Kulingana na walioshuhudia ajali hio iliyohusisha treila tatu, treila moja ilikua ikitoka Tororo kuelekea Eldoret na ilijaribu kukwepa treila nyingine ambayo ilikua imeegeshwa barabarani, baada ya kukumbwa na hitilafu, kabla ya kugongana ana kwa ana na treila nyingine iliyokua ikitoka Eldoret kuelekea Malaba ikiwa imebeba bidhaa za kutengeza simiti.
Dereva wa treila hiyo aliyejulikana Kama Katana alifariki papo hapo.
Mwili wake umepelekwa katika hifadhi maiti ya hospitali ya rufaa ya Bungoma.
Ajali hio imetokea siku chache tu baada ya watu nane kuaga dunia katika ajali nyingine katika eneo la Matulo kwenye barabara hio.
Baada ya jombi kuiaga dunia huko maeneo ya Narok, jamaa na marafiki walifanya kikao kuchanga pesa ya kumpa heshima zake.
Kama ilivyo desturi na mila katika familia nyingi nchini. Hadhi ya mwendazake ilikuwa ya juu sana na kwa hivyo walitakiwa kuchanga kiasi kizuri cha hela ili kuweza kumzika kiheshima. Inadaiwa kuwa alikuwa mwenyekiti wa chama cha wazee pale kijijini.
Watu walikusanyika na kuchanga pesa za kufadhili mazishi huku masharti yakiwa kununua jeneza ya hadhi ya mkubwa huyu. Inatokea kuwa jamaa aliyetumwa kununua jeneza aligawa kiasi cha pesa kwa mahitaji yake na kupelekea kununua jeneza ambayo wenzake waliirejelea kama sanduku tu.
As rapper Octopizzo denies involvement in the killing of a Strathmore student last week, his sister has baffled relatives with contradictory statements.
Kenneth Abom, a 19-year-old ICT student, died on Saturday after an alleged altercation with the rapper in Nairobi’s Woodley estate on Thursday. The rapper claims the boy broke into his house.
Kenneth’s big brother Antony told Word Is yesterday: “Octopizzo’s sister is giving two contradicting stories. She is saying she let Kenneth in and in another statement, she says he knocked the door and pushed her in.”
An hour later, the brother said, Kenneth came back running and bleeding from the head.
Neighbours claim they heard Octopizzo threaten the student’s life, while wielding a panga, he said.
“That is when he ran for his life and locked himself in the bathroom, and an hour later jumped off the 4th floor and sustained injuries,” Antony said.
“By the time he came back into the house, he was disoriented and even talking to himself. Octopizzo was again seen by neighbours carrying a panga and threatened to use it on Kenneth.”
The family of Kenneth is trying to find out if the two knew each other because they can no longer depend on Octopizzo’s sister.
Kenneth was taken to Kenyatta National Hospital and seemed to be recovering but succumbed on Saturday noon.
On reaching out to Octopizzo, the brother said he seems not to be cooperating with them.
“We can only get the right information from Kenneth, but unfortunately, he is dead. And from Octopizzo, but he is turning out to be arrogant and rude,” Antony said.
“On Saturday I went to the hospital and requested to get the explanation from Octopizzo but he did not want to do it freely. We have even reached out to his management but he is arrogant, saying that Ken stormed into his house.”
The family was waiting for the autopsy report yesterday to decide if they will institute a lawsuit against Octopizzo.
Messages and numerous phone calls to Octopizzo went unanswered. However, he was quoted by a local daily denying he beat the boy.
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].
Fear engulfed Maungu village after a body of secondary school teacher who went missing on Wednesday last week was found hanging on a tree, few meters from Maungu town along Mombasa/Nairobi highway.
Kepha Otuoma, 35 a senior teacher at Mwaghogho Secondary School in Voi,Taita Taveta County was reported missing on Wednesday after he left his house in Railways estate for driving classes in a nearby driving school.
Voi OCPD Joshua Chesire confirmed the incidence saying that the deceased did not leave any suicide note.
He said his body did not have visible injuries.
“We have started investigations to establish whether he committed suicide or he was murdered. We urge the public to stay calm as we carry on the process.” the police boss said.
Chesire said the body was found dangling in a tree following a manhunt by police, education officials and family members after his phone’s last signal was traced in the area.
His body was taken to Moi County Referral Hospital mortuary pending postmortem investigation.
Anne; the deceased wife said her husband had left home on Wednesday, promising to be back shortly and he never showed up since then.
“He was in good health when he left the house. He told me that he shall come back early but he never came. I called him but he did not pick his phone until it went off.” She said.
She urged police to investigate the death.
The suspicious death has drawn reaction from education stakeholders calling for thorough investigation. County Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) secretary general Shedrack Mutungi noted that the humbled-teacher might have been murdered and his body hanged at the scene.
“It is until the police complete their investigation that we can rule out such possibilities. It is not clear how he got to this place from Voi and he might have been kidnapped by unknown assailants.” Mutungi said.
He described him as a hardworking teacher, further urging anybody with information concerning the incidence to share with police.
County Teachers Service Commission director Ms Joyce Kikuvi said the teacher was on two weeks sick leaving owing to his health problems.
“He had recently been transferred from Funju Secondary School in Wundanyi to his new station due to health complications. He later proceeded on sick leave.” She said.
