VIDEO: What Maribe told police on Monica’s murder which she reported about at Citizen

Published

Television journalist Jacque Maribe presented herself to police yesterday in an attempt to clear her name in the ongoing probe into the murder of Monicah Nyawira Kimani. Ms Maribe, who was accompanied by her parents and lawyer Katwa Kigen, was interrogated for almost one hour at the Kilimani Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) offices before she was referred to the DCI headquarters on Kiambu Road.

Maribe told police she was in shock and had sought refuge at her parents’ house after learning that her fiancé, Joseph Kuria Irungu, was being linked to the September 19 murder of Ms Kimani. Kimani’s body was found in a bathtub in her Kilimani apartment, with her throat slit. Maribe told police she did not know Kimani, adding that she had even read the news of her death the night it happened. According to police, Maribe said Mr Irungu had not informed her of what had happened.

She also told police she had once seen Irungu with a gun in her house but had not seen it again after she warned him not to keep it in the house. Know if news is factual and true.

She added that Irungu often used her car and would drop her at work and pick her up. When police went to pick up Irungu from the couple’s Royal Park estate home in Lang’ata, the two were in the house. Police later searched the house and recovered a live bullet, which has since been taken for ballistic tests. Detectives also believe Irungu was in illegal possession of the pistol that Maribe saw, but are yet to trace it. Then there is the mystery of where Irungu lives away from Maribe’s house. The detectives also said they were yet to recover his identification documents, including his passport.

Kilimani murder suspect Maribe told police that on September 21, Irungu arrived at her house and said he had been shot and injured. She then drove him to different hospitals seeking medical attention. The journalist’s car, a silver Toyota Allion, was yesterday dusted for fingerprints by detectives from the homicide unit. The officers said they found bloodstains in the car as well as hoes, beer cans, a weave and clothes. The team also searched Kimani’s apartment in Lamuria Gardens off Dennis Pritt Road and carried away a number of samples for testing and analysis.

But the officers are yet to recover the clothes Irungu was wearing when he says he was shot in the chest. They have also not recovered the ‘kanzu’ he was wearing when he was spotted in Kimani’s apartment. After the alleged shooting, Maribe and Irungu told police they went to Nairobi West, Lang’ata and Kijabe Mission hospitals. But they also gave contradictory statements on the shooting – they initially said the attack happened in the house but later said it was outside.

It is not clear whether Maribe stuck to her initial story yesterday because she was still with detectives until late evening. Three men Irungu is said to have told police he had arrived at the estate at about 1.30am on September 21 in the company of Maribe when he spotted three men standing outside their gate. He entered the house but left to go and check why the strangers were hanging around.

Irungu told police that one of the men shot him in the left side of the chest before fleeing on a motorbike. They did not steal anything from him. He returned to the house and told Maribe what had happened. But police say preliminary findings show no shooting was reported at the scene. Guards and neighbours interviewed told police they did not hear a gunshot. Maribe also told police she did not hear any gunshots. Police are also waiting for a medical report to establish if Irungu’s injury was caused by a bullet.

City house help caught on CCTV beating up an infant

Published

on

Irene Nzisa,

A 31-year-old house help was caught on camera beating up a three-month-old while feeding her with a bottle of milk.

The house help, identified as Irene Nzisa, had been employed at a Mlolongo home a month and a half ago to be the caregiver of two children.

Her employer installed a nanny cam in the living room to help her keep tabs of what happens in the house in her absence.

SHOCK OF HER LIFE

On Monday, the employer got the shock of her life when she left the house to take her older daughter to the hospital. On checking the live feed from her nanny cam, she saw Nzisa beating up her infant daughter.

A footage of the incident, shared with Nairobi News, showed Nzisa feeding the young one and at some point places the bottle of milk on the table and starts beating up the infant on her hands and thighs.

After a while, she stopped feeding the baby and placed her on the baby nest while pointing at her in rage.

“I was in shock, we could not proceed to the hospital after I saw that video. I just went straight home and on my way I contacted my husband who came with the police,” the mother of two told Nairobi News.

Nzisa was arrested and locked up at Mlolongo police post for a night before she was released the following day.

“Her brother talked me out of pressing charges against his sister so I just withdrew the charges and she was released the following day.

‘HURT OTHER CHILDREN’

“I am however scared she may end up in someone’s house and hurt other children that is why I’m spreading the information,” said the mother of two.

The elder daughter, a three year old, had showed signs of disinterest in Nzisa.

The house help often complained that the elder girl was being troublesome.

“She kept complaining that my daughter was being troublesome but I never knew she would take it out on the three month old,” the mother told Nairobi News.

Nzisa has since been released from police custody after her brother pleaded with the mother of the child she assaulted.

Graduate becomes a guard at his former school – VIDEO

Published

on

A University of Eldoret graduate in Bachelor of Science (Statistics) has resorted to being a guard at his former secondary school after failing to secure a job in his area of study.

Ernest Maiki Abraham returned to RCEA Kuinet Secondary School, where he left in 2011 after scoring a B+ in his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations, to man the institution’s main entrance.

The graduate told KTN that he resorted to being a guard after his efforts to secure a white collar job proved fruitless.

“Sikutarajia kama naeza kuwa hapa hata siku moja, hata vile nimejaribu nikakosa nikasema ai wacha niishie tu kwenye nitaishia kwa sababu nimejaribu nikajaribu na nguvu zote sijafaulu,” he said.

Maiki has sent out job application letters to top employers including tech companies, multinational corporates and supermarkets.

“Inafika mahali unakata tamaa, kwanza nikiwa University of Eldoret vitu mingi ilifika mpaka inanikazia wakati wa graduation. Inafika mpaka unakata tamaa kwa sababu maisha imekuwa ngumu,” he added.

He relies on his meagre guard salary to take care of his living expenses and those of his younger siblings.

Published

Constable Hellen Kwamboka

A policewoman attached to Parliament was on Friday found dead in her house in Umoja estate.

Police say Constable Hellen Kwamboka failed to turn up for work on Friday and a decision to mount a search was made.

Detectives from Buruburu police station broke into her house only  to find her lying in a pool of blood with a deep cut on her head and blood stains all over the house.

The police say the deceased bore signs of strangulation on the neck.

“No murder weapon was recovered from the scene and it is believed that a boyfriend who visited her on Thursday had murdered her before escaping,” read a police report filed at Buruburu police station.

The scene was visited by the DCIO Buruburu and detectives.

Strangely, the police report stated that the door was locked from inside even as they insisted on the “boyfriend murder” narrative.

“The officers found the house locked from inside and suspected something was unusual. The house was broken into and the body of the officer found lying on her bed,” read the police report.

Constable Kwamboka’s phone is still missing and police suspect it was “stolen and switched off.”

Ms Kwamboka’s body has been taken to Chiromo mortuary as investigations into the matter kicked off.
