The case in which an Interior Ministry employee’s drink was spiked at a bar in Kenol, Murang’a County, on Sunday has taken a new twist after it emerged that the woman arrested over the incident is the victim’s wife.
Detectives had on Sunday arrested Alice Wangechi, 37, and recovered the man’s documents from her.
According to Maragua Sub-county police Commander Alexander Shikondi, the man was on Monday discharged from the hospital and headed to Kenol Police Station, where he confirmed that Wangechi is his long-time legal wife.
Wangechi was released afterwards.
The man is said to have walked to Small Villa Gardens in Kenol that evening accompanied by the woman with whom he had several drinks and made merry.
Around 11 pm, he passed out and the observant waiters noticed his woman companion gathering his belongings, which included ATM cards, identification cards, and cell phones.
The man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition while Wangechi was arrested and charged with stupefying charges.
