BY BMJ MURIITHI
Some think the cartoon is too harsh. Others say it reveals the truth on the ground. Although it doesn’t name many names, most Kenyans online think they know what Godfrey Mwampembwa (Gado) had in mind when doing the caricature. Upon seeing the cartoon, one Ngugi Mbugua wrote: “Gado is actively wooing deportation. Same way Magufuli would declare any TZ-based Kenyan cartoonist “prohibited immigrant” and deport him posthaste!”
What do you think?
 Here are some of the reactions in the social media:

Lusenaka Masinde: Try ask your child which leader is that you’ll be shocked…………. but do we say!

 Steenie Njoroge: We don’t know until we ask them. Right?

Eduardo Waigwa:  Was it published ?

Steenie Njoroge: It is here.is it not?

Emmah Mwoche:  Isn’t this illegal

Ngugi Mbugua:  Gado is actively wooing deportation. Same way Magufuli would declare any TZ-based Kenyan cartoonist “prohibited immigrant”, and deport him posthaste!

Trump now makes it harder for Immigrants to get Green Cards and deny citizenship to those who “can’t support themselves”

Published

on

The Trump administration has announced new policy that makes it tougher for legal immigrants in the United States to obtain permanent residency or citizenship.

In a policy titled “Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds” that appeared Monday on the Federal Register, the administration says immigrants who use public benefits such as food stamps, Medicaid, or public housing will be considered a “public charge”. Becoming a pubic charge or likely to become a pubic charge is grounds to be denied a green card.

“Through the public charge rule, President Trump’s administration is reinforcing the ideals of self-sufficiency and personal responsibility, ensuring that immigrants are able to support themselves and become successful here in America,” Acting director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Ken Cuccinelli said at a White House briefing on Monday.

Analysts say the new move could dramatically reduce family-based legal immigration from Mexico, Central America and Africa, where intending green card holders are economically disadvantaged.

Under US law, only US citizens and legal permanent residents who have had their green cards for at least five years are eligible to apply for federal public benefits.

Joe Mwangi now responds to allegations of exploiting Gymnast Wendy Waeni [VIDEO]

Published

on

On learning that renowned gymnast, Wendy Waeni, had accused him of swindling her, Promoter Joe Mwangi took to social media on Thursday to respond to the allegations, terming them as false.

On Wednesday night, during Citizen TV’s JKLive show, Wendy  claimed that she had been exploited by Mwangi, who now is  her ex-manager.

Mwangi strongly denied ever traversing the world with the 14-year-old at any point in her gymnastics career.

“On the video, it has been said that I (Joe) have  travelled all over the world with Wendy, the fact is I have never ever left this country in the company of Ms Waeni.

“Anybody with any proof that I have flown out at any given time with her, put it here,” he challenged.

Mwangi also differed with Wendy’s accusation of not paying her despite all the trips they made around the world, terming them as unrealistic.

“It is also alleged that for more than five years, Wendy has never received a penny, I mean, which parent in this world will allow his/her kid to be misused for not one month, not a year, but five years?” posed Mwangi.

The former manager asked interested parties to take note of a photo of Wendy, Ellyanne Githae, a nature enthusiast, Jeff and two other guests had taken, inferring that a party in the photo had coached Wendy to accuse him falsely.

“For now, someone kindly save this photo you will come to understand who the interested parties and scriptwriter is in the next few days,” he urged.

During the show hosted by renowned journalist Jeff Koinange, Ms Waeni painfully narrated how her abilities had taken her around the world, performing for global leaders but was still condemned to a life of struggle, after the said manager failed to share proceeds from her shows.

“I have been performing all over the world Jeff. I know you know that. Right now, I live in Huruma because of Joe Mwangi. Jeff to be sincere with you, I’ve been performing all over like Rwanda, Germany, China and I haven’t got a single penny. My mum is really suffering now as we talk. I know she’s working right now, she sells sweets. I live in a single room in Huruma now Jeff,” she spoke.

Ms Waeni’s revelation, that sparked anger from viewers who watched, also caught the attention of the Principal Prosecution Counsel in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP), Duncan Ondimu.

Ondimu, who was watching the show, condemned Mwangi’s act and urged Wendy’s mum, a single mother, to file an official complaint.

“This is so criminal of Joe Mwangi. So sad what he has done to the little girl. He ought to pay heavily for what he has done,” he commented.

“I hope she and her mum file an official police complaint. I’m sure the DCI would gladly investigate. He should be aware of Section 268, 313 of the Penal Code,” Ondimu added.

Trump administration announces changes to US Citizenship Test

Published

on

The Trump administration has announced  that it will revise the current test to become a citizen of the United States.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said in a statement that it is revising the current citizenship test “to ensure it continues to serve as an accurate measure of a naturalization applicant’s civics knowledge and that it reflects best practices in adult education assessments.”

The agency did not include details about the exact changes, but said that a working group is reviewing and updating questions. In addition, that group will also “assess potential changes to the speaking portion of the test.”

The new test will be implemented in either December 2020 or early 2021, after analysis of a pilot beginning this fall. The test was last revised in 2008.

Acting USCIS Director Ken Cuccinelli also said in the statement that the agency has the responsibility of  “updating, maintaining, and improving” the test in an effort “to help potential new citizens fully understand the meaning of U.S. citizenship and the values that unite all Americans.”
