As you start your first day of 2021, you need to power your mind with some relevant and useful information.

Here we go.

I will Form the Next Government, DP Ruto Says

Deputy President William Ruto has expressed confidence in midwifing the next government, saying that his “Hustlers’ Movement” is unstoppable.

Speaking during a thanksgiving ceremony for new Msambweni MP Feisal Bader, DP Ruto said his victory had signalled that Kenyans are tired of tribal politics and threats from major political parties.

Accusing that President Uhuru Kenyatta betrayed him, the DP said he was now focusing on bringing all ‘Hustlers’ together to form the next government.

Uhuru’s New Year Message

President Uhuru Kenyatta described 2021 as the year for rebuilding and renewal of mindset.

In his New Year’s message, the Head of State said Kenyans “should reset their minds to see the limitless possibilities” ahead.

Acknowledging that 2020 was tough, the President asked the nation to take the lessons as the foundation of a better year.

A New Year: Renewed Hope

Unlike in the past, when Kenyans would usher in the New Year in places of worship and entertainment joints, 2021 began as fireworks exploded in empty streets.

The Covid-19 pandemic has sent all back to square one, making them understand how precious life is. The disruptions were excruciating, but the lessons worth it.

As you start the new year refresh your mind. Go for that dream, be a source of positive vibes, hug your loved ones, and above all, be humble.

Leaders Praise Kenyans For Standing Strong Amid Pandemic

Deputy President William Ruto lauded Kenyans for shouldering one another’s burden since the Covid-19 pandemic broke out in March.

ODM leader Raila Odinga described Kenyans as a resilient people, adding that the New Year would breathe new hope into the broken-hearted.

Similar messages of hope were shared by Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka, ANC boss Musalia Mudavadi and Council of Governors (CoG) chair Wycliffe Oparanya.

Mike Sonko, Senator Mwaura Join Tangatanga

Ousted Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura said they have “seen the light”, in their messages, when they decamped to Tangatanga’s ‘Hustlers; Nation’.

Mwaura said he had joined the Deputy President William Ruto-allied group after consulting with the people.

In his remarks, Sonko rebuked President Uhuru Kenyatta for allegedly betraying him and other people who used their own resources to bolster his presidential quest in 2013 and 2017.

Pro-BBI Group Accuses IEBC of Working With Tangatanga

Promoters of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) have accused the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) of “conspiring with the enemy to frustrate the process”.

Led by Senate Minority Leader James Orengo and National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya, the group said the commission was speaking the opponents’ language after IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati said that the law allows a multi-choice referendum.

Orengo quoted Article 257 of the Constitution to defend his claim that the law does not provide for a multiple-question plebiscite.

300 Schools Closed Due to Covid-19 Pandemic

The Kenya Private Schools Association has revealed that 339 academies have been closed down after they failed to withstand the effects of Covid-19 pandemic.

As a result, over 56,000 learners have been forced to seek admission to other institutions ahead of 4th January reopening of schools.
