Ruto: No one owes me political debt-VIDEO

Published

on

Deputy President William Ruto on Sunday said that no community owed him any political debt even as his critics threatened to push for his impeachment for allegedly disobeying the President.

Speaking at separate events in Nairobi and Nyandarua, Dr Ruto hit out at some politicians in Jubilee telling them to stop tribalism, propaganda and division as it is against the party’s ideals.

He said that he will not be cowed by those against him, adding that he is the elected Deputy President and would continue criss-crossing the country initiating and inspecting projects.

“I am now the one in charge of the country since the President is out of the country and not the other group. I have been doing the work I was elected together with President Uhuru Kenyatta to develop the country,” said Mr Ruto at Revival Church in Dagoretti.

While referring to talks of an unpaid political debt between him and President Kenyatta, the DP said that he only knows of two debts; the national debt and the one the Jubilee administration owes Kenyans on account of the party’s campaign pledges.

He criticised National Assembly Minority Leader John Mbadi for his Bill seeking to limit harambee donations at Sh100,000 saying that “you cannot compete with God”.

In Murang’a, more than 20 members of the so-called Kieleweke team said that Dr Ruto had shown little support for the Big Four agenda, the Building Bridges initiative and other government projects. Nominated MP Maina Kamanda said the DP had defied the President calls to stop early campaigns.

Tiaty MP William Kamket said MPs are ready to push for the quest to amend the Constitution and give the President powers to fire his deputy in case of insubordination.

Kangema MP Muturi Kigano said: “Antagonising the President who is the symbol of national unity amounts to gross misconduct.”

Mr Kamanda said there were many leaders who had been brought up by poor families and did not keep reminding the electorate for sympathy votes. He added that most Kenyans knew the source of Dr Ruto’s wealth.

“His rhetoric that he is a son of a peasant is neither here nor there. He claims that he had no shoes while he was in school but I want to tell him that some of us could not afford even shirts but we don’t seek sympathy out of it,” Mr Kamanda said and thanked the President for recent appointment of Kieleweke team members to public jobs.

He said the Kieleweke team came together after realising that those elected to defend the President had been bought.

In Nyandarua, DP Ruto’s allies dismissed the elders who met in Nyeri on Saturday to denounce him. The politicians called the elders “prophets of doom” and said that the event was sponsored by politicians and business people in Nairobi opposed to the DP.

Mr Ruto said that, as a government, the goal is unite everyone “so that we can move forward as a country”. He warned those using old guards to push their political agenda, saying Kenyans have no time for petty politics.

“We must stick together as Jubilee family and be guided by our manifesto. We should be ware of false prophets who are after derailing our development agenda,” he said and asked Kenyans to ignore “the political noises around.”

American bride ‘undergoes FGM’ in Pokot traditional wedding – VIDEO

Published

on

An American missionary living in Baringo County braved female genital mutilation in order to fulfill the marriage customs of the Pokot in her traditional wedding.

The American couple has lived among the Pokots for the last 10 years doing missionary work.

Trizah and Tony said they fell in love with the Pokot culture and decided to wed in adherence to the traditions.

Among the Pokots, the bride must undergo female genital mutilation as a rite of passage to adulthood, a condition the American couple readily agreed to.

The marriage ceremony took place in Paka Hills.

Trizah was given a Pokot name Cheigar.

“I am proud to be here and be a part of this. It’s a blessing for me to be able to do this and be accepted by these people” Tony told K24 TV in an interview.

Female genital mutilation was banned in Kenya eight years ago after the enactment of Female Genital Mutilation Act 2011.

Communities still practice the vice albeit in secrecy.

VIDEO: “Drunk” Kenyan in US faces up to 99 years in Prison ‘after killing man in wrong way vehicular homicide’

Published

on

A Kenya man faces up to 99 years in prison after he was charged with felony murder and intoxication assault on a peace officer.

Two Harris County Sheriff’s deputies were injured and the man they were taking to jail was killed when they were hit head-on by a wrong-way driver in west Harris County.

Investigators believe that wrong-way driver, who has been identified as 39-year-old Patrick Njogu, was drunk.

Authorities say Deputy C. Drake and Deputy P. Zelaya were going eastbound on the Westpark Tollway at Synott around 11:30 p.m. Sunday when Njogu slammed his Lexus into their patrol vehicle.

The deputies had left the scene of a major crash before that and were taking the 42-year-old prisoner in the backseat of the patrol unit to jail for allegedly being impaired.

Investigators spoke to the deputies who said they had little time to react. They believe Njogu was headed the wrong way on the road for more than a mile.

Sean Teare with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office says he has seen video of the collision.

“You can see the moment the two deputies go over the hill on the on-ramp as this defendant is basically exiting Westpark the wrong way,” Teare said.

Other drivers apparently called 911 in the moments before the crash, trying to warn authorities of the coming danger. The Harris County Toll Road Authority then located Njogu’s vehicle on camera but could not prevent the head-on collision.

Deputy Drake was driving, but he was unable to take evasive action.

“He had nowhere to go. It is an on-ramp, a one lane on-ramp. He was only able to see him for a split second before the head-on,” Teare explained.

Officials say everyone was wearing a seat belt, and they were all taken to Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital. The prisoner died.

Deputy Drake had a broken foot, numerous bruises and cuts, and Deputy Zelaya suffered a concussion. Njogu was taken to the hospital with a broken leg.

Authorities say Njogu has five previous DWI arrests and three previous convictions in Illinois and Missouri.

Teare described Njogu as being highly intoxicated.

“He told the deputies or asked the deputies whether or not he was in the state of Missouri immediately after the crash,” Teare said.

Njogu had a Texas driver’s license.

According to the district attorney, as long as he had been adjudicated for the other convictions, there would be nothing that would prevent him from getting a Texas license.
