Form Two student kills colleague at school

Published

on

A student at Lugusi Boys Secondary School in Kakamega County stabbed his colleague to death in a vicious attack which disrupted learning at the school on Wednesday.

The two students had engaged in an argument which ended in a nasty scuffle in class before they were asked to go the staff room by a teacher to face disciplinary action.

The attacker is reported to have sneaked to the staff room armed with a knife and lunged at his colleague inflicting a deep cut on the left shoulder.

Teachers who rushed to the staff room after they heard screams found the injured student sprawled on the floor and bleeding profusely.

There were no teachers in the room when the Form Two student attacked his colleague.
The attacker was handed over to police in Malava and the murder weapon recovered at the scene.

The student succumbed to his injuries as teachers were administering first aid and making arrangements to rush him to the nearest hospital, Malava Sub-County Hospital which is located 10 kilometres away.

A sombre mood engulfed the school after principal Charles Kokonya announced the death of the student. He described the students as hardworking and a talented rugby player.

He said teachers had decided to appoint him as the entertainment prefect because of his good conduct and leadership skills.

“What has happened is quite unusual and unfortunate. This is what happens when we are unable to manage our anger,” said Mr Kokonya who was accompanied by Kakamega North Sub-County Education Director Anne Shiundu.

He said students in Form One to Three would be allowed to travel home until Monday as the incident is investigated.

New Zealand Speaker babysits MP’s child during parliament debate

Published

on

The speaker of New Zealand’s parliament has cradled a lawmaker’s baby while he presided over a debate in the House of Representatives.

Trevor Mallard tweeted a photo of himself feeding MP Tāmati Coffey’s baby boy in the speaker’s seat.

Mr Coffey, Labour MP for Waiariki, announced the birth of his son, Tūtānekai Smith-Coffey, in July.

The baby was born via a surrogate mother and is the biological son of Mr Coffey’s partner, Tim Smith.

In a tweet about the baby’s birth, Mr Coffey said he and his partner were “overwhelmed at the miracle of life” and the surrogate mother – a friend of Mr Smith – was “doing awesome”.

On Wednesday, Mr Coffey attended a parliamentary debate with his baby for the first time after returning from paternity leave.

BABYSITTER

During the session, father-of-three Mr Mallard took on the role of babysitter as well as speaker.

A picture of Mr Coffey holding up the baby in parliament was shared by Green Party MP Gareth Hughes on Twitter.

“Lovely to have a baby in the House, and what a beautiful one @tamaticoffey,” Mr Hughes wrote in the tweet.

Speaking to Newshub, Mr Coffey said he felt “really supported by my colleagues from across the House”.

Mr Coffey is the latest MP to bring his baby to parliament, following the example of politicians across the world.

Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson, who attended a debate with her baby in 2018, and Australian Senator Larissa Waters, who breastfed in parliament in 2017, are among the legislators to make headlines.

And in September last year, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made history by bringing her baby along to her debut speech at the UN in New York.

Trump says he is seriously looking at ending birthright citizenship

Published

BY BMJ MURIITHI

U.S. President Donald Trump has rekindled debate over the pros and cons of right to citizenship by birth. On Wednesday, he said his administration is seriously looking at ending the right of citizenship for U.S.-born children of non-citizens.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House, Trump also said he intends to end the right of citizenship to people who illegally  immigrated to the United States

“We’re looking at that very seriously, birthright citizenship, where you have a baby on our land, you walk over the border, have a baby – congratulations, the baby is now a U.S. citizen. … It’s frankly ridiculous,” he said.

This is not the first time Trump is expressing his displeasure with the the 14th amendment which made it easier for people from other countries to easily assimilate into the system. In 2018,  he he  told Axios news website that he would end “birthright citizenship” through an executive order.

Experts have however said such a move would run afoul of the U.S. Constitution.

The Constitution’s 14th Amendment, which was passed after the US Civil War with the aim of ensuring that black Americans had full citizenship rights, granted citizenship to “all persons born or naturalized in the United States.”

To date, that amendment has been used to grant citizenship to millions of people born in the United States, whether or not their parents are American citizens or legally in the country.
