Fidel Odinga’s widow, Lwam Bekelle reveals heated communication with Ida

Published

on

Fidel Odinga’s widow, Lwam Bekelle, has put his mother-in-law on blast.

In court papers, Lwam claims that Ida has been spreading falsehoods about her.

In their affidavits, Ida and Winnie accuse Bekelle of taking off from her matrimonial home in Karen soon after Fidel was laid to rest and cutting all contact with the family.

They also say Bekelle kept off as the Odinga’s pushed to get to the bottom of what could have killed Fidel.

Bekelle accuses her mother-in-law of “unjustifiably and continuously making false, defamatory and/or unkind remarks about her family friends and herself.”

“I believe that the statement she recorded with the DCI following the death of Fidel Castro Odhiambo Odinga informs the 1st objector’s [Ida’s] averments and is the genesis of our differences,” Bekelle said.

However, in their affidavit, Ida and Winnie state that they are worried that Fidel’s son, Allay, may not be adequately provided for.

They claim Bekelle had removed him from school and kept him at home while also hiding him from the Odinga family.

“The objectors are further worried that having been the only child between the petitioner and the deceased, he is the only living memory of her son and will be disadvantaged if the petitioner continues to block them from his life,” Ida through Owiti, Otieno and Ragot advocates claims.

“In paragraph 13 and 14 of the objectors’ answer to the petition for a grant, they averred that my son Allay Raila Odinga was the deceased’s only descendant and he is the only living memory of the deceased. This averment is in itself contradictory to the objectors’ earlier assertion that the deceased sired other children in a different relationship,” she responded.

The widow also claims the Odinga family is not supporting her son and disputes claims he has dropped from school.

Panic over possible contacts of MP’s dead spouse

Published

on

Panic has gripped Mogotio town, Baringo County, after it emerged that the husband of Woman Rep Gladwel Cheruiyot (pictured), who allegedly succumbed to Covid-19 on Saturday, had spent considerable amounts of time in the area recently.

This came as ministry of Health officials started tracing his last movements, particularly in Mogotio township, where he operated a petrol station and at his rural home in Kapkiamo, Baringo North subcounty.

An official who spoke to the People Daily newspaper on condition of anonymity said a “pilot” sample had been taken from one of the workers last week.

“We are waiting for testing kits so that we can do more tests in the targeted areas,” he said. But speaking separately, Baringo County Commissioner Henry Wafula and Mogotio MP Daniel Tuitoek said there was no cause for alarm, noting that the businessman may have died of other causes and not necessarily coronavirus.

“I am the chairman of the County Coronavirus Response Committee. I am not aware of any case in my area. The businessman died in Eldoret; that is all I can tell you,”said Wafula.

Shift responsibility

On county preparedness, Wafula appeared to shift the responsibility to Governor Stanley Kiptis, saying: “He was given Sh220 million. Ask him what he has done with it.”

The commissioner has appealed to residents to stop speculating on what might have caused the death of Isaac Cherogony, 58, saying health is a personal issue.

“Who said he died of coronavirus? Health is for the family to talk about, not me.” Mogotio MP Tuitoek, on the other hand, has urged locals to strictly exercise self-discipline by obeying rules set to curb the disease spread and avert loss of lives.

The legislator called for calm, and called on the residents to continue wearing masks, washing hands with soap regularly and keeping social distance especially at public places.

Dr Tuitoek said he had been tested at the National Assembly and his samples turned out negative. He said he presented himself voluntarily for testing.

“There is nothing to fear. I received my results via SMS on Sunday evening,” he said. Baringo is one of the six counties that have not reported a case so far.

In the video, Kasee was being interviewed by a local media and gave a goodbye that nobody thought meant anything, until now.

While bidding the filming crew goodbye, the late told his fans if they failed to find him, then they should know he’s in heaven.

“If you don’t find me, just know that I am in heaven or in Kinoo,” Kasee said while facing the camera.

When asked by the interviewer not to adhere to the call, Kasee responded saying:

“C’mon if its Jesus, I’ll just perform a somersault (accept his call),” he said amidst laughter.

The late Kasee’s remarks left many wondering if the young man saw what was coming.

His autopsy was to be done and confirm the exact cause of death which, until now, is yet to be revealed.

Kasee was a loving father of two young kids who had actually turned a new leaf in his life after starting a wholesale business before he turned back to his drinking ways which ultimately contributed to his demise.

The comedian was laid to rest on Saturday, June 4, in Matuu – Machakos county, Itumunduni village.

Kenyans among foreign students likely to be deported from US if they take full-online classes in fall

Published

on

The Department of Homeland Security has issued a policy revision on foreign students studying in the United States which will lead to mass deportation of students who don’t take on-campus classes.

The department has restricted foreign students from attending classes completely online. The restrictions include the possibility of deportation. See full press release here below:

SEVP modifies temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking online courses during fall 2020 semester.

WASHINGTON – The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) announced modifications Monday to temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking online classes due to the pandemic for the fall 2020 semester. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security plans to publish the procedures and responsibilities in the Federal Register as a Temporary Final Rule.

Temporary exemptions for the fall 2020 semester include:

  1. Nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 students attending schools operating entirely online may not take a full online course load and remain in the United States. The U.S. Department of State will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools and/or programs that are fully online for the fall semester nor will U.S. Customs and Border Protection permit these students to enter the United States. Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status. If not, they may face immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings.
  2. Nonimmigrant F-1 students attending schools operating under normal in-person classes are bound by existing federal regulations. Eligible F students may take a maximum of one class or three credit hours online.
  3. Nonimmigrant F-1 students attending schools adopting a hybrid model—that is, a mixture of online and in person classes—will be allowed to take more than one class or three credit hours online. These schools must certify to SEVP, through the Form I-20, “Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status,” certifying that the program is not entirely online, that the student is not taking an entirely online course load this semester, and that the student is taking the minimum number of online classes required to make normal progress in their degree program. The above exemptions do not apply to F-1 students in English language training programs or M-1 students pursing vocational degrees, who are not permitted to enroll in any online courses.

Schools should update their information in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) within 10 days of the change if they begin the fall semester with in-person classes but are later required to switch to only online classes, or a nonimmigrant student changes their course selections, and as a result, ends up taking an entirely online course load. Nonimmigrant students within the United States are not permitted to take a full course of study through online classes. If students find themselves in this situation, they must leave the country or take alternative steps to maintain their nonimmigrant status such as a reduced course load or appropriate medical leave.

Due to COVID-19, SEVP instituted a temporary exemption regarding online courses for the spring and summer semesters. This policy permitted nonimmigrant students to take more online courses than normally permitted by federal regulation to maintain their nonimmigrant status during the COVID-19 emergency.

F-1 nonimmigrant students pursue academic coursework and M-1 nonimmigrant students pursue vocational coursework while studying in the United States.
