Upon learning that President Uhuru Kenyatta had travelled to La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, where he will attend the G7 Summit, some Kenyans took to social media to plead with him to give embattled lawyer Miguna Miguna an air ride back home.

Miguna, who is currently based in Ontario, Canada, has been deported twice over a row with the Immigration Department on his citizenship status.

James Odhiambo wrote on Twitter: “Tafadhali mhurumie ndugu Miguna. Mpatie lift arudi kwao.”

John Kaimenyi wrote on Facebook: “God works in mysterious ways…Miguna had asked the gvt to buy him a ticket lakini sasa watarudi na Prezo.”

Cate Ndegwa tweeted: “In the spirit of handshake, take your brother home with you. Na wewe Miguna u-behave kuanzia leo.”

In the past, the Kenyan government has maintained that Miguna is not a Kenyan citizen but the controversial lawyer has has insisted that he never lost nor renounced his Kenyan citizenship despite incessant such claims from varied quarters.

The opposition activist, in an interview with a local television station, maintained that he was forced into exile in 1987, and his then passport confiscated.

President Kenyatta’s visit to Canada to attend this year’s G7 Summit follows Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s invitation when the two leaders met in April at Lancaster House, London, on the margins of the Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) meeting in the United Kingdom capital.

This is the second G7 summit that the Kenyan leader will be addressing.

Last year, Kenyatta was among the African leaders invited to the G7 summit, which took place at Taormina on the Italian Island of Sicily.

This year’s G7 Summit in Quebec, which will take place on Friday and Saturday, will focus on economic growth, climate change and security.

Kenyatta will address the summit on issues of the blue economy and the environmental management.

Kenya is among the first African countries to effect the ban on plastics.

The G7 nations include, Canada, United States of America, United Kingdom, German, France, Italy and Japan.

Speaking ahead of the summit, Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Cabinet Secretary, Monica Juma said the G7 Summit is crucial to Kenya, as it will focus on the issues that are critical to President Kenyatta’s ‘Big Four’ agenda.

She said the Summit, which is one of the exclusive meetings of the global leaders, would among things discuss gender inequality, equity, climate change, security and the blue economy.

The CS pointed out that the Summit will discuss on how to bridge the inequality gap by looking for innovative ways of ensuring women participate more on productive activities.

“For a long time, work policies have never really been favourable to women. Whether it is young mothers, whether it is women that need to train, it has been the question of balancing between work and family life,” said CS Juma.

She said the Summit will seek to come up with innovative technology to involve more women as they are more than half the population of the world.

“Gender equity has been a matter of campaign for a long time and we all know this is a fundamental issue of human right, the involvement of women to participate in society’s activities. It is also a matter that makes economic sense because women are more than half of the world’s population,” she said.

Adding: It is important that we include half of the population in productive activities. So the whole issue of gender equality is the primary agenda of the Canadian Government as the chair of the summit.”

CS Juma pointed out that peace and security are also key to President Kenyatta, and the Summit would delve on them because no meaningful development would take place without a secure environment.

“The matter of peace and security has been key, particularly in view of the new threats. Threats about terrorism, radicalization and transnational crimes – whether it is drugs, or human trafficking,” said the Foreign Affairs CS.

Apart from attending the G7 Summit, President Kenyatta will also hold talks with the Canadian Prime Minister.

Ambassador Juma said Kenya and Canada will be co-hosting the Blue Economy Conference to be held in Mombasa in November this year and the two leaders will consult widely on the same.

She also said President Kenyatta will be talking on the environmental management as Kenya is a global leader, having been among the first African countries in the world to do a plastic ban.

Published

Political commentator Tony Gachoka has called out Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi after asking him to stop his little idle talk and help the Jubilee government make Kenya great.

In his response, Gachoka accused Ahmednasir of aiding individuals caught in corruption scandals, as he went ahead to mentioned some of the people the lawyer has represented in corruption related cases before.

“Senior Cousel you aide & abet corruption actors; Ruto fanatics call you a ‘great mind’ YET you feature in every corruption case. AA @ahmednasirlaw you represented Waiguru, Waluke, Deepak Kamani of Angloleasing & Weston – yet you can dare call me ‘idle talk’. A corruption enabler!” tweeted Gachoka.

Tony Gachoka’s words came after Ahmednasir Abdullahi asked him to play his part in nation building by starting a small business and creating jobs for young people, instead being idle.

“Tony…play your part in BUILDING the Nation. Start some BUSINESS, Create JOBS FOR THE YOUTH…and stop this little idle talk…KENYA is great country… HELP JUBILEE make Kenya GREAT…” said SC Ahmednasir.

His words were in response to Mr. Gachoka’s words which claimed that Deputy President William Ruto is no longer a billionaire.

“My fren AA @ahmednasirlaw habari ndugu. Would I be wrong if i stopped calling DP Ruto a billionaire and changed it to millionaire … since am told his cash reserves are drying up pretty fast… Kindly advise. TG Cc. @WehliyeMohamed @DonaldBKipkorir @kipmurkomen,” Gachoka had tweeted.

Corazon Kwamboka on how she beat disease to conceive

Published

on

Corazon Kwamboka is one of the most famous socialites on social media.

The law graduate, however, is not known for her legal work. Her fame arises not only from the scintillating photos she posts on her social media pages showing places she has travelled, but also from the way she presents her body in a way that leaves little to imagination.

This week, she was one of the trending topics on social media after revealing that she is pregnant after several unsuccessful attempts.

She posted to her 636,000 Instagram followers how endometriosis, which she was diagnosed with last year, had dimmed her hopes of ever becoming pregnant.The beauty gushed about how she can’t wait to hold her baby, showing off her baby bump.

In the post addressed to her unborn child, she wrote: “If someone told me January last year that I’d be feeling you kick deep in my belly at the sound of your father’s voice, I’d most definitely think they were deranged! Endometriosis had crippled my dreams of birthing a child. But here we are; a pleasant and welcome surprise. I can’t wait to meet you, hold you and teach you everything I know.”

Endometriosis is a disease where womb tissue grows else-where in a woman’s body, such as the fallopian tubes, ovaries, around the pelvis and sometimes the lungs, causing extreme pain and sometimes infertility.

Gynaecologist Wanjiku Ndung’u told the Nation recently that if the multiplying cells grow elsewhere apart from the uterus, they cause infl ammation. It be-comes painful for the woman during periods because menses have a restrained fl ow and thus they form cysts that cause fric-tion and hence the pain.The cause of endometriosis is not known, according to Dr Joachim Osur, a sexual medicine expert.

“There are many theories. This also means that the treatment is very difficult because eff orts to suppress its symptoms with drugs also interfere with natural processes of the uterus,” he wrote in the Daily Nation re-cently.

Corazon is rumoured to be dating a popular fi tness enthusiast, Mr Frankie Kiarie.

Before allegedly hooking up with Corazon, Frankie and YouTuber Maureen Waititu enjoyed a five-year relationship that saw them bear two boys. The couple even came up with a thriving YouTube channel ‘Alphabeta’ that saw fans refer to them as the ‘You-Tuber couple’.

Frankie, speaking on their break-up, said that they had irreconcilable differences that made them separate.

“The point of this is to let you know that people say some things to be funny or relevant on Twitter or Instagram, but someone’s day-to-day life is being affected. We are not in a good place yet. I have known Maureen for six years and loved her for every one of those years. That kind of love doesn’t fade. Sometimes things don’t happen the way you expect them to. Our main focus now is the kids and creating a healthy environment for them,” Frankie said.

The two are rumoured to have been keeping the pregnancy a secret for months now, but sources say the lawyer is in her second trimester. In her post, Corazon said she was glad that she chose a man whom she is sure will be a good father to her unborn child because she had seen him raise his other children.

“To the baby’s father; I couldn’t have chosen a better person to do this with. I see the good in you and how you raise your own and I know my child will be loved eternally,” she wrote.Endometriosis affects more than 170 million women across the globe. The most common symptoms are pain and menstrual irregularities.

Effective treatments, such as hormones and excision surgery, are avail-able. Surgically removed cysts typically look like balls of fl esh.

Corazon had earlier revealed that she intends to be a mother in 2020, having struggled with ovarian cysts, which was successfully removed sometime last year through surgery.Corazon, who was admitted to the Bar in 2016, said that her status as a socialite has been a major hindrance to her law practice.

“It made me not practise law. I feel that at some point, I was being misjudged in a way so I pulled back from the law. I didn’t even want to go look for a job be-cause I was scared ‘how will they even give me the job?’ and also it affected a lot of my relationships since I became Corazon Kwamboka the socialite,” she said in an earlier interview.Four years ago, a man claim-ing to be Corazon’s father accused her of breaking their family while urging her to focus on her law career.“My very bright girl should stop this socialite thing and practise law.

She can be an amazing lawyer. I also realise she is over 18 and can’t make career choices for her. I pray for her every day,” said the man, Mr Osmond Sambu Okero.

Police questioned on bodies found in car at their station

Published

on

A post-mortem examination of the bodies of two children discovered in a wrecked car parked at the Athi River Police station on Wednesday evening is set to be done tomorrow at the Chiromo Funeral Home.

The examination is part of efforts by detectives to piece together the last moments of best friends Alvina Mutheu and Henry Jacktone, whose murders have shocked the country.Alvina, 3, and Jacktone, 4, went missing on June 11, and in a bizarre twist of events their bodies were discovered at the very place their parents reported their disappearance, raising questions on who could have snuck their bodies into a police station, and why.Some of the answers the post-mortem exam could provide include Alvina and Jacktone’s cause and date of death, and whether there was any form of struggle.

Their bodies were decomposed by the time they were discovered on the floor of a car parked at a yard inside Athi River Police Station.

The speed of decomposition, how-ever, varies depending on the environment, and the heat inside a parked car can make a body decompose faster.

“We only found skeletons and it was not easy to tell them apart,” Clifton Odhiambo, who is Jacktone’s father, told the Sunday Nation.

Preliminary investigations show that the Toyota Belta, registration number KCT 510X, in which the two bodies were found was not broken into.

Keys belonging to impounded cars are usually kept inside a safe under the responsibility of officers on duty.

The keys can only be released if the impounded car has been officially released and a note issued to whoever has come to claim the vehicle. It is puzzling how someone accessed a car parked inside a police station, which is a security installation, put the bodies of two children inside a car, and left without anyone noticing.

Detectives have already questioned a number of officers from the station. It is said that a man claiming to be the owner of the car discovered the bodies when he went to collect it on Wednesday.

The car, which is now a scene of crime, has been parked at the station since March 5, when it was involved in a road accident.

Athi River police boss Catherine Ringera on Thursday said the car had nothing inside when it was brought to the station.

“We inspected it and other than the spare wheel and a wheel jack, there was nothing else in it,” she said.Detectives have now summoned the owner of the car plus the man who is said to have come to the station wanting to have it released to him.

A search on the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) system shows that the car is registered to a Ms. Peris Ngugi.Parents of the two children are also set to record fresh statements with the police.

They claim they had received a number of calls from unknown people after their children disappeared, asking them for ransom.None of these claims were reported at the Athi River Police Station, apart from the fact that Alvina and Jacktone had disappeared
