Achieng Agutu, a Kenyan student based in the USA is trending on Twitter after confessing that she does six jobs to survive, one of them being a taxi driver.
I work one full time job. I am an admissions counselor at the Holy Cross College, but then I babysit for two families.
I wash people’s cars and clean their houses.
I am an Uber driver and I also teach English to International students.
She shared these details after she caught Ellen Degeneres’s attention while dancing on the TV show.
In the video, she begins by narrating how she landed in the USA and her motive there.
I MOVED HERE (TO THE U.S.) ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO FOR HIGHER EDUCATION AND IT’S BEEN AMAZING BUT IT’S ALSO BEEN REALLY HARD FOR MY FAMILY BACK IN KENYA BECAUSE THEY’VE HONESTLY DONE EVERY SINGLE THING FROM SELLING LAND TO TAKING LOANS TO BE ABLE TO PAY MY SCHOOL FEES AND MAKE SURE THAT I’M COMFORTABLE.
Achieng, who had never seen her family in two years because they stay in Kenya and South Africa, finally met them.
It was an emotional reunion during the interview when her parents and brother appeared live on stage.
Cases of slay queens being lured by rich men then leaving them with bills especially at nightclubs is not something new.
Such instances are reported every weekend and it’s high time women learn to work hard and pay their bills.
Just recently, a South African man invited a slay queen out for drinks and as usual, she tagged along her squad hoping to milk this gentleman dry, but he was smart.
The sponsor asked them to order anything they want and as usual, the slay queens went for expensive fine whiskeys without knowing that the sponsor would pull out.
After drinking, shaking their bums and ignoring any men who came near them to dance with them, the sponsor left, leaving them with a bill of 37,000 Rands equivalents to Sh282, 964.
Kwani walikuwa wanakunywa damu ya Yesu? (Insert DJ Shitti’s voice).
Well, a Kenyan man started a thread inviting men who’ve been in the same situation as this sponsor to share their experiences under the hashtag #MasculinityKE
“Nairobi living- A friend’s friend( a babe) invites me for a drink a few weeks back and later tell me she’ll be bringing friends. I go to meet her and get there before her and order my beers and chill,” read his post.
Men thronged the lad’s inbox to confess the bad things they did to such slay queens and below are some of their comments.
Having a jealous friend in your circle is not a good idea. If you’re in a relationship and they don’t like the person you’re dating or don’t support your relationship, they will always say bad things about you.
Do you have such friends?
Well, here is a complication of funny phrases jealous Kenyans use when they envy your relationship, go through:
Anang’ara na pesa za loan
2. Atamchezeaa atamwacha tuu, situpo tutayaona.
3. Kampendea hela tu
4. Mtaachana tuu
5. Si nilikuambia uyo dem ndo amekwamilia uyo chali, uyo chali ampendi
6. Anamchezea tuu hatamuoa
7. Tulijua tu vile vilikuwa vishindo ya nguvu ya soda
A woman on Classic 105 stunned many when she proudly and openly declared she has built a home for her husband and ensures she deposits cash in his account regularly, with the biggest amount being Sh300,000.
It turns out that there is a problem women have and that has to do with giving men money. Why can’t women help a man out financially and not keep quiet about? KOT of course were on hand to give their take on the topic. check out some comments below.
Mwalimu Kingang’i says men help out all the time, but women have a problem doing so.
‘Show me one woman, yule amesaidia mwanume mpaka akafika mwisho, na hasemi. Hawawezi pita watatu. Literally dragged a man from the mad, akamsomesha, akapata kazi, he built an empire, na amenyamaza.’
Irene, was of the view that silence in a woman is the most painful thing, Shiku on the other hand was of the view that giving a man money is giving him a gate pass to irresponsibility. She went on to add that ‘I can help him out other ways but not financially’.
Another woman said ‘I can’t help a man financially, I will tell him to go get a job, even for mjengo’, Purity was of the opinion that unless he is sick I’ can’t help him’.
Another said, ‘If it were not for me bwanangu hangekuwa popote saa hii. Mimi namsaidia kila siku Everyday I wake up in the morning namwmbea, Mamabo yote namshugulikia, ile siku nitawacha itakuwa mwisho wake.’
Here are more comments from KOT to Maina Kageni.
Lindah @l_kahiga.. @ItsMainaKageni @Classic105Kenya….Mwanamke ni mdomo, that’s why when Adam allowed her to provide for him.. they ended up eating the forbidden fruits. Let them provide the same way they fight to be the head of the family.. ni hayo tu
@ItsMainaKageni I would do anything for my hubby, the father of my kids I love him. I want to start a business for him n soon I'm buying land for our home 🏡. @MainaandKingang
Monique Kimmss …Yes but let him never forget like many do,go looking for MWK and forget it’s his woman who held the ladder to his way up!Some men are helped by their wife’s yet they treat them like gabbage.
#MainaAndKingangi These days, support a man financially at your own risk. Many are team mafisi members and will not be there for you.Yours lovingly will not take responsibility for heart damages when you get dumped or when your money goes down the drain. @ItsMainaKageni
Meru University Student Union Secretary General Evans Njoroge aka Kidero was shot dead in cold blood yesterday by the police.
According to an eyewitness identified as Dominic Limiri,
“Police chased after the student through my compound before one of the officers shot him within my farm.”
Although no one knows the exact motive why Kidero was killed, many have described him as a great young man, who wanted the best for the Meru University students.
“When I hear news bout Meru University & your cold blood murder, I see no hope left for me in life. Reminds me of the cruel times we living in, none of your assassins knows the no. of storms you weathered to be where you were, but I do. Rip bro😓, we the last ones left,” read a message by Odoh_Oniala
In his last post, he shared on Facebook, Kidero wrote a Memo to the university management and here is what he wrote on the 31st of January.
“This is our MEMO to the university management.
We will give directions on the way forward in pursuing our justice in the course of the day.
A little patience won’t cost an arm. We need to be ultra-accurate in all our plans to ensure that all injustices in MUST, including the fee issue are addressed immediately.
Meanwhile, all students are urged to stay off classes until a full solution to our irreducible minimums below, is provided by the university management.
These are our rights comrades. It’s the time for change in this institution.
We have stayed on our knees long enough.
We write MEMO’s that land on deaf ears.
This can’t continue. Someone must be held accountable.
STUDENTS ASSOCIATION OF MERU UNIVERSITY P.O BOX 972-60200 MERU,
TO: THE MERU UNIVERSITY MANAGEMENT DATE: 31/01/2018
RE: OUR FRESH DEMANDS
The above subject matter refers;
We are surprised by the DVC’S Memo on the revision of the fee structure. As the norm, no promise has been honored.
The proposal by the Vice chancellor detailed a reduction that amounted to not less than KSH. 8,500, per academic year.
Now, what we are seeing is a reduction that’s amounting to hardly KSH. 4000.
Below is a list of our fresh irreducible minimums that must be met before the University resumes to its normal operations:
1. Fee reduction to a practical amount in relation to our HELB allocations per semester- less than 35,000 per academic year.
We will be giving a detailed summary of our petition with all the newly introduced, controversial components that we need to be scrapped from our fee structure after our crisis meeting with all SAMU leaders.
2. Implementation of the revised fee structure in the 2017/2018 academic year.
We did not start pursuing the fee reduction course because of the 2018/2019 academic year’s fee. We want the changes to take effect immediately. We can’t postpone the solution to these injustices any longer. This course will only halt upon receiving the revised fee structure for the 2017/2018 academic year and getting satisfied with the reduction.
3. All the money that has been charged illegally, like the KUCCPS increment, that have been on effect for the last 3 years should be accounted for with immediate effect. A communication from the management to the students should be produced immediately directing students on the effects of the controversial payments that were made illegally.
4. A Solution to the clean water supply hazard that’s currently being experienced at the university.
We need clean water supply to: All hostels Students center Playing ground 5. A solution to the hygiene menace in the hostels and academic blocks where students are using cans to fetch water to flash the toilets.
6. A proof of certification for the Leaking buildings and cracking academic blocks, the likes of the engineering complex that are endangering the lives of the students and lecturers.
A solution to these dangerous infrastructures should be provided immediately. Meanwhile, students are urged to stay away from buildings like Engineering complex.
7. Cleanliness and improvement of our students center. We have written severally about the current blocked drainage system, the unavailability of: dustbins, a utensil’s cleaning sink, Fire extinguishers, sufficient number of shades to accommodate a majority of the students.
Failure to allocate several workers to be in charge of cleaning the students center. Or is the students center not part of Meru University?
8. Maintenance of the roads and pathways: We are tired of seeing the university rushing to repaint and clean the only road in Meru university when graduation time comes knocking.
We want a solution to the overgrown grass along our roads and pathways, the potholes and disease-causing dust to be arrived at immediately and without fail.
9. We understand that money close to 44-million KSH was allocated for the improvement of our university playing grounds that are at the worst state, about a year ago. We are yet to see even a slight development in the fields.
We are demanding a full update immediately on when we expect better playing grounds. After all, we are here to grow into all round people while some of us never get a chance to discover their talents due to the poor state of our playing grounds.
10. We want a full account of the money we have been paying for medical subscription. We will no longer sit and continue paying the 4000KSH medical subscription while our hospital continues to deteriorate to its worst state. We expect that with the high charge MUST should, at the moment, have a reputable health center. Considering the fact that we pay more than 16 million Kenya shillings per year on medical subscription. Where has the money been going to for the last 5 years?
Our hospital has only one doctor, no nurses, no sufficient medicine, no inpatient services. We need a full explanation.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has ordered NTSA to keep off roads and let police officers manage traffic.
The president noted on Tuesday that many accidents have been taking place.
At least 330 people died in several parts of the country in crashes in December 2017 alone. Some of the most grisly accidents took place at the Salgaa black spot.
Officials of the National Transport and Safety Authority have been camping on roads to monitor driving and use police officers seconded to them to arrest offenders.
In 2016, the National Police Service seconded some 200 police officer to NTSA to help with enforcing traffic laws.
But Uhuru said: “Leave the duty to traffic police.”
He continued: “I agree that road accidents have been on the rise. The government will work to ensure we minimise the accidents.
“We have decided that all NTSA officers withdraw from the roads and leave traffic work to police. We want to see if we can restore order on the roads.”
The president noted every Kenyan has the responsibility of cautioning reckless drivers and that the public must complement the government’s efforts.
“As a passenger, you have a responsibility to ensure the driver [adheres to] rules. Passengers should not be the ones urging drivers to speed,” he said. “It’s better to arrive late and safely rather than die or be injured in a speeding vehicle.”
The last time a nationwide power blackout happened, it turned out that a monkey was to blame for tripping power. The looks of disbelief on the faces of Kenyans was enough to tell you what a joke they thought Kenya Power is.
Well, once again, Nairobi was engulfed in darkness and while the power company is yet to get back with a response on the blackout, KOT took time out to make meme’s and jokes, as they waited for power to be restored.
Go through below and have a ‘powerful’ day won’t you?
Michael Gwei….I stopped trusting Kenya Power
the moment i saw backup
power generators in their
offices. Cyprian kiprop.…Martin Luther….black..
Barack Obama… black..
Kenya Power….. black..
AdamMaina_.…REPORTER: Mr Matiang’i what’s your take on the countrywide power black out?
MATIANG’I: It was agreed by Kenya Power that instead of giving Kenyans short power breaks all year long, we combine it all give you in one night and move on, we’re streamlining the power curriculum. kelvin mwangi….Kenya power have jst tried “MPANGO WA CANDLE”😀😁😁😁😁😁
One never knows exactly what they will wake up to when they log onto social media. Kenyans are known to make all manner of topics trend online and sometimes it’s funny but other times, the topic may rub someone the wrong way.
Well KOT are at it this time round with a debate, and a hotly contested one about dowry.
Someone has shared a letter addressed to Kenyan dude’s detailing how much they should pay for dowry. Have you seen it. If not, check it out below.
Well, it purpots to outline how much Kenyan men should pay for their chicks, depending on her character. This is where it gets savage. From sheesha smoking girls, to those who can’t cook, here is how much you should expect to pay if you intend to walk down the aisle anytime soon.
Also check out the reactions of KOT, as they comment on the topic, and completely drag members of the opposite sex.
Thedarling’s Kris …Threat to the boy child is not about dowry but older men who have nothing to mentor… Ladies don’t wish a dowry of millions be offered for you by a rich idiot who knows that with money they can but you like a house or car not aware of the sanctity of marriage.
Hope Favor …I think character should be the main agenda..Can be in University and a an E gal surpasses you when it comes to maturity and good character…
Alì Bomayë …Slay queen – handshake only Like a drug deal
Bianca Jovial ..Nyakundi should stick to his lane
Musyoka Mary …At the end of it…all will give birth the same way 😣😉 feeling irritated
Naenda hivi narud
Annet Gathoni …Do you know that dowry is fixed by the elders… Hizi story za sijui boy child mtaacha…
Still Reagan …For a std 8 dropout, a handshake is enough
Such men only show up when you are successful in life, but when things are thick he is nowhere.
The topic of Absentee fathers is one that is likely to cause wagging tongues, as we all know such a man.
On Classic 105 this morning presenter Maina Kageni boldly took on this topic and man oh man did he have something to say.
Alot of men tried to get philosophical on why they are deadbeats, something that didn’t sit well with Maina and female callers.
There can be no reason why a man should be absent from his children’s life‘, Maina shouted to one caller who tried to defend himself. ‘You are to blame for being absent, you cannot stay for months without seeing your child.
Maina was seething with anger when another man revealed he has seen his daughter twice this year.
‘Don’t justify not seeing your children, I will never understand people like this’, he declared.
Hezbon, a male caller, disclosed that he has two sons with another woman, and always thinks about his children but doesn’t see them. He insists that the fact hat he is not there in his life there are valid reasons and circumstances
He said; ‘my heart is really heavy’, he tried to excuse his absence from his children’s life.
Maina wasn’t convinced and wanted to know the last time he saw his children. ‘About three months ago because of resources and two because of the kind of relationship with his mother. When I go she says hawako, sometimes she says many things about what you did to her.’
He continued; ‘The woman makes it so hard when men try to make things normal. Our feelings are very different from women. They make is so hard for us so that any other person in the periphery thinks it is us on the wrong. They create a picture it is us who are bad.’
Other men waded into the conversation, blaming Kenyan women by saying they and their harsh attitude is the reason deadbeat dads keep away from their children.
Do you buy this argument? Listen to the audio below;
It was pomp and colour on 28th November 2018 as Uhuru Kenyatta was sworn in as the fourth President of the Republic of Kenya for the second term at the Kasarani stadium. Top artistes, the likes of award-winning singers Rufftone, Emmy Kosgei, Size 8 just to mention but a few entertained those who had attended the inauguration.
But all did not go well when Mateke hitmaker Size 8 took to the stage to entertain the crowd. After a short performance, Size 8 started talking too much at least according to social media and she had just started singing her second song Tam Tam when all hell broke loose.
“Willy Willy Willy (Willy Paul Msafi)
Number Nane Nane (Size 8)
Mmm… Alemba Aliamua Oh, Oh, Aliamua,
Dj Mo Akaamua Au aahhh…”
Before the crowd could even join in the singing, her performance was cut short leaving her followers tongues wagging.
Some claim that Size 8 chose the wrong song for such an occasion and she talked too much wasting time yet other artistes were lined up ready to give their best. DJ Mo’s wife is now the trending topic on social media and here are some of the comments from her followers.
Jennymukuhi: Your performance was pathetic. Actually you didn’t perform. Had to mute my TV for a few minutes. If i may ask. Why were you shouting?😡😡😡.\

Gladys Wambugu: You were beautiful, but next time talk less and choose a song in accordance with occasion…. And stop yelling to your audience… #peace
Kui Kimani: It’s like you were yelling at the crowd and talking too much. Aaaiii… I think that’s why walikuzima haraka hivyo.

Soni: Size 8 you shrieked today!!! It was terrible. You are good. Don’t over do it.
Ivy: Today you were shouting not singing. Not what was expected of you mama
Mukuiya: As much as I try to be positive but you really need coaching in performance and not shouting over yourself. Had to change channels
Nthambiirene: Punguza panganga and I really doubt you mama sasa!!!!!!okoka cha ukweli uwache movie
Fayt: Today was your worst. I think you are doing too much mama Wambo.Taking too much jobs,mara you are hosting some show,mara ni pampers.At the end of the day your music suffers.I dont think you rehersed well for todays show which was a NATIONAL event.Remember to the public you are an entertainer and that’s the reason we loved you in the first place
Kathuremuia: I love your music, kudos, but next time you are given such a chance, kindly go straight to singing don’t hype the crowd. Today you hyped too much.
Mama_tugi: @kathuremuia kwanza when she said “Si mumekuja kujienjoy?” I was like really. Like seriously?These guys are here to see the president being inaugurated. Her choice of song was also wrong.
Macherephennique: Aki Leo uliboo mama wambo but punguza kiherehere
Winnie: Leo mama wambo aki si ulikua na kiherehere aki…ona sasa ulizimwa kaa msumaa
Not so long ago a ‘classy’ car wash was opened along Thika road and what struck the eyes of many, was the beautiful chics or in short slay queens working there. Skimpily dressed and some even in bikinis, their dress code indeed attracts many customers. Slay queens will be the end of us!
But most Kenyans are not happy. They claim these beauties are promoting immorality in the society and that they should be stopped as soon as possible. Such things only appear in dancehall videos by Jamaican artistes.
Well, some Kenyans are calling upon Ezekiel Mutua, the Kenya Film Classification Board ( KFCB) CEO to take action immediately.
Check out the reactions from concerned Kenyans
Philis: Whaa it looks like not a car wash alone
Wanjiku: This is evil.when will some women respect their bodies and not be used as objects for someone else’s selfish gain.Wake up women, who are doing this.
Brenda: The way the devil welcomes you to hell. He dangles and you follow..hivyo tu ndo MTU ujikuta hell bila kujielewa.
Stacy: What are they trying to advertise?
Rose: This is the ridiculous thing ever.nonsense
Massawe Japanni: Waristhis
Lillian: Beauty contest, carwash or what? Mine can’t be cleaned by half-naked women
Joe: This is how cheap girls have lowered themselves to become
Gordon: Ezekiel Mutua, does social media advertisement fall under your docket?.This is not good, the Government need to ban such advertisement, they are evil.Women being used to advertise a place in a pretext of cleaning cars while half-naked?.
Caro: This looks more if desperation
Terry: not being judgmental but do they have parents, relatives or friends who will mind how they are dressed?
Soloh: There are so many ways of killing a cat. Milking men dry
Euner: It’s known na prostitution….
Warui: Wololo hii club itamalizia wanaume haki.’
Dave: Prayers changes things,
Ali: There’s more than car wash. They are advertising Sabina Joy
Dennis: Satan has full control of the world.Imagine these are not animals but daughters of men

Florence: Car wash my foot!!! That’s too immoral
Limo: Do these girls have mothers and fathers??????
While you were at the kibanda eating madondo, all gospel singer Ringtone wanted to do was show off to his fans that he was enjoying his fancy lunch. But he made a mistake that caught the attention of social media, who were quick to troll him for a tiny mistake.
But come to think of it, you know how you type so fast that you don’t check what you typed? Well I guess, Ringtone didn’t either.
He was so excited to show off he was eating a burger for lunch, that it escaped his notice there was a major typo. Read what he wrote below, and do have a bugger free day won’t you.
Am enjoying my bugger for lunch. I take this very moment to remember all of you who may not have a chance to eat anything today. May God perform a miracle.

We can all agree that ‘kizungu ilikuja na meli’.That is why sometimes we say something that leaves people shaking their heads in disbelief, because we have simply ‘murdered’ english.
Our politicians have not been spared by KOT also, and people will dig in when they say or do something that is simply described as RIP English.
A facebook user posted the image below and KOT are sharing instances of English translation fails that will leave you rolling on the floor.

Mwalimu Kingang’i could not believe it this morning when listeners told him that he could be sharing his wife Mwongeli, with other men without being aware of it.
This arose from the morning conversation where Maina Kageni was asking male listeners if they are aware they could be sharing their wives with other men. One woman confessed she has many other men on the side, but insisted those men are nothing more than friends.
This prompted more confessions from female callers, and men were not happy. Women disclosed why they keep other men in their lives a secret, because they know the consequences of having their husbands discover.
