Raila’s spokesman supports Trump’s Sh**t hole remarks, social media errupts

Published

BY BMJ MURIITHI

ODM leader Raila Odinga’s spokesman, Dennis Onyango, has caused an online storm after complimenting US President Donald Trump over his  remarks describing African nations as “sh**hole” countries.

Onyango agrees with Trump that there indeed are such Countries, citing the intrigues surrounding last year’s presidential elections in Kenya to justify the US Head of State’s claims.

The spokesman also wonders why immigrants living in the US have not returned home in protest over Trump’s remarks.

On Thursday, President  Trump was reported as referring to Haiti and African nations as “sh**hole countries” during a meeting with a bipartisan group of senators at the White House, eliciting worldwide condemnation.

Watch related video below:

Trump’s comments were first reported by The Washington Post.

Onyango was quick to react on Facebook.

“On the sh*thole nations business, I stand with Trump. There are sh*thole nations on earth and Trump should get citizens of such nations out of the US,” Onyango notes.

“Does anybody know one country where the head of elections body declared he could not guarantee credible elections as Wafula Chebukati did in Kenya then proceeded to hold elections and claimed they were credible, free and fair?”

“The Supreme Court asked the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to open its servers. That order stands ignored to date and then we say we are unaware of a sh*thole nation? Does anybody know a country that ignored the orders of its Supreme Court especially on a matter as critical as presidential elections?”

“Which country ever failed to raise a quorum to hear a Supreme Court case as happened in Kenya in 2017? And then we say there is no sh*thole nation on earth? There are sh*thole nations on earth that can’t pay their doctors, professors, nurses, teachers and can’t elect leaders.”

He also questions why African migrants in United States have not returned to their countries in protests of Trump’s remarks, if they believe their nations are not “sh**hole.”

“Their citizens run to the US, Europe and even the Middle East. Trump says it and we feign anger but no citizen of those sh*thole nations leaves US to return home in protest because they know there is sh*t at home. Trump is right. There are sh*thole nations on earth,” wrote Onyango.

Reactions were swift:

Owenga Major Samfred This is what happens when one thinks they ought to have a say in everything. Trumps ‘Shithole’ comments are RACIST no matter how you look at them.
You are completely off on this and not even education will salvage you. Instead you need a thorough reexamination of self as you suffer a big head syndrome.

Mell Gibson ODM is the biggest shithole in africa, you people rigged nominations for the preferred candidates especially in homabay, kisumu, clean your house before shouting loud.

Paka Maridadi My brother Onyango,i beg to disagree with you on this,Kenya will never or any country will never be a shithole,each country has one or good sides of them.Our leaders are assholes but not my country Kenya.

John Simba And what you guys did in Nyatike warrants the place to be declared as the mother of shit holes.

Jaguar’s baby mama pregnant with second child

Published

on

Starehe Member of Parliament Charles Njagua’s baby mama, Magda Ngima, is expecting her second child.

Ngima, who has lately been flaunting her growing baby bump lately on social media, recently threw herself an exquisite baby shower at a Nairobi  hotel.

The gold-themed event was attended by Ngima’s family members and close friends.

In a recent photo posted on social media Ngima wrote the telling message: “And yes yes, you come first in my life, the rest can follow.”

She followed it up with another photo of herself all smiles with her daughter Tamara Wambui, who also happens to be Jaguar’s first born.

BABY MAMA DRAMAS

Jaguar and Ngima are no longer in a relationship but they are co-parenting their daughter.

The singer-turned-politician has managed to keep his private life under wraps and although he has children with two women, he has never been subjected to any baby mama dramas.

Michelle reveals boyfriends she had before Obama, details of her first kiss ever

Published

on

In her new memoir, Becoming, Michelle Obama not only talks about her public role and her family but also delves into her love life revealing, for instance, the first time she had a kiss as a teenager.

“I arranged my first kiss, in fact, over the phone,” she writes.

“It was with a boy named Ronnell. Ronnell didn’t go to my school or live in my immediate neighbourhood, but he sang in the Chicago Children’s Choir.”

At the time, Michelle would observe how other girls her age were changing due to the onset of adolescence and how the rush of hormones made her accompany her friends to watch boys play. To increase her chances of being noticed, she would often tag one of her popular friends along.

“Being around boys, I was slowly coming to realise, was fun,” she writes in the book that comes out this week and for which she and her husband, former US President Barack Obama, were paid a joint advance fee of $65 million (Sh6.5 billion).

In her gap year, she worked in a bookbindery, where she met another prospective boyfriend, David.

And when it was time for her to join Princeton University, David and her father drove her all the way to the campus.

However, she says that even by then, she had made up her mind to move on.

“David was easy-going and also more of an adult than any boyfriend I’d had. He sat on the couch and watched ball games with my father. He joked around with Craig and made polite conversations with my mom… We fooled around and smoked pot in his car…”

MEETING OBAMA

Once in Princeton, a new vista opened up for Michelle and, in time, she met another boyfriend, Kevin, a football player but it did not work out.

He eventually became a doctor and married a college mate of Michelle’s.

She, too, graduated with a law degree and joined a prestigious law firm in Chicago, Sidley & Austin, and that was where one of the senior partners asked her if she would be willing to mentor one of the young lawyers, known as summer associates, that the company was grooming.

“Of course you will,” she writes. “You have yet to understand the altering force of a simple yes … Next to your name is another name, that of some hotshot law student who’s busy climbing his own ladder. Like you, he’s black and from Harvard. Other than that, you know nothing — just the name, and it’s an odd one.”

And that is how she met Barack Obama, the son of a Kenyan student.

Obama would later become the 44th US President before handing over power to Donald Trump.

Michelle has made it clear that there is no love lost between her and President Trump.

Maribe landed at the wedding venue in a chopper flanked by Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria.

The Citizen TV news anchor was among the dignitaries who attended the wedding of Samburu West MP Naisula Lesuuda at Lesirai in Samburu County.

The embattled journalist, who Nairobi News understands was among the invited guests, landed at the venue in a chopper alongside Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria.

“Off to Samburu for the wedding of Hon Naisula Lesuuda, colleague and long time close friend since media days,” Kuria captioned the photos.

In one of the photos, Maribe, Kuria and two other legislators posed for photos with a chopper right behind them.

WEDDING 

Lesuuda and her longtime lover Robert Kiplagat exchanged vows at a lavish wedding at ACK St. Phillips Lesirai in Samburu County.

Maribe, who is battling murder charges in related to the gruesome murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani, is currently out on bail after spending five weeks in custody.

Understandably, the journalist has opted to maintain a low profile since she secured temporary freedom amid strict warnings from the court on what she should and shouldn’t do.

Her fiancé Joe Irungu alias Jowie who is the main suspect in the murder case remains in custody having been denied bail.
