Pastor Storms Mortuary To Resurrect Wife, But Failed.

A pastor and his followers spent the day at Embu mortuary praying with the hope that his wife will resurrect. Pastor Robinson Githumba, 40, of Eagle Prophetic Church camped at the Gakwegori funeral from 8 am for the mission.

Armed with bibles, they prayed enthusiastically, singing and shouting at the top of their voices expecting a miracle. They invoked God’s name to resurrect Polly Kagendo, 38, who died of TB on Sunday.

Githumba insisted that his wife was not dead but only resting and would resurrect on the fourth day like the biblical Lazarus. The pastor traveled from Rwika Village, Mbeere South sub-county with his followers.

He asked the mortuary attendants to remove his wife’s body and put it in an open place for the prayers. Drenched in sweat, they continued until 5pm when the attendants sought to return the body as they were ready to close for the day.

The pastor said his wife fell sick and was rushed to Mwea hospital where she passed way. He took along her clothes incase she rose. She was later transferred to the funeral home for preservation. Githumba said he believes his wife will rise again. “That is why we are praying for her resurrection.

We know God is the most powerful being. I know she will be visited after three days the way Jesus visited Lazarus and woke him up from the dead. I know this will also happen to my wife,” Githumba, a father of four, said. The woman was set to be buried on Saturday. But with the current development, the plan is likely to change.

Kenya to hire foreign doctors as strike talks fail again

Kenyan authorities said Wednesday they would hire foreign doctors to get public hospitals running again after talks failed to end a strike that has crippled healthcare for 94 days.

The government has threatened repeatedly to fire striking doctors and has even gone so far as to jail union officials in a bid to end the country’s longest-ever medical strike, but the doctors are digging their heels in.

Peter Munya, the chairman of the council of governors, said the government was “working on contingent measures to return the health sector to where it was by looking for services wherever they are available in the continent or outside the continent.”

A furious President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday lambasted the some 5,000 doctors who have been striking for better pay and working conditions, accusing them of “blackmail”.

“We will not succumb to threats and intimidation. Do these doctors think we are that stupid? We have offered you better salaries than those in private hospitals!” he said at a joint press conference with Munya.

At the root of the doctors’ strike is a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) agreed between the government and the unions in 2013.

The document promises to triple salaries but also to improve often dire conditions in public hospitals — which striking doctors point to when accused of being greedy.

The government said the document was still being fine-tuned but doctors argue it is a legal deal which they want implemented immediately.

A Kenyan court which declared the strike illegal appointed church leaders to mediate after several other mediators failed. However even they failed to make headway after the union on Tuesday rejected a 50 percent salary increase and improved risk allowance.

The previous offer had been 40 percent.

– Poor working conditions –
Poor salaries and working conditions — such as a lack of vital drugs and equipment — have pushed Kenyan doctors to flee the public sector or go to other countries where there are better opportunities.

Kenya’s main doctors’ union, KMPDU, says the country has one doctor to 17,000 patients, while the World Health Organization recommends one to 1,000.

University lecturers also went on strike in January, a double blow to Kenyatta’s government just five months before general elections.

A series of corruption scandals — including in the health ministry — are fuelling the discontent, as is anger towards lawmakers who are among the best paid in the world and have voted themselves new benefits while claiming to be unable to meet doctors’ and lecturers’ demands.

Kenyan Man Stoned To Death For Sleeping With Corpse Of His 11-Year-Old Daughter

A 48-year-old man was stoned to death by his family members after he was found defiling the body of his daughter at his home in Kuresoi North, Kenya. According to Nairobi News, prior to the incident the man and his family members were making burial arrangements of the 11-year-old girl, who died of a heart condition. Confirming the incident, the area chief, Kuria Mburu said.

“His wife said she got suspicious when her husband kept sneaking into the room where his daughter’s body laid. She decided to follow him and found him in the act. She raised an alarm, alerting his five daughters and other relatives who beat him to death.”

One of the neighbours said she heard screams while working in her shamba about 500 metres away, but upon reaching the compound, the man’s lifeless body lay outside his house surrounded by the family. His body was later taken to Molo Sub county mortuary.
Deputy Commissioner Baraza Wafula, who also confirmed the incident said police had started investigations into the matter.

“This is a police case. The law does not encourage people to kill others in the name of justice.

The deceased wife who had travelled to Kericho town in preparation of a cleansing ceremony.
According to the Kalenjin customs, a ritual has to be done by elders of the clan to cleanse the body of the man and his immediate family from evil spirits before burial. The decision to conduct a burial ceremony is then left at the discretion of the family.

However, a source in the family who sought anonymity, revealed that the two would be buried on the same day but no burial ceremony will be done for the man.

“His body will be buried on Friday morning during the ritual, after which a memorial service and the normal funeral proceedings will be carried out for the girl.”

Kenyan Court Releases Jailed Doctors

Kenya’s Court of Appeal on Wednesday ordered the release of jailed officials from the national doctors’ union, so they can negotiate with the government over the strike that has paralysed the public health sector.

The strike has angered Kenyans and turned into a test of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s leadership ahead of an election in August.

The union, which has about 5,000 members, wants the government to implement a deal agreed in 2013 to give doctors a 150 to 180 percent pay rise on basic salaries, review working conditions, job structures and criteria for promotions and address under-staffing in state hospitals.

The seven union officials were ordered to serve a one-month jail term on Monday after a lower court found them guilty of contempt of court in relation to the strike which started in December.

Appellate Judge Wanjiru Karanja said the seven officials would be released immediately. She said the parties in the labor dispute had seven days to find a resolution.

“The applicants, respondents and interested parties undertake to resume negotiations forthwith, with a view to resolving the outstanding issues, in order to restore normalcy in the public health sector,” she told a court packed with doctors.

The government has offered the striking doctors a 40 percent pay rise which the union rejected.

The Law Society of Kenya and the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights, who appeared as interested parties, were ordered to mediate the dispute and report back to the court.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga said the strike had dragged for too long and blamed the government for the impasse.

“So many innocent Kenyans have died in hospitals for lack of treatment,” he told reporters outside the court.

Kenyan police officers killed by Al-Shabaab militia in terror attack

An unknown number of Kenyan police officers were killed by al-Shabaab militants in the border town of Mandera during a raid early Thursday, officials said.

Police sources said the terrorists attacked a police camp in Arabia, Mandera town in northeast Kenya on Thursday dawn, and cut off police’s communication in the area.

Northeastern regional commander Mohamud Saleh confirmed the raid, saying they had sent a response team to check on casualties.

“There is no communication with officers on the ground but there was an attack there, teams are heading there,” Mr. Saleh said.

A regional government official, Eric Oronyi, said the unknown number of heavily armed attackers raided the police camp at around 3 a.m. local time Thursday (0000 GMT).

“We have sent reinforcements to the scene since communication has been cut off.

“We have not established the number of casualties or the exact damage but the situation is not good,’’ Mr. Oronyi said.

The incident came barely a week after Al-Shabaab militants overran a Kenyan military camp in southern Somalia under the Africa Union Mission in Somalia, killing nine Kenyan soldiers.

However, al-Shabaab claimed to have killed 57 Kenyan soldiers.

Report says a major manhunt for the Al-Shabaab attackers is currently underway in Somalia.

Somalia’s al Shabaab says kills dozens of Kenyan troops in raid on base

The Islamist group al Shabaab said on Friday its fighters killed dozens of Kenyan troops when they attacked a remote military base in Somalia the previous day, a claim the Kenyan army denied.

A spokesman for al Shabaab, which often launches attacks on troops of the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM), said its fighters killed at least 57 Kenyans at the base in the southern town of Kulbiyow, near the Kenyan border.

Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, al Shabaab’s military operation spokesman, told Reuters about Friday’s attack.

“We are pursuing the Kenyan soldiers who ran away into the woods.

“Two mujahideen (fighters) rammed suicide car bombs into the base in Kulbiyow town before storming it,” he said, adding that as well as counting 57 Kenyan bodies, the group seized vehicles and weapons.

“We have taken over the base.”

Al Shabaab, whose assessment of casualties often differs markedly from official versions, typically rams the entrance to a target site with a car or truck bomb so fighters can storm in.

The group, which once ruled much of Somalia, wants to topple the Western-backed government in Mogadishu and drive out the peacekeepers made up of soldiers from Kenya, Djibouti, Uganda, Ethiopia and other African countries.

Driven out from the capital Mogadishu in 2011, al Shabaab has been fighting for years to impose its strict interpretation of Islam on Somalia.

African Union and Somali troops have driven al Shabaab fighters from major urban strongholds and ports, but they have often struggled to defend smaller, more remote areas from attacks.

“That is false,” Kenyan military spokesman Lt. Col. Paul Njuguna told Reuters, in reference to al Shabaab’s claim that 57 soldiers were killed although he did not give any casualty figures.

“The operation is ongoing. We are receiving updates,” the officer added.

Kenyan television channel NTV reported in a headline that “several KDF (Kenya Defence Forces) soldiers believed killed” in the raid and heavy fighting was reported.

In January 2016, al Shabaab said it had killed more than 100 Kenyan soldiers in El Adde, a Somali camp near the border with Kenya.

The Kenyan military never gave details of casualties, but Kenya media reports suggested a toll of that magnitude.

Just In: MMM launches in Ghana.

The creation of the Mavrodi Mondial Moneybox (MMM) in Kenya and Ghana, approximately 48 hours after its activities in Nigeria were suspended for a month, has caused increased panic among its Nigerian participants.

Chiamaka Ugorji, the wife of Chuddy Ugorji, a leading MMM Nigeria promoter, attempted to calm nerves by writing an open letter to participants, but this failed to reassure Nigerians that their investments were safe.

Some individuals, who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Abuja, shared their thoughts on the issue.

A civil servant, Charity Okafor, said “I participated in the scheme twice by investing N500,000 and one million naira respectively and I got my money back with the large interest.

“However, I felt I should not participate in the scheme any longer and I am lucky I had people around me who convinced me not to reinvest.

“I know I would have turned into a crazy woman if I had money there during this suspension,” Mr. Okafor said.

Ebube Okoh, a housewife, said that she believed the launch of MMM in Ghana and Kenya had everything to do with the Nigerian chapter.

According to the website, the ban on withdrawals is due to negative reports by the media, heavy workload experienced by the system, and an attempt to prevent problems during the New Year.

“I, however, believe that they have run out of people to get money from to pay back the large investments that were coming into the system.

“I believe the money obtained in Kenya and Ghana will be used to make up for the deficit in Nigeria, besides both countries have higher currency values when compared to the Nigeria naira.

“The launch in Ghana and Kenya can’t be a coincidence.”

Gregory Bello, an engineer, said “I have money in the programme, but I am not as upset as other participants because it is a small amount of money compared to others.

“The money I put in is the interest I got from my last investment. I am one of those hoping the system comes back in January for the sake of our sanity.

“I have friends who put in millions of naira and have either suddenly fallen ill or are showing signs of depression.

“I just pray that MMM Nigeria has not crashed because many people will commit suicide or turn crazy,” Bello said.

After Swindling Nigerians, MMM Is Now In Kenya Promising 40% Return On Deposits

After conquering South Africa, Zimbabwe and Nigeria, MMM has taken its message of 40% return on investment to Kenya.


The scheme, which calls itself a Global financial social network but is really just a Ponzi scheme was created by Russian criminal, Sergei Mavrodi.



Here’s to hoping Kenyans don’t get as greedy as Nigerians.

[VIDEO]: Chaos As Over 100 Mental Patients Escape From Hospital

Over 100 mental patients have escaped from Mathari Psychiatric Hospital in Nairobi after Doctors and Nurses made good their strike threat.

Elephant In Kenya Kills Italian Tourist Trying To Take Photo

A police official says an elephant killed an Italian tourist in Kenya’s coastal region after he moved closer to get a better photo.

Malindi Police Chief Muchangi Mutava said the 66-year-old man saw the elephant at a watering hole Sunday at the Swara Camp in Kulalu ranch and went to take photographs, but provoked the elephant which charged toward him. Kulalu Ranch is a tourist draw because it has a wide range of wildlife.

Mutava says the tourist sustained serious injuries to his left leg and died at the camp. The police chief says the man was having breakfast with his wife in their tent when he left to photograph the elephant.

Mutava says the couple was scheduled to depart Kenya next month when their tourist visa expires.

John Kerry In Kenya For Regional Security Talks, Arrives Nigeria Tomorrow

With a peace deal unravelling in South Sudan and jihadist attacks continuing in Somalia, US Secretary of State John Kerry met with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta in Nairobi on Monday.

The two discussed regional security and terrorism before Kerry met with the foreign ministers of Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda for talks focusing on a faltering peace agreement in South Sudan and looming elections in Somalia.

A statement from the Kenyan presidency ahead of Kerry’s visit said discussions with Kenyatta would focus on “regional security and stability” including South Sudan where a civil war has been raging since December 2013, Somalia where elections are due next month, and Burundi in the throes of a political crisis since April 2015.

Terrorism would also be on the agenda, the statement said, as the threat from Somalia’s Shabaab militants continues to affect the region.

Kerry’s previous visit to Kenya in May 2015 paved the way for US President Barack Obama’s trip two months later.

The high-profile US diplomatic missions underline Kenya’s importance as a regional partner to the US, particularly on security, and demonstrate a thawing of relations that cooled while Kenyatta was under indictment by the International Criminal Court for alleged election-related crimes against humanity.

Kerry is expected to focus his attention on South Sudan and shoring up a year-old peace deal that has so far failed to end the conflict.

Kerry is due to travel to Nigeria on Tuesday before leaving Africa for Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

Another Lion Escapes In Kenya, Mauls Man

A man was injured by a lion that was subsequently shot dead by wildlife rangers as it was roaming outside the Kenyan capital Nairobi on Wednesday.

It is the fourth time this year that lions have roamed outside Nairobi National Park and the second time someone has been injured by a lion in less than two weeks.

The dark-maned male lion was shot by a Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) ranger after it hurt a passer-by near Isinya, a built-up area south of the capital where onlookers were gathering to stare at the agitated animal.

“The stray lion that was roaming in Isinya has been shot dead after injuring a person,” said KWS spokesman Paul Udoto.

Udoto said the injured man had been taken to hospital and the animal shot “after it (had) become wild”.

In previous incidents this year the lions have either been herded back to the 117 square kilometre (29,000-acre) park or have returned of their own accord.

The reserve is almost surrounded by a fast-growing city of over three million people.

Earlier this month a 63-year old man was injured when a lion clawed at him close to a busy highway where motorists were honking their horns and snapping photographs and videos as they drove by.

The park is not entirely fenced to enable traditional migration by animals in search of grazing.

The big cats are under growing pressure as one of Africa’s fastest growing cities expands onto ancient migration routes and hunting grounds.

Conservationists say lions lived there before people in the area and are not “escaping” the park nor “straying” into human settlements, rather people have moved into the lions’ habitat.

In mid-February, two lions spent a day wandering through Kibera, a densely-packed city slum, before returning to the park, and days later more lions were spotted in town.

Famous Lion Pride Poisoned In Kenya

Members of Kenya’s Marsh lion pride, made famous in BBC’s long-running Big Cat Diary documentary series, have reportedly been poisoned after eating a cow carcass in the Masai Mara Reserve.

So far, two lions have died—a lioness named Bibi and an unidentified lion, which was found in the field dead, fed on by scavengers. Another female named Sienna has been missing since Governor’s Camp manager Patrick Reynolds discovered the animals acting strange Sunday morning.

On Tuesday, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust posted on its Facebook page that an autopsy of Bibi found that traces of an insecticide had been used to poison the pride. The wildlife trust’s mobile veterinary unit is treating five other lions in the pride with antidotes for the poison, and reported that six white vultures were found dead near the location of the poisoned cow carcass.

The rest of the 13-member lion pride has been accounted for and remains under 24-hour watch by veterinarians and park rangers, according to Paula Kahumbu of the conservation group Wildlife Direct.

Mr Karlus Maluta, the Consular Officer in charge of visa at the High Commission, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that it had introduced the service since June 20.


He said that the Kenyan Government took the decision to make visa application easy for intending tourists.


Maluta said that Kenya has fascinating tourist attractions sites.

“It is well known that Kenya is a preferred tourism destination in Africa.

Kenya has fascinating-tourism sites that can thrill tourists and make them have value for their money,’’ he said.


The consular officer said that Kenya was safe for intending tourists, as the government had taken necessary and preventive steps against terrorists’ attack there.


Also, Mrs Betty Ingwe, the Marketing Officer, Kenyan Tourism Board (KTB) told NAN that the Kenyan Government would continue to showcase the country’s tourism attractions to Nigerians.


Ingwe said that the board would be collaborating with the Kenyan Airways, KQ Holidays and trade partners to market Kenya’s tourism destinations to Nigerians.


She said that the Kenya Tourism Board was poised to market Kenyan tourism potentials to the Nigerian market.


Ingwe added that the board had a meeting with Nigerian stakeholders in Abuja on Nov. 17 which serves as an opportunity to sell Kenyan tourism market to Nigerians.


“Kenya is a great destination year round. Kenya is where you can experience a different safari every day. The country offers an endless array of activities for travellers,’’ Ingwe said.

According to her, “In the last five months, the board has held periodic trainings for Nigerian tour operators and other trade partners to sell Kenya as a preferred destination.


“Outside Kenya, Nigeria is the only country with an office of the Kenya Holidays, which shows the importance of the Nigerian market to us,” she said.


Ingwe said that some of the tourist sites in Kenya include: the ultimate safari experience, wide beast migration (between July and October every year), and white pinstripe beaches.

Man Who Calls Himself Self Acclaimed Living God In Kenya “Jehovah Wanyonyi” Killed By Mosquitoes

Self-proclaimed living god Jehovah Wanyonyi is dead, a local leader has confirmed, amid his followers’ prayers for his ‘resurrection’.

Wanyonyi, 98, died from malaria on July 18 on his way to Cherangany Nursing Home in Kitale town, Kipsomba chief Daniel Busienei told the Standard.

Busienei said the spiritual leader’s children sought a burial permit on July 19, adding that the hospital required it before releasing the body.

“I told my assistant chief to issue them with a permit to allow the deceased family to lay him to rest,” he said.

Assistant chief Paul Bett confirmed that he gave the family the burial permit a day after Wanyonyi’s death.

On Sunday, Wanyonyi’s followers, the Lost Israelites of Kenya, prayed for his return at his home in Nangili, Kakamega county.

Some of them said they have been fasting since they learnt that he had gone missing.

“We believe in him and we want him back on the throne as soon as possible,” follower Joyce Nakhanu said.

Wanyonyi has not been seen in public for more than six weeks and his family is also anxiously waiting for him.

Family spokesman Eliab Masinde said he has been hospitalised in Nairobi, where his sons are taking care of him.

Wanyonyi, who also has a following in Uganda, developed back problems four years ago.

He had been confined to a wheelchair at the home, where his followers say he has 70 wives, 500 children and more than 1,000 grandchildren.

Isnt life strange? How gullible can people get?

God or Allah have never fallen sick. They are supreme beings. They are mighty. They are powerful. Jehovah Wanyonyi? A mere Kenyan who used his jams to blindfold a few Kenyans to kneel and worship him.

A man who cannot perform a miracle. A man who was never satisfied with the number of women in his life. A man wants to enrich himself by siphoning everything from his myopic followers.

He even says that he brought HIV/AIDS to earth as a punishment to humanity for defying his commandments.

In his words:

“If the Kenyan Government does not give me 3 billion shillings ($3.8m) I will bring a curse on Kenyans,” he warned few months before he gave in to malaria.

SPOTTED: Former president Jonathan and wife spotted on weekend vacation in Kenya (PHOTO)

Nigeria’s former President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Dame Patience, were spotted over the weekend at a vacation spot in Kenya.


The former first couple visited Kenya’s Maasai Mara Games Reserve on a three-day tour of with two of their children.


The Jonathans arrived on a chartered plane and were received by the Governor of Narok, Samuel Tunai  who is also the council of governors tourism committee chairman.


Governor Tunai said more than 500,000 tourists from all over the world are expected to witness the spectacular crossing of wildebeest across the crocodile-infested Mara River.


According to reports by Kenya media, Jonathan who refused to speak with reporters on arrival, is the second digitary to visit the reserve in less than two weeks. The King of Swasiland, Mswati III was booked at the lodge last week.


The owner of the hotel where the Jonathan’s lodged, Nicky Fitzgerald, said this tourism peak season is different from the past as prominent personalities from across the world have been calling for bookings.


“We have received Mr Jonathan, King Mswati III, a Chinese prominent family and we are expecting other royalties,” she told reporters.


Fitzgerald attributed the boost in tourism in Kenya to President Barrack Obama’s visit July.

CNN Boss Apologizes To Kenya For “Hotbed Of Terror” Reference

CNN has apologized to Kenya over a recent terrorism slur.

In a televised CNN report preceding President Obama’s July trip to Kenya, the news network has referred to the East African country as a “hotbed of terror” while highlighting the possibility of an attack by Al-Shaabab militants during the President’s visit.

Kenyans were not amused by CNN’s labeling and immediately took to social media to hurl insults and sarcastic humor at CNN under the hashtag #SomeoneTellCNN, which ended up trending onTwitter TWTR -2.89% for a few days.

But the Kenyan government took a more serious approach towards reprimanding CNN. Two weeks ago, the Kenyan Tourism Board, a state agency whose mission is to drive and support the effective marketing of Kenya’s tourism products, said it was withdrawing advertising from the network in reaction to the “misrepresentation of the country’s status.”

Barack Obama Lays Wreath At The US Embassy Bombing Memorial

US President Barack Obama on Saturday laid a wreath at the Kenyan capital’s Memorial Park in memory of those killed in the 1998 embassy bombing.

He placed the wreath on a holder in front of a wall engraved with the names of the dead and stood for a moment in silence.

Around a dozen survivors and National Security Advisor Susan Rice also attended.

The scene was quiet except for the sound of a fountain just behind Obama and the distant sound of an assembled crowd of well wishers who were kept back by police.

The US missions in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, were hit by near simultaneous car bombings on August 7, 1998.

The twin bombings, claimed by Al-Qaeda, killed a total of 224 people and injured some 5,000 — almost all of them Kenyans and Tanzanians.

Obama is currently making his first visit to Kenya, his father’s birthplace, since becoming president.

Kenya’s Central Bank Governor Nominee Grilled For Being Single At 54

When you get to a certain age and not married, people start to wonder. But when you’re 54, very successful and never been married…Kenyan lawmakers grill you mercilessly…lol. That’s what happened to the man nominated to head the country’s Central Bank. The lawmakers wondered, if you can’t find a woman, keep a woman and make a home, how can you keep our money? Lol.

54 year old University of Nairobi and Yale-educated economist Patrick Njoroge, who works as an adviser at the International Monetary Fund, is single. Never been married, doesn’t have children and when he appeared in front of Kenya’s parliament last week, telling them how he can move their economy forward as head of their Central Bank, they were like, really? lol. He was so grilled about his marital status that it caused debate online in Kenya with quite a few condemning the lawmakers

The lawmakers asked him about economic policy, why he doesn’t have assets in the country and why he isn’t married.

“I am single by choice and I am comfortable that way,” he told the lawmakers. “There is nothing sinister with that and I am sure this committee has done its due diligence on what sort of a person I am”. Kenya’s Daily Nation quoted him as saying

Why so much interest in his marital status? In Kenya and in most parts of Africa, it’s unusual to find a man over 40 who has never been married, so his status will definitely raise eyebrow in the country because the average age of first marriage in Kenya for men is about 30 years old.

Many condemned the line of questioning on twitter though, saying that Njoroge’s competence, rather than his personal life, that he should be tested by.

A woman in Kibera is searching for her 22-year-old daughter who ran away with her husband in a bizarre case of husband snatching. Caroline Achieng, 36, has been in agony for the past one year during which her efforts to trace her missing daughter whom she conceived as a teenager have been fruitless.

The daughter went missing after a family altercation that ensued from a revelation that she had an
affair with her stepfather, got pregnant and procured an abortion, all paid for by her mother after a well-choreographed trickery by the duo.

Achieng’s daughter was last seen at the Kibera District Commissioner’s office when the family had been summoned over rape allegations that she had filed against her stepfather.

“We have had our low moments as a family and at some point it got so bad that I fought with my husband and he moved out of our house carrying his and my daughter’s clothes,” Ms Achieng told Nairobi News.

The family drama started in September 2013 when Ms Achieng’s daughter was unwell and frequently complained of stomach pain.

“I told her to go for a checkup and when she came back from the clinic she told me she had been given ulcers medication,” said Ms Achieng.

The girl’s illness kept recurring and at one time the stepfather proposed that he takes her to a better hospital for checkup and to which Achieng obliged.

“He told me that he had identified a doctor at Kijabe Hospital where the girl would be treated and since I was the sole family breadwinner, running a charcoal business, I financed them and they went to the hospital,” she said.

Achieng also financed the follow-up trips to Kijabe Hospital for the treatment of her daughter as her illness kept getting worse until she closed down her charcoal vending business because of the huge hospital bills.

“It was months later after she (daughter) had filed the rape case that she narrated to the officers at Kilimani police station what had happened. That’s when I learnt that all this time when she was ‘ailing’ she was trying to procure an abortion,” said the mother.

Achieng felt cheated as the girl revealed that her step-father had impregnated her and sourced for a clinic where she was given abortion pills that made her stomach pains worse at first but later flushed out the eight-weeks-old foetus.

“She told the officers that she was sexually assaulted repeatedly by my husband since when she was 8-years-old and was impregnated later but she never wanted me to know since her father threatened her,” narrated the mother.

The mother of seven resolved to divorce her husband but before he moved out of the house, her daughter went missing.

Ms Achieng says she searched for her at her relatives’ houses in vain and it is only after her husband of 15 years moved out that she heard that the two had reconnected and were living in an estate unknown to her.

She has been living in agony over her failed marriage as well as being unable to trace her first born daughter who lives with a man who broke her heart and left her with six other children to fend for.

Achieng has managed to secure a casual job with the National Youth Service but she owes her landlord six months’ rent arrears due to her meager earnings that she splits to cater for children school fees and food.

Men Suspected To Have Killed 148 Kenyan Students in Terror Attack Denied Bail In Court

Five suspects arrested in connection with a terror attack at a Kenyan university that killed 148 people were denied bail yesterday when they appeared before a court in Nairobi for the mention of their case.

Police had accused the suspects of supplying guns to the four gunmen who carried out the deadly attack in April.

The accused, Mohamed Ali Abdikar, Hassan Aden Hassan, Sahal Diriye and Osman Abdi who are thought to be Kenyan or Somali nationals, and Rashid Charles, a Tanzanian national, have denied the charges and were remanded in custody until later in the month when their trial is expected to commence.

While making the ruling, the chief magistrate said granting bail would compromise investigations as security officials were still compiling evidence.

The prosecution has said it intends to call more than 30 witnesses to testify in the case, and the trial is scheduled to begin in earnest on June 24.

After the attack, officials announced five arrests, including three alleged “coordinators” captured as they fled towards Somalia and two others seized at the university compound.

The two arrested on campus included a security guard and a Tanzanian found hiding in the ceiling holding grenades.

It will be recalled during the university attack, the extremists lined up non-Muslim students for execution while Muslim students were spared.

Al Shabaab Attacks Village In Kenya’s Garissa

Al Shabaab militants attacked a village in the northeastern Kenyan county of Garissa, the ministry of interior said on Friday.

The Somalia-based al Shabaab group, which has carried out frequent attacks in Kenya in recent years to try to force Nairobi to pull its troops out of Somalia, struck a university in the same area last month, killing 148 people.

A ministry statement said the militants entered Yumbis village, 70 km (45 miles) north of Garissa town, but were driven back. “Security forces on Thursday evening thwarted an attempted attack at Yumbis village,” it said.

“Security forces swiftly mobilized and engaged the militants in a gun battle. No casualties were reported.”

A police source in the area who did not wish to be named said the militants roamed Yumbis for an hour in two trucks bearing Kenyan registration plates. They hoisted their black flag on a mosque where they held prayers, before they headed out to a nearby village called Damajale.

A combined force of police and the army drove them off about three hours later, the source said.

Kenya’s tourism industry, a top foreign exchange earner, has borne the brunt of the attacks, as worried tourists cancel their bookings.


Kenya Bombs Al Shabaab Camps In Somalia In Response To Garissa Attack

The Kenyan air force on Sunday bombed two Al Shabaab camps in Somalia in response to the Al Shabab terrorist attack on Garissa University College according to a Kenyan defence Forces (KDF) source.

Al Shabaab militants on Thursday killed 148 people mostly students when they stormed Garissa University in Kenya.

Kenya jets pounded the camps in Gondodowe and Ismail both in Gedo region bordering Kenya according to the military source. It was difficult to establish the death toll and how much damage done due to cloud cover.

“We targeted the two areas because according to information we have, those (Al Shabaab) fellows are coming from there to attack Kenya”, the source said.

Al Shabaab militants have killed over 400 people in Kenya since 2013. It has been difficult for Kenya to stop the flow of Al Shabaab militants and weapons across its 700km border with Somalia.

Nigeria, not Kenya, is About to Become Africa’s Next Big Technology Hub

Largely off the back of Mpesa, the hugely successful mobile money-transfer system, the Kenyan capital has gained a reputation for technological innovation—and with it an influx of no-strings (or few-strings) development funding that has crowded out some of the private investment searching for tech startups to finance.

 Now investors are looking to the other side of the African continent for results. Nigeria, with nearly 200 million people, a growing economy, and no shortage of local problems, stands out as an option. It’s slowly building up a tech sector of its own. The funding circuit is still small: probably no more than 10 companies investing money, says Kresten Buch, founder of the Nairobi tech accelerator 88mph (which has since expanded to South Africa).
The biggest difference between Nigeria and other major African economies is its sheer size. With roughly four times as many people as Kenya or South Africa, Nigeria is big enough to reward products and services that are domestic in nature.

One example of that is Obiwezy, a venue for selling used smartphones. Nigeria is primarily a pre-paid market, where customers pay the full cost of a handset up front. That puts most high-end devices out of reach for all but the very rich. But the aspiration to own a high-end Apple or Samsung handset remains, as it does elsewhere in the world. Obiwezy’s founders figure that a secondhand market—with warranties—is one way to sate that demand. They have tied up with MTN, a large telco, to offer the service.

 Nigeria still has a big hole where investors willing to put in between $100,000 and $1 million should be. For now, investors are ensconced in Nairobi. But that might change as Nigeria’s companies grow larger, signaling opportunity to deeper-pocketed investors looking for returns.

36 Non Muslims Killed By Terrorists in Kenya Again

At least 36 quarry workers were killed early Tuesday in northern Kenya by suspected Islamic extremists from Somalia, said Kenyan police.

The killings happened in Mandera County near the border with Somalia and the attackers escaped, said Kenyan police chief David Kimaiyo.

The workers were ambushed at the quarry as they slept, said other police sources, who insisted on anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to the press. The gunmen singled out non-Muslims and killed them, said the police. Some were shot dead and others were decapitated, the police officials said.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the killings but the attack bears the hallmarks of Somalia’s Islamic militant rebels, al-Shabab. Al-Shabab attacked a bus in Mandera County last week in which 28 non-Muslims were separated from other passengers and shot dead.

The quarry attack came hours after a hotel in Wajir, also in northern Kenya, was hit by a grenade and gunfire attack which killed one person and wounded 13, said police.

Terrorists Execute Over 28 Non- Muslims in Kenya Commercial Bus

Suspected members of the Somali militant group al-Shabab have killed at least 28 people in an attack on a bus in northern Kenya, officials say.

After stopping the bus, attackers separated out those they thought were non-Muslim before killing them, they said.

The bus was travelling to the capital, Nairobi, when it was stopped in Mandera county, near the Somali border.

After the attack early on Saturday, local officials quoted by Kenyan media said the government had failed to answer their pleas for extra security.

One official told Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper that assailants had asked passengers to read out verses of the Koran, before executing those who failed.

Kenya Police Seize Weapons & ISIS Flag in Fresh Mosque Raids

Kenyan security forces on Wednesday carried out fresh raids on a mosque in the port city of Mombasa searching for weapons and supporters of Somalia’s Shebab militants, police said.

Grenades, ammunition and petrol bombs were seized in the raid on the Swafaa mosque, the third to be searched since Monday in the tense city, officers said.

“We conducted a security operation,” local police chief Richard Ngatia said, adding that “weapons were seized” but that the operation was ongoing.

Dozens of people were arrested, adding to more than 250 arrested on Monday.

Security forces cordoned off streets around the mosque and soldiers patrolled the Kisuani district of the city, east Africa’s main port, an AFP reporter said.

It comes just two days after police raided and closed the Musa and Sakina mosques in the same city in a search for weapons and radical supporters of the Al-Qaeda affiliated Shebab.

Police seized hand grenades and a pistol, and arrested more than 250 people. Black Islamist flags, such as those flown by the Shebab, were also found.

Al Shabaab: Kenya Appoints New Intelligence Chief


Kenya on Thursday swore in a new intelligence chief, Major-General Philip Kameru, in the bid to address the rising threat from Al Shabaab militants in neighboring Somalia bent on retaliation after U.S. missiles last week killed their leader and co-founder Ahmed Godane.

Major-General Kameru’s appointment as the new director general of Kenya’s National Intelligence Service comes nearly a year after Al Shabaab gunmen killed 67 people in an attack on Nairobi shopping mall.

Kenyan security bosses were lambasted by the public for failing to prevent the four-day siege and Kameru’s predecessor, retired Major-General Michael Gichangi, resigned in August under pressure over a rise in attacks blamed on Al Shabaab.

Al Shabaab had pledged that they would take revenge for Kenyan and Western involvement in Somalia.

Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has said he picked Kameru for his success in intelligence-gathering in Somalia.

In a statement from the presidency on Thursday, Kenyatta told the new security chief to work effectively with other government officials.

Hague Prosecutors Ask to Stop Kenyan President’s Trial


International Criminal Court case against Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta ended on Friday when prosecutors conceded the country’s refusal to cooperate. This means they would not have enough evidence to put him on trial. The decision to stop the much-delayed trial, which was due to start on October 7, is a serious blow to the decade-old war crimes tribunal, which has suffered from a string of end cases and accusations it singles out Africans for prosecution.

The case against Kenyatta, who was accused of stoking a wave of lethal inter-ethnic violence after Kenya’s 2007 presidential elections, had been postponed several times as prosecutors tried to gather evidence against the politician.

 ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said in a filing, asking judges to adjourn the case indefinitely. He said, “The accused person in this case is the head of a government that has so far failed fully to comply with its obligations to the Court.”

Kenyatta, the son of his country’s founder, was elected president in 2012 and immediately began rallying Kenya’s African Union allies in a diplomatic push to have the charges against him dropped, along with those against his deputy, William Ruto, who is already on trial on separate but similar charges.

Prosecutors had asked Kenyan authorities to provide their president’s phone and bank records in the hope this would yield the evidence they needed to convict him after their case was weakened by the withdrawal of star prosecution witnesses.

If Kenya were a person, it would look like her…

As you all know, I carry my camera with me everywhere I go. I usually don’t carry it with me to school because I’m scared of losing my baby. Besides, I travel via the same route everyday and nothing interesting happens, so it’s pretty pointless. I also have lots of books to carry.

Anyway, I decided to take my camera to school on Friday because I assumed everyone would be dressed up. Luckily for me, Comfort was also at school and she looked beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

You all remember Comfort, right? The beautiful Kenyan model with a great smile? Yeah I thought so. I went up to her and asked if we could do a quick photoshoot during lunch and she said yes.

We went to the back of the school building and I spent about 20 minutes with her. I’ve been trying to experiment with lighting, so I was glad when the sun came out for a bit. Working with Comfort was so much fun. She doesn’t know it, but she has been a great help to me, as she is an experienced model. Comfort was very comfortable in front of the camera.

Haha, see what I did there? No? Okay.

Anyway, I’ve learnt an awful lot from her, in terms of directing the model.

I am really pleased with the pictures I got and I hope you like the best images I’ve chosen for this post.

Did I tell you Comfort wants me to take pictures for her portfolio? She’s hiring me as her personal photographer, but don’t worry. I’ll still have a soft spot in my heart for anyone else.



I’ll be posting more pictures from the photoshoot next week. Stay in touch! 

Camden and I, Reunited

Hi everyone, I’m not sure if you remember the post I made when I first visited Camden. Well, I remember that day, especially because I got pretty awesome compliments. A lot of people seemed to love those pictures and I was glad because it was my first time in Camden and I initially didn’t feel as if I had done my best.

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m always with my camera or I’m somewhere reading something about photography. I’ve been reading a book about street photography, as I wish to specialise in this area of photography. I got some useful tips and I couldn’t wait to try out them out, so I visited Camden again in the hope that I would end up with better results.

I used a 70-300mm lens for most of the pictures and I absolutely loved it. I started street photography with my 50mm lens and I personally think it’s important to start with a prime lens, as you learn so much more about composition and framing because you can decide what things are necessary in the shot and you can also eliminate unnecessary things. It teaches you to get close to your subject in order to get a great shot. I think I’m at the stage where I understand composition and framing fairly well and I hope to invest in a zoom lens in the near future.

I absolutely enjoyed visiting Camden again. I might go there regularly, as there’s always something going on and they have awesome Chinese food. I think the pictures I got this time are quite interesting and I hope you think so too. Enjoy!

My history-obsessed sister thinks he looks like Hitler, without the moustache.

What an amazing job, right?

I absolutely adore her. She came up to me later and asked if she could take a picture. Then she said “Don’t worry, I’m not going to run away with your camera.” I agreed and I asked her if I could get a picture of her as well and she ran away laughing.
If only she knew I already got a shot of her.

He noticed me with my camera and I guess he wanted to show off his skills.

I’ve always wanted to get a picture like this. Using a 70-300mm lens made it possible.

He was flirting with every girl around. When I walked past he winked and said, “Wagwan baby girl?” I laughed and asked him for a picture. I think he really enjoyed posing.

I’ll end this post with pictures of my friend, Comfort. She was born and raised in Kenya and she will be representing her homeland next month in the competition, Miss Nubian UK. She is absolutely beautiful and her smile is amazing. She has a great face and I hope to do a photoshoot with her soon.
