Here’s what she said:
“If I was born of a scarcity mentality and I woke up on a Sunday to all that awesomeness on front page of Sunday Nation, and I wasn’t proud of it even me why lie I would be like that. I would get to social media and get nasty because how dare they and why those two, why us?  because we are awesome. Julie and I are great at what we do”.
“But I don’t think that is even in contention is it? What is truly in contention is one thing; how much did they get paid, isn’t it? That’s the only thing that’s bothering you isn’t it? Ok so let me tell you something. Having Julie as co-emcee for the friends of Jubilee fundraiser dinner was awesome. because we speak the same language”.
“We  didn’t get paid. It’s something we decided, nobody decided it for us. The only time we mentioned it publicly is at the dinner table and we clearly told the President we had forfeited our pay as a gift to him for his fundraiser”
The bold and charming Caroline goes on to dare her haters to pick up the Emceeing job for the upcoming NASA Party Campaign Fundraiser Dinner and even charge for it.
Nasa is about to have a fundraiser. I dare you, I dare you to try and charge them. They will be like Caroline and Julie don’t charge, who are you”. Then the bile will start all over again. Which goes to show you can’t please people. If we had been paid you would have been bitter and now that we haven’t been paid, some people are now saying that we spoilt it for them”.
In her You Tube Channel, Caroline adds
“Now that you know we didn’t get paid and that was the only thing bugging you, jealousy was destroying you, calm down, untangle your necklace swallow the bile in your throat before it kills you and get back to life”.

High On Power? Senator Mike Sonko Claims To Be Acting President After Disrupting Funeral

The ever outspoken Nairobi senator, Mike Sonko, on Friday disrupted a funeral service shouting that he was the acting president of Kenya.

Sonko went to the funeral of Dolamu Oduwole, husband to Machakos governor hopeful Wavinya Ndeti who died after his blood pressure shot up.

“Rais Uhuru is in Togo, DP William Ruto ako France I am number three in command politically and socially. I am now the acting president of the republic of Kenya,” he said.

“All these police officers and vehicles you see are here because am now the acting President.”

Sonko who was asked to wind up his speech after talking for more than 10 minutes began shouting to the master of ceremony telling him to leave him alone.

The seemingly angered Sonko then walked towards the MC and tried to throw a punch warning him not to switch off his microphone.

“You can’t do that to me. When Raila was talking no one disrupted him,” he said.

“Hapana shika mimi…Taka taka gasia nyinyi. Wasituletee Kwendeni kabisa huko.” Loosely translated to (do not touch me, you are garbage, don’t dare us, get out of here. Get out.)

After a while, the Nairobi governor aspirant was asked to read the speech of president Uhuru Kenyatta but when he began, the crowd started shouting and murmuring.

“Unadhani hapa ni Jubilee” ‘Kwenda huko” others were heard shouting as people started leaving the arena.

His behavior compelled Cord leader Raila Odinga who was present during the service to leave accompanied by his bodyguards.

Earlier on, Raila who spoke to the crowd assured them that there would not be politics in the funeral.

“We came for a burial. But you can see Kalonzo is here, Wetang’ula is here and myself. We are together. It is the media spreading rumors that Cord will split,” said Raila.

Raila termed reports that Kalonzo and Wetang’ula will break from the coalition as rumours.

“They say Wetang’ula will leave, that Kalonzo will also go and that Raila will go it alone. All these are rumours,” he added.

Trends: #2yearsofsuccess

The jubilee government marked two year since they came to power on the 9th of April. Unfortunately it came days after Kenyans were mourning the death of 147 people most of them students, a security guard and policemen who were killed at the Garissa University college.

The government that came to power with loads of promises has faced various challenges and security is at the top of the list.

With the 2year celebration came the government sponsored hashtag #2yearsofsucess to inform on the progress of the things they had done since coming to power.

However this did not go down well with the Kenyan online fraternity as they thought it was inappropriate given the timing, and so a war of words ensued. The hashtag was countered by #2yearsoffailure and a bashing of the #2yearsofsuccess.

Here are some of the opinions expressed by KOT.

Jubilee to back Kidero against impeachment motion

Jubilee MCAs in Nairobi county yesterday said they will not support a motion to impeach Governor Evans Kidero.

Cord MCAs plan to impeach Kidero on grounds that he is not performing and he is disloyal to ODM.

Minority leader Abdi Guyo said, however, Jubilee will seek dialogue to iron out contentious issues.

‘We will not be party to that. We will root for dialogue as President Uhuru has always said. We will not agree to be used as a rubber stamp,” he told the Star on the phone yesterday.

Karen MCA David Mberia said once the assembly reconvenes on Tuesday, they will table an impeachment motion against Kidero.

“Kidero has done nothing for the county. When the Lang’ata Road Primary School land was grabbed, the governor kept mum and only spoke after everybody else had spoken,” he said.

“Kidero is actually disinterested in serving Nairobians and it’s time we got serious as MCAs and removed him from office.”

Last week, majority leader Elias Otieno, a close ally of Kidero, asked him to resign from ODM and seek reelection on a different party ticket.

Kidero supports Philip Okundi of Maendeleo Democratic Party against Moses Kajwang’ of ODM in the Homa Bay senator by-election to be held on Thursday next week.

Guyo said, however, Kidero is free to support whoever he wants in Homa Bay.

 

Jubilee to sponsor motion to withdraw Kenya from ICC

The Jubilee coalition has agreed to sponsor a motion in parliament seeking to withdraw Kenya as a member of the Rome Statute.

Addressing the press at an ongoing retreat of  Jubilee members  in a Naivasha hotel, the Mps and Senators agreed to sponsor two private bills over the ICC.

According to  leader of the majority Aden Duale, the process of pulling Kenya out of the ICC  has kicked off.  “It’s now clear that the ICC is a political court and we have embarked on the process of pulling Kenya out of this process,” he said.

Duale said the  move would not affect the ongoing case against deputy President William Ruto and his co-accused, journalist Joshua Sang

On his part, Senator Kithure Kindiki said that they would  stand behind the two as their cases continued in The Hague.

He said that Kenya was a sovereign state which would not be ruled by foreign masters through  institutions like the ICC.

“We have given the ICC total co-operation but we have come to learn that this institution is full of lies, injustice and neo-colonialism,” he said.

The leaders however declined to comment on the formation of a  Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP)  saying that the issue was still under discussion and would be addressed later. Kindike   said.
