The Exposé Journalist Gatonye Gathura Wrote That Allegedly Led to His Brutal Murder

Veteran journalist Gatonye Gathura was found dead along Naivasha-Mai Mahiu road before his body got identified in Naivasha Sub County Referral Hospital mortuary a month after he was reported missing.

According to detectives, Gathura was in possession of land files and intended to write an expose before he met the cruel death. He was also receiving death threats believed to be from those who didn't want the exposé.

Through a preliminary investigation by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Gathura wanted to do an exposé on the land dispute in the Ewaso Kedong area, a border between Narok and Nakuru Counties.

Detectives are now probing whether the crucial documents are directly connected to the death of the journalist and those behind the murder.

“We are treating his death as murder. We suspect he was killed elsewhere and the body dumped in Naivasha,” Naivasha Sub County Police Commander, Samuel Waweru, stated.
