A deaf and dumb man from Kahawa West was murdered by carjackers along the busy Thika Super Highway on Friday.

The man identified as Dennis Kimani Wachira was brutally attacked by hijackers a few days ago. His assailants took over a Sunbird Bus at Drive Inn only to assault passengers.

Sources say that the fact that he could not speak or hear might have led the attackers to brutally stab him 33 times.

His body was discovered at General Kago Mortuary in Thika.

Sources privy to the information intimated that the Sunbird Buses plying the Nairobi- Kahawa West route have been hijacked one too many times in the recent past but have only been driven to Kenyatta Road.

In April, a police officer lost his life after five gangsters hijacked a Neo Kenya Mpya bus near Garden City Mall also along Thika Road.

The hijackers stabbed two other passengers before taking off on foot at the National Concrete Bridge underpass.
