A British soldier has schocked the world after confessing to killing a Kenyan woman and dumbing her in a septic tank in Nanyuki.

The body of 21-year-old Agnes Wanjiru was found at the Lions Court Hotel, two months after she disappeared, in March 2012.

Previous investigations into the case were unsuccessful leading to a fresh investigation which was launched in 2019.

The initial reports by the Sunday Times found that Ms Wanjiru was unlawfully killed.

This weekend, the newspaper reports that a soldier accused of the murder has been named by his comrades.

The soldier allegedly confessed to the killing, while and another soldier reported it to senior officers at the time but no action was taken.

A post-mortem examination found Ms Wanjiru died as a result of stab wounds to her chest and abdomen.

There was also evidence she had been beaten, although due to the condition of her body it was unclear whether she had been sexually assaulted.

Witnesses reportedly said that Ms Wanjiru, a sex worker, was last seen leaving the hotel’s bar with a British soldier.
