‘My business is on the verge of collapse, please give me back my house’ Pleads Sarah Cohen

Published

on

Tob Cohen’s wife Sarah Wairimu wants her house back, the whole compound and all its contents, including her dogs, cars, personal effects and kitchen appliances, among other things.

Wairimu also says that their business Tobs Ltd will collapse if she will not be allowed to go back to her house, where the company is operated from.

But, Assistant DPP Alexander Muteti has challenged the application by Wairimu, saying that Cohen’s house is marked as the primary scene of crime and forensic analysis and investigations are still ongoing.

“If handed over to Sarah, there is a possibility that she will interfere with the crime scene,” Muteti said.

He said that any assets belonging to Cohen or jointly owned by the two, even their dogs, are issues that cannot be ruled by that court.

Muteti said that the court is not a succession court to rule what assets belonged to the deceased and Sarah.

Parents die of Covid-19 after ‘son who refused to self-isolate infects them’

Published

on

A man and his wife have died after their son refused to self-isolate despite being Covid-19 positive, Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe said on Saturday.

Kagwe revealed how the man who had tested positive believed the virus was a myth and travelled home to visit his parents.

“I received news that a son who tested and turned positive for coronavirus but refused to acknowledge the results because he believed the virus was a myth; went home, infected the parents and sister. Unfortunately, his mother and father succumbed to the virus,” lamented Kagwe.

His refusal to self-isolate saw the family lose the head of the family, two weeks after they lost and buried the mother.

The CS at the same time wondered why Kenyans were upset with the government cautioning them every day about the pandemic.

“We have been accused of talking to Kenyans as if they are retarded; Tumetukanwa. My brother and sisters, I can only implore you to accept that Covid-19 is a reality, Kenyans don’t have to die: this is a condition we can control. We can manage ourselves,” he added.

According to Kagwe, it is not necessary for the government to be insulted for telling people again and again, “but we will not stop. It is better to be bored with the figures than to be bored for three weeks staring at the ceiling of a hospital bed.”

When diagnosed with the disease, Kagwe stressed that the medics advise should be followed strictly, insisting that one should isolate so as not to infect other people.

“It is very unfortunate because we keep warning against such kind of behaviour,” he said.

CS Balala revokes blogger from Tourism board over statement on Nairobi National Park

Published

on

Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala has revoked Pauline Njoroge’s appointment as a member of the Tourism Regulatory Authority board with immediate effect.

In a statement on Saturday, CS Balala said she had been replaced with Standard Group journalist Najma Ismail.

He explained that the ministry had just learned of her past remarks about the Nairobi National Park and could not associate itself with her.

For Ms Njoroge, the appointment was a case of so-near-yet-so-far as it was cancelled 24 hours after gazettement.

In the old, undated post that resurfaced on social media, Ms Njoroge called for the land the park sits on to be put to “better and more profitable use”.

“INTEGRITY”

The remark returned to haunt her, proving once again that the internet never forgets.

“… we have just seen what she tweeted in the past, that Nairobi National Park was useless. We do not want to be associated with such people and such thinking,” CS Balala said.

“The integrity of the park is very important and the government is committed to saving it and any other protected area which is the habitat for our national heritage – wildlife.”

CS Balala regretted that the ministry did not know about Ms Njoroge’s view, as it did not come during her background check, and thanked members of the public who used social media to highlight the issue.

NJOROGE’S VIEW

Ms Njoroge is a Digital Media Strategist and Communication Officer at the NEPAD/APRM Kenya Secretariat under the State Department for Planning.

In her post, she questioned the sense in sustaining the park given that Nairobi is congested.

Below is a screengrab of what she wrote.

REACTIONS

As soon as the Kenya Gazette with numerous parastatal appointments was published on Friday, Kenyans took to social media to highlight Ms Njoroge’s post.

She and many others landed three-year appointment to plum parastatal board positions.

Among them were Kanu Secretary-General Nick Salat, former Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission CEO Halakhe Waqo, former assistant minister Kilemi Mwiria, former vice-president Kalonzo Musyoka’s son Kevin Muasy and former Nairobi Speaker Alex ole Magelo.

On Saturday, some members of the public opposed Ms Njoroge’s appointment while others opposed its revocation.

Via Twitter, one ‘Lord Abraham Mutai’ said, “This is just sad. Denying Pauline Njoroge a chance to serve Kenyans based on what she said a few months ago is unacceptable. People have opinions on diverse issues and people should be allowed to change their minds. This is just making decisions based on emotions.”

Joyline Chebet said it would be ironical to appoint to the board someone who does not believe in tourism.
