Rita Waeni, a 20-year-old student at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agricultural Technology (JKUAT), was found killed in a rented apartment in Roysambu. The police have identified two Nigerians as primary suspects in the brutal crime.
One of the suspects reportedly shared with the police that he purchased a hatchet online for self-protection. The shocking news emerged on Sunday, January 14, leaving Kenyans in disbelief.
Investigations into the matter revealed that the suspects were in the country illegally, with one having an expired passport and the other lacking any proper documentation justifying his presence. The police discovered a hatchet (axe), an abattoir knife, and at least six mobile phones and laptops during a search of the suspect’s residence.
The unfolding details highlight the tragic nature of the incident and raise questions about the circumstances surrounding the weapon purchase. As the investigation continues, the revelation from one of the suspects sheds light on a potentially distressing aspect of the case.
