Deputy President Dr William Ruto has hit back at DCI boss George Kinoti over the murder of his Harambee Annex office guard, sergent Kipyegon Kenei.
Kenei, the policeman who was on duty when ex-Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa and his fake arms dealers held an illegal meeting at the DP’s office, was killed by powerful individuals.
DCI Kinoti on Thursday played Harambee Annex CCTV footages to the media, noting that Kenei was murdered, and his killers stage managed the scene to look like a suicide.
“We have identified the persons of interest and that will be the focus of our investigation going forward,” he told journalists moments after he addressed a lengthy press conference where he played CCTV footage showing Kenei’s last moments.
However, DP Ruto while hitting back at Kinoti said that the truth must be found on why, how and who killed sergent Kenei.
Ruto says Kenei’s family, his office and Kenyans want the truth and justice, and that culprits held to account.
According to the second in command, the drama, distortions, convenient half-truths and the smear campaigns in sponsored headlines amounts to criminal cover up.
“The truth MUST be found on WHY, HOW,and WHO killed Sgt kenei. The family, ODP,and kenyans want the TRUTH & JUSTICE and culprits held to account. The drama, distortions, convenient half-truths and the smear campaigns in sponsored headlines amounts to criminal cover up,” Ruto tweeted.
According to the investigators, Kenei had nothing to fear and was ready to spill the beans about what he knew regarding the fake arms deal that threw the DP’s office into the limelight.
Evidence gathered by the homicide detectives show Kenei’s house revealed a scenario of a gruesome murder stage-managed to look like a suicide.
