Jessie Wangua, Acting Managing Director of Kumul Telikom Holdings was released from the Boroko cells on Friday (April 30) after initial investigative reports suggested that his wife died from a medical complication and not from injuries sustained in a domestic violence.
According to NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Gideon Ikumu, the post-mortem results found that she died through medical complications arising from an antenatal surgery.
Ikumu said Police now have evidence pin-pointing medical or professional negligence as the cause of death, and urged family on both sides to pursue further investigations through a separate complaint against the hospital authority.
The cause of death as per the post-mortem cannot be linked to murder by Mr Wangua as alleged by relatives of late Mrs Wangua, therefore, Police were unable to charge Mr Wangua.
The post-mortem was conducted with the attendance of several members from both Mr and Mrs Wangua’s family and Police Detectives.
All steps in the observation and findings in the post-mortem were explained by the doctor to parties while it was being carried out. This was done for the purpose of transparency.
