A form two student is currently admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital after being burnt by coffee from a tea urn in school.

The 14 year old was transferred from Tenri Hospital in Embu to St Teresa Kiambu and later to KNH after the coffee poured on him.

His mother Tabby accused Embu High School of negligence saying she was not briefed on the circumstances surrounding the incident and that the school did not even have a staffer accompanying the boy to hospital in Kiambu.

“Vile niliona mtoto wangu sikuamini, chai inaweza kuchoma mtoto mwili yote? Mimi hawakuni-explainia vizuri hata mtoto mwenyewe nikimuuliza ananiambia hakumbuki,” the mother narrated.

Embu High principal Lynette Manyengo has explained that the incident that happened on Monday at around 6pm was treated with urgency.

“The boy was swinging on a trolley that carries the 40 litre tea urn before dinner when it toppled over and poured on him. Other students who had come to the dining area to drink water heard him scream and rushed to help him removing his clothes and carrying him to my office. I called a taxi and my two boarding masters accompanied by a student leader took the boy to Tenri Hospital where we usually take our students.

“After first aid and stabilization I called the boy’s parents and explained what had happened and they asked that we keep them updated. The hospital recommended that the boy be admitted at a different hospital as their wards were full and so we called the parents to consult.

“They opted for admission at St Teresa in Kiambu and Tenri organized for an ambulance which they said would only have the patient, a nurse and her assistant on board. At 2am I called the mother and she confirmed that her son had arrived and had been admitted,” Manyengo explained.

It was on Tuesday evening that the principal received reports that the parents had accused the school of negligence.

“I have been calling them since then they have not been picking up and today (Thursday) I sent two teachers to Kenyatta where they were told the parents had left strict instructions that no one except them would see the boy. I have told them to hang around till they see the parents as they come in for the evening visit,” she said.

According to Tenri, the boy sustained 30 per cent burns but had been stabilized before being transferred.

“We are very sorry about this, nobody wants a child to be injured we need the student. We will just wait till we are able to speak to the parents in hospital where my teachers are waiting,” Manyengo added.

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.

 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.
