The owner of a building that collapsed in Ruaka last week was Monday arrested at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Jennifer Kamau aged 59 years was arrested at 2am as she tried to flee to Texas, USA.

DCI boss Amin Mohamed Ibrahim in a statement on Monday afternoon said DCI detectives based at JKIA pounced on Mrs. Kamau before she boarded a flight destined for Texas, in the United States of America.

The woman was however taken ill after the arrest and was rushed to a city hospital by DCI officers, where she is receiving treatment as she awaits court arraignment.

Two people lost their lives on Thursday last week after a six-storey building belonging to the woman collapsed on an adjacent building, while tenants were asleep at around 3am.

Cases of building collapsing in Kiambu County have been on the rise in the recent past.

On Monday morning, another building in Ruiru, Kiambu County collapsed hours after over 100 households were evacuated.

Authorities have since called on delevelopers to follow due process while putting up such structures.

A man stabbed his girlfriend four times before turning the killer knife on himself on Tuesday night in Juja, Kiambu County.

Witnesses told DCI detectives that Daniel Mwangi Wairimu, 39, had earlier visited his girlfriend Jane Njogu at her Mpesa shop within Juja shopping centre, where the two clashed over an unestablished matter.

The tiff went on until the lady who is believed to be in her early 30s closed up her business, then the two proceeded to the lady’s house at Palyjote Apartments in Juja.

Minutes past 10pm, piercing wails of a woman had however, hurled the neighbourhood into befuddlement. Mwangi drove three knife stabs into his girlfriend’s back, and a fourth one through her belly.

Thunderstruck neighbours who thronged the scene found her body in a pool of blood, and were too late to save her life.

After the deadly attack, Mwangi reportedly turned the knife on himself, driving it through his neck. In an attempt to save him, members of the public rushed him to hospital but he succumbed to profuse bleeding on the way.

The cause of the appalling deaths of Daniel Mwangi and Jane Njogu is currently being investigated by detectives based in Juja. Meanwhile, the bodies have been moved to Thika General Kago Funeral Home awaiting autopsy.

Detectives from Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Wednesday arrested the main suspect in the Westlands mistery evictions.

Zachary Baraza, a Bungoma County politician who vied for the Bungoma gubernatorial seat in the August 2022 general elections was presented before court as detectives sought to detain him for 14 days.

The politician who runs an auctioneering firm dubbed Siuma Auctioneers was linked to the violent eviction of a family in Westlands, Nairobi.

He is currently being detained at Muthaiga Police Station after the court granted the detectives their request pending further investigations into the case..

The complainant Niraj Shah said that Baraza led 25 people to their family home and destroyed the establishments.

The DCI said they have since established that buildings on the parcel of land were extensively vandalised and losses incurred amounted to Sh70 million.

The court heard that since Baraza was arrested, the household goods and other personal effects of the complainant are yet to be recovered.

“Preliminary investigations have revealed that those household goods and personal effects may have been sold on the instructions of Baraza,” Sergeant Eric Onyango said.

The police said Baraza should remain in custody as they are yet to record statements from witnesses and a comprehensive valuation report by a registered property valuer to determine the actual loss incurred by family.

According to Niraj Shah and his wife Avani Shah, they are the legal occupants since their lease to the land, which was allegedly bought by a private company in 2010,  expires in 2048.

Ksh.80 million worth property demolished

The couple has condemned the demolition of their Ksh.80 million worth property by a mob allegedly deployed by a private developer.

For over 40 years, the Shah’s have called the parcel of land their home but the Ksh.80 million property now looks nothing close to its former self.

Niraj said the investor in question demolished the house without following police protocol to do so.

“The right procedure is for them to go to the police, get assistance and come with the police. There is a procedure to follow if you have to evict someone but none of them were followed,” said Niraj.

Lariak Properties

Avani said Baraza showed her a document purporting that a private company named ‘Lariak Properties’ had bought the land from Metro pharmaceuticals in 2010.

The Shah’s however maintain that they are the legal occupants since their lease to the land is still valid, adding that they are in possession of a court order dated November 1, 2022, which directs that the plaintiff be restrained from trespassing or interfering with the couple’s possession of the land.

The couple claims that the eviction was executed without following due process and their efforts to seek help from authorities including the area police hit a deadlock.

A search at the registrar of companies shows that Lariak properties was registered in 2002 and has four directors namely Nathaniel Kipkemboi Barmasai, Samuel K. Chepkwony, John Kamaiyoa Rotich and Joel Kiplangat who sources say are connected to a high profile person.

John Mutiso Makau alias Katitu, the mastermind of a criminal gang targeting Mpesa shops in Nairobi was Monday arrested after a dramatic chase in Nairobi’s Kayole estate, pitting DCI detectives from the elite Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau.

The arrest came after a 48-hour operation.

Prior to his arrest, the DCI detectives had rounded up two of his accomplices Brian Wambua Mbindyo and Danson Musyoka Mulee.

According to DCI, Katitu was arrested after a 3-Kilometre chase.

Trouble for the thugs started when the headquarters’ based sleuths gathered sufficient actionable intelligence regarding their whereabouts, following the gruesome killing of a man who was shot at four times in broad daylight, seconds after walking out of a bank in Donholm, on October 31, 2022.

Donholm’s Family bank shooting

In the incident that attracted countrywide attention, the gun toting thugs had pumped four bullets into Nicodemus Mbuvi Munyasya, who was walking out of Donholm’s Family bank carrying a carrier bag, killing him on the spot.

The 38-year-old accounts clerk at extra paints manufacturing limited had deposited a cheque in the bank and was walking out carrying two disposable cups in the carrier bag.

Immediately he stepped out of the banking hall, two thugs on a motorbike accosted him and a scuffle ensued as the thugs snatched the bag from Munyasia, assuming that it contained a wad of cash.

When Munyasia resisted, he was shot at four times, three times on his legs and once in his chest by the fleeing thugs.

Forensic Crime Scene detectives recovered one spent cartridge and one bullet head at the scene.

Umoja Estate shooting

Three days before the incident, the suspects had accosted a woman as she left her Mpesa shop in Umoja estate, and shot her on the ankle before taking possession of her handbag which contained an unspecified amount of money.

Regina Chege, was approaching the gate to her house at around 9:30pm when the thugs on a motorbike struck.

This incident was similar to one reported at Embakasi police station on October 19, where one Dennis Musyoki and his wife who operates an Mpesa outlet were attacked at gun point as they walked home.

Ongata Rongai robbery

In yet another incident involving the armed miscreant gang, a retired managing director of Coast Development Authority, had been accosted at the gate to his compound in April, this year.

James Kahindi, was parking his vehicle at his home in Gataka, Ongata Rongai when, when two men opened the doors to his vehicle, a Toyota hilux.

Kahindi, a licensed firearm holder reached for his ceska pistol and fired two shots in the air, as the terrified thugs scampered for dear life.

During the incident, the thugs shot at Kahindi’s househelp who was rushed to Nairobi Women’s hospital in stable condition.

Preliminary findings from the Forensic Ballistic Unit based at the DCI National Forensic Laboratory, established that the firearm used in all the four incidents was similar.

The detectives also established that one of the main suspect’s accomplice Danson Musyoka, had a past criminal record and had been involved in various bank heists before going under.

Musyoka had recently sneaked back to the city where he teamed up with Katitu and Mbindyo to terrorize city residents.

In the ongoing investigations into the activities of the nefarious gang, last night detectives recovered 18 rounds of 9mm calibre from Katitu’s house in Fedha estate.

An operation to arrest the fourth accomplice only identified as Willie or Ibrah also a returnee from Somalia, is currently underway.

Students from different schools in Transmara, Narok County turned violent during a set book live performance that had been organized in one of the schools on Sunday.

The incident has left two students admitted at Kilgoris Sub-County hospital.

The students were part of a group of five schools that had converged at Poroko Secondary school for a live set books performance, before the show dissolved into acrimony followed by violent scenes.

Trouble began when the teacher on duty Fred Machokaa, spotted some boys from Kilgoris boys school in a compromising situation with one of his female students.

Upon urging them to disperse, the seemingly agitated boys descended on him with blows and kicks, prompting students from Poroko to come to the aid of their teacher.

As a result, students from the visiting school began throwing plastic chairs, pieces of rocks and a hail of other projectiles at their hosts, provoking chaos that left three students seriously injured and property of unknown value destroyed.

Two students who suffered head, neck and chest injuries were admitted at a private hospital in Nyangusi, in fair condition while a third was treated at Kilgoris sub-county hospital where he was treated and discharged in fair condition.

The three young men were aged between 18 and 21.

During the 5pm incident, Police officers based at Kilgoris police station had a difficult time containing the riotous students who destroyed the school bus belonging to Poroko, window panes in one of the dormitories and plastic chairs.

Investigations into the incident are still ongoing.

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) based in Juja, Kiambu County, are hunting down three suspects who killed a 23-year-old university student in cold blood on Monday night.

The killers are said to have escaped with the victim’s mobile phone and other valuables.

DCI boss George Kinoti in statement on Tuesday evening said Joel Juma, a fourth year Industrial Chemistry student at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), was stabbed two times on the chest by one of the thugs before they fled to darkness in the 2am incident.

According to Juma’s girlfriend who is a Law student at the Mt Kenya University, Parklands Campus, she had escorted her boyfriend to get some revision materials from his classmates a few blocks away, when the blood thirst gang accosted them.

The girlfriend had gone to visit his lover last evening at around 6pm and found him studying for his examinations. She prepared a meal that they shared together before they retired to bed.

However, Juma later woke up and embarked on his books but at 2am, he asked her to escort him to where a classmate lived a few blocks away, to get some reference material that he needed before morning.

It is while on their way when the thugs attacked them near hotel Lilies, demanding for money and mobile phones.

Two of them descended on Juma with blows and kicks before stabbing him twice on the left side of his chest, leaving him lying on the ground in a pool of blood.

The third assailant manhandled the lady who hadn’t carried any valuable and luckily, left her unscathed. Local guards who heard the commotion rushed to the scene and together with the heavily shaken girlfriend, helped Juma to a local dispensary where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Detectives have since established that pockets of a notorious gang, which escaped the ongoing operation to rid Kayole and Dandora of criminals, has found a safe haven in Gachororo, where they are regrouping with the aim of establishing a fiefdom.

Consequently, a major undercover operation to completely annihilate the gang has been launched in the area. Detectives from the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau (CRIB) and the Special Service Unit (SSU) have been dispatched conduct the operation.

Gidjoy Investment Operations Manager has failed to explain to court why the incident report of an attack on their property in Donholm says the report was made at Savanna base and not Buruburu police station as he alleged.

Mark Munge testified during examination in chief that after receiving a call from his head of security informing him that they were under attack, he called Buruburu police station and told the guard to do the same.

Giving his testimony before Principal Magistrate Gibert Shikwe, Munge testified that he called the OCS Buruburu and reported the matter.

“On 27th March 2018, he received a call from Dickson Nyairo, the security in charge saying that they were being attacked by Patrobas (one of the accused persons) and his group. I told him to call the police,” said Munge.

Munge testified that he recorded his statement on the same day at 5 PM.

The defense lawyer also pointed out that the crime and incident report also shows it was reported at 10.30 AM and not 8AM as the manager claimed.

The court heard that the manager has worked for the land selling company since 2012 and had been authorised by one of the directors, Gideon Muriuki, the CEO Cooperative Bank of Kenya, to testify on behalf of the company.

Munge said that he received the call at about 7.45 and visited the property at 9 am.


According to the witness, when he got there, he went inside the said land together with the guards and found that about 100 meters of the wall had been destroyed.


“We had a fence of wooden poles and wires around the 7 acre land. The damage was valued at about Sh 144,000,” Munge testified.

The court further heard that the land has been subdivided into 36 parcels.

In the case, 10 Sawesava group members are charged with malicious damage of a perimeter wall belonging to Gidjoy.


The accused perons are Benita Alando Nailanel, Peter Keya Owino, David Mutuku Makau, Kennedy Odhiambo Alex, Titus Ochieng Okoth, Boniface Oduor Anyiego, Calvince Ochieng Ooko, Patrobas Awino (group secretary), Nick Omondi Owango and Philemon Otieno are charged with malicious damage of the said fence.

Sowesava Self-help group and Gidjoy Investment have been in logger heads over the ownership of the said land.

Both parties claim to possess title deed as proof of ownership.

The High Court ordered the parties not to interfere with the said land until the hearing and determination of the case.

Munge also testified that the property had been invaded before, about three days before the March 27 attack where again the fence was damaged.

“About three days before, on 24th March 2018 we were attacked again by unknown people,” the witness added.

In addition, the court was told that the witness was named as the victim of the offence and not Gidjoy Investment, a company associated with Muriuki and wife Joyce.

Questioned on which plots the fence was damaged, the witness said he was not sure of the same.

During cross-examination by the sixth accused who did not have legal representation, the court heard that the Operations Manager had nothing to prove that the wall was erect the day before the alleged damage.

The court further heard that the Manager did not know who attacked them on 24th March yet is indicated in the charge sheet that it was the accused persons.

A Kenyan national who was arriving into the country through the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) from Bujumbura in Rwanda on Thursday, February 17, 2022 found himself in trouble after Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) customs officers bounced on him.

This is after the officers intercepted Ksh. 238 million in foreign currency from him.

Reports indicate that the suspect had arrived in the country with the money packed as a parcel containing 2 million US dollars.

The money was seized following a wrongful declaration on the intended destination.

Upon arrival, the passenger made a declaration of the currency indicating the origin as Banque de Credit de Bujumbura (BCB) to a recipient Brinks Global Services, Kenya.

After clearance by Customs Unit at the airport, the traveller later, presented the same money at the Swissport Cargo shed with different export documents for shipment to Global Services, UK.

The documents produced to support the export request were different from those produced on entry into the country.

After noting the inconsistencies in information provided by the passenger, KRA has invited Asset Recovery Agency (ARA) to assist in investigating the matter as a possible money-laundering attempt. The money has been held and the matter is under investigation.

The widows are pleading with the government to hurry the case for them to get justice and compensation.

During the clashes, most people were affected, some lost their lives while some were forced to relocate to look for refuge in some different parts of Bungoma county.

Kamau noted that they have 18 widows on board whom they are helping to get justice for some were left with children who are still dependent on their parents.

Lilian Ndunya who is one of the affected widows noted that she is facing challenges in raising her family after her husband was butchered during the clashes leaving her behind as the breadwinner and with that, she needs the government to intervene and have her and the other affected women compensated.

“We have been here the better part of the day with hope of finally getting justice that we all deserve after our husbands were killed mercilessly but the way things are being dragged, we are just banking our hope on God maybe one day we shall get justice,” she said

Ndunya also asked the government to take charge in ensuring that the country has a peaceful election this year so that post-election violence that was experienced in 2007 is not repeated

Embattled Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa has been allegedly re-arrested.

The arrest comes just a day after after the state failed to prefer charges against him.

Reports indicate that Mwendwa is currently being held at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu Road.

Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Wandia Nyamu on Thursday November 25, 2021 ordered that Nick Mwendwa’s Sh4 million cash bail be refunded to him after the Prosecution failed to press charges against the suspended FKF administrator.

On November 17, magistrate Nyamu gave the State seven days to file charges against Mwendwa, failure of which, he’d be released unconditionally.

On Thursday, the Prosecution, in a virtual session, said it had not prepared any charges against Mwendwa, prompting the magistrate to release Mwendwa unconditionally.

He was facing allegations of misappropriating at least Sh400 million belonging to FKF, claims he vehemently denied.

Mwendwa’s team at FKF was removed on November 11, and replaced by a caretaker committee, as investigations into the federation’s finances continued.

DCI detectives last week arrested Mwendwa and arraigned him before resident magistrate Wandia Nyamu and sought to detain him for 14 days to complete investigations.

The state cited fictitious withdrawals amounting to Sh29,502,302 and money transfers of Sh8.5 million wired to private bank accounts including that of Mwendwa.

The woman who featured in ex Nairobi governor Mike Sonko’s leaked tapes has come out to clarify that she was under duress when she made the sensational claims against some judges and advocates.

In a police case filed under OB14/21/11/21 at Karen Police Station, Merry Nkatha narrated in a press conference how she was coerced by the former governor to implicate several people for which in return, she was promised a whooping Sh20,000,000.

According to her statement, Nkatha narrated how last week on Saturday she was carjacked at gun point by three men who identified themselves as police officers adding that the three men pushed their way into her car and roughed her up before giving her a script to read.

Her police statement reads, “They then told me that Sonko will call me and for any question he asked me, I was to answer according the what was in the script.

“The documents were in form of a questionnaire and answers leading to implicate Advocate Cecil Miller and others. One man held a gun to my neck, while the other put a gun on my face.

“When Sonko called, I was so shaken that I could not answer the way they wanted so one man slapped me around and asked Sonko to call back after I was calm.

“He called after a while and I answered the way they wanted. After that, they left me and threatened to kill me if I reported to the police.”

At the press conference, Nkatha even showed journalists her communication with Sonko from her call history, with the incoming calls and their durations from her phone to prove that the kidnapping actually took place.

“I have never met Cecil Miller, Bishop Mureithi, I don’t know Judge Kantai. I have never met the likes of Chitembwe. Everything people heard on these leaked Sonko expose on the judiciary, I was coerced to do it. Right now, I am living in fear because anything can happen to me.”

She admitted that she has known Sonko for a while and they were friends.

“The reason he chose me for this project is because he knows me very well and he knows I am friend with the current governor Kananu, so I can be a credible witness in front of the Judicial Service Commission when they investigate the judges who ruled in favor of ousting Sonko.”
