Mirema Drive Shooting: I’m innocent!

A man accused of killing Samuel Mugoh Muvota in Mirema, Nairobi surrendered to police Monday in a dramatic turn of events.

Dennis Karani Gachoki claimed he is innocent and only met Muvota twice, once in Meru and in Nairobi.

He surrendered to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters accompanied by a lawyer.

“I am innocent and I will prove this. I didn’t kill the man they say I killed,” Gachoki said.

He said he felt that his life was in danger hence to move to surrender.

He also confirmed that he has an ongoing court case in Meru where he was accused of receiving money acquired through fraudulent means.

Gachoki who said he has been in Nakuru added that he learnt he was wanted by police on Friday through a friend.

“Someone who recognized my photo alerted me that I was wanted. I have not known peace since then,” he said.

Detectives took Gachoki who hails from Kirinyaga County, for further grilling.

On Friday last week, detectives said Gachoki was armed and dangerous and was suspected to be in possession of a firearm that was snatched from a stupefied police officer, after a round of drinks at a popular joint in Mombasa, in November, 2020.

They said efforts by detectives to arrest him had been futile since he was well loaded and influenced rogue cops who tipped him off once an operation for his arrest has been launched, Directorate of Criminal Investigations said.

Police said Gachoki had recently had a fallout with his boss Muvota over sharing of proceeds from their “pishori trade” and beautiful women who would first pay with their flesh before being enlisted to the mafia-style organisation.

This among other beefs are suspected to have led to a bitter fallout leading to Monday’s daylight murder of Muvota, who left behind seven grieving widows and countless children.

Muvota 40, was fatally shot by a lone gunman on Mirema Drive in Kasarani, Nairobi County on May 16 shortly after dropping off a friend.

No one owes you anything – Khaligraph to Gengetone artistes

Rapper Khaligraph Jones has advised Gengetone artistes to plan their careers rather than blaming the industry.

Speaking to Classic105 online, on Saturday, the OG encouraged them to put discipline in their work so people can embrace their music.

“I tell artistes to step back and re-strategise because we all have problems, just that there are things I don’t talk about,” he said.

“Sit down and come up with a new plan and stop blaming people for your problems. You will not make any progress. No one owes you anything in the industry.”

Khaligraph’s response comes a few days after former Sailors Gang’s Qoco Juma said Kenyans underrated their music genre.

“People have been saying Gengetone music is dead. What I can say is that the people saying that are the same people fighting against our success,” he said.

Khaligraph also said the reason he did his dedication song to his mum was that he can handle the negativity.

“If I did ‘Maombi ya Mama’ song before I became rich, Kenyans would have trolled me,” he said. 

“I am now successful and at a point where I can handle the trolls and the hate. My story is relatable to many people and the problems I experienced back in the days and now becoming successful.”

My last wishes: Cop who committed suicide cremated, leaves last will

A policewoman who died by suicide was cremated at a private event in the city amid calls by colleagues to address the rising trend in the service.

Only a few friends and family members of Constable Edith Nyawira, 35,  attended the Thursday event. The family said this was per her wishes.

Those who attended the event said her ash was picked up for other rituals. The family said she left a note to her sister asking her to take care of her six-year-old son.

“She also wished her boyfriend goodbye but we do not know what motivated her actions,” a family member said.

On May 17, Nyawira blew up her head at the police camp in Limuru. The officer used a scorpion rifle.

Nyawira was attached to the Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit. Police said Nyawira was supposed to guard a local bank.

She however excused herself from work and went to her house where she shot herself and the bullet exited in the back of her head.

The team of investigators who visited the scene said they recovered three spent cartridges and two suicide notes addressed to the deceased’s sister and boyfriend.

On Saturday, a police constable attempted to commit suicide by swallowing a concoction believed to be poison.

Police said constable Bernard Ogada of Dujis police station, Mbalambala was found lying at his home following a domestic quarrel.

He was rushed to the hospital where he was admitted in stable condition.

This is the latest such incident to happen and affecting the service. At least a case is reported weekly, officials said.

On May 10, a police officer died by hanging himself in his house in Nabukon village, Turkana.

The body of Constable Francis Epem Erot, 44, was found in his bedroom.

Police suicides have been on the rise and most are blamed on stress and work-related trauma.

As part of efforts to address the problem, authorities have started a counselling programme for the officers.

The National Police Service Commission announced it had established the counselling unit to evaluate, design, and lead an outreach programme to deal with mental health problems and substance abuse.

The programme helps police families and others affected by mental health problems, substance abuse and trauma.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i said the government, NPS and the Prisons Service have enhanced counselling and medical help for officers.

“There is a deliberate drive to destigmatise mental illness and stress and to actively reach out to potential cases, including through the Nyumba Kumi initiative,” Matiang’i said.

Late Janet Kanini’s hubby in trouble over chips funga post

The late Janet Kanini’s hubby, George Ikua found himself in a defensive position when he reposted a popular quote about men and women falling in and out of love.

Ikua posted, “There’s girls that men take home and then there’s girls they make a home with
Girls that men make love to and there’s girls that make men love them
Some girls are a hurricane, some calm the storm
Some girls give everything, wind up with nothing at all
The kind of girl you are is the kind of man you get
Regan Rousseau.”

One Facebooker, Kinyanjui Kibati criticised Ikua for posting the quote.

He wrote, “My elder brother, this post is shallow and sexist. I have never had cause to address you as such, but this one, some sexism couched with simple wisdom but ultimately bogus.”

Ikua explained, “Kinyanjui Kibati, interestingly Regan Rousseau who wrote this is a 23-year-old girl speaking about her dating experiences. And she added , ‘ Wrote this cause I needed to hear it…’ Does the sexist, shallow sentiments still apply? If not interesting how who said it changes the meaning….bring one to ask us the truth or do we paint shade based on the author?”

In a rejoinder, Kibati explained, “George Ikua of course you know I respect that. We are all the compound result of our experiences. She has articulated a view that encapsulates some positive wisdom. The positive wisdom, in my eyes, relates to the consequence of our actions. How that decision making leads to particular results.
It’s the couching that I take issue with. The foundational premise. For men. To be judged by men. You presented a flip of the script. How it could be like switching the sexes. But I don’t think that is the point. No sex or individual should be merely subject to the narrative of another.
I will concede that all of this is in my head. As a rigidly single 43-year-old man, I have come to believe that I could be incapable of understanding the nuance of human relationships that actually make things work. I am an outside observer and therefore can only make comments on intricacies I genuinely have no personal knowledge of. I will therefore not die on this hill.
Do you know how hard it is to live in a society that constantly blares out that women should seek a God fearing man when you are an atheist?”

How will Monkeypox affect you? Things you need to know

The world is in a frenzy of a new viral illness that is also transmitted from animals to humans. The disease is known as Monkeypox.

Monkeypox is a virus which is endemic in parts of Central and West Africa. Human monkeypox was first identified in humans in 1970 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Since then, monkeypox is largely confined to Western Africa where it is endemic. However, there are occasional outbreaks outside of Africa associated with travellers.

Transmission typically occurs animal-to-human via rodents and non-human primate animal reservoirs. While it is rare, monkeypox virus can be transmitted person-to-person by close contact with skin lesions, body fluids, respiratory droplets and contaminated materials such as bedding.

Symptoms

According to the CDC, the symptoms of monkeypox are similar to but milder than the symptoms of smallpox. Monkeypox begins with fever, headache, muscle aches, and exhaustion. The main difference between symptoms of smallpox and monkeypox is that monkeypox causes lymph nodes to swell (lymphadenopathy) while smallpox does not. The incubation period (time from infection to symptoms) for monkeypox is usually 7−14 days but can range from 5−21 days.The illness begins with:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Backache
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Chills
  • Exhaustion

Within 1 to 3 days (sometimes longer) after the appearance of fever, the patient develops a rash, often beginning on the face then spreading to other parts of the body.

Lesions progress through the following stages before falling off:

  • Macules
  • Papules
  • Vesicles
  • Pustules
  • Scabs

The illness typically lasts for 2−4 weeks. In Africa, monkeypox has been shown to cause death in as many as 1 in 10 persons who contract the disease.

Management of suspected cases of monkeypox

Practice good hand hygiene after contact with infected animals or humans. For example, washing your hands with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Avoid contact with animals that could harbour the virus (including animals that are sick or that have been found dead in areas where monkeypox occurs). Avoid contact with any materials, such as bedding, that has been in contact with a sick animal or person.

Treatment

Currently, there is no proven, safe treatment for monkeypox virus infection. For purposes of controlling a monkeypox outbreak in the United States, smallpox vaccine, antivirals, and vaccinia immune globulin (VIG) can be used. 

Madiba explains reaction to Jackie Matubia’s pregnancy despite her using birth control

Kenyan actor Blessing Lungaho aka Madiba has revealed he wasn’t shocked when his bae Jackie Matubia fell pregnant while on family planning.

Matubia and Madiba are expectant with their first child. Speaking during an interview with Kalondu Musyimi he shared,

Somethings you just take them a day at a time. Men are made to provide and protect, fear is not in that direction. I had to contact my doctor to join in and help out.”

Madiba says he is not sure whether he will be in the delivery room adding that he is being advised against it.

If she asks me to leave sawa, if she needs me there I will be there, but I have been advised against it.”

Matubia had earlier taken to her YouTube to reveal that she got pregnant despite being on family planning.

I knew I was pregnant at 8 weeks. There is an event I went to and we partied hard. I went to backstage and missed a step and fell. When I went to my friends I told them about it and we even laughed about it.”

Matubia did not know at the time that she was expectant. She only learned that a few days later.

The next day my left side butt cheek had a swelling. That day I just stayed indoors. The next day I wasn’t feeling well, I even thought I had covid. I had no appetite, and his cologne was irritating me. I was at a point where I never thought I could be pregnant again.”

Matubia says when she got to the hospital she was given different tests while waiting for the results.

“Between my last period and the time of conception, when I was getting pregnant I was on family planning (an injection)

The doctor told me I was 8 weeks pregnant, I froze when the doctor told me that. 

I did not know whether to laugh, cry or shout. Zahri’s (1st born) was something I had planned for. 

In This second pregnancy, I wasn’t ready because our relationship was just in the ‘honeymoon’ period.”

Zari responds to critics on why she never visited Mama Diamond

Zari Hassan has responded to trolls who questioned why she never visited Diamond’s mum when she went to Tanzania over the weekend.

The businesswoman arrived in Dar Es Salaam and then flew to Mwanza for a charity event.

Well, fans have come after her for not visiting Mama Dangote, Diamond Platnumz’s mother. Speaking on Instagram, Zari said she saw Mama Dangote but never posted on social media.

“Nisipoenda Madale ama Mbezi watu wanasema oh hawamtaki hajaonana naye, Nikienda mnasema oh Zari anapenda kuji-super glue kwa hiyo familia. Nikienda na nisipoenda mnaongea, sasa mtu afanye nini?”

(If I don’t go to Madale or Mbezi, people complain that I haven’t seen her (Mama Dangote). If I go people say I am glueing myself to that family. What do you want? I go or not, you talk. What should I do?)

Zari added that she told Mama Dangote that she came for business when they met.

“Why are you feeling the pain when Zari doesn’t see Mama Dangote? Why? How does that profit you? Do you want us to take a photo and put it on Instagram? Some of us don’t like Instagram live. We don’t.”

She went back to South Africa, where she is based saying she was tired as she went straight to work.

“I just want to get some things off my chest because some people think that when you respond it comes out as insecure. It is the narrative that people think they know how I should live my life, how people think they own me. But guys everybody is living their lives, you don’t know why I live my life that way.”

Zari Hassan and Diamond Platnumz

While at a club in Tanzania, she was seen grinding on a younger unidentified man whom people have called her new lover. Zari said;

“People don’t get into relationships for them to end. They get into relationships hoping they will work out. But along the way, things don’t work out. I’m not the kind of person who will get scared that people will say that I move on so fast.”

She went on to call out people who’ve asked her to stay at home as she is a mother;

“Which one of my kids needs to be breastfed? I am fully involved in my children’s lives. I take care of my kids more than some of you do. I am a single mother tryna raise my kids on my own”

Zari said she was not giving up on love admitting she is fast to move on.

“I am not going to settle for less. I should not stick there because of social media pressure. I move on quickly. I don’t have these emotions for crying and healing. For who? For a man?”

She concluded by telling her fans that she will not be part of the depression statistics.

Baha-I thought I would be intimate with Georgina on a daily basis…

Celebrity couple Georgina Njenga and his bae Tyler Mbaya have shared some of the expectations they had before they moved in together.

The couple moved in together the first day they became a couple. Through Georgina’s YouTube channel, the couple started:

Finances
Georgina says couples should not shy away from discussing finances and how or who will pay for what.
“Money is an important topic that we had not discussed when we moved in together. One thing I have learned is that money can make couples fight very easily. Money is a sensitive topic in a relationship. Couples should discuss finances before moving in together.” advised Georgina.

Tyler says when he and Georgina moved in, he did not expect a girlfriend who entirely depends on him.
He wanted someone who could help settle some of the bills.


Different personalities
Georgina says it’s only after she moved in with Baha that she realized they had different tastes.
Eg she loves Disney movies while Baha doesn’t because the movies have the same plot.
Georgina loves Kenyan music while Bahati loves underground music.


Washroom etiquette

Georgina says she has to keep complaining every single day because he does not put down the toilet flap.

He also doesn’t flush the toilet when he pees.

Daily intimacy

When the couple moved in together Baha thought he would be given his conjugal rights daily.

He was shocked to learn that kwa ground vitu ni different

“Most youngins come from teenagehood with all the energy. They think having sex is something that happens daily. I had too many expectations,’ says Baha.

Adding, “You shouldn’t expect [email protected] so much, it is good to focus on some other things. It is better that way (not every day).”


House chores
Baha says he doesn’t mind helping out with some household chores.

Informing your partner you are bringing around friends

“Initially I did not think I had to inform Baha that I was bringing in friends. This is because Baha might have something planned hence that might ruin our plans,” advised Georgina.

Baha says Georgina is notorious for bringing over her friends.

Informing your partner of your whereabouts

“I had been a bachelor for 4 years before I met Georgina, but now I have to tell her where I am, in case something happens,” shared Baha

Baha’s gf Georgina on why their baby came 7 weeks early

Machachari actor, Tyler Mbaya, has revealed their daughter was born at 33 weeks instead of the normal 40 weeks.

This was after his girlfriend Georgina went into labor during Baha’s birthday photoshoot.

Sharing her experience via her YouTube channel, Georgina shared,

We thought we were having false labor only to be told that I was 8cm dilated. We had gone for Baha’s birthday photoshoot. I later noticed my mucus plug had fallen off and it was bloody. We had been given bed rest but I decided to come to the hospital and confirm, we did not want to take a risk.”

Georgina says she hopes her child will grow up healthy despite her coming early.

“When we called the doctor he insisted that we go to the hospital. We were very shocked as it is something we had not experienced before. June 23rd, so the baby came early by a month and 2 weeks. We did not have any baby clothes as we came directly to the hospital after we left Baha’s photo shoot.”

During a Q&A session with her fans on Instagram, the 21-year-old lass answered several questions from her fans. One fan asked what was the one thing Georgina had earned since moving in with Baha.

And how do the couple deal with their disagreements?

“Arguments are there and they are about the prettiest things ever most of the time. But always find a solution the number of times I packed my clothes when we started living together but alikuwa anamake sure sjaenda (he would make sure I don’t leave).”

Although she did not have a perfect relationship with her parents, Kansiime encouraged her fans to treasure their parents while they are still alive.

“It’s okay not to like them but you are better than me, who is now an orphan.

 Parents always know better than us, whether we see it or not.”

Kansiime praised her mum for being supportive when her first marriage failed.

“Now I’m always worried about who is going to stand in that gap then I’m reminded that we orphans we are God’s firstborn.”

Kansiime said the loss of her parents made her appreciate life even more.

“There are some of my friends who don’t get it. My fans who know me knew that my mum and I didn’t see eye to eye,” she said.

“I remember there was a time she gave my school choir teacher permission to beat me every day nearly for the whole time,” she said.

Needy form 1 student reports to school with nothing but a Jogoo

A 15-year-old form 1 student has touched the hearts of many after reporting to Kangaru High School with nothing but a Cockerel (jogoo).

The needy student wanted to give out the Cockerel to the school administration in exchange for him being allowed in school.

The boy identified as Lawrence Murimi woke up and told his mum that he could no longer continue staying at home.

Since he got his admission letter, the family has not been able to raise his school fees. Murimi had earlier been given the Cockerel by his uncle.

He caught the Cockerel and requested his mum to escort him to school adding that they might get lucky.

Their hopes were however dashed after they were sent back home by the teacher, something that left them in tears.

Having no other hope, mother and son went back home.

Lawrence Murimi’s mum breaks down after being to go back home for reporting to school with a Cockerel but no school fees

Murimi’s mum now says the teacher suggested they look for a day school that they can afford to pay for.

Below are some of the reactions to the story

Njîhia Mûrû Wa Njuguna: Such stories break my heart. It reminds me of myself and my best friend. He had scored 504 marks out of the possible 700 marks in 1995.

He was admitted to Nyeri High school. When they turned up with his mother they were turned away. By the time they reached Banana, it was already at night.
They had to borrow somewhere to sleep. To cut the long story, we studied at the local school.
Today the guy has served in one of the elite Forces in the USA. My story is for another day.

Tabby Francis: I feel for them but it’s always good to take action and the idea of taking a step of faith will see doors of greatness opening…fear what God can connect divinely.

David Ihura: People are going through tough times, but the grace of God will be sufficient. Forget not that Isaac harvested 100 fold in times of severe drought (Gen 26:12) If God’s purpose is that we also harvest in the tempest of storms, it shall come to pass. Courage, young man.

Lilies Mwangi: Aki children are not supposed to suffer this much. And now the same government is scrapping classes seven and eight to introduce junior secondary wazazi walipe. Sometimes I feel like I can take a gun n shoot some people in this country.

I unknowingly paid 6 months’ rent for a married woman-Man tells Maina

In his latest song, ‘Kanairo’ Sammidoh highlights all the bad vices that go on within the city, especially for newbies coming to the city for the 1st time.

There is always a joke that if you have never been conned then you cannot tell any tale about Kanairo.

During the Morning Conversation on Classic 105, Kenyans narrated to Maina Kageni and his co-host Mwalimu King’angi how they were welcomed to Nairobi.

Baba Zuri narrated how he unknowingly paid rent for a married woman he had met at a club.

“I met a lady in the club, we talked and did what people do. I never realized that she was a married woman, it took me 6 months to find out. All along I was paying rent for a married woman.”

Baba Zuri says the woman had devised ways to con him among them colluding with the husband to pose as the doctor.

“She used to lie that has been hospitalised, yet she had turned her bedroom into her hospital.
Ilikuwa inakaa a real hospital bed. The husband was the doctor and he would even call me and give me the progress of the patient.”


A caller identified as Paul says he was duped of 15K when he went to buy a TV in the CBD.

“I went to buy a TV in Luthuli avenue. About 5 guys were selling the TVs not knowing that there was a conman there. I gave him 15K and he told me to wait while he goes and gets the TV. When I asked the other guys said they did not know him. I waited for that TV in vain.”

*Kama says he was duped when he was sold a phony phone.

“I went to buy a phone in the streets of Nairobi, I window shopped and found a guy who had phones. We sat down at a cafeteria as he showed me the options he had. I chose one and gave it back to him so that he could put it in the box.
He told me to charge for 5 hours, when I got home and tried putting the phone on I realized the phone was made of mud.”

*Njoro says he was conned when he was alongside his aunt.

My aunt and I were out in the CBD when we decided to buy some clothes. I found a good shirt going for 1K and she found a good dress going for 500 bob. When we got home I told my cousins to stop borrowing my shirts.
I then went to my room to try the shirt on only to find out the guys had wrapped banana leaves. They were so bad even our goats couldn’t eat them.”

Mike Mondo delivered over 90 babies during his days as a nurse

Classic 105 host Mike Mondo men should not be present in the delivery room when their wives are giving birth as delivery is not a rosy affair.

Mike says people should stop assuming that childbirth is what they see on movies or YouTube. Mondo who is a qualified nurse says that it is the women in your wife’s life who should be present.

Speaking during an interview with Kalondu Musyimi, he advised,

“Men should stay outside the door and let their sister, your mum, your mum-in-law be there,” he said.

Mike said men are of no use to their wives while in the delivery room.

“In most cases, they will end up being stressed out after the experience,” he said.

Talking about his experience as a nurse before he decided to join radio, Mike shared,

“During my time in the career, I delivered more than 90 babies as a nurse, and I would never encourage a man to be around. It is simple, would a woman be allowed to stay when her son is being circumcised?”

He also said he can never deliver his child since there are so many emotions. Mike Mondo worked as a nurse for a year at a Kilifi hospital.

That is when he moved to Nairobi and started looking for something else to do.

“I delivered over 90 babies, 11 breach deliveries. I have also assisted in Caesarean-section and have done normal deliveries,” he said.

Mike also addressed marriage, saying he would never force to be in one.

“I would want to pursue marriage. Do I believe in it? I don’t know yet, but I would love to pursue it, he said.

“Marriage is not for everyone and I say, don’t ever feel bad if you never get married. Enjoy that single life. Marriage in my opinion is not about falling in love and has nothing to do with love.”

Mike said marriage is when two people can handle each other.

“It is for companionship. It is not about the roses and so on. The most important thing is to be able to stick through it,” he said.

Kenyan celebrities who have been in the delivery rooms with their wives include Frankie Kiarie also known as Frankie JustGymIt, and DJ Moz also known as Kimathi Mathenge.

Also present in the delivery room was Kabi Wa Jesus, he has been present during the 2 deliveries of his wife Milly Wa Jesus.

Do you think fathers should be in the delivery room?

Anerlisa Muigai’s posh Lavington home stormed by auctioneers

A lawsuit against Keroche Breweries heiress Anerlisa Muigai from 2018 has culminated in drama in the posh apartments in Lavington.

Back in 2018, Mwananchi Credit Limited and Dennis Mombo sued Anerlisa for defaulting in paying a loan of Ksh 13m.

According to the suit paper, “She defaulted in servicing the loan leading to the institution of HCCC No. 357 of 2017 which was referred for mediation; that when the suit was pending mediation, the defendant negligently and recklessly published on social media namely her Facebook and Instagram platforms untrue allegations against the plaintiffs which were defamatory.

That the publications against the plaintiffs in their natural and ordinary meaning meant and were understood to mean inter alia that the 1st plaintiff company was incorporated to carry out fraudulent business under the guise of a lending institution.

That the 2nd plaintiff is a fraudster who uses his company to defraud people and he had colluded with one Ben Kangangi to defraud the defendant of KShs.20,000,000.”

Following the suit, a decree by the high court was signed by the deputy registrar on October 26, 2020, reads: ” That the judgment be and is hereby entered in favour of the 2nd Plaintiff (Dennis Mombo) against the Defendant (Anerlisa) in the sum of Ksh 2,500,000.”

Adding that “the amount will attract interest from 14th November 2019 until payment in full.”

Mike Mondo-I cheated on my ex with 3 of her friends after she cheated on me

Classic 105 host Mike Mondo has said he doesn’t regret cheating on his ex-girlfriend with 3 of her friends a few years back.

Speaking to Kalondu Musyimi, Mike says he chose to character develop the lady after she cheated with his friend.

“I character developed someone by sleeping with 3 of her friends. She was hollaing at one of my friends and the brother of this guy told me about it. I approached the guy and told him not to let her know I had found out she was cheating on me.”

Mike says although cheating is not something to be proud of, he gave the lady a dose of her own medicine.
“I always say that when you pretend you know too much I react to how you treat me. If you want to cheat, I will show you a different of how big boys play it. And when we do you will end up getting hurt.”

Mike says the lady never found out about him cheating on her.
Asked if he regrets doing it? “I have no regrets but I can’t do that now, sahi nimezeeka.”

There are different reasons why people cheat, these may be;

To seek revenge
Some people cheat to get back at their partners who might have strayed as well.
To soothe their ego
Some people, both men, and women cheat to soothe their ego and cover their insecurities.
Low esteem
Some cheat to seek validation from other people.
This mainly happens when the person they love doesn’t validate them.
Some have issues arising from a lack of good performance and small tools.
Getting someone who accepts them, and that person is not their partner might make one cheat.
Lust
Some people cheat because they are lustful and want to fulfill their sexual fetishes.

Mike had in the past revealed that some men like messy divorces or separations, saying,

I have seen couples go through messy separations. You find a man chasing out his wife and yet he is the one who is supposed to move out. Or you find a man taking away his wife’s car but with white people things are very different.”

Everyday house hold items your teen might be using to get high

Wondering how your teen gets high yet you never give him cash to buy drugs? He/she might be using items at home.

Below are everyday household items your son or daughter might be abusing.

Some teens inhale household products like 

Glue

Glue is present in most homes, it can be furniture glue or the one used on shoes by cobblers.

Glue can be consumed through different methods among them

Sniffing of vapors directly from an open container or a surface soaked with the substance.

Oral inhalation from a rag or cloth soaked in a volatile substance that is held over the mouth or nose; or 

 Bagging involves breathing in and out of a paper or plastic bag filled with a small amount of a volatile substance.

Aerosol sprays

Sniffing aerosol spray cans “can directly induce heart failure and death.

People who use nitrous to get high usually transfer the gas into another container, like a balloon. 

Then they inhale the gas from the balloon. Examples of this include toilet fresheners’ furniture cleaning spray, etc.

Cleaning fluids

These fluids are mostly abused due to their easy availability and the fact that they do not arouse suspicion.

The most commonly abused cleaning agents include dry cleaning fluid, spot removers, and degreasers. These fluids typically vaporize at room temperature and are easy to ingest via the mouth or nasal pathways. 

Nutmeg/Kukumanga

Nutmeg is used as a spice in many Kenyan households.

What most parents do not know is that it contains a chemical that may give you a feel-good high if you get enough of it.

Nutmeg poisoning can give you heart palpitations and make you feel dizzy, nauseous, tired, or anxious. Some people have died from eating too

gas from whipped cream cans

Aftershave

This is used to reduce breakouts, razor burn, or razor bumps when shaving.

Some teens drink this to get high, this can lead to alcohol poisoning, seizures, coma, or even death.

Hand sanitizer

Drinking this can lead to alcohol poisoning, seizures, coma, or death.

Bath salts

This is a crystalline substance that is dissolved in bathwater to soften or perfume it.

It is mostly used in bathtubs.

It can be swallowed, snorted, or injected. 

Once used the bath salt can cause a feeling of joy or boost sex drive. 

But it could also make you feel drunk, get violent, or lose touch with reality. 

The salt bath is addictive and can cause symptoms such as chest pain, panic attacks, hallucinations, and in some instances death.

Deodorant

In May 2022, an Australian girl was found dead by her mum on mothers day.

Ryan believes her daughter died of sudden sniffing death syndrome and suffered a heart attack.

The girl’s mother said she was inhaling the deodorant with her boyfriend when she went into cardiac arrest, leaving her with brain damage.

Alcohol tampons

Teens soak tampons in vodka, then put them in their vaginas or rectums. 

There’s no proof that this works. What’s more, the vodka may burn sensitive vaginal or rectal tissue. In rare cases, it has caused colitis.

It can be hard for such teens to get treatment when they get alcohol poisoning because the teenager’s breath has no alcohol smell.

The symptoms to look out for include

  • Frequent headaches
  • Excessive use of deodorant or other aerosol sprays
  • Stains and chemical odors on towels and clothes
  • Disorientation or slurred speech
  • Nausea or loss of appetite
