‘My father was HIV positive when he passed away’ – Judy Nyawira



For the first time, Judy Nyawira, Abel Mutua’s wife, has revealed the  details of her father’s passing.

Unbeknownst to many, her dad worked in Nairobi and eventually became infected with HIV.

Judy revealed in an interview with CTA (Cleaning The Airwaves) that after her father passed away, the in-laws kicked them out of the house.

‘ My dad suffered a stroke and he had started going for Physiotherapy.

What I remember about our house in Nairobi was the smell of medication. While in class six my dad was in and out of hospital. We went to the hospital on a Saturday as my dad had requested my mum to take all of us. On Sunday my dad passed away. By the time my dad passed away, my mum was 36 years old, with four kids to take care of.”

Judy says not long after her dad passed away, the in-laws chased them out of their home.

“My dad had a bit of money in the bank, around 2 million. A month after we buried our dad, the in-laws came to knock being led by my paternal grandmother and her eldest kids. They wanted his property. I loved my cucu and loved doing sleepovers and I couldn’t understand how she was the one throwing us out.”

Judy says years later she met the doctor who treated her dad. He ignited a fire in her to ask her mum what had killed the dad.

“I had gone to the hospital where my dad was being treated before his death The doctor asked me If I knew what had killed my dad. I was a bit shocked because I knew it was a stroke. The doctor said he had a stroke but he also had something else, he told me to ask my mum about it when I was old enough. The reason for my in-laws attacking my mum was because he had HIV/AIDS, That is why he never recovered from the stroke.”

The creative had the ‘TALK’ with her mum happened 10 years ago

“My relatives from my dad’s side accused my mum of infecting my dad with HIV. They alleged they had come to remove my mum who they referred to as a ‘prostitute’ from the home. They said my mum was sleeping around when my dad was working in Nairobi. Just to be clear, my mum has never had AIDS.  We were eventually thrown out of the house. My mum’s side of the family stood by her so we went back to her home.”

Unknown to In-laws Judy’s mum and their son had done a civil wedding and she was the rightful owner of the dad’s property.

“The court gave us back the right to the property. The specific day we were to go back to our house we had two cops and a person from the court.

She was taken to every house and was asked to take back everything that had been taken by the in-laws.

For two/three days we had cops outside our house, we all slept in one bedroom, despite the house being five bedrooms. After the police left, our neighbors formed a proper Nyumba Kumi and they would safeguard us. They formed a group and Mum had to take the contacts of all the people (men) in the group, when she needed them they came through.”

Judy says her paternal in-laws managed to take away the 2 million her dad had in the bank

“My mum had to start from scratch and the first job she got was sweeping the County Market. Before then she was a housewife.

She would get paid 200 per day.”

Ex-cop Rashid’s murder trial to start on March 14



On March 14, 2024, the murder trial hearing for former Eastleigh police officer Ahmed Rashid will begin.

After denying the two murder charges in front of Justice Diana Kavedza, he was freed on a Sh200,000 bond.

Prosecution attorney Alla Mulama informed Justice Kavedza at pre-trial on Thursday at the High Court in Kibera that the state will call 25 witnesses to testify during the trial, 12 of whom were prepared to do so.

CS Machogu says no exam printing contract was cancelled in reply to Raila



Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu has denied assertions made by Raila Odinga, head of Azimio La Umoja One Kenya, that anomalies in the recently revealed results are due to the termination of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) tests printing tender to a UK firm.

During his appearance before the Parliamentary Education Committee, Machogu stated that tenders for publishing national tests are sent out every year.

”We have not terminated anybody’s contract. Each and every year a contract is made,” he said.

He insisted that Kenya, like any other nation, is capable of producing exam papers domestically.

The Education CS said that his ministry did not violate any laws and that the examinations printing tender was awarded using due process.

However, Machogu recognized that applicants’ difficulties receiving their results were caused by the company’s noncompliance with KNEC guidelines regarding the management of the QR code used for transmitting and accessing the KCPE results.

“As a CS I have learnt lessons because basically you can see as a ministry everything was right. Somebody we can call an outsider was given the contract but did not really conform and do to the required standard. Moving forward when we release the KCSE examinations we will not be able to make use of the same service provider,” he added.

Odinga had on Wednesday alleged that the government illegally revoked the printing tender from a UK based firm to a printer based in Mombasa road and later to India.

”We have established that early this year, the Kenya Kwanza administration suddenly and abruptly stopped this contact because the UK firm refused to give kickbacks. Without following any legal procurement processes, due diligence procedures and attention to examination timelines, the Kenya Kwanza administration awarded the KCPE and KCSE exam printing contract to a politically correct printing company based in Mombasa road,” Odinga said.

Ex-KCB top manager Leonard Mwithiga arrested in US trying to kill wife



A Kenyan man is being charged in the US with murder-for-hire after authorities thwarted his plan to have a woman, with whom he has a long-running legal dispute, assassinated.

The 52-year-old former top banking executive Leonard Thuo Mwithiga was charged in Putnam, Connecticut, after he instructed a friend to find a hitman for him so that he could “finish that woman” or “inject something into her food or water to kill her slowly like cancer.”

In order to avoid being connected to the woman’s death, Mwithiga allegedly intended to have her killed between January 28 and February 3 of the following year while he would be in Kenya. He assured the hitman he would give him $4000 (Sh609,000).

Mwithiga, the prosecutor claims, found a would-be killer, whom he gave $300 (Sh46,000) “in good faith”, not knowing he was dealing with an undercover police officer. He had also given the associate $100 (Sh15,238).

Both the associate, an Uber driver, who turned informant for the police, and the woman who was supposed to be the victim have not been identified.

According to local media sites, the informant informed a state police officer, who then went up to Mwithiga and pretended to be the hitman-for-hire he required.

According to investigation files submitted to the court, the undercover police officer “spoke with Mwithiga for more than an hour on Monday night, finalising the details of” the scheme while wearing audio and video monitoring, according to CT Insider, a Connecticut-based news site.

The Kenyan man was apprehended right away by the officer after they met at a motel in Putnam, the capital of Connecticut.
