Wambui suffered an extremely painful death, she took nine killer blows to the head, was suffocated: AUTOPSY 

Published

Ms Mary Wambui suffered an extremely painful death. And whoever killed her must have been seething with rage. What was supposed to be a relaxed afternoon treat with friends turned gory and tragic.

She was hit multiple times on the head and when the assailants discovered she was not dead, they suffocated her.

A post-mortem examination on the 39-year-old mother of two shows the killers hit her nine times, inflicting serious injuries that contributed to her death.

This comes as the family held a meeting in Nairobi to decide whether her remains should be interred in Mweiga, Nyeri, where she was married, or Nakuru, her birthplace.

The Saturday Nation gathered that a majority of the members favoured Mweiga, informed by the need to ensure the children are not disinherited.

Ms Wambui, who police suspect was murdered in a love triangle, was last seen alive on January 26 at Homeland Inn, where she had a meal with two men and Ms Judy Wangui Mungai, 36, who is in police custody over the matter.

The post-mortem report, released seven days after her body was found at a dam in Mugutha, Juja, further revealed that she had a deep cut in one side of her forehead, an injury believed to have been inflicted by the back of a gun.

According to the report, the gun is the same weapon that was also used to hit her head, leading to the injuries that were still visible when her body was discovered at the dam.

The post-mortem was conducted at the Kenyatta University funeral home on Tuesday this week by government pathologist Dr Peter Ndegwa in the presence of a team of investigators, led by Mr Cornelius Arwasa, and relatives of the deceased.

Dr Ndegwa declined to speak to the media, citing confidentiality for the family that was mourning the death of a mother whom they have so far eulogised as “good hearted and understanding”.

Juja police boss Simon Thirikwa said investigations into the killing were still underway.

“For now, all I can tell you is the investigating teams from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations are working round the clock to ensure they complete the investigations,” said Mr Thirikwa.

By Friday evening homicide detectives, led by Mr Araswa, were trying to piece together information to uncover the motive for the crime.

It has also emerged Joseph Kori Karue, Ms Wambui’s husband, who is in police custody, was a licensed gun owner and detectives are trying to establish whether it was his weapon that was used to end the life of Ms Wambui.

The detectives were reading fingerprint details captured on Ms Wambui’s car that was on Thursday found abandoned at Kwa Maiko trading centre in Githunguri, Kiambu County.

Gruesome murder

The car is currently held at Ngewa Police Station and is believed to have been used to ferry the body from where she was murdered to the dam where her body was discovered.

A source privy to the investigations yesterday told the Saturday Nation that Ms Wangui and Mr Kori will be taken to various scenes of the crime where they will be asked to provide information in relation to the gruesome murder.

The source, who spoke in confidence, also said police have crucial leads that will help them get hold of the two men who were last seen with Ms Wambui at Homeland Inn and were captured by CCTV cameras.

“We are certain that from the information we have so far gathered the two men in question were directly involved in the murder,” said the source.

The two suspects will remain in police custody until February 19, when they will return to court.

They were arrested after police discovered blood-stained clothes in Ms Wangui’s house located at Fourways estate on Kiambu Road.

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

Published

on

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’

Published

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.
