Investigators looking into the death of the late Keroche Breweries Tecra Muigai now claim that Omari Lali, the late Tecra’s lover was reportedly involved with a Dutch woman with whom he has a child.
The Dutch woman is said to have rented an apartment about 6 kilometers from where Mr Lali and Ms Muigai were living.
Although investigators did not reveal whether Mr Lali and the woman met during the period, Mr Lali is said to have travelled to Lamu shortly after the woman arrived from a short vacation in Naivasha.
The late Keroche Breweries head of Strategy and Innovation is said to have joined Mr Lali in Lamu thereafter where she stayed over 38 days.
A possible love triangle may be one of the theories that investigators may pursue after an autospy questioned ”a fall down the stairs” as the sole cause of Ms Muigais death.
Government Chief Pathologist Johansen Oduor said the autopsy showed the deceased had multiple head injuries some of which were not consistent with a fall down a flight of stairs.
“This observation indicates blunt object injury as well as a possible fall,” Oduor was quoted by the Daily Nation.
Another consultant pathologist Andrew Gachie said the multiple impact sites of the injuries suggested both blunt object blows and a possible fall,”.
A toxicology report also found no alcohol content in Ms Muigai’s system ruling out claims that the late stumbled down a flight of stairs in a state of intoxication.
A house-keeper at the apartment where the two lovers stayed told investigators that Mr. Lali had asked them to clean up bloodstains at the bottom of the stairs which were a result of a ‘minor accident’.
The latest comes just days after the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji dropped murder charges against Mr. Lali.
Lali appeared before Garsen Law Courts where the office of the DPP called for fresh investigations into the incident leading to Tecra’s death.
He was on Monday morning arrested and charged with murder after police and the prosecutor, banking on evidence gathered by investigators, said they were satisfied that the death was not accidental.
Lali has been the prime suspect in the death of Tecra who reportedly fell to her demise in the bathroom of the house they shared on May 3, 2020.
The deceased, who was also a director at her parents’ company, was laid to rest on May 16, 2020 in a private ceremony at the family’s home in Naivasha.
