Did Ruto kick out journalists, yet again? – AUDIO

Published

on

An audio recording of someone who sounds like the Deputy President William Ruto chasing away journalists is making the rounds on social media.

In the audio, the person is heard telling asking the journalists to leave.

“Bado tuko na watu ya magazeti? Watu ya magazeti mnafanya nini hapa? Toeni hii maTV yenu hapa. Mnatufwata mpaka usiku? Tokeni hapa!” the speaker in the audio clip says.

It is not clear when, where nor if the person speaking is indeed the Deputy President.

The audio has emerged just days after the DP was caught on camera shooing off journalists who were covering the Ilchamus traditional wedding ceremony in Baringo County, an event he presided over.

In an incident that happened on August 10, 2019 in Baringo county, the DP interrupted his speech and asked the journalists to move back to give the crowd a clear view of the speakers at the wedding.

UNWANTED COVERAGE

Ruto went as far as making it clear to the journalists that he was not there to address them, but rather members of the public gathered at the venue.

“Na nyinyi watu wa nini, mumekuwa wengi hapa ketini chini watu wanataka kuangalia huko nyuma. Nyinyi tokeni hapa. Msonge nyuma. Wakae mbali mbali ndio wananchi waone. Kwani mnafikiri nimekuja kuongea na nyinyi ama nimekuja kuongea na wananchi,” Ruto said while addressing the journalists.

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Hellen Muthoni, a TV presenter and gospel artiste, father died in the 1998 bomb blast. 

Hellen was brought up in the village. She says life was good when her dad was around.

“My father was very rich and well known in our village that even teachers feared us. We used to go [to school] in home clothes, and no teacher would complain,” she said in an interview with Kikuyu Diaspora TV.

 

 

On the fateful day, the dad left home as usual in the morning, but that was his last time to do so since he did not come back in the evening.

They came to know later that he had died in the terrorist attack. 

Hellen’s family life immediately changed. Her dad’s family evicted them from their home on the same dad their dad passed on. 

“We had no option but to go to my grandmother’s home. She was not well off.”

Due to the drastic turn of events, her mum got depressed. “We were used to a good life, now here we were at my grandmother’s house, which was not even cemented, no power, everything seemed different and difficult,” she said.

This led to her mother falling sick, which left Muthoni with no choice but to look after her younger brother. 

Her grandmother was a devoted churchgoer and “that really helped me, and I thank God because my grandmother planted a godly thing in my life. She was a prophet, and she made us know God,” she said.

Muthoni faced many challenges from being made fun of at school to having to take care of her younger sibling from a tender age of seven.

Fortunately, she has triumphed all that. Her mum got better after receiving treatment, and she was able to go through school with the help of her sister’s husband.

She escaped torture in Saudi only to die suddenly in Qatar

Published

on

When Dorine Wangare, 36, bade her family goodbye before leaving for Qatar in November last year, she hoped her dream of getting her mother and siblings out of poverty had finally come true.

The mother of two was excited at the prospects of working in the Middle East country.It was not the first time Wangare was travelling to the Middle East in search of greener pastures.

She had spent at least four years in Saudi Arabia, where she said her employer tortured her. The harsh treatment forced her to return home.

Wangare was optimistic the job she had landed in Qatar would earn her enough money to help her provide for her son, 14, and eight-year-old daughter, who are in Form Two and Standard Three respectively.

“She was the family’s breadwinner and would come to our rescue whenever the landlord locked us out due to rent arrears,” said Mable Masitsa, Wangare’s mother.

Wangare died in Qatar on Tuesday night, just moments after she had a long phone chat with her mother and brother. This has left her family with many unanswered questions.

“Dorine called to inquire about school fees for her two children and other items required in school so that she could budget for them,” said Mrs Masitsa.

“I talked to my sister till late into the night. She told me it was very cold in Qatar, and she had been forced to put on two sweaters and a pair of trousers. I told her to stay indoors. It was the last communication I had with Dorine,” said Reinhard Mwangi.

Mr Mwangi said Wangare developed complications whenever the weather was too cold.

“Her friend said she opted to use a jiko (charcoal stove) in her room because it was cold before she was found dead on Wednesday morning,” said Mwangi.

Her mother said the news of her daughter’s death shocked them: “I still can’t believe my daughter left us in such a mysterious way.”

A sombre mood engulfed their home in Shitawa on the outskirts of Kakamega town, with family, friends and church members condoling with Masitsa.

Wangare’s Kenyan friends in Qatar have been updating the family on the happenings there.

However, Masitsa and Mwangi do not know how the body will be transported from Qatar to Kenya.

“We don’t have anywhere to run to for help. Dorine was supposed to send money for rent, food and school fees, but death took her away. It is sad that we might not be able to see her body any time soon,” she said.
