The Standard
Nadia, 23, hit headlines after she was pictured working wearing only underwear beneath her see-through protective gown

The nurse who wore a see-through gown on a men’s coronavirus ward will not be disciplined- but says her new found fame is “hard to endure.”

Nadia, 23, hit headlines after she was pictured working in a Russian hospital wearing only underwear beneath her see-through protective gown.
However, thanks to a close Vladimir Putin political ally – Nadia will not lose her job over the raunchy outfit.
Nadia had earlier explained to her managers she was “too hot” in her protective gown and clothes but doctors at the Tula Regional Clinical Hospital have now revealed there were shortages of both disposable and reusable medical clothing to wear over her lingerie.

The nurse told a local newspaper that she had to close all her social media over the furore which led regional health chiefs to announce she was being disciplined for “non-compliance with the requirements for medical clothing.”
This came after she had been forced to stay apart from her family for two months while she cares for coronavirus patients, so as not to put her relatives at risk, she said.
“I’m not scared – it’s my job,” she was quoted as saying.
“I always wanted to help people, bring benefits, so I went into medicine.”
The head of her hospital, Dr Anna Savishcheva, insisted Nadia had not been punished over the pictures.

And she revealed the nurse had received a personal visit and backing from Tula regional Governor Alexey Dyumin, 47, a former Putin bodyguard and military spy chief who has been tipped as a future Russian president.
“We did not impose any disciplinary sanctions, in any case, written,” Dr Savishcheva told Vesti Tula TV.
“The girl continues to work.
“This is a good employee, a professional, who provides medical care at a high level.”
She said: “As soon as her picture appeared in web, Governor Alexey Dyumin met her – and was in touch with her.

Nurse Nadia was described as a “professional” employee at the hospital 

Nadia did not deserve reproach for her appearance, said the hospital chief.
“The nurse did her job, she did not pose.”
Nadia is believed to be not the only medic to wear only underwear beneath their transparent protective gowns.
“We just have nothing to wear,” a doctor told Komsomolskaya Pravda.
“There are not enough scrub suits, which according to the rules we should wear under our protective gowns…
“Believe me, we wouldn’t go naked if we were provided with a complete set.”
A doctor on the same ward as Nadia said: “I totally support the nurse.
“It very hot in these costumes for a long time.
“She did not deserve any punishment.
“Most likely she realised that the costume was transparent, but decided to dress like this anyway because it is very hard to be in these costumes for a long time.
“And the main thing is that she helpedthecoronavirus patients.
“It was totally not right that some patient took a picture of her.
“He framed her when she was helping him.”
Ex-Putin bodyguard Dyumin is a former deputy head of GRU military intelligence and in 2014 is reported to have led a secret mission to smuggle toppled pro-Russian Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovich out of his country after he was deposed.
Some analysts claim Dyumin is being groomed by Putin as his eventual successor.

To eat or not to eat? Ringtone’s dilemma is every Kenyan artists’

Published

on

Loading...

Ringtone Apoko recently took to social media to declare that he was a little more than confused as to what to do with regard to the fact that a politician asked to license his song -probably for rallies.

The song which features Azziad as the video vixen was recently released to a lot of fanfare and dating rumours (impressive stunt by the way). And it has resulted in what can only be a Kenyan artist’s wet dream: a politician looking to use their song for political mileage.

“Kizungu yako inahitaji quarantine!” Fans troll Ringtone after butchering the Queen’s language

Ringtone took to his social media page to ask his fans what he needs to do with regards to allowing the yet unnamed politician to use his song. Why this is usually a boon for the artist is that it could end up being used to the point of him being invited to perform the song. That would see him tour the country off the back of a politician looking to drum up support.

But this is also a double-edged sword as it can see Ringtone get sidelined by Kenyans who do not support the politician -and Kenyans will literally do this. Aye, Kenyans will turn their backs on an artist who is seen to be in league with a politician from the opposing camp.

So what is an artist to do?

To alienate one half of the country or to earn money. Let’s face it, Kenya is a third world shithole with limited opportunities for success and when you stumble upon one, you would be well advised to snap it up.
But what happens when your family, your parents start being harassed by their neighbours because you, their son, support someone the community doesn’t? And that is a reality.

I would advise Ringtone to take the money and never look back. Sure, five million isn’t a lot of money in the grand scheme of things but it is capital. And that could allow you to make something of yourself and for your family. And Kenyans will not support you by buying your music anyway. So I would remind Ringtone that nobody is coming to save him. He is on his own and he needs to act like it.

Martyrs are good. They die a needless death that the survivors can romanticise. But martyrs die painful deaths. And more often than not, their deaths are needless. I can only think of one martyr that actually changed the world, but his followers have largely descended into hypocrisy. And they will not support Ringtone with their coin even though they would be the first to condemn him as he does indeed make music for them.

Why Kenyans are the backbone of Diamond Platnumz success

Published

on

Loading...

Turns out Diamond Platnumz owes a lot Kenyans. According to a recently conducted Billboard piece, a large section of his fans and supporters are Kenyan.

Rekindling an old flame? Zari Hassan responds to romantic rumors linking her with Diamond Platnumz

I would argue that this means we are owed a free concert. After all, the fact that he came to Kenya to get his most recent baby momma only served him. It is a very interesting thing, however, as it shows that Kenyans have the power to make a star.

Diamond Platnumz support is Kenyan

That means that once again, Kenyans have proven their hypocrisy and the fact that we love anything foreign whether it comes from West Africa, South Africa or even just south of our border. So what happens now you ask?

Lanes! Otile Brown ranked as Kenya’s top artist, rivaling Diamond Platnumz and Rayvanny

Well, given just how successful Diamond Platnumz is, perhaps Kenyans could make a star of our own. Perhaps we could galvanize behind our most talented and marketable stars and we can make them great.

Afterall, with the case of Diamond Platnumz, it is clear that for any star to make name for themselves, they need a home base with ready fans who will propel them far. That way, when they get accepted in new markets, they completely dominated. They can grow to superstardom.
Diamond Platnumz, for instance, is a success because Kenyans support him after he already has the home base behind him.

Why Zari inviting Diamond Platnumz back into his children’s life is fantastic

Imagine if you will, just how successful Sauti Sol would be if we galvanized behind them like we do Diamond. None of the hating, no making excuses, we all just support them with our views, our love and our money. The same way we blindly worship Mondi, we could get behind a Kenyan act.

That would be quite something to behold. But for now, we will continue to support Diamond Platnumz. And then we shall complain about the fact that these guys are winning. And how Kenya lacks real superstars.

Delicate balance for MoH as Kibra Covid-19 cases surge – KBC

Published

on

Loading...

The country’s largest informal settlement Kibra remains on governments’ radar as Covid-19 cases continue to increase exponentially.

KBC Radio_KICD Timetable

In the latest figures released by the Ministry of Health, Nairobi still accounts for the highest number of cases with Kibra recording 16 new infections in the past 24 hours. Last week alone the area recorded over 80 cases with reports indicating the numbers may have hit 200.

However, the government is still contemplating whether to put the new Covid-19 epicentre under partial lockdown as it quickly did in Nairobi’s Eastleigh and Old Town in Mombasa when the numbers spiked.

The two areas were put under lockdown by Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe on May 6 after recording 58 and 67 cases, respectively.

Health Chief Administrative Secretary Dr Rashid Aman Tuesday during the daily Covid-19 press briefing promised to deploy appropriate containment measures including a lockdown which he said was on the cards but cautioned that it was a delicate affair.

“We are continuing to watch this epicentre within Kibra very closely informal settlements present unique challenges that we need to look at carefully. Lockdown is clearly on the table but when we feel the time is right, we have to assess and balance these things”, he said.

He said surveillance teams were on the ground working with communities to minimize movement in affected areas including identifying cluster areas with high transmissions.

“It is possible that it may not be the entire Kibra but a few cluster areas that we are trying to identify. Once we have information and we feel the numbers have reached a point where particular measures must be taken, then we will”.

Social distancing

As of June 2, Kenya recorded 72 new cases pushing the national tally to 2093. So far 82,946 have been tested since the disease broke out in March 13.

Dr Aman cautions that we are not out of the woods yet as the disease remains a serious threat.

“The stage where we are in this fight requires that we remain focused and united because the battle will be long drawn. We need each other to defeat this disease by collectively adhering to the containment measures”.

The government has rolled out mass testing in targeted areas particularly in densely populated areas which have become hotspots for the disease.

Mathare is the other informal settlement which has registered more cases, the highest being 33.

Last week Health Director-General Patrick Amoth admitted the challenges of enforcing preventive measures in informal settlements.

“It is practically difficult to ensure social distancing. The only measure left now is hygiene and use of masks,” said Dr Amoth.

Lack of access to clean water has played a role in the disease’s rapid spread in informal settlements.
