Estate caretaker Stanley Some said Ms Moraa arrived home early on Wednesday afternoon and that a young man later arrived in a car.

“He had come here once or twice so I was not alarmed. I met him at the gate as he was exiting but he looked a bit disturbed,” said Mr Some.

The caretaker said that at about 4.30am on Thursday, two men who visited the officer's house said she had been killed.

He notified the village elder who then alerted police.

Ms Moraa had lived at Miti Moja for about two months.

Neighbours described her as calm and welcoming as she interacted with them freely.
