Two suspects, Julius Mogoi and Mugo Gathii, both employees at Osinde's farm, have been arrested following the discovery of crucial evidence.

Julius Mogoi, one of the suspects, was apprehended after witnesses reported seeing him driving Osinde's black Toyota Land Cruiser in Kisii County, merely two days before the vehicle was found abandoned in Transmara West, Narok County.

Mogoi's sudden return to Nyakoe, Kisii County, three years after fleeing the village, surprised residents who noticed an assortment of household goods inside the car.

Mogoi had earlier claimed that his boss had sent him to deliver an undisclosed sum of money to a woman in Kericho.
