Wife recalls Murage’s failed plot to smuggle baby from KNH



The wife of the man who tried to smuggle their baby out of the Kenyatta National Hospital over a Sh56,000 bill has narrated how the failed plot was hatched.

Vivian Murage said her husband, Boniface Murage, who secured his freedom Tuesday morning after a Nairobi court handed him a three-month suspended sentence revealed the plan to her on Saturday during a routine hospital visit.

“He came in the morning and asked me: “Do you think the baby will fit in this bag? I responded in the affirmative. He then directed me to put the baby inside the carrier bag. He picked the bag and left,” Murage’s wife explained on Tuesday.

As fate would have it though, the daring escape from the hospital’s ‘detention’ came crumbling down as Murage walked past a security checkpoint while exiting the ward.

“What is that you’re carrying young man?” Murage recalls being asked by one of the guards.

According to Murage, the guards insisted on confirming the contents of the bag, a request he had no choice but to heed.

“I had carefully placed the baby inside the bag. It was well ventilated,” he recalled/MOSES MUOKI

His submission to authority nearly had anger-stricken spectators descend on him as security guards accused him of attempting to suffocate the baby.

“I had carefully placed the baby inside the bag. It was well ventilated,” he recalled.

Murage was lucky enough to escape the wrath of the security guards who upon checking established the baby was alive.

Vivian said she had to come to his defence confirming to the guards that there was indeed no ill-motive other than the desire for them to escape from the hospital which had detained them since February 11 when the doctors issued a discharge note.

Murage was later transferred to a police station where he spent the weekend in detention awaiting arraignment on Monday.

“My parents got married three days after they met. They just celebrated 37 years. Love knows no timeline,” she wrote.

The excited woman showed off a photo of her parents back when they were young and all that could be seen in their eyes was unending love.

Africanprize even flaunted a gorgeous snap of her

Of course in the modern day, such relationships are frowned upon as most people insist on dating for a couple of years before settling into marriage.

Some of her followers thought that was a love story worth celebrating.

Others however, could not wrap their heads around the thought of getting hitched to a complete stranger.

AP officer in Mama Lucy Hospital shooting drama detained for 8 days



The administration police officer suspected of shooting and killing a bodaboda rider at the Mama Lucy Kibaki hospital in Komarock area, Nairobi on Tuesday will be held in police custody until February 28.

Detective constable Laban Kalama attached to Kayole Directorate of Criminal Investigations offices obtained custodial orders to hold constable Zadock Achuka Ayego at the Kayole police station.

The orders were granted by Makadara chief magistrate Heston Nyaga.

Kalama said he is investigating a case of murder where Ayego is suspected to have shot dead Daniel Mburu Wangari during a confrontation between police officers and bodaboda riders at the hospital.

He said Mburu was rushed to the same hospital where he succumbed to injuries.

He had sought 14 days custodial orders to record witness statements, conduct a mental assessment of the suspect and get the postmortem report of the deceased.


Ayego’s lawyer Ayako Kanyoko, however, objected. She said the detention period sought by the DCI was unnecessarily long.

“The incident happened n Nairobi, all witnesses are in Nairobi and the investigations are happening in Nairobi. Three days should be enough,” Kanyoko said.

But state counsel Joseph Mburugu said the time was not lengthy. Mburugu said the investigations were not happening in the same office.

For instance, Mburugu said the mental assessment is only done at the Mathari Hospital and a booking must be done and an appointment obtained before the suspect is taken there.

Nyaga said he is considerate that the matter has sparked public interest because of the stature of the suspect – being a police officer but the same cannot affect the determination on whether he will be granted bail and bond or not.

Several witnesses have recorded statements with the DCI, including Mburu’s mother, the two riders who went to the hospital with him.

They had been arrested during a commotion that happened as they were being forced out of the hospital and locked up at the Kayole police station but were released on Wednesday after recording the statements.

The senator’s statement comes at a time when Narok county in Rift Valley is set host the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally.

The rally will be held on Saturday, February 22, at Narok Stadium

Raila met close allies of Deputy President William Ruto from the Maa community in Rongai on Monday, February 17, ahead of the highly anticipated sensitisation forum.

The African Union envoy said the community has been sidelined for a long time and explained the BBI will ensure their issues are addressed fully.

“The meeting was informed by concerns that divisions have over the years made the Maa community lose out in negotiations that have shaped Kenya. Leaders expressed concern that the Maa delegation was divided at the Lancaster Constitution Conference and also in the making of the 2010 Constitution,” he said.

Cheruiyot asked Raila to engage all leaders who do not agree with him politically to discuss issues related to BBI.

“As a statesman, Raila should be able to engage all leaders including those on the opposite sides, let him shed his tag as the ODM leader in his quest for unity,” he said.
