Judy Wangui and Michael Githae, who are the main suspects in the murder case of Mary Wambui, failed to take their plea on Tuesday after Wangui’s lawyer Cliff Ombeta, wasn’t available.

The Kiambu High Court instead decided to move the case to Monday that will see the two take their pleas.

Ombeta was not present for the hearing due to unexplained circumstances.

Githae, who is a taxi driver, had been arrested over claims that he helped Wangui, who was Joseph Kori's mistress, dispose the body of the deceased.

The driver however turned against Wangui and stated that it was the mistress that killed Wambui by hitting her on the forehead using a pressure cooker.

Wangui claims police inserted pepper in her private parts

On February 13, Wangui had alleged that police inserted pepper in her private parts.

Through her lawyer, she had claimed that she had been assaulted by two female officers who left her with injuries on her thighs and her upper part of her body.

She further explained that the matter was not handled even after she had reported it to the OCS.
