Sex escapade almost gets two teenagers lynched by angry villagers

Published

on

Two teenagers accused of engaging in sex on Wednesday narrowly escaped being lynched by an irate mob in Lalagin village in Litein town, Bureti sub-county after they were nabbed by villagers.

According to an eye witness, the girl was seen entering a house occupied by a teenage boy at around 8pm on Tuesday and neighbours became suspicious when she did not leave the house immediately but opted to spend the night there.

ARRESTED

The boy is known to sell ‘kangumus’ in the village.

Confirming the incident, Bureti sub-county police commander Felician Tengeye said area assistant chief and police officers rushed to the scene to calm down the angry members of the public following a tip off from a villager at 10am.

She added that the two minors were arrested and escorted to Litein police station where, upon interrogation, the 17-year-old boy disclosed that he completed his primary school education last year and opted to engage in making and selling ‘kangumus’ to meet his basic needs after his mother failed to raise school fees to send him to secondary school.

“Despite the two teenagers confessing that they did not engage in sex we will escort them to hospital for medical examination to confirm, ” said Ms Tengeye.

PRE-MARITAL SEX

Tengeye said she had contacted the parents of the two teenagers and the children’s department to offer appropriate counseling and monitoring of the minors in their respective schools.

“It is sad and unfortunate that parents are not monitoring their children’s movements or activities. Parents ought to take full responsibility of their children and counsel teenagers about the consequences of engaging in pre-marital sex and instill in them good values,” she said.

In an interview, the father of the teenage girl said his 16-year-old daughter, who is a Form Two student at Getarwet Day Secondary School, had gone to stay with her grandmother during the school holidays and promised to come home after completing some school assignment.

“My 16 year-old daughter is my first child. She opted to go and stay with her grandmother at Getarwet village soon after schools closed for the second term holidays. I called her yesterday since I wanted her to come and spend time with her two siblings but she told me she had some school assignment which she wanted to complete before travelling back home today,” said the father.

Bishop’s faith renewed after brush with death

Published

on

For Timothy Wambunya, Psalms 23 has gained new and special meaning.
The bishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya has been through the valley of the shadow of death after he contracted the coronavirus disease.
“I have been very fortunate to survive. It only takes a few seconds for someone to die. Do not take Covid-19 lightly because it is a rough, terrifying experience,” he warns.
Wambunya’s journey to the intensive care unit started when he landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport with one of his three sons.
“I arrived from the UK the day the government imposed the 14-day compulsory quarantine. There was confusion because nobody knew where to take us.”
The 55-year-old bishop recalls that amid the chaos at the airport, his temperature was high. He was worried about being in close contact with nearly 100 people when he was unsure about everybody’s status.
“We had no face masks. We were complaining and arguing a lot on our way to the quarantine centre, which could have led to spreading of the infection,” Wambunya says.
Developed fever
They were shuttled from the University of Nairobi to the Kenya School of Administration, then to the Kenya Medical Training Centre headquarters, where some people were admitted.
Wambunya was in a group of 20 who were finally taken to CORAT Africa in Karen at about 5pm – more than 12 hours after they landed.
“All was going well until I developed a fever. I tried not to report it because I was scared of going to some of these facilities, but the people in the centre reported me to the managers,” he says.
It had taken about six days before tests were conducted at the centre, and when the results came back he was the only one who had Covid-19.
“Never in my wildest imagination did I think I would be positive. In fact, I believed this only happened to other people.” Wambunya’s fever persisted and he developed weakness in his limbs. Soon he was unable to sleep.
The bishop was put in an ambulance and driven to Kenyatta University Referral Hospital. On arrival, nobody wanted to attend to him. He says he felt like he was under arrest. It was also during this transfer that about £2,000 (Sh265,000) he had in his pocket was stolen.
“I was put in a room, the door was closed and tape put around it. I stayed there for two days without food, water or medical attention. I later called my wife and asked her to move me because my condition was worsening and I feared I was losing my mind.” Wambunya says his wife, Gertrude, and his son moved him to the Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi where he was taken straight to the ICU.
He would remain there for the following 17 days. “I would have died had it not been for the doctors’ determination,” he states, adding that his lungs, liver and kidneys had failed.
When he came out of ICU, he could not move his limbs and had to re-learn easy tasks like walking. Fluids had to be regularly drawn from his lungs due to pneumonia.
He has, however, made steady progress and can walk about 30m and up a few steps on the staircase.
He also does not need his oxygen tank.
The cleric says he is grateful to all those who have stood with him, especially the staff at the Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi and the people who have contributed money to settle the outstanding hospital bill.
His parting shot is for Kenyans to follow the State’s guidelines, treat the disease with the seriousness it deserves, and not ostracise those who have recovered.
