    "The husband was only in good terms with the wife for some time," Mureithi stated.

    The case was initially highlighted in a report on Citizen TV's prime time news on Tuesday, November 12.

    They had paid a visit to Mugure at the army barracks in Laikipia.

    Syombua and her two children were reported to have gone to the Nanyuki matatu terminus to board a vehicle to Nairobi, where they were last seen. 

    A matatu driver was also grilled over the disappearance of the officer's wife and their two children, Shanice Maua (10) and Prince Michael (5).

    On the other hand, the driver attached to 4NTE sacco refuted claims of having ferried the three to Nairobi.

    "We do not ferry clients at night, the vehicle that brought Syombua's phone was on private duty," one of the drivers explained regarding the cell phone that was recovered.
