Several  Kenyans gathered together on Sunday  May 17, 2015 in an occasion known as ‘CELEBRATE’ to celebrate one of their own, Mr. Geoffrey Sankale Soyiantet popularly known as ‘Connection 33.’ Mr Soyiantet has been identified as one of the most outstanding and selfless member of the St Louis Community. Mr. Soyiantet aka  ‘Connection 33′  has a business on Cargo bay where he majors in Sales and Marketing of all Kenyan services.

D4KIDZ SOCCER

“What Geoffrey has done no one person or group has done.” Said one of the guest called Mr.Kirika. Everyone who was present endorsed this message. ”Geoffrey is a selfless man who respects and interacts with all. You will find him running around with kids and the next time he is story telling with the elderly.  He mentors, coaches and encourages the youth to reach their highest potential.” Many people praised him for his level of trust. New resident to Saint Louis, Mr. Samuel Mwangi  praised  Geoffrey and said he has become a stepping stone to new residents  and helps them settle.

 Susan Gitema was emotional when she shared how Geoffrey has assisted her and her colleagues with various needs without complaining or getting tired. Speaking on behalf of the elderly who in St Louis are called the ‘Group Nine’ Susan said that Geoffrey is the kind of a person one knows for sure he will answer your call with a smile even at the wee hours of the night to send money or load airtime to call Kenya.

 Agatha Kinuthia I9, a college student and studying to be a gynecologist,  represented the youth and students. She expressed her gratitude to Geoffrey and said that he has been a great resource and a mentor. She told the gathering that Geoffrey  offers opportunities for youth to develop leadership and accumulate community service thus  making it easy to qualify for college scholarship.

INVESTMENT FORUM

The ceremony was held at Geoffrey’s  residence where he was honored with various gift, prayers and words of appreciation. He was also honored with a gift certificate with all the signatories of those present.Visiting preacher Bishop Chege in his word of encouragement (Roman 13:6-7) told the crowd to honor people when they are ‘due’ not when they are ‘past due’. He said that the deeds of Geoffrey resembled those of a good man in the bible called Cornelius.

All the people in the gathering commended his wife Purity. Behind every successful man there is a strong and encouraging woman.  Purity has been the pillar holding Geoffrey and their two beautiful girls. Everybody affirmed that Purity is an understanding woman and a great help to the husband. Geoffrey is married to Purity and they have two children –Abbieand Soila.

CELEBRATE  is a movement that was formed by Jane Gichane and Zellipah Githui of St Louis in 2011  with the ultimate purpose to appreciate individuals who touch and influence lives of other people. In most cases as Kenyans we usually appreciate people and tell of what they have done or how they have touched our lives when they are either in great need or in their memorial services. CELEBRATE was formed to appreciate people when they are still alive and energetic and in so doing that motivates them to continue doing better. CELEBRATE does not celebrate already designated leaders or appointed leaders of organization, but rather focuses on leaders withouttitles who reach out to the community. The closing statement from the founders was CELEBRATE never ends. Everyday you have an opportunity to celebrate someone and tell them thank you for all they do.Why don’t you pick up your phone today and call Geoffrey and other people who have touched your lives and just let them know?

Court Orders Arrest of Jeff Koinange and Tony Gachoka

jeff-koinange_2

A Nairobi court on Wednesday issued a warrant of arrest against journalist Jeff Koinange and businessman Tony Gachoka for disobeying its orders.

Nairobi Senior Resident Magistrate Maisy Chesang issued the arrest order after Mr Koinange and Mr Gachoka failed to appear in court to answer charges of discussing the conduct of a company in the media despite a court order barring the same.

The offence was allegedly committed on ‘Jeff Koinage Live’ show that the journalist hosts on KenyaTelevision Network(KTN)

“A warrant of arrest is issued against the two respondents for failing to honuor the summons to appear in court. The warrant will be effected through the complainants’ advocates,” ruled the magistrate.

MASSIVE LOSSES

The decision was a result of a complaint by businessman Jimi Wanjigi, Mr Sani Mbui Wanjigi and Kwacha Group of Companies Limited.

They had obtained orders on March 20 barring Mr Koinange, KTN and the Standard Media Group from broadcasting or publishing alleged defamatory statements concerning them and the company.

Despite serving the order, the three complained that Mr Koinange invited Mr Gachoka on his show on April 1 and went ahead to discuss what they were barred from broadcasting.

According to their lawyer Nicholas Nyamai, the broadcast has caused the companymassive losses and undermined the court’s authority.

He wants the company paid a total of Sh60 million as compensation for defamation.

The case is scheduled for hearing on June 5.

Burundi President Nkurunziza faces attempted coup

_82976306_027186898-2

A coup attempt has been launched in Burundi to try to overthrow President Pierre Nkurunziza, amid unrest over his bid to be re-elected to a third term.

Thousands of people in the capital, Bujumbura, celebrated the announcement by Major General Godefroid Niyombare.

However, the outcome of the coup is far from clear.

President Nkurunziza is currently in Tanzania. The presidency said the coup had been foiled and the perpetrators would be brought to justice.

Mr Nkurunziza has been meeting other East African leaders to discuss the crisis. Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete said the summit condemned the coup.

Latest Burundi and Africa updates

A statement from the Burundi presidency said: “It is with regret that we have learned that a group from the armed forces mutinied this morning and declared an imaginary coup.

Media captionIn an address on a private radio station, Gen Niyombareh said the government was dissolved

“This coup attempt has been foiled and that these people, who read the coup announcement on the radio, are being hunted by defence and security forces so that they can be brought to justice.”

‘Overthrown’

The BBC’s Maud Jullien in Bujumbura says thousands of protesters marched to the city centre alongside soldiers and two tanks after the coup was announced.

Police shot at the soldiers and the crowd. At least two protesters were killed.

What I can see right now is a lot of police checks on the road, they are stopping every vehicle, ensuring that those travelling are not carrying any weapons. We can see truckloads of army personnel driving past where I am standing, perhaps trying to get them to military bases.

When the general made the announcement there was a mixed reaction and some gunfire around the capital. In some parts there was panic and fear; people were running to safety, locking themselves into any building they could find. But there were also those who were celebrating, saying that this is what they wanted.

Mama n

The protesters continued to march, one telling the BBC this was a victory after weeks of protests.

They reached the offices of the state broadcaster which was still in the control of soldiers loyal to the president.

There are some reports that forces supporting the coup are now trying to enter the building and are meeting resistance.

Other reports say those loyal to the president and those supporting the coup are now in negotiations.

BBC reporters in the capital say that protesters have broken into the national jail and have released detained demonstrators, before burning down the building.

All international flights into and out of Bujumbura are currently cancelled.

Coup bid leader: Gen Godefroid Niyombare, 46

  • Former rebel CNDD-FDD commander and ally of President Nkurunziza
  • First ethnic Hutu army chief – a significant step in reconciliation efforts
  • A negotiator in peace talks with last rebel group FNL
  • Oversaw Burundi’s deployment to Somalia as part of African force
  • Served as ambassador to Kenya
  • Dismissed as intelligence chief in February three months after his appointment
  • Dismissal came days after he recommended against the third-term bid
line

Electoral process

Gen Niyombare, in a statement read to reporters in a military base, said he did not recognise the leadership because the president’s bid for a third term violated the constitution.

In a radio broadcast on a private station, Gen Niyombare said: “The masses have decided to take into their own hands the destiny of the nation to remedy this unconstitutional environment into which Burundi has been plunged.

“The masses vigorously and tenaciously reject President Nkurunziza’s third-term mandate… President Pierre Nkurunziza has been relieved of his duties. The government is overthrown.”

Gen Niyombare’s “national salvation committee” comprises at least five other army and police generals.

He said in the radio broadcast that the mission of the body was the “restoration of national unity… and the resumption of the electoral process in a peaceful and fair environment”.

The unrest began on 26 April and has led to the deaths of more than 20 people.

Tens of thousands of Burundians have fled to neighbouring states in recent weeks.

The Ten Commandments Used To Please A Woman

love

So Steve Harvey appeared on the Dr. Phil show this past Tuesday and talked about how men think, gave advice, and talked a little about his new book. He also mentioned ten “commandments” that if used correctly and consistently, you will satisfy your woman. How do they look from a girl’s perspective? I’ll go over these myself and talk a little about each one, just to give you an idea.

01). Thou Shalt Give Her Free Time.

This really shouldn’t be mentioned. It seems like it should be common sense that no one wants to spend 24/7 with someone else. Both sides just continue to get aggravated. I definitely do need my free time just because I am more introverted and I can’t think/do the things I want to do when I’m with other people. Eventually, I would get sick of having them around all the time. And I really wouldn’t want to take them away from the things they want to do. Long story short: Everyone needs time apart, even from their significant other!

02). Thou Shalt Remember The Small Things.

This actually does get you brownie points, believe it or not. It lets me know that the time we spent hanging out or the things I talk about with you are important enough that they stick in your head and you actually remember them. For example, I was hanging out during lunch with a few of my friends in the band room. My friend and I were having a fight that included throwing walnuts and other small foods. Since they were his walnuts, he wasn’t giving me much of a chance to fight back. I had said that maybe I just want to eat the walnuts and he had said, “No, I remember you saying that you don’t like walnuts”. That kinda stuck out to me since we had had that conversation weeks before that moment. If you remember details about us, we remember you.

03). Thou Shalt Consistently Think Of New Ways To Say I Love You.

I definitely agree with this. It also ties in with #02 about being remembered and letting me know that I do in fact stick in your head. If you continue to do the same thing over and over, it becomes very routine and I expect it more, whereas if it was something different, it’s more spontaneous and I just don’t expect it. A lot of girls would react a lot more pleasantly to something different and to something that they wasn’t expecting (given that it’s something good of course, but even if it’s a bad idea, it’s still the thought that counts).

04). Thou Shalt Chip In.

This isn’t the 1950’s. I am no one’s maid, mother, or slave. If I’m living with you, I do indeed expect you to chip in. Trust me, it’s not a good situation to get into if you aren’t helping out. You will lose, badly. Just don’t go there.

05). Thou Shalt Help With The Kids.

Just like #04, I do expect you to help with the kids. You contributed to making them, they are partly your responsibility. I will certainly not watch my significant other not spend time/not help out with their own children. Again, it’s just not a good situation; you will lose; don’t go there.

06). Thou Shalt Embrace The Art Of Foreplay.

Indeed, you must! I am not a sex robot; wind me up and watch me go. If you do favors for me, I’m definitely going to do favors for you. I know it’ll require some work, but it’s a road worth traveling. In addition, it will save you some mornings with an irritable wife. Trust me.

07). Thou Shalt Respect Her Schedule.

Again, definitely agree. I am not about to drop something that I love or something that I’m dedicated to for someone else and I wouldn’t ask that upon my significant other. It also ties in with #01 and spending time apart so one doesn’t suffocate the other. My schedule is my schedule and if someone likes/loves me enough then they will let me do the things that I also love to do. It will increase my happiness, lower my bitchiness (unless something happens while I’m there, but at least it’s not about you), and it also gives me something to talk about with you. Win, win, win.

08). Thou Shalt Send Her Roses, Just Because.

I think this is the only one I will slightly disagree with. It doesn’t have to be roses. It can be any sort of flower that you think she’ll like. Maybe I don’t even like flowers at all. Something special and tangible, but also in your price range so it can happen more than just an annual rate. It lets me know that I’m being thought of and it will stick in my head. It doesn’t even have to cost money! A poem, a song, whatever your talents are, use them!

09). Thou Shalt Remember The Golden Rule.

You can be happy or you can be right. This is in fact the Golden Rule. I don’t know why; it just is.

10). Thou Shalt Always Take Her Side.

I don’t know why, but when a lot of women, including myself, don’t feel like their significant other is standing up for them, no matter what we said, it’s equivalent to an act of ultimate betrayal. If anyone can give me a scientific/biological reason as to why, I would love to know! I just can’t help feeling like it’s something personal when it could in fact just be my significant other expressing their opinion. Even though I attempt to not do this, a lot of women will be very snide and sarcastic when talking to you until you talk about with her or they give up and talk about it with you. Unless you take her side, it’s a battle lost.

Those are the 10 Commandments to pleasing your woman as listed by Steve Harvey! Please note that the opinions expressed in this blog entry do not reflect the opinion of the entire female gender. In fact, this is solely my opinion. Any stories, opinions, or biological findings should go in the comment box! Please your woman!
