PHOTOS: Migori Governor Okoth Obado Recieved With Jubilations As He Reports Back To Work

Published

Grand entrance as Obado resumes office.

For 34 days, the county boss stayed without the luxuries and pomp that power comes with. Obado who was arrested and charged over the death of his girlfriend Sharon Otieno, would spend his days and cold nights in Industrial Area as he fought for the court to grant him bail and his wish was granted last week.

Mr Obado was released from the Industrial Area Prison on Thursday evening after being freed on cash bail. The governor is out on a Sh5 million cash bail but he cannot go to his palatial home in Rapogi because it within a 20km radius the court ruled he should not breach lest he is taken back to prison.

Obado disembarks from his official car when he arrived in the office.

To conform with the terms, Obado has now moved to his old house in compliance with High Court bond terms that require him to stay away from Homa Bay’s boundary by at least 20km.The Migori house belongs to BAT Kenya and was rented by the county administration in 2014. He vacated the house three years ago when the construction of his new rural home was completed. He has been operating from his Rapogi home, which is within the 20km radius.

Obado received by his jubilant staff and supporters at the County’s HQ.

Justice Jessie Lessit on Wednesday ruled that Mr Obado was entitled to bond, as none of the evidence and witnesses had directly linked him to the murder of the Rongo University student.

Unbowed by his tribulations which he has repeatedly attributed to politics, the Governor with full power apparatus, reported to work where his staff and supporters at the county’s headquarters welcomed him with jubilation.

Governor Obado chairs County’s cabinet meeting.

Obado chaired a meeting with his cabinet and was updated on various developments in his absence. Many had thought he’d resign from office given the murder case and integrity scope but all that seem not to be happening. There’s supposedly an impeachment motion in the cooking to oust the governor in what can be said to be a looming battle. For now it’s bsbk to enjoying power contraptions for the Governor who can’t get out of his county.

Mixed Reactions As Kiuna’s JCC Allows Gay Journalist Richard Quest To The Pulpit

Published

on

Richard Quest.

Homosexuality remains one of those taboo topics in Kenya such that when Obama visited Kenya, President Uhuru veered off discussions in that perspective telling his US counterpart that homosexuality is a non issue.

Under Kenyan laws, homosexuality is still considered criminal punishable by imprisonment. Kenya despite criminalizing the samesex relationships is however not as hostile on homosexuals as neighboring countries, Kenya has remained a safe hub for gays given the soft stance. There’s reportedly a case in the brewing that would eventually see Kenya legalizing homosexuality and join rest of west countries now allowing same sex marriages.

The church especially the Kenyan clergy has been preaching against gayism and that’s why it didn’t come as a surprise when section of Kenyans criticized JCC when they hosted CNN’s Richard Quest and allowed him to use the pulpit to preach during their Sunday service.

While there’s nothing wrong with allowing him to the pulpit, it is unusual and newsworthy for the church to embrace Quest who’s publicly gay having come out himself. Can this be read as the church giving a node to homosexuality? It is a statement that’s being made not sure what they were saying.

Kenyans as always, had a lot to say on this particular matter in which the church is being accused of double standards and hypocrisy in the sense that, we have publicly declared gay people in the country that the church has never hosted, JCC is accused of clinging on the clout that the CNN journalist has come with since his entry into the country.

Sample of the comments:

Holly Kenyan; A Kenyan ,born and raised  who is a 100% a church attendant and never misses a church service  have never been given a chance in the same church to say hi!!! Richard Quest has been given a VIP sit and 30 minutes worth of airtime and first time church attendant.

Michael Kyale; Seriously ? We have allowed Mr. Quest who is GAY, without any apologies/repentance to speak on pulpit? Something not right here.

Mercy Amisi; I honestly see nothing wrong here. When Jesus died at the cross, the curtain at the temple tore into two, showing the church was opened to all. Funny how adulterous attending church sermons are now condemning JCC for welcoming Richard smh.

Richard Quest is in the country to shoot two episodes of his Quest Means Business which was to air live on Thursday and Friday but didn’t given the bomb scares in the US.

Itumbi Daily Visits To Lang’ata Women Prison Raises Eyebrows

Published

on

Itumbi and Maribe talking on the side when she appeared in court.

It is not a secret that there exists a very strong bond or attraction between Itumbi and Maribe even though he says their relationship is not romantic.

Ever since Jacque Maribe was first summoned for questioning on Monica Kimani’s murder before her arrest, Itumbi has come out publicly in giving Maribe moral and other ends of support.

Despite Maribe always appearing with her fiancé Jowie, Itumbi has not shied away from anything even the cameras to cross the crocodile infested rivers for Jacque, in her las court appearance, Itumbi even joined her in the dick and tightly hugged her as Jowie tried so hard to assume.

The government’s digital strategist who’s said to now be in the cold after being blocked from entering Statehouse seems to be breaking the borders for his friend Maribe. He has written letters,  written poems the only thing Itumbi hasn’t done yet is breaking down on camera for Maribe.

A source is now revealing to Kenya Insights that Itumbi has also been making daily visits to Lang’ata women prison where Maribe is being held. The source says he’s a frequent visitor and gets preferential treatment whenever he visits.

Source tells us that he’s accorded longer hours with the prisoner where they spend more time together. This has caused a discomfort in the prison walls as to why he should be given the preferential treatment.

Itumbi’s sustained court appearance is said to be giving the case pomp and frustrating Maribe’s chances of getting bail as its read that she has friends in high places that can influence the case.

The love or obsession that exists between these two is a whole new book.

Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta to be honoured with Black History Month, African Peace Award 2018 in British Parliament

Published

President Uhuru And Raila

London Political Summit this year will honour Kenya’s former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta for their political sportsmanship and adherence to the principle of political tolerance. This follows their Peace Accord Handshake which ended political acrimony and intolerance after Kenya’s election in 2017 which had threatened to divide the country and increase of violence.

These two great men themselves have a long rich history behind them, as both their parents were the founding fathers of Kenyan political and democratic history. It is a great privilege to identify with their latest leadership style which infers immense political maturity.

The summit will be looking at the narrow and broad concepts of political-will to act, and the public- will’s power to react, in the very context of an individual leader, or collective leadership actions in critical political decision-making in governance.

Away from being awarded, London Political Summit has created a special award known as “Raila- Uhuru African Peace Accord Award” which will be given annually to any African leader who embraces peace, values democracy and exhibits high level of political maturity and tolerance.

The awardees will go through strict criteria and vetting. Some of the criteria used will be political tolerance, people-oriented leadership, political accountability and political morality among other vital issues in governance.

Others nominated for London Political Summit are: Rt. Hon. Dr Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga MP, Speaker of Uganda parliament, Rt Hon. Diane Abbott MP UK Parliament, Prof. John Raftery Vice Chancellor, London Metropolitan University, Her Excellency Ambassador Dr Josephine Ojiambo, Former Secretary General of the Commonwealth,
On list as well, Her Excellency Ambassador Mrs Mmasekgoa Masire-Mwamba, Served two terms, from 2008 to 2014, as Deputy Secretary-General for the Commonwealth.

“The only motive that can keep politics pure is the motive of doing good for one’s country and its people”. Henry Ford. And to add on this Godson Azu Director of London Political Summit says:
“The paradigm shift in political thoughts and actions around the world in most recent years, has to resonate with the idea that nations should govern themselves, free from external interferences, that defies super-globalization and its current burning issues such as; climate change, disarmament, genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, terrorism, national security, and sovereignty, which requires the attention of both domestic and national politics.”
