Efforts to identify the body of a middle-aged woman whose body parts were found dumped in Naivasha early last month have hit the wall.
Fingerprints collected by police and taken to the registrar of persons have failed to match any on their records further complicating the bizarre murder.
Some of the body parts were found dumped in the Kabati estate and the others near the town sewerage plant with investigations indicating that the deceased was murdered elsewhere.
Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru has called on members of the public whose kin was missing to visit the local mortuary and help identify the victim.
“THE VICTIM IS AROUND 19 YEARS OLD AND WE SUSPECT THAT SHE HAD NOT REGISTERED FOR AN ID AND THAT IS WHY HER FINGERPRINTS ARE MISSING FROM THE REGISTRAR OF PERSONS,” HE SAID.
Meanwhile, police in Naivasha is seeking a truck driver who made off with fertilizer worth millions of shillings during a robbery along the Naivasha-Mai Mahiu road.
During the Wednesday night incident, the driver working in cahoots with other men managed to offload the fertilizer that was meant for Western Kenya into another trailer.
It was not until Thursday morning that the partially empty truck was discovered abandoned along the busy highway before it was towed to Naivasha police station.
In the past police have accused some drivers of working with highway robbers in stealing various forms of cargo mainly electronics destined for nearby countries.
In the latest incident, the driver parked near Longonot town claiming that the trailer had developed a mechanical breakdown.
A police source said that later in the wee hours of Thursday morning, a group of youths moved in and offloaded part of the fertilizer before fleeing.
The OCPD Samuel Waweru confirmed the incident saying that it was a matter of time before they caught up with the driver.
“IN NEARLY ALL THE CASES INVOLVING HIGHWAY ROBBERIES ALONG THE NAIVASHA-MAI MAHIU ROAD, WE HAVE COME TO LEARN THAT DRIVERS ARE INVOLVED,” HE SAID.
He said that they had heightened their patrols along major roads noting that PSVs had adhered to the law in terms of observing the curfew hours.
