A pedestrian was shot and injured as police confronted a group of muggers along Landhies Road, Nairobi.
The gang of five had been waylaying and robbing pedestrians on the road when a police officer who was also headed for work confronted them. In the process, he shot aiming at them but missed hitting a pedestrian in the hand, police said.
The muggers managed to escape on foot and police said at least four victims had lost their valuables. The injured victim was rushed to the hospital where he was attended to and discharged, police said as they declared a hunt on the muggers was ongoing. Cases of mugging have been on the increase in the city in the past weeks leaving many injured and others with no valuables. And to address the menace, police are planning a major operation against hawkers, street children and bodaboda operators in Nairobi. So far 35 suspected muggers have been arrested since Sunday. Another operation is planned and it is targeting the traders, street families and bodaboda operators. A crisis looms because most of the bodaboda operators argue they have paid to be allowed to operate within the city.
The Director of Operations at the City Inspectorate Department, Peter Mbaya said bodaboda operators will not be allowed in the Central Business District. He said only motorcycles having carrier boxes or those offering courier services and have branded boxes will be allowed into the CBD. He said the operators will be dropping their passengers in areas outside the CBD such as City Stadium and Ngara. But the operators say they have paid for licenses to allow them to come to the CBD. The County Government has since circulated a notice indicating the ban on the operators with immediate effect. “Any operator and passenger found contravening this law will be arrested for an offence punishable by hefty fines and long jail terms provided for in the Traffic Act 2014. Motorcycles ferrying goods are exempted,” said a notice issued Tuesday. Organised criminal gangs operating in the CBD have been accused of stealing from Nairobi residents and escaping on motorbikes.
Women are now scrambling for any available eight-inch remnant of Mr Big which resembles a real human kuni.
Three websites that have been selling the toy have indicated that they have run out of stock.
Diana Wanjira, one of the dealers said Mr Big gained popularity because it looks like the real thing in size and texture, because it is made from high quality rubber.
Its popularity spread through word of mouth and. Wanjiara revealed that, “We sell more than 15 in a good week between Monday and Friday. Most of our clients come from the upmarket side of town,” she told The Nairobian, adding that unlike men, women share a lot among themselves.
Wanjira adds that even though there was an economic meltdown in Kenya in 2017, Mr Big maintained his lion share of the market.
Last year, Beverly Munga who runs G-Spot Kenya told The Nairobian that one sex toy known as Rabbit goes for Sh12,000.
Sex toys are popular with single women, widows and bisexuals. They have gained popularity as “there are no strings attached” and Mr Big can’t get one pregnant, says one woman.
On Twitter, the Ministry of Health quoted the Health CS as directing the hospital management and security agents to submit a report on the findings of the probe by Monday.
He also instructed that the institution beef up security, “beefs up security measures to protect patients and their relatives,” the series of tweets read.
The subject dominated social media Friday with many recounting past experiences affecting them or narrated to them by friends or relatives.
In the documented cases, it appears that there is a pattern of mothers being waylaid by mortuary attendants while going to breastfeed their babies at the nursery between midnight and 3am.
Journalists are camped at the hospital waiting to be addressed by the referral hospital’s Chief Executive Officer Lily Koros on how the hospital management plans to address the situation.
He said that some employees got suspicious of the new workers since there was no advertisement done by the county.
The public alleged that the County Government is recruiting new employees without following regulations that govern the Employment Act.
“Our team submitted a report yesterday where by the said allegations were confirmed true whereby the EACC will take action immediately,” he said.
He said that the allegations received were many and will be treated with urgency.
Mubea asked Kisii residents to work in hand with the EACC and help in exposing any corruption.
The South Nyanza EACC coordinator said that they are still going on with the investigation and will submit a detailed report to the EACC head office.
Cheating is as common as corruption is in Kenya. But who knew that the Ugandans were also following in the amoral actions of their Kenyan neighbours? Some embarrassing incident happened in Eastern Uganda where a man was caught cheating on his wife in Tripple Zero guest house.
The man whose identity has been withheld for security purposes has been reportedly cheating on his wife in Namatala, Mbale district. His wife suspected this and she had asked for the help of traditional healers, who had promised to use get him in the act.
Most likely the man and his sidechick had a wonderful night of pleasure, but it did not end as it started as they found themselves stuck in a rut.
If you know what I mean? Wink! Wink! witchcraft is real, people! Chungeni!
Meanwhile, the wife was unapologetic as she said that the two should act as a warning to all cheating spouses. According to an eyewitness, Gosher Mbale, the adulterous couple were having s*x when they became stuck together.
He added that they had been successfully separated:
“They have been finally separated by a traditional healer. The man’s wife was brought around to make the separation Mukolo so effective. The man has vowed to chase away his wife after this painful experience. The man(Sulah) was cheating on his wife with a lady from Soroti ‘mbu’ but he has a home at Doko Nsambya. Near BCU factory.”
