She is accused of committing the offence on September 18 at Gichobo area in Njoro sub County.

LEFT FOR WORK

According to the prosecution, the child’s mother had left the infant under the care of Ms Njeri who is her neighbour and she went to work.

However, the complainant was not aware that Ms Njeri was HIV positive and never thought that she might harm her child.

Ms Njeri is said to have taken the step when the baby started crying and efforts to calm it bore no fruits.

Ms Njeri was found by neighbours who knew her status. She was arrested and taken to Njoro Police Station.

The case was slated for mention on October 2 for bond terms.

Google is celebrating Mekatilili wa Menza, with a doodle of the Kenyan freedom fighter made visible on its search engine platform on Sunday.

Known for inspiring the Giriama people to resist colonial rule, circa 1900, Mekatilili wa Menza is revered as one of the nation’s first Mau Mau fighters.

“The recognition of Mekatilili Menza by Google goes along way in reinforcing what we believe in as Kenya National Heroes Council and a country.

“We believe our Heroes deserve better. They have played their part in nation building. We must affirm them at all times so that we can inculcate the culture of Heroism; the culture of service.

“We shall ensure more of our female heroines are unearthed, highlighted and feted. Other than giving birth to many celebrated our women were at the fore front of our liberation, our struggles and our future remains solely in their hands.

“That is the spirit of the Kenya National Heroes Act,2014 and what we stand for as a Council,” said Amb. Yvonne Khamati-Yahaya, the CEO of the Kenya National Heroes Council.

Mekatilili wa Menza led the Giriama people in the early 20th century and is commemorated during the festivities of the traditional Malindi Cultural Festival, an annual celebration of local history and pride.

She was born in Matsara wa Tsatsu during the mid-19th century.

By the early 20th century, British colonial rule had threatened the sovereignty and freedom of the Giriama people with forced labor and taxation.

At a time when women’s power was limited within her society, Menza was compelled to organize her people against colonial control.

The Google Doodle artwork features a depiction of Menza leading the energetic kifudu dance that called so many to action.

The artist behind the Google doodle is Wanjira Kinyua who is based in Nairobi
