The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has launched a hunt for "private detective" Jane Mugo.
According to the DCI, Jane Wawira Mugo is wanted for various criminal activities including robbery with violence, impersonation and threatening to kill.
The DCI has secured a warrant of arrest from Milimani Law Courts with express orders to arrest the suspect on sight.
Jane Mugo is alleged to be masquerading as a private investigator and Chief Executive officer for Trimo Security Limited.
The DCI has detailed some of the offences Ms Mugo is accused of committing.
“On 15th August 2019, Ms Jane Wawira Mugo while at New Muthaiga Este (sic) drew a Pistol and threatened to KILL a man on allegations that he was spying for a relative of the Director in a Company where she was the Private Investigator,” reads a tweet by the DCI.
In 2015, she was accused and charged with detaining a man for hours after forcing him to pay Sh440,000 to her.
Still, in 2015, she was accused of impersonating a person employed in the public service. She stormed the office of the victim’s lawyer (the detained man’s lawyer) introducing herself as a police officer. She then searched the house and created a disturbance.
