Suzanna Owiyo has been on the receiving end since Friday night after supporting the police during the enforcement of curfew.

In a tweet that she later deleted, Suzanna expressed her displeasure with Kenyans and termed them as ‘vichwa ngumu’.

“We are not at war, yes but at times policemen/women are forced to go hard on Wanjiku simply because of Tuko Vichwa ngumu’. Plan yourself not to be caught up on the wrong side of the law. Your safety is important as well as your health. Can we all have an understanding here?” she wrote.

Her sentiments rubbed netizens the wrong way more so after videos were shared of how police officers unleashed terror on hapless citizens on the first night of the curfew that was ordered by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The 10-hour daily restriction running between 7 pm and 5 am took effect on Friday and is part of the government’s measures to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Here is what people thought about Kenyan UNEP Goodwill Ambassador:

Jacky Habib said, “How in the world are you a UN goodwill ambassador and yet you’re endorsing police violence? You should be ashamed.”

Steve Ogolla commented, “It’s so sad to see Suzzana Owiyo struggling to fit in. But she struggles the wrong way. We will be here to defend her when brutality catches up with her.”

Marira Eugene posted, “You saw that woman at Likoni who had a seizure in the commotion right? It was 5:00 pm, what do you think she would say if she saw this tweet? Just bc you can afford to stay at home doesn’t mean you do PR for rogue police, you’re a national figure, shame on you #CurfewKenya.”

Alamin kimathi wrote, “Sad to part company here with one of my fav singers @SuzannaOwiyo like I did with my friend David Makali. I can’t take views that glorify #PoliceBrutality while sucking up to privilege and the state or whatever. This I’m doing to anyone else of their ilk going forward. Kwaheri.”

Oyier Nemia tweeted, “Some Kenyans like Suzanna owiyo who have stocked their deep freezer with months supplies of food think Kenyans who go out to fend for their families are kichwa ngumu. 75% of Kenyans would sleep hungry if they stayed home for 2 days#TeargasOnNRG Kibra #PoliceBrutality.”

Capital FM has killed its long-running evening show, Hits Not Homework, and replaced it with an all-new programme titled The Hype 984.

Hits Not Homework had been on the air for more than twenty years and targeted the youth with the latest music urban music and conversations relevant to that particular audience.

Its replacement aired for the first time on Tuesday from 7pm to 10pm and was hosted by Wanjira Longauer Mbuthia.

Wanluv, as she is popular known, resigned from the station in 2018 and used to host the mid-morning show, The Fuse.

The new show will air on weekdays from Monday to Thursday grabbing the traditional Hits Not Homework time-slot.

Hits Not Homework was previously hosted by Miss Mandii and Neville alongside DJ Roudge, DJ Joe Mfalme and Joe Kisila.

The show is widely considered one of the most iconic shows ever to air on Kenyan radio as it had some of the biggest names in the industry as its hosts.

From Eve D’Souza, Solo, Joey Muthengi, Amina Abdi Rabar, Anita Nderu and Anne Mwaura to now Wanluv, although she will now host its reincarnated version.

The show was dogged by controversy in 2018 after a talent search dubbed Capital One which was to find a replacement following Amina’s exit turned into a PR nightmare for the station.

Outraged Kenyans called out the station’s decision to hand Nderu the position of hostng the show despite already being a presenter at the station and also a judge of the competition.

Nderu, who was eventually unveiled as the new host alongside Anne Mwaura, Tracy Wanjiru and Jo Kisila, left the show barely a year later, in February 2019, with the station citing expiry of their one-year contracts.

‘I thought she would marry ‘Jesus’ not a divorcee,’ Pastor Kanyari shades Betty Bayo

Pastor Victor Kanyari has broken his silence after his ex-wife Gospel singer Betty Bayo got engaged during her 33rd birthday last week on Wednesday.

Sharing the news with her fans on social media, the Eleventh Hour crooner posted a cutout picture of her fiancé on one knee putting the engagement ring on her finger with the caption, ‘Taken’.

Speaking to Word Is, the controversial pastor said he is aware that the mother of his two children got engaged but was shocked to learn that the man she is currently dating is a divorcee.

“I thought she was going to marry ‘Jesus’ after all the hateful things she said about me,” he said.

“He is a man who left his family, a wife and two children somewhere. She did not look for Jesus, tell her to marry a ‘Jesus’ kind of a man so she can surprise us not a man who has been used somewhere.”

Kanyari hopes that his children will be well taken care of.

“I have given my children the best life and I promise to take them to the best schools in America. Now that there is another man in her life, I hope he will be chipping in.”

Betty is now planning for a grand wedding and Pastor Kanyari said he is invited.

“I can’t attend her wedding although I am invited. She should continue with her life.”

“I came before him and at least opened some way for him. He can continue with where I left although there were others before me.”

Asked how well he knows Betty’s new bae, Pastor Kanyari referred to him as a broke man.

“He is from Central Kenya, but can’t compete with my level. He is a hungry man, that is the best way I can describe him. I can buy them lunch only that they have not shown up.”

He continued and said that instead of attending to the wedding, he will offer to pay for their honeymoon.

“Hii ni mbio ya farasi na punda. I do not know why she has rushed things since I did not expect her to be with that kind of a man. I expected a different kind of man. I am cuter…”

On the other side, Kanyari says Betty is still his friend and they call each other.

“She calls me anytime she is in a problem or is stressed. I wish her well and we shall meet at the end of all these.”

Pastor Kanyari says he has no hurry in moving on.

She then declined to speak anything concerning her engagement.

“I am not ready to speak about it now.”
