Man arrested for cyber bullying, threatening teenager



Police in Rarieda sub-county have arrested a man accused of bullying a 19-year-old woman online.
The suspect who has been identified as Joseph Maina was arrested on Saturday after he booked a hotel room in Ndori trading centre where he was to meet the woman.
Confirming the incident, area Police boss Thomas Ototo said that the 25-year-old suspect was arrested after he was tricked by the victim.
He is being held at Aram Police station and will be arraigned in court once they are through with the investigations.
He said that the suspect lured the victim, Wendy Atieno, to send him nude photos of her before he threatened to upload them on social media.
“He demanded Sh15, 000 from the girl, failure to which he told her to have sex with him,” said Ototo.
In a 24-page WhatsApp chat seen by The Standard, the victim fell into the suspect’s trap after he promised to sponsor her education.
While narrating her ordeal, Atieno said that when they first met on Facebook, the victim introduced himself as a woman who lived in the UK and promised to sponsor her education.
She, however, became scared when he (the suspect) later introduced himself as a Kenyan man and convinced her to send him nude photos of herself and videos so that he could send Sh100, 000.
“It should be erotic my dear and that should be 2minutes. For that, I’ll pay Sh130, 000 and it should be me and you in this,” read part of the WhatsApp chats.
Although she pleaded with Maina not to upload the photos online, he continued threatening her.
According to Atieno, she tricked the suspect to travel to Ndori where they were to meet. Instead, she alerted the police who came and arrested him.
“I had not shared this information with anyone and it reached a point that I was contemplating of committing suicide than see my photos go viral,” she said.
Police have already launched investigations into the matter, adding that the suspect was found with sex-enhancing drugs.

He is a very dangerous man! Sonko’s daughter accuses senator of attempting to kill her



Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip and Saumu Mbuvi, daughter of former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, have announced their separation following wrangles and disagreement.

The reports were fuelled by photos and videos of Senator Loitiptip hanging out with a female friend.

Saumu, on Instagram, announced that the two have separated, claiming that she has undergone domestic violence under Loitiptip.

“These are the things he did to me,” wrote Saumu, in one of her photos showing a swollen face and bruised lips.

“He almost killed me. I will forever fight for women to stand for their rights. Never allow a man to be violent to you.”

She also claimed that the senator had neglected their child, leaving Saumu as the primary caregiver.

Loitiptip told that Saumu shared her father’s traits and was suffering from bipolar disorder, threatening to expose her past to prove his claim.

The two have been dating for months and at one point planned to get married. However, Sonko’s daughter clarified that the two had split before officiating their union.

“Wedding date confirmed,” she captioned a picture of herself and the senator in June 2020.

Her previous relationship with businessman cum politician Ben Gatu also ended after she accused him of being violent.

US raises alarm over Covid-19 cases surge in Tanzania



The US government has revealed that there are significant cases of Covid-19 in Tanzania.

This is just a week after it advised its citizens against travelling to the East African country.

“The US Embassy is aware of a significant increase in the number of Covid-19 cases since January 2021,” the Embassy said.

In a Health alert, the US said the practice of Covid-19 mitigation and prevention measures remains limited.

The Tanzanian government has not released aggregate numbers on Covid-19 cases or deaths since April 2020.

“Healthcare facilities in Tanzania can become quickly overwhelmed in a healthcare crisis. Limited hospital capacity throughout Tanzania could result in life-threatening delays for emergency medical care,” US said.

The Department of State’s travel advisory level for Tanzania is Level 3.

The US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention says that travellers should avoid all travel to Tanzania.

The Embassy continues to recommend that all individuals take caution in day-to-day activities.

President John Magufuli assured the 58 million inhabitants that they need not worry about observing Covid-19 preventative measures.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday made a surprising stop to lecture Nairobi residents after finishing his engagement at the National Cargo Deconsolidation Centre (NCDC-Nairobi).

The Head of State said he was angry at Nairobians for being against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill stating that the report has given Nairobi more constituencies.

“If we have a BBI that says the people of Nairobi will have more constituencies and if it’s bursaries a child in Mathare who today receives Ksh500, how will that child study up to university level,” President Kenyatta said.

“But there is another child who gets Ksh100,000 in Busury per year is that right?… BBI is not for helping Raila or Uhuru it is for you,” he continued.

Uhuru went on to disclose that he has no plans to rule after his term is over and his interest is in finishing the job that Kenyans elected him to do.
