BY UPESI NEWS REPORTER,NAIROBI,5TH MARCH 2020-Investigators have concluded that Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei, the Administration Police officer who was on duty at DP Willam Ruto’s office when former CS Rashid Echesa and two foreigners visited, was murdered.
“He was murdered,” said George Kinoti, the Director of Criminal Investigations, when he addressed a press conference Thursday and even released CCTV footage showing events of the day at Annex.
Investigators say that the officer was drugged before he was shot through the chin. The lone bullet exited from the top of his head, killing him instantly.
Also puzzling the officers is the missing data from his phone which was wiped clean days before he was found dead at his house.
A suicide note that was found near his body did not bear the officers handwriting, leaving detectives confused as to motive of its existence.
One of the officers privy to the investigations said that the crime scene had been tampered with and had been made to look like suicide.
The officer’s gun was lying close to his lifeless body.
The officer was in charge on the day ex-sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid visited Ruto’s office long before it emerged that he was smack in the middle of a Ksh.39billion military equipment scam.
The late Kenei will be ferried to his Chamasis village home for burial this Saturday.
The decision was made after his family and friends met at a hotel in Nakuru on Tuesday evening.
They unanimously agreed to have his body buried over the weekend.
