“They are all loading Supervisors in Rai Cement Company from Mombasa. The aspect of terror is also being investigated in the murder,” the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said on Saturday.

The arrests follow extensive forensic investigations of the crime scene in the residential house of the deceased, the DCI said.
