Kenei was killed — DCI Kinoti rules out suicide

By Vincent Kejitan | March 5th 2020 at 16:18:02 GMT +0300

Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei was killed.

This is according to DCI boss George Kinoti who ruled out suicide.

While presenting some of the CCTV footage captured at the Deputy President’s office when former Sports CS Rashid Echesa paid a ‘courtesy call’, Kinoti said there was no way Kenei committed suicide since even the murder scene left so many question marks.

Through a brief demo, Kinoti showed how Kenei might have been murdered and pointed out that had the deceased shot himself, based on the blood spatter, he would have fallen on his bed.

Kinoti stated that when he visited Kenei’s Imara Daima home he found the deceased dressed in pyjamas and his bed was neatly spread.

He speculated that the killers stage-managed the scene to make it appear like suicide but the evidence collected suggested otherwise.

“The exit of the bullet made us come up with a hypothesis. To be fair, absolutely fair, if it was suicide, we would have wished that he rests in peace and then ask ourselves why he had killed himself.

"So if he could have shot himself no matter how we demonstrated that satisfy the theory and hypothesis, with him bending as you are going to see in our report, then automatically he would have fallen on his back.

“But what we found out was a stage-managed incident which is the opposite,” he remarked.

Through CCTV footage shared with the press, Kenei can be seen interacting with some of the suspects in the Sh39 billion military equipment tender deal.

Sergeant Kenei was one of the Critical Infrastructure Police Unit officers on duty when Echesa and two foreigners allegedly visited the DP’s office to discuss details of the fake tender.

He was among the officers who were summoned to appear at the DCI headquarters to record a statement in connection with the same but did not report on duty on February 19, 2020. 

He was later found dead inside his house.
