US-based Kenyan man holds 3 Pre-weddings in quick succession, fiancée says wedding must go on

A Kenyan woman in Seattle, Washington, who has been at the center of a heated online debate has come out to openly declare her total support for her fiancé, who is being accused of scamming Kenyans by holding three Pre-wedding fundraisers within a few months: two in Maryland and Massachusetts and an upcoming one in Washington State.

In an exclusive interview with Kenya Satellite News Network Thursday, Pastor Serah Ndirangu said she is ready to get married to the man and “those casting doubts on the event are mere detractors whose opinions don’t really matter.”

She said she is well aware of what happened between the previous fiancée  and the Reverend and added that the upcoming pre-wedding was her own idea.

“Why do people like poking their noses in other peoples’ affairs?” she wondered.

“We really don’t care what they are saying…this is our life and no one is being forced to contribute a penny,” she said.

Our  pre-wedding will take place on November 10th “come rain, come shine,” she added.

She was referring to those who have raised concern over the number of times the man in question has “fallen in love.”

The debate is about one Reverend Stanley Mwea who held two pre-wedding fundraisers in May this year, in Baltimore and Boston. The woman he intended to marry was Susan Kangethe, but as fate would have it, differences arose before they could tie the knot and the wedding was called off.

Soon after that, Rev Mwea then fell in love with another woman, Ms Serah Ndirangu, and the two planned a third pre-wedding, slated for November 10th this year.

This did not go down very well with some Kenyans in the Diaspora, many of whom took to social media to make their position on the matter known. Some of them said they feel “used” after having made monetary contributions to the previous fundraisers.

This comes at a time when Kenyans in different cities in the US have been complaining of rising instances where, after pre-weddings are held, the “love birds” vanish or relocate to different states, never to be seen again.

Now Pastor Serah Ndirangu says the wedding will take place in Seattle, Washington in early December. “The church elders and my fellow gospel musicians have encouraged me to go on with the arrangements and there is no looking back. God will fight on our behalf,” she adds.

However, some people, mostly Kenyans, were skeptical:

Here are some of the comments:

    “Pastor” Serah? BULLS**T!! People are poking their noses in Tour business? U made it their business by asking for their money! Since alleged “Pastor” Stanley collected money from two previous pre-weddings and the wedding didn’t take place, it means no wedding expenses were borne. And I doubt he refunded the donors. It follows that he still has the money and should use it for your upcoming nuptials.

    But as others have said here; if you know about this issue and you still go ahead and contribute, shauri yako; it’s your money. But I feel for those who don’t know know this story; that they are being scammed. With pastors like these, who needs enemies…

Minister caught on video masturbating says clip was for his wife

Published

on

South Africa’s embattled Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba, has resigned two weeks after a video of him masturbating was widely circulated online.

A statement from the presidency said Mr Gigaba – a senior member of the governing African Natuional Congress (ANC) – was “stepping aside for the sake of our country and the movement to which he belongs”.

Mr Gigaba had accused South Africa’s security services of hacking his phone and releasing the 13-second video which, he says, was for his wife.

The 47-year-old has courted controversy in recent years over allegations that he used his powerful roles in various ministerial portfolios to assist the controversial Gupta business family.

The Indian-born businessmen were widely linked to several corruption scandals under ex-President Jacob Zuma’s administration.

All parties, including Mr Gigaba, deny any wrongdoing.

Many questioned Mr Gigaba’s fitness to hold office, saying his reputation had been tarnished.

In recent weeks, the questions grew louder, first over a Constitutional Court ruling which upheld an earlier finding that he lied under oath while giving evidence about a government contract.

This was followed by a recommendation by the public protector that he be disciplined for ethical breaches.

Opposition parties had been pushing President Cyril Ramaphosa to sack him, and they have welcomed his resignation.

Trump has deported over 100 Kenyans

Published

on

At least 104 Kenyans have been deported from the United States by President Donald Trump’s administration between 2017 and early 2018 with US’ Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) revealing that the leading reasons for deportation of Kenyan nationals include assault, forgery, domestic violence, fraud and drink driving.

The figures are found in the latest report by ICE .

Of the 44,435 immigrants deported from the US since 2003, 2,160 are Kenyans, representing 5 percent. A total of 226 Kenyans were deported from the US in 2010, the highest in one year.

The data also shows that 67 Kenyans are currently detained in US jails for flouting various immigration and customs regulations.

African countries with high number of persons detained over immigration violations are Cameroon (294), Eriteria (257), Nigeria (250), Somalia (205), Liberia (135), Guinea (113), Ghana (103), DRC (101), Gambia (83) and Ethiopia (69).

MICHELLE OBAMA: My daughters were conceived through IVF after miscarriage

Published

on

In what is perhaps the most candid revelation  about herself, former US first lady Michelle Obama  is digging deep into some very personal issues; from a miscarriage to using in-vitro fertilization to conceive her daughters, to marriage counselling.

All this is laid bare in her new book; Becoming.

“I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them,” Obama told ABC News in an interview.

“We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.”

Fertility treatments allowed her to conceive daughters Malia, now 20, and Sasha, 17.

“It turns out that even two committed go-getters with a deep love and robust work ethic can’t will themselves into being pregnant,” she writes.

“We had to do IVF,” she told ABC, in excerpts of an interview that will air in full on Sunday.

She revisits the thrill of her romance with Barack, which began when she was his advisor at a Chicago law firm, describing it as a “toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfillment, wonder.”

But she admits the couple on occasion turned to counselling, where they “learned how to talk out” problems.

In the 426-page book, Obama lays out her complicated relationship with the political world that made her famous. But her memoir is not a Washington read full of gossip and political score-settling — though she does lay bare her deep, quaking disdain for Trump, who she believes put her family’s safety at risk with his vehement promotion of the false birther conspiracy theory.

In the book, America’s first black first lady says she can “never forgive” Donald Trump for questioning her husband’s American citizenship, saying the president and other “birthers” put her family at risk, in her hotly anticipated new memoir.

Obama also says she was surprised that so many American women voted for the “misogynist” Trump over Hillary Clinton, “an exceptionally qualified female candidate,” in the 2016 election.

The book, Becoming, hits stores on Tuesday. Obama, 54, will head out on a multi-city arena tour to promote the memoir, with celebrity friends like Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon tapped to moderate the events.

It is one of the most awaited books about US politics in years, and Obama does not mince words about her husband’s successor, and his involvement in promoting the idea that Barack Obama was born abroad.

“The whole [birther] thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed,” she writes, in excerpts of the book published by ABC News and The Washington Post.

“But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks,” she adds.

“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls?

“Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.”

Obama also said her body “buzzed with fury” after hearing the “Access Hollywood” tape on which Trump bragged about being able to grab women with impunity.

Trump did not waste time in responding.

“Michelle Obama got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always insist you come up with controversy. I’ll give you some back,” he told reporters at the White House before heading on a trip to France.

“I’ll never forgive him for what he did to our United States military by not funding it properly. (…) What he did to our military made this country unsafe.”

Upon Trump’s election, the Obamas faded from the spotlight for a time, retreating to their mansion in an upscale area of the US capital and refraining from overtly political statements.

That silence has now passed, with the former president campaigning actively for Democratic candidates in the run-up to the midterm elections and the former first lady speaking at get-out-the-vote rallies.

Michelle Obama will have more opportunity to speak out as her book tour, which begins in her hometown Chicago, rolls on to New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Boston and other cities.
