The editor, founder and executive director of ‘AfroElle’ magazine  Patricia Miswa has passed away in Minnesota. USA.

Miswa was pursuing a Masters degree in one of the colleges in MN after graduating with a bachelors degree in Mass Communication from Daystar University in Kenya.

Below is a message posted by Doreen Selly, a close friend to the deceased:

With a heavy heart, we are saddened to announce the death of Patricia Miswa which occured on January 4th, 2018 at Mankato, MN.

At the time of her death, Patricia was a student at Minnesota State University, Mankatto, where she was pursuing her Master’s degree.

This sudden loss has devastated the family and close friends and even though we can offer support both emotionally and physically I feel there is more we can do to help.

It is the family’s wish to have Patricia buried on a family grave plot in Kenya. The cost of having her flown back to Kenya and buried are extortionate.

Your kind donations of whatever size will help the family accomplish this goal.

May God bless you as you help support this cause.

Kind regards,
Doreen

Miswa  was born on Sep 24th 1985

Details of the circumstances surrounding the death are still scanty but will be posted here as soon as they become available.

Here is Selly’s statement posted on social media on Friday:

Friends, it’s been a sad day for me after learning of the passing of my childhood friend Patricia Miswa 😭😭😭

I never thought I’d ever type a RIP for a dear close friend.

She passed away yesterday at a tender age of 32 in Mankato, MN here in the US where she was pursuing her masters degree.

The family wishes to have Patricia buried in Kenya. The cost of having her flown back to Kenya extortionate.

Help Patricia’s family with the funeral arrangements whichever way you can 🙏
No amount is too small. $1,5,10,100 anything so they can send the body home for proper send off.

Miswa was the founder and editor-in-chief of AfroElle Magazine, a digital publication that celebrates women of African heritage. She started the platform 7 years ago and has made tremendous strides in achieving the goals she set out to achieve.

AfroElle magazine has featured over 500 stories of women in Africa and the Diaspora. They are business owners, change-makers, artists, non-profit directors, and more—including women like Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter Zoleka, Hollywood actress Lisa Raye and many more.

The digital magazine has truly created a space for women to build relationships and gain inspiration for starting their own projects. As AfroElle celebrates its 5th anniversary, I sat down with Patricia to discuss her journey and provide some insightful remedies on teamwork and impacting change in her media.

VIDEO: Kenyans in Diaspora reject BBI report, referendum

A lobby for Kenyans  in the diaspora is urging voters to reject the  Building Bridges Initiative report in the  referendum being championed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

According to Commonwealth Voter Privileges Right Association (COVPRA) the report is being imposed on Kenyans after the views of  certain groups and  elected leaders views were rejected..

Uhuru and Raila have rejected amendments to the final report saying those opposing it had time to give their views to the fourteen member committee they appointment.

 

The lobby avers that the recommendations in the final report do not represent the position of all Kenyans and a contested referendum would divide Kenyans.

“Kenyans should reject the BBI report. It is two man initiative that is being imposed on the people. The clergy have rejected it, several groups have rejected it. It’s not a Wanjiku Initiative. A few people and their surrogates want to change the Constitution for their personal gain,” Mr David Kimengere Waititu, the association’s Organising secretary told the Nation.

“It would have been  necessary to allow debate on all the issues that  arose in the final report  before coming  up with a bill. Kenyans are being taken for a ride,”  he said.

In June the group petitioned the committee  led by Garissa senator Yusuf Hajji to allow views from all dissenting voices saying all Kenyans should be allowed to participate.

“Freedom to Assembly, Freedom of expression and Freedom to political participation are so important in a  process like this one. It would be a sham  if the BBI Team was to ignore the views of some Kenyans. During the  meetings to sensitize the public on the initiative,” Kimengere said.

Leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto and civil society are opposed to some of the proposals in the final report.

The group says a contested referendum would leave the country divided.

“We do not want a process that would leave Kenyans more divided. Let all Kenyans reject this report in a referendum to save their country from a few people who think they own Kenya.  We in Covpra, have our motherland at heart,” he said.

 Covpra said that the future of Kenya lies in the hands of the hollo polloi and not it’s leaders.

“ We call upon the Kenyans poor not to buy to the schemes of the dynasties. Let us protect our country by rejecting this monster called BBI if it goes to the referendum.

The group said in a statement that Kenyans should reject plots by politician to engage in chaos.

“At the end, this might result to   a badly contested referendum and  create a poisoned society ahead of the 2022 general elections. Let’s refuse any incitement to violence and stand up against the dynasties to shape the future of Kenya,” he says.

In their June petition, the group cited the strained relations between the Executive and the Judiciary and the fall out in the ruling Jubilee party over the process as a matter of concern.

“Our position stands that there is no proposal  to fix the simmering tensions between the two arms of government and between the two leaders of the Executive,” Mr Kimengere stated.

Ciru Njuguna is 28 and her husband Greg Twiss is 60. Please don’t let that age gap fool you, these two deeply love each other and they are living their best life together.

But when people say Ciru is just after Greg’s money and he will end up in a septic tank, that gets to her. She is not ashamed of her relationship and strongly urges the public to let other people be.

“My German husband is older than my father. People say I am his slave and he is a colonial master,” she says.

She sat down with Lynn Ngugi for this exclusive episode of Tuko Talks and this is her story.
