Moses Kuria dumps Jubilee for Democratic Party – Nairobi News

Central Kenya leaders led by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria seems headed to the Democratic Party (DP) in what may accelerate the divisions in the ruling Jubilee Party.

On Friday Mr Kuria posted a picture of the party’s flag and lamp symbol and later posted that DP will be the party of choice for leaders in Mt Kenya.

“To all my detractors out there, let us meet at the grassroots. DP is the party of the region. We leave the others to (Nominated MP Maina) Kamanda,” Kuria said in his post.

A section of DP’s leadership, led by Deputy Secretary General Wambugu Nyamu, opposed Mr Kuria’s move and affiliation but later retracted their statement.

FORMAL APPLICATION

Mr Nyamu said they were rejecting Mr Kuria’s move since he had not made a formal application or contacted the DP leadership.

“Kuria had publicly indicated he wants to join our party without informing us. He even formed a WhatsApp group named Democratic Party on Friday morning. But he later called the chairman on phone and was welcomed and allowed to publicise the party,” said Mr Nyamu.

He disclosed that Mr Kuria is permitted to promote the party and its stands such as support for the political truce between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

The Gatundu South MP is known for his controversial remarks, the most recent being when he blamed President Kenyatta for failing to initiate development projects in Central Kenya.

When contacted, DP National Chairman Esau Kioni said that the MP had not called him but added that Mr Kuria is welcome to the 27-year-old political party.

KURIA WELCOME

“Kuria’s support is welcome though according to the law, he would lose his seat in Parliament if he ditches Jubilee formally. There are many other politicians including sitting elected leaders and those who lost in the last election who have shown interest in joining DP,” said Mr Kioni.

But he was quick to point out that Mr Kuria may have made his intention public to test the opinion of his supporters.

He said the party’s national executive council (NEC) held a meeting in Nairobi and passed a resolution to rebrand and prepare for the 2022 elections.

Mr Kioni said DP will field a presidential candidate to face off with other aspirants who include Deputy President William Ruto.

HUGE FOLLOWING

Hotelier Patrick Munene Kairu, who is also a member of the party and who unsuccessfully vied for the Nyeri governor’s seat in the last election, said the DP national office resolved to embrace Mr Kuria because of his huge following in Mt Kenya and his outspoken nature.

“We are also reaching out to Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya and his PNU, Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua and Nairobi politician Peter Kenneth to dissolve their parties and join us so that we can form one formidable political outfit,” said Mr Kairu.

He said that a host of sitting MPs, senators and governors have approached the party silently seeking membership as they prepare for 2022 elections.

APPROACHED DP

Though the party officials decline to reveal the names of these politicians, sources told the Nation that among those who have approached DP are businessman Jimmy Wanjigi, former Kiambu governor William Kabogo, Mr Kenneth and Mr Kamanda.

Others mentioned are former Kirinyaga Senator Daniel Karaba, his rival Charles Kibiru and former Murang’a senator Kembi Gitura.

The source also said the party, which refused to dissolve to join Jubilee, is receiving funding from wealthy politicians and entrepreneurs from Central Kenya.

On Mr Kuria’s intention to vie for presidency in 2022, Mr Kioni said his party cannot assure him the ticket but he will have to compete with other candidates who will seek the DP ticket.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Love At First Sight?

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
