EMOTIONAL: Kalonzo weeps after Raila mentions his sick wife



Kalonzo wept after Raila spoke of the attack on the Wiper leader’s home.

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka on Thursday afternoon broke down during a NASA press conference at the Okoa Kenya offices in Nairobi.

The press conference was called by the four NASA principals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula aimed at assuring their supporters that the coalition was intact and they remained united.

Speaking shortly after Musyoka made his speech, Odinga offered his encouragement to the Wiper leader after the attack on his home in Karen early Wednesday morning.

Police later confirmed that a grenade attack occurred at Musyoka’s home and recovered a live bullet and a stun grenade which they said was non-lethal.

“Pole to my brother Stephen Kalonzo for the attack at his compound against his family. My brother here has got a sick wife who is ambulant in the house. Imagine the kind of shock such a person would receive when a grenade is thrown into the compound, and bullets are fired,” Odinga said during the presser.

It is at this time that an emotional Musyoka who was standing next to Odinga took out his handkerchief from his pocket and wept.

Here is the video:


Rumours had been rife especially by Kenyans on social media who had said the coalition was dead after Musyoka, Mudavadi and Wetangula skipped Odinga’s swearing-in as the “People’s President” on Tuesday, January 30th before millions at the historic Uhuru Park grounds.

The three principals later sent a message to their supporters hours after they missed Raila Odinga’s swearing-in at Uhuru Park.

In a statement signed by the three, the principals said they were unable to assemble today as earlier planned due to circumstances beyond their comprehension and control.

“I have told him if the children are not his, let him come we carry out a DNA, he has stopped paying for rent, and claimed the children are Pastor JJ’s,” she said adding that she had met with pastor JJ Gitahi on three occasions then stopped so she could concentrate on Mr Githae.

American newspaper New York Times declines to pull down graphic images on Dusit attack



The New York Times has come under intense pressure from its readers and Kenyans online for publishing graphic images of victims of Tuesday’s terror attack at Dusit D2 Hotel at Riverside Drive in Nairobi.

Kenyans on Twitter came out in droves to condemn the New York Times after it published gory images that attracted a global outcry.

In a statement, the American publication said: “We have heard from some readers upset with our publishing a photo showing victims after a brutal attack in Nairobi.”

“We understand how painful this coverage can be, and we try to be very sensitive in how we handle both words and images in these situations,” the statement read.

Images published by powerful paper on its website showed bodies in the restaurant, victims covered in blood and gory scenes.

This sparked off an online backlash, with some readers asking the publisher to pull them down, because of their distasteful nature.

But the publisher is yet to delete the photos from their story.

We want to be respectful to the victims and to others affected by the attack. But we also believe it is important to give our readers a clear picture of the horror of an attack like this — this includes showing pictures that are not sensationalised but that give a real sense of the situation,” the publisher said in a statement published on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

The publisher said they take the same approach worldwide whenever such events occur by balancing the need for sensitivity for respect with its mission of showing the reality of the happenings.
