REVEALED: President Uhuru postpones paying of dowry

President Uhuru Kenyatta has postponed paying the dowry of his great-grandmother named Musana from Narok after three centuries.

The president wanted to pay the bride price to correct the wrongs his great-grandfather committed in the late 1890s before the Christmas season.

However, the event, which was slated for this month has been pushed forward after Uhuru’s mother, the matriarch of the family, told the family that she won’t be around. Family members said Uhuru will not be in Mombasa during the Christmas season but will also travel to an undisclosed location for a rest. The details of the holiday remain scanty.

Mama Ngina, who is traveling outside the country, will be back in February next year for the historical family event.

“We feel bad it has delayed for more than 300 years but we will definitely honor it,” Uhuru’s cousin Kungu Muigai told the Star on phone.

“We are prepared for the historical event only that things have been coming up.”

Among the things that delayed the event are the busy political schedules for the president after the disputed polls and his diary.

The family members told the Star that he is traveling for a short Christmas holiday to rest after a tough election season.

Multiple sources told the Star that the dowry event will provide a rare moment for the Uhuru families –both close and extended –to meet at the Great Rift Lodge. It is long since the family came together.

“At the event, we will only have 50 people from our side and we also expect 50 from the other side. It is a private family event and we would like to keep politics away,” he said.

The family, with the help of Maasai Council of elders, established that Agikuyu warriors raided the Maasai village known as Naroosura two centuries ago. They stole a herd of cattle and a girl who was later married to Magana and baptised Wanjiru. She gave birth to Kung’u Magana who was the father of former President Jomo Kenyatta, James Muigai and Kung’u Muigai. The former president gave birth to Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta.

“Because President Uhuru was named after his great-grandfather, Muigai, the onus is on him to pay his bride prize,” Uhuru’s cousin Captain (Rtd) Kungu Muigai told the Star in June last year during an exclusive interview.

On the first week of December, all the family members related to Musana were asked to make their schedules flexible this festive season to honour the tradition of paying the dowry. However, it was postponed on Jamuhuri day.

The family believes paying bride price is mandatory regardless of the time it takes to settle the debt.

Uhuru’s cousins, former Gatundu South MP Ngengi Muigai and his brother Kung’u Muigai, as well as Ole Gilisho family in Narok, are working on the final details of the event. Ole Gilisho family is Musana’s relatives.

The Ole Gilisho family has already constructed a manyatta as per the Maasai traditions at their Naroosura home in Narok West sub-county.

The family will meet at the Great Rift Valley Lodge. It was not clear if the event will be held at the Lodge or at the Naroosura village in Narok.

Sources within the family said they will discuss post Uhuru politics and other family issues.

The event comes after Uhuru promised to trace the roots of his great-grandmother to pay the bride price when he ascended to power in 2013.

The Maasai council of elders played a significant role in tracing the roots of the girl and negotiations.

Joseph Kinuthia: You mean the old ones have all been looted???
Julius Matei Moga :I hope on of the notes has an image of a hyena to represent team mafisi.

‘We Were Left With Only One Son And A Hospital Bill Of 11.2m,’ Young Politician Isaac Mwaura Mourns The Death Of His Two Children In Moving Tribute

Kenyans have joined young politician Isaac Mwaura and his wife in condoling over the death of two of their children months after they were welcomed into the world.

According to Mwaura who had welcomed triplets a few months back, the two, a boy and girl died leaving behind a boy.

Mwaura

He broke this news via Facebook in a statement that read in part: “Mukami and I even lost two of our triplets (a boy and a girl) and we were left with only one son and a hospital bill of 11.2 million to clear not forgetting that we were in the middle of party primary campaigns. It was really tough but we kept the faith.”

Baraka Tele! Kenya’s Most Romantic Mp Isaac Mwaura turns 35

The triplets were born in January and the news was celebrated countrywide with Mwaura posting on social media saying “Feeling grateful!!! Mukami and I have been blessed with triplets. This is the best day of our life. Our God is truly faithful.”

 

Beside the sad news, the politician also counted his blessing saying, “Our GOD is faithful and HE plans all in HIS time. How do you explain this…”

Adding, “Exactly a year later on 25th August 2017, President Uhuru Kenyatta has nominated me to the Senate under the Jubilee Party via a Kenya gazette notice. The impossible has happened in the history of Kenya. That in one election 2013, one is nominated by Raila Odinga via ODM in the National Assembly and in the next election 2017, the same person is nominated by President Uhuru Kenyatta under a different party, Jubilee in the Senate.”

Isaac Mwaura and Mukami

He continued, “This is the making of the LORD and HE looks at us deeply. HE and only HE knows the intentions of our hearts. HE makes a way where there seems to be no way. HE lifts and exalts HIS own and HIS word shall surely come to pass.
For in His TIME, HE makes all things beautiful. How else would you explain this coincidence? There is a GOD in heaven and I know He never lets down HIS own. Lets learn to trust and believe in HIM and never ever give up even when there is evidence to the contrary. HE gives favour to whom He so desires for HIS promises are yeah and amen!! Thanks to all those who have believed in me and who have prayed for and with me. #PrayersWork.”

Isaac Mwaura and Mukami

 

Here are some reactions from Kenyans online.

Senior Chaplain Mulyungi: You are destined for great things coz thou have made Christ, the rock of ages as your stronghold.

Ruth Onesmus: This brought mixed tears in my eyes 1. Tears of sorry for the loss of the two babies and the huge hospital bill at hospital. 2. Tears of joy because of what the Lord did to you. You’ve encouraged me so so much. My president is the best,he never for gets the people who stand with him.

Ken Okoth: The loss of your boy and girl broke my heart. All else aside, may God take care of your family.

Rose Owuor: I love the Lord for who He is and what He does. Thank you for this testimony. We shall overcome the enemy by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony. May the good Lord repay you like He did to job. God bless you sir. And bless the President for doing this. I am inspired ….

Joseph Ndegwa: Grief is not easy. No way one prepares us to handle the loss of a child, it is painful more for a mother and coming at a time when a spouse is away in campaigns. I feel your pain Isaac and my sister in law, Mukami. It is sad that I didn’t get to deliver the baby gift items I had bought for our little angels at Burlington Store in New York. When I was finally told of what had happened, how long Mukami and the babies stayed in hospital, the emotional trauma you went through and the financial challenges that came with it, I new it would have been insensitive of me to come over with the items during that period of loss. Mwenyezi Mungu aliye juu atawarehemu na baraka zake ni tele. Hold onto that faith. Keep believing in God and His will for you and your family.

That aside, congratulations on your nomination to the Senate. Your statement on this post is what I call celebration in HUMILITY and ask all Kenyans to do so. Kongole ndugu Mwaura. God Bless You.

Daring thugs killed after stealing at funeral service attended by Uhuru

Two daring thugs, who broke into a vehicle at a burial attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta, were shot dead by police in Karen.

Police recovered a Ceska pistol and a laptop from the slain robbers.

The two smartly dressed men had disguised themselves as mourners at the funeral of former PCEA moderator John Gatu.

Hundreds of mourners attended the church service at PCEA Muteero Church in Karen last Friday.

The thugs were in black suits and were spotted moving around the parking yard, where mourners had packed their vehicles.

With the President in attendance, dozens of police officers, including the elite Recce Squad members, were deployed strategically at the church and in the vicinity.

Police said the two men unsuccessfully tried to unlock a vehicle, but the car’s alarm went off, drawing the attention of plainclothes officers.

After a few minutes, the two men were seen fleeing from the parking with a laptop and one shot at police officers. They were shot as they fled.

Cases of theft of motor vehicles have been reported during presidential functions.

In February, two Probox vehicles were reported stolen from the parking yard during a police pass out parade at the Kenya Police College, Kiganjo.

The President was at the function and as such, it is expected that the security should be very tight.

Kenyan Boy Band Sauti Sol Send Out A Sincere APOLOGY To President Uhuru Kenyatta After This Happened (PHOTO)

Kenya’s top boy band Sauti Sol have over the years proved to be the best in the game after a successful musical career since it’s formation back in 2005.

The BET nominess may however might have found themselves on the wrong side of the government after their lead vocalist Bein Aime Baraza shared his views on a recent project launched by the government, dubbed Studio Mashinani.

According to Bien, the group were the initial brains behind the major project which was launched a few days ago by renowned Jamaican stars, Etana, Richie Spice and Luciano.

Sauti Sol

Studio Mashinani was launched by the Ministry of ICT to provide modern recording facilities for talented youth to record their music and other creative products in terms of entertainment, film or showbiz.

According to Bien, the group had presented the idea to President Uhuru Kenyatta back in December 2015 as a way of introducing music studios, community radio, ICT Centers and Libraries with the spirit of community service.

They were further instructed to give the project to former YouthFund Chair, Bruce Odhiambo and together with other industry players, they embarked on the logistics and then sent the proposal to the involved parties.

On December 29 2015 I had the honor to meet with His Excellency The President in Statehouse Mombasa. The agenda was Kenya Music Industry and Youth. Myself and my @sautisol brothers shared a proposal called STUDIO MASHINANI with His Excellency. It was an extensive project involving Music studios, community radio, ICT Centers and Libraries with the spirit of community service. We were further instructed to give the proposal to Bruce Odhiambo who was at the time Chair of the Youthfund office. We teamed up with Raphael Obonyo @raph_obonyo Cedric Kadenyi tighten the whole proposal with budgets and standard operating systems for the project. The Proposal was sent to the relevant parties. Only to wake up today a year and some months later to see the project being launched countrywide by a JAMAICAN ARTIST!!!!!! NOT EVEN A KENYAN!!!!!I am not in any way implying that The President has a hand in this because he deals with millions of things and this may just be one of those that he delegated. I feel so robbed. I plan to make everything public soon. Just so that the ones who want to can learn from it.”

bien1

Bien’s rant elicited mixed reactions from fans and fellow musicians, who rallied behind him, but now, it looks like his voice was finally heard as it turns out that the band is in talks with the State over the Sh80 Million project.

But first, Sauti Sol had to apologize for any offensive remarks Bien had made about the government and more so, President Uhuru Kenyatta. Check out the press statement below.
