Artur, Artur Nonsense

Like the sponging relative you just cannot shake, the Arturs are back. Today's Standard brings news of the impending wedding of Miss Winnie Wangui Mwai (the daughter of "Narc activist" and President Kibaki's alleged -and repeatedly disavowed- wife No. 2, Mary Wambui) and Mr Artur Margaryan.

It is amazing how, despite being categorises by Interpol as an international fugitive on the run, Margaryan can still make time to have a relationship -"she comes to see me very often, we are together a lot of the time"- give press interviews and author a book (imaginatively titled "The Artur's X-Files" -I wonder what genius came up with that). This doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the police, does it? Margaryan goes on to declare: "In a week’s time, she (Wangui) will join me." Why not simply put a tail on her? Or is that beyond the capabilities of Interpol?

Anyway, this latest Artur foray into the headlines is sure to revive public interest in the fate of the Kiruki Commission findings. The report is gathering dust at State House despite a promise of "speedy action" from Margaryan's future father-in-law. Fat chance of that now!

Margaryan ("I used to call him James and I would like to be called Mrs James or Mrs Margaryan after the marriage is formalised," says his fiancée -MRS. JAMES! LOL!) has also provided further details about his "deportation". He and his brother, Artur Sargasyan, were said to have been deported from the country in June last year, following a security rumpus at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport during which Margaryan reportedly drew a gun. However, his version of events reads rather differently. "They (read authorities) put me on a top class airline to where I chose to go. That's not being removed".

Finally, further proof that love is blind (and stupid) was provided by the bride-to-be. Speaking of the man who flouted Kenyan laws in broad daylight, threatened to unleash his dogs on the Commissioner of Police, and despite claiming to spend hundreds of thousands of shillings daily, ducked paying rent for his Runda house, Wangui says: "I never saw him as arrogant and rough as claimed. He was a good-hearted and honest person . . . . I know they were not criminals." That gives the phrase "madly in love" a whole different meaning.

When it comes to love, women see what they want to see. This woman could do much better than this thug but what she sees is a Prince instead.

If the woman is in love ,she is "Pilipili usioila ya kuwachia nini?" Let her be and who says she cano do better, maybe better is what she has right now.If she is happy with him then who are we to judge!

Raila said those mamluki (thanks S Mdoe for the lugha sanifu) are in te country on wednesday during debate in parliament. By 7.00 evening news, they had called from Fuckingstan! I mean, how DAFT does this gavaa think we are? If they called - I don't know - a week later because there's no Nation/Standard newspapers on the streets of Karachi, I would've been (don't bet on this) non-the wiser.. I will not vote, not cause The Baks hasn't been deserving, but as a protest. I need a leader who can stand scrutiny (oxymoron).stagger

Love can be blind however, I sometimes wonder whether Miss Winnie is seeking her fathers attention. Having been overtly disassociated from the Kibaki family by her alleged own father, maybe she could be crying for attention from her father. Seeking recognition of her and her mum as legitimate members of Emilio Kibaki's Family.People do pursue irrational/weird actions when they feel they are being short changed in life.
