Mutahi Ngunyi’s “Tyranny of Death” on Mutula Kilonzo’s death

Mutahi Ngunyi

The blogosphere is spinning after a tweet by Mutahi Ngunyi seemed to implicate certain political quarters in the death of Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo. Mutahi well known for his Tyranny of Numbers hypothesis prior to the March 4th general elections came up with a theory as to how or why Mutula died. The tweet read: “An aborted revolution has a way of eating its own children. Two ODM MPs died immediately after the 2007 election. What ate Mutula and why?” The tweet was drawing a parallel to the deaths of two ODM MPs in 2007 after the elections. The two…

Video:Tracing Kilonzo’s Last Moments

Who was Mutula Kilonzo? Many have described him as zealous, hardworking and a man who spoke his mind, when he wore his business suit that is. But every weekend when Mutula took time off to retreat to his rural home in Maanzoni just kilometers from Machakos town, he would retreat into a cocoon that saw him spend hours alone if not with his favorite pastime, his lions and other wild animals that he kept. Evelyn Wambui visited his Maanzoni home tucked deep inside the bushes and retraces his final moments and how those close to him remember him.

Clean men a turn off to women?

metro

It is assumed that women are extremely keen on personal hygiene and cleanliness, but as LYDIA LIMBE writes, while dirty men are a no go zone, women aren’t falling over themselves to ensnare men who are ‘too clean’ either When Catherine first met Patrick, she was struck by his meticulous sense of order. He looked sharp, like a male model straight from a magazine and he was lean, tall and confident. Lillian, on the other hand, met Morris on her first day in campus. She thought he was cute and was immediately taken in by his neat dreadlocks. She also…

VIDEO: Kenyan Artist Uses Racy Subjects to Show ‘Real’ Kenya

For example, Soi did a series of paintings on Nairobi strip clubs,…

AFP – Six months ago, Jane Adhiambo Achieng walked into a local Kenyan bank with the hope of getting a loan for her small grocery business. After providing all the paperwork and after weeks of back and forth between her and bank officials, she was turned down. “They just told me I don’t qualify. My income was too little,” said 42-year-old Achieng, who was asking for some $250 — about half her monthly turnover — to expand her fruit and vegetable stall in the Kenyan capital. But in early March, she applied for the same amount through a different source…
