Five more DCI officers arrested over missing Ruto’s election experts

Five more DCI officers arrested over the disappearance and suspected murder of Ruto’s election experts.

On Wednesday, five more police officers were arrested in connection with the disappearance and alleged murder of the two Indians who were employed by the presidential campaign team of William Ruto.

Five police officers were among the 21 who were first ordered to appear before the Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) detectives, according to sources with knowledge of the matter.

The suspects will be arraigned in court on Thursday, October 27, as the probe into the Indians’ whereabouts continues.

Zulfiqar Khan, Mohamed Zaid, and taxi driver Nicodemus Mwania were last seen leaving a club in Westlands after a night of partying on July 23. 

They are believed to have been kidnapped near a hotel on Mombasa Road. 

The two Indians were slated to be part of President William Ruto’s campaign team prior to their disappearance. 

As inquiries into the disappearance of the two missing Indians and their Kenyan driver intensified last week, bones, clothes, and belts thought to be theirs were taken from the Aberdare wilderness to Nairobi for forensic study.

Investigations narrowed down to 12 officers who were part of the disbanded Special Service Unit (SSU), believed to have participated in the abduction of the three men. 

The Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) questioned at least 21 policemen last week at their Upper Hill, Nairobi, headquarters.
