After months of planning for her trip to Qatar in search of greener pastures, Joyce Wanjiru Nyambura’s life was cut short on the same week she was supposed to leave the country.
Nyambura and her boyfriend Bolden Nyakundi aka Ras, her suspected killer, were reportedly seen together on Monday, July 26. The two spent time at Hannah Migwi, deceased’s sister’s house in Maziwa, Kiambu County.
In an exclusive interview with TV47 Digital, Nyambura’s brother Derrick Muchiri, popularly known as MC Masilver, said that she was scheduled to jet off to Qatar on Friday, July 23. She, however, complained of a toothache, prompting their mother Cecilia Nyambura to advise her to postpone the trip to July 30.
This was to give her ample time to consult a dentist and receive proper treatment before leaving the country.
Nyakundi was involved in Qatar plan
On the fateful day, Muchiri says, the suspect appeared normal. He reveals that he was aware of the Qatar plans. “He was informed of every step. If he didn’t want her to leave, he could have asked her not to, or showed resistance at some point which he did not.”
Nyambura’s brother would later leave the ‘lovebirds’, only to be awoken by calls of Nyambura’s untimely demise on Tuesday morning, July 27.
“My mother called me on Tuesday morning telling me to rush to our elder sister’s house. I found Nyambura lying lifeless on the corridor. She was bleeding from her mouth, nose and lower back,” Muchiri narrates.
The family alleged the suspect might have stabbed their daughter at his place which is nearby, and Nyambura died while trying to seek help from her sister Migwi.
The family filed a report at Kahawa West Police Station under OB number O.B.04/27/7/21. Police officers removed the body to Kenyatta University Funeral Home.
An autopsy reportedly conducted on Thursday, July 29 revealed that Nyambura succumbed to excessive bleeding from the abdomen. The report also said that she was stabbed through her mouth and lower backside.
Police recover bloodstained clothes, two knives
Police also recovered a blood-stained shirt and a pair of trousers and two knives at the suspect’s house in Maziwa area.
Nyakundi has since gone into hiding. The deceased’s family now pleads for justice for their kin. “Why did he have to kill her if he didn’t want her to leave? Why be so inhuman?” Muchiri writes on Facebook.
Nyambura’s brother says his sister was hardworking and independent. “She still lived with her children and was the sole provider for her children. She would only meet up with Ras at our other sister’s house.”
Nyambura will be laid to rest on Tuesday, August 3 in Githiga, Kiambu County.
