If you missed the biggest stories of the week PulseUhondoMtaani has conveniently compiled all of them for you;
The tiff between former Miss Kenya Emma Too and news anchor Trevor Ombija has taken another twist after the beauty queen allegedly sued the TV news anchor.
Too, speaking in a Twitter Spaces, said the issues she raised regarding the noise caused by the restaurant owned by Trevor Ombija were few, as there were more issues that affected her.
Too revealed that the parking spot used by those looking to have good times in the joint posed a great security risk as it was improperly done, while others were dropped by taxis in undesignated drop off points.
She revealed that the joint began as a cool place before it gradually turned noisy.
“The establishment across my place started by saying it was a jazz bar. Okay, they played jazz, and if you play jazz at a low volume, it’s palatable. It’s not going to vibrate my house,” she said.
Too added that the conversations made by the attendants in the joint were in such high tones that they too added to the noise.
“Even after the music is switched off at 3:00 am or 4:00 am, the patrons are still talking loudly to each other because they’ve been listening to loud music and shouting at each other. We’re still not able to sleep,” Too noted.

Sponsoring students in Ol jororok Secondary School is among the entertainer's first charity programs, as he looks forward to scaling it to reach more students.

Diamond Platnumz's father criticises son for piercing nose
Diamond Platnumz’s father Abdul Juma has criticised his son for getting a nose piercing, saying it is not a manly thing to do.
The father who is yet to reconcile with Diamond, explained that his son went against what he considered as African male tradition.
The musician's father fears that his son may come to regret the nose piercing, just as he (Abdul) did when he tried getting 'tatooes' as a young man.
"He did a wrong thing, truth be told because our culture and traditions do not allow men to do such stuff. We tried having drawings on our bodies but right now we are regretting it," he said.
Abdul said that depsite making a lot of money, and hanging out with entertainers, his son should not have abandoned his culture.
He added that the piercing was not in line with Tanzanian doctrines, cultures, and customs.
"Maybe he did that because of his wealth and to please his friends. The likes of Tupac did it but they were Tanzanias and did not subscribe to the culture and tradition of the Mbale and Nyamwezi people. Maybe he (Diamond) tried to do what he pleased, but I was not pleased," he added.
Instead of getting the piercing, Abdul says his son should have bought himself an expensive gift to show his wealth.
He gave examples of some famous artistes in Tanzania who are still relevant despite not making any markings or piercing their bodies.
On October 26, Diamond posted a video showing him getting the piercing and a nose pin as his bodyguard looked on.
Abdul concluded by urging Diamond to seek advice from his elders and also allow his peers and friends to advise him when making decisions.
