Another woman found murdered in Roysambu BNB

Airbnb Horrors in Nairobi"

In a troubling development, authorities in Nairobi are currently probing the mysterious demise of an unidentified woman, whose dismembered remains were found at an Airbnb residence in Roysambu. The unsettling series of events began when a male guest, responsible for booking the room, returned the key early on Sunday morning and then abruptly vanished.

Risper Muthoni, the manager of the Airbnb property, disclosed that the unknown suspect had secured the room on Saturday, January 13, at 3 p.m. According to the property’s policy, guests are entitled to an uninterrupted stay until the scheduled check-out time once payment is made. It wasn’t until Sunday morning that the gruesome discovery was made after the caretaker reported finding suspicious polythene bags and a blood-soaked bedsheet on the staircase.

Despite multiple attempts to get a response, Muthoni and her team entered the unlocked room where everything seemed normal, except for bloodstains at the door. Subsequently, they reported the incident at Kasarani police station. The police were provided with the suspect’s identity and relevant CCTV footage from a nearby location where he picked up the premises’ keys.

Law enforcement officers were observed handling polythene bags and a blood-soaked bedsheet on Sunday, believed to contain the remains of the deceased woman. Jimmy Kimari, the head of Kasarani Divisional Criminal Investigations, issued a stern warning about potential crackdowns on Airbnb operators lacking security cameras, urging them to maintain detailed guest records.

This discovery follows closely on the heels of the arrest of John Matara, a suspected serial offender accused of killing socialite Starlet Wahu inside an Airbnb in Nairobi’s South B area. Wahu’s lifeless body was found in a pool of blood inside the flat, with HIV test kits, used condoms, bhang, a bottle of alcohol, and a blood-stained kitchen knife – believed to be the murder weapon – recovered at the scene.

Reports suggest signs of a struggle between Wahu and her assailant, as the scene appeared bloody, disarrayed, and chaotic. Matara hastily left the premises on Thursday morning, wearing bloodstained clothes, and was apprehended at Mbagathi Hospital, where he was being treated for a stab wound to his stomach. Wahu was laid to rest on Saturday at her parents’ home in Ruai’s Kamulu area.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) stated on Sunday evening that investigations currently indicate a “possible serial sexual offender who thrives on blackmail to his victims.” This individual may be part of a criminal ring targeting women on dating sites and social media platforms.
