Ladies, what would you do if your ex, and most notably father of your two daughters walked down the isle? Most probably, you would …
The entire world has been left in utter shock after details emerged of an online game that targets teen and pushes them to take their lives …
Like a scene from the movie Triple 9, some hardcore thugs in Jozzi robbed a G4S transit van in broad daylight! These thugs in SA don’t joke brah! And what’s with G4S vans getting robbed? These guys can’t catch a break, now SA thugz are jacking them? Eish! Check out the video of how the robbery went down…
A group of suspects, travelling in a BMW and Mercedes-Benz, confronted the van at about 11.40am on the R24 near Barbara Road towards the airport, the SA Police said in a statement.
The suspects shot out a tyre of the van on the busy highway before confronting the guards.
The guards were forced out of the vehicle before the suspects blew up the van with explosives. The suspects took an undisclosed amount of money in cash boxes and one of the guard’s firearm.
They then fled from the scene in two vehicles. The guards were not injured.
Pandemonium broke out on the highway. The video posted on social media shows cars making a U-turn to get away from the scene.

One of the worst things that can happen to you in Kenya is being arrested on a Friday. That means you will have to be in a cell for the whole weekend, and the earliest you can be taken to court is on a Monday. That’s what happened to popular blogger Cyprian Nyakundi. Nyakundi who is known to write on controversial matters and take bigwigs head on has been arrested before, especially for his long-standing criticism with Safaricom. Last year, Nyakundi was found guilty of contempt of court after publishing information about Collymore.
However, the dispute didn’t begin today, or December. The feud between Nyakundi and the Safaricom boss began immediately after the latter took over from Michael Joseph. Back then, Lady Justice Njuguna issued a temporary order stopping the blogger from publishing any defamatory stuff about Safaricom or Bob Collymore. But who is Cyprian Nyakundi? He went aheaqd and published, then said he’d not been given any documents on the order. That was then, and the blogger has continued.

So on Saturday the lad tweeted that he’d been arrested by five CID officers and taken to Central Police station, adding that he was to be arraigned in court this Monday. He’s been tweeting from there, and one doesn’t cease but wonder how. He’s gone head-on against Bob Collymore once again, and the tweetsphere seems to be behind him.

Here is part of the reaction from KoT;
When police on cohorts with your tormentor want to intimidate you, they arrest you on Friday. #CollymoreVsNyakundi

Cyprian appeared before the court today and fined KShs. 300,000 or four months in jail for contempt of court.
Earlier today, digital taxi service provider Uber announced a raise in their fares. Now the minimum amount of fare is KShs. 300, a hundred bob more from the usual Kshs. 200 in Nairobi while in Mombasa it increased from KShs. 150 to KShs. 200. Also, they have been charging KShs. 35 for every kilometre traveled, but the revision means you will be supposed to pay Kshs 42 from now henceforth. “Prices are designed to encourage more riders on the road, to help increase trips for drivers, but equally, you want to make sure the basic economics of drivers are sustainable,” read part of their press release.
Clearly Uber have taken into consideration their drivers’ demands, since they demonstrated recently after Uber cut their prices by 35% to brush off the competition that was being brought by other companies offering similar services. The drivers threatened to switch allegiance to companies like LittleCab which had a better deal compared to Uber back then. LittleCab is co owned by Safaricom and Craft Silicon.
This comes a day after Equity bank announced a dip in their profits, putting the country’s economy on the scope. Hard economic times? Maybe. But prior to this, many questioned the tactics employed by Uber which began by seductive rates that threw local taxis out of business. They were charging KShs. 60 per Kilometre but reduced it to KShs. 35 mid last year. Many argued that Uber literally wanted to have them out and monopolise it before they capitalise on that and hike their prices.
Meanwhile, the charges per minute remain unchanged at KShs. 3 while the base fare for Mombasa rose from KShs. 50 to KShs. 70. For the starters, the charges per minute are the charges you incur if by any chance you get stuck in traffic and the fuel consumption has to go on as well as time spent on you. It makes sense businesswise, more especially in Nairobi where traffic is a nuisance.
we might be instilling knowledge to our young ones but clearly, we are failing to instill morals into them. Mid last year, a group of students in Eldoret was caught in a rented house drinking alcohol and having sex by the area chief. The area residents had tipped Kapsoya Chief who came and busted the five boys and a girl in that house.
Well, it seems we aren’t far from hearing such stories again, as another group of students was caught last night engaging in similar activities in Eldoret. According to Mpasho.com, 24 teenagers were caught drinking booze and having sex in a house in… Guess where? Kapsoya, Eldoret!
Apparently, the area residents complained of increased immorality in the area and reported to the authorities who, once again, sprung to action.
“The students are suspected to have been engaging in immorality like sex and drinking alcohol but we are investigating,” the officer commanding Kapsoya Police post, Daniel Sidindi is quoted by Mpasho.
What is going on in Kenya? Why are we sleeping on our jobs because clearly, we are. Parents have left all the responsibility to the teachers who have as well left it to the parents. So the kids are on their own, with so much freedom. It’s time we woke up and smelled the coffee.
Former KTN news anchor Edith Kimani must be living her dreams. After emerging as the winner in KTN’s reality show The Presenter, she went on to be one of the most admired journalists in Kenya. Her strong authoritative voice and command of language made her carve her own niche and soon she was among the biggest news anchors.
She resigned about a year ago from KTN, and went on to become a correspondent for Germany’s Deutsche Welle TV (DW- TV) in East Africa.
Earlier this year, the former screen siren relocated to Berlin Germany and as many predicted, she has now confirmed that she will be back on the screens again, on DW-TV.
Through it’s official twitter handle, DW posted a video of Edith with the caption, “Meet
@Edith_kimani, the newest addition to our Berlin newsroom, and join her as she discovers the history of the art-rich German capital”

We wish Edith all the best as she embarks on a new phase of her interesting journey.
A few days ago, some lad from Zambia was trending after he walked down the aisle with his mother. Yes, his real mother. It stunned many and was rebuked in strong words, and not only because they wed, but because they were expecting a kid together.
Now in a dramatic turn of events, the man has divorced his wife, sorry mother, and alleged that she cast a spell on him. This, according to Zambian Observer, is after the man allegedly visited a pastor in South Africa who prayed for him. It is said that the man fell to his knees and began vomiting when pastor Mboro prayed for him, and his eyes were opened to see the charm his mother had been using.
“I though it was love,not knowing she was putting juju in my food to keep me blinded.If It was not for the Prophet’s prayers I would still be under her spell,” he is quoted by the Zambian Observer.
The couple had gone to South Africa for honeymoon when the revelation happened to the husband (sic, should I say son?) after he met the pastor in a crusade and he dumped the bride.
If you have been to whatsapp today (which I am sure you have), then you must have noticed that it’s a whole new experience. We woke up to a whatsapp we’re not used to, one that enables you use photos, videos and GIFs to create message stories.
This is very much similar to Snapchat, who register over 2.5 billion snaps every day. Facebook is known to have bought Whatsapp last year for a whooping $19 billion and the owner is known to try many things in improving their services to social media users. By the way, last year Facebook brought a key Instagram feature (Instagram stories) to Facebook and it seems he is doing the same by cloning Snapchat’s most interesting feature.
The status have a 24-hour lifespan, but you can change. So instead of the three options, now you have four with the new one being the camera option which you can use to go live, take photos or a video, caption it and edit before posting it to your audience.
What do you think of these new features?
Colors are some of the greatest symbols. Different colors play different roles wherever they appear, even in flags. Like the Kenyan flag for instance; black color represents the people, green represents vegetation, white peace and red, blood that was shed during the fight for independence. But that’s not all, colors mean more than just that.
Red is the color of victory. It’s the winners color. It’s largely been used to show danger, but deeply it’s denoted from fights. The warrior who did slay many enemies was the victor, and he wore red. He was dangerous. Notice in many competitions, the team that wears red always emerges the winner. In football for instance, the teams donning red (Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Ajax Amsterdam) have a rich winning history. Even in politics, just take a look at past occurrences.
You guessed right. Black is the devil’s color. In the African Traditional Societies, so many things were forbidden to be done in the dark. Whistling, eating in darkness, calling out somebody’s name and many more. They said ghosts lurked in the darkness and it was dangerous. It still is believed that Black is evil, look at it’s associations. Black magic, Black Friday (Friday 13th), Black spot (you know what happens at such a place, right?). And many people dread a black cat crossing their part when they’re traveling, that automatically becomes the end of their journey because, allegedly, a black cat portends bad luck.
Well, white is the opposite of black. That’s how it’s denoted in many things. So white means clean. White means peace in all aspects. We use white doves to symbolize peace. When a boxer is in a ring and wants to surrender, they throw in a white towel.
Grey is an intermediate of black and white. It has traces of both aspects and therefore confuses. It’s the color of deception. It lies to some people that the whole issue is black, as well as deceiving the rest that it’s white. It seeks to satisfy both sides and as a result lies a lot. A famous preacher uses the example of horses. he says of the dark horse, white horse, then the grey horse, which he says lies to believers that it’s white hence misleading them.
The most decorated color. This color is so beautiful, and it’s much celebrated. It’s a relative to red, and has the winning genes, like the red one. But it’s a color of disappointments in most cases. It rarely wins. Take a look at most teams with Orange as their jersey color, they do really well. But at the homestretch, they falter. Remember the South Africa world cup 2010? Remember Netherlands? Remember Ivory Coast football team?
