Compassionate well-wishers have come through for a 20-year-old girl who has been walking 10km almost every single day for the past nine months to see the body of her dead mother.

Maureen Mukulu lost her mother nine months ago but, being the only child and jobless, she was unable to pay Kitengela Sub county Hospital Mortuary a fee of Sh20,000.

“I walked to the morgue every single day hoping that a Good Samaritan would help me bury my mum. I also wanted to know that she is well taken care off there. I just had to make sure that her body is not thrown all over the place,” Maureen told Nairobi News on Wednesday.

Her plight was highlighted by a Twitter user and hours later the tweep announced that the money had been raised.

“ I am happy that I can now bury my mother. I have cleared the pending bill, someone else bought a coffin, and we have paid where she will be buried in Kajiado. The only thing left is her burial cloth,” a relieved Maureen said.

Maureen is now planning for her mother’s burial which is scheduled for June 28, 2019 at a public cemetery in Kajiado.

Nyeri man, 88, who killed son freed

Published

on

An 88-year-old man suspected to have shot and killed his son with arrows following an altercation has been released by the High Court on a Sh500,000 bond with a similar surety.

Mr Francis Mwangi Karebe was released by Justice Abigail Mshilla after a favourable pre-bail report indicated that his family and neighbours were willing to accommodate him and pay for his bail.

Mr Karebe is accused of murdering his 42-year-old son, Simon Macharia on October 13, 2019 at their home in Peter Ciira village Mathira East sub-county, Nyeri.

The pre-bail report filed in court by Ms Faith Nzivulu indicated that there was a long-standing strained relationship between Mr Karebe and the deceased, who was alcoholic.

“The victim had separated with his wife and it was not the first time they had an altercation but it was never suspected it would take the ugly turn. The accused lost his wife five months ago,” stated Ms Nzivulu.

In the report, the family said Mr Karebe’s continued stay at the police remand and his subsequent absence at home caused them sleepless nights.

“They are willing to accept him back, his absence is causing them sleepless nights,” the report stated.

The villagers described the accused as a peace-lover and a mediator. “Mr Karebe is aged and ailing, he has blood pressure and is currently on medication. He is not a flight risk,” said Ms Nzivulu.

The prosecution led by Ms Emma Gicheha did not oppose the bail application. The state counsel also indicated that the accused was unlikely to interfere with the prosecution witnesses.

 “The accused is hereby advised to observe timeliness on both hearing and mention dates of the case. He should not interfere with witnesses and must be of good conduct during the bond period. On breach of the terms the bond will be cancelled,” said Justice Mshila.

The trial will start on February 10, 2019.

Why Amos Wako was banned from setting foot on US Soil

Published

on

The US has banned Busia Senator Amos Wako, his wife Flora Ngaira and son Julius from entering the country and doing business with it over corruption allegations while he was attorney-general.

In a statement, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo also banned Mr Wako’s wife Flora Ngaira, and son, Julius Wako.

This means that Mr Wako, wife and son will not be allowed to visit America or transact any business in that country with companies affiliated to Americans.

“Today (Monday), the Department designates former Kenyan Attorney General Amos Sitswila Wako due to his involvement in significant corruption,” said the statement that was released on Monday evening.

Mr Pompeo said the designation was made under Section 7031(c) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and related programs appropriations Act, 2019 (Div. F, P.L. 116-6), as carried forward by the continuing appropriations Act, 2020 (Div. A, P.L. 116-59).

Section 7031(c) provides that, in cases where the Secretary of State has credible information that officials of foreign governments have been involved in significant corruption, those individuals and their immediate family members are ineligible for entry into the United States.

The law also requires the Secretary of State to publicly or privately designate such officials and their immediate family members.

“Today’s action sends a strong signal that the United States is a valuable partner in Kenya’s fight against corruption.  Economic prosperity for all Kenyans is only possible by defeating the scourge of corruption, which also requires a functional, fair, and transparent criminal justice system,” said Mr Pompeo

He added that the United States will continue to stand with all Kenyans as they strive to curb and punish corruption in Kenya.

Mr Wako may still be allowed onto US soil if he visits as a member of the Kenyan delegation to the UN meetings or if the UN invites him, even though his movement could be restricted.
