The mother of two brothers slain in Kitengela underwent counselling on Monday, as the boys’ godfather, demands justice.
Lucy Wanjiru, who landed in the country on Sunday, underwent various medical checks on arrival at her palatial home in Syokimau when her family members called in a family doctor.
Her brother, Joseph Macharia, said he was forced to seek the help of a family doctor after Wanjiru displayed signs of stress and lack of appetite.
“She cried a lot on arrival at the airport after she was overwhelmed by the news of the death of her only sons. She had also been hospitalised back in the UK after she went into shock soon she was hit with the news of the Kitengela murders on August 8,” said Macharia.
Macharia said her church, St Mary’s ACK in Mlolongo is providing counsellors and has been proving prayers for the family members from Sunday.
This was happening as the godfather of the deceased brothers, Rev James Wanjama, called on the DCI to fast-track the case for possible arrest of the suspected killers.
“The killers are out there moving freely, and yet the local people living around the scene of the attack have all the information the police require,” said Wanjama.
Wanjama claimed he mentored the two brothers; Fredrick Mureithi, 30, and his young brother Victor Mwangi, 25, in the ACK where he serves.
“The two have never been involved in any crime and their mother trusted them with her millions to construct rental houses that were going on near their home in Syokimau,” said Wanjama.
Meanwhile, multi security agencies in Mlolongo, Machakos County on Monday stopped a planned memorial service that had been planned by the youth and the private bikers association of Kenya members to take place in Syokimau on the same day.
Rev James Wanjama said security agencies in the area looked at various issues including the Covid-19 pandemic, the security in the areas and other factors that could not augur well with the prevailing situation.
“When you allow a memorial service to take place in the open, you will never control those coming in. The youth are angry their friends were murdered in cold blood and may decide to use the occasion to cause mayhem,” said Wanjama.
He said the church has planned a memorial service on Wednesday at St Mary’s, Mlolongo, where a restricted number of family members will be allowed in.
Wanjama also clarified that Wanjiru’s late sons will be buried in Nyandarua county at Mayu village in the Leshau Pondo area on Friday.
