two died, leaving me a broken person. That experience changed me as a mum and it took away my innocence of thinking that things will happen as you wish just because you are doing what you are supposed to do.”

Nelius added that to date she looks at a pregnant woman who ends up giving birth normally and blames her body.

“I ask myself, what did I do wrong? I blame my body for failing me since as a woman, you are supposed to carry a pregnancy and give birth but now, you see mine did not succeed.”

She says she is afraid to go through the experience again.

“I watched my baby suffer so much and I do not want to bring another baby to the world and suffer the same way my two babies suffered in hospital.”

Baby Njiru

Nelius’ son is four years old, and she says he is fine, apart from some delayed speech, which the doctor says is nothing to worry about.

“I tell people not to compare children as they are all different. I become very harsh to some people who try to compare my son since it’s me who understands his journey,” she said.

“Some are very mean. Some even ask me if we do not give him food. I mean, he was 1kg at birth and so he is doing so well now. People should stop commenting on other people’s babies.”

Baby Njiru

Although there is fear, Nelius says there is the confidence that she will be more prepared than that time.

Speaking about grief, Nelius said it is the last compassion you can give someone.

“I will grieve them for the rest of my life without pretending they were not there. I will not refuse to mention them and I celebrate them every day.”
