CS Amina Mohamed orders school to re-admit Rastafarian Girl

Published

on


Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed on Thursday,directed that a rastafarian girl, Makeda Ndinda, suspended from Olympic High school over dreadlocks, be re-admitted.

According to media reports, the CS made the decision explaining that the girl was entitled to an education.

She further referenced to a court ruling that had allowed Muslim students to attend schools with hijabs and scarves since it was their religion’s requirement.

Olympic High School sent the girl away claiming that it would only admit her if she shaved her dreadlocks.

The school’s decision, however, did not sit well with her father who then pressed charges stating that the dreadlocks represented their religion.

The father, John Mwenda, through his lawyer, Shadrack Wambui, accused the school of denying the girl her right to education hence fostering discrimination.

The case caught the eye of former presidential aspirant Ekuru Aukot who claimed that by the school’s action, it had discriminated against the student.

“I do not understand why a public institution would discriminate against a child. There are Akorinos, Sikhs and Muslims who are allowed in school,” stated Aukot.

Mwenda is seeking for her daughter to be compensated over the violation.

INCREDIBLE VIDEO: You won’t believe what this baby is capable of

Published

on

A Video of the rosy-cheeked toddler pulling herself up climbing walls zipped across the Internet this week, drawing millions of views on Facebook in just a few days.
Her parents, Rachael and Zak Farmer, are competitive climbers who always hoped she’d join in the family pastime. Ellie was climbing with her mother throughout her pregnancy and has been a fixture at their local gym in Flagstaff, Arizona, her entire life.
“She’s really been part of the climbing community since birth,” said Zak Farmer, 31. “When she was first opening her eyes, she was at the gym, seeing climbers climb.”
Ellie was climbing before she could walk and scaled her first wall around 8 months.
“I kind of imagined when I had Ellie that she was going to be this calm baby, and we’d always go hiking in the woods, and she’d watch the butterflies go by,” said Rachael Farmer, 28. “That’s really nice, and we definitely have those moments together, but she is a really active kid.”
Her father built an 8-foot climbing wall in the bedroom beside her crib. (Now, because she’s such an ace climber, it stands beside her toddler bed.) Ellie is typically at the gym with her parents about five days a week, and some of that time is dedicated just to her interests: hanging, gripping and scrambling up kid-size walls.

Eko Dydda’s troubled marriage

Published

on

Kenyan gospel rapper Eko Dydda has finally been exposed by his wife, Cynthia Ayugi, for cheating on her with a friend after months of denial.

Two months ago, the rapper was reported to have kicked his wife and the mother of his two sons out of their home after she confronted him over an affair with another woman.

The rapper however denied the claims by posting a video of himself, his wife and their two sons with the caption:

“Dida ambia wasee wa rumours Psalms 23, What is bound in heaven is also bound on earth.”

DISMISSED RUMOURS

He would later do an interview with Edaily where he once again dismissed the rumours.

“You know me. I cannot dare do all that which is being alleged online. My wife and children are with me and I do not know where the rumour came from,” he said.

But from his wife’s latest claims, it is clear that their marriage is now on the rocks over claims of infidelity.

CHEATING HUSBAND

In a recent post, Ayugi accused her husband of cheating on her with a friend, stating that she is not going to remain silent anymore.

“Breaking someone’s marriage is not Godly. I invited you as a friend, today unasema ambia Eko not to bring me home because love yenu haita grow. It’s not a battle @EkoDydda you don’t have to hide it anymore your ‘Dope’ is free to love you, sometimes it’s healthy to walk away. Na leo ndio ile siku I will not hide it for fame, money. I will stand with the truth and will never lie to people,” she wrote.
