High Court has ordered a prime suspect in the murder of former acting communications director at National Land Commission (NLC) officer Jennifer Wambua to undergo a mental test.

High Court judge, Justice David Kimei said the mental assessment is to ascertain whether Peter Mwangi Njenga alias Sankale is fit to stand trial.

The judge also forwarded Sankale’s case file to Kajiado High Court where the suspect will appear for plea taking on May 26.

The suspect, whom police describe as a serial killer is to be remanded at Kajiado GK Prison until the said date.

The charge against Sankale states that "between March 12 and 13, 2021 at Veterinary Farm-Ebulbul in Kajiado North Sub County, jointly with others not before the court, murdered Jennifer Itumbi Wambua."

The suspect was driven to Machakos for arraignment after it turned out that there was no judge available in Kajiado High Court to deal with the matter.

The deceased, Wambua went missing after reporting to her office at National Lands Commission (NLC) on March 12 this year and her body was later found dumped in Ngong Forest the following day.
