Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai has formed a special team to investigate the disappearance and murder of four people who went missing in Kitengela over a week ago.

Mutyambai ordered the special team be constituted of officers from the Homicide Department of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

The IG has tasked the special team with the investigation after bodies of three of the four Kitengela men were mysteriously found in morgues located in Murang’a and Thika.

The police boss revealed that the team had already hit the ground running and is expected to update him on progress made in the investigation within a month.

This comes as police are yet to locate the fourth person after the bodies of his three colleague were found, and it remains unclear whether he suffered the same fate.

The body of 35-year old Elijah Obuong was recovered from Mathioya River in Murang’a County and delivered to Murang’a County Referral Hospital on April 20, same day as Imbai, whose body was found in a morgue in Thika, Kiambu County.

Jack Anyango Ochieng's body was the third to be found. 

Obuong, Benjamin Amache Imbai aged 30, 36-year-old Brian Oduor and Jack Anyango Ochieng, 37, went reported missing on April 19.

They had drunk and eaten nyama choma at Club Enkare in the afternoon before leaving together at around 3pm in a white Toyota Mark X registration KCQ 715C, which was later found abandoned close to 500 metres away.
