Kenyan in Diaspora jailed for 2 Years for ‘stealing Sh6.8 Million from Woman with Alzheimers’

Published

A Kenyan woman has been sentenced by a UK court to two years in jail for stealing $65,800 (Sh6.8 million) from an elderly woman suffering from Alzheimer’s diseases that she had been employed to look after.

 Kisella Hillman, 27, was found guilty of theft from the 85-year-old woman by the Taunton Crown Court.  She was accused of siphoning money from the elderly woman to pay for time in a recording studio and sending some to her mother in Kenya, allegedly to support an orphanage that she (the mother) runs in Kitui.

“Shortly after the money disappeared, you travelled to Kenya. You say the money went to an orphanage in Kenya, but you have not been able to provide a scrap of evidence to support that….The sad fact is that you are a congenital liar…” said judge Barnes of the Taunton Crown Court at the sentencing.

The court was told that Kisella took advantage of the woman whose mental health was in decline, and in at at least one of the transactions, took the victim with her to the bank to make a large withdrawal, after convincing the elderly woman that she was her granddaughter. Bank staff got suspicious of the transaction but approved the withdrawal anyway.

“Staff were worried. They said she seemed less confident, less aware of her financial situation and they were concerned she was being taken advantage of. They asked why she was withdrawing the money and why she wanted to close the account,” Taunton Crown Court Prosecutor Nikki Combe told the court.

Kisell managed to withdraw the cash despite the bank’s suspicion but one family member happened to witness the incident and called police.

Kenya Railways has announced that it will add five more coaches to the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) passenger train that shuttles between Nairobi and Mombasa to cater for the rise in passenger numbers in the festive season.

The extra coaches that will cater to both economy and first-class passengers will be added starting December 22, 2019 to January 3, 2020.

The train service, dubbed Madaraka Express, is currently fully booked for the Christmas season as Kenyans seek convenience, fast and affordable travel.

“With the exception of Dec. 28, the morning train from Mombasa and the afternoon train from Nairobi will feature an additional first-class and four economy class coaches from Dec. 22, to Jan. 3, 2020,” said Kenya Railways in a notice.

Kenya Railways has normally increased the train coaches during the holiday season as demand surges and has steadily increased coaches on the Nairobi-Mombasa route since the SGR passenger train was launched in June 2017.

The rising demand for the SGR passenger train service has however dealt a huge blow to commuter bus operators.

Eric Omondi and his ex-lover Chantal Grazioli broke the hearts of many when they announced that they had indeed broken up.

In the last few months, the two young lovers have had endless squabbles over personal differences and they finally called it quits, with ‘Chep’ moving out of their home.

“Yes Josh and I broke up like three months now. Being a single mum is amazing since I get to enjoy my own space.

Furthermore, my parents separated when I was barely 13 years and my mum took over the parenting mantle so I don’t consider this an issue, I probably am following her footsteps,” she says.

The pair had been together for three years and are blessed with a cute one-year old daughter whom they are co parenting very well despite their squabbles.

Learn from us, says Omondi as he reveals ex-lover’s new move

Published

on

There is no love lost between comedian Eric Omondi and his Italian ex-girlfriend Chantal Grazioli.

This is after Omondi in a message to his followers advocating against suicide and murder over love, revealed that Grazioli will be in Kenya for Christmas.

Omondi stated that the youth need to learn from his relationship with the beauty that breakups are never that serious and do not need to end badly. 

“Guess whose back for Christmas? This still goes out to all the young people out there, I hope this will be a good lesson that it doesn’t always have to end badly. Don’t kill yourself or physically hurt people because you are separating or can’t be together anymore. It’s never really that serious.

On whether they are getting back together, he noted that they were friends before turning into lovers; a fact, he said, will never change.

“The people you meet in your life are precious, they may leave today and be back in the future or never at all. Chanty and I were the BEST of friends before anything else and that will never change. Chanty amekuja Krisi, hebu let’s welcome her to Kenya,” added Omondi.

The split

According to Chantal, their breakup was amicable. A decision they took after having a sit down early in the year after four-years of dating.

In a post after Omondi made their split public in April, Grazioli stated that she will always cherish the moments she shared with the comedian.

“Hello guys, I hope this finds you well I have been silent for a while…Eric and I have had long discussions for the past one month. As you all know my family lives in Italy and it’s been really challenging for both of us.

“I love Eric and I will always love him and we are okay; we created the best of moments together, we shared our dreams and visions but most importantly we shared our lives. And I will always cherish every single moment.

As I write this post I want to ask God to always protect you and your dreams until our paths meet again. I hate goodbyes so it’s not a goodbye it’s more like a see you later. I will always be here for you anytime, any day Eric Omondi,” she wrote.

Divulging further, Omondi, at the time, revealed that Grazioli had also requested to permanently stay in Italy after years of travelling back and forth to exclusively visit him.

“Whenever she jetted into Kenya, she always came to visit me. With her tourist visa, she cannot work in the country. And, she recently asked me if I can allow her to permanently stay in Italy and get formal employment there.

“And because I had seen her stay in my house doing nothing meaningful, I saw it wise to grant her request. Given we would stay far apart from each other over an unknown period, we reached a mutual agreement to end the relationship.”

Omondi has a son with media personality Jacque Maribe.
