Majority leader Murkomen Kipchumba has cried foul in the heavily lauded investigations into the murder of the attached officer to Deputy President William Ruto’s office sergeant Kipyegon Kenei.
Ruto’s close ally has since alleged that there was a suspicious attempt to transfer the head of the ballistic department at DCI.
In addition, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator has insinuated that the two foreigners who accompanied Echesa were mercenaries for hire.
In collaboration, Dennis Itumbi has questioned why the DCI transferred two senior officers (Inspectors) from Homicide for presenting a report that is inconsistent with their conclusion.DCI
Why is the DCI hiding the forensic/ballistic & govt chemist reports? What is he hiding? Was there an attempt to transfer the head of ballistic department at DCI? And If so Why? Kenyans want to know the truth.

For the drama, you are doing well, but now @DCI_Kenya – Mr.Kinoti – tell us who are the mercenaries shown on the CCTV footage and more seriously, Who Killed Kenei? You told us there were 3 people in his house – Who are they? Who in @Safaricom_Care erased Data?

“We want justice for Kenei.We want the truth. DCI must stop coverup. Who are the 2 foreigners that accompanied Echesa?Are they mercenaries for hire? What is their mission in Kenya & DP office?Why aren’t they arrested?Who was communicating with Kenei (Safaricom data must be there),” said Murkomen.
The Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti on Thursday afternoon confirmed that Kenei was murdered in cold blood and his suicide stage-managed.
Through a brief demo, Kinoti showed how Kenei might have been murdered and pointed out that had the deceased shot himself, based on the blood spatter, he would have fallen on his bed.

Kenei was among the officers who were summoned to appear at the DCI headquarters to record a statement in connection with the fake arms deal but did not report on duty on February 19, 2020.
He was later found dead inside his house.
Through CCTV footage shared with the press, Kenei can be seen interacting with some of the suspects in the Sh39 billion military equipment tender deal.
CCTV footage shows Echesa was at DP's office with two foreigners for more than an hour. Footage also shows Kenei was at the office the day Echesa visited. pic.twitter.com/03kkyoupBK
