After Kenyans on twitter largely speculated that COTU leader Francis Atwoli had a hand in the killing of Kabete MP George Muchai that led to a press conference, it seems that facts are finally starting to stream in. With assurance that the cameras on the highway are working and that no one is sleeping on the job the car owner of the car used in the attack has finally been arrested. The Kabete woman, owner of car registration number KBE 464, Toyota Spacio is under interrogation and is supposedly aiding the police with the interrogations.
Nairobi county Head of criminal investigations Nicholas Kamwende however has stated the fact that having claimed innocence after a purported carjacking she might be ‘a victim of the crime’, after all she and her friend had been bugled up in the car boot and dumped along Kamandura on Narok- Nairobi highway. This is however cast in doubt with Kenyan detectives stating that they purportedly arrested her when she was in the possession of several SIM cards from different service providers and this could have been used in communicating with the attackers. Also a fact to consider is that the attackers mercilessly carried out the kills in execution style but somehow left her, a witness alive.
Kenyan police officers are nonetheless under scrutiny given the fact that they released the vehicle too soon after recovery without it undergoing forensic analysis that may have lead to loss of evidence, especially so for fingerprints. This is in conjunction with the fact the woman categorically mentioned that the attackers were speaking in Kikuyu dialect. Nonetheless Kenyans have to wait a little while longer to be sure of how guilty the individuals are as investigations are still ongoing.
