  • In a surprise twist in Mary Wambui's Murder case, the widower Joseph Kori told the court that his mistress, Judy Wangui, changed the ownership of a car he bought to her name.

    On Friday, Kori, through his lawyer Harrison Thimba filed a complaint that Wangui colluded with other people to transfer the ownership documents of a white Mercedes Benz saloon car, KCR 898L while in custody.

    He further told the court that he had allegedly bought the car for Wangui but chose to maintain the documents in his name.

    The car which was identical to his wife's vehicle KCR 898L, had been detained at Juja police station and it is upon his release that Kori discovered the transfer of ownership.

    “The motor vehicle belonging to my client (Kori) has been released, the only pending issue is about the other motor vehicle KCR 898L, which was illegally transferred to Judy (Wangui) when my client was in custody,” Thimba told the court.

    Similarly, on Friday, Kori was released by the court unconditionally after the prosecution and the detectives working on the case determined that he was not involved in the murder of his wife.

    Reports, however, indicate that he will be testifying against his co-accused for the prosecution.

    Kori was co-accused with a woman said to be his lover, Judy Wangui.

    The Kiambu Court also noted that Kori would testify as a prosecution witness against another suspect, Michael Githae.
