The mystery behind the murder of Somali-American businessman Bashir keeps deepening.

The 36-year-old contractor went missing after he visited the Lavington-based Miale entertainment lounge for Eid celebrations. His black Range Rover was blocked by another car shortly after he left the establishment. 

Bashir's body was discovered at the bank of Nyamindi River in Kerugoya, Kirinyaga, after he disappeared on May 13 in Nairobi.

While his car, a dark coloured Range Rover with registration number KCQ 007P, was later found burnt to a shell in a thicket in the Kibiku area of Ngong' in Kajiado county. 

What puzzles many is that the burnt-out shell was later evacuated from the scene by unknown people under unclear circumstances. 

Bashir was buried at Lang'ata cemetery on May 24, 2021. 

Now, a report by Daily Nation states that residents of Ole Maroroi village, on the road to Suswa in Narok County stumbled upon the wreckage of a burning SUV and informed officers of a nearby police station.

However, officers who first arrived at the scene left without securing the wreckage.

Two days later, locals now claim two men were spotted in the area before they disappeared with the wreckage.

“They had a Mitsubishi Canter and a small car. They stayed here for a long time," said Joel Sunkuli, who lives near where the car was found.

Adding, "We thought that they were police officers or that the owner of the car had sent them to pick it up, and so nobody really bothered to know who they were.” 

Bashir's family is raising questions as to why the Kibiku officers did not secure the crime scene to avoid tampering with forensic evidence that could lead to nabbing the suspects or at least determining the motive..
