FBI offers $10,000 reward for kenyan fugitive Kamau Kambui over sex trafficking

FBI agents have issued a notice for fugitive Kamau Kambui, a man of Kenyan origin suspected to have trafficked a minor for prostitution.

The US agency has offered a reward of up to$10,000 (Sh1 million) for anyone with information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the 28-year-old also known as Leland Curnal.

He was described as being 5’11”, weighing 185 pounds and having black hair and brown eyes. His aliases are Kamau K Curnal, Kamau Kambui Carnal, and Jr Kamau Curnal.

“Curnal should be considered armed and dangerous. Do not attempt to contact him directly. If in the immediate vicinity, call 911,” reads the notice.

“Anyone with general information or tips about the location of Curnal is asked to call the FBI office in his or her area. In Portland, the number is (503) 224-4181. In Seattle, the number is (206) 262-0460.”

The FBI said the man was charged by a federal grand jury in Oregon in October 2016, with the sex trafficking of a child and transporting a minor for prostitution.

“The indictment alleges that Curnal and a second man, Aaron Barnes, drove a minor victim from Portland to Seattle as part of a trafficking operation.”

The FBI arrested Barnes in November 2016 in Lincoln, Nebraska. His case awaits further court action.

The notice on Kambui resulted from allegations of criminal activity in Oregon but he is believed to have ties in Seattle where he may be living.

VIDEO: US-Based Kenyan Woman Whose Daughter Confessed to Infecting Men with HIV speaks out

Published

on

A US-based Kenyan woman whose daughter recently admitted to deliberately infecting men with HIV is speaking out. In an interview with Jeremy Damaris of  Kikuyu Diaspora Media, Njoki’s mother Lucy Ng’endo has accused her daughter of lying during her interview with Tuko.co.ke.

In the past interview, the 36-year-old Jackline Njoki Mwangi partly blamed her mother who she said moved to the US leaving her behind.

But now Ng’endo says contrary to her daughter’s assertion, she brought her up like any other parent would but she “developed bad behaviors in her early teenage years.”

“It reached a time that I traveled and she started getting herself into bad practices. I actually think it started a long time, it is just that I had not known,” added Ng’endo.

“I have gone through so much pain because of this child,” she added.

The mother further said that their current disagreement was due to her refusal to send money to her daughter, adding that she has constantly insulted her using unprintables.

“But I still love her,” she says.

“Whenever she calls me, she is demanding for money. I found out she was just using me. I have sent her money many times and she uses it for her personal luxuries,” she said.

“I cannot fail to love her despite all this. We have never abandoned her because she is sick. I love her and if she wants medical help I will help her,” added Ng’endo.

She was infected with HIV when she was 18 years old as she tried to make money for herself and her nephew’s upkeep.

Kimunya hits at Maraga over Parliament dissolution

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya has accused Chief Justice David Maraga of creating chaos in the country with his advisory to President Uhuru Kenyatta on dissolving the Parliament.

Kimunya said Maraga made advisory just a week after he appeared before a House committee that apparently annoyed him by insisting he should be prepared to leave office soon.

Speaking to K24 on Sunday, September 27, Kimunya said Maraga appeared before the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee on the September 14 and a week later, he issued the advisory “as an act of self-preservation”.

“This advisory was not done in good faith. It was an act of self-preservation,” he said.

The majority leader also added that the CJ was fully aware that the House had started the process of passing the law allowing for the representation of the marginalised groups including women.

He said there was a matter pending in court also linked to the law and said it was shady that Maraga did not wait for the court case to be determined but thought it was better the Parliament to be dissolved.

In his letter to the president, Maraga said the National Assembly and the Senate had failed to enact legislation required to implement the gender rule for nine years.

He said the dissolution of Parliament under Article 261(7) needed to be enforced to compel the political elite to fully adhere to the 2010 Constitution.
