Mara Heist whistle-blowers want state protection



Whistle-blowers in the Mara Heist expose which was documented by Citizen TV want the government and the witness protection agency to provide them with security.
According to Spencer Sankale, one of the whistleblowers, life has changed since the airing of the expose which attracted the attention of the whole country.
Spencer says there is intimidation he experienced at work and the trouble of the publicity that came with the expose.
“I have been at work actually. But a lot of things have changed in my life and I can’t walk the way I used to walk. There is always that threat, the intimidation is there at work mostly. And it’s mostly a security issue for me whenever I am out and the other thing is that I walk in the malls and most of the people actually recognise me. They call me by my name, mostly Spencer, mostly Mara Heist. So it’s a whole new thing,” Spencer told Citizen TV.
The narrative was almost similar even to the witnesses and whistleblowers who had requested their identity to be hidden.
The acting deputy finance officer at Maasai Mara University Wilberforce Kipruto Serem who had applied for State Protection as a witness in the case claimed there was little that had been done to protect them as their identity were later on discovered.
“We did apply but so far nothing has been done by the witness protection agency. We have not received any sort of protection from the government or the witness protection agency,” Serem stated.
Mara Heist investigative report unearthed gross corruption cases and abuse of office by top officials at Maasai Mara University.

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.

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.
