NHIF staffer death: Businessman arrested in connection with the case


Detectives investigating the death of National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) staffer, Lilian Waithera, have made an arrest.

The 38-year-old businessman was arrested in connection with the case and grilled at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters on February 20.

He admitted to carrying his licensed firearm on the day of the incident but claimed he left it in his car before running errands.

He said he did not ascend any buildings in the downtown Nairobi area of Kaunda Street at approximately 5 o’clock.

During interrogation, he denied firing the bullet that killed Waithera.

Police are investigating whether her death was a targeted execution or a result of a stray bullet.

The businessman surrendered his firearm to the police, and it was subjected to ballistic examination.

The case has sparked outrage, and the police are pursuing every lead to find the culprit.

The family and colleagues of the deceased are mourning her loss.
