BY PAULYNE KATETHYA – The number of Mysterious killings in the Country has left many people tongue tied. Missing persons have been found dead at Morgues days after their disappearance while others going about their normal businesses murdered never to be seen by their friends and loved ones again.
The latest shocking incident is that of Mildred Odira. Mildred worked as a switchboard operator at the Nation Media Group seconded by
Foresight company. Her body was found at the City Mortuary after family and friends made frantic efforts to look for her after she went missing. Mildred was last seen on 29th January at 4am by security guards in Kariobangi South where she lived.
The Guards had called a taxi driver to take her to Ruaraka Uhai Neema hospital since she wasn’t feeling well and that was the last time she was seen alive. The taxi driver, Mr Davis Ochieng’, who had picked up Ms Odira on the fateful morning, told police in his statement that he took her to the hospital, waited for her for slightly over an hour before he decided to leave.
Detectives demanded to obtain CCTV footage from the hospital when the administration said they had not received a patient by that name.
Results from the post mortem indicate that the injuries she sustained on her forehead, cheeks and neck were inflicted while she was seated upright. The family also wants another post mortem done to determine whether she was sexually assaulted.
Mary Wambui Kamangara, 39
Just a week ago, the mutilated body of Mary Wambui Kamangara was found dumped in a dam near Mugutha estate in Juja constituency on January 26th . Police arrested Joseph Kori, the deceased’s husband and his alleged girlfriend, Judy Wangui following the murder.
It is believed that Mary and Wangui visited homeland inn, Thika Road in company of two men before Wambui was murdered inside the mistress’ apartment and her body dumped in a dam off Toll Station on Thika Road, next to Courtesy Beach Hotel. Investigations are still ongoing.
Monica Kimani. 28
Last year on 20th September, Monica Kimani, 28, a businesswoman, was found dead in a bathtub with her neck slit ear to ear at her Lamuria Gardens Apartment in Kilimani, Off Dennis Pritt Road
Joseph Kuria Irungu, Jacque Maribe’s fiancée was the first one to be arrested after witnesses at a police parade positively identified him as the last man seen walking out of Ms Kimani’s apartment on September 19. Citizen TV host, Maribe was also arrested as a suspect to the still ongoing case, but was later released on bond.
Sharon Otieno, 26
Sharon Otieno, a 26-year-old student at Rongo University in Migori County was gruesomely murdered and her body dumped in Kodera Forest. The incident attracted a lot of attention from people since she was Okoth Obado’s girlfriend, the current Migori Governor. It is believed that she was kidnapped, raped and stabbed three times in the neck, four times in the back and once in the left side of the abdomen, killing her seven-month unborn baby. Obado who held a Press Conference in Nairobi, with family by his side, distanced himself
from the murder saying he had ‘nothing and absolutely nothing’ to do with it. After spending 33 days in detention, he was released on bail, as other suspects remained in police custody. The case will be heard on May 6th
Questions still linger on people’s minds as to what happened to them, who was behind the killings and whether it should cause an alarm to other Citizens.
