VIDEO: Uhuru- Bruce Odhiambo helped straighten out my son, and I am truly grateful



Former Youth Fund boss Bruce Odhiambo was on Saturday, January 19, laid to rest at his home in Koru, Kisumu County.

Among other mourners including friends and relatives, Bruce Odhiambo’s burial was attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

President Kenyatta eulogised Bruce Odhiambo, whom he studied with at St. Mary’s High School in Nairobi, as a “true Kenyan”, who “mentored” and “helped in straightening out” his son, Jomo Kenyatta.

“Bruce Odhiambo was a compassionate man, a loving man, a giving man, he cared for others, and he was what we call a true Kenyan. He had no tribal boundaries, no religious boundaries. Bruce made friends across the country. Bruce was also a mentor to very many young people in this country, including my own son, Jomo, whom he helped in straightening out,” said the Head of State.

ODM leader Raila Odinga eulogised Bruce Odhiambo as a man who “touched generations”.

“He was a man, who has changed the lives of so many people. He touched generations, including those who were older than him, his age-mates, and the younger generation. Bruce loved people. He promoted so many people and helped so many people. He has lived a wonderful life. Bruce has made a major contribution to our society, and that is why we are celebrating his life here today [Saturday],” said Mr Odinga.

We were not happy anymore – Lilian Muli speaks on split from ex-husband



Days after K24 news anchor Betty Kyallo opened up to her Instagram followers that she is happy that her ex-husband Dennis Okari has moved on, Lilian Muli has taken a cue.

Speaking to Kalekye Mumo, Muli disclosed that her relationship with ex-husband, Moses Njuguna Kanene, came to a slow, grinding halt and they had to go their separate ways.

The Citizen TV anchor narrated that though the relationship was bliss at first, it reached a point where she felt “strangulated.”

She added that they mutually agreed to part ways and still remain friends to date.

I was young, I was a small girl. That seems like a long time ago but it was pretty romantic. He was my friend, he remain my friend to date. He is an extremely romantic gentleman and so he guided me a lot along that process, it is what it is, things didn’t work out. He is a person I respect to date

We were not happy anymore, and we just got to a place where you know we were not friends anymore, and I felt strangulated, I just felt that the Lilian I knew was getting suffocated in this environment and we mutually opted it was not working. We agreed to go separate ways. It is easier that way, there is no unnecessary drama. Once you have a child with someone really that person is your life forever,” Muli told Kalyekye.
