• There has been an ongoing debate on what the country should do in light of the murders that have taken place in the Airbnbs.
The discovery of a second woman murdered and dismembered in an Airbnb has sent shockwaves around the country.
The incident comes barely a week after socialite Starlet Wahu was found murdered in an apartment in South B, leading to the arrest of a man she had checked in with identified as John Matara.
This past weekend another woman’s body was found in an Airbnb in Roysambu.
The incident was reported by a property manager of the guest house who alerted police on the discovery of blood-stained bedsheets on the staircase.
Police later found the woman’s body stashed in polythene bags suggesting the killer may have tried to dispose it off.
Jimmy Kimari, the head of Kasarani Divisional Criminal Investigations says investigations are underway to trace the man who was with the woman.
