Love-struck policeman aimed rifle at barmaid, kills her workmate instead

Published

A family in Mokwerero Village, Kisii county is in agony after their kin, Dominic Oyugi, 32, was shot dead by a police officer in a pub on Thursday night.

Police Constable Joseph Mauti is said to have been frustrated after his two- weeks effort to seduce a barmaid working at the pub failed to bear fruit.

On Thursday night, he excused himself from night shift at Itumbe police station and headed to the pub armed with his official rifle.

His intention was to shoot the barmaid. However the deceased, who also works in the pub as a waiter, shielded his workmate from being shot at.

A furious Constable Mauti pumped two bullets into his stomach, killing him instantly.

Mr Evans Omayio, a cousin to the deceased, said they received news of the incident at 11pm and rushed to the scene only to find him dead.

“We are really saddened as a family, losing a young man who had not even married is something that is very painful” he said.

The mother of the deceased, Ms Alixinah Gesare, wants the culprit to be arraigned in court and charged.

Kisii county police commander Martin Kibet said Constable Mauti had requested for permission to go for supper before he went to commit the crime.

“We have received the report and the suspect is in custody awaiting completion of investigations after which he will be arraigned in court,” said the police boss.

“I urge police officers to share their problems with their immediate supervisors to avoid such incidents,” he added.

“The motive of the killing has not been known but investigation officers are on the ground to establish what transpired.”

MP wants teachers impregnating schoolgirls fired

Published

on

Head teachers in Nyanza region have been challenged to recommend sacking of rogue teachers who impregnate school pupils.

Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo told head teachers to recommend to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to sack any teacher found in sexual relationship with a pupil.

Speaking in Mbita town during Nyanza regional Kenya Primary School Heads Association (KEPSHA) annual delegates Conference, Millie expressed concerns over teenage pregnancies in the region.She said the teenage pregnancies could only be reduced if punitive measures are taken against perpetrators.

“Teachers are good but there some of them who are rogue and end up impregnating school girls. Let us not protect those spoiling the good name of teaching,” said Millie.

The MP told the head teachers to reverse the trend of transferring rogue teachers and instead sack them.“Transferring a rogue teacher means transferring a problem from one place to another. Such teachers should not be transferred but sacked,” she said

The MP challenged the Ministry of Education to prioritise retaining learners in schools for success of the 100 per cent transition policy.

Inadequate facilities

She blamed the government for not putting up enough facilities in place to ensure success of 100 per cent transition policy.

Millie said many schools were grappling with poor infrastructure as the policy is being implemented.”Schools lack enough teachers, classrooms and other important facilities which should be put in place for success of the transition,” Millie said.

She said school drop may be on the rise if the government fails to consider how it will retain learners in schools.”The government needs to come up with measures that will enhance retention of pupils in school. We need to focus on quality of education rather than quantity,” said Millie

The conference brought together hundreds of head teachers serving in Nyanza region.
