The first Saturday of the new month is here after a week full of drama, sad moments and chaotic scenes.
The political scene seems to be getting murkier with every passing day as the Hustler versus Dynasty narrative war intensifies ahead of 2022.
As we look forward to the coming days, let’s take a trip down memory lane of the stories that caught our attention in the past seven days:
Nyeri Disabled Man Killed
The week started on a sour note after a disabled man from Nyeri was knocked down and killed by a politician’s convoy.
Reports indicated that the man was killed by a vehicle that came from the Sagana meeting organised by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The victim identified as Christopher Nderitu was in a wheelchair when the fatal incident occurred along the Chaka-Sagana Road.
The three vehicles that committed the crime are alleged to belong to an Embu leader.
Ex-minister Simeone Nyachae Dies
The country was sent into a sombre mood after former Finance Minister Simeone Nyachae died.
The veteran leader succumbed to an undisclosed sickness after being rushed to Nairobi Hospital.
The 88-year-old was fondly remembered for his work in the ex-President Mwai Kibaki’s government before he quietly exited the political arena.
Milicent Omanga Chased Away from the Podium at Funeral
Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga was on the spotlight after chaos broke out during a funeral held in Kisii.
Drama ensued at the Kisii Deputy Governor’s father Joash Maangi’s burial where Omanga was ejected off the podium.
The female leader was disgruntled after Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati insulted Deputy President William Ruto during the event.
Full of anger, Omanga dashed onto the podium in an attempt to address the crowd but was stopped in her tracks.
The MC then refused to let her speak to the citizens and she, in turn, grabbed him by the shirt forcing bodyguards to intervene.
Jubilee MPs Give Support to Ruto’s Impeachment Motion
126 leaders from the ruling party were claimed to have thrown their weight behind the plan to impeach Ruto.
Lugari MP Ayub Savula disclosed that the motion had already started but it was in the signature level.
He further remarked that the move was orchestrated in order to retain sanity to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s reign.
Mike Sonko Cries in Court
Troubled ex-Governor Mike Sonko was the talk of the town after he broke down in tears during his case hearing.
Sonko was overcome by emotions at the Anti-Corruption Mlimani Court as he tried to defend himself.
According to the vocal leader, the court had decided to charge him with an assault case which Sonko stated had happened before he took a plea.
Caught unawares by Sonko’s behaviour, the magistrate urged the leader to control himself for the case to continue.
Form Three Student Beats up Teachers
In the menace sweeping across the country of students acting out, a form three student was arrested after he assaulted his teachers.
The 18-year-old boy identified as David Munga from Rwambitit Secondary School turned violent after the teachers tried to confiscate his mobile phone.
The rogue student beat up three teachers before the police apprehended him, a move that was supported by his parents.
Chaos in Nairobi Over Sonko’s Detainment
Chaos broke out in the capital after Sonko supporters took to the streets to demand the release of the former Nairobi Governor.
The incident came a day after Sonko was transferred from Gigiri to Kamiti Maximum Prison.
The youth behind the madness burned tyres and blocked off sections of some highways in protest.
The embattled Hustler nation leader is set to spend 30 days at the facility before the next hearing of his case.
