But now Mwende claims her estranged mother coached her to frame her father in order to get her hands on the family’s land as well as chase a second wife Mr Wambua had moved in with after their separation.
“She was not happy about the second wife and the trick was to have me frame my father so that she could chase the second wife and also sell family land while my father is locked in prison. She didn’t succeed,” says Mwende.
However, her mother, Ms Nzilani, denies the claims of ill motive against the second wife, who she says had been in a relationship with her husband before she came into the picture. She also refutes that she wanted to sell the land as alleged.
Mr Wambua, on the other hand, maintains that he harbours no hard feelings towards his wife. He says he has already forgiven her and is ready to meet with Ms Nzilani.
However, Ms Nzilani says she does not want anything to do with him and has nothing to apologise for.
