Gladys Chania in custody over husband’s murder to be detained for 7 more days

BY HARRIET MUGO

A Kiambu court has allowed police to detain Gladys Chania and Maurice Mbugua, the prime suspects in the murder of George Mwangi.

The duo will remain in police custody for seven days to allow police to complete investigations.

Kiambu Senior resident magistrate Wilson Rading said the two will appear in court on October 24 for further directions. She was arrested Chania on Friday.

Chania is believed to have mooted the murder plan after she learnt about her husband’s alleged love affair with a secretary at a local school turned tenant.

Mwangi, 58, is a contractor based in Rwanda and arrived in the country on September 13.

Chania is suspected to have colluded in executing his murder with a new employee and other accomplices.

The couple had been married for 20 years with three children.

“However, according to multiple sources, their union seemed to have been undergoing turbulent times since the woman would mostly spend her time at their Thika home while Mwangi would stay at the splendid five-bedroomed Mang’u residence whenever he was in the country,” DCI said.

The DCI revealed that the alleged affair begun shortly after the woman met Mwangi while house-hunting for a rental apartment.

He offered her one of his rentals next to his house.

The alleged affair was reportedly not a secret as the two spent a lot of time together whenever Mwangi was in the country.

DCI said they would be spotted at local entertainment joints and other social gatherings.

“Some of the family members intimated to detectives that the deceased had introduced the woman to his family as his second wife and she was well known to the extended family,” DCI stated.
