Jowie’s friends are fundraising for his bail

Published

on

Joseph “Jowie” Irungu, the main suspect in the unresolved murder of Kenyan businesswoman Monica Kimani was on Thursday freed on a Ksh. 2 million cash bail.

High Court Judge, Justice James Wakiaga, ruled that there were no compelling reasons to have the suspect detained any longer since up to 15 witnesses have already testified.

Moments after this announcement was made, his friends, led by social media influencer Joe Muchiri, have launched a “Paybill Number” and requested Kenyans to contribute as little as they can towards the release of the man whose last taste of freedom came in September 2018.

The move was however met with a significant amount of negative responses, with many Kenyans finding it hard to understand how Jowie’s friends – often seen living their best lives in various city joints – couldn’t raise the amount on their own.

Mercy Masika calls out on Gospel artistes who have derailed the quality of gospel music

Published

on

Gospel singer Mercy Masika has deemed today’s Kenyan Gospel music as none inspiring and business-oriented, unlike some years back when singing for God was more intentional from a religious perspective.

Taking the matter to her Instagram page recently, the singer poured her heart out, stating today’s Gospel music has declined in quality, which undercuts the sole purpose of ministering to audiences. “The reason much of today’s music lacks inspiration and memorability is that people have blurred the lines and turned it into too much of a business,” she captioned.

The mother of two explained that some Gospel artistes often fail to remain true to their purpose of creating music. “It takes moral courage to remain true to inspire, impact and be true to who you are called to be,” Masika added. She went further to reiterate that music takes time to pay; she advised the younger generation of gospel musicians to remain authentic and avoid being led astray for monetary gains.

“Music often takes time to pay, but when it finally does, it pays very well. There’s a confidence that comes from being true,” she concluded. The award-winning musician could have been passing on a deliberate message to gospel-turned secular artistes who quit gospel music for greener pastures.

A while ago, controversial artiste Bahati defended himself as to why he left the gospel music scene for secular. In an interview, the artiste revealed that the gospel music industry is “rotten” and has always been criticized for being controversial. Bahati said he no longer felt welcomed in the gospel scene. However, the singer made it clear that leaving the gospel industry doesn’t mean his faith and belief in God has been compromised.

“I was fought a lot in the gospel industry, but I knew I was not doing gospel music for the people; I was doing it for God. I have just separated myself from the gospel industry for a while but not from God. Christ and the Lord is my personal saviour,” he said. He added that his songs are meant for his audience who listen to secular music and those who love gospel music.

Locals have been camping at the bank of River Kuja in Ndhiwa, Homa Bay County since Friday in search of the body of a 37-year-old woman who was attacked and killed by a crocodile.

The reptile is reported to have disappeared with Millicent Akoth’s body after killing her before emerging from the water with the body clenched in its jaws and disappearing again.

Akoth had gone to fetch water when the large crocodile “pounced” on her throwing her in the deep part of the river before biting her, according to witnesses.

West Kabuoch Location Chief Joseph Ogur said the crocodile disguised itself as stone, making it impossible for the woman to notice it.

“The lady fell into the water and the reptile attacked her before it carried her body and ‘displayed it’ a few minutes later before disappearing with it,” said Ogur.

Locals say the reptile was last seen at around 4:30pm on Friday displaying the body before disappearing into an unknown part of the river at 4.30 pm.

The mother of three children was in the company of one of her children when the incident occurred.

Her family, friends and relatives, however, remain optimistic that they will retrieve the body.

The residents Manyuru village, West Kabuoch Location have complained of attacks by wild animals in the area.

There have been allegations about the two being together but Joyce has labeled it hearsay and fake news.

“How dumb do you think I am to post a married man (not that I’d ever be with one) on my IG,” she wrote.

Joyce found the news hilarious adding guys just mistook a person that was holding her, in a trendy photo, to be DJ Mo.

“Fake news is actually hilarious. So you guys went from not knowing what the man looks like (you just have a blurry photo that makes him look like a shadow), and now all over sudden its DJ Mo? Lol,” Joyce added.

The TV girl must have found the news hilarious and wondered why people would want to tarnish her reputation with such allegations.

Size 8’s take on cheating

Back in 2017, TUKO.co.ke reported on a story where Size 8 claimed that one should be ready to forgive the other when he/she cheats in marriage.

Speaking during a recording of their vlog, the singer said that partners should always be ready to forgive each other in a relationship even when cheating occurs.

“And whoever says they cannot forgive, that is a root of pride,” she said. “Who tells you cannot do that?”

She told her fans cheating shouldn’t be allowed in marriages but in case it happens, couples should find a way to get past it.

“So when your spouse cheats, remember you cheat on God all the time but God forgives you. So forgive your spouse,” she added.
