VIDEO: DP Ruto is the most corrupt living person in Kenya, says Joho as he sues 3 Jubilee leaders for “linking him to illegal drug trade”

Published

on

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has accused Deputy President William Ruto of sponsoring attacks against him over his alleged involvement in drug trafficking.

Yesterday, Joho dared Ruto to face him directly instead of sending his “subjects” to malign his reputation.

Ruto allies recently launched attacks against Joho with Nandi Governor Stephen Sang and MPs Oscar Sudi (Kapseret), Kimani Ichung’wa (Kikuyu) and Didmus Barasa (Kimilili MP) linking him to drugs trade.

Joho, through his lawyer, has written to the International Police Organisation (Interpol), seeking clarification on reports his name is in the list of wanted drug barons as claimed by his attackers.

Client’s interest

“It is therefore in our client’s interest, the interests of all residents of the county of Mombasa and the nation as a whole that your office informs us on the authenticity or lack thereof of the statement,” Joho’s letter to Interpol, through his lawyer DBM Mosota, says in part.

He was referring to a letter circulating on social media and dated November 10, 2018, purportedly from Interpol. It lists Joho as a fugitive citing ‘statements’ from the ongoing trial of Akasha brothers in the US.

Addressing the Press yesterday in Mukuru kwa Njenga, Joho said Kenyans could not agree to be led by a person such as Ruto.

“I cannot engage in a war of words with those people because I know they have been sent by their master William Ruto,” said Joho.

“I dare you Ruto. Stop sending your sidekicks, come out and face me yourself,” said Joho during a meeting at Mukuru kwa Njenga slums in Nairobi.

The governor had accompanied ODM nominee for the Embakasi South parliamentary seat Irshad Sumra to seek clearance from the constituency’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officers.

Joho said he would seek legal redress against the utterances by Ruto allies.

In the letter to Interpol, Joho wants to know if he is being sought for charges of organised crimes, including drugs trafficking.

This is not the first time Joho has called out Ruto in public – with their attacks against each other widely seen as setting the stage for a 2022 political showdown.

Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has filed a defamation suit against Jubilee politicians; Nandi Governor Stephen Sang, Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi and Kimani Ichung’wah of Kikuyu for claiming he was a drug peddler.

Following the suit filed by Governor Joho’s lawyers on Tuesday, Mr. Sudi, Mr. Sang and Mr. Ichung’wah are now required to appear at the Milimani Law Courts within 15 days.

“Should you fail to enter an appearance within the time mentioned above, the Plaintiff may proceed with the suit and judgement may be given in your absence,” read the court papers.

“You may appear in this suit by entering an appearance either personally or by duly appointed advocates.”

Governor Joho on Sunday asked the Jubilee leaders to apologise to him within 24 hours after the leaders led by Governor Sang accused him of misleading the country on the handshake and “destroying many youth through the drug business that he runs.”

The trio, however, maintained their stand with Mr. Sudi, while addressing a press conference on the same day, urging Joho to instead apologise to Kenyans and the people of Mombasa for engaging in “unlawful” business.

Mr. Sudi further alleged that Joho’s name was in a list that had been tabled to parliament by the late George Saitoti in 2010, adding that: “Please go to court with your lawyers, we also have lawyers and we shall assemble and table both the Akasha and George Saitoti reports.”

The Mombasa county chief, in a rejoinder on Monday, tossed Deputy President William Ruto’s name in the mix saying he (Ruto) was behind the attacks against him.

Mr. Joho spoke at Mukuru Kwa Njenga after accompanying Irshad Sumra to have his name cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to vie for the Embakasi South parliamentary seat.

“I cannot engage these people that I do not know because I know they have been sent by their master; William Ruto. So the only thing I can say is let Ruto stop sending his subjects and speak alone,” said Mr. Joho.

The governor’s lawyers have further written to the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) apparently seeking clarification over reports that his name is on the list of sought-after drug barons as purported by the trio.

Zhe Fang Liu, a photographer who is on tour in Kenya has declared his underlying love for Ngina Kenyatta, the only daughter to President Uhuru Kenyatta.

In a story done by the Nairobian, Liu claimed he loved the president’s daughter for her selfless nature even though he had never met her.

The publication also reported that Liu runs a photography agency in Los Angeles and China adding that he has been living in the US since his parents migrated there when he was 5-years-old.

The 28-year-old is optimistic that he will get a chance to express his love for Ngina before he leaves the country in June and even marry her.

“My parents always continuously asks when I’m going to get married. I just got overwhelmed and decided to tell people that I’m going to marry Ngina,” he stated.

“So, I figured I wanted to at least go on a date and cook her dinner to see if we have the same values. They say the beauty of a woman must be seen from her eyes as they are the doorway to her heart,” he added.

“He should get a Huduma Namba and it will increase his chances tremendously,” Solo Ngatia stated.

“Everything in Kenya belongs to China,” Isaac Mugiadded.

“That’s good. The dowry itself could offset our Chinese loan. Take her,” @CryptoKenya , another tweep, weighed in.

“To avoid war and make peace among kingdoms, in the Game of Thrones, they’d marry from one another’s tribe to cement that,” yet another netizen remarked.

Ngina Kenyatta is the second-born daughter of the president and her siblings are Jomo who is the firstborn, and Jaba who is the last born.

Kiss Fm presenter Linda Nyangweso: I felt a lot of shame eating in public

Published

Kiss Fm presenter Linda Nyangweso has opened up about her struggle with weight.

In an episode of the ‘Legally Clueless’ podcast, the presenter shared how having weight issues made her afraid of even eating in public.

“The truth is I feel like every woman is insecure right? I have always had body insecurity issues because I just don’t look like the other girls who I am told are supposed to be the beautiful ones, it’s hard to be a plus sized girl. I went to an artsy school where everyone was limber, skinny and blonde and then I joined an industry where beauty is more marketable than anything. It has been an ongoing insecurity. I used to hate taking pictures because it was evident that I was very different. I was not only super short, I was also super fat and so you kind of standout standing next to these tall Amazonian girls around you,” Linda confessed.

“I had to stop that because I like who I am, I deserve to take up space. I constantly feel like I have to apologize for existing because I didn’t look like what you think I should look like. I stopped feeling that way when I realized that if I’m constantly apologizing for existing I am not actually living.”

Linda

Only when she was at peace with her image did things easy up on her. She said now she doesn’t mind much.

“I eat and I don’t feel shame about it, I used to feel a lot of shame about eating especially in public because I always felt that when people see me eat they think I am constantly eating. I stopped eating in public, I never ate is school because I was afraid people assumed that is all I am doing anyway. These days I am shameless about that. I can say I am hungry and I don’t feel like that makes me look fatter,” Linda said.
