Mungatana: How I lost my millions to fake investors

Published

on

Former MP Danson Mungatana admitted yesterday he was conned out of a ‘large’ sum in a fake investment oil scheme operating in an undisclosed place.

He was responding to widespread media reports last week that he lost Sh76 million to conmen.

“About eight years ago, I lost a lot of money in a fake investment oil scheme that was run by Abdalla Tamba. He [was] later freed in Kenya, which I came to learn when I saw him on TV,” he said at the Laico Regency.

“After the police displayed him in public, I submitted myself as they had asked if anyone who had been conned to report to them.”

Mungatana explained the business cost him a lot of money together with other prominent individuals.

“Abdalla and his partner came and told me to invest money so we would buy oil. The first and second round there was profit, but the third round, the foreigners simply disappeared and went with the money till recently when I saw him arrested.

“It was not only me who suffered but there were a lot of prominent people who fell prey to the scheme as it seemed genuine.”

The former lawmaker denied that he wanted to be an overnight billionaire.

“My mother taught me to work hard. An accident can happen to anyone as crimes do not respect [people]. If someone suffers such a thing, don’t shame the victim,” Mungatana said.

Betty Kyallo responds to ‘unanona juu unakula kwa wenyewe’ remark

Published

on

Kenyans have called out Betty Kyallo for her unending love for food when shooting her show Weekend with Betty which airs on K24.

For those who might have watched the show, Betty has a tendency of asking if there is food, be it lunch or breakfast before the shoot begins.

In instances where the guest does not cook, they always end up eating out and the fans have noticed that owing to that, Betty is supposedly gaining weight.

One fan wrote

‘Huyu @BettyMKyallo ananona juu ya kukula kula kwa wenyewe.’

To which Betty responded.

Kwani sikulangi kwangu?

Below are some more reactions with some people coming out to defend Betty

@SamStep27927131: Yaani Betty akiingia tu kwa mlango ye huuliza ama kuna chai ni ukweli mwili huwa hujengwi na mawe.

@AgapetusWamalwa: Mwambie hata mwili haiendi na kukula au kutokula. Yote ni mapenzi na maumbile ya Mungu.

@Amosdigitals: Betty tell him you know how to cook. Then invite the niggar to a restaurant near you and buy him a lunch.

@oeclaver: Dem akipigwa shtiki poa….pia yy hunona.

@KenyaaObama: Na imgne mi naona kama ni kionjo…bado utaongeza my friend.

@CarlitozCyrus: Betty usiwe na makasiriko cha muhimu ni kujenga mwili

Personally, I think people should just let Betty be, akiskia atanona mpaka apasuke, it’s her life.

Student dies in Bahati PCEA dorm fire

Published

on

A Form Three student has died in a dormitory fire at Bahati PCEA Secondary School in Nakuru County.

Education director Lawrence Karuntimi said the girl was pronounced dead on arrival at the county hospital following the incident on Saturday night.

Mr Karuntimi said the cause of the fire was yet to be established.

“The only thing we know is that there was a girl in the dorm, which had been closed. When the fire was put out and the dorm opened, it was found that she fell and was overwhelmed by the smoke. Investigators are gathering more information,” he said.

“The scene was processed today. A team from the public works department will do its assessment tomorrow and [report on whether] the place can be inhabited. They will look at the structure and advise us.”

Earlier, Nakuru North deputy divisional police commander, Mr Francis Mwangi, said the girl was the only one in the dormitory when the fire started.

“The dorm had been locked from outside but the girl was left inside … It is a puzzle we are unravelling,” Mr Mwangi said.

“She inhaled a lot of carbon monoxide and was taken to Bahati district hospital but was referred to Nakuru Level Five Hospital. She had no burns on her body, which means she only inhaled the smoke.”

He noted that the school had enough extinguishers to put off the fire.

The officer said all the other students at the school had been accounted for.

Several were injured while trying to remove their belongings from the building.

Some were taken to the Bahati facility and others to Mediheal Hospital in Nakuru town.

“The other girls who were treated for shocks and pains are stable,” Mr Mwangi said.

The Health ministry on Sunday ordered an investigation into The Nairobi Hospital after a patient was allegedly stuck in a lift for an hour and 15 minutes.

In a statement, outgoing Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki said the patient was being transferred on Sunday from the Intensive Care Unit to the High Dependency Unit.

“The hospital administration failed to find an immediate solution to the grave situation,” Ms Kariuki said.

The minister said she had been informed that this was not the first such case at the hospital.

She said she had therefore ordered the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Council to immediately investigate the matter and submit a report in two days.

“The hospital management is hereby directed to ensure patients at the facility are not exposed to similar situations in future,” Ms Kariuki said.

Reached for comment on Sunday, the council’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Daniel Yumbya, said he was at the hospital for a meeting on the matter.

Mr Yumbya told the Nation by phone that the meeting was of the hospital’s management and the patient’s family.

The CEO, who said he was with council chair Eva Njenga, noted that he could not give details.

A source told the Nation that the patient, a 46-year-old man, was stable.
