Police arrest Francis Muriithi ,48, after admitting to have murdered Joyce Kaira Muthiru, 49
Police Arrests in Kirinyaga


The Kirinyaga County Police officers have detained Francis Muriithi ,48, who reportedly confessed to killing Mutira MCA David Kinyua Wangui’s mother-in-law.


Kirinyaga Central Police Commander Doly Odour said Francis Muriithi was arrested in his house after coming out of hiding.


The police boss said Muriithi even surrendered a bloody Machete that he supposedly used to hack the deceased and was taken to the Kerugoya Police Station where he is being detained.


The suspect is said to have attacked the deceased, Joyce Kaira Muthiru, 49, on Wednesday last week at 7pm while she was preparing supper.


Ms. Muthiru was then rushed to the Kerugoya Referral Hospital where she was declared dead on arrival.


Mutira Ward Representative David Kinyua Wangui is mostly recognized in Kirinyaga County for tabling the impeachment motion against Governor Anne Waiguru in June this year for gross violation of the constitution.


A month later, his home was invaded by strange people during which two jerrycans of petrol were left behind by the attackers after his farmhand raised alarm over a huge fire in the cattle shed.
