Published

West Pokot Governor, Prof John Lonyangapuo, on Monday left President Uhuru Kenyatta and other guests in stitches when he said his county deserved to get a handsome share of the revenue from the oil export by the Kenyan Government.

Speaking during the the flagging-off of the inaugural shipment of Kenyan crude oil from the port of Mombasa, Governor Lonyangapuo told the president that his people had ensured a top notch security for the oil consignment.

“By the way vile ndungu yangu kutoka Turkana ameongea hapa hakusema kwamba wale wametupea security ya kutosha kwa hiyo trucks ni watu ya West Pokot. Kwa hivyo sisi tunaongoja mbavu, wewe kata mguu, wengine waende na kichwa na ngozi lakini sisi mbavu,” Lonyangapuo said amid laughter.

Kenya has now entered the league of oil exporting nations with 200,000 barrels expected to be exported.

The crude oil was harvested from Turkana oil fields by Tullow Oil.

A report from the government intimated that a Chinese company known as Chemchina bought the first batch of the Kenyan crude oil at Sh 1.2 billion.

Kenyan Comedian Njugush reveals that his ex dumped him because he did not have any money.

Talking to Dr King’ori on his wicked edition show, the couple recounted how they met.

Celestine says they connected well since they had just come from bad relationships.

Njugush said,

“I’m sure they are watching us today because they said bad things about me,” adding that he is grateful they broke up.

The comedian further explains how the break up was;

 “There are people in this life that speak things that they don’t know what they mean. When someone tells you that you are not headed anywhere in future. We broke up because of money, I had nothing at the moment, he said.

 

“I mean, those were tender ages and I blame her because you can’t judge a chick for not having wings yet it’s not yet a chicken.”

He says that hurt him because he took sometime before he could heal.

But now he is one of the richest comedians in town.
