The pedestrian’s body was taken to Coast General Hospital Mortuary in Mombasa.

On August 17, 2019, the popular actor was called out by a section of social media users for “disrespecting” one of his co-hosts at Radio CitizenMelody Sinzore.

The veteran actor hand grabbed Sinzore by the neck as he goaded her to admit that she was his wife.

Netizens, who are usually the judges and the jury of the internet, had their say on whatever was transpiring in the video and very few were empathetic to the veteran actor.

“Mwala is no longer funny he has aged and has no respect too, I think his academic level is too low, he requires advice, also too much of pride,”  Nicholas Gichuki noted.

Ms. Kristalina Georgieva, the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), announced on Wednesday her intention to name Mr. Ceda Ogada as the Secretary of the Fund and Director of the Secretary’s Department.

Mr. Ogada succeeds Mr. Jianhai Lin, whose retirement was announced previously. Mr. Ogada is expected to begin his work on September 1, 2020.

“Ceda has outstanding institutional knowledge, strategic and intellectual heft, and people leadership. His unparalleled ability to bring people together, combined with his profound appreciation of the Fund’s institutional history and legal principles, as well as strong service orientation, will help the Fund to even more effectively serve our member countries in a very challenging economic environment,” Ms. Georgieva stated.

Mr. Ogada joined the IMF’s Legal Department in 1999 and rose through the ranks to become Deputy General Counsel in 2014.

During the time, he has worked on virtually all aspects of the Fund’s work, including advising on the governance of the Fund, on country operations, helping to develop Fund policies and implementation guidance, and providing technical assistance to member countries.

Key projects that he has worked on include the Fund’s enhanced policy to address governance and corruption issues; ensuring the adequacy of the Fund’s lending resources; reforms in lending policy such as the establishment of the Flexible Credit Line (FCL) and the Catastrophe Containment and Relief Trust (CCRT); reviews on surveillance policy and capacity development strategy; and transparency, archives, and communications policies.
