VIDEO: Man, girlfriend charged with killing wife as the devil rears his ugly head again in Kenya

Published

Joseph Kori and Judy Wangui were on Tuesday arraigned before a Kiambu court, facing charges of murder. The man and his girlfriend are accused of conspiring, planning or executing the murder of a 36 year old Mary Wambui Kamangara who was Kori’s wife. Wambui was a daughter to a former Nakuru MP.

Judy Wangui used to work for the couple at a hardware shop in Kahawa West, a successful settlement off the road to Kamiti in Nairobi. It’s during that period that Joseph is suspected to have started his extramarital affair with her.

According to the charge sheet, Judy lured the deceased for a lunch date at Homeland inn along Thika road on Saturday afternoon. At around 5pm, after they had lunch together, Wambui is said to have convinced Wangui to take her to her (Wangui’s) house at Fourways Junction. They drove together in Wambui’s car, a white Mercedes Benz.

Neighbours said Wangui has lived at Fourways, where the monthly rent is about Sh60,000, for two years. Residents said a two-bedroom unit like the one she lives in costs roughly Sh12 million.

On arrival they found Kori sitting comfortably inside Judy’s house, where Wambui saw her husbands photos hanging on the wall. This confirmed her worst fears, that her husband had been having an affair with her former hardware employee.

The furniture in the house also matched that which Wambui had seen on her husband’s mobile phone a while back. “A big fight ensued which lasted till darkness set in. In the end, Wambui was fatally injured

The late Mary Wambui was reported missing , before her body was discovered on Sunday at Courtesy beach within Juja subcounty with a deep cut on one side of her head and multiple bruises on both hands, an indication that she had struggled before she died.

The killers had wrapped her body in a bed sheet before stuffing it in a sack. A taxi driver who had been requested by the two to carry Wambui’s body and dump it (but chickened out), is being sought by the police

Joseph Kori was arrested at the scene where his wife’s body was found on Sunday morning. Police say they saw him walk in as they collected evidence from the dam. Asked why he was there, he claimed he was searching for his wife, who had gone missing the previous night.

He also claimed that he had decided to visit the scene after he saw a post on the Kilimani Mums Facebook page indicating that a woman’s body had been found in the area. After his arrest, he led detectives to Wangui’s house where a search was done.

According to Wangui’s neighbours at Fourways Junction, Joseph Kori was a regular visitor at the estate. They usually saw his car, a Lexus, at the parking lot. The car is now detained at Juja Police Station

Mary’s car, a Mercedes Benz C200 and her phone are still missing and the police were still tracking them when two suspects were presented to Senior Principal Magistrate Stella Atambo. The detectives requested the court to hold Joseph and Judy for fourteen days, to enable them carry out further investigations

The  two suspects are expected to take plea  on 13th February when the case will come up again in court.

Mwangi Mukami: Kenyan man who scored D+ in KCSE earns his 5th degree in US

Published

on

Mwangi Mukami has shared his inspirational story on how he had achieved academic success in the United States (US) years after he was considered a failure by the Kenyan education system.

Mukami scored a D+ in his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams and had no chance of joining any institution of higher learning in the country.

Sharing his story on his Facebook page, he said an opportunity to leave the country for the US restored his dreams of attaining a college or university education.

“Over 20 years ago, Kenya’s education system wrote me off as a failure because I had a D+,” he narrated.

“I remember vividly saying to my peers that I wanted to be a policymaker or an attorney. Their response was a burst of collective laughter and sneer,” he added.

Focused on his goal, Mukami did not waste any time when he arrived in the US. He immediately went back to school to pursue his dreams.

Now aged 36, the young man has recently graduated with his fifth degree from the University of California and hopes he will live long to open doors of opportunities to more D+ students.

“For the misfits, the rejected, and the oppressed,” he said.

He attributed his success to his mother who raised him and his six siblings single-handedly while selling unspecified things at the Kawangware market.

“Congratulations to my mom. The degree is a reflection of her tenacity. I am grateful and honoured to have wonderful brothers and sisters who support and trust my ability to achieve,” he added.

He further noted that he proudly uses his mother’s middle name – Mukami- as his surname because she was his hero

According to Mukami, his mother sacrificed a lot to ensure they got a decent education, had food to eat even during difficult situations and that they had the nest childhood.

Mukami said whatever they lacked in material wealth was compensated by what they possessed in spiritual, mental, and emotional health.

“I was raised in a ten by twelve foot house by a woman who believed I could change the world. And I am still changing the world,” he said.

The 36-year-old went on to reveal that for three years now, he had been providing scholarships and relief grants to children in Kawangware and most recently, in Kibera and Mathare.

TUKO.co.ke previously reported of a young medic who defied all odds to achieve her dream careers just to prove wrong a family friend who discouraged her from studying.

Ifeyinwa Ezeudu is a medical doctor, pharmacists, science laboratory technician, weight management coach, nutrition and lifestyle coach.

Ezeudu said she was discouraged from pursuing her career choices because she was a Muslim girl.

 “After hearing of my situation, an empathetic Human Resource practitioner in a financial institution gave me capital to start this business selling eggs and smokies. In a day, I sell a tray of boiled eggs at Sh600 (Sh20 per egg), making a Sh300 profit. I spend Sh300 on eggs for the next day and use some of the remaining money buy saviets, onions and tomatoes for kachumbari , wrapping papers and tomato sauce. The remainder of the money cannot pay my rent. I have some rent arrears but I spoke to the landlord and he’s understanding- but at the end of the day, he wants money,” he says.

“The far I’ve reached, it’s taken a lot of patience and perseverance. I would like to appeal to anyone with a job to offer me the opportunity. I dream of at least helping my siblings,” concludes Dennis, who has over ten certificates.
