Welcome back! We hope you had a great weekend, the last one of its kind this year until Christmas. What is curious though is how Kenyans spent their free time.
Whereas most of you were at the pub binging on alcohol, Eldoret men chose to host the first Men’s Conference. And guess who was the speaker of the day? Mzee Jackson Kibor.
We don’t have details of the agenda of the meeting but we know what happens where Mzee Kibor is involved. Last year, the Uasin Gishu tycoon divorced his two wives (they had been married for more than 40 years) because they denied him conjugal rights.
In October 2018, a man accused Mzee Kibor of luring his wife with trips in his high-end car and then snatching her. Of course, the 85-year-old farmer denied these allegations.
As the Men’s Conference was underway in Eldoret, news broke that a female MCA in the neighbouring Kakamega County had been suspended for one year after mercilessly beating her male colleague. The male MCAs are also planning to curse the accused who maintains the victim had to be punished for calling her a prostitute.
We hope the Kakamega MCAs were invited to the Eldoret men’s conference:

Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu seems to be having problems left, right centre following the latest drama he faced. Waititu travelled to Mombasa for the Mashujaa celebrations conducted by President Uhuru Kenyatta. He was however humiliated when he was asked to vacate a seat designated for VIPs at the dais. This raises the question, is it a case of bad luck for the governor or is he being targeted in a political way to bring him down once and for all?
