Published

on


He was traced to a local bar enjoying drinks after a manhunt by security officers.

An assistant Chief in Murang’a has been charged with sabotaging registration of Huduma Namba project after he disappeared with registration equipment with intention of selling it.

Gerald Maina Ndirangu appeared before Murang’a Principal Magistrate Mr Edwin Nyaga, facing a charge of sabotaging a government project. The matter case will be heard on June 14.

He was charged that on diverse dates between April 5 and April 7, he took away the electronic gadget from his Gikandu sub location, frustrating the ongoing registration of Huduma Namba.

The prosecution told the court that the administrator, who was not picking phone calls. After a search, he was traced in a local bar enjoying drinks after a manhunt by security officers.

The administrator, who has since been interdicted, was released on a Sh100,000 bond with a surety of the similar amount.

Due to the unavailability of the gadget in Gikandu sub location, residents were forced to access registration services from a neighbouring sub location.

The county security committee, after the equipment could not be traced online, dispatched detectives to search for the assistant chief, before he was arrested in a liquor joint on Monday.

After the incident, chiefs have been instructed to communicate with their seniors over the condition of the equipment.

Njugush, Dj Mo start Travel companies, clash with Bonfire Adventures

Published

on

The travel industry is blowing up with eye-popping deals to dream destinations around the country and the world.

In fact, tour firms have made a kill over this Easter holiday with most of them recording maximum bookings mainly at the Coast where most holiday lovers are whiling away the long weekend.

And it is not just your ordinary tour firms fighting for a slice of the lucrative venture. Lately, showbiz personalities have taken up the space with a dozen having registered their own tour companies.

For example Akothee Safaris, a tours and travel firm run by celebrated music star Akothee has been offering irresistible travel deals both to the Coast and other leading destinations around game reserves and national parks.

And also in the game is veteran MC and events guru Christopher Kirwa and his wife Cate who run ChrisCate Management Company. The two have started off a unique tour mission that mostly involves couples.

Using their experience in events management and the goodwill they have been enjoying from their numerous clients, these two could be the next big thing in tours and travel.

But while the newcomers enjoy relative tranquillity in an environment that is known for its brutal deals with the big boys protecting their turf, trouble seems to be brewing between celebrity stars DJ Mo, comedian Njugush and one Simon Kabu who introduced them into the world of sweet travel deals.

Many will recall photos of Njuguna and his wife Celestine Ndinda aka Wakavinye on their honeymoon on a lucrative trip with Kabu’s Bonfire Ventures.

Just like many celebs among them Eric Omondi and his fiancée Chantal Grazioli, Bahati and his Wife Diana as well as Vera and Otile Brown, Njuguna was a target with offers from Kabu’s team.

That was before Bountiful Safaris took the couple to Dubai. As Bountiful Safaris emerged, around the same time came Trippy Go Tours, which is said to have a popular personality- a leading comedian and radio presenter- on board.

Now, there is beef brewing between these two companies and Kabu’s Bonfire Ventures.          

Trippy Go Tours and Bountiful Safaris have both gone to court; they are suing Bonfire Ventures for buying domain names that are similar to their websites.

The three companies organise budget getaways for individuals and groups where you pay a certain amount and they take care of your travel expenses and accommodation as well as other logistics.

They have been working hard to promote local tourism and, by making it easy to take trips to Dubai and Zanzibar with competitive rates, they appeal to youthful clients.

The two companies use ‘.com’ websites but are accusing Bonfire of using their names to register ‘.org’ and ‘.net’ websites, which when searched were redirecting back to the Bonfire website which uses a ‘.com’ domain. The fight for who has the better travel deal has been abandoned and the gloves are off as the three battle for visibility and relevance.

According to Trippy Go Tours and Bountiful Safaris, the domains bought by Bonfire are set to expire next year, which may lead unsuspecting customers to the Bonfire website, which then hurts their business.

The Marketing

With its owners, Simon Kabu and his wife Sarah, Bonfire has been working hard to be visible by coming on board anything that gives them publicity. They’ve gone hard on their marketing by working with celebrities with a large following online and sponsoring their trips to dream destinations.

In return the influencers post on their social media and give the company favourable mention. Bahati is seen as one of their loyal customers but his influence online is what the company really taps into from their relationship.

His dalliance with the Kabu’s is easily noticeable. They have been more than willing to make appearances at his events and he has been busy posting thankful messages to them.

Comedian Timothy Kimani aka Njuguna, his wife Celestine Ndinda aka Wakavinye and Samuel Muraya aka DJ Mo would easily be seen as ambassadors for Bonfire Ventures, just like many other celebs are. However, with the brewing differences, this might not end up well.

And this brewing war has also touched on the purchase of the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) tickets where some travel companies are rumoured to be buying and holding tickets to Mombasa during high seasons arguably because they want to benefit from the clients at the expense of others.

I will get Noti Flow pregnant vows Colonel Mustafa

Published

on


Colonel Mustafa and Noti Flow [Photo: Courtesy]

It is a month since Noti Flow and Colonel Mustafa made up after a bitter split and now, speaking exclusively to ‘Pulse’, the ‘Lenga Stress’ singer says he wants to have children with the rapper.

Pulse: In a nutshell, are you back together or you are just positing videos and pictures together for show?

Mustafa: We are back together and not just back, this love is hot. This is all I have wanted all my life. Noti Flow is like no other woman. She completes me.

P: Are you sure you are not using this hype for a comeback?

M: Comeback? I never left. Mustafa has been releasing songs and has been a household name whether it’s because of Nairobi Diaries drama’s or haters saying I retired and I am selling ‘mitumba’ clothes. It’s nothing like hype. We are in a serous love affair. In fact, we are inseparable.

P: ‘Inseparable’ is a big word. You were once in love and had a bitter break-up that also involved Prezzo. Why would you give each other a second chance?

M: Even God gives people second chances. See, when we were both in Nairobi Diaries, things were a bit different. There were so many wars and women were really backstabbing each other and that led to a serious problem. She was told many bad things about me and I opted to let it be so. I think time is a teacher. We both know better.

P: Do you see a future in the two of you?

M: I see a future and the future is now. We are a perfect match. She has suddenly made me change my perspective of things when it comes to matters love. People might not understand Noti Flow as they perceive who she is from a very uninformed way.

P: What makes you a perfect couple?

M: The fact that we love each other, understand each other and accommodate each other’s feelings and preferences. She is an artiste and I am too and so it is easy to relate how we both live. The last relationship was troubled because we wouldn’t work things from the same page.

P: But we heard you were married, in fact we heard it from Noti Flow herself…

M: After we separated about a year ago, I had to step aside and reflect on my life. I had someone but the point is that the relationship was not working. It was like that Marya case, I mean sometimes I feel like I am jinxed when it comes to relationships. I trust this will last.

P: Marya was also a singer. She would have understood you as an artiste. Why didn’t that last and why should this last?

M: You know the story. Marya was difficult to work with, difficult to understand, difficult to please. Noti is very open. She says it as it is and I like that a lot. I learned that when we were doing Nairobi Diaries. She is also an independent mind.

P: You want her for a wife?

M: If she is ready, I am ready.

P: The other day she teased her followers on Instagram asking them to guess whether she was expecting a boy or a girl. Is she pregnant?

M: If she is pregnant for me then that is my joy. If she is not, I am ready to get her pregnant. We have been having a lot of intimate time. That is one thing she had missed after she left me. Sticks. You can’t get this treat anywhere else.

Colonel Mustafa [Photo: Courtesy]

P: Stick?

M: Yes stick, ‘miti’. A man has to have game. I am the real G and she is naughty. We have to find a way to soften each other and there is only one way. Should I continue?

P: So if she is pregnant you guys are ready to move in under one roof?

M: I would give Noti Flow a kid anytime…In fact, I would have her carry twins for me. I am doing everything in my ability to make this work. I am not perfect but I am willing to accommodate even on areas where she could have weaknesses. That is what affairs are all about. I want her to get pregnant, deliver and go to gym like Cardi B. I want her to make records as I make records. See, this relationship can be good business like it is for Kanye and Kim.

P: Beyond the Instagram videos of you falling over each other, what else don’t we know?

M: The n**gas have been calling her since I came back. They want her and are offering her anything to get her. It’s crazy. That is f*** up. Where were they all this one year I was gone. I should simply warn them. I am a real G and we don’t take such jokes seated.

Beyonce shares her VERY restrictive diet – and admits she’s ‘hungry’

Published

on


Beyonce embarked on a very restrictive diet to get in shape for headlining Coachella

Beyonce has revealed that her post-birth diet – which rules out almost all food – has left her “hungry”.

ALSO READ: Six common digestive problems and how to avoid them

The 37-year-old singer opened up about her diet and fitness regime in her new Netflix documentary, Homecoming.

The Crazy In Love singer revealed all about how much she weighed after giving birth to twins Sir Carter and daughter Rumi in June 2017 and the dieting regime she has undertaken to tackle her post-birth body.

The twins were delivered by emergency cesarean section and Beyonce has spoken previously about how she was swollen from toxaemia after the birth.

In April 2018, Beyonce was due to headline Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, so embarked on a restrictive diet to get herself into shape.

But it left Queen Bey with virtually nothing she could actually eat, meaning she was always “hungry”.

In the documentary, Beyonce revealed: “In order for me to meet my goals, I’m limiting myself to no bread, no carbs, no sugar, no dairy, no meat, no fish, no alcohol… I’m hungry.”

Beyonce Homecoming has arrived on Netflix

Despite listing what she won’t eat, Beyonce didn’t reveal what actually is on the menu on a day-to-day basis.

She said: “I was 218 pounds (98kg) the day I gave birth. I had to rebuild my body from cut muscles. What people don’t see is the sacrifice.”

Now, she is in a better place with her body and is embracing her “mummy pouch”.

Beyonce performing at Coachella Festival

She admitted: “To this day, my arms, shoulders, breast, and thighs are fuller. I have a little mummy pouch, and I’m in no rush to get rid of it. I think it’s real.

“Whenever I’m ready to get a six pack, I will go into beast zone and work my arse off until I have it.

“But right now, my little FUPA and I feel like we are meant to be.”

It has been a difficult journey for the singer, who has struggled to balance her career with motherhood, as she has had to make changes to how she has approached her music.

“Just trying to figure out how to balance being a mother of a six-year-old (Blue Ivy, now 7) and of twins that need me and giving myself creativity and physically, there’s a lot to juggle.

ALSO READ: Food allergies: Everything you need to know

“It’s not like before when I could rehearse 15 hours straight. I have children. I have a husband. I have to take care of my body.”

Fortunately, this now involves a diet in which not everything on the menu is unavailable.
