Nakuru - A 28-year-old engineer in Nakuru County was killed by men who posed as buyers of his car, which he had put up for sale on the internet.
Alex Mariera had travelled from Kirinyaga County to deliver the car to people who had offered to pay KES 950 000 for it.
He was killed during a test drive of the car, and his body stashed inside the boot of the family car which he was driving.
