We won’t build the five stadiums we promised, Jubilee now admits

Published

on

The government says it will not be able to construct the five state-of-the-art stadiums which President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto promised in 2013.

In its stead, Sports Principal Secretary Kirimi Kaberia says the government is working round the clock to construct one state-of-the-art stadium by the time President Kenyatta’s term of office ends in 2022.

Kaberia added that plans are underway to upgrade four regional stadiums across the country. Upon completion, these yet to be named stadiums will be fit to host international football and athletics events, according to reports by Nairobi News.

CAMPAIGN PLEDGES

“I can assure you we will build one stadium by 2022. We will not be able to construct more than one stadium because of several factors, you know sports is a devolved entity. But then, Nyayo and Kipchoge Keino stadiums are undergoing rehabilitation and will be ready by the end of this year (2019),” Kaberia said.

As one of their campaign pledges, President Kenyatta and his deputy promised to construct five state-of-the-art stadiums in Kisumu, Mombasa, Garissa, Nakuru and Eldoret.

Seven years later and almost one and half years into their second term, not even a groundbreaking ceremony has been done for any of these stadiums.

This unavailability of quality stadiums also led to Kenya being stripped the hosting rights for the 2018 Africa Nations Championship (Chan).

It’s life in jail for police constable who raped a woman in Lamu station

Published

on

A policeman who raped a woman who had sought help at the Lamu Police Station eight months ago has been sentenced to life imprisonment.

On Wednesday this week, a Lamu law court found Police Constable Rodgers Ouma, 32, guilty of the offense he committed in his house at Lamu Police Lines in Langoni on December 8, 2019.Lamu Principal Magistrate Allan Temba also found Ouma guilty of abuse of his position of authority as a police officer.

The court heard that the victim had visited the police station at 8pm on the fateful night to report that her husband was forcing her to take abortion pills to terminate an unplanned pregnancy.After recording her com-plaint, Ouma promised to help her.

As she was about to leave the police station, there was a heavy downpour and Ouma asked her to take cover in his house.

Then he locked the door, grabbed her phone and turned it off before forcing himself on her and threatening to kill her using a knife.The victim managed to escape and spent the night in a neighbour’s house.

She could not go back to her house because she had left her keys and mobile phone in Ouma’s house.The following morning, she reported the matter to Constable Ouma’s seniors. Investigators recovered the victim’s belongings from Ouma’s house and arrested him promptly. A medical examination showed that the woman had indeed been raped.While sentencing the officer, Mr Temba said the complainant, in her victim impact statement given on oath, informed the court that Ouma had relayed new threats to her that should he be released from custody he will ensure that he kills her.

The complainant added that shortly after receiving the threats, relayed through another police officer, some policemen who are colleagues of the convict started trailing her.

Mr Temba said that, after taking into account Ouma’s lack of remorse, the use of threats and the new intimidation tactics, the court had found him to be a dangerous sexual convict under Section 39(1)(b) of the Sexual Offences Act.

“For the aggravated rape, the court sentences him to life imprisonment to protect the complainant from the promised threat and to act as a deterrent to other like-minded persons,” said Mr Temba.

The court also ruled that the complainant should be compensated with Sh400,000 as general dam-ages for soft tissue injuries, mental anguish and torture as stipulated under section 175(2) of the Criminal Pro-cedure Code.

Ouma has the right to appeal within 14 days.
