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:

Amina Abdi: Bribery made me quit music

Published

on

Media personality Amina Abdi Rabar has revealed that she quit doing music because of rampant bribing she experienced in the Kenyan music industry.

Before joining the media, Amina’s first love was music. She gave a glimpse of her singing talent with songs such as On Me, featuring Jay A, and Swag, featuring Octopizzo.

CRAZY BRIBERY

However, Amina, who hosts the weekly show The Trend on NTV, would quit music almost immediately to fully concentrate on building a career in the media as well as establish herself as one of the most sought after emcees in the country.

But why exactly did she dump the recording booth?

“It was the bribing you had to do and because I was on radio and no one was paying me to play any of the music. I didn’t expect that. It really caught me by surprise,” Amina said in a conversation with Vybz Yaard.

But that wasn’t all. Making music also proved to be very expensive for her.

EXPENSIVE VENTURE

“There was lack of support and then it was very difficult to get started. They say there is a certain video type of quality that can be played on air. A good quality video, how much is it? By that time when I was releasing Paint Town Red I was told 300K and I’m making sijui 15K. It was really hard and TV and radio was picking up. I could see the potential it had, so that’s what I focused on,” said Amina, who is also presenter at Capital FM.

Amina however says she will soon make a comeback to music after almost a decade of silence.

But this time round, she says, she will be doing music only as a hobby with the media remaining her core hustle.

Amina started her media career at Homeboyz Radio where she met her husband DJ John Rabar, one of the station’s founders.

AMINA’S DRIVE

The bubbly presenter, who is also a notable influencer, says besides being self-driven, her husband Rabar is the one who constantly challenges her to work even harder.

“My partner also pushes me, my husband works very hard. He is extremely ambitious and really pushes me to work harder. He never allows me to take breaks. If you have someone like that who you live with, who is always working, anakuaga na zile za wewe una do nini? So pia wewe unajipata unafanya vitu,” she said.

Amina and Rabar have a son and hinted they may never make any more babies.

Plane capacities will not be reduced for social distancing, Transport CS says

Published

on

Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia has said airline capacity will not be reduced to observe social distancing rules once domestic and international flights resume.

The CS made the announcement while outlining the protocols the ministry has come up with to curb the spread of Covid-19 in the country during a press briefing on Wednesday at Transcom House in Nairobi.

AIR TRAVEL

This comes at a time the country is preparing to open its airspace for domestic and international flights in the next few weeks.

Macharia said airlines will not have to drastically reduce the number of passengers for them to fly, adding that if they carry less than 75 per cent in their flights, they would incur losses.

He said this will help in revamping the tourism sector, which has taken a hit since the pandemic struck the country in March this year.

“The passengers must go with Covid-19 free certificate. I would expect that if you are flying out, it would be prudent for you to be tested because you may not be allowed into other countries,” he said.

The CS also said an exception would be made for passengers who have to catch a late-night flight.

“If you are flying at night and you show the boarding pass/ticket, you will be allowed to go to the airport with your driver,” he said.

AIR TICKET PRICES

The CS, however, discouraged travellers from having many people escorting them to the airport.

In May, Kenya Airways Chief Executive Officer Allan Kilavuka said the price of air tickets will most likely be hiked if the government allows the national carrier to resume flights.

He indicated that air travel would completely change as every country comes up with new plans and policies to be adapted post coronavirus.

He noted that 55 to 65 per cent of people travel for leisure, which means between May and December airlines are missing out on this big business and income.

“Travel is not going to be cheap. 55-65 per cent of people travel for leisure. Therefore we are going to lose 51-76 per cent of our market between now and December as business travellers are the ones that are going to travel first,” Kilavuka said.

SAFETY MEASURES

The KQ boss noted that among other measures wearing of masks will be mandatory for passengers and crew while airport staff will be required to wear protective gear.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday announced that all international flights shall resume from August 1.

The President also announced the resumption of local flights from July 15 under strict guidelines in the country’s planned phased reopening.

The move comes after three months of suspension of all travels in and out of the country.

The global aviation industry has been massively affected by the coronavirus pandemic with most countries having suspended international flights.

BY KEVIN KOECH

Witty sports journalist Tony Kwalanda has landed a new job barely a month after being fired by K24 TV.

Through his Twitter page, Kwalanda revealed that he will now be working at Red Cross owned TV station, Switch TV.

Through his tweet, the journalist announced his new blessing in one of the wittiest ways.

”Tony Kwalanda is switchING to which TV station?” he tweeted.

However, it is not yet clear which show Kwalanda will be hosting at Switch TV.

Kwalanda joins Switch TV barely a month after he was shown the door at K24 where he was working as a sports news anchor.

He is among over 100 journalists who were mercilessly fired from K24 over alleged redundancy.

While most of the affected employees chose to start their private ventures, some like Kwalanda were lucky enough to find new jobs.
