Cops probe mur­der of Limuru trader

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Po­lice in Limuru con­stituency have in­ten­si­fied the search for the killers of 46-year-old busi­ness­man James Chege.

He was mur­dered on Mon­day night in Ngarariga vil­lage, Bibiri­oni ward.

His body was found at the road­side by passersby on Tues­day, po­lice boss Sa­muel Obara said. He had head in­juries.

Chege’s body was taken to Up­lands Fu­neral Home, where a post-mortem will be con­ducted. “We are in­ves­ti­gat­ing who killed him and why. We shall also es­tab­lish how he was mur­dered,” the OCPD told the press yes­ter­day.

Chege’s brother John Ka­mau sus­pected he was tor­tured by the killers be­fore he was hit on the back of the head.

“He had no clothes on. We sus­pect he must have been tor­tured. He died a painful death,” he said in tears.

The fam­ily sus­pects that Chege was fol­lowed by the killers while go­ing home.

Res­i­dents say a gang that was ex­pelled from the area some years ago is back.
