Upon learning that President Uhuru Kenyatta had travelled to La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada, where he will attend the G7 Summit, some Kenyans took to social media to plead with him to give embattled lawyer Miguna Miguna an air ride back home.

Miguna, who is currently based in Ontario, Canada, has been deported twice over a row with the Immigration Department on his citizenship status.

James Odhiambo wrote on Twitter: “Tafadhali mhurumie ndugu Miguna. Mpatie lift arudi kwao.”

John Kaimenyi wrote on Facebook: “God works in mysterious ways…Miguna had asked the gvt to buy him a ticket lakini sasa watarudi na Prezo.”

Cate Ndegwa tweeted: “In the spirit of handshake, take your brother home with you. Na wewe Miguna u-behave kuanzia leo.”

In the past, the Kenyan government has maintained that Miguna is not a Kenyan citizen but the controversial lawyer has has insisted that he never lost nor renounced his Kenyan citizenship despite incessant such claims from varied quarters.

The opposition activist, in an interview with a local television station, maintained that he was forced into exile in 1987, and his then passport confiscated.

President Kenyatta’s visit to Canada to attend this year’s G7 Summit follows Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s invitation when the two leaders met in April at Lancaster House, London, on the margins of the Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) meeting in the United Kingdom capital.

This is the second G7 summit that the Kenyan leader will be addressing.

Last year, Kenyatta was among the African leaders invited to the G7 summit, which took place at Taormina on the Italian Island of Sicily.

This year’s G7 Summit in Quebec, which will take place on Friday and Saturday, will focus on economic growth, climate change and security.

Kenyatta will address the summit on issues of the blue economy and the environmental management.

Kenya is among the first African countries to effect the ban on plastics.

The G7 nations include, Canada, United States of America, United Kingdom, German, France, Italy and Japan.

Speaking ahead of the summit, Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Cabinet Secretary, Monica Juma said the G7 Summit is crucial to Kenya, as it will focus on the issues that are critical to President Kenyatta’s ‘Big Four’ agenda.

She said the Summit, which is one of the exclusive meetings of the global leaders, would among things discuss gender inequality, equity, climate change, security and the blue economy.

The CS pointed out that the Summit will discuss on how to bridge the inequality gap by looking for innovative ways of ensuring women participate more on productive activities.

“For a long time, work policies have never really been favourable to women. Whether it is young mothers, whether it is women that need to train, it has been the question of balancing between work and family life,” said CS Juma.

She said the Summit will seek to come up with innovative technology to involve more women as they are more than half the population of the world.

“Gender equity has been a matter of campaign for a long time and we all know this is a fundamental issue of human right, the involvement of women to participate in society’s activities. It is also a matter that makes economic sense because women are more than half of the world’s population,” she said.

Adding: It is important that we include half of the population in productive activities. So the whole issue of gender equality is the primary agenda of the Canadian Government as the chair of the summit.”

CS Juma pointed out that peace and security are also key to President Kenyatta, and the Summit would delve on them because no meaningful development would take place without a secure environment.

“The matter of peace and security has been key, particularly in view of the new threats. Threats about terrorism, radicalization and transnational crimes – whether it is drugs, or human trafficking,” said the Foreign Affairs CS.

Apart from attending the G7 Summit, President Kenyatta will also hold talks with the Canadian Prime Minister.

Ambassador Juma said Kenya and Canada will be co-hosting the Blue Economy Conference to be held in Mombasa in November this year and the two leaders will consult widely on the same.

She also said President Kenyatta will be talking on the environmental management as Kenya is a global leader, having been among the first African countries in the world to do a plastic ban.

VIDEO: Mystery as Kenyan woman found dead in a car on the highway with rope around her neck

Published

on

After reports Sunday morning of a car stopped on the left side of southbound Loop 101 in Phoenix, Arizona, a Kenyan woman was found unresponsive in the car with a rope around her neck and later pronounced dead, the Department of Public Safety said.

The woman was identified as 29-year-old Stella W. Kiarie. She was an employee of the Arizona Department of Health Services where she worked with refugees.

Officials said Monday that after seeing there was a car seat in the woman’s car, detectives went to her house because they were concerned about the whereabouts of the child. Detectives found a 1-year-old baby boy alone at the house.

The Arizona Department of Child Safety responded and took over care for the child.

DHS also released a statement Monday confirming Kiarie’s death:

All of Stella’s colleagues at Arizona Department of Health Services were saddened by this news and this devastating loss. Stella was a kind, compassionate and important member of this team. Our deepest condolences are with her family and friends at this difficult time.

DPS says the HOV and two other lanes were closed four hours as the scene was under investigation.

No other details were released about the woman’s death. It is uncertain if it is being investigated as a suicide or homicide.

The incident remains under investigation.

101 and Bell Rd

Upon arrival, troopers found a white vehicle crashed against the concrete median wall. The car had some damage to its passenger side.

Troopers determined that it had been traveling southbound on the highway when it crashed.

They then entered the car through an unlocked door and found an unconscious female in the driver’s seat, later determined to be Kiarie.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kiarie was found with injuries that “were not consistent” with the minor crash with the median wall.

The Associated Press reported Sunday that troopers at the scene reported finding the woman “with a rope around her neck.”

A child safety seat was found in the vehicle, so detectives went to Kiarie’s home and found a 1-year-old boy by himself. He was taken into custody by the Arizona Department of Child Safety.

There has always been debate over the issue of men leaving women they started from the bottom with.

It is a sensitive area and women often accuse men of deeming them worthless after they start making good money.Men have always maintained that this is not the case and it is down to character.
