“Where he (husband) comes from, they treat corpses as if they still have life, that’s why they will carry it to the home of the deceased a few days before they bury the body, so they can ‘hang’ around it, she penned.

Her relatives fondly referred to her as a great mother to her three kids, exceptional and kind.

Ten suspects arrested in rape saga of woman along River Road, Nairobi

Ten suspects have been arrested in connection with an incident in which a woman was captured on video being raped along Mto Lane off River Road Nairobi. The suspects include the man who raped the woman on an unknown day.

Nairobi police boss Joseph Ole Tito said they are yet to get the woman who was raped in the video. “The suspects are all street urchins and they know the woman. In as much as they knew each other, the manner in which it happened is wrong,” said Tito. He appealed to the woman to go to Central police station and record a statement. The woman was raped by a man believed to be a street boy as about four others watched and cheered on.

Nairobi on alert after 6 lions escape from National Park, one caught, 5 still missing


The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) is looking for
about six lions on the loose from the Nairobi
National Park. The lions are believed to have
escaped to Lang’ata, which is adjacent to the
park today. KWS Corporate Communications
Officer Paul Udoto said they were not certain of
the number of the lions.
“The lions were part of the wild population and
we are depending on the public to report if they
sight them,” he said.
The wildlife service has advised any person who
spots the lions to call KWS. Mr Udoto said the
KWS was aware that a lioness had cubbed on
the border of Lang’ata Barracks and the park
and was monitoring the situation.
“However, this morning we were called at 4am
and told that some two lionesses, we believe,
including the new mother, had been seen on the
road near Lang’ata Hospital. We responded
immediately. But we have not been able to
track them down,” he explained.
He said another call was made by a member of
the public at around 5am claiming to have come
across the lions at the bypass near the National
Housing Corporation in Lang’ata.
“We are still combing through this area,”
Meanwhile, in an update, the said that one of
the lions (pictured) has been caught in Kibera.
