Gatunguru School principal’s wife arrested over his murder.

Shocked residents mill around the vehicle where the body of Gatunguru Secondary School Principal, Sammy Mbogo had been dumped in Gakurwe area about 200 metres from his home.

Alice Wachera, the wife to Gatunguru Secondary School principal Samuel Mbogo who was murdered on Sunday night, has been arrested over his murder.

Mbogo’s mutilated body was found dumped in the boot of his car which had been abandoned at Gakurwe area on the Murang’a-Kiriaini road about 200 metres from his home.

The body was found naked, with tongue and eyes gorged out.

Confirming the incident, Mathioya OCPD Charles Mutua said the body was discovered by residents of the area who noticed drops of blood near the vehicle.

A resident, Ms. Judy Njeri, said she saw blood oozing out of Mbogo's car, and when she opened the door she found the principal's naked body, with eyes and tongue gouged out.

Gathukiini Chief Stephen Komu suspect that the killers were on their way to dispose the principal’s body but after the vehicle stalled in a ditch, they fled.

He added that after visiting the deceased’s home, they also discovered blood stains, raising suspicion that Mbogo was murdered in his house.

“We suspect that he was killed in his house because at his home we also found drops of blood and his daughter who is about 8 years old told us that two men whom she had never seen before came to their home last night,” narrated the area chief.

According to him, the couple had a troublesome marriage as the deceased and his wife severally engaged in domestic disputes. During the last incident between the two three months ago, the deceased’s wife was involved when he was cut in the head.

“We understand that the two were in a rocky marriage and the wife had at one point injured the deceased. So when we look at all these events we highly suspect the wife’s involvement in this latest incident,” said Komu.

Police officers were forced to use tear gas to disperse a mob that wanted to attack Wachera, accusing her of the crime.

The Kenya National Union of Teachers Murang’a branch secretary Rosaline Kamina condemned the murder, urging teachers to seek other alternatives to settle marital disputes.
