A team of twenty homicide detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Friday January 2, visited the home of Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale in Malinya, Kakamega County.
The detectives are investigating the misery surrounding the death of Kizito Moi Amukune, Khalwale’s worker who died after allegedly being gored by a bull he was taking care of.
According to Khalwale, the late Amukune returned home while drunk, and the smell of the local brew that was similar to molasses might have attracted the bull that went ahead to attack him.
However, a section of Kenyans read foul play in the death, with Kakamega businessman Cleophas Shimanyula accusing Khalwale of murdering his worker then blaming it on the bull named Inasio.
The accusations attracted the attention of the DCI homicide detectives, who have now visited Khalwale’s Malinya home for the fourth time.
A team of DCI detectives from Malinya police station were the first to visit the home to carry out investigations, but the intensity of the matter attracted the attention of the detectives from the DCI headquarters from Kiambu Road, Nairobi.
Khalwale who spoke on the fourth day of the investigations said he was willingly ready to offer the detectives the maximum cooperation they need during their investigations.
He added that the detectives are awaiting for the second post-mortem for them to conclude their investigations.
“The National Director of Homicide Investigations Department, Martin Nyuguto, led a 20-man strong squad from Nairobi to lay bear the facts surrounding the sudden death of my fighter bull caretaker,'” Khalwale posted on X.
