An ex-convict in West Pokot County is a frustrated man crying for justice after completing his 35 years jail sentence only to get home and find all his land grabbed.
Isaiah Kisur Korinyang born in 1971 told KNA that he is now being forced to live like a scavenger without a place to call home after his own brother allegedly dispossessed him of his land back in 1998 when he was convicted of murder at a Kitale High court and sentenced for life at Shimo La Tewa maximum GK prison.
Kisur said it was the shock of his life after being released from prison on November 13, 2020 only to find neither the house nor property he left behind at Pserum Location in Kipkomo Sub County intact.
“I had a family of two children by then aged 2 and 1 years when I was arrested and found guilty of murder. What they went through I have no clear details since their mother is the one I had accidentally shot dead,” he recounted.
He said he learnt about his house having been pulled down and land fenced off while he was in custody.
“A human rights group visited the home on my behalf but were told there was nothing of the sort. Later I started suspecting there was something fishy. Years later, among those who were objecting towards my return was my brother when a probation report was being prepared,” he added.
Kisur remembers the warm welcome he received from neighbours and the local administration when he was released last year but the biggest challenge was accepted by his own brother whom their mother had divided her land between the two of them.
“I am living like a bird for I have to depend on Good Samaritans and the locals for accommodation and upkeep. When I sense one feels I have overstayed at their place I seek refuge at another’s,” said the devastated ex-prisoner.
He seeks for justice to have his land back, however, he says he is yet to move to court to seek legal redress.
The victim is now calling upon the government to come to his aid so that he can get back all his inheritance to start a new life since he is now a free and reformed person.
He explains that though he has various expertise acquired while serving the jail term, he cannot put it into practice because he lacks capital and home to organise himself.
“Before I was jailed I was a driver but now cannot drive since my licence stands invalid because of the many years without renewal. While at the prisons I trained painting and salesmanship which I am ready to practice but cannot make it because of the situation at hand,” he regretted.
As a piece of advice, Kirur discourages family or community members against taking away property belonging to prisoners since they have rights and families that look upon them for survival.
“Maybe someone thought since I had been sentenced for life I would not make it coming back home a free man and alive after all those years,” he pondered.
He calls on the government to be taking stock and control of all property belonging to visitors of the state to avoid scenarios like the one facing him since his children have nowhere to call home.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
