How Marende won Sh35k monthly upkeep case filed by his ex-lover

Published

on

Former Speaker of the National Assembly Kenneth Marende seems to have convinced the High Court that he is unable to pay Sh35,000 monthly upkeep for his ex-lover.

But the court has ruled that the former Speaker will have to help in paying school fees for Jennifer Nkowua’s child.

Five years ago, Marende was directed by a court to pay the monthly stipend to Nkowua.

He appealed the ruling and the High Court has now dismissed the initial orders by the trial court.

SEPARATED

In his court papers, Marende not only denied ever cohabiting with the said woman, but also stated that he was not on salaried employment and had the financial burden of supporting six children and aging parents.

He also argued that Nkowua could sustain herself and the child and that she was dishonest in not disclosing her financial capacity.

Marende also stated that he had set up a business for the woman and that she had vacated their home in possession of, among other things, a car.

Marende’s first wife named Lavendar died in 2005. He married his second wife in 2002 but separated in 2008, five months after becoming Speaker of the National Assembly.

VIDEO: Kenyan rapper Kahush confirms he is Health CS Kagwe’s son

Published

on

Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has become a household name since the invasion of coronavirus into the country.

Kagwe has always been a private man when it comes to his family, but Kenyan online detectives never disappoint.

The netizens had been speculating that the young rapper identified as Kahush is the CS’s son.

In an interview with NRG radio, Kahush for the first time opened up about his family and confirmed what many had been anticipating to hear.

“Mutahi Kagwe is my dad. It is pretty obvious because his picture is in the video. Yeah that is it,” he said.

Kahush is a humble artiste who has not been implicated in any scandal and has instead been concentrating on his music.

The young man is not based in Kenya. He lives in England. He went viral after the release of the song Mi Siwezi.

Kahush seems to be a low-key person judging by his social media posts which are limited for any celebrity kid or musician.

It is worth noting that in the video, which attracted the attention of many, the CS’s son observed social distancing, something which his fans were proud of.

It seems the young man has been in the country for a while since the coronavirus spread in most parts of the world.

Many consider Kahush to be very humble but always comparing him with the eloquent CS who has continuously encouraged Kenyans in the COVID-19 fight.

A Nigerian lady identified as Fanu Omolade has got people talking after a personal experience she shared online.

Narrating her experience, the young woman said that in 2014, her ex-lover dumped her and married another woman because she was jobless and did not have any money.

While some think that the post is trash, some advised her to treat the woman very well.

Other people think that the woman may not need the job because of money and some asked if she would be letting her go after her realisation.

Reacting to the question about sacking her ex-lover’s wife, Omolade said that she will not be doing that.

VIDEO: The real reason Betty Kyallo has left K24

Published

on

Details have now emerged on the circumstances surrounding the exit of Betty Kyallo from K24 where she has served a start anchor for the past two years.

Despite the assumptions that Betty quit, Pulse Live Kenya can exclusively report that her exit from the station was a result of being declared redundant in far-reaching structural changes which will be rolled out this week.

While announcing her exit, Betty did not reveal the circumstances under which she was leaving, only saying her reign had come to an end.

“I really appreciated you all. It’s now time for me to say Goodbye here on K24 TV, if we meet again great, if not you know how you can find me on all my social media platforms, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, Betty Kyallo lately its going to be popping and we are going to be doing great things there. Thank you so much for all your support I appreciate You God bless you and I love you. Good Night,” she said.

A source at Mediamax, who is aware of the matter, revealed that K24 will be doing away with its entire newsroom in a new deal that will see them partner with KTN for the news feed.

The changes effectively do away with the need for news anchors and reporters who will be sent home in a mass firing in the course of the coming week.

K24’s political anchor Anne Kiguta will, however, be spared from the firing as her show Punchline will be the only news-related show that will air on K24.

The drastic reforms have caused distress among K24 reporters who will now battle unemployment during the Covid19 crisis.

Veteran editor Peter Opondo recently resigned from the station in protest to the changes that are said to have come from the board of the Kenyatta-family owned media company.
