Gang Behind Varsity Student Stabbing Arrested

Written By Gerald Gekara  📝

DCI sleuths have arrested two suspects in the brutal murder of Joel Juma, a Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) student who was murdered two days ago. 

Undercover agents apprehended Joseph Muchiri, alias Agent, 22, and Paul Mbatha, 20, this morning after a manhunt was launched.

Their arrest came after a thorough forensic examination of the scene by Crime Scene experts from the DCI National Forensic Laboratory, which led the detectives to the suspects’ identities. 

The first suspect was apprehended in Kiandutu, Thika town, and the second was apprehended in Gachororo, Juja district.

Special teams of detectives from the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau (CRIB) were dispatched yesterday to augment the Juja-based detectives in a manhunt for the bloodthirsty killers in the 2am incident that engulfed the JKUAT fraternity and its environs in a somber mood. 

The thugs, who are part of a gang fleeing an ongoing operation in the larger Eastlands area, thought they had found a safe haven in Gachororo, but that is no longer the case. A comprehensive operation is currently underway to engage them tooth and nail.
