Well, Kenyans can’t t keep calm after a video of President Uhuru Kenyatta giving a mini-speech got out. Kenyans are saying he has a different accent compared to the way he addresses us back home. What do you think? Listen below:
Truth be told Uhuru who is considered a favourite among all Kenyan Presidents knows all too well that when you go to Rome you behave like the Romans.

A Zambian parliamentary delegation of eight MPs is in Kenya to learn how to effectively fight corruption in a country already swallowed up by the same vice.
The committee on Privileges, Absences and Support Services visited EACC commissioners at Integrity Centre is in Nairobi to learn how the agency has been spearheading the war on graft.
This comes at a time when Kenya has been marred by corruption led by the NYS scandal in which Sh9 billion was stolen, the National Cereals and Produce Board (Sh1.9 billion), Kenya Pipeline Company (Sh95 billion), and the National Irrigation Board.
According to The Star the eight people delegation arrived over the weekend and held its first meeting with the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission on Monday
EACC Commissioner Mwaniki Gachoka confirmed this “This is a study tour by our colleagues from the Zambian National Assembly. We are sharing experiences on fighting corruption and promoting ethics,We are fighting corruption through many strategies. One of the is law enforcement – investigating cases and recommending them to the DPP.”
Funny as it may sound Kenya has been named among the top most corrupt countries in the World ,with our police force being the most affected institutions,We have gone back to being ‘Inchi ya kitu kidogo’ where who you know and where you come from determines how quickly your problems will be sorted.
The recent NYS victims are still in remand awaiting judgment ,while some are still free roaming and planning when to strike again and we can only wonder what lessons we can offer Zambia when we can not fight our own corruption cases.
“We are here to learn how the EACC is managing it, bearing in mind that those who engage in corruption remain very powerful and with the mandate to look after the aspirations of the people they govern.”
President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned that nobody who is found guilty will go unpunished while the Judiciary has asked agencies and investigators to provide evidence sufficient for convictions.

TV Actress Wanjiku Mburu popularly known as Mama Baha from the TV series Machachari has opened up about her long lost brother.
Out of frustration she has tried to get in touch with the President’s office to get some closure on where her brother could be.
“See Mr President my brother was kidnapped and it’s now 3 years since and nothing from you or your office…after everything has been said and done, it’s been said and NOTHING done. So this is me hoping with everything going on, your re-election, Githeri man raising to fame you will get to read this and bring my brother home…3 years, I think he has done his “time”. His children need their father, his wife-a husband, his parents- a son and me- MY BROTHER,” Wanjiku wrote in an open letter to the president.
She continued, “I am writing to you and this is me clutching at straws…i was told not to write to you, others said I should follow chain of command, which I did and after a few attempts to seek audience with the relevant people we had our 1st meeting and everyone was happy to see ‘us’..well that’s until we told them why we were really there and no sooner did they hear us, there were promises of immediate action…there was ” call me 1st thing in the morning….” which I did and this was the narrative…in hushed tones I was told..” I am in a meeting I’ll call you later..” this went on for a while until they no longer bothered to pick my calls…”
Wanjiku hopes her open letter to the president will get to the attention of the commander in chief.
Kenyans who read the letter reacted. Here are some of their comments.
