Many will have their eyes and ears peeled on questions that will undoubtedly be posed regarding the way forward with the collapsed Imperial Bank, placed under receivership on 13th October 2015 and remaining closed with thousands of broke and angry depositors left high and dry.

CBK/KDIC, through KCB and DTB banks, made an initial payment of up to one million shillings in December 2015 with a view to shedding

more light on the way forward by the end of March 2016 pending crucial investigations. March 2016 saw CBK and KDIC extending the period of the investigation and this extended period has seen the exposure of Imperial Bank shareholders tucking money away in Panamanian offshore accounts as well as “Pop Up” Popat being revealed as simultaneously applying for a licence to open another bank, which was approved. Dubai Islamic Bank turned out to be largely the creation of that ever present in so many scams “Pop Up” Popat.

Make Free Calls Worldwide and Receive Calls to your Landline Number on Your Mobile Free

I know the title may seem rather long-winded but how could I shorten it and still describe my personal experience with Vonage? Vonage is a VOIP provider with a difference.

In the middle of 2014 I happened upon an amazing opportunity. I was about to embark on working for my company in the UK, from Kenya. I was about to move to Kenya for an unkown length of time and my company agreed that since my current role was performed using the telephone and an internet connection, I may still be able to operate from a home office in Nairobi, Kenya. Lavington to be precise. I had to do a little research to find out how this could be done. Well, firstly I would need a good internet connection and secondly I would need some kind of VOIP calling plan that would enable me to operate as though I were actually in the UK. I began my research and finally stumbled upon Vonage. What you are about to learn could open up a new way of doing business for Kenyans in the UK who want to operate from Kenya while keeping a strong presence in the UK. So many applications and business transactions you will do require a UK telephone number as a contact or even to pass security checks.

How Vonage Works

Vonage
There is no need for you to actually have a landline installed in your home or office anymore, fact. So long as you possess a reliable internet service you can wholly depend on a VOIP line as most of the entire world uses their mobile phone anyway. Vonage send you a little VOIP box no larger than a small mobile phone which you plug into your home or office router. The router is provided by your internet service provider as normal and if you already have internet at home or in your office then most of the work is done already. Now, you plug any standard phone into the little black box and plug the little black box into a power socket and you’re done! Of course, there are instructions included to help with the initial setup but a few minutes later you’re ready to start receiving and making calls as you would with a normal phone line. But the exciting part starts here.

The Exciting Stuff

When you sign up to Vonage you will choose a landline number and can actually choose the prefix that matches where you are (or want to appear to be :)) in the UK. So if you live in London or have a business serving London you can choose a number beginning with 0203. Or if you want to appear to be based in Luton you can choose a prefix starting with 01582 and so on. When you call someone from your Vonage line it will show your chosen UK number and when someone rings that number, your voip connected phone rings. Amazing! Now, Vonage have several calling plans for the UK market which starts from just £8 a month and include unlimited free minutes to any landline in the UK. Now, this UK landline number stays with you where ever you go in the world! I have been making and receiving calls to and from the UK for the last 18 months and not one customer I spoke to had any idea that I was not in the UK. And when I go back to the UK I can just plug in my box into my home router and nothing has changes. Simple. I don’t even have to take my little Vonage box with me when I travel the world and I can still make free worldwide calls and receive incoming calls. Find out how below.

Make and Receive Incoming Calls on Your Smarphone as if it Were a Landline

Vonage. after I signed up, introduced the Vonage Extensions App. This is an amazing creation I kid you not. You just download the app onto your phone whilst in the UK and then your mobile becomes your landline and both your landline phone and your mobile rings when someone calls your Vonage number, even if you are thousands of miles away. All you need is your mobile data on or be connected to wifi. If your are roaming abroad I would guess that you might want to turn your data off and wait for wifi but then if you use the Three network they let you use your inclusive minutes and data all over in a large number of countries. People who call you will only pay what they would if you were in the UK receiving a call on your home of office line and you will not pay a bean to receive the call (dependant on how you access the internet).

How Much Does Vonage Cost?

As I said earlier, monthly fees start from £8 at the time of this publication and can be increased depending on other options that you add to it. I have actually opted for the most expensive Premium Unlimited World plan with the Mobile 750 addon which costs me just £24 a month. This is the most value for money I have ever got with anything. I don’t work for my old company anymore but continued with the plan and receive/make calls all the time from Nairobi or London and no one actually knows where the heck I am, and that’s on my mobile. I also get 750 mobile minutes to UK mobiles and free calls to 68 countries! I left the Vonage box in Kenya for my family to use to call me FREE here in London. A no brainer!

Why can’t we take pictures in Junction Mall again? Why?

Sorry people but not being allowed to take a selfie or a picture of my buddies and I whilst we eat pizza in Nairobi don’t make sense to me! How on this planet earth is anyone taking a picture in or around tourist hotspots in the captital a security risk? Hold on, tourists come to Magical Kenya to create memories which involves taking pictures but I saw some police trying to extract money from a British couple just because they wanted to take a pic of themselves beside a tree on Ngong Road outside Junction. What!!?? Inside junction or any other mall in Nairobi is just the same. But somebody please please remind me what it is about a snap shot of a bunch of guys eating outside Jungle Bungle that could assist a terror attack? The terrorists in Westgate had building plans and a key, probably several of them, not pictures! Or, are we just trying to look vigilant but actually not really doing anything but annoying everyone. I can understand if we were talking about State House or another government building in town, but leisure and entertainment centres! Really? OK, maybe if I got out a tripod and a 24 inch long zoom lens with a crew 4 strong and we positioned ourselves facing the security search point, then that would be understandable. But a stupid mobile phone taking a pic outside Nakumatt?

I was once reprimanded because I forgot the highly security sensitive rule by taking a picture of my 4 year old son beside my car in the Junction Mall car park on the top level, where they have the Maasai Market on Thursday, although it was a Monday. Nothing else was in the photo but my car and my son! What the f***! Maybe I’m missing something here, such as the remote access potential terrorists may have to my Samsung’s photo gallery which may enable them to effectively reconstruct the architectural plans, all of the service entry points to the building with escape routes, along with existing security vulnerabilities. What the f***!? Surely, our energy should be going elsewhere.

Who thought of this stupid rule and who can I slap for enforcing it?

Just my take, have yours.

Vera, in my books, has less class than Huddah which places her somewhere between low and bottomed out, if you may pardon the pun. In my opinion this is mainly because most of what she relies on is fake, like her skin tone and her breasts. It appears that she guns after Huddah because she is rather envious since her own methods involve mysterious trips to Nigeria which for a woman, in anyone’s world, would most definitely involve freeing up her suppossedly “world record” holding buttocks to all manner of Naija businessmen and crooks. I know Nigeria and Nigerians very well and no chic looking like Vera can travel to Nigeria to “do business” with no education or upbringing to speak of, without taking it up the Rift Valley at every turn. Sorry, I’m just saying!

There is also the issue of her being unsuccessful in securing the “Attention Seekers Holy Grail and Pathway to Socialite Status Achievement” appointment; Big Brother Africa! And Huddah did so without taking off her draws, well at least not in front of the judges anyway.

I am sure that Huddah Monroe herself would not claim to be a role model even if many youths and young people the world over feel as though she is. I am not really a fan but for the purposes of this forum I had to do a little research about the Kenyan “socialite” born Alhuda Njoroge, in 1991.

Some observations:

Her Past is too Dubious to make Her a Role Model

Having “Freelance Modelling” as your claim to an education is in itself, dubious. Is there even such a college course and what would the curriculum be? Attending a modelling agency’s “course” is not really an education is it? To mention somehwere else of a Diploma in Programming sounds like you’re making things up or including a basic unrecognised back street college course that was never actually completed. If you are truly well educated then let the youths know and let them admire you for that.

If one of your main endearing qualities is “loves clubbing” and another is “loves showing off”, coupled with a desire to seek attention from men and hatred from women; you have dubious qualities. None of this qualifies her as a “role model.” The problem is that the youth do not realise this and probabl wouldn’t care if they did. I’m sure there are young ladies (and perhaps some older) dreaming to get just a brief insight into how Huddah makes her money. Or should we say how she “gets” all of those things.

She is Very Good at What She Does

We could argue that appearing like an expensive slut is now necessary to keep her momentum going or her brand would die. I say she is really really good at what she does and hey, it beats hanging around in Black Diamond for the next “good mzungu” to show up. She has applied herself to getting her name out there by showcasing “glam” or “bling” at every opportunity. She has relentlessly observed how people react with varying degrees of love and hate by her actions, and works it like a stripper! Love her or hate her, she knows exactly what she is doing. At least I truly hope so. In addition, she is actually extremely hot!!

Access to Money But No Class

One thing is for sure, she makes it blatantly obvious that she has no class. No one of any standing or common decency would behave the way she does regarding expensive items and you definitely do not tell your fans, many of whom are living in or close to poverty, you have a ring worth more than Ksh100 million shillings. [b]Class demands that people may hold you in awe and know your worth without you having to spell it out for them[/b] everytime you step onto an aeroplane or into a shopping mall. I know that somehwere she has a heart. I just hope for her sake that the scars of a hard life do not suffocate it to death.

If Huddah stopped acting like an expensive slut she would probably continue to grow her wealth if she is truly smart. But once a tramp always a tramp. In fact, she should start a Socialite College, there are thousands of chics who would attend.

Don’t forget the true definition of a socialite though:

“A socialite is a person (usually from a privileged, wealthy or aristocratic background), who has a largely known reputation and a high social position in upper class society.”

So I guess Huddah is actually not a socialite.

This has recently been misnomered to:

“A person who is rich and unemployed. Must be in active contact with the media and other rich and unemployed people”

Urbandictionary.com

Possibly!

But this is just my take on things.

After all is said and done though; Huddah is Hot!!!!! Damn!
