“I was told that the man died at 7:30pm in an area where I never even set my foot in so there’s no way that story is related with me. What we did we went to give out car wash machines not money and I was out of the place by 5:30pm so you see these are mere propaganda because how can you grab the said money at 5:30PM then get killed two hours later?. ” Said Jaguar, adding that if the alleged group would have been fighting over car wash ownership, then he would have been involved.

Listen to the exclusive phone interview with Jaguar below.

Jaguar will face incumbent Maina Kamanda. The race will also see him compete with activist Boniface Mwangi who stepped down from PAWA 254 leadership in January and businessman Steve Mbogo who is also eyeing the seat on an ODM ticket.

NAIVASHA: 35-Year-Old Man Commits Suicide Days After Killing His Wife

Residents of a Naivasha village woke up to a rude shock after a man who was on the run for killing his wife committed suicide.

The 35-year-old man had on Friday killed his wife at Kamae village in Kinangop and dumped her body in the forest before fleeing the area.

HORRIFIC Photos of Naivasha Tragedy Put A Damper On Jamhuri Day Celebrations

Even as we are supposed to be celebrating this Jamhuri day, many across the country are mourning the deaths of at least 40 people in the now dubbed, Naivasha Tragedy.

Victims of an explosion along Nakuru-Naivasha highway were burnt beyond recognition with 40 confirmed dead, while others are still undergoing treatment.

Images of the scene have emerged and eyewitnesses speak of ‘bodyless’ heads and puddles of blood, along with burning cars at the scene.

Photos show the intensity of the blaze which engulfed 14 cars including vehicles transport GSU members who are also part of President Uhuru’s elite VIP protection team.

In a statement on Sunday, The Motorists Association of Kenya said the bump was unnecessary and ”It was just a matter of time, perhaps, before they reaped what they intended by erecting the bump.”

“Many questions have been asked and blame apportioned. However, It was not an accident because God never erected the sign-less and crudely constructed unmarked killer bump in the middle of a busy international highway,” MAK chairman Peter Murima said.

Transport Permanent Secretary Irungu Nyakera said the accident may have been as a result of the driver not having knowledge of the road.

“We are looking at how the vehicle was in transit without the specifications to carry such flammable materials,” he said.
