‘He likes to pluck my hair or burn my clothes’ Woman narrates after panga attack by husband

A 33-year-old mother of six is nursing serious injuries on her legs and right hand following an alleged brutal panga attack by her husband.

Sarah Wangari from Mung’etho village in Ndaragwa on Thursday said her husband, Josphat Kiongo, attacked her on October 4.

 She was at a home where she is employed to take care of livestock and two children aged four and 14.

Wangari said since she married Kiongo more 14 years ago, she has never known peace. Hardly a day passes without Kiongo battering her.

“Sometimes he plucks my hair or he burns all my clothes and threatens to kill me. When I flee with the children, he follows us and causes trouble wherever we go,” she said

Wangari accused her husband of infidelity. If she complains, she is beaten and thrown out in the cold. Wangari said she has never ended the marriage because of the children.

She said at one time he threw a panga at her and injured her left shoulder.

In the latest attack, Wangari said Kiongo rode his motorbike to her place of work and sent one of their children to call her. When she got outside the gate, she saw her husband with a panga.

“I turned back, but it was too late. He cut me on the leg, then pushed me to the ground. He aimed my neck, but I blocked the panga with my right hand,” she said

Residents came to Wangari’s rescue. They took her to Mairo Inya police station and called her younger sister, Rahab Wambui, who took her to Nyahururu Referral Hospital.

Kiongo followed them to the hospital, which is a few metres from Nyahururu police station. Police were notified and he was arrested.

Wambui said her sister recorded a statement at Mairo Inya police post. On Friday, they were told the suspect will be taken to court on Monday, but they later learnt he had been released under unclear circumstances.

Wambui is now hosting her sister and her six children in her single room in Mairo Inya town. She has one child of her own. Wangari is totally depended on her sister and well-wishers who are assisting them.

“My greatest fear is the suspect is still threatening us. If something is not done, he might come and kill us,” she said

She said the suspect burnt the children’s clothes. ”The children stay naked when I wash their clothes. They all crowd on the floor when it is time to sleep”, Wambui said

The county assembly women MCAs’ caucus chairperson, Milka Wanjiru, visited Wangari on Thursday.

She said it is unfortunate that Kiongo continues to do business at Mairo Inya market as if nothing has happened. She said it is even more troubling that he threatens his wife and the people assisting her.

“My prayer is that the relevant authorities take action before it is too late,” she said

Wanjiru said cases of domestic violence are on the rise in Nyandarua, but most victims keep silent.

Nyandarua North police boss Timon Odingo told the Star on the phone yesterday Kiongo in not off the hook.

Odingo said the suspect will be arrested and taken to court after a P3 Form is filled once Wangari is healed.

The police boss said Kiongo was released on cash bail as investigations continue.

“The problem with Kenyans is they want instant justice,” he said.

Exposed! Here are the people who were to be killed alongside slain campus girl Sharon Otieno

Sharon Otieno, may her soul rest in peace died a cruel death and it has now emerged she was not meant to die alone but alongside other unidentified victims.

Her body was found dumped in Kodera forest with 8 stab wounds after being abducted alongside Nation journalist Barrack Oduor.

She was in a relationship with Migori Governor Okoth Obado who has confirmed he was the father of her unborn baby.

In what seems to be a new twist, the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti says plotters of Sharon’s murder had planned to kill some of those involved in the murder to cover up the crime.

Kinoti told The Nairobian that,

“Between three to five people who knew about Sharon’s murder were to be killed. Luckily, we uncovered the conspiracy.”

Governor Obado is one of the suspects who has been arraigned in court over the murder.

At least six people have been linked to the gruesome murder of the former Rongo University student, who was seven months pregnant with Obado’s baby at the time of her murder.

Besides  Obado,  his aides at the county, Michael Oyamo and Caspal Obiero; bodyguard Elvis Omondi; taxi driver Jack Gombe and former Kanyadoto MCA Lawrence Mula, have also been charged with the murder. Three other suspects are still at large.

Friends For Life: Dennis itumbi shows major support for Jacque Maribe

Dennis Itumbi is out here supporting his best friend Jacque Maribe.

The TV anchor was yesterday questioned at by the police Kilimani station over the murder of 28-year-old woman Monica Nyawira Kimani.

Maribe’s fiance, Jowie – real name Joeseph Irungu – is the prime suspect.

In a lengthy post, Itumbi revealed that Maribe and Jowie’s relationship has been a journey and it’s genuine love not based on materialistic things as many claim.

‘Let me comment on the issues facing my good friend Jacque Maribe

I HAVE SPOKEN TO HER AND SHE WILL OBVIOUSLY TELL HER STORY TO THE POLICE. SHE WILL TELL HER STORY.

I HAVE NOT ASKED FOR DETAILS, THOSE DETAILS BELONG TO DETECTIVES AM SURE SHE WILL NARRATE WHAT SHE KNOWS AND IS SURE ABOUT.

FROM WHERE I SIT JACQUE FELL IN LOVE WITH A GUY THAT CONNECTED WITH HER WHOLE BEING.

THEIR LOVE DID NOT START WITH THE PROPOSAL. IT HAS BEEN A JOURNEY OF LOVE AND AFFECTION.

IT IS A STORY OF GENUINE LOVE, AT LEAST FROM THE EYES OF FRIENDS.

“We all fall in love with strangers and as we grow in the connection we learn each other.

We learn each other strengths and weaknesses, we draw our boundaries, we try to strengthen each other.

If she does not keep time, you teach her with consensual reward and punishment. If he prefers to throw his socks everywhere you develop a way to end the bachelor thrill with a similar scheme, sometimes it works, sometimes it fails…but love remains and grows from challenge to the next.

We know the drill. Love connects a heart to another, it sets on fire a soul to another human flame.

There is nothing wrong about falling in love and expecting excellence to ooze from the star that twinkles for us even when the night is long gone.”

He went ahead to add that;

JACQUE, IN MY VIEW IS THE REFLECTION OF A GIRL NEXT DOOR, WHO IS IN LOVE. WHAT PERFECTION AND SATISFACTION TO FEEL LIKE YOU ARE A PART OF ANOTHER BEING. TO HAVE INNER WINGS THAT YOU FLAP IN AWESOMENESS BECAUSE YOUR EMOTIONS ARE ON A HIGH ONLY DESCRIBED BY A COMBINATION OF ADJECTIVES.

MAYBE LOVE IS SOMEHOW DEMONSTRATED BY THE SOFT WIND THAT BLOWS AS BEAUTIFUL FLOWER BLOSSOMS RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES, PETAL AFTER PETAL STRETCHING ITS SPECTACULAR INNOCENCE TO EMBRACE THE GOLDEN RAYS OF THE YELLOW SUN. WHAT BRIGHTNESS!

WHAT IS WRONG WITH LOVE? NOTHING. LOVING SOMEONE AND OFFERING YOUR ENTIRE LIFE, BODY AND SPIRIT TO THEM UNCONDITIONALLY, IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF HUMAN SACRIFICE.

Having spoken to her, I am convinced she will tell her story of love to the police in detail. For like you and me we all have our stories, some more intense than even hers.

As friends, we can only pray for her.

May God, Love and Truth be her guide.”

He concludes by condoling with the family of the late Monica Kimani by saying;

TO THE FAMILY OF MONICA, ALL I CAN SAY, IS GOD STRETCH HIS HAND AND COMFORT YOU.

I AM CERTAIN THE DCI WILL PROVIDE THE ANSWERS AND WHOEVER COMMITTED THE CRIME WILL CERTAINLY FACE JUSTICE IN THE FULLNESS OF TIME.

 

Many seconded Itumbi and below are just some of their comments;

Ustadh Okello Kimathi Yaani Itumbi today is that one day; I have agreed with your thoughts for the first time in a very long time.

Brabetts Bayern Munich Nice words Literally!! We all fall in love and fall right into shit.

Brian Sang Rutto I read from this post a lot of pain hidden in poetry and submission to fate by you Itumbi. If Jacque escapes a jail term, propose to her…its never too late😂.

Joys Kimani My heart also goes out to Monica’s father, who lost a daughter. From the Facebook posts they also loved each other! It’s heart wrenching seeing a father mourn his daughter in such a distraught manner. I pray he finds peace, I pray he finds justice…

According to family doctor Suleiman Hussein, Saida was admitted to Radiant hospital in Pangani for examination. He said at the point she was rescued, though she could not speak, she was walking but bleeding.

“Doctors have confirmed she is stable and out of danger but she has to undergo a scan to ascertain the cause of the bleeding,”

The abductors reportedly sent text messages to Saida’s husband Mohamed Abdulrahman using their hostage’s phone saying she had bled to death. The phone signal was last traced to Gulshan area, less than three kilometres from Saida’s home in Mvita.

Akirima says

“They even took photos of her lying on the floor in a wrapper but we believe that she was still alive by the time they took that photo.

The police, however, told us the call was made from Sawe in Mtito Andei. They then later told us the phone had been traced to Nairobi.”

He said Saida had received a call from their mother, who is in Lamu, at around 11am asking her to hurry up so she could receive her at the Manda Airstrip.

Akirima adds

“Our sister then boarded a Tuk tuk to Buxton where she was to take a matatu to Malindi. At around 1.30pm, my mum called her again but her phone was off.”

Earlier on Saida’s mother Khadija Bwanaomar had pleaded with the police to secure the lass’ release from the hands of kidnappers.

She said her health has deteriorated since Saida Abdulrahman, 20, went missing on Thursday.

“I have not eaten or slept since then. Please, have mercy on me. I am diabetic and this situation is killing me,” Khadija pleaded.

‘I can only accept responsibility after DNA confirms the children are mine’, Nandi man flees after wife delivers triplets

Eunice Jeptoo, 37, stares at me as I enter the compound of a house she shares with 10 other tenants in Nandi county. Her gaze settles on the still camera dangling on my shoulders.

She is holding her malnourished triplets in her arms, hoping anyone arriving home could bring food or solutions to her 11-month tribulations.

In other families, the arrival of three children at a go could be marked with celebrations and gifts by friends and relatives. However, for Jeptoo, it marked the end of a relationship the couple had nurtured since 2006 ,which yielded two other children: Mercy, aged 11, and Emmanuel, eight.

Her story has dominated local social media networks, including WhatsApp groups, Facebook platforms and in regional vernacular FM radio stations.

Just like many other relationships in the society, Jeptoo entered into a sort of courtship and eventually “come we stay” relationship with a man she thought could protect and take care of her. She already had two other children from a past relationship, and unknown to her, the man she was living with was slowly getting fed up with her.

Jeptoo’s problems started mid-last year, when she informed her husband, Isaac Tanui, that she was pregnant and expecting twins. Little did she know she would get triplets instead.

A routine medical check-up informed her of “unexpected and abnormal” conditions and the need to prepare psychologically for safe delivery.

‘BOMBSHELL’ NEWS

Jeptoo saw the coming children as a blessing in disguise, since it could be an avenue for the couple to solemnise their relationship.

Tanui’s family is a family of means, with a few acres of tea that could enable the children she expected to receive better care. Tanui is a supervisor of green leaf weighing at the Eastern Produce Kenya Ltd-Kapsumbeywo Tea Estates.

But the man saw the news as more of a curse than a blessing. He thought twins would mark an additional family responsibility he was not prepared for. He argued that his family had never had a history of genes of twins.

The news that there was two foetuses in Jeptoo’s womb was nothing short of a “bombshell” in his life.

“Hell broke loose one early morning when he woke up and threw out all my belongings, asking me to leave his house,” Jeptoo says.

The house is in Kapsoo village, Aldai subcounty. The village is famous as a tea-growing zone. It is covered by an endless green blanket of tea bushes, a lucrative cash crop. But after being kicked out, Jeptoo bade farewell to all that.

She gave birth on October 11 last year, after undergoing caesarean section at the Nandi Hills Subcounty Hospital. As informed by nurses during several medical check-ups, Jeptoo was prepared for twins and not triplets.

“I woke up at the theatre to be shown three children and not two as expected. I was dumbfounded. I had nothing to celebrate because their father had taken off,” she recalls tearfully.

Even after being discharged from the hospital, she refused to leave the maternity wing for two weeks.

“They discharged me but I had nowhere to go with the triplets, since I had been hauled out of my matrimonial home by their father,” Jeptoo says.

A nurse at the Nandi Hills hospital was forced to rent a single room (bed-seater) for her not far from the hospital. That’s when she agreed to leave.

 

BIBLICAL INSPIRATION

Jeptoo cites the Biblical teaching where three men, Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego, defied King Nebuchadnezzar and refused to worship Baal, the gods, instead of God.

“I remember they were thrown into the fire but it did not burn them. And I thought, why can’t I give the names to my triplets so that they survive by divine means?” Jeptoo said.

And so she named them: Shadrack Kipruto, Meshack Kipchumba and Abednego Kiprotich. Due to inadequate food, Jeptoo has been unable to have enough milk to suckle the triplets.

Though the kids are malnourished and underweight, Jeptoo is hopeful that one day they will walk and be like other children. She boils maize for her supper and holds her two babies as the other one cries.

“You see, they need milk, but my breasts are empty because I didn’t eat anything for lunch, save for this free maize brought to me by a Good Samaritan,” Jeptoo says.

“The children you are seeing have survived to where they are by the grace of God. I don’t know how I will bring them up, maybe through miracles.”

Jeptoo looks frail. Bones protrude in her chest and neck, depicting the hardship she has undergone, thanks to the “curse” of the triplets.

“At first, I had thought of sneaking out of the hospital incognito, but my situation at the time could not allow, as the wound had not healed,” she says.

“I was troubled and even thought of taking my life, but somehow I managed to overcome.”

Her main problem was where to take the three identical triplets. She expected no one to welcome her after handing over the four other children to relatives.

She regrets that her relationship with Tanui, which had blossomed, was brought to an abrupt end after she conceived the triplets.

Jeptoo is an orphan, having lost both her parents at their home in Chuiyat, Uasin Gishu county. Her four children were taken by relatives, and she’s not sure whether they are in school or not.

SEARCH FOR JUSTICE

Her efforts to have her husband face the law have all come to naught. Tanui has been summoned five times by the children’s office, but he only attended once, where he disowned the triplets and insisted on a DNA analysis if he was to rescind his stance.

Emmanuel Kios, the children’s officer for Nandi-East/Aldai sub-counties, said they had been unable to have Tanui “arrested” or respond to their summons.

“We summoned him through the existing administration channels of his Chepkunyuk location chief, but we are not sure if he received the summons,” Kios says.

Children rights lobbyist Sarah Kosgei said the department was lenient on Tanui. Kosgei chairs the Nandi County Maendeleo ya Wanawake Organisation.

“If they had both been living since 2006 as husband and wife, how comes when she conceived and came to know there was more than one child, he threw her out and took off?” she asked.

“The public must be told the truth and the father of the triplets should take responsibility.”

When contacted by the Star, Tanui, 40, confirmed knowing Jeptoo but claimed the triplets were not his. He said since he has walked out on Jeptoo. He has moved on and is in another relationship with another woman and does not want to be bothered.

“I can only accept responsibility after a DNA confirms the children are actually mine. I’m ready to hand over my blood samples if a court of law orders for them. Our relationship was not meant for marriage,” he said.

Sources say the AP officer packed his gun and sneaked out from Marigat administrative offices where he was guarding that night with his colleague.

The officer was spotted that evening in a pub buying bottled alcohol that he went to drink with his fellow male colleague at the workplace.

“The workmate must have been so drunk that he could not notice him packing the broken parts of his G3 gun in a bag and left” he said.

Reports further allege that the officer used to have endless family quarrels with his wife before the fatal incident.

However Baringo County Police Commander Smallets Munyanzi confirmed the incident saying the matter is still under investigation.

“What we know as at no is that the incident involved an AP officer and we will be able to communicate more information in connection to the same later” he said.

This happens barely seven months after another AP officer from the same station shot himself death a day after returning from one month leave on March.

The deceased 50-year old Daniel Chemjor from Kapsoo in Baringo central Sub-county was on a night duty when he sneaked into a nearby bush and took away his life using his G3 gun, according to his workmate.

“He just resumed duty of Friday after a one month leave, he was not complaining about his job assignment so it may be something to do with family stress” County AP Commander Robinson Ndiwa said.

He has also been complaining of his family and job besides looking stressed since he took his new station.

Wife handed 8 year jail sentence for skinning husband’s private in domestic quarrel

A woman in Kisumu has been sentenced to eight years in jail for causing grievous harm on her husband’s private parts.

Erica Iminza Shihenda, 23, skinned John Kisuvana Tsumala’s private part using a sharp knife while he was asleep at their home in Huruma estate in Eldoret town on the night of May 22.

Eldoret Chief Magistrate Charles Obulutsa said he was satisfied with the evidence presented by the prosecution.

The court heard that the complainant was awakened at 2 am by excruciating pain from his private part which was partially skinned by the sharp knife.

He was saved by doctors who carried out an operation to restore the private parts at the Moi Referral Hospital.

Kisuvana said the incident happened as he slept after a domestic quarrel and he had tried to sort out the matter out of court in vain. He welcomed the verdict. Iminza has 14 days to appeal.

“It was difficult to sort the matter out of court and the law has taken its course. I’m happy for the court decision it will become a lesson to other women in our country who subject men to torture in their homes,” he said.

Obulutsa said the prosecution had proved its case and that evidence indicated that the mother of two committed the offence against her husband.

You don’t have to tell me the world knows and I know you love me so much and I love you too very much.

If I continue writing this, I will write forever. I have known you to be the person of dignity, the man who never gave up. You believed in your dreams, you loved your family more than anything. I’ll always remember your words every morning that babe I have told you I’m your dad not only your husband and I feel very safe in your hands.

Words can never describe your kindness, Those who were close to you know the kind of a person you were.

You always said ‘Kylie my heart, I promise to take care of her’. This is the gift that I couldn’t ask for. I promise you over there Kylie will be taken care of by her strong mum. You always said you trust me, God saw it best not to take both of us because of Kylie I would have been your driver but I don’t know what happened to me I withdrew the journey the last minute. After Kylie fell sick and I had to stay behind to watch her so that I take her to the hospital later in the day. Babes shine on your way. Forever in my heart. I love you so much pakokoo.

RIP my hero”.

It was the second time in 10 days that a viral video prompted public fury, compelling police to act on escalating domestic violence. Valerie Masibo told the Star in an exclusive interview on Sunday.

 

He works at the slaughter house and since we met he has been so brutal. This time, I thought he would slaughter me.

In the latest of many similar cases, Valerie Masibo was battered. She is four months’ pregnant; she has not lost the baby. Valerie was discharged and is recovering at her aunt’s house in Eldoret. She will remain under medical care.

The suspect was arrested in the house and is being held at the Yamumbi police station. He is expected to be charged today. Eldoret South OCPD Wilson Abduba said.

We have the suspect in custody and he will be taken to court to face charges in relation to the crime.

Valerie and Lusuli have been married for five months. Valerie said

This is about the fifth time the man has attacked me viciously but this time it was so serious I could not even see after the beating. I felt like I was dying, but I thank God I am alive and free from his brutality.

She said the man, whom she started dating in March, arrived home last Friday at 6 pm and was very drunk. He accused Valerie of misusing the Sh500 he had given her for rent. Valerie said

I still had the money and as I tried to show it to him he pushed me to the ground and started using his shoe and a cooking stick to beat me.

The men then used a sharp object to cut off part of her ear, causing her to bleed profusely.

She screamed for help but the man locked the door from inside. The neighbours alerted police who arrived at the house but the man had escaped. He was arrested in the same estate.

Valerie said they had known each other for a short while but they decided to stay together when she learned she was pregnant.

She was taken to the police station to identify her attacker. “When he saw me, he could not believe that he was one who inflicted such injuries. He pleaded with me to forgive him but with the suffering I have gone through, I want the law to take its course”, she said.

She said she would never return to her batterer and said she hoped that other women going through the same suffering receive help.
