“My bosses did not want me to interview President Uhuru” Jacque Maribe narrates

Jacque Maribe made headlines when she interviewed President Uhuru Kenyatta after he won the 2013 general election.

The former Citizen TV senior political reporter in an interview with True Love’s Caroline Mandi, said that the president called her to interview him but all didn’t go well with her bosses.

“I was expecting and thinking immediately after we got from campaigns you get some time off and you’re like I’ve worked too hard who am I working for? let me get a baby,” she said.

Jacque added that she was new in the media industry and her bosses did not support her ambition to cover politics.

“It was my last assignment before I proceeded on my maternity leave when I got a call and I’m told “hi, haven’t been seeing you in a while so I hear good things are coming then come interview before you go”‘. He has my mobile number and it was bittersweet. It was good yes because it was a good working relationship but it was difficult because I have bosses and everybody was like, why her?

Jacque said that after sharing the good news, her bosses wanted someone else to handle it and not her.

“It was tough” Jacque Maribe opens up about suffering two miscarriages

“When I went to tell my boss I had been offered the first-ever interview by the president, it was hard. like why you? and I remember being told “its okay, that’s good someone else will do it”. I got angry and I was like why, is it because I’m a woman is it because I’m heavy and so you think I’m not up to the task…why?’ It brought a bit of tension because later I got back to the president and tell him, unfortunately, I’m not the one who’s going to do it and then he said “there’s no interview,” she said.
“It was that bad and what that did for me was getting the maiden interview and so heavy at that point and saying that I can’t do it someone else has to do it and in fact it’s a man who has to do it and him saying “no, if you’re not the one doing it then there’s going to be no interview.’


“That ship has sailed” Jackie Maribe tells Eric Omondi about dating again

“I finally opened up and got to a realisation that wait there are people who recognises us now as strong abled women in a world full of sharks, a pack of wolves which is called politics…you do it. why does it have to be somebody else and especially a man?
Long story cut short, they both went for the interview and little did she know that was going to be her breakthrough.

“I did my part of the interview and my colleague did his and we moved on from there and I kept now doing all the subsequent interviews after that.”

Jacque has since left the mainstream media and is currently running her online political show ‘The Hot Seat’.

‘People ask me for handouts’ President Uhuru’s ‘look-alike’ speaks after going viral

Michael Njogo Gitonga alias ‘Uhunye’, a resident of Umoja has left everyone talking after his striking resemblance with President Uhuru photos were shared online.

The father of three says that people mistake him for president Uhuru Kenyatta and often hides his face with a face mask as people always ask for handouts.

He is nicknamed ‘Uhunye’ by his neighbours in Umoja.

Speaking in an interview with Inooro TV, Njogo says he enjoys the fame but it has cost him much.

“Kwanza siwezi enda Githurai. labda nivae mavitu. I cannot walk out of this estate without people asking me for handouts, I have suffered with this name,” he said.

He said that the striking resemblance to that of president Uhuru “confuses” him too.

“It confuses me because I’m confused as to why I look like President Kenyatta, it is very unusual,” said Njogo.

The mason by profession explained that he has never come close to Uhuru or his family.

He says that his mother once worked in Gatundu as a security officer.

“My dad loved me so much, tulikua tunaenda na yeye kila mahali,” he said adding that he is the bread winner in his family.

If he had a moment with the President Njogo says he would ask him if they are brothers.

Njogo also noted that the coronavirus pandemic has affected his source of income as a local bar where he worked suspended operations as the government imposed strict measures to curb the spread of the virus.

Here are five fashion statements that President Uhuru spends his millions on – List

Unlike most Presidents, Kenya’s very own Uhuru Kenyatta has set the record higher for other head of states when it comes to fashion.

So far, The commander-in-chief has shown that apart from politics, he has the best taste when it comes to his fashion sense.

Before he was re-elected. President Uhuru stepped out wearing a designer shirt with the theme colour of his party Jubilee. At the time, he was campaigning for re-election.

The head of state wore a white silk shirt which had some embroidery on the shoulder and around the hands.


Carol Pulei, a Kenyan designer was glad to be associated with the making of the shirt.

Pulei said it was such an honour that Uhuru chose to wear it to such an important function.

This is not the only eye-catchy shirt Mr.President has attracted attention with. Below are others that we think made it to the top of the list.



The president doesn’t wear cheap hand wears. He is that guy with a taste of good jewellery and watches are part of it.

Uhuru’s father Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, who was the founding President, and retired President Daniel Arap Moi wore the ceremonial gear on national holidays.

However, retired President Mwai Kibaki never wore it.

Open Letter To My President, His Excellency The President Of The Republic Of Kenya And Commander In Chief Of Kenya Defence Forces.

Apollo further adds that at some point his salary was stopped and he is a struggling man.

Having grown up in the area I was marked by some elements sympathetic to the sect.

I was later transferred to the very area that led to simultaneous attacks between the year 2013-2016.

While recapulating my salary was unlawfully stopped but later reinstated and arrears paid with subsequent attachment at Jogoo House Legal Office. Only to be ordered back to Muranga.

Your excellency the compensation that was meant for the injuries was stopped midway and my salary was suspended again 9 month ago, causing immense pain and suffering.

Kenyans on Twitter demand to know president Kenyatta’s whereabouts

Kenyans on Saturday took to Twitter to demand answers on President Uhuru Kenyatta’s whereabouts.

Uhuru has not been seen in the public eye for two weeks since he departed the country for China to secure various trade deals.

Apart from securing an avocado deal with the Chinese, Uhuru witnessed the signing of two project delivery agreements totalling to Sh67.5 billion through concessional financing and Public Private Partnership (PPP).

Using the hashtag #FindPresidentUhuru, KOT in their typical satirical norm created funny memes while others tried to guess the reasons why the Head of State has been missing in action for a fortnight.

“First, he deleted ALL his social media pages and then left Kenya for China to borrow some mulla & that’s how our President went MISSING! Where is Uhuru Kenyatta?” @SueKE254 wrote.

“Why should we #FindPresidentUhuru We have been ok without him. I hope China are holding him until we repay the loan,” @MbuthiaAmina said.

Political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi wrote, “SILENCE annoys EVEN the DEVIL. Leading Kenyans is like HERDING needy Cats. Uhuru should GIVE them the CONTEMPT CARD.”

“Maybe the President is hidden in some local Pub pale around Juja Boys. The President with those guys there have same characteristics,” @theImwene tweeted.

@ItsMutai tweeted, “President Uhuru Kenyatta is missing since he left China. No one has a clear record of him appearing in public. If you can see this tweet, retweet to help #FindPresidentUhuru. KENYANS should never go 24hrs or beyond not knowing where their president is. Umemwona mahali? Tell us.”

“His brother Raila should confirm to us our president didn’t returned back as counterfeit.I don’t trust these Chinese people, never,” wrote  @MoyalePundit.

@opiyok87 wrote, “Missing President!! NAME: Uhuru Kenyatta AGE: 56 years. OCCUPATION: President Of the Republic Of Kenya. -He Speaks Pure Swahili, English, Chinese & Sheng -Last SEEN: 9:59:59 PM Around Hong-Kong And Macau Cities In China Report to the nearest Kenyan!”

Sometimes we argue…. Uhuru Kenyatta talks on marriage

President Uhuru Kenyatta is loved by many for his laid back nature but most of all he is loved for his commitment to family.The father of three loves family.

He rarely talks about marriage and when he does  only words of wisdom flow out of his mouth.

In one of his posts on social media he poses

Can you imagine if you woke up every day and agreed with everything your wife said, and your wife agreed with everything you said.

Wouldn’t that be a very boring life?

Tulikosea wapi: Kenyans whose wedding was graced by President Uhuru Kenyatta (List)


He added that unlike what many people think, arguments are healthy in a relationship.

 It is good some times when we argue because it makes you think. ‘Why did she do that this morning? why did he do that this morning?

Commander-in-love: Photos that prove President Uhuru Kenyatta is a natural romantic

Speaking about marriage in a past event where he was attending the wedding of  Governor Kiraitu Murungi’s daughter, Uhuru urged young people to intermarry in order to help Kenya become more cohesive.

We celebrate the coming together of our people. This generation is doing tremendous things because they do not see barriers between them. 

They see the person they went to school with, and the person they work with. That is who they respect.

That is who they fall in love with and marry.

‘Going with your riches to the grave won’t do you any good” – Fake ‘Uhuru’

The news of Joseph Waswa impersonating Uhuru Kenyatta and conning a businessman of Ksh 80 million has left many wondering how daring he can be.

The man, who is not new to controversy, has set minds jogging with many wondering how much guts one needs to execute such a mission.

He is loved for his philanthropy and going by a past post below it is easy to understand why he does what he does so effortlessly

“Greater things are achieved when u set u set ur mind, wake up and go after ur goals. No matter how much u fall, stand up, bcoz I don’t think going with ur riches to the grave will not do you any gud.”

Akothee warns daughters against getting pregnant for a celebrity

Here are more motivational quotes from him to his fans which we feel would actually be of help to him as he goes through this rough patch.

“Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved.

It is a type of confidence, And it is fragile. It can be blackened by fear and superstition.”

Have a great day all.

Another says

“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”

Uhuru Kenyatta impersonator had been charged with murder before

Joseph Waswa has been the name on everyone’s lips for being among the seven people who conned a business of millions while impersonating Uhuru Kenyatta.

He might pass as an ordinary Kenyan, but he is not. According to the Star, Waswa  runs charity initiatives and owns a fleet of four choppers and enjoys the high life.

He seems every inch the big-hearted philanthropist. Not any more.

Shock in Eldoret as man hacks wife to death and burns her body

Here are things that prove that Waswa is not new to controversy.

1. He is a philanthropist through the Lendrix Foundation and generous handouts.

2. Waswa has donated millions of shillings to construct schools across Bungoma county.

3. Landed with 4 helicopters for the dowry payment function of his wife

In December 2017,  he landed with four helicopters to pay dowry for his wife.

This was no ordinary ceremony in the village, Waswa and his fiancée Maureen Tabitha exchanged rings estimated to have cost around Sh1.6 million in what left villagers reeling in shock.

Many could not fathom what the bride price must have been, but it is believed that tens of millions of shillings were paid.

Among the high and mighty who attended the event were MPs Charles Nguna (Mwingi West), Babu Owino (Embakasi East), Caleb Amisi (Saboti) and Alfred Keter (Nandi Hills).

A fleet of high-end, V-8 vehicles were on standby to pick the guests from a playing field, home of the bride to be.



4. Offered a helicopter ride to a man who had hung on a flying helicopter

In 2016, Waswa had shocked villagers and the whole of Bungoma county when he offered a helicopter ride to a man who had hung onto a flying helicopter.

Saleh Wanjala, 41, had hung onto the chopper from the Posta Grounds to the Bungoma Airstrip, where he jumped off as the aircraft descended. It was carrying the body of slain businessman Jacob Juma. Wanjala came to be known as the James Bond of Bungoma.

He got a free flight to Nairobi courtesy of Waswa.

5. Arrested for murder

In 2014, Waswa was arrested and arraigned at the Bungoma High Court on charges of murdering Mombasa University student Mitch Barasa Kibiti.

The slain student was the son of a former Bungoma chief officer David Kibiti.

The court heard that Waswa shot dead Mitch at his hotel in Kimilili while he was celebrating his birthday with friends.

Residents later torched Waswa’s Etonia Hotel in Kimilili.

Waswa was represented by top lawyers, including PLO Lumumba and Cliff Ombeta.

The case is still underway after ballistics reports indicated that the murder weapon was not Waswa’s.

Joseph Waswa

In his drama-laden life, Waswa, always accompanied by security guards, was ambushed by Flying Squad officers over alleged threats to the victim’s family.


Trouble started when police rearrested Waswa who had just finished the hearing of his murder case.

There was more drama when police and the DPP exchanged bitterly over an alleged bribe from Waswa.

Police accused John Oyimbo representing the DPP of taking a bribe from Waswa.

Police claimed Oyimbo took off of with the prosecution file when they were about to charge Waswa for failing to submit his firearm license that had been cancelled.

Oyimbo had been earlier dropped from representing the DPP in the murder case after Kibiti’s family complained of ineffectiveness and aiding the suspect.

Last year, Waswa was again mentioned in connection with how retired judge Philip Ransley was involved in money business.

The former judge had allegedly transferred millions of shillings of his clients’ money to individuals’ accounts.

On June 17, 2015, he allegedly transferred Sh57 million by swift transfer from an account at Chase Bank Riverside branch to Joseph Lendrix Waswa.

It is not clear if the name of this account is associated with the politician, even if the names appear similar.

Ransley, who is wanted by the Director of Public Prosecutions to face charges of embezzling funds, has since fled to England.

Kenya has been seeking Ransley’s extradition from London for stealing Sh255 million of client funds belonging to Rowland Minns and Angela Scott.

On December 12, 2018, Ransley failed to show up in Westminster magistrates court where he was fighting his extradition case.

His barrister Malcolm Hawkes said that the retired judge was unwell, but added that talks were going on between Ransley and Minns. He said it was possible that the charges could be withdrawn.

Bruce was a mentor to many young people including my son Jomo – Uhuru

President Uhuru Kenyatta has revealed that the late Bruce Odhiambo helped him straighten his son Jomo.

Uhuru on Saturday said Bruce, who served as the Youth Fund boss, was a man to be emulated for many generations to come.

He said despite having schooled in the same school and sat in the same class, their relations took them beyond school and they have remained best of friends until his death,

Bruce died on January 4, at a Nairobi hospital after he suffered heart attack.

Uhuru was eulogising the late at his Muhoroni home where he has been laid to rest.

“He was a true Kenyan, he had no tribal or religious boundaries all he wanted is to make friends. He recongised you for who you are and not what you are,” Uhuru said.

The Head of State said Bruce was a man who was never afraid to give everything he had for those who couldn’t have.

He said in his life, the late has helped so many upcoming musicians who wouldn’t have made it in life.

“He was a mentor to many young people including my very own son Jomo whom he helped me straighten out and that is why I have come here today to celebrate a man who means a lot to my family,” he said.
Uhuru maintained Bruce will be remembered because he had no political affiliations and he had a great desire to restructure the youth fund.

“He took me to Kibera so many times to see how we could improve the lives of our youth. He did all these because he understood the needs of the people,” Uhuru added.

He said, “We who have been left behind we must ask ourselves what we can do to emulate him.”

Uhuru also said his government will not abandon the family that has been left behind.

“I am making this promise not as the president but as a brother of the man who is lying here. We shall ensure these children complete education and settle in life, we shall support you to keep his company alive and moving because he would have done the same for us,” he said.

Uhuru also agreed to meet all the musicians at Nairobi’s State House to discuss the future of the music industry in the country.

Former Prime Minister and AU’s special envoy Raila Odinga, in his remarks, termed Bruce as a selfless man who had a great heart.
He touched generations, those who were older than him, his age-mates and younger than him. He loved people and has changed the lives of many young people,” Raila said.

He added, “All we can say Bruce has lived a good life and it is a testimony of good upbringing.”
