Anglican priest, Reverend Elijah Githinji (Pictured), fell prey to a similar gang that allegedly blackmailed Kirinyaga Deputy Governor Peter Ndambiri in 2014 and later died in India after suffering a sudden ailment said to have been triggered by the dehumanising ordeal that left hima at the mercy of his followers.

He was buried at his rural Kabaro home, Ndia, Kirinyaga West Sub-county the same Monday Ndambiri identified the third suspect.

Ndambiri who arrived at the burial after 6pm told mourners that he was late for Githinji’s funeral as he was held up at a police identification parade in Nairobi.

“Although our brother has left without justice having been served, those who set him up will certainly be punished since we believe they were the same ones who subjected me to the dehumanising condition after falling into their trap,” he said.

Mourners at Githinji’s funeral recalled how the gang allegedly busted him from a lodging in Nairobi where he was a priest with a married woman leading to a thorough beating from the ‘husband,’ but Githinji maintained his innocence until his death.
