Woman Admits to Killing Baby “for Looking Like Former PM Raila Odinga” – Kenyan papers

Published

on

A woman has admitted that she killed her own child after discovering that she resembled former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Appearing before Kibera senior resident magistrate Renee Kamau, Sevelina Mwihaki Kamau made the revelation while dismissing accusations that part of her murder motive was that the eight-month-old baby declined to drink the milk she had bought her.

According to a report by The Star, the prosecution of the case told the court that after committing the offence, the woman then hid the baby for a while.

The neighbours, however, noticed that the little girl had been missing and decided to lodge a complaint at Kilimani Police Station.

The prosecution also revealed that Kamau frequently abused marijuana and that she took the drug before, during and after the pregnancy.

After listening to the case, the magistrate ordered that Kamau be taken to Mathare Mental Hospital and barred her from taking a plea.

The magistrate also denied her bond until the psychiatric exam is finalised and results presented before the court.

Kamau reportedly committed the office on February 19 this year while at her employer’s place in Riverside, Nairobi.

She revealed to the court that her native home is in Nyeri

The case is set for mention on May 13, 2019.

Diamond Platnumz’s manager Shaban Tale Tale a.k.a Babu Tale and bongo Flava artiste Hamis Mwinjuma aka Mwana FA are the newest celebrity Members of Parliament in Tanzania.

Babu Tale was declared the new Morogoro South East constituency legislator after he went unopposed while Mwana FA was declared the new Muheza constituency legislator.

Babu Tale became the CCM flagbearer after he beat Tanzania’s assistant Agricultural minister Omary Mgumbe, who was the incumbent to clinch the CCM ticket.

Mwana FA, who was vying on the ruling CCM party ticket, floored the opposition Chadema candidate Yosepher Komba, who garnered 12,034 against 47,578 votes.

In August 2020, Mwana FA was among the few lucky CCM members who successfully sought the party’s approval from a pool of 10,367 candidates facing off for 264 parliamentary seats.

John Magufuli wins second term as Tanzania’s president amid rigging claims

Published

on

Tanzania’s President John Pombe Magufuli has been re-elected for the second term, the country’s National Electoral Commission has announced.

In the results announced by National Electoral Commission chairman Judge Semitocles Kaijage in Dar es salaam on Friday, President Magufuli emerged the winner with 12,516, 252 of the total votes cast in the polls held on October 28.

His closest contender Tundu Lisu garnered 1,933,271 of the total voted cast.

President Magufuli will be awarded the winner’s certificate on November 1 in Dodoma at the National Electoral Commission’s headquarters. With the landslide victory in the October 28 polls, the president will go into his second term after improving his 2015 victory margin by 3,633,317 votes.

In 2015, he won the presidential poll by 58.46 percent of the total votes cast after garnering 882935 votes. He beat his closest challenger Edward Lowassa who garnered 6,072,848 votes.

On Thursday, Tanzania’s main opposition presidential candidate Lissu rejected the results of the vote, terming it a fraud.

At a press conference in Dar es Salaam, Lissu, who ran on the Chama Cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (Chadema), said the figures being announced by the National Electoral Commission could not be verified.

“We do not recognise what happened yesterday (Wednesday) … because it was marred by irregularities in all stages.

Lissu said his party would not accept any results from the polls and called on the masses to “take the matter in their own hands” by engaging in peaceful demonstrations.

Preliminary results showed incumbent John Magufuli was ahead of the pack as stations kept sending in their data. In some stations, Magufuli got nearly five times the vote compared to the total garnered by all the other 14 presidential contenders.

But Chadema and several other opposition politicians said the vote had been rigged in favour of the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi.

Zitto Kabwe, the party leader of ACT-Wazalendo, another opposition party, said the elections had confirmed Tanzania’s growth into a dictatorship.

BY KEVIN KOECH

Media Personality Jalang’o has been forced to intervene after Parroty Vunulu of the famous Gengetone Group Wanati accused his employer Kiss 100 of denying them an interview.

According to Jalang’o, the contact person for the Lewa hit-makers had only booked one person for the interview and that’s Mejja but unfortunately they showed up at Kiss 100 studios without him.

He added that, following Mejja’s absence, the Kiss 100 crew requested to have one person interviewed from the Group due to Covid-19 restrictions but they refused.

“Parroty Vunulu buda wewe pia utawacha hizoo…your booking them booked only Mejja not you and the team…Nyinyi kufika Kiss Mukambiwa tunaexpect Mejja..mkasema hayuko.

“Mkaambiwa basi mtu moja aiingie juu ya Covid rules za Kiss, 1 Guest…mkasema kama hamuingii wote interview ikae…sasa unaenda kutukanana wacha hizo” said Jalang’o.

On Thursday, the upcoming Gengetone Rapper had accused Kiss 100 of favoritism after their planed interview at Radio station failed to go down.

“I can’t believe our Kenyan media are still discriminating 254 Artists. Just imagine @Kiss100Kenya called us for a radio interview today 8.45am only to get there with @itskabagazi and @oneby_01 and the Producer told us that they only want @mejjagenge ati sisi hawatutambui. Very disappointed by Kiss Fm. Kidole cha Kati,” said Parroty Vunulu.
