Landlady In Trouble For Dumping Human Body Left Behind By Evicted Tenant

A landlady and her two aides in Nairobi’s Umoja estate are being questioned by the DCI for dumping a human body that was left in her rental by a former tenant on May 30.

The dismembered body of an unknown adult female was dumped at Tumaini Primary School in Umoja by one Nicholas Kimathi, a garbage collector.

Nancy Wanja Njuguna is reported to have locked David Migwi Kariuki’s house at the beginning of May 2020.

David had accumulated rent arrears for a few months that he was unable to clear thus the eviction.

According to Nairobi News, David returned weeks later and broke into the rental. He packed all his valuables and left without trace.

A filed affidavit at the Makadara Law Court indicates that among the few items David left behind were wedding decor and a water tank.

Upon getting into the rental house, Ms Njuguna found the body.

Newslex Point reports that she then hired Kennedy Otieno Omar, a casual labourer to clean up the “mess.”

Omar is said to have wrapped the body in the decor and placed it outside the house for Kimathi to pick it up from there.

Later on, the police were informed of the unidentified body dumped at the school. It was traced to Ms Njuguna and her aides leading to their arrest.

Inspector John Kanampiu of the BuruBuru DCI offices told Nairobi News that he was able to obtain a court order to detain the suspects for 14 days.

According to the officer, Ms Njuguna has no form of ID or anything at all that can be used to trace David Kariuki.

However, Kimathi has denied the case having anything to do with his role. In his defense, he is just a garbage collector who minded his own business.

“There was a smell but I assumed the materials were smelling because of being water-drenched and I did not bother to check because they were heaps.” Nairobi News reported.

Investigations on the case are ongoing.
