Mercy Wangari (pictured), a 22-year-old university student is a principal suspect in the death of her 72-year-old grandmother.
New information emerging from Mercy Wangari’s interrogation with detectives in August last year indicates that she confessed to having killed her grandmother.
Wangari said that her grandmother was very sweet and loving to her and her family. She said this is a long statement which investigators considered a confession.
She is from a family of 5: Two parents and two brothers.
She said her grandmother started a love-hate relationship with her family when her dad lost his job. In her confession, she goes ahead to state that, after the father lost his job and could no longer provide for the family, they had to rely on their grandmother.
Wangari admits that her grandmother was gracious enough to pay her school fees, However, Wangari says that the grandmother would talk about Wangari’s family problems to other relatives, including random villagers.
This angered Wangari and family causing a split between them. Wangari claims that her grandmother started to treat her differently because she thought her university education had changed her style of living.January 23, 2021 |
