Kenya: Corridors of Power

A top city politician caused panic in a popular joint in Buru Buru last week collapsed in the course of entertaining two women in a room. The man known for his amorous escapades is said to have taken a dose of Viagra to face the task ahead. However, it was never to be as the man fainted in the act forcing the panic-stricken women to scamper out of the room screaming. At first, the two women thought the man having his moment, only to realise that something was amiss when he started foaming in the mouth, sweating profusely and breathing heavily. The man who, who intends to contest a parliamentary seat in the capital, was later taken to Hospital.


One of the leading contenders for the Nairobi governor seat was angered by a quack journalist he was entertaining for getting too cozy with his wife. The drunk quack, who had wanted to take a photo with the man's wife, got too close to the chagrin of the aspirant. And he could take no more, the furious man pounced on the quack scribe with blows and kicks leaving him badly bruised.


A politician has allegedly been arm twisting a lottery organisation to release winnings to a charity in his constituency. The charity, which has received most of the winnings, was expecting the Sh10 million balance in September, but that been held at the behest of a senior regulatory authority official. Despite the lottery's lawyer sending a letter to the service provider on how to disburse the money, the funds have yet to be released. The politician has tried to take the case back to police in vain. The Betting Control and Licensing Board is quiet on the issue.
