Car thieves making a killing in city

Published

on

Police in Nairobi are grappling with a new breed of car thieves who are just interested in harvesting vehicle parts and abandoning the shells in desolate locations in the outskirts of the city.

The thieves are targeting car parts and accessories that they are selling to garages and motorists looking for spare parts

Nairobi News has established that the new phenomena is costing motorists, insurance companies and car rental companies millions.

Rental car companies have been particularly hard hit with hundreds of newer model cars targeted.

One victim,  Abraham Munga, said he had parked his car outside the house of a friend during a visit. He returned to find a skeleton of his car. The car’s wheel caps, side mirror covers, headlights and all the doors were missing.

Mr James Onsando underwent a similar ordeal. He left home for work, and while stuck in traffic, someone approached with an offer for the break lights.

“Bro sinikutafutie hiyo taa ya nyuma halafu utanilipa kitu kidogo,” he told him.

Mr Onsando dismissed the man, assuming his break lights were still intact. But the man was persistent, prompting him to get out to check.

“I was shocked, someone had removed them so well, to date I cannot explain what really happened, but I’m sure I left my house with both break lights,” he said.

Mr Onsando exchanged phone numbers with the man who promised to get him the lights. Two hours later, he received a call and bought the lights at half price.

For Mr Josiah Ondieki, city motorists are their own enemies because they allow the thieves to sell them car parts at cheap prices.

He says if motorists can dismiss such people then the business of car parts theft will reduce.

“They sell the parts cheaply after they have stolen from other genuine motorists which is not right,” he said.

Kenyan man deported from the US on arrival at the airport, seeks help to reunite with his Patients

Published

on

An online petition to help a Doctor of Kenyan descent who was deported from the United States two weeks ago has been launched.

According to the petition seen by ksnmedia.com,  Dr. Alexander Ondari  was returning to the US to complete his last year as a resident physician at the University of Texas Medical Branch on July 6th, when he was denied entry.

He is now seeking the intervention of the US Embassy in Nairobi. Below is the Petition as prepared by one Georgia Colleluori:

 

On July the 6th, Dr. Alexander Ondari was returning to USA to complete his last year as a resident physician at University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. However, he was barred from entering, as the immigration officer at the airport (Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport) did not honor the valid J1 Visa that he had. Unfortunately, he was deported back to Kenya where he is right now. Currently, all depends on the USA Embassy in Kenya to grant him a new J1 Visa. 

Dr Ondari’s constant efforts as a physician, together with his charitable character, is critical to the well-being of the communities he lives and serves in. Dr Ondari’s objective is to bring value to the US, an aim that has been already accomplished during the last 17 years as a non-immigrant visa holder. It’s is thus a honor to support his efforts to obtain a J1 visa so that he can serve his patients and continue to improve the health of America.
