Criminal investigations, DCI have released a statement indicating politician Gladys Chania arrested over suspected murder.
Detectives have arrested Gladys Chania, who unsuccessfully vied for the Kiambu Woman Representative seat in the last general elections, as the main suspect behind the death of her husband engineer George Mwangi.
Gladys is believed to have masterminded the murder of her husband following her discovery that the father of their three children was having an affair with another woman.
