Jennifer Wambua, the National Land Commission employee who went missing on Friday, has been found dead.
Her body was discovered at Nairobi’s City Mortuary on Monday. Police said the body had been picked at Ngong Forest.
“It had been marked unidentified,” a mortuary attendant who sought anonymity disclosed.
Wambua who worked as the Deputy Director in charge of communication went missing after leaving the office on Friday shortly after checking into the office according to surveillance footage analyzed by police.
Her husband, Joseph Komu, who filed a missing person report at Capitol Hill Police Station, said he had found her handbag in their car on which they drove to work on the day she disappeared.
“When I called her that day at about 10am, she did not pick up,” her husband said.
Komu works at the Kilimo House, which is within the proximity of her office.
A source intimated that Wambua was a state witness in a graft case pending in court.
“The woman was to make an appearance on Monday in court for a cross-examination exercise in the multi-million shillings scandal,” a source who did not want to be named said.
Wambua was a mother of three children.
