Rashid Echesa taken to hospital

Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa was on Saturday rushed to Karen Hospital in critical condition.

Echesa who was being detained at Muthaiga Police Station since Thursday was taken to hospital due to a reported deterioration in his pneumonia and high cholesterol levels.

According to his lawyers Danstan Omari and Cliff Ombeta, Echesa’s condition could have led to further health complications had it not addressed in time.

“My client’s health deteriorated hence his admission to the hospital,” Omari told the media.

Echesa had been held at Muthaiga police cells since Thursday night, pending arraignment on Tuesday over allegations of extortion and staged abduction.

Police said they will guard him at the hospital ahead of his arraignment.

Echesa through his lawyers had asked the police to release him from custody to allow him seek medical attention.

His lawyers are also want him to be granted cash bail to “continue with his journey towards full recovery.”

Echesa who is also the chairperson of the Kenya Water Towers Agency, was arrested and initially taken to Muthaiga Police Station.

According to Danstan Omari, his continued detention would have made his health deteriorate adding that any form of justice related to his arrest cannot possibly take precedence over his health.

Echesa was arrested over claims of extorting money from Kakamega County Governor Fernandes Barasa.

Prior to his arrest, videos of him pleading for mercy after allegedly being abducted had gone viral.

In the videos, Echesa is heard asking his alleged abductors to tell governor Barasa to forgive him. He is also heard begging his alleged abductors not to kill him as his children would suffer.

However, a section of Kenyans have argued that the abduction seems to have been stage-managed as a part of ways to extort governor Fernandes Barasa.

Another video of Echesa conversing with an unknown man while handcuffed in a car boot also went viral.

This is not a first controversy to hit the former sports CS, who has previously been accused of photoshopping former Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala in what looks to have been the same extortion ring.

  • Lady Justice Nzioka found herself thrust into the limelight when she presided over the murder case that captured the nation’s attention for six long years.
  • Beyond her role in the courtroom, Justice Nzioka has been an advocate for the rights of the disadvantaged in society.

Lady Justice Grace Nzioka emerged as a prominent figure in the judicial landscape of Kenya, particularly gaining attention during the high-profile murder case involving businesswoman Monica Kimani, former Citizen TV news anchor Jacque Maribe, and Joseph Irungu alias Jowie.

Born into relative obscurity, Nzioka’s journey to becoming a respected jurist was marked by her dedication, intellect, and commitment to upholding the principles of justice.

Lady Justice Grace Nzioka’s Career

While specific details about Lady Justice Grace Nzioka’s early life and upbringing remain private, her legal career showcased a remarkable trajectory.

Graduating with top honors from a prestigious law school, Nzioka quickly gained recognition for her sharp legal acumen and dedication to the pursuit of justice.

Lady Justice Nzioka found herself thrust into the limelight when she presided over the murder case that captured the nation’s attention for six long years.

The trial involved Jacque Maribe and Joseph Irungu, with the former facing serious charges related to the tragic death of Monica Kimani.

Throughout the legal proceedings, Nzioka demonstrated a profound understanding of the law, earning widespread admiration for her poise, eloquence, and meticulous analysis of the evidence presented.

Her assurance that she had thoroughly examined all submissions and evidence, coupled with the declaration that she could read the judgment for six hours without a paper in her hand, showcased her unwavering commitment to ensuring a fair and just outcome.

Nzioka’s reading of the judgment became a focal point for observers, both in the courtroom and online.

Kenyans praised her for her articulate nature, composed demeanor, and the clarity with which she presented the complex legal aspects of the case. Social media buzzed with compliments, with many expressing their admiration for her captivating style.

Her involvement in high-profile cases, such as the Ksh1.5 billion case involving former Cabinet Secretary Raphael Tuju, showcased her dedication to justice.

In a display of integrity, she recused herself from the Tuju case, citing an inability to proceed and directing that the matter be mentioned before the presiding judge of the Commercial Division.

Beyond her role in the courtroom, Justice Nzioka has been an advocate for the rights of the disadvantaged in society.

In November 2023, she emphasized the need for a child protection unit at various stations to address the backlog of minor cases.

Acknowledging the significant workload, she highlighted that the Judiciary was actively working to reduce the backlog, demonstrating her commitment to ensuring justice for all, especially the most vulnerable in society.

In September 2022, Chief Justice Martha Koome made changes, relocating Justice Nzioka from Nairobi to the High Court in Naivasha.

Lady Justice Grace Nzioka’s Husband

Lady Justice Grace Nzioka is married to Mr. Jeremiah Kyeva.

Lady Justice Grace Nzioka’s husband is a brother to Prof Gideon Nyamasyo, a retired environmental department lecturer at the University of Nairobi.

In 2014, Prof Nyamasyo made headlines after he teamed up with his brother Mr. Kyeva who is Justice Grace Nzioka’s husband, Ms Agnes Jessie Mueni, a retired diplomat, and Ms Evelyn Mwikali, a teacher, in suing their 86-year-old mother, Ms Dorcas Katumbi Ernest over the estate of their late father.

Robbery Victim

In 2013, the judge experienced a harrowing incident when she became the victim of a robbery and kidnapping at her Karen home in Nairobi.

The unfortunate event unfolded as Justice Nzioka was driving into her compound. Five armed men confronted her, leading to her abduction.

The assailants forced their way into her house, where they stole various items, including documents, a laptop, a television set, and other electronics.

During the ordeal, Justice Nzioka and her husband were taken hostage, and the armed men drove them to the Dagoretti area, withdrawing over Ksh40,000 from their ATM accounts.

Ultimately, the judge and her husband were abandoned in the Kangemi area. The incident raised questions about the judge’s security, as it was revealed that her bodyguards were unarmed at the time.

Investigators sought to determine the motive behind the attack and whether it was connected to her work.

At that time, Justice Nzioka chaired a commission investigating the Tana River clashes, a significant and sensitive matter that had claimed numerous lives and displaced thousands of people.

Dennis Itumbi and Jacque Maribe

Kenyans witnessed an emotional and heartwarming scene in court as journalist Jacque Maribe was acquitted of murder charges in the Monica Kimani case.

The spotlight, however, shifted towards Dennis Itumbi, whose passionate reaction has since gone viral.

In a video capturing the moment, Itumbi can be seen tightly embracing Maribe just after Lady Justice Grace Nzioka announced the verdict of her acquittal.

The genuine display of joy and relief has resonated with many, as Itumbi took to his official X account to pen a heartfelt message for Maribe.

“Jacque Maribe is FREE! Maribe DID NOT kill Monica. Daaamn! I feel so vindicated!” Itumbi exclaimed in his post, shedding light on the six-year-long journey Maribe endured – a journey marked by shadows and unjust chains.

Itumbi’s message didn’t shy away from addressing what he referred to as a “rogue” DCI boss, George Kinoti, who allegedly used Maribe as a pawn in his pursuit of sensational headlines.

The post emphasized the truth’s brilliance, dispelling the darkness created by “Kinoti’s lies” and a scripted narrative aimed solely at media attention.

“Today, the truth has unveiled its brilliance, dispelling the darkness. The darkness of Kinoti lies and outright script aimed for Media headlines and nothing else,” Itumbi passionately wrote.

He likened Maribe to a phoenix, encouraging her to rise from the ashes, emphasizing that while time may have been lost, the essence of her being remains untouched.

Itumbi extended collective hands on behalf of friends, welcoming her back to the embrace of freedom.

In a show of unwavering support, Itumbi declared, “Let the record reflect that you have always been INNOCENT. The system failed you, and the rogue people who added you in this case just for headlines and creation of a circus should answer, and you must not let them walk out of the mess without questions.”

Acknowledging the pain Monica’s family endured, Itumbi expressed hopes for comfort to fill their hearts beyond the pursuit of justice.

To Jacqueline Maribe, he concluded with a powerful message, “There is a reason storms are named after women. Storms, like focused women, cannot be stopped. You are a lovely storm! Be blessed.”

Jowie and Jacque Maribe

Joshua Irungu, popularly known as Jowie, has been found guilty of the murder of Nairobi businesswoman Monica Kimani, a case that sent shockwaves through the community in 2018.

Lady Justice Grace Nzioka delivered the verdict, highlighting crucial details that led to Jowie’s conviction.

She emphasized that the prosecution successfully demonstrated that Jowie, a security personnel, committed the heinous crime.

Despite Jowie’s initial denial of any acquaintance with the deceased, the court, relying on the testimony of Kimani’s brother and cell phone records, concluded that Jowie did know Monica Kimani before her tragic death.

According to Kimani’s brother, they spent a night at Monica’s home on August 30, 2018.

The judge stated, “The 1st accused (Jowie Irungu) claimed he did not know the deceased at all. George Kimani, the deceased’s brother submitted that Jowie and Monica Kimani were in the same class in 2002 taking the same course in hotel and beverage management.”

The court invoked the Doctrine of Last Seen, agreeing with the prosecution’s evidence that Jowie was the last person seen with Monica Kimani before her demise. This legal doctrine assumes that the person last seen with the deceased is responsible for their death, placing the onus on the accused to provide an explanation.

Justice Nzioka further concurred with the prosecution’s assertion that Jowie used a firearm to intimidate Monica Kimani before her tragic death. Forensic evidence played a crucial role, establishing that the blood stains on Jowie’s shorts belonged to the businesswoman.

The court’s reliance on testimonies, cell phone records, and forensic evidence underscores the gravity of the situation.

The second accused, journalist Jacque Maribe has been acquitted and found not guilty of the murder of Monicah Kimani.

The court dropped the offense of misleading investigators on technicality that had been leveled against Maribe.

Lady Justice Nzioka cancelled Jowie’s bond and ordered that he remains in custody until March 8, when he will be sentenced.

Controversial Mavoko land turned into a quarry

Do you remember when the government hurriedly demolished homes and evicted hundreds of locals in Athi River, Mavoko Sub-County in Machakos County?

Well, the expansive land owned by East Africa Portland Cement Company, which witnessed massive evictions in October 2023, has now been turned into a cash cow by unknown cartels.

The land is now at the center of concern due to heavy murram excavation and dumping.

What started as a seemingly vacant piece of land has transformed into a lucrative business venture, leaving over 3,000 families homeless and raising questions about the involvement of cement company officials and unidentified tycoons.

The Murram Excavation Business

According to a report by K24 tv, a well-orchestrated business emerged on the vacant Mavoko land about two weeks ago.

Heavy murram excavation and cotton soil dumping have become a profitable venture, with a truck of murram fetching Ksh3,000.

The operation is closely guarded, with individuals responsible for counting lorries and collecting cash. Black cotton soil from neighboring Kitengela and Athiriver construction sites is also dumped at night for Ksh500 per lorry.

Concerns arise as the land, initially subject to a court ruling in favor of the cement manufacturer, undergoes rapid excavation, potentially diminishing its value for future development.

Local Outrage

The displaced residents express their frustration over the situation, highlighting the irony of demolishing homes purportedly for affordable housing initiatives while creating a business opportunity for a select few.

Suspicion grows among the locals, pointing fingers at rogue Portland Cement officials collaborating with unidentified tycoons and security agencies in this multimillion business.

Market Dynamics

The murram finds its primary destination in a project owned by a foreigner in Athiriver, but the market is open to any interested buyer.

Locals speculate a well-surveyed and pre-planned entry into the murram business, raising eyebrows at the involvement of powerful entities.

Allegations of Collusion

As concerns deepen, locals allege the involvement of uniformed police officers within the quarries.

However, Athiriver sub-county police commander Jos Mudavadi denies any attachment of officers to his station, stating that police presence is only deployed in response to reported incidents.

The mysterious collaboration between Portland Cement officials, unidentified tycoons, and alleged police involvement adds another layer to the controversy.

As the controversy unfolds, the residents of Athiriver are left grappling with the aftermath of evictions and the questionable transformation of their once-home into a thriving excavation business.

The community demands transparency, accountability, and justice in the face of what seems to be a complex and dubious collaboration between powerful entities.

20-year-old woman whose dismembered body was discovered at a residential apartment in Nairobi’s Roysambu area

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives have unmasked the area where the main suspect in the gruesome murder of JKUAT student Rita Waeni Muendo used to stay.

According to a detective who spoke in confidence to one of the leading local dailies, the main suspect was traced to Ruaka in the days leading to the incident.

The detective noted that the killer had also spent half of the day in Ruaka on the same day he met his victim, a clear indication that it was likely his area of residence.

He would then go to Roysambu where he booked an Airbnb apartment along TRM Drive.

Rita Waeni Muendo’s family said the 20-year-old left her aunt’s residence in Syokimau to meet with a friend.

Her father would later receive a message delivered from her phone number on Sunday at about 5:00am, demanding a ransom of Ksh. 500,000 within 24 hours to secure her release.

The family then reported the matter to the police and DCI for investigations.

The body parts of the student, who was due to join her fourth year of university, were discovered inside a trash bag in an Airbnb apartment in TRM Drive, Roysambu, by the caretaker on Sunday.

Her head was however missing.

Detectives are still searching for Ms Muendo’s head and her personal belongings including her clothes and mobile phone.

On Tuesday, police arrested a male foreign national at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on suspicion of being involved in the murder.

The suspect was travelling using a Mozambican passport and was intercepted before boarding a plane after he reportedly raised suspicion.

He was interrogated at the airport before being transferred to the Kasarani Police Station pending identification.

The bullfighter goes ahead to say that he had deliberately chosen Oparanya for the communication because he was Kakamega’s first governor.
