Ruto thanked Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, his Kandara counterpart Alice Wahome and speaker Justin Muturi, and Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru whom Ruto said missed the running post by a whiskerfor making it to the final shortlist, saying that they will work together to strengthen his government.

Kithure Kindiki was in the runners up position.

The meeting had on Saturday failed to reach an agreement on who was best suited to become Dr. Ruto’s running mate choice, between Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua and Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki.

Ruto’s presidential secretariat spokesperson Hussein Mohamed addressed the media from Ruto’s Karen residence at midnight and assured members of the press that the running mate choice will be unveiled on Sunday May 15, 2022.

He had been expected to make the announcement at 11am, but it was later changed to 1pm, 3pm. But it did not happen.

Sources indicate that Ruto was all set to name Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki as his running mate until Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua insisted it must be him.

In Mt Kenya, supporters of Gachagua in Mathira held demonstrations in town insisting that he must be named to deputise Ruto in the presidential election set for August 9.

Trans Nzoia County Governor hopeful George Natembeya has unveiled his choice for deputy ahead of the Monday May 16, 2022 deadline set by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

The former Rift Valley Regional Commissioner on Friday unveiled Mrs. Philemona Bineah Kapkor as his choice for deputy governor at an event held at Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K) headquarters located at Chui House, Nairobi.

Philomena is a banker and Natembeya believes her experience and expertise will help the Tans Nzoia County grow should he clinch the county’s topmost seat.

Natembeya’s main opponent is Kiminini Member of Parliament Chris Wamalwa who is vying on a Ford Kenya ticket.

Migori gubernatorial candidate John Pesa unveiled veteran journalist Matiko Bohoko as his running mate.

Kisii gubernatorial candidate Sam Ongeri unveiled Engineer Josiah Maaga as his ticket-mate.

Busia gubernatorial hopeful Moses settled on Tom Ipomai as his running mate.

Defence Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa who is the DAP-K party patron used the event’s opportunity to tell ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula that the power-sharing deal they signed with DP William Ruto is a scam.

Both Mudavadi and Wetangula have been promised 30 per cent of the government should Ruto win the August 9 presidential election.

However, the promise comes with a rider that the two politicians must deliver at least 70 per cent of the Western Kenya votes. That is around 1.8 million votes.

Should they succeed in that quest, and Ruto wins the presidency, then Mudavadi will be appointed the Prime Cabinet Secretary and Wetangula the Speaker of the National Assembly.

There was drama in Othaya during the funeral service of the late third President of Kenya Emilio Mwai Kibaki when a mourner tried to run towards the podium while Deputy President William Ruto was giving his speech.

A video that has since gone viral shows a woman running from where the mourners had been seated at a tent trying to make her way to the podium.

However, she was stopped by the security and whisked away before she could make her way to the podium where DP Ruto was standing.

At the time, the second in command had paused his speech to acknowledge leaders who were present at the event but had not received a chance to address the mourners.

This is not however the first drama to be witnessed at Kibaki’s funeral.

The man who caused drama outside Parliament buildings on Tuesday claiming to be the late President Mwai Kibaki’s grandson on Friday begged to address the nation during the funeral service held at Nyayo Stadium.

It is not clear yet how Allan Makhana breached security and got to the podium as Archbishop Anthony Muheria made an announcement.

He could be heard whispering that he needed just two minutes to make ‘a few remarks’.

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga has his own style of mourning high-profile people in the country. Or is he?

Well, if you reflect at all the funerals of the high-profile people Kenya has lost, you must have noticed a black flywhisk that the former Prime Minister carries around and waves in the air several times whenever he is viewing the deceased’s body.

When former Vice President Michael Kijana Wamalwa died in the year 2003, Raila arrived in Kitale, Trans Nzoia County donning luo traditional regalia, armed with a spear and his magical black flywhisk.

In 2014 during the funeral of the then Homa Bay County Senator Otieno Kajwang, Raila lifted his black flywhisk.

We saw it again in 2020 during the funeral of the second president of the Republic of Kenya Mzee Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi.

When Raila arrived at Parliament buildings to view the late President Moi’s body, he ceremoniously pulled out his black flywhisk, removed his cowboy hat and looked at the body for a few seconds before waving the flywhisk in slow motion six times over the body.

And have you seen the same happen during the late President Emilio Mwai Kibaki’s funeral? Well, when the ODM leader arrived at Nyayo National Stadium on Friday April 29, 2022, he was carrying his black flywhisk.

On Saturday April 30, 2022, Raila landed at Othaya Boys High School in Othaya in the company of his wife Mama Ida Odinga while carrying the black flywhisk in his hands.

Just before they left Othaya Boys High School for the funeral service of the late President Mwai Kibaki at his Othaya home, Raila waved his flywhisk in the air befotre entering his car that took him to the event.

But what is the meaning of all these?

According to the Luo Council of Elders chairperson Willis Otondi who spoke to the media in 2020 during the funeral of the late President Moi, the whisk is only given to selected elders in the community.

Known is Orengo in the luo language, the whisk is a symbol of peace and whenver Raila lifts it at the funerals, he calls for calmness.

The elder explained that the orengo is a status symbol and only a certain cadre of elders are allowed to carry it.

For instance, the whisk is believed to have magical power that is transferred to whoever inherits it.

Whenever it is lifted like Raila does at the funerals of the high-profile people, it shows respect from the entire generation.

The late Otieno Kajwang also used to carry the whisk around and it was believed to be having some magical powers.

Kenyan companies linked to land sales in Kiambu County are again embroiled in controversy after a flagship property was accused of fraudulent dealings.

In court filings, Finsco Africa and Heri Homes are accused of selling land over which the heirs of a coffee farming dynasty are feuding.

The 200-acre parcel, marketed as Legacy Ridges, sits on Ruiru-Kamiti Road and is advertised as “affordability meets lifestyle”, with properties starting at Kshs 8.4 million.

Also known as Wamikey Estate Limited, the family property is allegedly being illegally sold off by Virginia Waithera, in collusion with Finsco Africa and Heri Homes, without the authorisation of other family members.

Waithera is the second wife of prominent Kiambu businessman David Ndua Thuo (deceased).

The children of Thuo’s first marriage to Alice Njeri moved to court to stop Waithera from managing Wamikey “without transparency to the rest of the family to the extent that she has sold and/or transferred shares and/or tampered with the registration of the property.”

“Waithera has entered into an illegal joint venture agreement with developers known as Heri Homes, Finsco Africa, who are developing the property belonging to the estate and have named the development Legacy Ridges,” said Godfrey Alfred Hinga, a son of the deceased businessman.

Following the launch of the real estate project at an event on 22 February 2022, Higa says he wrote to Waithera, Heri Homes and Finsco Africa, but they failed to respond to the letter.

In court filings, Hinga states that the land allegedly misappropriated for Legacy Ridges has a value of more than KES 1 billion and that the Wamikey Estate “as a whole risks being lost to scammers.”

“Virginia Waithera does not have any higher right than the other beneficiaries of the estate,” he states.
The court case risks snarling the Legacy Ridges development.

The woes of Finsco Africa and Heri Homes stretch across Kiambu County to another development, Riverline Ridges, now stalled due to court allegations of a fraud that pits heirs of Bernard Njinu Kiarie, a powerful Moi-era police chief, against each other.

According to court filings, Fisnco and Heri Homes have not purchased the 428 acres but are already selling the land to unsuspecting buyers without disclosing the lack of clear title.

Just days after businessman Suleiman Shahbal bowed out of the Mombasa gubernatorial race, details of how President Uhuru’s hand played a role in the decision have emerged.

Shahbal last week shocked many when he announced that he had dropped his governor bid in support of Mvita MP Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir.

While making the announcement, he said that he had reached the decision after thoughtful consideration of the needs and aspirations of the people of Mombasa, long deliberations with ODM party leader Raila Odinga and advice from the chair of Azimio la Umoja Coalition, President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Details have, however, emerged that Shahbal had rejected calls to step down in favor of Abdulswamad.

This is even after Raila made several attempts to convince him, including chairing a meeting with him in Nairobi.

According to sources that spoke to one of the leading local dailies, Raila made a phone call to President Kenyatta to seek his intervention.

It is President Kenyatta together with Raila who then reportedly told Shahbal that his hardline stance had created divisions among ODM supporters.

They urged him to step down given that three opinion polls had shown Nassir was ahead.

Shahbal found himself between the sitting president and the possibly incoming president, leaving him with no option.

Meanwhile, Shahbal has accepted an offer to join Raila’s Presidential campaign team.

Deputy President William Ruto has been handed a major boost in his quest to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in the upcoming August general elections.

This is after 30 elected Members of Kiambu County Assembly ditched President Kenyatta’s Jubilee party for his United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

Ruto through his official social media handles on Saturday March 12, 2022 said that the 30 MCAs believe that there should be a new paradigm shift to build Kenya’s economy from the bottom.

“The Kenya Kwanza team is growing bigger each day. 30 elected MCAs from Kiambu County have quit Jubilee and joined UDA. They believe that there should be a new paradigm shift to build our economy from the bottom. Karibuni Hustler Nation!” Ruto tweeted.

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga has apologised over his ‘madoadoa’ statement that he made ni Wajir County on Wednesday.

Speaking on Friday during his tour of Kisumu County, Raila clarified his statement that has caused mixed reactions from Kenyans, claiming that he meant voters shouldn’t elect non-Azimio La Umoja leaders.

The former Prime Minister said no Kenyan should be discriminated based on ethnicity.

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) had earlier today summoned Raila over the remarks that were deemed to have fuelled up ethnic tensions ahead of the August polls.

Odinga made the utterances on March 9, 2022 when he took his Azimio la Umoja campaigns to Wajir County as he continues to drum up support for his presidential bid.

“In his remarks, he mentioned the term ‘Madoadoa’ which is considered a hate speech term in Kenya,” NCIC’s Chairman Samuel Kobia said in a statement.

Kobia added that the commission, under his watch, will continue to advocate for good relations, harmony and peaceful co-existence of persons of different ethnic and racial communities while discouraging ethnic discrimination in the August General elections.

In a reaction to NCIC summon, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen raised questions in the manner in which the ODM leader’s case is being handled.

Murkomen now wants the DCI to immediately arrest Raila and put him in custody.

Murkomen in a tweet appeared to suggest that Raila should be treated the same way as Meru Senator Mithika Linturi who was arrested and arraigned for his ‘madoadoa’ remark he made in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu.

At the same time, he poked holes in the NCIC letter and questioned when he will present himself for the summon.

Bishop Margaret Wanjiru has dropped her quest to become the next Nairobi County Governor in the upcoming August general elections.

Instead, the former Starehe MP has opted for the Nairobi Senate seat.

She will now have to square it out with Karen Nyamu in the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party primaries.

A leaked UDA party receipt that has gone viral shows that the Jesus Is Alive Ministries bishop had paid a total sum of Kshs. 125,000 as a nomination fee for Nairobi County senator.

Early February, the Nairobi gubermnatorial hopeful Senator Johnson Sakaja and Margaret Wanjiru brought a ‘Kenya Kwanza’ whistle-stop rally at the City Park to a halt after Sakaja’s supporters reportedly booed the woman of the cloth.

Bishop Wanjiru accused Sakaja of inciting his followers against her.

Sakaja did not address the allegations, but appealed to the crowd to allow all the candidates an opportunity to sell their agenda.

Wanjiru’s withdrawal from the gubernatorial race might have been influenced by coming together of the ANC, Ford Kenya and UDA parties to form Kenya Kwanza Alliance, which may prefer Sakaja.

Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula has sent a piece of advice to Wiper Movement leader Kalonzo Musyoka.

Through his official Twitter account, the Bungoma senator who is also a Kenya Kwanza Alliance co-principal told Kalonzo not to allow political turncoats to shape his destiny.

Wetang’ula advised the former Vice President to think carefully before entering any coaltion deal with ODM leader Raila Odinga.

He cited the history of betrayal and deceit, plus the arrogance being displayed as reasons why Kalonzo should turn down any calls for him to board the Azimio La Umoja train.

“My dear brother and friend Vp Kalonzo don’t allow political turncoats to shape your destiny. With the history of betrayal and deceit, plus the arrogance being displayed, think carefully before you enter the tent,” tweeted Wetang’ula.

Kalonzo has remained indecisive on whether to go alone, join Deputy President William Ruto’s side or Raila’s side.

Wetang’ula’s advice comes just hours after Kalonzo hosted his OKA counterpart Gideon Moi and Jimmy Kibaki who is the party leader of the New Democrats Party.

Kanu party leader Gideon Moi earlier today denied the media reports that the party was planning to ditch One Kenya Alliance (OKA) for Azimio la Umoja.

In a statement, the Kanu chairman said the party is firmly in OKA.

He has further said that OKA was united as a coalition, “and we have taken a common position that our talks with the Azimio and any other parties, must be structured, open and honest if we are to make progress.”

Gideon Moi has said that sentiments by Party Secretary-General Nick Salat, including the declaration that the party will attend the Azimio coalition NDC on Saturday, were his personal opinions.

Heads of government bodies are gradually attempting to extend their tenures when not working with sidekicks to get ‘some work’ once they get out of office.

Remember the case of Ezekiel Mutua when he was CEO at Kenya Film and Classification Board?

The man Kenyans nicknamed ‘Deputy Jesus Christ’ for playing moral police with content on television, allegedly tried arm-twisting the Board to extend his term in 2021?

In a letter to ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru in July 2021, the State Corporations Advisory Committee (SCAC) said Mutua, had planned to extend his term in office, to serve a third term at the helm of KFCB.

He however dismissed the allegation terming it as sideshows. “I’m concentrating on my responsibility of protecting children from harmful content and I have no time for sideshows,” Mutua said, then.

More than that, the ‘Deputy Jesus’ was also accused by the Auditor General Nancy Gathungu of overpaying his salary by Sh3.1 million in 2020 without approval from the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC).

A similar script could be playing out at the Kenya Year Book Editorial Board where the leadership of CEO, Edward Mwasi, is being questioned in some quarters.

Allegations against Mwasi include planning to plant stooges like Peter Okong’o as his possible successor.

Okong’o, who was laid off from mainstream media houses like The Standard over issues related to performance, was hired while another employee (with a Masters Degree) was laid off and has since taken legal action.

Other disgruntled parties who have threatened legal action include contracted writers like Francis Mwaniki, previously an experienced Revise Editor at the Daily Nation.

Mwaniki engaged lawyers over payments for editorial work done for the Kenya Year Book.

Furthermore,Mwasi hoodwinked Information Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru into appointing Wilson Kipkazi “a perennial member of many government boards” into the Board of Kenya Year Book despite having served his full term!

The move was illegal, and George Opiyo, a former hired insider has threatened to take legal action over the matter.

Other murmurs of discontent revolve around arm-twisting the procurement department into favouring specific service providers in publishing books.

Then there are some money-wasting and kickback-inspired projects meant to showcase milestones of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Big 4 Agenda.

But the books being churned out by Kenya Year Book feature scanty research and are little more than an “internet compilation of other government reports.”

A source from the ministry of ICT, Innovation and Youth Affairs said; “Mwasi has created power structures within and outside the organization through which he fights employees and consultants perceived to know the end result of his machinations. Moreover, the Year Book has nothing other than some compilation of other government reports.”

The quality of content in this year’s Kenya Year Book, for one, has been singled out as being below par.

The 2021 Kenya Year Book, which is meant to summarize progress and opportunities in different key sectors of our country, is nothing but 300 pages of photos most of them downloaded from the internet!

It compares poorly to other Kenya Year Books before he took over as CEO.

Basically, the 2021 Kenya Year Book is nothing but a series of photos with deep captions!

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have been urged to bar political candidates accused of corruption from vying.

Taking to his official Twitter account Sunday morning, activist Boniface Mwangi asked Kenyans with any idea on how to ensure the corrupt candidates are blocked to came forth and let him know.

He went further to ask Kenyans to start a public petition asking presidential candidates not give their party tickets to criminals such as drug dealers, thieves and murderers.

“If anyone has any idea how we can ensure @EACCKenya@IEBCKenya@DCI_Kenya don’t clear candidates accused of corruption, let me know. Someone should also start a public petition asking presidential candidates not give their party tickets to drug dealers, thieves and murderers,” he posted.

The call comes barely 5 months to the August general elections.

Gatundu South Member of Parliament and the Chama Cha Kazi Party leader Moses Kuria has opened opened up that he is headed to Deputy President William Ruto’s camp.

Taking to his official Facebook account this morning, the lawmaker said his party and 21 other political parties are in early talks with Kenya Kwanza Alliance ahead of the August polls.

Kuria noted that the talks will lead to a very broad based grand coalition that will deliver the nation to peace and prosperity.

“This is to inform Kenyans that Chama Cha Kazi Party and 21 other political parties are in early talks with the Kenya Kwanza Alliance that will lead to a very broad based grand coalition that will deliver the nation to peace and prosperity. Details to follow,” he posted.

This comes just days after he said that the Azimio la Umoja camp is not an option for him.

His party has scheduled its National Delegates Conference on March 15.

Deputy President William Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) is set to have his NDC on the same date.

Moses Kuria’s NDC will be held at the Bomas of Kenya while DP Ruto’s camp will hold theirs at the Kasarani indoors arena.

The Kenya Kwanza Alliance so far has UDA, the Moses Wetang’ula-led Ford Kenya and the Musalia Mudavadi-led Amani National Congress (ANC) as affiliate parties.

Do you think Moses Kuria’s entrant will re-energize the Kenya Kwanza Alliance?
