According to a William Ruto aide, a special state police unit assassinated two Indian techies who went missing in Kenya in the middle of July.
Zulfiqar Khan, the former chief operating officer of Balaji Telefilms, and another Indian, Mohamed Zaid Sami Kidwai, vanished more than two months ago after leaving a well-known bar in a wealthy Nairobi neighbourhood. Khan and Kidwai were both in Kenya to join the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) team for President William Ruto’s election campaign.

“Zaid and Ahmad were just good people who became my friends and, in the process, connected with some in our team,” he added.
In an effort to find the missing people, police authorities had earlier claimed that CCTV footage had been acquired from the scene of the kidnapping. To aid in the investigation, some local detectives were also held.
The jailed cops were instructed to give a dossier containing their investigation into the missing person’s case to a new group of sleuths, the Kenyan media.
“Evidence shows them getting into the cab. Minutes later, a vehicle, the ones used by the ROGUE DCI Unit, blocked the cab. Zaid and Ahmed were dragged into the car. Their cab driver too, “Itumbi said in the post.
The Indian government stated last week that it was in constant communication with the Kenyan administration and was keeping a close check on the situation involving two of its citizens who have been missing in Kesari.
