VIDEO: Man strips naked over removal of wife as Nairobi ODM MCA

Published

on

There was drama outside Nairobi County Assembly when a man stripped naked to his innerwear after he got wind that his wife’s rival was to be sworn in as MCA.

The man, identified as Job Oduor, caused a scene outside the assembly entrance protesting after a tip-off that Perpetua Mponjiwa was set to be sworn in to take the position of his wife, Eve Malenya’s position as ODM nominated MCA.

“You cannot remove my wife from her position. I want my wife back in her position,” the man shouted as he tried to access the assembly. The dramatic scene led to a small traffic snarl-up as motorists stopped to watch the free-for-all movie.

Successful court case

It took the intervention of Mathare North MCA Jared Okode alias Defao to plead with Mr Oduor to put on his clothes.

Ms Malenya was de-registered from the IEBC nomination list last year following a successful court case by Ms Mponjiwa.

Consequently, the assembly stopped paying salary to Ms Malenya as well as stopping her medical cover. But she protested her degazettement seeking court orders to stop the swearing-in of Ms Mponjiwa.

She argued that she was the right person for nomination as MCA under the gender top-up category seeking for the court to suspend the April 5, 2019 Gazette notice on Ms Mponjiwa swearing-in, arguing it is illegal.

Ms Malenya added that Ms Mponjiwa ran as an independent candidate in the 2017 General Election and therefore was ineligible to be nominated or elected under the ODM party list.

Also disputing the ruling, the electoral agency and the ODM party filed for a review of the ruling by Justice Nzioki last year July.

As a result, Ms Mponjiwa has never taken the oath of office as nominated MCA or received any salary as a ward representative.

Tears as Naivasha children buried

Published

on

Four children reportedly killed by their mother in Naivasha last Friday have been buried in an emotional send-off in Kinangop, Nyandarua County.

Those who attended the two-hour ceremony on Thursday could not hold back their tears as the caskets bearing the remains were removed from a hearse.

As the mahogany caskets were being lined up, forlorn looking locals followed the proceedings in obvious emotional turmoil.

The magnitude of the heinous killing was put into the open as villagers from the sleepy Murungaru village broke the Covid-19 protocols to attend the funeral ceremony in their numbers.

Administrators present were forced to work overtime to ensure social distancing, with the numbers continually swelling.

SPEAK OUT

During the funeral service, church leaders called on people undergoing stressful moments to speak out.

“They should reach out to their friends and relatives and pour their hearts out. The pandemic has affected the social setup but people should open up,” said Kenya Assemblies of God cleric Francis Kamau Mwaura.

The church leader admitted that the disease has taken toll on the population, voicing the need for people to bear the happenings with fortitude.

“Families are going through tough times but those affected should not suffer in silence,” added Mr Mwaura.

SOCIAL MEDIA

The family was also incensed by social media users, with their spokesman, Macharia Kimotho, tearing at them for disrespecting them.

“Some of the online users even posted the picture of the dead children. It was unethical, uncalled for and openly disgusting,” he said

“It was the least we expected. It the high time that content on the social media is regulated,” added Mr Kimotho.

He defended the family, saying their sister who is linked to the killings, was at no point neglected.

“Some of the people are saying that she did not have food. The foodstuff in her house was enough to last her for months,” pointed out Mr Kimotho.

He accused the social media users of causing the family “irreparable damage,” by some of their postings, but was quick to add that they had forgiven their tormentors.

As the four bodies were being lowered to their final resting place, tears flowed freely, screams rent their air with a number of mourners fainting.

The children were finally laid to rest at around 1.15pm.
