Taxify says that there was no evidence of any wrongdoing by their driver. Why? Because Naomy failed to back up her claims with proper Police reports. Additionally, Naomy did not produce any official documents to show that she did indeed undergo drug tests at the Hospital.

Taxify says they did their own investigation and reinstated their driver who had no case of prior crimes in the past nor or wronging any client after.

Umenipikia kunde! Man kills self on new years over “terrible” meal

Suicide is a tragic and terrible thing. A taboo subject in most African countries. A heinous thing for any family to go through, especially if the reason for it was so silly! Please don’t get me wrong, I don’t advocate for suicide under any circumstance. But sometimes you must wonder at how one can take their own life for a flimsy reason.

Logic meme
Logic meme. photo credit: imgflip

Samson committed suicide in the bible story and killed 3000 of the enemy alongside himself. He had a holy cause and he took them down alongside his conniving girlfriend Delilah. Again I don’t agree with taking your own life, but in this instance, you can see the rationale for his actions. But in the next story, no logic be gleaned. It is awful what this man did to himself and as a result what the bereaved will go through.

The man who took his own life was called Boniface Okwero from Nanyungu Emauko village. The man committed suicide in Butula, Busia County, after getting into a heated argument with his wife over a New Year’s meal. He is said to have been angered by his wife on New Year’s after she reportedly made him a lunch meal of ‘kunde’ – a traditional vegetable.

According to the area assistant chief Boniface Oyosa, the deceased began by setting their matrimonial home ablaze before hanging himself on a tree. Mr. Oyosa said:

“The deceased expected his wife to make him a meal consisting of either beef or chicken for New Year. However, he came home only to find she had made him kunde.This angered the deceased and he went ahead and burnt the house before hanging himself.”

He also noted that the man had not left any money to buy meat.

Sad! Take your life over what you consider a bad meal! Sad!

Sad! Class 6 Pupil’s Body Found Dumped On The Roadside

The body of a 12-year-old boy was found yesterday morning in Nangoto village next to a road, two kilometres away from his home.

Meshak Nato, a standard six pupil, is from Mji village in Maraka ward, Webuye East. He went missing on Monday night.

The body had no physical injuries, but police suspected Nato was strangled. His clothes were nowhere to be seen.

Nato’s mother Margaret Simiyu said he went missing on Monday night, only for the family to be informed the following morning that he was dead. Neighbour Bernard Konya said he suspects Nato was a victim of a long-running family dispute.

He said the body was found outside the gate of a woman who was once married at his home, but was later divorced.

Police have launched investigations and said they will do “all we can to arrest the boy’s killers”.

Bungoma East police boss Zachaeus Ng’eno said postmortem results will give more details about the death.

Simiyu said, “We had prepared the evening meal. We ate together as a family.  In fact, he was the one who bought the vegetables that we ate from the market.

“After the meal, he took soap and said he wanted to wash his school shirt.”

That was the last time she saw him. Simiyu thought Nato would go to bed once he was done with the washing.

When she woke up at midnight, Nato was not in the house. She called out his name, but he did not respond.

“I then went to my mother-in-law’s house. A young boy who stays with her said Nato had been picked up by some people at night,” Simiyu told journalists.

The distraught mother said she received a text message in the morning informing her to “come and pick up your son’s body”.

She almost fainted, as Nato was her favourite child.

Simiyu said she had great hopes in Nato and cannot come to terms with his untimely demise.

Her plans for Nato have been brought to a halt. A dream has been shattered at the wicked hands of unknown assailants.

The mother struggled to find her voice and was overwhlemed by emotions.

Sad! Father Kills His 13-Year-Old Son After The Boy Mocked Photos Of Him Eating Feces From a Diaper He Was Wearing

A father was allegedly led to kill his 13-year-old son after the boy found ‘compromising’ photos of him in diapers and eating feces.

Dylan Redwine went missing in November 2012 while on a court-ordered visit with his father, Mark, in Colorado.

The child’s remains were found seven months later scattered in southwestern Colorado mountains by wild animals.

Prosecutors now say that Redwine may have killed Dylan after he was confronted about the ‘disturbing’ pictures.

Redwine was arrested on Saturday and indicted by a grand jury with charges of second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death after the four-and-a-half-year investigation.

Redwine has constantly denied playing a role in his son’s death and at one point appeared on Dr Phil to blame his ex-wife for the child’s death.


Cory Redwine, Dylan’s older brother, revealed that he had seen the photos.

‘I have seen the photos. It shows him wearing women’s clothes and makeup and a diaper and then eating his feces from the diaper. It was disgusting. We couldn’t believe it,’ he told ABC7.

Dylan’s mother, Elaine Hall, added that she believes her son confronted her ex-husband about the photos and was murdered for it.

‘He may have said something that just didn’t set well with Mark and Mark reacted in a very violent way…obviously. Dylan is no longer here,’ Hall said on a February 2015 podcast.

Redwine is being held in Bellingham, Washington, on a $1million bond and is facing extradition to Colorado, the Durango Herald reported.


However, the issue of whether he will fight extradition will be decided at a later date after confusion over whether Redwine was offered his right to waive the hearing.

On Monday, the court was given an outline of the charges against him and bail was set.

In the grand jury indictment, investigators said blood was found in multiple locations in Redwine’s living room, including his couch.

Cadaver dogs even found the scent of a dead body in various locations in the home and on the clothes Redwine wore the night Dylan disappeared, the indictment says.

In 2014, the cadaver dog also picked up the scent of a body in the bed of Redwine’s pickup truck, according to the indictment.


Authorities also said Redwine had mentioned how investigators would have to find his son’s skull before they determined how the teen died.

Dylan lived north of Colorado Springs with his mother but went to his father’s home near Vallecito Reservoir northeast of Durango for a court-ordered visit in November 2012.

His dad said he returned home from doing errands to find his son had gone. The two parents subsequently blamed each other for their son’s disappearance.

But in June 2013, Dylan’s partial remains were found on Middle Mountain.

Hikers found his skull 1.5miles away in November 2015, according to 9News.


Investigators said Dylan’s skull was found in difficult terrain that was easily accessible by a road that Redwine was very familiar with.

The skull had injuries consistent with blunt force trauma and two small markings that appeared to be tool marks from a knife, the indictment alleges.

Months after the first remains were found in 2013, Hall said she believed her ex-husband killed Dylan.


‘I always have from day one, when he was missing,’ she told The Pine River Times at the time.

According to the indictment, Dylan had not been getting along with his father prior to his disappearance as he watched his two parents in the midst of a bitter divorce and custody battle.

Hall told authorities that her ex-husband told her he would ‘kill the kids before he let her have them’, the indictment alleges.

On Wednesday, police released body camera footage of Redwine being arrested.

Newly Wed Leaps From A 10th Floor Hotel Balcony Where She Met Her Death During a Hen Party

The love that was but never lasted long enough to make memories.

Kirsty Maxwell fell from a tenth-floor Benidorm apartment in which five men were staying on April 29.

Scottish newly-wed was in a ‘state of terror’ moments before plunging to her death from a Spanish holiday apartment, a lawyer claimed yesterday.

The 27-year-old, of Livingston, West Lothian, had been on a hen party trip with friends at the time.

Kirsty Maxwell, pictured with husband Adam, fell from a tenth-floor Benidorm apartment in which five men were staying on April 29

Four men appeared in court in the Costa Brava resort yesterday to be quizzed under oath about the death.

Luis Miguel Zumaquero, the lawyer acting for Mrs Maxwell’s family, tried to have the men held in custody by claiming she had leapt from the balcony in terror.

In an oral submission to the court, Mr Zumaquero claimed a report on the tragedy by Spanish detectives described Mrs Maxwell’s actions as a ‘desperate measure’.

Quoting from the report outside court after the hearing behind closed doors, he said: ‘The police’s own report says that Kirsty ‘tried to flee.

This is a desperate measure, resulting from a state of terror, comparable to what happens to a person who jumps into the abyss from a building in flames.’

A report on the tragedy by Spanish detectives described Mrs Maxwell’s actions as a ‘desperate measure’

The four  were allowed to return to Britain without being charged with any crime despite Mr Zumaquero’s effort to ensure they are detained

Spanish judge Ana Isabel Garcia-Galbis will now review the evidence as part of an ongoing criminal investigation into the death before recommending whether the men should be charged and put on trial

Defence lawyer Roberto Sanchez described his clients’ decision to answer only defence questions as their ‘constitutional right’.

He said: ‘They have given the explanations we felt were appropriate and they have ratified their original police statements, which were very detailed and show they were in a different part of the apartment when Kirsty fell and didn’t see anything

Tests have shown Mrs Maxwell had a blood alcohol concentration of 2.79 grams per litre – putting her more than five-and-a-half times the Spanish drink-drive limit. She had not taken drugs.

Mr Graham told police she had been acting as though she was ‘mad, drunk or drugged’.

He said she had disappeared from his view as she headed towards the balcony.

SAD!!! Man Kills His Best Friend Over 300 Shillings Bet Dispute

A 27 year old man  identified as Patrick Onkoba has been sentenced to 5years in prison for killing his best friend over a Ksh300 bet dispute.

The incident occurred in Mogenda Village, Gucha South Sub-District, Kisii County. According to July 1 ,2016, Patrick got into a Ksh 300 bet with his late friend Dennis Orengo, but he lost the bet and had to surrender his phone as guarantee since he did not have cash with him.

The agreement between the two friends was that Patrick would pick the phone the following day after delivering the cash. On raising the money, Patrick went to see his friend and take back his phone only to discover that it had already been auctioned.


On realizing that his phone had been auctioned, the two got into a physical duel that ended in Orengo’s death. A postmortem carried out established the cause of the death as a severe head injury.

Appearing before a judge, Onkoba pleaded with the court to hand him a lenient sentence saying anger had pushed him to kill his friend and that he was remorseful and ready to ask for forgiveness from Orengo’s parents.

A report brought to the court indicated that they were not willing to accept Onkoba back,  “Even though the accused is a first time offender and is remorseful for his actions, the local administration and his community are not ready to accept him back in their midst. The probation officer is categorical that the victim’s family have vowed to avenge the death of their kin at any opportune time should the accused person be released from jail,” said the judge.

Eight jailed for stripping woman naked, inserting pepper and sisal into her private parts

Eight clan officials have been jailed for stripping a woman naked, beating her and inserting peppered liquid into her private parts.

They eight were convicted of leading a group of 100 clan members in kidnapping the woman and her husband from their home in Kikoko village, Makueni county before carrying out the attack.

Magistrate Patrick Wambugu heard at Kilungu law courts on Wednesday that they also put sisal and aloe vera sap into her private parts and smeared it all over her body.

It was reported that the eight then dragged the woman back to her home and demanded a sheep and food to celebrate what they termed a disciplinary exercise.

They are said to have carried out the attack on October 8, 2013 following reports that the woman was spotted entering a bar at a market in the area.

The officials told Wambugu that they have ‘punished’ others in similar ways, in line with their responsibility to uphold discipline and morality among members.

They were charged with assault, stock theft and unlawfully detaining the woman and were each sentenced to three years in jail, for each offence, without the option of a fine. The sentences will be served concurrently.

Wambugu said the trial of two accomplices who were arrested later will begin on March 3.

“I am happy justice has been served after waiting for two years,” the woman told the Star on phone. The officials were found guilty of the offence in May 2014.

She added: I had been travelling to the court only to find that the magistrate had postponed judgement without notifying me. It was very frustrating.”

Nakuru Sex Workers Fear A Serial Killer

Nakuru commercial sex workers say a serial killer is targeting and mutilating them.

Yesterday, they protested on Kenyatta Avenue against the rise in murders.

They demanded county police catch the killer.

Four sex workers were found dead under mysterious circumstances between September and October last year.

Two had their skin peeled off and the others’ eyes were gouged out, the sex workers say.

Last Saturday, another sex worker, 20-year-old Grace Wangari, was killed at Tumaini lodging.

Their spokesperson Daisy Achieng said: “We cannot hold funerals for our members every other time. We are tired of our ladies being killed.”

She said Wangari had only recently joined the trade and it is unfortunate “we have lost a lady respected by many”.

Achieng asked the county government to provide upkeep for Wangari’s two-year old.

Achieng also urged the lodging owner to provide CCTV footage.

The sex workers later attended Wangari’s burial in Molo town.


Man Arrested For Pimping His Wife To 2,742 Men

The institution of marriage is one that should remain sacred as it has always been from the beginning, but that is not the case with this couple currently embroiled in a legal battle.

A husband ‘hired out’ his wife for sex with 2,742 different clients in just four years, a court was told.

The 54-year-old man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, made the equivalent of more than £5000 close to a million shillings a month through the suburban prostitution business.

As his wife, who is 46, welcomed clients, he would sit outside their home in in the family car, along with their five-year-old child.

The couple, who have been married for 10 years, were arrested last Tuesday, but only the man was charged with pimping, and faces a decade in prison.

Prostitution is legal in France, but it is against the law to solicit for business. The man is said to have used four internet sites and text messages to organise clients for his wife. He now faces a criminal trial, and has been released on bail. 


Mugo Wairimu Denied Bail

Mugo Wairimu was on Friday finally charged with one count of rape alongside various other counts among them, running a medical facility illegally and drugging a patient.

Mugo who denied the charges is alleged to have committed the offenses between November 2014 and June 2015.

He was remanded in Custody until Monday next week after the DPP objected to his bail application saying he is a flight risk.

His actions were discovered after a hidden camera was placed in one of his clinics and then later through an expose’ on Citizen TV that led to his arrest.

‘Rapist Doctor’ Mugo Wa Wairimu Arraigned In Court

A Nairobi court has remanded’rapist doctor’ Mugo Wa Wairimu for 14 more days as investigations into the allegations leveled against him continue.

James Mugo Ndichu alias Mugo wa Wairimu appeared at Milimani law courts on Friday morning where the prosecution team applied to the courts to hold him longer as they conduct more tests on him and his victims.

Senior Principal magistrate Charity Oluoch said that Mugo will appear in court after police have gathered enough evidence and he will be detained at an undisclosed location for security reasons.

He is linked to a video that aired on Citizen TV Sunday night showing a gynecologist raping a sedated patient at the Prestige Health Care clinic in Githurai 44.

Mugo was arrested Thursday in Limuru town while having breakfast after a tip-off from members of the public. By Thursday, four women had recorded statements on allegations of rape against Wairimu.

His case will be heard on September 25.

Girl Raped And Silenced In Kuresoi

A family in Bonde village, Kuresoi North, has asked the state to open an inquest into the defilement of their daughter.

The family yesterday said that on January 20, the class six pupil was dragged into a bush, raped and made pregnant by two brothers, known to the family.

The girl’s family says that they reported the matter to the police, the men were arrested but released later.

“They threatened to kill me if I told anyone,” the girl said.

The girl said that six months later, the two men went to her family’s house and tried to rape her again, but she resisted.

They then beat her up until she fainted and later had a miscarriage, the brothers then took the foetus and buried it in their farm.

“Whenever we go to the chief they tell us to resolve the issue ourselves,” the girl said.

Her mother wants the government to ensure the brothers are arrested and prosecuted for the defilement, as the authorities in her area are taking the issue lightly.
