More facts about Kenyan diaspora man killed with his wife in Kenya
Several people in Kenya and the Diaspora were shocked by the deaths of businessman Edward Morema and his wife Mong’ina Morema.
On Tuesday, March 21, the bodies of Edward Morema Nyagechi, 62, and his wife Mong’ina Morema were discovered in their opulent home in Getugi village, Nyamira county.
- Two years ago, Edward Morema had a housewarming for a palatial home he built in Nyamira county.
- During the housewarming, Morema had asked God for more years so they could enjoy living in the mansion.
- Three months ago, the US-based businessman and his wife returned home from the US, only to be killed.
Initial investigations revealed that the couple, who had just returned from the US three months prior, had been brutally murdered by unidentified assailants.
According to authorities, the victims suffered stab wounds to their bodies in addition to being struck on the heads with a blunt object.
Detectives were looking into the deaths, according to Masaba North Police Chief Robert Ndambiri, and the couple’s housekeeper and farmhand were questioned.
It’s very painful to the family. Why do people kill or nothing?” wrote one Kenyan. “Why? Greed is bad,” added another. Following the deaths, a video of Morema asking for long life to enjoy living in his palatial home surfaced online.
“We pray to God to add more days to live in this house. We could die and leave this palatial home behind. We ask God to add us two or three more years so we can enjoy it before we die,” Morema said during the housewarming two years ago. An aerial view of the two-storey mansion depicted its grandiosity. The majestic residence features a black roof and a sizeable compound. The first floor has a large balcony offering sweeping views of the surrounding area.
Two vehicles were seen parked in the sizeable compound surrounded by a hedge. Another house and a gazebo were spotted behind the mansion.
