The body of a police officer who went missing 19 days ago has been found in General Kago Road Funeral Home in Thika Level 5 Hospital on Monday (yesterday) evening.

Constable Stephen Kairu, who was attached to Gigiri Police Station, went missing on June 27.

According to records at the hospital, the body had been taken there by three traffic officers from Ruiru Police Station who had positively identified him.

His body is said to have been found in the middle of the road near Kahawa West’s Gulf petrol station where it is suspected to have been dumped, or hit by a dark Toyota Fielder whose driver did not stop.

Corporal Muktar, Constable Muchai and police driver Constable Aden collected the body and booked the report, Occurrence Book (OB) number 95/27/6/2019 at 8.55pm before taking the body to Thika Level 5 Hospital. Records at the hospital clearly indicated the names of the deceased officer.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the officer was last seen in Ruaka when his mobile phone was last active.

A day to his disappearance, he called his sister Miriam Wamaitha and hinted that he wanted to confide something in her.  He, however, did not deliver the message. He, however, did not deliver the message, and instead said he would go home and relay the crucial message face to face.

The family complained that even as they went to the station to follow up on the whereabouts of their kin, detectives did not seem concerned.

Some of the senior officers even insinuated that the deceased officer could have deserted duty.
