    IN SUMMARY

    Police say the athlete had quarrelled with his wife moments before the fatal fall.

    A woman friend with whom Wanjiru had been drinking is being held by police.

    Olympic marathon champion Samuel Wanjiru has died after apparently falling from the top floor of his home in Nyahururu, central Kenya.
    According to the police, the 2008 Beijing Olympic champion died from injuries sustained after jumping from top floor of his home in Nyahururu town at about 1am local time.


    News of the death spread like bushfire in the town and by the morning many people among them athletes had thronged the Nyahururu district hospital mortuary where the body was lying.

    The athletics champion was said to have jumped from his house at the Muthaiga estate in Nyahururu. Police said there was a quarrel between the runner and his wife Triza Njeri moments before he leaped to his death.

    Nyandarua police chief Jasper Ombati said Wanjiru had come home at 11pm with a female friend after a social evening before the wife unexpectedly showed up moments later.

    Mr Ombati said the runner was pronounced dead on arrival at the Nyahururu district hospital where he had been rushed by relatives.

    Bleeding

    Relatives found him lying on the concrete floor bleeding through the mouth and ears.

    "Doctors at the district hospital tried to resuscitate him in vain," said Mr Ombati.

    His female friend was being held at Nyahururu police station where she is helping police with investigations. The wife and a guard also recorded statements.

    A huge crowd milled around the home by day break but the police had condoned off the area.

    The sports hero was set to appear before a Nyahururu court on May 23 where he is charged with being in possession of an illegal fire arm.

    In March, he had a sigh of relief after his wife and a guard, William Masinde, withdrew assault charges against him before the same court.

    Smatta,

    wasnt this guy having divorce issues with his wife?

    This thing is just so sad especially when you note the fact that the dude had a promising career ahead of him. Kisha
    the statement that he had quarellled with his wife before his death!

    Stress zengine ni za kukalia mbali kama moto.

    Wakuu,

    Inasemekana njemba ilikutwa na 'barmedi' chumbani kisha my wife wake akatia kufuli kwa nje..sifahamu kwa makusudio gani.

    Sasa kama jamaa alikua amelewa nadhani alikua anajaribu kutoka na dirishani kisha labda akateleza maana
    kulikua na kijimvua kidogo.

    Dah!...huzuni mtindo mmoja!

    AB, jama ni multi millionaire, hajasoma vizuri, anapenda pombe na wanawake kwa sana, na alioa akiwa mchanga sana (i think 22), to me this is a recipe for disaster. nimesoma kwa blogs zingine kuwa bibi wake alimfumania nyumbani akiwa na call girl kwenye matrimonial home yao, kisha Wanjiru akaanza kumtolea noma, kwa ile uwoga yule bibi akamfungia toka nje kwa kuwa wanjiru was abit violent after hitting the bottle. Nadhani kwa hasira, akajaribu kutoka pale nyumbani akitumia balcony, hapo ndipo aka defy gravity and fell to his death. He had it coming bro, it was either him or the wife, one had to die, coz kuna time wanjiru alitaka ku shoot yule bibi na AK bana.

    Nimeskia bbc kuwa jamaa alifumaniwa na mpenz wake akiwa na msichana mwingine ghorofani! Mpenz wake alimaindi sana hadi akamfungia wanjiru mlango kwa nje akimwambia kuwa anaenda polisi! Wanjiru alijaribu kumsihi msichana asiende polisi akashindwa ndipo alipoamua kuruka dirishani/balcony ili amuwahi msichana wake asiende polisi. Aliporuka aliruka vibaya,so akadondoka na kupata majeraha makubwa kichwani! Inasemekana hakutaka mpenz wake asiende polisi kwani aliogopa maovu yake yasijulikane,vile vile kesho yake alikuwa na safari ya marekani so polisi wangeweza kumzingua hasisafiri

    Kuna uwezekano huyu Wanjiru ameuwawa kwa kutupwa kutoka ghorofani. Mke wake ni mkorofi sana na nakumbuka walikuwa na ugomvi mkubwa sana mwaka jana, to the extent kwamba certain media waliandika Wanjiru kakamatwa kwa kumuua mkewe. Ukitilia maanani ana hela na mali zenye thamani kubwa sana, there's a real possibility he was setup and murdered by his wife. He's a just a tiny, thin, little marathon runner, kwa hiyo kutupwa kutoka ghorofa ya pili could prove (as it surely has) very fatal.

    Ndo maana mimi nafikiri kwamba huna haja ya kumchunguza sana mpenzi (mke) wako (mfano kaa mbali na simu yake, kaa mbali na wambea) unless unataka kuachana nae so unatafuta sababu. Naamini huyo mke wake anajuta kwa alichokifanya cha kufuatilia nyendo za mme wake na kumfungia baaada ya kumfumania. Ukiona huwezi kuvumilia matendo ya mwenzako, una kaa pembeni maana huwa haisaidii, zaidi inampa jeuri ya kuendelea kufanya ndivyo sivyo, imagine star mwenye mke nyumban anachukua barmaid na kumleta ktk nyumba na kitanda anacholala na mkewe. Kuna mapenzi tena hapo? RIP Wanjiru.

    Wanjiru was also mine, woman claims


    [​IMG]


    NAIROBI, Kenya, May 16 - A fresh twist has emerged on the late marathoner Samuel Wanjiru's love life, after a 25-year-old woman in Nakuru came out to claim that she was his second wife.


    Judy Wambui who says she is five months pregnant with the athlete's baby told journalists on Monday that Wanjiru passed by her home at White House area on the Nakuru-Nyahururu road at about 8pm on Sunday night.

    He passed by her house on his way from Eldoret, where he was undergoing training.

    "He was supposed to be at the training camp for a month without taking a break but he told me that he was needed in Nyahururu urgently," she said.

    Amid periodical tearful breakdowns, Ms Wambui narrated how Wanjiru, who seemed happy and settled had promised to return and spend the night with her after solving "the pressing issues at his Nyahururu home."

    "He was here for about an hour and I could not escort him to the car because it was drizzling. He stood on the verandah and told me... let me go, we will talk when I come back," she said.

    "He also told me not to switch off my phone as he would call when he was almost here."

    She said the athlete did not divulge details about the emergency but promised to give her details when he returned.

    "I was still waiting for him when his cousin called me at 3am to inform me about the death. I was shocked. He was happy as usual, there were no indications of depression," said a tearful Ms Wambui.

    The former receptionist at a local hotel said they had been together with the 2009 Beijing Olympics marathon champion for five years since she finished her O-Level education at Laikipia High School.

    She said Wanjiru had big plans for her unborn child.

    "He told me to resign from work two years ago and promised to establish a business for me after I deliver. Our child was to be delivered at an expensive hospital and all plans had been put in place," she added.

    "We had visited an insurance company to start a premium for our unborn child and we were given an appointment. It is unfortunate that he has gone before the arrival of a child that he promised to love unconditionally," she lamented.

    Ms Wambui said that Wanjiru visited her parents last December and agreed on how he was going to pay dowry.

    The woman who is due in September said they had plans to wed at the District Commissioner's office in December after visiting Wanjiru's parents.

    "He had also promised to buy me a home and move me out of this rented house before the arrival of our baby," she added.

    She described Wanjiru as a caring and loving husband who was humble and loving to all the people he met.

    "He treated my friends as his own only a while after their initial meeting them. I have lost an invaluable partner," said Ms Wambui.
