As the year ends, K24 Digital looks at bizarre stories from Murang'a county that traumatized the entire country in 2021.
Love for Sabina Chege
In November, a man identified as Ouma Allan took to his Facebook page to flower Muranga Woman Rep Sabina Chege with praises before confessing his love for the politician.
In a post uploaded on Saturday, November 6, Ouma described the love he has for Chege as inestimable, offering his two cars to the Woman Rep for use in her campaigns ahead of the August 2022 polls.
“Changing a man’s crude love to the person he proclivity adores cannot be initiated in a second. I must admit that my love for Murang’a Woman Representative Hon Sabina Chege is inestimable,” Ouma wrote.
The man who also penned a similar message to Sabina Chege in 2020 said the Murang’a Woman Rep has all he wants in a woman.
“In full realization of her political desire to cling to the county’s top seat in Murang’a, I hereby proffer my two cars for her gubernatorial campaigns across all walks in Murang’a county,” he said.
Father kills son
In another bizarre incident, a father and son from Nyakiura village in Gaturi, went into hiding after allegedly killing one of their family members on a Sunday morning in February 2021.
Elius Kamau, a retired Anglican evangelist, is said to have colluded with his son Lawrence Maina in committing the murder.
According to Denis Kamau, a nephew of the deceased, Kamau and Maina called Franis Karaya, 28, from his house and took him to a farm where they tied him to a tree.
The duo said they wanted to discipline him for allegedly misusing the family’s resources.
“The father said Karaya had been selling items from their home and using the money to buy alcohol,” the victim’s nephew said.
The nephew said his uncle pleaded for mercy but his prayers fell on deaf ears as his father and brother beat him up with thick sticks.
From a distance, Kamau said he noticed that his uncle had stopped making movements and he called out for help in vain.
