Police chase leaves pregnant woman dead

Published

The anticipation for a newborn baby turned to mourning after a 25-year-old pregnant woman was hit and killed by a lorry driver who was allegedly fleeing from the police.

Ms Eunice Maguke, whom family members said was six-months’ pregnant, met her gruesome death at her roadside kiosk on Kabachi in Nakuru town where she was busy arranging her groceries.

The mother of one died on the spot following the Monday afternoon incident.

“I saw a lorry speeding towards our kiosks and within seconds, screams filled the air and the next minute, I saw Maguke’s body. The driver of the lorry tried escaping but boda boda riders intercepted him and beat him up. He was rushed to a local hospital,” said Ms Gladys Nekesa, who owns an adjacent kiosk.

Several other witnesses told Nation they saw a police vehicle giving chase to the lorry that was ferrying sand before the driver crashed into the kiosks.

“I saw the police vehicle make a U-turn after they realised the lorry had been involved in an accident. It is not clear where the lorry was heading to with the construction material,” said a resident who sought not to be identified.

Eyewitnesses said it took police officers about half an hour to collect the woman’s body from the scene to the Nakuru War Memorial Hospital mortuary.

Residents said it was puzzling why the officers took that long yet the Nakuru Central Police Station is only a few kilometres from the scene of the accident.

When reached for comment, Nakuru OCPD Samuel Obara said he was not at the station and directed the press to speak to his deputy Mr Daniel Kitavi.

Just like his boss, Mr Kitavi toll the media to call his boss.

The Nakuru County Police Commander Stephen Matu also said was away from the station attending a seminar.

Police are yet to give details on the incident, including whether they are going to charge the offending driver and why their colleagues were pursuing the lorry.

The deceased’s family through her husband is now demanding justice for their kin, saying she innocently met death while at work.

“We want justice for our kin because the vehicle was fleeing a police dragnet before it caused the accident,” said Mr Walter Oginga, the victim’s husband.

Residents have also called on the county government to erect bumps in the area.

Kiss Fm presenter Linda Nyangweso: I felt a lot of shame eating in public

Published

on

Kiss Fm presenter Linda Nyangweso has opened up about her struggle with weight.

In an episode of the ‘Legally Clueless’ podcast, the presenter shared how having weight issues made her afraid of even eating in public.

“The truth is I feel like every woman is insecure right? I have always had body insecurity issues because I just don’t look like the other girls who I am told are supposed to be the beautiful ones, it’s hard to be a plus sized girl. I went to an artsy school where everyone was limber, skinny and blonde and then I joined an industry where beauty is more marketable than anything. It has been an ongoing insecurity. I used to hate taking pictures because it was evident that I was very different. I was not only super short, I was also super fat and so you kind of standout standing next to these tall Amazonian girls around you,” Linda confessed.

“I had to stop that because I like who I am, I deserve to take up space. I constantly feel like I have to apologize for existing because I didn’t look like what you think I should look like. I stopped feeling that way when I realized that if I’m constantly apologizing for existing I am not actually living.”

Linda

Only when she was at peace with her image did things easy up on her. She said now she doesn’t mind much.

“I eat and I don’t feel shame about it, I used to feel a lot of shame about eating especially in public because I always felt that when people see me eat they think I am constantly eating. I stopped eating in public, I never ate is school because I was afraid people assumed that is all I am doing anyway. These days I am shameless about that. I can say I am hungry and I don’t feel like that makes me look fatter,” Linda said.
