Mystery surrounds the late Mutula Kilonzo movements
A traffic policeman at a check point near the turn-off to the ranch said Mutula drove past shortly after mid day in a white Range Rover.
The entry to the senator’s 1,500 acre ranch is about one kilometer from the Machakos turn-off on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway.
It is about a ten minutes drive from the traffic police check point near Vista Factory to the late senator’s Kwa Kyelu ranch house.
“He was alone in the vehicle as he passed the traffic check point,” the officer told the Star.
Police are leaving nothing to chance as they investigate the circumstances that led to the death of the Makueni senator.
37 samples were collected from his Maanzoni home in Machakos in their attempt to unravel what caused the demise of the 64-year-old senior counsel.
“Samples from the charcoal used to roast the meat were taken for analysis,” Machakos deputy police boss, Philip Wambugu who led the team to the scene said yesterday.
All the specimen were photographed before being carted away for analysis by forensic experts.
However,police are baffled as to why the former justice minister did not seek help when he fell ill and vomited in the bathroom sink and in bed.
Police arrived at the scene shortly before 1 p.m.with doctors and forensic experts who found the body still warm and estimated he had not been dead for more than three hours.
The house is fitted with several close circuit television cameras in all rooms and around the compound which on being played back showed that nobody had visited the house from the time he arrived at the farm on Friday afternoon.
