Members of the  Kenyan community in Atlanta are in utter shock after one of their own, Margaret Nganga, was found dead in her car a day after she left home for work. Ms Nganga’s body was discovered on Tuesday in the parking garage of Northside Hospital where she worked.

Police are investigating the circumstances that led to her death. According to her family,  she was in good health (as far as they could tell) and in high spirits on the day she passed away.

On Tuesday night, her husband, Daniel Kimani, wrote the following on his social media platforms: “Its with deep sorrow that I inform you of the regrettable passing on of my dear wife Margaret. I seek for your Prayers of provision and Comfort.”

He later confirmed to KSN that indeed Margaret’s body was found in her car a day after she left her home.

“She left for a meeting in the work place yesterday (Monday) morning but she didn’t even attend the meeting as she was found dead today (Tuesday) in the same spot where she had parked her car,” said Mr Kimani.

Many who knew her took to social media to express shock and disbelief.

Snn Ngash wrote: “With the death of your loving wife the days ahead may seem bleak and dark and my prayer is that God will shine His light and guide you through each and every one of them. Please accept my sincere condolences.”

James Kanya wrote: “My heart goes out to you and your dear family. May God give us comfort and Peace as we deal with this. Pole sana.”

Paul Mucheru Mugi wondered: “What could have happened? Soo sad to hear that. May The God of all comforts, comfort your entire family as you go through these hard times. My sincere condolences.”

Many of her friends told of how they spent the day together at the Kenyan American Community Church on Sunday where she was well and in “very high spirits.”

Margaret’s death comes at a time when the bodies of three other Kenyans (2 women and one man) lie at West Cobb Funeral home in Marietta, GA., after they passed away in a span of the last few weeks. Timothy Majanja, a homeless Kenyan who died at Grady Memorial Hospital, will be buried in Kakamega on Saturday. His body arrives in Nairobi on Thursday.

“The community is really hurting right now,” said Jack Musau, a resident of Marietta, Georgia.

Margaret lived in Acworth, Georgia and leaves behind four children.

SAD: Former Kenyan Powerful Minister’s son who was deported from US after being jailed for 30 years now living in squalor [VIDEO]

Published

on

They say looks may be deceiving, well Peter Oloo Aringo may look like that ordinary man with limited means. When The Standard team got to his home, he’ was going about with his activities.

Aringo is the first born son of former Alego Member of Parliament and minister for education Peter Oloo Aringo and a Jamaican mother. He attended the prestigious Consolata Primary School in Nairobi and St. Marys Yala where he had begun drinking and later proceeded to the United States where he pursued a business administration course at Lona College.

While in the US, Aringo opines life was good, on the first lane. His drinking habits right back from high school in Kenya however grew not only as a consumer but now as a peddler which endeared him to his peers but little did he know he was on the radar of the New York Federal government authorities.“I became a dealer.

I decided if I want to make more and use more, I needed to get into the business. And that’s where my downward spiral began,” Aringo narrated to this reporter. Being an alien and on the left side of the law, he was a marked man.

Former Cabinet Minister Peter Oloo Aringo.

Authorities finally pounced on him. He was arraigned and sentenced to 30 years in jail but he was too lucky to be given an option of deportation which he opted for. As it is the norm, a deportee, he came back home empty-handed without even his travel documents, his wife and three children. “I had no money. I had nothing,” he added.

Back home his appetite for alcohol and drugs only increased but he could only access and afforded cheap liquor which eventually caused him throat cancer. His wife Catherine Boyane, also a reformed drug addict with whom they got married in May this year narrated how it all began.“The day we started noticing a swelling on his neck, we thought it was a sore throat. We never thought it would be cancer,” she said.

Throughout the interview, Aringo kept sipping tea or water as there is totally no saliva in his mouth.The man who grew up in opulence has only a wall clock with his father’s name permanently inscribed on it triggering nostalgic memories.The couple is now quietly living at the heart of a posh estate in Nakuru but in a shanty sandwiched between high-end houses.

VIDEO: Lauren urgently needs help , seeks a kidney from someone who is either ‘A’ or ‘O’ type blood

Published

on

Lauren Fulford of Atlanta, Georgia, has been battling kidney failure for over 7 years and she’s running out of time! The situation is dire and only a transplant in the immediate future will save her life!

To learn more about the living donor process or to start testing, please contact Leanne Whitehead, RN, the Living Donor Coordinator at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta and reference Lauren Fulford. Leanne’s number is 404.605.4605. Lauren can receive a kidney from a donor with
A or O blood type.

Here the story as told herself.

MY STORY: ROUND 1

When I was 15 (1994), I was diagnosed with end stage-kidney failure due to immune-complex glomerulonephritis (in other words, my immune system attacked my kidneys and doctors were unable to determine why). Both kidneys I was born with had zero function at that point. Consequently, I was put on dialysis within four months of finding out I was sick.  I was fortunate enough to get a kidney transplant from my father at age 16.  Dad’s kidney got me through high school, college, and most of graduate school.

Watch the video below:

 

MY STORY: ROUND 2

Nine years after the transplant (at age 25), I learned that my body was rejecting the transplanted kidney.  Turns out that my anti-rejection medications were toxic to the kidney over time, and doctors should have switched me to newer medications…but didn’t.  I was once again back on dialysis.  Again, through the support of my wonderful family, I received a second transplant from my younger sister (my brother and other sister were tested but were not matches).  This time, I had multiple complications with the surgery and subsequent rejection episodes for the first six months.

Ultimately, my body accepted the kidney.

MY STORY: ROUND 3

Fast forward six years to 2010…I consistently was not feeling well.  I was very anemic, always tired, and thought I had along-lasting case of the flu.  After months of blood work and tests, I found out that I was yet again in the early stages of kidney failure and began dialysis for a third time.  My doctor informed me that a trend was recently discovered, indicating that transplant recipients who have received two kidneys from immediate family members were rejecting the second transplant after five to seven years (it was previously expected to last ten plus years).  In addition, when I was having surgery to remove an ovarian cyst, the doctor accidentally nicked the transplanted kidney, causing it to go into shock and it never fully recovered.  In 2012, the kidney was dead and had to be removed since it was making me sick.

WHAT’S GOING ON TODAY:

I am now 39 years old.  I have been on dialysis for over seven years and it has many challenging effects.  I have been told that I am “highly sensitized” (I have high antibody counts) due to having two previous transplants.

My doctors told me that I have less than a 10% chance of finding a kidney.  To prove them wrong, my friends and family started the testing process but no match has been found.  I’m hopeful that someone out there will be a match but time is running out.

SPREAD THE WORD

Tell your friends and family and neighbors and Facebook friends and literally anyone you can think of about Lauren’s story – the more people that know, the more of a chance she has to find a donor and STAY ALIVE!

VIDEO: Kenyan man in US charged with sex trafficking and having carnal knowledge of a minor

Published

on

A 45 year old Kenyan man from Fort Worth, Texas, is facing charges of trafficking a child. Meshack Ominde was arrested and has since bonded out of jail.

According to court documents released Tuesday and seen by ksnmedia.com, Ominde was driving around a Fort Worth neighborhood last month when he saw two 14-year-old girls who told him they had been kicked out of their homes by their parents.

Police say he gave them each $20, bought them food at Whataburger eatery and paid for a hotel room on East Loop 820 in Fort Worth.

However, Ominde told the investigators that he went to the girls’ hotel room on Oct. 8, drove one of them for doughnuts and touched the girl’s breast, but he never had sex with her, according to an arrest warrant.

The 14-year-old girl told Fort Worth police Ominde took her to his office where he had sex with her and asked to take pictures of her breasts, according to the warrant obtained by the local media.

 

 

The warrant written by Detective V. Coronado gave this brief account of the incident:

On Oct. 7, the two 14-year-old girls were walking together on an unknown Fort Worth street. The two ran away from home the previous weekend.

A man approached them and offered to get them a hotel room and food. That man was later identified as Meshack Ominde.

 

One of the girls said he took them to Goodwill to buy clothes and to a hotel near a highway.

On Oct. 8, Ominde came to their rooms, where he performed a sex act on one of the girls while she was under the bed covers. He then took that girl and told her they were going to get doughnuts and food. He asked her if the girls wanted to have a threesome and she said no.

Ominde told the girl she would need to have sex with him in exchange for the hotel room, according to the warrant. The girl said they had sex at his office. He then returned her to the hotel room and left.

Later on Oct. 8, Fort Worth police responded to two runaway girls at the Economy Inn, 5420 E. Loop 820, in Fort Worth. Initially, officials with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services had found them in the hotel room.

The girls later told detectives about the sexual abuse, according to the warrant.

Ominde was freed after he posted $100,000 bail on Monday.
