A manager from Diamond Trust Bank (DTB) in Eastleigh has pleaded not guilty to charges related to the 14 Riverside attack in Nairobi. Sophia Njoki Mbogo was on Wednesday charged with three counts failure to report suspicion of proceeds of crime, aiding and abetting terrorism and failure to report money laundering. Mbogo who appeared before Milimani Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi has been in police custody for 30 days. Prosecution opposed to her release on cash bail and the application will be heard on Wednesday afternoon. She is accused of allowing large sums of money to be transacted through her bank via MPesa. In an affidavit however, Mbogo claimed innocence saying the bank only acts as an agent of the mobile money transfer service. She was arraigned alongside six other individuals, one of whom allegedly withdrew Ksh.9million through the same till number in different batches and then sent it to Somalia. Al Shabaab have since claimed responsibility for the attack at 14 Riverside which left 21 people dead. Terrorism RiversideDrive DusitAttack Kenya

The Anti-terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) has withdrawn terror-link allegations against five NTSA employees and four others over the Dusit attack that left 21 dead and scores injured. The agency released the five; director of registration and licensing Jacqueline Githinji and her deputy Cosmas Ngesa together with clerical officers, Irungu Irvin, Stephen Mbaka and Charles Ndung’u. ATPU had cited the two vehicles bearing the same registration number plate KCN 304E with one having been used in the commission of the terror attack and the other one having been found elsewhere in Kitengela. The ATPU, through the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, also released Gladys Kaari, Guleid Abdihakim, Hussein Khamis and insurance agent Zipporah Karanja. Kaari was detained after ATPU established that she aided the leader of the six terrorists killed during the attack Ali Salim Gichunge to withdraw cash at her M-Pesa shop despite not having a national ID. State counsel Duncan Ondimu said the after investigations, ATPU did not find evidence linking them to the attack and is no longer interested in keeping them in custody. Mr. Ondimu said the six have been cooperating well with investigators and answered all the questions they were asked during the investigations. He however said there are separate ongoing investigations that will require the suspects to report at the ATPU headquarters periodically. Only Andihakim was released unconditionally. The NTSA officials will be required to report at the ATPU head office every Thursday beginning next week. Kaari, Karanja and Khamis will be reporting at the counter terrorism unit offices once every month. Ondimu added that two NTSA officials; Anthony Kadu and Augustine Musembi will remain in custody pending completion of investigations against them. DusitAttack TerrorAttack DuncanOndimu

One of the National Transport and Safety Authority officials detained for 30 days in relation to the 14 Riverside Drive attack now wants the court to revise its orders. Jacqueline Githinji argues that she has been unconstitutionally detained pending completion of the investigations. She further says she is ready to take leave from her work station and assist investigators in unravelling the truth behind the mystery of identical number plates of the vehicle used by the terrorists. “The applicant continues to be detained at Muthaiga Police cells without being formally charged or a holding charged being preferred against them,” reads the application. She now wants the court to revise the period of detention or order her release on term adding that she is willing to comply and abide by any terms that the court will set. Though her lawyer, Githinji notes that on January 30,2019, she was arrested while on duty at the main offices of the NTSA. According to her, 30 days detention is excessive and unreasonable since the investigators have confiscated her mobile phone and electronic equipment including computers. “I have a fixed abode and being a mother of three absconding or failing to comply with the bond terms is impracticable,” said Githinji. She accused NTSA officers of indiscriminate arrest, an act that she says is leading to continuous violation of her rights and fundamental freedom. The Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) however maintained that they need the 30 days to complete investigations. ATPU cited the two vehicles bearing the same registration number plate KCN 304E with one having been used in the commission of the terror attack and the other one having been found elsewhere in Kitengelea. The investigations seek to establish who issued the fake number plates to the terrorists. The matter will be heard on Thursday, February 7, 2109. Terrorism DusitAttack NTSA Kenya Investigations

A 32-year-old man, who posted to his Facebook page ill remarks against Muslims – after the January 15 Riverside terror attack –, has been arraigned in court. Morris Wachira Wanjohi, who is a finance and administration manager at Oserian Fair Trade, appeared before Nakuru Chief Magistrate Josephat Kalo. The suspect, who was charged with inciting the public against Islamic religion, pleaded not guilty. On January 17, Wanjohi took to Facebook to post fake Quran verses, claiming that that they encouraged members of the Islamic religion to terminate lives. His post came just two days after four terrorists stormed Riverside Drive complex and killed 21. The suspect was released on a bond of Ksh100, 000 or a cash bail of Ksh50, 000. The case will be mentioned on February 28 and a hearing would follow on April 4. MorrisWachira DusitAttack NakuruCounty JosephatKalo FacebookPostStalemate

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and anti-terror unit have nabbed six more suspects, among them the wife and father to the suicide bomber in the Tuesday 14 Riverside terror attack. Suhaila Mwalim Bakari, wife to Muhir Khalid Riziki and Khalid Jumaane Riziki, father to the 25-year old terrorist were apprehended in Majengo, Mombasa, and are being detained to explain their interactions with the attacker before and during the terror attack. According to police, the 25-year-old suicide bomber, Muhir Khalid Riziki, sneaked back into the country on Sunday, through Elwak in Mandera County, headed to Takaba, before settling in Moyale town. He then left for Nairobi, aboard a Moyale Raha bus, and as soon as he arrived in the city, he set off for Guango estate, Muchatha village, Kiambu County where Ali Salim Gichunge resided. Gichunge was the Tuesday attack’s master planner, and hosted Muhir for a briefing on his role in the incident. Muhir, who arrived earlier at the 14 Riverside drive, was tasked with blowing himself up outside the Secret Gardens Restaurant, trigger panic and anxiety, which would be a signal to his colleague attackers to join in, and spray with bullets, those fleeing from the scene. But fortunately a disconnect in the timing between Muhir and the other attackers enabled more people to escape. Detectives say Muhir was recruited into the terror world by Ramadhan Hamisi, now in Somalia, after attending prayers at Musa mosque, in Mombasa that was for almost a decade, associated with radicalization, recruitment of Al Shabaab and religious extremism. Efforts to flush out the radical elements have been ongoing. Police also raided Parkside Hotel in Kitui town and arrested 3 foreigners and one Kenyan, in connection to the Tuesday attack. Detectives are however still scratching their heads over the whereabouts of Maryam Abdi, who is said to have ferried from Lamu to Nairobi through Mombasa, the weapons that were used on Tuesday. Investigators are camping in Lamu, Mombasa, Isiolo, Meru, Nairobi and Uasin Gishu, to nab more terror suspects and those linked to the attack 4 days ago. Dusitattack Riversideattack terrorattack

WHY NEW YORK TIMES REPORTING MIMICS SOCIALITES PARADING NUDITY ONLINE. Disclaimer : I am writing this article, more than 24 hours after New York Times published a sensational and insensitive article about riverside terror attack with gory images on it. Hours after they were given a chance to pull it down but they have not. On 15 January 2019, there was a tragic terror attack at Dusit D2 Nairobi. Hours later, New York Times, an American magazine published the story of the attack. In their article dubbed ‘Shabab Claim Responsibility for Deadly Assault on Nairobi Hotel-Office Complex’ the magazine used graphic photos of the victims showing dead bodies in a restaurant, injured people bleeding and other gory details of the scene. I am wired in such a way that my preference is for a diplomatic approach to things. I like cutting people some slack, especially if there is a lot of heat coming from other reactionary quarters. Most Kenyans who were still on edge following the attack were angered after reading the article because they felt the reporting was more sensational than objective. I knew they had the right to be angry, but as a trained journalist who prefers to come up with a more detailed and informed response, I decided not to join the deportkimiko band wagon. When such horrific events happen, there is intense deadline pressure to be the first to report and many times under such circumstances one might find it hard to balance between objectivity and sensationalism. The article that was done by incoming bureau chief of East Africa Kimiko de Freytas-Tamura showed gory photos of the dead and wounded. The article, published hours after the attack, did not take into account the fact that some relatives of victims had not known their fate. Those who worked at the complex and its surrounding buildings were at the time frantically sending distress messages on social media. It was a time when one feels a strong impulse towards defending humanity and the values of one’s faith. The photos published on the magazine appeared to drift away from humanity’s values by Link on my bio ☝ newyorktimes dusitattack riversideshooting aluochoitoonthemove.

Tuesday 14 January 2019. Less than 1km from my desk, a drama unfolded. We heard an explosion and gunshots, and I thought a building had collapsed and cables were snapping. We were on lockdown for 1.5 hours until management could ensure our safety, which I appreciated a lot. Too many people died a senseless death and, with the terrorist attack so close to our door, I drove home and got home, hugged my husband who looked like a huge weight had lifted off his shoulders, sat on the ground, hugged my kid and welcomed all the kisses my dogs wanted to give me. My heart goes out to the 21 people who passed away and their families. There are no words for this. But Kenya stays strong. Life starts up again and (at least for a while) drivers on the road are just a little bit more courteous and friendly than before terroristattack terrorist dusitattack Nairobi Kenya

Bernadette Akinyi Konjalo, the revenue director at dusitD2 Hotel, was brutally killed by terrorists while she was helping her colleagues and guests run to safety. Ms Konjalo, who had previously worked at Tribe Hotel in Nairobi, was seen by her colleagues and guests at the upscale hotel guiding occupants to safe exit points, after sounds of gunshots and blasts rang out Tuesday afternoon. While at the entrance, the plucky manager came face-to-face with terrorists. Her reflexes, expectedly, drove her to run toward inner spaces of the hotel. The terrorists fired a bullet at her, which pierced through her left hand that she was using to shield her face. The gun ball drove into the right side of her face, killing Ms Konjalo on the spot. “She died while saving lives, and it is sad we would never be able to pay her back for that selfless deed,” said her colleague. Ms Konjalo worked at Tribe Hotel for six years before moving to dusitD2 Hotel in March, 2014, where she rose up the ranks from the position of assistant front office manager to the director of revenue. A dedicated, lively and loving person are the words her colleagues at dusitD2 Hotel use to describe the last born in a family of four siblings. Back at her parents’ home in Dondi Village, South East Alego ward in Siaya County, somberness, disbelief and pain have engulfed her father, Mzee Vitalis Odhiambo Konjalo.

A God-fearing man, who was loving, responsible, outgoing and had zero tolerance for alcohol” are the words friends of Isiolo-born and bred suspected terrorist, Ali Salim Gichunge, used to describe their old buddy, who relocated from the area in 2015. Police reports claim that Gichunge coordinated the terror plot by keeping in touch regularly with the four terrorists, who were killed by security forces in Dusit complex early Wednesday. Gichunge, a Kibiricha Secondary School alumnus, who was famously known as Farouk in Isiolo, posted admirable education results, his friend Moses Kinyua, who was a class behind Gichunge at Hekima Primary School, said. “I am shocked. Not even in my wildest imaginations would I have thought that he would one day be linked to terror-related activities,” said Kinyua. “My heart goes to the families of all those who lost their lives in the terror attack, and also those whose loved ones were wounded in the cowardice act,” said Kinyua. Ironically, Gichunge, in his younger years, advised his peers against joining any terrorist group or subscribing to radical lessons. Gichunge’s mother, Sakina Mariam, was arrested at her Isiolo home on Thursday, January 17 and taken to the Anti – terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) offices in the county before being transferred to the DCI headquarters in Nairobi for further interrogations. The Dusit terror attack, which left 21 civilians dead, lasted 17 hours, with its culmination being the killing of four terrorists. 14RiverSide DusitAttack TerrorSuspect JamesChuchu SalimGichunge DCIProbe

I feel like a lot of foreign correspondents in Kenya are missing the point of the critique of the New York Times over the Riverside attack photos. The majority of the tweets I have seen about this from Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) have essentially said “please take down the photo of brutally murdered black people, especially since you would not show an equivalent photo if they were white.” They asked the New York Times (NYT) reporter to take down the photo. She said she doesn’t pick the photos. Neither she nor some other foreign correspondents discussing this have acknowledged that showing dead bodies of some races but not others raises real questions of journalistic ethics. There were subsequently angry calls from KOT to deport the NYT reporter. Other foreign correspondents replied that this is an attack of freedom on the press. Let me take a step back here. The NYT is an American paper. American media institutions tend to replicate racial hierarchies of power, because they were founded in a country predicated on racial hierarchies of power. They reflect and perpetuate the society around them. There is lots of evidence across many domains that black people’s lives are valued less than whites in the US. In the media, this shows up in articles about police violence, which use mugshots of black men murdered by police, and professional photos of their killers.

A few weeks back, I was invited to Kitale for an event. I was at Kitale country club where I met two gentlemen, Ken sabwa, the one in the picture and his brother, Sam sabwa. We chatted for a while, had a few drinks, and if it wasn't for the event that took me there, we would have stayed there the whole day. We exchanged contacts promising to meet in Nairobi. Sam called me this morning to inform me that Ken was among the victims of the dusitattack And I still can't believe it. My prayers are with you and your family Sam. I don't know if there is anything I can do to ease your pain, but know I will always remember your brother as the kind cheerful man I met in Kitale. We shall dedicate this Sunday's visit to angelcentrekenya to honour your brothers name and those who lost their lives in this tragedy. May his soul rest in peace brother.😔🙏 samsabwa. prayforkenya

American who survived 9/11 US terror attack killed in Nairobi An American businessman who reportedly survived the 9/11 terror attack in the US is among 14 people killed by terrorists at DusitD2 hotel complex on 14 Riverside Drive in Nairobi. Jason Spindler, (pictured) was a director of a business development firm. The slain American's family said in posts on social media that he was a survivor of the September 11, 2001 terror attack on the World Trade Center in New York City, where he was living and working at the time. The US Department of State confirmed to NBC News that an American citizen was killed in the attack on Tuesday. Officials did not release his identity, but his mother, Sarah Spindler, in a phone interview with NBC News Tuesday night confirmed the American killed was her son, Jason. She said the 40-year-old had been "trying to make positive change in the Third World in emerging markets." "We all miss him so much. And it's so sad that such a bright person is taken away by terrorism," Ms Spindler said. dusitattack westandstrong
