Gilad Millo’s message as son joins Israel Defense Forces

Published

on

Nairobi-based ex-diplomat Gilad Millo is a happy father after his firstborn son Omer got into the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as a paratrooper.

Celebrating his son, the singer shared it was hard saying goodbye to his 20-year-old son.

“I hugged you this morning for as long as I could until it was time to let you go. How can a father possibly be prouder?”

“My son, my boy, my firstborn, my pride, my Omer sending you off today to join the Israel Defense Force, as a paratrooper knowing that tomorrow mom and I are on a plane back to Kenya, was one of the more difficult moments we’ve known since you came into this world a little over 20 years ago,” he wrote.

In an Instagram post, Millo revealed that Omer decided to return to their native country singly, a state he represented for long as deputy head of mission at the Israeli Embassy in Nairobi.

“This is the choice you made, to be a real Israeli, to return to Israel alone and serve your country as a lone soldier and as you say, to aim as high as you can and give it your all. I ask God to protect and keep you healthy, safe, happy and strong! Counting the days till I can hug you again. Love you to the moon and back – your very proud Dad!”

The Israel Defence Forces (IDF), the Paratroopers Brigade -also called the 35th Brigade, was founded in September 1948.

Military service is mandatory to Israel citizens with few exceptions. Joining is done two times a year, April and December.  Millo’s son successfully enlisted in the December slot.

Men should be between 18 and 23 and stay for two years and eight months. Women; 18 and 22 and serve for two years.

VIDEO: DNA? Only my mother would know the truth, says Uhuru’s look alike

Published

on

The man at the centre of attention because of his uncanny resemblance to the Kenyan president is now speaking out.

“Only my late mother would know the truth,” he told a local reporter when asked whether he would consider taking a DNA test in order to establish his family tree and lineage.

“People call me Unye and I have really suffered because they all expect me to dish out money to them,” he said.

“I am not looking to capitalize on my resemblance to the president,” he added.

Kenyans were surprised this last week when a photo of the man appeared online.

The photo was shared numerous times on social media platforms and Kenyans, in their usual nature, took the opportunity to derive the much needed comic relief.

The man, whose name has since been revealed – Michael Njogo Gitonga – resembles the head of state in terms of the shape of his head, the structure of his facial features and intense eyes, which, without a doubt,  Uhuru inherited from his father, the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta. Watch:

VIDEO: Kipchoge tours Maasai Mara for the first time

Published

on

Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala, Narok county governor Samuel Tunai and Kenya Wildlife Services director John Waweru Saturday joined world marathon record holder Eliud Kipchoge in watching the Wildebeest Migration at the Maasai Mara game reserve.

Earlier, Kipchoge had tweeted that he had not been to the Mara.

Kipchoge was accompanied by his wife and children to the Maasai Mara game reserve.

The Olympic marathon champion would have been in Japan this weekend to defend his title at the Tokyo Games but because of the Covid-19 pandemic he is watching a different type of race across the Mara River—the Great Annual Wildebeest Migration.

Kipchoge is expected to sign as Magical Kenya destination ambassador by Kenya Tourism Board (KTB).

The engagement, which commenced in July 2020, will see Kipchoge promote Kenya as a preferred tourism destination both locally, regionally and internationally through various campaigns.

Trouble in Paradise?

Published

on

Celebrity couple Anerlisa Muigai and Tanzanian singer Ben Pol have set toungues wagging after Anerlisa unfollowed Ben on Instagram.

They also deleted each other’s pictures from their respective pages.

Ben Pol, however, still follows her on Instagram but seems to have also removed pictures of Anerlisa -even though he had fewer of them compared to the Keroche heiress.

The two are reported to have tied the knot in Tanzania in June this year with pictures and videos of the secret ceremony emerging on social media.

The new development has come as a shock to most of their fans since the couple hardly passed a day without documenting their romance on social media.

Ben Pol and Anerlisa got engaged in 2019 after dating for a while.

That same year, the Keroche Breweries heiress shared pictures of what looked like an introduction ceremony at her parents’ house.

Ben Pol was captured greeting Anerlisa’s parents as other invited guests looked on.

Their relationship was rumoured to be on the rocks in December 2019, but Ben Pol came out to dismiss the claims saying that he and his fiancée were planning for their wedding.

Anerlisa is still mourning the death of her sister Tecra Muigai.

Celebrities couples unfollowing each other on social media usually raise eyebrows.

Just last month, celebrity couple Frankie Just Gym It and Corazon Kwamboka unfollowed each other on Instagram but explained that they made the move to keep their relationship off the public eye.
