Kenei, 33, of Administration Police’s Security of Government Buildings went missing since Wednesday when he was supposed to accompany his colleagues to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to record a statement in the Sh39.5 billion fake arms probe.

His body was found in his house in Villa Franca Estate, Imara Daima. Witnesses said he had a bullet wound in the head and his gun was found lying next to his body.

Deputy President William Ruto has described the late Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei as a disciplined young police officer.

The DP further called on the relevant authorities to speed up investigations into the matter to establish what led to his death.

“Deeply saddened by the death of Police Sergent Kipyegon Kenei who worked in my Harambee House Annex Office. Kenei was a disciplined young police officer.


“I urge the relevant authorities to conduct a thorough investigation to ascertain the circumstances surrounding his death.

“My heartfelt thoughts to the family, colleagues and friends. Rest In Peace,” said Ruto.

Witnesses said there was a bullet hole in the roof of the house. Police who arrived at the scene at first described the incident as suicide and removed the body.

They, however, returned it to the scene after learning that he was a person of interest in the fake arms probe.

Apparently, he was one of the officers who were on duty when former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa and two foreigners are said to have visited the Deputy President’s office last week.
