Muhoho, Uhuru’s little brother, a gentle soul who works 14 hours a day and insists his children must learn to milk cows

Little is known about kid brother of President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mr Muhoho Kenyatta who set the media scene alight last weekend when he represented the Head of State at the 25th memorial service of the late Jaramogi Oginga Odinga in Bondo.

Muhoho seems to go to at great lengths to avoid public limelight, or throw his weight around basking in reflected glory of his more famous big brother, President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Those who know him say the father of three, two daughters and a son, is a gentle soul who works 12 to 14 hours a day, often leaving his office at his Ruiru headquarters of the Brookside Dairies Ltd after 10pm.

Those who have worked for him say he is at ease with his employees both at the offices or on the farms, and if lunch hour catches him out of the office, he normally invites his employees to his table in hotels.

If for any reason his driver is not around or held up somewhere, he will just jump into his car and drive himself off to some appointment or duty. He has no airs at all,” one former employee recalled.

He is a strict timekeeper and methodical and does not entertain time wasting during working hours, even on his children.

When his wife Erica is not around and it falls on him to mind the children, Muhoho does not leave them at home, but packs them in his car to the office, where he assigns them to the factory to pack milk or to the farm to cut hay with the rest of the employees.

He has insisted his girls and his first born son, Jomo, now in first year in college, learn how to milk cows and boil the produce for themselves. No one is allowed to go off idling during working hours.

“They join us in the factory packing milk, or the boy joins us on a tractor to cut and pack hay and maize in silos. He would speak to us and his children too in Kikuyu,” a former employee recounted.

How does he relate with his big brother? “They are very tight. Muhoho often plays the master of ceremonies in family functions and respects his brother a lot.

“He calls him Mutungoria (the leader or boss). Any time he expected the President to visit him at the office, he would put everyone on alert by announcing “mututongoria ni aroka mwibange” (the boss/leader is coming, everyone be prepared,” one recalled.

From his earliest days, a former childhood friend recalls he always wanted to be a farmer and would say so to anyone who would listen.

When children rattled off their list if wishes, Muhoho never hesitated to make it clear he wanted to be farmer. We are not surprised he has become so successful and passionate at it,” commented a family friend who knew him from childhood.

“God sent me into the world without clothes who am I to be ashamed of my perfect being? Those with sin see my nakedness. Those redeemed by the blood of Our Saviours Jesus Christ see a beautiful child of God made perfect in His image. #NakedSoul #UnconditionalLove #IAmHisChild,” tweeted Passaris.

The post attracted numerous reactions with most Kenyans telling her to be grateful of her fortunes in these harsh economic times.

Storm as J’s restaurant staff explains why they prefer whites over blacks

Published

on

J’s Fresh Bar and Kitchen has become the butt on online rancor after one of its staff bluntly told a paying black customer that the establishment prefers whites customers.

A customer by the name Monique Kemboi wondered why she sometimes experiences ‘racist bias’ at the establishment and yet the establishment is in Kenya.

“Sometimes I have experienced racial bias where they attend to Whites and Indians faster than Africans which is saddening because we are in Kenya and in 2019 people, this should not be an issue but noted,” she posted on Instagram.

J’s Fresh Bar and Kitchen, which has branches in Westlands and Karen, responded with a shocking reply.

“This exists all over Kenya not just J’s. It’s about tip culture not racism. All restaurant owners know this and it’s important to state the truth,” J’s staff responded.

The response has since been taken down by the establishment after it elicited a backlash.

The restaurant issued a statement on Thursday emphasizing their position on discriminatory behavior

“Notices will placed in our establishments stating our zero tolerance policy to any form discriminatory behavior or harassment of any form whether this maybe from any member of staff, patrons or any external security services deployed,” part of the statement read.

Their response still did not go down well with patrons who called them out more.

Yvonne Nyawira said; “Your response to Monique Kemboi is such an ignorant comment. So basically you are saying yes we are racist but it’s only because it’s for tips so it’s OK? Did you even think before coming here to respond in such a way? Have you thought about the countless Kenyans who spend money there until morning buying spirits, wines by the bottles and beers by the crates keeping your doors open so you can afford to pay staff and rent? Sustainability trumps your white folk who drink two beers all night. But you can go ahead and keep your tippers I’m out! ALSO, WE TIP!!! Not that this is the issue!”

While Ivy Kinuthia described how she also had a terrible time at the establishment.

“I used to visit Js regularly but had a horrible experience with security while visiting with a friend from another African country which resulted in extreme humiliation. I even asked to speak with the management and they literally dared me to do so. I made several phone calls that were not answered. What I got from that was that it was encouraged behavior. Please save us your non-discriminatory signs. Js is a self-hating, overpriced and non-inclusive venue. It’s been a year since I last visited and I am happy to say that I have no plans of returning. We need less businesses like you and I am glad to see that more people have caught on.”

“Your wait staff are entitled and require intensive training. It beggars belief that they treat Africans badly and still expect our tips (a concept that is as foreign as it is optional). It’s a fact that whites get preferential treatment in your establishment: In a country that is 99% black, you should be VERY ashamed of that. Do Better,” said Elayne Okaya.

A respondent by the name Yaw Twelve said; “You know I used to respect y’all until you responded to Monica. Being racist in your own country openly is one of the worst decisions you could make. Considering the economic instability of the currency, people have no time and patience for such kind of treatment. In a full African country with no predominance, you can afford to keep such a mindset…. I ain’t stepping near that place anytime soon.”
