Corridors of power

A top Jubilee honcho from Central Kenya was yesterday seen wheeling a huge briefcase into a strategic parastatal located within Nairobi’s upper hill area. The politician shocked many when he entered the building with the huge bag which he refused to handover to security officials for a routine security check. It is not clear why the politician was wheeling that huge bag into the building in the mid-morning hours in what raised concerns that the former lawmaker could have gone to cart away some documents or money. The offices of the parastatals are usually a beehive of activities during Thursdays and Friday’s as politicians squeeze their way in for handouts.



Was a key Deputy President William Ruto advisor taken aback by the fury of Chama Cha Mashinani leaders during a meeting with former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto at his Chepalungu home on Thursday? Well, our mole who attended the meeting said the DP’s aide remained anxious as he listened in awe to the politicians dress down the DP for undermining the former governor. Unable to believe what he heard, the aide often walked in and out of the meeting on numerous occasions as if to speak to his master on the developments. Some of the CCM delegates said they had not forgiven the DP and would not allow the governor to work with the deputy president unless he offered a public apology for the humiliation he caused.


A vocal ANC MP could soon find himself in a vicious marital tussle if he doesn’t move fast to accept paternity of a child he allegedly sired with a university student. The girl was a conspicuous figure during the politician’s 2017 parliamentary campaigns ostensibly as a second wife. The corridors of power is aware that the politician who rented a three-bedroom house for the girl in Nairobi’s Eastlands area immediately after the last election is trying to run away from taking responsibility for his child well aware that the ‘wife’ is in school and doesn’t have any source of income. It is now six months since the MP stepped in his Eastlands home although he is said to be sending money. However, the girl is getting concerned because the MP doesn’t pick calls and anytime she rings him, he responds with an MPesa. The girl is said to be planning a legal duel should the lawmaker remain doggy.



A furious President Uhuru Kenyatta is said to have thrown his hand contemptuously at vocal female MP from central Kenya during a meeting at the Central regional commissioner’s residence on Thursday. The head of state who was pissed off by the politician’s latest onslaught against him refused to shake her hand and was seen in some quite of soliloquy as he walked away during the meeting. Is time up for politicians who have been taking on the president of late? Well, in the fullness of time the truth will come out.
