Kenya: Raila attacks MPs over alleged compromise on graft

Published

Odinga

Opposition leader Raila Odinga launched a scathing attack on Parliament, a day after he returned from a State visit to India, saying some legislators were protecting graft suspects. Raila, speaking on Monday at Kanyimach village in Migori during the burial of former Migori Senator Ben Oluoch Okello, asked MPs to remain above reproach and give Kenyans hope.

“Members of Parliament must lead by example. MPs must protect the people. If they are going to be accomplices in this, then Kenyans must think twice,” said Raila.
The former premier warned MPs that history would judge them harshly if they became accomplices in economic crimes currently under active investigations by various Government agencies.

He cited the current investigations into the existence of contraband sugar recently impounded in various parts of the country, saying members of the joint committee picked to investigate the matter were involved in side shows. Saying Parliament had no investigative powers, Raila advised legislators to leave the sugar issue to investigative agencies.

Parliament last week declined to endorse a report tabled by a select committee appointed to investigate the sugar scandal after Speaker Justin Muturi led MPs in rejecting it on claims it was  shoddy and incomplete. Raila said institutions fighting corruption had been energised and were working, adding that Kenyans should support them. “We need to give them power to continue fighting corruption,” said Raila. He added: “The MPs must handle corruption issues with care or they will find themselves on the wrong side of history.

We don’t want a situation where you send a hungry dog to go catch a man with meat. They will take the meat and leave the thief to get away with goods.”

Raila said it was needless to summon the same individuals being investigated by various institutions. The ODM leader said MPs must respect constitutional institutions and commissions.

Raila, again, defended his handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta, saying he had no regrets because the peace pact had brought stability in the country.

Michael B. Jordan Makes GQ’s 2018 Men of the Year List

Published

on

GQ revealed its 2018 Men of the Year winners on Monday and named the 31-year-old actor its Leader of the Year. 



It’s certainly been an exciting time for Jordan. Not only did he have a lead role in the box-office hit Black Panther, but he also starred in Creed II, which hits theaters this month. In addition, he’s set to appear in the 2020 film Just Mercy and balances it all while running his own production company, Outlier Society Productions. 

“I want to be worldwide,” the star told the magazine, listing off Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprioand Will Smith as some of his inspirations.

 Granted, this doesn’t leave him with a lot of time to devote to his personal life, especially dating. 

“My career is awesome. It is going great. There’s other places in my life that I’m f–king lacking at. I’m very mature and advanced in a lot of areas of life. Dating may not be one of ’em,” he said. “My personal life is not. I don’t really know what dating is.”

Instead, Jordan is more focused on “trying to work on myself and build this empire.”

ordan has been in the biz since an early age. As fans will recall, he landed the role of Wallace on The Wire at age 14. He then acted in a number of TV shows, including All My Children, The AssistantsFriday Night Lights and Parenthood. Still auditioning was never easy, especially when he was often going up against his friends for the same role.“You feel like you’re pitted against each other, in hindsight,” he said. “I was like, ‘Damn! Everybody should be able to, like, work and grow and eat together. We’re not. Well, then, I guess there’s not enough roles.”

As result, he knew there was only one solution.

“I guess the only logical thing to do is to create more roles,” he said.

As Hollywood continues to become more diverse and underrepresented stories continue to be told, Jordan continues to aspire for greatness.

“I remember when it used to be like, ‘He’s the next Will Smith,'” he told the publication. “Now I’m the example of the next—they’re looking for the next me.”

Jordan isn’t GQ’s only cover star this year. The magazine also named Jonah Hill Director of the Year and Henry Golding Star of the Year. Serena Williams was also named Champion of the Year.
