There was drama at the Bomas of Kenya Wednesday as the Director of Digital New Media and Diaspora at the Presidential Strategic and Communication Unit (PSCU) Dennis Itumbi was escorted away from the presidential podium by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s security detail after the unveiling of the BBI report at Bomas of Kenya. 

Two bodyguards escorted him away from the dais behind the first layer of Uhuru’s security detail in front of which stood the president, his deputy William Ruto, Raila Odinga, BBI taskforce chairman Yusuf Haji and Tanzania Foreign Affairs Minister Palamagamba Kabudi.

But one of the bodyguards remains with him most likely to prevent him from going back to the spot they had removed him from. Later in a tweet, Itumbi downplayed the issue saying, “No embarrassment. Just another great day in office….of course you see I still remained on the podium. Just one of those moments when everyone is just doing their job…hahaa enjoyed. Tuko sawa.”SEE ALSO :Ruto ‘death’ letter scared us: Witness

Netizens commented on the incident with some questioning why the Director of New Media at PSCU would be escorted from a State event.

Nelson Mandela’s eldest daughter Zindzi Mandela dies aged 59

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Former South African President and anti-apartheid crusader Nelson Mandela’s daughter is dead.

Zindziswa Mandela died on Monday morning aged 59 years.

Her death was confirmed by the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the country’s Department of International Relations.

She was serving as South Africa’s ambassador to Denmark at the time of her death.

Just like her parents – Nelson Mandela and Winnie Mandela, – Zindzi cut a figure of anti-apartheid freedom fighter following the footprints of her parents who suffered in the hands of the white government.

The late diplomat bore the brunt of the harsh regime after her father was imprisoned when she was only 18 months old.

Thereafter, her mother would also be in and out of jail often letting her be taken care of by her elder siblings.

In 1977, her mother was taken to Brandford and later to Orange Free State jails. Zindzi supported her and acquired her education culminating it in Degree in Law at Cape Town University.

This enabled her to emerge as the spokesperson of her parents.

The family have not given the information on the cause of her death.

She is survived by a husband and four children.

Published

An post meeting photo of Kenyan exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna with a friend in Canada has left his online followers asking government to allow him back.

Miguna had a joint photo with one Jackson Igbinosun at the Black Gold Think Tank but it was his apparent unkempt beard and now slender body that many netizens noticed.

According to the online community, the firebrand politician looked weary, fatigued and much older, joking that he was aging before he could liberate them from “despotic jaws”.

“You are getting older each day general before you liberate us from the despots. We still believe, hope and trust in you,” joked Olleta Dennis.

Some even chided him that he was no longer the self-declared general they knew two years ago on the night of his deportation when government authorities allegedly sedated him.

Miguna was kicked out of the country in 2018 after his involvement in the infamous swearing in of the ODM party boss Raila Odinga as the ‘people’s president’.

He made several futile attempts to fly back home in January 2020, but the government issued a red alert to block his return.

After his last deportation on March 28, 2018, he continued to live in his adopted country Canada.

What killed popular televangelist Morris Cerullo

Published

on

One of the most celebrated televangelists Morris Cerullo has died.

The evangelist has been battling pneumonia over the past few days.

On July 9, a message posted on his Facebook page revealed that not all was well and the end was nigh for the preacher.

“Urgent Prayer Request: Dear Friends, we would appreciate your immediate prayers for Dr Cerullo who is being treated for pneumonia at the hospital. Please also pray for Theresa who has been working around the clock to assist in his care. She needs your prayers too for extra strength at this time. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for Morris and Theresa!” read the post which attracted over 32,000 reactions, 14,000 comments and 3,500 shares.

Born 88 years ago in Passaic, New Jersey, US, Cerullo grew to become one of the most listened to and watched preachers of all time, perhaps in the league of renowned televangelists like Billy Graham.Young Cerullo grew up in orphanages after his parents died in a road crash. Having been born into a Jewish-Italian family, he converted to Christianity at the age of 14, a move which is said to have not gone well with the owners of the Orthodox Jewish orphanage.

He ran away and started preaching at the age of 16. He would later conduct several open-air crusades and ministry meetings across the world. His ministry was premised on healing and miracles. At the age of 59, he bought the assets of the bankrupt ministry of Jim Bakker.

An astute businessman, Cerullo invested in media and bought a cable news network called PTL which he later renamed INSP-The Inspiration Network of which one of his sons would become CEO and later chairman. The evangelist got married to Theresa in 1951 and were blessed with three children, David, Susan and Mark.

His ministry went beyond the US and to various continents in the world including Africa. He came to Kenya in August 2017 and paid a courtesy call to President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi. He also visited Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia during that tour.

But Cerullo has had his own fair share of controversy. At one point he was accused of tax evasion in California but the charges were dropped. In another incident, the preacher was accused of having underrepresented his income between 1998 and 2000 but on August 8, 2007, a court in California ordered the indictment to be dropped. In 2001, a group calling itself UK Apologetics took on the preacher accusing him of what they called ‘Massive Distortions’, questioning his mode of preaching.

The group charged: “Cerullo, who is widely-known to be fabulously wealthy, has claimed many miracles but many observers strongly question the validity of some of these claimed ‘miracles,’ indeed, a few of these are genuinely tragic. One such case is the case of the little girl, riddled with cancer, who is informed by Cerrullo that she is “healed.”

Tragically this poor little girl was dead within weeks.”In 1991, he was accused for airing miracles he claimed to have performed, leading to the suspension of the license of a TV station or broadcasting a programme dubbed Victory with Moris Cerullo, until the station agreed to place a disclaimer stating, “Morris Cerullo World Evangelism cannot substantiate the claims made by participants featured in this programme.”

His death was yesterday received with an outpouring of grief on social media. John King’oo, a Nairobi resident, wrote on Facebook: Rest in power Dr Morris Cerullo. Immediately after high school, I attended your meetings in Nairobi.
