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.”

BREAKING: Legendary jazz musician Oliver Mtukudzi has died

Published

on

Veteran jazz musician Oliver Mtukudzi has died, TshisaLIVE can confirm.

Mtukudzi’s record label Gallo Records confirmed the news on Wednesday afternoon but said there were no details available.

The musician’s family is set to release a statement later this afternoon.

An outpouring of tributes has already flooded social media.

During an interview with TshisaLIVE a year ago, Mtukudzi spoke about his excitement of releasing his 67th album.

He said the most significant thing about his upcoming album, Hanya’Ga (Concern) was the message.

“My 67th album is meant to share a message of introspecting and I’m hoping people learn a thing or two from it. It’s an album I wrote last year after I realised that the world keeps getting tangled up in ‘unnecessary’ problems.

“All because we are focused on competing and being better than the next person. In so doing we keep stepping on each other’s toes but that is not how God created us. God meant for us to compliment each other, that’s why he didn’t duplicate talent,” he said at the time.

FBI agents arrest three Kenyans in US over links to Isis

Published

on

Three Kenyans were on Tuesday arrested in the United States for their links to terror group Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS).

The three were nabbed by Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) agents. They were identified as Mohamed Salat Haji, Mohamud Abdikadir Muse and Muse Abdikadir Muse.

The three were arrested in Lansing, Michigan. They are said to have pledged allegiance to the Islamic state.

Mr Muse Abdikadir Muse was nabbed while on transit to Somalia.

“He was checking in for a flight on his way to Mogadishu, Somalia when he was arrested,” a statement by the FBI released on Tuesday stated.

Mr Muse Abdikadir Muse had earlier this month purchased air tickets to travel from the Gerald R. Ford Airport in Michigan.

CO-CONSPIRATORS

The US Department of Justice said his other two friends, described as co-conspirators, had assisted him in getting the ticket.

“They aided in the purchase of the ticket and drove Muse Abdikadir Muse to the Grand Rapids airport, each knowing the true purpose of the travel was for Muse Muse to join and fight for ISIS,” read the statement.

According to the FBI, the three recorded videos pledging allegiance to the group where they narrated their desire “to kill non-believers, and even to potentially use a car for a martyrdom operation to run down non-believers in the USA.”

Despite their arrest, the American Government is yet to find them guilty of the charges.

Their arrest comes exactly a week after terrorists led by a Kenyan identified as Salim Gichunge attacked dusitD2 hotel and killed 21 people.\

‘Please help me return home,’ Kenyan legend runner living in the US pleads

Published

on

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

Kenyan distance running legend Henry Rono a broken man. He has been living in the United States of America for the last 32 years, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Rono who is now 66, on Tuesday reached out to Nation Sport and sent a passionate appeal:

“I wants a ticket back home, please.”

“Yes, I would like the government to help me get back home by getting me a ticket… I can’t afford living in the USA. I’m getting old… Also, being away from home for over 32 years is too long,” added the legend.

The legend is currently a security guard at the Albuquerque airport.

“Yes, I did retire, but these other jobs are stressful and I’m too old,” he said. “Like now, I’m sick from working hard. Many of my fellow Kenyans are dying from stressful hard working jobs,” said Rono, who was given a lifetime achievement award by the International Association of Athletics Federations in 2008.

“I have been given another award in Belgrade but I’m able to attend because of stressful work. Like now, I’m in the bed and I’m unwell.”

But Rono’s daughter Maureen confirmed she had spoken to the legend, and that he has been unwell since last week. “He has been coughing for the last week, and I’ve been in touch with him. If he asked you to send out an appeal for help, you can go ahead and publish,” she said.

Athletics Kenya President Jack Tuwei, meanwhile, said his association would be ready to help the legend.

“He did a lot for this country and we can’t fail to get help for him,” said Tuwei. “We need information such as costs of tickets, who he could be travelling with and other details, and then see how we can support.”

The Washington State University star alumnus had taken up coaching after his running career, this after alcoholism dented the highlight years of his spell that saw him shatter world records in the 3,000 metres (seven minutes, 32.1 seconds), 5,000 metres (13:08.4), 3,000 metres steeplechase (8:05.04) and 10,000 metres (27:22.47), all within 81 days across USA (California and Seattle) and Europe (Vienna and Oslo).
