Here’s why Kabogo is now the real deal for Kiambu people

Published

on

Just like a groom who finally realises his mistake after walking out of a relationship, Kiambu residents are now on a wooing mission to win over their former governor, William Kabogo.

This change of heart seems to have been sparked by photos which Kabogo shared online showing him holidaying in Mombasa.

The photos, which capture Kabogo relaxing at the beach with the ocean in the background, is what gave residents of Kiambu the perfect opportunity to execute their courtship.

“Bahari imetulia, iko shuari. Kikiumana au mawimbi ikipiga Nguvu zake Yesu ndio Nanga,” Kabogo captioned the photos.

LAMENTATIONS

And in response, Kiambu residents came out in droves to his Facebook page to reply to the post.

Most of them lamented how much they missed Kabogo’s leadership, especially now that his successor, Governor Ferdinand Waititu, is facing corruption charges.

“You should be ready to take Kiambu gvt, Dr. Corruption and his foot soldiers have looted this country wakitafuta pesa za 2022 campaign,” wrote Carol Karendi Alhajj.

“We miss you more than SportPesa,” Anko Petmor said.

FONDLY MISSED

“Enjoy yourself mheshimiwa. We miss your good leadership in Kiambu especially the hospitals were in good state,” commented George Boro.

“We miss you so much mheshimiwa, come back quickly to our rescue, your house his burning while you are enjoying life,” Nyaamagwa George Vonlet wrote.

“We want u back father Ulituachia fisi wanakunywa hadi maziwa ya watoto,” said Jeff Mapesa Wamaitha.

“I told Kiambu people to vote for Kabogo and they defied. I told them, they got the best governor who deserved another term to make Kiambu great, and they defied. I wish Kabogo was my governor,” remarked Ondabu David.

Mr Kabogo was first to be elected Governor of Kiambu county in 2013 but he lost the seat to Waititu in 2017 in a hotly-contested election.

Why Amos Wako was banned from setting foot on US Soil

Published

on

The US has banned Busia Senator Amos Wako, his wife Flora Ngaira and son Julius from entering the country and doing business with it over corruption allegations while he was attorney-general.

In a statement, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo also banned Mr Wako’s wife Flora Ngaira, and son, Julius Wako.

This means that Mr Wako, wife and son will not be allowed to visit America or transact any business in that country with companies affiliated to Americans.

“Today (Monday), the Department designates former Kenyan Attorney General Amos Sitswila Wako due to his involvement in significant corruption,” said the statement that was released on Monday evening.

Mr Pompeo said the designation was made under Section 7031(c) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and related programs appropriations Act, 2019 (Div. F, P.L. 116-6), as carried forward by the continuing appropriations Act, 2020 (Div. A, P.L. 116-59).

Section 7031(c) provides that, in cases where the Secretary of State has credible information that officials of foreign governments have been involved in significant corruption, those individuals and their immediate family members are ineligible for entry into the United States.

The law also requires the Secretary of State to publicly or privately designate such officials and their immediate family members.

“Today’s action sends a strong signal that the United States is a valuable partner in Kenya’s fight against corruption.  Economic prosperity for all Kenyans is only possible by defeating the scourge of corruption, which also requires a functional, fair, and transparent criminal justice system,” said Mr Pompeo

He added that the United States will continue to stand with all Kenyans as they strive to curb and punish corruption in Kenya.

Mr Wako may still be allowed onto US soil if he visits as a member of the Kenyan delegation to the UN meetings or if the UN invites him, even though his movement could be restricted.

Cheptoo sat her examination at Sangalo Central Primary in Nandi County, a public school.

Speaking to Standard Digital on phone, Komen described her daughter as an avid reader with a cool head, adding that her performance did not surprise the family having scored 446 marks in the final mock examinations.

Komen, a household name among sports journalists in the country courtesy of his nice sports stories has made the headlines, not because of an eye-catching story, but because his daughter is among the best in the country this year.
