Police in Gilgil sub-county have recovered more body parts of a flower farm worker who went missing under unclear circumstances in Naivasha two months ago.
Area sub-county police Commander John Onditi said the legs and one hand of the victim were recovered dumped in a pit latrine at Industrial area estate after a three-hour operation led by sleuths from Gilgil and staff from the Nakuru county fire department.
Speaking on phone, Onditi confirmed that they were holding two suspects in relation to the murder of the flower farm worker who were helping the police with the recovery exercise.
“We have so far arraigned the two suspects in court where we sought 14 more days to finish our investigations and the only missing part now is one hand,” he said.
The duo was charged with the beastly murder of Sarah Nafula Pallang’a who went missing on December 9, 2020.
After the family reported the incident in Gilgil, police are said to have mounted a search leading to the arrest of her boyfriend and an accomplice.
The two are said to have led the police officers to an abandoned structure last week where the skull and torso of the deceased were recovered.
According to an uncle of the deceased Dickson Pallang’a, they could not bury the recovered body parts as this was against their culture.
He said that they were still trying to come to terms with the murder of the mother of two who had been cohabiting with the main suspect for over a year.
Speaking at the scene, Pallang’a narrated how the boyfriend first lied that the deceased had left the country for Dubai before police unearthed the truth.
