Ngirita’s unexpected confession after Court ordered her release

The Ngirita family, a pivotal suspect in the NYS multi-million loss scam have outrightly confessed through their lawyer that they don’t have Sh8 million to secure their release from custody a day after the High Court granted them bail.

Lawyer Cliff Ombeta on Wednesday complained in court that the decision to have his client’s accounts frozen has rendered them cashless, making it hard to access the money to facilitate their release.
Bank Accounts of Ann Wambere Wanjiku Ngirita; her brother, Jeremiah Gichina Ngirita; mother, Lucy Ngirita and sister Phyllis Ngirita were frozen last week by the High Court which is listening to the case.
High Court Justice Hedwig Ongw’undi said in her ruling on Tuesday that they would be released on condition that they pay a bond of Ksh.5million, cash bail of Ksh.1million and a Ksh.2million surety.

“How are they going to finance their case and they have no access to their accounts? The State is also snooping in our accounts. This is not fair and you need to give us directions to this too,”Defense lawyer Cliff Ombeta said on Wednesday.
“Are those accounts going to be exhibits in court and why are they taking our client’s cars?” Mr Ombeta further posed.

Set of conditions

Troubled Ngiritas have urged the court to vary the orders but indicated that they are willing to abide by all the other directives issued on Tuesday.
The Judge ordered that the applicants and the co-accused deposit their travel documents with the court.
They are also not supposed to leave the jurisdiction of the Nairobi Chief Magistrate without prior orders.
Further, the accused persons are also not allowed to go to their former offices unless accompanied by an officer.
The NYS suspects are also expected to refrain from making contact with any of the staff or witnesses lined up by the Prosecution.

Kanze Dena forced to make wardrobe change as she reports to State House [Photos]

The newly appointed State House Deputy Spokesperson Kanze Dena on Tuesday morning made her first press conference.

Most Kenyans have been accustomed to Kanze's gracious presence on TV where she has worked as a presenter for nearly a decade.

However, the Kanze who walked in to the State House press conference was not the TV girl  who presented news on Citizen Nipashe.
Her dress code appears to have changed as she donned in a dark suit and a blue shirt to complete the power look.

This was a big contrast to the bright dresses most news anchors  wear while presenting news, or even the casual clad that journalists wear to work whenever they are not appearing on the silver screen.
Despite the changes in wardrobe, Kanze has taken her charm and professionalism to State House.
She addressed the press conference in perfect Swahili and courteously took time to answer questions from journalists who covered the event.
Here are some of the photos from her news anchoring days:

Man dies mysteriously at a night club

A 26-year-old man was on Tuesday morning found dead at a night club in Amalemba estate in Kakamega town.

The man is said to have arrived at Rhumba Night Club on Sunday in company of two women and later booked a room at the same club.

Speaking to The Standard yesterday, the club's manager, Chrisantus Luvembe said they became suspicious the following day when the victim's room was still locked from inside by 10.30am.

He said all their clients normally vacate the rooms by 10am to pave way for cleaning.

“The cleaners knocked on the door but there was no response and they alerted the management. We informed the police and upon arrival, they broke the door in a bid to access entry into the room and found him dead,” said Mr Luvembe.

He said they found the man, who had vomited on himself, lying facing downwards. Some used syringes and blood stained bandages were also found in the room.

“We don’t know the man but the two ladies who were with him are regular visitors at the club,” said Luvembe.

Kakamega Central police boss, Joseph Chebii, said one of the women who was in the company of the deceased has been arrested while the other is still at large.

Mr Chebii said the suspect is under probe in a bid to get vital information that might have led to the death of the 26-year-old man.

 “In the room where the young man was found dead, we recovered a white container with some white substance which we have taken to the Government chemist for tests to ascertain its contents,” said the OCPD.

He said they don’t know the identity of the man and called on the public whose relative has gone missing to report to the police and to check if the victim might be their kin.

It is still not clear how the two women got out of the room leaving the man alone with the door locked from the inside. The body was moved to Kakamega County Teaching and Referral hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem.

Jahmby Koikai finally gets the attention of International Company

Jahmby Koikai finally gets the attention of International Company

If you know reggae MC Jahmby Koikai’s story, you know her days have been filled with terrible agony from the tender age of 13 years, when she started her menstrual cycle.

On Wednesday, however, Koikai better known as Faya Mama got a huge breakthrough after years of suffering.
Jamby, who is in Atlanta receiving treatment for endometriosis, has been in and out of the hospital for many months now.
Most of her days have been spent in a hospital bed but she has never once shied away from telling her story on her Instagram profile even on the toughest of days.

Her suffering birthed a desire to create awareness about endometriosis, which in the African culture is considered a taboo since girls are not allowed to talk about their monthly period.
Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus.
But the culture was not going stop this reggae enthusiast from starting an Instagram campaign calling on international big shots to support her in the cause.
In a post published on Tuesday, Jahmby urged her followers to tag, former US first Lady Mitchell Obama, media mogul Oprah Winfrey, popular show host Ellen Degeneres, actress Lupita Nyong’o, international media houses CNN and BBC.

"My country people please help me tag them so we can get their attention.when we do we will have made a milestone to have this conversation. I know it seems crazy but it never hurt to try\uD83D\uDE0A Please help me tag @oprah @ava @tylerperry@theellenshow @michelleobama@cnnafrica @bbcafrica @lupitanyongo@iamsteveharveytv @letterman@jimmykimmel @jadapinkettsmith@redtabletalk
 she posted.
And her follower did this faithfully with the post attracting over 1800 comments and 8714 likes.
This viral post also caught the attention of UK based media company BBC which conducted an interview with the DJ.
Jahmby was ecstatic about this first step that is now seeing her desire come to life.
"Great news so BBC WORLD SERVICE interviewed me on my journey with endometriosis. I'm doing this to raise as much awareness as possible," she posted.
The former radio presenter has undergone 12 surgeries in a period of one year.

No More Public Events In Schools, Education CS Amina Mohamed Orders

Education CS Amina Mohamed

Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed has banned public events from schools in a bid to protect the young minds to focus on educational matters. The order will be fully effective as from next week.

Ms Mohamed said the move will ensure that students prepare well for the National exams, whose timetable has been released. She also said that the move will reduce cheating incidences, whereby answers are sneaked into schools during such events, as it happened last year.

Speaking during the annual Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association (Kessha) conference in Mombasa, Ms Mohamed said that she will personally lead the teams monitoring the opening of examination containers across the country, particularly in areas mapped out by the examination council as requiring keen attention.

She also tasked school heads with the responsibility of ensuring that examinations are administered seamlessly.

“Principals must efficiently and effectively administer the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education Examination due in a few months. Continue preparing candidates adequately to improve the results of this year’s examinations,” Ms Mohamed said.

She urged the principals to guard against practices that might lead to exam irregularities, leading to the cancellation of results or deregistration of schools.

“You are the centre managers, waking up at the crack of dawn to pick up examination papers from the containers and returning scripts every evening. In order to maintain the utmost integrity of the national exams, you will be responsible for your centres. Execute the guidelines and seek reinforcement when needed,” she said.
