The family of the lady who was brutally murdered at TRM Drive shares heart-wrenching details surrounding her death - See the chilling message that her father received on Sunday at exactly 5:00 am.

Wednesday, January 17, 2024 - The family of Rita Waeni, the 20-year-old lady who was brutally murdered at an Airbnb along TRM Drive, has broken silence through their spokesperson, Dr. Lillian Mutea.

The family said that on Saturday, January 13, 2024, the fateful day that their daughter was murdered, she left her aunt’s residence in Syokimau to meet a friend.

On Sunday, January 14, at 5:00 am, her father received a chilling message from Rita’s phone number, demanding a ransom of Ksh 500,000.

The family reported the matter to the police and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), initiated investigations.

Two subsequent messages followed, reiterating the demand for ransom

Regrettably, the family could not gather more details or negotiate.

The phone was later switched off.

The ruthless killer demanded ransom from Rita’s family even after killing her and dismembering her body.

“After a painful and futile search, working with the DCI, we positively identified our child as the girl tragically murdered at the wake of Sunday morning at/or around Thika Road Mall, January 14. 

"We believe she was lured by her killer, who also tried to extort money from her family, even after killing her,” expressed the grief-stricken family.

Rita was 20 years old and was due to join her fourth and final year of University at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).

The family expressed gratitude to DCI for their support and hoped that those responsible for the barbaric murder will be held accountable.

During this period of grief, we kindly request privacy as we mourn the loss of Waeni. 

"Our focus is on cherishing the precious memories we shared with her and supporting each other as a family. 

"We also appeal to the media for respect and understanding as we cope with this profound loss,” the family added.
