Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko discovers 12 infant corpses during impromptu visit to Pumwani Hospital

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko is an angry man after finding 12 infant corpses on Monday, during an impromptu visit at Pumwani Hospital.

In a video he has shared online, we see boxes stacked with management denying knowledge of the same.

The bodies were wrapped together in polythene bags and stuffed in three boxes inside a store.

Dead-body

One box contained one body, another six and another five. The Governor streamed the raid live on his Facebook account.

Sonko visited the facility on a boda boda, catching the management off guard.

He said the visit was prompted by a video he had received showing some members of the administration ferrying bodies from the wards.

He wrote about his visit strongly emphasizing on the need for respect towards the dead.

“Conducting impromptu visit at Pumwani Hospital, where it’s alleged by members of the public that the management shut down the machines at the Maternity Wing, leading to loss of lives of young ones. I want to categorically state that human life must be respected no matter the case. Stern action will be taken against anyone found to be sabotaging the good services offered to our mothers and sisters who come to deliver in this facility.”

Saumu Mbuvi’s Baby Daddy Shows Off His New Catch (Photos)

Benson Gatu, who unsuccessfully vied for the Mathioya parliamentary seat in Murang’a County is seeing someone else a few months after parting ways with Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s daughter Saumu Mbuvi.

Saumu and Gatu have a child together and the mother of one revealed that she and her baby daddy were no longer together, citing infidelity as the reason behind their split.

“I’M TIRED OF WAKING UP EVERY MORNING GETTING DIFFERENT STORIES ABOUT ME ON THeSe CHEAP BLOGS. JUST TO CLEAR THE AIR, I WAS NEVER MARRIED IN THE FIRST PLACE. I’M JUST A WOMAN WHO REALIZED MY WORTH BEFORE IT WAS TOO LATE .YES WE BROKE UP. I’M JUST TOO YOUNG TO GO THROUGH SUCH BULLS**T OF A MAN MOVING FROM ONE POLITICIAN’S DAUGHTER TO ANOTHER FOR HIS SELFISH BENEFIT.

The businessman-cum-politician seems to have a thing for daughters of prominent political families and he’s currently in love with Rachael Wanja, the daughter of Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria, if we are to go by the photos posted on his social media.

Benson Gatu first introduced his new bae online with a photo and captioned;

“Life at times hands you lemons so you can appreciate the sweetness of the best tangerines when handed to you”

 

And the two have been displaying their affection for each other in public and who knows, they might walk down the aisle soon.

The two lovebirds attended an event last weekend and it’s without a doubt that their families also met and bonded. Benson Gatu posted photos of him and Rachael Wanja all looking dashing and their fans can’t wait to see them tie the knot. They’re a perfect match made in heaven.

“Apparently, the best things don’t come with a menu and a price tag. But they would fetch crazy amounts on auction. My artefacts,” he wrote.

Here are photos of Benson Gatui and Rachael Wanja which prove that they’re madly in love with each other.

Rape survivor writes powerful open letter to Mike Sonko

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been the talk of the town barely four months in office. Sonko recently threatened to use Mungiki to rape Embakasi East MP Babu Owino, who allegedly made demeaning comments about President Uhuru.

Well, a Kenyan man by the name Josaya, has written an open letter to Mike Sonko and below is what he had to say;

“Dear Governor Sonko,

I am disturbed by a clip I saw of you threatening to send men to gang-rape Embakasi East MP, Babu Owino.

You were going at him for disrespecting President Uhuru Kenyatta. You were defending your boss.

Gov, you crossed a line any leader should never cross. It was politics, but you turned it into a sick twisted freak show, as you frothed and twisted your hands, demonstrating how your opponent would feel the wrath – and rods – of the said act.

That was not a low blow. Heck, we will need to find another name for that blow. Because? You sunk so low we will need to request petroleum prospectors to help us find where you are at.

Gov, let me tell you why this bothers me. It was business, but you took it personal. Personal because I am a rape “thriver”. (Not a rape survivor).

I am a rape victor: not a rape victim. I was raped in 1983. I was 11-years-old. That ugly accident happened in this beautiful city.

It happened in Makadara Estate, of Makadara Constituency, which you once represented in Parliament.

For about 27 years, I did not speak about it. I never shared it with my family. It ate me up. Tore me up, it did.

But, like Patti La Belle said, “I am here, still here, despite the odds”. Which is why I would love to think that I am thriving despite this traumatic event.

Let me educate you, buddy. The rape was an event. But healing ain’t. It’s a lifelong process. You never really heal from rape. You just take it one day at a time. You take it one emotion at a time.

And when you hear a man threatening he will send a gang on a rape mission, you are taken back to that event.

Emotions get the best of you. You are raped again. You are defiled again. That’s the power of words, Gov.

Strangely, I did not feel sorry for you as much as I did those sickos who were cheering you on.

Rule 93 of the Geneva Convention prohibits rape and other forms of sexual violence in both international and non-international armed conflicts.

Yet you were threatening that you would send goons to rape a supposed enemy, and they found it funny? Some were religious leaders.

Some were parents. “Respectable” people. Yet they did not find your diatribe vile in any way?

Let me break it down for you, Gov. What you spewed was not an empty threat. When you boasted about your – in not-so-many words – you were giving carte blanches to all the rapists in this county.

You were emboldening them. Telling them they can do as they damn well please. That you got their blasted backs.

Here’s the deal. Nobody deserves to be raped; whether they are serial rapists or saints. Nobody deserves to go what I go through.

Nobody deserves to live in fear of rape. Nobody deserves to be robbed of their innocence. Nobody should stagger even a fraction of a mile in these my pinching shoes. Nobody.

Rape is not a revenge weapon. Many kids who are raped blame themselves for what has befallen. They think they were bad, and the rape is their comeuppance.

I have been there, Gov. Still, I would not want the kids of the man who raped me to be raped. I would not wish this on anyone.

And I am sure you would not wish this ill to befall your adopted son, Gift Osinya.

Yours sincerely,

Josaya.”
