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



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.

We were not happy anymore – Lilian Muli speaks on split from ex-husband



Days after K24 news anchor Betty Kyallo opened up to her Instagram followers that she is happy that her ex-husband Dennis Okari has moved on, Lilian Muli has taken a cue.

Speaking to Kalekye Mumo, Muli disclosed that her relationship with ex-husband, Moses Njuguna Kanene, came to a slow, grinding halt and they had to go their separate ways.

The Citizen TV anchor narrated that though the relationship was bliss at first, it reached a point where she felt “strangulated.”

She added that they mutually agreed to part ways and still remain friends to date.

I was young, I was a small girl. That seems like a long time ago but it was pretty romantic. He was my friend, he remain my friend to date. He is an extremely romantic gentleman and so he guided me a lot along that process, it is what it is, things didn’t work out. He is a person I respect to date

We were not happy anymore, and we just got to a place where you know we were not friends anymore, and I felt strangulated, I just felt that the Lilian I knew was getting suffocated in this environment and we mutually opted it was not working. We agreed to go separate ways. It is easier that way, there is no unnecessary drama. Once you have a child with someone really that person is your life forever,” Muli told Kalyekye.

Murder most foul: Woman denies killing her ‘mother’



Suspect is accused of stabbing elderly woman 15 times in the neck, chest and stomach

Bernadette Njoki Gachinga, 33, was adopted by Esther Wangari Kanuri at the age of three months after being dumped by her biological mother.

But, on the evening of February 23, 2014, Ms Kanuri was brutally killed by unknown assailants at her home in Kihuyo village, Nyeri town. The slain civil servant’s body was found by her husband, Michael Kanuri, lying in a pool of blood in her adopted daughter’s bedroom.

Ms Njoki turned out to be the prime suspect in the murder. It is alleged that she attacked her foster mother while she was taking tea in her living room and stabbed her more than 15 times in the neck, chest and stomach. She allegedly later dragged the body to her bedroom, locked it from the outside and escaped to Nyeri town.

Ms Kanuri, who was suffering from arthritis, had just arrived home from a church service at Kihuyo Presbyterian Church of East Africa.

Although Ms Njoki has since denied killing her foster mother, the court found that she has a case to answer.

During her defence at the High Court in Nyeri on Thursday, Ms Njoki admitted hating her foster mother. The court was told she made Ms Kanuri’s life a living hell after discovering she was not her biological mother.

Justice Abigail Mshila heard that Ms Njoki was a wild and indisciplined girl since her days in high school and was addicted to drugs like bhang and alcohol.

While being cross-examined by State Counsel Emma Gicheha and lawyer Gitonga Muthee for the deceased’s family, Ms Njoki admitted that she became errant and defiant to her foster mother after completing primary school education in 2001.

“I discovered that she was not my biological parent after snooping into a cabinet in the house that was always locked. I was 14 years then and I told my brother that we are adopted children. I became confused and escaped from home for one month to look for my biological mother but I later returned,” Ms Njoki said.

She admitted harbouring a grudge against Ms Kanuri for reasons she did not disclose. She said she was not bitter although Ms Kanuri had not told her she was adopted.

Ms Njoki is accused of stabbing her foster mother to death following an altercation caused by her indiscipline. The disagreement allegedly arose after Ms Kanuri asked her why she had not reported to her workplace in Nyeri town where she was operating a fruits parlour.

The prosecution told the court Ms Njoki, while in high school, wrote a letter to her foster father telling him how she hated her foster mother.

“Remember I wrote to you an SMS telling you that I hate mum. I was angry. I wish I got to know my real mother,” reads the letter.
