NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 11 – The families of the late Kabete MP George Muchai, two bodyguards and his driver have called on the police to expedite the investigations into the killings and apprehend the suspects before the deceased are buried on Friday.
Kiambu Senator Kimani Wa Matangi who spoke on behalf of the families says they are very eager to know the truth about the killings which occurred on Saturday morning on Kenyatta Avenue.
“We want those who are behind these crimes to be apprehended and arraigned before court and convicted as per the law of this country,” he stated.
“We have seen our security operators nailing even more dangerous criminals across the border…these ones are not special criminals, they should be apprehended.”
A post-mortem on the bodies is currently underway at the Lee Funeral Home where several MPs, family members and friends have gathered.
A relative to one of the deceased body guards asked the Government to ensure justice is delivered.
“The person who committed this heinous act hit us below the belt… we are asking the police and all the Government security agencies to do thorough investigations to make sure those who did this are brought to book. Let the court decide their fate,” the uncle to Constable Samwel Lekakeny Mutonto stated.
“He has left a very young family…we appeal to the Government to help where they can because he died in the line of duty.”
The two officers killed with the lawmaker were identified as Constable Mutonto and Constable Samwel Kimathi Kailikia while the driver is Stephen Wambugu.
Police Spokesperson Masoud Mwinyi who addressed a press conference earlier on Wednesday said they cannot comment on the progress of investigations.
Sources however say they are pursuing men said to have carjacked a vehicle which they used to block that of the MP on Kenyatta Avenue where they shot him dead alongside his bodyguards and a driver.
