Lonyangapuo dismisses census results, claims KNBS hid their people



West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo has joined leaders dismissing the 2019 National Census results.
He claimed the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KBNS) had hidden their people.
He said the population outcome in his county as ‘strange,’ saying the numbers are not adding up.
The county has the highest birth rate in the country with a fertility rate of 7.2 per cent.
Nearly each woman has seven to eight children, the governor reiterated.
Lonyangapuo they expected 830,000 and 1.2 million people in the county because it has been leading in high birth rate in the last eight years.
“We expected the numbers to be higher. Where did they hide our people? Who killed our people? And who is making our mothers not give birth?” the governor said.
Lonyangapuo reiterated that in 2009, Pokot North sub County had 156,011 people and that it was interesting to note that the results released in 2019 count indicated only 134,485 people.
“Does is means Pokot North women are barren or have refused to give birth for ten years and men are dry? Only few people have died,” said Lonyangapuo.
Lonyangapuo cited that North Pokot Sub County has more than 200,000 women and 60,000 children.
The report by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) indicated that West Pokot has a population of 621,241 people.
The county boss on Saturday attended the graduation ceremony at the West Pokot Teachers College after returning from the US.

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.

“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.

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.
