A Kenyan man died Thursday afternoon after the truck he was riding in struck two other vehicles before overturning into the median of I-65 in Baldwin County, Alabama State Troopers said.

Dr James Gicheha Njeng’ere,  a science teacher at the Alabama School of Math and Science was identified as the victim killed in the wreck, the school said.

Dr Njeng’ere was a passenger in a 2000 Toyota Tundra that hit the back of an attenuator truck around 12:30 p.m. Thursday on I-65 North at exit 31 in Baldwin County, according to Sgt. John “Daryl” Bogle. The attenuator truck was behind a paint striping crew that was working on the interstate.

After the collision with the attenuator truck, the Tundra struck a commercial vehicle and then overturned into the median.

Dr Njenge’re was 69, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency said.

The driver of the Tundra, identified as 24-year-old Esau Waweru Kariuki of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was taken to University in Hospital in Mobile with undisclosed injuries.

Njengere was not wearing a seat belt, authorities said.

“We are deeply saddened to share of the tragic loss of one of our faculty members, Dr. James Njenge’re, in a car accident this week in Baldwin County,” school president Dr. John Hoyle said in an email to students and staff. “This is a tragic loss for our community. Now more than ever, we must continue to uplift and support one another. Dr. James will be fondly missed. His legacy lives on in the hearts, minds, and endeavors of all our students.”

A close friend of the deceased, David Wagacha who is a shipping agent said that the man died while on his way to deliver books to him, so he can ship them to needy kids in Nakuru.

“He was on his way to deliver the books to me. This is devastating news,” he said.

Hoyle said Njenge’re asked two days ago to return to the Mobile school, which has closed because of the coronavirus, to add information to a student’s science project.

“This was the kind of man he was, always willing to put the needs of others before his own,” Hoyle said. “First and foremost, though, Dr. James loved his students and was a charismatic lecturer and an ecstatic classroom presence.”

A 38-year-old woman has committed suicide in Migori after learning that her husband had a secret lover he was planning to marry.

According to police reports, the body of Pamela Atieno was found dangling from the roof of her house on Friday morning at their rural home in Kameji sub-location, Rongo sub-county.

Chief John Agoro who reported the incident to Rongo Police Station said that Atieno took her life after she learnt that her husband was planning to marry a second wife.

“The deceased reportedly differed with her husband after she learned that he had another lover and was planning to marry her as a second wife,” said Agoro.

Atieno is reported to have left a suicide note to her husband before taking her life.

“I have decided to die because of your secret plan to (marry) another wife,” the suicide note read in part.

Never differed

Michael Ondito, the woman’s husband, however, denied arguing with Atieno, adding that he had gone to the farm only to come and find his wife had killed herself.

“I was called when I was at the farm in the morning but upon reaching home I found the body of my wife hanging on a rope on our doorstep, I was surprised because we had not quarrelled or fought,” said Onditi.

Chief Agoro, however, condemned the action saying people should find other ways of solving family differences.

“Domestic problems should not lead to people killing themselves. We are supposed to look for guidance and counselling experts,” the administrator said.

Rongo police boss Peter Okiring while confirming the incident said police received the information and went there to collect the body which was transferred to Rosewood Hospital’s morgue.

“We have launched our investigation into the matter but we are yet to confirm the reason why the deceased committed suicide,” said Okiring.

It is expected that the body will be buried in accordance to Ministry of Health Covid-19 guidelines that include pallbearers wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs).

The family had earlier been stopped from carrying on with the burial arrangements after a woman moved to court over the matter.

Milimani court issued the order restraining Murunga’s widows Christabel Murunga and Grace Murunga from conducting the burial, interment or cremation of the body pending the determination of a suit filed by a woman claiming to have been his lover.

The suit was filed by Agnes Wangui, who said she had two children with the MP in a secret relationship.

In her application she alleged that Murunga’s family had conspired to lock her and her children out of the funeral and burial arrangements.
