Here’s an “expensive” Nairobi PROSTITUTE charging Ksh 90,000 a night (PHOTOs)

 A 26 year old Nairobi prostitute named, Kaitlyn Amaru, has decided to take her business to another level. Apparently, the high class lady, who mostly targets politicians and wealthy businessmen, has been advertising her goodies online to attract more customers.

She operates from a secret apartment in one of the city’s suburbs and any man who wants to taste her flesh must be well  loaded. To enjoy her services for a full night, one has to part with Ksh 90,000. You must pay 40 percent of the amount before getting down to action.

She also dishes out her flesh to foreign men just like Vera Sidika and any foreigner who wants to taste her flesh must adhere to her requirements.  You must fly her in Business Class and pay her 50 % of the agreed cash before she flies out. International bookings have to be made one month before because she is very busy.

Month in Tech: Samsung's see-through truck

(Credit: Samsung)

The Korean electronics behemoth unveiled a prototype tractor trailer that allows vehicles behind large lorries to essentially see through the vehicle. Samsung calls it the Safety Truck, and it is fitted with a wireless camera on the front and four large exterior monitors on the truck’s rear. The company says motorists behind the rig see exactly what is happening in front of it, enhancing drivers’ awareness of overtaking safety, whether during day or night. The Safety Truck is just a prototype for now, but Samsung’s in talks with non-government agencies and governments to do more testing.

As if the British marque’s products didn’t already offer some of the cushiest rides on the road, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is now tapping its Advanced Research Center in the UK to develop a new pothole detection system, aptly named Pothole Alert. The technology will use road-surface sensors, paired with forward-facing stereo digital cameras on the Range Rover Evoque, to scope out potholes and broken manholes, and even detect how deep they are. JLR intends to pair Pothole Alert with its current MagneRide system, which can adjust the suspension in milliseconds to match road conditions, and ultimately wants the technology to detect and drive around potholes for its driver. JLR also plans to send real-time pothole data into the cloud, so that – in a presumably linked future for passenger-car communications – other drivers may access it and respond to road conditions accordingly.

The sharing economy is no longer just for wide-eyed optimists. Mini announced that it would offer a DriveNow package for its US cars staring in 2016, allowing owners a simple way to rent out their vehicles by the hour. (Think of it as sharing, with a capitalistic twist.) Owners can also add friends and family to a list of people who can use the car for free. DriveNow has formerly been used for fleet rentals, but this is the first time individual Mini owners can use it for their own purposes. Similarly, Ford Motor divulged details on its own peer-to-peer car-sharing programme, which just launched in London and six US cities. Ford says young Americans rank their cars just under books as something they’d be most likely to share.

The German luxury automaker joined the Google Lunar XPrize mission – a challenge to land an unmanned rover on the Moon’s surface, drive at least 500 metres (1,640ft), and send high-definition video and images back to Earth. Dubbed the Lunar Quattro, the space vehicle is made mostly of aluminium, and wears a solar panel hooked to a lithium-ion battery back that feeds four electric hub motors. Audi is helping to finance the rover being built by a Berlin-based team, called Part-Time Scientists. Grab your telescope and look for the vehicle cruising round the former landing site of the Apollo 17 mission sometime in 2017.

A vaguely dystopic development this month. The winner of the US government’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) Robotics Challenge managed to drive itself around in a car this month, then exited and rolled around on its own knees to finish other tasks. The winning ‘bot completed a series of natural disaster obstacles such as walking over rubble, turning off valves and flipping a circuit breaker. Having defeated its robot competitors in the timed race, the wheeled overlord earned $2m in prize money for its feeble underlings.

At the June Paris Air Show, UK-based Malloy Aeronautics announced it was teaming up with Survice Engineering in the US to build a hoverbike for the US Department of Defense. As our colleagues at BBC News reported, the bike will be a Tactical Reconnaissance Vehicle (TRV), with both manned and unmanned “flights” possible, but for the moment the prototype sooner resembles a drone with a motorcycle seat bolted in the middle than a fearsome war machine. The partners have not divulged performance figures or even how movement will be achieved, though it’s fair to assume tree-dwelling Ewoks will not be among its enemies in the field.

CRISTIANO RONALDO huenda akaukwaa unahodha wa Real Madrid iwapo Sergio Ramos atafanikiwa kujiunga na Manchester United.
Ramos bado yuko 'vitani' na mabosi wa Real Madrid akiwataka wamruhusu atimkie zake Old Trafford.
Kocha mpya wa Real Madrid Rafa Benitez anatarajiwa atamchagua Ronaldo kuwa nahodha wake kutokana ukweli kuwa baada ya Ramos ni yeye tu na Marcelo ndio wachezaji waliodumu Madrid kwa muda mrefu.
Marcelo beki wa Brazil alijiunga na Real Madrid mwaka 2007 wakati Ronaldo aliingia mwaka 2009 akitokea Manchester United.
Hata hivyo Marcelo hana uhakika wa kuwa na namba ya kudumu, hali inayotoa mwanya kwa Ronaldo kutwaa unahodha kirahisi.

Atiwa Mbaroni Akituhumiwa Kumuua Baba Yake kwa Shoka

MKAZI wa kijiji cha Igongwa wilayani Maswa mkoani Simiyu, Majingwa Ndushi (32) amekamatwa na jeshi la Polisi baada ya kutoroka akikwepa kufikishwa mahakamani kwa tuhuma ya kumuua baba yake mzazi, Ndushi Majingwa (65) kwa kumkata na shoka kichwani.
Mbele ya mahakama hiyo, ilidaiwa na Mwendesha Mashtaka wa jeshi hilo, Mkaguzi wa polisi Nassibu Swedy, kuwa mshtakiwa huyo alitenda kosa hilo, Mei 30 mwaka huu, saa tatu asubuhi kijijini hapo.
Alidai kuwa, kabla ya kufanya mauaji hayo mshtakiwa huyo alifika nyumbani kwa baba yake akiwa na shoka mkononi na kumkuta akiwa amekaa kwenye kiti na kisha kuanza kulumbana kwa maneno na hivyo kushindwa kuelewana, ndipo alipomshambulia kwa kumkata kwa shoka kichwani na kufa papo hapo.
Swedy alidai mahakamani hapo mbele ya Hakimu Tumain Marwa, kuwa chanzo cha mauaji hayo ni mgogoro wa muda mrefu wa kifamilia kati ya marehemu na mwanae huyo.
Alisema mara baada ya kufanya tukio hilo alitoroka lakini baada ya muda mfupi, alikamatwa na kisha kufikishwa katika kituo cha polisi cha wilaya ya Maswa.
Hata hivyo, mshitakiwa hakutakiwa kujibu lolote kwa sababu mahakama hiyo, haina uwezo wa kusikiliza kesi za mauaji na hivyo kesi hiyo itatajwa tena Julai 15, mwaka huu, na mshitakiwa amepelekwa rumande.


Jeshi la polisi wilayani kahama mkoani Shinyanga limekamata mashine moja ya BVR ikitumika kuandikisha wapiga kura saa tatu usiku nyumbani kwa mwenyekiti wa mtaa wa Nyakato wilayani humo Mayunga Alphonce kupitia CHEDEMA, huku wakiwalipa shilingi 5,000 kila mmoja. 

Akizungumza leo na waandishi wa Habari mkuu wa wilaya ya kahama Benson Mpesya amesema tukio hilo limetokea jana majira ya saa 3 usiku katika mtaa wa nyakato ambapo mashine hiyo ilikutwa ikiwa inafanya kazi ya kuandikisha wapiga kura.

Mpesya amesema kuwa vyombo vya usalama wilayani humo vilipata taarifa kutoka kwa raia wema ambazo zimewezesha kukamatwa kwa mashine hiyo pamoja na vitambulisho vitano ambavyo tayari vilikuwa vimeshakamilika kuandikishwa.

Ameongeza katika harakati za kukamata mashine hiyo pia wameweza kumkamata mhamiaji haramu mmoja raia wa Burundi ambaye tayari alikuwa ameshaandikishwa na mashine hiyo akiwa ndani ya nyumba ya mwenyekiti huyo wa mtaa.

Mpesya amesema jeshi la Polisi wilayani humo linamshikilia kaimu afisa mtendaji wa kata ya Nyasubi Lugina Misango ambaye ndiye mwenye dhamana ya kusimamia mashine hizo kwa kosa la kuruhusu mashine hiyo kutumika nyumbani kwa myekiti wa mtaa.

Katika hatua nyingine Mpesya amewataka waandishi wa habari wanaotumiwa kukanusha taarifa hiyo, kutambua kuwa ofisi yake ni mamlaka kamili ya serikali na kwamba wasubiri hatua za kisheria kwani ushahidi wa kukamatwa kwa mashine hiyo upo kituo cha polisi.
Tangu kuanza kwa zoezi la uandikishaji wapiga kura katika daftari la kudumu la wapiga kura wilayani humo hilo ndio tukio la kwanza la aina yake ambalo limevuta hisia, na Mpesya amesema jeshi la polisi bado linaendelea na uchunguzi.

10 Amazing Beauty Tricks With Coconut Oil

coconut oil tricks for skin and hairLet's work backwards. When you think about the health benefits of coconut oil, we're going to guess that the last thing that comes to mind is rubbing the edible plant grease all over your face. Or your arms. Or your hair. But a growing body of research, countless experts, and an army of natural-beauty devotees swear by the stuff for just about everything. Are they onto something?
Yes, according to our experts. Coconut oil is used in many natural beauty products, and for good reason: It's naturally antibacterial and antifungal, it's an excellent moisturizer, it can penetrate hair better than other oils, and, well, it smells like cookies.
"Yum," says Tieraona Low Dog, MD, director of the fellowship program at the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine. "Is there anything more luscious than coconut oil?"
We can't think of anything. But we can think of 10 amazing uses for it in your very own home that don't require spending a fortune on store-bought products. In fact, all you need is one thing: Raw (and preferably organic) virgin coconut oil.
Here, count on two hands our completely natural DIY beauty tricks with coconut oil.
1. To soothe dry hands
This won't work for dry digits when you're on the go, but at home, coconut oil can work wonders on your dishwashing-parched hands. "I keep a jar of organic extra virgin coconut oil by the kitchen sink and put a little on after washing my hands to keep them soft and moist," says Low Dog. And if you cook with coconut oil—you can sub it for butter in baking recipes because it’s solid at room temperature—scoop out a little extra for your hands, too. "Whenever I cook with coconut oil, I make sure to moisturize my hands with it too," says Katrine van Wyk, a holistic health and nutrition coach based in New York.

2. As a cheekbone highlighter
Nothing perks up a tired face like a little highlighter, but you don't need store-bought products to achieve the same effect. Simply sweep a small amount of coconut oil on top of makeup and leave it alone. It looks like your skin but glowier, which is why many natural makeup brands use it as a base ingredient in their formulas. If you're looking for a more portable option, try the cult favorite Living Luminizer by RMS Beauty, which has a coconut-oil base and light reflecting pigment.
3. To shave your legs

Conventional shaving cream is an expensive cocktail of chemicals that you don't need to get a nice clean shave on your legs or underarms. Coconut oil, on the other hand, is inexpensive, naturally antimicrobial, and smells divine. Plus, its skin-soothing properties will leave your legs looking hydrated (but never greasy).
4. As a deep-conditioner
There's a reason many conditioners contain coconut oil: It's better able to penetrate hair (and prevent protein loss) than mineral and sunflower oil, according to research. "I use it in my hair and on my skin for deep conditioning," says Tasneen Bhatia, MD, an integrative doctor and owner of the Atlanta Center for Holistic and Integrative Medicine. Apply a quarter-size dollop to your hair, comb it, and then pile it into a loose bun. You'll want to place a soft towel over your pillow or sleep in a shower cap. In the morning, shampoo as usual with a gentle cleanser.
5. To remove eye makeup
Yes, coconut oil even works on waterproof mascara! Put a little on a cotton ball and gently sweep it over your eyes, paying attention to your under-eyes as well. The oil does a great job breaking down waxy, inky eye makeup, and leaves the delicate area hydrated, too. Once you're done, wash your face as usual.

6. As a body moisturizer
A recent animal study found that when applied topically, virgin coconut oil can speed up wound healing, and a human study found it to be effective in increasing hydration and reducing water loss in seriously dry skin. Sounds like a recipe for a really good lotion to us! It's a health-expert favorite, too. Says Wyk: "It smells delicious, is very affordable, and leaves my skin feeling nourished and smooth."
7. To clean your face

Photo by Photohead
Because coconut oil is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, moisturizing and, according to research, great for atopic dermatitis, many women swear by its use as a nighttime moisturizer for their face, too. Try the double-cleansing method: Simply rub the oil in circular motions all over your face and neck, giving yourself a gentle massage as you go. When you're done, wash off the residue with your favorite cleanser. (If you're adult-acne prone, avoid this technique unless you know your skin tolerates coconut oil.)
8. To add shine
Smooth a tiny amount of coconut oil onto your ends to add a little shine, or on flyaways if you have dark hair. Remember that a dab will do you: Any more and your hair might appear greasy.
9. In a luscious body scrub
Here's a little DIY beauty secret: That store-bought body scrub you save for special occasions? It's a waste of money. That's because you can make one yourself with ingredients you already have in your kitchen. Low Dog agrees. "I love to do this. It's wonderfully moisturizing, great for the skin, inexpensive, and blissfully absent of chemicals you can't pronounce!" To make your own, Low Dog suggests melting ½ c of coconut oil at very low heat. Pour it over 1 c of brown sugar or salt and stir well. If you have some on hand, add in five drops of your favorite essential oil or some pure vanilla extract for a scrub so fragrant you'll want to eat it.
10. For a little rubdown
Many store-bought massage oils have either coconut or jojoba oil as their base. Cut out the middleman and go straight to the bottle. It's slippery, skin-friendly, and moisturizing, too.

Proof that Nairobi LADIES walk in broad-daylight without P@NT!3S, Crazy VIDEO.

Nairobi ladies have lost morals and some of the things they do in broad-daylight are just shameful. A city resident decided to capture this crazy video of a bootylicious lady in Nairobi walking comfortably without p@nt!3s.

And mind you, it was in broad-daylight.  Just click play and see how modern ladies have lost morals.
