Police in Nairobi has launched investigations into the murder of two brothers who were reported missing two weeks ago.
According to their father Mr. John Nderitu his two sons Johnson Karuga, 26, and his brother Kelvin Kimani, 24, went missing after they were last seen alive on the night of September 4, 2022, at a local club in the Kamulu area.
He added that his family has been searching for their two boys since they went missing.
“I am told that my two sons went missing after enjoying drinks at a club in Kamulu. I was shocked when I was told that their bodies had been found dumped in Joska,” Mr. Nderitu said.
According to their father, they started tracing their whereabouts after noticing that their phones were switched off after watching football at a nearby local in Kamulu.
Their bodies were discovered by area residents under a bridge in the Joska area a week after they were reported missing.
It is then that they alerted the police who rushed to the scene and transferred the body to City Mortuary.
“We were then alerted by the police to go and identify the two bodies at the City Mortuary only to find that they were the ones,” he said.
He wondered why anyone would want to kill his sons who he described as close.
They later transferred their bodies from the City Mortuary to Tigoni Hospital in Limuru, Kiambu County.
Haki Africa Executive Director Hussein Khalid said that the bodies had injuries and they suspect they had been assaulted using a blunt object.
“I request detectives attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to expedite investigations into the murders and ensure that the murderers who ended the lives of the two brothers are arrested,”
He also promised to walk with the family in every step during this hard time.
