DCI detectives on Thursday re-arrested Michael Mutunga who is implicated in killing Catholic Priest in Embu County.


Mutunga is a suspect in the murder of Father Michael Maingi Kyengo on October 8, 2019, and his remains were later found buried in a shallow grave on a dry riverbed known as Gathingiri in Embu.


His arrest comes after Embu court released him on cash bail.


“Detectives had painstakingly investigated the murder and arrested the main suspect with crucial exhibits linking him to the crime. The exhibits included a sharp knife suspected to be the murder weapon and some of his blood-stained clothes which he had tried to wash in vain,” a statement by the DCI read in part.


The officers said that in an unimaginable turn of events, the suspect was discharged on a Sh 300,000 cash bail upon arraignment at the Embu High Court.


The suspect instantly went into hiding and abandoned the court procedure, forcing the court to issue a warrant for his arrest.


He went into hiding but detectives who have been tracking him succeeded to kick him out of his hideout in Nairobi.
