Celebrated gospel musician Julius Owino Ooko served the ruling Jubilee Party with a demand letter on Monday the 2nd of November 2020 regarding his hit song ‘Utawala’.

Juliani’s legal counsel, James T. Makori served the better to Jubilee’s secretary-general Raphael Tuju. In the letter, Makori demanded that within 72 hours, the ruling party should admit to infringing copyright and going against the law so that the two parties can meet and discuss on a quantum.

The letter also threatened that should Jubilee ignore the letter and their requests, then they will meet in court.

“Should you chose to ignore this letter, we have unequivocal instructions from our client to institute mandatory legal proceedings against your party for damages both general and specific in a court of law.”

Jubilee had used the hit song as the soundtrack in their promotional video on the 31st of October 2020.

The letter also noted that although Jubilee is the ruling party, it went against the same law it abides by.

Juliani further bashed Jubilee for using his song without his consent.

The Kenyan law dictates that only the copyright owner has the right to reproduce, perform, publish/make known, make an adaptation. ANy other person would need to seek the copyright owner’s permission before doing any of the above.

Juliani also complained that Jubilee using his song has made people view him as a partisan and a BBI promoter.

He further claimed that the BBI goes against some of the issues in his song, including job creation.

“Your actions go against the very principles that our party stands for, such as job creation and income-generating opportunities for the youth. Your promotional video goes against building any bridges as it denies a young creative Kenyan his right to earn an honest living,” the letter reads in part.

A Kenyan man is minting money in the UK by brewing and selling the locally produced alcoholic drink, Muratina.

The brew is largely illegal in Kenya, however, for King’ori Wambaki, the Kikuyu traditional drink has made him a household name in Cheshunt, UK.

Wambaki has spent over 27 years in England, shifting from studies, working for foreigners and unveiling his own business.

He packages the drink, dubbed Muratelia, as wine spiced with honey. It contains 12 percent alcohol and is sold to customers under the age of 35.

Muratelia is sold at between £10 (Ksh 1,491) and £25 (Ksh 3,727) depending on whether it’s sold on counters, retail shops, or restaurants.

“Cheshunt is located outside London. We used ingredients that are available here in the UK as we have not yet reached a point where we can import products from Kenya.

“The business provides income better than what I can earn while being employed, Wambaki who hails from Othaya, Nyeri stated while speaking with a local daily.

He disclosed that he made in-depth research and business plans on how to market his product. It has also been incorporated in the modeling and fashion industry through branded bags and clothes.

He has also created employment for the youth in the UK as he owns three restaurants and four shops.

What worked for him was that he had no competition as the drink was a new entity in the UK market. Wambaki is keen on expanding his business and the entrepreneur targets the local Kenyan market.

He said that he had applied for a business permit and license in Kenya, seeking to introduce his upgraded brand.

“The whites love it despite it being a Kenyan drink. In June we may start producing it in Kenya,” he added.

According to his LinkedIn page, the economist holds a Master of Science in Finance and Management and a Bachelor of Science in Economics.

My uncle turned me into a sex pet after mum’s death

When her mother died in 2016, Shanice (not her real name), then aged 15, was left under the care of her grandmother. Her uncle, however, took advantage of the void left in her life to turn her into a sex toy.

Such was the strangeness of life that Shanice came face-to-face with, where a man who should have assumed the role of responsible care for his late sister’s daughter, turned into a monster to devour her chastity.

She says if her mother was still alive, she would have pursued her education to actualise her dream of becoming a clinical nurse and eventually venture into politics to gain a platform to defend the poor.

“But it was not designed to be so…I do not know whether it was God’s wish that it be so… But as a believer whose faith is hinged on the principle that everything happens with a purpose, I have learnt to appreciate my situation today as I hustle for livelihood in casual employments to bring up my three-year-old baby girl,” she tells Nation at her home village in Kabati, Murang’a County.

She has fond memories of her late mum and very ill thoughts of men in their blanket legion.

“Though poor, my mother used to struggle for me and would pay my school fees. We stood together in all our tribulations…going to bed hungry in the belief that I would one day get employed and support her…” she reminisces. “When we buried my mother, a week after her death, life took some very strange turns for me…One of the people who wanted to turn me into his sex toy was my mother’s elder brother who was, and still is a pastor!” she says.

She conceded once, twice, thrice and the shame and guilt tore into her conscience.

“I dropped out of school since I was no longer the bubbling Shanice with hope for a better tomorrow. A girl who had forcibly surrendered her chastity to her dead mom’s brother only deserved to die and die I must,” she tells of how she attempted to commit suicide, but her grandmother rescued her.

To escape the shame, in December 2016, Shanice decided to leave the village for Thika town. “With no place to call home and with my hunger pangs to satiate, I became a sex worker. A naïve one at that who conceived in January 2017, and again the guts I had to keep on living left me,” she says.

This time round, she unsuccessfully attempted suicide for a second time.

“I attempted to throw myself on the way of a speeding lorry along Thika Road but the driver veered off the road, crashing on the guardrails. He lost his life,” she recalls.

On her way to take a jump into Chania River a week later, she was arrested for being a vagabond, arraigned and placed under the children’s department for care owing to her condition.

It is the department that solicited for her care at the Shallom Coventry where on October 12, 2017, she delivered her baby. “Seeing my small angel gave me hope…I felt the urge to raise my child and give her the best,” she says.

Today, Shanice is employed at a supermarket in Thika and is grateful that she has an opportunity to raise her daughter and bring meaning to her life.

“I choose to forgive, but not forget, what my uncle did to me,” she concludes.
