Tragedy as Kenyan man in US accidentally kills 18-month-old Son while reversing his car

Published

A Kenyan family in Kansas is mourning the death of their 18-month-old son after the boy’s father accidentally killed him with a car on Monday.

Dan Mutuma, who works as a nurse in Kansas City, hit and crushed his son Mishael to death after the son walked unnoticed behind the vehicle as he reversed.

Mutuma had gone to a local college in the morning where he is studying but returned home to pick some documents that he had forgotten. After hurriedly picking the papers, he left the house leaving behind his wife Loise, who was looking after their young twins.

He got into the car and without realizing that his son Mishael had followed him from the house, he reversed the vehicle and crushed him.

“It is so painful to the entire family and especially to the father to have crushed his own son. There is no way he could have seen the kid who was playing behind. The child had run unnoticed behind the vehicle as the father was reversing… The mother-in-law was in the kitchen while the wife was tending to the other twin children. It was so painful, nobody could be blamed for it,” Mr Mutuma’s brother-in-law Ezra Kamencu Mingaine told Daily Nation.

Fox 4 News reported that local police in Olathe, Kansas had launched investigations into the incident but are unlikely to press any criminal charges against Mutuma as they consider it an accident.

“If the child were not his, it would have been a terrible case. I have started educating members of the public on the need to ensure they know where their children are while driving away,” Mr Mingaine said.

The child will be laid to rest in the US but the burial date has not yet been set. Plans are in place to have family members from Kenya travel to the US for the funeral.

Prayers are being held daily starting at 6pm at the Mutuma’s residence: 17633 W 159th Terrace, Olathe, KS 66062. A GoFundMe account to help with the burial and travel for family members from Kenya has been set up at gofundme.com/tragic-accident-mishael-mutuma

Raila leaves for Duke University in US, set to meet Kenyans in N Carolina

Published

BY BMJ MURIITHI

Former Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga left the country Saturday night for the United States. The plane carrying Mr Odinga is scheduled to land Sunday evening at Raleigh-Durham Airport in North Carolina.

He is scheduled to meet Kenyans in Raleigh, North Carolina, on Monday night and deliver a speech at Duke University in Durham on Tuesday.

Speaking to Kenya Satellite News Network by phone, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader said he would be in the US for a total of four days and would leave Raleigh on Wednesday as he has another engagement in Johannesburg, South Africa.

“I won’t be in US for long this time around,” he said.

On Friday, Captain (Rtd) George Njue, who is the Chairman of the organizing Committee for the Monday evening event, told this reporter that Kenyans in North Carolina were eagerly waiting for the opposition leader.

“He has respectively agreed to spend the evening with us and we look forward to his arrival. We will be receiving him at the airport on Sunday night,” said Capt Njue.

Last month, Mr Odinga’s trip to North Carolina was called off due to hurricane Florence.

“The postponement is due to the extreme weather conditions building up in the US state of North Carolina,” his spokesman Dennis Onyango said in a statement.

He had also been scheduled to give a lecture at Georgetown University in Washington DC.

On Saturday, Odinga left soon after attending the Mashujaa Day celebrations held at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega on a day that he was appointed Agfrican Uninion’s High Representative for Infrastructure Development.

According to Duke University, the theme of Mr Odinga’s speech, is;  “Africa: A Time for Sustained Optimism?”

The former Kenyan PM will be discussing ways in which the African Continent can continue striving to reach sustainable growth, among other things.

Mr Odinga will speak at 5:30pm at the Rubenstein Library Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly, Room 153.

Duke University is a private, non-profit, research university located in Durham, North Carolina. Founded by Methodists and Quakers in the present-day town of Trinity in 1838, the school moved to Durham in 1892.

This is Odinga’s first trip to US since the much publicized “Handshake” between him and his hitherto nemesis, President Uhuru Kenyatta.

US-based Kenyan man holds 3 Pre-weddings in quick succession, fiancée says wedding must go on

Published

on

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

A Kenyan woman in Seattle, Washington, who has been at the center of a heated online debate has come out to openly declare her total support for her fiancé, who is being accused of scamming Kenyans by holding three Pre-wedding fundraisers within a few months: two in Maryland and Massachusetts and an upcoming one in Washington State.

In an exclusive interview with Kenya Satellite News Network Thursday, Pastor Serah Ndirangu said she is ready to get married to the man and “those casting doubts on the event are mere detractors whose opinions don’t really matter.”

She said she is well aware of what happened between the previous fiancée  and the Reverend and added that the upcoming pre-wedding was her own idea.

“Why do people like poking their noses in other peoples’ affairs?” she wondered.

“We really don’t care what they are saying…this is our life and no one is being forced to contribute a penny,” she said.

Our  pre-wedding will take place on November 10th “come rain, come shine,” she added.

She was referring to those who have raised concern over the number of times the man in question has “fallen in love.”

The debate is about one Reverend Stanley Mwea who held two pre-wedding fundraisers in May this year, in Baltimore and Boston. The woman he intended to marry was Susan Kangethe, but as fate would have it, differences arose before they could tie the knot and the wedding was called off.

Soon after that, Rev Mwea then fell in love with another woman, Ms Serah Ndirangu, and the two planned a third pre-wedding, slated for November 10th this year.

This did not go down very well with some Kenyans in the Diaspora, many of whom took to social media to make their position on the matter known. Some of them said they feel “used” after having made monetary contributions to the previous fundraisers.

This comes at a time when Kenyans in different cities in the US have been complaining of rising instances where, after pre-weddings are held, the “love birds” vanish or relocate to different states, never to be seen again.

Now Pastor Serah Ndirangu says the wedding will take place in Seattle, Washington in early December. “The church elders and my fellow gospel musicians have encouraged me to go on with the arrangements and there is no looking back. God will fight on our behalf,” she adds.

However, some people, mostly Kenyans, were skeptical:

Here are some of the comments:
