VIDEO: Kenyan woman who bought a gun in US and took it to Kenya to “protect herself from a stalking American boyfriend” speaks out

A US-based Kenyan woman who feared for her life because of what she refers to as incessant stalking by her Mzungu ex-boyfriend has come out to explain how she bought a gun, packed it in her check-in luggage and flew to Kenya.

What befell Florence Wamucii after that is heart wrenching to say the least.

The Las Vegas, Nevada resident says although she followed instructions to the letter, Kenyan authorities made life very difficult for her as they sought bribes. “They insisted that I produce a firearm licence from Nevada despite the fact that one does not require a permit to hold such a gun,” she says.

She accuses the Kenyan officials of blatant corruption and holding her in the calls for several days against the law.

“I deposited the gun with the Customs Department officials at JKIA as required so as to go and apply for a licence and come back to collect it. However, I was arrested before I could leave the airport. All they wanted was money. They initially wanted Sh 3 Million so as to withdraw the charges. I said I wouldn’t give them even a single cent,” She told Kikuyu Diaspora TV in a lengthy monologue during which she gives her side of the story.

Wamucii says she was harassed, put in a police cell for several days and even threatened with being charged under the Terrorism Act.

The accused person was, however, arrested at JKIA and taken to court under a miscellaneous application in which Anti-Terrorism Police sought to detain her for five days to complete investigations.

The court heard that she was not, however, charged with any terror related offences. The court heard that ATPU suspected they would prefer charges under the prevention of terrorism act as a result of the said firearm

Kenyan who Returned from Abroad Detained at Nairobi Hotel over Sh45,000 Quarantine Bill

Published

on

A Kenyan-born student who flew in from abroad  was on Friday detained at a high-end hotel in Nairobi for “failing to pay a Sh45,000 bill.”

However, the student -Mayombe Odubah -claims she was forcefully transferred to Pride Inn hotel by uniformed policemen following a government directive that everyone arriving in the country be isolated for two weeks.

The 20-year old law student at Middlesex University in Slic-en-slac, Mauritius told Nairobi News she informed the police, and hotel management that she could not afford to pay the Sh9,000 hotel day bill.

She also wrote a letter to the Ministry of Health explaining her financial position, a document that is in possession of Nairobi News.

“Most passengers refused to go to the hotel but police forced and threatened us,” she explained.

“I spoke to the management and informed them I didnt have the money. A Mr. Amusala told me to spend the night because I wasn’t allowed to sleep at the lobby at Sh7500 for the night and allow my matter be handled the following day. He has since stopped picking my calls. I have since been transferred to JKUAT, which is cheaper, but the hotel has refused to release me. My parents cannot afford this cost. I am worried.”
