14-year-old girl battered to death by 16-year-old boy who then had s3x with her corpse

A 14-year-old girl who was allegedly battered to death by a 16-year-old boy with a hammer was ‘told not to meet him’ by a friend’s aunt because ‘you don’t know what weirdos are out there’, a court heard.

Viktorija Sokolova’s half-naked body was found propped up on a bench at a pavilion known in West Park, Wolverhampton, in April.

The 14-year-old had been subjected to a ‘ferocious’ hammer attack during which she was struck at least 21 times and had her skull smashed in and spine ‘snapped in two’.

A 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has gone on trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court accused of murdering the schoolgirl.

He is also charged with raping the Lithuanian youngster and having sex with her dead body.

Today the court heard a police interview with a 13-year-old friend of Viktorija, who told officers how the teenager had planned to move to London the day after the attack.

The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also claimed Viktorija had arranged a midnight rendezvous with defendant, who called himself ‘Lazy Cho’.

She said: ‘The person [Lazy Cho] asked to meet Viktorija at midnight – she said yes but you can see from the texts he was asking to meet her for ages.

‘She told us that she was going to London the next day to get away from Wolverhampton.

‘She did not give a reason she just said I’m going to London for a few months.

‘She said that boy had asked to meet her in West Park at midnight, we just looked at each other – that was really late but I thought nothing of it.

‘She just said he was a mate and did not tell us anything.’

The girl added: ‘Viktorija was with my friend, she was meant to go at 8pm but stayed to 10pm.

‘Her [friend’s] aunt told her to not walk through the park because it is “unsafe and you don’t know what weirdos are out there”.

‘She did not want people to know who she was meeting.

‘We were going to go out on Friday, then they found a body and we knew she went though West Park, she was not answering her messages and calls.

‘I saw it was a teenage girl. I had a feeling it was her

‘I had a text from my friend, she had called me loads – I spoke to her and she said that body was Viktorija’s.

‘My friend had access to Viktorija’s Facebook as it was on her phone – and it showed she was talking to this boy [Lazy Cho].

‘His name was not a proper name.

A young man from Kindawa village in Gichungo location, Ol kalou, was on Wednesday morning found murdered and his naked body dumped in a ditch along Ol kalou-Kipipiri road.

Gichungo Chief, Benson Mathenge, said the body of Robert Njuguna, who is in his early 30s, was discovered by residents who notified the authorities. He had injuries in the head.

He said the killers must have waylaid Njuguna or followed him as he walked home from Jua Kali estate, Ol kalou town, where he had been spotted on Wednesday evening in a group of other young men eating Muguka and smoking bhang.

He said they have notified police of deteriorating security in the area so they enhance surveillance as Njuguna is not the first resident to be killed while walking home. This month he said, a watchman who worked at Jua Kali was killed along the same road, and residents have also been attacked.

“Prostitution is a crime and an offence against humanity,”Pope Francis says

Pope Francis has asked forgiveness for all Christians who buy sex from women, saying men who frequent prostitutes are criminals with a ‘sick mentality’ who think that women exist to be exploited.

‘This isn’t making love. This is torturing a woman. Let’s not confuse the terms,’ Francis insisted.

The pope made the comments during an intimate, four-hour-long listening session with 300 young people who were invited by the Vatican to Rome.

The purpose of the session was to help church leaders learn about young people’s attitudes towards the Catholic Church.

Blessing Okoedion, who was forced into prostitution but escaped, asked Francis how the church could allow Catholics to be clients for the many Nigerian women in Italy who – like her – were victims of human trafficking.

‘I ask myself, and I ask you: Is the male chauvinistic church able to truthfully ask itself about this high demand by clients?’ she asked.

Francis, who has made the fight against human trafficking and modern-day sex slaves a priority of his pontificate, urged young people to take up the fight against trafficking and forced prostitution.

‘This is one of the battles that I ask you young people to do, for the dignity of women,’ he said.

The pontiff said forced prostitution was born of a ‘sick mentality’ that no form of feminism has managed to rid from society, one that thinks that ‘women are to be exploited.’

Speaking directly to Okoedion, he concluded: ‘I want to take advantage of this moment, because you talked about baptized and Christians, to ask your forgiveness, from society and all the Catholics who do this criminal act.’

Monday’s meeting was preparation for a big synod of bishops in October on helping young people find their vocations in life.

‘Kila mtu chini na ukiinuka nakumaliza…’ City Man narrates his ordeal in the hands of matatu jackers

Nairobi is no longer the safe haven we thought it was.

A city man, Kelvin Cayman narrates how he thought his ride home from work was going to be smooth until thugs carjacked the Citi Hoppa he was riding in.

If you thought you are safe in your Estate/home bound bus/matatu after crossing the dangerous and “mugger-ful” Nairobi streets. This time, you are wrong! You are making the worst assumption.

So on Tuesday 13th February my friend Laz Korir asked to meet me in town so we can discuss how we shall collaborate in developing a certain app. We sat at Highland Platinumz from 7pm up to some minutes to 9pm as we talked about stuffs.

I live in Pipeline area so I had several route options. However my dislike for loud music in the Embassava Sacco busses and the Kanambos left me with Citi Hoppa option. Well frankly I have always taken this option anytime with headache or without, I just like how they travel slowly and smoothly – usually gives me time to meditate and think about things…lool.

Radio presenter charged with defiling a Form One student

This evening looks like people are boarding slow, I was among the first to board, at the door I was frisked and then I sat on the rear wheels row, on the driver’s side. The fleet number was 404. So we leave town prolly some minutes after 9pm or 9.30…, I am not sure the exact time. The tout started his business and by the time we were speeding past Nyayo Stadium I was handing in my ‘fote’, Ksh 40/- bus fare. At that time I was between dozing off and eavesdropping to a couple who were seated next to me talking about their neighbor who has been doing too loud music.

On passing the Southern By-pass interchange, I heard someone seated somewhere in front of me shout “Shukisha”. That statement always triggers your mind to brace because the auto is braking. And there we briefly stopped at Airtel stage. I was not paying any attention to what was happening. I know shukisha means someone is being dropped.

To my surprise there was a scuffle at the door to the driver’s section, then someone shouted “Kila mtu chini…”, another one repeated “Kila mtu chini na ukiinuka nakumaliza…”. Another guy dashed from the back seats shouting “kila lala mtu chini…” as he slapped people to the front of the bus then back.

In the process…my mind was like. “Today’s pastor has used a weird way to seek attention.” These buses usually have pastors preaching. But it was a glimpse of a guy handling something like a pistol that made me fit in a space I can’t fit normally. At the same time we were being ordered to lie down. Our driver was ‘overthrown’ and the reality was, we were in the hands of a 5-persons carjacking gang and one of them was now our driver. All the ‘overthrowing’ happened in the brief in the brief stop where instead of someone alighting, someone aboard with their weapons of ‘work’ – read pistol(s) and some knives.

So the illegitimate – son of a bitch driver speeds past Sameer Business park and instead of following Mombasa road, he diverts into Enterprise road.

Inside the bus over 40 passengers are being terrorized while lying on the floor. “Leta simu na pesa…”x10,000 were the only statements you could hear. Handbags, pockets, any carriers emptied. On my hot completely uncomfortable corner I was doing my “Hail Mary…”s. I am a Catholic. I removed my phone from my pocket and dropped it on the floor.
So then comes my turn to give money and my phone, this thug gets to me…he ordered me to stand… The pistol in his hand, he first puts it back in the holster. I lifted my arms up and kinda begged for mercy “Akh bro sina phone ni tu hii phone na hizi coins na hizi sticky notes na wallet….” The look I gave him he instantly believed me and picked my wallet (which had only my National ID card, 2 Equity bank ATM cards, alooooooot of business cards), I think the coins I handed him was only 15bob, literally after paying the bus fare I was left with 30 shs and I later found I still had 15 bob in my pocket ( stop laughing..) and my sticky notes which had important points on the Apps discussion I had with Laz. The way he picked the sticky notes I thing he perceived it was some cash notes. He puts my stuffs call it contribution in a handbag he picked from the lady seated next to me. I was in a white shirt and a blueish trouser so he parted with “Lala chini student…”

When I got down I picked my phone and….guess where I did hide it. Yes, you are right. Thanks to my big butt.

‘I have never seen a body brought from the morgue for burial then returned,’ shocked villagers watch as burial is disrupted

Then the thug came again after his commander shouted to him “Baba hapo hamfanyi kazi vizuri hapo nyuma…”. This time he was determined to get something out of me, so instead of ordering me to hand in anything he decided to check himself.

The idiot started with my armpit, down into my pockets and then shamelessly my balls. Imagine lifted up my balls. Fuck! Now that was completely uncomfortable as he repeated. And then he miraculously ignored my butt! That’s where the phone was feeling the heat and “drinking” all the sweat. He moved to another person, I couldn’t believe it.

My joy was short-lived when I realized my phone’s “Ringer and Message Volume” was full blast.

My heart was now popping out as I sat on my phone I hoped when it rings the sound will be kinda “absorbed by the ass”. Prayers continued.

Now we are at Jogoo road headed towards Donholm when we were ordered to “Sit kama abiria…”. At this time they are done with the major part of their business and they are now rerunning searching algorithms to some passengers. The thug in-charge of the rear section sat on our seat. Now my heartbeats literally tripled. “Even if I my ass absorb the volume which hmm..impossible, it can’t absorb the vibration.” That was killing me faster than the bullets I may receive once this devil learns I have my phone. At that time of the evening there’s usually a likelihood I receive a call from a friend or my family.

It’s at this point I thought about my death, how the burial would be. My Eulogy would be so short…. Birth, Education, Death at 25. I thought about the several apps I am doing, who will complete them? I thought about my dreams, my friends, my family. How maybe one the leaders will condemn the act but technically will not be even aware I was in the bus. I remembered I don’t have a girlfriend, technically no one would feel the loss from that end. “I am just as useless as dead…” I thought. And in a way I changed my view of life from that end. First things first I need a girlfriend, someone we shall do these apps together…loool..

(Back from girlfriend commercial) To other passengers, a few got some beating because as the thugs claimed they looked like AP officers, they were judging from the style of the hair cut. The balder you look, the more likely you are a security officer.

From Jogoo rd we join Outering road and now we are heading towards Allsops still the thug sitting on our seat… cut that part because that’s where the epicenter of the impact of my trauma and I don’t want to talk about it.

God is great no one has called or texted when the thieves ordered us to lean forward as they jumped out the bus in a dark alley somewhere in Kariobangi!!! They had bountifully made away with over 30 phones, over a 100k and other valuables.

Meet Steve Otombo, the university student who was stabbed over a DJ competition

They gave back the bus to our driver and ordered him to speed off and not look back.

Fast forward to Buruburu Police Station. The time is now 11.30pm. OOOH MY GOD!! Sincerely speaking. The lowest service and professionalism I have ever seen. We start with statement recording at the OB, they officer guy in charge was recording on a foolscap. I have never been to a police station again but I know OB stands for Occurrence Book. Which is a book. I asked him why foolscap and he said he will transfer.

Then the listening part, so an officer asks you what happened, then in the middle of you explaining he switches to a phone, doesn’t show any attention and he goes to the next person. It was the ‘coldest’ service.

Having spent an hour and a half it’s now 1am. We’re through with the statements. Things feels thickest and everyone wants to go home when another officer appears and says. “Ngonjeni OCS anakuja asikie hii case yenu…”…Aaaarrrgh!
We sat on the cold floor in-front of the reception recounting what just happened. Another very neatly dressed officer appear and listens to one of the group then this was his reply.
“Mimi sipigii mtu debe lakini ukitaka vizuri, panda ile gari iko na kichwa. Hizi za Route 23, lakini Citi Hoppa na Double M achana nayo… Hawa wezi wanajuanga zile gari zinabeba watu wako na pesa.(meaning the one the driver section is separate with the passenger section)”
That was really disturbing! Really hopeless and awful.

When the OCS arrived a few victims were selected and they went with him into the office to recount the same story. Then he decided to shock us more by saying… “Wale wako na means wanaeza enda nyumbani, wale watabaki nitajua.”
It’s fucking 2 AM, you’ve been robbed, they have grounded the bus we had paid for, locked up our driver and the tout, the officer is really this damn kind and you are like 50 kilometers from where you stay…

With my little knowledge I asked one the passengers who had identified himself as a pastor and had been robbed 16000 shs we join and lobby to get a transport through their lorry that was parked outside the station with headlights on. Thanks to my little courage and English the OCS submitted and we got a ride home. In a way I was treated a superman.

Our case is OB Number 85/13/2/18.

So dear people when you get to your apartment/block or whatever you call home, thank God and see it as a miracle.
If possible tumia zile gari ziko na kichwa. Right now the noisy and overated Kanambo is bae.

And it’s not safe at all. The President, Gov Sonko and all security organs in the city should know it’s not safe. AT ALL!!”
