Three bodies believed to be that of missing mother and children from Kayole have been found.

Detectives found the dead bodies at Thingithu forest meters away from the Nanyuki airbase stuck on top of each other.

Investigations indicate that the mother Joyce Syombua,31 was strangled while her children Shanice Maua,10 and Prince Michael, 5 were hit by a sharp object.

The revelations come after Joyce’s estranged husband Major Peter Mugure was arrested for questioning into their disappearance.

DCI detectives were able to recover the bodies on Saturday evening following intelligence from an informer who has been identified as a taxi driver.

When detectives began investigations.

Joyce’s mother Elizabeth Maua reported the disappearance at Soweto police station when she could not reach her family.

Efforts to trace the mother and daughter led the detectives to a hotel where Joyce and the KDF officer met alone.

The mother then left to meet her children only for her phone to be found inside a matatu plying the Nyahururu route.

Call logs from the phone were to be looked into to trace the three.

It was established that Major Peter Ngure and Joyce were not in good terms and at one time tried to poison his two children.

Previously the KDF soldier had been taken to court to determine paternity of the two children who he allegedly denied fathering them.

Speaking following the discovery of the bodies, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko expressed his anger into the gruesome murder.

“Yani the stupid soldier from Nanyuki murdered his own wife and his two kids. He just directed the police to a shallow grave where he buried them.

Exhumation of the bodies is currently on going. May soldier Peter Mugure rot in hell. May he lack peace for the rest of his life.”
