IEBC faces tough questions over voters transfer;The curtain falls on the 12th Parliament before the polls & UDA Gets One Direct Win for This Seat

Good morning,

In less than a month, another shooting incident happened in Embu where a man was on Wednesday, June 8 night shot dead by unknown people in a similar way to that of Samuel Mugo Mugota.

It is now been reported that the victim had been on the radar screen of police detectives.

Dennis Mbae Mutegi, alias Mbuyu, was also battling court cases for drug trafficking, robbery with violence and murder.

Mbae was on his way home in his white Toyota Noah, registration number KCX 559A, when gunmen in a car with no number plates blocked his path around 11 pm at Bonanza, before pumping 20 bullets on him.

Residents said gunshots could be heard three kilometres from the scene of the crime.

On May 16, Samuel Mugo Mugota was killed in a similar way in Mirema drive after he was shot six times and the suspect fled away after boarding a car that was strategically parked to block the victim.
In a similar case like Mbae’s, Mugo ran a thriving drinks-spiking syndicate until he met his death, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) revealed.
Do you think the police could have a hand in the two killings?

The curtain falls on the 12th Parliament before the polls

The National Assembly adjourned sine die (indefinitely, with no set date of resumption) Thursday ahead of the August 9 General Election as MPs in an almost near emotional fashion recounted their time in the 12th Parliament.

The adjournment effectively brings down the curtains on the sixth and last session of the House that was inaugurated on August 31, 2017. The Senate is expected to follow suit next week.

This means that, after today, the House can only convene for a special sitting on the request of the Leader of the Majority to Speaker Justin Muturi if there is a matter that requires the intervention of the House and cannot wait.
