VIDEO: Exclusive interview with Miguna Miguna on JKL

Published

on

Controversial politician Miguna Miguna’s Wednesday night interview on Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange Live show was a tough one to put it mildly; and arguably a nightmare for a fainthearted journalist.

While some viewers enjoyed the show and were electrified by Miguna’s apparent bravado in the interview, others were dissatisfied and have accused the self-declared NRM general of being dramatic and evasive in his responses.

Miguna, however, disagrees that he failed to answer any questions.

“A polite reminder to some confused Kenyans: Saying “no” to a question is also an answer. If you believe a question is malicious, just say so. You will not die,” tweeted Miguna after being interviewed from Toronto, Canada.

The 21-minute Skype interview kicked off on a high with the interviewee scolding the host and dictating the topic the interview should focus on.

“Miguna, your lawyer Cliff Ombeta received a letter on your nomination by Governor Mike Sonko as deputy governor. Have you received that letter?” Koinange fired the first question only for Miguna to rebuff it.

“Jeff I am not here to talk about Cliff Ombeta or Governor Sonko. I am here to talk about how my rights have been violated by the regime in Nairobi,” replied Miguna.

Miguna would still not clearly answer the second question on whether he would return to the country. He instead embarked on a chronological recount of what transpired before he was forcefully ejected from the country.

When Koinange asked the third question – What are you doing to have yourself back to Kenya? – Miguna seized the moment to criticise the Kenyan media for what he termed as “glorification of tyranny” and blaming State agencies for his woes.

A back-and-forth would then ensue as Miguna insisted that he is a Kenyan citizen and had never lost his citizenship as claimed by the State.

When the lionhearted Koinange sought to stick out the grounds under which the State says Miguna lost his citizenship, the fiery lawyer dropped his gloves and took on the host bare knuckles.

“The problem with you is that you never went to law school, you’re not a judge or a lawyer,” Miguna fired. “Don’t interfere with me. Let me speak,” added Miguna as Koinange tried to interject.

Drama continued with Miguna embarking on a lengthy explanation of why the government does not want him in the country.

When Koinange sought to bring his mighty show to order, Miguna was not ready to be reduced to the ordinary calm interviewee.

“Jeff don’t argue with me let me answer. You are a journalist if you ask a question let me answer. You are suggesting that I help them win a case I already won in court. Is that rational?” Miguna posed when asked why he had declined to reapply for Kenyan citizenship as directed by the government.

Asked who are members of his self-styled National Resistance Movement (NRM), Miguna’s response was a bitter pill to swallow.

“Why do you want to know and you are not an NRM member. You have not asked who Jubilee members are,” said Miguna.

Koinange moved on to the next question: “If you were to come back, could you think about working with Sonko?”

“Jeff I will make announcements as to who I work with or who I don’t when I am back or when I would like to do that. Today that was not the purpose of this interview,” replied Miguna.

“But everyone wants to know,” pleaded Koinange.

Miguna responded: “ Everyone includes me. I don’t want to know what you are asking because it is not a question that Sonko or other people have asked me.”

Seemingly fed up with Miguna, Koinange asked the former Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant why he was not willing to talk about the Capital’s affairs. Miguna replied: “Jeff I will talk about Nairobi when I deem it fit. Not on compulsion from you.”

At the tail end of the interview, a light moment ensued as the take-no-prisoners Miguna finally cracked a smile saying: “Jeff I am a tough cookie, you can’t push me around.”

The interview came to an end on a near similar note as it began.

“Miguna you being outside the country means nothing because you are in the outside looking in. Don’t you think you should be in the inside,” asked Koinange.

“Jeff the problem with you is that you don’t know history,” Miguna fired as he explained how Fidel Castro and other political icons were and later returned to victory.

In the words of Jeff Koinange, “Wow, what a show, what a guest!”

VIDEO: Mystery as Kenyan woman found dead in a car on the highway with rope around her neck

Published

on

After reports Sunday morning of a car stopped on the left side of southbound Loop 101 in Phoenix, Arizona, a Kenyan woman was found unresponsive in the car with a rope around her neck and later pronounced dead, the Department of Public Safety said.

The woman was identified as 29-year-old Stella W. Kiarie. She was an employee of the Arizona Department of Health Services where she worked with refugees.

Officials said Monday that after seeing there was a car seat in the woman’s car, detectives went to her house because they were concerned about the whereabouts of the child. Detectives found a 1-year-old baby boy alone at the house.

The Arizona Department of Child Safety responded and took over care for the child.

DHS also released a statement Monday confirming Kiarie’s death:

All of Stella’s colleagues at Arizona Department of Health Services were saddened by this news and this devastating loss. Stella was a kind, compassionate and important member of this team. Our deepest condolences are with her family and friends at this difficult time.

DPS says the HOV and two other lanes were closed four hours as the scene was under investigation.

No other details were released about the woman’s death. It is uncertain if it is being investigated as a suicide or homicide.

The incident remains under investigation.

101 and Bell Rd

Upon arrival, troopers found a white vehicle crashed against the concrete median wall. The car had some damage to its passenger side.

Troopers determined that it had been traveling southbound on the highway when it crashed.

They then entered the car through an unlocked door and found an unconscious female in the driver’s seat, later determined to be Kiarie.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kiarie was found with injuries that “were not consistent” with the minor crash with the median wall.

The Associated Press reported Sunday that troopers at the scene reported finding the woman “with a rope around her neck.”

A child safety seat was found in the vehicle, so detectives went to Kiarie’s home and found a 1-year-old boy by himself. He was taken into custody by the Arizona Department of Child Safety.

US warns Kenyans over fake marriages, says they won’t be allowed to fly out

Published

on

The US embassy in Nairobi on Monday issued a warning to Kenyans getting duped into fake marriages to acquire a visa.

Through their official social media pages, the embassy advised caution in the event somebody offers to get you a green card using dubious means.

“Has anyone ever told you they can get a green card for you? Don’t believe them! They are lying and just trying to steal your money. Don’t believe them when they say you can have a fake marriage and still get your green card.

“If you apply with a fake marriage, you will get caught and you will not get your green card. You will become permanently ineligible to ever go to the United States, and you will never be able to get a U.S. visa or a green card,” the embassy warned.

Kenyans were further urged to apply for a visa or the green card lottery by themselves.

The statement conveyed: “You don’t need to use a fixer to apply for the diversity visa or green card lottery. You can do it yourself and pay the required fee.”

The embassy stated that one should only apply through the Embassy’s official website.

“If you know about anyone promising they can get a green card for you if you enter into a fake marriage, go to the police and report them. You should also report them to the U.S. Embassy,” the statement concluded.

Earlier last week, US Ambassador to Kenya Robert Godec announced that the United States government was gearing up to fight fake news in Kenya adding that it had eroded confidence in Kenya’s real news media.

Speaking during an interview, Godec stated: “Fake news is being weaponized. It’s undermining democracy in Kenya.”

He further remarked: “We’re not asking them to believe any particular thing. We’re just urging people not to take everything they see on their phone via WhatsApp as the truth because it may not be.”
