'Maajabu Duniani' - How A Married Woman Faked Kidnapping To Have A Good Time With Her Secret Lover

After DCI detectives learned of the hidden plot, they arrested a married woman who eloped with a younger lover and claimed to have been kidnapped. Jane Wairimu Ndung'u vanished on September 17, according to reliable reports released on Thursday, September 23. Her husband, Brian Mutuku, is concerned about her whereabouts.

On the fatal day, Mutuku received a call from his wife claiming to have been kidnapped by unknown individuals wanting Sh200,000 in ransom, according to Directorate of Criminal Investigations chairman George Kinoti. "She claimed she was kidnapped by unknown persons who demanded Sh200,000 in ransom," Kinoti explained.


The woman claimed she was kidnapped while strolling down Loita Street in Nairobi's core business district. Her husband then filed a missing person complaint with DCI at the Embakasi Police Station. Later, DCI sleuths discovered Wairimu in the city center on Loita street, where his panic-stricken husband attempted to seek assistance. "However, while the investigators were on the lookout for the suspects, Wairimu's family and spouse raised Sh17,000 and gave it to the accused kidnappers," Kinoti added.

Wairimu had eloped with a cab driver to his one-roomed residence in Malaa, where they were enjoying the Sh17,000, unknown to the family members.


Her relatives had set up a WhatsApp group to raise funds for her release. According to the DCI, a further Sh40K was given on Monday, and the two traveled from Malaa to Mtito-a-Ndei to withdraw the money, ostensibly to divert the attention of the detectives pursuing them.

Mogire chose his other lover, a student at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, after collecting the second sum of "ransom," and housed the two ladies in his Malaa room until they were detained on Monday. Mogire reportedly picked up her 21-year-old lover from Juja in a different vehicle than the one used with Wairimu to avoid arrest, according to the cops.

"To escape detection, Mogire changed his car, picked up his main girlfriend from the Juja-based university, and accompanied her to the one-roomed residence where he had been staying with Wairimu since her supposed disappearance," DCI stated in a statement.


On Monday, the three were apprehended in Sagana and escorted to Embakasi Police Station, where they will be arraigned today (Thursday). "It's still a mystery how Mogire persuaded his campus girl to stay and play ball despite the fact that she wasn't part of the original plan," Kinoti added. Wairimu said after interrogation that she caused her kidnapping to avoid creditors who had been on her tail since she lost her job.

The DCI has now issued a warning to Kenyans about impersonating abductions, claiming that the suspects waste police resources that should be spent on more serious crimes.
