4 FGM victims taken to Embu safe house

Published

on

Four girls who underwent female genital mutilation in Gitugi Village, Embu County, have been discharged from hospital and taken to a safe house for psychosocial support.

They will join their three cousins, who were rescued as they were being prepared to undergo the cut, at the rescue centre.

RAMPANT

The cut was carried out by a retired nurse.

Nominated MCA Sicily Warue said they were monitoring the progress of the girls, who are aged between eight and 12 years.

Ms Warue said the County Assembly of Embu would soon enact an anti-Female Genital Mutilation law to stop the rampant cases of circumcision of schoolgirls.

MCAs who are members of the Gender, Culture, Children and Social Services Committee said the outlawed practice was still common in the county due to lack of a county law and stringent penalties for circumcisers.

BILL

Speaking after visiting the Embu Level Five Hospital, Ms Warue said the committee was drafting the legislation that would prescribe stiff penalties for traditional female circumcisers.

The nominated MCA said she would lobby all female MCAs to back the legislation.

Ms Warue said male MCAs had also pledged to ensure the bill, which is still in the draft stage, would sail through in the County Assembly.

Nominated MCA Elizabeth Kibai urged her counterparts to support the proposed legislation when it is tabled in the Assembly in order to save girls from further abuse.

CLERICS

FGM is practised with the full knowledge of religious leaders, she said.

Ms Kibai urged clerics to be at the forefront in speaking out against female circumcision in Embu.

Joan Kiema, the County Executive Committee member for Gender, Culture, Children and Social Services, supported the move to draft a legislation to curb FGM.

Dr Kiema said FGM had not been effectively eliminated in Embu County due to lack of proper mechanisms to hunt down and prosecute circumcisers.

Suspect in death of Keroche heiress faults investigators

Published

on

Omar Lali, the boyfriend of the Keroche Breweries heiress Tecra Muigai, has questioned the pace of police investigations into the death of his lover.

Through his lawyer Yusuf Abubakar, Mr Lali accuses Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives of dragging their feet in the case.

He says the days the police sought from the court to conclude their inquiries were more than enough and they ought to have concluded their investigations.

The lawyer said that when the post-mortem results came out, prosecutors requested more days to conduct toxicology tests (an analysis of potential toxins), something that could have been done within the time they had been given by the court.

The court allowed prosecutors to hold Mr Lali for 21 days as they investigated the death. After the post-mortem exam, they asked the court for five morel days, but the court declined.

Mr Abubakar says the country has advanced technology that enables toxicology tests in a few days, “but they waited until the days they had been given lapsed and came to request … more days.”

The post-mortem exam conducted on May 12 at Nairobi’s Lee Funeral Home showed that the injuries were consistent with a fall down a staircase.

Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor, who led the procedure, said Tecra died of injuries she suffered on the left side of her head.

But the family is said to have termed the outcome inconclusive and demanded further analysis, which involves toxicology tests.

A police source told the Saturday Nation that the toxicology tests are to determine, among other things, whether Tecra could have been poisoned.

But Mr Abubakar said the delay in charging his client in court is deliberate. “The police are not doing independent investigations. There are three teams of officers doing investigations into a single case. Officers from the Coast could not be given the job; it had to be officers from Nairobi. This should tell you that something is cooking.”

The lawyer also said that police had not shared with the defence the post-mortem results. The police argued that giving the results to the defence would jeopardise investigations.

He said Mr Lali had cooperated with the police since the investigation started and should face a fair case.

The police say Mr Lali has a case to answer, with sources telling the Saturday Nation that they plan to charge him with murder.

The police insist that the suspect pushed Tecra to her death. There are reports that there was an argument between them before she fell, a claim that the lawyer has vehemently rejected.

Tecra is said to have fallen from the stairs in a private house in Shella on Lamu Island where she was staying with Mr Lali.

After falling, a source said, Tecra was taken to a local dispensary and later airlifted to Nairobi for treatment, but she succumbed to her injuries.

VIDEO: How rogue tailor turned Abel Mutua into a waiter on his wedding day

Published

on

The last thing you want is to look forward to that day you will tie the knot, the day you will walk the isle or see your better half walk the isle, only for things to go haywire.

Whether it is your cake well baked and designed to your taste, whether it is the bridal gown or the groom´s suit, whether it is your event organizers taking care of every little detail.

Everything just needs to be perfect for you to enjoy your day!

However, many have fallen into the traps of con-artists out to squeeze money from you for either lower quality product or for nothing in return.

Now Kenyan production mogul and actor, Abel Mutua faced a similar scenario for his young wedding.

Abel Mutua

Rogue tailor

Through his YouTube channel Young & Stupid Ep8, the former Tahidi High actor recalled how we sought designer services from La Giacca, a brand with an Italian name meaning ´The Jacket´.

His first contact with the tailor gave him an impressive perception of the brand and he did not doubt one bit!

He told me that the lapel fabric on my blazer would be imported and the whole outfit would only cost KSh 60,000. I thought the price was fair because at a high-end shop, it would have cost KSh 300,000 and above.

Up-front, Abel paid the amount in full because of how much trusted the tailor.

His measurements were taken with a clean fit of the trends of that time. 3 weeks down the line and waiting, Abel was still confident with his tailor.

A month later, the tailor called and told him everything was done and even ready for wear but there was one thing he needed to work on, to complete the look.

The suit is ready to wear but there is a small piece of material that I haven´t received, give me one week to complete.

One week lapsed and his friends started growing doubts about the tailor but the young actor calmed them down.

The tailor however requested for another week, yet the actual wedding was just two weeks away.

He brought me another suit which he claimed had the same measurement and any adjustments would then be done on the actual outfit.

The tailor convinced him that in a few, he would bring back the complete suit, with every detail in place.

Turmoil

The TV personality never heard from his tailor until the eve of his wedding. The tailor came with the suit that allegedly was made of imported material but Abel could clearly tell it was locally made.

The tailor asked to go back with suit, to have it dry cleaned and pressed, ready for his big day. Promising to drop the suit by 4am the following morning – his wedding day.

6:30 am, Abel´s alarm went on but on inquiring from his groom team about any parcel that might have been dropped early morning, the response was ´no´.

They rang the tailor´s phone but his phone was not going through. They kept their hopes high and waited for about 7:00 am to call back.

One hour later, phone still not going through. The actor started getting uneasy that he might disappoint his bride but he never told her of the happenings.

9:30, he was getting late to get to church that was set for 10:00 am.

Quickly, the groom and his team agreed on a common theme and then borrowed friends and neighbors something to substitute because time was not on their side.

We went to church and immediately the bride walked in, she was shocked at our outfits. We were dressed in black and white like waiters. She could not tell the groom from the waiter. The wedding started and we proceeded to the reception.

Soon after the newly weds made their vows and already done with the reception, Abel´s phone rang and it was a notification that the tailor´s phone had now been switched on.

It rang again and an unknown caller told him:

Your suit has been dropped off at your apartment.

Abel dressed in the new suit for his reception.

Since then:

I never heard from the tailor ever again. No apology, no remorse. From that day I learnt my lesson the hard way.
