#MasculinityKE: Kenyan men narrate how they fail to pay bills for slay queens

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.

Why Kenyan women can’t keep quiet after giving a man money (AUDIO)

 

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.

Slain Meru University student leader Evans ‘Kidero’ Njoroge to be laid to rest on Thursday

The family of the murdered Meru University student leader Evans ‘Kidero’ Njoroge is crying foul over failure by the state to arrest the main suspect in the case.

This came as the family announced that he slain leader will be laid to rest in their home in Longonot in Naivasha on Thursday.

Speaking at the family’s home on Tuesday, Peter Njoroge Gathuri the father to the deceased said that police had kept them in darkness.

Outrage after killing of Meru University Student leader Evans Njoroge aka Kidero

An emotional Gathuri said that they were yet to come to terms with the murder of his 24 year old son who was to graduate later this year.

“After the post-mortem we transferred the body from Meru to Naivasha ahead of the burial which will be held in our home in Longonot town on Thursday,” he said.

Gathuri called on the CS for Interior Fred Matiang’i to intervene so that the family could get justice terming the incident as pure murder.

“The investigating officers have been taking us in circles and we think there are waiting for the burial so that the pressure on them can be reduced,” he said.

He termed his son as disciplined and a role model to many adding that the family had very high hopes in him before a trigger-happy police decided to shot him dead.

“We have recorded a statement at Meru police station where some students leaders joined us and we hope that justice will be carried out,” said the father of seven.

On his part, the chairman Nakuru Youth Forum Charles Mburu said that they would follow the case to a logical conclusion.

Mburu who is also a neighbor to the deceased expressed his concern over the rising cases of killings by uniformed police across the country.

He called on the IG of Police Joseph Boinett to reign in on his officers adding that some few rogue officers were tarnishing the name of the force.

“It has now become the norm for police to kill innocent members of the public mainly during peaceful demonstrations and its time this was addressed,” he said.

According to a post-mortem conducted on the body of the student, he was shot from close range and from behind leading to instant death.

The post-mortem report further indicated the student was shot once from behind with the bullet exiting from the front and blowing up his brains.

Outrage after killing of Meru University Student leader Evans Njoroge aka Kidero

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,

MEMO

TO: THE MERU UNIVERSITY MANAGEMENT
DATE: 31/01/2018

FROM: SAMU

REF: SAMU/06/083/2018

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.

Cooperating is the only option.

Thank you.

Signed:

Evans Njoroge
SecretaryGeneral

Rodgers Wangila Wabomba
Chairperson.”

Kenyans react after NTSA is ordered to keep off roads

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.”

House help arrested for stealing ‘abandoned’ 8-month-old baby

By Ndichu Waniana

The 8-month-old baby who was on Friday found abandoned along the railway line at Kiyuu area, Ol Kalou was kidnapped at Embakasi by a house help.

Mary Wacuka alias Angela Wambui, who together with her boyfriend claimed they found the baby, was on Tuesday arrested in connection with the crime.

Police in Ol Kalou took her in after she went to the station seeking permission to take the baby from J.M Memorial hospital where the girl was admitted.

It has emerged that Wacuka, who hails from Githunguri village in Ol Kalou, took away the baby after the mother declined to pay her Sh3,000 in monthly salary.

Nyandarua Central OCPD Wilson Kosgei said the child’s parents positively identified the girl but were not allowed to take her from the hospital until the matter is sorted.

He said the case will require further probe by Embakasi DCIO since it was from the said jurisdiction that the crime originated.

“The baby’s parents, who are said to be from Meru, employed Wacuka without taking her identification details or getting information on her background,” he said.

“She was not asked anything to do with ID. A stranger was just employed and given custody of the child. This should serve as a lesson to other parents.”

The woman reportedly travelled with the baby and left her at the railway line before calling her boyfriend Danson Machira of St Thomas village in Ol Kalou for a walk.

The man said he had just arrived from a farmer’s field day at Ol Kalou dairies when Wacuka called requesting that they meet at Kwa Iria stage.

“She requested that we walk to town through the railway line instead of the tarmac. Just as we passed the baby, she cried and we turned to pick her.”

“Little did I know that Angela had stolen the child in Nairobi. I am so confused,” Machira told the Star at the police station before he was released.

He earned his freedom after narrating how he and Wacuka found the baby and reported the matter to the police before taking the girl to the hospital.

Wacuka told the police that she deceived them about the incident since she wanted the child to be in a safe place as she pondered what to do with her.

After The Star ran the story, Nyandarua Central DCIO Stansellous Mwangi called this reporter with information that a baby has been reported missing in Nairobi.

Mwangi camped the hospital where he arrested Machira when he went to check on the baby.

They called Wacuka who lied she was at Nyahururu yet her phone signal indicated she was at Dundori in Nakuru county.

The culprit will be handed to Embakasi DCIO on Wednesday for further probe and prosecution.

Kenyans Savagely Attack Bikini-Clad Girls Working At Car Wash Along Thika Road

Could it be slay queens? Kenyans searching on google how to cook pilau

Trending Google Searches for the Month of October are revealing some rather interesting facts. A report from the team at Google says top on the trending searches for the month was the term ‘Demagogue’.

This is after former Nairobi gubernatorial candidate, Miguna Miguna was banned from a popular TV show for using a statement that the show host considered “to be advocating for violence”. During the show, Mr. Miguna had repeatedly used the term demagogues to refer to the President and his Deputy. The incident received mixed reactions with a section of Kenyans trolling the show host on Social Media for what they referred to as his “lack of understanding of the word demagogue.”

The month also saw Kenyans take to Google in search of Harvey Weinstein. The American film producer and former film studio executive became the second trending search after reports of sexual harassment complaints against him were published. Following the reports, Mr. Weinstein has since been fired by the Weinstein Company board.

Dennis Oliech was the third top trending search. News that the former Harambee Stars captain had “gone broke” sparked mixed reactions among Kenyans online. The news painting Oliech as a man who is struggling financially was triggered by a photo in which the International football legend had posed with former Harambee Stars coach Ghost Mulei on October 1 during the Koroga Festival.

With the continued growth of sports betting culture in the country, the search for daily “bet numbers prediction” became the fourth trending item on Google. As the betting industry expands, more Kenyans continue to visit Google in search of answers to betting tips, football predictions, match analysis and statistics.

The resignation of IEBC Commissioner, Dr. Roselyn Akombe hit the top trending searches after Kenyans woke up to the news that she had resigned from the commission. Dr. Akombe was the fifth trending search after she quit her job exactly a week before the repeat election. In a statement from New York, Dr. Akombe indicated that she had resigned due to “IEBC’s failure to meet the basic expectations of a credible election”.

Sixth on the trending Google searches for the month of October was the Las Vegas shooting. On the night of October 1, 2017, a gunman opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers, leaving 58 people dead and 546 injured. He was later found dead in his room from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The incident is seen to be the deadliest mass shooting committed by an individual in the United States. The event has since reignited the debate about gun laws in the country.

Sharon Mundia, lifestyle blogger, was the seventh trending search on Google. Popularly known as This is Ess, Ms. Mundia was compelled to shrug off claims that her marriage was on the rocks. Rumours that Sharon had been kicked out of her matrimonial home had been fueled by a statement made by a local radio presenter.

Mashujaa Day was the eighth trending item on Google search in October. Mashujaa day, also known as Heroes’ Day is a public holiday to collectively honour all those who contributed towards the struggle for Kenya’s independence or positively contributed in the post-independence Kenya.

Jimi Wanjigi was the most trending personality on the political scene. However, Kenyans seemed more interested in the scene of his wife’s maiden appearance – Irene Nzisa – next  to her husband while he recounted the events of a police siege that took place in their home. The scene was recreated by Kenyans making #WanjigiChallenge memes on Social Media.

The 10th trending search on Google was the demise of popular local comedian, Geoffrey Mwangi commonly known as Kianangi. The comedian was found dead at Witeithie in Thika after going missing for a week.
