Kang’ethe had escaped from Muthaiga Police Station in unclear circumstances that left the Kenya Police in utter embarrassment. He was being held at the station awaiting his extradition to the United States to answer to a charge of first degree murder.

Kang’ethe is the prime suspect in the murder of Maggie Mbitu, a Kenya  woman who was a US citizen.
