The body of a 25-year-old lady who was last seen with her estranged husband on Sunday last week has been found in Nakuru.
Faith Wangui was last reported to have gone to visit her estranged lover, Joseph Muchiri, in an attempt to mend fences.
Her body was discovered dumped at the Menengai Crater and her lover, who is the key suspect is on the run.
The mother of two left her work station in Murang’a on Saturday last week to take her children to their aunt’s place in Nakuru for the December holidays.
On that day, Wangui sent her friend a message indicating that she had gone to meet Muchiri at an entertainment joint in Nakuru Town.
This was the last time she was seen alive before her body was found six days later .
Her left hand and breast were chopped off, her face doused in what is suspected to be acid.
The victim’s family now claims Muchiri, has been abusive for the past 6 years, adding that this prompted Wangui to leave his house late last year.
“Their marriage has not been straight for long, the guy was a threat. For the last six years that they have been together, the marriage was hell. Once when she gave birth and the child was two weeks old, he beat her up badly,” said her brother Joseph Mwangi.
