Fresh Details Emerge in Kilifi Murder as Suspects Paid Sh 300 to Primary School Kids to Move Bodies

Fresh details have now emerged on how the bodies of three men killed in Kilifi were moved by primary school kids who got paid by suspects.

The revelation came after detectives presented their investigation after the court allowed them to detain 8 suspects in the murder of businessman Sidik Anwarali Sumra, his driver and a land agent.

Detectives told the police that the suspects paid Sh300 to school going kids to move the three bodies from where the crime scene happened to where their vehicles were packed, 800m away.

They further added that the main suspect, Robert Mganga Mwagosha, fled from his residence in Junju and even changed his mobile phone numbers to thwart any attempt to be trailed by police officers.

“He went further to register another mobile number in his wife’s name so that he could not be tailed and arrested by the police. It took the intervention of a multi-agency security team to arrest him in Nairobi,” Mr Dennis Isemek, a lead detective said in an affidavit.

Two of the suspects, Mr Karisa and Mzungu Shume Mwangemi, secured bond terms of Sh500,000 each after denying murder charges earlier on. The case is still ongoing.
