4 bodies recovered from a Gitaru abandoned vehicle - police

The four are suspected to have been killed elsewhere.

 

According to police officers, the men seem to “have been strangled before they were put into the saloon car and abandoned at the interchange.”

The car had been at the site since Wednesday morning when the owner of a nearby apartment called police to check on it.

When police arrived there, they found two bodies in the boot and two others in the back seat.

They were taken to the city mortuary as a probe was launched.

Sudanese victims

Meanwhile, the Milimani High Court has now exonerated Kenya’s security agencies from blame over the disappearance of South Sudanese political activists Samuel Dong Luak and Aggrey Idris Izbon.

Justice Luka Kimaru has ruled that the disappearance of the two can only be as a result of a criminal act of abduction by persons unknown to the police.

The court argued that no evidence had been presented from families of the two men to show that the government since their disappearance on January 23.

The families of the duo wanted the State to be compelled to explain their disappearance.

The two were allied to former South Sudan Vice President Riek Machar and worked in senior capacities.

Their families had stated that the only way they can get answers on their whereabouts is to question top police, immigration and intelligence bosses.

While terming it a criminal abduction, the judge said the government had nothing to gain from the disappearances.
