Investigations on the disappearance and murder of a teacher in Nyamira have narrowed down to whether the deceased was involved in a love triangle involving the nurse where his body was found on Sunday.
Detectives involved in the investigations have told sauce.co.ke that they suspect that Ezekiel Nkeere Gitangwa was in a romantic relationship with Agneta Agwata, a nurse at Nyamaiya health centre.
Gitangwa, 47 was also married to Glady’s Achoki. According to villagers who have spoken to the police, Gitangwa was not the only man in Agneta’s life. Apparently, Agneta who has since disappeared and is being looked for by the police was involved romantically with a number of other men including an MCA from Nyamira.
The men who are now persons of interest in the investigation have been frequent visitors at Agneta’s house including the MCA. Police are trying to establish whether Gitangwa walked into a trap and who else could have been involved in his murder.
Gitangwa was reported missing by his wife Gladys Achoki when he failed to return home after being dropped on Friday morning by a boda-boda rider at Egesieri village in West Mugirango.
“A search was mounted and intelligence led to a house in Egesieri belonging to one Agneta Agwata, a nurse at Nyamaiya Health Centre,” said a police report which added that the last time he was seen was at 9 am on Friday morning.
Police gained entry by breaking the door to the house since the nurse was nowhere to be found. Nkeere’s body was found hidden in a room used for keeping poultry wrapped in a purple carpet.
The matter has since been taken over by the Nyamira County DCI headquarters who are currently trailing the nurse who is suspected to have escaped to Nairobi after switching off her phone. The slain teacher’s mobile phone is also yet to be found. Police suspect it was taken by his killers who switched it off immediately after murdering him.
But even as investigations continue we have established that the teacher was an ardent user of Tiktok and had posted a video just days to his death. In the video where the teacher is seen lip syncing to Enock Jona’s ‘Tenda kwangu nipate Ushuhuda’ asking God to bless him.
