On Tuesday, the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji had ordered the arrests of the governor, his siblings, four children and business associates over the alleged embezzlement of Sh73.5 million from the county coffers.

The anti-graft agency sought Haji’s consent to charge the individuals with four counts among them; conspiracy to commit an offence of corruption, conflict of interest, money laundering, and unlawful acquisition of public property.

According to the DPP, the EACC launched a probe into the case through the governor’s designated proxies and employees of the county government.

“The investigations were in respect to Sh73,474,37.90 being the sum indirectly received by the governor, through his children who received multiple payments from companies trading with the county government between financial year 2013/2014 and 2016/2017 and further in respect of the purchase of the property at Loresho Ridge,” the DPP said. Haji further noted that he was satisfied that there was sufficient evidence to charge the mentioned persons with various criminal offences.

It is not the first time the Migori governor has come under probe.

The mother of one says when her marriage hit rock bottom, her ex-husband told her to pack her things and leave without her then young baby.

Wibroda emotionally called Papa Shirandula who came to her house and calmed her then husband down. He allowed her to stay and look for a house but definitely move out.

Narrating the emotional story to Joyce Gituro on YouTube, Wilbroda said;

“The person who made him cool down is the late Papa shirandula coz I called him crying,” she said.

Papa came to our house and talked to him that he should allow me to stay.

He came and sat us down, I was in a mess crying because of all the shouting.

After Papa had gone, every day he would come and ask me, have you found a house?”

Wilbroda made the decision to finally move out after her ex husband shouted at her leaving her young baby shocked.

“I would beg him not to shout. One day he shouted at me mtoto wangu alishtuka and he was too young. I told myself this is not the environment.”

“I would go to a supermarket and buy things and leave them there.

God came through so much for me as I had gotten a mega deal that gave me good money.

“It was at the time that I became Papa’s neighbour because I told me to help me look for a house for me.

“He looked for a house near his family’s and that is how we became neigbours.”

Her advise to those in the abusive marriages is that it is sad especially when kids are involved.

“I always tell people to leave and do not wait to be unhappy. This is the only life you have. Make your life your heaven. You come first.”

“We talk but about the baby. We have been having issues of how to raise the kid but the kid is mine. He is my child and so I don’t push too much. He is actually the last person I go to when I am in a problem.”

Why I quit music to be a truck driver in the US – Nyashinski

Published

on

Back in 2016 rapper Nyashinki’s music career was at it’s peak, he quit and relocated to the USA.

Nyashinki quit and started a career a a truck driver this was when his trajectory as a member of Kleptomaniacs was on the up and up.

Together with his family, the rapper, real name Nyamari Ongegu, got a chance to relocate to Delaware, USA, despite being aware he was cutting short his career.

Speaking on his YouTube channel first episode, Nyashinski said life did not favour him while there.

“When we moved abroad, I had completely quit music. I was working back in the States as a truck driver,” he said.

“I used to drive a lorry, trying to survive.”

NyashinskiThe ‘Malaika’ hitmaker says the first two years he was in Delaware, then he moved to Michigan.

“That experience taught me a lot. Two things that were life-changing for me back then was one, when I was here, I was a star,” he said.

“People recognised me everywhere and we were doing what we loved. I moved from a place where I was known and getting a bit of favours here and there to a place where no one knows me.”

“No special treatment and you must work because you have to eat.”

Another major lesson he learned in the 10 years he was away was having people around you and conversations are very important.

“That was coupled with the fact I was used to having people around me to a lonely life of driving a truck,” he said.

“There you are alone for over 16 hours. You only stop to fuel, sleep, shower and use the bathroom. So you find yourself enjoying small conversations with people you meet for five minutes. At least it was a way from that cage.”

He said the lines on the road even become hypnotising after a long distance and he looked at them, thinking about his life.

“I accepted that this is my life,” he said.

He says despite the hustles, he enjoyed living a normal life, where no one knew him. He could walk in a mall, on the roads and be normal.

The reason he came back to Kenya is after realising he was living a life that he felt he was not using his intelligence or exerting his passion and purpose.

“So back in the States, my friend told me to just go in studio and exert that pressure as a lyricist,” he said.

“I did not have to release the songs. But I found myself listening to a beat, creating a song and then wanting to perfect it and then I want people to listen. That is how I found myself back into the music world and came back home.”

Nyashinki has since been releasing hit after hit and recently, he released ‘Lucky You’ album, which he is still promoting.
