On September 17, 2017, Caroline Wanjiku Maina started her life as a self-employed businesswoman. Little did she know that her ambition to prosper and impatient business partners would be the reason she loses her life.
She marked that milestone of her life with a motivational caption that read,
“Self-employed and loving it.”

The 38-year-old mother of two loved her life and revelled in her role of being a caregiver for her children. On her last mother’s day, she celebrated herself on Facebook writing,
“Happy mothers day to me. Motherhood is a full-time job, it has taught me to love, to be patient and above all, to know that God has trusted me with Two lives!”
Last month, Caroline’s body was discovered in a thicket in Kajiado, died from injuries to the forehead and back of the head caused by blunt force.
A post-mortem conducted on her body revealed her killers also used a blunt object to injure her left hip, hand and wrist.

Her elder sister Rose Thogori said they were satisfied with the autopsy report.
“She died out of head injuries after being hit on the forehead and the back. She also had bruises on her hip and her eyes were not gouged out as previously thought owing to it being partially decomposed. They were still there,” she said.
Specimen from the liver and kidney, private parts, stomach and nail clippings were also picked for further testing.
They need toxicology tests to establish if she was also drugged before being killed.
One of Caroline’s Facebook posts read,
“Usually, it is darkest Before Dawn.”
The journey to find justice for Caroline’s brutal murder is underway. Her business partners were arrested and linked to her murder. The case is ongoing.
