Pastor Godfrey Migwi who ministers at of House of Hope in Kayole has decided to act on his own and rehabilitate a public road using his own money.

The preacher has made a name for himself on social media for critiquing the government. Migwi recently called on president Uhuru Kenyatta to desist from taking Chinese loans.

Pastor Migwi has now decided to rehabilitate a public road after he got  tired of calling on the county government to fix roads around his neighborhood in Nairobi.

The city preacher has been imploring the county government to fix poor roads but since his calls fell on deaf ears he decided to dig deep into his own pockets to fix the roads himself.

Making our Home area a better place bila CDF ama msaada wa serikali for the glory of God, msaada wangu watoka kwa Yesu. You can use what you’ve to make your neighbours happy. Change starts with you. One step at a time. You can’t lead people with a greedy heart,” wrote Pastor Godfrey Migwi on Facebook.

A group of American high school students have launched a campaign to stop a push by President Donald Trump government to deport their Kenyan teacher.

Teacher Anthony Wanjiru has been denied a new H-1B visa. He is expected to return to Kenya by March 7, 2019.

According to reports by Nairobi News, he has been in the US since 2011 when he won a scholarship to study for masters.

He has been working at Valor Christian High School in Colorado.

So why do the students want him to remain in America? They claim that Mr Wanjiru is goodhearted and always has an ear to listen to them.

In a show aired in a local Denver television channel, one of the students described Mr Wanjiru as “a caring man.”

The students have now kicked off a campaign under the hashtag #AnthonysVisa and all they want is their teacher to remain in the United States.

Kenyan woman battling cancer in US appeals for help as doctors say she has a few days to live

Published

on

BY BMJ MURIITHI

A US-based Kenyan woman has touched the hearts of many with her story. Zipporah Kamau who was diagnosed with one of the most devastating forms of cancer last year and has been going through Chemotherapy in Seattle, Washington, says the doctors recently told her that she had only three days to live.

Her story is heartbreaking to say the least. In a tragic twist of fate, soon after she arrived in the US in November 2017, her son was struck by a car and died in Nairobi.

When she and her then husband attended the funeral, he passport got lost and she was forced to apply for travel documents to get back to the US.

She stayed in Atlanta, Georgia, for a while before relocating to Seattle to live with her friend, only identified as Beth. It was then that she got sick and was diagnosed with Lymphoma, an aggressive form of cancer that begins in infection-fighting cells of the immune system, called lymphocytes. Now the doctors tell her that she may need to go through dialysis as her kidneys are failing.

“I have gone through 9 rounds of Chemo and now they have told me that I have to start another round of palliative chemotherapy but I don’t think I can do it any more. My body is totally ruined by the previous round of Chemo,” she tells Jeremy Damaris of Kikuyu Diaspora TV in an interview.

“They recently said I had only three days to live and that my kidneys are affected..but I know I can live longer than that in Jesus mighty name,” she adds.

Looking emaciated and weak, she appeals to well wishers to come to her aid and help her to at least pay her house rent which has accumulated to over $4,000 as she has not done so since June last year.

“I live with a friend where I am supposed to pay $600 a month but because of my condition, I have’t been able to meet my end of the bargain for the last six months. My roommate is a very nice lady but she can only do so much,” says Zipporah as she fights off tears.

During the interview, she sends a message to her children back in Kenya. “Whatever happens, just know that I love you all very much,” she says, after calling each of them by name. She wishes she could pay fees for her children who are in college. “I hope to see you some day when I get stronger,” she tells them.
