“Wakati niliitwa State House ndio nilijua kukalia kiti ya president sio mchezo” – Bahati

Msanii wa nyimbo za injili Bahati alieleza jinsi alijipata matatani mwaka uliopita wakati alipomuamsha rais Uhuru Kenyatta na kukalia kiti chake.

Hilo lilitokea wakati wa kampeini za uchaguzi katika uga wa Kasarani alipokuwa akiwatumbuiza zaidi ya wakenya elfu sitini.

Wengi walimkashifu Bahati kwa tendo hilo huku wengine wakisema iliashiria kuwa amepindua serikali na yeye ndiye rais, hata kama aliketi kwa sekunde kadhaa.

‘Nili double tap naye akani like,’ Diana Marua afichua alivyomtongoza Bahati

Wakenya waligawanyika kuhusu hilo na wengine walimtetea wakisema hakuwa na nia yoyote mbaya kwani alikuwa katika shughuli ya utumbuizaji.

Bahati kwa upande wake alieleza kuwa hakuona jambo kuu ila maoni ya watu ndio yalifanya ajue kuwa alikuwa amefanya jambo kuu.

Akizungumza na Massawe Japanni, mwimbaji huyo wa ‘Mama’ alisimulia jinsi alishtuka alipoitwa katika ikulu ya rais kufuatia tendo hilo.

Soma usimulizi wake.

By the way nimeona nikama naweza kuwa president some day. Actually nili realize nimekalia hiyo kiti after nimeona kwa news after the story ilianza kuwa big. The moment niliitwa hadi state house ndio nilijua this is serious.

The Kenyan president wanted to meet the ghetto president.

But I think pia ilikuwa a very big sign juu ilikuwa imeanza ku get out of hand and actually that is the best favor that the president ashawahi nifanyia, juu aliifanya ikakaa normal. Juu ilikuwa imeanza kuleta a lot of stories and negativity.

Ni kipi anaeza sema kuwa ni ufanisi mkuu maishani mwake tangia alipoanza usanii?

Of course sitting on the president’s seat and of course when I started my record label, EMB record label, that was a game changer for me because Kenyans hatujakuwa tuki believe in record labels and that is something that is killing the industry.

Tuna need kitu inaweza chukua young people from the streets huko chini watu wako na gifts na wawa support and when I started that, it was a fulfillment in my career and right now I am looking forward to filling Thika stadium on 31st December as EMB Jesus party.

Catholic priest shot dead, cash stolen in Kinoo

Eyewitness James Waweru said the thugs opened the car, removed a bag and took a mobile phone of his passenger before feeing.

Mason who was building a house next to the scene, said they were attracted by the noise coming from the scene

Another eyewitness Kariuki Njoka said he was driving when he heard a gunshot. He saw two motorcycles moving very fast towards him.

“When they passed, I saw people running at a car which was in the middle of the road. We realised it was a priest. We removed him and rushed him to Kikuyu hospital but he was no more,” Njoka said.

Nyanje told churches, residents and business people to ask for police escort when they are taking money to the bank.

He said police patrol;s will be increased during the festive season.

Four British girls and their teacher are sexually assaulted at gunpoint during school trip to Ghana

Four British schoolgirls and their teacher were held at gunpoint as they were sexually assaulted, with their assailant shooting their security in Ghana.

The victims – aged 16 and 17 – were staying at walled guesthouses as part of a group of ten on a charity mission to the capital, Accra.

The attacker used his rifle to shoot and wound the security guard at the hostel after he tried to intervene.

According to the Sun, the teens and their school teacher were flown home on Sunday and were treated at a British hospital after the ordeal on Saturday night.

The pupils were paying £1,200 each to take part in their school’s partnership with a West African charity.

They had travelled there to have an ‘opportunity to experience life in a developing country,’ the newspaper said.

The accommodation was close to the beach and the teens were staying in rooms of up to six at the site, where there was also a caretaker and security team.

The Foreign Office confirmed the ‘incident’ in the greater Accra area and said it was working with local authorities, The Sun reported.

Around 90,000 Britons travel to Ghana every year and the Foreign Office advises that violent crime is a possibility, particularity at Christmas time.

Teach nursery school kids in Kimeru, Kiraitu Murungi tells ECDE teachers

Meru governor Kiraitu Murungi has challenged ECDE teachers in the county that a good number of young children in the county do not know Kimeru language as they are not taught in nursery schools.

He said children in ECDE should be taught basic Kimeru language to be able to have roots and be able to relate with grandparents, parents and villages where they come from.

He said they will partner with Kenya Literature Bureau to do a book on basic Kimeru for nursery school kids.

“There are many stories like Kamankura, Kiundu and the feast, how Meru originated from Mboa which are basic Kimeru stories but our children do not know and can’t relate to them. They only know about about other people’s culture which they see on television,” Kiraitu said.

Governor Kiraitu Murungi said teachers in the county should be the foundation of education and should be taken seriously.

“for very many years ECDE was not recognized officially by government as an important component in structure of our education it was only recognized in 2010. Am so impressed that many teachers have now upgraded their education they now have diplomas and degrees but am urging them to have more education for instance you cannot teach ECDE class in America unless you have degree in child psychology,” Murungi said.

African countries with the highest population

Having a high population at times becomes difficult for a government if the budget is not well planned. This is because with an increase in population, a lot of commodities and public sectors have to be enhanced in order to be able to deal with the increase in population.

Failure to do so may result to increase in crime rates, unemployment, increase in poverty and poor health care.

Certain countries in Africa have managed to do well even though their population is high.

PATANISHO: Mke wangu huleta wanaume nikiondoka

Bwana Joseph alituma ujumbe akiomba apatanishwe na mkewe ambaye walikosana baada ya uchaguzi wa pili, tarehe 26, Oktoba.

PATANISHO: Bibi yangu alinifumania na mpango wa kando

 

“Nilikuwa nimesimamia uchaguzi wa kwanza, kuna mwanadada alinipigia simu kutoka Nairobi akisema kuna kazi lakini ni kama tapeli. Sasa nikasafiri hadi Nairobi lakini IEBC walinitumia ujumbe na ikabidi nirudi kusmamia uchaguzi wa pili. Sasa nikaona nitafika nyumbani mapema nikasimama Nakuru ku watch ball na nikafika nyumbani kitu saa mbili.” Alieleza Joseph.

Wakati nilifika kwa nyumba mke wangu alinishika mkono na kunipeleka nje ya gate akisema kuwa kuna kesi iko kwa chifu na anataka niende nikasuluhishe. Nikalalamika kuwa ni usiku sana na nimechoka, nikakasirika na nikamzaba kofi.

Alikasirika akakimbia na kujifungia kwa nyumba. Sasa jirani yangu akaniambia hatafungua kwani kuna mwanaume amekuwa akiletwa kwangu kila nikitoka. Ndugu zake walimjaribu lakini hakufungua.

Baada ya kwenda training ya IEBC siku iliyofuata nikapata wameondoka na ilibidi nimerudi Nakuru.

PATANISHO: Nilifisia mwanamke mwingine bibi akaniacha

Tangia siku hiyo hajawahi muona mkewe lakini huwa wanazungumza kuhusu mambo ya karo ya wanao wawili.

Alipopigiwa simu bi Anne alisema kuwa mumewe anafaa kumtafuta ila sio kumpigia simu kupitia redio.

Hata hivyo, bi Anne alisema ako tayari kurudiana na bwana Joseph akisema amekuwa akingoja hilo.

Pata uhondo kamili.

More managers who had not surrendered to police have done so this morning increasing to almost 20 those from NHIF and five from KPC.

In the NHIF case, 21 suspects are expected to take plea over allegations that Sh1billion was lost through the Jambo Pay service.

The suspects are to answer to seven charges related to deception, fraud and abuse of office.

They will also face charges of engaging in a project without prior planning, willful failure to comply with the law relating to procurement and abuse of office.

They are also accused of willful failure to comply with the law relating to management of public funds, false accounting by a public officer, deceiving a principal and fraudulent acquisition of public property.

The officials include CEO Geoffrey Mwangi, former CEO Simeon Kirgotty, Ruth Sidoi (acting corporate secretary), Mudzo Ndzili (NHIF board member) and Danson Muchemi and his M/S Webtribe Limited. The NHIF group was held at the Gigiri police cells.
