Police on Friday, October 14 arrested Gladys Chania, Kiambu politician whose husband was murdered and body dumped in Kieni Forest in Gatundu North.

Confirming the arrest, Kiambu Police Commander Perminus Kioi said that Chania is the prime suspect in the murder of her husband George Mwangi, with her police reports not adding up.

The body of Mwangi was found wrapped in a polythene bag in the said forest on Wednesday, October 12 evening.

Fresh twist 

Chania had told police that Mwangi, 58, went missing from their home in Mangu, Kiambu on Sunday, October 9 morning. She made a missing person's report at Kamwangi Police Station and later at Mwea Police Post.

But the police are now looking at a possibility that Mwangi might have been killed in their house before being dumped in the forest.

Four other suspects have also being arrested as investigations continue.

Mwangi and Gladys had been married for 24 years. The couple has three children.
