Catholic priest accused of sleeping with schoolgirls and married women chased out of church

Published

on

The Nairobi Catholic Archdiocese has kicked out a priest, who is under investigation for sexual misconduct.

A priest from Githunguri in Kiambu, who was mid last year accused of sleeping with female parishioners — including schoolgirls and married women — will remain suspended until the outcome of the investigation is vetted and a verdict made at the church headquarters in Rome.

This is after a tribunal formed by John Cardinal Njue filed a report, which sources said had been forwarded to the Vatican.

The youthful priest — who has since left John Paul II, a Catholic institution in Murang’a where he had been banished — was accused of luring young women to his residence and having sex with them.

The residence would at times host lewd parties where girls would be served with alcohol.

He would also arrange outings in hotels where, among other things, the girls would swim naked.

Some of his victims were reported to be minors. When the girls got pregnant, the priest allegedly helped them to procure abortions.

In one incident, according to sources privy to the priest’s amorous behaviour, he reportedly paid a Sh40,000 bribe to conceal his wayward behaviour.

After the issue was brought to the attention of the church leadership in September last year, Cardinal Njue, who is also the Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Nairobi, and Auxiliary Bishop David Kamau announced his suspension until the matter is concluded.

In the suspension notice, referenced ‘decree of suspension of Rev Fr (name withheld)’, Cardinal Njue said the allegations, which the priest, who is only five years into the calling, was facing, “were grave and cannot be left without sanction”.

This, he said, was in line with the church laws. “I, therefore, as stipulated in law, (direct) that you step aside and let the investigations be concluded without interference, suspend you a divinis (cannot celebrate Mass) until that time the process is complete,” said the suspension notice.

The notice added, “you are not to exercise your powers of orders (as a priest) until the investigations are complete and case concluded. Specifically, you are forbidden to celebrate the sacrament and further prohibited from exercising the power of governance in the church”.

The priest’s victims were given an opportunity to make their case before the tribunal.

In the video, Kasee was being interviewed by a local media and gave a goodbye that nobody thought meant anything, until now.

While bidding the filming crew goodbye, the late told his fans if they failed to find him, then they should know he’s in heaven.

“If you don’t find me, just know that I am in heaven or in Kinoo,” Kasee said while facing the camera.

When asked by the interviewer not to adhere to the call, Kasee responded saying:

“C’mon if its Jesus, I’ll just perform a somersault (accept his call),” he said amidst laughter.

The late Kasee’s remarks left many wondering if the young man saw what was coming.

Laugh Industry’s Ken Waudo speaking to TUKO.co.ke said he believed the young man had drunk a contaminated drink which led this death.

His autopsy was to be done and confirm the exact cause of death which, until now, is yet to be revealed.

Kasee was a loving father of two young kids who had actually turned a new leaf in his life after starting a wholesale business before he turned back to his drinking ways which ultimately contributed to his demise.

The comedian was laid to rest on Saturday, June 4, in Matuu – Machakos county, Itumunduni village.

Kenyans among foreign students likely to be deported from US if they take full-online classes in fall

Published

on

The Department of Homeland Security has issued a policy revision on foreign students studying in the United States which will lead to mass deportation of students who don’t take on-campus classes.

The department has restricted foreign students from attending classes completely online. The restrictions include the possibility of deportation. See full press release here below:

SEVP modifies temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking online courses during fall 2020 semester.

WASHINGTON – The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) announced modifications Monday to temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking online classes due to the pandemic for the fall 2020 semester. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security plans to publish the procedures and responsibilities in the Federal Register as a Temporary Final Rule.

Temporary exemptions for the fall 2020 semester include:

  1. Nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 students attending schools operating entirely online may not take a full online course load and remain in the United States. The U.S. Department of State will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools and/or programs that are fully online for the fall semester nor will U.S. Customs and Border Protection permit these students to enter the United States. Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status. If not, they may face immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings.
  2. Nonimmigrant F-1 students attending schools operating under normal in-person classes are bound by existing federal regulations. Eligible F students may take a maximum of one class or three credit hours online.
  3. Nonimmigrant F-1 students attending schools adopting a hybrid model—that is, a mixture of online and in person classes—will be allowed to take more than one class or three credit hours online. These schools must certify to SEVP, through the Form I-20, “Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status,” certifying that the program is not entirely online, that the student is not taking an entirely online course load this semester, and that the student is taking the minimum number of online classes required to make normal progress in their degree program. The above exemptions do not apply to F-1 students in English language training programs or M-1 students pursing vocational degrees, who are not permitted to enroll in any online courses.

Schools should update their information in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) within 10 days of the change if they begin the fall semester with in-person classes but are later required to switch to only online classes, or a nonimmigrant student changes their course selections, and as a result, ends up taking an entirely online course load. Nonimmigrant students within the United States are not permitted to take a full course of study through online classes. If students find themselves in this situation, they must leave the country or take alternative steps to maintain their nonimmigrant status such as a reduced course load or appropriate medical leave.

Due to COVID-19, SEVP instituted a temporary exemption regarding online courses for the spring and summer semesters. This policy permitted nonimmigrant students to take more online courses than normally permitted by federal regulation to maintain their nonimmigrant status during the COVID-19 emergency.

F-1 nonimmigrant students pursue academic coursework and M-1 nonimmigrant students pursue vocational coursework while studying in the United States.
