The house help of the murdered Nairobi lawyer Elizabeth Koki Musyoka has revealed damning details over what happened on the fateful night. The 34-year-old lawyer was found dead last Saturday at her Syokimau home.

Police have since arrested her boyfriend Christian Mwambay Kadima to help with investigations.

A post-mortem examination has since revealed that she was strangled. Government Pathologist Johansen Odour conducted the post-mortem examination on Tuesday at a funeral home in Nairobi, and noted glaring scratch marks around the city lawyer’s neck, suggesting she may have attempted to free herself from her attacker.

Her domestic help told the officers that on the said night Koki was home by 8 pm. At around 9 pm, she was joined by a man, who had become a frequent visitor to the home. The house help and Koki’s two children later went to bed, leaving Koki and the man in the sitting room. At around 10.30 pm she heard a scream from her boss’ bedroom but was unperturbed given that she had witnessed previous fights between the couple.

The following morning Koki, who was supposed to leave the house for work at 7 am, did not wake up. At around 10 am, the help walked into Koki’s bedroom, where she found her lifeless body in bed.

Athi-River DCI boss Vincent Kipkorir told local media that Kadima had told investigators that on the given night he visited Koki’s house after she invited him for supper. When Kadima arrived, Koki demanded to check his phone. This, the suspect said, led to a confrontation before he walked out in a huff, according to Kipkorir.

“We are still waiting for his lawyer. He (Kadima) has declined to record a statement until he is accompanied by a lawyer,” Kipkorir told a local daily

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officers in Mlolongo on Wednesday went to court to seek orders to stop further transactions from the lawyer’s bank account.

This is after investigators established that the demised lawyer was operating a joint account with her boyfriend now under investigation for the capital offence.

Last week Machakos County DCI boss Charles Mutua said Kadima had multiple identities, adding that the suspect had a Nigerian passport, but claimed to be Congolese of South African descent.
