VIDEO: Furious Barack Muluka spills beans on what happened as Raila was being ‘sworn in’

Published

on

Kenyan opposition party Amani National Congress (ANC), a constituent member of the National Super Alliance (Nasa), now claims Mr Odinga “fooled” his co-principals in order to be sworn in alone.

ANC secretary-general Barrack Muluka on Wednesday night told Jeff Koinange Live (JKL) that Mr Odinga threw his colleagues into a spin when he appeared alone at Uhuru Park despite an agreement to meet before the event.

He termed the swearing-in a “dramatic statement,” which was just a “demonstration of frustration in point of facts”.

“He (Raila) told these three gentlemen to switch off their phones, and that he would reach them using a foreign number from Nigeria (sic), to tell them where they should meet that morning. That call never came,” Mr Muluka told Citizen TV.

He claimed Mr Odinga “lied” about his whereabouts on the morning of January 30 only to appear at Uhuru Park alone to take the oath.

“The three principals were not foolish enough to switch off their phones so they agreed to meet in the home of one of them. One of the principals managed to get him (Raila) and that call was put on speaker phone,” he said.

“Raila said ‘I’m marooned’ and he was asked by who? And he said, ‘these people’”, Mr Muluka said.

“He was asked, marooned by police or the military? he quickly said ‘I will call you and tell you how we can meet’, then he left for Uhuru Park.”

Mr Muluka says Raila had signed an agreement which prohibits him from running again in 2022 regardless the outcome of the 2017 election.

He wants the Orange Democratic Movement leader to come out and tell Kenyans what really happened during that swearing-in. Watch the full JKL show below:

I was violently mugged at a well-lit street in Nairobi

Published

on

On Friday night, I lost my precious wristwatch and my utterly worthless cellphone to muggers at a well-lit street in the Nairobi city centre.

I was heading home from work at about 8.30 pm when a gang of five hoodlums pounced on me along Aru Lane, which is a stone’s throw away from Mfangano Street where I usually board my matatu.

They swiftly cut me off my route, boxed me into a tight corner and relieved me of whatever valuables I had on me.

The guy who initially accosted me – he must have been the ringleader – had threatened to draw a gun and shoot me if I tried anything stupid.

He had both hands in his pockets, so I couldn’t tell whether he had a gun or not, but I didn’t want to take any chances.

As this guy, who was in a greyish hoodie, and his accomplice flanked me on both sides, I took a quick backwards glance and noticed two heavyset fellows closing in. By the time I shifted my gaze forward, yet another menacing figure had sprung from nowhere.

I quickly realised I was cornered and outnumbered.

In that moment, I knew it was no use trying to fight these guys off. Not even the hard-tackling tight-head prop from my rugby-playing days would save me.

I wasn’t ready to become part of the city’s grim crime statistics of those who have been maimed, or had worse things done to them by muggers.

I meekly surrendered to their demands.

The whole incident barely lasted a minute, but in the brief moment I was held hostage in that corner, my mind raced to my wife and two young kids waiting for me at home.

Mercifully, I got through the ordeal unscathed and later got home to a warm hug from my three-year-old son.

I recounted my harrowing experience to my shell-shocked household. It wasn’t until hours later that we partook our evening meal.

Dangerous streets

I’ve since fully recovered from that experience, having had some good rest over the weekend.

When I shared my story with a close relative, he also recounted a similar mugging incident that happened on a Sunday evening at the junction of Mama Ngina Street and Kimathi Street.

Unlike me, this brother attempted to be a hero and nearly paid for it with his life.

In the middle of an ill-advised scuffle with his assailants, one of the muggers drew a knife and swung it at his abdomen. He quickly ducked, and the knife only grazed his thigh.

On seeing that their would-be victim wasn’t going down without a fight, the three thugs quickly vanished into an adjacent alley.

In retrospect, he says, he would not have tried to fight back.

That is what the streets of Nairobi have become; crowded places, bustling with human and car traffic by day but which become extremely dangerous at nightfall.

ATM machines that dot the exterior parts of many banking halls in the CDB are particularly risky places to visit in the evenings, especially when streets are deserted.

So too are alleys and backstreets, including Ngamia Lane and Tausi Lane, on either side of Nation Centre.

My priceless wristwatch is gone, but I thank God I lived to tell the tale – and write a story – of my encounter with Nairobi’s ruthless muggers.

Man beats up Bungoma musician for supporting DP Ruto

Published

on

Police in Webuye have launched a manhunt for a handshake supporter who reportedly assaulted a musician for backing Deputy President William Ruto.

Bungoma East police boss Valarian Obore said police are looking for Mr Bernard Wakamala, alias Jaramogi, for clobbering Mr David Sakari, who usually performs in Webuye Juakali band troupe led by Kimilili MCA David Barasa.

The short statured performer is remembered for having been awarded a customised vehicle for the disabled by Dr Ruto in 2016.

Mr Obore said Mr Sakari was assaulted at Satellite Hotel in Webuye town on Friday night after praising the DP.

“He took a beer bottle and hit me on the head twice. I bled profusely before friends took me to Webuye Sub County Hospital, where I was treated and discharged,” said Mr Sakari.

Bungoma Musicians Association Chairman Kasembeli Watila condemned the incident and called on the police to speed up investigations and arrest the suspect.

Daughter’s comment to dad accidentally exposes mum’s affair with neighbor

Published

on

A husband has said an everyday conversation with his young daughter exposed his wife’s cheating and shattered their 14-year marriage. Steven (not his real name) returned home one day and listened as his daughter as told him about her day, when one detail of her story jumped out. The girl mentioned that her mum had been at the neighbour’s house, leading to her dad asking more about what had happened.

She recounted that when she arrived home from school she found her mum was not there, but instead the neighbour popped his head round his front door and told her that her mum would “be right out”. Alarm bells started ringing for Steven, who said he asked his wife why she had been with their neighbour the following day, as reported by Kidspot.

At first she passed it off as nothing and came up with a quick excuse, but her husband said due to the length of time they had been together, he knew exactly how she acted when she was lying. She eventually broke down and admitted that they had kissed and touched, but that it “felt wrong” so she stopped it. “I know how she lies to everybody, and how good she is at it,” said Steven. “So I believe that it went further than the kissing.”

He says he kicked her out of the house but later agreed to marriage counseling and allowing her to move back in, which he said he did “more for the kids”. But he became even more suspicious when she later revealed the pair had been speaking for several weeks before they met up, as an innocent text message led to exchanging photos and flirty texts. His wife maintained that it hadn’t gone further than a kiss, with Steven adding: “She said that it was just wrong and stopped immediately.

“She said that when it was texting it wasn’t real and when it got down to it in real life she felt like she was going to vomit. But I just don’t see two adults stopping given the opportunity to do what they had been talking about for three weeks. I’m literally going crazy because I do love her but it’s starting to feel like love you have for a longtime friend and not a love you feel for your wife.”

After asking for advice on Reddit, one said: “I think at this point you have to assume she did cheat on you and then ask yourself whether you can forgive her. Figure out what it will take for you to be able to stay with your wife and not be thinking about what happened in ways that interferes with you and your family’s wellbeing. It will take time.”

Another wrote: “Counselling is a good first start. She is going to have to make major reparations to repair the relationship. She might not be up to the task. Good luck.”
