Slain Dutch tycoon Herman Rowenhorst (pictured) had sought for divorce from his wife Riziki Cherono Ali four months to his death.
Fresh details obtained by homicide detectives in statements from two of the slain tycoon’s children aged, 14 and 12 reveal the deceased planned to part ways with his spouse.
The minors disclosed in their statements that their slain father had informed them that he had initiated divorce proceedings against their mother, a development their mother was seriously opposed to.
“My parents were often fighting, and my dad had decided to end the 13-year-old marriage. He told us that he would no longer be living with my mother, but he would continue to take care of us,” reads part of the statement recorded from one of the minors.
Three strange men
The minors further revealed that on the night their father was murdered, their mother had opened the doors for three strange men and led them into the master bedroom before a commotion ensued.
“Our father kept on screaming for help, as we prepared to go to their bedroom, we realised that our bedroom door had been locked from outside and we could not leave the room,” said the minor.
The minors further informed police that when everything went silent, their mother escorted the three men out of the house before they all drove out of the apartments.
Coast regional police commander, Paul Ndambuki said that the two minors had con fessed to detectives the events of the fateful night and that they were closing in on the main suspect in the heinous crime.
“Investigations are at an advanced stage, we are making a breakthrough in the case and soon those involved will be brought to book,” he said.
