Police are still looking for three other men involved in the murder and a woman believed to have been harbouring them.

Yesterday, another suspect accused of killing Marjan, 62, was arraigned before a Milimani Law Court.
Juma Hussein Mohammed will be held for nine days after the court heard that he was yet to record a statement with the police.
Police also told the court that the suspect has not been taken for a mental health assessment.
Marjan’s lifeless body was found on May 4 near the Kibera Law Courts.
He was on his way home from the studio after hosting a night show on Islamic teachings on Ramadhan.
CCTV footage allegedly showed that the radio presenter was attacked by a gang of 6 at 4 am but the circumstances remain unclear.
One gang member has since been lynched by members of the public.
Police have indicated that investigations into the murder are still on going.
