Confessed serial killer: I’d kill any woman who leaves me

Mustafa Idd, the man who last week walked into a police station in Moi’s Bridge, Uasin Gishu County, and told officers that he had just killed his girlfriend and dismembered her, had for months fantasised about killing women and cutting their bodies into pieces, interviews with his friends and family members show.

The Saturday Nation spent this week piecing together the story of one of the most macabre killings in recent Kenyan history.

Our team learnt that Idd, who is in custody after a court in Eldoret allowed police to detain him for 20 days to allow for further investigations and a mental assessment, had for the past five months been talking about how he would kill and dismember any woman who dared leave him for another man.

He told his close friends that he would then move around Moi’s Bridge with the body parts packed in a suitcase.

And then it happened, with such barbarity that it appeared to be straight from a horror movie.

Idd, who is facing another murder charge and is out on a Sh1 million bond, killed his 21-year-old girlfriend Emma Wanyotta and cut up her body into pieces, according to his confession to police.

Ms Sheila Wanyotta, a sister of the murdered student, told the  Saturday Nation that Idd had earlier this year coolly told her that no woman could get the better of him, and that he would go to any length, including killing, to prove his point.

“He kept saying that women are weak people,” remembered Sheila of the day she visited Idd, a village carpenter, at his family home earlier this year.

DISMEMBERED
“He said it was so easy to strangle women, and that were the woman he is accused of killing to ever resurrect he would get a panga and cut her into pieces to ensure she is ‘properly dead”.

Sheila did not report the confession and threat to anyone, including the police, because she believed that Idd was just bluffing, as he always did about so many other things. Now she wishes she had.

Idd is an interesting study on crime. Even as he casually informed Sheila that he did not care much about women, he knew that he faced murder charges for the killing of his girlfriend Nancy Naromboi Edome two years ago.

His small village in Moi’s Bridge is still reeling from the shock of the crime he confessed to last week.

Emma’s dismembered body was found on a farm near their house, with her legs and hands missing and genitals smashed.

The other body parts were later found on the farm. Emma, Sheila told us, had terminated a short-term relationship with Idd.

CHILLING
“I did not know he could ever do this to my sister,” Sheila said. “I now believe that he would have preferred to take her dismembered limbs and hands, put them in a suitcase and walk around Moi’s Bridge as he had told me. It hurts to think that this has happened to my beautiful sister.”

Idd, she said, had also told her that he was mad over his temporary imprisonment in 2017 as his bond hearing progressed in court.

“He said that while in prison he was planning with some of his colleagues in remand to escape, buy a gun and kill those accusing him of killing his girlfriend,” she said. Sheila’s brother, Job Manyasi, also remembered the chilling stories the man told him.

“He said he was so mad with his former girlfriend that he would not hesitate to kill her if he were to find her alive. I always asked him why he was so angry with her but he never told me,” Mr Manyasi said on Friday.

ANGRY
He said he became worried that Idd could be a threat to the community and asked his family to get him a counsellor.

“At some point I decided to counsel him because I have some counselling experience,” Mr Manyasi said. “I often asked him not to be angry about what had happened before. But even with that I felt that he needed further counselling.”

“We want justice for my sister. We will not relent until she gets justice. How many women will he kill before action is taken? We are crying for the loss of our beautiful sister whose life has been cut short.”

Documents at the Kitale Law Courts indicate that Idd faces murder charges for the death of Nancy on July 25, 2017 in Kapkoi village, Kiminini sub-county.

He denied the charges and was released on March 19 on a Sh1 million bond. He deposited the title deed of a piece of land to secure his release.

Nancy’s father, Mr William Edome, said they were not told why he was released on bond, and that he feared that his daughter would not get the justice she deserves.

On Friday, Moi’s Bridge leaders urged the court to stop releasing people accused of murder on bond without considering their backgrounds.

“We are worried that the court might release him again,” said Mr Ken Kipruto, a local leader. “We will not accept that to happen. We cannot afford to lose more innocent souls.”

Nominated MP Belinda Tirop said investigators and prosecutors should help find justice for the two families.

Business

By going the solar route, I save Sh140,000 per month, says restaurateur

Kenya Power was in the news recently complaining that their clients are increasingly transitioning to use of solar energy.

Solar has emerged as a favourite source of power to many homeowners due to its reliability and low cost compared to electricity.

But that is not limited to homes as businesses are also embracing solar energy.

One such business is the new Café Deli branch along Koinange Street.

When the restaurant relocated from Kenyatta Avenue in September, Mr Obado Obadoh, the Managing Director and founder of Nanjala Ltd –the parent company that owns the chain of restaurants — says he wanted to have glass roofing at his new establishment.

This, however, came with its challenges and the option turned out to be expensive since, apart from the glass roofing, they would need ultraviolet (UV) light protectors.

For humans, suntan and sunburn are familiar effects of exposure of the skin to UV light, along with an increased risk of skin cancer.

But, after consultations with experts, Mr Obado settled for solar panels.

“When we were designing the Koinange Street branch, we had experts come in and give their opinions. With the Covid-19 situation, we were also looking for ways to cut costs. With solar, we spent less money than all the other available options,” Mr Obado told the Nation.

“When the costing was done by the quantity surveyor, it came down to almost half of what we would have spent on putting up the glass roof.”

Savings important

 

To Mr Obado, saving even a shilling means a lot and so solar was the welcome option.

“At the Kenyatta Avenue (branch), the cost of electricity per month was between Sh250,000 and Sh280,000. Based on the plan we have, we will use Kenya Power as a backup. This means we will save close to Sh140,000 which is half of what we used to pay before,” he said.

 Mr Omondi Lumbe, the electrical contractor who was in charge of the project, says he installed 96 panels on the roof that coves 250 square meters.

“The panels produce close to 33 kilowatts per hour and are in use for eight hours a day, hence produce close to 264 kilowatts daily,” said Mr Lumbe, who is a partner at Kev & Lum Construction and Electrical Company Ltd.

To avoid more spending, they opted to use solar power directly instead of using batteries to store more energy.

Today, Café Deli only relies on Kenya Power services for between three and four hours, which is mostly at night when the solar panels are off.

“We are only using Kenya Power at night for three to four hours. That means solar power will be used for most of our 12 hours,” Mr Obado said.

He also has plans to install the solar panels at his other branches on Moi Avenue and Nkurumah Lane, Behind Kencom in Nairobi’s Central Business District.

Business effects

 

This is, however, not the first time the businessman is opting to go the solar power route.

Six years ago, when he wanted to install electricity at his rural home in Busia, he says he was slapped with a quotation of Sh800,000.

“I thought about it and wondered why I would pay such a high figure, buy a transformer which is going to be Kenya Power’s property, and still pay them every month. I settled for solar panels and it’s a decision I don’t regret,” he said.

According to Mr Obado, the high cost of power in Kenya has rendered businesses uncompetitive compared to other countries in East Africa.

Café Deli has joined several companies, universities and factories that have turned to solar power  and, in the process, cut operational costs.

This, according to Kenya Power, has dealt a blow to their already dwindling finances.

“The company operated in a challenging environment over the financial year under review, where demand growth at 3.7 per cent remained below the projected level of five per cent. The dampened demand growth is further compounded by increased threats of grid defection by the industrial category as decentralised renewable energy options are becoming more available and cheaper,” Kenya Power revealed in its latest annual report.

The International Schools Database 2020, has ranked Kenya’s cluster of schools as the most expensive in Africa.

According to the report, the most expensive international schools in Kenya charge an average of Ksh 3,245,932 in school fees per year.

Kenya has a well-established private, international schools sector serving both expatriates and local elites, with schools clustered around Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru and Kisumu.

The vast majority teach in English and offer a British curriculum but International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes are increasingly popular.

There are six IB World Schools in Kenya, all of which are authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Three IB programs are offered by Aga Khan Academy schools in Nairobi and Mombasa, while Braeburn Garden Estate School, which is part of the home-grown Braeburn education group, offers the IB Diploma alongside A-levels.

The Braeburn group runs seven schools in Kenya of which four are based in and around Nairobi, with the others are in Mombasa, Kisumu and Nanyuki. The schools follow the English national curriculum leading to A-levels and IGCSEs and two of them offer weekly boarding.

Other international schools in Kenya include: Kenton College Preparatory School, GEMS Cambridge International School, German School Nairobi, Greensted International Schools, St Andrew’s Senior School among others.

In late 2017, St Andrews Turi become the talk of social media after its fees structure and menu were leaked to the public.

Year 7 and 8 full board students were recorded as paying Ksh 730,000 in school fees per term.

In the latest International School Fees report 2020, South Africa had the lowest maximum prices for international education in Africa (Ksh 627,798).

Kampala in Uganda was highlighted as the most affordable city in Africa for international schooling with the lowest minimum international school fees of Ksh 67,303 per year.

Below are the most costly schools in Kenya:

  • In Kenya, Education is seen as the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. However, in Kenya, some of the ‘passports’ come at a cost that is enough to buy you a parcel of land and set up a nice bungalow upcountry.

Popular Kenyan comedian, Flaqo born Erastus Ayieko Otieno has for the first time spoken about a rare condition that he has been struggling with for some time.

Turns out that despite the funny man the Kenyan audience and beyond has grown to know as Flaqo Raz, he has his fair share of battles behind the cameras.

Flaqo opens up

The Internet sensation shared a photo showing red, itchy welts like a form of skin reaction on certain parts of his body.

Depending on the reactions, the welts appear and fade repeatedly and vary in size.

The YouTuber shared his condition with fans in the hope that maybe one or two can relate to what he has been going through and maybe work out a solution on the same.

“Anyone with this condition, how do you go about it?” he posed.

“Sometimes I have to postpone my shoots because they are unbearable. Zangu zilipotea for 6 months straight. Now they are back…” he replied to a fan who shared a similar experience.

Funny enough, soon as he had put up the post, he got so much feedback, with so many individuals able to relate to his skin condition, to his amazement.

“So far: try staying in the sun for a bit, bathe with warm water after taking antihistamines. To understand your condition better, make a point of seeing a dermatologist,” Flaqo shared with fans battling a similar condition, after gathering responses from his fan base.

Wrapping up urging fellow victims to take plenty of water, work out more often and avoid proteins since hives get triggered by things like particular foods, medication and stress.
