DCI under scrutiny for deleting images of dead robbery suspects


On Sunday, March 12, two suspected robbers were killed by a multi-agency police team after they had robbed a Sacco’s branch in Murang’a County.

According to a statement by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the officers traced the two suspects to their hideout in Kigumo and engaged them in a shootout at Kinyona Forest.

The officers recovered Ksh1.13 million in cash, including two stashes of brand new Ksh200 notes bearing the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) seal, as well as two rifles stolen from their colleagues.

The deceased were taken to the Murang’a Level V Hospital Mortuary for identification, while police officers launched a manhunt for their accomplices.

However, the DCI’s report raised questions after they deleted images of the dead suspects, leading one Kenyan to demand an explanation on social media.

As of publication time, the DCI had not responded to the queries raised by members of the public.
