Shock as pastors and bereaved mother exhume daughter’s body, buried two weeks ago

Published

on

On December 23, Esther Waceke died in an accident. The death of the one-year-old girl hit her family hard but they appeared to accept the painful reality and Waceke was buried on Boxing Day.

The girl’s mother, however, could not come to terms with the demise of her third-born daughter. In her deep pain, she met with two self-professed men of God and a shocking plan was hatched.

Yesterday, the residents of Karati village in Naivasha woke to a bizarre spectacle where the woman and her two helpers hired a local youth to exhume Waceke’s body.

As word spread and the number of bewildered spectators swelled, the exhumer continued to work undeterred as the mother wailed uncontrollably.

When the coffin was finally pulled free from the earth and opened, the mother reached in and removed her daughter’s body. The two men stepped closer and the three of them started praying for Waceke’s resurrection.

Alarmed residents

By this time some of the alarmed residents had already alerted the authorities. Chief Samuel Ng’ang’a arrived in the company of police officers who arrested the woman, her sister and the two men.

The woman, who tried to keep her face hidden and refused to answer questions from the media, said she believed her daughter did not die and that she was ‘mistakenly’ buried.

She said her faith would bring her child back to life and wondered why the crowd was watching instead of praying with her.

“Stop asking me questions and instead join me at the grave as we pray for my daughter to wake up so that we can go home together,” she said.

Mr Ng’ang’a said the exhumation was illegal and that police were handling the matter. He added that Waceke’s body was taken to Naivasha Hospital mortuary.

“The woman is yet to come to terms with the loss of her daughter. Some men who claim to be religious leaders have taken advantage of the situation,” the chief said.

Peter Kimani, a resident, described the incident as bizarre and added that they had never heard of anybody being brought back to life in the area.

Mr Kimani said it was possible the woman was suffering from depression and that she would require counselling to accept that her child had died and had been buried

.“These are some churches that are misleading their followers that they can raise someone who has died. This is wrong,” he said.This is not the first time that grieving relatives have attempted to resurrect their loved ones.

In March 2017, Robinson Karumba and seven members of his Eagles Wings Prophetic Ministry in Embu turned up at a morgue and requested to pray for a ‘sleeping’ woman to wake up.

The woman was Karumba’s wife, Pollyrose Ng’endo, who had died while receiving treatment for tuberculosis at a hospital in Kirinyaga.

They locked themselves inside Gakwegori mortuary and prayed for Ng’endo’s resurrection from 11am as they poured anointing oil on the body.

“We don’t believe in what they are doing but we have allowed them to proceed with their prayers. They have been praying for the past three hours and they seem indefatigable,” said Gladys Murugi, one of the morgue attendants.

And in 2010, worshippers at the Kingdom Seekers Fellowship Church in Nakuru held daylong prayers for the resurrection of two pastors who had perished in a road accident on the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.

“We shall not bury them. We need them back to keep the church strong. Their work here on earth is not yet done,” said one of the pastors, John Kimani.

Raburu’s wife goes on a self-discovery journey weeks after losing her daughter

Published

on

Marya Prude wife to Citizen TV host Willis Raburu has said that she is trying to rediscover herself once again weeks after the loss of her daughter.

The couple, who were expecting their first child, have taken time off after they lost their unborn baby.

Weeks ago Mrs Raburu had questioned God for leaving her when she needed him the most. Well she is making an effort to reconnect with God.

‘I don’t know who you are anymore but I want to embark on a self discovery journey and find you and love you as you deserve coz you only deserve the best.’

Willis Raburu’s wife Marya.

On Wednesday January 8 through Instagram, Prude penned a heart wrenching prayer to God explaining her emotional state.

“EVERYONE IS SO QUICK TO TELL ME ABOUT GOD. WHAT THEY DON’T KNOW IS THAT EVERY WAY I KNEW HIM, HE WAS TESTED AND HE DIDN’T PROVE HIMSELF,” SHE WROTE.

Adding,

“SO AS THEY SAY YOU SHOULD KNOW GOD FOR YOURSELF, I NOW CAN SAY, I DON’T KNOW HIM. AND I DON’T THINK I WANT TO KNOW HIM COZ HE LEFT ME WHEN I NEEDED HIM THE MOST,” MARYA LAMENTED.

A week later, Willis penned a long post to his daughter saying that she is forever etched on his mind and heart.

‘My beautiful daughter, some days are easy some days are so hard.

Today I woke up trying to imagine what it would be like to watch you sleep, ( that’s the only image I have of you) what it be like you hold warm fingers, what a sleepless night would feel like.

What it would be like to go to work tired Koz you kept me up at night, who you would look like now?

what color of your skin? if you would drink as much milk as I did when I was your age. My daughter, you are an angel now, or so they tell me and when I look up to the sky sometimes I cry, sometimes I sometimes I laugh.’

Adding

‘I want you to make so much noise in heaven, or in the multi-verse you are in,I want you to have all your the people who are with you there say “Yeap that’s Willis’ child” I miss you so much.

It’s funny that I have a picture of you but even before I look at it, your face is engrained in my heart, etched in my soul, tattooed in my very essence.

Willis Raburu

My daughter, my sweet lovely beautiful daughter, I’m sorry that you have to see daddy weak and in grief and not the pillar of strength that you and your mother need.

But my daughter, daddy loves you, since He listens to you talk to Him and tell Him, daddy doesn’t understand but daddy needs help. Rest In Palaces, RIP because you are royalty. 👼🏾👸🏾#QueenAdana.‘

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.
