Roysambu Killing

20-year-old woman whose dismembered body was discovered at a residential apartment in Nairobi’s Roysambu area

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives have unmasked the area where the main suspect in the gruesome murder of JKUAT student Rita Waeni Muendo used to stay.

According to a detective who spoke in confidence to one of the leading local dailies, the main suspect was traced to Ruaka in the days leading to the incident.

The detective noted that the killer had also spent half of the day in Ruaka on the same day he met his victim, a clear indication that it was likely his area of residence.

He would then go to Roysambu where he booked an Airbnb apartment along TRM Drive.

Rita Waeni Muendo’s family said the 20-year-old left her aunt’s residence in Syokimau to meet with a friend.

Her father would later receive a message delivered from her phone number on Sunday at about 5:00am, demanding a ransom of Ksh. 500,000 within 24 hours to secure her release.

The family then reported the matter to the police and DCI for investigations.

The body parts of the student, who was due to join her fourth year of university, were discovered inside a trash bag in an Airbnb apartment in TRM Drive, Roysambu, by the caretaker on Sunday.

Her head was however missing.

Detectives are still searching for Ms Muendo’s head and her personal belongings including her clothes and mobile phone.

On Tuesday, police arrested a male foreign national at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on suspicion of being involved in the murder.

The suspect was travelling using a Mozambican passport and was intercepted before boarding a plane after he reportedly raised suspicion.

He was interrogated at the airport before being transferred to the Kasarani Police Station pending identification.

The macabre killing of a young woman at an Airbnb in Nairobi continues to send shockwaves across the country.

Mutilated body parts of a 24-year-old woman were found stashed at a dustbin in Roysambu on Sunday, January 14. This was just a day after she checked into a rented apartment with an unidentified man, believed to be a Nigerian.

The woman, who has been identified by her family, was lured to her death through Instagram, with the guy promising her a good time.

Kenyans have taken to social media to not only grief the untimely demise of the university student but also to ask why Nigerian criminals are allowed to roam Nairobi carefree.

Roysambu, coincidentally the scene of the macabre killing, is a hotspot for Nigerian men, who spent their time committing online crimes and having good times with young Kenyan women.

The Roysambu murder is not the first crime to be linked to a Nigerian man. Former Interior CS Fred Matiang’i is on record questioning the presence of Nigerian men in Kenya.

In 2019, Matiang’i accused Nigerian men of confusing Kenyan girls to marry them.

“Drug dealers have come to Nairobi and they have confused our girls. They live with them and when police come to arrest them (drug dealers), they claim they are married to a Kenyan,” the no-nonsense CS said at the time.

Matiang’i led a crackdown on illegal immigrants, deporting hundreds of West Africans who were allegedly engaging in crime in Nairobi.

In a chilling revelation, Police have learned that the tragic demise of a 24-year-old university student at an Airbnb in Roysambu was orchestrated through Instagram.

Exclusive information obtained by Dailytrends unveils the gruesome details of the incident.

The lifeless and mutilated remains of the young woman were discovered inside a dustbin on a fateful Sunday morning, just a day after she had checked into the apartment accompanied by an unidentified man.

Sources indicate that the victim, whose identity remains undisclosed due to ongoing investigations and at the request of her grieving family, exclusively communicated with her assailant through Instagram. The assailant deliberately withheld other contact details, seemingly aware of the sinister nature of his motives.

Details extracted from the private conversations, which we are bound not to disclose online, suggest that the victim was enticed from her home in Syokimau to TRM along Thika Road on a Saturday evening. The assailant, assuring her of a pleasant time, persuaded her to rendezvous at the bus stage in TRM.

Expressing skepticism at one point, the victim questioned the true intentions of her conversant, explicitly asking, ‘Do you want to kill me?’ The assailant vehemently reassured her that his sole purpose was to share a good time.

Departing from home on Saturday afternoon, the young woman informed her parents that she was meeting her cousin. Throughout her journey from Mombasa Road to Thika Road, she provided regular updates to her ominous counterpart.

The unidentified assailant directed her to await him at the TRM stage, specifying his attire for easy identification. Their meeting point marked the beginning of a tragic sequence, leading to their check-in at a pre-booked Airbnb.

The man, believed to be of West African origin, made the reservation using an Airtel number registered to a woman. Despite being captured on CCTV, he managed to conceal his identity with a cap and sunglasses.

Law enforcement suspects that he may have drugged the young lady, engaged in sexual assault, and subsequently dismembered her body using a hacksaw.

The discarded body parts were callously disposed of in a nearby dustbin, while he absconded with the victim’s head. The police are currently working diligently to ascertain the identity of the perpetrator.
