Quoting well-placed sources, Citizen Digital reports that Mutinda left his house claiming to have an urgent meeting.

His wife tried to get details of the meeting from him to no avail as she attempted to convince him not to leave unsuccessfully.

She is reported to have gone a step further and even hidden the keys to the car but this too did not help.

Kenya Navy divers have retrieved his body as well as his Toyota Allion KBX 475B.

The vehicle, which was 6 meters deep in the sea was towed to Likoni police station.

Mutinda’s body was taken to Coast General Referral Hospital morgue, the mangled wreck of his vehicle was towed to Likoni Police Station.
