A Nairobi court has granted police five more days to continue detaining a suspect in the killing of a woman whose body was found outside Santonio Court apartments in Kilimani area, Nairobi County.

Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot allowed detectives to continue holding Shem Lwanga’ula Ng’eno (pictured) until Monday to complete investigations into the murder of Sheila Njeri Muruge after a night of partying. At the same time, the magistrate released his two other suspects namely Christine Awour Aluoch and Claire Chepkoech on a cash bail of Sh100,000 each.

This followed successful application by their lawyer Cliff Ombeta that the suspects are unwell and their continued detention them at police station amounted to exposing them to Covid-19 a pandemic.

He told the court that police have no masks at the station to supply to the suspects arrested. However, the magistrate granted the request and ordered the two suspects to deposit in court cash bail of Sh100,000 each.

He also directed them to report to DCI office Kilimani daily until Monday when the case will be mentioned for further direction. Prosecution Senior State Counsel Kennedy Panyako informed the court that detectives need five more days to complete investigations.

Corporal John Mmasi had told the court that Murage’s body was found in the morning of July 17, lying outside near a bed flower.

She had physical injuries on her back and blood was oozing from her nose. She also had bruises on her waist area and apparently, her clothes were torn.

Police preliminary investigations had revealed that the deceased and an identified group of people were at a party drinking and having fun in a house marked B03 on the second floor belonging to Chepkoech.

According to detectives, the party went in the said house and it is confirmed that the three suspects were physically present in the house during the fateful night. Detectives claim the deceased was in that party until she was found dead early in the morning. When questioned on her whereabouts, the three gave contradicting statements.

The court heard that the facts disclosed during the physical inspection and processing of the scene of crime profoundly suggested that indeed police are dealing with a murder case.

The body of the deceased is at the City Mortuary awaiting a postmortem to determine the cause of death. The house where the body was found belongs to Claire.

Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has revealed how he got to own a new Mercedes Benz while still in campus.

Sakaa revealed that after joining Univeristy of Nairobi he got into student politics which afforded him privileges such as nice rooms and being able to set up businesses around the school.

Luckily, while he was the chairman of SONU, he landed a role in former President Mwai Kibaki’s administration.

“The first time I met Kibaki was in 2006 after the referendum. He asked to hear my dreams about the country and I started working with him.

“We established the Vijana na Kibaki initiative and started mobilising in universities and that is how I bought my first car a green Mercedes Benz,” he explained.

In the run up to the 2007 election, he took a lead role in rallying support for the presidential secretariat and during the 2008 post-election crisis.

Sakaja’s resolve to see a solution found resulted in him addressing President Mwai Kibaki’s Cabinet at the age of 22.

At the age of 24, Sakaja had written a section of the 2010 constitution.

When he came up with the formula for the delimitation of constituencies.

Sakaja had been consulted by Nancy Gitau, who was State House’s political advisor.

When the team that was working on the draft laws retreated to Naivasha, he represented PNU whereas ODM had brought a very senior professor.

Kibaki and the rest of the team were so impressed by the 24-year-old that they chose Sakaja’s proposal over the professor’s.

Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) singer Zuhura Kopa popularly known as Zuchu has denied claims that she is in a relationship with Diamond Platnumz.

Speaking during an interview on Wasafi FM, Zuchu described the rumours as baseless adding that if there was a relationship with Diamond, there would have been proof.

“Kwanza ukiangalia ndani ya WCB hakuwezi kuwa na maneno kama hayo kwa sababu hakuna kielelezo na hio story haina muendelezo.

“Tunajua watu walivyo wafuataliaji, trust me kama ningekuwa na any inappropriate relationship na boss, kipo kitu kingeonesha Ushahidi lakini watu wamebase kwenye vielelezo vya promotion ambayo kama ukingalia wasanii wote duniani wa kike wanaofanya vizuri management zao ziliwekeza kweli kweli,”said Zuchu.

She added that instead of people appreciating the WCB boss for investing in a young talents, they have focused on negative things about him.

Zuchu further said that Diamond Platnumz has never disrespected her in any way, and that he is more of a big brother to her.

“Kwa hivyo mi naona badala ya kumpongeza mtu kama boss kwa kuwekeza kwa msichana mdogo kama mimi watu wamnataka kutumia ile nafasi kuweka negativity which is not right. Boss wangu hajawai kunivunjia heshima. I’m saying this with all my heart. He’s a brother and a brother indeed. He has never been inappropriate, hajawahi,” added Zuchu.
