Controversial video ‘exposes’ Ruth Matete and late Beloved John’s rocky marriage, lawyer Cliff Ombeta responds



A man claiming to be the late Pastor Beloved John’s friend and manager, Jesse McJeissy has called out singer, Ruth Matete for driving her husband to death.

Sunday, the 12th of April, Ruth Matete lost her husband after allegedly succumbing to burn injuries sustained following a gas explosion at their home in Athi River.

Darkness enveloped Kenyans soon after the news broke and went viral. However, controversial details about the Nigerian Pastor’s death are emerging.

Mr Jesse recorded a 17-minute clip ‘exposing’ the terror in Ruth Matete and Pastor Belovedjohn’s marriage.

Belovedjohn’s marriage was never rosy. Ruth Matete you can tell the whole world the truth. You were very violent, you have stabbed him not once, not twice, not thrice.

The Nigerian man expressed sorrow over Belovedjohn’s untimely death – who can no longer reveal what exactly happened to him – as he now points fingers towards the TPF winner for allegedly killing her hubby.

The last time you tried to kill Belovedjohn, I was there in Athi River in Greatwall Gardens. You guys had a fight and you almost killed him.

Jesse went ahead to share a screenshot of his conversation with Ruth Matete on the 2nd of April when the gas explosion allegedly occurred, to serve as evidence.

Adding that Pastor John had several times tried to to fly back to Nigeria from Kenya, to see his daughter and son but was restrained by Ruth Matete.

According to Mr Jesse, the Kenyan singer has psychological issues which need to be addressed before they get further out of hand.


In the light of all this, Kenya’s top criminal lawyer, Cliff Ombeta trashed the claims as ones caused by ‘pain’ for not getting his dues.

According to the legal mind, it is evident that Ruth loved and cared for the father to her unborn child, even calling for help for her injured hubby.

I have listened to the clip. It is only full of lamentations. All his info is from unverified sources. John is seen in the hospital. Therefore was not abandoned. He was taken to hospital. Ruth rushed for help.

Attesting that the Jesse’s pains for not getting paid for services offered, are the basis of his tantrums.

The narrator is having beef for unpaid services for work done. He also has beef because Ruth never wanted John to go back to Nigeria to his other family.

All those instances were before the actual incident leading to his death. Were they reported or documented or are they just from a bitter friend? Nothing said in that clip is relevant unless it directly led to the death. Unless the postmortem proves otherwise and investigations. We need to leave Ruth alone to mourn. Those hearsay stories will not do any good. Wait for investigations and then say what you can.

Ruth Matete is already being prosecuted in the public court.

A jobless graduate who’s finalising his masters degree is appealing for well-wishers to give him a job. Dennis Obiri Ogola from Ndumbuini in Kabete sells boiled eggs despite having a diploma, degree and is set to complete his master’s programme in early 2021.

Humble background, hawking eggs, rent arrears

The soft-spoken Dennis hails from a humble background and is the firstborn in a family of six children. Wellwishers enabled him to pursue his studies and he dreams of helping his younger siblings get a good education.

“I was helped by a children’s home to complete my primary school education. I joined high school in the same children’s home and because of my good manners, they offered to further my education. I did my diploma and after scoring a second class (upper division) in my degree, I got sponsors for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme at UoN,” he says.

Dennis got into the eggs business after another well-wisher was touched by his plight and gave him the startup capital even though the proceeds scarcely meets his needs. On a good day, he makes Sh300 profit which he reinvests in the business, leaving him with peanuts to live off.

 “After hearing of my situation, an empathetic Human Resource practitioner in a financial institution gave me capital to start this business selling eggs and smokies. In a day, I sell a tray of boiled eggs at Sh600 (Sh20 per egg), making a Sh300 profit. I spend Sh300 on eggs for the next day and use some of the remaining money buy saviets, onions and tomatoes for kachumbari , wrapping papers and tomato sauce. The remainder of the money cannot pay my rent. I have some rent arrears but I spoke to the landlord and he’s understanding- but at the end of the day, he wants money,” he says.

“The far I’ve reached, it’s taken a lot of patience and perseverance. I would like to appeal to anyone with a job to offer me the opportunity. I dream of at least helping my siblings,” concludes Dennis, who has over ten certificates.

Aisha Jumwa, aide fail to take plea in murder case




Malindi Member of Parliament Aisha Jumwa and her aide Geoffrey Otieno will spend another night in police cells pending bail ruling in a murder case against them.

The two were arraigned in a Mombasa court on Thursday and charged with the murder of Gumbao Jola who was killed in the chaos that ensued during campaigns for a by-election in Ganda Ward on October 15, 2019.

They denied the charges before Mombasa High Court Judge Lady Justice Njoki Mwangi.

The defence lawyers led by Danstan Omari, Jared Magolo and Cliff Ombeta asked the court to release the suspects on reasonable bail terms.

The lawyers accused the state of frustrating the lawmaker who is also facing graft charges and urged the court to free the two on bail.

Earlier in the day, Justice Mwangi was forced to briefly defer plea taking to allow the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP’s) office to avail missing mental assessment report for Jumwa’s co-accused.

The judge also questioned the validity of Ms Jumwa’s medical report, which the court noted bears a signature that’s not that of a psychiatric known to be conducting the assessments in Mombasa.

The prosecution, however, explained that the medic who appends his signatures on the report has retired and that the procedure was done by his colleague who is currently in charge.

“I didn’t want him to do comedy. I always thought comedy was for those who didn’t want to work hard. From that, i knew that you must identify your kid’s talent and be serious with it,” Othuol’s father said.

The 56-year-old Peter, also talked about a side of Othuol Othuol that many people did not know about.

According to him, his son Othuol was a brilliant kid in school who would often be in the first position.
