EMOTIONAL: Kalonzo weeps after Raila mentions his sick wife

Published

on

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.

VIDEO: US-Based Kenyan Woman Whose Daughter Confessed to Infecting Men with HIV speaks out

Published

on

A US-based Kenyan woman whose daughter recently admitted to deliberately infecting men with HIV is speaking out. In an interview with Jeremy Damaris of  Kikuyu Diaspora Media, Njoki’s mother Lucy Ng’endo has accused her daughter of lying during her interview with Tuko.co.ke.

In the past interview, the 36-year-old Jackline Njoki Mwangi partly blamed her mother who she said moved to the US leaving her behind.

But now Ng’endo says contrary to her daughter’s assertion, she brought her up like any other parent would but she “developed bad behaviors in her early teenage years.”

“It reached a time that I traveled and she started getting herself into bad practices. I actually think it started a long time, it is just that I had not known,” added Ng’endo.

“I have gone through so much pain because of this child,” she added.

The mother further said that their current disagreement was due to her refusal to send money to her daughter, adding that she has constantly insulted her using unprintables.

“But I still love her,” she says.

“Whenever she calls me, she is demanding for money. I found out she was just using me. I have sent her money many times and she uses it for her personal luxuries,” she said.

“I cannot fail to love her despite all this. We have never abandoned her because she is sick. I love her and if she wants medical help I will help her,” added Ng’endo.

She was infected with HIV when she was 18 years old as she tried to make money for herself and her nephew’s upkeep.

Kimunya hits at Maraga over Parliament dissolution

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya has accused Chief Justice David Maraga of creating chaos in the country with his advisory to President Uhuru Kenyatta on dissolving the Parliament.

Kimunya said Maraga made advisory just a week after he appeared before a House committee that apparently annoyed him by insisting he should be prepared to leave office soon.

Speaking to K24 on Sunday, September 27, Kimunya said Maraga appeared before the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee on the September 14 and a week later, he issued the advisory “as an act of self-preservation”.

“This advisory was not done in good faith. It was an act of self-preservation,” he said.

The majority leader also added that the CJ was fully aware that the House had started the process of passing the law allowing for the representation of the marginalised groups including women.

He said there was a matter pending in court also linked to the law and said it was shady that Maraga did not wait for the court case to be determined but thought it was better the Parliament to be dissolved.

In his letter to the president, Maraga said the National Assembly and the Senate had failed to enact legislation required to implement the gender rule for nine years.

He said the dissolution of Parliament under Article 261(7) needed to be enforced to compel the political elite to fully adhere to the 2010 Constitution.
