A video of Citizen TV anchor Jacque Maribe and her father Mwangi Maribe  in court having an adorable father daughter moment has warmed the hearts of Kenyans online.

Jacque and her father had moments of holding and patting each other in court, punctuated by hearty laughs and genuine touches, depicting how family presence in dark times can light up ones life.

Kenyan on Twitter said:

 She’ll always be daddy’s little gal ” 

 “This Man is a true Hero to his daughter,wow what a father!!!!!”

 “Family first guys. Family”

 

On Monday,  Mr Maribe said her daughter was innocent, arguing that she was a victim of love and circumstances and accusing police of seeking to “become famous” by prosecuting her because she is a celebrity.

“Police want to become famous by nailing a celebrity. That is why my daughter is in custody. Her neighbour, Brian Kassaine, also has a partner. Why is she not in custody? Her biggest mistake was falling in love,” he said in a telephone interview .

Published

on

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.

CNN’s Richard Quest speaks on being gay during Nairobi tour

Published

CNN anchor Richard Quest has opened up to being gay and has urged Kenyans embrace same sex relationships.

Quest was on Tuesday interviewed by Capital FM where he explained that he chose to live in New York and London because they have no restrictions on who one chooses to love.

They are both cities that people in this country can admire, would aspire to be in and would look forward to visiting. There is a reason why I live in those cities…There is a reason why those cities attract the talent and wherever because we can live our lives as we wish. We can love who we wish,” he said.

The journalist said Kenya should embrace same sex relationships to allow people to live and work freely and compete with other nations.

DECRIMINALISE HOMOSEXUALITY

I am obviously going to be advancing an agenda that says there should be at least the decriminalization of same sexual activity. It is straight forward, I am not gonna mess around with that one. That is obviously my belief…I do not for a moment, doubt the sincerity of those people who are against me on this issue.

And I can respect their point of view, I merely say that in this day and age, if you want to succeed, if you want Kenya to be a thriving, vibrant modern economy, you are going to look at this in a different way and ask yourself what is it about these very successful places that we need to at least try to attract. That is the way you do it. You let people live their lives, love who they want and the way they wish,” he said during the interview on the morning radio show.

The CNN anchor had back in 2014 opened up his fears before coming out, wondering how it would affect his family and friends, his credibility as a journalist and how people will view his ‘Quest Means Business’ show.

“All in all professionally, I know the work I do here every day is better because I’m honest about who I am,” Quest said in his show.
