CJ Maraga lectures DCI Kinoti, DPP Haji in front of Uhuru

Published

Chief Justice David Maraga has told off members of the Executive who have blamed Judiciary for the slow pace of war on corruption.

Justice Maraga, who spoke at the anti-corruption conference at that was held at the Bomas of Kenya, sought to systematically deconstruct each of the accusations against the arm that he leads.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga were in attendance.

The chief justice targeted the directorates of public prosecution and criminal investigations.

“We are not going to win the war against corruption by Friday arrests… I do not want to appear like I am in a blame game but let the truth be told! The judiciary does not go out there to look for cases; those who feel aggrieved come to us and file cases,” said the CJ.

“The war against corruption will not be worn by blame-games and by people who are involved here (some are here) hiring professional bloggers to demonise anybody and the Judiciary.”

He particularly told DPP Noordin Haji, who was present alongside DCI George Kinoti, that he ought to rethink how he presents his cases.

“When you have 30 suspects on one charge sheet, each of the is represented by a lawyer, how long do you think the case will take?” he said.

“Charge one or two people and make the rest the prosecution witnesses.”

He lamented that Judiciary had been starved off money, noting that they got just Sh14 billion in budget, having requested for Sh31 billion.

“The war against corruption is going to be won by use of technology; we need to invest in technology to fight corruption JSC has a Judiciary Ombudsman and we are asking for support to deal with some of the cases coming there,” he said.

Papa Shirandula actress Naliaka ordained as a minister

Published

on

Celebrated Papa Shirandula actress Daisy Netia alias Naliaka is now a minister of the gospel after she was ordained as a pastor at the Harvest Family Church in Ongata Rongai.

Sharing the exciting news on Instagram, Naliaka – in prayer- thanked her spiritual father, Jimmy Macharia, for seeing her through.

“The day my life changed totally. I thank God for my spiritual father Jimmy Macharia who saw beyond my weaknesses. When God wants to do something in your life, He will introduce to you a man. Dear God, please help me not to ever forget where you picked from,” wrote Naliaka.

According to one of Naliaka’s close friends, the actress has been juggling between acting and ministry and are pleased that she was finally given the nod to do what she loves most.

Naliaka’s march to the pulpit is reminiscent with that of sports journalist Vincent Opiyo who not too long ago also heeded the call to minister through the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).

In his last article published on May 19, 2019, Opiyo admitted that priesthood was his lifetime ambition despite his stint at the newsroom.

A passion to serve that, he said, began when he was 12 as an altar boy at his home Parish, Nangina Catholic Church.

“At the age of 12, I became an Altar Boy in my home parish, Nangina Catholic church. This was a year of finishing my catechism classes that culminated into receiving Holy Communion. It is during this period that I started dreaming of being like my parish priest who was a friend and a father figure,” he recalled.

Opiyo explained that even though he went through hardships at the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC), the U-turn was inevitable.

“I joined the University of Nairobi for a Broadcast Journalism course in September 2011 but my hopes for a bursary from a charity organization collapsed and I had to drop out after failing to pay the Sh110, 000 fees… I applied for evening classes at the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC) in Nairobi and sold Airtel mobile phone SIM cards on the streets to add to the little upkeep my father gave me. A SIM card was Sh50, my profit was Sh20,” he added.
