Omar Lali set to testify as Tecra Muigai’s death inquest resumes

The inquest into the murder of Tecra Muigai, the daughter of Keroche Breweries owners Tabitha and Joseph Karanja, will continue on Tuesday, a year after her death.

Tecra died on May 2, 2020, at the Nairobi Hospital after she allegedly fell down steep stairs at a house in Lamu. Her boyfriend Omar Lali was arrested and kept in custody but the DPP dropped the murder case against him in July and ordered an inquest.

Six witnesses who carried Tecra to hospital are expected to testify before Milimani principal magistrate Zainab Abdul.

The six—Qusai Lali Omar, Ali Bakari Muhammed, Abdul Lali Omar, Yaya Salim Muhammed, Ahmed Ali Sali and Mohammed Omar Muhanji—were summoned by the magistrate after they declined to board a van sent by the DPP to testify.

Abdul also summoned Omar Lali, Tecra’s former lover, to appear for the next hearing, either in person or through an advocate, as he might be a witness in the inquest.

So far, 11 of 44 witnesses have testified, including Tecra’s mother Tabitha, brother James Karanja and househelp Anne Waithera.

The brother of Keroche heiress Tecra said she told him her affair with Lali was not ordinary but spiritual and obsessive. He said Omar tried to separate Tecra from her family and did not associate with them.

He said that most times Tecra said “it is not a normal relationship between her and Lali as it was more of a spiritual one.”

James added that when he went to Lamu with his girlfriend, he met Tecra with her friend Yvonne who told him that Lali uses witchcraft to seduce women. Tecra’s househelp said the two fought frequently when they lived in Naivasha and Tecra told her that he beat her at night.

“I was shocked because I knew Tecra’s past boyfriends. The relationship with Lali struck me as unusual. There was something unconventional, Lali was more than 30 years older. His lifestyle too was far removed from what he had known of Tecra’s previous liaisons,” he told court.

Tecra’s house help Waithera told the court how Tecra refused to let her mother and family members enter the house after they travelled to see her in Naivasha.

She said after Tecra sent a photo of Omar to her mother, she told Waithera her mother was not happy and decided to visit her.

She said when Omar heard that Tabitha had visited Tecra, he disappeared to the bush near the lake to avoid being seen. Omar came back in the evening without a phone. He had thrown it in the river thinking he would be traced, she surmised.

“Many times, when I reported to work in the morning, I would see Tecra crying and when I asked, she would say Omar had beaten her at night,” she testified.

Tecra’s driver, Eric Cheruiyot said he verbally abused the deceased and threatened him on two occasions.

Tabitha testified that her daughter made large money transfers to Omar.

“He was after my daughter’s hard-earned income and when she realised that she could not give him money anymore, he killed her,” she said.

She had filed an affidavit in which she alleged that DPP Noordin Haji is under pressure from a third party not to prosecute those responsible for her daughter’s death.

Chunga Omar Lali!!! Lupita Nyong’o warned as she vacations in Lamu

Lupita Nyong’o dominated the headlines earlier this year after British supermodel Naomi Campbell was given the gig to promote Kenyan tourism to international travelers.

A serious debate ensued with many asking Najib Balala why our own famous export hadn’t been used to promote magical Kenya?

The cabinet secretary responded by saying that getting to the Oscar-winning actress had been a tall task, otherwise the government would have offered her the job.

Miss Nyong’o on her part denied that she had ever been called by the government. While we might never know the truth between the two, one thing we can see is that it has changed Lupita’s traveling habits.

Lupita who usually keeps a very very low profile when she comes to Kenya has decided to announce to every Kenyan that she is at the coast.

Yep, the thespian who has nary made a public visit to the country the last 8 years decided to reveal her whereabouts, something she hasn’t done since her celebrity status exploded.

Mmm…I wonder why? But I digress. The reason I write this story is how Kenyans have decided to turn her triumphant return promoting her lovely Kenya to speak about Omar Lali-the old man implicated in the death of Keroche heiress, Tecra Muigai.

Check out some of the hilarious comments below:

Tecra’s own friend Yvonne believed that Lali used charms to lure women – Brother claims

The inquest into the death of the late Keroche heiress Tecra Muigai has been going on this week with crazier and crazier revelations being spilled by the family of the deceased.

Yesterday was no different as Tecra’s brother James Karanja told Senior Principal Magistrate Zainab Abdul that he believed that Omar Lali had bewitched his late sister.

James said that he believed that Omar Lali used ‘spiritual powers’ to lure his sister into loving him. Until her death, Tecra was the Strategy and Innovations Director at Keroche Breweries, a company owned by her parents.

Karanja explained that his deceased sister confided to him that “she had an unusual uncontrollable spiritual obsession towards Lali” and that she could not walk out of that relationship however much she attempted to.

“It was spiritual. She had an abnormal obsession with him,” he told the inquest. Of note was a visit that he made to Tecra in Lamu in November 2019.

“We met with Tecra at the hotel where I was booked. She came accompanied by her friend Yvonne. When Tecra stepped out for a while I asked Yvonne about Mr. Omar,” Karanja recalled.

He said that Yvonne had her concerns with the relationship and that she suspected that “Omar used charms to lure women”.

Another person who also spoke during the inquest was the late’s househelp, Anne Waithera. Anne spoke of an abusive and violent relationship between the deceased and Lali.

Waithera alleged that a violent Lali “controlled Tecra” who would in turn deny her mother access to her Naivasha home whenever Lali was present. “They would sleep in different beds (after quarrels). I noticed wine was poured all over their bedroom when I went to make the room,” she said.

The inquest continues.

“I heard Tecra Muigai unleash a heavy slap on Mr. Omar Lali” Former bodyguard reveals

The inquest into the death of Keroche heiress Tecra Muigai is revealing more and more troubling details about Omar Lali, the late Tecra’s boyfriend.

Eric Bett Cheruiyot, a former Kenya Defence Force(KDF) Officer who worked as the late’s bodyguard and driver painted the picture of a troubled love affair saying for the nine months he worked for Tecra, she never lived peacefully with her lover.

Eric Cheruiyot who worked for Tecra Muigai between May 2019 and January 2020 said that Lali was a jealous, possessive and protective man, who twice threatened him.

The former soldier said that Lali would retreat to a solitary table and stay alone for hours while Tecra would join her friends for business engagements which annoyed her lover.

The court heard that after the party, the girlfriend of Tecra’s brother James Karanja grabbed Tecra’s handbag from Lali and handed it over to the bodyguard.

“Leave Tecra alone you are an old man and she is a young woman,” James’ girlfriend Victoria reportedly barked at Lali. The bodyguard also added that Lali hurled unprintable insults at Tecra calling her, “ B****, M******, I*****. I couldn’t take it. I told Omar that she was my boss and he couldn’t call her those names,” said the bodyguard.

It is during this confrontation that Lali allegedly threatened: “You do not know me, I will make you disappear and your children will never see you again.”

Cheruiyot added that Omar had threatened him again when they met in Lamu, reminding him about their confrontation in Dar es Salaam.

He said he had to quit after he reported the threats to Tecra citing a hostile work environment.

He also revealed that Tecra had once thrown out Lali from their Naivasha home, leaving the 51-year-old in tears but only for the two to reconcile two hours later.

Cheruiyot added that Tecra had once slapped Lali outside a Naivasha hotel when he had refused to board her vehicle to proceed to another hotel where she was to meet some friends.

“Tecra grabbed Mr. Lali’s shirt and forced him to board their vehicle but he resisted. It’s then I heard Tecra unleash a heavy slap on Mr. Lali then he boarded the vehicle,” Mr. Cheruiyot narrated.

Lali’s reason for not wanting to meet the two friends was that they were “not good people.” Cheruiyot said Tecra had vowed to leave Lali but it never came to pass.

The photos show a happy and at peace Tecra with the bearded Omar, with the couple at different locations. To the naked eye, one could see the comfort and warmth the two had for each other.

Who is Omar?

According to reports in The-Star,  Omar is a 54-year-old beachboy from Lamu loved living life on the fast lane with his neighbours in Shella Beach town say he loves moneyed women, especially white ones.

Shella is a popular residential town for most tourists who visit Lamu. Being a resident makes it easy for him to meet and interact with rich women, eventually luring them into relationships.

But the relationships don’t last, it is said, once Omar gets what he wants. He dumps the woman and moves to the next one with lightning speed.

He is even believed to have sired a child with a white woman. Omar is known for his sweet tongue and acting the perfect gentleman. It is these qualities, it is believed, that endeared him to Tecra in the first place.

Unconfirmed reports indicate the two first met mid last year when Tecra was stranded over a bill that had accrued at a local hotel where she had been staying.

Omar moved in to beseech the hotel administration to go easy on her and allow her to pay in instalments to avoid embarrassing her.

There are also rumours that Omar, a native of the Bajuni community, uses ‘other powers’ to lure unsuspecting rich women into relationships before fleecing them.

Many people said the beaded necklaces and many rings worn by Omar are, in fact, powerful charms.

Omar loves dogs and is often spotted walking several canines on leashes on the beaches of Shella and in Lamu town.

Omar said that the couple was planning to exchange vows barely a month before she fatally fall. Omar added that Tecra was the best person he had ever met in life, a beautiful soul who would fear things both big and small, animals and people, basically everything apart from him.

Omar said that Tecra would jump into his arms and was very distrusting of people and that whenever she would walk on the streets alone, she would always look behind her and stop whenever she suspected malicious people following her.

Omar said that he was successful in changing this behaviour in her. Omar also described his first visit to Tecra’s family home in Naivasha.

The bearded 50-year-old man said that her parents weren’t as accomodating of the idea of the relationship. He said that Tecra’s mother especially gave him a tough time calling him derogatory terms after she had seen his photos with her.

Omar didn’t take the insults to heart because he thought of Tabitha as an elderly lady and he was willing to forgive. Apparently, that meeting wouldn’t be the end of their relationship as both their families met to try and hash out a way forward for their potential wedding.

Omar said that he had proposed to Tecra when the two had visited a waterfall, months after they met on June 6, 2019.

Lali told detectives Tecra fell down a flight of stairs and hurt her head.

Lali will not, however, be detained during the 30-day duration of the investigations.

He was released on May 27 by the same court on Sh300,000 bond and two sureties provided by his mother and brother-in-law.

The Lamu court refused to extend the pre-trial detention of Lali as had been requested by the DPP and the DCI.

Until her death on May 2 this year, Tecra was the strategy and innovations director at Keroche Breweries.

She died at a Nairobi hospital after sustaining injuries after falling down a flight of stairs in a house she shared with Lali on April 27.

Lali was arrested on May 3, a day after Tecra’s demise and remained in detention close to a month before he was released on bond.
