The bodies of four middle-aged men were last night discovered locked inside a probox in Gitaru area, Kabete.
According to a witness, the car had been parked in the area since Wednesday morning when a neighbor decided to peep inside and saw the bodies. The neighbor then alerted some boda boda operators who then called in police officers.
The bodies seem to have been strangled before they were put into the salon car and abandoned at the interchange.
When officers arrived there, they found two bodies in the boot and two others in the backseat. The identities of the men are yet to be known and witnesses say they seem to have been killed elsewhere and bodied dumped there. They were later removed and taken to the mortuary as a probe was launched.

Africa’s oldest president turned a year older today, celebrating his 93rd birthday. it is said that Mugabe could be spending up to $2million for the lavish event which translates to an estimated Ksh 207,200,000. This is amid complaints from Zimbabweans of the dire state of the country.
The opposition party has blasted the spending as a waste of money. Figures are rampant about the high level of unemployment in the country which is said to be as high as 90% of the population without formal jobs.
It has also apparently been reported in a local publication that citizens are being asked to donate funds and livestock as a show of appreciation to their president. A top firm has also been targeted to bankroll the event & the youth are also said to be targeting 10,000 school buses for transportation to the event.
During an interview, the aged leader spoke of his intentions to not stand down, and how his party – ZANU-PF- still wants him to run for the next elections.
As is tradition, his birthday cake usually weighs as much as his age, so in this case, there might be a whopping 93 kg cake.
Also, state media has reported that 100,000 guests are expected, and up to 150 cattle are said to be up for the slaughter.
