The case in which slain witness Jennifer Wambua was to appear today has been adjourned to tomorrow (Thursday, March 18).

Milimani chief magistrate Francis Andayi said he is saddened by the unfortunate death of Wambua, a top official at the National Lands Commission.

The search for Wambua, the commission’s deputy director of communications, ended on Monday after her body was found at the City mortuary in Nairobi.

She had been missing since Friday.

Makueni MP Daniel Maanzo, a relative of the deceased, said Wambua’s body was found by a herdsman in Ngong on Saturday, a day after she went missing.

Moving forward, Andayi said there is a need to have the case heard in a physical court, adding, "In my many years of practice, I have not had such incident and it is important that the matter be mentioned in a physical court."

Wambua was to appear as a state witness in a Sh122.3 million fraud case.
