He concurrently condemned the killing of Kabete MP and his three aides who were shot dead on Saturday morning in Nairobi town by unknown gun men.
“Am concerned about VIPs personal security following the killing of Kabete MP and his three aides. The security officers should go for refresher courses and specialize on guarding an individual,” said Wambui while addressing journalists outside Othaya CDF hall in Othaya town.
She asked police to fast track investigations on the legislator’s killing and bring the culprits to book.
Wambui said the murder incident was mysterious as the killers could have been trailing the deceased persons for a long time.
“Muchai, his driver and bodyguards were not killed by ordinary criminals but by a specialized killer who could have trailed them for a long time before executing his plot. Bodyguards should be proactive. How comes even other police officers in the city did not respond to the shoot out?” posed Wambui.
She however described Muchai as a cordial person and who was friendly to all irrespective of political party affiliations.
