Peter Mwangi Njenga/Ole Sankale has been identified as the possible murderer.

The man, according to DCI investigations, is a convicted criminal who was arrested in 1996 for accounts of theft and also arrested in 2003 for multiple accounts of rape and murder. This made him to be convicted and was given a death sentence at Kibera law courts. Jennifer Wambua was also killed in a heinous way after being raped. This, according to DCI, is a pattern and signature of how the man conducts his crimes.

In 1996, he was charged with stealing and was further charged three times with the offences of robbery with violence and rape. In January 15th 2003, he was convicted and sentenced to death at Kibera Senior Resident’s Magistrate Court," read the post.
