Kenyan man lynched for murdering lover and stuffing her body in briefcase

BY ALLAN TAWAI
A 47 year old man in Kisumu has been lynched by mob over suspicion of killing his supposed lover and attempting to dispose her body by stuffing it in a briefcase.

On Thursday, June 14, at around 4 am, area residents were reportedly awoken by a loud cry of help from the man’s house but before they could comprehend what was going on, the scream was drowned by the loud sound from the music. The two were said to have come back home from a nightclub in Kondele

A security guard manning the premises said the deceased, Mike Otieno, returned home in the company of the lady identified as Achieng’ (also deceased) at around 2 am but he noticed the two were not talking.

“They were not talking. They walked in, opened the door and put on loud music,” said Oluoch.

The watchman, who raised the alarm, got concerned when Otieno requested the gate be opened so that his friend could help him move some stuff from the house. He however said he noticed blood stains on the suspect’s shirt making him curious. When he checked, he said, he noticed blood dripping from a suitcase which was later discovered to be bearing pieces of the woman’s body. He then alerted the neighbours and the landlady who then notified the police.

Man who lost wife, children in Ethiopian plane crash to testify in US

Published

on

A man who lost his wife, three children and his mother-in-law in the ET302 Ethiopian Airline crash in March this year will today testify before the congress in the US.

Mr Paul Njoroge, 34, in an interview with US media said Boeing should scrap the plane and the top executives should resign and face criminal charges.

The distraught Kenyan said Boeing should have grounded the 737 Max planes after a previous deadly crash off the Indonesian Coast in October last year, but instead they kept allowing them in the sky.

USA Today reported that Mr Njoroge said if Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration had done their job properly, the planes would have been grounded in November last year.

“Today, I would be enjoying summer with my family, I would be playing football with my son,” the US news site quoted him.

Mr Njoroge will be the first relative of the crash victims to testify before the congress, over the crash that claimed the lives of 346 passengers when the two planes crashed in Indonesia and Bishoftu in Ethiopia.

DESIGN FLAWS

He had earlier said that the families of the passengers had several demands that they wanted met before the aircraft model is allowed to fly again, citing ‘irredeemable design flaws’

A Chicago aviation lawyer, Robert Clifford, is sueing Boeing on Mr Njoroge’s behalf over the deaths of his wife, Carol, his son and daughters, 6-year-old Ryan, 4-year-old Kelli and 9-month-old Rubi, and his mother-in-law.

The Max was grounded worldwide shortly after that crash and it’s not clear when it will be certified to fly again.

American Airlines and United Airlines earlier this month both said they will keep the Boeing 737 Max plane off their schedule until November 3, leading to flight cancellations.

Mr Njoroge’s mother in law Anne Wangui Karanja, his wife and three children perished as they were coming home from Canada to introduce the youngest member of the family to Anne’s husband, Quindos Karanja in Kwa Amos village, Kabatini, in Bahati, Nakuru County.

Anne had been living in Canada for five months, where she had gone to help her daughter, after giving birth and had two other young children to take care of.

Body positivity: Kenyan celebrities who ignored body-shamers

Published

on

A number of celebrities have come forth preaching body positivity as they encourage women to love and embrace their bodies no matter what society thinks of them.

However, the internet is crawling with body-shamers who, like hyenas that have caught the scent of blood, are out to put down anyone whose body they deem unfit.

In a video shared her Instagram, media personality Lynda Nyangweso opened up about being body shamed. “Somebody called me whale,” she said in the video. “The meanest comment I ever got was that I didn’t deserve to have a child because of how I looked.

“When I was young, I would never eat in public. People would stare at me when I ate that I started eating in the toilet,” she confessed, her voice shaking as she recalled those hurtful moments.

The shaming got so bad that Lynda even contemplated suicide: “The only reason I didn’t go through with the suicide was because I worried that my mum wouldn’t find a coffin that fit me.”

Like Lynda, some celebrities have not let this cyber-bullying get to them. They are unashamed to wear what they like, take photos and even share them on social media all in an effort to put the shamers to shame.

“My sadness is for other girls who have to go through this,” Lynda says.

“If I was to meet a bully I would show kindness. Stop following people who make you feel bad about yourself. Protect your peace,” she concludes.
