A woman has been found guilty of murdering her husband, dismembering his body and dumping the body parts in a quarry at Machakos County.

Mary Njoki Ng’ang’a, 50, was on Thursday convicted of brutally executing her husband in cold-blood at Kangemi estate Nairobi by cutting up his body into small pieces then stuffing the body parts in a travelling bag.

The Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi was told how Njoki wrapped the parts with bed sheets which she dumped in a quarry at Lukenya in Athi River Machakos County three years ago.

Quarry workers would later discover the rotting body parts after noticing a strong stench and many flies swarming over it.

The workers notified the police about their discovery and when the bag was retrieved, the rotting body of a male adult was found inside.

REPORTED KIDNAPPING 

The court was also told how Ms Njoki had reported to the police the alleged kidnapping of the deceased by a three-man gang which she claimed attacked them at their Kangemi residence in Nairobi County on the night of December 14/15, 2015.

The accused also reportedly told her children that the attackers ambushed them inside their five bed-room house at Marenga, assaulted and left her for dead before kidnapping their father, James Ng’ang’a Ritho, who at the time was a 60-year-old petroleum dealer.

While convicting the accused, Lady Justice Stellah Mutuku dismissed her defense, terming it as a fabricated story to cover-up the accused’s heinous actions which ended the life of her husband of 30 years.”

“This court finds that state prosecutor Ms Mercel Ikol proved beyond reasonable doubt that you premeditated the killing of your husband. You are hereby convicted for the offence of murder contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the penal code,” Lady Justice Mutuku ruled.

In mitigation, Ms Njoki said she is remorseful and highly regrets her actions which resulted into her husband’s death.

Kimunya hits at Maraga over Parliament dissolution

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya has accused Chief Justice David Maraga of creating chaos in the country with his advisory to President Uhuru Kenyatta on dissolving the Parliament.

Kimunya said Maraga made advisory just a week after he appeared before a House committee that apparently annoyed him by insisting he should be prepared to leave office soon.

Speaking to K24 on Sunday, September 27, Kimunya said Maraga appeared before the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee on the September 14 and a week later, he issued the advisory “as an act of self-preservation”.

“This advisory was not done in good faith. It was an act of self-preservation,” he said.

The majority leader also added that the CJ was fully aware that the House had started the process of passing the law allowing for the representation of the marginalised groups including women.

He said there was a matter pending in court also linked to the law and said it was shady that Maraga did not wait for the court case to be determined but thought it was better the Parliament to be dissolved.

In his letter to the president, Maraga said the National Assembly and the Senate had failed to enact legislation required to implement the gender rule for nine years.

He said the dissolution of Parliament under Article 261(7) needed to be enforced to compel the political elite to fully adhere to the 2010 Constitution.

Ruto skips COVID-19 conference despite invitation

BY KEVIN KOECH

Deputy President William Ruto on Monday, September 28, failed to attend the Covid-19 conference hosted at the KICC.

The official programme indicated that Ruto was expected to speak after former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and welcome Uhuru to issue his speech.

Kanze Dena confirmed that Ruto was invited to the conference but was a no-show when it commenced at around 2 p.m.

Ruto’s Deputy Director of Communications Emmanuel Talam, however, raised questions about the Deputy President being invited to the conference.

However, Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa said the DP had a meeting planned with European Union delegates.

“He had a very important meeting which took longer than expected. It is not necessary that he has to attend the conference because he is the assistant to the President so when Uhuru is attending, he does not necessarily have to attend.

“He was meeting EU delegates in Karen to unlock the deadlock of global funds brought about by the Covid-19 millionaires Exposé so that the country can resume receiving the funding,” explained Barasa.

Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga on her side insisted that Ruto was not invited to the conference.

“When planning for COVID-19 response mechanisms they neither invited Ruto nor did they offer him a seat.

“After messing up and they need someone articulate they offered him a seat at the National Covid-19 conference. And you expected him to attend? NEVER!” she noted.
