Published

Safaricom interim Chief Executive Officer, Michael Joseph, broke down severally while reading a tribute to Bob Collymore during the latter’s memorial service on Thursday at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi.

Joseph, while struggling to read Collymore’s tribute poem, also revealed that they had agreed whoever survived the other, would read the poem ‘My Funeral’ at each other’s funeral.

GRIEF-STRICKEN

“Am genuinely sad and heartbroken to be the one reading this poem today,” he said.

He went on to read the poem but broke down a couple of times in between the poem.

It was too much for the grief-stricken Joseph who at one point paused briefly before continuing with the poem.

BRAVEST MAN

“Bob was the bravest man I have ever met, with enormous sense of humour, he never wanted anyone to worry about him,” Joseph said while eulogizing Collymore.

Joseph was among the speakers during Collymore’s memorial service attended by Collymore’s family, friends and a host of political leaders in the country.

Among the VIP guests in attendance at the ongoing service is President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.

Patricia Kihoro vows not to work with Nick Mutuma following sexual assault allegations

BY KEVIN KOECH

Musician Patricia Kihoro has said that she will no longer work with Nick Mutuma after sexual assault claims against him resurfaced.

Taking to Twitter, Patricia said she supports calls to boycott the actor and music producer Jaaz Odongo, who was also accused of sexual assault.

“I had started to say something with this tweet but it was difficult to complete for reasons that I’ve been struggling to face, but for now I would like to clearly state that I stand behind the calls to #BoycottNickMutuma and to #BoycottJaazOdongo.

“I will not work with him (Nick), or any other abuser, and will not amplify projects that he or any other abuser is involved in, whether or not I am a part of it. We shot Disconnect before the accusations became public, but what we do now matters,” tweeted Patricia.

According to the singer-cum- actress, she got the conviction to take the stand after having a conversation with Nick, who was initially accused of sexual assault in 2017.

The allegations against him resurfaced after his movie,Sincerely Daisy premiered on Netflix and one Wanjiku Clara tweeted to the streaming service,

“So @netflix do y’all know an actor from Sincerely Daisy has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault?”

Patricia said that she knew both Nick and his accuser but had distanced herself from the situation, a move she termed ‘cowardly’.

She further apologised to sexual assault victims for her silence on the matter as it indicated complicity.

“I spoke to Nick on Friday last week at length. I should have done so much earlier but because I know both Koome and Nick, to varying degrees personally, I chose to slowly distance myself from the situation.

“This was cowardly and wrong on my part….I gave no consideration to the people actually harmed. I was wrong and I am so sorry to the survivors. I believe you and I’m sorry. And to everyone else in this community, I failed to do my part,” she wrote.

On September 19, Nick was prompted to respond to the allegations in a statement that read in part,

“They have been trying to discredit all my hard work and they have done their best to see that my dreams never come true. I would like to categorically state that I am against any form of abuse against women and I always have been.”

Kabi Wa Jesus returns car gift because it is too low for Kenyan roads 

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Kenyan YouTuber Kabi Wa Jesus has returned his newly acquired Audi A5 car gifted to him by his wife Milly WaJesus on his birthday.

Speaking on their YouTube channel, the social media sensation explained that as much as the car was everything he dreamed of, it became hectic navigating the Kenyan roads because it was too low.

“First of all I want to say a big thank you for the overwhelming support you guys showed us when my love surprised me with this German machine over here and you know I’m super grateful but aki please guys don’t come for me, I’m just saying but this is not to refuse the gift.

“This is it, I wanted this car because it is low, classy-looking and clean and that’s why my love got it. However, my love wanted a Q5 which is like a million bob more. It’s a bigger car, still an Audi but it’s a million bob more and it’s higher.

“So she went ahead and got it for me but after driving it for like four days I felt it’s low to be honest. It doesn’t feel as easy to drive especially on our road. Where we stay is very interior. Now this is what I’m thinking, I’m thinking we add that million bob and upgrade to a bigger car, the Audi Q5,” he said.

According to Milly WaJesus, her decision to ‘purchase’ the Audi Q5 was because of the roads but since her husband wanted a low car she sacrificed her preference and got him what he wanted.

“So my problem has been this for a long time, Kabi wanted a Mercedes-Benz E-Class then we settled on an Audi, but he wanted a car that was low.

“I kept telling him it’s not about where we live because we can always move if we wanted to but it’s about the roads we have in our country and it is unfortunate that you can’t peacefully have the car you want to have especially if you move a lot,” said Milly.

‘I told him if you want to commit suicide with drinking, take a rope…’ Othuol Othuol’s father speaks

Published

on

The father of late comedian Othuol Othuol has moved Kenyans after speaking for the first time following his death.

Othuol’s story was featured on Churchill Show journey series, where his family, close friends and colleagues paid glowing tributes to him.

‘The last time he came home it was January this year. He called me and told me he wanted to come and built his house because everyone was asking him about it,’ his father said.

Adding,

‘He came home and put up a house which is bigger than mine and promised to build me one once he was done’.

Othuol Othuol was known for his love for alcohol and his father and close friend actress Sandra Dacha confirmed this.

‘We had a lot of problems with his drinking style. An I’d urge young people to tread carefully. People have drunk until they are even 100 or 90 years and are still strong because were cautious but not careless. If you do is carelessly then you become careless with your life,’ he,’ explained.

The bereaved father continued,

‘His drinking was a concern to the family. Whenever he would come home, the whole home would be full…chang’aa (local brew) and other drinks. He arrives in the village in the morning but I’d see him in the night when he is going to sleep. Just from one chang’aa den to another and I could go round making noise nyinyi mnaharibu watoto wa watu but he was a grown-up so hakuna mtu anamuharibu.’

The sad father was fed up with his son’s drinking and tried to warn him but his warnings fell on deaf ears.

‘I called him one day and told him if you want to commit suicide with drinking please tell me and the style you want to take. If you want to commit suicide with drinking carelessly, don’t take time, better take a rope and do it. I’ll come to carry you home,” he recalled.

Adding,

‘I thought he could go slow… during the time he was diagnosed with TB, I sent a brother to go and take care of him but he said “no this is my hoúse. If you talk about my drinking and the money is mine, then hatutaelewana”.’

The comedian was raised by his father and stepmother.
