A seven-year-old boy died after a brutal attack on Sunday evening in Matungu sub-county, raising the number of people killed in the area to 21.

Malik Moi, a Grade One pupil at Bulimbo Star Academy, was attacked by unknown assailants, as he played with friends.

According to friends he was playing hide-and-seek with, Moi had hidden in an abandoned house where he was later found with stab wounds in the neck and stomach.

The incident happened at 7pm at Simba wa Nyika village when the boy’s parents had left for evening prayers at a nearby mosque.

His friends said they fled when Moi screamed for help.By the time the first rescuer came to his aid, the boy was dying.

A bloodied knife suspected to have been used in the brutal attack was found a few metres from the scene.“He was gasping for breath when he was found, still alive but in pain,” said Rashid Kweyu, the boy’s uncle.

Screaming neighbours

Malik’s mother, Miriam Kaloki, who had just returned from the mosque, said she was in the kitchen preparing the evening meal when she heard screams from neighbours and rushed outside.“I went out and saw people running to one of the houses close to the road. They told me my child’s intestines were spilling out,” she said.

The family rushed the boy to St Mary’s Hospital, Mumias, where he was referred to Kakamega County Referral Hospital but died on the way.

The police were for the better part of yesterday at the boy’s home collecting evidence and taking witness statements.The killing happened in the same family that a man and his pregnant wife were murdered in late March.

Shiundu Kongangi, 29, and his wife Wanjiru Shiundu were on March 27 found stabbed and clobbered to death by unknown people.

The attack also happened on the night when four politicians were released after being held for two days for questioning on the recent Matungu killings.

Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala, Matungu MP Justus Murunga, Mayoni MCA Libinus Oduor and former Sports CS Rashid Echesa were held over the weekend.

Released on Sunday

They were released on Sunday night after the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji ordered further investigations.

Condoling with the family, Mr Murunga called on police to do more to arrest culprits behind the killings.

“The Government should act swiftly and ruthlessly to tame these killings that are even targeting children,” he said.

Suspects in fake gold scandal walk free

Individuals linked to the gold syndicate in which a member of the United Arab Emirates royal family was conned of Sh400 million continue to walk free, as the controversy surrounding the matter intensifies.

With revelation that the victim of the con game, Mr Ali Zandi, says he will take nothing less than the gold he paid for, there are fears that the situation could result in a diplomatic tiff.

STATEMENT

Mr Zandi is the nephew of Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Emir (ruler) of the UAE.

Reports that the Emir had personally sought the intervention of President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga raised the stakes on the scandal

However, despite the President having been made aware of the matter a month ago by a fellow head of a state, Kenyans are yet to see any arrests and prosecution of suspects. Politician Zaheer Jhanda, who has been identified as having played a key role in the scam, did not present himself to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) as he had promised during a recent interview on NTV.

“Nobody has called me. The DCI has not summoned me. I’ve heard my name mentioned and as a law-abiding citizen of this nation, I’ll go to see the DCI,” he said on Saturday, adding: “I’ll present myself and I’m ready to be questioned. I’ll go myself and talk to them and shed any kind of light they’d want me to shed,” he said.

By Monday, however, Jhanda was yet to be summoned as were the rest of the players in the scandal, who have since gone underground. None of the five other people linked to the scandal have recorded statements.

Meanwhile, it emerged that Jhanda’s wife, Alice Moraa, could also be called for questioning by the police. She is listed as Jhanda’s representative in one of the articles of association related to her husband’s company ZMJ limited.

The Director of Criminal Investigation, Mr George Kinoti, had Monday promised to issue a statement on the matter.

Sources from the DCI headquarters told the Nation that Mr Kinoti had been briefed on the key people under investigation and was supposed to sermon them publicly for questioning.

IMPERSONATING

The scandal has caused a political storm after an audio recording of a conversation believed to be between Mr Zandi and a Kenyan politician was leaked to the public.

In the recording, the politician informs the Sheikh that Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga would seek President Kenyatta’s help to have him order the release of the consignment of gold alleged to have been seized by Kenyan authorities.

Kenya Urban Roads Authority (Kura)

Kenya Urban Roads Authority (Kura) has bragged about the newly opened Waiyaki Way-Redhill link,  calling it a master piece.

The Sh3 billion dual carriageway starts from Waiyaki Way and passes through Kyuna, Spring Valley, Kitisuru and Peponi to end at Redhill.

It is supposed to give access to Westlands

Kura’s brag triggered anger from Kenyans who swiftly pointed out glaring design anomalies of the new road.

The road lacks space for non-motorized transport, signage, trees and many more.

Here is what Kenyans want fixed before it can be called a masterpiece.
