A lecturer at Strathmore University has been arrested after allegedly beating his wife, leading to her death on January 1. Fredrick Onyango Ogolla, a lecturer at Strathmore Business School, was Wednesday charged at the Kibera Law Courts but did not take a plea as police applied to be allowed to detain him for 10 more days to enable them complete investigations. Police suspect that Dr Ogolla beat Margaret Gobi Mwachongo on the evening of December 31, 2017, at their Lavington home, leading to her death. Nairobi County Police Commander Japheth Koome said the couple had a disagreement before they engaged in a fight which resulted in the woman sustaining injuries. “She was taken to hospital unconscious but she succumbed to her injuries,” Mr Koome said earlier before the lecturer was arraigned. In a Facebook post, Dr Ogolla said: “To my friends on FB, what happened was too painful that I have been unable to believe and that’s why I didn’t update you, my lovely wife left me and went to the lord. It’s so hurting in as much as it is hard to express. RIP my love.” Although he did not mention the cause of her death, Dr Ogolla shared the couple’s pictures captioning them “Memories that I now miss, really painful”. The couple has a seven-week-old baby. Dr Ogolla has been serving as the Academic Director of MBA programmes, Director of the Institute of Strategy and Competitiveness and Senior Lecturer of Strategy and Decision Making at the Strathmore Business School. He is also a part-time professor at various universities and colleges in and outside Kenya and works as a consultant on strategy formulation and execution as well as change management.
