Police are looking into the mystery surrounding the death of 2022 Tharaka Nithi gubernatorial candidate Gitari Mbiuki.
Mr. Mbiuki’s body was discovered in a vehicle in Embu, and it appears that he sustained gunshot wounds. Although the police reports suggest that the 2022 gubernatorial candidate took his own life, there are alternative theories circulating.
He had been shot in the right ear and left eye, and was found to be heavily bleeding. Additionally, a pistol with eight rounds of ammo was discovered next to his chest.
Detectives have been baffled by the lack of a bullet or exit hole in the car, which has baffled them. The fact that the car’s window was fully rolled up suggests that he might have been shot outside.
Mr. Gitari was a well-known public servant who recently held the position of Assembly Clerk in Machakos County. Prior to that, he served as an administrator in Nairobi County and Kiambu.
In addition to his career in public service, Mr. Gitari was a successful businessman with significant investments in real estate
