Murder case of city lawyer Paul Magu and family enters day two

The hearing of a case in which Pastor Ann Wambui Wanyoro has been linked with the deaths of city lawyer Paul Magu and four members of his family in 2014 continued Friday at the Kiambu Law Courts.

Margaret Njoki, who was Magu’s house girl, was the first to appear before the court to testify.

Ms Njoki, narrated how she opened Magu’s bedroom only to find blood stains on the walls and on the floor.

She also told the court that the suspect, Pastor Wanyoro, spent four days in the Magus residence before his wife Lydia Wangui disappeared.

Ms Njoki also testified that she heard Magu telling the kids that their mother went with the pastor  to church.

The hearing is before Kiambu Law Courts Principal Magistrate Justus Kituku.

Pastor Wanyoro was charged with planning the murdering of Mrs Magu and their children Allen, 9, Ryan, 8 and Tiffany, 6.

Mrs Magu went missing on November 23rd, 2014 and her partially burnt body was found in a thicket on Kiambu Road.

Magu left home with the three children in his car but returned home alone before travelling to his rural home in Thika the same day.

He was found dead on November 25th, 2014. The bodies of the children were found in different parts of the 2,500-acre Tatu City real estate land.

Pastor Wanyoro has since denied charges and is out on a Ksh 2 million bond.
