Published

Sometimes in 2014, Teacher Wanjiku quit Churchill Show to start her own comedy show on Citizen TV. But unfortunately her show wasn’t a success, it was probably the biggest flop in the history of Kenyan television.

Citizen TV cancelled Teacher Wanjiku’s show just after the pilot episode because of poor ratings. The comedian was out in the cold for a long time before she finally made a major comeback on Churchill Show.

Teacher Wanjiku talked about her absence from comedy during a recent interview with Massawe Japanni on Radio Jambo.

“Being away for some time has helped me maintain my brand as a comedian. Understanding my brand and what I am telling my audience helps,” said Teacher Wanjiku.

“You have to keep pushing yourself in the industry. I am original and I work very hard for my content before I get into the studio. I sometimes leave my audience to control me. Always allow people to criticize you. If not, you will not manage.”

Misconception

Teacher Wanjiku also opened up about the challenges she and other female comedians face in comedy industry;

“Most people do not believe that a woman is able to make people laugh. You have to prove to them that you are better than even the men. There are fewer females in the comedy industry.”

DANGEROUS: Pilot caught sleeping in the cockpit while flying 747 passenger jet [VIDEO]

Published

on

A senior chief pilot “with nearly 20 years flying experience” has been filmed sleeping in the cockpit of his passenger jet.

The man was in the China Airlines 747 while his co-pilot recorded him snoozing on the job.The embarrassing video surfaced just days after the Chinese airlines pilots ended an unprecedented seven-day strike over issues such as pilot fatigue and long working hours.

Taiwan’s flag carrier, which has its headquarters in Taoyuan International Airport, has responded to the incident saying the clip was filmed before the most recent strikes took place.The video shows the highly experienced chief officer with his eyes closed and his head down as he sits in the main seat of the cockpit.

While he is yet to be named, he is reportedly the airline’s most senior Boeing 747 pilot, with 20 years of experience flying mainly Tokyo, Okinawa, Seoul and Hong Kong routes.The chief pilot is also said to be an instructor in charge of simulations at the China Airlines Flight Training Centre.

Facing accusations including ignoring flight safety procedures, the pilot is said to have “received adequate punishment”, a statement by China Airlines said.The airline added that the video was filmed prior to the February strikes which affected roughly 20,000 passengers booked on about 100 flights.China Airlines has also suggested the co-pilot who filmed and released the video may also be punished for choosing to record the clip instead of wake his senior officer up.

A Kenyan man accused of stealing Sh3.6 billion ($36 million) from an American media technology services company has been extradited from his South American hideout.

Edward Martin Karuku, alias Paul McDaniel 42, was a former accounting manager who has been on the run since 2017.

He was returned to California from Costa Rica on Thursday to face charges of wire fraud.

According to NBC, the accused fled to Costa Rica in early 2017. He is accused of embezzling funds from Hypermedia Systems Inc., a media-technology services firm, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said that as part of his job, McDaniel was charged with making payments to Hypermedia vendors.

According to the indictment, McDaniel formed a corporation using a name similar to one of Hypermedia’s vendors, then directed more than Sh3.6 billion in funds to the shell company and created bogus invoices on letterhead of actual Hypermedia vendors to justify the expenses.

McDaniel allegedly used the stolen funds to pay off Sh2.3 billion in credit card debt, and transferred Sh800 million to his personal bank accounts.

VIDEO: Uhuru loses temper, threatens to deal with CS Macharia

Published

on

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

A video has emerged in which an irate President Uhuru Kenyatta tells off  Transport CS James Wainaina Macharia for not living up to expectation .

Kenyatta made a surprise visit to a Chinese construction site where he found the construction work had stalled and started to enquire the reason behind it.

He also enquired on how they had been allocated funds and listened as the CS and the Chinese contractor each gave a different figure, much to the President’s dismay.

The CS tried to interject the President to save face for the Chinese but a seemingly infuriated Uhuru could hear none of it.

In their defense, the officials from the Chinese company insinuated that there was shortage of funds and that the project would be fast-tracked if they received enough monies.
