A body of an aspiring Member of County Assembly (MCA) has been found at the same spot where bodies of blogger Frank Obegi and his friends were discovered.
The body of Njiru MCA aspirant Joseph Njau Ng’endo was found dumped at Kijabe Forest, Kiambu County and has since been identified by his family.
According to a report in TV47, the family has been looking for the deceased since his mysterious disappearance last week.
A mortuary attendant at the City Mortuary said his body was brought to the morgue on Sunday, June 19 by a police vehicle.
“The body was brought by a police vehicle on Sunday and booked as unidentified. It has since been positively identified by the family who had reported him missing two days before,” Patrick Kibugi told the media.
The body had scars indicating that he might have been strangled to death.
Obegi was among four people who were tortured and murdered before their bodies were dumped in Kijabe Forest.
The bodies of Obegi and two of his friends were found dumped inside the forest on Monday, June 20 with the fourth body found dumped in Magadi, Kajiado County all with missing private parts.
The other three men are Elijah Omeka, Fred Obare and Moses Nyachae.
Lari OCPD Anderson Furaha said the three bodies discovered in Kijabe Forest were badly mutilated and partly eaten by wild animals.
“One of them had been partly eaten by wild animals. Their private parts had been amputated and it seems they died through strangulation. They had no identification documents and were naked,” Furaha said.
Reports online have indicated that Obegi and the three who have been identified as Elijah Omeka, Fred Mokaya and Mose Nyachae were involved in a syndicate that scammed people off their money.
A thread on Twitter alleged that their death was linked to a KSh 1 million cryptocurrency scam gone sour, adding that Obegi and Nyachae were almost lynched in Kasarani in 2020.
It is also alleged thagthe two were working alongside two others to scam unsuspecting jobless Kenyans seeking jobs abroad.
