Police in Lamu have arrested the boyfriend to Tecra Muigai- the late daughter of Keroche Breweries CEO Tabitha Karanja- as probe into her death gains momentum.
Omar Lali has been arrested by detectives from the Homicide Unit after giving conflict accounts of the circumstances that lead to the death of his lover.
Sources say detectives are following several leads after they picked inconsistencies with reports of how Tecra, who was the Head of Innovations and Strategy at Keroche Breweries met her death.
The two had been living together at Shela in Lamu since the start of April.
Lali first said Ms Muigai had tumbled down the stairs and later changed his account to say she had tripped in the bathroom, none of which rhymed with the accounts of those who rushed her to hospital hence leading to his arrest.
A friend of Tecra reportedly found her lying unconscious at the apartment she was living in with her boyfriend with blood oozing from her mouth.
“It was on Tuesday last week when one of our friends found her in a coma in the house. By that time, her boyfriend was still asleep in the house. We had to wake him up. He was in shock after finding out that she was immobile,” a friend of hers is quoted by the Daily Nation.
Tabitha Karanja, her mother, sent a private helicopter to pick Ms Muigai from the Manda airport after a call by her daughter’s but she, unfortunately, succumbed while receiving treatment.
According to Citizen Digital, Mrs. Karanja was opposed to the one-year relationship between her daughter and her man.
