Wangari was charged with driving under the influence offense and was taken to Beaufort Country detention.
Earlier Wangari had stated that were it not for a daughter who kept on encouraging her to reduce drinking she would have died a long time ago. According to the news, she was the secretary of the Kenyan diaspora Foundation. Moreover, she was a very active person on social media. She had started several groups one of them being the original Kilimani mums, an Uncensored group that was deleted by Facebook over policy issues.
It is said that the police found her the following morning lying on the floor coughing blood and she died upon reaching the hospital. The doctors said that that she died from the critical injuries she sustained in the crash. Many have been angered by the fact that the police arrested her after a crash and took her straight to the cell instead of taking her to the hospital for a medical check-up. Many are demanding justice for Wangari.
