Lost in morgue: After 3 months of anxiety, family finds daughter’s body in mortuary

Published

on

A family from Isabalu Village in Central Maragoli, Vihiga County is reeling from sorrow after they discovered – on January 23 – that their relative died in the grisly Fort Ternan Homeboyz bus crash, which claimed 55 lives in October last year.

Susan Ludenyi, 32, was headed to her parents’ home from Nairobi, when the accident happened.

Ludenyi had visited her Nairobi-based friend, identified only as Caro, in September; and was returning to Vihiga on October 10, 2018, when the Homeboyz bus she was aboard veered off the road and rolled several times at Tunnel area on the Muhoroni-Londiani Road in Kericho County, killing at least 50 on the spot.

Ludenyi had – until September 2018 –, spent most of her lifetime in Vihiga.

Ludenyi’s mother, Margaret Daisy, said she had, on numerous occasions, tried reaching her daughter on phone after October 10, but her attempts were unsuccessful because her cell phone line was off.

Ludenyi’s friend, Caro, would, in mid January this year, call Margaret to inquire if Ludenyi had arrived home safely.

When Margaret answered on the negation, Caro advised her to go look for her body at the Kericho County Referral Hospital mortuary because she [Caro] suspected that Ludenyi had boarded the ill-fated Homeboyz bus.

Margaret sought the help of Central Maragoli MCA, Evans Chunguli, and Vihiga Constituency MP, Ernest Kagesi, who faclitated her travel to Kericho, where she positively identified her daughter’s body on January 23 after confirming with officers at the Kipkelion Police Post, where Ludenyi was registered as dead.

Ludenyi’s remains have since been transported to Vihiga, where she will be buried on February 1.

Ludenyi, who separated from her husband, is survived by a son and a daughter.

Her family has appealed for assistance in educating Ludenyi’s children.

MP Millie Odhiambo denies shouting down DP Ruto

Published

on

Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo (pictured), has denied shouting down Deputy President William Ruto at Bomas of Kenya yesterday at the Bomas of Kenya. Odhiambo says she was only answering questions posed by the DP in his BBI address.

The outspoken legislator says she did not have a microphone to enable her respond to DP Ruto’s submissions against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

“I was answering his questions because he was asking us questions about what should be done, and I was basically reminding him he is the deputy president and I should be asking him the questions he was asking and not vice versa,” the MP said in an exclusive interview with KTN News.

Odhiambo concurred with DP Ruto’s thinking when she acknowledged that there may be areas that need strengthening in the report even if it promises more gains to the Kenyan people.

 “There are some issues that will be addressed through the constitutional review and some through legislative action,” she told KTN News.

During the launch at the Bomas of Kenya, DP Ruto made several submissions on areas to be reviewed in the BBI report.

In his speech, he said the real elephant in the room was the post-poll winner-takes-it-all mentality which the BBI was trying to address by creating the position of a Prime Minister and two deputies.

He wondered how that would take care of other big political heavyweights who would still find themselves without political offices.

Midway his speech, the DP had to pause as sections of the crowd jeered at him while shouting “Respect the President.”

According to Odhiambo, the DP was talking of a coalition government something that the BBI report is not addressing.

“BBI is talking about inclusion [and] we are saying that in a case where you win as a president, then you need to expand the framework of regions that are represented in the executive,” she said.

The MP rubbished reports that DP Ruto allies never received invites for the Bomas of Kenya conference.

Odhiambo said most of the Tangatanga allied MPs chose not to show up despite being invited to the forum that was to be used to air issues in the report.

However, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwah, a DP Ruto ally, says the process was surrounded with hypocrisy.

He echoed Ruto’s remarks that the report did not touch on issues affecting Kenyans such as unemployment of the youth, saying this ought to constitute the national dialogue.

“The only two people who captured imaginations of Kenyans were DP Ruto and former vice president Musalia Mudavadi,” he said, adding that, “those are the only people who were bold enough to articulate the real issues affecting Kenyans.”

Despite being heckled Ruto made his remarks insisting we needed to have a candid discussion before the report is embraced.

Ex-military officer accused of killing ex-wife, children wants ATM cards released

Published

on

A former senior military officer at the Laikipia Air Base accused of murdering his ex-wife and her two children has asked the court to allow him to get back ATM cards and other personal items confiscated by police.

Major Peter Mugure told Justice Abigail Mshila that detectives took away his ATM cards which may not be used as evidence in the murder case, where he is accused of killing his ex-wife Joyce Syombua, Shanice Maua and Prince Michael.

“They took away a number of personal items including my ATM cards. I’m asking to have them returned to me because I do not think they are part of the evidence,” Mugure told the Justice Mshila in a virtual court session.

Although some of the personal items could be used as part of the evidence, Mshila told Mugure to make a list of the items and asked defence counsel to check the inventory and make an application for the release of items that state doesn’t need as evidence.

“Some of the personal items like clothing, or ATM cards could be taken for analysis to enable show your movements. The inventory is in the prosecution file and you could make a list of the items you need to be released,” said Mshila.

The case in which Mugure is jointly accused with Collins Pamba, a former employee at Laikipia Air Base was coming up for hearing on Tuesday but it was postponed to a later date following the transfer of Judge Jairus Ngaah who was handling the matter in Nyeri.

Mugure joined the session from King’ong’o GK Prison in Nyeri and Pamba at Kerugoya prison.

The two are accused of killing the deceased parsons on October 26 last year at the Laikipia Air Base situated in Nanyuki.

The three bodies were recovered buried in a shallow grave after Pamba led police to the site at Kilimo area in Thingithu, in the outskirts of Nanyuki town.

In the previous session when the ex-major was denied bail on February 21, Justice Ngaah cited damning evidence in Pamba’s affidavit implicating Mugure in the gruesome murder of his ex-lover and his two children.

Pamba’s statement as recorded in court file detailed how Mugure called him from Nairobi on a material day and asked for his help to the ferry and bury the bodies and in return, help the casual worker secure employment at Kenya Defense Forces.

The mentioned date was scheduled for December 9.
