However, a worker at the establishment would later find Herman’s body on a blood-soaked bed the following morning.

The incident was reported to Malindi Police Station by the hotel’s receptionist, Kelly Kazungu, on the evening of Tuesday, January 29.

Kazungu said he was disturbed to learn that Herman had not woken up since morning and his door had remained closed.

He had multiple injuries according to the ongoing investigations.

“The room was opened by the receptionist and the body of the said Detering Herman was found lying in a pool of blood with multiple cuts. He was said to have entered the room in company of his African girlfriend namely Mary,” police said in a report.

Forensic analysis which placed the 32-year-old suspect at the scene of crime led sleuths to Diani where she had gone into hiding and was immediately apprehended.

The motive of the killing was not immediately established even as the police continued with their probe to unriddle the blood-chilling murder.

Mwikali will be arraigned once the authorities finalise the necessary police procedure.

In 2018, an 80-year-old Italian tourist, Alessandro Serezani, committed suicide in Malindi.

A bottle of liquor was found in the house and it’s believed he mixed it with poison before taking it.

The deceased had also written two letters in Italian and after translation, he had bid his wife goodbye and left her number as well.

Havi asks Treasury to stop paying MPs 





Following Chief Justice’s letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta asking him to dissolve parliament, legislatures are yet to get a dose of their medicine.

The Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi has requested Treasury to stop disbursing salaries meant for members of parliament.

Maraga had on Monday, September 21 advised President Uhuru Kenyatta to dissolve parliament because it failed to pass the two-thirds gender rule.

According to LSK’s President, Maraga’s directive stripped members of parliament their legislative powers, hence, rendering all their business unlawful.

“Following the request from the CJ today to the Head of State, all laws passed by the Senate and National Assembly remain null and void. Consequently, Treasury must stop disbursing their salaries as any role they indulge in will have no effect,” stated Nelson Havi.

Additionally, the LSK President faulted some legislatures for claiming the Chief Justice’s advisory didn’t have a time frame compliance that would bind President Kenyatta.

Senate Majority Whip Irungu Kangata, on the other hand, suggested that the Head of State will have complied with the directive if he dissolved parliament in June 2022, sometime before the general elections.

Havi further added that he knew of some legislatures who were ready to resign before President Kenyatta dissolved parliament.

Among those who were ready to quit include Peter Kaluma of Homa Bay, Alice Wahome (Kandara), Uasin Gishu woman representative Gladys Shollei, and Senator Mutula Kilonzo of Makueni.

Speaker Justine Muturi at the same time added that dissolving parliament was unnecessary because it was expensive since it would require a referendum to pass the two-thirds gender rule.
