No honeymoon for Senator’s wife

Published

on

Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata has explained why he didn’t take his newly wed wife for a honeymoon holiday.

Irungu wedded his long-time girlfriend, 28-year-old Mary, last weekend at the exclusive Thika Greens Golf Course.

Speaking to Heads Up, he revealed that they didn’t go for honeymoon since he had to lecture at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA)!

“I didn’t see any need for a honeymoon. In any case, I didn’t want to miss class and delay my students from graduating,” the 48-year-old lawmaker said.

Kang’ata further revealed that it took him two weeks to prepare the invite-only wedding that was attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka, Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen, Mutula Kilonzo Jnr, Peter Kenneth and Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria were some of the invited guests.

Comedian and actor Joseph Kinuthia popularly known as ‘Omosh’ from his role in Citizen TV’s program Tahidi High has opened up about how he landed the role and how much he was being paid per episode.

Before joining the program, Omosh was a garbage collector but in 2005, his elder sister Naomi Kamau told him to try out for the Tahidi Auditions.

“I worked as a garbage truck driver for five years until 2000,”  he said in the interview with Nation.

“Naomi always told me I had something special as an actor as she had watched me since childhood…I became ‘Omosh,’ a smart-aleck, know-it-all watchman and with my years working in the garbage dumps in the slums of Nairobi, I could not have been better suited for this part.” 

Salary

While many actors in Kenyan have always started with a low amount, Omosh was lucky to be paid a considerable amount of money after enlisting.

“I was only getting paid 3,000 per episode, but I was giving the part the very best I could.” he said.
