Kiambu murder probe: Police intensify search for George Mwangi's farmworker

  • Detectives are exploring the possibility that John Mwangi either took part in the murder and went into hiding or he is the second victim of the murderers.
  • According to those interrogated by police, John had worked for Mwangi for more than 5 years.

The disappearance of John Mwangi, a farmhand at the home of the late businessman George Mwangi has deepened the mystery surrounding the brutal murder of the Rwanda-based Kenyan engineer.

Sources privy to the investigations intimated to Citizen TV that after his clothes and mobile phone were found at the Mang’u house now a crime scene, detectives are exploring the possibility that he either took part in the murder and went into hiding or he is the second victim of Mwangi’s murderers.

According to those interrogated by police, John had worked for Mwangi for more than 5 years and on the Saturday night he disappeared, he was supposed to hand over to a new farmhand Maurice Mbugua who had been recruited by the deceased’s wife, Gladys Chania.

Mbugua, who Chania had hired, stands as her co-accused in the murder of her husband, where police were granted 7 days to continue holding the duo as investigations continue, in a miscellaneous application filed before a Kiambu court.

An autopsy of the deceased’s body that is currently at the Kenyatta University funeral home is yet to be conducted.

The body of George Mwangi, husband to Kiambu politician Gladys Chania, was found dumped in Kieni forest 20 km from his home.

Blood spatter was discovered in his bedroom and stair case and bloody bed sheets, clothes and curtains were also discovered in the Mang’u home.

Detectives believe the wife Gladys Chania had everything to do with the murder.
