A lecturer at a Kenyan University has been arrested after allegedly beating his wife on new year’s eve after they argued over a phone call made by another woman and ultimately causing her death the following day (Jan 1st).

Local media reported that Dr Fredrick Onyango Ogolla, a lecturer at Strathmore Business School, appeared before a magistrate at the Kibera Law courts Wednesday morning .

He however did not take a plea as police sought more time to complete their investigations.

Dr Ogolla is suspected of beating Margaret Gobi Mwachongo on the evening of December 31, 2017 at their Lavington home, leading to her death.

The charge sheet says the couple had quarreled before engaging  in a physical fight.

“It is suspected that they had a very bitter argument after a phone call by another woman to her husband,” a source told KSN on Wednesday.

Following the altercation, the woman sustained serious injuries.

“She was taken to hospital unconscious after that evening fight but she succumbed to her injuries,” a senior police officer is quoted by Daily Nation as saying.

A day before her death (December 31, 2017),  the woman had posted a photo  on her Facebook page  and captioned it “Welcoming 2018 with  joy and happiness”.

After the incident, Dr Ogolla took to Facebook and wrote the following:  “To my friends on FB, what happened was too painful that I have been unable to believe and that’s why I didn’t update you, my lovely wife left me and went to the lord. It’s so hurting in as much as it is hard to express. Rip my love.”

“We spoke on 31st December. You were gone on 1st. But why is the world so evil! Why are people so heartless? And what is to become of your 6-week-old baby. Oh Bex Becky (her name on Facebook) rest with the angels. May justice be served,” a friend, Ruth Ambogo, wrote.

“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough.

“We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.

“To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you. Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers.

President Uhuru Kenyatta kicked off his France visit at Elysee Palace on Wednesday the 30th of September 2020, where his host Emmanuel Macron warmly welcomed him.

Shortly after 9 PM local time, Uuru inspected a guard of honor by the French Military marking the start of an elaborate state reception ceremony.

The two leaders then witnessed the signing of three bilateral agreements before they led their delegates to a State banquet.

Macron had held the celebration in honor of Uhuru as the visiting leader.

The two heads of state then retreated for private talks.

The two leaders reached a Private Public Partnership (PPP) for the Nairobi-Nakuru-Mau Summit Highway construction, signed between Vinci Concessions and KeNHA.

This Summit Highway is among the largest PPP projects in East Africa.

Kenya’s ambassador to France, Prof Judi Wakhungu, also explained that this highway would decongest the existing road.

She further noted that this highway is essential since it facilitates the transportation of goods to other countries.

“We hope that extending this highway, which is going to be about 200km, again, it will ease traffic on that particular very, very important route. I need not remind Kenyans that this is a major highway that connects Mombasa, Nairobi, and all the way to Uganda, Rwanda, and other parts of Central Africa,” Prof Wakhungu said.

The leaders also agreed on the commuter railway from the Nairobi CBD to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

According to Wakhungu, the railway will ease the movement of people in the city.

She also expressed her hope that businesses along the rail will boom.

“Our aspiration is to see that this commuter railway line eases traffic in Nairobi but also eases the movement of people within Nairobi. We hope that along the route and the surrounding areas, other businesses will be able to grow,” Prof Wakhungu said.

Uhuru and Macron also reached an agreement on the 400KV Menengai-Rongai electricity transmission line.
