Police shot my aunt dead at City Park, man says

Published

on

A 26-year-old man who survived a shooting at City Park in Nairobi in May last year, Wednesday narrated the events of the fateful day in court and how his aunt was allegedly killed by policemen.

Two policemen, Mr William Chirchir and Mr Godfrey Kirui, from Makadara and Industrial Area police stations respectively have denied killing the businesswoman in the May 20, 2018 incident.

On Wednesday, Mr Bernard Chege told High Court judge Martha Mutuku that he, Ms Janet Waiyaki and a friend identified as Koome spent the entire night of May 19, 2018 at Pangani shopping centre, chewing miraa (Khat).

He had earlier in the evening picked Ms Waiyaki from her home in Donholm and headed to Pangani.

He said they were chewing miraa seated inside the vehicle. Asked by the prosecutor if they were doing anything unusual, Mr Chege said they were just “chilling”.

They then drove towards Naivasha in the wee hours of the morning, “to view the sunrise” at the Rift Valley view point. They first fuelled their vehicles — Koome was also driving — at a petrol station on Museum Hill before hitting the road.

Upon reaching the scene, it was foggy but they still took pictures before heading back to Nairobi.

On their way, Mr Chege said his aunt (Ms Waiyaki) said she did not want to go back to her house yet and it was then that they decided to drive to City Park and get some rest.

He said he dozed off on the driver’s seat as she slept at the back before they were rudely awoken by someone banging on the car door. “I then saw people and a gun. I switched on the engine and drove off,” he said, adding that he only drove for a few meters before stopping when he felt a sharp pain in his back.

“I realised I had been shot. I was bleeding profusely and I called for help. A policewoman assisted me into a waiting vehicle and took me to Avenue Park hospital,” he said.

The witness said before leaving the scene, he called Ms Waiyaki but she could not respond. “The officer even tried shaking her but she was motionless,” he said. He was hospitalised for about two weeks.

Asked by the prosecutor about his relationship with Ms Waiyaki, Mr Chege said they were very close and they had been to City Park previously. He denied claims that he was found naked inside the car and that he disobeyed orders by the police to open the vehicle. “I put it to you that you are a dishonest person and that you are lying to the court,” Mr Ham Lagat, a defence lawyer said. “It is not true,” Mr Chege added.

Earlier, Ms Faith Wangeci, Chege’s mother testified saying she was informed that the two were shot after defying police orders to open the car doors.

The hearing was adjourned to June 26.

Online scam! Kenyan defrauds Arsenal fan in the UK

Published

on

Popular Arsenal Fans channel AFTV has exposed a Kenyan who recently defrauded an Arsenal fan seeking to purchase a match day ticket off his $100 (approximately Sh 10,000).

The Kenyan has a fake Twitter account pretending to be an English man and requested for the payment to be done via PayPal only for his real name to be revealed as Samuel Mwangi.

After the payment had been sent, he took a while to send the ticket as agreed giving excuses and eventually blocked the buyer who has since reported the incident to PayPal.

Mid last year, a sting operation by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) caught up with two Kenyans who were at the center of cybercrime that defrauded Fairfax County in the US millions of dollars after faking emails pretending to be from giant computer manufacturing firm Dell asking for payments to be rerouted to another account.

It turned out to be a scam, and two Kenyans, Robert Mutua and Jeffrey Sila were at the center of it all.

AFTV has now warned fans to be aware of online scammers who are taking advantage of their desperation to acquire tickets.

It is commonplace for fans to buy tickets from the black market as speculators buy them in bulk within hours of offering.
