MP apologises to CS Matiang’i over fight with police : The Standard

Published

on


Nakuru Town East legislator David Gikaria (pictured) has tendered a public apology to Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i over his recurring conflicts with security agencies.
Gikaria who spoke during the official launch of an e-passport center in Nakuru said that he had changed his ways and would closely work with the police to enhance security in his constituency.
“I never knew we had new officers and it is during the recent confrontation I came to learn about it. I ask for forgiveness from those whom I wronged. It is unfortunate our paths had to cross that way,” said Gikaria.
SEE ALSO :Matiang’i: Betting a ticking time bombThree weeks ago, the lawmaker was engaged in a fight with the police over the construction of bodaboda shades on a private land at Pipeline area.  The lawmaker allegedly assaulted a Deputy Sub County Police commander during his arrest.
After police whisked him away, photographs of him bare footed and dressed in a T-shirt and a pair of shorts emerged. Gikaria later claimed he had been battered by a group of officers.
Gikaria said that he had forgiven the officers against whom he had already lodged a complaint at the Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA).
“I have forgiven those who assaulted me. From here I will engage IPOA to have the complaints I had lodged against officers who assaulted me withdrawn,” said Gikaria.
The lawmaker has on several times been accused of derailing efforts of bringing down the dreaded criminal gang by bailing them out once they are charged in court.

Rift Valley Regional Coordinator Mongo Chimwanga said that during their efforts to fight the gang he came to learn that it was linked to the MP.
“After a court released members of the gang on bond they camped near my offices before they vanished. I was shocked to get information that they were Gikaria’s people whom I learnt he had also bailed them out,” said Chimwanga.
Accepting his apology on behalf of the officers, Matiang’i said that it was the responsibility of the security team to take necessary action against all Kenyans where there is breach of law regardless of their social status.
“Your apology is accepted and it is our hope you stick to your newfound self. It is time for you to sit with the county security team and help in strategising how security in the area can be improved,” said Matiang’i.

They Didn’t Look For Votes On My Behalf, I Went Looking For My Votes, President Kenyatta Tells Off ‘Allies’ –

Published

on


Kenya could be in for a changing political landscape and a major crack in Jubilee, after President Uhuru Kenyatta openly told off those politicking about 2022.

Speaking during the 2019 Akorino Annual conference, President Kenyatta seemingly sending a coded message switched to Kikuyu language, accusing some politicians of ‘giving him headache’ for politicking about 2022.

“These thugs that we elected are busy politicking. They should not think I am their boy, they will not stop me from constructing roads. They didn’t look for votes on my behalf. I went looking for my votes. These rubbish should stop bothering me,” said Kenyatta.

Kenyatta added that he had chosen to refrain from newspapers and social media since they were saturated with politics.

“When they see me remain silent, they should not think they are threatening me. I will flush them out from where they are… Just because you are making headlines, don’t think you will bother me. And that is why I stopped concentrating on newspapers or those Facebooks of theirs,” he added.

The President seemingly did not spare his deputy William Ruto who was present, attacking his political faction dubbed Tanga tanga, for politicking about 2022.

“If you are an elected leader go to the grassroots construct schools, install electricity for your people stop going round telling us how you shall rise to power. You will not go anywhere without these people,” said Mr Kenyatta.

There have been major divisions at the ruling Jubilee Party, with one faction dubbed Kieleweke accusing Ruto led wing, Tanga Tanga, of advancing 2022 agenda when the time is yet.

Hunter hunted as former prosecutor fined Sh200,000 for bribery : The Standard

Published

on


An Eldoret court has fined a prosecutor based in Kitale Sh200,000 after he was found guilty of soliciting bribes.

Eldoret Chief Magistrate Charles Obulutsa ruled that James Naburuk Sichangi will serve two years in jail in default for two counts of receiving bribe contrary to Ethics and Economic Crime Act.
Obulutsa said although the accused was the first offender, his action exposed the National police and the office of Director of Public Prosecutor to public ridicule and contempt.
According to charge sheet the accused, who was working as a court prosecutor at Kitale law court on November 15 2014, solicited for a bribe of Sh60,000 from Ms Joyce Wanjiku as an inducement to support a bail application by Wanjiku’s employee Fred Wabuoba who was charged in a Kitale court.
SEE ALSO :3 motorbike thieves jailed for 20 yearsOn the second count, Mr Sichangi is said to have concealed Sh30, 000 which was to be used as evidence into the alleged offence.
The accused was initially charged with five counts of corruption by Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).
The complainant reported the matter to the offices of EACC in Eldoret where she was given a recorder and Sh60, 000 marked money which was given to the accused as a bribe.
The charge sheet further stated that the accused was recorded asking for the money.
He received the treated money on November 13 at the Kitale law court where he was immediately arrested by EACC detectives.

In respect to the second and fourth count they have been proved beyond a reasonable doubt,” said the Magistrate in his judgement.

International’ premieres in Kenya – Nairobi News

Published

on


Men In Black: International is the fourth entry in the sci-fi saga and comes seven years after MIB 3 and a quarter of a century since Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith first introduced audiences to the top-secret agency.

Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth take over from “MI3” which ended with a clear finale for its two central characters and that is why the characters were not featured in the latest installation.

Agent H and Agent M, this time around, are spearheading the London bureau’s precarious mission to protect the Earth from an alien species.

Compared to the three previous films, Men In Black: International, is in a way very predictable, yet still mildly funny.

ALIENS ON EARTH

Thompson and Hemsworth are the dynamic duo who make the film better. The two agents employ high-tech weaponry to battle mischievous aliens on Earth.

However, the pair also discover a major threat within their own ranks. The new MIB agents are no longer protecting Earth from the scum of the universe as we learn from the onset of the movie.

Thompson’s performance as an unprincipled, quick-witted and is one of the standouts of the film and she sparks in her character.

COMIC RELIEF

Apart from the two, the film offers some comic relief in the form of alien Pawny, itty-bitty voiced by Kumail Nanjiani, who brings a lot of life into the small little alien.

While the trailer only shows a joke or two, Pawny plays such a big role in the film. Pawny is the film’s comedy MVP.

The film also stars Liam Neeson, Rebecca Ferguson, Rafe Spall, Laurent Bourgeois, and Larry Bourgeois.

It premiered in Nairobi on Wednesday at an invite only event at Anga Imax courtesy of BuzzKenya. Movie goers can also purchase tickets at the site.
