Waiguru, Raila to campaign for Imran in Kibra race

Published

on

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru on Sunday joined ODM leader Raila Odinga to campaign for Imran Okoth ahead of Thursday’s by-election.
Raila has pitched in the city constituency for the last three days, meeting a host of communities.
On Saturday, Deputy President William Ruto said Raila is under siege and is looking for support from elsewhere.
“If someone calls for support in his bedroom, knows things are thick,” he said while campaigning for Jubilee candidate Macdonald Mariga.
Waiguru’s presence at the final day campaigns is yet another strong indication of a looming alliance ahead of 2022 polls.
Also present in ODM campaigns on Sunday is Makueni Governor Prof Kivutha Kibwana, who has been at loggerheads with Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
On Saturday, Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu and her Machakos counterpart Alfred Mutua met Raila before joining Kibra polls.
“We are here because we want Uhuru and Raila to show us the way in 2022 and nobody will come between them,” said Ngilu.
“Raila has done a lot for this country and he is the only person who will fight for the people of Kenya.”
Mutua said his party is in consultations with ODM on the possibility of fielding candidates without much animosity to secure a majority in Parliament.
“My party will consult with ODM on how we will field candidates in the 2022 General Election so that we get the numbers to change this country,” he said.
ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna has said that there is a clear indication that NASA is dead.
“We are counting our friends in Kibra and after the polls, new alliances will be forged,” he said.

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 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.

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.
