Court okays City politician Gladys Chanira’s further detention over husband’s murder
A court has allowed Police to detain Kiambu Politician Gladys Chania for a week so as to conclude the investigations over the murder of her husband.
Ms Chania was produced in court today where police made the request.
She has been in custody since Friday and will be detained alongside Maurice Mbugua in relation to the death of George Mwangi, a Rwandan-based businessman.
Police say Mbugua is a person of interest in the case.
The deceased’s body was discovered in Kieni Forest a few hours before he was supposed to fly to Kigali.
The body was wrapped in a polythene bag and buried beneath a pile of cartons.
Mwangi’s remains were discovered the same day Ms Chania made a missing person report with regards to her husband at the Mwea Police Post in Gatundu.
It was allocated the OB number 18/11/10/2022.
However, police believe Mwangi, 58 was killed at his home, and his body transported to a forest wrapped in polythene and doused with acid
Nairobi News understands Chania has been transferred from Kiambu to Nairobi as police hunt for a farmhand to record a statement over the incident.
A detective privy to the investigations says a government pathologist is set to examine Mwangi’s body this week to establish the cause of death.
