Stephen: He Surely Will Knock Jubilee Into Limbo?

It has begun. It is just “mass voter registration” yet the political temperatures on the ground are fever-peak. August 8th, 2017 is seven months until elections; Kenyans are starting to see angry divisions between UhuRuto camp and their erstwhile opponents.

 

Isaac Ruto

The current governor of Bomet county-Isaac Ruto is the man NASA is banking on to help tilt the scales in the Jubilee backyard. He, in conjunction with Baringo senator, Mr. Gideon Moi have for the past four years locked horns with the deputy president. Gideon and Isaac are hoping to use their popularity at the grass root level to frustrate the deputy president.

 

Following the meeting of NASA luminaries led by Raila Odinga in Bomet on February 5th, 2017, Isaack Ruto did not mince words as to which camp he belongs. When it was his turn to address the well attended meeting in Bomet, Ruto vilified the ruling party accusing it of a myriad of ills.

 

Of course politics and governance is a recurrent age-old topic. The work of UhuRuto administration is different from the work of being re-elected. For many months now, political analysts have been crafting election models that attempt to predict the winner of August polls with little reference to campaigns.

 

Based on the voter registration campaign, both Jubilee and NASA views the mass turnout as a prelude to what’s going to happen in August come the whistle. The huge turnout in Bomet in favor of the pposition is a pointer that’s giving Jubilee sleepless nights. The Rift Valley vote is crucial when the so called yranny of numbers statistics comes in handy and that’s why any change in terms of political allegiance is enough to shape the politics of this country.

 

Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka

Kalonzo Musyoka, I dare say, is perhaps the best president that’s yet to rule, has never ruled or one that never ruled. He boasts of stellar political career compared to the present and past players in the political arena. However, Kalonzo’s political chess board seems to get blurred when it comes to transforming virtues into votes. For more than twice he has been overshadowed one time by former president Mwai Kibaki and Raila Odinga. In the last polls of 2013, he again compromised on behalf of Raila Odinga.

 

This time round, he seems to have made a resolve once and for all. He seems not ready to play second fiddle again. Kalonzo has many times and again-during the on-going voter registration campaign stated that all the other presidential aspirants in NASA ought to give him a chance this time round. Most Kenyans believe he deserves it rightly. However, the curtain will still have to fall down on “our person”, “my tribe” “mtu wetu” syndrome.

 

No matter what Kalonzo Musyoka’s game plan is, the tribal politics in this country will still prevail. Political scientists such as Mutahi Ngunyi have on many occasions stated categorically that it is the tyranny of numbers that win elections. Majority wins, simple and that’s what NASA pundits have to endure with.

 

In the event that Kalonzo is given the mantle to lead NASA as their preferred candidate, then there is reason for Jubilee to really get afraid. For many years, Kalonzo has endeared himself to Kenyans across the entire country. The virtues adorning his character have never been tainted. Most Kenyans know him as a born again Christian and a man who hates corruption.

If Kenyans choose to buy his credentials, it might translate into votes. This should haunt Jubilee as the clock ticks towards August 8th. However, if Raila Odinga (read Luo Nyanza) still believes he is the one to deliver victory, you bet it will be business as usual for UhuRuto’s tyranny of numbers- and state house may as well continue to just govern.

A couple years ago, if you wanted a good beautiful car, you pretty much had to go with Mercedes or Lamborghini. Now, we are seeing compelling state-of-the art celebrity cars from various hardware makers.
Celebrities like to fancy-high priced cars in part because they can afford them, meaning they can tweak, customize or tailor their design architecture to suit their needs if they so desire.
However, celebrities cry too. The kind of insurance policies they get into often create a big dent in their pockets.

Every so often, celebrities would get rid of an old car and purchase a new one-making it difficult to keep trace of the number of cars they own.

Beyonce’s man was spotted with Exelero Sports Coupe whose price tag reads $450,000 only! This holy terror carries a yearly premium of a little more than $11,000. Exclusivity price tag indeed.

Just like the rest of us, celebrities do acknowledge the significance of insuring their most treasured belongings.

How To Rock And Be Safe On Stage

When it comes to “bringing ‘em back alive” no one shines like celebrity singers. From the local car lot to ships at Sea, singers know how to bring live to their audiences from almost anywhere. Celebrities know that one effective way to differentiate them from the breath-taking competition is to be seen outside in the community. This often means performing from outside the traditional studio setting.

Stage Performance: Celebrity Vulnerability
That sensual dressing, raunchy dance gyrations, plus suggestive lyrics are perfect tag-lines for selling sex. This catalytic package, as some might argue seems to expose the performing icons to the adrenaline-charged or better still, testosterone-charged male enthusiasts. That said, another query begs; how much fan attention can be regarded as excessive? One of Kenya’s celebrated female singers-Avril did find herself on the receiving end during her performance at Maasai Mara University. Highly charged male fans not only fondled her butt but took selfies with it. “Gosh, Maasai Mara University students showed me things” Avril quipped. While speaking to Zuqka, she did admit that the Mara University incident was not an isolated one.
                                 
It is not uncommon to find one or two electrified fans jumping onto stage due to excitement. This is expected but it can easily turn nasty if it’s not handled well; more so if the celebrity artiste is a female. It is thus, incumbent upon the event organizers to provide adequate security around the performing artiste. For one, it is not easy to manage a huge crowd. Secondly, it is unbecoming to touch someone, especially during such open shows without their consent. For instance, a female singer might be engaged and is looking forward to their wedding. Avril is one example and she admits her fiancé really gets infuriated when fans opt to take advantage of the situation to touch her inappropriately. Had it not been his fiancé’s maturity, perhaps things might have turned otherwise.
Having been tutored on stage by her fan’s behaviour, Avril admitted to having learnt key survival techniques while on stage. She has learnt to talk and calm them down whenever the situation threatens to go out of hand. The Maasai Mara University incident springs forth the fact that female artistes are indeed vulnerable, more so while performing ‘live’ on stage.

  • ·         Beyonce: In her recent visit to Sweden, she found herself in a similar saga. While performing in Denmark Beyonce was forced to ward off one of the fans who slapped her butt while making advances. She had mingled with fans while pelting out her single ‘irreplaceable’. She reacted by warning the charged fan; “I’ll have you escorted out right now, alright?”

  • ·         Rihanna: Rihanna’s recent show in the UK was yet another scene of celebrity vulnerability on stage. It is reported that she had to use a microphone to smack one of the electrified fans who refused to let go of her hand. Rihanna was performing her hit song, ‘we found love’.

Female celebrities, irrespective of where they are asked to perform will at one time be faced with unruly adrenaline-charged fans. Some of these fans consider them object of their desires. A number of artistes interviewed acknowledge that fans will always want to demand beyond what is written on the entry ticket.

What The Heck Nissan Rogue Is Up To?

 History

 It is finally here! 2017 Nissan Rogue is once again your perfect SUV. It is highly expected to car-walk the floors of major showrooms by autumn 2016.

Body Features

 

2017 Nissan Rogue is not accompanied by any extreme change except for a few minor alterations to give it a new look and feel. The new Nissan Rogue will retain the basic shape and dimensions of the current model. However, it is expected to wield unequalled interior upgrade with minimal mechanical changes.

 

A keen eye will spot its unique grille appearance, a much fancier aero body and the non-standard 18-inch alloy wheels. Current and previous models have 16-17 inch wheels. 2017 Nissan Rogue will be powered by the current 2.5 liter Four-Cylinder(4V) single engine of 170 horsepower and 175 pound feet of torque. Towing capacity will remain at 1500 pounds. It will use a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) gearbox for rapid acceleration. The new 2017 Nissan Rogue crossover will bank on a newly fitted suspension to cushion against bumps, acute corners and give you the cruise of your life. Front-wheel drive and All-wheel drive will carve out the new model from the rest.

 

2017 Nissan Rogue will carry a cool upgraded leathered interior loaded with numerous features including the most recent technological breakthroughs; Bluetooth connection, navigation system and key-less unlocking and ignition. It will also display xenon headlamps and rear-view camera. Its navigation system is very simple to use unlike in other Nissan Models. If you think you will continue littering around then learn to stop because the new Nissan Rogue has been designed to handle all your cargo and garbage. It comes with centrally placed console bins and a cargo-bay organizer among other unique handling and disposal features.

 

Safety Features

 

2017 Nissan Rogue will continue to allay fears of road uncertainties by embedding its safety policies in its design. The front-wheel drive will counter traction and off-line slipping while all-wheel drive will pull out the Rogue in messy grounds. An installed anti-skid system will prevent swerving. And, anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes will come in handy during emergency halts. Side airbags will cushion you from side collisions and in case of a sudden rollover.

 

Competition

 

The anticipated 2017 Nissan Rogue is already strategical on how to march along its colleagues; Subaru Forester, Ford Escape and Honda CR-V. Subaru Forester is very stable with a huge cargo and passenger volume. Ford Escape has a dull interior but boasts unusual tech intricacy; it can simply auto park. Honda CR-V has been dragging behind in terms of innovation. However, Honda is at an advanced stage to deliver a complete makeover of 2007 Vintage CR-V.

 

2017 Nissan Rogue will definitely rock your world.
