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.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has said Kenyans on Twitter were too hostile to him that is why he left.

Speaking during the launch of the the drive for the signatures for the Building Bridges Initiative, President Uhuru Kenyatta said he would spend so much time on Twitter, going through what people were saying and all he would see were abuses which would get to him.

He said he has been listening to people and talks to them before making decisions, but going to Twitter to see what people were saying was not a pleasant experience for him. He now says he would rather spend time with his wife in the evening before sleeping and wake up to go to work.

Mimi hata huko Twitter, mimi niliondoka huko, nikaona hio kitu ni bure ni matusi tu, unakaa hapo unasoma, haulali, halafu unapiga simu, unaona vile huyo mtu amenitusi, afadhali nilale bana, nipige story na mama kidogo hapo, nilale, niamke, niende kazi, dunia iendelee,” he said.

Uhuru left Twitter in 2018 . He was most followed leader in Sub-Saharan Africa on Twitter with more than three million followers.

CCTV footage has emerged showing the moment a man stole a laptop from a house in a city flat.

The footage, captured last week, shows the unidentified male masquerading as a tenant of the flat and waiting as a tenant opens the gate door before he follows her in.

The man then starts going around the flat looking for any unlocked doors.

The suspect is seen moving floor after floor until he finally finds an unlocked door.

He then gets in and hastily makes away with a bag with what is understood to be a laptop.

Mr Muriithi, the landlord of Mufu Heights, which is located along Mirema Road in Nairobi, suspects that the man captured on CCTV could be working for a moving company.

Spotted in the apartment

He said that it was the second time the man had been spotted in the apartment. In the first incident, a tenant lost a wristwatch.

“We suspect that he works for a moving company and he helped a tenant to either move in or out and he came back and surveyed the building sometime in September. He has returned and a tenant has lost a laptop,” Mr Mureithi said.

He added that the victim had left the house without locking the door because his wife had forgotten her keys in the house.

He came home, found his friend in bed with his wife, picked up a panga and murdered them in cold blood before handing himself over to the police.

At least that is what a 40-year-old suspect only identified as Lorumeta wants the police to believe after making a deranged and shocking entrance to Karuna Police Station while brandishing a bloodied machete with a murderous look in his eyes and babbling incoherently.

The incident has left residents of Karuna village in Moiben Sub-county in shock amid claims of a salacious love affair between the man’s wife and his friend.

Both Lorumeta and his friend were employed as casual labourers at Kaptebei Farm, locals said.

Members of the public who had gone to seek services at the station were forced to scamper to safety as police disarmed the suspect before locking him up in the cells.

Motive of murder 

On interrogation, Lorumeta told police he was fed up with his cheating wife’s shameless actions.

Confirming the Saturday afternoon incident, County Police Commander Ayub Ali said the bodies of Nancy Cheruto and Cheruiyot Lomorian, which had deep cuts, were taken to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary awaiting a postmortem examination.

The police boss said investigations are underway to establish the facts. He said the suspect will be charged in court as soon as the investigations are complete.

“For now, the motive of this killing is yet to be known. We are not going to speculate as to the cause of this shocking murder until the investigations are complete,” said Mr Ali.

He added that police cannot rely on the allegations of the suspect until they conduct in-depth investigations.
