Malala: Luhyas will never follow confused leaders like Boni Khalwale



Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has hit out at local politicians drumming up support for Deputy President Willam Ruto in the region saying they are misleading the community.
The senator who was accompanied by other leaders from Kakamega warned the community against following confused and handout seekers like Boni Khalwale
“We cannot trust leaders like Boni Khalwale to lead us to a formidable coalition headed to 2022 yet they have created a habit of running to Ruto for financial help and humiliating our community,” said Malala.
The leaders have also told those seeking to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022 from the community to team up with presidential hopefuls from other communities to increase their chances of forming the next government.
The leaders said the community ought to identify a strong leader from the community that will lead any alliance talks.
“We must rally behind one of our own and we have given Musalia Mudavadi one last chance to show us the way forward and chose carefully on whom to work with,” said Malala.
He also cautioned Mudavadi against entering into an alliance with leaders who will jeopardise his chances of clinching the alliance flag.
Malala hinted on a possible coalition with Raila Odinga led ODM party as it was in 2017 General Election.
“We don’t want to be associated with leaders who have a contentious background and as ANC and the community we will make our wise decision even if it means working with Odinga again,” said Malala.
Navakholo MP Emmanuel Wangwe said the community should be ready to work with others provided the formula will win them the top leadership in the nation.
Wangwe urged Mudavadi, Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya to unite and front one of them who will then seek to get the community support.
“We have to show unity and ensure we can front one strong candidate and look for a serious winning formula ahead of 2022,” said Wangwe.
Kakamega Deputy Governor Philip Kutima who has been advocating for Oparanya’s candidature urged presidential hopefuls from the community to unite and back one of them.

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.
