The head of the British Army said he was “frightened” at the allegations that British soldiers were involved in the killing of a Kenyan woman whose body was found in a septic tank.
The body of 21-year-old Agnes Wanjiru was found at the Lions Court Hotel in the town of Nanyuki near the Batuk (British Army Training Unit Kenya) camp two months after disappearing in March 2012.
The Sunday Times reported that soldiers accused of murder were nominated by their peers after confessing to the murder.
In a statement, Army General Mark Carlton Smith wrote:
“I want you to know that I am determined to assist the appropriate authorities in establishing the facts in question as soon as possible.”
The Sunday Times said another soldier had reported the killing to a senior officer at the time, but no action was taken and workers urged the government to investigate the possibility of “concealment.”
Defense sources told PA News Agency: “The Defense Minister was impatient at this pace and ordered full cooperation.
“He worked with gendarmerie and Kenyans to keep their investigation uninterrupted.”
