MP’s son was reunited with wife days before his death



Bomet East MP Beatrice Kones’ son who allegedly committed suicide last week, had domestic problems with the wife that were ironed out days before his death, The Nairobian has been told.

Doctors said that Collins Kipyegon Kalya, 39, the second-born in the family of four, died at the War Memorial Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit in Nakuru, where he was rushed.

On the eve of his death, Kipyegon shared a post on social media indicating that he was planning to commit suicide. Minutes later, his close friends who saw the post, found him unconscious at his Kaimunyi home in Nakuru. He also recorded a video of the drugs he had ingested, thus attracting the attention of close friends who rushed him to hospital in an attempt to save his life.

A close relative hinted that some family members had met to iron out some issues the deceased had with his wife who is the daughter of a retired chief, two days before the incident.

“That was two days before he died. Family members from both sides met, then he left for Nakuru, leaving behind his wife who proceeded to her parents’ home in Bomet,” the relative divulged.

The source added that: “I think he was not satisfied with the talks. Sometimes back, he was admitted at a rehabilitation centre. He was bipolar, though the condition wasn’t very serious. His dosage of the drugs he used to commit suicide was one a day. But on that night, he took about 20 tablets to end his life.”

Before he died, Kipyegon was jobless, while his wife is employed at a power company in Naivasha. This, according to a family member, could also have pushed him to commit suicide.

The relative told The Nairobian that, “He was employed as a driver with a state corporation sometimes back, then as a clerical officer in another government agency, but he quit and was planning to start a business. ”

The alumnus of Tenwek High School will be buried at their home tomorrow (Saturday) since he was yet to complete constructing a home in Sotik, where his father had allocated him land. His father, Kipkalya Kiprono Kones, served in government in the 1990s and was briefly a minister for Roads in 2008. He was MP – for Bomet and nominated – between 1988 and 2008. He died in June 2008 in a plane crash in Narok, alongside then Sotik MP Lorna Laboso.

Woman writes list of tips for ex’s new girlfriend



While many people have absolutely no interest in seeing their ex after a break up, others are determined to stay friends.

It can be extremely difficult as the nature of the relationship changes, but one of the hardest parts is watching your ex move on with someone else.

But one woman went to extreme lengths to help her former partner, Jacob, when it came to his new girlfriend – writing her a list of tips and advice for being with him.

As well as listing some of his favourite things – including the colour red, Corona and 1800 liquor – she also listed things she should avoid.

She also gave some advice on being his girlfriend, including ignoring negative gossip about him and not being offended when he just sits in front of the TV all night.

She offered tips on hanging around with his mates and warned her to never finish a Netflix series without him.

She also gave details on their relationship, including the date of their first meeting.

Jacob shared the list on Twitter, and people don’t really know what to make of it.


Many people were slightly freaked out by the whole thing, saying that some of the points suggest serious red flags.

One wrote: “If someone I was dating gave me a letter from their ex we would immediately be finished. I would not date anyone who tweets this garbage either.”


Another commented: “That’s like the kinda list I write when someone has to look after my cat because it can’t look after itself – not a grown ass man.”

One man commented: “Any woman would be lucky to avoid.”

Another pointed out one particularly worrying line, saying: “You will constantly hear negative things about him from other people.” Omg lol! I missed that on the first read through. All you need to know right there.”

One woman wrote: “She knows that much about you because she paid attention because she loved you enough to want to know everything about you. I wish at least ONE of the guys I’ve ever dated would’ve taken the time to know even half of this about me. This kinda stuff doesn’t happen often enough.”

“Why should I have to love my body? Because it grew two humans?

“Yes, I’m very proud of my body because it’s been through so much in the last few years,” the mum posted.

“But does being proud of my body mean that I have to love the way it looks? Hell no. When I look in the mirror I don’t love what I see, but I’m not sad about that.

“You don’t need to feel pressured into loving your body and it’s OK if you don’t. Love your body? I’m so happy that you do.

“But don’t love your body? That’s alright too.”

Chantelle, understood to be from Australia, also wrote a heartwarming post on her blog The Losing Mumma , in which she admitted she has ” cellulite , stretch marks ,loose skin breastfeeding boobs and a mum tum”.

But the blogger stressed it is “absolutely fine” to hate all these things and mothers don’t need to pretend not to.

Kanze Dena narrates how she used to wash clothes, dishes to earn a living



State House spokesperson Kanze Dena on Wednesday revealed that she has done several menial jobs before getting to where she is right now.

Speaking during an interview on Ghetto Radio, Dena urged youths not to be choosy when it comes to jobs, noting that most people start from humble beginnings.

She further stated that she once worked at her grandfather’s cafeteria where she used to peel potatoes before scaling up to become a waitress.

“There are a number of opportunities for the youth in our country. The Government is emphasizing on technical training to ensure the youth have the skills required for various jobs.

“There are various projects the Government is undertaking under the #Big4Agenda across the country. These projects require skilled labor where our youth can get job opportunities, even as the Government works on a long term solution,” she said.

Dena had good news for the youth as she revealed that the government was in the process of creating a database where young people will be linked up with jobs that fit their qualifications.

“The Government is also creating a database through the National Employment Authority where the youth can register so that they can be linked up with jobs that fit their profiles whenever these jobs come up,” she added.
