Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) homicide department are holding a Kenyan woman over the gruesome murder of her foreign lover.

The suspect, Mary Mwikali Kavuu and her suspected German lover Detering Herman, checked into Moriema Cottages in Malindi on the night of Tuesday, January 28.

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.

If Simon Peter, 24, was born without disability, he would have been in his final year at the University. But since he is a special needs child, he is now at Grade 4.

Born in Chikudum, South Sudan, Simon a refugee at the Kakuma Camp was born with a condition known as Hemiplegia: paralysis of half of the body. His disability made him join school at an advanced age as he had no wheelchair to help him reach a school, most of which were far from home. His chance to join school came only when his family moved to a city.

“Growing up with Hemiplegia has been challenging. I never got a chance to socialise and play with other children. I was indoors often. There was no school that could enrol me because of my condition. I started class one in 2016 at the age of 14,” he says.

However, due to political instability and war in South Sudan in 2018, Simon’s education was halted. When he came to Kenya in 2019, he immediately enrolled in Future Primary School in Kakuma Refugee Camp and joined Class Three through the help of Finn Church Aid Special Needs Education project. The organisation issued him with a wheelchair.

“I used to carry him wherever he needed to go. It is a relief that I can wheel him to school, and he manages the school day by himself while I report to other duties. Then I pick him up after the classes”, says Simon’s guardian Mark Loyiel.

Simon now mingles with his classmates, all younger than him and has made new friends and family. His classmates are friendly and usually make sure they get to him to all the places he is supposed to be.

The project also trains teachers on inclusive education that bridges language barriers of refugee learners and prepares teachers to meet their needs.

So far the project has trained 69 teachers and supported 275 children and youth with disabilities that live in the refugee camp to go back to school by getting wheelchairs, stationaries, textbooks, school uniforms and food. They also actively involve parents and guardians in supporting the special needs education.
