Rich Mavoko has come out to defend himself when it comes to the beef between him and his former boss, Diamond Platnumz.

For him, that is over and done with but he can not speak on behalf of Diamond.

There’s no beef really. No feud at all. You see I can’t get into somebody’s heart or mind to know his thoughts. But for me am not mad at him because I believe we were in business and it ended. If we start hating on each other, it appears childish.

He is glad the drama is over and now he wants to focus on music as his mode of business.

I don’t want to talk more on this but I thank God for it over. Our business was I have a talent, he invests in it. We could not work together so we decided to terminate it so no cause for alarm

Out of emotions, Rich Mavoko started airing out all the drama he went through while at WCB. It was worrying that he was not making music even his own mother was worried.

There were issues that didn’t go as I wished. Even my mum was getting worried. I could stay for long without releasing new songs. I used to record good music but when I ask the label when it will be out they started playing ping pong games.

Rich Mavoko was open enough to say that he quit WCB because he wasn’t seeing a future in terms of his career.

At the end of the day I had to terminate my contract but it was a bit difficult because they couldn’t understand me.

He continued,

Mum would panic why I was not producing new hits and she would call the management. She used to warn me if my music is not being released then I would be a laughing stock in the industry. When I was there (WCB) I couldn’t foresee anything about my career.

Why Diamond Platnumz likes Harmonize more according to Rich Mavoko

He has released two songs after leaving WCB. Today he has dropped a track alongside Mr Blue that looks promising in terms of views.

Rebels kill 22 in eastern DRCongo: local officials [ARTICLE]

Members of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), an Islamist-rooted militia with its origins in Uganda, killed the civilians using machetes, Beni region administrator Donat Kibwana told AFP.

“Teams have been mobilised to recover the bodies and bring them back for dignified funerals,” he said.

The victims were farmers and included 13 women, said Noella Katsongerwaki, Beni’s civil society president.

Dozens of armed groups have troubled the DR Congo’s restive east for decades despite a UN peacekeeping presence, but recent attacks have been blamed on the ADF.

More than 100 people have died in assaults blamed on the group since November 5.

The latest incident came a day after six civilians were killed in an attack in the eastern city of Beni.

DR Congo forces launched operations against the militia in the eastern region at the end of October.

The ADF has retaliated by carrying out massacres, in an apparent bid to discourage civilians from helping the military.

Mounting anger over militia violence has sparked demonstrations in the eastern city of Beni, where local people accuse the UN peacekeeping force MONUSCO of failing to protect them.

MONUSCO has said it will carry out joint operations with the Congolese army to crackdown on the ADF.

MONUSCO, one of the biggest UN peacekeeping operations in the world, today comprises more than 16,500 military personnel and observers, 1,300 police and at least 4,000 civilians.

But it has struggled to make progress in a vast country beset by armed groups as well as an Ebola epidemic, poverty and poor governance.

Stop unwarranted factional fights, DP Ruto tells Jubilee leaders

Published

Loading...

Deputy President William Ruto has asked Jubilee Party leaders to stop unwarranted factional fights. 

He said members of the party should conform to the party’s direction under the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The Deputy President noted that there were individuals who wanted to create division in the party through propaganda.

Dr Ruto asked members to be wary of such people who did not want to see Jubilee united.

He said the motive of those who wanted to break Jubilee was to ensure it failed to deliver on its agenda to the people.

Dr Ruto further said Kenya was a democratic country that allowed anyone to belong to a political party of his or her choice.

“The rest of us will continue to forge the unity of the nation, progress and transformation of Kenya as we move forward as a party,” he said.

He explained that the party would not be divided by leaders who believe in tribal political parties.

“Jubilee under the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta would not allow the country to go back to the era of politics of hate, tribalism and division,” he said.

He noted that those engaging in the archaic politics were wasting their time.

The Deputy President urged Kenyans to shun tribal politics characterised by personality cults.

He explained that the country’s politics should be built around parties with national outlook and guided by progressive programmes.

“That is how we are going to speak about pro-people issues and avoid ethnicity and personality cults.”

Dr Ruto spoke on Sunday in Kericho and Kisii Counties during a prayer service and an empowerment drive of the Kisii Performing Artists Association, respectively.

He was accompanied by Kericho Governor Paul Chepkwony, Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi, MPs Shadrack Mose (Kitutu Masaba), Vincent Kemosi (West Mugirango), Nelson Koech (Belgut), Alpha Miruka (Bomachoge Chache) and Sylvanus Maritim (Ainamoi).

The leaders called for speedy implementation of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) without dividing Kenyans.

They said the report should be implemented quickly, a development they claimed would ensure the Government focuses on President Kenyatta’ legacy.

“We need to finish the implementation of BBI by March so that we can ensure Big Four is successfully achieved,” said Mr Mose.

Mr Kemosi said they would support the implementation of the BBI report, whichever route the BBI taskforce recommends.

“We have read the BBI report; we will support its implementation whether through county assemblies, National Parliament or a referendum,” he noted.

On his part, Mr Miruka asked politicians not to use the BBI report to divide the country.

“Let us move our nation forward and use the report in transforming the country,” he argued.

At the same time, Dr Ruto said the government was focussed at supporting small and medium-sized enterprises.

He said the country needed to look for a structured way of supporting them.

“They are the engines of our economic growth for they generate jobs to our youths. We must, therefore, come up with policies that would reinvigorate them,” he said.
