Former Nairobi MCA Found Guilty of Murder

Former Riruta MCA, Samuel Ndung’u, along with two accomplices, faced the Kiambu High Court’s judgment for their involvement in a murder case. The trio, including Ndung’u, were convicted by Justice Joel Ngugi on April 5.

Today, on April 12, they received their sentencing after being in police custody. According to Radio Maisha, Justice Joel Ngugi sentenced each of them to serve 30 years in prison. Their conviction stemmed from the murder of Lucy Njambi, who was previously married to Ndung’u.

The court’s decision was based on compelling evidence presented by 38 witnesses, establishing the guilt of the accused beyond a reasonable doubt. This evidence linked the trio to the planning and execution of Njambi’s murder.

Gathoni Wamuchomba’s Say

Githunguri MP, Gathoni Wamuchomba, who had been closely following the case since 2018, expressed satisfaction with the verdict, stating that justice had been served. She offered words of solace to the deceased, saying that now Njambi could rest in peace, awaiting divine judgment for the accused in the afterlife.

“Today we uphold the resolution of the Judge of the honorable court on the judgment and we accept his decision and we are waiting for the day of sentencing which we appreciate is not going to be more than fourteen days,” she said

The tragic events leading to Njambi’s death involved her abduction from her residence in Thindigua. Ndung’u allegedly orchestrated the abduction, during which Njambi was subjected to torture, including sexual assault and forced ingestion of sulphuric acid. Subsequently, she was abandoned in a coffee plantation, where a passerby discovered her and rushed her to Kiambu Level 5 Hospital. Despite being transferred to Kenyatta National Hospital for specialized treatment, Njambi succumbed to her injuries. She left behind a son.

This verdict marks the culmination of a six-year-long legal battle, closing the final chapter in the pursuit of justice for Lucy Njambi.
