The remains of a Kenyan woman who was stabbed to death by her boyfriend at her apartment in Toronto, Canada will arrive in the country on Thursday.

It is believed Lorraine Kerubo Ogoti, 30, who moved to Toronto one year ago for further studies, was stabbed to death in a love triangle.

The mother of one was pronounced dead on January 11 after being found by police suffering from life-threatening injuries inside an eight-floor apartment building.

Speaking to CTV, Canada her parents, who travelled to Toronto last week, said it was very difficult for them to make the trip to collect their daughter’s remains.

MURDER

According to family, Lorraine moved to Canada about one year ago to seek employment opportunities. She has been described as a “go-getter” who made friends easily.

Lorraine was a very outgoing person. Very humble, very amiable. She was very hospitable and she was kind. And she loved her son very much. Everything that she would have she would really like to share with him,” said her mother, Anne Ogoti.

She added that her daughter was planning to return to Kenya to visit her four-year-old son, Moses, in the New Year. She also said that Lorraine had intended to relocate her son to Canada.

She was saying, in the future, when she has settled down, she would very much like her son to join her,” Ogoti said.

Her parents said they have forgiven the person responsible for their daughter’s death, but are still confused about the circumstances leading up to the murder.

INVESTIGATION

Officers told them that a 40-year-old man, who was found dead on the sidewalk outside the same apartment building where Lorraine Ogoti was found, was their daughter’s boyfriend.

Police said that his cause of death was “blunt force trauma.” Officers are not searching for any other suspects in the incident.

A requiem service will be held on Friday at Laiser Hill SDA Church in Ongata Rongai followed by the burial ceremony.

The family insists that Lorraine’s death must be investigated thoroughly to establish whether indeed she died in a love triangle as claimed.

Education CS George Magoha has directed both primary and secondary schools to refund second and third term fees to parents who had already paid.

Addressing members of the press on Wednesday, the CS, however, noted that the parents and the institutions are free to enter into an agreement to carry forward the monies to cater for school fees when learners resume classes next year.

The CS spoke a day after he declared the 2020 academic year “lost” due to the coronavirus pandemic threat.

In a press briefing on Tuesday Magoha announced that primary and secondary schools will reopen in January 2021.

The CS said there will be no Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) and Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations this year as they have all been pushed to 2021.

“In consultation with the Ministry of Health, we have agreed schools to reopen when daily Covid-19 cases reduce consistently for 14 days. Social and physical distancing is the most critical factor in ensuring the safety of learners,” said Magoha.

Autopsy offers zero clues on how Athi River children died

Published

on

It will take about three to four weeks to establish when exactly two children who were discovered in the back seat of a car at Athi River Police Station died, after they went missing for three weeks.

This is after an autopsy conducted on the bodies of Alvina Mutheu (3) and Henry Jacktone (4) yesterday returned inconclusive results.

Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor said that the two bodies were too decomposed for him to find out the reason for their death.

“We could not establish the cause of the deaths of the children because their bodies had decomposed and had experienced a lot of deterioration. There has been massive tissue loss and maggot infestation that hindered us from drawing a firm conclusion,” Dr Johansen said.

It also emerged that there were no signs of injuries on the two bodies, and consequently, the government pathologist said he has forwarded samples to the government chemist for further tests.

A forensic entomologist will be able to analyse the samples and tell exactly when the two children died, a process that will take another three to four weeks.

“There were no fractures on their bones and we cannot attribute their deaths to any specific cause. We now rely on the police and further results from the government lab to figure the details of the deaths,” he added.

NO PEACE

The Executive Director of Haki Yetu activist group Hussein Khalid asked the police as well as the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to fast-track investigations into the deaths.

Baby Jackton’s father, Stephen Mulinge, said he was not yet at peace and would only rest when the truth surrounding the deaths of the children is found.

“We are still waiting for the results from the government chemist. I am not yet satisfied with the autopsy done today. We want justice to prevail. For now, we will wait,” Mr Mulinge said.

This development will now see the burial of the two children postponed further because the bodies were retained until the government tests are completed and results given.

TOUGH QUESTIONS REMAIN

Many questions remain after their bizarre deaths, including who killed the two children and how they got to the backseat of a car that had been towed to the police station.

It is also not clear how the officers based at the station did not detect the smell emanating from the decomposing bodies.

The two children had gone to play near the Kenya Meat Commission (KMC) in Athi River but never came back home, prompting their parents to report their disappearance on June 11 at the same police station.
