Pomp, colour and fireworks as President Kenyatta’s son weds at State House

Published

on

With all the pomp and lavishness befitting a man from the first family, president Uhuru Kenyatta’s first son, Jomo Kenyatta, married his long-time sweetheart Fiona Achola Ngobi in an elegant all-white ceremony held at State House on Sunday evening.

The invite-only wedding was kept out of media and public attention and guests are reported to have been barred from accessing the venue with any recording cameras or phones. Probably explains why nothing from the event is yet to leak on social media.

Achola is niece to Defence CS Raychelle Omamo and granddaughter to the late William Odongo Omamo; former minister for Agriculture, Minister for Environment and Natural Resources and a former Member of Parliament for the Bondo Constituency and Muhoroni Constituency.

Achola and Kenyatta welcomed their first child, baby Wanjiru, in November 2017.

The wedding attracted top personalities within Kenya’s political and social scene, and was complete with fireworks at night.

The two held their traditional dowry and wedding ceremony in 2016 in Ichaweri, Gatundu. The baby was named Wanjiru after Kenyatta’s mother, First Lady Margaret.

 

We wish the couple all the best in their marriage.

-Citizen

Published

on

A General Service Unit officer held over the murder of 28-year-old Monica Kimani is highly trained. Jennings Orlando, 31, belongs to the Recce Squad of GSU, which is based at Ruiru in Kiambu County.

Sources said Orlando was among dozens of officers attached to the US embassy and a member of the Special Programme for Embassy Augmentation and Response (SPEAR).

SPEAR is a team composed of GSU officers whose mission is to respond to critical incidents involving US mission facilities and personnel locally.

Currently, SPEAR teams support US diplomatic missions in Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Chad, Iraq, South Sudan, Tunisia, Nigeria and Kenya.

The SPEAR programme provides training for a quick-reaction force as well as movement security training, a master trainer programme, and equipment loans.

Orlando was arrested on Thursday and produced in a Kiambu court on Friday, where the prosecution requested to hold him for 14 days to conduct investigations into Monica’s murder

Orlando is a friend of Joseph Irungu alias Jowie, who has, alongside TV journalist Jacque Maribe, been charged with the September 19 murder.

Maribe and Irungu will appear in court on October 24 for their bail application hearing. Sources said Orlando could be used as a witness in the case if he co-operates with prosecution. Monica’s body was found in a bathtub in Lamuria Apartments in Kilimani, Nairobi, where she lived.

Also still missing are her house and car keys. Detectives are reconstructing Orlando’s movements before and after the night Monica was killed. Kiambu magistrate Justus Kituku on Friday directed that Orlando be presented in court on November 2.

I had been messing around with a girl then found out she has HIV: Nick Odhiambo

Published

Radio presenter Nick Odhiambo has finally revealed the why he decided to shave his seven-year-old dreadlocks.

Speaking during K24’s Talk Central show hosted by Kalekye Mumo, Nick disclosed that he almost contacted HIV/AIDS after finding out that a girl he was ‘messing’ around with was HIV/AIDS positive.

I was messing around with this chic then after messing around for some time I found out that she has got HIV. Weh! Weh! Eeh! I went to the hospital I did all those tests and I said ‘God to give me another chance I will never let you down. Let me change my life,” said Nick.

It was then that he decided to accept change and approach life from a different angle. In October last year, the husky-voiced radio personality shaved his trademark dreadlocks.

I decided to cut off my dreads because it was October the cancer awareness month, I had changed jobs and some things had happened in my life and I decided to change everything. In 2017 something happened in my life and I said ‘Dear God I will not do this again,” he shared.

After verifying the hospital tests, an ecstatic Nick promised God he will change his ways and live according to his will and he will never let him down.

Everything just started happening, I changed houses, changed girlfriends, the only thing I had remained was the job and the look. So I got a job at a Swahili station and as things were going on I just had to get rid of the look. That’s how the look changed,” he revealed.

VIDEO: “Beautiful barmaid” is accused of snatching husbands, tens of women storm bar

Published

on

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

There was a major commotion in Kiharu constituency, Murang’a County, after angry women stormed a local bar to flush out a barmaid they claimed was snatching their husbands.

The women who camped outside a dinking joint called Kuku Base Bar claimed that their husbands have abandoned  them and their children for the woman.

They accused the woman of enjoying their husbands’ hard earned sweat from their casual labour.

One of the women was heard saying her husband has on several occasions lied to her that he would be late from work only to learn that he has been having a good time at the bar.

This woman is a home-wrecker because she has made men run away from  us. She should go back to where she came from,” she said.

But their efforts to flush out the young woman were thwarted by their husbands who blocked them from accessing the bar, accusing the women of unfairly targeting the barmaid.

They accused the women of being jealous of one of their own for being able to win hearts of many men.

One of the men who stopped the women from entering the bar said the young woman is always grateful for anything a man gives her as a tip or for any service she offers, unlike their wives who keep demanding more money each time.

He added that the woman “also smells good and applies make up and cologne, making her smell good throughout the day”.  Unconfirmed reports indicate that two men from the area committed suicide after being rejected by the woman.

Area chief Mary Wambui confirmed the incident saying that she had ordered the woman to relocate to another place  for the sake of peace in the village.
