See what tickled President Uhuru at Kamaru’s burial



During the burial of Benga icon Joseph Kamaru on Friday, a woman caught the attention of the entire nation after tickling President Uhuru Kenyatta’s funny bone.

Catherine Muthoni – the late singe’s sister- was the centre of attention in Muranga after walking to President Uhuru’s side and exchanging warm pleasantries including a hearty laugh with the head of state.

Turns out that Muthoni and President Kenyatta are no strangers they met over 50 years ago.

In an Interview with Citizen Tv, Muthoni revealed what she told the president that tickled him so much to the amusement of many at the burial in Muthithi.

She said that she reminded Uhuru their childhood memories when he would ‘steal’ sodas and give her whenever she visited State House with her late brother, Kamaru.

Nilimwambia wewe unakumbuka vile ulikuwa unaenda kuniibia tu soda, akachekaaa. Na vile kwenu kuna soda unaenda kuchukulia mtu kamoja kamoja (I reminded him how he used to ‘steal’ sodas for me, the way little children always do. That’s what amused him),” said Muthoni.

President Uhuru has since officially invited Muthoni to the house on the hill next week in the company of other Benga musicians.

CS Amina Mohamed booed off stage at Koroga Festival – VIDEO



Sports and Culture Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed got a shocking reception on Sunday afternoon at the 28th Koroga Festival at the Bomas of Kenya.

The CS had been called by the day’s emcee to address the fully-packed crowd who had turned up for the concert.

But the crowd appeared hostile to her as they gesticulated to her to go away.

The concert had been endorsed by the Sports, Culture and Heritage ministry and it was the first time a senior representative from the executive arm of government has declared support for the event.

Before walking off the stage, the Amina repeatedly asked the crowd if they were having fun.

The event dubbed ‘The World Groove Edition’ showcased Rhumba icons M’bilia Bel and Kanda Bongoman as well as Steve Kay, Emma Jalamo and other local artists.

The event, which is usually held outdoors, was moved into the auditorium due to the heavy downpour which has been experienced in Nairobi and across the country.

The decision was made after the grounds at the Bomas of Kenya were rendered unusable.

Marriage at 87 has given my life more years of happiness



Rev John Lewa, 91, is a living testimony that old age with all its attendant glitches can be tamed into a near normal phase in life. The nonagenarian, who goes about his daily chores unaided, reads the Bible without glasses and manually tends his farm, surprised many when he remarried at 87.

Rev Lewa still has strong teeth to eat anything he fancies, even roast meat and maize. His dental formula is amazingly sturdy and healthy-looking.“I have lost six out of 16 back teeth,” he says of his molars and premolars, flashing a smile that displays a white set of un-breached incisors and canines.

He adds: “The rest of my teeth are intact.”“Conventional toothpastes cannot match charcoal and salt in dental care. I have no cavities,” he says in anticipation of my next question.

He enumerates the secrets of healthy ageing as active daily routine, eating healthy and avoiding reckless indulgences. He cites alcohol, cigarettes and promiscuity among habits he jettisoned long ago.“I last tasted alcohol in my youth at a push from my father and I vomited until he sympathised with me. The last time I ever smoked was in 1958 before I went to study theology at African Brotherhood Church (ABC) Divinity school, Mitaboni, Machakos in 1959,” says Lewa.

“A happy marriage prolongs life. I lived with Sella, my first wife and mother to my nine children continuously for 51 years until she died in 2012.

What followed were three turbulent years during which I languished in loneliness until 2015 when I met and married the Rev Phyllis Munini. She has since spruced me up. You can see that I do not look groggy.”What prompted Ms Munini to accept him at 87? ”Call it an act of God,” says Mzee Lewa with a grin that eases his wrinkles.

“She had initially turned down my request, conveyed through two African Inland Church (AIC) pastors who were friends to my family. She was 59, a nun in the church who had committed her life to God’s service without distraction until I came into her shadow.” “I also had an input,” chips in his son, Prof Peter Lewa. “Mzee had cautioned me, his only living son, that I would not escape blame if he died of loneliness. I helped identify Phyllis,” he brags to hearty laughter from us all.

Phyllis, with an aerie chuckle, recalls: “Back home after setting my eyes on him for the first time, I went into prayer to tell God that I did not want ‘that old man’. But he continued calling me. He was not the type to surrender midstream.

Vision from God

“Then one night as I slept, I saw a vision. God told me, ‘I delayed you for the old man. He is the one I have chosen to be your husband,’” recollects Phyllis adding: “I had no option but to say, ‘yes’ and the rest is history. We have lived happily together since.”In AIC nuns are free to marry.“I was over the moon when she accepted my hand. Without hesitation, I took cattle and goats to her parents and cooked in keeping with the Kamba tradition, followed by a fabulous wedding ceremony at Masue African Brotherhood Church (ABC) on October 17, 2015,” says Rev Lewa proudly, describing the event as “unalloyed miracle”.

“It was my second miracle since my late wife and I narrowly escaped death in a horrific bus accident on the Kitui- Machakos road that claimed 65 lives, including those of our two daughters, in 1963,” he says, sadness permeating his face.On his enduring oomph and energy at a time his few living peers have withered away like singed flowers, Rev Lewa says herbs and a disciplined lifestyle have played an important role.

“I am a herbal expert. I have helped many people surmount health challenges and have not forgotten myself. Hence, I am not shy to declare myself as fit as a fiddle in my physical and mental faculties,” he says with laughter.Prof Lewa says his father’s health has improved tremendously in the four years that he has been married to Phyllis. “They are both reverends and true birds of a feather. Dad is proof that elderly folks need trusted partners to walk with deeper into their sunset,” he says.
