Controversially, Chiloba is also said to have been embroiled in a love triangle.

Details have now emerged that he might have been killed because of a cash gift he reportedly received from a friend from abroad.

At the club where he was last seen alive, Chiloba received a huge amount of cash which he showed to his friends while settling the bills at Tamasha Club in dollars.

Detectives are now investigating claims that, shortly after Chiloba was murdered, his friends withdrew or took the cash he had. The five suspects, three of them minors, were arraigned before Eldoret Senior Principal Magistrate Richard Odenyo.

The court heard that the prime suspect in the murder, Jackton Odhiambo, had been hanging out with the deceased at various entertainment joints from which CCTV footages are yet to be retrieved.

The five suspects are believed to have helped in removing the body of Chiloba from the residential area.

Initiated by retired President Uhuru Kenyatta, the construction of the 233-kilometre Nairobi-Nakuru-Mau Summit Toll Road that was initially meant to kick off in September 2021 has been awaiting the approval of President Ruto.

A consortium of three French firms indicated that they were ready to break ground on the project having received the financial backing of the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the World Bank.

However, sources close to the project say the new administration has been cagey about the tolling of the road which they fear will roil the economy of President Ruto’s Rift Valley backyard.
