A Form Four student has been killed just days before starting the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education.

By yesterday, officers from Kenyenya Police Station were still pursuing the killers of the Sengera SDA Secondary student. Emma Moraa, a sister to Elvinah, told The Standard at their home that on the fateful day they had supper together before Moracha retreated to her bedroom. Revision “I went to bed at around 11pm and left her still doing some revision. I woke up the following morning only to realise that my sister was not in the house,” said Moraa.

Alice Moracha, Elvinah’s mother, told The Standard they suspected her former boyfriend was behind the killing. “The boda boda operator, who was her former boyfriend, must have lured her to her death. They had differed some time back and this might have annoyed him,” she said. She urged police to thoroughly investigate the killing to ensure the family gets justice. “She was a lovely and joyful girl. The killers of my daughter shouldn’t be left to go scot-free,” she said.

Students and teachers at Sengera SDA mourned Moracha, with principal Enock Nyambega noting that Elvinah had not gone back to school for third term. “She had school fees arrears but we were yet to send her away. It is painful to lose a child but more agonising that her killers murdered her at a time she was set to sit her final examinations,” said Mr Nyambega.

Enough time Kenyenya OCPD Isaac Thuranira said they needed time to carry out investigations, but promised to ensure the suspects were arrested and charged. Mr Thuranira said nothing was stolen from the student. Kisii Woman Representative Janet Ong’era called for immediate arrest of suspects. “It doesn’t make sense that somebody decided to murder an innocent soul. Killing a woman in cold blood should be the last recourse that any sane individual should think of,” she said. According to Ms Ong’era, the country was losing young and promising Kenyans on excuse of love relationships turned sour.

Boy, 2, puzzles with his ‘natural’ reading ability

Published

on

Elias Muthomi has mastered words and the alphabet all by himself, apparently

When Elias Muthomi was barely one-and-a-half years old, his parents noticed something strange — he could read out English words on a wall chart. Moses Gitonga and Monica Wambui initially thought their son had simply memorised what he was saying after hearing adults speak, but each day was a surprise as he read more words accurately.

Today, at the age of two years and nine months, Elias has become something of a celebrity in his Ngumba Estate neighbourhod in Nairobi for his reading ability — yet he has never stepped into a classroom and has not gone through home schooling.

When Sunday Nation visited their home, it did not take long for Elias to start reading the writings on the video camera. “Soony,” he said cheerfully, referring to the Sony camera.

More “tests” follow as he easily read the writings on the charts and even those projected by his proud father on the television screen. His parents had bought the charts to prepare him to join pre-primary once he attained the age of three years, but every time they showed him new writings and images, he promptly read them without any help. Apart from the alphabet, Elias can read and pronounce the vowels chart and the names of animals.

“He likes watching news when most of his age mates like watching cartoons,” says his father, adding that Elias likes to read out the names of political leaders when their images appear on TV.

The dilemma his parents are facing is which school to take him to. They once sought advice from Elias’s paternal grandfather Stanley Ntiritu, a retired primary schoolteacher, who recommended further consultation with experts.

“People have advised me to take him to an international school where his potential can be exploited better but I do not have the money,” says the boy’s father. But his mother is concerned that Elias spends more time trying to read things while his age- mates are playing. She would like him to play more.

Just like at home, getting passport for Kenyans abroad is a tough task

Kenyans in diaspora note they are taking up to eight months to renew passport in an energy-sapping exercise

Like many Kenyans living abroad, Justin K Wangila in Tanzania was excited by the announcement in Nairobi in 2017 that the government would start issuing “new generation” passports.

“This was a dream come true because, for a long time, most of us Kenyans living in other countries, especially those in East Africa, had yearned for an East African Community passport … we were in a hurry to apply,” said Mr Wangila in an interview with the Sunday Nation. Mr Wangila was told the application process started online after one opened an account on the internet portal e-Citizen.

“That is where problems start. I wasn’t applying for a passport for the first time. I was renewing one. But this process makes you start from scratch because, like in my case, they had none of my records,” he said.

He needed several documents, such as his national identity (ID) number, his personal identification number (PIN) and his parents’ ID numbers.

“I got stuck because I did not have my late father’s ID. In its absence, the process required the number on the death certificate. My father died a long time ago and I wasn’t even sure a death certificate had been issued. I was forced to take some days off from work to travel home to try and find my father’s death certificate,” he added.
