The body of Jennifer Wambua, veteran journalist was found at the City mortuary days after she went missing.

The Frontier Post has established that Ms Wambua could have been a State Witness in a multi-million corruption case involving key figures at the National Lands Commission (NLC).

Wambua was currently serving as an employee of the National Land Commission (NLC) and went missing on Friday last week.

And now detectives are trying to piece together information on who killed Wambua and why?

“Her body was found in Ngong forest. She was strangled to death,” said a senior detective who sought anonymity at the City morgue.

Wambua had already testified in the case and was to be cross-examined on Monday.

The Frontier Post cannot however link her disappearance and subsequent murder to the ongoing case involving more than 20 individuals, among them a serving lawmaker.

The mother of three was a Deputy Communications Director at the Commission. A report of the incident had been made at the Capitol Hill Police station in Nairobi.

Her missing was reported to the Police by her husband Joseph Komu.

On the day she went missing, Wambua had left her personal effects at the family vehicle’s boot.

Police had reviewed a CCTV footage of her movements into and out of the NLC offices that showed her get in on the day she went missing.

She left the offices at around 10am.

“She was alone,” a detective who has reviewed the footage said.

Her husband said he dropped the mother of three at the offices at about 7am and went to his place of work at Ministry of Agriculture at Kilimo House where he works after parking the car at a yard near his office.

“On this day when I called her early in the morning, she did not pick up my call. That was not usual since we are always in constant communication,” said Komu.

Her phone was mysteriously found at the husband’s car.
