Moaninho, Must Know or Malice and Mushrooms....



In Breaking News, The Special One has left Stamford Bridge! For non soccer fans, Jose Mourinho has left (been sacked) as Chelsea's manager after a lack lustre start to the season that has led to poor attendance of games. Is this the beginning of the end for the Billion dollar team? Grant? Who the hell is he? What say you Chelski fans out there, Archer, Farmgal, anyone?

Anyway moving onto more serious matters. One day a few months back when Acolyte was at his hey day and the talk of the blogosphere (Kenyan at least) he received an interesting e-mail from someone who wanted him to post something on his blog.

This individual had an issue of national importance regarding a former high ranking civil servant who was presently sitting on one of the many useless inquiries in Kenya. He had sent his story to several media outlets with no action whatsoever. It seems that the daughter of this former civil servant after being flown out to the UK by her father had turned to a life of prostitution and even moved down to Australia where she continued the trade under the guise of working as a masseuse. The dude even went on to catalogue the number of men he says she told him she had slept with. The sheer zeal with which he was hounding me to post the story made me think twice especially when he copy pasted me what he had sent the Kenyan police and ODM (Joe's favourite political party).

I did do my own research and it seemed that the girl in question was quite a looker, what made her opt for the second oldest trade in the world (toolmaking is the oldest), I don't know. According to my snitch, he thought that the civil servant had no business sitting on a commission because his daughters actions could be used to compromise him. It is when he revealed that he once lent her money and he got it back but after a bit of a struggle since she was "quite a bit of work" as he put it and to add icing on the cake they were f*ck buddies. That is what put it in between must know and malice territory.

You see in Kenya we don't live like we do in the West, we know our leaders are tainted but we take them as we are. I'm sure we are all aware of a former Vice President's wife's dalliances that resulted in her giving birth to a mixed race child and him fainting in the hospital, the industrial/media mogul who is known to bed young girls and men occasionally, the female MP who is prim and proper in public but has the morals of an alley cat. Most of our leaders are as clean as a whore's panties at the end of the month so that extra piece of information wouldn't have been of any use as compared to financial statements that show how much money the former civil servant stole from the government. Or what say you purveyors of truth out there, was this must know or malicious information? Anyway I have a 3 day weekend so comment away!

No comment on the soccer front.

I would file the request for the post under Malice. The two having had a sexual history means that the dude can never be objective in his observation of the chick. You know how sex complicates maneno.

I like the post title. Great post

Prousette said...

That dude had issues! did he want to use you to blackmail the girl's father or the girl himself?

It is only of late that Kenyans have acquired an appetite for sleazy news but deep down we do not really care what those leaders do.

Majonzi said...

I will agree with previous posters. Gossip has never really interested me . Look how American news has become, u know? Do we care who slept with who? I guess this has some sort of double standard-- we look aside when people cheat on their spouses... . While we shouldn't.

However, this man I am sure does not approve of his dota's shenadigans, he wouldn't be. So embarrasing him in public like that doesn't make him serve Kenyans better. On the other hand, if an MP instead of serving his constituents is malingering all over the place, then we have a STORY.

But like you said, we want to know how their financial statements look.

malice...

such comments are never need to know (in kenya), so that what may happen.

Kelitu said...

The dude was just hating on the chic. How does one's grown up child behavior affect your role as a Public Service Official??

He's been sipping on that haterade.

Acolyte said...

@ GNM
Thanks for the out look and compliment. Once he said he had been banging her I put it under malice too.
@ prou
I think that was his aim. Kenyans only like the sleaze for gossip fodder, nothing else!
@ majonzi
I think in Africa we are more forgiving when it comes to our leader's morals because we know that we are far from perfect ourselves or just dont care but I do think there are other more important things about our leaders we should know other than what their kids are doing abroad.
@ modo
A simple but conscise opinion I see.
@ kelitu
I think sipping is too kind a verb....

kiwaaaru....had her and no longer does..

why is their private lives any of our business unless it interferes with their duties or compromises them and causes them to abouse their power or position to get themselves or members of their family out of trouble...

Acolyte said...

@ muthii fulani
Good to see that most of us here are on the same track, because for real I don't see how what the daughter does directly influences her father's position.

Lola Gets said...

3 day weekend hmph but its almost over :)
Well said by all who preceeded.
toolmaking is the oldest trade? Lola i see myself using that too.

egm said...

I have not been here in ages! Naona kweli kuna maendeleo.

As for the post, even me nitaiita malice. Past interaction between the two disqualifies him from giving an objective outlook to the issue.

Dshy said...

Ordinarily I would not concern myself with Kenyan politics but this one bears mention because it involves the age old Madonna/whore complex that men seem to struggle with. If he thought she was indeed a character of questionable morals, why did he still go ahead and sleep with her? Clearly her father’s position as a civil servant did not matter then, so why should they do so after they have fallen out? Sour grapes I say. Her father’s ability to function as a competent public servant bears no relation to the way his daughter lives her life.

The new dig, erm..its..nice...

I think it just needs dark clouds, cries of the undead and..

Lol..I keed, I keed.

You my friend, owe me something. Do like that tafadhali, my inbox awaits.

*starts to dribble in anticipation*

gishungwa said...

now that i recall you owe me. get to work.

Acolyte said...

@ lola and Gish
You have to pay royalties, send the check too......
@ egm
I hear you are having a ball in the jamuhuri! Yes malice it is!
@ dshy
Very well said, watch your inbox in the next coming days!
