“With the “Mulika Mwizi” phone, we managed to speak with our families, CORD leaders Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang’ula,” said the Kitutu Masaba MP. The three Jubilee MPs — Kuria, Ngunjiri and Waititu — had cordial telephone chats with opposition leader Raila.The Gatundu South MP and the opposition leader agreed they would have lunch when the legislator was out of custody, while Ngunjiri said he did not mind attending a rally attended by Raila to show the need for peaceful coexistence.Kuria confirmed that they had a hearty conversation with Raila and agreed to meet.
Each of the male legislators — from CORD and Jubilee — spoke to Raila during the four days they were behind bars as they waited to be arraigned in court to answer to hate speech charges.
Eight politicians — Johnstone Muthama, Mohammed Junnet, Timothy Bosire, Moses Kuria, Kimani Ngunjiri, Ferdinand Waititu, Aisha Jumwa and Florence Mutua — were arrested on Tuesday and kept in the police cells until Friday when they were released on bond.
The male MPs were taken to Pangani police station while their female colleagues were held at Muthaiga.
Bosire said they used the smuggled phone to keep in touch with the outside world, but would hide the it every time they heard footsteps of a police officer.
Everyday as an entrepreneur I use every single thing I learnt at Spark.
I can see my strategy so clearly now and I’m a lot more confident of my impact By the way, I was on this ten week accelerator. I went to two, realised it was no-where near as good as Spark* and missed the rest.I snuck in for the big pitch day on the last night, and we won out of the 25 companies! I accepted though with a minor condition — that he assures me my favourite vegetable ‘Osuga’ will be in plenty, which he committed himself to. The startups we select go through a one week live in accelerator where their business models are strengthened and they are equipped with the tools they need to turn their startups into viable ventures.I cannot express enough the absolute joy that I have, for the visibility that Spark* has given me and for the networks and collaborations.You have surrounded me with the right people to fulfil my vision, put me in relationships with people who are like-minded and pointed me toward a new mission for the people that I work with. Thank you so much for all the incredible information you’ve invested in me.
