Kalenjin man dumps wife to move in with female baboon



A young man in Elgeyo Marakwet County was jilted by his wife who carried their four children with her as she left her marital home when he decided to live with a monkey.

The man named the monkey Josephine Baboon Kibet and usually takes care of it as the two found a rare bond.

The man, Isaac Kibet, treats the monkey as his daughter.

The monkey follows him everywhere he goes, hanging on his shoulders all times.

“If you call it by its name, she responds,” Isaac stated,

The estranged man disclosed that he rescued the monkey which he found lying on his farm while young and was granted permission by the authorities to take care of it.

“If I had power, I would have taken it to school and even bought it uniform and a biker. The only problem is that the tail will be a distractor,” he disclosed.

“Whatever food I eat, so does the monkey. I at times boil and also warm its meat. I do not give it raw meat,” he added.

Area residents have been astounded by the duo’s bond, arguing that it was a rare sight as they have been used to rearing domestic animals.

“We rear livestock and they troll Kibet for raising a monkey,” one resident disclosed.

But the man, with his profound love for the monkey, argued that everyone had a choice to make in life and live by their own decisions as his desire is to be a wildlife officer.

He further disclosed that he at times employs someone to take care of the monkey whenever he visits areas that are prohibited to animals.

Research suggests that humans can form strong attachments to their pets, and at least some pets display attachment behaviors toward their human caretakers. In some cases, these bonds have been found to support or enhance the physical and emotional well-being of both species.
People can also become reliant on a pet’s unconditional love, companionship and interaction.

He is a very dangerous man! Sonko’s daughter accuses senator of attempting to kill her



Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip and Saumu Mbuvi, daughter of former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, have announced their separation following wrangles and disagreement.

The reports were fuelled by photos and videos of Senator Loitiptip hanging out with a female friend.

Saumu, on Instagram, announced that the two have separated, claiming that she has undergone domestic violence under Loitiptip.

“These are the things he did to me,” wrote Saumu, in one of her photos showing a swollen face and bruised lips.

“He almost killed me. I will forever fight for women to stand for their rights. Never allow a man to be violent to you.”

She also claimed that the senator had neglected their child, leaving Saumu as the primary caregiver.

Loitiptip told that Saumu shared her father’s traits and was suffering from bipolar disorder, threatening to expose her past to prove his claim.

The two have been dating for months and at one point planned to get married. However, Sonko’s daughter clarified that the two had split before officiating their union.

“Wedding date confirmed,” she captioned a picture of herself and the senator in June 2020.

Her previous relationship with businessman cum politician Ben Gatu also ended after she accused him of being violent.

US raises alarm over Covid-19 cases surge in Tanzania



The US government has revealed that there are significant cases of Covid-19 in Tanzania.

This is just a week after it advised its citizens against travelling to the East African country.

“The US Embassy is aware of a significant increase in the number of Covid-19 cases since January 2021,” the Embassy said.

In a Health alert, the US said the practice of Covid-19 mitigation and prevention measures remains limited.

The Tanzanian government has not released aggregate numbers on Covid-19 cases or deaths since April 2020.

“Healthcare facilities in Tanzania can become quickly overwhelmed in a healthcare crisis. Limited hospital capacity throughout Tanzania could result in life-threatening delays for emergency medical care,” US said.

The Department of State’s travel advisory level for Tanzania is Level 3.

The US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention says that travellers should avoid all travel to Tanzania.

The Embassy continues to recommend that all individuals take caution in day-to-day activities.

President John Magufuli assured the 58 million inhabitants that they need not worry about observing Covid-19 preventative measures.

Siwachii wezi! Uhuru vows not to leave the country to thieves in 2022



President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday made a surprising stop to lecture Nairobi residents after finishing his engagement at the National Cargo Deconsolidation Centre (NCDC-Nairobi).

The Head of State said he was angry at Nairobians for being against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill stating that the report has given Nairobi more constituencies.

“If we have a BBI that says the people of Nairobi will have more constituencies and if it’s bursaries a child in Mathare who today receives Ksh500, how will that child study up to university level,” President Kenyatta said.

“But there is another child who gets Ksh100,000 in Busury per year is that right?… BBI is not for helping Raila or Uhuru it is for you,” he continued.

Uhuru went on to disclose that he has no plans to rule after his term is over and his interest is in finishing the job that Kenyans elected him to do.
