Teach me to be humble, oh Lord.

She is always in Church, wearing faded jeans, an old T-shirt and slippers. She comes to clean and arrange the seats, decorate and clean the pulpit whenever it is dirty.

For six years, she never missed a single Saturday coming to clean the Church.

One Saturday, a young man walked into the Church while she was still arranging the chairs. He went and sat down watching as the lady was working.

He was impressed that a lady who looked quite beautiful even in the old clothes and a scarf over her hair could be so dedicated to her work in Church. He thought within himself that this was an unfortunate lady who probably had no one take care of her schooling and could probably be an orange seller or some petty trader struggling to make ends meet at the market stall. He watched and within his heart felt he knew what God wanted him to do. When he had felt a compulsion to come very early to Church, he had not understood but now he thought he did.

He went back to his car and took out some cash. When the lady finished her work and was about leaving, he called her and commended her for her service and gave her the notes.

She respectfully declined the notes but he insisted pressing it into her hands. He asked if she lived close so he could go drop her.

She thanked him and told him that her car was outside, but he did not understand what she had just said. He walked her out determined to find out all he could about this lady that God wanted him to help change her level.

They walked out of the Church with him telling her where he worked and how God had asked him to come early to Church that day and how he believed God is directing him to help make a big difference in her life. He was so busy talking he had not realized they had walked directly to a BMW X6 2019 limited Edition parked under trees in the parking lot.

The car made his one year old Benz look like a worn out wheelbarrow.

The lady opened the driver’s door stepped in and handed over her card to the man and said, “I believe God sent you here for a purpose, but I do not think it was to change my level, most likely it was to change yours.”

I am tempted to say it took a forklift to shut the young man’s mouth and move him from the place he was glued to as the lady drove off. God had a purpose for bringing him to Church that morning and that purpose was to teach him humility which he learned well.

Many times we think so highly of ourselves that where God sends us to learn we go trying to teach. We always imagine ourselves as teachers, never as students.

Oh, teach us to be humble, Lord.

Barclays Bank Sh14m ATM heist was an inside job – DCI Kinoti

Published

on

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti has confirmed that the theft of sh14 million at various Automatic Teller Machines (ATM) operated by Barclays Bank was an inside job.

According to the DCI, an initial investigation has revealed that the daring heist was executed by employees attached to the bank.

Kinoti said his team of detectives was concluding its probe in readiness to hand over the investigation file to the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Hajji’s office for prosecution of those found culpable.

“What happened at Barclays Bank is what we call constructive robbery which is a type of theft committed by employees of an organization. Look at the precision and exactly what was targeted. We are talking about a place that has CCTV cameras. However, those cameras were smeared with some substance,” he said.

On Wednesday detectives arrested a taxi driver and impounded a Probox vehicle suspected to have been used in the theft.

Five Barclays bank officials and a group of G4S security guards were earlier this week taken into custody to aid the police with the investigation.

A string of robberies in the long Easter weekend left Barclays Bank short of more than Sh14 million after four teller machines were broken into in Mutindwa, Mater Hospital, Kenyatta National Hospita and Kenya Cinema all in Nairobi County.

Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero and former Chief of Staff George Wainaina have been arrested.

The arrests come following investigations by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission over irregular payment of Sh68 million by the Nairobi City County government to a law firm.

EACC has been investigating allegations of irregular payment of the money to M/S Wachira Mburu, Mwangi and Company Advocates.

In a press statement, the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji said that after reviewing the file submitted by EACC, there was enough evidence to charge Dr Kidero and others over the suspected illegal payment.

According to the DPP, the suspects will be charged with, among others, conspiracy to commit an offence of corruption, abuse of office and money laundering.

Blonde Dj Mo caught using iPhone while marketing Oppo

Published

on

The concept of an “influencer” is pretty clear; “an individual who can reach many people through various communication channels and can therefore, potentially, influence them to like or dislike, adopt, buy or skip buying, products and services”.

Samuel Muraya, popularly known as Dj Mo, broke the code by going the opposite while influencing for and endorsing the latest Oppo smartphone F11 launched this week.

The gospel Dj sent out several tweets to describe how he likes the latest Oppo gadget while using an iPhone which is a rival product.

Kenyans online, who never miss the opportunity to poke fun at an online gaffe, took notice before Dj Mo could delete the tweets.

NEW FORM OF MARKETING

Using celebrity influencers has become the new form of marketing. It is believed that their fans are likely to use a brand that their “idols” are associated with.

Mr Muraya is not the first person to make such a blunder.

American media mogul and former talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey once sent shares of Windows tumbling down after she used an iPad to promote Windows Surface tablet.

Another influencer Luka Sabbat was sued last year for failing to live up to an agreement to promote Snap Spectacles on his Instagram account.

The company filed the lawsuit in New York Supreme Court, alleging that Sabbat breached his agreement to post three Instagram stories and one post to his Instagram feed in which he would be wearing the spectacles.

While in Nigeria, renowned tech YouTuber, Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) Samsung Nigeria was forced to deactivate their verified account after he posted from an iPhone.

Russian TV personality Ksenia Sobchak, who doubled as Samsung’s brand ambassador was also sued after she was photographed using an iPhone X during a TV interview instead of a Samsung.
