Digital vehicle number plates set for January

Published

on

Motorists will from January acquire new high-tech vehicle number plates after the government sought designs from three undisclosed countries.

Correctional Services Principal Secretary Zainab Hussein told Parliament that the State targets to replace the current plates by January with motorists expected to pay Sh3,000 for each.

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) said it will directly issue a fresh tender to circumvent a legal hitch that blocked the Prisons department from picking a firm to supply smart number plates.

“We have sent a team to go to three countries to design a system that uses our own local material to produce the securitised digitised new generation number plates by January 2020,” Ms Hussein told the National Assembly Committee on Administration and National Security.

The push for the smart plates comes in the wake of increased duplication of the current ones by tax- evasion cartels and criminals.

City detectives on Thursday evening arrested a suspect found repackaging sugar from a sack labelled Kabras Sugar Company into packets labelled Naivas.

Detectives from Parklands acting on intelligence raided Heykal Packers and Distributors godown situated within Atlantis Business Park in Embakasi and arrested one suspect.

According to DCI, the suspect was found repacking sugar and rice to 1kg and 2kg packets labeled Naivas and Economy.

They also found several other brands  being repackaged at the warehouse. They Red Rose, Mama Afric, Biriani rice, Thai Long and Vietnam rice.

Police seized the rice and sugar for further tests by public health officers.

The godown has since been closed as detectives seek to establish whether some of the documents presented are authentic.

Last week, an owner of a godown in Kariobangi evaded arrest after detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) raided the facility and impounded tonnes of expired rice.

The detectives seized tonnes of expired foodstuff and arrested several suspects found working inside the godown.

Eko Dydda’s troubled marriage

Published

on

Kenyan gospel rapper Eko Dydda has finally been exposed by his wife, Cynthia Ayugi, for cheating on her with a friend after months of denial.

Two months ago, the rapper was reported to have kicked his wife and the mother of his two sons out of their home after she confronted him over an affair with another woman.

The rapper however denied the claims by posting a video of himself, his wife and their two sons with the caption:

“Dida ambia wasee wa rumours Psalms 23, What is bound in heaven is also bound on earth.”

DISMISSED RUMOURS

He would later do an interview with Edaily where he once again dismissed the rumours.

“You know me. I cannot dare do all that which is being alleged online. My wife and children are with me and I do not know where the rumour came from,” he said.

But from his wife’s latest claims, it is clear that their marriage is now on the rocks over claims of infidelity.

CHEATING HUSBAND

In a recent post, Ayugi accused her husband of cheating on her with a friend, stating that she is not going to remain silent anymore.

“Breaking someone’s marriage is not Godly. I invited you as a friend, today unasema ambia Eko not to bring me home because love yenu haita grow. It’s not a battle @EkoDydda you don’t have to hide it anymore your ‘Dope’ is free to love you, sometimes it’s healthy to walk away. Na leo ndio ile siku I will not hide it for fame, money. I will stand with the truth and will never lie to people,” she wrote.
