VIDEO: Be careful where you buy your cabbage, it could be plastic

Published

They say not all that glitters is gold. This woman has a story to tell after, upon getting into her kitchen ready to make some delicious vegetable stew, she is shocked to discover that the cabbage she has just bought is , in fact, plastic.

 It begs the question as to how fruit and vegetables sold by the supermarkets are treated before they hit the shelves.

Because that ‘fresh’ shiny apple or bag of lettuce may have undergone a battery of pre-sale processes.

These include chlorine washes, plastic-like waxes (which could be the reason for the flammability) and chemical treatments, not to mention high-tech packaging designed to alter the air in which they are packed.

And, surprisingly, under current consumer laws, they often don’t have to be mentioned on the labelling.

That’s because they are considered to be processing aids, rather than counted as added ‘ingredients’.

You may have heard about plastic rice, et al, but you have to watch this to believe it. Although it is not clear where the woman recorded this video from, it is still advisable to be very careful where you buy your vegetables as there are many “fakes’ out there. Watch:

Betty Kyallo posts sexy photo of self, keeps Kenyans guessing her next move

Published

on

Long after Kenyan news outlets announced that former KTN News anchor Betty Kyalo was set to make her debut as an anchor at K24 TV station after ditching the Moi family owned media House along Mombasa Road, she is yet to grace the screen.

On Saturday she took to Twitter with a sexy photo of herself captioned: Weeeuuh it’s been a while… mko poa lakini? Kupitia tu😘😘😘

According to sources, Managers at MediaMax Network were to repackage K24’s English evening news team with Kyalo set to replace Anjlee Gadhvi, who currently hosts the Weekend Edition from Friday.

“Gadvhi might be pushed to Sunday as Betty is expected to take up the 9 pm bulleting on Friday and Saturdays,” opined Kenyans.co.ke, a leading Kenyan online publication.

It is not clear when or even whether the controversial beauty will report to the new work station.

According to sources, Betty was expected to fill the gap left by Richard Kagoe, who joined BBC, and Michelle Morgan, who quit to pursue personal interests.

K24 has been said to be planning an extensive makeover to position itself as one of the leading broadcasters in the region.

“The Kijabe Street-based TV station has been giving viewers teasers of what to expect with a series of short clips meant to arouse expectations,” wrote Kenyans.co.ke.

The move is aimed at updating studio equipment, redesigning the television studios as well as possibly introducing brand new anchors and presenters to give the channel a fresh appeal.

The red and white themed traditional wedding was held on October 27.

How Nairobi dust and old car tested Michele Obama’s love for her husband

Published

on

This year, First lady Michelle Obama was enjoying Beyonce and Jay Z’ performance in France while her husband Barack Obama visited his home and family in Kenya, Bondo.

The former American First lady Michelle Obama has now opened up on a possible reason why she did not accompany her husband Barrack Obama during his two recent visits to Kenya saying that her first visit in the country was just more than frustrating.

In her memoir titled “Becoming”, Michelle shared that on her first trip to Kenya in 1992 was full of misfortunes and even wore the wrong shoes. Obama’s sister, Auma, also had an old car that left her frustrated.

“Auma’s sky-blue VW was so old that it often needed to be pushed in order to get the engine into gear. I’d ill-advisedly bought new white sneakers to wear on the trip, and within a day, after all the pushing we did, they’d turned reddish brown, stained with the cinnamon-hued dust of Nairobi,” she shared. 

The 54-year-old who was born the US in 1964 added that the trip was also tiring and although she witnessed some beautiful scenaries, she was really frustrated.

“For every bit of awe we felt in Kenya, we were also tired, which led to quibbling, which led finally, for whatever reason, to rage. “I’m so angry at Barack,” I wrote in my journal. “I don’t think we have anything in common.” My thoughts trailed off there. As a measure of my frustration, I drew a long emphatic gash across the rest of the page,” the memoir went on.” she said.

Kenyans in US get discounts on fare, three luggage on KQ direct flight

Published

on

Kenya Airways has turned to the more than 100,000 Kenyans living in the US with generous discounts in a bid to shore up passenger numbers three weeks since it launched direct flights to New York.

National carrier, which has been grappling with low passenger numbers, says Kenyans who book tickets directly will enjoy a 10 per cent discount on fares and three of their luggage.

“The special rate for the Kenyan diaspora is only available for bookings made directly on our website,” Stephen Ngamau, KQ’s area manager for the Americas, says in a notice on display at the Kenyan Embassy in Washington DC.

“We encourage guests to enrol onto our database for more updates and offers… We look forward to having the Kenyan diaspora aboard Kenya Airways soon.” The fares on the New York route range between Sh79,000 and Sh105,000 depending on the booking period.

Kenya estimates the number of its citizens studying or working in the US at 130,000 even though other sources claim the figure could be as high as 300,000. The group has been very active in the country’s economic affairs with the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) data showing that North America accounted for 50.8 per cent of the Sh197.1 billion that citizens living abroad sent home last year.

The trend has continued this year with CBK data showing that Kenyans living in North America sent home Sh72.1 billion in the first six months of this year, representing a 69.3 per cent growth over the Sh42.5 billion received in a similar period last year.

Kenya launched its daily non-stop flights to the US on October 28 in what government officials said would stimulate tourism, trade and investments from the world’s largest economy.

The national carrier is cutting back on flights citing low demand. It has rescheduled flights covering November to March and cancelled 10 flights between last Monday and December 5.
