Body of missing Somali-American trader found outside Nairobi

NAIROBI (SD) – The body of a Somali American businessman was on Saturday found at Kerugoya level 5 Hospital in central Kenya more than a week ago after he went missing.

Bashir Mohamed Mohamud, 35-year-old structural engineer and proprietor of Infinity Developers, headquartered in Nairobi, went missing after leaving Miale Lounge in Lavington, Nairobi, where he had gone for a meeting and Idd celebrations.

New CCTV footage from the lounge shows that a few seconds down the road after guards at the facility’s gate bid him bye, the seemingly obstructed black Range Rover caused a traffic snarl-up on the road he took.

Curious pedestrians are seen looking at what could be a commotion near Bashir’s car.

There was a traffic snarl-up on the left lane and no vehicles are seen moving from the right side, a clear indication that a vehicle had blocked the road.

His Range Rover was traced to Ngong Road and then Kibiku by the Range Rover dealership. It was later found burnt by Kenyan police, who attempted to retrace his steps.

The family reported the matter at Muthangari Police Station. His family also informed the US Embassy in Nairobi.

Through a statement by their lawyer, the family of the body of the victim was found in Mwea, Kirinyaga County.

“It is with heavy hearts that the family of Bashir Mohamed Mohamud informs you that the body of Bashir was found earlier today at Kerugoya level 5 hospital,” Family Lawyer Charles Madowo said in the statement.

The family vowed not to rest until those responsible for Mr Bashir’s death are brought to book.

“As the family processes this tragic news and plan for his burial, they request that they be accorded privacy,” the statement said.

Bashir relocated to Nairobi, where he lived with his wife in the Lavington area.  His firm spearheaded many projects in Kenya and Somalia.
