Moses Kuria takes President Uhuru head on over BBI

Published

on

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has laughed off President Uhuru Kenyatta remarks that the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) would curb post-election violence in Kenya.
Kuria through social media argued that he had read the BBI report and did not find any recommendation that punished leaders who allegedly caused violence in the previous elections.
He went on to state that he would visit an optician to re-read the BBI report once again, in what was seemingly an intentional mockery of Kenyatta.
“I have just finished reading the BBI report for myself. I was particularly looking to see why Kenyans fight after every election. This is undoubtedly the biggest win for the BBI and the handshake. I was hoping to see what BBI recommends we do with Moi (retired President Daniel Moi) for igniting violence in 1992 and 1997.
“I was hoping to see how Kenya will honour Uhuru Kenyatta for accepting the 2002 results like a Democrat, a gentleman and a patriot thus avoiding post-election violence. I was hoping to see what BBI recommends we do with Raila Odinga for refusing to go to court in 2007 thus causing two junior officers Kenyatta and William Ruto to be taken to the ICC,” Kuria wondered through his Facebook page.
He went on to state his disappointment after finding out that Odinga’s 2017 theatrics went unnoticed in the BBI.
“I was hoping the BBI will cite Raila Odinga for refusing to take part in the October 26, 2017 repeat elections and thus contributing to the death of Baby Pendo. I am sure all these things are there. I will visit Optica (a firm that sells spectacles) today and re-read the BBI report again,” Kuria trolled the head of state.
President Uhuru had earlier lashed out at Ruto’s allies in Kikuyu dialect, for what he described as participating in early campaigns and changing tune against BBI. He further warned that his silence should not be taken for weakness.
“My silence makes them think that I am dumb. Even before the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report was released, they were traversing the country while engaging in politics. When I keep quiet, they think I know nothing, but when the time comes we will know what to do.

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

Published

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 Kenyans.co.ke 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

Published

on

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

Published

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.
