Trader found dead in Naivasha lodging

The body of a middle-aged trader was found in a Naivasha lodging with a bullet lodged in his head.  Police at the scene recovered a Ceska pistol and several rounds of ammunition.

It was not clear if the trader, who hails from Timboroa, committed suicide or was murdered by a woman friend who had accompanied him to the lodging.

According to a police source, the man booked in on Monday and stayed overnight with the woman before deciding to extend his stay.

He was not, however, seen on Wednesday raising suspicion about his whereabouts. A police officer, who is not authorised to speak to the media, said the deceased was covered with a blanket on the bed raising suspicion that he was murdered.

“He is a licensed gun-holder and we are looking for the woman who had accompanied him,” said the officer. Meanwhile, three suspects shot dead by police in Naivasha last week during a botched robbery attempt, have been identified.
