Monica’s brother recounts finding her body in bathtub

Published

on

A court heard Thursday that a suspect in the murder of 28-year-old business woman Monica Kimani last year offered to have a security company help find her killers.

While testifying before High Court Judge James Wakiaga, Mr George Kimani, a brother to the deceased, said that Mr Julius Irungu, aka Jowie, asked him to allow a security company help them solve the murder.

Mr Kimani disclosed that he had contacted Mr Irungu while seeking to be connected to the media so as to have his sister’s murder reported. However, he said, Mr Irungu advised him to consider the help of a security company instead of involving the media.

“He asked if we knew who had done it, he said the case won’t go far if media is involved, he said a security company could help but we felt we needed the media,” said Mr Kimani.

The court also heard that despite the fact that both Mr Kimani and Mr Irungu were known to each other as friends, Mr Irungu did not mention to Mr Kimani that he was present at his sister’s house on September 19, 2018, the night she was killed.

Mr Kimani gave a harrowing account of how he had to break into his sister’s house, together with the caretaker, gardener, landlord and finding the body of the deceased lying in a bathtub. He told court that his mother was frantically looking for the sister on phone on the morning she was found dead.

When the mother could not get her daughter on phone, she contacted him to find out why she was unreachable. While he tried to call and text her without success, he drove with his girlfriend to Monica’s house.

He said they found her door locked and had to get the landlord’s permission to have the door broken. But before breaking the door, they asked the gardener to jump into the house through a window so as to open the door and find out the whereabouts of the deceased.

The gardener returned looking confused and asked them to just break the door from outside in order to get in.

While they were standing outside the house after finding the body of the victim, the court heard, a neighbour came by and disclosed that he was at the house together with Mr Irungu and another man identified as Owen the night before she was found dead.

Mr Kimani told the court that he contacted their father who came along with an uncle who later notified the media about the gruesome murder.

Mr Kimani said that Owen, who has already testified before court, had tried reaching out to him through another person identified as Jimmy, but he advised him to simply record a statement with the police instead of talking to him.

He said that he only tried to find out who was present at the house on the fateful night and never pursued communication with Jimmy or Mr Irungu.

When prosecution showed him photos of his sister’s house, he could not hold back tears as he gave his testimony.

Mr Kimani described the deceased as hardworking, open-minded, someone who trusts easily, a good boss and a dear friend to him.

He also said Monica was to fly out to Dubai to meet with her boyfriend, Yasir Mohammed, on the morning she was found dead.

Thursday, Mr Irungu pleaded with the court to consider freeing him on bail but the judge said the matter will be determined when the trial resumes hearing on November 26.

Mwalimu Rachel speaks after Sailors Gang drag her into yet another money scandal

Published

on

Radio presenter Mwalimu has not been having an easy time with the Sailors Gang gang especially now that there is beef. This comes as a big surprise considering the fact that she discovered the boys; back when Gengetone had just become a thing in the entertainment industry.

A few months later, the presenter and Sailors Gang gang apparently can’t see eye to eye due to a few reasons here and there. The whole drama however started after Mwalimu Rachel was accused of squeezing one of Sailors gang friend’s balls.

Sailors Gang preforming

Yes, this was more than drama but a real case that saw the presenter present her self in court for the hearing. Since then, nothing has been the same between the former manager and the Gengetone artists.

Accused of refusing with their YouTube logins

Well, this past weekend rumor spread around claiming that Mwalimu Rachel had refused to hand over Sailors Gang Gang Youtube channel. According to reports, the presenter asked for Ksh1.5 million in order for her to grant them access; now that they are under the Blackmarket record.

She tweeted;

Smart ladies run businesses. Not their mouths. Nawapemda wote! I shall address the nation later my loves. Mimi sikimbilii maneno. Kwa sasa tuchape kazi.

The presenter went on to add;

Put emotions to the side when running business.

Mwalimu Rachel speaks

Of course, this makes the NRG presenter look selfish and greedy; but after coming across her latest Tweets, we also understand that this was more of a business for her.

Having the boys walk out on her with no agreement – might be the reason why they now feel that she is taking advantage of the situation. However, truth is one way or another both parties will have to benefit if they decide to head to court.

Appeal for support to establish a free cancer screening center in Kenya

Published

on

BY JACKLINE N. MWATI

Kenya Cancer Care Foundation is a community-based organisation focusing on offering free cervical and breast cancer screening to all women in Kenya, starting with a pilot program in Gatundu North Sub-County in Kiambu County.

We also offer free prostate cancer screening to all men from 45 years and above as well as provision of  free HPV vaccine to all the Girls from the age of 10-12 years.

We strive to have a cancer free nation.

To support this project, kindly send you donation to the phone number provided in in the flyer. You can also call us and we will be happy to answer any questions.

The KENYA CANCER CARE FOUNDATION® is a subsidiary project of the Maryhelp Mission Rehabilitation and Counselling center. The project was founded in the year 2016 to cater for free cancer screening and ensuring there is proper referrals.

Its main goal is to ensure there is an equitable distribution of FREE cervical, breast and prostate cancer services to all the Men/women of reproductive age insured or un-insured. It also ensures all the girls 10-12 years are vaccinated against HPV [Human papilloma virus] .

We believe in the modality and the methodology that no man/woman should die of prostate, breast and cervical cancer since it’s a disease that is treatable and manageable if early screening, vaccination and correct diagnosis techniques are instituted.

Practically if all the men/women are screened regularly for prostate, cervical and breast cancer then it’s evident that any form of cancer will be detected early and proper therapy instituted. Meanwhile we are currently working with several cancer institutes for the treatment and diagnostic procedures as part of our referrals. We are advocating for these tests to be FREE to all and mandatory to our population. This will ensure we achieve our mission by giving these expensive tests to those who cannot afford them. On achieving this,

We are in our initial phase towards the construction of our cancer diagnostic and treatment hospital along Thika-Mang’u road.

  It’s quite important to note that Kiambu County is only served by one cancer referral Centre that is Kenyatta University Hospital. There should be a MODEL structure put in place to have at least one cancer screening and diagnostic Centre in every Sub County.

The Centre will cater for early screening and early treatment according to the WHO protocol. One of this model pilot project is the one that we are proposing to have in Gatundu North then the same will be duplicated in Githunguri then we shall roll out this project to other counties in Kenya. It’s important to emphasize on the role of cancer screening as a pilot project.

The patient will be followed using this smart card and an automatic tele-reminder of her next schedule will be automated. There shall be no treatment of any medical condition NOT unless the smart card is revealed and showed as a prove of cervical /breast cancer screening [or finger print method to access the patients data].Then all the female children in that family will be followed for HPV vaccination for the scheduled vaccination doses and the smart card indicating that shall be issued.
