Jowie and Jacque: Mjengo man’s ID in Monica Kimani’s murder

Published

on

The national Identity Card murder suspect Jowie Irungu used to gain access to Monica Kimani’s apartment had been reported missing two days earlier.

The ID card belongs to Dominic Bisela, a casual worker at a construction site within Royal Park apartments where Jowie and his television journalist girlfriend, Jacque Maribe, live in Lang’ata estate, Nairobi.

The ID card went missing on September 17, two days before Monica was found with her throat slit at her Lamuria Gardens pad off Dennis Pritt Road, Nairobi.

Police are still holding Jowie as the prime suspect in the murder and Maribe as an “accessory to the murder” of Monica Kimani.

Police say Jowie was the last person to leave Monica’s house while Maribe was detained alongside their neighbour Brian Kassaine.

Detectives questioned the two over circumstances surrounding gunshot wounds Jowie sustained and Maribe was later arrested for giving contradicting information regarding the shooting incident.

Kassaine was held for handing over his pistol to Jowie.

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti told The Nairobian that Bisela’s ID card was reported missing from the sentry box where other identification cards were left by construction workers.

Kinoti explained that Bisela, “did not find his ID in the evening after completing duty at the construction site. He informed the guard to be on the lookout for the card just in case it had been misplaced from the rest of the IDs.”

How world’s best tutor plans to spend Sh100m prize

Published

on

As a testament of his generosity that helped him bag Sh100 million in a global competition, Peter Tabichi has included his school, the local community and needy students in his grand plans of using his new-found windfall.

Mr Tabichi wants to build a computer laboratory at his school, Keriko Day Secondary School.

The school, in remote parts of Lare, in Njoro, Nakuru County, has been thrust into the world stage after his win in the Global Teacher Award.Also in his plan is an agricultural project to benefit the community, sponsor bright and needy students as well as programmes to motivate fellow teachers.

The teacher, a devout follower of the Catholic Church’s Franciscan Brotherhood, whose main focus is to empower the rural poor through education, sustainable agriculture and peace building, is staying true to his religious course; that of a simple lifestyle and using talents and gifts to make the world a better world, despite his recent stardom.

His permanent smile almost makes it unbelievable that he’s an outstanding maths and physics teacher, subjects that sound far much tougher for his mien.His talks, too, are always brief and straight to the point with words carefully and cautiously selected before being rolled out, again, slowly and cautiously.Tabichi is currently trending globally after bagging the Global Teacher Award on Sunday evening to the surprise of many.
“It was almost unbelievable; it almost sounded like a dream when my name was called out as the winner. It was then that we stared at each other in awe as we let it sink in. It is all God’s doings,” said Tabichi.

His passion for teaching, however, remains unrivaled, just as he loves his religion as punctuated by his ceremonial flowing Brotherhood gown he wears while attending church.

“He is a church guy. Great mentor and a staunch believer,” Dennis Mainge, one of his students aptly described him.Tabichi, not only broke history as the first African teacher to bag the much-converted award but also broke the record as the first-ever male teacher to win the Sh100 million award.
