Milcah Mwangi who was killed by her 50-year-old husband Albert Mwangi at Kiamumbi Estate, Kiambu on May 21 was a musician struggling to get a foothold in the industry.
She was not so popular gospel musician but church members at Deliverance Church in Zimmerman and Harvesters Global Church along Kiambu road where she worshiped together with Mwangi were familiar with her songs.
Milcah, 49 produced two songs in 2015 which are on Youtube but very few views. Her songs are Igai Riakwa (My Inheritance) and Camai (You taste).
A church friend said she performed mostly at church but was not popular in other events. she was largely known as a businesswoman.
Ironically, she sang about inheritance which is the issue that led to her death and that of her husband. The two had a troubled marriage, each accusing the other of plotting to kill the other to inherit their vast properties.
They had rental houses at Zimmerman, a home, housing agency businesses and cars but they often quarreled, separated and reunited. They reconciled in April but quarreled on the day he killed her then took poison and hanged himself.
The two were buried yesterday at Karurumo village in Kangema, Murang’a county. They left behind five children; three with Milcah and two with his first wife, now deceased.
