Donations to activist Okiya Omtata has reached Sh370,000 as generous Kenyans lend him a hand to pursue public interest litigations.

Mr Omtata started receiving donations last Friday after Kenyans online started a campaign to thank him for his lawsuits challenging government decisions.

The activist has already filed a case challenging President Uhuru Kenyatta’s new tax imposed on petroleum products.

In the petition, Mr Omtatah says the tax, which came into effect on September 1, is irregular and unlawful. He argues that implementation of the tax is contrary to Article 47 of the constitution and has impacted negatively on costs of essential goods and commodities.

The activist told Nairobi News that he has no plans of utilising the money donated for now until further consultations. He added that every cent spent from the donations will be accounted for.

LOCK IT ON M-SHWARI

“I was not part of the people who made the appeal and so I can’t take it as personal money. I will lock it on M-Shwari and await consultations and ensure I utilize it in an accountable manner,” Omtata told Nairobi News.

The donations to Mr Omtatah started after a Facebook user appealed to every ‘working’ Kenyan to send a Sh10 donation to the activist.

The user explained that the donation would be as a form of kurudisha mkono and for ‘photocopy and bus fare’.

“Every working Kenyan should M-Peas Omtata Sh10 for photocopy bus fare na lunch. It should total Sh240 million,” wrote Kaka Baba.

The donations are being sent via M-Pesa to 0722 684777.

A woman who claims to have discovered that her boyfriend had cheated on her has revealed how she got her own back – and it’s “pure evil.”

TikTok user Thea Loveridge said after she and her partner gave birth to their son, she discovered that he had been cheating on her the whole time she was pregnant with his ex, who she claims “caused drama” in their relationship.

Shortly after she found out, “he ended up going to jail”.

During this time, Thea said: “She was messaging him trying to figure out where he was, all confused why he wasn’t talking to her.”

But instead of telling her the truth about what really happened, “I messaged her and told her that he was dead” – and she didn’t stop there.

After getting his sister to go along with her plan too, she held a fake funeral for him and even sent out photos of the service.

“It’s been three years and she still thinks he’s dead,” he revealed.

“She posts little tributes every year on her Facebook page to the love of her life and how she’s so sorry that she couldn’t be there when he died to save him.”

Since being posted, the video has racked up more than 1.1 million likes and almost 16,000 comments from viewers who were in hysterics over the lengths she went to.

One person said: “‘That uhm he was dead,'” adding a laughing emoji.

Most people are eagerly waiting to see Vera Sidika having her own kid(s). Over the years, rumours and photoshopped images of her with a baby bump have circulated the internet; and she’s rarely bothered by them. The fact that she bleached her skin makes it more interesting for fans who claim she will only give birth to dark skin babies.

Vera Comfortable With Mauzo

Even though the curvy socialite has been in many relationships, she didn’t seem to be ready to get kids with the men she had before; including Otile. At one time, she disclosed that she’ll only get kids with the person she will be ready to settle with. Vera might have just found the gem she was looking for; she seems comfortable with her current boyfriend Brown Mauzo, who she claims is treating her like the queen she is.

On her Insta story Q&A, she disclosed that wedding plans are underway; but she will only do a white wedding after the pandemic, to make it interesting. One of her fans asked;

”Should we await a white wedding maybe from you guys au hamtaki sherehe kubwa?”

Vera’s response;

”Yes. White wedding InshaAllah. Not now though. No ceremony is fun in this pandemic.”

In the same Q&A, Vera also disclosed she will get kids with Brown Mauzo in 2 years time.

I bet this is a long time for her online fans, who expect her to get a kid sooner; but it will be one of the greatest moments for the fans.
