Women at the centre of Muchai murder probe
11 February 2015, 12:47
Nairobi - It has emerged that police have centered their investigations on the murder of Kabete MP George Muchai on a group of women.
The MPs death is being investigated by high level detectives and has been helped by the availability of CCTV footage, which has opened up room for the identification of suspects.
According to police sources, the first suspect in police custody is the owner of the vehicle that was used by the criminals in the plot to kill the MP.
The vehicle is registered to a lady ironically from Kabete, but she has apparently claimed she was carjacked in the process losing her vehicle which ended up being used in the incident.
Police are trying to piece together whether her account is true or whether the fact that she is from Kabete means anything in the investigation.
" She is from Kabete and that has raised alarm bells. That said, she has an account that she was carjacked, so we are still talking to her, " a CID officer who did not want to be named told News24.
Also, it is understood that there is a group of ladies that sat next to the MP and his family at the Galileo Lounge in Westlands that is being trailed.
The ladies arrived at the lounge before the MP but left immediately after he left the establishment.
" This one is interesting. The CCTV footage points to them being interested parties, but they are yet to be found, the officer added.
The MPs widow Susan has also been questioned by police over the murder.
MPs have called on police to heighten investigations and ensure that they have the persons who killed the MP arraigned in court as soon as possible.
