Police have arrested a third suspect in the murder of National Lands Commission official Jennifer Wambua.

Detectives investigating the murder of the National Lands Commission official in March established that she received over Sh2 million in her account a few days before she was murdered.

According to detectives, the money was from her employer and was to be used to pay suppliers for a project she was overseeing.

Sleuths probed if the money is connected to her death since 2 million shillings was withdrawn from her account, but the suppliers say they were not paid.


The detectives have established that the late Jennifer received 58 calls before her gruesome murder.

Further, they were looking into these calls to establish whether there is any critical information that can help nail her killers.

So far, Wambua’s husband and several members of staff at the NLC have been grilled over her murder. More persons of interest are expected to emerge as the case advances.

Wambua went missing on March 12, and unfortunately, her body was found dumped in Ngong Forest the following day. She was buried on March 24 in Machakos County.
