Why Obado moved to his old house

Published

on

Migori Governor Okoth Obado has now moved to his old house in compliance with High Court bond terms that require him to stay away from Homa Bay’s boundary by at least 20km.
His magnificent Rapogi home in Uriri sub-county is barely 15km from the boundary of Homa Bay, where his girlfriend Sharon Otieno was murdered.
The governor’s personal effects, including clothes, were brought from the Rapogi home immediately he arrived from Nairobi on Saturday.

ABDUCTED
The Migori house belongs to BAT Kenya and was rented by the county administration in 2014.
Mr Obado vacated the house three years ago when the construction of his new rural home was completed. He has been operating from his Rapogi home, which is within the 20km radius.
The court had ordered that he stay at least 20km away from the boundary of Homa Bay, Ms Otieno’s home county, where she was abducted and killed.

INCONVENIENCE
The BAT Kenya house was occasionally being used for private daytime meetings since it’s only three kilometres from the governor’s office.
“We are respecting the conditions imposed by the court although they have brought a lot of inconvenience to us. Mr Obado will now operate from here,” said an aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Sources said the Migori house received a fresh coat of paint on Saturday evening.

REMAND PRISON
Mr Obado travelled to Migori on Saturday for the first time after staying for more than one month in Nairobi’s Industrial Area Remand Prison.
He was driven straight to Upper Hill SDA Church located near the county headquarters for prayers.
“Pray for me because I am in a difficult situation, but also remain united and peaceful,” Mr Obado told the congregation.

EMOTIONALLY WEAK
Although his arrival was not much publicised, local residents — who got wind of Mr Obado’s presence — trooped to the church to catch a glimpse of the county chief.
“I wanted to see how he looks after his life in remand prison. He looks stable but weak emotionally,” said Ms Millicent Anyango, a local primary schoolteacher.
In compliance with the bond terms, Mr Obado avoided mentioning the name of Rongo University student Sharon Otieno, whose murder caused his arrest and his being charged in the High Court in Nairobi.

STATEMENT
The county chief also avoided talking about the circumstances under which the student was abducted and killed.
County government employees flanked the governor during the few hours he spent in the church and left soon after the prayers.
Mr Obado arrived in Migori just hours after issuing a statement from his Lavington home in Nairobi. He thanked the High Court “for listening to my request to grant me bail”.

‘Buyer Beware’ admin arrested

Published

on

Blogger Mildred Atieno Owiso, popularly known as Atty, who runs the popular online platform ‘Buyer Beware’ has been arrested over human trafficking claims.

According to the police, the controversial blogger was picked from her house in Umoja on Tuesday morning, but her followers claim she was picked from a house in Buru Buru.

The blogger is said to have published corruption allegations against Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko claiming that he was abetting corruption at City Hall.

Buru Buru OCPD Adamson Bungei however said that was not the reason for Ms Owiso’s arrest, insisting that the blogger was arrested on suspicion of human trafficking offences.

“We realised that in the same facility that the lady was occupying there were some traveling documents (Passports) of other people and after being questioned, she was not able to justify why she had the documents of the alleged victim,” said Mr Bungei.

He added that the victim had alleged that she had requested to travel abroad for employment which is linked with an international body and that the police are establishing if Ms Owiso has a legal licence to run a business of recruiting people for employment abroad.

SONKO’S COMPLAINT

According to the police, the blogger will also be charged with causing disturbance after she tried to escape from a lawful custody and causing a scene at the station.

At the same time, Governor Sonko has said he has filed his complaint against Ms Owios with the police.

“It is a very interesting coincidence that only a day after this infamous blogger who I had never heard of before Saturday crawled from the woodworks and attacked me without justification based on year ending June 2017 to June 2018 audit report which I addressed sufficiently in numerous posts on social media, in National Television on Side Bar at NTV and at Senate PAC Committee which was aired live only for her to be arrested the next day over Human trafficking allegations,” Sonko posted on his Facebook page.

Published

on

Genge rapper Mejja is in love again after enduring the heartbreak of being ditched by his wife of five years through a text message.

Sometime last year, Mejja, who makes the trio of The Kansoul group, revealed that he battled depression and at one point contemplated taking away his life.

This was after his wife of five years and the mother of his daughter dumped him via text message despite them not having any misunderstanding, according to the artiste.

“We had not disagreed. Actually we were so happy. I was in Thika and I got her message asking me if I had arrived well. I told her yes and the next thing she told me was ‘move on with your life’” Mejja revealed in a past interview.

The artiste said that all his efforts to salvage his marriage never bore fruit as his estranged wife kept ignoring his calls.

The situation drove Mejja into depression and for a whole year he struggled to come to terms with the reality of his collapsing marriage.

IN LOVE AGAIN

However, Mejja now seems to have moved on.

On Sunday, he formally introduced his new girlfriend to his fans via Instagram.

Mejja shared a picture of him and his new bea accompanied with a very telling caption.

Did Ruto kick out journalists, yet again? – AUDIO

Published

on

An audio recording of someone who sounds like the Deputy President William Ruto chasing away journalists is making the rounds on social media.

In the audio, the person is heard telling asking the journalists to leave.

“Bado tuko na watu ya magazeti? Watu ya magazeti mnafanya nini hapa? Toeni hii maTV yenu hapa. Mnatufwata mpaka usiku? Tokeni hapa!” the speaker in the audio clip says.

It is not clear when, where nor if the person speaking is indeed the Deputy President.

The audio has emerged just days after the DP was caught on camera shooing off journalists who were covering the Ilchamus traditional wedding ceremony in Baringo County, an event he presided over.

In an incident that happened on August 10, 2019 in Baringo county, the DP interrupted his speech and asked the journalists to move back to give the crowd a clear view of the speakers at the wedding.

UNWANTED COVERAGE

Ruto went as far as making it clear to the journalists that he was not there to address them, but rather members of the public gathered at the venue.

“Na nyinyi watu wa nini, mumekuwa wengi hapa ketini chini watu wanataka kuangalia huko nyuma. Nyinyi tokeni hapa. Msonge nyuma. Wakae mbali mbali ndio wananchi waone. Kwani mnafikiri nimekuja kuongea na nyinyi ama nimekuja kuongea na wananchi,” Ruto said while addressing the journalists.
