Ezekiel Onsongo, based at Runda police station, was charged alongside Philip Manyura, Nakumattā€™s account manager, and Dennis Maroko a motorcycle (bodaboda) rider for killing James Karanja on May 7 along Mombasa road at 6 pm.

In the affidavit sworn in court, police said Karanja was shot twice in the head by Onsongo who was on a motorcycle, as he left his office while driving home. Police said the suspects did not steal anything from him. Karanja died on the spot.

Can anyone recover evidence from a dead phone?



by the way @kingolonde ume-quote hii story kutoka wapi?

Kindly explain and also see a thread I have put up on the same.

we should never accept mediocrity. just like we shouldnā€™t eat poorly cooked food in hotels we should not accept poorly written reports in media. Mistakes kama hizi zikipita subeditor, news editor na revise editor walikuwa wapi, then they sell you the full-of-typos paper for sixty pop. And no wonder the leading papers nowadays have a daily feature on page two called corrections and clarificationsā€¦


Next time they should leave such jobs to Muchatha professionals.

In the bigger picture, the first accused should be Nakumatt for exercising weak internal controls.
