We have not only lost a great leader but also a good man. Hon. Ken Okoth had nothing but love for everyone he encountered and all who sought his guidance and mentorship. He inspired.

He was forthright. He was a shoulder even when he needed a shoulder. He effortlessly etched a beautiful mark in my soul.

Rest my brother. Rest. You were loved beyond measure because you loved beyond measure.

Kenyan female politicians giving men a hard time in parliament – Photos

The 2017 General elections garnered attention, with notable firsts for Kenyan women in politics.

Sophia Loren once said.

Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful. 

Below is a list of Kenyan female politicians giving their counter parts a hard time concentrating in parliament.

1. Sabina Chege

She is Murang’a Women Representative.

‘We are with you’ Janet Mbugua joins Passaris in supporting Akothee

Janet Mbugua has finally joined Nairobi Women’s Representative, Esther Passaris in showing her support for Akothee, even as she continues trending.

This came after Esther Passaris blasted one of Akothee’s harshest critics in a vicious Twitter war after he stated that Akothee’s private parts were visible during a performance.

“My priest tried to penetrate me from behind,”cries city woman

Responding to Akothee’s post Janet wrote

He’s ignorant. And he’s sexist. @akotheekenya you’ve stirred up a great debate and discussion about this whole ‘morality’ thing and many of us are with you 🙌🏾

Esther Passari's ,Janet Mbugua

Passari’s had blasted the critic in the post below which has drawn mixed reactions from Kenyans.

Passari's

Some reactions from Kenyans that are observing this engaging saga are below:

stynes919:Enyewe adui wa mwanamke ni mwanamke mwingine…if Passaris can support this satanic act…I think passaris amekejeli mtu hapa

@officialjanetmbugua: behave like that ….again you’ve gotten it all wrong .we are where we are because of our our unique talents and strengths and passion. Kindly stick to your lane

manuell_loy:Waah @akotheekenya mamaa i envy you oooh…trending for the whole week because of doing what you love the most. I also want to trend this way one day because of doing what i love😊. Wachana na huyu mtu.

Alitafta mtu mwenye atamsaidia kutrend pia akaona tu ni wewe, He should thank God also he is trending.

They made noise also during the London performance but they finally shut their lips up. Dont worry they will get uses to ooh.

Just do you mamaa. I love you💜. Let them fight corruption that is eating our country first before even getting to entertainment.

‘Akothee’s private parts were exposed only in your mind’ Shouts Passaris

Akothee seems to have earned a soft spot in the hearts of many Kenyan leaders among them, Esther Passaris, who is Nairobi’s Women Representative.

Just days after being called a bad influence, Esther Passaris has hit out at one of Akothee’s critics whom she did not name. The critic had insinuated that the singer’s cookie jar was visible during a performance.

The critic responded to Akothee’s supporters maintaining his stance and not budging one inch.

‘My husband must smell my cookie jar every day after work,’ woman cries

Akothee

 

But Passaris, like Akothee, replied to the critic’s remark saying:

You have a sick mind. Her private part was exposed only in your mind. On stage I saw her sexy dance moves, her flexibility and her confidence in her skin.

You saw her vagina through her costume and double stockings. You need help my brother. You need help.”

Akothee

“My priest tried to penetrate me from behind,”cries city woman

As you might expect, the singer has also responded to the remarks, her main concern being how the critic saw her cookie jar yet he did not attend the concert?

“Sambary saw p#ssy on stage that he was not present? Sambary say Amen @esthermpassaris 🙋🙋”

We can only wait and see how this drama unfolds. Drop your feedback in the comment section on whether Passaris is right in defending Akothee’s behaviour.

Esther Passaris’s 53rd birthday is not one she is likely to forget

On October 20th as Kenyans were marking Mashujaa day, Nairobi woman representative Esther Passaris was celebrating turning 53-years-old, with patients at Kenyatta National Hospital.

Mama taa as she is popularly referred to, chose to celebrate her birthday with patients at the accident ward at KNH.

She personally handed out cake to the patients, and yes..she was careful not to give to diabetic patients, so relax. She said so herself.

She also handed out a special surprise to a young girl, who had one request during the campaigns. The cute young girl wanted a phone, and Esther Passaris gladly gave it out to her.

She also spent the afternoon at Imani rehabilitation centre in Kayole

Here are photos of her big day.

Shebesh And Passaris Better Watch Out! Proof That Maina Kageni Could WIN The Nairobi Woman Representative Seat

Celebrated radio personality Maina Kageni shocked fans when he revealed that he is venturing into politics, and he wasn’t going for an MP or senator seat, but a rather very interesting position.

Maina Kageni announced that he would be running for the Nairobi Woman Representative seat where he would be competing against NASA’s Esther Passaris and Jubilee’s Rachel Shebesh aka ‘Manzi Wa Nairobi’.

His co-host Mwalimu King’ang’i prefers to take the men’s side and if you listen to the breakfast show, you know that Maina’s moniker name is actually ‘Woman Rep’.

When Maina Kageni made the important announcement that he would be running for this seat, he said that he wanted to represent women and have their voices heard, eliciting mixed reactions.

But does Maina Kageni really have fans out there who would actually vote for him? Well, a Nairobi county opinion polls shows that Maina is among the top three candidates who would be voted in.

esther-passari-shebesh

The research byTrends and Insights For Africa (TIFA), revealed that Maina Kageni garnered 1% of voters, as Esther Passaris topped with 57%  and Shebesh getting 25% of the voters, but a 15% are still undecided.

This means that if Maina Kageni would actually campaign and put more effort in pushing for this seat he could probably win this race, keeping in mind the undecided voters.

Check out the results below as Nairobians gave their preference for Woman Rep 2017.

Jeff Koinange said, “About a week ago, we had a programme that deteriorated into something extremely ugly. Where two guests went at each others throats. It was out of control. There are people out there who thought I should have done a better job in controlling the guests. And I agree. Looking back, probably, hindsight is always 20-20 and in a live broadcast it is always difficult but I agree. I’m man enough, to man up to that and if there is anyone who was aggrieved by the show, anyone who felt it was not up to par, I did not do a good job, I apologise, so that we can move on. It was regrettable in most parts, but then again it was one show out of 300 shows we have done here at KTN for the last 3 years, 300 shows. It was regrettable.”

After the apology, Jeff Koinange them announced that it will be the last Jeff Koinange Live show on KTN.

“We will take a little break, but rest assured all of you watching tonight, Jeff Koinange Live will be back on another station in the coming weeks. Jeff Koinange Live is not going anywhere. It is just changing homes,” the TV host assured his fans.

The media houses that was housing the show also posted a statement on why they have dropped the show from it regular programming.
