EXCLUSIVE: SMSes Carol Mwatha Sent to ‘Lover’ Planning Visit to Abortion Clinic

Published

on

As she writhed in pain due to the unsafe abortion that she had undergone, Ms Carol Mwatha did not stop assuring her alleged lover Alexander Gitau Gikonya that she loved him.

In text messages shared between the two lovers and which detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) believe will assist in the investigations, Ms Mwatha clearly explains that she was five months pregnant by Tuesday last week.

She further assured Mr Gikonya that all would be well and asked him to keep her in his prayers as she engaged the doctors at the New Njiru Community Center in Dandora Phase four.

The doctors have since been disowned by the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Board (KMDPB) as quacks.

“Niko poa no worries bt kesho lazima nirauke hossy aki usiku ndio nalemewa mbaya plus homa bt all will be ok ave a lovely day ahead n tkecare bbie, Miss uuu (sic),” read the message that she sent him on Tuesday night.

Then on Wednesday morning, she could again send “Nishafika hossy already juz pray for me thanx n Luv u.”

Little did the activist, who has been vocal on matters extra judicial killings in Eastlands, know that her life was about to end and her ‘lovebird’ would keep silent about the matter until the police got hold of him.

From their conversation, it was clear that they had agreed that Ms Mwatha was to do away with her pregnancy.

Detectives are now working round the clock to establish why they opted for an abortion even as it emerges that Ms Mwatha was married to a Joshua Ochieng who works in Dubai.

The police believe that Ms Mwatha was seeing Mr Gikonyo behind the back of her husband and it would have been one of the reasons they opted to do away with the pregnancy.

In their conversation, Ms Mwatha further reveals that doctors at the facility had asked for Sh7,000 but she bargained it to Sh 6,000.

Ms Mwatha also revealed to the boyfriend that according to doctors she was five month pregnant.

From the conversation, it seems that she left the clinic okay and even went to Burma market where she says she bought liver, meat and bones for soup. But things went from bad to worse that evening as she says she was on her way to the clinic for more services.

“Nilienda Bamaa kubuy Maini, nyama na mifupa za supuu nisharudi ndio nataka kurudi hossy tena tu nimechoka uchungu kiasi bt naenda kumaliziwa akin y we will take later nikishamaliziwa thnx don’t worry too much all will be ok thnc,” she wrote.

The message detectives believe was amongst the last conversations the deceased made before she met her death.

So far, six people have been arrested and arraigned in court.

They include Mr Gikonya (the boyfriend), Betty Akinyi Nyanya alias Betty Ramoya, Richard Ramoya Abudo (Betty’s son), Georgia Achieng Tabitha, Michael Onchiri alias Dr Mike and Mr Stephen Maina (an Uber driver).

Kenya Prison cells where life is as in luxurious hotels, complete with Cable TV and flush toilets

Published

on

Every time the fortified metallic gates clang shut, they are supposed to confine an estimated 3,000 convicts and remandees in a world where all but the most fundamental freedoms are upheld.But in this world, our investigations have established, convicted criminals and remand prisoners who dare to dream and have access to cash, can live like kings in self-contained cells kitted with satellite TV services and flush toilets.Welcome to the contradictions of Kamiti Maximum Security Prison where some form of luxury is available to a few while thousands wallow in misery and want.

When he was hauled back from Britain to face charges of child trafficking in 2017, controversial televangelist, Gilbert Deya was shocked when he was locked up in the facility.After his experience at the Woolworth Prison in West London while fighting extradition, what hit Deya at Kamiti was shocking.One, he had to relieve himself in a bucket, in full view of other inmates, and empty it. When he appeared in court, he took a bucket he had been using in the cell as evidence.“I was detained at the Punishment Block at Kamiti where some famous politicians such as Kenneth Matiba and Raila Odinga had been locked up.

After my problems with the bucket, I wrote to the prison authorities and requested them to allow me install a flush toilet in my ward and they agreed,” said Deya.Besides installing the flush toilet in his ward, he had nine others put in the adjoining wards, giving Kamiti a feel of a luxury in jail, where prisoners could now answer the call of nature in dignity.Today, Deya believes Kamiti, where he spent nine months until he was released on May 23, 2018, is better than prisons in Britain. Prisoners too have fond memories of his stay. “Deya also introduced DSTV in prison. This was unheard of but he somehow negotiated with the prison authorities until he was allowed a set,” an inmate says.The changes he pioneered, known as VIP, have cascaded to other wards. Although the famous former Vice President Moody Awori’s reforms in 2003 had provided TVs for prisoners, they were all smashed up during a riot in 2008.

Our investigations found that there are at least 50 TV sets in Kamiti, which are distributed in the various wards. Block A, which has 10 wards has an equal number of TVs while block D has four sets followed by E with two, while F, G and isolation have one set each. In the wing where terror suspects are remanded, there is one TV.At the VIP wing three former police officers, a hit man and a highly connected former court clerk are all serving life sentences and death for murder.

They all enjoy the services of pay cable TV programmes.However, in the other wards, the inmates have found alternatives.“We have subscribed to a lower digital service TV where we pay about Sh1,000 a month. The accounts were opened by prisoners who are in Kamiti. I pay mine every month using mobile money transfer,” says a prisoner.The prisoners say some TV packages were preferred because they do not require satellite dishes but instead rely on aerials.However, inside their cells, the inmates still have to contend with thin and tattered mattresses, which are shared  by because of a serious shortage.“Some inmates share mattresses because the prisons do not have enough.

The same case applies to uniforms and sweaters where inmates have to pay for their own uniforms or walk around in rags,” says an inmate. A prisoner on death row says, “It is normal for the bus to carry at least 120 inmates and prison officers. At times we are ferried to courts using leased lorries, which are equally uncomfortable.

Why Zahra Moi declined appointment to Nairobi Hospital board

Published

on

Zahra Moi has explained why she turned down her nomination to be a director at the Board of Management of Kenya Hospital Association, the owners of the Nairobi Hospital.

Zahra, who is the wife of Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, has expressed her reservations regarding the nomination through a letter sent to the Nairobi Hospital Company Secretary.

“It is with regret, however, that I must decline your invitation. Due to time constraints, my schedule simply will not allow me to participate meaningfully on your board at this time,” Zahra explained in her letter.

“I have immense respect for the work you do, and fear that the demands on my time will prevent me from giving the KHA the attention it deserves,” she explained further.

STANDOFF

She also noted that she did not participate in any of the meetings leading to her nomination, nor did she offer herself for election.

Zahra said she had not been at the Nairobi Hospital in recent times, contrary to media reports on the recent change of guard at the facility.

On 17th April there was a standoff at the Nairobi Hospital as the newly-elected board members tried to access the premises.

The current board members said that they were still running the hospital as they had been given a court order barring the elected members to assume office pending hearing.

REAPPOINTMENT

“We are happy to inform you that the court has issued an order restraining those purported to have been elected from assuming office pending inter-party hearing,” the board members said in an advert in local dailies on Friday.

“We wish to assure you that the validly elected Board of Management continues to run The Nairobi Hospital and is making the best efforts to implement strategic decisions to enhance the governance and operations of the hospital,” read the advert.

Last month, Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala reappointed Mrs Moi to sit in Tourism Research Institute Board, a post she has held since 2016.

“In exercise of the powers conferred by section 54 (1) (h) of the Tourism Act, 2011, the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism and Wildlife re-appoints Zahra Bahwela Moi to be a member of the Board of Tourism Research Institute, for a period of three years, with effect from the 1st June, 2019,” the notice read.
