Zambian president praises Duterte as a complete man and names a public road after him

0

President Edgar Lungu of the Republic of Zambia has named a public road in Lusaka after President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines. Edgar Lungu has showered praises on Duterte describing him as a complete man whom all leaders should emulate.

“President Duterte of the Philippines is a great man that means a lot to African nations. The road joining Lusaka town will be named after him as a way of honouring the right people in our society” President Edgar Lungu said.

Edgar Lungu says his relationship with the Philippines is growing each day as a result of President Duterte’s welcoming policies.He reveals that Zambia had been in the dark with the Philippines for a very long period of time because past leaders did not extend their hands towards Africa.

The Zambian leader has also stated that President Duterte’s war against drugs is something the world should support. He points out several cases of a youthful generation that has been spoiled by illegal drugs.

“It is so absurd for anyone to criticize the Philippines President for fighting the drug monster in his country. We will not sit back and watch our people being milked dry by drug cartels.Zambia needs to welcome any move barring drugs from circulating in the country anyhow” Lungu explained.

The Zambian  President is set to visit the Philippines early next month in an effort to boost trade relations between the two countries. African countries have shown interests of partnering with Asian countries unlike in the past where the West had dominated everything in the black continent.China is the leading trade giant in Africa.

Aisha Jumwa distressed as Ruto ignores her calls

0

Malindi Member of Parliament, Aisha Jumwa now says Ruto’s close allies are misleading him to ignore her calls.The Member of parliament has accused Oscar Sudi and Kipchumba Murkomen of sabotaging her political relationship with the Deputy President.

“Ruto can make a good President if only tames his close allies.Kipchumba Murkomen and Oscar Sudi are fighting me because of my influence” Aisha Jumwa said in a statement.

Jumwa has urged Malindi voters to reject the opposition after she was expelled from the party. She has blamed Raila Odinga for allowing members of the opposition to humiliate her in the party.

“It is absurd that a party which claims to be democratic in the country cannot tolerate freedom of speech. I was expelled from ODM just because I spoke my mind and i have no apology to make” the MP added.

Political analysts in the country have interpreted Aisha Jumwa’s exit from ODM differently. Professor Manyora says the Malindi Member of Parliament has dug her political grave as she will not  control the masses in her constituency without the help of the opposition.

“Malindi has for a long time been an opposition stronghold. No way Jumwa can withstand the political pressure in the constituency if she maintains working with the Deputy president” Manyora explains.

Political analyst Kisiangani says ODM’s move to expel Jumwa is suicidal.He urges that the Malindi voters will lose trust in Raila Odinga for allowing ODM to expel Aisha Jumwa. Kisiangani further says Jumwa’s expulsion from ODM gives Deputy President, William Ruto an avenue to win many votes in the opposition’s stronghold.

Museveni urges Bobi Wine to retire from politics or emulate Kenya’s Raila

0

Ugandan President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has urged members of the opposition in Uganda to stop divisive politics.Speaking in Kampala today, Museveni has linked Bobi Wine to the instability experienced in various parts of the country.

“The opposition believes that everything is solved through violence. Bobi Wine should retire from active politics if he is not sincere his useless struggle” Museveni said.

The Ugandan President has advised members of the opposition to emulate from the opposition chief in Kenya who willingly met president Uhuru Kenyatta for a handshake. Museveni says elections should not destroy the existing peace in any country.

“Election is just a process that comes and go.You cannot fight a government through street noise” Museveni added.Museveni has threatened to bring politicians who incite members of the public before justice.

Recently, members of the opposition in Uganda threatened to oust President Museveni accusing him of dictatorship in the country. Ugandan detectives acted by arresting eight members of the opposition.

Museveni in a statement challenged the opposition to use guerilla warfare to overthrow him.”I came into power through the hard way. Anyone dreaming of being President in Uganda has to use the nearby forest” he quipped.

Quest for State House has left William Ruto isolated

An intense succession war is tearing through ruling party Jubilee and isolating Deputy President William Ruto from some of his top allies and defenders.

The tussle pits those seeking to stay on President Uhuru Kenyatta’s good side against those who want the party to confirm that the DP will be their presidential candidate in the next General Election.

A Central Kenya lawmaker who has been angling to be DP’s running mate in the 2022 polls told the Saturday Nation that Dr Ruto had asked them to assume “a low profile for the time being.”

SUCCESSOR

And now after President Kenyatta read the riot act to Jubilee luminaries who included the House Majority leaders Kipchumba Murkomen (Senate), Aden Duale (National Assembly), and Majority Whip Susan Kihika (Senate) and her National Assembly counterpart Ben Washiali, all perceived close Ruto allies, even the courageous ones may have to scamper for safety.

Former Jubilee party vice chairman David Murathe’s outbursts that the DP should not succeed President Kenyatta — and the failure by the President to defend his assistant — has caused some luminaries who were about to join the DP to believe Dr Ruto may not be the President’s favoured successor.

Among the leaders DP Ruto was looking forward to receiving in his camp are Governors Amason Kingi (Kilifi), Josephat Nanok (Turkana), Kiraitu Murungi (Meru), Anne Waiguru (Kirinyaga) and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula. They were to form his core team as he reached out to more pointmen across the country.

Similarly, some like Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya, who was a dyed-in-the-wool supporter of the Deputy President, has suddenly gone silent amid reports of a fallout over the chairmanship of the Council of Governors.  In a deal hammered by Mr Ruto in 2017, Mr Mvurya was to take over the council in June 2018. It did not happen and instead, his Kakamega counterpart Wycliffe Oparanya emerged the winner during the election held last week.

OFF GUARD

Former Mombasa senator Omar Hassan Omar is no longer seen regularly in Mr Ruto’s company, while Dr Paul Otuoma took up a government job offered by people close to the President.

In Western Kenya, where the DP had received a major boost after the endorsement of former Kakamega senator Boni Khalwale early in the year, things have gone silent.

In Dr Ruto’s own backyard of Uasin Gishu, Governor Jackson Mandago has gone quiet. Being a second term governor in the DP’s stronghold, one would expect him to lead from the front. However, it is thought he has never forgiven the DP for what some say is his preference for Mr Bundotich Kiprop alias Buzeki in the gubernatorial polls in 2017.

Political analyst Martin Andati says the DP’s political star, which was on the rise a while ago, has dipped considerably since the beginning of the year. “He cuts a forlorn image,” he said yesterday.

“We have seen a DP struggling to be part of the Presidency yet he is part of it. Very weighty decisions have been made by the President but he has not been involved,” he added, alluding to this week’s publication of the Executive Order No 1 of 2019, which appeared to have caught his team off guard.

The DP was also absent from a Friday morning meeting where the President met the entire security machinery which includes police commanders and Provincial administration.

“A strong message is sent when you are not part of such a gathering. Clearly things are not right for you.”

BROMANCE

Mr Andati takes the example of the decision by the Deputy President to take to Twitter on Wednesday to reinforce the executive order that elevated Interior CS Dr Fred Matiang’i to de facto prime minister.

“Why would he go out to reinforce what the President said? Why (should) the President’s word be reinforced?,” Mr Andati said.

Majority leader Aden Duale, a man who has in the past vowed that he could take a bullet for DP Ruto, recently declared that it was time to observe some silence.

Meanwhile, the chemistry of the earlier “bromance” between the President and his deputy was missing from photographs taken after a luncheon the President hosted at a Mombasa restaurant on Wednesday.

Former State House Director Denis Itumbi, who operates from the DP’s office, took to his Twitter to tellingly state: “President Kenyatta had a meeting with DP Ruto and House leadership in Mombasa. He bought his Deputy lunch and then took him to a popular spot in Mombasa. Photos were taken. The President did all that in public, but well….” he said.

Judiciary under siege: Senator Murkomen says attack unfair

0

The Judiciary has lately been under siege, over alleged collusion with corruption masterminds to defeat justice.

This even as investigative agencies continue to accuse some Judges and Magistrates of dancing to the tune of corruption big players, through what they termed as ‘ridiculous orders’.

Critics of the Judiciary also took to social media, in a well calculated campaign, to demonize what they say was ‘massaging of suspects’ in the corridors of justice.

With the Judiciary seen as the biggest stumbling block in the war against graft and misuse of public resources, Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and former Judicial Service Commission member Ahmednassir Abdullahi have now called for respect and support of the institution in a bid to dispense justice.

“I want to urge my friends, let us not shift blame to the Judiciary for our inefficiencies. I had a problem with the judiciary some time, but when I came to my conscience, I realized that it is important to defend the Judiciary to perform independently,” said Murkomen.

Part of the accusations against the Judiciary is issuance of orders barring the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) from investigating some corruption suspects or releasing suspects on what has been termed lenient bail terms that do not deter theft of public resources or other criminal acts.

“You must always defend an independent and free Judiciary because the day powerful individuals and institutions are after you, only the Judiciary will defend you. If you have a problem with an individual Judge, deal with it, but don’t bastardise a whole institution,” said Murkomen.

On his part, Abdullahi defended the Judges and Magistrates against accusation of short circuiting the fight against corruption challenging the executive as well as Parliament to deal with looting of public resources at the source.

Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has asked the investigative agencies to present water tight evidence in court and nail graft suspects.

Murkomen Asks Ruto To Quit Jubilee

0

NAIROBI- A group of Rift Valley MPs led by Elgeyo Marakwet Senator have asked  Deputy President William Ruto to walk out of the ruling Jubilee Party and chart his own political way.

According to the MPs, the elevation of Fred Matiangi was a slap on his face and he should quit the party.

The revelations of the appeal were seen in a leaked WhatsApp group conversation. The group has a membership of lawmakers from the Rift Valley region.

“It is clear that Dp is receiving a raw deal. This is not what we expected and it is time for us to ship out and chart our own way” one of the MPs wrote.

It is believed that the plan of a press conference by the legislators was canceled on the last minute after the Dp advised them to hold their horses.

“We have been told to hold our horses a little bit as other options are being pursued, ” said a vocal MP from Rift in a text response to our inquiries.

The Vocal Mp added that there is a unanimous agreement of the existence of a major problem in Government that should be addressed before it explodes.

“We need time to consult further on the matter. We will advise accordingly,” read the message.

A top Jubilee leader who is very close to the Deputy President confirmed that there has been little and sometimes no conversation between the President and his Deputy spelling doom for the fabric that holds together the Nation.

On Wednesday, the two leaders met in Mombasa, a meeting that insiders say was part of the efforts to iron out some of the differences.

After the Mombasa meeting, Ruto is reported to have told his brigade to calm down as there was nothing to worry about.

The Dp used his Twitter account to instruct all Government officials to switch to the new reporting structure given by the President.

Facebook to integrate WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger

0

Facebook plans to integrate its messaging services on Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

While all three will remain stand-alone apps, at a much deeper level they will be linked so messages can travel between the different services.

Facebook told the BBC it was at the start of a “long process”.

The plan was first reported in the New York Times and is believed to be a personal project of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Once complete, the merger would mean that a Facebook user could communicate directly with someone who only has a WhatsApp account. This is currently impossible as the applications have no common core.

The work to merge the three elements has already begun, reported the NYT, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 or early next year.

Presentational grey line

What is Facebook’s plan?

By Chris Fox, technology reporter

Facebook probably didn’t want to talk about this in the middle of a privacy scandal, but its hand was forced by insiders talking to the New York Times.

Until now, WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger have been run as separate and competing products.

Integrating the messaging parts might simplify Facebook’s work. It wouldn’t need to develop competing versions of new features, such as Stories, which all three apps have added with inconsistent results.

Logos for WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram
Image captionWhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram are run as competitors

Cross-platform messaging may also lead the way for businesses on one platform to message potential customers on another.

And it might make it easier for Facebook to share data across the three platforms, to help its targeted advertising efforts.

But bigger still: it makes Facebook’s suite of apps a much tighter, interwoven collection of services. That could make the key parts of Facebook’s empire more difficult to break up and spin off, if governments and regulators decide that is necessary.

Presentational grey line

Shared data

Mr Zuckerberg is reportedly pushing the integration plan to make its trinity of services more useful and increase the amount of time people spend on them.

By effectively joining all its users into one massive group Facebook could compete more effectively with Google’s messaging services and Apple’s iMessage, suggested Makena Kelly on tech news site The Verge.

“We want to build the best messaging experiences we can; and people want messaging to be fast, simple, reliable and private,” said Facebook in a statement.

“We’re working on making more of our messaging products end-to-end encrypted and considering ways to make it easier to reach friends and family across networks,” it added.

The statement said there was a lot of “discussion and debate” about how the system would eventually work.

Linking the three systems marks a significant change at Facebook as before now it has let Instagram and WhatsApp operate as largely independent companies.

The NYT claimed that Mr Zuckerberg’s championing of the plan to connect the messaging system had caused “internal strife”. It was part of the reason that the founders of both Instagram and WhatsApp left last year.

The decision comes as Facebook faces repeated investigations and criticisms over the way it has handled and safeguarded user data.

Comprehensively linking user data at a fundamental level may prompt regulators to take another look at its data handling practices.

The UK’s Information Commissioner has already conducted investigations into how much data is shared between WhatsApp and Facebook.

CS Wamalwa accused of foul play in late Kijana Wamalwa’s property row

0

Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa is embroiled in an inheritance tussle over former Vice President Kijana Wamalwa’s estate.

Two of Kijana Wamalwa’s kin, born of the late Yvonne Wamalwa, are accusing the Cabinet Secretary of teaming up with their relatives to dethrone them from their father’s estate.

The situation was further exacerbated by the passing on of their mother Yvonne Wamalwa in January 2018.

The matter that is now in court has already forced Kijana Wamalwa’s last born daughter, Michelle Wamalwa, out of school for over one year.

” If you want to continue with school… If you want food, then sell the house,” Michelle claims is the response she always gets.

According to the two, since the passing on of the former vice president, the late Yvonne Wamalwa struggled to access her medical cover even when she battled cancer and she couldn’t access her pension.

All these frozen by court injunctions instituted by relatives who are demanding a piece of the cake.

Unable to access their parents’ benefits given the numerous injunctions, as if that was not enough, an injunction has now been placed on their Karen family home.

“All I did was to be born in the family…Its no like a job application where you have to send it in,” lamented Michelle.

“This is not a plea for money or financial aid, it is almost a plea to be left alone,” said Duke Mboya- Kijana Wamalwa’s son.

In an affidavit filed in court the duo have also accused their step sister of scheming to remove their late mother and themselves from managing Kijana Wamalwa’s property just six months after the passing on of Yvonne Wamalwa.

“The people who fighting against us are extremely influential and respected, they are on TV every day with the President or the Deputy President” said Duke Mboya.

Efforts to reach CS Wamalwa for a comment proved futile as his phone was off most of the evening.

Why Former Central maragoli MCA Abdalla Otiende Chogo is currently on the run

0

Former Central Maragoli MCA Abdalla Otiende Chogo is currently on the run trying to escape the long hand of the law. Thursday night at around 10 pm, police officers raided Chogo’s home accompanied by Wamuluma lugaga and kegoye subchiefs who were baying for his blood. However, Chogo was nowhere to be found since he was tipped off of the arrest, running through his banana plantation and vanishing through the riverine forest.

This comes after a series of scandalous events that unfolded following a promiscuous affair with a minor, a 14-year-old form 2 pupil who is also pregnant for Chogo. On the day a couple was caught stuck in Mbale, Chogo was also caught by his wife having sex with the minor in their matrimonial home. The story went underground for a while but in the meantime, the parents of the minor took their child for pregnancy tests which came out positive. Chogo has impregnated the minor.

This angered the parents who confiscated the phone Chogo had bought for the little girl to cut off communication with the sex pest as they planned for the next course of action. It has also turned out that the small girl was not attending school, on the contrary, Chogo would call her on the phone he bought for her after his wife left for work. The girl would then come to Chogo’s home, lying to the parents that she’s in school. Chogo would then have explosive unprotected sex with the small girl.

As we speak, nobody knows the whereabouts of  Chogo. This is just part of the sexual scandals with minors that are haunting Chogo. The community should youth leaders have said they will rise up and condemn the rotten leaders of today who are ruining the leaders of tomorrow.

Uncircumcised boys may have foreskin problems- Study

When parents choose not to circumcise baby boys, some of the children may later need surgery to address foreskin problems, a Danish study suggests.

Doctors often leave the decision about circumcision up to parents because health benefits such as reduced risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections aren’t sufficient to recommend universal adoption of this practice.

The risk of complications for newborn circumcision is also low, and the most common problem is light bleeding around the foreskin incision.

Without a medical case for widespread circumcision, the choice often comes down to cultural or religious beliefs. It is a common religious rite among Jews and Muslims.

In Denmark, where circumcision is rare, parents still need to consider the possibility that around 5 percent of boys may have foreskin problems requiring treatment and a third of these may need foreskin surgery for medical reasons, researchers report in the journal Pediatrics.

“Circumcision should be performed at any age if a chronic foreskin inflammation is suspected and when foreskin retraction is not possible around puberty,” said study co-author Dr. Jorgen Thorup of the University of Copenhagen.

At birth, boys have a hood of skin called the foreskin covering the head of the penis, or glans. During circumcision, the foreskin is surgically removed, exposing the end of the penis. When parents choose to do this, the procedure is usually done within a week or two of birth, often before babies go home from the hospital.

To assess the health reasons that may lead to foreskin surgery, Thorup and co-author Dr. Ida Sneppen, also of the University of Copenhagen, examined medical records for 181 boys who had procedures in Denmark in 2014.

They excluded boys who had circumcisions for nonmedical reasons or procedures to correct complications from these operations. They also left out boys who had a birth defect known as hypospadias, which causes the urethra to form abnormally with an opening for urine anywhere from just below the end of the penis to the scrotum.

Boys who did have foreskin surgery in the study were around 10 years old on average.

Overall, the cumulative risk of undergoing foreskin operations by age 18 was 1.7 percent, the study found.

Forty of the patients had what’s known as balanitis xerotica obliterans (BXO), or chronic inflammation of the foreskin.

Most of the boys who had surgery – 95 percent – had a condition known as phimosis, or an inability to retract the foreskin. Babies are born with a tight foreskin, but it typically loosens over time. If it doesn’t, boys can have bleeding, scarring, infections or difficulty with urination.

The remaining 5 percent of those who had surgery had a condition known as frenulum breve, when the elastic band of tissue under the glans penis that connects to the foreskin and helps it retract over the glans is too short and causes problems during an erection.

To fix medical problems, 44 boys had circumcisions and 137 patients had foreskin-preserving procedures.

While most boys won’t have these problems, the complications are common enough that doctors should discuss them when counseling parents about newborn circumcision, the authors conclude.

They also caution that the rates of problems needing surgery in countries where infant circumcision is more common may be different from those in Denmark where it is rare.

Even though many parents will decide on circumcision based on cultural and religious beliefs, they should also understand that the medical evidence to date on the procedure is mixed, Dr. Andrew Freedman, a pediatric urologist at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles writes in an accompanying editorial.

“What this study does is ask the question as to the likelihood a child that is not circumcised at birth will go on to need a circumcision for well described medical reasons during their childhood,” Freedman told Reuters Health by email.

“In the non-newborn there are many conditions for which circumcision would be an appropriate treatment,” Freedman added.

A man who died and came back to life after a massive cardiac arrest has painted vivid pictures of what he saw in the ‘afterlife’.

Royal Shakespeare Company actor Shiv Grewal, 60 , is holding an exhibition of his artwork – which captures what he believes he saw when the lights went out.

The actor had just finished on an RSC production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, in which he was playing Don Pedro, when he went into cardiac arrest at home, after dining out with his wife Alison, 50.

Shiv, of Peckham, south east London, recalled how he was technically dead for seven minutes, as paramedics fought to revive him, using CPR, saying: “I knew, somehow, that I was dead.

He says he saw Duterte alongside with Angels dancing in heaven. In his revelation, he says that very few people are in heaven. When asked any other key figure he saw there he said None.

Kipchumba Murkomen recalls his memories back at the University of Nairobi.The Elgeyo Marakwet senator describes campus life as a journey for the fittest.

“Before i joined The University of Nairobi Christian union, i was a lost sheep that hovered in the city anyhow” the senator explains. The Elgeyo Marakwet Senator urges parents and members of the clergy to educate the young generation on the importance of being morally upright.

“During my Egypt days,i realized that city girls are endangering the lives of many young men.I never laid a virgin during the sinful days” Murkomen said in a statement.

The majority leader in the senate has blamed the management of various universities in the countries for the steady rise in cases of immortality amongst students.

“If only VCs were competent enough,cases of girls parting with their virginity at a sorry age would cease” Murkomen added.

“When we were admitted at the university,our halls of residence had boxes of condoms at every entrance. That was uncalled for as it only encouraged the energetic souls to indulge in fornication” he quipped.

Murkomen has promised to consult religious leaders in the country in an effort to shape the society.

Kenyan Professor Insane handwriting

0

Penmanship is not just how you handle a pen and paper, taking down a couple of notes, and calling it a day. To many, it is an art form, a skill that is perhaps vanishing all together considering the almost sole use of computers during this day and age.

Many museums have kept records of scripts covered in ancient calligraphy from around the world, revering them as priceless artifacts. In reference to age-old Arabic handwriting, the Metropolitan Museum of Art defines calligraphy as a “harmonious proportion of both letters within a word and words on a page.”

Although this lost skill is one to be respected, it can also be deeply analyzed. According to Kathi McKnight, a master graphologist, interviewed by Business Insider, the way you write, down to the smallest of details, can say a lot about you. “Just from analyzing your handwriting, experts can find over 5,000 personality traits,” she says. Below are 20 mind-blowing examples of flawless handwriting that’ll get you practicing in no time.

1. The handwriting of this 8th-grade student from Nepal is enough to make you do a double take. His perfectly consistent lettering looks like it was typed up on a computer, italics and all.

2. This insanely intricate calendar was handmade by somebody’s grandmother. She makes one annually and clearly can handle a pencil. Her illustrations and penmanship are so detailed, they beat out the printed ones.

3. Professor perfect? This teacher from the Philippines gives everyone in class a run for their money. He perfectly lines up every sentence and draws out flawless shapes like it’s straight out of the textbook.

4. This musician writes sheet music by hand using charcoal. He does such a good job with his precision, the symbols might as well be stamped on there! This song, he says, is entitled Canon In D by Pachelbel.

5. This student takes studying to the next level with their amazingly accurate drawings and notes of the human anatomy. If you’re gonna borrow notes from anyone, this is your guy!

6. Copperplate, a classic style of calligraphic writing, has always been hard to master. This man, however, killed his surreal version of Pablo Neruda’s Sonnet Seventeen, a beautiful Spanish love poem.

7. Jose Naranja is a professional bookbinder who makes his own travel diaries and shares them online. Not only is his handwriting incomparable and interesting but its paired with colorful and intricate hand-drawn images that illustrate his journeys perfectly.

8. Sometimes simple is better. This blackboard sign for Tacos found in Bristol, United Kingdom, struck a chord with a passer-by who felt the rounded font was particularly satisfying to read.

9. A tongue twister turned itself into a beautifully written message thanks to a man practicing his cursive. “How much would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?” are the immaculately jotted words that came out of it.

10. Everyone’s been a victim of having to create a crowded one-paged cheat sheet, but no one’s done it quite like this. Odds are, this student is passing with flying colors with their exceptionally well-organized note-taking skills.

11. This person’s grandfather wrote a cute birthday wish for his grandson with the most unique and cool penmanship. Each of his letters looks like they are meant to form the title of a modern Sci-Fi flick, and it’s awesome.

12. This person not only mastered a gorgeous curved font but added a special combination of illustration and writing with a Raven embodying the word “nevermore,” to end off the poem.

13. This student deserves an A+, not only for their test answers but for their amazingly uniform bubbled print handwriting. Their style is so consistent, it reads very well and looks sublimely organized, worthy of a high grade.
