A 21-year-old who is suspected to have stabbed to death a woman who was working as a house help in Umoja estate earlier this year has been arrested.

Leonard Kamanga Kamau was arrested in Buruburu by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) after resurfacing in Nairobi from his Mombasa hideout.

In a statement posted on Twitter, DCI said the suspect killed 25-year-old Tabitha Wanjiku who was working as a house help in Umoja.

Neighbours told detectives that the woman was found dead, lying in a pool of her own blood.

“The victim was found by fellow tenants lying in a pool of blood with her throat slit with a kitchen knife, a day after the two kids she was tending (to) were picked by their guardian and was granted some off-duty,” said the DCI.

Detectives and forensic experts assigned to the case then pursued the suspect to Mombasa where he managed to evade them.

He resurfaced in Nairobi on August 7, with detectives launching an early morning operation on Saturday, arresting him in the process.

Crocodile displays woman’s body clenched in its jaws after killing her

Published

on

Locals have been camping at the bank of River Kuja in Ndhiwa, Homa Bay County since Friday in search of the body of a 37-year-old woman who was attacked and killed by a crocodile.

The reptile is reported to have disappeared with Millicent Akoth’s body after killing her before emerging from the water with the body clenched in its jaws and disappearing again.

Akoth had gone to fetch water when the large crocodile “pounced” on her throwing her in the deep part of the river before biting her, according to witnesses.

West Kabuoch Location Chief Joseph Ogur said the crocodile disguised itself as stone, making it impossible for the woman to notice it.

“The lady fell into the water and the reptile attacked her before it carried her body and ‘displayed it’ a few minutes later before disappearing with it,” said Ogur.

Locals say the reptile was last seen at around 4:30pm on Friday displaying the body before disappearing into an unknown part of the river at 4.30 pm.

The mother of three children was in the company of one of her children when the incident occurred.

Her family, friends and relatives, however, remain optimistic that they will retrieve the body.

The residents Manyuru village, West Kabuoch Location have complained of attacks by wild animals in the area.

TV host Joyce Maina denies dating DJ Mo: “I’m not dumb to post a married man”

Published

Switch TV’s Joyce Maina has refuted rumours of her having an affair with renowned DJ Sammy Muraya alias DJ Mo.

There have been allegations about the two being together but Joyce has labeled it hearsay and fake news.

Sharing her side of the story, the TV host shared messages on her Instagram Stories asking if guys thought she was dumb enough to post pictures of a married man.

“How dumb do you think I am to post a married man (not that I’d ever be with one) on my IG,” she wrote.

Joyce found the news hilarious adding guys just mistook a person that was holding her, in a trendy photo, to be DJ Mo.

“Fake news is actually hilarious. So you guys went from not knowing what the man looks like (you just have a blurry photo that makes him look like a shadow), and now all over sudden its DJ Mo? Lol,” Joyce added.

The TV girl must have found the news hilarious and wondered why people would want to tarnish her reputation with such allegations.

Size 8’s take on cheating

Back in 2017, TUKO.co.ke reported on a story where Size 8 claimed that one should be ready to forgive the other when he/she cheats in marriage.

Speaking during a recording of their vlog, the singer said that partners should always be ready to forgive each other in a relationship even when cheating occurs.

“And whoever says they cannot forgive, that is a root of pride,” she said. “Who tells you cannot do that?”

She told her fans cheating shouldn’t be allowed in marriages but in case it happens, couples should find a way to get past it.

“So when your spouse cheats, remember you cheat on God all the time but God forgives you. So forgive your spouse,” she added.

With only 26 plots measuring 1/4 acres remaining, the window to own a plot of land at Amani Ridge the Place of Peace is now closing. As this is happening, the cost of these plots is now set to move up by 20%.

Here is the good news though; you still have a chance to secure your property before this change takes effect.

As this window slowly closes, the value additions are tripling as we are now headed to start internal roads murruming before we finally lay cabro on the same streets. On the other hand, the Kenya Power contract to lay underground power is right on the heels.

At the same time, the Razor Wire installation on Wall of Happiness and Wall not Knowledge (1.4Km in length) is also set to start next week.

Meanwhile, we are heartily celebrating the completion of the four walls surrounding this top gated community in Kiambu (Wall of Peace, Wall of Wisdom, Wall of Happiness and Wall of Knowledge).

As we share this update, the laying of paving blocks (cabro) on a one acre gate-area is ongoing as you see on the accompanying photo.

This cabro works on the estate’s driveway has been designed to give all families and visitors coming into this gated community an inviting welcome.
