VIDEOS: Bodies of missing woman, two children found in shallow grave

Published

on

Three bodies believed to be those of missing wife and children of military officer were on Saturday found in a shallow grave in Thingithu Estate, in Nanyuki.

The three had been missing for three weeks. The bodies were found stuffed in three sacks.

This comes a day after Major Peter Mugure was arrested in connection with the disappearance of his estranged partner Joyce Syombua (31) and children; Shanice Maua (10) and Prince Michael (5).

On Saturday, the bodies were discovered at Makaburini in Thingithu area with the children stacked on top of their mother.

Thingithu is approximately 9-minutes away from the Laikipia Air Base.

 

As detectives dug up the shallow grave, Major Mugure remained silent, sitting still in a police vehicle a few meters from the scene.

Detectives had launched investigations after Syombua’s mother, Elizabeth Maua, went to Soweto Police Station in Nairobi and reported her family missing.

 

She alleged that the suspect had at one time tried to poison the children.

Major Mugure had previously been ordered by court to pay maintenance costs for his children after DNA tests proved he was their father.

“He (Mugure) was not on good terms with her (Syombua) for some time,” Nanyuki DCI boss Mureithi told Citizen Digital in an earlier interview.

When the three went missing, a friend identified as Farizana also reported the matter at Nanyuki Police Station.

Curiously, Syombua’s phone was found a day later, inside a 4NTE matatu.

However, according to the matatu crew, the vehicle had just returned from a trip to Nyahururu and at no time during that weekend had it carried the three missing persons.

Detectives then said they would wait for call-log details from Syombua’s phone before announcing the next step of the investigation.

On Friday, Major Mugure was questioned for seven hours as detectives sought to know what happened to the family that resided in Kayole, Nairobi.

This was the third time that Mugure was being questioned.

The Kenya Defense Force (KDF) officer had earlier told police that he did not know whether the three did indeed board a vehicle to Nairobi.

He is said to have hosted Syombua and their two children at the Nanyuki Airbase until Saturday at around 7pm.

Mugure claimed to have then escorted the three to Nanyuki Bus Station; however, when he was interrogated for a second time, his story changed.

He now alleged that Syombua had called a friend in Nairobi and then left the Airbase with the children.

The suspect is currently being held at the Nanyuki Police Station.

MIRACLE: How Victoria Mugo, a Kenyan woman in US lost both her hands and legs [VIDEO]

Published

on

A Kenyan woman from Aurora, Colorado, is a quadruple amputee. She lost her hands and her legs when pneumonia led to septic shock.

But Victoria Mugo , a mother of 1, is grateful to be alive.

Each year, more than 250,000 Americans die as a result of sepsis. The key is catching and treating it early.

Victoria is a celebrity of sorts at The Medical Center of Aurora (TMCA). The medical staff considers her a miracle.

For months, Victoria was in the ICU there. She lost both hands and both legs. Yet, on Monday, she came back to say “Thanks.”

 

 

“Because I’m grateful for life,” she told CBS4 Health Specialist Kathy Walsh.

“You don’t get any sicker than Victoria was,” explained Carolyn Golas, Sepsis Coordinator at TMCA.

On Jan. 9, Victoria was rushed to the ER with pneumonia. Within hours she was in septic shock, a toxic response to the infection.

“She had about an 80% chance that she would not survive,” said Golas.

Victoria was put in a coma and on life support. Blood flow to her extremities slowed down. When the 38-year-old mother woke up, her hands and legs were dying.

“I could just snap them and not feel anything,” she said.

All four were amputated.

“I am not sitting in a corner feeling sorry for myself because I don’t have my arms or my legs, I’m walking now (on prosthetic legs),” Victoria said.

Victoria’s faith in God is her strength.

“He got me through it. He is the one who has brought me this far,” she said.

She said she has what matters most, her son, Alexander, and the rest of her loving family.

Her smile is a smile of gratitude. Her fighting spirit is fueled by faith.

Facts about sepsis from TMCA:

  • Sepsis is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. killing more than 250,000 patients per year.
  • In Colorado nearly 12,000 people will be diagnosed each year and nearly 3,000 will not survive.
  • Patients with septic shock have a mortality (death) rate of about 50-60%.
  • Once you have had severe sepsis you are at a greater risk of it reoccurring.

Job seeker loses phone, ID to crafty thief at Uhuru Park

Published

on

A 30-year-old police impostor who allegedly stole a desperate job seeker’s phone promising to hire him to help in making deliveries to Kenya Defence Forces was charged with theft and impersonation.

Samuel Mwaniki Murigi was accused of stealing Evans Onyango Ogutu’s phone and national ID card at Imenti House on July 23.

Murigi was also accused of impersonation after presenting himself as a police officer attached to Central Police station Nairobi to Ogutu.

Ogutu was taking a rest at Uhuru Park after a job search in and around Nairobi CBD became fruitless when Murigi sat next to him while on-call, purporting he was advising his phantom boss that he would need to hire an extra hand to help him with meeting supplies.

Murigi claimed his boss had secured a contract to supply some items to Kenya Defence Forces and desperate Ogutu approached him for the job.

The suspect reportedly told Ogutu to accompany him to Imenti House to process a pass into military facilities to begin the job immediately and he obliged.

On arrival, Murigi reportedly took the phone and the ID card to proceed with the “process” and disappeared in thin air. The matter was reported to Parliament police station.

On July 4, Ogutu spotted Murigi at the same point and informed the police. Two undercover officers arrested Murigi and allegedly found pictures of himself in different police uniforms.

The suspect denied all the charges before chief magistrate Joyce Gandani of Kibera law courts.

He was freed on a Sh200,000 bond and an alternative cash bail of Sh30,000. The case will be mentioned on August 19.
