A man who stabbed a Nakuru magistrate has been sentenced to 11 years in jail.

Michael Kuhora Njeri was also fined an alternative Ksh.700,000 on three counts of attempted murder and two counts of causing grievous injury. “You are not a first offender and in my observation you were very remorseful.
However, the circumstances you committed the offence are inexcusable,” Chief Magistrate Josephat Burudi ruled.
Kuhora had been convicted for the attempted murder of Ms. Edith Adhiambo Obondo on November 22, 2016.

The court found him found guilty of the offence after witnesses said he stabbed her several times on the neck and left thigh using a screw driver.

However, Kuhora, seemingly enraged by the court’s ruling, stabbed Nakuru Resident Magistrate Eunice Kelly on her right upper arm. He also assaulted a police officer at the court.

Government officials are at pains to explain the latest corruption scandals that have increased in number.

Taxpayers have reportedly lost an estimated total of about Ksh.12 billion from the scandals.

State officers at the National Youth Service (NYS), the National Cereal and Produce Board (NCPB), Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC) and the Youth Fund are linked to the graft cases.

Citizen TV analysed the cost of the scandals as follows:

The total amount of money lost can be divided into Ksh.256 for each of the 45 million Kenyans.

Ksh. 12B can also buy two packets of maize flour and two bundles of spinach for every citizen.

The litany of multi-billion-shilling corruption scandals in government entities has put President Uhuru Kenyatta in the spotlight yet again.

Critics are questioning whether agencies mandated to deal with corruption have failed or whether State House is too lenient on government officials linked to the scandals. “I know there’s pressure on me concerning these corruption issues,” President Uhuru Kenyatta told members of Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) during a recent meeting.

KEPSA had called for a new strategy in dealing with increased cases of corruption and accountability from top government officials entrusted with managing taxpayer’s money.

Ultimately, the buck stops with the President, though at times he appears helpless in the fight against corruption. “Show me what I have not done, I cannot jail anyone, what do you want me to do? Do you want me to set up a firing squad at Uhuru Park?,” he one time posed.

Former Transport CS Michael Kamau has filed a contempt of court suit against five senior government officials.

They include the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) boss, the Attorney General (AG), the National Police Service boss and the Milimani Court Chief Magistrate.

In the application, Kamau wants the officials to be committed to civil jail for six months for their disobedience of an order issued by the Court of Appeal terminating charges leveled against him. “Summons be issued and are hereby issued to Noordian Haji, Archibishop Eliud Wabukala, Sophia Lepuchirit, Dr. Dabar Abdi Maalim , Micheal Mubea and Joseph Boinett to appear before this court to show cause what they should not be punished for contempt of court,” the application reads in part.

According to the former CS, the Appellate Court terminated the proceedings in case No.11 of 2016 prohibiting the commencement of any further investigations and prosecutions.

He said that on July 28 last year, the Chief Magistrate declined his request for acquittal of charges leveled against him.

A six-year-old has been hospitalised in Laikipia following a brutal beating allegedly by three teachers at the Kamkunji Primary School.

The child was admitted at the Nyahururu Referral Hospital almost at the same time as another boy who was also nearly beaten to death by his father, a Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) officer.

According to the first child’s mother, Mary Wangechi, the school’s head teacher called her informing her that son had a problem.

Upon arrival, her son’s classmates informed her that three teachers found him playing in class and began to beat him up. “Wakaanza kumkanyagilia chini na viatu kisha wakatoa sehemu zake za siri (They stepped on him with their shoes and then exposed his private parts)…,” they told the mother.

Dr. Wambui Ngatia revealed that besides severe trauma, the boy suffered a six-centimeter cut on his left scrotum.

Deputy President William Ruto has demanded that the Agriculture Ministry explain how money meant for farmers ended up in the hands of brokers and businessmen.

According to him, Kenyans deserve much more information than how much money was stolen at the National Cereals and Produce Board scandal. “How can one supply more than 200,000 bags to the National Cereals Board yet he or she has no land? Such a question needs an honest answer,” the DP posed.

Mr. Ruto, who once served as Agriculture minister, further warned that tough action will be taken against those implicated in both the NCPB and National Youth Service (NYS) scandals.

This comes after revelations that Kenyans lost over Ksh9billion in the latest NYS scandal and another Ksh.1.9billion at the NCPB. “Those identified to have participated in the loss of billions of shillings in these scandals should be punished. No one should be spared,” DP Ruto.

The High Court has dismissed an anticipatory bail application in the National Youth Service (NYS) saga that was made by two suspects who are under investigation.

The two are James Thuita Nderitu (Director at Firstling Supplies Limited) and Bernard Masiga Ayienga (Senior Finance Officer at the Ministry of Youth and Gender). “I cannot hesitate to find that this application is unmerited. It does not meet the threshold the grant for anticipatory bail to the applicant. The same is dismissed with orders as to no cost,” Judge Ngenye Macharia ruled.

According to Thuita, the claims of corruption that have been widely reported in the media are mere rumours.

He told the court that that he is a major shareholder and can vouch for Firstling Supplies Limited as an approved supplier of goods for NYS.

Thuita further claimed that he has been subjected to mental and psychological anguish by the media reports, the Director of Public Prosecution, Police and the Director Criminal Investigations.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has appointed former head of Public Service Francis Muthaura as the new chair of the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA). In a gazette notice dated May 25, President Kenyatta further revoked the appointment of Edward Sambili as KRA board chairman.

Edward Sambili once served as Central Bank of Kenya deputy governor and Permanent Secretary in the ministry of Planning.

Muthaura’s appointment comes months ahead of Commissioner General John Njiraini’s exit.

Njiraini has served at the helm of the Revenue authority for five years.
