Try your luck in 2075, Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen tells Baringo Senator Gideon Moi that Deputy President William Ruto shall takeover presidency in 2022.

Murkomen urged Moi to shelve his ambitions for presidency and Support Ruto, saying Kenyans have already decided he will take over from Uhuru Kenyatta.

“I don’t want to promise Senator Gideon that things will work for him even in 2035 because it will be too soon, he must wait longer until 2075” he said.

He was accompanied by some 15 jubilee leaders during homecoming ceremony of Baringo County Member of Parliament (MP) Joshua Kandie at Kapsogo grounds last Saturday.

The ceremony was graced by Machakos County Governor who doubles Maendeo Chap Chap (MCC) party leader Doctor Alfred Mutua.

Murkomen sentiments were backed by Ainobkoi MP William Chepkut who said “Ruto is edging the door of state house and he is being supported by many Kenyans, I am sure he will win as the fifth president” said.

Murkomen further said their underground 2022 political campaigns shall not hinder their leadership roles.

In his prediction, former Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny offered Dr. Mutua Prime Minister (PM) position incase Ruto wins presidency.

However, Mutua declined the verbal offer hinting that he has already made talks with Senator Moi to merge the independence Kanu and his MCC party to battle down Ruto in 2022.

“Kenyans are already tired of leadership of choosing who should be who, they have already mastered on who is capable of serving them better to improve on their economy” said Mutua.

He was backed by KANU leaders, Tiaty MP William Kamket, Baringo Woman Representative Gladwell Cheruiyot and Joshua Kandie (MP Baringo Central).

Mutua lauded people of Baringo central for electing Kandie on MCC. He promised to dig 1000 toilets and four boreholes at Kiptagich, Kipsoit, Kapsogo and Kabasis villages.

“MCC party is only accepting leaders who talk less politics and work more for the people and so electing Kandie is clear indicator people trust the party” he said.



“Prostitution is a crime and an offence against humanity,”Pope Francis says

Pope Francis has asked forgiveness for all Christians who buy sex from women, saying men who frequent prostitutes are criminals with a ‘sick mentality’ who think that women exist to be exploited.

‘This isn’t making love. This is torturing a woman. Let’s not confuse the terms,’ Francis insisted.

The pope made the comments during an intimate, four-hour-long listening session with 300 young people who were invited by the Vatican to Rome.

The purpose of the session was to help church leaders learn about young people’s attitudes towards the Catholic Church.

Blessing Okoedion, who was forced into prostitution but escaped, asked Francis how the church could allow Catholics to be clients for the many Nigerian women in Italy who – like her – were victims of human trafficking.

‘I ask myself, and I ask you: Is the male chauvinistic church able to truthfully ask itself about this high demand by clients?’ she asked.

Francis, who has made the fight against human trafficking and modern-day sex slaves a priority of his pontificate, urged young people to take up the fight against trafficking and forced prostitution.

‘This is one of the battles that I ask you young people to do, for the dignity of women,’ he said.

The pontiff said forced prostitution was born of a ‘sick mentality’ that no form of feminism has managed to rid from society, one that thinks that ‘women are to be exploited.’

Speaking directly to Okoedion, he concluded: ‘I want to take advantage of this moment, because you talked about baptized and Christians, to ask your forgiveness, from society and all the Catholics who do this criminal act.’

Monday’s meeting was preparation for a big synod of bishops in October on helping young people find their vocations in life.


Mapenzi Sumu: Man Jumps Into A Dam After Splitting With His Wife

Residents of Kinungi village in Naivasha are in shock after a middle aged man committed suicide by jumping in a dam after separating with his wife.

In a case of love gone sour, 25 year old George Kuria jumped into the flooded dam after promising residents that he would commit an incident that would be highlighted in the media.

The deceased had on several occasions threatened to kill his wife and later commit suicide owing to differences that elders had tried to solve without success.

According to Nakuru County Assembly Majority Leader Stanley Karanja, the youthful man had in the past tried to commit suicide twice by drinking lethal chemicals only to be saved by neighbors.

“In this case, he took advantage of the dam that was filled up to jump on it and this got everyone by surprise”, said Karanja who is also Naivasha East MCA.

He added that such cases were on the increase and called on young people with marital related issues to seek advice from counselors and church leaders with a view to solving them.

A relative Kimani Kuria said the wife had run from their matrimonial home three days prior to the incident at the dam.

“She sought refuge at a friend’s house after numerous threats from her estranged husband and this was a wise decision otherwise we would be talking of another thing,” he said.

So Sad!!Death of the last male Northern White Rhino

The world’s last northern male white rhino has died at 45-years. Sudan, the male white rhino was being taken care of by Ol Pejeta conservancy along side two other last northern female white rhinos.

“It is with great sadness that Ol Pejeta Conservancy and the Dvůr Králové Zoo announce that Sudan, the world’s last male northern white rhino, age 45, died at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya on March 19, 2018,” Ol Pejeta said in a statement.

At the end of 2017, Sudan had been suffering from an infection in his right hind leg, and though his condition had since improved, the infection returned, and Sudan spent two weeks in his pen where he was being treated from a deep wound on his right hind leg.

According to Wikipedia, In December 2009, Sudan was moved from the Dvůr Králové Zoo (Czech Republic) to the Ol Pejeta conservancy  for a “Last Chance To Survive” breeding program.

Attempts of getting Sudan to mate naturally failed.

Northern White Rhinos are guarded twenty four hours a day at the Conservancy to protect them from poaching, which is a major problem for rhinos. The protection includes horn-imbibed transmitters, watchtowers, fences, drones, guard dogs, and trained armed guards around the clock.

The conservancy said Sudan during his final years came back to Africa and stole the heart of many with his dignity and strength.

“We on Ol Pejeta are all saddened by Sudan’s death. He was a great ambassador for his species and will be remembered for the work he did to raise awareness globally of the plight facing not only rhinos but also the many thousands of other species facing extinction.”

Liverpool will not sell superstar Salah even if Real Madrid come calling

Liverpool have no intention of selling Mohamed Salah this summer and will robustly turn away any unwanted interest in their talisman.

The Egypt international’s incredible debut season at Anfield has catapulted him into the top bracket of players and he has been linked at varying times with Real Madrid, ever since head coach Zinedine Zidane was asked about what he thought of Salah at the Club World Cup last December.

Salah signed a four-year contract, worth more than £90,000 per week, when he moved to Liverpool last summer and Real would have no hesitation in offering him dramatically increased terms if they were given any encouragement that there was an opportunity to buy the 25-year-old.

But Liverpool, who lost Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in the January, are adamant that Salah is critical to everything they are trying to achieve and there is no figure that would persuade them to let a player whom they signed for £39.6million leave.

Any enquiries for Salah, who has scored 36 goals and is a contender to win the PFA Player of the Year award, will be dealt with firmly and emphatically told he is not for sale.

It is Jurgen Klopp’s intention to build on what he already has at Anfield – Napoli midfielder Jorginho would be on his wish list – and his only interest is recruiting aggressively.

He said before Liverpool faced Manchester United earlier this month that he will not flinch if it comes to spending big to get the players he wants.
