Two Kenyans killed, one injured in London
A man convicted over the death of a Matalan store manager in east London was on police bail at the time of the killing. Anthony Maina, 20, was found guilty of manslaughter after Jamie Simpson was stabbed during a failed robbery at the Hackney store in March 2008. Maina, of Canning Town, was bailed after Rizwan Darbar, 17, was stabbed in West Ham during a mobile phone robbery. He was later convicted of Mr Darbar’s murder and jailed for life. The Old Bailey jury which heard the Matalan case was not told Maina had been arrested shortly after Rizwan’s murder in October 2007, but released on police bail due to lack of evidence. In the ensuing 15 months Maina was involved in Mr Simpson’s killing, was caught with a knife, cannabis, crack cocaine and heroin, before finally being charged in January last year with Mr Darbar’s murder. Last August he was jailed for life with a minimum term of 14 years for Rizwan’s murder. Maina will be sentenced in March for the manslaughter of Mr Simpson in the Matalan raid Kobina Essel, 19, from east London was found guilty of Mr Simpson’s murder. Simeon Jumah, Maina, and 17-year-old Randy Osei-Owusu, who was named on Tuesday after the Judge Martin Stephens lifted reporting restrictions, were convicted of manslaughter. The judge also lifted a reporting restriction on Maina’s criminal history when prosecutors decided not to press for a retrial after jurors were unable to agree on a murder charge against Maina, Jumah, and Osei-Owusu.
He left with a second guard as Mr Simpson cashed up. The robbers hid in the staircase for almost an hour, their shadowy movements caught on camera, while Mr Simpson emptied all the tills on both floors. As he exited the cash office shortly before 8pm, carrying only a set of keys, Essel left his hiding place and approached him on the shop floor. The store’s cameras captured the six-second confrontation during which 19-stone Mr Simpson was stabbed three times in the back and neck and left for dead as the robbers fled empty handed through a fire escape. Essel said Jumah had told him to bring his ‘ting’ for the robbery, so he armed himself with a 10in kitchen knife, which he later discarded and has never been found. Mr Simpson, clutching his neck, tried to raise the alarm with shop assistants who were working nearby. Staff desperately grabbed clothes and towels from shop rails and attempted to staunch the bleeding. Police and ambulances arrived just after 8pm, shortly before a doctor in an air ambulance helicopter, but Mr Simpson’s life could not be saved.

TWO teenagers were remanded in custody today after they were charged with the murder of an A-level student who was stabbed to death in a row over a mobile phone.
Rizwan Darbar, 17, was knifed in West Ham Park, east London, in October 2007 as he listened to music with two friends.
The teenager was attacked after his friends were approached by a gang who demanded they hand over a mobile phone.
Rizwan, of Derby Road, Plaistow, was rushed to Newham General Hospital with stab wounds to his abdomen but died later that day after suffering a cardiac arrest.
Kirkland Gayle, 19, of Plaistow Road, Plaistow and Anthony Maina, 19, of Tollgate Road, East Ham were due to appear at Stratford Magistrates’ Court this morning.
The pair were remanded in custody and will now appear at the same court on Monday.
A third teenager, Amos Wahome, 18, of Cridland Street, West Ham appeared in court last year charged with the same offence.
He remains in custody.

Gravedigger-A Sad video from our beloved country
After Fred and Milton completed the hospital, with the help of well wishers and friends, they realised that they needed to keep it open, and created the Lwala Community Alliance to continue funding the initial donation.
A documentary about their straggles to raise $150,000 to build the clinic – while attending school full-time and coping with their parents’ deaths – will soon be screened at universities across the country.
“It’s not common to have a couple of village boys come to the U.S. and advocate for a clinic to be built in their country,” said Barak Bruerd, program director of Blood:Water Mission, a Nashville-based nonprofit that has contributed to the clinic. “The fact that they were able to bring so much support to their community is amazing.”
As a child, he remembers seeing a friend’s mother taken away in a wheelbarrow during a difficult labor. Neighbors pushed her for 45 minutes before she died.
The image stuck with him. His father, high school chemistry teacher Erastus Ochieng’, emphasized the need for health care closer to the community. It was his dream to see a clinic in Lwala, a village of about 1,500 people in southwestern Kenya.
This is what gives me motivation- big people doing big things!
