It is now official, the Luhya accent has gone global.

This, is courtesy of a mzungu woman humorously pouring her heart out for the love of Blue Band margarine in perfect Luhya accent that has taken social media by storm.

Pearl Hodgkinson Lwoyelo, an American, is the new online sensation after mesmerizing Kenyans with her mastery of the accent while explaining how the margarine is the secret for curvy women in Western.

So who is she?

Well, according to her moving story featured by Charis Newsletter, 2017 issue, Lwoyelo is married to a Kenyan man.

“I didn’t always have such a long name, though I must admit it’s always been a mouthful.

My parents were missionaries in Kenya for about 14 years. I was born and raised there for the first 13 years of my life. I loved it. As a free-spirited kid, there were no limits to where my imagination would take me….

“My husband, John, and I have been missionaries in Kenya for the past seven years. John is Kenyan and I have lived in Kenya over 50% of my life so it is very much home to both of us.

“John and I married in 2011 but I had known him since 1997 and had a crush on him since I was eleven years old. In many ways it seemed like I was living a fairy tale, marrying my childhood crush, living in the land of my heart and achieving my life dream of being a missionary…” she said

She has two daughters and is a midwife.

“I am forever grateful that everything in the birth story of my sweet baby girl, Anna, was perfect. I will never forget holding Anna for the first time, singing and praying over her. It was e

“A short year and a half later, with my second baby… I struggled with a lot of fear during Eliana’s 10-hour labour which I believe was why it took so long. I was in transition for close to five hours.

“After going through that experience and fighting to be able to breastfeed my baby, which I resumed less than a week after surgery… I began dreaming about starting birth classes to help teach pregnant women about their bodies and their choices….

“Due to a variety of reasons, I am in the States as a single mom for this season while my husband works on his visa to join us. It is an incredibly difficult season single parenting our daughters while being a full-time student, running my own social media business to try and support us and about to move to Ohio and begin a part-time preschool teaching job.”

VIDEO: Now DP Ruto, Aisha Jumwa tell Matiang’i off and call for his resignation

Published

on

Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto has said all those mentioned in the latest fake gold scam should carry their own crosses and desist from dragging the name of the president into the scandal.

Without dropping any names, Ruto said that “the political conmen had now tuned to gold.”

Walipanda ndege hapa na kwenda huko Dubai na kufanya maneno yao. Wabebe mizigo yao na waache kumuingiza rais kwa mambo hayo,” said Ruto during a fundraiser at a church in Endebess, Trans Nzoia County,.

Meanwhile, Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa, a close associate of Mr Ruto, has asked for the immediate resignation of Interior Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matian’gi.

A section of Jubilee MPs havealso told ODM leader Raila Odinga to state what he knows about the fake gold scandal.

They said Interior CS Fred Matiang’i should also explain how the country’s security was protecting the premises with fake gold.

Speaking  on Saturday when they accompanied Deputy President William Ruto during the launch of various development projects in Trans Nzoia, the lawmakers asked Matiang’i to state what he knows about it.

The leaders were Governors Patrick Khaemba (Trans Nzoia) and Ferdinand Waititu (Kiambu), MPs Robert Pukose (Endebess), Aisha Jumwa (Malindi), Janet Nangabo (Women Rep, Trans Nzoia), Rahab Mukami (Women Rep, Nyeri), Mathias Robi (Kuria West), Janet Jepkemboi (Turbo), Gabriel Tongoyo (Narok West), Fred Kapondi (Mt Elgon) and Owen Baya (Kilifi North).

This as it emerged that the Director of Public Prodecution, Nordin Haji, had defended President Kenyatta and former PM Raila Odinga.

Mr Haji issued a statement on Saturday about a recording circulated on social media that suggests that some information was relayed to President Kenyatta, Mr Odinga and Interior minister Fred Matiang’i, and that discussions followed.

He condemned the release and circulation of the recording, saying, “Such claims and their circulation through social media, specifically through leaked phone recordings in today’s age of real-time, borderless publishing, are alarmist and may needlessly cause disaffection.

He warned that “unless all facts are obtained and analysed, it is irresponsible and possibly unlawful to publish such material.”

SPEEDY PROBE

Mr Haji said he had personally received complaints from victims who said the person behind the scam had been invoking the President’s name in dealings and conversations.

“Having realised that they were conned on the availability of the gold, and the misleading knowledge and involvement of the President, the former Prime Minister and CS Matiang’i, they resolved to [file] a report [with] Kenyan authorities and cooperate with law enforcement in unearthing the under-dealings.”

The DPP said he had thus directed Inspector-General of Police Hilary Mutyambai to speed up the probe; he said the file should be forwarded to him in the next seven days.

Mr Haji also asked members of the public with helpful information to report it to authorities.
