Nyeri Billionaire Drags Woman Into Son's Murder Case

In the letter copied to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Wang'ondu stated that he was ready to provide any information that would assist with the investigations into the murder of his 32-year-old son Daniel Mwangi in January 2021.

Stephen Wang'ondu, the Nyeri billionaire accused of hiring a hitman to kill his son has asked the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to carry out a fresh investigation into the murder, adding that they should probe his son's wife.

In the letter copied to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Wang'ondu stated that he was ready to provide any information that would assist with the investigations into the murder of his 32-year-old son Daniel Mwangi in January 2021.

Wang'ondu called upon the DCI to consider recording statements from Mwangi's wife.

He claimed that before Mwangi's death, there was an exchange of messages between him and members of his wife's family.

"In penning this letter, I recognise that in the exercise of the powers conferred upon your office, you are enjoined to always have regard for public interest and the need to prevent and avoid abuse of office, power, and legal process," he wrote.

He added that Mwangi's wife had paid him a visit at his home, a day before his arrest and warned him that he would be taken in.

"I believe that I am being fixed by some of my family members that are eyeing my estate," he stated.

Mwangi was found lying in a pool of blood on January 1, 2021, outside his home in Mweiga town. Nothing was stolen from him, not even his Volkswagen Golf which was in the compound.

Police arrested five individuals; Wang'ondu, his driver James Mahinda, Geoffrey Warutumo, Eddy Kariuki, and Raphael Wachira in connection with the murder, with reports alleging that the suspects may have been paid Ksh160,000 to kill Mwangi.

One of the suspects who was allegedly hired to commit the murder revealed that the Nyeri businessman was in love with his son's wife, something that reportedly caused a rift between Wang'ondu and his son.

The matter is still under investigation.
