Anglican priest ‘busted’ at city lodging with married woman dies

Published

on

Anglican priest, Reverend Elijah Githinji, fell prey to a similar gang that allegedly blackmailed Kirinyaga Deputy Governor Peter Ndambiri in 2014 and later died in India after suffering a sudden ailment said to have been triggered by the dehumanising ordeal that left hima at the mercy of his followers.

He was buried at his rural Kabaro home, Ndia, Kirinyaga West Sub-county the same Monday Ndambiri identified the third suspect.

Ndambiri who arrived at the burial after 6pm told mourners that he was late for Githinji’s funeral as he was held up at a police identification parade in Nairobi.

“Although our brother has left without justice having been served, those who set him up will certainly be punished since we believe they were the same ones who subjected me to the dehumanising condition after falling into their trap,” he said.

Mourners at Githinji’s funeral recalled how the gang allegedly busted him from a lodging in Nairobi where he was a priest with a married woman leading to a thorough beating from the ‘husband,’ but Githinji maintained his innocence until his death.

Patient stranded at JKIA after being ejected from plane

Published

on

A patient scheduled to travel to India for specialised treatment has been left stranded at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) after she was ejected from the plane.

Wangari Ndumia, 25, was whisked out of an Etihad flight EY 642 together with her sister after differences emerged on her fitness to fly.

While her sister, Ann Ndumia insisted that she was in a stable condition to board the plane that was making a stop in Abu Dhabi before connecting to Delhi, India, the officials of the airline claimed she was not fit.

This is despite the two having boarded the plane, already seated and was just waiting for the flight attendants to allocate her sister a favorable seat with enough leg room.

However, as soon as all the passengers had boarded, a call was made and what followed was the security officers directing them to leave the plane.

Ann said this was the second time they were being denied a chance to travel. The first time was on Tuesday where Air Arabia also did not allow them to check in.“And they (Air Arabia) refused to refund us the cash we paid a total of Sh116,870,” said Ann, almost breaking down.

According to an email seen by The Standard addressed to a local booking agent, Prudential Travels the airline laid blame on the agent.“For all medical reasons travel you ought not to issue tickets before medical clearance with a fit to fly remark,” read the email in part from Air Arabia.

It added: “Kindly note your ticket was within 24 hours we cannot cancel, only airport taxes can be reversed and credit note issued under the same passenger names. No cash fund is given on Air Arabia. You may cancel the inbound flight.”After this mail, Ann said she was forced to go back to the same agent to try a secure another flight, which she said, she was instructed to add Sh50,000 more.

She only had Sh25,000 and so  reached an agreement that she will pay the rest once she is back from India.This is when the agent booked another flight with Etihad that was scheduled to depart on Sunday 2:15pm via Abu Dhabi before connecting to Delhi.

This time round, the agent had all the papers right including a medical certificate signed by Dr Diane Mclvor of Etihad.On the flight ticket too it was indicated that she was a medical case described as ‘wheelchair all the way seat-confirmed.’

But as soon as the plane was already boarded, Ann and her ailing sister, whose right leg is being held together with screws due to massive loss of bones, were instructed to leave the flight.

An exchange ensued between the Etihad officials and the family who wanted answers on why they could not be allowed to travel.

“We called Medilink, which is the global agent on medical issues for all airlines based in Singapore and they said she was not fit to travel,” said the Etihad official in charge, who also claimed that Wangari was screaming in pain when she was being assisted to board.“But she is sick. What did they expect her to do?” posed Ann.

9 held over rape of Maseno students

Published

on

Detectives have arrested nine suspects accused of criminal acts against Maseno University students.

The nine are alleged to be members of a gang that has frequently been robbing with violence and gang raping students off campus in Kisumu County.

“Stolen chairs, bhang, pangas and claw bars (were) confiscated. Other suspects escaped but are being pursued by detectives,” the Directorate of Criminal Investigations said in a statement.

Students at the university have been protesting about insecurity for many years with little results.

Crimes against students in other public universities have become commonplace, with several injured or killed in attacks off campus where they usually live in private hostels.

The suspects, who the DCI said were arrested on Sunday after a tip-off are: Mr Patrick Okanda, Mr Peter Amango Sande, Mr Geoffrey Okiya Mutunga, Mr Obed Panyako, Mr Peter Obed, Mr David Ndegu, Mr Samuel Kuya, Mr Stephen Oloo and Mr Nahashon Arena.

The suspects are awaiting arraignment.

Revealed: What killed Hinga

Published

on

Former destitute drug addict Patrick Hinga, whose rescue and transformation by a former schoolmate became an internet sensation, succumbed to stomach complications.

Quoting Hinga’s mother, Ms Wanja Mwaura, a childhood friend who helped him climb out of the drug abuse abyss, on Monday said he died in hospital.

“According to the mother, Hinga was doing fine and he did his best to remain the man we all helped him to be,” Ms Mwaura posted on Facebook, where she uses the name Faith Nganga.

She said the stomach illness started on Thursday, March 14.

“Hinga left home and went to visit his friends in Kayole, upon reaching there he called his mom and complained of a stomach ache though not serious, he spent the night there and said he will be ok,” she posted.

“On Saturday late night the problem persisted n that’s when he decided to go to the hospital but by the time the mother got to him early morning yesterday (Sunday), he had already passed on.”

She appealed to Kenyans to help the family accord their son a dignified send-off.

“I feel confused n lost and I don’t know what to say or think or even where to start… I need you more than ever before for this one last time.”

Hinga’s recovery became an internet hit after it was captured and shared step by step on social media by Ms Mwaura.

Born on September 15, 1983, he attended Ndararua Primary School in Kabete and sat his KCPE exams in 1998 where he scored 447 marks out of 700.

He was admitted to Uthiru High School, then a provincial school, in 1999.

Hinga’s involvement with drugs started when he was in Standard Eight when his friends introduced him to the lifestyle.

“It all began with cigarettes,” he says.

“Before we knew it, we were smoking bhang. I gave in to drugs because of peer pressure,” he told the Nation in an earlier interview.

Hinga and his friends would sneak to the toilets to smoke cigarettes and bhang.

When his teachers discovered that Hinga was doing drugs, he was immediately expelled. He was in Form Two.

This was the beginning of a downward spiral towards the path of self-ruin that would see him hit the streets.

After being expelled from Uthiru, he was enrolled at Elite High School in Kayole where he dropped out due to drug use.
