Safaricom had been ordered by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to give out  Mpesa transactions of a missing Congolese taxi driver. The driver has been missing for three weeks now.

Someone used Gasore Banganza’s phone to transact a money transfer on December 18, 2019, then he went missing the following day December 19, 2019.

Kayole DCI Constable Patrick Wachira is seeking orders from Chief Magistrate Heston Nyaga of the Makadara Law Courts to grant him details of the number that was sent the cash.

The liaison officer received the orders.

Banganza was using a taxi (reg no KCT 510N) at Kayole B Centre. His brother Jackson Munini reported that he is missing at Kayole Police Station.

‘Pick fights with people on your level!’ Huddah attacks Babu Owino

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Huddah Monroe, a controversial Kenyan socialite, has reprimanded MP Babu Owino for shooting a DJ at a club.

Babu shot DJ Evolve on Friday 7 am at B club in Kilimani Galana Plaza.

Huddah ranted in a series of Instagram stories, where she criticized Babu’s behavior

“Someone’s son, somebody’s brother. I am highly disappointed in Babu. Despite him being my friend. You’re a disgrace to the youth of Kenya. Fight with people on your level,” she wrote.

She adds;

“That boy was shot like a stray dog! I have four brothers. May God keep them safe and protect them from all evil. Keep DJ Evolve in your prayers guys.”

 

Kenyans felt and reacted the same way as Huddah;

Julius Mwaura Pride comes before a fall. Embakasi east seat should be declared vacant and Babu faces the full wrath of the law and instant justice. #BabuOwino #justicefordjevolve

Regina Otieno where do people get the nerve to end someone’s life, just like that. Kwani unaua nzi

Andrew Siro Why shoot a young man in the neck and his only crime is playing music to eke out a living in this harsh Kenya? #JusticeForDjEvolve

Bernard Mobutu This evidence is serious. It comes out that there was no attempt of physical confrontation from the victim. He seems to have premeditated his actions. Who was originally supposed to be at that point? Was it the DJ’s place or Babus Owino. That can also bring a twist!

Man’s awkward apology to wife after she finds his shaming post about her wedding dress

Published

on

Some women have dreamt of their wedding day since they were little girls and will do anything they can to make sure it’s exactly as they always wanted.

But for one bride-to-be, it wasn’t money or family fallouts standing in the way of her dream wedding – but her future husband.

The countdown to this couple’s summer wedding should have been exciting, but things started to go south when the groom refused to fork out the Sh132,000 (£1,000) his fiancé needed for her dream dress.

The man turned to Reddit hoping for some advice, but his post made things much, much worse.

He’s accused her of “acting like a toddler throwing a tantrum over a sparkly toy she can’t have” – and unsurprisingly it hasn’t gone down well.

They had both saved Sh1,016,000 (£7,689) towards the big day and spent a reasonable Sh 406,000 (£3,075) on rest of the wedding plans.

But things came crashing down when the groom suggested buying a Sh 5000 (£38) dress online.

He writes: “I know everything is more expensive when it has the term wedding attached to it what I wasn’t expecting was a Sh 95,900 ($950) dress plus Sh 12,115 ($120) veil” – that’s around Sh 109,000 (£822).

With the average wedding dress costing Sh165,765 (£1,254) in the USA and Sh 183,000 (£1,385) here in the UK, the bride’s chosen dress was actually a bargain.

But the groom didn’t think as much, saying that he couldn’t understand why so much money should be spent on a dress that would only be worn for one day.

He told other Reddit users that he’d done his research online to see where he could buy cheap wedding dresses and was surprised to find so many.

He said: “I tried to show her some dresses I found on a recommended app called Wish and others on websites but she was having none of it.”

And point blank refusing to splash the cash, despite the bride offering to buy it with the money she contributed herself – which seems like an easy fix.

The dispute ended with the bride leaving for her parents’ house after it turned nasty.

But things went from bad to worse when his bride-to-be came across his scathing post on the website – and he was forced to publicly apologise.

Shortly after the original post was shared a very, very awkward update was added to the bottom.

He revealed that his partner, Emma, had seen the thread he posted and so sent out a public apology.

“Emma found this thread, it was a mistake to post here and I’m sorry I posted our problems on Reddit. I am the a**hole.”

His post attracted 3,000 comments – which pretty much all disagreed with him.

One person said: “You say you don’t want her to cheap out, but then you say you want her to buy a Sh 5000 – Sh 10,000 ($50-100) wedding dress.

Another added: “That’s cheap even for a regular dress.”

Safe to say he won’t be looking to buy her any dresses from Wish in the future!

Why Uhuru loves the Barka Restaurant in Mombasa

Published

on

The Barka restaurant, a Swahili hotel serving mostly Coastal cuisine, has always been the place President Uhuru Kenyatta and other government VIPs go for lunch while in Mombasa.

It’s said to be his favorite.

On Thursday, Uhuru while in company of several government dignitaries arrived at the eatery and caught the hotel staffs and other guests without notice.

Hotel staffer Tiny Mzee said the abrupt visit forced the staff to request other guests in the VIP lounge to move to the common area and make room for the President.

On previous occasions, the hotel administration was notified in advance and given time to prepare.

The President’s protocol team would also arrive early and inspect the area and the food to be eaten by the head of state and his companions.

Why does the hotel attract VIPs?

The hotel in Old Town is a few metres from the Central police station and presumably the security of guests is guaranteed.

The hotel management says quality services and food has made them a preferred venue in the CBD area.

The management also said Barka is the only hotel where its guests, including the political class, are guaranteed privacy.

The eatery has three lounges, including a common lounge, a VIP lounge and a VVIP lounge.

“Our taste has never changed, our services have remained the same and we have always maintained a clean environment,” a manager said.

Barka is one of the few places serving the majority, not all, the Swahili dishes.

Though the hotel is famous for its biryani and pilau, visitors can have a taste of other dishes rarely found in restaurants.
