The body of Nation Media Group switchboard operator Mildred Odira, who had been missing for a week, has two wounds on her face. The lower body is also smashed.

Her trouser was torn at the top and her inner wear partly lowered.

A family member said they want police to probe if she was murdered last Tuesday even they await for post-mortem results.

Records at the City Mortuary, where her family traced her body on Monday morning, show that it was brought in last Tuesday at 6.31 am and booked as an unknown person. The body was taken to the mortuary by Kasarani traffic police.

Administrators at the City Mortuary say the police alluded to collecting the body in Mwiki.

Ms Odira was last seen on Tuesday at 4am by security guards in Kariobangi South where she lives.

The guards had hailed a taxi for her in the wee hours of the morning to rush her to the hospital.

She had recently been diagnosed with diabetes, hypertension and ulcers.

Police had on Saturday arrested the taxi driver in connection with the disappearance.

On Friday, when the taxi operator was questioned, he told the family that he drove and left Mildred at the Ruaraka Uhai Neema Hospital.

CONDOLENCES

Her friends have been posting their messages of condolences as they reminisce the good times they had with her.

Colleagues who worked with her at Nation Media Group remembered her as a jovial person who was ready to assist a friend when necessary.

Former Daily Nation reporter Eunice Kilonzo said; “Mildred was the quiet lady at the corner of the office and was quick to help you make a call when you were following up on a story. The switchboard desk was close to ‘Migingo’ —a sitting island where newer journalist sat— and she was such a pleasant soul who always reminded us to go grab tea and shared njugu with us. The times we were on night duty together, she would follow the late night news keenly with us and even offer insights on what other angles to consider. During these shifts, she’d be the one to alert us when time was ready for us to leave. So sad to hear about your death. I pray for strength for your family during this tough time.”

Former Daily Nation correspondent Lilian Mutavi wrote; “Friday in the newsroom is normally a slow day and Nation center was no different. I sat near the nation center switchboard christened Migingo and Mildred was my neighbor. After filing stories and had nothing to do I and my friend Teressia Ngugi also a staff at Nation Media Group would turn switch board to a photo studio. “I have a better camera leave alone those Chinese phones you own,” Mildred would tell us as we took photos. Since I did not have her phone number I had to wait until Monday before she could share them on what’s app. Then our friendship grew the three of us would use their flask to get extra tea. I would be late for the morning meetings but Mildred and Terresia would save me breakfast. When the company decided to lay off people all the staff at switch board were sacked but she was lucky unfortunately I lost my job and she encouraged me. Last December is when we bumped to each other on Kimanthi street. She had just left the office heading home we did some catching up. She would see me off as I was headed to Odeon. I wish I knew that was the last of me seeing we would have talked and talked never stopping. When I first heard of her disappearance it was late at night and I called Terressia the whole night thou she never picked, the next day she got back and asked for me to continue praying. I have lost a friend we had similar characters jumpy, jovial and we would move from one desk to the next every morning just to say hi to all the staff. When the office was rearranged and we moved to different sided I would just dial switchboard just to ask her to call Teressia for me. “Teressia is not here anapenda kurukaruka akirudi nitakusho,” she would laugh n hang-up.”

Other Kenyans online also expressed their sympathy.

Odhiambo Omollo said; “Some things just break my heart.This is extreme.Lord rest her soul in peace.You understand better Almighty Father.”

Mercy Murichu wrote; “oO Lord…I just remembered how the mum cried on tv jana..saying..at least if the taxi guy killed her…aseme tuu..they go ahead n bury her…Oh Lord ps be with this family..very sad.”

Beatrice Mukiri commented; “So sad.whats happening nowardays ?.too many deaths in unclear circumstances.”

Douglas Moseti said; “Oh God!! Why this? So so heartbreaking. How will her mother receive this news May good Lord Jesus give t

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.

Love At First Sight?

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.
