Mathira Member of Parliament Rigathi Gachagua has mocked a delegation of Mt Kenya leaders who visited Opposition chief and Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga’s home in Bondo over the weekend claiming that they were fake elders.

The outspoken legislature while speaking in an interview at Citizen TV on Monday 12 October 2020 pointed out that Kikuyu elders conduct themselves with respect and do not queue for food as witnessed at the ODM leader’s residence.

He went on to state that those who visited Raila Odinga were brokers and had their own agenda adding that Kikuyu elders are always served while seated and their meat is made in a special way.

“If you wanted to know they were not elders, Kikuyu elders do not queue food, they do not take soda and bread, they only take meat, and they don’t even take it with ugali or mukimo. They are served while seated and the meat is made in a certain way,” said the MP.

A section of Kikuyu elders at Raila Odinga’s residence. Kikuyu elders do not queue for food, do not take soda or bread, they only eat meat – MP Gachagua dismisses elders who visited Raila in Bondo.

Gachagua explained that to be considered a Kikuyu elder, someone has to have a home and be respected in the community.

He claimed that those invited by Raila Odinga were young people who were not even married.

“The definition of a Kikuyu elder is cast in stone, it is somebody who has a home, has done certain things in life and is respected in that community.

“Those were young people who were taken there, the likes of Zack Kinuthia are young people who are not even married,” he added.

On Saturday 10 October 2020, the former Prime Minister hosted about 700 elders from the Mt. Kenya region and about hundreds of others from the Luo community to reportedly reflect on the country’s political future ahead of the 2022 General Election.

The elders were who dressed in their traditional attire were led by former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth, Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of Education Zack Kinuthia, and nominated Jubilee MP Maina Kamanda.

Grace Ekirapa: I’ve been unable to access DJ Mo since cheating scandal

Published

on

Grace Ekirapa, who hosts NTV’s gospel show Crossover 101, has revealed that she had not been in touch with her co-host DJ Mo since rumors he was cheating on his wife Size 8 rocked the internet a fortnight ago.

Ever since reports emerged that DJ Mo, real name Sammy Muraya, was cheating on his wife of seven years Size 8 causing a social media frenzy, the DJ was barred from co-hosting the show with Ekirapa and is thought to be busy trying to glue his marriage together.

Weighing in on the scandal rocking the marriage of her co-host, Ekirapa revealed that she had been trying unsuccessfully to reach out to DJ Mo.

“I haven’t spoken to him and to be honest. It’s been hard for me to get to him. My phone calls haven’t been going through, I know it’s been difficult for him and I think when he is ready he will talk to me. Meanwhile the show has been going on without him but that’s the management’s decision.” Ekirapa revealed during an Interview with Radio Jambo.

She, however, felt DJ Mo should be given a second chance.

“What I will have to say is, when you get saved you won’t stop sinning, you can’t be perfect but there will be consequences. We make mistakes. DJ Mo is an amazing guy and if there’s a chance of working with him again, I would love that.” She added.

The singer also delved into the rumors that once emerged that she was having an affair with DJ Mo, a married man.

“During the launch of Crossover is when the rumor started. We had done a couple of photo shoots on different days and most of the time his hands was on my shoulder or mine on his and so people got talking.” she explained.

‘Our marriage is currently in a tough space’ Says Vivianne, Sam West responds

Published

on

Motivational speaker-cum music manager Sam West has responded after his wife Vivianne hinted that they are going through marital problems.

According to a social media post by Vivianne, people always assume they are a perfect couple but they are not.

Speaking exclusively to Mpasho, Sam West said he hopes things will work out for them.

‘We just have a few domestic challenges but we are working on them. We juts need prayers.’

Asked if this is just clout chasing considering his wife just released a new jam, he responded

‘No it’s not kiki, it’s just a coincidence.’

Sam Was responding to the post below by his wife Vivianne

‘Today I want to be very candid.. nataka niongee wazi.. The world first met  when he decided to propose on the biggest TV show in the country.

I was shocked and this was unexpected for me.

I couldn’t say yes or no so I sat there in front of 40mill Kenyans hoping the world would swallow me but it didn’t, so I smiled.

First forward I have worked with Sam West and been his woman for 4 years.

So to get to the point this post is for you who understands that what society has labeled as marriage is one of the hardest things to exist in.

We are two humans who have learnt the hard way. We are friends and we will always care about one another. Our union has however taken a kick to the stomach.’

Vivianne added

‘ IG in-laws can attest to the fact that I haven’t posted Sam on my feed for the past one month or so.

We felt it would be important to share the truth that marriage can get difficult..

Social media couples have created illusions of perfect marriages which we feel are quite misleading.

To be honest we have ignored each other’s needs in our union . Expectations and control took over our relationship. We are in a tough space and to be honest we are hoping we will overcome the current challenge.

Hii sio Kiki. For those who love even one of us remember us in your prayers. May God’s will be done.

In the meantime ukipata unayemdhamini never take them for granted., #najua

Body of missing Maranda teacher recovered in River Nzoia

Published

on

The body of a teacher at Maranda High School who went missing two weeks ago has been found floating in River Nzoia.

The decomposed body of Kevin Otieno Ongoma was sighted by a resident of Sio Port at Bukoma area on Thursday evening.

The 33-year-old teacher went missing on October 10, 2020.

Siaya county police commander Mr Francis Kooli on Friday told the Nation the deceased’s family members positively identified the body following its discovery.

“Someone spotted a body in the river with similar clothes to the ones the teacher had when he went missing. The school was later informed about the discovery,” Kooli said.

The police commander said they suspect the teacher may have committed suicide.

“It is highly suspected that he might have committed suicide by throwing himself into the river but investigations will however establish what happened,” said Mr Kooli.

Suicide theory

But some family members have dismissed the suicide theory, claiming that the body of the deceased had injuries, an indication that the teacher could have been tortured, killed and dumped in the river.

They asked the police to conduct thorough investigations into the teacher’s death.

The Nation has established that the deceased will be buried on Monday, October 26 at his home village in Mbosie.

A teacher at Maranda High School, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told the Nation that a burial committee has already been formed at the school.

“We have been meeting to make burial arrangements, including contributing money towards the same ,” he said.

A police report seen earlier by the Nation indicates that the teacher, who headed the head biology department in the school, was last seen leaving the school while driving his car.

The vehicle was found the following day abandoned near River Nzoia in Ugunja Sub-county.

According to detectives investigating the matter, the teacher lived with his family within the school compound.

“He left the school quarters that morning and drove himself to an unknown destination,” said Mr Kooli.

His two mobile phones went off near the banks of river Nzoia where his vehicle was recovered.

Police said the body is being preserved at Ambira Sub-county Hospital mortuary.
