Youthful Kenyan Pastor accused of sexual harassment

Published

on

Just a few days after two popular Kenyan Gospel singers hit the headlines over a sex scandal, yet another girl has come out to guns blazing with accusations about another self-proclaimed man of the cloth taking advantage of young girls.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday, the girl – Purity (username: @NdutaSs) – narrated how a prominent youthful pastor – Ken Gomeri – allegedly tried to solicit for sex from her and her friends three years ago.

According to Purity, she – alongside two other friends, then all between 18 and 19 years old – had gone to buy dinner at a popular mall on Thika Road in June 2016 when they bumped into Pastor Gomeri; they recognized him because he previously frequented their high school to preach and coached their hockey team every so often.

After exchanging pleasantries, he allegedly offered to buy them dinner during which he spoke about “things that are being said about him online that are bothering him.”

“The first red light was on the same night, he called and asked to come over to our house at around midnight, but, it’s Pasi (Pastor), we didn’t think much about it. Next morning, we leave, so it’s Ken, his friend (man) and three of us girls, going to Nyeri in his infamous Subaru,” narrated Purity.

She added that Pastor Gomeri’s friend stopped to buy alcohol on their way to Nyeri for a hockey tournament and he (Gomeri) even offered to buy them (Purity and friends) as well but they declined.

“We decided to spend the night in Nyeri because it was really late at night. Now that’s where we started getting scared. He insisted that we’ll all sleep in one room because he didn’t have the money I guess. It had two beds so we thought it would be us girls one bed, boys together,” she stated.

Purity added that the preacher, however, declined to sleep on the same bed with his friend saying “circumcised men don’t share the same bed.”

Hence, Purity and one of her friends shared a bed with Gomeri while the third girl shared the other bed with his unidentified friend.

She further narrated how, during the course of the night, Gomeri tried to touch them inappropriately while talking about “how turned on and hard he was.”

“Next morning he continued trying to have sex with us, touching is inappropriately, talking about sex and how disappointed he was. We drove back up to Nairobi, I was dropped off first but two of my friends went with him, he was supposed to drop them off in Roysambu,” she said.

“So, they ask if (he) remembers their house in Roysambu. He says yes and it’s agreed that he’s taking them home. Next thing they knew, they were in Kasarani. He insists they need to eat supper at least. On getting to his place, it’s packed with people (his team that does mission).”

Purity further added: “This put them at ease. But then in 5 minutes everyone leaves. This just leaves them, another male and him. He gives excuse after excuse as to why they shouldn’t leave. That they need to sleep over. When they finally put their foot down he got so upset. The other male in the house ended up taking them home.”

Pastor Gomeri, who is also behind the ‘Badilika’ boot camp for high school teenagers, is yet to respond to the allegations.

We were not happy anymore – Lilian Muli speaks on split from ex-husband

Published

on

Days after K24 news anchor Betty Kyallo opened up to her Instagram followers that she is happy that her ex-husband Dennis Okari has moved on, Lilian Muli has taken a cue.

Speaking to Kalekye Mumo, Muli disclosed that her relationship with ex-husband, Moses Njuguna Kanene, came to a slow, grinding halt and they had to go their separate ways.

The Citizen TV anchor narrated that though the relationship was bliss at first, it reached a point where she felt “strangulated.”

She added that they mutually agreed to part ways and still remain friends to date.

I was young, I was a small girl. That seems like a long time ago but it was pretty romantic. He was my friend, he remain my friend to date. He is an extremely romantic gentleman and so he guided me a lot along that process, it is what it is, things didn’t work out. He is a person I respect to date

We were not happy anymore, and we just got to a place where you know we were not friends anymore, and I felt strangulated, I just felt that the Lilian I knew was getting suffocated in this environment and we mutually opted it was not working. We agreed to go separate ways. It is easier that way, there is no unnecessary drama. Once you have a child with someone really that person is your life forever,” Muli told Kalyekye.

Murder most foul: Woman denies killing her ‘mother’

Suspect is accused of stabbing elderly woman 15 times in the neck, chest and stomach

Bernadette Njoki Gachinga, 33, was adopted by Esther Wangari Kanuri at the age of three months after being dumped by her biological mother.

But, on the evening of February 23, 2014, Ms Kanuri was brutally killed by unknown assailants at her home in Kihuyo village, Nyeri town. The slain civil servant’s body was found by her husband, Michael Kanuri, lying in a pool of blood in her adopted daughter’s bedroom.

Ms Njoki turned out to be the prime suspect in the murder. It is alleged that she attacked her foster mother while she was taking tea in her living room and stabbed her more than 15 times in the neck, chest and stomach. She allegedly later dragged the body to her bedroom, locked it from the outside and escaped to Nyeri town.

Ms Kanuri, who was suffering from arthritis, had just arrived home from a church service at Kihuyo Presbyterian Church of East Africa.

Although Ms Njoki has since denied killing her foster mother, the court found that she has a case to answer.

During her defence at the High Court in Nyeri on Thursday, Ms Njoki admitted hating her foster mother. The court was told she made Ms Kanuri’s life a living hell after discovering she was not her biological mother.

Justice Abigail Mshila heard that Ms Njoki was a wild and indisciplined girl since her days in high school and was addicted to drugs like bhang and alcohol.

While being cross-examined by State Counsel Emma Gicheha and lawyer Gitonga Muthee for the deceased’s family, Ms Njoki admitted that she became errant and defiant to her foster mother after completing primary school education in 2001.

“I discovered that she was not my biological parent after snooping into a cabinet in the house that was always locked. I was 14 years then and I told my brother that we are adopted children. I became confused and escaped from home for one month to look for my biological mother but I later returned,” Ms Njoki said.

She admitted harbouring a grudge against Ms Kanuri for reasons she did not disclose. She said she was not bitter although Ms Kanuri had not told her she was adopted.

Ms Njoki is accused of stabbing her foster mother to death following an altercation caused by her indiscipline. The disagreement allegedly arose after Ms Kanuri asked her why she had not reported to her workplace in Nyeri town where she was operating a fruits parlour.

The prosecution told the court Ms Njoki, while in high school, wrote a letter to her foster father telling him how she hated her foster mother.

“Remember I wrote to you an SMS telling you that I hate mum. I was angry. I wish I got to know my real mother,” reads the letter.
