Nairobi County Assembly resumes sitting on Tuesday amid fears of another round of showdown over the fate of Speaker Beatrice Elachi.

The Ward Representatives have been on a month-long recess.

Top of their agenda will be how to deal with Ms Elachi who was impeached on September 6 during a special sitting, but obtained court orders reinstating her temporarily to her position.

SONKO’S IMPEACHMENT

The other business will be the planned impeachment of Governor Mike Sonko over his reluctance to appoint a deputy governor and his refusal to shift his operations from his Mua home back to his office at City Hall.

Despite Ms Elachi getting a reprieve from the Labour Court two weeks ago giving her more days in her seat, all is not rosy as the MCAs insist that ‘she must go.’

Minority Whip Peter Imwatok has told Nairobi News that Ms Elachi’s case is closed and there is no way she can reclaim the Speaker’s seat.

He argued that even if she comes back, then she must be voted in again as the Speaker according to the Assembly rules and procedures.

“Hers is a done case. If Elachi has to come back to the office, she must be voted back again into the office. The office is not a toilet where you just walk in and out as you wish. This is an institution. The same procedure that brought you in is the same one that brings you in again,” said Mr Imwatok.

ACTING SPEAKER

The Makongeni MCA explained that the Assembly will not suffer any vacuum as, in the meantime, the deputy speaker John Kamangu will be holding forte in an acting capacity until the matter is resolved.

“So far we do not have a substantive Speaker but we have a deputy Speaker who can preside over the running of the House and so there is no vacuum,” he said.

There have been reports that some MCAs have softened their stance over Ms Elachi’s possible return to the Assembly. But the ODM MCA laughed off the claims, saying that the matter was decided by the entire Assembly and not respective political parties .

“It is the assembly which made a decision and not political parties. It is the same assembly that has to sit down to resolve everything if it has to. And this I have not seen,” he said.

Reached for comment, Ms Elachi said the matter is before Court and would not wish to comment on it.

“I am in Eldoret and I will not be around tomorrow (Tuesday). I am not fighting anything so it is a non-issue at the moment as it is in Court until Friday maybe. They will have to come and start with house business. They have to create the business. And there are those motions and businesses in the order paper that we left while we were closing the Assembly they will proceed with,” said Ms Elachi on Monday.

Nameless recounts how he leant about E-sir’s death

Veteran singer Nameless has recounted the last moments spent with the late legendary rapper Issa Mmari popularly known as E-sir.

E-sir died back in 2003 on his way back to Nairobi from a concert at Afraha Stadium, Nakuru town, to help promote his debut album.

Nameless opened up on how he woke up in the hospital and no one could tell him where E-sir was.

“I did not know from the time I was taken to the hospital when it all happened. I was told he was in a different hospital. I had no phone or any other way of reaching E-sir my brother came from Nairobi. I asked everyone and no one told me. My brother is the one who told me, ‘e-sir didn’t make it’. It did not sink in. Like you know, you were with someone and then you are told they are no more, it cannot sink in.” he said

He added that E-sir’s death only sank in after he heard it being announced on the radio.

“I changed and entered a car that is when Boomba Train was played, and all I remember is the presenters then announced it. At this point, I broke down and that is when it sank in. I cried and as I was listening to his song playing, I could feel like he was talking to me.” He added

Should you wear panty liners every day?

Panty liners help contain leakages that could stain your clothes (Photo: Shutterstock)

The question of whether or not it’s okay to wear panty liners every day is still debatable. Some people can wear them for days on end without any major concern while others aren’t quite comfortable with the idea.

ALSO READ: Six ways to whiten your teeth

Whatever the case may be, let’s tackle why wearing them every day may not be such a bad thing and also on the other hand why it may not favour everyone. 

Benefits:

1. Daily freshness

The vagina cleans itself every day. While cleaning, some discharge comes out and this is normal. Liners come in handy because they contain the discharge, so you can be comfortable all day. Panties might not secure the discharge as well as panty liners. So the liners provide that extra comfort daily.

2 They’re perfect before and after your period 

When you know your period is due in a few days, there’s that anxiety at the back of your mind. Every woman has that fear of ending up with a huge blood stain on their clothes in public. This is where panty liners come to your rescue. They’re a good back up plan in case your period comes unexpectedly. Panty liners are also the perfect alternative to pads on the last days of your period when the flow is lighter. It’s that point where a pad would be a little too bulky and a tampon wouldn’t work either.

3. They help with postpartum discharge

Panty liners also come in handy after you’ve had a baby. There is usually some discharge during this period and liners help keep it contained. There are thick panty liners for extra absorption and thin ones too. Pick what works for you.

4. They help contain urine leakage 

There are those times when there is no bathroom in sight. And you might be so pressed that you have a slight leakage before you find one. If you have a panty liner at least, you’re safe. Otherwise some of the pee will slip through easily. There are also those times when you have to pee but there is no tissue or wet wipes around. Panty liners can provide that shield and prevent leakages as well. 

Disadvantages

Panty liners are great but should you wear them every single day? Lots of studies have shown the risks of wearing them on a daily basis and some have even experienced the downsides of doing so. Below are some of the arguments against wearing liners daily.

Wearing them every day, however, could be quite expensive (Photo: Shutterstock)

i. They can cause infections

Loading...

Panty liners usually trap a lot of moisture. This will accelerate the growth of bacteria especially if you’re using them every day. You’re putting yourself at risk when you don’t let your lady parts breathe. It’s not advisable to wear them all day, every day.

ii. The scented ones are risky

It’s even worse if you use scented panty liners. You’re more likely to develop yeast infections and many other bacterial and fungal infections. The scented liners also get smelly when worn for too long without changing.

iii. They can irritate the skin

That constant friction from daily wear can irritate your skin. This causes itching, redness and rashes in some cases. That means you’ll spend a couple of days dealing with the pain and discomfort caused by the liners which you don’t necessarily have to be using every day.

iv. Every day wear is costly

This is also something to think about if you want to wear them every single day. Those who are against using them like this put this factor into consideration as well. Using them constantly can put a dent in your pocket because they don’t come cheap.

Still, some women have worn them every day without any trouble. They come in handy for those who experience a lot of discharge and this makes them more comfortable.

For others, wearing them daily is not a good idea. It can cause a lot of problems especially if you’re prone to yeast infections.

If you must wear them every day, opt for the ultra-thin, 100% cotton variety. They are more breathable compared to other options.

Also, avoid the scented ones to reduce the risk of infections.

Juacali and Sanaipei Tande

Hip hop legend Juacali from Calif Records joined forces with former member of group SEMA and actress Sanaipei Tande to give us good music and romantic ones in that case. The two are behind the songs ‘Kwaheri’ and ‘Geti kali’

Amani and Nameless

The two are legends in Kenyan music and across East Africa. Nameless and Amani did a song together that is called ‘Ninanoki’ in the early 2000’s. The ‘Ninanoki’ song is a timeless song that is still a club banger today.

Habida and Nameless

Yet again Nameless is mentioned and this time with the beautiful female artist Habida. They collaborated together to produce the song called ‘Sunshine’  and in this collaboration is where Habida had her breakthrough in the music industry. The chemistry between the two in the music video can make a single person want to fall in love.

Kristoff and Khaligraph

The two hip hop geniuses were the men behind the song ‘We be happening’ and they did a remix to the song that featured various big names in the Kenyan music industry. They also did the remix of ‘Biashara’ single which was originally done by female rapper Stella Mwangi ‘STL’

The two brought nice music together considering that Timmy T Dat is from Nairobi and Sudi Boy is from Mombasa as they do still have the culture from the cities they represent respectively. One of the songs they did together is ‘Zile mbili’

Avril and Marya

Although they have done one song together, they gave us one hit that will always be remembered. The title of the song is ‘chokoza’ and the song is basically about women giving men restless time in the club leaving men ‘Wakikula kwa macho’. Hope to see the two beauties doing another song together in the near future.

Nonini and P. Unit

The legend Nonini discovered the celebrated music group P. Unit and they did ‘si lazima’ song then they later did ‘Hapa Kule’ and ‘Kushoto Kulia’. The songs are still hits till today. If they could collaborate again together it would be nice for their fans.
