The javelin champion noted that these were just mere rumours as no country had so far approached him with such an offer.

The sports man who arrived yesterday in the country after competing in the just concluded IAAF World Championships in Beijing China noted that money was not everything and he would not cherish the idea of ditching his citizenship for Qatar.

He also noted that the unending tales of Kenyans being tortured in the Middle Eastern countries is quite disheartening and many coming back as destitutes gives him no reason to even consider such an offer.

The 26 year old, popularly known as the YouTube athlete, after learning the javelin sport from the internet. He has remained a sensation to many as unlike the other sports men in Kenya, who are traditionally runners, he chose the field event which is unpopular in the country.

Thus making his win to be  of so much significance to the country and will go under the history as no other Kenyan  has won or participated in the event at his level.

According to the IAAF rules, even if he agreed to trade his citizenship for the Arabian nation he would not be eligible to compete for the next three years.

While You Are Busy On Whatsapp : Meet A 13 year old CEO Who Made 20 Million In SALES

He is only 13, but he has accomplished more in his short years than most have by 30. His bow ties have produced $200,000 in sales, and he has five employees on payroll which include his mother and grandmother. Not to mention, he has been celebrated by Oprah’s O Magazine, Steve Harvey and mentor/FUBU founder Daymond John.

moziah bridges post

His name is Moziah Bridges and he is the CEO of Mo’s Bows. The teenage fashion designer started his company in 2011 at the tender age of nine when he asked his grandmother to teach him how to sew. He took her scraps of fabric and began making unique bow ties. Not long after, Mo’s Bows began selling to local stores and online.

A year later, Moziah Bridges is riding high on his successful business venture with the help of his mother Tramica Morris. He has since sold $200,000 worth of his handmade bow ties and various other men’s fashion accessories and has seven employees, including his mother and grandmother.

On his website Bridges explains his passion for making bow ties saying, “I like to wear bow ties because they make me look good and feel good. Designing a colorful bow tie is just part of my vision to make the world a fun and happier place.”
And as his vision is becoming actualized, the Memphis native went a step further into philanthropy.
“I made this bow tie called the Go Mo! Scholarship Bow Tie and 100 percent of the proceeds go to help kids go to summer camp because I feel like it’s good to help the community and that’s what I’m doing,” Bridges said.

Bridges appeared on Shark Tank in 2014 to pitch Mo’s Bows to potential investors. He had to choose between accepting $50,000 for his innovative idea while sharing royalties with Kevin O’Leary, or have John as a mentor. The young businessman chose John’s influence over money, and so far the decision has proven to be a wise one.
With John, he attended Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York and impressed big names in fashion with his sophisticated demeanor and dapper style. What more could they expect from a kid carrying a briefcase? Bridges’s experience at Fashion Week garnered a phone call from Karen Katz CEO of Neiman Marcus. Mo’s Bows are now sold online at Neiman Marcus and Cole Hahn. His neckwear retails at around $50 and are available in 15 states, Toronto and the Bahamas.

He is very hands-on with the creation of Mo’s Bows. He chooses the design of each tie and his style is a myriad of polka-dots, bold stripes, funky paisleys, and sports themed ties. His sports ties opened a seat for Bridges at 2015 NBA Draft where he served as a fashion analyst for the draftees.
Moziah Bridges’ success is certainly engineered by his mother’s support. “You don’t have to wait until you’re older,” his mother Tramica Morris said. “If you have a dream and you have a passion, we say go for it.”

When is he older, his future with Mo’s Bows will be expansive. “I see Mo’s Bows adding neck ties, pocket squares and other accessories for men,” he wrote to FORBES. “I also want to get enough money to start a cool kids clothing company that has nice blazers and pants for kids who like to look good like me.

He testified in a message shared on his Facebook page, on a personal experience he had with one of the singers called Rabbit whom he believes will one day crossover to sing gospel song.

He captioned:

The first time I had this Song ‪#‎KAFIRI‬ I thought for a Moment Rabbit had started singing Gospel Music. It’s one piece that made me think of People differently. In the Bible 1st Samuel 16:7 …though Us men look at the Outward appearance, the Lord looks at the Heart. And for so Long this bro has always been in my Prayers. I happened to Meet King Kaka’s MUM two Weeks ago Just b4 the release of ‪#‎KUCHU_KUCHU‬ and One thing she testifies is Rabbit has grown in Church as a God fearing Child.”Ken ndio alikua anachora Zile Picha za Yesu amebeba Msalaba zakubandika Sunday School” I can well Remember her words. “Naniumuambia aimbe wimbo za Kanisa” But I told her God’s timing is always the Best and in God’s time I know he will Crossover. I have Testimonies from Different people, Fans & even Producer to Our New Release; that Rabbit could ask for time to Pray b4 the Recording Session. I know People view it Differently. Some May Come up to Judge but remember Romans 3:23 …all have fallen short of His glory.No Man is righteous. For King Kaka; all I know is God is smiling He heard your Voice in a Gospel song for Every Dad rejoices getting a Message from a Son.And Romans 8: 16 His Spirit bears with me that You’re a Child of GOD!!! My Prayer is after this Song Your Relationship with GOD will never be Same Again”



Should Rabbit listen to this call from Bahati?

Manny Pacquiao Visits And PRAYS For A Woman Who Has Been Sentenced To DEATH

Christian Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao and his wife Jinkee recently went to Wirogunan prison in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, to visit condemned overseas Filipino worker Mary Jane Veloso, who has been sentenced to death for smuggling heroin to Indonesia.


Christian Today reports, Veloso has claimed innocence over the act, saying she has been framed by alleged trafficker Maria Kristina Sergio, her live-in partner Julius Lacanilao, as well as an unidentified African man.

Philippines President Benigno Aquino III appealed to Indonesian President Joko Widodo to grant Veloso clemency, and so did Pacquiao, just two days before her scheduled execution on April 29 this year.

Widodo appeared to have heeded the pleas made by Aquino and Pacquiao as he ordered that Veloso be spared from execution that day.

However, her fate still hangs in the balance since her execution was just deferred to help Philippine authorities prosecute the brains behind the drug trafficking syndicate that used Veloso as a drug mule.

During the boxing champ’s visit to the detention centre where Veloso was awaiting her fate, she was moved to tears upon seeing the Pacquiao couple. Pacquiao did his best to offer her words of comfort and inspiration.

They said a prayer together. This was captured in a photo Pacquiao posted on his Instagram account (@mannypacquiao). “Praying with Mary Jane Veloso. Please keep her in your prayers,” he said in the caption.

Jinkee also shared similar pictures on her Instagram account (@jinkeepacquiao). “When I (prayed) for her, tears (flowed) in my eyes,” she wrote.

“Without PEACE These Beautiful Angels Will Not Go To School” : Naisula Lesuuda

On Saturday Nominated Senator Naisula Lesuuda advocated for peace after participating in a forum that took place in Isiolo county and Laikipia county. On her agenda Naisula spoke of the importance of peace and in a picture that she took with two little girls Naisula stated that peace was the only key to the children’s education.

naisula lesuuda kids

Even before she was nominated as a senator Hon. Naisula Lesuuda had a passion to promote peace in a region which has called home. Coming from the North Naisula Lesuuda has continuously seen her community battle for personal effects but she has continued to stand for peace as she believes a great good will be achieved once all is calm.

“The last two days together with other leaders from North Rift we were in Isiolo and Laikipia Counties. On the agenda I have been on even before my nomination. There are times I am almost discouraged to agree that indeed peace is elusive but the satisfaction that it is the right thing to do until it is finally achieved keeps me going.

Everyday I pray, I work for the North to be peaceful so that we can embark on ensuring in a few years we will be referred to as “Previously marginalized” By focusing on Development. Without peace these beautiful angels and many others will be out of school and it negates all we all work for and aspire. So I refuse to tire or give up.”

Naisula Lesuuda runs a foundation called Naisula Lesuuda Peace Foundation (NLPF) which is a Non Governmental Organization started in April 2013; whose objective is to create, strengthen & support peace, promote empowerment of youth & women and above all advocate school funding for vulnerable children to educate them and fight poverty!
