A man in Lamu county will face 20 years in jail after a Lamu court found him guilty of causing grievous harm.

Omar Yakub Athman chopped off four fingers of Mr Athman Omar Athman’s left hand.

The incident happened on 29th April 2019 in Tchundwa Village in Lamu East.

His actions were contrary to Section 234 of the Penal Code.

When officers arraigned him in court before Lamu Principal Magistrate Allan Temba, he denied the charges.

Omar’s plea of ‘not guilty’ prompted the Director of Public Prosecutions to call witnesses. Prosecution counsel Zacharia Kiongo and Eddie Kadede facilitated the entire process

The victim, Athman Omar Athman, had gone to assist his friend only identified as Hamza to collect stones.

The two were collecting stones from Hamza’s compound in Tchundwa village.

While collecting stones, the two saw a male and a female donkey rushing into the compound. They entered into Hamza’s house and came out running the same way they had gone in.

The accused later came into the compound asking for a donkey saddle.

The victim told him that they had not seen any donkey saddle.

Infuriated by the victim’s answer, the accused questioned what the victim’s intentions were.

The victim responded by saying that he had nothing to do with a donkey saddle.

The accused person left and came back with a panga in hand.

Without saying anything, he aimed at the victim’s head.

While trying to defend himself, the victim blocked the panga with his hand.

His fingers got chopped off in the process.

The victim tried to run but the accused chased after him and slashed him on the left pelvis area.

The victim managed to rush into a neighbour’s house who rushed him to hospital.

After getting medical attention, he reported the matter to a police station.

Lamu Principal Magistrate Allan Temba pronounced the accused guilty as charged and sentenced him to 20 years in prison.

It is expected that the body will be buried in accordance to Ministry of Health Covid-19 guidelines that include pallbearers wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs).

The family had earlier been stopped from carrying on with the burial arrangements after a woman moved to court over the matter.

Milimani court issued the order restraining Murunga’s widows Christabel Murunga and Grace Murunga from conducting the burial, interment or cremation of the body pending the determination of a suit filed by a woman claiming to have been his lover.

The suit was filed by Agnes Wangui, who said she had two children with the MP in a secret relationship.

In her application she alleged that Murunga’s family had conspired to lock her and her children out of the funeral and burial arrangements.

Murunga, fondly referred to as ‘The Drill’ was born in 1960 and was a manager at  mbakasi Ranging Company in Nairobi before getting elected in 2017.

Present at Murunga’s burial was Deputy President William Ruto, ANC  leader Musalia Mudavadi, Ford-Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula, Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, his Bungoma counterpart Wycliffe Wangamati, MPs Ayub Savula (Lugari), Benjamin Washiali (Mumias East), among others.

Wendy Kimani came into the limelight after being in the first runners up of Tusker Project fame by charming fans with her amazing voice.

She has done hit songs such as Haiwi Haiwi and Unajua which she was featured by Israel born artist Gilad. Not much has been out here about the artist but she is back with a boom.

The singer speaking in a virtual interview at Let’s Talk show in Ebru TV shares struggles of relocating to the Netherlands with her mzungu husband having to leave behind friends and family back in Kenya

The mother of one reveals that although she has always had massive support from her husband, living in the Netherlands has not been an easy thing for her.

For starters, she could not find a salon to do her hair in the country and was left with no other choice but to depend on YouTube vlogs to care for her African hair and that is how her journey into content creation started.

Wendy also shared that the biggest culture shock she experienced is lacking the presence of friends and family.

For her, she had to start over with majority white friends and dearly missed her mother. She also felt alone after she gave birth to her son as the Kenyan culture of friends and family looking after a woman who has just given birth was lost.

For her, she yearned for the tradition in which a mother and friends would bring her plenty of food and offer a helping hand around the house once given birth.

Wendy Kimani also shared that her comeback is now final as she does not plan to step out of music again unless because of unavoidable circumstances.

The songbird revealed that the reason she had to step back was as a result of the family as she was married and then had a baby and relocating to a foreign country she had her step back for some time to organize herself.

Wendy also says she is open to sharing more than hair content on her YouTube channel and will also talk about life in the Netherlands on her vlogs.

She is currently comfortable in the country as she has made a lot of Kenyan friends there who make her feel at home.

She also promises to release more music and a virtual live performance for her new song ‘Pagawisha’ as she cannot jet out of the county because of the strict COVID restriction in the country with approximately 10,000 new infections daily.

She, however, reveals that she will be releasing another single after Pagawisha.
