  • Armed gunmen who shot and killed KBC journalist Betty Mutekhele dropped a mobile phone just 50 metres from her home in Ngong, Kajiado County.

    Detectives believe that the mobile phone, which was among four that had been stolen from the deceased’s home, was dropped accidentally as they were fleeing the scene of crime.

    The gadget will act as a crucial piece of evidence and will help unlock the investigation into the heinous crime where the journalist was shot twice.
