Man charged with murder of Kenyan during London party



A 26-year-old man was on Thursday charged with last month’s murder of a Kenyan man in east London.

Randy Skuse, 27, was stabbed to death after a fight broke out during a birthday party at a friend’s house on Buckle Street, Whitechapel. A post-mortem report revealed Skuse, who worked at Britvic’s factory in Beckton, died from a single stab wound.

Three other men were stabbed during the chaos but their injuries were not life-threatening, according to Metropolitan Police.

Sahal Abi was arrested in Ipswich on Tuesday after an investigation by homicide detectives from Specialist Crime.

He was charged with the murder of Skuse and three other counts of wounding with intent.

Seven suspects were arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder and attempted murder but four were released.

The other three men, aged 23, 24 and 29, were released on bail pending further investigations.

According to family and friends, Skuse had been laughing and joking minutes before he was stabbed.

His family has since described him as an “innocent soul” who had been acting as a “peacemaker” when he was killed in the flat.

Skuse’s mother Rahab Mugo told reporters that her son was attending the birthday party of a childhood friend on the fateful night.

“It wasn’t even a big party, the girl was turning 25 and she only invited 25 people,” Ms Mugo said.

Speaking to Barking and Dagenham Post, she said Skuse had just finished work at the factory where he worked as a supervisor at 10pm and left at around midnight.

She said her son got a lift to the party in a friend’s car to the party. Skuse was stabbed when a fight broke out in the morning. Ms Mugo said she was informed of her son’s death by a friend of Skuse’s.

“There were boys injured, a boy dead, boys in the police station and others still in the flat. The police told us to give our details and names of our children,” she said.

Ms Mugo said friends, family and neighbours and members of the Kenyan community have supported her following her son’s death.

“I keep hoping he’s going to come home. It’s hard. I still think I’m in a dream,” she said.

Probe on after patient ‘stuck in hospital lift’



The Health ministry on Sunday ordered an investigation into The Nairobi Hospital after a patient was allegedly stuck in a lift for an hour and 15 minutes.

In a statement, outgoing Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki said the patient was being transferred on Sunday from the Intensive Care Unit to the High Dependency Unit.

“The hospital administration failed to find an immediate solution to the grave situation,” Ms Kariuki said.

The minister said she had been informed that this was not the first such case at the hospital.

She said she had therefore ordered the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Council to immediately investigate the matter and submit a report in two days.

“The hospital management is hereby directed to ensure patients at the facility are not exposed to similar situations in future,” Ms Kariuki said.

Reached for comment on Sunday, the council’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Daniel Yumbya, said he was at the hospital for a meeting on the matter.

Mr Yumbya told the Nation by phone that the meeting was of the hospital’s management and the patient’s family.

The CEO, who said he was with council chair Eva Njenga, noted that he could not give details.

A source told the Nation that the patient, a 46-year-old man, was stable.

The source said the council was assessing the impact of his long stay in the lift to establish if his vital signs, and therefore wellbeing, were affecte

VIDEO: New laws which could have US Green Card holders deported take effect as thousands rush to acquire Citizenship



If you are a Green Card holder in the US and you  think you can do whatever you like without running into  the risk of deportation, then think again. There are some new laws going into effect that could get permanent residents deported.

Under the newa Trump rules, a simple mistake is no longer an excuse and simply not knowing what the new rules are could get someone holding a green card kicked out of the United States for good. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has instituted some new rules that will take effect in 2020.

Some of the new green card rules for 2020 which could get you in trouble if not obeyed are:
  •  Failing to admit you’re an immigrant on your tax returns or failing to report some of your income could get you deported
  • Men between the ages of 18 and 25 who hold a green card must register with the U.S. Selective Service; failure to do so could lead to deportation
  • An extended overseas vacation could cost someone their green card – it could be considered “abandonment” of the green card. WATCH:


Young men between the ages of 18 and 25 who hold a green card and do not register with the Selective Service could also be deported.  Even a vacation overseas could cost someone their green card.

Some are no longer willing to take the chance by simply holding a green card, which must be renewed every ten years, and instead they’re becoming U.S. citizens to avoid deportation.
She says calling these infractions a mistake is no longer an option.

You need a thick skin and God’s grace,’ the mother of one said.

The couple narrated how they are often trolled because of their weight.

..I’m here keeping up with the hippos,’ Milly said.
