It is with heavy heart that we sadly announce the sudden passing of Jacob Simatwa of Endebess, Kitale-Kenya and a member of the Kenyan community in the United States.

Jacob died on January 24th, 2020 while living in St. Louis, Missouri, USA in a house he shared with another roommate. He spoke with friends and went to sleep that night but never woke up in the morning.

He was an alumni of Coastal Carolina University and is well remembered as a notable athlete. He was a member of the men’s cross country and track & field team from 2002-04.

Also a member of the 2003 Big South Outdoor Track & Field championship team, Simatwa was a four-time Big South Outdoor Track & Field individual champion in the 400 meters in both 2003 and 2004 and was part of the 4×400 meter relay team in both 2003 and 2004 as well.

The Funeral committee in the United States met on January 25th 2020 via teleconference call and received preliminary information on the death and committed to lead fundraising effort to repatriate the body back to Kenya following his family’s plea.

We are sincerely appealing to the Kenyan community and well wishers in the United States to assist in raising funds to send Jacob’s body back to Kenya. Prior to his death, Jacob was jobless and with no insurance coverage nor any personal reserve cash in the bank.

‘How did you interview cows?’: Kenyans online bash US-based CBS news over locusts’ Invasion Story

Published

on

By JUDITH GICOBI

CBS News, US-based media house, is facing the wrath of Kenyans on social media after publishing an article on the locusts invasion in the country.

The media house on Saturday posted an article titled, Locust outbreak in Kenya is worst in 70 years: “Even cows are wondering what is happening.”

CBS News quotes a Kenyan by the name Ndunda Makanga explaining how the insects have wreaked havoc to the farmers’ crops including sorghum, corn, and cowpeas.

The media house claims the headline quote was gotten from Makanga but Kenyans online are not believing it, especially how they got the cows’ side of the story.

Below are some of the reactions from online users.

@OliverMathenge asked: “Did the Kenyan cows tell you so.”

@Okolowaka noted: “My cow was not interviewed & elects to distance itself from this report…this does not represent the viewpoint of all cows in Kenya.”

@gmwahome posed: “The current living cows were not alive 70 years ago! How many cows have you interviewed?”

@allhaggai wondered: “How did the cows express those views?”

@jacouf stated: “Now I know what CBS stands for…Cows Broadcasting Service. Now waiting for the interview with Kenyan cows.”
