Her letter

To her former colleagues at K24, Mwanaisha hoped they had learnt their lessons the hard way because well, she lost her job twice in a span of 5 years and she had been whipped enough by life.

To those who have lost jobs POLENI but take the lessons with you so that next time it happens you should be more than ready. My friends dont be too attached to employment or companies and institutions that never asked your input when they were setting up or laying the foundation in the first place.

Mompreneur and journalist, Mwanaisha Chidzuga


You were just one to making that dream a reality and to sustain it and make profits or whatever. And when the time came to replace you they never even thought twice or remembered your input but just saving what’s theirs.

Mwanaisha Chidzuga and Gidi Gidi give Dennis Itumbi a dressing-down over shocking IEBC voter registration anomaly

IEBC announced that voters could verify their registration details by sending their ID number to 70000. Kenyans tried sending random numbers like 0, 3 etc and they were shocked to find that those numbers had been registered.

There was uproar on social media on Thursday June 29th after netizens discovered shocking anomalies in IEBC voter registration. Kenyans shared screenshots of the results they got after sending random single or two digit numbers to 70000.

IEBC rectified the anomaly as claims of rigging started amounting on social media. Jubilee blogger Dennis Itumbi sent random number to 70000 later after IEBC had rectified the error, his intention was to discredit the anomaly ever existed.

“Checking basic Facts and calling out the liars. Just sent 0 to the IEBC Verification portal. ..the response attached,” Dennis Itumbi posted on IG.

His post drew criticisms from IG users who blasted him for blind loyalty and defending what had been proved to be true. K24 anchor Mwanaisha Chidzuga and Radio Jambo presenter Gidi Gidi also gave Itumbi a dressing-down.

“No Itumbi they just brought it down I myself thought it was a hoax then sent the sms with 0 then 66 then 11 and got the sms with voters names polling station etc I can forward them to u..So kindly we are not just lying or spreading rumours as u claim bt geniune concerns.IEBC and the government should now address the issues raised by kenyans to avoid doubt or politicians using this as ammunition to discredit the whole process..Good PR also includes accepting there was a challenge but plans or processes are underway to sort it out.Dont take. Dont take the trust and faith that Kenyans have for granted one day itaisha so pls can IEBC clean the register as promised retain their credibility and trust of Kenyans that they can deliver fair elections Its nt abt Jubilee or Nasa or independent issues this is abt KENYA and whoever wins the election let it be seen by all Kenyans that he won fairly…” Mwanaisha Chidzuga wrote.

“It doesn’t help to lie Itumbi let IEBC accept the mistakes n correct it. We all love this country and it doesn’t argue well when u or jubilee as one of the players in the elections is always seen as the only side supporting IEBC even when they do something wrong,” wrote Gidi Gidi.

Through her social media pages the lady wrote a lengthy message as she called out the Uchumi supermarket located at Capital Centre for being careless.

According to her, instead of the cake being sweet – it turned out being bitter and has now caused a severe soar throat on her daughter who is also suffering from stomach upsets.

She wrote saying;

“Attention ladies and gentlemen I got this cake for my daughter’s birthday yesterday paid all the costs at Uchumi supermarket Capital Centre…took the cake to school for my daughter and she was happy coz of the decorations and the red velvet cake is what she had asked for…I am saying this with a lot of sadness because Uchumi Super Market bakery in their wisdom or lack of it decided to mess up with the taste. The cake instead of being sweet it was very bitter actually it tasted like quinine .I wonder what they were trying to do with the cake. For God’s sake don’t u guys taste the cake and the icing sugar before presenting it? What if the mixture turned out to be something poisonous kwani mnataka kuniulia watoto? Kama hamtaki kuuza au kupeana service nzuri si mfunge basi badala ya kutufanyia”

She concluded by saying;

“Now I hv to sort my daughters feelings and also treat a sore throat and stomach upsets she got from eating the cake.#ShameOn Uchumi”
