Renowned Kikuyu performer Nebster Muhiko has passed away.

After a brief illness, Muhiko’s son claims that he passed away on October 17, 2022.

His followers and family are in sadness on the news of his departure.

Veteran of the Kikuyu music scene Muhiko was well-known for his contributions to the Kikuyu genre.

Many people were moved by his musical journey, and his influence on the business is still felt today.

Some of his famous songs include: Tinii Wonire, Chuku Chuku, Mulika Mwizi among others.

Muhiko’s close friend and gospel musician Muigai Wa Njoroge released a statement over his tragic death.

He disclosed that Muhiko had been struggling with hypertension for a considerable amount of time.

The artist was sent to the hospital on October 17, 2023, after experiencing a sharp increase in his blood pressure.

Sadly, he had a stroke that would eventually take his life when he got to the hospital.

Public figure Muhiko was a gifted artist with a unique sense of humor and infectious laughter, according to Muigai Wa Njoroge.

He narrated how Muhiko had been working hard in the studio, writing songs, and preparing music videos.

Muhiko once stated in an interview with Ala C that he hoped to be recognized as one of the musicians who helped and encouraged up-and-coming talent in the music business.

Fans and friends have been pouring in tributes, expressing their sorrow and honoring Muhiko’s contribution to the Kikuyu music scene.

Many people have sent their sympathies to his bereaved family at this trying moment.

Karangu Wa Muraya conveyed his condolences, saying, “Sad that our brother Muhiko Nebster has rested. To the family and friends, poleni sana.”

Zack Kinuthia paid tribute to Muhiko’s artistry and influence, stating, “He inspired me in my early 20s throughout to 30s with renditions that almost radicalized me to follow his career as a legendary Gîkùyû artist. His songs were deeply engaging mentally.”

Muchiri Wachira, while expressing his sorrow, also voiced concern about the lack of support for Muhiko during his illness, saying:

“Am saddened by the hypocrisy of Kikuyu Musicians. All along they never spoke about Muhiko Nebster Wa Wanjiru, his sickness nor even requested for him to be supported. Now that he is dead, they are all over showering him with praises and telling us how they knew him. Why dance on someone’s grave.”

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.
