Kenyan actor Nick Mutuma has broken his silence, 4 years after he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a viral Twitter thread.

In a statement posted to Twitter on Monday, Mutuma said the resurfacing of the 2016 allegations had presented a week-long nightmare to him and his family.

“The allegations that came out against me in 2017 have since resurfaced and have taken a toll on me… they have affected my family and sadly continue to affect the people in my personal and professional life,” his statement reads.

He acknowledged that although he had had his own share of imperfections, he was not the monster a section of Tweeps had portrayed him to be.

“I do not want my silence to be interpreted as guilt or complacency, yet I do not want to speak and have my words misrepresented, I have been tried at the court of public opinion and ruled guilty by persons with malicious intentions,” he added.

According to Mutuma, a section of social media ne’er -do-wells were hell-bent on tearing down a career that he has fought tooth and nail to build for the last 10 years.

“They have been trying to discredit all my hard work, and they have done their best to see that my dreams never come true,” he explained.

“I would like to categorically state that I am against any form of abuse against women and I have always been,”

Rachel Mwangi whose partner has written the viral thread has since clarified that the matter- whose truth has been subject of online debate- was put to bed in 2017.

“In 2016, there was an incident between Nick Mutuma and I, that my partner KoomeGitobu posted on social media in November 2017, Mutuma reached out to us shortly after, and we resolved it amicably and privately in 2017,” Ms Mwangi wrote on Twitter.

Mutuma is currently riding the coattails of the global success of two of his films- Disconnected and Sincerely Daisy- which recently premiered on Netflix

Comedian Churchill says just like any other business, coronavirus has hit him too.

Churchill, real name Daniel Ndambuki has been doing ‘The Journey Series’ on his TV show which is originally a stand-up comedy show that attracts thousands of viewers.

Speaking to Mpasho, Churchill revealed;

“We had invested quite some amount in the production of the show. And now, you can’t use that gear, you have to put all that aside. You cannot set up something so big for like 200 people, that is loss-making. It almost takes us to where we began. We remain positive though”

Adding;

“I am happy with all that is happening from all other comedians.”

Churchill said this after the launch of TuKo App, which he is the brand ambassador.

TV news anchor Anne Kiguta has announced that she would like to share with her fans more about her life.

However, she draws a line on exposing her children to the limelight.

Anne has three children, one from her previous marriage and fraternal twins with Jomo Gecaga.

Responding to a fan who asked her about her babies, Anne posted a photo of her and her twins but blocked out the faces.

In her response she explained,

“Gosh, so many of you have said this… was the number one response. Well, I will have to let you down on that my loves.”

She added,

“I’m rather traditional (believe it or not) so I’m vehemently against it. My babies are are all still too young, including the eldest, to be on social media.”

Anne continued,

“In fact I really regret having posted my eldest at all. Mummy already has a pretty public life. They deserve their privacy.”

But not to break her fans hearts, Anne promised,

“A reference every once in a while but nothing more than that for a long long time.  Hope  you understand.”

In another post she still emphasized,

“That is my son. Quite the charmer. If only I could tell you half of what they say! But all these are are to me sacred moments…really can’t share much more.”

Not to be daunted though, Anne promised to talk about other aspects of her life.

Here are the various topics she is open to talking about.
