Robber or innocent lawyer? Police in a spot over Juja shooting – Nairobi News

Published

on


Was he a lawyer or a thug? This is the question that is now being raised by various bodies questioning the killing of Mr Jeremiah Meeme Kinyua who was killed with four others in Juja, Kiambu County.

Mr Kinyua, according to the Law Society of Kenya, was until his death a practising lawyer and an active member of the society.

But according to the police, Mr Kinyua and the four others were planning to rob Lexo Petrol Station in Juja.

“The Law Society of Kenya is shocked and gravely saddened by the news of the heinous and brutal murder in cold blood of one of its members, the late Jeremiah Meeme Kinyua,” read part of the statement signed by Allen Gichuhi the LSK president.

POSTMORTEM

Yesterday (Friday), a postmortem was conducted on his body but the family did not reveal much about it despite being contacted by Nairobi News.

Mr Gichuhi, asked the office of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to investigate the matter.

More lawyers condemned the killing with Ms Jane Odiya, his immediate boss, eulogising the late “as a hardworking and focused lawyer”.

The Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) on the other side said that it was investigating the matter.

IPOA said that it had “launched independent investigations into the incident with a view of unravelling the circumstances that led to the fatal shootings.”

Mr Kinyua’s body was positively identified on Wednesday at the City Mortuary and taken to the Kenyatta University morgue after a postmortem was conducted.

On Tuesday night when the five were shot police said that they were robbers.

DRCongo election official denies US corruption claim

Published

on


The United States on Friday imposed new sanctions on Corneille Nangaa and two other Congolese officials who monitored last year’s polls.

The Treasury Department froze Nangaa’s US assets. Washington accuses the trio of corruption and of obstructing democracy in December’s presidential election.

“I have never been involved in any kind of corruption,” Nangaa said on Twitter on Saturday.

“We acted according to the guidelines of the (electoral commission) board and under the control of the parliament.”

The US Treasury sanctions also target commission vice president Norbert Basengezi and Marcellin Mukolo Basengezi, a son of Basengezi who is an adviser to Nangaa.

The election saw Felix Tshisekedi controversially declared the winner, with the blessing of outgoing president Joseph Kabila.

It marked the country’s first peaceful handover of power since independence from Belgium in 1960.

Fellow opposition leader Martin Fayalu accused Nangaa of rigging the results.

Zarika was looking for the points whilst Phiri was looking for a knockout but Zarika kept coming out of the corner with swings that caught the Zambian off-guard.

Phiri worked hard but did not land most of her blows and only took the fifth round while the rest went mostly Zarika’s way.

Zarika reminded the excited crowd in attendance how she earned her name Iron first by landing heavy Punches down Phiris way, that gained her vital points to stand tall as the WBC Champion.

It was the Kenyan’s third title defence in Nairobi against the 32-year-old Zambian who was bidding to reclaim her WBC belt lost in Mexico and hoping to atone for her first loss to Zarika.

NATO confirms plans for US military storage in Poland

Published

on


The Wall Street Journal reported that the $260 million facility will be located in Powidz, some 200 km (120 miles) west of Warsaw, and will house armoured vehicles, ammunition and weapons for a brigade.

Building work will start later this year and is expected to take two years, alliance chief Jens Stoltenberg told the Journal. A NATO official confirmed the report was accurate.

NATO has increased defences along its eastern flank in the wake of Russia’s annexation of Crimea and its role in the ongoing Ukraine conflict.

Battlegroups have been deployed in the three Baltic states as well as Poland and NATO has launched an overhaul of its command structure and is taking steps to improve how quickly it can move troops and equipment around Europe in case of incursion.

The practice of “pre-positioning” equipment in strategic locations is also aimed at making it easier to deploy resources quickly in a crisis.

Stoltenberg told the Journal the new facility would “underpin the increased US presence in Poland”.

Poland’s government has been beefing up its military ties with the US, last month agreeing to buy American mobile rocket launchers worth $414 million and a year ago signing a $4.75 billion contract for a US-made Patriot anti-missile system.

Warsaw has also been pushing for the US to open a permanent military base. Nearly 5,000 American troops are already stationed on a rotational basis as part of NATO operations.
