Two taxi drivers found brutally murdered in Muranga, Kikuyu

Tension is high in Muranga and Kikuyu after two taxi drivers were found brutally murdered on Tuesday.

In the first incident, Richard Ngugi from Gatundu South, who had been missing since November 13, was found acutely mutilated and his body dumped in Kabati area of Murang’a.

In Kikuyu, another body of was found on Wednesday inside his vehicle with the deceased yet to be identified.

Reports indicate that the taxi driver was hired by a client at Nairobi fire station, his work station, but was later found dead at Gitaru area.

The family of 36-year-old Ngugi is grieving with his untimely and uncertain death after he went missing when on duty.

Other reports also reveal that the suspects did not steal anything leaving behind the vehicle which was abandoned in a car wash in Buruburu.

According to Ngugi’s family and friends, the deceased seemed fine during the day with his wife confirming that she last spoke to him some minutes to 7pm.

He promised to get home early for supper but did not show up and efforts to call him through his mobile number were futile since his line had gone off, said a remorseful Wangari.

His father Edward Waithaka said he had raised his son with good morals and bestowed a lot of expectation in him.

The incident, which was confirmed by Gatundu OCPD Bernard Muli, said they towed the vehicle from Nairobi to the police station to consolidate the reports.

One person, who was arrested after he was found washing the vehicle after it was tracked, is helping police with investigations.

The police boss also called on taxi operators within the trading centers to start taking inventory of their clients and that will reduce crime in the sector.

Elsewhere a 68-year-old woman and her son, 40, who had been reported missing for the past four days, have been found dead under unclear circumstances at Gacatha Village in Kirinyaga County.

Confirming the incident, Mirichi Senior Assistant Chief Margaret Wambui Muchira said the two, whose bodies were found in a pit latrine, were last seen in a bar at Kianjiru shopping centre.
