DP goes missing

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Deputy President William Ruto has been missing on social media lately. The silence is too loud, given the pressure being piled on Jubilee.

His last activity on social media was on Sunday, January 12 where he had attended an interdenominational church service at St Paul’s Makongi Secondary School in Soy Constituency, Uasin Gishu County, with other leaders.

“The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers from them all. – Psalm 34:19 During an interdenominational church service at St Paul’s Makongi Secondary School in Soy Constituency, Uasin Gishu County,” his posts on Twitter and Facebook reads.

The DP also attended a church service in Narok County on the same and posted about it.

“But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. – Mathew 6:33, During the official opening of African Gospel Church (A.G.C) Olerai Bethel Sanctuary, Narok West in Narok County,” the other post read.

Still, on 12th January, he congratulated athletes Rhonex Kipruto and Sheila Chepkirui for breaking the men’s and women’s 10 Km world record in Valencia.

The silence is profound when President Kenyatta moved to reclaim his say in the government.

Mr. Kenyatta on Tuesday sacked Mwangi Kiunjuri, Dr. Ruto’s point man in the Mt Kenya region, from the cabinet.

DJ Evolve: Meet man ‘accidentally shot’ by Babu Owino

Published

on

On Friday, Kenyans woke up to news of a shooting incident involving Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.

The legislator was arrested and detained at Kilimani Police station after DJ Evolve was shot in the neck at B Club along Galana Road in Kilimani, Nairobi. The DJ sustained serious injury and was rushed to the hospital, with doctors saying that he is in stable condition.

Initial reports indicate the spent cartridge and weapon from the shooting incident are yet to be retrieved by the police.

An investigation by SDE unearthed the last known video of the DJ performing at the high-end entertainment spot yesterday night.

Dressed in a black bomber jacket, DJ Evolve, who also refers to himself as ‘The Lowkey Assassin’, is seen on the decks dancing to the music in the background, unaware of what would later befall him.

Calm mannerism

A source who spoke to SDE described DJ Evolve as a ‘jovial young man’ who never got involved in confrontations.

“He is not dramatic. He’s usually very cheerful most of the time. Whenever he walked into the club, he would move around saying hi said to all customers,” said the source, adding that the DJ once worked at the nearby Kiza Lounge.

Shooting was ‘accidental’

Cliff Ombeta

Lawyer Cliff Ombeta is representing the MP.

Speaking to the press, Babu’s lawyer Cliff Ombeta said that the shooting incident was accidental and that there was no intention to commit an offence.

“In as much as people out there are talking that it is murder and all that, it’s not true at the moment.

“You can remember that on 17 November 2019 he reported an incident whereby he had been tracked by some people. He said that his life was in danger and reported the matter at Parliament police station.

“Since then he s been very anxious. He’s been increasing his security, changing his route when moving from one place to another.

“This morning, a person who he eventually realised was his friend somehow approached him in a way that was unexpected and Babu reacted. I can only say reacted, let me not say anything beyond that. Eventually, somebody was shot,” said Ombeta.

The lawyer added that Babu had requested for the matter to be thoroughly investigated while calling on his constituents not to protest his arrest.

According to Ombeta, the gun involved in the shooting is in the hands of the police and that Babu is a licensed firearm holder.

Watch how newspaper’s goof turned one man’s joy into nightmare

Published

on

It would be funny if it weren’t so tragic.

On Wednesday January 15, Enosh Momanyi when to bed a happy man. Hours earlier, he had addressed the nation after “learning that he had been appointed as a Principal Secretary by President Uhuru Kenyatta”.

That joy, however, fast turned into a nightmare after it emerged that his picture and name were erroneously used by Standard Newspaper. It was his namesake who had been handed the plum position.

So how did it all start? On Tuesday, President Kenyatta reshuffled his cabinet bringing in a few new faces.

Among the new faces was Enosh Momanyi Onyango who was nominated as PS Physical Planning. The Standard Newspaper shared the pictures on the nominees on the Wednesday paper.

HITCH

But there was a hitch. The newspaper published the picture of the wrong Enosh. In a video that has since gone viral, the 29-year-old clearly overwhelmed by emotions following the “news of his appointment” of which he says was informed by friends and family members after seeing his picture of the local daily, prepared an acceptance speech thanking the president for the appointment.

He thanked Mr Kenyatta for ensuring that the youth were well represented in his government and looked forward to serving the people of Kenya.

“Good evening fellow Kenyans, my name is Enosh Momanyi, I am 29 years old from Webuye West Constituency, Bungoma County. Today has been a good day waking up in the morning to calls and texts from people I know and those I don’t know congratulating me for my appointment by the president to the position of the PS for Physical Planning,” he said.

“Actually I learned this through The Standard newspaper dated January 15, 2020, over the aforementioned appointment I wish to thank his excellency for believing in youth. My desire is to align my responsibilities with Uhuru’s Big 4 Agenda,” he added.

“As I conclude, I also wish to thank all Kenyans and I look forward to being a servant to all of you. Thank you,’ read his speech.

The Standard has since published an apology and shared the image of the correct Momanyi who was appointed by the president.
