VIDEO: Raila’s PA clears the air after claims the ODM leader fainted in Tanzania



The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party has dismissed claims that Raila Odinga fainted in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and was rushed to hospital.

The party’s communications director who doubles as Raila’s Personal Assistant (PA), Dennis Onyango, clarified his boss is doing fine in Dar es Salaam.

In a brief statement issued on Sunday, January 27, evening shortly after the said rumours started circulating on social media, Onyango said the ODM party leader only stepped on a podium that was falling off and that it had nothing to do with his health.

Hon Raila Odinga is fine in Dar. Images of security people holding him emerged from a step on the podium that was falling off and not anything to do with health. Thanks though to everyone who has expressed concern,” he clarified.

Ruto: I’ll retire from politics in 10 years’ time



Deputy President William Ruto says he will exit the political stage within the next 10 years when his political time lapses.

Speaking at Kitale ASK Showground on Friday during a retirement ceremony for Pentecostal Evangelistic Fellowship of Africa Bishop Samuel Thiongo, Dr Ruto said that politicians should not overstay in power because there’s life after politics.

The Deputy President also urged leaders to focus their energies on addressing challenges facing Kenyans.

“I have been in this political scene for a while now and I learned a lot of things. I will mentor the youth so that they can understand because even as we speak I have also started to get ready for it and in the next 10 years I will retire and leave the youth to take over,” said Ruto.

Poor woman declines house from Uhuru



A single mother whose son Dennis Ngaruiya cracked President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ribs with a thrilling poem four years ago, has rejected a house which was built on orders of the President to appreciate her son.

Ms Damaris Wambui Kamau said the house was not what the President Kenyatta had in mind when he ordered a State House official, a Mr Wanjohi to ensure the family had a decent home.

“This is a big joke. Look at this house. It has cracks on the outside and looks like a semi-permanent house while President Kenyatta in his wisdom meant well for us as a family,” said Ms Kamau.

She added: “Why is that officer at State House playing tricks on me and my son. One-day President Uhuru Kenyatta will know these tricks.”

However, State House Spokesperson and Head of Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) Kanze Dena insisted that the house was well- furnished.

“From the information I am gathering, the house was built and it is furnished but the lady claims the house was made of waste papers. I don’t understand what she meant by that,” said Ms Dena.

She added: “What was agreed upon when the family met the President at State House has been delivered. What is missing is cutlery and mattresses which will be procured.”

Ms Dena said that the land was procured next to one belonging to a Mr Mike Getone who works at State House. “Why this family is not living in the house is what I don’t understand. It is only Ms Kamau who can explain to us why she is not occupying the house,” said Ms Dena.
