Ruto’s Linked Company, KIDL Helicopters Buys A New Chopper And His Sixth, Bell 505 The First In Africa

Published

on

The Bell 505 Helicopter, It becomes the first to be delivered in Africa.

Africair, has delivered a Bell 505 helicopter to KIDL Helicopters Operations in Kenya, Bell announced on 5 September.

The delivery marks the introduction of the first Bell 505 helicopter to a customer in Africa.

Africair Helicopter Support, a newly established Kenya Civil Aviation Authority authorised maintenance organisation, reassembled the aircraft for delivery to KIDL at Wilson Airport in Nairobi. It will now be deployed for VIP transport operations.

The Bell 505 is a five-seat aircraft that features advanced avionics technology. It incorporates dynamic components, advanced aerodynamic design and a dual channel FADEC Turbomeca Arrius 2R engine.

Kwae Island Development Limited (KIDL) allegedly  operates the choppers on behalf of DP Ruto including the controversial helicopter registration 5Y-DSN whose pilot assaulted a police officer years back and was used for country side Jubilee campaigns. The planes were also allegedly chartered to KPLC, KPC and energy ministry in a nutshell.

Interestingly, KIDL got the air ambulance contract for NHIF despite not having the capacity to deliver the job prompting an outsourcing deal with Amref to assist in far flung areas. The awarding of the contract was challenged with the board.

Ruto who’s wealth and sources has been of questioning, recently denied owning any chopper claiming the one he uses is borrowed from Moses Kuria a claim that many laughed off as a lie. The DP has invested heavily in hospitality industry and real estate. He’s remained a center of focus in the anti corruption purge with many calling for a lifestyle audit to determine the truth on his rapidly acquired big empire.

Uganda’s Ministry of Tourism unveiled a beauty pageant dubbed ‘Miss Curvy Uganda’ in a bid to promote tourism in the country, the ministry decided to use Kenya’s media personality Grace Msalame as the official face of their Miss Curvy Uganda contest without her knowledge. Whether it was a mistake or deliberate is unknown but now they’ll have to prove it in court.

In a statement, Msalame says, “I take great exception for the fact that my image and likeliness are being used to propagate, disseminate and encourage objectification of women. I don’t agree nor endorse such a message or anyone who’s a creator of the idea that women’s body are tourist attraction sites.”

While announcing that her lawyers are already on legal course for redress, Msalame says, “I reject any association to me that has been unlawfully created by Miss Curvy Uganda 2019 and its agents.”

The media personality claims that her brand has been immensely hit following the publications of her images. “Miss Curvy Uganda’s deliberate and calculated use of my image and likeliness to promote violation of women’s bodies had defamed my character and reputation damaged a brand that I’ve worked for so many years to establish, and subjected me to unwarranted and undeserved cyber bullying.” She says in her statement.

Club Associated With CS Echesa’s Deported Exotic Dancers Now Wants State To Pay Them Sh48M

Published

on

CS Rashid Echesa.

Balle Balle Club In Parklands that flew in the eight deported Pakistani women is now suing the state over the deportation of the dancers by police infringed on its rights and business. The club is seeking to be compensated with Sh48M which they claim was lost as a result of the deportation.

Arguing their case before Justice Luka Kimaru, the club represented by lawyer Evans Ondieki told the court that the dancers had been issued with special permits by the Sports CS Rashid Echesa to perform at the Balle Balle Club during the festive season but were arrested and detained illegally by police.

The court also heard, the girls were bundled out of the club and detained for 36 hours without bathing, which was a violation of their basic rights. They were held as investigations looked into the circumstances and validity of the permits issued by the CS who was alleged to have been involved in the human trafficking racket.

Earlier, the lawyers had sought for the court to compel CS Echesa and Matiang’i to personally compensate the deported girls despite having a standing order to produce them in court. The courts excused the CSs from the Sh9.1M fine and instead summoned detectives who gave out the girls to different state despite the case having been lodged in.

The club is now seeking orders restraining the DCI, DPP and Transnational Organised Crime Unit from entering, harassing, intimidating, arresting or doing anything prejudicial to its directors.
