TRAGIC: Deadly confrontation with boda boda riders costs lorry driver his life

Published

on

The driver of the lorry whose occupants were attacked by boda boda riders after a fight over a mobile phone on Saturday evening at Githurai, Kimbo estate in Kiambu county has died.

Mr Josephat Muriuki, who had offered two women a lift, succumbed to injuries on Wednesday at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) where he was receiving treatment.

Another unidentified man is said to have died while the two women are nursing serious injuries and staring at bills running into hundreds of thousands of shillings after being injured in the melee off Thika Road.

STOLEN PHONE

On Wednesday, police said that Mr Muriuki and a boda boda rider, who is on the run together with his fellow riders, had differed after the latter allegedly stole a phone belonging to the lorry driver.

The death of the two men and the life-threatening injuries inflicted on the two women were as a result of how all big things start small.

Here a chronology of events that led to the fatalities:

  • It all started on Saturday 13, 2018 evening when Mr Muriuki differed with a boda boda rider and accuses him of stealing a phone. He takes the rider’s motorcycle, loads it into the lorry and leaves.
  • As they always do, the boda boda rider then mobilises his colleagues about the incident and a plan to retrieve the motorcycle is launched.
  • As this goes on, two women, Anne Mukami and Minnie Waithera, who are hawkers, ask for a lift home after they are through with their work and Mr Muriuki offers to take them home. They are unaware of what he has at the back of his lorry.
  • As soon as they join the road leading to Kimbo, they notice a swarm of boda boda riders chasing after them.
  • Mr Muriuki then decides to drive to the Githurai, Kimbo Police Station but just a kilometer away, he hits a wall and the boda boda riders corner them.
  • The riders at first stone the lorry and later beat up all its occupants before leaving with the motorbike.
  • The occupants are then rushed to various hospitals in Kiambu and Nairobi counties.
  • On Sunday things are calm until Nairobi News and NTV report about the incident.
  • On Wednesday morning, police through Ruiru police commander James Ng’etich say that they have launched a manhunt for the boda boda rider.
  • On Wednesday evening, reports indicate that Mr Muriuki the lorry’s driver has died while receiving treatment at KNH.
  • The suspects are still at large.

Man accuses pastor of eloping with his wife

Published

on

A businessman from Juja Farm, KiambuCounty, has accused a pastor who presided over his wedding of eloping with his wife of 26 years.

Mr John Kanyua, a father of five, alleged the pastor supported them and even signed their marriage certificate.

Mr Kanyua claimed the pastor’s relationship with his wife started when his wife was appointed an assistant pastor of a church in Juja Farm.

“I objected Mr Kanyua’s appointment as an assistant pastor, but he (my husband) was determined to have his way. I confronted Mr Kanyua’s wife and threatened her not to play games with my husband,” said the pastor’s wife of 34 years.

The pastor’s wife says her husband soon began to invite Mrs Kanyua for family dinner.

“I confronted Mr Kanyua and asked him to keep his wife away from my husband, the two later eloped in 2015,” she added.

Mr Kanyua alleges that bishop would visit his house in the morning and spend the entire day locked with his wife in the house until he sought the intervention of the local administration and the church.

“The pastor later eloped with my wife and children and rented a house at a nearby market,” Mr Kanyua said.

Mr Kanyua alleges his parents-in-law have since asked him to accept a compensation of the dowry he paid to pave way for their daughter’s new wedding.

He alleges the pastor has informed his children of his intention to marry another wife after separating with their mother.

Mr Kanyua says he still pays school fees for his children and sends them foodstuffs.

“I won’t sit back and watch another man take away my family, I will not allow the wedding to continue,” said Mr Kanyua adding that he is ready to forgiver his wife.

The pastor’s wife says she still does not understand why her husband turned against her.

“We have passed through a lot when we started the church, I won’t allow him to marry a stranger,” she said.
