‘I’d have died for nothing’ Loise Kim’s daughter on how she almost committed suicide

Published

on

Marya Kimani daughter to celebrated Kikuyu gospel artiste Loise Kim has narrated how she almost ended her life by committing suicide.

Speaking on her You Tube channel, Marya now says that was a stupid thing to do adding that she has ‘matured.’

The decision to want to take away her life was prompted by the fact that her mother wanted to transfer her to a better performing school.

‘When I got to form 1 third term, I made  so many friends but there was one particular friend who was in form four.

She was my BFF, I would talk to her about anything and everything. Even when my pocket money was finished she would share hers and vice versa.

Unlike me she was very smart when it came to books.

What I liked most about the school is that they never took learning so seriously. From Friday throught the weekend we would just be chilling.

On weekdays we would be in class nothing serious.’

Marya’s mum did not know that learning was almost existent in the school and only learnt about it in the newspapers.

‘At some point our school appeared in the newspapers. It was among the last schools in terms of performance.

When my mum saw that she said she would transfer me.

So I decided to do something to avoid being transferred, I was not ready to leave my friends.’

Marya added

‘I was sick at the time and was on drips so I took a biro and out the ink inside the drip so that I could drink it.

Later in the evening my tummy was burning because I had taken so much ink, I had put inks in different colours inside the drip (blue, red. glitters etc).

Due to the pain I was going through I decided it was not worth it.’

In conclusion Marya said she eventually got transferred and to date she hasn’t seen that ‘friend’ who almost made her take away her life.

‘Eventually I transferred and the friendship ended.

I learnt that we don’t live for people. Me and the lady don’t speak we are no longer best friends .

I would have died for nothing.’

MP Millie Odhiambo denies shouting down DP Ruto

Published

on

Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo (pictured), has denied shouting down Deputy President William Ruto at Bomas of Kenya yesterday at the Bomas of Kenya. Odhiambo says she was only answering questions posed by the DP in his BBI address.

The outspoken legislator says she did not have a microphone to enable her respond to DP Ruto’s submissions against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.

“I was answering his questions because he was asking us questions about what should be done, and I was basically reminding him he is the deputy president and I should be asking him the questions he was asking and not vice versa,” the MP said in an exclusive interview with KTN News.

Odhiambo concurred with DP Ruto’s thinking when she acknowledged that there may be areas that need strengthening in the report even if it promises more gains to the Kenyan people.

 “There are some issues that will be addressed through the constitutional review and some through legislative action,” she told KTN News.

During the launch at the Bomas of Kenya, DP Ruto made several submissions on areas to be reviewed in the BBI report.

In his speech, he said the real elephant in the room was the post-poll winner-takes-it-all mentality which the BBI was trying to address by creating the position of a Prime Minister and two deputies.

He wondered how that would take care of other big political heavyweights who would still find themselves without political offices.

Midway his speech, the DP had to pause as sections of the crowd jeered at him while shouting “Respect the President.”

According to Odhiambo, the DP was talking of a coalition government something that the BBI report is not addressing.

“BBI is talking about inclusion [and] we are saying that in a case where you win as a president, then you need to expand the framework of regions that are represented in the executive,” she said.

The MP rubbished reports that DP Ruto allies never received invites for the Bomas of Kenya conference.

Odhiambo said most of the Tangatanga allied MPs chose not to show up despite being invited to the forum that was to be used to air issues in the report.

However, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwah, a DP Ruto ally, says the process was surrounded with hypocrisy.

He echoed Ruto’s remarks that the report did not touch on issues affecting Kenyans such as unemployment of the youth, saying this ought to constitute the national dialogue.

“The only two people who captured imaginations of Kenyans were DP Ruto and former vice president Musalia Mudavadi,” he said, adding that, “those are the only people who were bold enough to articulate the real issues affecting Kenyans.”

Despite being heckled Ruto made his remarks insisting we needed to have a candid discussion before the report is embraced.

Ex-military officer accused of killing ex-wife, children wants ATM cards released

Published

on

A former senior military officer at the Laikipia Air Base accused of murdering his ex-wife and her two children has asked the court to allow him to get back ATM cards and other personal items confiscated by police.

Major Peter Mugure told Justice Abigail Mshila that detectives took away his ATM cards which may not be used as evidence in the murder case, where he is accused of killing his ex-wife Joyce Syombua, Shanice Maua and Prince Michael.

“They took away a number of personal items including my ATM cards. I’m asking to have them returned to me because I do not think they are part of the evidence,” Mugure told the Justice Mshila in a virtual court session.

Although some of the personal items could be used as part of the evidence, Mshila told Mugure to make a list of the items and asked defence counsel to check the inventory and make an application for the release of items that state doesn’t need as evidence.

“Some of the personal items like clothing, or ATM cards could be taken for analysis to enable show your movements. The inventory is in the prosecution file and you could make a list of the items you need to be released,” said Mshila.

The case in which Mugure is jointly accused with Collins Pamba, a former employee at Laikipia Air Base was coming up for hearing on Tuesday but it was postponed to a later date following the transfer of Judge Jairus Ngaah who was handling the matter in Nyeri.

Mugure joined the session from King’ong’o GK Prison in Nyeri and Pamba at Kerugoya prison.

The two are accused of killing the deceased parsons on October 26 last year at the Laikipia Air Base situated in Nanyuki.

The three bodies were recovered buried in a shallow grave after Pamba led police to the site at Kilimo area in Thingithu, in the outskirts of Nanyuki town.

In the previous session when the ex-major was denied bail on February 21, Justice Ngaah cited damning evidence in Pamba’s affidavit implicating Mugure in the gruesome murder of his ex-lover and his two children.

Pamba’s statement as recorded in court file detailed how Mugure called him from Nairobi on a material day and asked for his help to the ferry and bury the bodies and in return, help the casual worker secure employment at Kenya Defense Forces.

The mentioned date was scheduled for December 9.
