A family in Kiambu County is in shock and agony after a man killed his wife before committing suicide in Kiamumbi estate along Kamiti Road. Albert Mwangi, who was in his 50s, struck his wife to death with a blunt object before ingesting a poisonous substance and hanging himself at their home in Kiambu following an alleged prolonged domestic dispute.
In a suicide note addressed to his four children, Albert painted an image of a sour and rocky marriage with his wife,Milcah Mwangi, a businesswoman who was in her late 40s.
He claimed that his wife had been threatening, tormenting and insulting him; and even worse, that she hated him.
“I didn’t know that I married a counterfeit wife. I married a Jezebel and her intention was just to steal everything from me. She has been threatening me, insulting me, she hated me… The end of the fight is over,” reads part of the note dated May 21, 2019.
Albert further accused his wife of colluding with her brother to allegedly “destroy his life.”
“Both Milcah and his brother planned to steal everything from me, destroy my life and then kill me,” he claimed.
The bodies of the couple were moved to the Kenyatta University Hospital morgue and are set to be buried next week in Kangema, Murang’a County.
Here is the suicide note as he wrote it:
“To all my children Judy Wanjiku, Susan Wanjiru, Claire Waithira, Edwin Martin, Gloria Wanjiku,
We Albert and Miclah we leave you in the hands of God. We have gone to be with the LORD since we marry, we have been fighting, I didn’t know that I married a counterfeit wife.
