HUSSEIN Abdalla is the man who was killed in Ruai and his head and limbs dumped on University Way, Nairobi with a chilling message for National Police Service Commission chairman Johnston Kavuludi.
Abdalla, 34, is from Mombasa. He had gone missing 10 days before his mutilated body was discovered at Githieko quarry in Ruai last Thursday. He disappeared on August 19 after a night out with friends at Kamulu shopping centre.Records from the Registrar of Persons state that his parents are Margaret Nyambura and Abdalla Mohammed.He moved to Nairobi in January and has been living with an aunt in Kamulu.
A source close to the family yesterday said the man left his aunt's home at around 5pm and told the family that he wanted to meet a friend at the shopping centre. The source said Abdalla did menial jobs such as pushing carts to earn a living.
Last Thursday at around 5pm, police recovered Abdalla's body but it did not have the head and arms.Four hours later the body parts were discovered outside Lutheran Plaza - the building that houses the NPSC offices.
The box in which the parts were found was addressed to Kavuludi and a message found inside read: "Kavuludi you are next."
Yesterday, Nairobi CID boss Nicholas Kamwende said police are yet to establish the motive of the murder. Abdalla's mother, Nyambura, who lives in Mombasa travelled to Nairobi to search for her missing son. It is after the Thursday incident that Nyam- bura and other relatives traced the body to City Mortuary.
