Migori Man Who Eats Snakes, Lizards, Chameleons And Tortoises

Published

on

Which are your favorite foods? As you think of the answers, Thomas Odembo, a 35 year old watchman by profession from Ogongo village in Nyatike Sub County has chameleons, lizards and tortoises as his favourite food.

Mr Odembo says he developed appetite and interests on chameleons, lizards, tortoises, cats and dogs when he was employed as a guard for a Chinese supplier.

Odembo who rears his own animals to feed on in his compound says everyone should try his tastes.

“These food is actually healthy and totally sweet that any other red or white meats that people are eating.” Odembo told a local daily.

“I have lost appetite for cow and goat meat. I don’t eat pork too. I have enough chameleons and tortoises for myself and I’m ready to supply the village the surplus,” Odembo said.

“I took chameleon last night for supper, this tortoise was brought by a neighbor who found it in his garden,” Odembo said.

Odembo the father of seven says he learnt how to rear and prepare these animals from his former bosses, the Chinese.

Odembo says the Chinese eat these animals and they don’t affect them. He is urging all the fellow village people to start embracing this new diet.

Odembo went ahead and explained that the animals taste just like ordinary meat.

“My favourite meal time and again is reptiles especially snakes, lizards, chameleons and tortoise. My wife, Pauline Akoth and my seven children don’t eat my food. They call it trash and poison” Odembo explained.

Dishonored: Kenya’s Rugby Players Air Their Frustrations And Poor State Of Life

Published

on

Kenya has very talented sportspersons. From athletes to soccer and to one very successful sport in Kenya, Rugby.

Kenya 7s has been having a decent and successful time at world rugby series.

But the results are far more likely to be worse if the current salary and allowances situation goes on.

Players like Willy Amboka and Dennis Ombachi have taken their salary grievances and stolen allowances to Twitter in what seems like a tip of the iceberg on the pathetic conditions KRU is putting its players through while expecting good results.

The two Kenya Rugby Sevens aside team players have complained about the problems facing their mens team.

Ombachi says they are being paid peanuts with no allowance. Something that is seemingly making it tough for many players to pay for their basic needs such as house rents. https://twitter.com/Willyambaka/status/1131844294149591040?s=19

With Willy Amboka backing him on how it’s hard to explain to the landlords why the house rents haven’t been paid. https://twitter.com/ombachi13/status/1131851931134124032?s=19

National Players are being paid 28K per month. Without any allowances and paid trainings or travels.

Ambaka and Ombachi also says Medical fee and house allowances of the Sevens team has been misused by KRU Bosses.

Players are forced to pay for their own medical fees if they get an injury.

Kenya is resourceful with raw talent but it suffers from the unknown management syndrome that has been brought about by nepotism and tribalism in the current KRU Board.https://twitter.com/ombachi13/status/1131808209214287872?s=19

It’s also sad how national rugby players are living like peasants and forced to beg for money and food from friends, fans and family.

Ambaka also expressed his frustration about how his fellow mates are going through hard times to an extent of borrowing everything https://twitter.com/Willyambaka/status/1131844667685916672?s=19

While Ombachi saying that all of their money were stolen by corrupt KRU bosses

 

Last but not least, the unhappy Ombachi talked about how KRU bosses have neglected men’s gym and training areas. https://twitter.com/ombachi13/status/1131804677396471808?s=19

The issue of nepotism between two national rugby teams also arose.

With what clearly indicates exploitation of players from the National women’s rugby teams.

Are the women afraid of talking about their off pitch matters? Or someone is working things from their side.

We are waiting for the official response from KRU Bosses about the off pitch issues that are tearing apart our national rugby teams.This is not the first time ugly face of rugby management is coming to the surface.

Last year during the World Sevens Series in Paris, players staged a cold protest when they concealed the Brand Kenya brand who was a sponsor.

Shujaa had met with Brand Kenya and KRU CEO and it was announced the board had come to sponsor the team to a tune of KSh 20 million for a period of eight months. Brand Kenya boss declared each player would be given a token of KSh 100, 000 in form of cheques in appreciation of our exemplary performance.

KRU boss interrupted the payment plan and asked Brand Kenya to send money to the union which would in turn channel it to their accounts. Players were never paid until a serious online protest was staged. It’s disturbing seeing how our boys who bring pride to the country are being treated with utmost disrespect. Mismanagement in Kenya’s sports especially rugby is a cancer that need to be cut off.

The Court Has Refused To Admit The Confession Of Julius Wambua Musyoki’s Daughter That She Faked Her Rape

Published

on

Justice delayed is as much painful as justice denied. Julias Wambua Musyiki’s appeal evidence against his life imprisonment sentence has been dismissed by the Court of Appeal.

Wambua had appealed his sentence through his advocates, Cyrus Maweu and Mike Mwema. He said he decided to appeal the case since his daughter, who the inmate was accused of raping, had confessed of lying to the court.

Wambua’s daughter who was featured in a citizen TVs production, #PrisonDiaries, confessed before cameras alleging that she was forcefully coached by the mother to lie in court that the father had defiled her. She was 10 years as by 2011.

The Appellate Court head, Justice William Ouko in company of Justice Wanjoru Karanja and Justice Jamila Mohamed dropped the request by Wambua’s legal team to add her daughter’s confession as the evidence in his sentence appeal.

The Appellate Judges said the period to submit such requests to the court from the convict had already lapsed according to the court-set timelines.

Wambua’s advocates contended that the court was being unfair to the convict. The advocates said the court was not keen in questioning the prosecution evidence and witnesses.

Wambuia through his lawyers said that the court never gave him a chance to defend himself despite him willing to pay for all the medical tests and checks. The court convicted Wambua in bad faith because of the alleged crime.

Moses Ome’rera, the prosecution lawyer objected the inmates evidence saying that the submission will need to re-open the case with another set of witnesses to recant the testimony in the already closed case.

Counsel Ome’rera did not disagree with the inconsistency of the dates as claimed by the appellant. He said that Wambua belongs to jail because all the previous testimonies true.

Wambua is currently serving a life imprisonment sentence at Kamiti maximum security Prison. He was sentenced in 2011.
