Ruto-Nanok ‘poverty-tourism’

Published

on

Deputy President William Ruto and Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok have come under fire on social media for what the online community has interpreted as ‘poverty-tourism’ in Turkana county.

This after photos of the two leaders emerged on social media showing them standing over barefooted women and naked children in weather-beaten clothes.

The photos were taken at the weekend during Dr Ruto’s three-day tour in Turkana County where he launched several projects.

Kenyans on Twitter could not understand how Dr Ruto and Mr Nanok presented themselves to the villagers.

Turkana County has currently been on the spotlight after pictures and videos of the Turkana people reported to be dying of acute starvation were shared online.

“Shame on you! William Ruto and Governor Nanok. You arrived here as if you are tourists but you both have been in office since 2013. This is exactly what we elected you to do. We elected you to fix this poverty, hunger, lack of water, schools etc… but you never did. Shame on you,” said @ItsMutai.

“Anaenda kuwaona na mkono tupu rich kid akirudi mashambani,” tweeted @OyollaJames.

TV siren Lulu Hassan says she’s also victim of online shopping fraudsters

Lulu Hassan and her husband Rahid Abdalla wanted to buy a new television set

They contacted an online seller who offered to sell them TV that was bigger than the one they had at that time

Lulu left the house to pick the TV while Rashid was to prepare space where it would be fixed

– She returned home empty handed after handing over the money to the fraudster

Swahili news anchor Lulu Hassan has narrated a painful experience with online fraudsters who lured her to buying a television set that was nowhere.

While narrating the horrendous experience during the Sunday, January 19, news on Citizen TV, the fluent Swahili speaker said they wanted to buy a new television set, larger than the one they were using at that time.

Being a tech savvy, she and her husband Rashid Abdalla quickly looked for sellers via social media and got connected to a trader who offered to sell them the TV at a relatively cheaper price.

The two agreed to meet up for the transaction and since the TV was huge, she decided to go in a pickup for her to ferry it home with ease.

“I showed up for the meeting to transact with the trader, I went with a pickup car. I gave him the money and he told me just wait here shortly, let me go to the latrine. I never saw him again,” said Lulu.

Interestingly, all along her hubby was at home preparing the house for their newly acquired “huge TV”

To Rashid’s disappointment, his humble soft spoken wife showed up at home empty handed. No TV.

“I had removed the TV that we had and prepared space for the new one. To my surprise, she showed up at home with red eyes, I knew things were not good, the TV I had waited for was nowhere,” said Rashid.

Although she did not disclose how much she lost, Lulu suggested some of the fraudsters may be using same unorthodox means to lure their victims and steal their money without the customer suspecting anything.

“I don’t know how these people do it or what they use but from experience things are bad…However, not all of them are bad, there are others who genuinely sell quality products,” she said.

There is a tremendous rise in online shopping not only in Kenya but also across the world.

However, the more people join the online shopping, the more the risks and the higher the number of fraudsters.

Experts advise that you should not pay for a product until you see it. Check around and verify authenticity of an online shopper.

Stop shortcuts and go for genuine dealers or suppliers of products as majority of the fraudsters sell their products at very cheap prices to lure customers.

Chris Kirubi recently admitted having cancer brought him closer to God

Now, he feels like marriage should never be a rushed endeavour

The businessman advised his fans to always proceed with moderation and wait for the blessing of marriage to come at its own time

Kirubi added rushing into matrimony might cause people to marry the wrong partners

Chris Kirubi is a business mogul, an astute entrepreneur and a man after God’s heart.

However, people have always wondered how a successful guy like him chose not to search for his missing rib after being single for nearly two decades.

During an interview with Business Daily, the Cytonn Investments boss chose to clear the air on why his marital status has always been stuck on single.

The 79-year-old billionaire said he is not willing to chase after the idea of marriage just to please the society.

According to him, rushing into holy matrimony can only lead to a massive heartbreak.

Apparently, when people rush into marriage without sitting back and being patient, they end up getting hitched to the wrong person.

The tycoon reckons that marriage is a blessing but still insists everything happens in its own time.

“Marriage comes to you and it is a blessing, but you do not go chasing it around because you will get the wrong partner. If I am blessed then I will be blessed,” Kirubi said.

Not too long ago, the wealthy businessman admitted his battle with cancer brought him closer to God.

He has learnt God is the most powerful being who never abandons his children even at their lowest moments.

“It is a shame we always go to God when we need Him, but God will never turn you away because you came to Him later rather than earlier,” Kirubi noted.

Prince Harry: It brings me great sadness that it has come to this – VIDEO

By JUDITH GICOBI

Britain’s Prince Harry conveyed “great sadness” on Sunday after he and his wife Meghan royal titles were taken away as part of their agreement with the Queen.

Harry says he saw this as the only way for him to go in the aim for “a more peaceful life” with his wife and young son Archie.

“It brings me great sadness that it has come to this,” Harry told supporters of his Africa-based charity in London.

These were his first emotional remarks since the exit from the royals whose goal was to calm the crisis shaking Britain’s ancient monarchy.

Harry was also frank in that he has been faced with some uneasiness and anxiety since taking the big step of resigning from his royal duties and embarking on a new journey and life abroad.

He was mentally prepared to lose the lavish lifestyle supported by the public money. But what pained him the most was losing his military titles and patronages he got after serving two tours in Afghanistan with the British Army.

The couple agreed to pay back approximately taxpayers money $3.1 million used to renovate their home near Windsor Castle.

“I know I haven’t always gotten it right but, as far as this goes, there really was no other option,” Harry said.
