Rapper Octopizzo sues KTN

Published

on

Rapper Henry Ohanga, popularly known as Octopizzo, has sued KTN over a story it broke in January that accused him of being involved in the death of a 19 year-old Strathmore University student Kenneth Abom.

In a radio interview hosted by Shaffie Weru and Adelle Onyango, the ‘Number nane’ hit maker said he had already taken legal action as he blasted the station for bad reporting.

“The problem was what KTN reported, it wasn’t even about whatever was happening. It’s sad that in this generation media personalities don’t take time to report facts. It was so sad to see a big TV station like that just doing hype,” said Octopizzzo.

“ It was bad reporting and I took legal action. I just told them to talk to the police as they were the ones in charge of the case and even the people who did the false reporting got their letters,” he added.

SCUFFLE IN HOUSE

The family of 19-year-old Kenneth Abom suspects the rapper injured their son on the head during a scuffle at his house in January.

Complications from the injury might have led to the boy’s death, the parents suspect.

The rapper denied the allegations, saying that Kenneth broke into his house.

Neighbours said the rapper was seen pursuing the boy from his house but he was immediately told to stop because Abom lived in the estate.

According to the deceased’s brother, Mr Paul Abom, Kenneth came running to the house which is on the fourth floor with a cut on the right side of his head and a blood-stained shirt.

JUMPED THROUGH WINDOW

“He went straight to the bathroom to clean himself up and the next thing we knew he had jumped through the window to the ground,” said Paul.

“He was rushed to Nairobi Women’s Hospital and then referred to Kenyatta National Hospital where doctors [said] that he would recover,” Paul said.

He later succumbed to his injuries.

The rapper, in the radio interview, said the incident left him and his young family traumatised.

He said he had to talk to his daughter’s teachers to protect her from pupils who may make fun of her following the allegations.

Why Amos Wako was banned from setting foot on US Soil

Published

on

The US has banned Busia Senator Amos Wako, his wife Flora Ngaira and son Julius from entering the country and doing business with it over corruption allegations while he was attorney-general.

In a statement, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo also banned Mr Wako’s wife Flora Ngaira, and son, Julius Wako.

This means that Mr Wako, wife and son will not be allowed to visit America or transact any business in that country with companies affiliated to Americans.

“Today (Monday), the Department designates former Kenyan Attorney General Amos Sitswila Wako due to his involvement in significant corruption,” said the statement that was released on Monday evening.

Mr Pompeo said the designation was made under Section 7031(c) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and related programs appropriations Act, 2019 (Div. F, P.L. 116-6), as carried forward by the continuing appropriations Act, 2020 (Div. A, P.L. 116-59).

Section 7031(c) provides that, in cases where the Secretary of State has credible information that officials of foreign governments have been involved in significant corruption, those individuals and their immediate family members are ineligible for entry into the United States.

The law also requires the Secretary of State to publicly or privately designate such officials and their immediate family members.

“Today’s action sends a strong signal that the United States is a valuable partner in Kenya’s fight against corruption.  Economic prosperity for all Kenyans is only possible by defeating the scourge of corruption, which also requires a functional, fair, and transparent criminal justice system,” said Mr Pompeo

He added that the United States will continue to stand with all Kenyans as they strive to curb and punish corruption in Kenya.

Mr Wako may still be allowed onto US soil if he visits as a member of the Kenyan delegation to the UN meetings or if the UN invites him, even though his movement could be restricted.

Standard Group journalist Jonathan Komen’s daughter, June Cheptoo Koech, is the second-best overall student in the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).

June scored 439 marks out of 500 marks and was among the three candidates; Flavian Koech and Sean Michael who tied in the second position nationally. The top student this year, Michael Munyiri, scored 440 marks.

Reacting to the news, her father Komen, who has been christened The Lion by colleagues in the newsroom, said that in Cheptoo, a real lioness had been born.“They call me the lion in the newsroom, well, today I want to announce that a real lioness has been found,” said Komen.

Cheptoo sat her examination at Sangalo Central Primary in Nandi County, a public school.

Speaking to Standard Digital on phone, Komen described her daughter as an avid reader with a cool head, adding that her performance did not surprise the family having scored 446 marks in the final mock examinations.

Komen, a household name among sports journalists in the country courtesy of his nice sports stories has made the headlines, not because of an eye-catching story, but because his daughter is among the best in the country this year.
