Bullet still lodged in head of former county official shot in Kileleshwa – Nairobi News

Medics in India said they had done all they could, but it did little to change the condition of former Garissa County Finance Executive, Mr Idriss Mukhtar, who was still in a coma after being shot in the head in August last year.

They said home-based care would be the best option at the moment, so Mr Mukhtar’s family brought him back to Kenya on January 21. A bullet is still lodged in his head, but doctors believe it would be too risky to remove it.

A relative of Mr Mukhtar, who did not wish to be named due to the sensitivity of the matter, told the Nation that the family had converted one of his rooms into an intensive care unit, complete with an adjustable bed, a suction machine, and heart rate and blood pressure monitors, among other devices,

‘BREATHING COMPLICATIONS’

“We have hired two ICU nurses: one for the day and one for the night. We have also hired a physiotherapist for daily sessions and engaged a doctor who can advise in case there are any breathing complications,” the relative said.

“We are buying all the drugs. The medics gave us a list of what is required, and it is very expensive. But there is no option,” he added.

Mr Mukhtar, 34, was shot in his car on the night of August 19, 2018 in Kileleshwa. CCTV footage led to the arrest of Mr David Mwai, suspected to have pulled the trigger. But he died at Parklands Police Station in Nairobi. Police said he committed suicide.

Two other suspects, Mr Mohamud Hussein Aden and Ms Juliet Njoki, are facing trial over the attempt on Mr Mukhtar’s life.

The relative said Mr Mukhtar’s family is disappointed by the way investigators are conducting the case.

“Those who are supposed to be prosecuted for planning and the attack are still free,” he complained. “It is now as good as dead. It seems as if it has been covered up.”

DPP FAVOURING PEOPLE

But Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji, who is the son of the Garissa Senator, has denied claims that he is favouring some people.

In a letter dated October 17, 2018, replying to a query by lawyer Charles Kanjama, Mr Haji dismisssed as false suggestions that his office is favouring some suspects.

“This office does not act on rumours, conjecture, innuendo or contrived theories in making prosecutorial decisions, but is purely guided by evidence and law,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Nation has learnt that Mr Mukhtar’s father, Dr Aden Mukhtar, is planning a press conference in Nairobi this week, where he plans to make a “major” announcement.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
