Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru is set to wed the love of her life city lawyer Kamotho Waiganjo in a Kikuyu traditional wedding (ngurario).

The ceremony is set to take place on July 13, 2019 in Kirinyanga county at Kiamugumo primary school.

Ngurario is the final part of the Kikuyu wedding to formalize the marriage under the Gikuyu rites.

After the event, the woman is considered completely take and part of her husband’s family and cannot marry another man.

In the past, it was done before the girl went to the man’s home but today, it is sometimes done after even the couple have children.

There is usually no need for a church or civil wedding after that.

MANDATORY

To some Kikuyus, even if one has done a church wedding, ngurario is mandatory.

The ceremony begins with slaughtering of a goat by the groom and his friends and relatives at the bride’s home.

The knife used is given by his soon-to-be mother-in-law, who has to be enticed with a gift to release the knife.

Once the goat is slaughtered in the Kikuyu way, the meat is roasted.

There are three parts of the goat which are involved in the ceremony: A goat’s right arm, ribs and entrails.

Ole Sereni hotel win big in road reserve land case

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

The Kenya National Highways Authority has lost a case over a parcel of land on which the 5 Star Ole Sereni hotel was built.

According to court documents, the National Land Commission (NLC) awarded the hotel a notice to vacate the land on which a road to the Internal Container Depot in Nairobi is being built.

Justice Bernard Eboso, however, reversed NLC decision explaining that the owners of the hotel had not been granted a proper hearing.

He also observed that the commission had produced conflicting dates when the directors were offered a chance for a hearing.

In a gazette notice, the commission had claimed that it invited the directors between January 30, 2017 and February 2, 2017.

NLC’s verdict before the revocation, however, indicated that the directors had been invited on March 27, 2017.

In its defense, Ole Sereni argued that it had purchased the land in question from a company identified as Swan Carriers Limited in 2007.

“Upon acquiring the two properties, the applicant obtained relevant development approvals and established the hotel thereon.

“The development took about three years. Ole Sereni Hotel is a reputable facility in the hospitality industry,” the hotel’s representatives told the court.

In July 2017, the state revoked titles for 136 parcels of land it intended to acquire for the construction of the Southern Bypass.

The bypass connects Mombasa Road and the Nairobi-Nakuru Highway.

At the time, the state explained that it had ruled the parcels as belonging to the public after listening to several parties in the matter.

Murkomen speaks how the BBI might end Raila’s political career

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Elgeyo-Marakwet County Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has explained a theory on how the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) could end Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga’s political career.

The former Senate Majority Leader explained that the position of an imperial President could potentially lead to the end of Raila Odinga’s career.

“When you are making law, imagine your worst enemy as the person who will be implementing that it. I want to tell those who are pushing for an imperial presidency, please, just imagine your worst competitor as the next president.

“Will you be comfortable if he gets all those powers? If you are comfortable, then bring it (BBI report) tomorrow and we will pass it,” he added.

Murkomen went on to warn Deputy President William Ruto’s rivals not to support the revision of a section of the law stating that the DP’s camp has gone through the document and know what works for them and what does not work.

He added that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy Ruto are still together and people will be surprised when the next step is taken.

“Sisi si wapumbavu, tunakuangalia tunapanga tunasema iko nini hapo ndani. Ok hii si mzuri hii si mzuri lakini ata ikipita tutanyorosha hii na hii.

“Mtashangaa nini itafanyika kutoka kesho na siku zitakazo fuata. Acha nisiseme zaidi lakini jueni ya kwamba our captain President Uhuru Kenyatta hawezi kuhepa,” he added.

The Senator went on to warn Raila Odinga’s supporters not to come back after the 2022 general elections to protest against the same change of law they are trying to implement forcefully.

“Let them not come after 2022 protesting against the very laws they are trying to implement forcefully,” he asserted.

In the BBI report, the presidential model of governance involves empowering the President to appoint a Prime Minister, which Murkomen pointed out as some of the privileges, which if bestowed upon his preferred presidential winner in 2022, could mark the downfall of his political rivals.

“We scored an away goal. How does it feel if you pay for; live stream in all media houses, professional hecklers, transportation for goons from all quarters, coaching of sycophantic speakers…only for your worst enemy to steal the show, become the talk of the town, and worse still drives his point home politely, smoothly, firmly and deeply like falling snow?,” he said.
