Echesa: I don’t know why the president sacked me

Published

on

Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa says he doesn’t know why he was relieved of his duties by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Echesa spoke on Saturday at Marina Village in his Kakamega County home turf where he made his first public appearance 24 hours after being fired by the president.

The Head of State also clarified that this decision was aimed at enhancing service delivery and orienting the government towards delivering the Big Four Agenda.

JUBILEE AGENDA

“I am cool and also want to urge my supporters and Luhyas to remain calm. I remain grateful to the President for offering me an opportunity to serve in his cabinet,” said Echesa.

“It is within President Kenyatta’s mandate to hire and fire but still I would also want to know what happened (why I was sacked),” he further said.

According to Nairobi News Echesa, who is believed to be a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, also received backing from a section of elected leaders.

“We are not happy with the decision. It was tough selling the Jubilee agenda in Western and Echesa was among people who went out of their way to propagate Jubilee and create in-roads for Kenyatta to access the region,” Mumias East MP Benjamin Washiali said.

This is not the first time that a Kenyan man has entered into matrimonial union with another man in the US, In 2016, Mr Ben Gitau, 33, and Mr Steve Damelin got married at Ann Arbor, Michigan.

In a related development in February, 2018, a self proclaimed Kenyan Lesbian married an American woman in a low key ceremony held in Dallas, Texas, USA.

Manuella Mumbi tied the knot with her American lover,  Lisa Webb Clay.

Last week, the Court of Appeal in Kenya granted gays and lesbians the freedom to register their own umbrella lobby.

In a judgment delivered on Friday, a majority decision of the Court of Appeal held that human beings should not be denied their fundamental rights because of how they choose to live their lives.

This position was taken by judges Philip Waki, Asike Makhandia and Martha Koome while affirming the decision of the High Court.

The birth of my first child took a toll on me emotionally and mentally-Lilian Muli

Published

on

When I was poached by Citizen TV in 2010, I had lost so much weight.

I weighed 56 kilos at the time after having my baby.

This, the Citizen TV journalist explained, was after the birth of her first born son, Josh.

I didn´t look nice by the way, but everyone was like how did you lose after having a baby?

What a lot of people didn´t know was that the birth of my first child took a toll on me emotionally and mentally.

Many might have been impressed by how fast she lost her baby weight which to ladies, is a major concern especially for good looks.

However, it wasn´t a result of something good that had happened.

So I went through an episode of post-natal depression so I couldn´t eat, I couldn´t function.

It was hard for me.

TV Queen, Lilian Muli actually hardly ate well and it took a toll on her.

The produce

However, all these had its good side.

¨Slim Possible¨ was born soon after.

When I finally got over that I got into that serious healthy eating program and I really watched how I ate and worked out religiously.

So when I walked into Citizen TV my boss was like ´Hold up, how old is your baby?´

And he asked ´How are you this tiny?´

So I told him about my depression and my deliberate decision to put on weight.

And then he said ´Okay fine, you are the person we have been looking for.´

And so…Slim possible was born.

´Slim Possible´ is a show on weight loss.

Ringtone terms ‘Baby Mama’ claim serious

After Xtian Dela used an expose release from a lady who said she was Ringtone’s ‘baby mama’, insinuating he is a dead-beat father, Ringtone posted the same on his Instagram, making fun out of it.

“I have not paid Xtian Dela to expose me so that he makes me popular. He is just doing his job. Stop spoiling my good name and that of Xtian Dela. This matter is serious and Kenyans deserve an answer,” Ringtone responded.

The lady had reported that the Tenda Wema singer had fathered her child and has refused to cooperate in providing child support. She further claimed that she has been having court battles with the gospel singer.
