New details have emerged in the murder of former lands commission staffer Jennifer Wambua after key suspects in her murder talks.
The two suspects now say they left the former deputy director of communication at the scene where her body was later found.
The two who were arrested on Thursday told the police that they met Jennifer lying at the scene on March 12, held a brief chat with her, and were later joined by a third man who they told police they can identify.
They said that they left her with the third person between 4-5 PM, adding that the deceased then looked depressed and, sad.
She is reported to have asked them for water and the third man offered to get her some, walking to a nearby shopping center and brought her the water, after which they left the two at the scene still talking.
“They claim they were on their own business there when they met the woman lying there and talked briefly. They said she seemed disturbed and depressed. They claim they were joined by a man they know from the area and is the one who brought her water that we suspect was spiked,” said a detective aware of the probe.
The two appeared before Kiambu law courts that ordered their detention at the Muthaiga police station until April 23 when they appear there again for further directions.
The police are still hunting for the killer who is believed to have sexually abused Wambua before killing her.
Following their investigation, a number of her fellow staff at NLC were on Wednesday grilled for hours as part of the probe into the murder.
Wambua went missing on March 12, 2021 and her body was found dumped in Ngong Forest the following day.
