Magistrate, policemen in custody over lawyer murder

Published

on

A serving magistrate was yesterday detained by police in the ongoing investigation into the killing of city lawyer Robert Chesang.

Senior Resident Magistrate Pauline Omungala Maisy Chesang, who is based in Nyeri, was held after she went to the Athi River Police Station where she had been summoned by police. Maisy is Chesang’s widow.

Detectives said the magistrate and three other suspects, who are already in custody, will be presented in court today where police will seek orders to continue detaining them as investigations continue.

Lawyer Assa Nyakundi yesterday said he would represent Maisy. The magistrate’s arrest follows days of investigations into Chesang’s killing in Lukenya, Machakos County.

The lawyer was shot and killed by gunmen who raided his house at Moke Gardens in broad daylight on February 17.

Machakos Directorate of Criminal Investigations head George Kisaka confirmed that Maisy had been detained.

The three suspects in custody are two serving police officers and a retired officer.

The retired officer, who left the service last year as commissioner of police, was arrested in Samburu on Saturday before being brought to Nairobi.

The two officers, who are attached to Mutuine Police Station in Dagoretti, Nairobi, came under scrutiny after it emerged that the car used to ferry the killers to Chesang’s house belongs to one of them.

One officer was arrested on Wednesday while the second one surrendered on Saturday at Athi River Police Station after learning that he was wanted.

The team investigating the shooting said they have strong evidence linking the officers to the killing.

Police said they recovered seven spent cartridges at the crime scene. Two cartridges were found in the house and the rest lay outside a window.

Genge rapper Mejja finds love again after being dumped by his wife via text

Published

on

Genge rapper Mejja is in love again after enduring the heartbreak of being ditched by his wife of five years through a text message.

Sometime last year, Mejja, who makes the trio of The Kansoul group, revealed that he battled depression and at one point contemplated taking away his life.

This was after his wife of five years and the mother of his daughter dumped him via text message despite them not having any misunderstanding, according to the artiste.

“We had not disagreed. Actually we were so happy. I was in Thika and I got her message asking me if I had arrived well. I told her yes and the next thing she told me was ‘move on with your life’” Mejja revealed in a past interview.

The artiste said that all his efforts to salvage his marriage never bore fruit as his estranged wife kept ignoring his calls.

The situation drove Mejja into depression and for a whole year he struggled to come to terms with the reality of his collapsing marriage.

IN LOVE AGAIN

However, Mejja now seems to have moved on.

On Sunday, he formally introduced his new girlfriend to his fans via Instagram.

Mejja shared a picture of him and his new bea accompanied with a very telling caption.

“Beauty and The Beast. Nikipeleka msupa Pango kununua digital kwa vaite. ALipenda Mjeshi hivo hivo Ghettoh lifestyle na ma ghettoh queen Watu wa comments najua mtaanza story ya mali ya umma huyu ni private property lol…” Mejja wrote.

Did Ruto kick out journalists, yet again? – AUDIO

Published

on

An audio recording of someone who sounds like the Deputy President William Ruto chasing away journalists is making the rounds on social media.

In the audio, the person is heard telling asking the journalists to leave.

“Bado tuko na watu ya magazeti? Watu ya magazeti mnafanya nini hapa? Toeni hii maTV yenu hapa. Mnatufwata mpaka usiku? Tokeni hapa!” the speaker in the audio clip says.

It is not clear when, where nor if the person speaking is indeed the Deputy President.

The audio has emerged just days after the DP was caught on camera shooing off journalists who were covering the Ilchamus traditional wedding ceremony in Baringo County, an event he presided over.

In an incident that happened on August 10, 2019 in Baringo county, the DP interrupted his speech and asked the journalists to move back to give the crowd a clear view of the speakers at the wedding.

UNWANTED COVERAGE

Ruto went as far as making it clear to the journalists that he was not there to address them, but rather members of the public gathered at the venue.

“Na nyinyi watu wa nini, mumekuwa wengi hapa ketini chini watu wanataka kuangalia huko nyuma. Nyinyi tokeni hapa. Msonge nyuma. Wakae mbali mbali ndio wananchi waone. Kwani mnafikiri nimekuja kuongea na nyinyi ama nimekuja kuongea na wananchi,” Ruto said while addressing the journalists.

According to journalists who covered the event, the DP’s security personnel pushed and roughed them up leaving only those working with the Deputy President’s Press Service.
