The family of Keroche Heiress Tecra Muigai, daughter of Keroche Breweries chairman Joseph Karanja and CEO Tabitha Karanja are remembering her, one year after her untimely demise
Honoring her sister’s death, Nero water CEO Anerlisa Muigai posted a video on her Instagram page and asked her fans to join her in remembering Tecra.
“Last Year a Day Like Today, My Sister Took Her Last Breathe. Please Let’s Send Tecra Some Good Energy By Commenting With Any Of These Emojis. May You Continue Resting In Peace My Dear Sister. I Miss You Very Much, “Anerlisa captioned the video.
Tecra Muigai died on May 2, 2020, after succumbing to head injuries from falling down a flight of stairs. Two days after her death, her lover, identified as Omar, was arrested and detained for 21 days. He was arrested and released just before he could take a plea. The 54-year-old man was released after the DPP applied to terminate the case.

“While we mourn the loss of a remarkable young lady, we also celebrate her life and hope that it serves as an example to young people around the world to work hard to make their dreams come true,” read a statement by Keroche breweries.
During an inquest into her death, Tecra’s house help told a Nairobi court that he used to be abusive to er
Anne Waithera told trial magistrate Zainab Abdul that she started working for the deceased in 2019 after leaving her job at a Naivasha hotel.
She and Tecra sparked a friendship that led to her employment as her house help at her Naivasha home, the court heard.
Waithera said that when Tecra introduced her lover to her mother, Tabitha Karanja, she (Tabitha) was not amused and decided to pay her a visit the next day.

“There was a day she said she was stressed. She had sent a photo to her mum to introduce him to her mother. She said mum was not happy and was against their relationship. Mum visited with the family but Tecra could not let her in,” Waithera said.
On the said day, she recounted, Omar disappeared into the bushes only to return in the evening without his phone. He had apparently thrown it into the lake for fear of being traced.
The deceased later met her family but quickly left for Lamu by bus with Omar. She called Waithera asking her not to report to work.
Tecra would later change her mind and ask Waithera and her driver, Eric Cheruiyot, to drive to the coastal town.
“We went to Kijani hotel where Omar and Tecra were. Omar was not happy that we were there and planned for our departure back. We traveled back with Cheruiyot,” she stated.
The couple would also return to Naivasha shortly after, Waithera said. It is then that Omar’s family started visiting him.
Once, Waithera said, Omar’s ex-wife and daughter paid them a visit. Tecra took care of their expenses but was unhappy that her boyfriend’s ex was also there. Tecra left for Nairobi.
“Omar’s ex also visited with the child. Tecra would leave for Nairobi. She was not happy since Omar was using her money to take care of a white woman. He never showed any care or affection to her,” Waithera said.
When she first started working for Tecra, Waithera said, she was going to get a Sh25,000 monthly stipend but as soon as Omar showed up, her salary reduced by Sh3,000.
“Surprisingly, end month I was paid Sh22,000 and when I asked her why she said Omar had said Sh25,000 was too much and she should be paid Sh22,000. I agreed,” Waithera said.
On the abuse accusations, Waithera told the court that sometimes she would find her boss crying and upon inquiry, Tecra would claim that Omar had beaten her.
Sometimes, the domestic worker testified, the couple slept in separate beds.
“Many times, when I reported in the morning, I would see Tecra crying and when I asked, she would say Omar had beaten her at night.
“When I cleaned the house in the morning, I realized they had slept in different beds and wine was splashed in the house. They used to fight at night. There were quarrels.”
Tecra’s brother, James Karanja, and his girlfriend, Victoria Marcela, testified that the relationship between the deceased and the beach boy was unconventional especially because she (Tecra) said she viewed him as a prophet.
“I asked Tecra what was her relationship with Omar and she said it was spiritual and saw him as a prophet. I found it very strange and became very worried,” Marcela said.
The inquest continues on May 4.
