By Peterson Githaiga | June 21st 2020
Police in Kitengela are looking for a man suspected to have strangled his girlfriend and dumped her body on the road.
The suspect reportedly wrapped the body in a gunny bag then hired boda boda operators to take it to a bush, but they left it on the road.
Isinya police boss Kinyua Mugambi confirmed the incident saying "my officers have already launched a manhunt for the suspect".
According to locals, the suspect strangled his lover on Friday night and hired a boda boda operator at 5am on Saturday to take it to a bush in Kyangombe area.
The boda boda operator disagreed on the terms and invited yet another operator who also did not accept the man's terms.
"I heard them arguing over the luggage. One of the two riders was saying he will not carry it while the other pleaded with him to assist,’’ said a neighbour to the suspect.
After the argument, the riders are said to have hurriedly left the scene with the "luggage", which they abandoned on the road.
"My officers rushed to the scene and when they opened the bag they were shocked to find it contained a woman's body," said Mugambi.
The body was taken to the City Mortuary for a postmortem examination to determine the cause of death.
