The Orange Democratic Movement Scandinavia sends condolences to the family of the late Hon Jeremiah Nyagah who passed away today at Aga khan Hospital in Nairobi. The late Nyaga, who was 88 years old, died after a short illness. The late Nyagah is an independence veteran who entered pre-independence Legislative Council in 1958 to represent what is today known as Nyeri, Embu, Kirinyaga, Mbeere, Muranga and Maragwa districts.
The late Nyaga retired from politics in in 1992 and leaves behind two sons (who have taken his political line) among other children. Norman Nyagah, the late Nyagah’s second born took over from him as Gachoka MP but later moved to Kamukunji constituency to pursue his political career. At Gachoka, Norman was replaced by his elder brother Joseph Nyagah who originally contested the seat on a KANU ticket and successfully defended it in 2002 on a Narc ticket. He however lost it in 2007 on an ODM ticket.
He is also survived by several grandchildren including Jeremiah Nyagah based in the United States and who has been in touch with KSB for a Magazine project he is currently running. The late Nyagah practiced politics for 35 years.
Through its Vice chairperson, Mr. Martin Ngatia, ODM-Scandinavia said that Kenya has lost a gallant freedom fighter who will for ever be remembered for his dedication and commitment to Kenya’s liberation struggle.
A Kenyan National is facing deportation from Sweden after he was found guilty of several unspecified crimes. The Kenyan has been to Swedish prison before while he has also faced an assortment of charges including assault of a Swedish woman. Details of the case are still scanty and KISS agents are working on the case.
A source told KSB that the Kenyan has put a case against his deportation arguing that he is a father to child resident in Sweden. The Swedish law stipulates that children have must have access to their parents under specified circumstances.
However, in cases where it has been demonstrated that a suspect is a notorious drug peddler or a repeated offender in certain categories of criminal activities, an immigrant could be deported to his/her home country without the “Children’s factor” being put into consideration. KSB is following the case.
