Owner of killer Precious Talents school arrested

Published

on

Precious Talents School proprietor Moses Wainaina was on Thursday evening arrested over the collapse a building that left eight pupils dead and 64 others injured.

Mr Wainaina spent the night at the Kabete Police Station pending arraignment today.

Before his arrest, government shut down the school and directed that the pupils be transferred to Ngong Forest Primary School, Jamhuri Primary School and Riruta Satellite Primary School.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha, said the closure follows recommendations by a task force that was set up to look into the safety of the pupils after the tragedy.

The school was registered to admit only 340 learners but the number had ballooned to more than 800.

This, according to the CS, was a violation of the guideline that was set for the school.

“The high enrollment and lack of safe physical facilities with non-compliance of qualified teaching staff, sanitation facilities thus render the registration facility null and void,” Magoha said on Thursday.

IMMEDIATELY

On Monday, when visiting the school immediately after the incident, the Education CS noted that the other classrooms in the school were in stable condition.

“In my most humble opinion, the classes are stable, but you notice somebody went and built another storey on top of a temporary structure,” Magoha said.

“If you go ahead and do so without anybody’s approval, I think we should be fair to each other including being fair to the government. If the owners of this school had remained with a single-storey building this accident should not have occurred. If we were working in an ideal situation, they should have come to ask for approval from the ministry which I can guarantee you they would not have gotten.”

He had directed the pupils to remain at home for a week to allow for the initial investigations

On Wednesday, Magoha also announced the closure of St. Catherine Bombolulu Primary school, which according to him was in a similar state as the collapsed Precious Talents School in Ng’ando Dagoretti.

“I have been to the structure, I have been to every room, and basically there is no difference from the structure that collapsed,” he said.

Kenyans react to video of man filmed washing fruits with filthy trench water

Published

on

Netizens have been left dumbstruck after a video emerged online showing a man washing fruits with filthy water inside a trench along a busy road in Nairobi.

The undated video, which went viral on social media on Wednesday, shows the man busy washing the fruits as pedestrians walk by.

What is even startling is that after washing his fruits ‘clean’ and carefully placing them by the roadside, the man then proceeds to wash his feet and sandals with the very same trench water.

The video has left some Kenyans scandalized on realizing that they had at some point bought fruits along the same road and eaten them without washing them.

There are those who insist the man is a hawker and he has in the past been seen washing vegetables and fruits in dirty trenches along city roads.

Others dismissed him as either a street boy or a mad man.

“I think ni street boy nizake zakukula sio za kuuza, wacha kuharibia hawkers soko,” Saloome SOSO commented.

“Hadi nyi watu wote hamwoni huyo ni chokosh hawa digital,” KT 9 said.

“I should be dead by now,” Great Ngugi commented.

“Jesus… No wonder people are ill left right and center,” said terry trizah.

“Kwani hata mwenyewe haoni aibu? Anaona amepata maji ya free😕😕😕😕😕,ndio sababu magonjwa hazitapungua pthooo 😢😢,” Esty 1248 wrote.

“Maybe water rationing currently being experienced in many parts of the city has forced the man to do so,” Festus Chuma commented.

How I got pregnant for my mpango wa kando after years of trying to conceive

Published

on

Women sometimes seek abortion services, especially after engaging in sexual tirades with lovers  without thinking of the repercussions.

Women especially those in marriage have been increasingly seeking these services.

*Veronicah  discovered that her blood sister was having an affair with her husband.

“Whenever my husband went out of town for conferences, my sister would also go for interviews.

When she confronted her husband, their argument snowballed into a physical abuse with the husband threatening to involve Carols parents if she continued with the allegations.”

To avoid bringing shame to the family, Carol dropped the matter but two months later she got the shock of her life after discovering that she was pregnant.

What did she do? You guessed it..abortion.

8cec540fd164450c992fd3c62c55b1d6She adds

“The thought of bringing another child into this disgusting situation was revolting .” she sought the services of a ‘Terminator ‘ in Umoja Estate, a decision she has never regretted.

But what happens in a situation where the woman is being pressured by her spouse to abort? Sad isn’t it?

*Mary on the other hand disclosed that the idea of a termination came from her husband, a matter that threatened their marriage.

“My husband did not share the same dream as I to have a family and settle down.

The news of my pregnancy did not appeal to him and even threatened to leave me if I  kept the baby.

He did not share my dreams and he did not want to be tied down by a baby even though he was financially stable.”

She continues

“Eventually I gave in to his demands, we met a doctor in town and in just 30 minutes my pregnancy was gone.

I do not think that the marriage will ever be the same again. I no longer view him as the same man I idolized.”

Patricia has not yet been able to conceive due to complications that arose after the termination.

”The walls of my womb are too thin and I have already suffered two miscarriages. We are seeking professional help but my husband is fully to blame for this.”

For Nancy Kaloki a stay at home mum, constant quarrels due to childlessness made her seek solace on social media.

“My husband used to allege that multiple abortions during my youth were the reason behind my childlessness.

I found comfort on facebook and before long  I started getting a lot of male attention.

I started going for dates with them and before long I was going to their houses for ‘chats’.

Before long Nancy realized she was expectant

“I couldn’t believe it. I had desperately yearned for a baby for years.

But getting what my heart desired turned out to be a huge mistake I opted to abort.’

Even though Nancy’s husband never found out she is still paying for her mistake as she has never been able to conceive yet her biological clock is ticking, at age 35, she is running out of time.

Women are however not the ones who are to blame as men at times are involved.

*Dr Ken from Eldoret stated that the statistics are true.

‘I AM A DOCTOR FROM ELDORET, WE PASS THROUGH HELL.

YESTERDAY A MARRIED WOMAN AND HER HUSBAND VISITED ME (45 YEARS) SHE HAS 7 KIDS THEY WANTED TO CARRY OUT AN ABORTION ON WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THEIR 8TH CHILD.

SHE WAS FIVE MONTHS PREGNANT. I ASKED THEM WHAT THEY WERE WAITING FOR.

I TOLD THEM TO GO TALK FIRST.
