UoN lecturer Hannah Inyama declared not fit to stand trial in sons death

 

A university lecturer who kept her dead son in her house for allegedly more than two weeks is not fit to be charged.

Hannah Inyama was arrested last month after the body of her 13-year-old son was found wrapped in a blanket in her house on Nairobi’s South B estate.

An investigating officer told Makadara chief magistrate Heston Nyaga that Inyama is not mentally stable to stand trial over the death of her son, Emmanuel.
According to a psychiatric report, which the officer cited, the University of Nairobi don is not in her right state of mind and was put on medication for a month.

“The suspect has been put on medication, which will be on a daily basis and is required to appear in hospital on November 29 to check her progress,” the investigator said.

He added that Inyama will undergo medication until she gets well. The magistrate released Inyama to her parents, who were in court, and ordered her to report to the police every Friday. He also directed the matter to be mentioned on December 3 for further directions.

Inyama had been detained by the police for 10 days to allow them to finish investigations. The suspect allegedly stayed with the body for at least two weeks in Kifaru Apartments. She had invited church members to her home to sing and praise God.

She is a specialist in post-resuscitation care of the critically ill. This involves optimising ventilation and circulation and preserving organ and tissue function.

Last month, police boss Philip Ndolo told The Star that they were tipped off by neighbours about a foul smell emanating from the house. They broke in and found Emmanuel’s body wrapped in a blanket in the sitting room.

The mother told them the boy had fallen and died in the sixth-floor apartment.
“She said she did not take him to a hospital because she does not believe in hospitals,” Ndolo said.

“My officers tried knocking but nobody opened the door. After five minutes, they broke in. The woman by that time was hiding in the kitchen. It is like she heard us breaking in and rushed to hide.”

Ndolo said the boy was studying in a private school where he was to sit his KCPE exam.

Postmortem results for UON lecturer Hannah Inyama’s son revealed

The death of Emmanuel Inyama is still a  mystery. His mother Hannah Inyama, a University of Nairobi lecturer has been questioned by investigators but some of her answers have raised more questions than answers.

Hannah had told police that her son fell in the house and hurt himself. However, post-mortem results may paint a differing picture to that of Ms Inyama.

According to Government Pathologist Peter Ndegwa, the autopsy done on Thursday evening revealed many possible reasons for the death. The pathologist saying that Emmanuel could have been stressed, and was almost 100 kilogrammes.

The pathologist also added that Emmanuel might have died of stomach ulcers and obesity-related complications, contradicting the mother’s earlier reports to the police.

‘He was unkempt. his hair was unshaven. He was not in a very good state and he was very obese. His ulcers could have been stress-induced,’ Ndegwa said.

The postmortem findings also showed that Emmanuel did not have any physical injuries on the body. The boy’s body was discovered by the caretaker of Kifaru Front Apartments in South B.

The ironic thing about this whole affair is that Hannah’s reason for not taking her son to hospital was that she didn’t belive in them, yet she was a practitioner in the industry.

Hannah has been active in training health care providers on emergency courses such as neonatal resuscitation, basic and advanced life support.

Her research interests are in neonatal and obstetric emergencies, adult intensive care and resuscitation. She is in the final stages of her research that started in 2013.
