Deputy President William Ruto has accused Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leaders of inciting tribes against each other while drumming up support for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).

DP Ruto on Sunday claimed that politicians in Raila Odinga’s party have been using the rallies to whip up tribal animosity.

He claimed they preach negative ethnicity and hatred and say that for Kenyans to seek political seats and work in certain areas, they must seek their blessings.

“They are even profiling some communities. This is unacceptable,” he said, noting there can’t be any bloodshed and warning that the rallies may be stopped.

“As the Deputy President of Kenya, I will not allow anyone to cause chaos at the expense of citizens,” he said at Gatunduri Full Gospel Church in Embu County.

Dr Ruto said the “political conmen” must be rejected.

“If the reggae which is being witnessed at BBI rallies is about preaching (negative) ethnicity and profiling some communities, then we shall stop it,” he said.

He told the leaders, whom he did not name, that Kenya is a God-fearing nation and that ta few self-centred people will not be allowed to plunge it into political turmoil.

“When the leaders spoke at Narok’s BBI rally, they spoke of dividing Kenyans. As the government this is not what we want.”

The DP stressed that the BBI is meant to unite Kenyans, not divide them.

After violence was witnessed at the BBI rally in Kitui County, DP Ruto noted that this is no way to approach the debate.

He said bridges cannot be built with violence and that each person has a right to be heard as the BBI matter concerns all Kenyans.

CHURCH DONATIONS

Regarding church donations, the Deputy President criticised Mr Odinga, saying he is trying to use the BBI to block them.

“They are planning to ensure no more contributions towards church development. They will not succeeded,” he said, adding “this country does not belong to Raila”.

Mr Odinga, in his warning about a relentless war on corruption, has said politicians cannot take money acquired in questionable ways to churches.

The ODM leader has also told those opposed to the BBI reform process to ready to battle with his team at the polls.

“If you don’t want what we are doing then wait for us during the vote, ” he said, noting the BBI resulted from the need to end issues such as graft, poverty, illiteracy and disease, which have persisted since independence.

“We have to eliminate corruption. The culture where a clique of corrupt individuals plunder public resources then turn into overnight billionaires, whose sources of income are questionable, [has to end] ” he said last week.

MPs’ BACKING

Eight MPS from the Mt Kenya region, who are allied to Dr Ruto, accompanied him to the church service.

They alleged a plot to doctor the BBI report and use it to block Dr Ruto ambition to become President after the 2022 general election.

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria said, “The BBI is being secretly being changed to ensure the President is elected by MPs in in the National Assembly. This is  a scheme to ensure Ruto does not take over power after President Uhuru Kenyatta’s term expires.”

Mr Kuria and the other MPs said they want a popularly elected President and swore to reject a BBI that will dictate how they should pick their next leader.

SPECIAL SEATS

The lawmakers further claimed that the report is being manipulated to create seats for governors opposed to Dr Ruto’s ambition.

“That is why the BBI is being messed up. We are alert and hall disown the document,” said Muriuki Njagagua (Mbeere North).

The MPs assured the DP of their support and said nothing can stop hid bid to become President.

Later, while presiding over a fundraiser in aid of Embu mosque at Embu Stadium, Dr Ruto announced that Sh1.4billion had been set aside for an electricity project to benefit 25,000 residents.

Carolina Carlz and Mzungu hubby, Troy William had a candid interview done on Ebru TV about months ago. The detailed interview shed light on how they met and fell in love to a point of starting a family together.

Well, unlike most women dating Caucasian men these two did not meet on a dating app; but bumped into each other at Sarit center – and just like any other love story…the rest is history.

However their interview with Ebru TV may have left fans with the wrong impression about Carolina Carlz. As seen on the comment section it appears that most felt that the media personality came too strong; after asking her white man whether he would marry her.

Of course he has plans but since he did not reveal when. This however left Carolina looking like she was pushing him into marriage – but come on! Can’t a person have a sense of humor even when it comes to marriage? https://youtu.be/6m1IkOmUPZM

Kenyans attack

Well, there are those who had been waiting for such an opportunity in order to attack Carolina Carlz. From the comments on YouTube, clearly the fans left no stones unturned as they attacked the mother of one.

Probably the husband had no idea on how Kenyans react to such posts; hence their latest vblog where he issued an apology; for making his wife look bad and creating a platform for critics to attack her.

As seen on the video the Troy went on apologizing to his lovely wife; hence shutting down rumors claiming that his wife is clingy, pushy or desperate for marriage. It is no secret that they are different but at the end of the day; they still love each other.

Paul Walker’s heartbreaking autopsy and grim details that aroused daughter’s suspicions

Seven years ago today, Hollywood actor Paul Walker had enjoyed a fun-filled day with friends at a charity fundraiser in Los Angeles. Little did the Fast and Furious star know that when he agreed to take a spin in friend Roger Rodas’ 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, the ride would be his last.

The car ploughed into a concrete lamppost at high speed, tearing the vehicle almost in half and killing both Paul, 40, and Roger in an inferno of mangled wreckage. Helpless witnesses tried to extinguish the molten fireball that enveloped the car, but the flames could not be stopped. Given the horror of the crash, many believed father-of-one Paul must have been killed instantly.

But his autopsy revealed a heartbreaking fact – traces of soot were found in Paul’s windpipe, meaning he’d still been breathing as the fire raged. Furthermore, the report detailed how Paul’s body was so badly burned that he could only be identified by dental records and his charred organs were too damaged for donation. Meanwhile, Roger’s skull was fractured and the top part missing, leaving his brain exposed.

The coroner found no evidence of drink or drug use and recorded a verdict of death by “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries.” But Paul’s daughter Meadow didn’t agree and filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche, claiming her father initially survived the crash and could have escaped but was trapped by his seatbelt.

According to the lawsuit, which was obtained by TMZ and vigorously contested by Porsche, Paul was alive for one minute and 20 seconds after impact but couldn’t get out because the seatbelt “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis”.!

Lawyers claimed it had taken a whole minute for the fire to break out, giving Paul ample time to make his escape. They also alleged the car lacked sufficient door reinforcements and that manufacturers hadn’t used fuel lines that break free to prevent a fire in a crash.

The lawsuit claimed: “Absent these defects in the Porsche Carrera GT, Paul Walker would be alive today.”

But Porsche defended itself stating Paul was a “knowledgeable and sophisticated user” of the sports car and argued: “The perils, risk, and danger were open and obvious and known to him, and he chose to conduct himself in a manner so as to expose himself to such perils, dangers, and risks, thus assuming all the risks involved in using the vehicle.”

The battle was resolved in 2017 when the wrongful death lawsuit was withdrawn and a settlement reached although the terms have never been disclosed.
