A section of opposition leaders has defended Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho against accusations that he is plotting for the downfall of Deputy President William Ruto. Led by Makadara MP George Aladwa, the leaders asked their Jubilee counterparts to stop undermining the PS.

Detectives from the Special Crimes Unit have recovered an extra Sh2.3 million of the money stolen from the Standard Chartered Bank and G4S in Lang’ata, Nairobi earlier this month. The money was recovered in Machakos over the weekend following a tip off that led to the arrest of three suspects.

 
 

The High Court has directed that Sarah Wairimu, the estranged wife of murdered Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen, will plead to charges on September 26. Justice Jessie Lesiit on Monday postponed the plea taking after it emerged that Ms Kamotho was yet to undergo a mental exam.

 
 

At least 27 people have died after a passenger plane crashed into houses in the city of Goma in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, local officials say. The victims included nine people from the same family who were in one of the houses hit in the Mapendo area.

The small aircraft went down shortly after taking off from the city's airport on Sunday morning. The cause of the crash is still unclear.

The plane was carrying 17 passengers and two crew members, officials say. Air accidents are relatively frequent in DR Congo amid lax safety standards and poor maintenance, and all the country's commercial carriers are banned from operating in the European Union.


What is known about the air disaster?

The Dornier-228 twin-turboprop aircraft - owned by private carrier Busy Bee - crashed about a minute after take-off, a source at Goma airport told the BBC. The plane had been scheduled to fly to Beni, 350km (220 miles) north of Goma.

A witness, Djemo Medar, said he saw the plane "spinning three times in the air and emitting a lot of smoke".



"When the plane crashed many of us rushed there, we know the pilot, his name is Didier; he was shouting 'Help me, help me', but we had no way to get to him because the fire was so powerful," he told Reuters news agency.

North Kivu regional governor Nzanzu Kasivita offered his condolences to the families of survivors.

Panic has gripped the family of a primary school teacher who went missing after allegedly travelling from Homa Bay County to mark this year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations in Nairobi more than two weeks ago. Mr. Moses Odumbe is a teacher at Kogana Primary School in Rachuonyo North Sub-County in Homa Bay County.
