Kenyan Cop Goes On Shooting Spree After Killing Wife

An AK-47 wielding Kenyan police officer shot dead six people, including his wife, and wounded two others before turning the gun on himself in Nairobi around 3 AM on Tuesday.

The officer first killed his wife in their home, shooting her in the neck with his service rifle before firing indiscriminately at neighbours, the Police Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said on Tuesday.

According to the DCI, three of the young men who were killed by the police officer were mourners who had just attended preparations for a funeral. It added:

After killing the three, the cop then turned his rifle at two Boda Boda (motorcycle taxi) riders, one of whom lost his life while undergoing treatment at the Kenyatta national hospital

Two wounded people were also in critical condition, the DCI noted.

Francis Wahome, the officer in charge of Nairobi’s Dagoretti area, confirmed the incident and the death toll but gave no other details. He said:

We have lost six people all shot by the police officer before he committed suicide.

… We are told that the couple had issues and were quarrelling before.

Angry residents near where the incident took place later set fire to tyres on a road in a protest against the senseless shootings.

Cases of police officers shooting dead their spouses occur frequently in Kenya.

In November this year, another officer opened fire on his colleagues in central Kenya, fatally shooting one in the head before fleeing.

In November 2010, another police officer in a jealous rage shot dead 10 people including two of his colleagues in a rampage through two bars in central Kenya before surrendering to police.

He had tried to kill himself but had run out of ammunition, forcing him to surrender to the police.

Canadian doctor delivers ‘Miracle’ baby on flight

Published

A Canadian doctor has told of her joy after delivering a “Miracle” baby on an overnight flight to Uganda.

Dr Aisha Khatib, a professor at the University of Toronto, was about one hour into her Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Entebbe when the call went out.

A Ugandan migrant worker travelling home from Saudi Arabia was about to deliver her first child.

The baby, early at 35 weeks, was born healthy, and was named Miracle Aisha, after the doctor.

Dr Khatib, bleary-eyed from a gruelling work schedule back in coronavirus-plagued Toronto, was enjoying a well-earned rest on the third leg of her trip.

But she did not hesitate when a voice on the intercom asked if there was a doctor aboard.

“I see a crowd of people gathered around the patient,” Dr Khatib told BBC News.

At this point she was assuming it was a critical situation, like a heart attack.

“As I got closer see this woman lying on the seat with her head toward the aisle and feet towards the window. And the baby was coming out!”

Dr Khatib was helped by two other passengers – an oncology nurse and a paediatrician from Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

The baby was crying “robustly”, she said. Following a quick check, she passed the infant to the paediatrician for a closer inspection.

“I looked at the baby, and she was stable, and I looked at the mom and she was OK,” says Dr Khatib.

“So I was like, ‘Congratulations it’s a girl.’ Then the entire plane started clapping and cheering and was like ‘Oh right, I’m on a plane and everybody is watching this.’”

“WE HAVE FAILED TO SEPARATE THE TWINS” – ZAMBIAN DOCTORS

Zambian Medical Doctors have finally decided that the country’s latest conjoined twins, Joshua and James will not be separated due to the intricate nature of the anticipated operation.

Clinical Care and Diagnostic Services Director, Dr. Alex Makupe has disclosed to Diamond news in an exclusive interview that a team of experts has resolved not to go ahead with the operation to separate the children.

He has explained that carrying out the operation would be devastating to the parents as one child will have to be sacrificed.

Dr. Makupe says in the next few weeks a house will be found for family in Eastern Province where they will be accompanied by a social worker as well as a physio therapist for continued monitoring.

The six months old conjoined twins were born in Eastern Province.
