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 .

BREAKING: Legendary jazz musician Oliver Mtukudzi has died

Veteran jazz musician Oliver Mtukudzi has died, TshisaLIVE can confirm.

Mtukudzi’s record label Gallo Records confirmed the news on Wednesday afternoon but said there were no details available.

The musician’s family is set to release a statement later this afternoon.

An outpouring of tributes has already flooded social media.

During an interview with TshisaLIVE a year ago, Mtukudzi spoke about his excitement of releasing his 67th album.

He said the most significant thing about his upcoming album, Hanya’Ga (Concern) was the message.

“My 67th album is meant to share a message of introspecting and I’m hoping people learn a thing or two from it. It’s an album I wrote last year after I realised that the world keeps getting tangled up in ‘unnecessary’ problems.

“All because we are focused on competing and being better than the next person. In so doing we keep stepping on each other’s toes but that is not how God created us. God meant for us to compliment each other, that’s why he didn’t duplicate talent,” he said at the time.

Uhuru, Ruto on lunch date a day after controversial appointment of Matiang’i

Published

on

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, on Wednesday, shut down dispute rumours with a lunch date in Mombasa.

Uhuru hosted Ruto for a Swahili lunch merely a day after he re-organized his cabinet seemingly trimming down responsibilities for his deputy.

The meeting was reportedly a closed door one in which the two intended to discuss the President’s recent appointments that sparked talks all across the country.

On Tuesday, Uhuru appointed Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i as the new chairman for National Development Implementation Technical Committee.

 

Matiang’i, a brash go-getter, was tasked with supervising all state projects including the all-important Big 4 Agenda.

As the Chairperson, Matiang’i will also answer directly to President Uhuru.

This prompted several leaders to react to the changes including Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, a close ally of Ruto, who sarcastically congratulated Uhuru on his move.

 

 

“Congratulations to President Uhuru for the Exec Order 1 of 2019 and to my friends CSs Matiang’i and Henry Rotich for the additional responsibilities.

“We look forward to a more co-ordinated service delivery and greater accountability to the people of Kenya. God bless you William Ruto,” posted Murkomen.
