Arrest Warrant for Kabiru’s Househelp to Testify in Journalist’s Murder Trial

A warrant of arrest was yesterday issued for the former househelp of the former NTV Journalist Wambui Kabiru.

High Court Judge Roselyn Korir said Eunice Mwangi is a crucial witness in the case and she must give her evidence. A summon had initially been issued by the court but the witness failed to honour it.

Justice Korir said Mwangi was present during the murder of Wambui and will assist to resolve the case.

“You need to find the witness and produce her in court. She might also be of help to the defence’s case,” said the Judge. Yesterday, the investigating officer Burure Marwa testified against Wambui’s husband Moses Dola.

Dola is accused of killing Wambui on May 1, 2011, before escaping. He later presented himself at the Naivasha police station.

Marwa told the court they never established why Dola wanted to kill his wife. He said Mwangi told the police that the two had quarrelled.

The court heard yesterday that Wambui had written a note to her son telling him to be careful and to remain strong. “Don’t ever make the mistake your mum and dad made. Be strong. Live your life son,” it read.

A crime scene officer, Inspector Charles Omwanda had told the court the note was part of the photographs he took as exhibits while inspecting the scene of crime. The case will be mentioned on September 11.
