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

Published

on

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.

Man deported back to Kenya moments after landing at his destination

Published

on

A Kenyan has been deported back to his country after being found to have secured his Visa through underhand methods. Francis Kimani alias ‘Yehudah Kimani’ was deported to Kenya from Israel after immigration officers from the Israeli Interior Ministry denied him entry into an Israeli airport on Monday evening.

The 31-year-old had traveled to the Jewish state for a three-week study program. The Times of Israel reports that Kimani managed to secure a visa on his second try, in time for the Conservative Yeshiva’s winter break program after first visa application was denied.

However, upon landing at Ben Gurion Airport, authorities at the passport inspection said his visa was not valid as it was fraudulently acquired and ordered he be deported. He was booked in the next flight to Ethiopia, but lost his bag in the mix.

“They just told me to go back, I feel like I’m not a human,” Kimani said from the Addis Ababa airport.

Rabbi Andy Sacks, director of the Conservative movement’s Rabbinical Assembly in Israel termed the extradition as “an act of outright racism.”

“Let’s be honest, he was not let into the country because he was black, and this is not the first time our converts from Africa have been given the run-around.”

Kimani is allegedly the leader of 50-member Kehilat Kasuku, a small group of families in Kenya who decided to abandon Messianic Judaism in the early 2000s. A retired judge Justin Philips had invited Kimani to study at the Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem for a short program.

“There was no question on the visa form asking for that, and if they want that information they should ask for it. This is naked racism,” Philips said.

Kimani is a tourism graduate and hopes to one day operate a kosher safari firm in Kenya.

Published

on

BY BMJ MURIITHI
Some think the cartoon is too harsh. Others say it reveals the truth on the ground. Although it doesn’t name many names, most Kenyans online think they know what Godfrey Mwampembwa (Gado) had in mind when doing the caricature. Upon seeing the cartoon, one Ngugi Mbugua wrote: “Gado is actively wooing deportation. Same way Magufuli would declare any TZ-based Kenyan cartoonist “prohibited immigrant” and deport him posthaste!”
What do you think?
 Here are some of the reactions in the social media:

Lusenaka Masinde: Try ask your child which leader is that you’ll be shocked…………. but do we say!

 Steenie Njoroge: We don’t know until we ask them. Right?

Eduardo Waigwa:  Was it published ?

Steenie Njoroge: It is here.is it not?

Emmah Mwoche:  Isn’t this illegal

Ngugi Mbugua:  Gado is actively wooing deportation. Same way Magufuli would declare any TZ-based Kenyan cartoonist “prohibited immigrant”, and deport him posthaste!

Manage

trick:  Wa!

Gilbert Mwangi:  Go Gado go!

Duncan Langat:  Steenie. Mtafungwa hapa

Ndungi Githuku:  Dere ni mlevi
Makanga ni mwizi
