A woman has been found guilty of murdering her husband, dismembering his body and dumping the body parts in a quarry at Machakos County.

Mary Njoki Ng’ang’a, 50, was on Thursday convicted of brutally executing her husband in cold-blood at Kangemi estate Nairobi by cutting up his body into small pieces then stuffing the body parts in a travelling bag.

The Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi was told how Njoki wrapped the parts with bed sheets which she dumped in a quarry at Lukenya in Athi River Machakos County three years ago.

Quarry workers would later discover the rotting body parts after noticing a strong stench and many flies swarming over it.

The workers notified the police about their discovery and when the bag was retrieved, the rotting body of a male adult was found inside.

The court was also told how Ms Njoki had reported to the police the alleged kidnapping of the deceased by a three-man gang which she claimed attacked them at their Kangemi residence in Nairobi County on the night of December 14/15, 2015.

The accused also reportedly told her children that the attackers ambushed them inside their five bed-room house at Marenga, assaulted and left her for dead before kidnapping their father, James Ng’ang’a Ritho, who at the time was a 60-year-old petroleum dealer.

While convicting the accused, Lady Justice Stellah Mutuku dismissed her defense, terming it as a fabricated story to cover-up the accused’s heinous actions which ended the life of her husband of 30 years.”

Lady Justice Mutuku ruled that

“This court finds that state prosecutor Ms Mercel Ikol proved beyond reasonable doubt that you premeditated the killing of your husband. You are hereby convicted for the offence of murder contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the penal code,”

In mitigation, Ms Njoki said she is remorseful and highly regrets her actions which resulted into her husband’s death.

“I’m a reformed person as I stand before you. Sometime one makes mistake in life then regrets as I do. Give me a second chance.”

Machakos church shut down over nude worship

Following public complaints on Wednesday from residents in Masinga, Machakos County a church has been closed indefinitely after reports that the worshippers undress during prayers.

According to the Star Newspaper, the deputy county commissioner Muraya Mwangi said that there had been complaints that the church goers especially the women undress in church before being prayed for.

The church only allows women to attend the Healing Ministries Church Services and they are not bound by a specific time.

Ekalakala chief together with several residents raided the church and found naked women. It was also revealed that the pastor runs the church illegally.

The town’s business community chairman Duncan Mutua revealed to The Star that women spend a lot of their time at the church and even attend night worship.

“We recently stormed the church and caught the pastor pouring water on a naked woman in the name of praying for her,” Mutua said.

The church pastor Joseph Wambua denied the allegations saying that his church is genuine. He says the accusations levelled against him are false and have been caused by chiefs who have been demanding bribes from him.

 

Gor Mahia’s woes persist as FKF locks fans out of matches

Still reeling from the ban from Machakos, KPL table toppers Gor Mahia now face the unenviable job of having to play their last two games of the season in an empty stadium.

Football Kenya Federation made the decision after reviewing Sunday’s events where Gor fans rioted and destroyed property following the 3-2 loss to Sofapaka at the Machakos Stadium.

The FKF statement signed by Secretary General/CEO Michael Esakwa further imposed a half a million shilling fine on the club which is payable within seven days.

Sofapaka did not escape punishment either as FKF castigated the club for failing to provide adequate security during the match as the home team. As a result, Sofapaka will have to pay a fine of Sh300,000 to FKF.

FKF further directed Gor Mahia to provide the identity of a steward fan who broke into the pitch during the match and assaulted the Sofapaka goalkeeper for individual action to be taken against him.

On Monday, Machakos governor Alfred Mutua banned Gor Mahia from playing any matches in Machakos and demanded that the club pays Sh10 million for the damage caused by its fans during the Sunday game.
