VIDEO: Angry Maraga scoffs at cartoonists showing him massaging suspects, Uhuru weighs in

Published

on

An angry Chief Justice David Maraga said during the National Anti-corruption Conference held in Bomas of Kenya on Friday, that he was “aware” of the offensive pictures “showing me naked and massaging suspects in corruption cases”, and urged the “bloggers” to desist from posting such lewd images.

This prompted President Uhuru Kenyatta hto urge Mr Maraga to “get used” to offensive caricatures posted by “bloggers” after satirical mimicries of a semi-naked Maraga massaging Migori Governor Okoth Obado on the shoulders went viral.

The cartoon image was meant to suggest that the Judiciary is “massaging” suspects of serious crimes, instead of taking stern action against them.

The caricatures also showed other Supreme Court judges, including Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu and Njoki Ndung’u, in “funny” positions massaging other crime suspects.

During his speech, President Kenyatta urged the CJ to “get used to the bloggers” because it is the Judiciary that prevented implementation of a law that would bar bloggers from “insulting people left, right and centre”.

“…just like the rest of us get used to it” says President Kenyatta to CJ Maraga on the issue of ‘professional bloggers

“Bwana CJ if I can just take a little break here,… You know, I found it very interesting… I saw you were very angry today, especially with one group in our society called bloggers. I remember there was a time we wanted to a pass a law to stop these people from insulting all of us left right and centre, but then it was taken to court and the courts ruled that it [law] was unconstitutional. So, just like the rest of us, get used to it,” said President Kenyatta.

“You’ll just have to get used to it. There is nothing much we can do,” added the Head of State.

President Kenyatta, in his speech, insisted that the Judiciary is the “weakest link” in the fight against graft, urging the Chief Justice to “reflect” and, thereafter, expedite resolution of corruption cases that are either dragging or shelved in court.

Nick Mutuma: I do romantic movies for my female admirers

Published

on

Babe magnet, actor and film producer Nicholas Munene Mutuma better known as Nick Mutuma, has explained why he makes romantic movies.

The hunk, whose good looks drive many women crazy, says he develops such movies because of the ladies.

ROMANTIC MOVIES

Drawing comparison from American rapper and actor 50 Cent, Mutuma has revealed that he studied his market and realised most of his clients are ladies and as such, he is compelled to create or feature in content that they like and would want to see from him.

“50 Cent has done the take. What works with 50 is that he tells stories that are relatable to his target market. He knows what people want to see. So even for me a very common question I always get is ‘why do I always make romantic comedy’, ‘why do you always make movies that are more female skewed’. You know it’s understanding your market. These are the people who put food on my table,” Mutuma explained in a conversation with radio presenter Shaffie Weru.

IN A RELATIONSHIP

When asked how he keeps at bay ladies who are always thirsting for his attention the 6 foot lady-killer said he prefers staying at home if he ain’t working.

He was however quick to put a disclaimer stating that he is in a relationship with actress Bridget Shighadi.

“Every time I talk about this stuff she is normally upset because she is a very private person. She doesn’t like her stuff out there. I’m in a relationship, I’m a dad and I’m gonna leave it at that,” the actor said.

Mutuma and Bridget have been together for years now and are blessed with a two-year-daughter Dua.

Woman throws her three children into River Nzoia

Published

on

A 24-year-old woman dumped her two children into River Nzoia in Lugari Constituency, Kakamega County last night seconds before jumping into the river with a third child on her back.

The woman who has been identified as Winnie, left her sister’s house where she had been staying at 9 pm duping her children that she is taking them to the shop. It is when they got to the bridge that she asked the children to close their eyes before pushing them one after the other into the roaring mass of water moments after taking the same leap to her death.

One girl survived after clutching on to a branch a distance from where she plunged into the water. The standard two girl explained the horror when she called for help holding on a weak branch.

“She grabbed our hands and jumped in the river. I reach in the middle of the river and got hold of a stick and lurched to it. I was crying,” said the little girl in tears.

According to Alice Magoma, the sister to Winnie, she had come to stay with her after some small disagreement with her husband.

“I didn’t see any problems with her. She had been staying with me for about a week and the husband even came to pick her up yesterday but they disagreed over a certain text message. I asked him to come another day when she has cooled down,” explained Alice.

Alice explains that her sister was Okay in the evening, relaxing and chatting. She had left her to cook supper only to come back and find her and the kids not present in the house.

“That’s the last time I saw my sister. She didn’t tell me anything. She didn’t tell me her plan. I thought she was going to sleep at the neighbour’s place. I was wrong.”

The standard two girl who survived was found by Joseph Maleso, the chairman of the Nyumba kumi who took her to his home, gave her some tea and later took her to the police station where they recorded a statement.

The bodies of the woman and her two children are yet to be found.

An autopsy report released on Friday, July 3, from the Chiromo mortuary has revealed the late comedian Kasee was poisoned.

The news was made public by by Kenya Comedians Society chairman, Ken Waudo, who quashed reports linking Kasee’s death to alcoholism and depression.

According to Waudo, the deceased, born Joseph Musyoki, received a call from friends on Sunday, June 28, early morning to join them for drinks at a local joint.

He then left his wife and kids to honour his friend’s wishes but never returned home.

“Kasee was chilling at home with his wife and kids when he was called to go hang out with friends and have some drinks.

“He later felt unwell saying his stomach was disturbing him and even called his dad to inform him of the same,” Waudo said.

Kasee had promised to call his dad immediately he got home but never did.

Waudo said at the place the comedian was found dead, there were some kids who revealed he had complained of stomach problems and decided to take a nap before going home.

This was the exact place that the comedian was confirmed dead on the evening of Sunday, June 28.

“It was around 6 in the evening and cops who arrived on the scene confirmed he was dead.

“The examiner said his brain was clear and nothing to do with depression and his liver was not that bad, so he was probably poisoned,” Waudo added.

Waudo also revealed investigations were ongoing.

Kasee is survived by two children and a wife.
