Kori dumps Wangui in court

Published

on

Detectives investigating the murder of businesswoman Mary Wambui Kamangara believe that her husband’s ex-mistress, Ms Judy Wangui, plotted the murder, and that she meant to get back at his family after he dumped her.

The widower, Mr Joseph Kori, has recorded a statement with the police supporting the claims, and the State has picked him as a witness as police seek to strengthen the case.

This came even as the prosecution, through State counsel Christine Ndombi, on Tuesday applied to have Ms Wangui and her co-accused, Mr Michael Githae, remanded until the matter is heard and determined, arguing that their release could jeopardise the case.

Ms Wangui and Mr Githae, a car hire dealer, have been charged with killing Ms Kamangara at the former’s residence at Four Ways Junction Estate on the Kiambu-Nairobi Road.

CLOBBERED TO DEATH

They allegedly did this by clobbering her on the head with a pressure cooker before strangling her on the night of January 26/27, 2019.

Her body was found in a dam in Juja, near Courtesy Beach Resort. Detectives have established that Ms Kamangara’s murder could have been part of Ms Wangui’s plot to get back at Mr Kori for ending their relationship.

“That the first accused (Wangui) and the deceased’s husband (Kori) were in a love triangle as at the time of the murder, the first accused had parted ways with Joseph Kori Karue. The first accused was hence targeting him and his family,” detective Oliver Nabonwe told Lady Justice Christine Meoli in a sworn affidavit.

The relationship is said to have lasted about two years. According to sources, Mr Kori met Ms Wangui at a car wash point in Thindigua on Kiambu Road where she hawked snacks and rented her a two-bedroom, Sh60,000 a month apartment at Four Ways Junction.

He also bought her a Mercedes Benz identical to his wife’s, and which is currently the subject of an ownership row after Mr Kori accused her of illegally transferring it to herself when they were both in custody.

The detectives said they had further established that on January 25/26, Mr Wangui stalked Mr Kori’s family at their Safari Park estate home, “but her intentions did not materialise on that day”.

TELEPHONE LOG DATA

They added that this is supported by Mr Wangui’s telephone log data, Mr Kori’s statement, and security guards at Safari Park Estate.

Asking the court to deny them bond, Ms Ndombi relied on a sworn affidavit by detective Nabonwe from the homicide section, which indicated that Ms Wangui and Mr Githae could abscond.

“The accused persons have been charged with a serious offence and if found guilty, they will be sentenced to death, and therefore there is more probability and incentive for them to abscond … I submit that the evidence gathered against the first and second accused persons is overwhelming and justifiable to subject them to pretrial detention as the evidence is strong,” the affidavit reads.

But the assertions we opposed by the accused’s lawyers, led by Cliff Ombeta and Dorine Kalii.

Police noted that the murder took place at Ms Wangui’s residence, where there was a bloodstained knife, bloodstained clothes and swabs on the floor, as well as the clothes used to wrap the body.

Ezekiel Mutua opens up on medical condition that has given him sleepless nights

Published

on

Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua on Monday opened up about a heart condition that has been giving him sleepless nights.

Through a post on Facebook, Mutua stated that last week he checked into hospital for a checkup but doctors told him that he had a serious condition and needed to see a cardiologist.

“My BP was 157/86 against the normal of less than 120/80. My heart rate was 115 beats per minute against the normal of 60-80.

“A flurry of tests would follow and the medical team attending to me recommended admission and a subsequent heart operation.

“It was the scariest news I had ever received,” he said. Adding that he thought about his family and all those who depended on him.

He, however, vowed to remain strong but also sought a second opinion from medical professionals.

One of his friends who happens to be a doctor referred him to Dr Saleem Bagha, a Consultant Physician/Cardiologist at the Aga Khan University Hospital Doctor’s Plaza.

“I gave him a call and he asked me to go over to his clinic right away. A man of impeccable integrity and professionalism, Dr. Bagha has managed me in a way that I know God is using him. He has restored hope where others planted fear.

“He has put professionalism before money and with his calm and assuring demeanour has been used by God to save my life. I am grateful to have a second chance.

“This is the kind of experience that makes one to have an introspection on what truly matters in life,” wrote Mutua.

He also thanked all those who supported him through prayers and assured the public that he is stable and Dr Bagha is taking good care of him.

“People like Dr. Bagha represent the best of humanity. They use their expertise to give hope and not fear. I am grateful to have ended up in his hands.

“I am being attended to as an outpatient and in two days there’s so much change. Dr. Bagha has even become a family friend, the kind you want to keep for life. May God bless him for me!” he said.

Eagle-eyed Kenyan has noted something interesting about this picture

Published

on

A sharp-sighted Kenyan on social media has noted something interesting about a picture from the awkward moment DP William Ruto met his archrivals ODM leader Raila Odinga and Industrialisation CS Peter Munya.

The three met on Monday during the official opening of the Kenya Trade Week and Expo 2019, Kenyatta International Convention Centre, Nairobi County.

Pictures shared on Dr Ruto’s social media show him sandwiched between Mr Odinga and Mr Munya.

The DP has publicly accused Mr Odinga of seeking to wreck Jubilee Party and Mr Munya of planning to assassinate him.

A video from the event shows the DP chatting with Mr Odinga and the CS at different times.

But what has caught the eye of one social media user, John Riaga was the number of water bottles placed in front of each leader.

In the pecking order, DP Ruto would ideally be the most senior leader on the table. But while Mr Odinga had three bottles of water, Dr Ruto has two and CS Munya one.

Mr Riaga shared his observation on his Facebook.

It attracted various comments from his friends.

Edward Ochieng said: “Donge I wish Kenyans could be creative in matters of development like in social media. We could have joined the league of G8 countries.”

Okumu Kennedy noted: “Ruto had the longest day sitting between Aman he attacks daily and another he accused of planning to kill him or assassinate him.”

Sharon Gerald quipped: “Ahahahahaha… Kumbe it’s that serious?! Mpaka maji?!”

Ken Arek said: “A bottle of water, two bottles of water and three bottles of water. Sasa wewe.”

Absalom Ochuka added: “Eyiii. Un keen to details…”

Bongo actress ‘makes it rain’ at media briefing – VIDEO

Published

on

Popular bongo actress Irene Uwoya on Monday caused a stampede at a media briefing in Dar es Salaam by bribing journalists with a rain of money.

Uwoya, flanked by other top bongo actors walked in late for the press conference at Hyatt Regency DSM.

She had convened the media briefing  to make an announcement on the launch of a new Tanzania movie service called Swahiliflix,  a new channel that intends to market and sell bongo movies online.

The official launch of the Swahiliflix is set for August 31 at Mlimani City Plaza in Dar es Salaam.

“Tarehe 31 ni siku ya kumbukumbu kwa wasanii sisi bongo movie, haijawahi kutokea hiyo kitu itakayotikea Mlimani City itaweka historia, itakuwa ni red carpet ya funga mwaka. Kwa hiyo ndugu zetu waandishi mjipange hata kwenye kuvaa mjipange. Msituangushe sasa mje masuti nini msije kama hivi tulivyozoea,” Uwoya urged them.

Uwoya also apologized to the journalists for keeping them waiting.

And as she stood to leave, Uwoya reached out in her hand bag, pulled out a bundle of cash and started throwing it towards the journalists.

She said its was a small incentive to appreciate their support.

“Na nisiwachoshe sana nimewaweka muda mrefu, swahiliflix ni mambo moto lazima tusalimiane na ndugu zetu waandishi wa habari, nawatuza na kitu kidogo.”
