Whirlwind affair with tragic end



The relationship started off as a waitress-customer friendship in a pub, bloomed into a passionate two-week affair and ended in tragedy.

Both lovers were found dead in a house they shared in Njoro. The memories of Eunice Wambui, 19, and police constable Cornelius Tallam, 28, are fresh in Piave, a small centre next to Piave Patrol Base, where Tallam killed his lover last year.

Relatives and neighbours still cringe when asked to relive the incident.On November 6, villagers woke to the chilling news that the hitherto inseparable lovebirds were no more. Tallam had pumped four bullets into Wambui before shooting himself.

Wambui’s body lay on a bag next to the bedroom door, her throat slit, while her lover’s body leaned against a wall next to the door, his gun, supported by his legs, still pointed at his throat. On the table was an untouched plate of ugali and meat stew.

“We still cannot comprehend what happened. Everyone knew them as love birds. They were inseparable; they ate from one plate and spent almost the entire day together. It is one of those mysterious incidents we are still trying to unravel months later,” Stephen Maina, a relative to Wambui, said.The couple had last been sighted at village centre sharing a plate of French fries.

They also bought meat and walked home, holding hands.“Theirs was a deliriously happy affair. They held hands wherever they walked and ate from one plate. Not even once were they seen fighting or disagreeing in public. But even if they disagreed, Tallam should have been mature given his experience in handling even tougher situations. Why did he choose to spray her with bullets?” Jecinta Wangare, a relative to Wambui, asked.

Wambui’s father, Joseph Njoroge, said nothing pained him more than receiving news of his daughter’s death.

“It is traumatising. We buried our daughter and we have never followed up the case. Even if we did, who do we follow up with when the assailant also killed himself?” Mr Njoroge posed.

Relatives said Wambui and her sister left their Subukia home to live with an aunt in Njoro as they looked for work. Through the help of their uncle Stephen Maina, they both got jobs in a pub and butchery in the same building.Here is when Wambui met Tallam after two weeks and the pair hit it off.

“They met the same day I was picking up the two girls in the evening. They seemed to like each other and within a few days, they visited us here at home. Wambui also looked happy when Tallam took her to his rural home to introduce her to his parents,” Mr Maina said.

Wangare said there was speculation Tallam had an estranged wife who contacted Wambui. “It seemed she (Wambui) was mad at Tallam but he did not want her to leave him.”

Nick Mutuma: I do romantic movies for my female admirers



Babe magnet, actor and film producer Nicholas Munene Mutuma better known as Nick Mutuma, has explained why he makes romantic movies.

The hunk, whose good looks drive many women crazy, says he develops such movies because of the ladies.


Drawing comparison from American rapper and actor 50 Cent, Mutuma has revealed that he studied his market and realised most of his clients are ladies and as such, he is compelled to create or feature in content that they like and would want to see from him.

“50 Cent has done the take. What works with 50 is that he tells stories that are relatable to his target market. He knows what people want to see. So even for me a very common question I always get is ‘why do I always make romantic comedy’, ‘why do you always make movies that are more female skewed’. You know it’s understanding your market. These are the people who put food on my table,” Mutuma explained in a conversation with radio presenter Shaffie Weru.


When asked how he keeps at bay ladies who are always thirsting for his attention the 6 foot lady-killer said he prefers staying at home if he ain’t working.

He was however quick to put a disclaimer stating that he is in a relationship with actress Bridget Shighadi.

“Every time I talk about this stuff she is normally upset because she is a very private person. She doesn’t like her stuff out there. I’m in a relationship, I’m a dad and I’m gonna leave it at that,” the actor said.

Mutuma and Bridget have been together for years now and are blessed with a two-year-daughter Dua.

Woman throws her three children into River Nzoia



A 24-year-old woman dumped her two children into River Nzoia in Lugari Constituency, Kakamega County last night seconds before jumping into the river with a third child on her back.

The woman who has been identified as Winnie, left her sister’s house where she had been staying at 9 pm duping her children that she is taking them to the shop. It is when they got to the bridge that she asked the children to close their eyes before pushing them one after the other into the roaring mass of water moments after taking the same leap to her death.

One girl survived after clutching on to a branch a distance from where she plunged into the water. The standard two girl explained the horror when she called for help holding on a weak branch.

“She grabbed our hands and jumped in the river. I reach in the middle of the river and got hold of a stick and lurched to it. I was crying,” said the little girl in tears.

According to Alice Magoma, the sister to Winnie, she had come to stay with her after some small disagreement with her husband.

“I didn’t see any problems with her. She had been staying with me for about a week and the husband even came to pick her up yesterday but they disagreed over a certain text message. I asked him to come another day when she has cooled down,” explained Alice.

Alice explains that her sister was Okay in the evening, relaxing and chatting. She had left her to cook supper only to come back and find her and the kids not present in the house.

“That’s the last time I saw my sister. She didn’t tell me anything. She didn’t tell me her plan. I thought she was going to sleep at the neighbour’s place. I was wrong.”

The standard two girl who survived was found by Joseph Maleso, the chairman of the Nyumba kumi who took her to his home, gave her some tea and later took her to the police station where they recorded a statement.

The bodies of the woman and her two children are yet to be found.

Autopsy shows Churchill Show comedian Kasee was poisoned




An autopsy report released on Friday, July 3, from the Chiromo mortuary has revealed the late comedian Kasee was poisoned.

The news was made public by by Kenya Comedians Society chairman, Ken Waudo, who quashed reports linking Kasee’s death to alcoholism and depression.

According to Waudo, the deceased, born Joseph Musyoki, received a call from friends on Sunday, June 28, early morning to join them for drinks at a local joint.

He then left his wife and kids to honour his friend’s wishes but never returned home.

“Kasee was chilling at home with his wife and kids when he was called to go hang out with friends and have some drinks.

“He later felt unwell saying his stomach was disturbing him and even called his dad to inform him of the same,” Waudo said.

Kasee had promised to call his dad immediately he got home but never did.

Waudo said at the place the comedian was found dead, there were some kids who revealed he had complained of stomach problems and decided to take a nap before going home.

This was the exact place that the comedian was confirmed dead on the evening of Sunday, June 28.

“It was around 6 in the evening and cops who arrived on the scene confirmed he was dead.

“The examiner said his brain was clear and nothing to do with depression and his liver was not that bad, so he was probably poisoned,” Waudo added.

Waudo also revealed investigations were ongoing.

Kasee is survived by two children and a wife.
