Melania Trump’s tweet about MLK causes online stir

Published

BY BMJ MURIITHI

US first lady Melania Trump on Monday sent out a tweet which did not go down well with many.

She used her husband’s preferred medium of communication (Twitter) to “acknowledge Martin Luther King Jr.’s important work.”

While the tweet may have been in good faith,  many Twitter users just weren’t having it.

“Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. & his service to this great country,” she wrote. “I am honored to be First Lady of a nation that continually strives for equality & justice for all.

One person responded: “You might want to talk to your husband about equality and justice for all.”

Another asked: “Have you met your husband lately???”

Someone also tweeted: “Good luck with ‘striving’ – your husband is doing an excellent job of setting back the fight for equality by decades.”

This comes hot on the heels of controversial remarks reportedly made by Mr Trump in which he is said to have made very derogatory remarks about immigrants from Haiti and some African nations.

Some lawmakers who were attending a meeting with Trump at the White House have maintained that Trump referred to those countries as Shi*holes.

He however has denied ever using the words and added that he is not a racist as he has been labeled by many in the wake of the latest controversy.

VIDEO: Uhuru loses temper and deals with CS Macharia

Published

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

In a video dating back to 2018, Chinese contractor and Transport CS James Wainaina Macharia seem to have crossed the president’s path.

President Uhuru Kenyatta made a surprise visit to a Chinese construction site where he found the construction work had stalled and started to enquire why.

He also enquired on how they had been allocated funds and listened as the CS and the Chinese contractor each gave a different figure, much to the Presidents dismay.

The CS tried to interject the President to save face for the Chinese but a seemingly infuriated Uhuru could hear none of it.

In defense, the officials from the Chinese company indicated that there was shortage of funding alleging that the project would be fast tracked had they received enough monies.

A 22 year-old-man who zipped up his one year-old daughter in a bag and attempted to smuggle her out of Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) has been charged.

Boniface Murage Wangechi was arrested by security guards as he attempted to avoid paying a bill of Sh56, 937.

The young girl was admitted at the facility on January 26 and discharged February 11, 2019.

While appearing before Nairobi Milimani Law Courts resident magistrate Ms Caroline Muthoni Nzibe, the man admitted to the charge of attempting to commit a felony.

“It is true. Yes I attempted to go away with my daughter,” he told the court.

“I was fearing that my daughter and my wife, would be detained at KNH for long since I could not raise the hospital bill of Sh56, 937,” he added.
