Divers recover body of a Kenyan man who fell in Sudbury River
Report from FRAMINGHAM,Massachusetts says that Divers have recovered the body of a Kenyan man who fell into the frigid Sudbury River from the nearby Massachusetts Turnpike.
A spokesman for Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone said Monday the remains of Samuel Githiabii were found about a quarter mile from where he fell into the river.
Corey Welford says it appears the 30-year-old man had pulled over due to an undisclosed medical problem that he was experiencing Sunday night.
His vehicle hit the guardrail before he got out of the car and fell into the river.
Other passengers were in the car. Investigators don’t believe foul play was involved.

A Foreign Policy Series Event

AFRICOM: Securing Peace and Advancing Security?

The new United States African Command, AFRICOM, was created on February 6, 2007 to address “the emerging strategic importance of Africa, …recognizing that peace and stability on the continent impacts not only Africans, but the interests of the US and international community as well.” Despite these goals, the US Department of Defense has been criticized for overstepping its boundaries by combining its military operations with diplomatic elements. Others hold that the security of many African states may be highly dependent on AFRICOM. Please join the Council and our panelists to discuss AFRICOM’s implications for the African continent.

Kenyan Man Shot, Killed In Essex
POSTED: 6:42 am EST March 4, 2008
A man was shot and killed in an apartment complex parking lot in Essex around 1 a.m. Tuesday.
Joram Shijenje, 34, died in the shooting, according to Baltimore County Police.
Authorities said they responded to the 1100 block of Tace Drive after they received calls from people who heard shots fired in the area.


A student with three jobs, Kenyan immigrant Joram Shijenje was searching for the American dream. But his life ended Tuesday morning with a bullet. Shijenje was murdered in front of his own home
He had just gotten off from work and was talking to his brother on a cell phone as he exited his car. “Then all of a sudden..hello?!…I couldn’t get hold of him.”

Joram’s brother Gilbert Imbayi heard a noise on the other end, but nothing from Joram. Just minutes later a friend called with the horrifying news—his brother was dead. Cpl. Mike Hill of the Baltimore County Police Department says they are searching for clues.

“Right now, no info, or motive for why anyone would have shot this man.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP.

Shijenje was pronounced dead at the scene.


We regret to announce the untimely death of our beloved brother Mr Joram Shejenje. Joram died in the early morning of 03/04/2008 in the hands of assassins while on his way home from work.
Until his death, Joram lived in Baltimore, MD with his younger brother Gilbert. While alive, Joram was a hard working young man, easy going and dedicated to the works of God. He believed in the law of “Love thy neighbour as you love thy self.” A cheerful giver who didn’t hesitate to help people in need.
Family and friends are meeting daily at 6pm for prayers and funeral arrangements at the late Joram’s home at 1118 Tace Dr, APT 2A, Essex, MD 21221. For more information please contact:

He who dwells in the secret place of the almighty shall abide under the shaddow of the almighty..Ps 91:1
Dear folks,
Both Kenyans and you dear international friends have prayed and cared about the horrible situation in Kenya
Now we see a ray of hope but let us not stop praying and hoping
May the Lord reward you.
May the Lord remember you in your hour of need and be merciful to you
May His face shine upon you and give you peace
Never under estimate the power of prayer
This word of wisdom fits us as kenyans
“If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging”
It is time to stop digging deep holes and trenches and start building the nation,Keep justice (Not Just Us) for all and love one another
Let us give our future generations hope.

Now let’s start having a dialogue of reconstruction
Dear Kenyans:
I have one question to ask you all. Now that both PNU and ODM have come to a consensus that
Kenya is ours (you and me) and that it must not be destroyed by their voluminous rage, how can
we as Kenyans abroad support Kibaki and Raila in the new mission to spring Kenya back to the
track of achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)? Please now let’s start having a
dialogue of reconstruction. Any ideas are welcome. These goals are:
1. Reduce by half the proportion of people living on less than a dollar a day.
2. Ensure that all boys and girls complete a full course of primary schooling.
3. Eliminate gender disparity in primary and secondary education preferably by 2005, and at all
levels by 2015.
4. Reduce by two thirds the mortality rate among children under five.
5. Halt and begin to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS.
6. Reduce by half the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water.
7. Achieve significant improvement in lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers, by 2020.
8. Develop further an open trading and financial system that is rule-based, predictable and
non-discriminatory, includes a commitment to good governance, development and poverty reduction—
nationally and internationally.

Simon Peter Karanja (Kijana Wa Yesu)
Desperate call for Help for Simon Peter Karanja (Kijana Wa Yesu)
Many of you will remember our Brother and Minister Simon Peter Karanja
popularly known as Kijana Wa Yesu. He was the founder of Repentance
Ministry in the early 1970s and thereafter he founded other ministries.
This man in is early years was an icon of the revival that swept across
our country. He was a great source of encouragement to many of us who were
growing up in the Lord at that time. The anointing of God upon his life
changed many of us and challenged us to love the Lord even more.
Around year 2000, Simon was diagnosed with diabetes. It has become really
very bad and recently it brought Glaucoma which has contributed to the
loosing of his sight in both eyes. He cannot drive, he cannot write or
read, and he cannot even use his phone as he cannot read any phone number.
He cannot live by himself and is being housed by a good Samaritan. His
situation is critical.
I spoke to him this evening and from the sound of his voice, Simon is dire
need of our prayers and support. His house rent, car payments among other
bills are all in arrears. His only daughter here is in school in Arizona.
I¢m writing to you this e-mail on a compassionate basis on behalf of our
brother Simon. We need to help him where we can while he is alive. We may
not and cannot alleviate all his sufferings and needs but we can make a
small difference and bring a smile in his heart in the midst of all his
sufferings. Please if you feel compassionate enough to make a difference,
let me know and will give you his phone number to call him directly.
Please remember Simon in your prayers and lets help in one way or another.
Please pass this e-mail to many brethren who may know Simon Peter Karanja.
Pastor Jackson Kingori





Following the death the Brother Samuel Karanja, Pastor Geoffrey Gatambia’s brother-in-law in Boston USA, family friends, and sympathizers are meeting for prayers on Friday March 28, 2008 at Pastor Gatambia’s house; 705 Castlewood Place, Upper Marlboro, MD 20774.
