Kalonzo tears into Kivutha Kibwana over retirement idea 

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Wiper party leader and former vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka has rubbished calls by Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana that it’s time for him to retire from politics.

In his response, Kalonzo said that if anyone should retire from politics it should be Governor Kibwana because he is older than him.

The wiper leader went on to say that the Makueni Governor was always years ahead of him even when they were in school, adding that he helped him retain his gubernatorial seat, which he had lost.

“First of all Kibwana is older than me he was always one years ahead of me in school… I don’t want to talk about personalities,” said Kalonzo.

He insisted that his time to become President of Kenya is now and even Kibwana knows that for a fact, calling on him to stop with the side shows.

Kalonzo mentioned that he made a promise at his late father’s funeral that the only person he will not run against in the presidential election is President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“The time for President Kalonzo Musyoka has come and he knows it deep inside and I repeat and I’m probably almost addressing him he’s my brother and he knows the time is now.

“So let’s stop these pretenses and I said this at my father’s funeral the only person I will not oppose is Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta because I gave a pledge at my father’s funeral,” added the Wiper leader.

Governor Kivutha Kibwana and other Ukambani leaders including Governors Charity Ngilu and Alfred Mutua have been calling on Kalonzo Musyoka to step down as the Ukambani Kinpin, a position they say he has held since 1985.

They have accused the Wiper leader of doing very little to bring development in the Ukambani region since he took the region’s mantle.

Ciiku Wa Soxxy, wife to Kenyan gospel spin master DJ Soxxy has advised Kenyans to always appreciate their parents when there is still time.

According to Ciiku, tomorrow is not guaranteed and the best thing is to make hay while the sun shines.

Giving an example of herself, Ciiku shared on how she and her family had planned to take their mother for a vacation only for death to snatch her.

‘Whisked mum to Cape Town to celebrate her 67th birthday, we had a blast and just for her to see another world out there.

For her 70th we had planned to do Bangkok.. But Corona snatched that opportunity from us.

Don’t wait for tomorrow, because you don’t know if tomorrow will come.’

A couple that sinqs I I together, stays together

Published

on

Music is the magic that keeps gospel artistes Joseph and Eunice Kwallah alive— whether practising at home, recording in studio or singing on stage.

The Kenyan-born couple currently based in United Kingdom [UK] has been producing songs together since last year. So far, they have recorded five songs. However, Eunice has composed many songs, which they are yet to be record.

“My wife’s passion for music can be traced back to her childhood. She always desired to be a gospel artiste,” says Joseph.

After relocating from Kenya to UK 13 years ago, Eunice thought that her dream of becoming a gospel artiste would never come true. Being in a foreign land, she didn’t know where to start. At some point, she wished to come back to Kenya, at least to record her songs. “I came to the UK on a work permit visa in 2006, working in the hotel industry. My wife and children joined me in 2007. Though she was happy being in a foreign land, she used to ask me if I knew someone who could help her produce her music there. This really challenged me,” Joseph recalls.

After talking to several Kenyans working abroad, the couple was referred to a Kenyan producer, Zangi Alex. This was the good news she had eagerly been waiting to hear for such a long time. Joseph also decided to support his wife by being a backing vocalist. “Finding a music producer and a videographer who are both Kenyans and have a good understanding of Kenyan music was the best thing that has happened to our music journey. Courtesy of them, we have managed to produce the best beats since they understand what the Kenyan music industry loves,” Joseph says.

The couple recorded their first song in August 2019. “We usually go to the studio, which is eight hours drive from where we live during school holidays, so we can also have time out together as a family. We practise at home during our off days, and at church – when the church was open,” he says. But Joseph reveals that though they are now recognised as some of the renowned Kenyan gospel artistes abroad, their

main aim is to reach, inspire and change people through music.

“Our music genre is gospel reggae. I loved reggae music when I was growing up. After I got born again, I moved on to love gospel reggae. Our inspiration comes from our daily life activities, listening to other gospel artistes and what God has done and still doing in our lives,” he adds.

Parenting in UK

There is solidity in playing music together. “You have someone who holds your back and you can rely on in music and in life. You sort of complement each other with every sound you make,” he says.

So, how have they managed to keep their music career alive despite being in a foreign country? Joseph says that having an audience in UK that loves their songs and others back here has kept them going.

“It hasn’t been easy for us because initially we used to have different work schedules. I used to work at night and during the day I would take care of our children when my wife was either at work or in school,” he reveals.

Joseph says parenting in the UK is an expensive affair. “There are no house girls unlike in Kenya. The closest to house girls in UK are child minders who are only hired to watch over the children and not to do any house chores like you would expect a house girl to do in Kenya. On the other hand, their fees are charged per hour and to say the least, it is the only desperate decision one can make,” says the father of three.

Also, children in UK cannot be left on their own unattended, until the age of 16. This is why Joseph had to make a sacrifice to work at night for him to take care of the children during the day.

Charity work

“We learned how to share responsibilities among ourselves, helping one another in house chores and other duties. Despite all this, we are still grounded on Christian ethos and that has made our life much easier. Each one of us knows their place in the family. I remain a husband and she remains a wife, but we mutually agree on issues that have to be done,” Joseph shares.

Apart from music, the couple is involved in charity work. In 2016 Joseph run 100 kilometres in UK to raise funds for Wetherby and District Food bank. He managed to rise Sh300,000 for the food bank. He has also been involved in charity work back in Kenya. Some of these charities are Tear Fund, Bible Society and Joanna Project – Leeds.

Together with family and friends, they have opened a community library in Ngong Township Primary School and they are hoping to open a second one in Nakuru county at a place called Tangi Tano. They also support some local football teams in Kenya by collecting football kits in UK and ship them over to Kenya.

“I was moved when I heard that there are people going hungry in the UK in the 21st century and because God has abundantly provided for me, I had to play my part by feeding the hungry. That is why I decided to run to raise some funds for the food bank,” he says.
