Confusion, laughter as Raila occupies Ruto’s seat at anticorruption conference



ODM leader Raila Odinga sat on Deputy President William Ruto’s seat for a few seconds as he waited for Mr Ruto to leave the podium at Bomas of Kenya for him [Odinga] to make his address.

The DP had called Mr Odinga, who was seated several meters from the dais, to “make some remarks”; and to avoid a moment of awkward silence, the DP continued with his speech in a bid to buy time and allow Mr Odinga to arrive at the podium.

However, the DP’s speech was a little bit longer than the time Mr Odinga needed to arrive to the podium, forcing the former premier to stand near President Kenyatta’s space for a few seconds before he [Odinga] was shown elsewhere to sit, but Mr Odinga settled on the DP’s seat, which was placed next to President Kenyatta’s.

“Before I invite his Excellency the president to make his remarks, in the spirit of what our Attorney General has said, that we have to mobilize the country toward unity of purpose, unity of efforts and that of the spirits…allow me to invite the Right Honorable Raila Odinga to make some remarks…,” said DP Ruto as Mr Odinga rose from his seat and walked toward the podium.

“And while he is coming, as you ably recognise, there is a reason why Uhuru Kenyatta is president. And as you can notice, he ably executed what we call the National Government [agenda]…,” said the DP, as Mr Odinga waited on his [Ruto’s] seat, placed next to the Head of State’s.

The DP quickly read the situation; and in a bid to prevent that protocol friction, he left the podium for Mr Odinga to make his address.

The executive wing led by Mr Kenyatta and Mr Ruto, president of the Judiciary David Maraga, Attorney General Kihara Kariuki, Raila Odinga, among other leaders, were present at Bomas of Kenya for the 2-day National Anti-Corruption Conference, which has seen different stakeholders in Government vowing to tackle graft in the country.

Fourth woman in Kori love life emerges, says they have a son



The last time they talked, Joseph Kori Karue told her that he did not have food to feed himself, let alone pay her son’s school fees.

This is the tale of Grace Wangari, the latest woman in Kori’s complicated love life.He asked her to be patient as he hustled for means, and she accepted like she had always done.

She believed him.It was not the first time he was saying that he did not have money anyway. He had no job so it was understandable why he was broke.

He had just moved from Kayole in Nairobi to Nakuru to try his luck in business. She was to join him once the business began to thrive.

That is how the script was supposed to go until he blocked her calls and disappeared, leaving her with a child and a Nokia 6805 flap phone as memories.

That was in 2012. She still has a picture of them together taken in Eldoret just before he went silent.He had made some money from his business and called her to visit him with his son.

In the photo, he his holding her from the back like a lover would as two bottles of Guinness and Fanta stand on the table before them.

It was the last time they were together. The next time Grace would see Joseph Kori Karue was in the dock three weeks ago following the murder of his wife Mary Wambui.

“It was Kenyatta Day when he first walked into the restaurant. He was cool, smartly dressed and minding his own business,” she recalls.

“I don’t know how it happened but I just found myself serving his table and this became a habit,” she says.In Kori, she got her first boyfriend.

A year later, this love produced a son. They never moved in together but she says they loved each other. But unknown to her, Kori had a wife he never revealed who he lived in Kayole.
