New twist in the murder of Mary Wambui

New discovery by police throws case wide open

Murdered woman Mary Wambui

Detectives investigating the murder of Mary Wambui claimed that Joseph Kori was not present on the day his wife was murdered.

A detective who spoke to Nation, stated that preliminary investigations showed that Kori was in Ngong on the day Wambui was murdered.

“Based on his mobile phone records and his car tracking device, he (Kori) was in Ngong on the day of the murder and left at 9pm, when he drove back to Roysambu.


“He was never at Fourways junction,” stated the detective.

DCIO Obed Kiio, who spoke to the media house at Juja Police Station, affirmed that call data obtained from Safaricom indicated that Kori, who is one of the main suspects in the case, was not at the scene.

Further investigations stated that a review of the CCTV footage at Fourways showed that the car of husband to the deceased was nowhere in the residence.

However, at 9pm, it was reported that Kori had called his parents in Nyeri County after he arrived in Roysambu, to inform them that his wife was missing.

The new development on the other hand contradicts the information given by Judy Wangui who stated that Kori was present at the murder scene.


Wangui alleged that she had been offered Sh2million by the businessman to keep quiet over the brutal murder.

Key arrest made

On Monday, the law enforcers arrested a taxi driver who was believed to have aided Kori and Judy Wangui, his girlfriend, to transport the dead body of the Kiambu businesswoman.

The motorist whose identity was withheld, had recorded a statement and was detained in order to be arraigned in court.


The arrest of the driver had led to the discovery of bloodstained clothes and blood swabs that are believed to belong to the late Wambui.
