A former Kiambu woman representative aspirant has found herself on the wrong side of the law after she was identified as the main suspect in her husband's murder.

In the mystery unravelled by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the suspect, Gladys Chania is said to have murdered her husband, George Mwangi, after she suspected him of having an affair with a secretary at a local school.

"A Kiambu-based politician who unsuccessfully vied for the Kiambu Woman Rep position in the last elections has been identified as the main suspect behind the murder," a statement by the DCI reads in parts.

Prior to his untimely death, the deceased, who was a Rwandan-based Engineer had landed in the country to visit his children.

Hours before his return flight to Rwanda, the 58-year-old was allegedly killed and his body dumped at Kieni forest in Kiambu County.

At the time, his wife reported him as a missing person prompting the police to launch a probe into the matter.

"George Mwangi was reported missing by his wife Gladys Chania, on October 11, 2022, at 8:00 pm," a police report reads in parts.

Later, the body of the deceased was found wrapped in a polythene bag and covered with a heap of cartons.

"Casual labourers working in tea plantations located in Kamunyaka discovered the deceased's lifeless body that was wrapped in a polythene bag and covered under a heap of cartons on Wednesday, October 12, 2022," DCI stated.

Detectives who visited the deceased's palatial home in Mangu, Kiambu County found some murder weapons used to end his life.

Among the items found were blood-soaked bed sheets, hidden clothes and curtains.

"Detectives based at the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau and the Homicide department who are currently combing the scene of the murder, have recovered some of the murder weapons used to kill the Rwanda-based engineer," DCI added.

Preliminary investigations revealed that there were blood splatter patterns across the walls of the bedroom, along the stairway and the wardrobe, concluding that the deceased was killed at the house before his body was dumped in the forest.
