Cholera Has So Far Killed 14, Affected 1,216 In 12 Counties

Fourteen people have so far died and another 1,216 affected by Cholera in 12 counties since January.

The Association of Public Health Officers of Kenya (APHOK) says Nairobi and Garissa are the worst affected with active cases of Cholera of cases currently.

Chairman of the association Samwel Muthinji says some of the counties are still in danger of experiencing the spread of Cholera

The countries that have reported cases of Cholera include Vihiga, Kericho, Mombasa, Kiambu, Tana River, Nakuru,  Turkana, Nakuru, Narok and Wajir, Muranga, Garissa and Nairobi.

Muthinji says the drought in parts of the country has also caused the spread of other diseases like the Denge Fever which has been reported in Mombassa and Wajir with 1,305 cases were reported with one death.

Kalazar disease has also been reported in Wajir and Marsabit where 3,189 cases were reported with 7 deaths.  He spoke in Eldoret at a meeting of the association where he was with Secretary General of the public health officers Muhammed Duba and National Treasurer an Okwara.

Okwara said Nairobi County should admit that it cannot handle the outbreak on its own and thus requires a multi-agency approach to handle the spread of Cholera. The officers want all affected hotels and food joints shut down but not selectively because of politics.

“As the association of public health officers we are now mobilizing our members to help deal particularly with Cholera cases in Nairobi and prevent possible outbreaks in other counties,” said Okwara

The association has put on alert all the more than 5,000 public health officers to work with other government agencies in helping to stop the spread of Cholera and other diseases.

UN Staff Arrested For Allegedly Killing Wife A Day To Her Burial

A staff with the United Nations (UN) has been arrested by police in Gilgil in connection with the death of his wife one week ago.

The suspect was arrested a day to the burial of the wife after post-mortem reports indicated that the deceased was murdered and did not drown in a bath tub as alleged.

Trouble started last week when the couple checked in one of the posh hotels around Lake Elementaita to celebrate the wife’s birthday.

During the weekend retreat, the wife was found dead in the tub and police called in before the body was transferred to Lee Funeral home.

According to Gilgil OCPD Serah Koki, the husband claimed that he had left the house for the main hotel but on coming back their room was locked from the inside.

“The hotel management used the spare key to access the room only to find the woman lying dead in the bath tub and police were called in,” she said.

Koki said that a postmortem conducted on the body established that the man was lying as they were indications that she had been strangled to death.

“We have arrested the man following the postmortem report and he will be arraigned in court facing murder charges,” she said.

MWIZI ALISHWA NYASI: Drama In Molo Village As Cattle Thief Eats Grass!

Residents of Molo village woke up to a bizarre incident after a man suspected to be behind rampant cases of stock theft in the area was found eating grass at the homestead from which he had reportedly stolen a cow.

The incident attracted the attention of the locals who flocked the home to have a glimpse of the suspect who had turned into herbivore.

David Omayo, the owner of the stolen cow who works in a nearby school, said he was informed by his wife that one of his cows was missing and embarked on a searching mission.

Their efforts to search for it were futile and he was advised by a friend to consult a witch doctor from Tanzania.

“I called the witch doctor and he asked for Sh10,000 to fuel his car. I sent the amount and he arrived the next day,” said Omayo.

The witch doctor directed Omayo to gather his friends and neighbours as it had been revealed to him that the cow was stolen by someone close to him.

The residents were requested to wash their hands in a basin of water placed at the point the cow had been locked in and the suspect would be revealed shortly.

“After washing our hands the witch doctor and the rest of us left the home.

Two hours later one of my friends called me claiming he was feeling sickly. We later found him eating grass at the same homestead,” said Michael Kathenge, a neighbor.

On seeing that the suspect was one of the neighbors and a close friend, Mr Kathenge called on the witch doctor to reverse the spell and save the man’s life.

The witch doctor then demanded that Sh50,000 be sent to him via Mpesa but they could not raise the amount.

Police officers who were called in rushed him to Molo Level Four Hospital for medical attention but the medics declined to admit him saying it was not a medical condition.

According to witnesses the man who is also a member of the Nyumba Kumi initiative has been attending security meetings which made it hard for them to track him down.

The suspects returned to normalcy after half the amount demanded was sent to the witch doctor.
