Man, daughter arrested for murder of Laikipia businessman





A man and his daughter have been arrested in connection with the murder of a businessman in Nanyuki, Laikipia county.

Charles Macharia and his daughter Jane Wanjiku, a waitress at a hotel in Nanyuki, were arrested at a petrol station in Kirwara, Gatanga Constituency by detectives last evening.

Police said the suspects were found with a vehicle stolen and electronics stolen from the deceased.

The body of the businessman George Gachibi was found lying in a pool of blood on Tuesday at 9am by his employees who had gone to check on him at his house after he failed to answer to their calls and had not reported at his business.


The main door to his rented house had been broken and left open by the assailants believed to have murdered him.

Laikipia County Criminal Investigations Officer Peter Muinde said police traced the car signal to a place called Kirwara in Thika Sub-County, where they nabbed the two suspects.

According to Muinde, the arrested woman is believed to have been the girlfriend of the deceased as they were often seen together and she would frequent his house.
