According to The Nairobian the 30 year old says beautiful Ngirita should not be in jail and is appealing to the government to allow him suffer on her behalf because “I am ready for any crime she has committed to be pinned on me even if it means a jail sentence of 100 years.”
This comes after Ngirita complained that she was starving in the cells and having a hard time in there.
The man from Mwiyo village argues that he was offering himself for the sole reason that she appears innocent and “she is very beautiful to be behind bars.”

According to The Star Sammy works in Kibish, an interior location in Turkana county, where education is not considered a basic need and girls are married off for dowry and not taken to school. Sam has recognised that and has met some who he wants to take to school.
“These are Turkana girls in a village called Kibish tribe Kwatela. Kibish is 450km from Lodwar town. In this village, there is only one school, and the people here depend on relief food from the government. It’s also hard for parents to even afford school uniforms and books, making it hard for kids to attend school. Kibish is on the border of Ethiopia and southern Sudan,” he said.
“The fact that our camp is near Kijiji, as they call it, makes it easy for them to come for food and water, since we are supplied by the government, so I was able to meet some girls. Turkana people are nice and most of the times when we are attacked here, they always come for our rescue.”
His main agenda is to help the girls attain education.
“My main agenda is to encourage the community to know the benefit of taking kids to school. The kids ndio wanafanya job ya kupeleka ngombe malishoni, and girls go to fetch firewood. They value a girl child more because she brings wealth to the community after dowry of 50 cows, a 100 goats and 10 donkeys,” Ngare said.
“I appeal to leaders like the woman representative, area MP and governor to support their education. Through my initiative Askari ni Binadamu, together with my Pamson Foundation, I will ensure they get good life.”
He looks forward to leaving Kibish for a better place.
“My transfer to Kibish in Turkana county is a blessing to this people. God knew why I was transferred here. I will leave the place better than I found it,” Ngare said, adding that serving Kenyans is what he was called for.
Days after Nairobi’s Moi Girls school reopened,Maasai Girls’ School in Narok county has been closed indefinitely after rape claims against a teacher arose
Concerned parents had camped outside the school from as early as 6am after reports that a male teacher had been demanding sexual favours from the girls.According to The Star it was said that some students alerted their parents who dashed to the school.
The students protested by refusing to go to class and demanded action against the teacher who reportedly hid in the principal’s office.Principal Rose Oteko told the media that the administration asked police to investigate.
“We acknowledge receiving the information about one of our teachers demanding sex from the girls. We did not [dismiss it as a rumor],” she told reporters. “The school will remain closed until further notice.”The school has about 1,300 students.
She added, however, that they suspected a former teacher had incited the students.
Oteko’s sentiments were echoed by county Education Director Samuel ole Sankale who said they would speed up investigations.
The claims follow the case of Moi Girls’ School in Nairobi, where a student was reportedly defiled and two others assaulted leading to a panic by both students and parents who urged the Education ministry to help ensure of their children’s security.
The school was reopened on Sunday but some parents demanded details on the allegations and said they would not take their children back since they were not sure of what to expect if the issue was not properly handled.

“We are appealing to the passengers who were in that vehicle to give us information to help us with investigations,” Nairobi DCI boss Ireri Kamwende said yesterday. Ochieng was allegedly pushed out of the bus after a disagreement with the conductor over Sh10.
He had boarded the bus in Kangemi and was to alight at Safaricom after he paid Sh20.
“An argument later ensued between the two and the conductor, who was manning the door, pushed him out of the vehicle after he told him he was a bother,” a witness told the Star.
The bus then ran over Ochieng, killing him instantly. Yesterday, the management of City Shuttle declined to comment on the incident.
Ochieng worked for First Force Security Company as well as G4S. He lived at Gatina in Kawangware.
The vehicle is being held at Parklands police station as Ochieng’s body was taken to City Mortuary.

The Media Council of Kenya is threatening to close down the Star newspaper.
Today it issued a press release saying that it was contemplating “withdrawal of accreditation of its journalists and excommunication of the paper from media enterprises regulated under Media Council of Kenya.”
Only accredited media outlets and journalists are allowed to work in Kenya under the Media Act of December 2013. Withdrawal of accreditation would be equivalent to closure.
The press release signed by Grace Munjuri, Chairperson of the Ethics and Public Information Committee, complained about “persistent publishing of offensive stories and pictures by the Star.” It did not specify which stories or pictures had been deemed offensive.
The press release stated that the Media Council had “summoned the management of Radio Africa Group on Thursday, 22 January 2015 to explain the unprofessional conduct of its journalists before an appropriate action is taken.”
Today the Star Managing Director, William Pike, wrote to the Media Council requesting a formal communication to appear on January 22 as neither the Star nor the Radio Africa Group has received any such request from the Council.
He also requested the Media Council to specify which articles had caused offence as the Star was at risk of being found guilty without the chance to prove its innocence.
He said that the Star had always respected requests to appear before the Media Council Complaints Commission where several cases are presently under adjudication.
The Commission had found the Star at fault in only one case and the paper duly published an apology as directed.
