Kevin Kang’ethe escapes at Muthaiga police station ahead of extradition

By Antynet Ford

Kevin Kang’ethe, the man accused of murdering his girlfriend and later dumping her body in a car at an airport in Boston, US, has escaped from Muthaiga Police Station in Nairobi under unclear circumstances.

He who was to be extradited to the U.S. to face first-degree murder charges escaped custody on Wednesday, February 7 at around 7:30 pm.

Kang’ethe was talking to his lawyer at the Muthaiga police station before escaping by boarding a Matatu that had parked at a stage near the police station.

“He was talking to his lawyer at the station and within a few minutes, managed to escape by boarding a Matatu that had parked at the stage meters away from the police station entry.” A junior police officer spoke to Corporate Watch in confidence.

Nairobi regional commander Adamson Bungei has since visited Muthaiga police station and ordered the arrest of the four officers who were on duty when the incident occurred.

“We have the four officers in custody plus the suspect’s lawyer; we will brief the press later today on the developments.”  Bungei stated.

Kang’ethe who had been on the run for three months before his arrest, was held at the station awaiting a ruling on whether Kenya will extradite him to the US to face the murder charges of Margaret Mbitu who was brutally killed on October 31, 2023.
