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

Published

on

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

Two Kenyan Men in US Charged with Sexually Assaulting a Mentally Challenged Woman

Published

on

Two Kenyan men in Minnesota face felony charges after police say they sexually assaulted a woman with mental and physical impairments at the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in March.

Francis Ndegwa Kamau, 39, of Spring Lake Park was arrested in Minneapolis and booked in the Scott County Jail on Aug. 8 in connection with third-degree felony criminal sexual conduct. Kamau’s arrest came three months after the county attorney filed charges against Kamau and Kenneth Wagacha Kibe, 37, of Burnsville.

According to Prior Lake Police and court records, the warrant for Kibe has not yet been served, and he has not been arrested.

Both men are charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct for sexual penetration of a person who “is mentally impaired, mentally incapacitated, or physically helpless.” Each charge carries with it a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, a fine of $30,000 or both.

The county’s criminal complaint states officers found multiple videos of the alleged assault and a text conversation about the victim on the men’s phones.

According to the warrants, police received the report of sexual assault at 10:22 p.m. on March 30. Staff at the casino told officers that a woman had approached casino security to report that she had been assaulted.

The woman has been diagnosed with “mild intellectual disabilities, unspecified congenital anomaly of musculoskeletal system (right hand), seizure disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and depression,” and lives at a group home for people with cognitive and physical disabilities, according to the warrants.

The warrants allege that on the afternoon of March 30, Kamau and Kibe approached the woman while she waited at the casino buffet. The three chatted for a while before casino surveillance video shows them entering a hotel room for more than an hour.

The woman told police that when the group entered the hotel room, both men tried to have sex with her several times even though she told them to stop. During a sexual assault exam at St. Francis Medical Center the woman told a nurse that Kamau had told her he wanted to “give [you] a baby.”

Both Kamau and Kibe were at the casino when police arrived on the scene. During Kibe’s interview with officers, he said he had recorded a portion of the assault without Kamau’s knowledge.

Kamau initially denied being involved in the assault. When officers told him that Kibe had a video of him on top of the woman, he reversed course and said that she was “enticing them” and that they were not “too serious having sex,” police said.

Both men told police that they noticed the woman had a limp but did not realize that she had any cognitive disabilities.

Officers found and photographed “blood or other bodily fluid” and a condom wrapper on the bed sheets of the room.

In documents filed Aug. 9, Kamau said he had hired an attorney to represent him, though no attorney was listed on his case file at press time. His first court appearance is set for Oct. 21.
