Ruai DCI officers recorded statements of the deceased’ two house helps last week, who told the police that their boss was last seen alive in the company of her ex-boyfriend.

The duo told the police that their boss asked them to take a walk in the estate as she held a meeting with the ex-boyfriend. When they returned that afternoon, they found the house on fire and it was then that they established that their boss was dead. The ex-boyfriend had taken off.
