On one occasion, Itumbi’s badge, which had the Kenyan flag, was upside down and Kenei rushed after him and asked for permission to fix it.

“One day, I told him I was uncomfortable with the reference as Sir and his response, " I hear you sir" - I gave up insisting.

Dennis Itumbi has described the late Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei as a diligent officer who was very respectful and loved his job.

Through a post on social media, Itumbi highlighted several instances he interacted with the deceased and lauded his professionalism, describing him as ‘an amazing policeman.’

“Kipyegon Kenei, was one of those great people…You would not fail to notice him, ever sharply dressed, great suits and patriotic to a fault.


“We spoke many times, after my arrest he told me, " Gold, is refined by fire," adding, " The fire is done, now it is time to stand out, you just needed to sustain the heat and you have done your part” wrote Itumbi.
