Boinnet orders probe into road crash death allegedly caused by televangelist
By Lucy Mwihaki | July 31st 2015
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet has called for a thorough probe into an accident in which a Range Rover said to belong to a popular televangelist hit and killed a woman in Tigoni in Limuru.
Boinnet ordered the probe after it emerged that traffic officers handling the matter may have given him the wrong information regarding who was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident.
He said he would sack the officers who handled the file if he finds out that they lied to him to cover up the incident. "I have sent a team of senior officers to Tigoni to investigate the matter after which action will be taken based on the findings," he said.
Questions had been raised after the IG wrote on social media that the vehicle was being driven by Simon Maina Kuria when it was involved in a head-on collision with a saloon car leading to the death of Mercy Njeri, and injuring her husband Martin Mbugua. Kuria was arraigned in a Limuru court on Wednesday and released on a Sh20,000 cash bail.
