The late John Mwangi Ng’ang’a alias John De’Mathew died after his ribs were fractured and his liver and pancreas damaged, an autopsy report has revealed.

The chairperson of the burial committee, Mr Muheria Kariuki, said the postmortem, which was conducted on Tuesday, revealed that the ribs of the late Benga maestro were severally damaged after the freak accident after his car hit a moving track at Blue Post in Thika.

AUTOPSY REPORT

“The autopsy report has revealed that the internal organs – that is the lungs and pancreas – were severely damaged after all the eight ribs were fractured affecting the internal organs,” Mr Muheria told the Nation.

“As a result of my examination, I formed the opinion that the cause of the death was due to chest and abdominal injuries due to blunt force trauma consistent with road traffic accident,” the report signed by pathologist Dorothy Njeru reads in part.

Muheria also announced that burial preparations of the late musician have began with meetings being held at Blue Springs, Metro Club Thika.

Mourners are also meeting at the musician’s two homes in Githingiri estate, where his first wife Sarafina Mwangi lives, and in Mukurwe home where his second wife Caroline Waithira lives.

Mr Muheria told the Nation that the deceased will be buried on Saturday at Mukurwe village with national leaders, including President Uhuru Kenyatta, expected to attend.

POLITICAL SONGS

“The burial ceremony of the late musician will be held on Saturday where President Kenyatta is expected to attend,” Muheria said.

The deceased has been mourned by leaders, including President Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto, ODM leader Raila Odinga and Governor Mwangi Wa Iria, as a man who used his talents to advise people on social-economic issues as well as entertaining them.

During his lifetime, many politicians used De’Mathew’s influence and popularity by hiring him to compose songs praising them with a view of swaying the voters.

De’Mathew played a key role in President Kenyatta’s re-election campaign after the annulment of the Presidential Elections of August 8, 2017 by the Supreme Court.

My daughter’s bank account had Sh9,000, not Sh100 Million, Waititu says

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Ferdinand Waititu, embattled Kiambu Governor, on Tuesday said that he and his family were being targeted and are victims of political propaganda.

The governor was speaking at the Senate in a plenary sitting over his impeachment. Governor Waititu blamed bloggers in Kiambu, who are creating and spreading lies about him and his family with the aim of destroying him. 

“Honorable House, you will see in this sitting, some politicians have paid bloggers to spread false stories about me and my family, they are all lies,” said Waititu.

He mentioned reports spread that detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) found KSh100 million in his daughter’s bank account, saying the reports are false and malicious.

Waititu clarified his daughter had only KSh9,000 in her bank account when EACC was investigating him over corruption reports.

The Senate has two days sitting; January 28th and 29th- to discuss Waititu’s impeachment. Waititu was impeached by members of the Kiambu County Assembly on December 19th, 2019 for abuse of office and corruption allegations. 

If the Senate upholds the MCAs decision, Waititu will lose his seat as the Kiambu County Governor.

Mysterious banners rebuking Kenya’s Judiciary crop up along Nairobi roads

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Anti-judiciary banners that were put up anonymously were found along major roads to the city Centre on Tuesday morning.

They were written in bold, all caps with different messages addressing the Kenyan judiciary for unfair rulings against the poor. 

Banners found just after Embakasi East MP Babu Owino was released on a KSh10 million cash bail in an attempted murder case where he shot Felix Orinda, alias DJ Evolve.

Kenyans online were upset with the court’s ruling, where Owino was ordered to pay bail amount in four installments of KSh2.5 million over four months.

“Akashas were free in Kenya for over four years but were jailed in two months by a USA court. We demand a working judiciary free of corrupt judges now,” a banner erected at Nyayo Stadium roundabout read.

Another on put up on a footbridge in Pangani stated: “Why is the majority of inmates in Kenya the poor?”

The one along Ladhies Road, asked: “Will Kidero, Sonko or Waititu ever step in jail for corruption?”

Commenting about the sentencing of Akasha brothers in the US two weeks ago, President Kenyatta said: “I think it is a shame on our country that we prosecuted a case against drug traffickers in our country and we couldn’t get a conviction and, within a year of them being arraigned in the United States, they have been jailed for not less than 25 years. That is something that our judiciary should come to terms with.”

Church where pastor killed his wife before committing suicide demolished

Published

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.

LEADERSHIP FEUD

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.
