Raila dares those against his swearing in to arrest him

By ALLAN TAWAI

The National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga has dared those against his swearing in to arrest him, dismissed claims that he is afraid of being sworn-in as president.

Mr. Odinga, accompanied by his deputy Kalonzo Musyoka, assured their supporters that the January 30 ceremony will proceed as planned.

“On January 30, I will be sworn in and this time it’s a real deal and anyone one saying its treason let him come and arrest us.” Said Raila.

Attorney General Githu Muigai had earlier told the Opposition leaders that the oath amounts to treason since President Uhuru Kenyatta has assumed office.

“The event is not only about carrying the Bible and saying ‘I swear’, we want to make it real,” Raila said during a rally in Kakamega on Sunday.

“We want this swearing-in process to be inclusive of all Kenyans. That’s why we are discussing before we go ahead.”

NASA principal Raila Odinga lifts the Bible presented to him as a birthday gift from Western leaders in Kakamega, Sunday, January 7, 2018.

Raila and other leaders who spoke at the event took a swipe at the Jubilee government for harassing NASA supporters during and after the presidential elections.

He alleged that the government has murdered over 300 people following the dispute over the August 8 election.

The Opposition chief called for the constitutional reforms on sections of the 2010 Constitution that have ‘grey areas’.

NASA has been pushing for electoral justice on grounds the October 26 vote, which they abandoned, did not reflect the will of Kenyans.

Raila said the repeat election was not legitimate hence their withdrawal from the contest, adding that the Wafula Chebukati-led IEBC was being controlled by Jubilee.

He met with leaders from the Western region at Kakamega Golf Hotel before holding rallies around the town to drum up support for his swearing-in fete.

Mr. Musyoka, who returned to the country recently after a long stay in Germany attending to his sick wife, said he is still strong in the coalition.

“This serious business that we are involved in and we won’t give up easily,” Kalonzo said.

He took swipe at the foreign governments that rubber-stamped the disputed election.

“We have a meaningless democracy and we tell foreign governments to respect our decision,” the Wiper leader added.

The leaders called upon their supporters to remain calm and avoid any violence.

“We won’t destroy our nation. Let them be the one to take the blame. What we need is self-purification,” Kalonzo said.

The leaders resolved that the Western region will not recognise the Uhuru Kenyatta presidency.

Raila was accompanied by co-principals Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Moses Wetang’ula (Ford-K), governors, a host MPs, and Senators.

Mudavadi said Kenyans were bitter because their right to vote democratically was stolen.

“Our movement wants to make sure that the future elections will be fair and free of manipulation,” he said.

For his part, Wetangula said they want to make the country a better place under Raila’s leadership.

“We won the August 8 election but the results were manipulated to favour Jubilee Party,” Wetangula said, “We can’t keep on seeing a nation that stands on a lie in each of the government policy.”

Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala said all elected leaders under NASA coalition will sign an affidavit to recognize Raila as Kenya’s president.

“Any MP who won’t sign the affidavit will be seen as a traitor and a Jubilee mole,” Malala said.

NASA coalition’s strategist David Ndii said the current regime forced its way into office through electoral prejudice.

Published

In his response, Gachoka accused Ahmednasir of aiding individuals caught in corruption scandals, as he went ahead to mentioned some of the people the lawyer has represented in corruption related cases before.

“Senior Cousel you aide & abet corruption actors; Ruto fanatics call you a ‘great mind’ YET you feature in every corruption case. AA @ahmednasirlaw you represented Waiguru, Waluke, Deepak Kamani of Angloleasing & Weston – yet you can dare call me ‘idle talk’. A corruption enabler!” tweeted Gachoka.

Tony Gachoka’s words came after Ahmednasir Abdullahi asked him to play his part in nation building by starting a small business and creating jobs for young people, instead being idle.

“Tony…play your part in BUILDING the Nation. Start some BUSINESS, Create JOBS FOR THE YOUTH…and stop this little idle talk…KENYA is great country… HELP JUBILEE make Kenya GREAT…” said SC Ahmednasir.

His words were in response to Mr. Gachoka’s words which claimed that Deputy President William Ruto is no longer a billionaire.

Corazon Kwamboka on how she beat disease to conceive

Published

on

Corazon Kwamboka is one of the most famous socialites on social media.

The law graduate, however, is not known for her legal work. Her fame arises not only from the scintillating photos she posts on her social media pages showing places she has travelled, but also from the way she presents her body in a way that leaves little to imagination.

This week, she was one of the trending topics on social media after revealing that she is pregnant after several unsuccessful attempts.

She posted to her 636,000 Instagram followers how endometriosis, which she was diagnosed with last year, had dimmed her hopes of ever becoming pregnant.The beauty gushed about how she can’t wait to hold her baby, showing off her baby bump.

In the post addressed to her unborn child, she wrote: “If someone told me January last year that I’d be feeling you kick deep in my belly at the sound of your father’s voice, I’d most definitely think they were deranged! Endometriosis had crippled my dreams of birthing a child. But here we are; a pleasant and welcome surprise. I can’t wait to meet you, hold you and teach you everything I know.”

Endometriosis is a disease where womb tissue grows else-where in a woman’s body, such as the fallopian tubes, ovaries, around the pelvis and sometimes the lungs, causing extreme pain and sometimes infertility.

Gynaecologist Wanjiku Ndung’u told the Nation recently that if the multiplying cells grow elsewhere apart from the uterus, they cause infl ammation. It be-comes painful for the woman during periods because menses have a restrained fl ow and thus they form cysts that cause fric-tion and hence the pain.The cause of endometriosis is not known, according to Dr Joachim Osur, a sexual medicine expert.

“There are many theories. This also means that the treatment is very difficult because eff orts to suppress its symptoms with drugs also interfere with natural processes of the uterus,” he wrote in the Daily Nation re-cently.

Corazon is rumoured to be dating a popular fi tness enthusiast, Mr Frankie Kiarie.

Before allegedly hooking up with Corazon, Frankie and YouTuber Maureen Waititu enjoyed a five-year relationship that saw them bear two boys. The couple even came up with a thriving YouTube channel ‘Alphabeta’ that saw fans refer to them as the ‘You-Tuber couple’.

Frankie, speaking on their break-up, said that they had irreconcilable differences that made them separate.

“The point of this is to let you know that people say some things to be funny or relevant on Twitter or Instagram, but someone’s day-to-day life is being affected. We are not in a good place yet. I have known Maureen for six years and loved her for every one of those years. That kind of love doesn’t fade. Sometimes things don’t happen the way you expect them to. Our main focus now is the kids and creating a healthy environment for them,” Frankie said.

The two are rumoured to have been keeping the pregnancy a secret for months now, but sources say the lawyer is in her second trimester. In her post, Corazon said she was glad that she chose a man whom she is sure will be a good father to her unborn child because she had seen him raise his other children.

“To the baby’s father; I couldn’t have chosen a better person to do this with. I see the good in you and how you raise your own and I know my child will be loved eternally,” she wrote.Endometriosis affects more than 170 million women across the globe. The most common symptoms are pain and menstrual irregularities.

Effective treatments, such as hormones and excision surgery, are avail-able. Surgically removed cysts typically look like balls of fl esh.

Corazon had earlier revealed that she intends to be a mother in 2020, having struggled with ovarian cysts, which was successfully removed sometime last year through surgery.Corazon, who was admitted to the Bar in 2016, said that her status as a socialite has been a major hindrance to her law practice.

“It made me not practise law. I feel that at some point, I was being misjudged in a way so I pulled back from the law. I didn’t even want to go look for a job be-cause I was scared ‘how will they even give me the job?’ and also it affected a lot of my relationships since I became Corazon Kwamboka the socialite,” she said in an earlier interview.Four years ago, a man claim-ing to be Corazon’s father accused her of breaking their family while urging her to focus on her law career.“My very bright girl should stop this socialite thing and practise law.

She can be an amazing lawyer. I also realise she is over 18 and can’t make career choices for her. I pray for her every day,” said the man, Mr Osmond Sambu Okero.

Police questioned on bodies found in car at their station

Published

on

A post-mortem examination of the bodies of two children discovered in a wrecked car parked at the Athi River Police station on Wednesday evening is set to be done tomorrow at the Chiromo Funeral Home.

The examination is part of efforts by detectives to piece together the last moments of best friends Alvina Mutheu and Henry Jacktone, whose murders have shocked the country.Alvina, 3, and Jacktone, 4, went missing on June 11, and in a bizarre twist of events their bodies were discovered at the very place their parents reported their disappearance, raising questions on who could have snuck their bodies into a police station, and why.Some of the answers the post-mortem exam could provide include Alvina and Jacktone’s cause and date of death, and whether there was any form of struggle.

Their bodies were decomposed by the time they were discovered on the floor of a car parked at a yard inside Athi River Police Station.

The speed of decomposition, how-ever, varies depending on the environment, and the heat inside a parked car can make a body decompose faster.

“We only found skeletons and it was not easy to tell them apart,” Clifton Odhiambo, who is Jacktone’s father, told the Sunday Nation.

Preliminary investigations show that the Toyota Belta, registration number KCT 510X, in which the two bodies were found was not broken into.

Keys belonging to impounded cars are usually kept inside a safe under the responsibility of officers on duty.

The keys can only be released if the impounded car has been officially released and a note issued to whoever has come to claim the vehicle. It is puzzling how someone accessed a car parked inside a police station, which is a security installation, put the bodies of two children inside a car, and left without anyone noticing.

Detectives have already questioned a number of officers from the station. It is said that a man claiming to be the owner of the car discovered the bodies when he went to collect it on Wednesday.

The car, which is now a scene of crime, has been parked at the station since March 5, when it was involved in a road accident.

Athi River police boss Catherine Ringera on Thursday said the car had nothing inside when it was brought to the station.

“We inspected it and other than the spare wheel and a wheel jack, there was nothing else in it,” she said.Detectives have now summoned the owner of the car plus the man who is said to have come to the station wanting to have it released to him.

A search on the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) system shows that the car is registered to a Ms. Peris Ngugi.Parents of the two children are also set to record fresh statements with the police.

They claim they had received a number of calls from unknown people after their children disappeared, asking them for ransom.None of these claims were reported at the Athi River Police Station, apart from the fact that Alvina and Jacktone had disappeared
