Murder: Kori offered ‘mpango wa kando’ millions to shut up



Mystery surrounds the murder of Mary Wambui Kamangara, the woman whose body was found dumped in a dam in Juja, Kiambu County.

Wambui’s husband, Joseph Kori Karue, and his mpango wa kando, identified as Judy Wangui Mungai, are being held by police over the murder, that is suspected to have been perpetrated at Wangui’s Four Ways Junction apartment along Kiambu Road.

Karue is a loaded ‘tenderpreneur’ whose firm last year won a multi-million-shilling deal with a parastatal, while his late wife, a mother of two, was a businesswoman based in Kahawa West, Nairobi County.

Wambui and Wangui had gone to the former’s house and found Karue in there. An argument between Karue and his wife is said to have ensued.

Sources close to the investigation suspect he might have hit his wife with the butt of his pistol during the commotion.

She reportedly collapsed and died and her body was later dumped in the dam in Juja. Karue apparently told his wife’s parents that Wambui had been kidnapped.

According to police reports, Karue warned his lover – Wangui – against revealing what transpired in her house.

A police source revealed that Wangui “told us that the man promised to give her Sh2 million for her silence over the matter.”

But why did Wangui – who was earlier an employee of Karue and Wambui – agree to take the latter to her house, knowing she was Karue’s side dish and that his photos prominently adorned the walls of her apartment?

Wambui’s family says Karue was in a previous relationship before hooking up with the deceased.

“Before he met my sister, Kori (Karue) was involved with another woman, with whom they have a child,” said Esther Kamangara, the late Wambui’s sister.

Karue and his Wangui are said to have met in Nakuru in 2006 when he operated a poles’ treating plant.

Wangui was a secretary at the plant, which was later closed down, and Karue relocated to Nairobi, where he set up a hardware shop for his wife, with Wangui as a shop attendant.

The Sh15 million tender was approved on July 15, 2018. Florence Wambui who is listed as one of the directors of the firm was non-committal on whether the co-director identified as Joseph Kori Karue, was the same individual implicated in the murder.

“I don’t want to be dragged into that matter,” she curtly replied when we sought clarification from her. The murder of Mary Wambui came two days after the body of Lorraine Kerubo Ogoti arrived in Kenya for burial.

Kerubo was based in Toronto, Canada, where she was allegedly murdered by her lover, Mawlid Hassan, over a suspected love triangle. Hassan later committed suicide at their apartment. Investigations are still ongoing.

DeMathew was left to die by passerby motorists, says witness



The late benga musician, John De’Mathew, could possibly have survived, had motorists heeded calls from a good samaritan to slow down and attend to him.

According to a city doctor who spoke exclusively to Kiss100 FM, he, together with another good samaritan identified as Peter, unsuccessfully tried to wave down cars for help.

The doctor, whose identity has been concealed, disclosed that Mathew was apparently still alive after the accident. He added that he was shocked by the callous nature of Kenyan motorists who all sped off.

“I was driving from behind but upon reaching the accident scene, I stopped after a man (Peter) who was standing next to a small car and a lorry waved at me.

The late benga musician John De’Mathew.

“I helped him stop other vehicles which were coming from behind while he removed the singer from the car. Most motorists refused to stop, thinking we were thugs stopping them,” he revealed.

The doctor further claimed that even after removing the late singer from the wreckage, no motorists wanted to offer him a lift to the hospital.

He stated that they eventually opted to use a matatu to ferry him to the hospital.

“He wasn’t talking but was breathing. His legs were still on the brake pedal and upper body between the two front seats. He was bleeding from the forehead and didn’t utter a word. His eyes were closed,” the doctor narrated.

University of Botswana to offer Brexit course



A course about Brexit, the UK’s plan to leave the European Union, is to be offered as an option by the University of Botswana’s history department.

The course, called Modern Britain, will “study the crisis” as it happens, a notice shared on Twitter said.

Students will, however, not sit for an exam.

Bruce Bennett from the university confirmed to the BBC that the course will be offered.

“[It] is intended to link the present crisis, which is of interest to many people, to the historical background,” he said.

He said that as an elective course students from other departments would be able to take it.

“There has been interest from students from across the university, including of course political science but not limited to them.”

He added that other major events in British history would also be covered.

“This semester the British history course will focus on the Brexit crisis, as it happens, in combination with relevant British history. This historical background includes both relatively recent events such as the Northern Irish Troubles and the Good Friday agreement, and the deeper background.”
