VIDEO: Anne Waiguru reveals the properties she “actually owns”

Published

on

Kirinyaga County Governor Anne Waiguru has denied owning any building in Nairobi’s CBD.

Speaking to Jeff Koinange on JKL Show Wednesday, Waiguru laughed of the allegations while welcoming President Uhuru’s calls for lifestyle audit on public servants in a bid to curb rampant corruption.

“There have been lots of stories on social media about what I own. I don’t own anything on Luthuli Avenue,” said Waiguru.

The first-time governor also denied owning several other properties among them a lakeside hotel in Taita, an estate in Karen, a building on Ngong Road, a mall, as well as matatus and buildings in Murang’a County.

She also refuted claims that she owns 200 acres of land in Nanyuki while claiming “I don’t even own a quarter acre anywhere.”

Properties owned by Waiguru

During the interview, Governor Waiguru however admitted to owning several properties among them a house in Kihingo Village, Kitusuru where she currently resides.

“I also own a house in Runda, which I had before joining government,” she revealed.

Waiguru further stated that she owns property at Mlolongo along Mombasa Road which she developed using a bank loan.

“I took a loan of Sh50 million in 2013,” said the governor, while revealing that she’s paying the loan.

Contradictory statement

Contradicting her earlier statement on not owning even a quarter acre piece of land anywhere, Waiguru said that she owns two half acre pieces of land, one in Lukenya and another with a rentable space in Sagana.

Lifestyle audit

Regarding President Uhuru’s calls for a lifestyle audit on all government officials and their families earlier this year, Waiguru stated that EACC officials had already conducted the audit on her.

“EACC has done my lifestyle audit and I don’t mind if they make it public…The people who are corrupt imagine everybody is doing exactly what they are doing,” she said, distancing herself from corruption allegations.

Fresh NYS probe

Yesterday, a lobby group held demonstrations in Nairobi yesterday demanding a fresh probe into the first National Youth Service (NYS) scandal in which over Sh700 million was lost.

Bunge la Walipa Ushuru also demanded for a lifestyle audit on all those who were adversely mentioned.

Media Poaching : Blow to K24 as political reporters join Citizen TV

Published

on

K24 has suffered yet another blow after political affairs reporters Jane Chemutai Goin and Apollo Kamau ditched the Mediamax Network-owned station for Citizen TV.

The move leaves the station with virtually no political journalists after Duncan Khaemba, Anders Ihachi and Chris Thairu were shown the door in November 2015 when the media house retrenched about 70 journalists. Khaemba and Thairu were later hired by KTN.

Senior news anchor Richard Kagoe, who also used to report on politics and current affairs, also quit to join BBC in August this year.

Apart from covering political events, the two also doubled as parliamentary reporters.

At Citizen TV, the two are set to bolster its political coverage and also fill the void left by Jacque Maribe, who was banned by High Court judge James Wakiaga from appearing on TV as part of the bail sanctions that saw her released from remand after she was charged alongside her fiancee Joseph Irungu for the murder of business lady Monica Kimani.

Goin started her career as a reporter at Capital FM before joining K24. On the other hand, Kamau previously worked with KBC and TBN/Family Media before joining K24 in September 2007 as a current affairs/political reporter.

K24 also recently lost rising business reporter Brenda Kerubo.

Why celebrity couple DJ Mo and Size 8 no longer post about their lives on YouTube

Published

on

Last year, Size 8 and DJ Mo announced that they have launched a Vlog dubbed the The Muraya aimed at documenting their life.

The Vlog, which was on YouTube, went on to impress Kenyans as many got to see the life of the two and their daughter.

But after just several months, they stopped posting and never bothered to communicate to fans why.

A curious fan took to social media to ask DJ Mo why they are no longer posting on YouTube.

According to Mo, they moved from YouTube after landing a deal with streaming service Viusasa which has been buying locally produced visual content.

It’s not clear though why Mo and Size 8 haven’t been promoting the show on their social media pages.

My wife was cheating, Shaffie says on embarrassing Nax-Vegas photos

Published

on

Kiss FM radio host Shaffie Weru has opened up on an ugly incident that left him embarrassed during the Easter holiday in 2012.

Opening up for a second time since then, Shaffie said he was going through a lot during that time.

During the Easter weekend during the NaxVegas a drunk Shaffie was frog-matched away from the venue by bounces for causing a raucous.

Many people don’t understand what I was going through then- Shaffie comes clean on embarrassing Nax-Vegas incident

Rumours stated that he was hitting on a chick who was accompanied by his boyfriend, and the boyfriend felt ‘insulted’ and so some confrontation began, and the bouncers came in and dragged him out of the venue.

Shaffie disclosed that he was at a bad place emotionally at the time of that event and would get himself super drunk to forget his issues with baby mama Joan.

“Many people don’t understand what I was going through then. But I know what I was going through then. At that time nilikuwa na beef mbaya sana na mama Nia 2 to 3 years in our relationship. There were rumours that she was cheating, I know people look at me and think I can’t get played, I get played. I was living with her and I have given my all. I had just split from Debbie Asila and had gotten myself in this situation. The grass is not always greener on the other side, it was semi-arid. Things were not going right, we were not feeling each other, and there was a lot of pressure. She was way younger than me, she did what she did and I did what I did,” Shaffie said on the Chipukeezy Show.

He added that he turned to drinking to easy the pain.

“I threw myself into partying because out there, there was acceptance, I was hiding my grief and everything. I was going through a lot and I fell into alcohol and other stuff it was crazy bro,” Shaffie explained.
