‘Kama Movie’: Daily Nation Screaming Headline Becomes Laughing Stock

The Daily Nation’s main headline for Monday, January 16, titled “The Murder Plot” has a blockbuster feel. Simply screaming enough to attract the attention of the country.

Well, the story is long, stirring, and has whipped the country into a frenzy.

Actually, the narration depicts a blockbuster film – too real to be true.

The story features a Canadian-based Kenyan couple. Lucy Njeri Muhami and her husband Nelson Ndereba Njeru – both professional athletes – are the main cast.

The play begins in Toronto Canada on November 16, 2022, when Njeri packed her bags to catch a flight to Kenya for the holidays. They had agreed Njeru would later join her.

However, everything took twists and turns, and in the end, Njeri describes her visit to Kenya as a failed murder plot.

After landing at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), Njeri was picked up by a driver, who had been contracted by her husband to help her run errands for the two days she would be in Nairobi before traveling to their upcountry home in Embu. In the car was another passenger, who Njeri thought was her driver’s colleague.

However, when the Toyota van hit Mombasa road, Njeri claims the passenger turned against her and attempted to strangle her. He explained he and the driver were under instructions from her husband to kill her, collect all documents and money she had and then dump her body at Karura Forest.

The hitmen claimed they had been paid Ksh1.5 million for the assignment. She says she persuaded them to spare her life, and if they obliged, she would pay them Ksh2 million. They agreed after fetched $10,000 from her bag and gave them.

However, the deal was not complete. Therefore, her captors booked a hotel room for her in Mwiki where she was under their watch because she promised to complete the transaction the following day. They had breakfast at the hotel.

After keeping her end of the bargain, Njeri alleges she kept in touch with the hitmen and met several other times. In one of the meetings, the would-be-killers shared with her an audio clip in which her husband was allegedly communicating with them.

In a nutshell, the whole narrative is that Njeru plotted his wife’s murder with the motivation of inheriting their joint properties.

The majority of Kenyans are buying none of it. Firstly, only very foolish professional hitmen would negotiate with their target and thereafter agree to meet him/her.

Secondly, Karura Forest where they were asked to dump her body is a fenced area and often with moderate security presence most of the time. It is an open secret that no hitman can be oblivious to.

Thirdly, she claims she has convinced the hitmen to be her witnesses in the divorce case she filed after the incident. Kenyans believe those are not hitmen but rather her squad in the script.

“The headline is screaming as in screaming. But the story is not storying. There are too many gaps,” Shikuh Jane wrote.

Otieno Kaogo asked: “The hitmen even accepted to exchange contacts with her?”

Jane Mueni said: “Fake story. How do you go for breakfast with your would-be-murderers? Then keep meeting them?”

The Serious Crimes Unit of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) also believes there are many inconsistencies that cannot be ignored.
