Police find more guns, bullets in Muthaiga home of lawyer who shot son

Published

on

ity detectives have found more firearms and bullets during a search in the home of a lawyer who ‘accidentally’ shot his son near their house in Muthaiga North.

The search on Monday unearthed two guns and 471 rounds of ammunition kept in different rooms in the house.

According to police, a pistol was found inside a safe in one bedroom and a shotgun found in a shoe rack in the library.

Also found were 285 rounds of 9mm, 47 rounds of .357 of 12 gauge, a black holster and a firearms certificate bearing the lawyer’s name.

Lawyer Assa Nyakundi Kibagendi surrendered to police on Sunday and has since been kept under custody. He is being treated as a suspect in the death of his 29-year-old son Joseph Nyakundi.

FRESH DETAILS

Fresh details have emerge as police continue to piece evidence on the circumstance of the death.

Police say the suspect’s pistol was fired twice and not once as had earlier been reported. The pistol was also found to have been loaded with 13 rounds of ammunition and not 14 as earlier thought.

An inspection of the lawyer’s motor vehicle found one spent cartridge under the mat of the front passenger seat. A bullet head was also found in the boot.

Blood stains were found on the upper left side of the back seat with a bullet hole visible on the seat.

The lawyer had earlier told police that he was trying to holster his firearm while in his car when he accidentally fired, shooting his son inside the car. He rushed his son to Aga Khan Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

The lawyer is currently admitted at Nairobi hospital under police guard after suffering blood pressure complications while in police custody.

Police have submitted the firearms certificates and identification card to the Firearms Licensing Board for verification.

Police in Nairobi have stormed a bank in the city centre in search of fake currency.

Detectives from Flying Squad stormed into Barclays Bank, Queensway branch, located on Mama Ngina Street at 1pm on Tuesday.

According to the star, flying Squad officers have intercepted billions in fake currency at Barclays Branch.

The Star reports that police sources said the owners were using the money to con people.

“It’s fake and was found inside a safe in the bank,” the sources said adding that they are currently investigating the matter.

 

Barclays in a Tweet said the fake cash belonged to a customer who has a safe in the bank

A customer who holds a personal safe deposit box at our Queensway branch was this morning intercepted by police at the branch. Police are currently investigating the contents of his safe deposit box. We are assisting the authorities to investigate this matter fully.”

Paris catches Asian tigers in most expensive city race

Published

on

Paris and Hong Kong for the first time joined Singapore as the world’s most expensive cities to live in, a study revealed on Tuesday, with utilities and transport driving up the cost of living.

Zurich, Geneva and Japan’s Osaka trailed closely, with emerging market cities like Istanbul and Moscow plummeting down the ranking due to high inflation and currency depreciation, said the Economist Intelligence Unit’s bi-annual survey of 133 cities.

It was the first time in more than 30 years that three cities shared the top spot, a sign that pricey global cities are growing more alike, said the report’s author, Roxana Slavcheva.

“Converging costs in traditionally more expensive cities … is a testament to globalisation and the similarity of tastes and shopping patterns,” she said in a statement.

“Even in locations where shopping for groceries may be relatively cheaper, utilities or transportation prices drive up overall cost of living,” she said.

Rising costs in cities are often driven by a vibrant job market attracting skilled workers with high wages, said Anthony Breach, an analyst with the British think tank Centre for Cities – which was not involved in the study.

Urban planners need to plan ahead and build more housing to keep prices affordable and overall costs down, Breach told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

For the EIU survey researchers compared the cost of more than 150 items such as cars, food, rent, transport and clothing in 133 cities.

A woman’s haircut was about $15 in Bangalore, India, compared to $210 in New York, for example, while a bottle of beer was about half a dollar in Lagos, Nigeria, and more than $3 in Zurich.

British cities recovered a few positions a year after reaching the cheapest level in more than two decades due to Brexit uncertainty, with London ranking 22nd and Manchester 51st, up eight and five spots respectively.

Political turmoil in Venezuela plummeted Caracas to the bottom of the ranking, followed by Damascus, Syria, with Karachi, Pakistan, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and New Delhi also featuring among the 10 cheapest cities.

But a city’s drop in the index does not necessarily mean life automatically gets cheaper for people living there, as prices adjust to inflation often quicker than wages, said Gunes Cansiz of the World Resources Institute (WRI), a think tank.

“The cost of living in Istanbul, for example, might seem to have decreased, but since household expenses have increased, this has no positive reflection on the daily life of Istanbulites,” said Cansiz, director at WRI’s Turkey Sustainable Cities programme.
