Bodies of couple who drowned in Juja dam recovered

An extrail car and bodies of two people who drowned in the Titanic Juja dam was recovered ending hours of search.

And as the search was over, the wife of the man who drowned has broken her silence for the first time since the tragedy happened on Monday night.

According to Sarah Kiiru, her husband Tirus Maina was a businessman, eking out a living selling engineering machinery. On the fateful day, she claims that her husband left home for work in the morning, and later called at around 7pm on Monday, saying he was in a business meeting in Juja.

“My husband left home for work on Monday morning, and we spoke in the evening around 7pm. He said he was in Juja for a business meeting, I asked what he would want for dinner and that was the last time we spoke,” she said.

According to Kiiru, after their last conversation, Maina’s phone went off and none of her messages were replied to.

“I called and sent him messages but he was unreachable, very unusual of him because he has always been accessible,” she told Citizen.Digital on Thursday.

According to Kiiru, it was not until Tuesday at around 2pm that she was called by a friend and told to report to Kimbo police station where she learnt about her husband’s demise.

The Titanic Dam is a well-known park-and-chill spot among the locals and revellers who love some unfettered outdoor fun.

At the banks of the dam, bottles of alcohol are seen scattered all over, a clear indication that people often party in the area.

According to the locals, the two were making merry in the car that was parked a few metres from the dam and at around 9.30 pm, they heard people screaming for help.

Maina was in the company of an identified woman and his body was retrieved on Wednesday and taken to City Mortuary together with the woman’s body where the wife identified him.

“Although I do not know her, I believe the woman who was with my husband that night was a friend, he had so many friends because of the nature of his business,” she said.
