The Media Council of Kenya is demanding action against Magoha’s bodyguard over alleged sexual assault on a journalist.

On Thursday, Kenyans shared a video on social media that showed journalists confronting the bodyguard of the CS.

A voice behind the camera accuses the man of grabbing a male journalist’s genitals and squeezing them.

The incident occurred during a routine visit by the CS to Kisumu’s Kosawa Primary School.

The CS had gone to inspect the desks in the school.

In a TV interview with Citizen TV, MCK CEO, David Omwoya said that the Council was speaking to relevant authorities to probe the matter and prosecute the bodyguard.

Omwoya called the incident embarrassing and extremely saddening.

A statement by Kisumu Journalist Network said that Nation Media Photojournalist, Ondari Ogega, accidentally bumped into the bodyguard.

He apologised, but the brute aide of the CS followed the journalist and squeezed his genitals.

He threatened to them do more harm outside the classroom.

The Council also said that the same man had also grabbed a female journalist, Viola Kosome, by her buttocks as he pushed her out of the way.

MCK demanded that the CS, Interior Minister, Fred Matiang’i and Police IG, to take action against the man.

Failure to do that, they said, would see the man continue with his bad habits not only against journalists but also other Kenyans.

CS Magoha is under increasing pressure following a video showing him insulting a junior officer in Uasin Gishu.

His bodyguard’s actions are unlikely to tilt the public opinion favourably in his favour though.

Journalists are often victims of assault whenever they go out to cover stories.

Just recently, police attacked an NTV photojournalist who had been recording him.

Journalists, usually at the frontline of many significant events, become easy targets for influential people eager to ‘prove’ their power.

Carolina Carlz and Mzungu hubby, Troy William had a candid interview done on Ebru TV about months ago. The detailed interview shed light on how they met and fell in love to a point of starting a family together.

Well, unlike most women dating Caucasian men these two did not meet on a dating app; but bumped into each other at Sarit center – and just like any other love story…the rest is history.

However their interview with Ebru TV may have left fans with the wrong impression about Carolina Carlz. As seen on the comment section it appears that most felt that the media personality came too strong; after asking her white man whether he would marry her.

Of course he has plans but since he did not reveal when. This however left Carolina looking like she was pushing him into marriage – but come on! Can’t a person have a sense of humor even when it comes to marriage? https://youtu.be/6m1IkOmUPZM

Kenyans attack

Well, there are those who had been waiting for such an opportunity in order to attack Carolina Carlz. From the comments on YouTube, clearly the fans left no stones unturned as they attacked the mother of one.

Probably the husband had no idea on how Kenyans react to such posts; hence their latest vblog where he issued an apology; for making his wife look bad and creating a platform for critics to attack her.

As seen on the video the Troy went on apologizing to his lovely wife; hence shutting down rumors claiming that his wife is clingy, pushy or desperate for marriage. It is no secret that they are different but at the end of the day; they still love each other.

Watch the video below.

Paul Walker’s heartbreaking autopsy and grim details that aroused daughter’s suspicions

Seven years ago today, Hollywood actor Paul Walker had enjoyed a fun-filled day with friends at a charity fundraiser in Los Angeles. Little did the Fast and Furious star know that when he agreed to take a spin in friend Roger Rodas’ 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, the ride would be his last.

The car ploughed into a concrete lamppost at high speed, tearing the vehicle almost in half and killing both Paul, 40, and Roger in an inferno of mangled wreckage. Helpless witnesses tried to extinguish the molten fireball that enveloped the car, but the flames could not be stopped. Given the horror of the crash, many believed father-of-one Paul must have been killed instantly.

But his autopsy revealed a heartbreaking fact – traces of soot were found in Paul’s windpipe, meaning he’d still been breathing as the fire raged. Furthermore, the report detailed how Paul’s body was so badly burned that he could only be identified by dental records and his charred organs were too damaged for donation. Meanwhile, Roger’s skull was fractured and the top part missing, leaving his brain exposed.

The coroner found no evidence of drink or drug use and recorded a verdict of death by “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries.” But Paul’s daughter Meadow didn’t agree and filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche, claiming her father initially survived the crash and could have escaped but was trapped by his seatbelt.

According to the lawsuit, which was obtained by TMZ and vigorously contested by Porsche, Paul was alive for one minute and 20 seconds after impact but couldn’t get out because the seatbelt “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis”.!

Lawyers claimed it had taken a whole minute for the fire to break out, giving Paul ample time to make his escape. They also alleged the car lacked sufficient door reinforcements and that manufacturers hadn’t used fuel lines that break free to prevent a fire in a crash.

The lawsuit claimed: “Absent these defects in the Porsche Carrera GT, Paul Walker would be alive today.”

But Porsche defended itself stating Paul was a “knowledgeable and sophisticated user” of the sports car and argued: “The perils, risk, and danger were open and obvious and known to him, and he chose to conduct himself in a manner so as to expose himself to such perils, dangers, and risks, thus assuming all the risks involved in using the vehicle.”

The battle was resolved in 2017 when the wrongful death lawsuit was withdrawn and a settlement reached although the terms have never been disclosed.
