When Judy Wangui defiantly and shamelessly showed up at her lover’s home and met his wife Mary Wambui Kamangara, she had no idea how quickly things would escalate in the subsequent hours.
The following day, the body of her rival with whom they shared a plate of Githeri and Nyama Choma was found dumped in a dam in Juja, Kiambu County.
Wambui’s husband,Joseph Kori Karue who is the man at the center of the drama and Judy are being held by police over the murder, that is suspected to have been perpetrated at Judy’s Four Ways Junction apartment along Kiambu Road.
Judy’s photos also suggested she led a lavish lifestyle and she enjoyed every bit of it.
Karue is a loaded ‘tenderpreneur’ whose firm last year won a multi-million-shilling deal with a parastatal, while his late wife, a mother of two, was a businesswoman based in Kahawa West, Nairobi County.
Sources close to the investigation claim Judy confessed that Kori hit his wife with the butt of his pistol during the commotion.
She reportedly collapsed and died and her body was later dumped in the dam in Juja. Karue apparently told his wife’s parents that Wambui had been kidnapped.
According to police reports, Karue warned his lover – Wangui – against revealing what transpired in her house.
“Wangui told us that the man promised to give her Sh2 million for her silence over the matter,” a police source told the Nairobian
But why did Wangui – who was earlier an employee of Karue and Wambui – agree to take the latter to her house, knowing she was Karue’s side dish and that his photos prominently adorned the walls of her apartment?
Wambui’s family have admitted that Kori was in a previous relationship before hooking up with the deceased.
“Before he met my sister, Kori was involved with another woman, with whom they have a child,” said Esther Kamangara, the late Wambui’s sister.
