As the Kenyan community in metropolitan Atlanta prepares for a memorial service in honor of Mike Mulwa Ngangi – which will be held at Kenyan American Community Church in Marietta and beamed live right here on both www.ksnmedia.com and www.duniatimes.com on Sunday beginning at 11AM – Police in Birmingham, Alabama, told Kenya Satellite Network on Saturday  that they had not made any arrest(s) in connection with the murder of the 29 year-old Kenyan entrepreneur.

Mulwa was seriously wounded after being shot while working at a Citgo gas station on Parkway East last Saturday and died later in the wee hours of Sunday at a nearby hospital. Investigators believe that robbery was the motive.

“We are still doing our best to apprehend the murderer(s). We are still appealing to anyone with any information that can help with the investigations to get in touch with us,” an officer at Birmingham police Department told this reporter Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, a local TV station (WBRC – FOX News) is reporting that there were surveillance cameras inside the store. However, it still remains unclear whether the said equipment was actually functional at the time of the shooting.

Watch the video below:

Alabama does not require every convenience store and gas station to have that type of equipment, but many do.

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.

PHOTOS: Kenyan Woman Weds her Lesbian Lover in US

Published

on

A Kenyan Lesbian has married an American woman in a low key ceremony held in Dallas, Texas, USA.

Manuella Mumbi tied the knot with her American lover,  Lisa Webb Clay.

Mumbi, one of the few Kenyan women who have boldly come out to declare that they are lesbians, was born and raised in Kahawa, Kiambu County and recently relocated to the US to live with her better half before their wedding.

Webb Clay is an American model who hails from Texas. She reportedly invited Mumbi to the US to formalize their engagement.

Although same sex marriage is illegal in Kenya, it is legal in the US.

The Saturday ceremony was a totally low key affair as no witnesses were present except for the cleric who officiated their union and a cameraman.

However, after the marriage, Mumbi took to her Facebook and posted the pictures captioning them with a sweet message to her new partner.

“Unto us a day was given. Been a journey of love. Yes I do love you now and forever.”

Under Texas law, persons authorised to perform weddings include licensed or ordained Christian ministers or priests, Jewish rabbis, and an officer of a religious organisation who is authorised by the same organisation to do so.

On June 26, 2015, same-sex marriage was established in all 50 states as a result of the ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States in the landmark civil rights case of Obergefell v. Hodges, in which it was held that the right of same-sex couples to marry on the same terms and conditions as opposite-sex couples, with all the accompanying rights and responsibilities, was guaranteed by both the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The Saturday marriage took place at the local county offices that issued them with a marriage certificate.

In 2016, a Kenyan man married  an American gay professor. See the story below:

Kenyan marries fellow man in USA

 

 

A Kenyan man has tied the knot with another man in Missouri, USA. Ben Gitau, who hails from Nakuru, got married to Steve Damelin at a ceremony held at Ann Arbor, MI, on Saturday afternoon.

Soon after the event, the two were seen at the Square’s gardens kissing and fondling in public as friends and family members who had accompanied them cheered.

Mr Kararu Ririi, a close friend to the couple and a self confessed gay Kenyan residing in California, tweeted the following on Saturday shortly after attending the wedding:

“This afternoon I had a chance to congratulate my friend, Ben and his husband, Steve on occasion of their marriage. It is a rare thing to see a Kenyan man so courageous! Congratulations.”

Gitau lived in Atlanta, Georgia, before moving to the state of California.

Same-sex-marriage was legalized in the State of Missouri in June last year in a landmark US Supreme court ruling which struck down states’ bans on gay or lesbian marriages between two people “as long as they love each other.”

According to a family member who spoke to the Nation on condition of anonymity, Gitau met his ‘fiancé,’ in Atlanta where the latter was a PHD student at Georgia Institute of Technology.

Soon after taking the vows Saturday, Gitau posted the following multiple hashtags – some of which are very popular within the gay community in the US – on his twitter and Facebook accounts:

‪#‎HappilyMarried ‪#‎NewlyWed ‪#‎GayCouple ‪#‎GayHusbands ‪#‎2Hubbies‪#‎Blessed ‪#‎JewishHubby ‪#‎ChristianHubby‪#‎Hubby1 ‪#‎Hubby2 ‪#‎4Ever1‪#‎InGodsMath ‪#‎GetItRight‪#‎NoWife ‪#‎ThankYou!

Mr Damlin is a well-known American scholar and professor of Mathematics whose Masters and PhD thesis were on “Approximation for Erdos Weights”.

His contributions include the Cambridge University Press book The Mathematics of Signal Processing with Willard Miller and he has made contributions in diverse areas including number theory, finite fields, coding theory, computer vision, imaging, signal processing, quantum computing, computational and pure harmonic analysis, geometric analysis, random matrices, potential theory, approximation theory, numerical analysis and mathematics education.

His collaborators include Alfred Hero, R. Jamison and Betty Williams Professor of Engineering (University of Michigan) and 2015 IEEE Signal Processing Society award recipient and Fefferman.

He has been a member of the American Mathematical Society Mathematics Research Communities Advisory Board and the American Mathematical Society Committee of Committees. In 2005–2006, he held a New Directions Research Professor at the Interdisciplinary Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, University of Minnesota and in 2010–2011 was the principle awardee in High Performance Computing (CHPC) at the University of the Witwatersrand.

We couldn’t immediately establish what Ben Gitau currently does for a living.
