An accountant with the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) based at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) and who went missing last Friday, was on Tuesday found in her house in Imara Daima Estate, Nairobi, unconscious.

Grace Andeyo, 51, is said to have left her station at KNH branch office presumably for lunch on Friday only for her to go missing.

In a police statement, detectives at Kilimani said while tracing her last movements, they were led to a taxi driver after a family member informed them that she had been dropped off at her house by a cab.

After interrogation, the taxi driver informed them that he took her to the house on Saturday.

Police said they went to the said house in Kings Millennium Apartments situated in Imara Daima, Embakasi where they found her unconscious.

“On arrival at the said place, we figured out that the missing person had indeed been dropped by the said taxi, with vehicle registration No. KCS 483X. The person in question was unconscious in a manner that would suggest she had been intoxicated,” said police in their report.

According to the taxi driver, Gilbert Mokaya, the woman approached him while he was at the taxi stage in Imara Daima and asked to be dropped home.

“She was holding a piece of paper bearing her home address and Sh200 note. We gathered the evidence that was in that scene of the crime and escorted the taxi driver involved for interrogation,” said the police.

Andeyo had left her car, a Volkswagen Polo, at the KNH parking yard raising concern among her colleagues, none of whom she contacted.

The woman was taken to Coptic Hospital as police investigate the matter.

A 30-year-old police impostor who allegedly stole a desperate job seeker’s phone promising to hire him to help in making deliveries to Kenya Defence Forces was charged with theft and impersonation.

Samuel Mwaniki Murigi was accused of stealing Evans Onyango Ogutu’s phone and national ID card at Imenti House on July 23.

Murigi was also accused of impersonation after presenting himself as a police officer attached to Central Police station Nairobi to Ogutu.

Ogutu was taking a rest at Uhuru Park after a job search in and around Nairobi CBD became fruitless when Murigi sat next to him while on-call, purporting he was advising his phantom boss that he would need to hire an extra hand to help him with meeting supplies.

Murigi claimed his boss had secured a contract to supply some items to Kenya Defence Forces and desperate Ogutu approached him for the job.

The suspect reportedly told Ogutu to accompany him to Imenti House to process a pass into military facilities to begin the job immediately and he obliged.

On arrival, Murigi reportedly took the phone and the ID card to proceed with the “process” and disappeared in thin air. The matter was reported to Parliament police station.

On July 4, Ogutu spotted Murigi at the same point and informed the police. Two undercover officers arrested Murigi and allegedly found pictures of himself in different police uniforms.

The suspect denied all the charges before chief magistrate Joyce Gandani of Kibera law courts.

He was freed on a Sh200,000 bond and an alternative cash bail of Sh30,000. The case will be mentioned on August 19.
