Joseph Kori is a man under siege. The murder of his wife Mary Wambui in which he is suspected to have conspired with his lover Juddy Wangui has brought to the fore a trail of 4 women who he allegedly had sexual relations with.
Inside Joseph Kori's life: details emerge on the 4 women in his life, love triangle and murdered wife
It gets complicated
As more details emerge, it is becoming increasingly clear that mixing business with pleasure was not off the table for the grieving widower who reportedly met several women who have been linked with him in the line of business.
Florence Wangari is the latest to add on to the tally of women linked to the embattled tycoon in police custody, bringing the final tally to four.
According to KTN, a trail of SMSs exchanged between Mary and Kori point to a romantic relationship between Kori and business lady. In one of her messages, Wambui complains that despite Wangari hurling insults at her, no explanation was given by Kori.
Wangari reportedly owns a joint business with Kori. In 2018, the firm won a Sh 15 Million tender to supply timber to a parastatal mandated of provision of electricity.
In the wake of the murder scandal, Grace came out to defend Kori, claiming that she was his first wife and the man he know could not have murdered Wambui.
Grace and Kori were reportedly married and had a daughter before the later walked out on her to move in win Mary Wambui.
Together, they hustled from the bottom, setting up a hardware and buying a Toyota Premio.
She found her way into Kori’s life in 2006 while serving as a secretary at a timber treatment plant that the latter operated in Nakuru.
When Kori closed the plant, he relocated to Nairobi together with Wangui and set up a hardware for his wife Mary Wambui with Wangui as one of her employees.
Their romantic relationship would blossom with Kori renting an apartment for her in the upmarket Fourways junction and lavishing her with presents, holidays and cars according to reports.
Shortly after ditching Grace, Kori moved on swiftly to Mary, convincing her to move in with him against the sishes of her mother.
After five years, the couple was blessed with a daughter and that was when things began going down South in the union according to text messages that are in possession of a local media house.
Wambui alleges that as soon as she got pregnant for Kori, he began treating her differently.
In one of the messages from Wambui, she pleads with her husband to have a sit down to sort out their problems (and save the relationship). In the message, she states that she is ready to speak the truth and delete her Facebook account and photos.
Kori however asserts that he is done with the relationship and he is moving on to which Wambui responds that that cannot be the case unless one of them is dead.
As things moved from bad to worse, Wambui opts to end the relationship and requests for a sit down to discuss how they would raise the children.
Mary would later meet her death after she was murdered in cold blood by people suspected to be her husband and his lover.
How he kept his reported sexual dealings with a trail of four women secret for years while maintaining a seemingly happy marriage and family is a puzzle to many.
