With Mercury Sugar In Kenya, Lawyer Donald Kipkorir Now Imports His Own Sugar From The UK

Published

on

When Interior CS Matiang’i appeared before the parliamentary committee today to answer in the sugar saga, hthey made a conflicting report to his previous assertion that the impounded contraband sugar was contaminated with mercury. This sent cold chills amongst many Kenyans given the complications of such an ingestion that would come with including organs shutting. Matiang’i, contradicted by saying his statement was as only cautionary and that final tests are yet to affirm his claims.

While this could be a sigh to many who fear having been poisoned or  exposed, some people are just not buying it and taking anything into chances. Lawyer Kipkorir better known by his peers as DBK, is as always setting the bar too high once again. He’s importing his own sugar and don’t get it wrong, he’s not bringing it from Brazil like the sugar barons , he’s importing it from the United Kingdom in not outrageous amount but little fir his own consumption.

A post from his Facebook page.

Kipkorir has openly criticized and castigated the importers of poisonous sugar and had not shied away from calling for the prosecution of billionaire Jaswant Rai of West Kenya Sugar Company found to have been amongst the largest importers of the controversial sugar. Rai who is in the limelight fir state capture given his vast influence, took advantage of the free tax window period and imported a whole 180,000 Metric Tonnes of sugar.

There have been numerous calls for the arrest and prosecution of Rai and associates for the hazardous exposure by sugar posed to the public. Rai owns Kabras Sugar which so far has been boycotted by many consumers despite dominating market shelves having been flagged as being the brand used in repackaging the lethal sugar.

While those privileged like DBK have array of options to go for, poor Kenyans who are hand tied have less but stuck with the controversial sweetener. The Rai and group are yet to be grilled by parliament and definitely get to be taken into action by the authorities.

While their fate roams in uncertainty given influence in government, one thing remains that the 1.3m MT of sugar dumped in Kenya will disrupt the economies that rely on the sugar industry and the health implications from this sugar is here to stay.

Monica Kimani.

As the nation comes to terms with the death of Sharon Otieno, the Rongo University student who was found murdered and body dumped in a thicket in what is suspected to be out of fallout from the affair she had with Migori Governor Obado, another bizzare killing has struck.

Monica Kimani, 29 was found murdered in the coldest way, her severely mutilated  body was discovered by her brother George at Luciane Apartments on Kitale Lane off Denis pritt road. The killer(s) slit her throat open, dumped the body in bathtub 🛀 left the water running in what reads like a murder movie.

It remains unclear how the killers would commit such a scale of crime at a gated and heavily secured neighborhood which is just near to the private home of the President.

Monica at her home

According to the brother who discovered her lifeless body, the two were chatting on that night before she went silent and he assumed she had slept. However, her calls and texts went unanswered the next day which was unusual of her according to the family prompting the mother to send George to go check on her sister and that’s when he came to discover the horrific news after breaking the door.

Detectives are trying to join the dots in the mysterious murder and it has been established that Monica hosted two of her friends Wednesday night before her body was found in a bloodbath on Thursday At 1pm.

Monica had just returned from South Sudan where she runs an established business and even her social media pages points at her wide networks with Sudanese. The family has a business there too. She was about to fly to Dubai for vacation before she was struck.

As she celebrated her birthday

The motive of the murder is yet to be established but looks like a professional hit, it takes extra guys not only to cut open one’s throat but to comfortably walk in and out of such an establishment after the murder. With keen investigations, CCTV footages both within the apartment and out on the road in that estate will easily piece up the movements and identities of killers.

VIDEO: Moments When The Ugandan Military Took Over Entebbe Runway Before Arresting And Bundling Away Bobi Wine

Bobi Wine moments before the plane touched down in Entebbe

Bobi Wine a prolific Ugandan legislature today made his way home after a trip to the USA where he had gone to seek specialized treatment following torture in the military camp where he was being held on treason charges which were trumped by the regime.

Bobi made a stopover at the Nairobi’s JKIA where he was received joyfully with airport staff and fellow passengers who scrambled for photos with him. Aboard Kenya Airways, Bobi sat calmly and later in the middle of the flight drowned into deep thoughts perhaps wondering what was awaiting when the plane touched down.

The writings were already on the wall, the government had banned public gathering and warned against turning out for Bobi’s grand reception which had been scheduled from the Entebbe airport.

Bobi Wine’s brother was arrested earlier this morning while making preparations for the welcoming of his brother. Police had also camped at various homes of leading opposition leaders stopping them from leaving to mobilize grounds for receiving Bobi Wine.

When the plane touched down in Entebbe, Bobi seemed uneasy perhaps the reality was hitting him that nothing had changed as the military had taken over the airport as if it was a high profile terrorist landing. The military was literally on the run way. The plane carrying Bobi was even taken to the far end of the airport where the military was waiting.

As soon as he got off the plane, he was met by army officials who first greeted him before turning into their custom beastly mode, bundling him into an awaiting military van and driving him away to unknown destination. Press was totally blocked and passengers were restricted from filming anything. Those found had their phones confiscated and photos deleted. We’re however, the Kenya Insights so we had our ways.
