This census ‘boys club’ has got Kenyans talking

Published

on

A press briefing held on Thursday by Cabinet secretaries Fred Matiang’i (Interior), Joe Mucheru (Information and Communications) and Ukur Yatani (acting Treasury and Planning CS) outside Harambee House has caused a social media chatter.

Pictures circulating online show the three CSs flanked by other government officials looking sharp in crisp tailored suits.

Apart from their good grooming and public speaking skills, the group was only missing one thing: A representation of the fairer sex.

Social media users took note of how it was an all-boy’s affair as the officials briefed the nation on 2019 National Census that will be held on Saturday.

During the press briefing, Dr Matiang’i urged Kenyans to comply with the enumerators who will be knocking on their doors from August 24.

But Kenyans wondered why no single woman was among the top government officials at the press conference.

Here are their comments: “No country for women,” tweeted SABC correspondent Sarah Kimani.

“No wonder even the parliament can’t pass the gender law,” wrote @vincetmasila83.

“That’s why we’re failing AF. Simple diversity and inclusivity is a problem,” stated @NjengereR.

“Am just wondering if the same picture had only women what the reaction would be. Would a negative comment be deemed sexist?” asked @kamaujst.

“This govt can easily be dissolved if we had a serious judiciary coz it doesn’t adhere to the third constitutional requirement,” commented @DeograciousEkw2.

“I am totally on your side. Apparently UG and RW have done much better on this front,” said @bapfrancis.

“It’s an only big boy’s affair. if given the chance no woman would be in govt it only shows us how were far from gender equity!” noted @labanmathenge.

Sorry for your mental illness, but Sh50m property is gone

Published

on

A woman adjudged by the High Court as suffering from mental illness will lose a Sh50 million property located near State House and which she maintains she sold while in a poor mental state.

Monica Wambui lost her bid to save her Dennis Pritt Road property after Justice Grace Nzioka ruled that she did not prove that she was mentally indisposed during the actual period of the sale.

She nevertheless acknowledged Wambui’s mental issues but said on the basis of the evidence adduced, they could not be related to the purchase.

The sale had been concluded on January 13, 2009 but Wambui subsequently attempted to cancel it and rejected the money, citing fraud and mental incapacity. Justice Nzioka now wants Wambui to hand over the prime property to the purchaser, Lucy Wairimu Mwangi.

“I have considered the evidence analysed herein and I find that there are no factors established to vitiate the sale agreement entered between Mwangi and Wambui. The contract of sale of the suit property was basically concluded on the date the sale agreement was signed and consideration received in full,” Justice Nzioka declared in the judgement dated May 18.

Mwangi moved to court on March 17, 2009 and listed Wambui as the first defendant and her (Wambui’s) mother Pauline Mukuhi Nganga as the second defendant.

She claimed she had paid the full Sh13.7 million purchase price to Wambui’s lawyer Chege Wainaina.

Depression

In the ensuing court proceedings, Wambui claimed at the time she signed the agreement, she was suffering from depression and could not have been legally competent to enter into a contract.

She also did not receive the sale amount having written to her lawyer to cancel the deal. She claimed she was holding the four-bedroom villa situated along Dennis Pritt Road in trust for her then 11-year-old daughter, having been bought for her by her former husband Garry Vincent Corbit.

The property is known as Maisonette No.6 Casablanca Villas on L.R No. 209/5827.

“Wambui’s case is that she did not freely consent to or execute the sale agreement, as at a time of executing the agreement, she did not understand or comprehend what was going on due to the fact that she was mentally impaired,” the judgement read.

It turned out from the proceedings that the Wairimu had indeed paid part of Wambui’s hospital bill at the instigation of the lawyer but did not know what she was ailing from.

In rejecting her arguments, Justice Nzioka said the evidence adduced showed that Wambui had tried to sell the property to three other people prior, but the deals fell apart over a alleged defects in the house and because the property was mentioned in the Ndung’u Land Report.

All the attempts took place in 2007. As to her mental status, the Judge said no evidence was produced to show that she was hospitalised throughout the period of 2007 to 2009, the period the attempted and the actual sale took place.

The documents produced in court did not give evidence on her mental state for that period of interest to the court.

Rehabilitation Centre

A medical report produced by Dr Pius Kigamwa dated March 2009 showed that Wambui had been her patient since June 2008.

Another report showed that since 2008, she had been at Nairobi Place Rehabilitation Centre. “She was oriented in time, place and person. Her mood was depressed. She did not have hallucination or delusional experiences,” another report by a Dr Okonji, a consultant psychiatrist told the court.

In this particular report, the doctor concluded that; “She is in remission from her psychiatric illness, and was fit to instruct counsel and follow court proceedings.”

Another psychiatrist, Dr FR Owiti said she had been treated at another city clinic for two months.

In analysing these, Justice Nzioka said none addressed the period of the sale. The closest they came was a January 26 to January 30, 2009 period she was admitted to Nairobi Hospital.

This particular admission happened a few weeks after the sale had been concluded.

“I find that she suffers a mental condition known as delirium which is capable of impairing her decision-making,” the judge affirmed.

Still, she said, on the basis of Dr Okonji’s opinion, that she had periods of remission from her condition, and her inability to produce any evidence regarding her hospitalization, she has to lose the property.

At best, Justice Nzioka could only wish her well.

“This matter presented a very sad case before the court, and material conditions of Wambui was considered and seriously regretted. The court, however, evaluated the matter painfully on the legal principles of law as expected.

Wambui is wished a quick recovery from her condition.” Wambui is dissatisfied with the ruling.

She has instructed her lawyer Danstan Omari to appeal.

Corazon Kwamboka clarifies on ‘stealing’ Frankie Just Gym It from Maureen Waititu

Published

on

BY KEVIN KOECH

Fitness trainer Frankie Just Gym It and Socialite Corazon Kwamboka have addressed claims that Frankie separated with Maureen Waititu because of Corazon.

According to Frankie, he and Maureen separated because of other reasons.

“Maureen and I had our differences, and it is not something we tried to fix once but throughout our relationship.

“We were not necessarily happy at that time. So we figured it was best for us to go our separate ways,” said Frankie.

He says he met Corazon after he had already broken up with the mother of his two children.

“We met last year in July, and we were both going through tough times in our lives. We were both out of relationships, it was a sensitive time,” said Frankie.

“We just started talking, it was not as if we had planned to get into a relationship. She was entering the fitness world and I was in the fitness world. So I guess we had so much in common that things just catapulted into something else.”

They further clarified that when they decided to get serious with their relationship, they were both single.

“People saying I ruined his family. That is not true,” stated Corazon.

“I know a lot of people think that but it is totally false, I mean we met way after I broke up with Maureen, so that had nothing to do with it. It’s just that we found something that we never actually planned to fall into it,” added Frankie.

“The general public did not see that we had troubles, because they used to see us on our YouTube channel and there you see a perfect couple, but they did not know what was happening behind closed doors.”

Frankie says the reason they opted to keep their relationship a secret is because they did not want to get any backlash.

However, they are now happy together.

Maureen and Frankie called it quits in 2019 without disclosing the reason behind their breakup.

A few months late, pictures of Frankie and Corazon hanging out together emerged on social media, fuelling rumours that the two were an item.

Corazon and Frankie are expecting their first child together.
