DCI Officer Shot Dead While Combating Thugs

By Virginia Mwangi / March 26, 2019




Police are seeking to arrest a 35-year-old man identified as Simon Kinyua Kamau for allegedly shooting dead a DCI (Directorate of Criminal Investigations) officer in Taveta town, Taita Taveta County on 25th March 2019.

The robber, Simon Kinyua, had earlier been captured by CCTV cameras stealing in Mombasa.

The DCI officer died at Taveta Sub-county Hospital where he had been rushed for treatment. The officer was a Corporal attached to a squad only identified as SPIV in Mombasa.

SPIV according to Officers in Mombasa is mandated to fight criminals and petty offenders.

Simon Kinyua has been out on bond after another pending case of robbery with violence case in Mombasa got him arrested.

Kenya’s DCI George Kinoti has faulted the Judiciary system saying the suspect was able to kill and harm because he had been released from jail where he belonged.

“He has killed an officer who was out to ensure the country is safe. We will hunt him,” Kinoti declared.

According to officers in Mombasa, the deceased had trailed the suspects from Mombasa and was in communication with officers in Taita Taveta to arrest the thug who is said to have been in the company of an accomplice.

The deceased DCI officer was shot in the stomach and head, killing him on the spot.

Kinyua is believed to have been on the run to Nairobi but alighted in Voi town after police officers arrested his accomplices on Sunday.

It was in Voi town that the tragedy occurred after a team of officers was dispatched to arrest Kinyua.

Simon Kinyua, obviously a dangerous thug, together with his accomplice is said to have escaped to Tanzania on a boda-boda, which was recovered at the border.

Members of the public are encouraged to forward any information on the thugs to speed up their arrest.
