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.

Governor Lonyangapuo: If you have any of these characters you’re a ‘mulmulwas’

Published

on

West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo has explained the true meaning behind his hilarious ‘Kijana fupi round’ phrase which left Kenyans in stitches.

Speaking during an interview with news anchor Betty Kyallo during her Up close with Betty show on K24, the governor outlined the unique qualities possessed by a person for them to earn the title and be referred to as a Mulmulwas.

This is anyone, he said, who is good at doing nothing and becomes a nuisance in all that he or she does.

“Mulmulwas is anybody who is good at doing nothing, becomes a nuisance in the way he works, walks, talks even in the way he behaves. You are equivalent to a dung beetle that rotates dung that is not useful to anybody, not useful even to that thing called Mulmulwas. You can even see how the beetle is round, short and hopeless,” said Governor Lonyangapuo.

He added: “So any human being and in Kenya, any Kenyan in particular whose manners and behaviours is only to become a nuisance to the government, people, neighbours, parents to your children. You have a name, Mulmulwas.”

The funny phrase was coined by the governor in March this year to deride activist Dennis Ruto Kapchok who had questioned why deputy governor Nicholas Atudonyang works from the United States of America.

Octopizzo has set tongues wagging on social media with a new hairdo with many declaring it a fail on the rapper’s creativity on matters grooming.

He also commented on singer Willy Paul’s change in music Genre mocking him that he should not expect any ‘Sadaka’ as he transition to secular music.

But his speech appeared to land on deaf ears as netizens could only comment on his hairstyle.

Octopizzo normally shaves his hair leaving some on the crown of his head. This time around, though, he decided to plait cornrows at the hair left at the crown of his head, and topped off the look with a hair extension.

Another area of interest was his interestingly more than usual shiny forehead. Here are some of Kenyans on twitter reactions:

“Hizo laini kwa kichwa ziko down kama tu mistari ya ngoma zake,” said @bokono.

“Hiyo hairstyles imenikumbusha tusichana twa choir na worship,” wrote @bennytothedj.

“Pizzo kwani anatumia lotion gani?” asked @langatvick.

“Huyu ameshukwa mwongezo na akajipaka elianto kwa uso,” commented @shishhope.

“I’m just here wondering about that forehead and the fact that Octo ameshuka lines za mosodo na akaweka extension bun,” stated @AKenyanGirl.
