Police seize bhang, used condoms at deceased Langata woman’s home, GSU officer detained

Police investigations have established that the woman earlier reported to have died after jumping from the third floor of an apartment she lived in Langata, a Nairobi suburb, was killed before her body was dumped at the backside of the building she lived in.

A postmortem report revealed the cause of Nelvine Museti’s death was a head injury caused by blunt force trauma.

It had been presumed that Ms Museti, 28, had jumped from the third floor of Ascot apartments after her body was found outside with blood oozing from her nose.

Neighbours had heard a thud at around 5 am before the body was found at around 6 am on January 11, 2023.

Police officers visited the scene after the caretaker of the building reported the incident.

The cops later proceeded to Museti’s house, which was not locked and found it disorganised, and the balcony door open.

In an affidavit filed at the Kibera Law courts, Detective Constable Johnson Wanjohi of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Langata offices stated police recovered exhibits, including used condoms, an indication that Museti was in the company of a man the previous night.

Other items recovered at the house include an empty beer bottle, two glasses containing substances suspected to be alcohol bhang, and a half-full -two-litre bottle containing a beverage.

“Preliminary investigations were conducted and established that on the night of the incident, the deceased was in the company of a man in her house where they consumed the drinks found on the table and had sexual intercourse as evidenced by the presence of used condoms,” stated Wanjohi.

Some of the items have been forwarded to the Government Chemist for Toxicology and DNA analysis, according to the DCI.

The detective said he was investigating a case of murder contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the Penal Code.

The DCI forensics investigations led to the arrest of a police officer attached to the General Service Unit (GSU) at the Unit’s headquarters in Ruaraka, Nairobi.

Victor Otieno Ouma is currently in custody at the Langata police station after Wanjohi obtained orders to detain him for 21 days. The orders were granted by Senior Principal Magistrate Irene Kahuya.

DCI’s forensic analysis of Ms Museti’s mobile phone call logs and text messages led to the arrest of Mr Ouma as a suspect in the murder.
