A 48 year old man has been detained for reportedly admitting to murdering Mutira MCA David Kinyua Wangui’s mother-in-law.
According to Kirinyaga central police boss Poly Oduor, the suspect identified as Francis Muriithi was arrested while hiding in his house, and taken to Kerugoya police station.
Sources say that the suspect freely gave away the panga which he had supposedly used to slash the deceased.
It is said that the deceased, identified as 49 year old Joyce Kaira Muthiru was attacked by the suspect while cooking dinner, last week Wednesday at 7 pm.
David Kinyua Wangui, the Mutira Ward Representative has recently been on the limelight for introducing the impeachment motion against Governor Anne Waiguru mid this year for gross violation of constitution.
A month ago the MCA’s home was attacked by unidentified people in an incident that caused a huge fire at his cattle shed. It is reported that the assailants ran away, leaving behind two petrol jerrycans, after an alarm was raised.
