How I helped mistress dump wife’s dead body, man confesses to role in Wambui murder

Car-hire operator claims Wangui killed Wambui and hired him to help her dispose of the body

Detectives believe they are on the trail of a complex tale of money, love, blackmail and murder as they try to piece together the last moments of Mary Wambui Kamangara, the businesswoman whose lifeless body was retrieved from a dam nearly two weeks ago.

This follows the interrogation of Michael Githae Mathenge, a car-hire services operator, who yesterday led police to a thicket in Ruiru where evidence key to resolving the mysterious death of Ms Kamangara was recovered.

Ms Kamangara was killed in the house of her husband Joseph Kori Karue’s mistress, Judy Wangui Mungai, on Saturday January 26 under circumstances that are yet to be fully established. Detectives initially went with the lead given by Ms Mungai that she and Mr Karue were at the scene of the murder. Later, detectives removed Mr Karue from the scene without exonerating him following their tracking of his phone signal and vehicle.

Mr Mathenge also appeared to remove Mr Karue from the scene during interrogation in custody after he was arrested on Monday. Basing his narration on what Ms Mungai also apparently told him, Mr Mathenge said Ms Mungai killed Ms Kamangara by hitting her on the forehead with a pressure cooker.

This is in line with post mortem findings, seen by Nation, that Ms Kamangara’s was hit with a blunt object nine times before being suffocated. She died of brain concussion, the report concluded, with the skull having been crushed by between two and seven centimetres. This contrasts sharply with the version Ms Wangui earlier gave the police suggesting that Mr Karue hit his wife with the butt of his gun.

Detectives are treating Mr Mathenge’s testimony with suspicion as he also sought to extricate him from blame, saying Ms Mungai blackmailed him into helping her dispose of the body from her apartment at Fourways Junction Estate.

Ms Mungai had earlier told detectives that after Mr Karue killed his wife, he gave her Sh2 million to buy her silence. Detectives are now grappling with which version of the events, both told by Ms Mungai to different people in different circumstances, comes close to unravelling what happened that night.

Yesterday, Mr Mathenge led detectives to a thicket in Ruiru where he and Ms Mungai dumped the items used to dispose of the body. The clothes used to wrap the body in and a baby seat were recovered from the scene.

Missing, however, was the pressure cooker and a carpet that Mr Mathenge told police was spread on the back seat of the deceased’s Mercedes car where the body was laid on the way to disposal. In what would be an indictment of the lax manning of road blocks, Mr Mathenge told detectives they passed a police check at Kamiti Corner and they were waved on with only insurance being checked.

According to Mr Mathenge, police said, he went to Ms Mungai’s residence at Fourways Junction at 00:07 on her invitation, almost six hours after Ms Mungai and the deceased arrived there and started arguing over the love triangle involving Mr Karue.

Ms Wambui was apparently bitter after she found her husband’s photos hanging on the wall in the house with furnishings identical to those in their family home at Safari Park Gardens Estate.

A detective privy to the investigations said Ms Wambui reportedly demanded that Ms

Mungai surrenders the logbook of her car — a Mercedez Benz identical to hers — saying she had heard her husband bought her the car.

A fight ensued and a knife that the two wrestled over was among the items recovered at the thicket around the Tatu City area. Police have taken the knife together with other items for forensic examination.

It is then that Ms Mungai, according to Mr Mathenge, rushed to the kitchen and picked a pressure cooker which she hit the deceased with on the head before strangling her with her hands.

She then took bed sheets and covers, wrapped the body and placed it inside the kitchen. Police suspect this may have happened at 20:20 hrs.

According to the CCTV footage retrieved from Fourways Junction, Ms Mungai left the estate at 21:54 using Ms Wambui’s car to Homeland Inn where the two women had earlier revelled in the afternoon.

According to police sources she wanted to pick a Toyota Allion, registration number KCE which had been hired out by Mr Mathenge and which she had left there as Ms Kamangara drove her to Fourways Junction. However, security guards declined to allow her to leave with the car because she did not have a gate pass.

“She parked the Mercedes car behind Homeland Inn and used a taxi to return to Fourways Junction where she arrived at 23:00 hours,” a detective told Saturday Nation yesterday.

It was around that time she is reported to have called Mr Mathenge to her residence. He told detectives that Ms Mungai had called him earlier in the day promising him some work later in the night.

Mr Mathenge, who owns a car hire company, drove to Ms Mungai’s residence at 00:07 hrs using a Toyota Noah, registration series KCK.

The vehicle had been missing since before it was driven to Juja police station by someone who had hired it after learning it was being looked for by the police.

Driving in the Toyota Noah, the two returned to Homeland Inn but the security guards stood their ground. Ms Mungai picked the deceased‘s car and they both returned to Fourways at 01:28 hrs with the two cars. By this time, the two, according to Mr Githae’s account to police, had agreed on where the body would be disposed of and how they would ferry it.

“The Mercedes Benz was driven near the apartment stairs and, according to what Mr Mathenge has said, they both carried the body from the kitchen and placed it in the back,” a detective said yesterday.

A baby seat fixed at the back seat of Ms Mungai’s car was removed and placed at the passenger’s seat next to the driver to accommodate the body.

Using the Kiambu-Kamiti-Ruiru Road the two cars followed each other and at a roadblock at the Kamiti road junction, Mr Mathenge’s car was searched but not Ms Mungai’s.

Mr Mathenge said they drove to Mugutha, where the body was found on Sunday, January 27. Ms Mungai contemplated plunging the car with the body to the dam but later changed her mind.

While on their way back, they stopped at Gitambaya between Ruiru and Kiambu where, according to Mr Mathenge, Ms Mungai threw away the murder weapon, the beddings which had been used to wrap the body and the baby’s seat in a thicket.

They then proceeded to wards Githunguri through the Kirigit-Riabai Road where, along the way, they threw away a blood-stained carpet before proceeding to Kwa-Maiko Trading Centre where they abandoned the deceased’s car which was recovered two days later.

on

BY KAMNAO ANTHONY

KEMEN Summit 2019 and dinner will take place in Atlanta Georgia on June 29, 2019 starting with Workshop and Networking from 10.00 A.M. to 1.P.M.

This is a special rare occasion to brush shoulders with a diverse group of visionary Diaspora leaders chosen from business, Mentorship, Financial guidance, Literacy, Motivation, Immigration experts, Education, Health, Wellness and many other key speakers with a wide range of topics.

These are men who clearly understand that change and effective progress are only possible with a good vision, determination and ambition,.. therefore your actions and attendance counts greatly as you may be impacted and be part of that change.

In the evening, the program continues starting from 4 P.M. to 11 P.M.

There will be Panel discussions, various speakers, formal dinner and ending with KEMEN awards.

We need you to be the architects of a sustainable future and as Diaspora men that are looked upon as men of impact in all fields, a large representation will make the occasion to arouse the much needed awareness that can make this noble movement a force to reckon with.

KEMEN aims at empowering men to believe in themselves equip them with tools of knowledge through workshops and conferences to enable them attain the grandest height possible.
Men empowerment is the core to sustainable development, wellness, stability, and progressive societies anywhere in the world and as such KEMEN are on track.

Women are now breaking the glass ceiling and as the number increase, men though not competing, should be on the forefront in welcoming them to a world they have already dominated.
The only way to do that, is to remain on top and empower more and more men so that their role as head of households cannot be shaken or taken for granted.

We need all men to work together to pursue a sustainable path that leads to economic growth of the communities that we reside in here in America and still, even extend the same to our motherland.
While doing so, there are many challenges as we have to be the custodian of social justice, economic, health, education, wellness and even political stewardship.

We live in volatile times and hence we should always be on top to make great advances towards eradicating poverty, ignorance, corruption, moral decay and diseases as these are the ills of any society, and the same can only be achieved if we work together as a team.

We all the same must be aware that inequality persists but that can be narrowed to prevent it’s growth.
Real impact presents many challenges but as a united front, we are confident that we can meet them to yield change and the much needed progress.

Most of us grew up in a country that had many problems ranging from unable to get clean water, education to even starvation hence the need to make sure that those issues are addressed and if possible show our leaders back home how it can be achieved.

We live in a developed nation where we see things done in a more perfect way and as Diaspora men that are looked upon, we owe a duty to our children so that they may never go through some of the injustices we had to go through.
When we formed KEMEN we were aware that change does not simply happen by itself for the same has to be pursued with vigor and by all in society.

We hold family conference calls and also conference calls which are not limited to men as ladies also join us to discuss diversified issues.

We in KEMEN will not accept an aircraft that only allow a few to board while leaving the rest behind and that is why we are appealing to all to join our movement and act as ambassadors for the common good to encourage others to join for that is the morally correct thing to do.

It is the smart choice to do to avoid being left behind in this sustainable journey that we all need to take as it is in everybody’s best advantage and interest.
We all know that people in the Diaspora are busy and hence it may somehow demand long-term sacrifice but in the end it will bear fruits.

Everyone therefore has a role to play in empowering men and bring Diaspora men to the table as key partners and to do that, it embodies the spirit of shared responsibility that is essential for achieving a better world.
During the 2019 KEMEN Summit in Atlanta successful businessmen will deliver speeches of great topics that can have a great impact in your life so do not miss this great chance.

We will also honor such men and others nominated in order for them to continue impacting and empowering men in the Diaspora and beyond.
KEMEN will later diversify and touch other areas that can affect the empowerment of men such as Human rights abuses, poor working conditions, health, immigration, discrimination, and even corruption and decision making to determine best suited leaders back home.

We will do that as we strongly feel that the mentioned issues can affect both our long-term investments and growth prospects.
All participants are requested to get involved in KEMEN agenda and also consider how you can use your expertise and resources to help promote and impact all members that have joined and will continue joining.
We need you to advance innovations and forge collaborations with others that have already made great impacts on some of the toughest common issues we face.

KEMEN is firmly committed to the power of partnerships, working with businessmen, scholars, Health experts, Tax experts, immigration lawyers, insurance, Religious men, talented men and women and in short all key stakeholders to enhance progress on all our objectives.

The immediate challenge is achieving the required impact to show a total change that will flow to all our members may it be financial, wellness, benevolence benefits but at this stage we all can boast that we have made great progress.

Much has been achieved since inception as we have held several successful meetings, direct conference talks, and social gathering all with the purpose of impacting men and not leaving behind our women in the Diaspora.
Even though our ladies have been identified as a strategic player in reaching some of our goals, there has been no clear role for combined business in our objectives but where man succeeds, the woman will always be there and with that in mind KEMEN has a UNIVERSAL agenda.

We do hope that after the summit, there will be urgent actions towards a new dynamic movement to push forward our set up goals.
We will need your support though and your attendance, mentorship and participation will be greatly appreciated as we move forward from summit holders to an all financially stable action group that can effectively realize our set up goals.

In KEMEN we will connect the dots in the ever-growing field of responsible business initiatives, Wellness while impacting our men.
We therefore appeal to all to work together on an entirely new gigantic scale – collaborating and co-investing, share risks, realize opportunities by networking here in America and later globally to engage in business by simply using the potentials God has given us.

We have seen how powerful such collaborative efforts can achieve great things and ours is just the beginning and sky is the limit statement is just an understatement for we can go beyond.
KEMEN has helped generate a major shift in Diaspora mindset from the time it was initiated for as of today our members of great impact are now becoming role models of a better world.

Help us to respond to the urgency of our many Diaspora challenges to build a better tomorrow that will be of great impact to our children that we are raising here and the same to be extended to our brothers and sisters back home.

Why Mututho wants alcohol prices reduced

Published

on

Former National Campaign against Drug Abuse (Nacada) Chairman John Mututho wants the prices of alcohol reduced.

According to Mututho, the increase in the price of alcohol in the 2019/20 budget will promote the production of cheap illicit brew.

CHEAP LIQUOR

Mututho wants the government to lower taxes imposed on approved alcoholic drinks which will make it affordable for the common mwananchi, hence reduce the consumption of cheap liquor which pose health hazard.

While addressing journalists in Nakuru, Mututho pointed out that cheap liquor has had negative impact on the general population and the increase in the price will only worsen the situation.

He has called upon the National Treasury Cabinet Secretray, Henry Rotich, and other stakeholders in the industry to work together to ensure the prices remain normal for the sake of saving lives of consumers.

UNSAFE BREWS

“The new policy will promote the use of unsafe traditional brews and development of harmful counterfeits. I totally disagree with the move to increase duty on alcohol,” The Standard quoted Mututho.

Among the highlights on the 2019/20 budget that will cost the country Sh 3.02 trillion is the increase on betting tax, boda boda insurance and alcohol prices.
