DPP orders probe into Nanyuki twilight girl’s death

By By JOB WERU | July 30th 2012


Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Keriako Tobiko wants to look at a police investigation file on a Nanyuki twilight girl who was allegedly murdered by British army officers.

In a letter dated July 13 this year, Ms Mary Wang’ele, on behalf of the DPP cited laxity in police investigations on the death of Ms Agnes Wanjiru Wanjiku, 21.

Wang’ele noted that despite a report being made at Nanyuki Police Station, police were lax in probing the death, while witnesses were willing to testify.

“Be that as it may, I have been directed by the DPP to urgently call for the duplicate police file together with a progress report on the case for our perusal and further directions,” said the official.

Wanjiru’s decomposed body was retrieved from a septic tank at Lion’s Court Hotel in Nanyuki, where her killers allegedly dumped it.

Her body was found more than two months after she went missing.
