Some Kenya traffic cops use Matthew 5:25-26 to explain why they take bribes

25 “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.

26 Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.

Now you know.

But wait a minute. This passage has been thrown in my face again and again to show me how I made the wrong choice with my kids. Problem is, most people don’t even understand what this scripture means. So I’d like to pose a little hypothetical situation for you all.

Satan comes to your door. He takes advantage of your politeness to gain access to your home. Once inside, he says, I’ve received a report that your children were seen walking too far from home. I’m quite concerned by this. If this problem is not remedied, I am afraid I’m going to have to remove your children from you. I need you to sign this paper agreeing that you will not allow your children to go outside the gates of your property unless you are with them.

Trouble for Ex-MP Mustafa Idd who works with wife at State agency

Published

on

Former Kilifi South MP Salim Mustafa Idd could be kicked out of the Coast Water Works Development Agency board over allegations of nepotism.

This is after a civil society group on Wednesday filed a case seeking for the revocation of his appointment over conflict of interest in the management of the State agency.

According to the petition filed by the Commission for Human Rights and Justice, Mr Idd, who is the current chairman of the water agency, is serving in the same board with his wife Amina Mnyazi.

The lobby group says that this arrangement breaches Section 8, 9 and 10 of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Act that deals with public appointments.

BREACHES OF LAW

Also, the petitioner says that the appointment, where the two are serving in the same board, breaches Section 19 of the Leadership and Integrity Act, Section 146 of the Companies Act, and Section 66 of the Water Act.

Through its executive director Julius Ogogoh, the civil society group says in a matter filed under a certificate of agency that the two cannot be allowed to serve on the same board due to conflict of interest.

“In the public domain, a man and his wife cannot preside over the same public and State agency with the same mandate without the real likelihood of conflict of interest,” says the petitioner.

Mr Idd and Ms Mnyazi were appointed as chairman and member of the board respectively by the Ministry of Water in February 2019 to serve for a period of three years.

HUSBAND AND WIFE

But during the term of the appointment and service, the petitioner says the two contracted a marriage and are now spouses and living as husband and wife.

Mr Ogogo says in the petition that the two have failed to adhere to a requirement that every public official shall at all times take measures to avoid any conflict of interest in relation to any public engagement.

“As a consequence of the said marriage ,Mr Idd cannot, without impropriety and public trust, preside over board meetings and make impartial decisions which are above the test and leadership and integrity as there is conflict of interest between his family and the public at the board,” said Mr Ogogoh.

The group now wants the court to issue an order stopping the State Corporation Advisory Committee from authorising payment of all claims of mileage of the two and any other payment pending the hearing and determination of its case.

At the same time, Mr Ogogoh wants the committee and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission ordered to commence investigations into the affairs of the board, particularly the false claims on mileage by the two and file their findings in court within two weeks.

CONSERVATORY ORDER

“Pending hearing and determination of this case, a conservatory order be issued against the respondents prohibiting them from discharging their duties at the State water agency,” said Mr Ogogoh.

The activists also want Mr Idd and Ms Mnyazi to resign and refund all the sitting allowances they have been paid from public coffers while breaking the law on conflict of interest.

The two, the petitioner say, ought to have declared their relationship after being appointed to the State corporation as required by law.

“The petitioner prays that an order be issued that all allowances, stipends and salaries earned and paid to the two be refunded to the exchequer with effect from the marriage or appointment,” the petition reads.

In its court papers, the civil society group is accusing the two of failing to disclose or declare their relationship hence want them to resign.

BOARD MEETINGS

In a supporting affidavit, Mr Ogogoh is also seeking temporary orders restraining the two from sitting in the board meetings until the complaint against them is heard and concluded.

Having been appointed as the chairman of the agency, the petitioner says Mr Idd became obligated to observe and uphold all tenets of good governance and code of conduct governing public bodies in relation to transparency and accountability to avoid conflict of interest in directing, management and administration of the State corporation.

“Contrary to the above expectation and being obligated to act as such, Mr Idd and Ms Mnyazi have turned the said State agency into a family enterprise as they are now married,” said the petitioner.

Zeddy reveals how Teacher Wanjiku became ‘Queen of Comedy’ despite recycled jokes

Published

on

After exposing Victor Ber on Wednesday, 1 July,  Zeddy is now back for Sleepy and Teacher Wanjiku!

According to the female comedian, fans need to know the dark side of the churchill show and it’s corrupt officials. She opened up about the unknown secrets of the show after the tragic deaths of Kasee and Njenga Mwalimu.

As seen on her post, those responsible for this are the Churchill show officials who neglect comedians letting them rot in poverty; after being ‘used’ to drive up number for the TV show.

Zeddy went on to add that  all this is planned and executed by the creative director, Victor Ber; who she strongly seems to dislike.

Zeddy on Sleepy

With her post making rounds on social media; Sleepy decided to respond by defending Ber and Wanjiku. But, little did he know that Zeddy would drag into the drama exposing why his job remains stable at the Churchill show.

This is however after Sleepy accused Zeddy of clout chasing; a statement that pushed Zeddy to leave no stone unturned as she savagely clapped back at her colleague!

Well apparently Sleepy has been getting favour from Ber since they are friends with Teacher Wanjiku – which is not a secret. Zeddy claims that Sleepy has been working behind Churchill’s show and to prove this; the lass promised fans Sleepy will be the first one to quit from the TV show.

Why female comedians never go far

With the likes of Jemutai, Mammito, and the few ladies we have seen once in a while on the show; Zeddy says that these ladies could not go far thanks to Victor Ber.

This is apparently because he makes sure to ‘kill’ their talents to pave way for his wife’s success as the Queen of comedy.

Zeddy exposes Churchill show’s officials

Berry never wanted any girl Comedians to succeed ndio bibi yake ashine, a reason why we have few female comedians ni juu ya ber,alihakikisha most wamedie ndio bibi yake ashine as “queen of comedy.” when Wanjiku put up her show at kicc ya girls are also funny most of the girls walikuwa threatened wakapiga in fear wasinyimwe churchill show,

Although she kept Wanjiku’s part short and brief, Zeddy made sure that her massage got out loud and clear. In conclusion, Zeddy warned Churchill against Sleepy who will one day back bite him. She wrote;

As we speak umefuata ber kufanya quarantine comedy as host ndio vitu zikirudi umtoke hope Churchill is seeing,you the most pretentious comedian I know,your reason for this post nikuplease ber ndio uendele kuhost qcc and as we speak am sure mko nyinyi watatu,wewe wanjiku na ber na pengine matayo ako hapo kando anachangia,ukweli utajulikana,wacha kujifanya vile unapenda Churchill na forever wewe humfight mbaka unaanzisha kids festival yako hapo garden city,Ber’s intention is and was clear to kill the show and all female Comedians ndio bibi yake ang’are but sadly mpango ya mungu ni tofauti, ukweli usemwe

Socialite Corazon pregnant with Maureen Waititu’s baby daddy

Published

on

American polymath Benjamin Franklin once said “three can keep a secret, if two of them are dead.”

Well Nairobi News has exclusively learnt that bootylicious and popular socialite Corazon Kwamboka is pregnant by fitness trainer Frankie Just Gym It (Frank Kiarie).

TOP SECRET

The two have been keeping the pregnancy a secret for months now and word from the streets is that Kwamboka is in her second trimester.

“Corazon is expecting and the baby daddy is Frankie Just Gym It. They are keeping it a secret. The information I got is that she is six months pregnant as we speak and if you may have noticed lately she hasn’t been posting full pictures of herself on Instagram,” a source privy to this development told Nairobi News.

Kwamboka and the fitness trainer sparked speculations a few months ago when she shared a picture of themselves spending some quality time together.

Later in a Q&A session with her followers on Instagram, Kwamboka was asked by one of her fans if she was now dating the fitness instructor to which she responded curtly: “We’re chilling.”

BREAKUP

Kwamboka and Frankie’s situation caught many by surprise as the dust hadn’t settled on news that the gym instructor had parted ways with her longtime girlfriend YouTubeer Maureen Waititu.

No one had seen that coming.

The two had served couple goals documenting their relationship on the internet, having been together for six years and in the process siring two sons.

Ironically, since Kwamboka and Frankie started ‘chilling’ they got a chance to work on a TV commercial on the importance of family planning. In the commercial the two advocate for use of condoms as one of family planning methods.

Kwamboka had earlier revealed that she intends to be a mother in 2020 having struggled with ovarian cysts which were successfully removed sometime last year through surgery.
