Another Kenyan living in the US dies of suspected drowning

Published

on

The body of another young Kenyan living in the US was on Sunday found floating in the water at the Nevins Bird Sanctuary in Methuen, Massachusetts.

Two people walking on the trail found the body and went to the nearby Methuen police station to report the incident.

CAUSE OF DEATH

Given the proximity to the sanctuary, Massachusetts State Police troopers were called and secured the scene within 20 minutes while they waited for state police to arrive and remove the body.

The man has been identified as 26-year-old Joseph Thuo Kanyoko of Lowell, Massachusetts.

Methuen Police Chief Joseph Solomon said the cause of death will be determined once the medical examiner performs an autopsy, but said that foul play is not suspected.

Meanwhile, family and friends are meeting daily at 6pm for prayers at 130 Bowers St, Lowell, MA 01854.

Last month, Chris Atema Masakah, 35, who was the son to Ikolomani MP Bernard Shinali, drowned in a swimming pool in Arizona State while trying to save a minor.

DROWNED

Earlier the same month, a Kenyan drowned in a lake in Baltimore, Maryland just three months after migrating to the United States.

Baltimore County fire officials said people playing on a nearby basketball court heard someone yelling from the pond and ran over to help.

The man, who was later identified as 26-years old John Omari Hassan, who was rushed to Franklin Square Hospital in critical condition, where he later passed on.

Authorities could not determine how the deceased ended up into the water because there were signs posted nearby saying swimming is prohibited at the pond.

Hassan graduated from Kenyatta University in October 2016 and had migrated to Baltimore in April 2019. He hails from Nakuru county.

CAPSIZED KAYAK

In another drowning incident involving a Kenyan in the US, a family’s hope for a better life was dashed in April after their son drowned in a lake accident in Washington, forcing them to instead start making funeral plans seven months after landing in the US.

The 35-year-old Bonventure Alfred Ng’ang’a Gitau drowned in Lake Chelan in Chelan County when an inflatable kayak that he was travelling in with a friend capsized.

Gitau had left Kenya for Washington in September 2018 in search of greener pastures and was working in construction to upgrade the economic situation of his family back in Kenya. He left behind a 3-year-old son.

Local police said the deceased, who hailed from Mwiki in Kasarani area of Nairobi, was not wearing a personal floatation device at the time of the incident in the cold lake water.

“I knew his music before he introduced himself as my father. It was a strange thing to process.”

She wrote,

“How do you mourn a man you had barely known? How do you mourn the man you called biological father but fought so much with him for the title of Dad that he wanted, but you felt he was yet to earn?”

Adding,

“What many never knew is Jimmy Wayuni is my biological father. And now he’s gone.”

Jimmy lost his life yestsrday night in a tragic car accident along Thika Road.

Mercy paid tribute to the fallen icon.

15yrs ago I packed my bags and left for Canada. A foreign land, in the middle of winter, to pursue a dream. My parents were my biggest cheerleaders- my father especially taught me the importance of having an education,’ she wrote in part.

She continued,

10yrs ago I graduated against all odds with my BA in Music from Ambrose University college. Over the last 10, God has continued to show me that he is the giver of dreams and if we trust his leading, he allows us to be more than we could ask, or imagine. Imela papa!.

In a recent interview, the mother of one revealed that her late father Professor Manundi forced her to study hard, though she wasn’t serious with her education.

She said after returning from the USA,

AFTER THE SUMMER CAMP, I CAME BACK TO KENYA AND joined UNIVERSITY. I STARTED BECAUSE I DID NOT FINISH THE COURSE. MY GRADES WERE GOOD, I APPRECIATED AND ENJOYED IT, BUT I KNEW MY HEART WAS TAGGING ME IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION ON CAMPUS, I WAS ACTIVELY SINGING. IF THERE WAS AN EVENT I WAS THERE. EVERYBODY ON CAMPUS KNEW THERE’S A GIRL ON CAMPUS CALLED KAMBUA WHO SINGS. I KNEW MUSIC IS WHAT I WANTED TO DO AND DO IT SERIOUSLY.

“Ivanna prefers her dad to me,” Betty Kyallo speaks co-parenting

Published

on

Betty Kyallo´s YouTube channel has only been giving us more insight into the media personality´s personal and family life.

This time, she was open to discuss her celebrity crush and how co-parenting with Dennis Okari has been fairing.

The bubbly TV girl spent the day running errands with her youngest sister, Gloria Kyallo and her close friend, Karen.

Betty was taking us on a tour to the carpet center that is handling her beauty parlor´s renovation furniture sets, as she preps to relocate to a much bigger space.

On their way to the place, Betty revealed just how much of a daddy´s girl Ivanna is, always opting to go out with Dennis Okari than with her.

Imagine Ivanna has actually refused to leave the house. She only does it with her dad. Mimi, okay she did once but I don´t know why she refuses to go with me. I even told her today morning, ´mummy, let´s go for a drive´… but imagine she refused.

Betty Kyallo´s daughter, Ivanna

Betty´s co-parenting with celebrated NTV journalist, is proving to be pretty smooth and not much of a big deal after she revealed that today morning, Ivanna was set for a date with her dad, Okari.

My baby is becoming a sweet little girl 🎈🎈 She chooses what to wear. She likes dresses and track suits just like me❤️ . She chose what to wear today because she had a date with her dad.

Unfortunately, Ivanna is already all grown now and is no longer in the business of warm cuddles or sweet kisses from her mother and this makes Betty sad.

She doesn’t like cuddles anymore. I have to beg for kisses, she gives hugs easily and she doesn’t like oats anymore😆. I’m happy God Gave me a second chance with her.

Celebrity crush

Away from that, Betty was previously spotted snuggling with an alleged Somali guy months after her breakup with Okari.

But for a while now, we are no longer seeing the arms, legs or even curled up hair of this guy taking over Betty´s heart.

During their trip around Nairobi, the three girls were caught on camera drooling over random hunk guys on the streets.

Betty bluntly jerked:

That´s a handsome guy. Wah! have you seen him? Heh! he´s handsome my gosh! Kama kitu ni nzuri, sema. He has a kid, wrapped on his chest as he pulls the stroller and if he has a kid, he´s good. That´s a sure pass.

On a different occasion, Betty gushed over a passerby hinting that the guy would be  good match for her younger sister.

Eh! Cheki ule chali, Gloria, he´s your type.

With Gloria sweetly admitting:

Eeh…he´s short.

Gloria Kyallo

Betty revealed Gloria loves the short chubby type. In other words, the abujubuju type. Nice one!

It then came a time when everyone had their chance to name their celebrity crush, whether locally or global. A shy Betty confessed her liking has always been for renowned ragga and dancehall artist, Redsan since way back.

Quite jittery and shy about her crush, the single mom fumbled a bit before admitting:

Aki please, if you have a wife or girlfriend, please don´t come for me. I´ve always had a crush on Redsan but please don´t make him watch me say this, please. There´s a way he just seats, that muscular, serious and swaggish pose and he´s like ´what´s up B?´ That guy looking hot! Even though my dreams didn´t come true, that guy is my guy. Redsan unakuanga umeweza.

Kenyan dancehall artist, Redsan

Further brushing off:

Probably he is seeing someone and plus it´s not like crushes end up being your better half anyway. Crushes don´t come to be.

For Gloria, turns out, she´s head over heals for Stivo Simple Boy. Not for anything else, but for his music, with the random lyrics that come with that sharp, wild, girly tone.

For Karen, NTV journalist Mark Masai floored them all, especially because of his voice.

Regards who is currently in her life, Betty stated:

You´ll be seeing him soon.
