VIDEO: Kalonzo’s swearing in could be done in Germany – Committee

NASA Co-principal and former presidential running mate Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka may have to be sworn in  in Germany as Mr Odinga’s deputy, the People’s assembly organising committee said Saturday.

“We are still working out the modalities and we will soon decide whether he will be sworn in in Germany or he will come here briefly and then fly back,” said Oduor Ong’wen, a member of the committee.

Mr Musyoka, the Wiper Party leader, has been missing in action since early October. He has been in Germany where his wife, Pauline Musyoka, is said to be hospitalised and receiving specialized treatment.

During a press conference held in Nairobi, the members, who included controversial economist, David Ndii, promised their supporters that the venue of the inauguration event would be announced on Sunday. They however said they would not preempt the day’s itinerary.

In spite attempts to dissuade him from going ahead with the “swearing-in” ceremony slated for Tuesday, Mr Odinga has insisted that it is within the law as he does not recognise  Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidency.

The diplomatic community does not think it is a good idea for Odinga to go on with the plans while the country’s Attorney General, Githu Muigai, has termed “any swearing in of a person not declared the winner of a presidential contest by the electoral board” as committing high treason whose punishment – if proven – is death.

Police impound two more luxury vehicles which are registered as motorbikes

Published

on

Detectives on Tuesday impounded two top of the range vehicles which were registered as motor cycles.

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said the two vehicles, a Range Rover Overfinch and a Mercedes S500 with registration numbers KBN 591A and KBG 330E, reportedly belonged to an official of the Nairobi County.

The vehicles were found in his premises and inside the boot of the Mercedes police officers also recovered two pairs of number plates KCR 985U and KCR 196P.

The recovery comes just three days after detectives impounded two vehicles for evasion of duty through an organized racket which purports that they were manufactured at a fictitious company in Mombasa.

The two Mercedes Benz (registration numbers KCR 565 W and KCR 195 P) which were impounded on Saturday, belonged to Ms Cynthia Wanjiru Gitonga and Mr John Mwangi respectively.

According to the DCI, the two cars were declared as having been manufactured as trailers in a Mombasa-based firm.

Just last week the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) intercepted three high-end fuel guzzlers at the Mombasa Port which were on transit to Uganda.

The three vehicles – a Range Rover Sport, a Range Rover Vogue and Land Rover Discovery – confirmed stolen in Interpol’s motor vehicles database were reportedly concealed in a container which was supposed to be ferrying household goods.

SHOCKING: 48 children discover they were born after Fertility Doctor used his own sperm without their Parents’ consent

Published

on

An Indiana fertility doctor who used his own sperm to artificially inseminate his patients without their consent has been confirmed to be the father of at least 48 children, many of whom only recently discovered their true identities.

One of those children, 33-year-old Heather Woock, spoke out about how she learned who her father is in a report published this week by The Atlantic.

Woock, of Indianapolis, said when a stranger reached out to her in August 2017 claiming to be her half sibling, she didn’t believe it.

However, she was disturbed that the mystery person mentioned the name of Dr Donald Cline, the fertility specialist her mother had seen before she was born.

Woock’s mother told her not to worry about it, so she didn’t. Until the stranger kept messaging her, followed by several others claiming to be her half siblings.

They tracked her down on Facebook through her username on the Ancestry.com account she created when her husband gave her a DNA test for Christmas.

Her parents, who went to Cline for donor insemination, say they had no idea that he was the person who provided the sperm sample.

DNA tests from services including 23andMe and Ancestry.com confirmed at least 48 children that were fathered by Cline.

The number could likely be much higher considering the number of people who haven’t ever done DNA tests.

Many of Cline’s children have built a community since learning the news, keeping in touch through a Facebook group.

Every holiday season they brace for the reveal of even more siblings through DNA tests given as gifts.

One of the first people to discover that Cline is their father was Jacoba Ballard.

She’d known from a young age that she was conceived via sperm donor, and in 2014 at the age of 33 she began looking for half-siblings who shared that donor.

Ballard signed up for an online forum for adoptees and donor conceived children and quickly located another woman who had been treated by Cline.

She told The Atlantic that as soon as she saw the woman’s Facebook photos, she knew without a doubt that they were related.

‘I was like, Oh my goodness, I think that is my sister,’ Ballard said.

That woman connected her with another woman whose mother had also gone to Cline, and that woman had a sister.

The four women decided to take tests from 23andMe to confirm that they were related.

Those tests revealed that not only were they related to each other, they also had four more half-siblings, bringing the total number to eight.

As the four women continued their search for the biological father that connected them by cross-matching their DNA with public databases to find relatives, a technique that investigators have begun using to identify crime suspects, one name kept cropping up: Cline’s.

The doctor had told his patients that the donors he’d used to inseminate them were medical residents, and that he only used each donor for three successful pregnancies.

However, 23andMe tests contradicted that account by showing that he’d used one donor at least eight times between 1979 and 1986, a much longer period than the average medical residency.

Ultimately, Ballard and her half-siblings tracked down a woman who shared their DNA and said she had a cousin named Donald Cline who practiced medicine in Indianapolis.

It was through that woman that the half-siblings tracked down Cline’s immediate family, who helped them set up a meeting with the doctor in 2016.

During that first family reunion between Cline and six newly discovered half-siblings, the father allegedly admitted to using his own sperm to inseminate some 50 unwitting patients in the 70s and 80s. He said that their medical records had been destroyed years earlier.

The admission ultimately led to a criminal investigation resulting in Cline being charged with lying to investigators about having inseminated the woman.

The now-80-year-old received a one-year suspended sentence in December 2017.

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.
