LINKIN PARK lead vocalist Chester Bennington commits suicide at 41




Chester  Bennington singer of the rock band Linkin Park, was found dead Thursday according to a spokesman for the LA County Coroner.

He was 41.
The coroner’s office was called out to a home in Palos Verdes Estates shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday. Authorities said they were treating the case as a possible suicide.
Bennington’s band found success in 2000 with their album “Hybrid Theory” with Bennington’s heartfelt vocals leading the way.
That voice, it turned out, was fueled by anguish.
Bennington was open about his troubled life, including an introduction to smoking pot after his parents divorced when he was 11, which escalated to cocaine and methamphetamine use.
He also suffered sexual abuse as a child, he said.
“When I was young, getting beaten up and pretty much raped was no fun, “No one wants that to happen to you and honestly, I don’t remember when it started.”
Spotting a photo of himself as a child at his mother’s house from around the time of the abuse brought it all back, Bennington recalled.
“I remember that stuff happening to me at that stage and even thinking about it now makes me want to cry,” he said. “My God, no wonder I became a drug addict. No wonder I just went completely insane for a little while.”
The group enjoyed cross-over success with the 2004 mash up “Numb/Encore” which combined their song “Numb” with rapper Jay-Z’s “Encore.”
The single was featured on a collaborative album, “Collision Course,” and won an award for best rap/sung collaboration at the 2006 Grammy Awards.
The news caused an outpouring of grief among celebrities, especially coming so soon on the heels of the death of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, a close friend of Bennington’s who committed suicide in May.
Bennington had reportedly performed Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” at Cornell’s memorial service.
Bennington’s bandmate Mike Shinoda tweeted, “Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one.”
Late night host Jimmy Kimmel wrote, “Chester was one of the kindest men I’ve had on my show. My heart breaks for his family and friends. He will be missed terribly.”

1) Freelancing

This is probably one of the most popular forms of online employment. When you are a freelancer, you pick the tasks that you want to work on and you are not committed to a single employer. The top available freelancing jobs include writing (academic, article, ghostwriting), transcription (converting video and/or audio to text), virtual assistant jobs, software development jobs and design.


2) Kindle Publishing

Kindle Direct Publishing is an e-book publishing unit run by Amazon. In short, you can write your own book and publish it there. You get to sell your e-book to millions of readers across the world. It takes you five minutes to publish your e-book and it goes online in about 48 hours’ time, sometimes less. The advantages of Kindle publishing are: the e-book can become a form of passive income for life, there are no charges to publish your book and you can post as many e-books as you wish.

However, the cons to it is that when you publish your ebook on the Kindle Direct Publishing platform, you cannot publish it anywhere else BUT Amazon, for a 90-day period. You also need to pick a good niche and market your book\s aggressively

3) Domain Flipping

Domain flipping is simply the buying and selling of domains. A domain is more like a website address such as “”. Some people create or buy domain names then keep them, hoping someone will need them and buy from them. To make money from domain flipping, you have to identify some domains which you think will be easy to sell. For instance, you can create a domain name “www.onlinejobsforkenyans” since more people will be looking for online jobs soon. In the future, an organization might buy the domain name from you for good cash!

4) Niche Websites

The other way you can use to make money from home is by creating and running a niche site. By niche, I mean you create a website that will focus on a very specific thing. That specific thing maybe pet food, health and fitness, or fashion. You then focus on getting good traffic and earn money via Google Adsense or affiliate marketing. Patrick Mahinge, who shared his story here, is earning well over $4,000 with his niche site.

5) Dropshipping

That can’t be right Sheeroh. How in the world will someone earn money online by dropping ships in the ocean?

Let me explain.

Dropshipping is  one of the most interesting online enterprising concepts ever. Most people who dropship use e-bay or  aliexpress. When you are a dropshipper, you become an indirect marketer for e-bay (or another online shop). You pick some items which you can afford to pay for and market them. Let’s say it’s a computer that’s worth $100. You market it and get a client whom you charge $160 for the computer. You pay for the computer and have the supplier deliver it to the client. After the sale, you will have made a profit of $60.

The advantage of this method is that you don’t need a capital to start and you do not need a physical store, but some of the downsides to this is that there can be shipping delays and sudden stock shortages. This can happen because you are not the supplier and you are not in control over the inventory.

Eric Mbaya, a Facebook friend of mine, has been dropshipping since 2015. He swears it’s the best thing since … nothing. He says there’s nothing like it! You can join his Facebook group here.

6) YouTube Videos

This is another way of making money online in Kenya. You can earn money by having a YouTube channel! (Sorry, not by watching :)). YouTube will pay you if you have a monetized channel. By monetizing your channel, I mean that you have to connect it to an AdSense account and you will earn money every time someone watches the videos for at least 30 seconds or clicks on the ads. Please note that your viewers MUST click the ads for you to get paid.

7) Write ebooks and sell on Facebook

If you never thought that you could make money through Facebook, now there is a way. Talented authors and designers are continually creating excellent works and marketing them on Facebook. The best way to earn from Facebook is to join marketing groups and pages or create your own. From there, write juicy books that people would be interested to read. Once you are established, people will not be afraid to pay you for your books.

8) Create and Run Courses

Are you good at something, like really good? This can be cooking, tailoring, academic tutoring, painting lessons and so on. The good news is that you can create courses online and have people enroll at a fee! Simply create a perfectly detailed course in text, video or audio then consult platforms such as mail Chimp, Aweber (email marketing services) or Udemy to know how best to present the courses. You will be surprised at how well this idea might perform as people are ever thirsty for knowledge. My transcribe like a pro ecourse was very popular until I decided to take a break from training on transcription this year 

8) Sell photos online

Websites, bloggers, designers, social media personalities, celebrities and artists are ever hunting for images to use in their daily activities. However, they cannot go taking photos of them, and that is where you can come in. You need a good camera or camera phone to start making some good cash online. Take very clear and high quality (HD) images of different things and places.

Shoot the skies, underwater, African jungle, busy cities, animals, upcountry, and other creative things. Then join photo selling websites such as, Shutterstock, PhotoShelter, Fotolia, 123RF and post them there. The more photos and better quality you present, the more money you can make.

9) Blogging 

Blogging is a common way of making money online in Kenya. A blog is more of an informal website which is normally written in a conversational tone and is updated regularly. You’re actually on my blog right now. Create a blog, write great content, market it and aim to get good traffic. From there, you can sell eBooks or eCourses and other consultancy services at a fee. You can also promote other people’s products and get a commission (affiliate marketing)

10) Sell Your Artsy Stuff On Etsy

The website, Etsy welcomes all creative minds who can make interesting items with their hands to market them there. They accept a wide range of items; jewelry, toys, art items, clothing, gifts, home décor and so on. You can visit the site and get an idea of the items posted by other users.

11) Affiliate Marketing

Another great way to make extra money online is via affiliate marketing. This is where online businesses affiliate (or associate) themselves with website owners or social media users to market themselves, gain traffic and generate sales. The online businesses can pay for each new client introduced by the affiliate. You can become an affiliate to a bigger website or online business if you have a blog, or if you use social media a lot.


12) Bitcoin Trading

Let me introduce you to one of the newest ways of making money online in Kenya: Bitcoin Trading. Bitcoin is a currency just like the Kenya Shilling or the US dollar, only that it is virtual (can’t be touched). It is used for online activities where you can buy and sell goods with it, or even get paid with it. There are two ways of earning from it; trading it or mining it.

How you trade bitcoins is by buying them (1 Bitcoin is currently worth $917 at the time of writing this) and keeping them until they gain value and then selling them. The second method (mining) is more complex as you have to set up your computer to solve some puzzles about Bitcoin and get paid when you successfully solve them. Bitcoin is harder to steal than cash and is constantly gaining value.

13) Forex Trading

Forex Trading might sound new to most of us but it isn’t. This art has been with us for decades, only that it has been gaining popularity in recent years. Forex is just about the exchange of currencies, like when you have some dollars that you want to exchange for Kenya Shillings. Forex traders buy some currencies (e.g. dollars) and predict that its rate will increase in the next 1 hour, day, week, month, etc. If you predicted correctly, the money you invested will be growing until you decide to stop the trade and take the profits. Remember that if you predict wrongly, you might lose all your money in a few moments! Ken, who I interviewed in this post, is still trading Forex successfully.

14) Betting

There has been a lot of buzz about this method of making money. I assume we all have some ideas on what it is. You invest some cash with websites like Sportpesa, Betway, or Betin then predict the outcome of some football matches. If your bets are correct, you win some money. If any of your bets is incorrect, then you lose the money. This is one of the most controversial ways of making money. Some people are making fortunes out of it as others lose money and sink into absolute misery. It is advisable to always calculate your moves before taking monetary risks.

kenyan president Uhuru kenyatta teaches Mombasa Governor Joho a lesson

Media trying to impricate Kenya finest musisian Jaguar in an accident on kirinyaga roadA car belonging to musician, Kanyi Njagua, popularly known as Jaguar, has hit and killed two people, including a student, in Kirinyaga County. The musician, police say, was driving his Range Rover heading towards Makutano when he lost control and veered off the road before hitting a motorcyclist and his passenger, the student at Rukanga on Wednesday. DIED ON THE SPOT Police on Thursday said the vehicle, which was later towed to the Sagana Police Station, had “loose chippings” (sic). The motorcyclist, Mugo Mwangi, 21, and the student, James Maingi,21, died on the spot and their bodies were taken to the Kibugi Mortuary. The musician on Thursday morning took to social media to express his distraught about the accident, moments after news of it went viral. “It is with grief that I share this post today. As it is now public, I was involved in a car accident. Sadly, lives were lost in the incident. VEERED OFF “It isn’t any one’s will to wake up and be involved in an accident such as this. My heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of those affected. I would like to assure all concerned that due process of the law is being followed to amicably resolve this,” he said and asked the public to refrain from any sort of confrontations. Mr Njagua told the Nation on phone that he was driving onSagana- Makutano road when the motorcyclist tried to cross in front of him. “I tried my best to stop but it was too close. The car hit the two and we all veered off the road,” he said, adding that he was with two other occupants in the car. WOMAN He denied claims by some blogs that the car was being driven by a woman, and said that witnesses had already recorded statements on the incident at the police station. “It was an unfortunate incident and it is sad that some people are talking about things they know nothing about,” Mr Njagua, who has announced his interest in the Starehe parliamentary seat, said. None of the three occupants of his car was injured. Central Region Traffic Commander Jane Kuria confirmed the fatal crash saying the musician, official name Charles Kanyi, was behind the wheel of the Range Rover at the time of the accident.

Mombasa governer Joho locked out in president Uhuru mtongwe lounch after 10 years of its un operation

A tweet from Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho’s aide on Sunday is said to have sparked a massive security operation that barred Mr Joho from a function presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta yesterday.


The tweet said the governor would ‘respond’ to the President’s criticism at the Tononoka rally. What followed was a massive security operation that involved heavily armed General Service Unit, presidential guards, Kenya Police, forest rangers and plainclothes detectives.


  • The security forces had firm instructions to keep Joho and his supporters from Uhuru’s function at the Likoni Ferry Channel.

  • There was a lock-down whichled to a massive traffic snarl-up especially on Nyali Bridge as the police, with sniffer dogs, stopped vehicles for a search, apparently looking for the governor.
Joho had earlier managed to slip through the GSU barricade at his residence. Speaking later to journalists, he revealed how he managed to get into town in a private vehicle which was eventually impounded at the bridge.
“I was in a private car belonging to a relative but could not go far due to an unusual traffic snarl up occasioned by police checks. They (police) managed to even stop my official vehicle but only found the driver as I had used alternative means,” he said.

At the bridge a standoff and war of words ensued between Joho and Mombasa Urban Directorate of Criminal Investigation Offficer (DCIO), Jacob Kanake, who led the team of officers manning the bridge, when governor was barred from moving into town.
“Do not threaten me officer. Do not threaten me with death because everybody is born once and dies once,” Joho who was accompanied by his chief of staff Idriss Abdulrahman said as tempers flared amid pushing and shoving.
Joho, Mvita MP Abdulswamad Nassir and Kisauni legislator Rashid Bedzimba engaged in a bitter exchange with Kanake and his officers.
Youths gathered at the scene and began shouting “stop harassing our governor!”
Joho and the MPs slipped into a private vehicle. Moments later, he entered the city on a motorcycle and addressed journalists in his office which was also surrounded by armed policemen.
Addressing journalists, Joho said he was not trying to impose himself on Uhuru’s function, but felt he was duty-bound to attend the Mtongwe function to represent the people of Mombasa as their governor.
He said he also needed to be at the function to respond to “falsehoods and lies” he alleged the president peddled against him and his administration during the Tononoka rally.

“The reason they did not want us to attend was because they felt we could get an opportunity to respond to the falsehoods and lies,” he said.
Joho cited an assertion by Uhuru on Saturday that the his administration had received Sh40 billion from the national government since 2013.
“This is not true because we have received about Sh17 billion since 2013,”  he said, adding that the money was not a favour or gift “but in line with a constitutional obligation.”
Joho also argued that besides “setting the record straight” on the cash disbursements from the national government he had an obligation to listen to what the State had to say about ferries, which he said, was a devolved function.
He said his government had rebuilt roads leading to the Mtongwe ferry service.
Joho also claimed Uhuru feared he would raise the question of why squatters were asked to pay for settlement on the Waitiki Farm in Likoni last year after the State bought the land from its owner.
Separately, several youths were arrested in Likoni and within town as crowds gathered after reports of Joho’s troubles spread.
The name of Coast Regional Commissioner Nelson Marwa came up in the incident, with Mvita legislator Abdulswamad Nassir claiming that the administrator had threatened him on Sunday night accusing ODM of planning to disrupt Uhuru’s function at Mtongwe.
