Uhuru shockingly discloses that one of his son’s broke Covid-19 curfew orders

Yesterday Uhuru Kenyatta stunned the nation when he opened up about an incident where his son snuck out of home at night, defying curfew orders while in Mombasa.

Speaking during an interview with NTV, Uhuru explained that his mother, Mama Ngina, wife, Margaret Kenyatta and the unidentified son were confined in Mombasa when he first announced the cessation of movement when his son decided to sneak out of their facility at night.

“I have a young man who was travelling with his mother and were caught up by the cessation of movement in Mombasa and because of these rules, he found he cannot move,” explained Uhuru.

That action was met with swift rebuke by the Head of State who explained the folly of his behaviour.

“I asked him a personal question after it was reported to me that he had done that. I asked him ‘Fine, you have gone out, had your fun and enjoyed yourself but now you have come back and you are with your grandmother.

“Your grandmother is 80 plus years. If something happens to your grandmother as a result of what you have done, how would you live with yourself?” Questioned the president.

“I told him it is not about me, it is about how you will live with yourself,” he added.

The aim of the president’s story was a reiteration that the youth should follow government instructions;

“It is not about what the government is telling you to do, it is not about what the president or the minister of health is telling you to do,” he added.

The situation has grown dire considering that the youth make up 75 per cent of the population and have been classified as super-spreaders of the disease.

Uhuru and the beggar: Kenya’s problems in one photo

A viral photo of President Uhuru Kenyatta driving his G-Wagon on the streets of Nairobi has drawn a lot of interest from the citizenry.

In the photo, one can see a woman that looks like a beggar, trying to speak to the president. While some said how rare it was to see the President stuck in traffic, others wondered whether it was stage managed.

Uhuru on the streets

Another angle of the president driving himselfWhile I don’t know if it was, my problem is with the optics of the image. That photo encapsulates the issues Kenya has. The photo contrasts the lives of the rich and famous vis-a-vis the poor in our country.

The president, the senior most figure we have in this country, with wealth and power, coming face to face with his extreme opposite, lack.

The head of state in a luxury vehicle that costs upwards of Sh10-15 million at the base price, while a woman begs with the shuka she has on her back, that costs Sh150.

The president rumoured to be driving for a nyama choma at Maasai lodge on a casual Sunday while his fellow citizen begs on that same Sunday.

I believe the photo should be not be seen as a triumph but as a big problem. A miscarriage in shaping the hopes and dreams of the proletariat into something concrete and noble.

Recent economic reports paint a worrying picture of the problems the country is facing. These include a weakened real estate sector, a credit market making it nearly impossible for small businesses to borrow and a state that is in more debt than that beggar herself! 

In summary, that photo is not a celebration of Kenya’s successes.

Where Uhuru and his wife spent their Christmas Eve (photos)

While many wouldn’t be caught dead in a church on Christmas Eve, President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta spent theirs in Mombasa.

Uhuru and wife welcomed with the most fascinating ritual in Russia

Uhuru Kenyatta has taken the term the travelling president to a whole other level as the politician has been out and about the last two weeks.

Travelling that has seen him open the SGR in Suswa to hosting Mashujaa Day celebrations in Mombasa, to heading to the Japanese empires coronation to heading to Russia for the inaugural Russia-Africa Summit. He did all that in less than 2 weeks! I even got fatigued writing that!

But this isn’t what the article is about. On his travels, the president must have got some interesting stories to tell and Russia will be no different as their manner of welcoming a guest of honour is noteworthy.

On arrival, Uhuru was received at Sochi International Airport by senior Russian Government officials and the Kenyan Chargé D’Affaires, in Moscow, Winnie Mwanjala.

This is where it got interesting as Mr. Kenyatta and his wife were treated to one of the oldest Russian traditions – the Bread and Salt welcome Ceremony.

The tradition originated as a folk custom in western Russia. Bread in Russia symbolizes abundance and wealth. Funny thing, just like in the Bible!

Uhuru Kenyatta’s watch costs twice as much as a 2019 Range Rover!

The ceremony is held when welcoming important, respected or admired guests. Young women donning traditional costumes present the loaf of bread placed on a rushnik (embroidered towel).  The “Bread and Salt” is a form of specially baked round bread with a salt shaker placed on top of the bread


‘A salt holder or a salt cellar is placed on top of the bread loaf or secured in a hole on the top of the loaf. If you are presented with a “Bread and Salt”, you should help yourself for sure: you need to break off a piece of bread, dip it in salt and eat it with a smile. You should not refuse, or the host would get greatly offended.’

Uhuru Kenyatta’s watch costs twice as much as a 2019 Range Rover!

Uhuru Kenyatta is not only the 4th president of Kenya. He is also the son of extreme wealth being the son of Kenya’s first president, Jomo Kenyatta.

Marriage magic! From Uhuru to Raila, politicians married for over 25 years

The Kenyatta family is probably the wealthiest family in Kenya, a claim that they neither will confirm nor deny. But the lives they live tell a story of a family that sh!ts and eats money! Hehehe!

President Uhuru Kenyatta on his wedding day-
President Uhuru Kenyatta on his wedding day-

Our president was recently spotted donning a 2016 A.Lange and Sohne datograph perpetual tourbillon. The description of the watch according to the their website says;

This model was introduced in 2016. The dial is crafted from solid silver and graced with solid-gold appliques and hour markers. The hands are made of rhodiumed gold and blued steel. The hour and minute hands, as well as the hour markers at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock, are luminous.


The recommended retail price is 298.000 € – That is Sh. 34,516,609! The 2019 Range Rover’s base price sits right around $89,000 (Sh.9,239,090.00), making it one of the most expensive luxury large SUVs. Things are even more pronounced at the high end of the lineup, where the SVAutobiography Dynamic trim sports a starting price of about $177,000 (Sh.18,374,370).


This isn’t the first time that our humble president has been spotted wearing such an expensive time-piece. While just one of Uhuru’s watch costs as much as buying a plot developing it, most Kenyans can only afford to look at the timepieces through internet images.

Rose Muhando’s political song sparks reaction from Maina and Kingangi



Rose Muhando is back in the news and causes all sorts of storm in the country.

The singer has released a song praising President Uhuru and Kenyans for standing by her.

‘I don’t know if Rose Muhando is abusing drugs!’ Gospel star Stephen Kasolo confesses

The song dubbed shukran Uhuru is trending and it’s not too shabby according to the Classic 105 hosts.

Maina responded saying

Aki Tanzanian, you know these guys they know how to praise. You know when Harmonize released that cover for Kwangwaru, now he is Magufuli’s favorite artist. Hima nd Sauti Sol. You cannot tell Magufuli anything else, And he is making money like you can’t believe 

I must say I love the melody on this one. Good job Rose Muhando

Mwalimu Kingangi recalled other musicians who have ever sang for politicians including former President Moi saying

Moi ni mwingine, he was sang for all sorts of songs from Primary everyone sang for him 

Maina chimed in with a laugh saying

It must feel so good being praised

KOT have also shared their thoughts on the song with comments below


Atleast Rose Muhando knows what Kenya has done for her, unlike some other people in Somalia filled with greed


Many of us would give anything to up and leave our beloved country, citing many negativities, then comes Rose Muhando singing all praises and gratitude to the president, the country and its folks at large and waa, something to ponder on right there.

Rose Muhando breaks silence to tell fans ‘all is well’



Rose Muhando in her song “Uhuru” joins the long list of foreigners who unconditionally Love Kenya. I wonder where we derive the perennial self-hate. Europeans, Asians, Americans, and even Africans are choosing Kenya as their retirement destination. Lets learn to LOVE our country.



Kenyans after bearing a song by Rose Muhando praising President Uhuru and wishing blessings upon his family. She should have left Uhuru out of that song, otherwise it’s a good song.


People might have divided opinion about that Rose Muhando song, personally, it’s the best song I have heard from her. The execution was just on point 👌👏

Rose Muhando bounces back from rehab



Have you ever taken time to thank and appreciate those who have stood with you and made you who you are today.

Maybe Rose Muhando should be considered for


If Rose Muhando can refix that Uhuru song and remove the name Uhuru, That song will be our second national Anthem #KOTLoyals


So Rose Muhando decided to sing a song in praise of your president….I’m sure religious 🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜 and their radio stations are very happy.

Uhuru attends Mugabe funeral as burial stalemate resolved (images)

Uhuru Kenyatta attended the funeral of late Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe to pay his last respects. The Kenyan president eulogised the deceased ex-commander in chief as an icon of Africa’s liberation struggle.

Uhuru said of the late leader in his speech,

The late comrade Mugabe was an embodiment of the pan-African spirit, offering immeasurable assistance and solidarity to many other African countries in their struggles to end colonial rule and apartheid.

Other presidents in attendance were South Africa’s Cyril Ramaphosa and his Equatorial Guinea counterpart Theodore Obiang Nguema, besides the host president Emerson Mnangagwa. Former presidents Sam Nujoma of Namibia and Jerry Rawlings from Ghana also graced the funeral service of their departed colleague.

Far from the colourful speeches from African leaders, it was impossible to ignore the embarrassingly low turnout of citizens at the Zimbabwe National Sports Stadium where the funeral service was held.

Mugabe was the president of Zimbabwe for 37 years from 1980 to 2017 when he was ousted following a military coup. He died on Friday, September 6, aged 95 after a long illness. He passed on in Singapore where he had been receiving treatment since April 2019.



The family of the late president say that he will be buried in the National Heroes Acre monument in Harare, his family says, following a row with the government over his final resting site.

Rich kid Anerlisa begs Uhuru to help her billionaire parents

Anerlisa Muigai’s world is in the throes of distress. The cause of the normally bubbly Keroche heiress’ emotional state is the news that her parents are been investigated for tax evasion by the government.

This state has forced the Nero Water CEO to appeal to a helping hand and none other than from the main man himself, President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Has she worn pampers!? Anerlisa shamed for ‘weight’ gain

Anerlisa’s appeal came moments after Ms Karanja and her husband, Joseph Karanja, were arrested on Thursday afternoon. DCI officers nabbed the couple, together with the company’s board members, at the gate of their factory in Naivasha.

Miss Muigai penned her message to the president asking him to protect her family as they are entrepreneurs.

Her message is below;

Dear Our President (Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta)

I am writing in regards to our local entrepreneurs. I am humbly requesting you to intervene and help/protect us all in businesses. We chose you as our President. Every day our local entrepreneurs are being fought. We trust and believe that you will do something about it. Thank You. #BuyKenya #BuildKenya #

The message was met with mixed reactions from her followers with some telling her that it was karma for those who voted for Uhuru’s government at the polls. They told her to pray that her parents should pay their fair share of taxes as Kenyans are doing themselves.

Others urged her to stand strong and bemoaned the fact that the ‘greedy’ government was going for entrepreneurs.

Funny thing is I don’t think Anerlisa will have much help from the Head-of-State.

Uhuru Kenyatta and Jeff Koinange meet their high school teacher after 35 years!

Uhuru Kenyatta has one of the widest smiles you will ever see. That is likely why his face makes some of the best memes you will ever find on the internet.

The news was shared by his distant cousin Jeff Koinange who showed off the pictures on his Instagram page.

Uhuru Kenyatta has been in the Caribean island of Jamaica. What has the most hardworking, enterprising and dedicated president in Africa been doing in the country where many people get irie?

Well, Mr. Kenyatta was on an official 3-day state visit to the birthplace of reggae and its most famous export Bob Marley. Apart from the formal and boring business that happens on a state visit, Uhuru had some stunning revelation to make.

The fourth president declared that he had relatives that came from the island, saying;

My wife’s brother’s mother is from Jamaica. We affirm the Jamaican diaspora is everywhere and the prime minister was wondering whether we have some in Kenya. In deed I can confirm given the fact my wife’s brother’s mother comes from Jamaica and she lives in Kenya.

Many Kenyans wondered why the president hadn’t referred to the relative as his mother-in-law since the said person was his wife’s brother’s mother.

True to netizens insight, it appears the president had a slip of the tongue as we have discovered that the mother to the wife of Uhuru’s brother, Muhoho Kenyatta, is the link between the Kenyatta’s family and Jamaica.

Mama Norma Florienta Kanja who died on Wednesday, August 16, 2018, was mother-in-law to President Kenyatta’s younger brother, Muhoho.

Uhuru secret note to Gideon Moi gets hilarious reactions from Kenyans

Uhuru Kenyatta is a president who might be remembered more for the memorable memes that his face makes than for what he did for Kenya.

Uhuru Kenyatta

Moving on swiftly,  a new meme might just have started after a video emerged of the president scribbling something on a note then passing it to Baringo Senator, Gideon Moi.

Despite the contents of the note being secret, the reaction by the Baringo Senator made it clear that Uhuru sent him something hilarious.

Gideon couldn’t contain himself as he laughed as Uhuru looked on at him cheekily.

Check out the video below;

What he was writing is the subject of speculation and many Kenyans are trying to work out the message he wrote for Gideon.

Some speculated that he wrote, the now popular term, ‘Wamlambez’ on the note. If you don’t know what that means, Google is your friend.

And guess what, Kenyans have a knack for coming up with some of the most hilarious things to say and this one was not any different. Some of the speculations from Kenyans is below;
Sheilah Birgen I swear this man is spesho! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤣🤣🤣🤣

Collymore’s ‘boys club’ keeps request Uhuru asked them

Bob Collymore had kept a special and rare whiskey in place for President Uhuru Kenyatta. During Collymore’s memorial service, Uhuru said he was disappointed he did not get time to return to Collymore’s house to collect that ‘special gift’.

That gift it transpired was bottle number 138 of Johnie Walker Directors Blend. According to Diageo’s website, the whiskey edition was released in 2010 and given exclusively to Diageo directors.

The drink containing 46 percent alcohol volume is packaged in 700 ml bottle that retails at Sh 460,000. He told Collymore’s boy’s club at the memorial service;

I was supposed to have gone back to collect my gift reserved for a special friend from Bob and so Peter Kenneth, Oigara and crew, you will pay. That did not belong to you.

The boy’s club took the admonition to heart and have been able to get the bottle. Former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth on Sunday revealed that the ‘boyz club’ has scoured the world for the bottle.

Details about the 130 year old gift Bob Collymore owed President Uhuru

He said that they were able to find the last bottle available globally of the exclusive whiskey Uhuru missed from the late Collymore.

The revelation was made during a memorial service of Kenneth’s mother at his home in Loresho on Sunday. According to the Star, the bottle has been shipped by special courier from Amsterdam for the President.

A member of the club called it “an unbelievable stroke of luck to find it, but suffice to say, Bob may have helped from high up!

Where has your hair gone to? Kenyans curious about Joho’s hairstyle

Ali Hassan Joho is one of the most stylish politicians…nay people in Kenya. The governor’s tastes may be flamboyant but yet they are not gaudy.

Governor Ali Hassan Joho

And keeping with his fashionable ways the good governor does not frown on the wonders of a good haircut or a great barber to boot. He admitted earlier this year that he pays his Congolese barber an eye-watering 10k for a single hair cut!

And the godly barber’s results were plain for all to see with many amazed that the governor’s once receding patch was now a thing of the past.

But it seems like the magic was temporary as a patch can be seen forming again. This was spotted by curious Kenyans when Joho gave Uhuru Kenyatta a tour of his county yesterday. The pictures showed a rear view of the governors head with part of his hair falling off.

‘I’ve given up. Just take care of Wambui and my kids’ – Bob Collymore told Uhuru

Bob Collymore has been the by-word on many people’s lips and that is understandable. One person who spoke about him at his memorial service was President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Uhuru Kenyatta

Uhuru and Collymore were closer than most Kenyans were aware of. The two met barely a week before the late CEO’s demise and had a 4-hour conversation.

In that tête-à-tête, the two spoke about the future of Kenya as well as the telecommunications company. Bob also relayed news of his impending death.

Bob-Collymore smiling

Though the 61-year-old corporate titan put up a brave face knowing the clock was ticking, he requested Uhuru to take care of his widow Wambui Kamiru and children.

The head of state also remembered a promise that Bob had given him during the heart-to-heart. Uhuru recalled Bob’s words;

I’m going to break a promise I made to you over a year ago. I don’t think I have more than a couple of weeks to go. I’ve given up, I’ve tried everything and I have accepted my time has come. My chapter is closed. You cannot do anything for me, I have sorted my life and issues, just take care of Wambui and my kids.

William Ruto also spoke about the late visionary leader in glowing terms. He said

When you met Bob, he behaved and interacted with you as if he was going to live forever, it was quite a paradox and goes to demonstrate his life well lived.

The deceased was confirmed dead at his Nairobi home on Monday morning after losing his battle to Acute Myeloid Leukemia. His remains were cremated at Kariokor crematorium a day later.

Peter Kenneth relates how Uhuru Interrupted Bob Collymore’s holiday

As the days pass we learn more and more about the late Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore. What is becoming clear is that the man had a big heart and that most people who encountered him were normally spellbound by the man he was.

Yesterday on Jeff Koinange’s show, JKL Live, the boy’s club as they were known reminisced about their lives with him. That Boy’s club included former presidential aspirant Peter Kenneth, Alykhan Satchu, Patrick Quarcoo, Bharat Thakrar, Nic Hailey, Joshua Oigara and Jeff Koinange himself.

Peter remembered how President Uhuru Kenyatta interrupted both of them during a trip they had taken to the coast. Peter recalled that Bob had picked him up in Nairobi and they both flew to Lamu on a helicopter that Bob himself was controlling.

When they landed they boarded a boat to take them around Manda Island and while they were sailing, Bob received a call that halted proceedings.

Peter told Jeff;

He goes to a corner of the boat, and he’s in this very tight conversation looking serious so I ask him what’s wrong with you we didn’t come here for phone calls and he says ‘Shhhhh’.

Peter went on to say that the conversation went on for 25 minutes more minutes with them unaware that Bob was speaking to the president during that whole time. He told Jeff;

So one day I’m going to tell President Uhuru he called Bob in my presence at that boat.

Despite Uhuru not being a member of Bob’s boys’ club the two clearly enjoyed a special friendship. Apparently, a day before the late CEO told his boy’s club about his impending demise to his friends Uhuru had visited Bob at his Kitisuru home where they spent time together.


Bob’s memorial will be conducted on Thursday at the All Saints Cathedral, Nairobi where President Uhuru is expected to attend and shed more light on his relationship with the departed corporate titan.

Blessings: Sonko’s adopted son joins Uhuru Kenyatta’s high school

He grabbed national attention when his brother saved him from a terrorist attack in 2014, Likoni church in Mombasa.

Baby Satrin as we would later come to know his name was soon after the tragic incidence, adopted by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

The Governor and his wife Primrose have been updating us on the progress of the young boy, and now we know thanks to the first lady that he is joining a prestigious school.

Osinya has joined class one at the St Mary’s School, where President Kenyatta also attended.

First Lady Primrose updated on his school admission saying;

Baby Osinya is growing into a fine lad and has gained admission as a class one pupil at St. Mary’s School; a boys catholic institution. The school is known to have been an institution of learning to many high profile individuals in Kenya including H.E Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta.

She keeps away from the public, but what we do know is that President Uhuru’s sister Ann is simply stunning.

Ann was spotted in South Africa this past weekend, where she attended the Global Citizen festival.

She was spotted speaking to the First Lady of South Africa Dr Tshepo Motsepe at the FNB Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg.
