Globe Cinema Roundabout Nairobi

Police found the body of a university student was found dumped on the roadside at Globe Cinema Roundabout, Nairobi.

Reports indicated that the deceased,Peter Kahugi Maina, 23, appeared to have been strangled and hit with a blunt object in the head.

Another man believed to have been in the company of the deceased was also found next to the body of the university students and police believe the killers thought they had murdered him too.

Survivor says they were strangled

The survivor identified as James Kilonzo, 26 told police they were abducted from a popular club in Westlands in Nairobi, tortured and strangled before they were dumped at Globe Roundabout.

A team of police officers that were patrolling the area Sunday dawn was alerted of the presence of the bodies that had been dumped by a car.

When they arrived they found Kilonzo alive, mumbling and confused which they believe he may have been drugged.

Nairobi police boss Philip Ndolo stated: “He said their attackers thought he and his colleague were dead too before they were dumped there. We are still talking to him for more.”

Police visit club

Police visited the club where the two had been and interrogated staff where they learnt that the two were pushed out of the upper floor of the club, forced into a waiting car and taken to an unknown destination.

Ndolo said the deceased man had physical injuries to suggest torture while the survivor had bloodstains on his face.

Police are now relying on various cameras on the roads and structures to trace the movements of the car that dumped the two there.
