Rwanda-based Kiambu businessman George Mwangi died after sustaining injuries from a blunt object to the head, an autopsy has revealed.

The autopsy conducted on his body at the Kenyatta University Funeral Home on Friday, October 21 established that Mwangi was hit several times on the back of his head. It also revealed that he had injuries on his left hand fingers.

The exercise was conducted by Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor. Mwangi’s family members were present.

Mwangi's wife prime suspect

Mwangi's wife, Kiambu politician Gladys Chania is the main suspect in the "complex murder".

Kiambu Senior Resident Magistrate Wilson Radin'g allowed police to detain Chania and another suspect - Maurice Mbugua - until October 24 as they conclude their investigations.

Detectives from the Homicide Department have taken over the matter and are currently looking for another suspect identified as John, who went missing ever since the body of Mwangi was found stashed in a polythene bag and dumped in Kieni Forest in Gatundu North.

Arrest of Gladys Chania

Chania was arrested on Friday, October 14, with Kiambu Police Commander Perminus Kioi saying that she was the prime suspect in the murder of her husband as her reports were not adding up.

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

But preliminary investigations have revealed that Mwangi was killed in his house before being dumped in the forest.
