The house help of Elizabeth Koki has revealed more details on the events that happened the night the Nairobi lawyer died. Elizabeth Koki was found dead in her bedroom in Syokimau, Machakos County, on 8th January.
The house help recorded a statement with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations. She told the detectives that on the night of her suspected murder, Koki arrived home at around 8 pm.
At 9 pm, Christian Mwambay Kadima, a frequent visitor in the home, also arrived. The house help then took Koki’s two children to bed. Koki and the man then went to Koki’s bedroom.
The house help said that she heard screams coming from Koki’s room at around 10.30 pm. However, she did not go to check since the two fought regularly.
The next morning, Koki did not leave the house at 7 am as she usually did. At 10 am, the house help went to her bedroom to check on her. It was at this moment that she realized the lawyer had died.
Vincent Kipkorir, the Athi River DCI boss, said that the suspect has not yet recorded his statement.
“We are still waiting for Kadima’s lawyer. He has declined to record a statement until a lawyer accompanies him,” the DCI boss said.
