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.

How city MP Theuri rudely responded to constituent who engaged him online

Published

on

Embakasi West MP George Theuri on Tuesday rudely responded to a constituent who had sought to know why a contractor had abandoned a road construction site.

Instead, Theuri told the constituent to deal with her menstrual periods first before engaging him online.

The resident had commented on a Governor Mike Sonko post tagging her MP while asking the governor to find out from the area MP why the contractor had abandoned site.

“Ask mca mark Mugambi Macharia, George Theuri the G area road where did the contractor go? The 17 matatu pass through the estate making it a highway of matatu also endangering school going kids,” she wrote.

RUDE RESPONSE

Theuri replied to the comment telling the constituent that it was a county government project, “they ask me as who? Don’t u know the county govt is the one undertaking that project ama uliambiwa contractor ni wetu ndio niulizwe kule alienda?”

The constituent responded that as the area MP he should have answers, to which Theuri replied, “naona mashiro zinakusumbua change pad kwanza ndio tuongee.”

 

The resident just laughed off the response but Nairobi News sought to find out why the legislator rudely responded to her.

HANG UP 

In our brief conversation with Theuri, we recapped the online conversation then asked why he rudely responded to the constituent.

Theuri promptly hang up the phone.

The legislator is in the habit of rudely engaging constituents online. In September 2015 he had to apologise after residents told him they had every right to seek answers from him on dilapidated roads.

In May 2016 the youthful legislator had yet another encounter with a constituent who complained over the poor state of roads.

DP Ruto: I only dreamt of being a train driver

Published

on

Deputy President William Ruto says he once harboured dreams of becoming a train driver.

While recently narrating his tough past, the DP explained that he came to admire the profession after working next to a railway line for a few years.

“In 1978, 1979 and 1980, I used to sell chicken at between Sh12 and Sh14 each. At that time I only thought of driving a train. That was my dream because you know I used to work next to a railway. So I understand what you (casual business people) go through when you sell potatoes and vegetables,” Ruto said.

Life has since changed for the better for Ruto, who now holds the second most powerful office in the land, with an average take home monthly salary of Sh1.2 million.

PERSONAL FORTUNES

His big break is said to have come when he once visited retired President Daniel arap Moi as part of the church choir.

The DP’s personal fortune has also increased tenfold.

Nowadays, he is in the habit of hopping from village to village in a private chopper. He also owns and uses a large fleet of vehicles.

He is estimated to donate an average Sh5 million a month at public fundraisers.

DP Ruto ‘adds’ new verse to the Bible – VIDEO

Published

on

Deputy President William Ruto is a man who loves to not only publicly professing his Christian faith, but also preaching and quoting the Bible from time to time.

Last weekend, however, the DP completely got his knowledge of the Bible all mixed up as he quoted a non-existent verse.

While speaking on Sunday to Salvation Army congregants at Township Primary School in Kakamega town, the DP cited a famous Bible verse to explain why he will not stop making financial donations to churches.

Speaking in Swahili, Ruto quoted Mathew 6:35 saying:

“Lakini tafuteni kwanza ufalme wa mbinguni na haki yake, na haya yote mtaongezewa (But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you).

What may have escaped some of the faithfuls’ attention is that the said Bible verse he quoted does not exist (Matthew Chapter 6 ends in verse 34).

Ruto’s quote is actually taken from Matthew 6:33.
