NAIROBI: Two Indians who went missing in Kenya in July have been killed by the disbanded directorate of criminal investigations unit, a close aide of President William Ruto claimed.
Dennis Itumbi said in a Facebook post that Zulfiqar Ahmad Khan and his friend Mohamed Zaid Sami Kidwai were part of the Kenya Kwanza digital campaign team, and contributed immensely to the success of Ruto’s campaign. Khan, former COO of Balaji Telefilms, and his friend Kidwai went missing 90 days ago along with taxi driver Nicodemus Mwania, a local, from Mombasa Road in July.
According to The Nation, Itumbi said the evidence suggests that the two were in a cab that was blocked by a DCI unit. He further said that Khan, Kidwai and their taxi driver were all dragged into another car and killed in what he called the ‘killer waiting bay’, a container used to kill Kenyans at a police station in the past. “After three days, the trio were put in a vehicle and sent towards Aberdares, 150km from the capital Nairobi,” Itumbi was quoted.
Indian government has been in touch with the Kenyan authorities on the matter, the ministry of external affairs had told media in New Delhi last week.
