Man slashed to death by razor-wielding rooster during cockfight

A man died after being slashed by a razor attached to a rooster during a cock fight in India, the local media has reported.

The 55-year-old man was accidentally killed after a sharp blade tied to a rooster cut his abdomen in an incident which reportedly happened on Sunday.

The organisers tied the razor-sharp blade to the leg of the rooster, police said.

The victim, who was one of the organisers was holding the animal in his hands, waiting to release it into the arena to fight.

But the rooster struggled for freedom, and the blade fatally pierced the abdomen of the spectator, inflicting a deep wound which killed him.

In India, cockfighting is part of celebrations for Makar Sankranti, a festival day in the Hindu calendar, dedicated to the deity Surya.

Makar Sankranti was this year celebrated on Wednesday, January 15.

Cockfights were outlawed in India in 1960, but remain popular in some parts of the country, according to media reports.

The contests attract a large amount of gambling activity and the high stakes encourage breeders to spend big on raising winning fowl.

Fighters groom birds in the country, feeding them protein-rich diets and giving them steroids so they grow large and can cause more damage in the cock-fighting ring.

In her hay days, the late woman was a model of global stature and worked for various products including Lux beauty soap.

She was actually selected by the domestic care products company Unilver to appear on the soap wrapper and on various billboards in Africa, the only African woman face on their product.

Besides her modeling career, Aura also excelled in other spheres and made a mark in the aviation industry where she became the first Kenyan female pilot.

“It’s with deep sorrow, I mean sorrow upon sorrow that you went to be with the Lord this morning. Our hearts are hardened to this truth. Would it be a dream? The first African pilot woman, Miss Kenya, the model princess, the Lux girl, intelligent, the queen’s English material,” Celestine mourned.

Friends and family mourned her as intelligent woman who did not fear to pursue her heart desires and break the glass ceiling in whatever field.

“It is with a very heavy and inconsolable heart that the Wanga kingdom mourns the death of one of its precious daughters one Gaudentia Aura,” posted Tobia Omono.

VIDEO: Ngirita loses her cool, says her son can’t speak German anymore and has become a chokora

Published

on

The DCI wants the bank account of a member of the Ngirita family, which is accused of fraudulently receiving millions of shillings from the National Youth Service (NYS), to remain frozen as the monies are proceeds of crime.

Ms Phyllis Njeri Ngirita has filed an application seeking access to her account at KCB to pay school fees for her son.

Chief Inspector Paul Waweru opposed the application on Monday, saying Ms Ngirita did not give compelling reasons for the freeze order to be lifted.

Mr Waweru, who is attached to the Financial Investigations Unit, further said the offences Ms Ngirita allegedly committed are serious as they involve theft of public funds amounting to Sh455.2 million.

OTHER ARGUMENTS

In his reply filed before Justice Mumbi Ngugi on Monday, the officer also said investigators made several applications to freeze the accounts of Ms Ngirita and her co-accused as the funds in question are proceeds of crime.

He noted that the Assets Recovery Agency (ARA) already forfeited vehicles that Ms Ngirita is believed to have acquired through proceeds of crime.

“The Sh700,000 was obtained by the applicant through a loan from Opportunity International Wedco Limited and is related to proceeds of crime,” Mr Waweru also told the court.

He added that the car used as security for the loan, a Toyota Station Wagon, is also on investigators’ radar.

The detectives have preserved the vehicle amid investigations into the NYS 2 corruption scandal.

The account that Ms Ngirita wants to access was frozen following an order by High Court Judge John Onyiego.

Inspector Waweru said, “The application amounts to abuse of court process as the court has already pronounced itself on this. The applicant should have made the application before Justice Onyiego, who froze the account.”

“ONLY MONEY”

In her application, Ms Ngirita said her Standard Seven son at Pembroke House School in Gilgil has been at home due to arrears amounting to Sh3.4 million.

She claims the Sh800,000 that is locked up at her bank “is the only money I have” and that she acquired it as a loan.

Her lawyer Evans Ondieki said he was not a position to respond immediately to the DCI as he was served late.

Mr Ondieki also said the DCI, the ARA and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution have ganged up and mixed their constitutional duties.

“The ODPP should be an independent office and impartial but it is acting as one unit with the ASA and DCI. This is unconstitutional and against the principle of innocence. They are fused and there no checks and balances,” he said.

Ms Ngirita’s application will be heard on March 3.

A Tanzanian woman whose photo has gone viral after being posted by US Pop star 50 Cent is speaking out.

In an interview with GlobalTV Online, Nicole Joyberry says much as 50 CENT is a celebrity, she does not appreciate what he did with her photo.

In the post, the musician indirectly likens the  27 year old Nicole to death. “Until death do us part,” he captions a picture of a newly married couple while Nicole’s photo is juxtaposed as a allusion to death.

“I don’t like the way he  references me in that instagram post,”says the well endowed woman.

She also denies speculations that her figure is not natural and that it is enhanced. “Mimi nilizaliwa hivi na wala sijaongeza chochote,” she says adding that she is a serious farmer.

See the Instagram post below and the GlobalTV Online after that:
