Homicide detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations have arrested three suspects in connection with the death of one Augustus Mutuku Mwathe who met his death after allegedly being attacked by unknown assailants on February 2, 2021.

According to sources within the DCI the deceased is said to have been an influential political blogger, strategist and a grassroots mobilizer in Kibwezi East. He allegedly met his death after falling out with an aspiring candidate for a political seat in Kibwezi, in the forthcoming general elections.

DCI officers say that on the fateful evening before he was attacked, Mutuku had joined three friends, Charles Mulei, George Mutisya and Abed Musembiat Club DK in Mlolongo, for drinks

Among those arrested is the aspirant Amos Kyondu, Abdullahi Wako, an AP officer attached to CIPU in Kitengela and Abed Musembi, an employee of Kenya Power and Lighting Company based in Kitengela.  Detectives who have been on the case have so far arrested the three suspects, for being persons of interest in the murder.

 DCI says that on the fateful evening before he was attacked, Mutuku had joined three friends, Charles Mulei, George Mutisya and Abed Musembiat Club DK in Mlolongo, for drinks. At around 11 pm, Mulei left the club for his home. However, he was concerned about how Mutuku would get home since he didn’t have a car but Musembi offered to drop him since they all lived in Kitengela.

The deceased then called his girlfriend and told her that it won’t be long before he got home. He however never arrived home as he had mentioned to his girlfriend, efforts by the girlfriend to reach him on phone later in the night yielded no fruits. Instead, the girlfriend received a call from Mutuku the following morning, informing her that he had been attacked by unknown assailants and was at Shalom Hospital in Athi River, where he had been taken by a good Samaritan for medical treatment. She rushed to the hospital and found the boyfriend in pain, complaining of severe abdominal pain allegedly inflicted during the assault.  He later succumbed to his injuries
