makueniPolice are investigating an incident in which a 38-year-old boda boda operator was brutally murdered by unknown assailants and his body dumped in Makongo forest, Makueni County.

Makueni Police Boss Philip Opiyo said Darius Munyaliti’s severely mutilated body was discovered yesterday morning by members of the public who informed the area chief Mr. Jonathan Mwania.

Opiyo said the boda boda operator who had gone missing for three days allegedly left his Engavo home in Ukia location last Friday at night to meet his estranged wife at Mukuyuni market.

He said police are trying to establish the motive of the killing adding that the wife is expected to record a statement to aid police in the investigations.

Munyaliti’s brother John Kilonzo said that the deceased received a call from an unidentified man on Friday at around 9pm asking him to meet the wife who resides in Nairobi at the local market.

Kilonzo said that his brother hired a fellow boda boda rider to take him to meet his spouse and had been missing since then.

The body has been taken to the County Referral Hospital Mortuary awaiting post mortem.
