Church where pastor killed his wife before committing suicide demolished



A church in Mombasa where a pastor stunned his congregation by stabbed his wife to death and then slit his own throat two weeks ago has been demolished.

The Ground for God’s Gospel Ministries at Chembani village in Kiembeni was pulled down on Sunday in the presence of relatives of the deceased.

Local administrators supervised the demolition of the church as congregants and family members of Elisha Misiki Nyadoya and Anne Mughoi watched.

According to the police, on the fateful day, the pastor left his front row seat and approached his wife, who was also a senior pastor, on the pulpit and stabbed her with one of the knives he had hidden in an envelope.

Misiko died instantly from his stab wounds and Mughoi died at a local hospital a few hours later, police said.


The couple had been engaged in a long-running feud over the ownership and leadership of the church.

The pastor had accused his spouse, a mother of four, of plotting to edge him out of the church leadership which he claimed he had founded.

Misiko left a 17-page suicide note in which he accused Mughoi of changing ownership of the church to bear her name alone.

Gym instructor dies tragically just hours after jokingly posting about death



A renown Kenyan gym instructor died hours after jokingly posting about death on Facebook.

Zablon Osiemo was involved in a fatal road accident of January 26, hours after he uploaded the said post.

In his last post, Osiemo laughed off the ignorance of those who keep asking him about the financial benefits of going to the gym.

He ended the post in jest by saying “ignorance will keep Kenyans unfit and kill them faster than Coronavirus.”


Genge rapper Hubert Nakitare aka Nonini was among the first people to eulogise the gym instructor.

In his post, Nonini said he and Osiemo had embarked on a 30-days fitness challenge and were only on the second day when the latter died.

“Death is so unfair. How does this happen to my friend Zablon Osiemo. Rest well brother, we had 28 days to go on our fitness challenge,” Nonini wrote on Facebook.

Osiemo was a Fitness instructor, owner and founder of Zablonfitness. He was also a former participant in the Mr Kenya Body Building Championship where he emerged fifth in 2015.

He also held the title for Nairobi’s lightweight category and was once the unbeaten Kenya lightweight champion.
