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.

The former Citizen TV, who has been keeping her relationship under wraps, is yet to reveal the identity of the man who has swept her off her feet in case there’s any.

In a recent interview, she said that she wasn’t romantically involved with Eric and they were just co-parenting.

‘I KEEP TELLING HIM [Eric] WE KINDA MESSED UP, CROSSING THE FRIENDSHIP LINE. WE WERE VERY GOOD FRIENDS FROM THE BEGINNING AND I DON’T KNOW WHY WE THOUGHT, THIS COULD WORK BUT THEN IF WE WERE ABLE TO COLLECT OURSELVES AGAIN AND BECOME FRIENDS, I DON’T THINK I WOULD EVER CROSS THAT LINE.’

Allan Aaron, theamed US-based Kenyan Akorino gospel singer, has reportedly remarried after “abandoning his first wife and kids.”

Through a Facebook post, Aaron revealed he got married on January 2nd.

He however but did not reveal the identity of his new spouse or share her photos.

Recently, his ex wife Annie Shiku finally opened up about how he allegedly dumped her and their children after he left for the US.

She said Aaron cut communication with her barely three months after he landed in Boston.

The ‘Kiriro’ hitmaker was previously married to Ann Shiko and the two were blessed with four children, but is alleged that he abandoned his family a few months after he moved to the US to perform and minister the word of God.

“He started acting funny. He would not pick up my calls and whenever he did, he had very unkind words for me. After a while, there was no communication as he had blocked me,” she said.

She said he also stopped sending money, resulting in her struggling to raise school fees for their kids, rent, food, and other basic needs.

A year later, Aaron returned to the country without her knowledge and the two accidentally met at a funeral at Lang’ata Cemetery. After the burial, Aaron allegedly went to his parent’s home in Elburgon, Nakuru County.

“Together with my children, we waited and waited. He didn’t come. We saw him after two weeks when he came to pick up his belongings. He took his clothes and even the TV that our kids used to watch,” she recalled.

Shiko said her attempts to know what transpired were futile as Aaron would not listen to her even when church elders tried to intervene.

“I tried to beg him for forgiveness for things I could have done without knowing I was hurting him but all was in vain. Up to date, I don’t know the reason he left,” she said.

Shiko, who is also a musician, currently sells cars at a showroom along Kiambu Road.

She has revealed that  she is ready to remarry “if God sends me a suitor.”

Efforts to get a comment from Aaron proved futile with his phone going unanswered.

‘I don’t want to bring another baby to the world,’ Senator’s wife cries

Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura’s wife Nelius Mukami says the loss of two children from her triplets changed her perspective of life.

Speaking to Massawe Japanni on Radio Jambo, Nelius, who doubles up as a writer and an entrepreneur, says she is still afraid to become pregnant again.

“I watched my children for three months in ICU and then two died, leaving me a broken person. That experience changed me as a mum and it took away my innocence of thinking that things will happen as you wish just because you are doing what you are supposed to do.”

Nelius added that to date she looks at a pregnant woman who ends up giving birth normally and blames her body.

“I ask myself, what did I do wrong? I blame my body for failing me since as a woman, you are supposed to carry a pregnancy and give birth but now, you see mine did not succeed.”

She says she is afraid to go through the experience again.

“I watched my baby suffer so much and I do not want to bring another baby to the world and suffer the same way my two babies suffered in hospital.”

Baby Njiru

Nelius’ son is four years old, and she says he is fine, apart from some delayed speech, which the doctor says is nothing to worry about.

“I tell people not to compare children as they are all different. I become very harsh to some people who try to compare my son since it’s me who understands his journey,” she said.

“Some are very mean. Some even ask me if we do not give him food. I mean, he was 1kg at birth and so he is doing so well now. People should stop commenting on other people’s babies.”

Baby Njiru

Although there is fear, Nelius says there is the confidence that she will be more prepared than that time.

Speaking about grief, Nelius said it is the last compassion you can give someone.

“I will grieve them for the rest of my life without pretending they were not there. I will not refuse to mention them and I celebrate them every day.”
