Missing ex-Multimedia University student found dead


Former Multimedia University of Kenya (MMU) student, Susan Njoki, who went missing on December 30, 2018, has been found dead.

Ms Njoki’s body was found lying at Nairobi’s City Mortuary on Monday, January 14, her elder brother, Suleiman Ngige, has confirmed.

Speaking to EDAILY on phone Monday, Mr Ngige said a City Mortuary attendant, who came across his social media post announcing his sister’s disappearance, informed him that he had seen Ms Njoki’s body at the morgue.

“We are currently at a city police station trying to find out what exactly led to my sister’s death. However, preliminary investigations show that she was run over by a vehicle, which left her dead on December 31. Her body, according to the morgue attendant, who I spoke to, was taken to the facility by a police van from Juja station at 3am on New Year’s Eve,” said Mr Ngige in a shaky voice.

In a January 10 interview with EDAILY, Mr Ngige, said the former Bachelor of Applied Communication student, who graduated in 2017, went missing on December 30.

Ms Njoki, 24, was last seen in Nairobi’s central business district at 11pm after reporting to work earlier in the day.

The ex-MMU student, a second born in a family of four siblings, worked as a products promotion agent, and on December 30, she had gone for a “gig” in Kitengela, Kajiado County.

“Her workmate, whom we have spoken to, told us that the last conversation she had with Njoki, was when Njoki inquired if she had found a matatu home,” Mr Ngige told EDAILY on January 10.

According to Mr Ngige, Ms Njoki had spent her Christmas holiday with her family in Njoro, Nakuru County. The missing girl returned to Nairobi on December 27 ahead of the job she was to report to on December 30.

She stayed with her friend and cousin in Ongata Rongai, Kajiado County.

“By the time of her return to Nairobi, none of her roommates was present, given they had traveled home for the end of year holidays,” said Mr Ngige.

-NJOKI COULD NOT GO FOR MORE THAN TWO DAYS WITHOUT CALLING FAMILY-

Mr Ngige, in the past interview, said it was “uncharacteristic” of his sister to go for days without getting in touch with at least one of her family members.

“We are completely devastated. My parents are badly affected. Njoki has never gone for more than two days without calling us on phone. Even when she loses her phone, she always finds a way of reaching us. It is eleven days today since she was last seen, and we have not even heard a single word from her. That is very uncharacteristic of Njoki,” said Mr Ngige on January 10.

Mr Ngige said no family member spoke to Ms Njoki on the day she disappeared.

The only other person that Ms Njoki spoke to on the night of December 30, besides her workmate was a friend, whom she greeted via text message.

“Her friend, whom she texted on December 30, told us that she inquired how she [friend] was doing; and by the time her buddy was responding, she had already gone offline,” said Mr Ngige.

-MS NJOKI’S RELATIONSHIP-

The distressed brother said he only learnt about his sister’s relationship with an “Arab guy” on January 8.

“I have asked around [from her friends] if she was in a relationship, and I just learnt that she was seeing an Arab guy. I understand that the relationship was only one-and-a-half months old, when she disappeared. Her friends do not know the name of the guy, or where he exactly lives. They only know that he is a resident of Nairobi,” said Mr Ngige.

Ms Njoki’s family had filed reports about her disappearance at Njoro Police Station and Central Police Station in Nakuru.
