Overlapping Woman Rep apologises after being publicly shamed by angry citizen

Published

on

Kirinyaga Woman Representative Wangui Ngirici has been forced to apologise to the public after she was caught on camera in an altercation with a road user who confronted her for attempting to overlap and bullying over motorists.

The incident shows Ms Ngirici standing next to her car which is on the wrong side of the road.

According to an eyewitness, who identifies himself as Oluoch Dickens, the incident took place at Kilimani area.

During the incident, the Woman Rep’s vehicle is said to have almost hit another one coming from the other direction.

“A woman out from the back seat and accompanied by a woman and man who looked like her body guards came out and she started insulting the mac driver demanding that she comes out of the car. She was very abusive. I was in a lot of pain having undergone an operation and had just been discharged two days earlier from Aga Khan Hospital but I couldn’t just take it,” said Mr Oluoch.

“I asked my umber guy to stop. Struggled to come out of the car and confronted her and her team… I didn’t know who the hell she was but could put that face to a noisy politician. Couldn’t just tell who. She and her team tried to confront me but I stood my ground though in a lot of pain and didn’t allow them to know. She had to retreat and ate a lot of humble pie,” he added.

Ms Ngirici admitted her mistake and apologised for her misconduct.

“Going by the clip making rounds on social media – Yes, sometime back I had an incident involving overlapping on the road. Sometimes, even leaders are reminded by the citizens about the society and its values,” Ngirirci said.

“I took the lesson, appreciated and apologized accordingly. To grow together as one cohesive and harmonious society, we must remind and correct each other whenever we go wrong or make mistakes ~ PWN,” she added.

However, soon as the exit came to a close, sources reveal that NTV’s senior Kiswahili news anchor, Salim Swaleh has been promoted as managing editor of the station’s Swahili desk.

Jalang’o says running Churchill Show is too costly- defends Churchill

Published

on

During a Candid interview with fellow comedian Zainabu Zeddy, Jalang’o and Zeddy laid bare their opinions about the Churchill show.
“Let me tell you something Churchill will never reveal, and comedians cannot understand. People see a packed audience and think he has made a lot of money. The tent in which the event is held doesn’t cost less that Ksh3 million,” Jalang’o explained.
Jalang’o who is a close friend of the show host advised comedians to use the platform as a gateway to better things because they could not depend on the show’s allowances to change their lives.
“Performing at private functions and clubs can earn you Ksh 50,000 but you can’t earn that money on Churchill Show because it’s not there,” Jalang’o stated before breaking down the event’s costs.
He then further went on to disclose that running the whole show cost around Ksh5 million.
Jalang’o added that for Churchill to meet the operation cost, it would require at least 5,000 people to pay Ksh 1,000 each for tickets.
“Do you know that sometimes half of the crowd would attend the show for free?” Jalang’o posed to Zeddy.
The radio presenter added that on some nights, Churchill would be lucky to make even Ksh 200,000. He explained that a lot of money would be used to hire chairs, accommodation, lights and stage equipment as well as the technical crew.
He challenged that if the host were making as much money as people thought then he wouldn’t need to work as a presenter at Classic 105 FM.
This revelation comes amid claims that comedians have been getting a raw deal when working on Churchill Show.

BY KEVIN KOECH

Education CS George Magoha has directed both primary and secondary schools to refund second and third term fees to parents who had already paid.

Addressing members of the press on Wednesday, the CS, however, noted that the parents and the institutions are free to enter into an agreement to carry forward the monies to cater for school fees when learners resume classes next year.

The CS spoke a day after he declared the 2020 academic year “lost” due to the coronavirus pandemic threat.

In a press briefing on Tuesday Magoha announced that primary and secondary schools will reopen in January 2021.

The CS said there will be no Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) and Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations this year as they have all been pushed to 2021.

“In consultation with the Ministry of Health, we have agreed schools to reopen when daily Covid-19 cases reduce consistently for 14 days. Social and physical distancing is the most critical factor in ensuring the safety of learners,” said Magoha.
