MP Jalango hospitalised following basketball injury



Phelix Odiwuor, better known by his stage name Jalang’o, is a well-known radio host and a member of parliament for Langata.

On September 27, he injured his leg while playing basketball. The multi-talented entertainer and politician has been temporarily immobilized.

Jalang’o revealed the incident’s specifics and referred to it as the “first injury of the season,” implying that his passion for basketball had presented him with an unforeseen difficulty.

He was immediately sent to Nairobi Hospital after suffering the accident, where doctors ran an MRI to determine the full extent of the damage.

Jalang’o recently shared a video of himself in a hospital bed on social media along with a note indicating that he had been admitted.

In the post, he tagged celebrity doctor and rapper Dr Reighn but did not disclose an update on his hospital.

His message read, “Day two in the hospital.”

Jalang’o’s hospitalisation comes as a surprise to many, as he has often emphasised his robust health and infrequent visits to healthcare facilities.

In a previous radio interview, he candidly stated, “I think the last time I was in the hospital was when I had dislocated my arm in the gym.”

During that same interview, Jalang’o shared his belief that his health is a result of multiple factors. He explained, “Sometimes I just go for check-ups, but for things like, ‘Oh my God, I’m drunk, give me medicine,’ I don’t do that. I am so lucky.”

Jalang’o responded that a number of variables contributed to his good health when asked what the key to it was.

“Yes, God is number one. Number two is being cautious not to expose myself to diseases and also the way I was built,” he responded, adding that he has managed to stay resilient even in the face of common health challenges like malaria.

We are not taxing till numbers – KRA



We are not taxing till numbers – KRA

The public is being cautioned by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) about a widely shared post on the internet that purports to show that the taxman is now looking into Till numbers.

KRA made it clear in an official statement on X that these allegations are wholly untrue and advised the public to be caution when it comes to possible fraud.

“Not true. Till numbers are NOT subject to taxation, and KRA does not collect any such taxes. Beware of fraudsters purporting to do any of the above.”

The revenue authority directed citizens to verify KRA staff by dialling *572# or through their official website

In September, the government proposed amending the Data Protection Act of 2019 to exclude KRA from its regulations, aiming to facilitate access to information.

The proposed change was to empower the tax agency to retrieve data from Kenyan citizens, including real-time details of financial transactions conducted through mobile money.

Tragic explosion in Mexico leaves Kenyan man in a coma



A Kenyan man residing in Mexico is currently fighting for his life following a devastating explosion.

The precise whereabouts and origin of the blast are presently undisclosed, along with any knowledge of additional casualties.

It has been reported that the man, identified as Francis Kamau Chege from Kiambu County, Kenya, is currently in an induced coma. Regrettably, he was left unattended at the medical facility for several days, as his relatives were unaware of the incident until they unexpectedly came across pleas for aid on social media.

Chege’s girlfriend, who initially shared the details on the internet, had sought assistance to notify his parents and other kin.

Chege’s family from Githunguri, Kiambu County has expressed their deep appreciation to the online community for spreading the important news.

They are relieved that his severe burn injuries have promptly been brought to their attention. Meanwhile, they have reached out to his girlfriend and the relevant authorities as efforts are being made to contact officials in Washington for urgent assistance.

Mexico does not have a Kenyan embassy and instead depends on the embassy located in the capital of the United States. The family is thankful for the swift dissemination of this vital information. Activist Simon Mwangi draws attention to a series of explosions that have taken place in Mexico recently.

These explosions have been triggered by gas-related incidents and natural disasters caused by volcanic activity.

“Thank you for speedy sharing, the father and brother have reached out. We have notified the contacts in Washington for a quick response. Be blessed good people,” activist Simon Mwangi wrote.
