Second suspect arrested for rape, decapitation of victims

Detectives have arrested a second suspect they believe is linked to a series of crimes in Western Kenya.

Twenty four year-old Boniface Gubimiru, alias Guga, is linked to a case in which the male victim was seriously injured and his wife gang raped before her leg was chopped off.

In April 2019, the same gang robbed another couple and defiled their 14-year-old daughter.

His accomplice Kelson Lienga was arrested last on Wednesday in Kawangware after being on the run despite a 20 year conviction in absentia after failing to attend court.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the gang is connected to a series of crimes in Western Kenya.
