Kangundo Member of Parliament Fabian Muli Kyule will spend his weekend behind bars after he was arrested on Saturday for allegedly drunk driving.

The lawmaker was among 46 motorists arrested in Nairobi as the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) stepped up measures to reduce the number of road carnage during the festive season.

They are detained at Parklands Police Station. Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet said the MP crushed into a wall of a club as he attempted to drive off.

He added that ‘totally sloshed’ MP was aggressive to the guards who rushed to assist him and the police who arrested him.

On Monday, seven motorists had their driving licences suspended for driving while under the influence of alcohol.

A statement from the authority said the drivers’ licences will be suspended for between one to two years and that they will not be expected to drive during the period of suspension.

“We hope that suspending their licences will send a warning and strong message to those who are tempted to drink and drive.

Our teams are currently supporting the traffic police in enhancing road safety during this festive season,” read the statement from NTSA.

Miguna Miguna now claims Raila is hiding in Dubai

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Political activist Miguna Miguna is now claiming that ODM leader Raila Odinga is hiding in Dubai, pretending to have lost his eye sight.

In a tweet, Miguna further claimed that the ODM leader is afraid of facing the reality that President Uhuru Kenyatta had given him an unfair deal after the handshake.

He then mentioned that Odinga did the same in 2017 after the repeat presidential election of October 26, 2017, when he went for a 10 day visit in the United States of America.

“Conman Raila Odinga is just hiding in Dubai and pretending to have lost his sight and gone blind but the truth is that he fears facing the reality that despot Uhuru Kenyatta has shafted him. He did the same and hid in New York in November 2017,” claimed Miguna Miguna.

His words come a day after Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho and National Assembly Minority Whip Junet Mohamed went to visit the former Prime Minister in Dubai.

The ODM Leader flew to a Dubai hospital about two weeks ago where he underwent a minor surgery, and is recuperating well.

“I’m feeling great. Strong and rejuvenated. I feel so good to be out of the hospital and to be getting this fresh air.

“I want to thank all my friends and supporters who have sent me messages of goodwill and prayers. This is why I have recovered so fast and it is wonderful,” said Mr. Odinga in a video shared by his daughter Winnie Odinga

Robert Murathe? Kagwe denies Pastor Burale’s ‘deal’ – VIDEO

Published

on

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Thursday said he has never heard of Robert Burale after he was asked a question about the ailing pastor during Thursday’s Covid-19 briefing in Mombasa.

Referring to him as Robert Murathe, the CS said that he does not know who Burale is, adding that he cannot respond to rumours.

“I don’t know anything about Robert Murathe, I don’t know what he’s doing, he’s probably sick. I have never heard of this guy. You are saying he is supposed to have been paid, by who? When it comes to issues like rumours, if I were to respond to every rumour I would be very busy,” he said.

He wondered who would have paid him and why.

“I don’t know who would have paid him or why he would be pretending. The guy might probably be sick but you have decided that he is not. Let me leave that one out.”

On Monday, the renowned motivational speaker and pastor announced that he had tested positive for coronavirus.

Pastor Burale made the revelation via Facebook, saying that he had to wait for President Uhuru Kenyatta to give his speech before he could share the bad news.

“Last week Wednesday I (after recording an FB program that airs of Fridays) was struggling to breathe and rushed to Nairobi Hospital where I was tested for Covid-19 and I tested positive,” he said.

Many Kenyans online claimed that it was a PR stunt and alleged that Burale had been paid to pull off the move.

CS Kagwe found guilty of contempt of court order

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe risks spending six months in prison after being convicted by the Labour and Employment court.

Kagwe was found guilty of a court contempt in a case pitting the health ministry against senior officers of the National Quality Control Laboratory (NQCL) who were transferred by the CS despite an existing court order.

In a ruling delivered by Justice Onesmus Makau on Thursday, July 9, Kagwe was ordered to appear in court in person or through a lawyer on Thursday, July 23, for mitigation and sentencing.

“The Honorable Cabinet Secretary, Mutahi Kagwe, is hereby cited for contempt of this court’s decree dated January 31 2020, for his decision contained in the letter Ref: 1991082265 dated June 12 2020, deploying Dr Hezekiah K. Chepkwony from the National Quality Control Laboratory to Kenya Medical Training College,” read the orders issued by the court.

Kagwe initiated the process of transferring NQLC’s Chief Executive Officer Hezekiah Chepkwony and Deputy Director Pius Wanjala to Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) and Moi Teaching and Referal Hospital respectively but was barred by the court after the two secured an injunction.

The CS, however, proceeded to effect the transfers despite an existing court order restricting him from doing so.

He appointed the complainants’ successors at the NQLC contrary to the orders.

Kagwe was also accused of frustrating efforts by the NQLC board to have a discussion on the conflict with a view of reaching a truce.

“The deliberate violation of the Judgment is evident as NQCL’s Board of Management made efforts to address the issues relating to the two, these efforts are demonstrated by the fact that the Board put up an advert on 6.6.2020 advising the media to stop publishing falsehoods against Chepkwony and Wanjala.

In its letter dated 8.6.2020, it sought to meet the CS for a discussion on the media reports, its mandate, challenges and the way forward but no meeting took place,” Justice Makau noted.

The maximum sentence for contempt of a court order in Kenya is six months imprisonment or a fine not exceeding KSh 200, 000 or both.
