Boni Khalwale is worried man a similar fate awaits him like in the cases of Senator Mutula Kilonzo and late Homa Bay senator Otieno Kajwang

Outspoken Kakamega senator Boni Khalwale has sensationally claimed his life is in danger.

Khalwale who is seeking to become the next Kakamega Governor on a FORD Kenya ticket on Sunday, June 18 2017 recorded a statement with the police after his life was allegedly threatened by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Taking to social media, Khalwale said he was forced to record a statement at the Kakamega Police Station after President Uhuru issued threats against him during a Jubilee Rally at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega. Boni Khalwale.

‘’I’ve this morning recorded a statement at Kakamega Police Station concerning Uhuru’s threats against me.’’Khalwale tweeted. 

The latest development was confirmed by Regional police commander Moses Ombati who said indeed Khalwale had recorded a statement and that the issue was under investigation.

‘’He was here in the morning with the allegations but we have just recorded him.We are waiting for more evidence before taking any action.

After getting details we shall act.’’Ombati said. President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday, June 17 2017 while in Kakamega accused the bullfighter of instigating discord in the region.

’You have leaders who come here pretending to be heroes but what they do is insult others instead of selling their policies to the voters…..tutamnyorosha.’’Said Uhuru during a Jubilee Rally at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega.

Music video by Kygo, Selena Gomez performing It Ain’t Me.

[Verse 1: Selena Gomez]
I had a dream
We were sipping whiskey neat
Highest floor, The Bowery
Nowhere’s high enough
Somewhere along the lines
We stopped seeing eye to eye
You were staying out all night
And I had enough

[Pre-Chorus: Selena Gomez]
No, I don’t wanna know
Where you been or where you’re goin’
But I know I won’t be home
And you’ll be on your own

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Who’s gonna walk you
Through the dark side of the morning?
Who’s gonna rock you
When the sun won’t let you sleep?
Who’s waking up to drive you home
When you’re drunk and all alone?
Who’s gonna walk you
Through the dark side of the morning?

[Drop: Selena Gomez & Kygo]
It ain’t me
The Bowery, whiskey neat…
It ain’t me
The Bowery, whiskey neat…
It ain’t me
The Bowery, whiskey neat…
It ain’t me
The Bowery, whiskey neat…
It ain’t me

[Verse 2: Selena Gomez]
I had a dream
We were back to seventeen
Summer nights and The Libertines
Never growing up
I’ll take with me
The polaroids and the memories
But you know I’m gonna leave
Behind the worst of us

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Who’s gonna walk you
Through the dark side of the morning?
Who’s gonna rock you
When the sun won’t let you sleep?
Who’s waking up to drive you home
When you’re drunk and all alone?
Who’s gonna walk you
Through the dark side of the morning?

[Drop: Selena Gomez & Kygo]
It ain’t me, no no
It ain’t me, no no
It ain’t me, no no
It ain’t me, no no
Who’s gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning?
It ain’t me
The Bowery, whiskey neat…
It ain’t me
The Bowery, whiskey neat…
It ain’t me
The Bowery, whiskey neat…

Outrage after Sunday Nation senior reporter is arrested for writing about Uhuru’s campaign funding

Walter-Menya
Nation Media Group journalist, Walter Menya

Nation Media Group journalist, Walter Menya is in police custody after writing a story implicating top public officers involved in a Jubilee campaign lobby.

According to Nation, the journalist has been arrested in connection with a story touching on the Friends of Jubilee Foundation.

The story which was published on Sunday, June 18 questioned the role of three top public officers in the campaign lobby registered as a foundation.

The foundation whose board members include top civil servants came into the limelight after organising a fundraiser which raised KSh 1 billion for Uhuru’s campaign.

In a statement released by the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet, Menya was arrested while sociliting for a bribe to kill the story.

“He has been demanding for money severally to kill the alleged story. At different times he has received a total of KSh35,000 through Mpesa and today he was arrested receiving Sh20,000,” said Boinnet. 

The foundation’s main objective is to ‘alleviate poverty, improve access to education, healthcare, water, sanitation, welfare services and campaign against alcohol and drug abuse in Kenya’ which is contrary to it’s current role. 

According to Menya’s story published by the Nation, the three public officers who sit on the foundation’s board are KRA Commissioner General John Njiraini, Energy PS Joseph Njoroge and Kenya Leather Development Council Board Titus Ibua.

The three are listed as board members and signatories to the foundation’s bank accounts, yet it is illegal for senior civil servants to participate in campaigns.

It is just days since the National Super Alliance (NASA) listed civil servants participating in partisan politics demanding for legal action to be taken against them.

Kalonzo must Revisit To Ensure a divided Wiper party doesn’t fell NASA – Bernard Kiala and Senator Johnson Muthama must be respected.

IMG_0121
Confused Wavinya Ndeti caught napping and now guilty of party hopping, cannot vie on Aug 8 – IEBC. Corruption is to blame. The lawyer added that having received Wiper’s Platinum Membership Certificate on April 24 when she entered into a Coalition Agreement “the conclusion is irresistible that at the time she was still a member of CCU party”

The National Super Alliance (NASA) is “national” and “super” largely because Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka agreed to be its candidate for Deputy President under ODM’s Raila Odinga. Raila and Kalonzo are now fused together like an electrical appliance. The two are conjoined – and any attempt to separate them will kill both. They will either go State House together, or live in the political wilderness apart like a Wildebeest.

On this note, since sidelining Bernard Kiala was part of bad politics in Ukambani, Kalonzo must now revisit the issue and endorse Benard Kiala because Embattled Wiper’s nominee for the Machakos Governor’s seat Wavinya Ndeti is guilty of party hopping, as IEBC insists. The National election body insists, she did not file her papers correctly, her case is likely to be dismissed and she will not have a chance to be on the ballot after the judge rules early or mid next week. (Read more )

That leave us with one question, are we going to leave the NASA slot FOR governor’s post vacant in the coming general elections after Wavinya is disqualified? My thinking is that, We should not. This is where Benard Kiala who is running as an independent comes in. Kalonzo needs to approach him and the larger Kamba society to agree to run as NASA candidate even though he is independent after Wavinya Ndeti’s candidacy is vacated due to willful misconduct involving corruption.

Kalonzo knows every blade of grass in the vast Ukambani region – where his base is concentrated – and other Wiper pockets around the country. As the captain of the Wiper ship, Kalonzo must stamp his authority on the party while being democratic and open including summoning Benard Kiala back to the fold. That’s the only way he remains a commanding asset – and not a liability – to NASA.

According to reknown political Professor Makau Mutua, “Machakos is ground zero for NASA and Kalonzo. Machakos is important for Kalonzo, Wiper, and more importantly NASA, for a different reason. Senator Johnstone Muthama – a man not known to mince his words – has lately had a restive relationship with Kalonzo. He won’t defend his senatorial seat and has threatened to quit Wiper altogether. Whatever the reasons – and we must remember Kalonzo and Mr Muthama go way back – the kerfuffle between them could be a deadly nail in NASA’s coffin. It’s not a secret Mr Muthama is Raila’s confidant. This should be an asset to NASA, not a liability.”  That’s why Kalonzo and Mr Muthama must genuinely bury their hatchet and invite Benard Kiala after Wavinya Ndeti’s appeal is dismissed.

Lastly, Kalonzo Musyoka must tame his ego and stop dominating his son Mr Kennedy Kalonzo to that East African General Assembly parliament in Arusha. Kalonzo needs to look at the best interest of all Kenyans and especially his base (wiper) not to be seen as promoting nepotism and corruption.  Kalonzo must make sure a divided Wiper doesn’t fell NASA to the ground and above all he must be seen as a positive leader who is not engaged in malfeasance at the expense of Kenya. Wiper, NASA’s strongest link, shouldn’t become its weakest link. Kalonzo needs to kill the mini-Jubilee insurrection in his backyard by creating a transparent nomination process without bribery. This is the only way Kalonzo and NASA family will succeed in Ukambani and Kenya. If he does not toe the line, he risks being like Ababu Namwamba of Busia County without money and followers.

Governor Alfred Mutua popularly known by nickname “Kavaluvu” seem to be taking advantage of NASA division in Ukambani. There are reports he has junks of cash to bribe unsuspecting voters.

Confused Wavinya Ndeti Caught napping – guilty of party hopping, cannot vie on Aug 8 – IEBC

Confused Wavinya Ndeti caught napping and now guilty of party hopping, cannot vie on Aug 8 – IEBC. Corruption is to blame. The lawyer added that having received Wiper’s Platinum Membership Certificate on April 24 when she entered into a Coalition Agreement “the conclusion is irresistible that at the time she was still a member of CCU”/FILE

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 16 – Embattled Wiper’s nominee for the Machakos Governor’s seat Wavinya Ndeti is guilty of party hopping, IEBC insists.

And as such, Judge George Odunga heard, she is not eligible to vie on any seat in the August 8 polls.

Lawyer Paul Nyamodi for the polls body Friday submitted that Ndeti is still a member of Chama Cha Uzalendo and that position has not changed.

According to Nyamodi, Ndeti is not a member of Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper following the list of party membership list forwarded to IEBC by March 27.

The lawyer added that having received Wiper’s Platinum Membership Certificate on April 24 when she entered into a Coalition Agreement “the conclusion is irresistible that at the time she was still a member of CCU”.

Arguing that whether or not she resigned from CCU on April 5 is not an issue, IEBC maintained that the same would only be effective “when it is received and delivered by the Registrar of Political Parties.”

Added Nyamodi “there is no evidence that the letter of resignation was delivered and received by the RPP as the law requires.”

Nyamodi further refuted claims by Ndeti that Wiper was not a party before the IEBC to defend its nominee.

“The party was indeed named as a respondent in the matter but it chose to ignore the proceedings,” Justice Odunga heard.

Ndeti is seeking to quash IEBC’s decision to revoke her nomination.

She has faulted the June 8 verdict arguing that it was reached without the electoral body carrying out a search at the Registrar of Political Parties to establish her political membership.

“The process was not fair since no search was conducted to ascertain that the applicant is a member of CCU,” lawyer Willis Ochieng submitted on behalf of Ndeti.

Judge Odunga was urged to find that petitioner Peter Kyalo Kyuli, who is a Machakos County MCA filed his complaint before the wrong forum to determine Ndeti’s political membership.

“The petitioner should have first contested the applicant’s party membership before the Political Parties Dispute Tribunal ,” added Ochieng.

The judge will deliver the verdict next Wednesday.

Deaths of Kajwang, Mutula, Muchai, Nyamu still a mystery

kajwang426112014
Siaya Senator James Orengo and his Machakos counterpart Johson Muthama leads other Members of Parliament to carry the casket of the late Homa Bay senator Otieno Kajwang from Nairobi Central SDA Church.

To date, investigations into the cause of the sudden death of senators Mutula Kilonzo (Makueni) in 2013, Otieno Kajwang (Homa Bay) that shocked the nation and beyond are yet to be made public.

Begging questions remain unanswered and Kenyans are still curious to know more about the circumstances that led to their death. Mutula died in April 2013, less than a month after he was sworn in as the first senator of Makueni.

He is reported to have slept and failed to wake up at his home bordering Maanzoni Lodge on Mombasa Road.

In March this year, a former personal assistant, Stella Mwendwa, told an inquiry the late Mutula had lost a lot of weight before his death.

“Kilonzo looked beaten health wise,” she said, adding she thought this was the result of vigorous campaigning in the run-up to that year’s March 4 election.

Mutula had served in former President Mwai Kibaki’s Cabinet as the minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs, and then Education minister. He had served as a minister for Nairobi Metropolitan Development.

Kajwang’ died at 11.34pm in November 2014 at Mater Hospital, Nairobi. He had been rushed after he complained of chest pains. If he were alive today, Kenyans would be enjoying his campaign antics.

Kabete MP George Muchai was shot dead in February 2015 on Kenyatta Avenue, Nairobi. The motive of the killing to date is not known.

He was killed alongside his driver and two bodyguards.

The cause of Gatundu South MP Joseph Nyamu’s death is still not clear. He is said to have collapsed and died in his bathroom in May 2014.

Ababu Namwamba’s Political career Ends on a sour note after undermining ODM to Jubilee in an Organized Scheme.

Ababu Namwamba jeered at Uhuruto campaign in Busia after engaging in a bribery scheme with Jubilee.

After having been bribed on various dates by the Jubilee regime to cause havoc in Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) in an organized scheme involving the jubilee regime, the goose appears to have been cooked finally. In a major embarrassment and the end of Ababu Namwamba’s political career, the residents of Busia denounced and refused to hear him in-front of the Kenyan President.
