KISII, Kenya Oct 21 Former Police Commissioner Duncan Wachira, who served between 1996 to 1998, is dead.

President Uhuru Kenyatta sent a message of condolence to the family, relatives and friends of the former police chief, describing him as a dedicated officer.

In his message of comfort, the President remembered the former police boss as a true servant of the nation and a patriot who was committed to the wellbeing of the country.

“Mr Wachira is also remembered for his no-nonsense approach to the fight against crime, especially in Nairobi. It is during his time as the top cop, I remember, that many organised criminal syndicates were dismantled,” the President eulogised.
