Published

A sports journalist has denied receiving Sh100,000 or any other facilitation from the National Olympics Committee of Kenya during the Rio 2016 Olympics.
Citizen TV’s Waihiga Mwaura said he only learnt when the list came out that he was part of those earmarked for the cash without having made any request to the committee.
“I learnt that my name was included in the list without my knowledge, this is when I decided to pursue and report the story on Citizen TV,” said Mwaura while testifying before magistrate Elizabeth Osoro at Milimani courts.
He said his accommodation and the entire trip was catered for by his employer and at no time did they seek any support from Nock.
“My accommodation was catered for by my employer and the same extended to my colleagues accompanying me,” Mwaura said.
Former Sports CS Hassan Wario and other sports officials were charged with the Sh55 million scandal and abuse of office over management of Team Kenya in preparations for the Rio trip.
They were accused of illegally approving payment over Sh15,907,500 as allowances to members of the Kenyan team.

Kidis the Jembe quits music after losing millions of shillings

Coast-based musician Kidis the Jembe has announced that he has quit music for good after failing to make it in the industry in over a decade he had been in the game.

A frustrated Kidis, who burst into limelight with his hit banger Kamua Leo several years back, claims he has lost millions of shillings in the music industry, something that has prompted him to quit.

The singer also claims he lost a whopping Sh6.5 million on the song Mshamba which was used as the signature tune for TV comedy program ‘Mshamba’ which aired on a local TV station.

Kidis says he has never been paid the loyalty for the song and his effort to get his dues have been futile. He also claims Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) owe him Sh7.5 million in loyalties.

Kidis made the revelations during a phone conversation with Milele FM radio presenter Chris The Baise. “Sanaa ya Kenya iko na uhuni sana, sasa naibiwa pesa hadi nilishindwa kulipa nyumba shilingi elfu kumi. Niambie vipi Kidis ashindwe kulipa elfu kumi?” he posed.

This is not the first time Kidis has shared his frustrations with the Kenyan music industry. Back in 2014, he became the first artiste to ditch Grandpa Records that was huge back then. He quit after a bitter fallout with the owner of the label Refigah.

Kidis claimed he never met his expectation since joining the label which signed him after he dropped Kamua Leo. However Refigah denied falling out with Kidis, stating that his contract with the now dead label, had come to an end.

Popular fitness trainer Frankie Kiarie better known as Frankie JustGymIt recently broke down responding to questions posed by his followers pertaining to his children. In the video dubbed ‘Deadbeat Dad’ posted on his YouTube channel, Frank read out questions asked by netizens.

One question took him aback after one user asked why he was a deadbeat dad to his two children with Maureen Waititu.  In response, Frankie googled the meaning of a deadbeat dad stating that he took care of his children and was always there for them.

“Each week I send money for my children’s upkeep, actually let me be candid and say I send Sh6, 000 every week for their upkeep. Personally, I spend like maybe Sh2, 500 on myself and I’m a fully grown man.

“I pay for school fees. So with school fees, Lexi goes to Montessori, he loves it there. It’s a private school, the fees there is not cheap. Let me just be candid, the school fees is about Sh150, 000 per term. Paying is not easy and there was a reason he went there which I’m not going to touch on,” he said.

The fitness trainer cautioned netizens against labeling individuals and tasked them to do their research.

Asked on whether he left Maureen to be with Corazon Kwamboka, Frankie explained that things between him and Maureen were not okay and it is after they broke up that he met his current girlfriend.

“I didn’t leave Maureen for Kwamboka. Maureen and I broke up then I met Kwamboka. It wasn’t planned that I am going to get rid of this beautiful thing that we had going on and go start another beautiful thing that we have now going on. That wasn’t the thought process. We had our differences and issues and it’s something that people need to understand.
