VIDEO: Murathe finally reveals the genesis of his beef with DP Ruto, says he corruptly presided over party nominations

Published

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA in Nairobi

Former Jubilee Party vice-chairman David Murathe has spilled the beans. During a live interview with Citizen TV’s Hussein Muhamed, Murathe said one of the reasons he was bitter with Deputy President William Ruto was because the latter presided over a nomination process which was  below par and ridden with corrupt practices.

“The issue I have with Ruto is personal,” he said. “A lot of them did not lose the nominations fairly and there was massive corruption around the whole exercise,” he added.

Asked why he never spoke up at the time, the former Gatanga MP said “Just like Maradona, when someone scores and the referee says it is a goal, you have to accept and move on.”

This was the latest salvo aimed at the DP as Murathe continued with his onslaught against him. He also doubled down on claims that the law does not explicitly bar the President from serving as a Deputy President.

Mr Murathe, who resigned from his party position ta few weeks ago, also claimed that the anti-corruption conference held last week was convened to discuss Dr Ruto and that he was surprised to see him in attendance.

Murathe has, on several occasions, vowed to do anything possible in his capacity to stop Dr Ruto from succeeding President Kenyatta in 2022, including seeking constitutional interpretation of Dr Ruto’s eligibility in court.

Kenya Railways has announced that it will add five more coaches to the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) passenger train that shuttles between Nairobi and Mombasa to cater for the rise in passenger numbers in the festive season.

The extra coaches that will cater to both economy and first-class passengers will be added starting December 22, 2019 to January 3, 2020.

The train service, dubbed Madaraka Express, is currently fully booked for the Christmas season as Kenyans seek convenience, fast and affordable travel.

“With the exception of Dec. 28, the morning train from Mombasa and the afternoon train from Nairobi will feature an additional first-class and four economy class coaches from Dec. 22, to Jan. 3, 2020,” said Kenya Railways in a notice.

Kenya Railways has normally increased the train coaches during the holiday season as demand surges and has steadily increased coaches on the Nairobi-Mombasa route since the SGR passenger train was launched in June 2017.

The rising demand for the SGR passenger train service has however dealt a huge blow to commuter bus operators.

2019 saw many celebrity relationships breakups that we can’t help but feel sad about how some ended. There were cracks but we still wish they survived.

Below are celebrity breakups that left us feeling woiye.

  1. Eric OMondi and Chantal

Eric Omondi and his ex-lover Chantal Grazioli broke the hearts of many when they announced that they had indeed broken up.

They were couple goals and we are yet to come to terms with the break up, after all we are Instagram-in-laws.

According to Chantal, the breakup was as a result of discussions they held together from the month of April where they resolved to amicably part ways.

2. Otile Brown and Vera Sidika

Vera Sidika and Otile Brown’s break up hit us like thunder, the signs were there but we did not expect it to happen so soon.

The couple parted over irreconcilable differences such as poor Twa Twa Twa skills and borrowing money from Vera.

They broke up late last year.

The ex couple has since moved on to new mates. Otile is currently dating an Ethiopian babe Nabayet. Vera Sidika on the other hand is dating Jimmy Chansa.

It might have been last year but we are still heartbroken.

3. Chepchumba Cherus

Cherus, a TV producer and host, parted ways with her husband Josh known by many for his performance in Tusker Project Fame along side Amos hence the duo ‘Amos and Josh’.

In the last few months, the two young lovers have had endless squabbles over personal differences and they finally called it quits, with ‘Chep’ moving out of their home.

“Yes Josh and I broke up like three months now. Being a single mum is amazing since I get to enjoy my own space.

Furthermore, my parents separated when I was barely 13 years and my mum took over the parenting mantle so I don’t consider this an issue, I probably am following her footsteps,” she says.

The pair had been together for three years and are blessed with a cute one-year old daughter whom they are co parenting very well despite their squabbles.

The news of the breakup hit social media the moment Rnaze took to Instagram to reveal that the two are no longer together.

Natalie also revealed that they had parted ways due to physical abuse in their relationship.

“I was basically physically abused . If anyone saw what happened please speak out. Men should not ever get that far no matter what.

If you know Rnaze you know he aint shit. Brokest nigga I have been with, always prancing around creating a façade.

Selfish AF and always riding on my wave to be famous. If you know you know,” she posted.

Learn from us, says Omondi as he reveals ex-lover’s new move

Published

on

There is no love lost between comedian Eric Omondi and his Italian ex-girlfriend Chantal Grazioli.

This is after Omondi in a message to his followers advocating against suicide and murder over love, revealed that Grazioli will be in Kenya for Christmas.

Omondi stated that the youth need to learn from his relationship with the beauty that breakups are never that serious and do not need to end badly. 

“Guess whose back for Christmas? This still goes out to all the young people out there, I hope this will be a good lesson that it doesn’t always have to end badly. Don’t kill yourself or physically hurt people because you are separating or can’t be together anymore. It’s never really that serious.

On whether they are getting back together, he noted that they were friends before turning into lovers; a fact, he said, will never change.

“The people you meet in your life are precious, they may leave today and be back in the future or never at all. Chanty and I were the BEST of friends before anything else and that will never change. Chanty amekuja Krisi, hebu let’s welcome her to Kenya,” added Omondi.

The split

According to Chantal, their breakup was amicable. A decision they took after having a sit down early in the year after four-years of dating.

In a post after Omondi made their split public in April, Grazioli stated that she will always cherish the moments she shared with the comedian.

“Hello guys, I hope this finds you well I have been silent for a while…Eric and I have had long discussions for the past one month. As you all know my family lives in Italy and it’s been really challenging for both of us.

“I love Eric and I will always love him and we are okay; we created the best of moments together, we shared our dreams and visions but most importantly we shared our lives. And I will always cherish every single moment.

As I write this post I want to ask God to always protect you and your dreams until our paths meet again. I hate goodbyes so it’s not a goodbye it’s more like a see you later. I will always be here for you anytime, any day Eric Omondi,” she wrote.

Divulging further, Omondi, at the time, revealed that Grazioli had also requested to permanently stay in Italy after years of travelling back and forth to exclusively visit him.

“Whenever she jetted into Kenya, she always came to visit me. With her tourist visa, she cannot work in the country. And, she recently asked me if I can allow her to permanently stay in Italy and get formal employment there.

“And because I had seen her stay in my house doing nothing meaningful, I saw it wise to grant her request. Given we would stay far apart from each other over an unknown period, we reached a mutual agreement to end the relationship.”

Omondi has a son with media personality Jacque Maribe.
