Mwalimu Rachel speaks after Sailors Gang drag her into yet another money scandal

Published

on

Radio presenter Mwalimu has not been having an easy time with the Sailors Gang gang especially now that there is beef. This comes as a big surprise considering the fact that she discovered the boys; back when Gengetone had just become a thing in the entertainment industry.

A few months later, the presenter and Sailors Gang gang apparently can’t see eye to eye due to a few reasons here and there. The whole drama however started after Mwalimu Rachel was accused of squeezing one of Sailors gang friend’s balls.

Sailors Gang preforming

Yes, this was more than drama but a real case that saw the presenter present her self in court for the hearing. Since then, nothing has been the same between the former manager and the Gengetone artists.

Accused of refusing with their YouTube logins

Well, this past weekend rumor spread around claiming that Mwalimu Rachel had refused to hand over Sailors Gang Gang Youtube channel. According to reports, the presenter asked for Ksh1.5 million in order for her to grant them access; now that they are under the Blackmarket record.

She tweeted;

Smart ladies run businesses. Not their mouths. Nawapemda wote! I shall address the nation later my loves. Mimi sikimbilii maneno. Kwa sasa tuchape kazi.

The presenter went on to add;

Put emotions to the side when running business.

Mwalimu Rachel speaks

Of course, this makes the NRG presenter look selfish and greedy; but after coming across her latest Tweets, we also understand that this was more of a business for her.

Having the boys walk out on her with no agreement – might be the reason why they now feel that she is taking advantage of the situation. However, truth is one way or another both parties will have to benefit if they decide to head to court.

Appeal for support to establish a free cancer screening center in Kenya

Published

on

BY JACKLINE N. MWATI

Kenya Cancer Care Foundation is a community-based organisation focusing on offering free cervical and breast cancer screening to all women in Kenya, starting with a pilot program in Gatundu North Sub-County in Kiambu County.

We also offer free prostate cancer screening to all men from 45 years and above as well as provision of  free HPV vaccine to all the Girls from the age of 10-12 years.

We strive to have a cancer free nation.

To support this project, kindly send you donation to the phone number provided in in the flyer. You can also call us and we will be happy to answer any questions.

The KENYA CANCER CARE FOUNDATION® is a subsidiary project of the Maryhelp Mission Rehabilitation and Counselling center. The project was founded in the year 2016 to cater for free cancer screening and ensuring there is proper referrals.

Its main goal is to ensure there is an equitable distribution of FREE cervical, breast and prostate cancer services to all the Men/women of reproductive age insured or un-insured. It also ensures all the girls 10-12 years are vaccinated against HPV [Human papilloma virus] .

We believe in the modality and the methodology that no man/woman should die of prostate, breast and cervical cancer since it’s a disease that is treatable and manageable if early screening, vaccination and correct diagnosis techniques are instituted.

Practically if all the men/women are screened regularly for prostate, cervical and breast cancer then it’s evident that any form of cancer will be detected early and proper therapy instituted. Meanwhile we are currently working with several cancer institutes for the treatment and diagnostic procedures as part of our referrals. We are advocating for these tests to be FREE to all and mandatory to our population. This will ensure we achieve our mission by giving these expensive tests to those who cannot afford them. On achieving this,

We are in our initial phase towards the construction of our cancer diagnostic and treatment hospital along Thika-Mang’u road.

  It’s quite important to note that Kiambu County is only served by one cancer referral Centre that is Kenyatta University Hospital. There should be a MODEL structure put in place to have at least one cancer screening and diagnostic Centre in every Sub County.

The Centre will cater for early screening and early treatment according to the WHO protocol. One of this model pilot project is the one that we are proposing to have in Gatundu North then the same will be duplicated in Githunguri then we shall roll out this project to other counties in Kenya. It’s important to emphasize on the role of cancer screening as a pilot project.

 More details to follow…

All the cervical images captured will be evaluated and decisions made if they are positive or negative for cancer. The data obtained will be stored in a smart card and all patient information/data will be stored there in a PIN code secured smart card.Also in case the Smart card is misplaced, then the finger prints will be used in case of otherwise.

VIDEO: Police clash with rival groups over running of public toilets in CBD

Published

on

Police officers were on Monday forced to use tear gas to quell chaos that rocked the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) after rival groups clashed over the management of public toilets.

Members of the public were caught in the melee and were unable to access some public toilets in the CBD after armed officers were deployed to prevent rowdy youth from accessing the facilities.

A group from Starehe Constituency claimed they were being arm-twisted to surrender toilets by two groups from Eastleigh and Dandora with the help of close allies of the Nairobi governor.

“I build this toilet, and when the Sonko regime came into power. Unknown people were going round trying to take over the toilets,” said Wangeci ‘Simba’, a public toilet owner in the CBD.

Other owners described how some groups were using police officers to forcefully evict them.

“These groups from Eastleigh and Dandora have been threatening us and using police to fake charges against us yet we have all documents to show that we are the rightful managers of this toilet,” they said.

At some point the police were forced to lob teargas canisters to disperse the irate crowds spoiling for a fight.

Calm was later restored after the arrival of Central Police OCS who engaged the warring faction.

Since 2018, there has been a back and forth in the city over the running of the toilets since governor Mike Sonko threatened to take and hand them over to City Hall if the private entities failed to end their constant infighting.

The Starehe Constituency group has now called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services boss Major General Mohammed Badi to pick out the legitimate group that will run and operate the toilets.

“We are tired of these fights, let Badi solve this stalemate once and for all because we pay taxes and we have court documents protecting our group from victimisation,” they added.

The public toilet industry in Nairobi rakes in more than a billion shillings every year and is controlled by a few groups and individuals that operate like cartels.

Fights for their control are common and vicious as the groups jostle for a share of the money.

Nairobi County government said there are 68 public toilets in the city with 17 located within the CBD.

They are operated under the public-private partnership that came into effect in 1999 when the defunct Nairobi City Council engaged the business community to find a solution to the deplorable conditions of the facilities.

Many others were privatised during the regime of Nairobi’s first governor Evans Kidero.

Dr Kidero said the toilets were privatised because City Hall had no capacity to run them.

The operators were to charge a small fee for maintenance of the 517 private toilets spread across the county, mainly in the city centre, estates and markets.

A single toilet in the CBD and markets that charges Sh10 per visit can collect as much as Sh30,000 in a day while those in the estates realise between Sh1,000 and Sh3,000.

From 63 public toilets, it is estimated that more than Sh1.9 million is collected every day translating to Sh56.7 million in a month and more than Sh680 million in a year.

The 517 private ones, with an average daily collection of Sh2,000, bring in Sh1 million every day, over Sh31 million every month and Sh372 million in a year.

This money explains why the public toilet sector is fiercely guarded with even politicians once in a while being roped in to protect the operators.

The toilets are managed by individuals, youth groups, women groups and the Central Business Hawkers Association and some are run by supporters of influential city politicians, who claims to have constructed several toilets years back.
