Three of the suspects arrested over the twin matatu explosion on Thika Superhighway are relatives from Homa Bay.

The fourth suspect identified as Ivy Mweu is the wife to the Kelvin Ochieng, the man police say is the main suspect. Others are Rose Atieno, his sister and Edwin Odhiambo who is Ochieng’s brother.

It is alleged that Ochieng and his collaborators escaped from the scene on a motorbike after causing the blasts that left three people dead and more than 50 injured.

It was not clear whether Ochieng’s three relatives were part of the terror gang that struck on May 4, killing and maiming passengers aboard the buses heading to Mwiki and Githurai 45.

All of them were picked from Ochieng’s house in Mwiki on May 7. They were handed over to Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) for more questioning.
