Detectives reveal how tycoon Joseph Kori worked with mpango wa kando to kill his wife Mary Wambui

Detectives have accused a Nairobi tycoon Joseph Kori of working with a woman he was having an affair with, to kill his wife Mary Wambui.

Wambui was killed on Saturday in what detectives believe was a love triangle turned tragic involving her husband and her former employee, Judy Wangui.

The business lady run a busy hardware where she had employed Wangui before she and Kori started having an illicit affair.

The deceased was not aware but had suspected her husband to be having an affair with the former employee.

On Saturday, Wangui knocked on Wambui’s marital home in Garden Estate, she was asking the whereabouts of Kori.

Wambui did not raise alarm but was nice to her, despite her suspicions on the affair.

Both Wangui and Wambui are active members of the Kenyan Facebook community and have both shared intimate photos with Kori.

She got back to her house and prepared for a lunch date, but since Wangui’s taxi had stalled, she offered her a ride in her white Mercedes.

Police believe the two went on to have a happy afternoon, visiting various entertainment and social joints along Thika Highway.

In the evening, Wambui successfully convinced Wangui to take her to house (Wangui’s) – perhaps to put to rest her suspicions.

Four Ways Junction

Kori had rented a two-bedroom house for Wangui at Four Ways Junction where monthly rent is about Sh60,000. His photos hang on the walls leaving no doubt of the arrangement they had kept secret for more than two years.

The businessman was already at the house when Wangui took Wambui to the house – sparking off a fight that left Kori’s wife dead.

Her body was wrapped in a bedsheet and a taxi called to get rid of the body – he refused after discovering what was happening.

White Mercedes

Police believe Kori and Wangui then put the body in Wambui’s white Mercedes and damped her in Juja before informing relatives that his wife had been kidnapped.

Detectives, however, arrested Kori after they spotted him snooping around the scene where Wambui’s body was dumped.

The two are expected to face murder charges after a court in Kiambu granted detectives 14 more days to complete investigations.
