Kenei Killers: As the nation comes to terms with shocking death of a police officer attached to Deputy President William Ruto’s Harambee Annex offices, the office of the DCI has announced that Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei was murdered in cold blood.
According to a CCTV footage, suspects in the fake Sh. 40 billion military equipment deal that is suspected to be linked with the murder spent over an hour at Harambee House Annex and not 23 minutes as earlier claimed by DP William Ruto. The suspects include former cabinet secretary Rashid Echesa. Here is a blow by blow as explained by the Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti:
1). CCTV footage shows the fake arms deal suspects spent one hour 22 minutes at the Harambee Annex building.
2). On February 14, DCI officers proceeded to Harambee House Annex seeking to be provided with CCTV footage covering the events of February 13, 2020. The officers were denied access and only shown 23 minutes of footage which had been taken from various cameras.
3). CCTV clips show the movement of former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa, two guests believed to be from American company Eco Advanced Technologies, LLC and Kenei who was found dead on February 20.
4). Earlier footage was edited to conceal the roles of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei in the fake procurement scam.
5). Kenei was to record a statement with the police on the fake arms scam before he was reported missing and eventually dead.
6). Evidence from the movement of Kenei before his death and the crime scene at his Twiga Court house in Imara Daima Estate, Nairobi, where he was found, rule out the claim he committed suicide.
7). Kenei killers tampered with the scene to make it appear that he committed suicide.
8). Post mortem results suggested that Kenei died a day or two before his body was found and that the cause of death was a gunshot to the head. Kenei died from a single gunshot wound on his chin.
9). Kenei’s body lay on the floor of his table room was inconsistent with suicide. Kenei was found without shoes and in his pyjamas, but that his bed was neat, a circumstance he said was unusual.
