Raila Junior, Boniface Mwangi renew rivalry over Kibra candidate

Published

on

A war of words has erupted between human rights activist Boniface Mwangi and Raila Junior over who is the right candidate in the Kibra Constituency by-election.

It all started after the young Raila ridiculed Mwangi’s candidate, Editar Ochieng, who will be running on Ukweli Party’s ticket, which is associated with the activist.

But Raila Junior gave her slim chance at victory.

“I honestly feel there will be more spoilt votes than votes for her @bonifacemwangi if @SportPesa were still on I’d make that bet. Why would someone waste their time and money like this?,” he shared.

Mwangi in his response did not mince his words, retorting that Junior’s father, Raila Odinga, had run for presidency for years without success.

SWORN AS PRESIDENT

“Your father @RailaOdinga has been running for President since 1997. 22 year later he is still running but has never been sworn as president. @Railajunior let @oeditar run for MP Kibra in peace. Bet on your dad becoming president in 2022 and let Editar Ochieng be.”

Later, Mwangi reminded Junior how in 2018 went to a restaurant and lamented on Twitter how Talisman restaurant discriminated his child, claiming the establishment has a ‘racist’ playground where toys are only available to white children.

The by-election will be held on November 7.

Victoria Kimani: I’ve been single for three years, dating life is horrible

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Celebrated singer Victoria Kimani has revealed that she is single and thinks dating life is horrible.

The Kenyan-born singer says she has been single for the longest and hasn’t even been asked out by a man for a while now.

“The last time I went out on a date was September last year,” she revealed.

The 34-year-old noted that she doesn’t think she is ready to date again at least not at the moment.

“Dating life is horrible. I don’t know why I’m talking crap as if I’m dating. I’m not dating anybody,” she added.

The last time she was in a relationship was three years ago.

The sexy singer dated hunk Nigerian Stanley Obiamalu, a video producer and director who at the time was understood to be residing in South Africa.

They broke up in June 2017 and ever since Victoria has on several occasions been quoted saying she is still single.

Despite still being single, April last year in an interview with K24, Kimani opened up on her desire to get married and have children in the future.

Victoria, however, noted she was willing to wait for as long as it takes until the right man comes along because she is “tired of falling in love with bad boys”.

Tears as Naivasha children buried

Published

on

Four children reportedly killed by their mother in Naivasha last Friday have been buried in an emotional send-off in Kinangop, Nyandarua County.

Those who attended the two-hour ceremony on Thursday could not hold back their tears as the caskets bearing the remains were removed from a hearse.

As the mahogany caskets were being lined up, forlorn looking locals followed the proceedings in obvious emotional turmoil.

The magnitude of the heinous killing was put into the open as villagers from the sleepy Murungaru village broke the Covid-19 protocols to attend the funeral ceremony in their numbers.

Administrators present were forced to work overtime to ensure social distancing, with the numbers continually swelling.

SPEAK OUT

During the funeral service, church leaders called on people undergoing stressful moments to speak out.

“They should reach out to their friends and relatives and pour their hearts out. The pandemic has affected the social setup but people should open up,” said Kenya Assemblies of God cleric Francis Kamau Mwaura.

The church leader admitted that the disease has taken toll on the population, voicing the need for people to bear the happenings with fortitude.

“Families are going through tough times but those affected should not suffer in silence,” added Mr Mwaura.

SOCIAL MEDIA

The family was also incensed by social media users, with their spokesman, Macharia Kimotho, tearing at them for disrespecting them.

“Some of the online users even posted the picture of the dead children. It was unethical, uncalled for and openly disgusting,” he said

“It was the least we expected. It the high time that content on the social media is regulated,” added Mr Kimotho.

He defended the family, saying their sister who is linked to the killings, was at no point neglected.

“Some of the people are saying that she did not have food. The foodstuff in her house was enough to last her for months,” pointed out Mr Kimotho.

He accused the social media users of causing the family “irreparable damage,” by some of their postings, but was quick to add that they had forgiven their tormentors.

As the four bodies were being lowered to their final resting place, tears flowed freely, screams rent their air with a number of mourners fainting.

The children were finally laid to rest at around 1.15pm.
