Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Monday, September 16, made another arrest in connection with the Ksh72 heist money trail.
The DCI announced in a Twitter post that Benard Sewanga, a G4S officer who had gone into hiding after the heist was arrested in a newly-rented house in Ruiru.
He later led detectives to his father-in-law’s house in Lurambi, Kakamega County, where the detectives recovered the said Ksh1 million.
“Ksh1 million which is believed to be part of Ksh72 million stolen from Nairobi West has been recovered from a cowshed in Lurambi by DCI detectives working on intelligence,” posted DCI.
Reports reaching Kenyanbulletin.com stated that the money, covered in a black bag, was found buried in a shallow hole in at his father-in-law’s cowshed.
DCI boss George Kinoti confirmed that the suspect was escorted back to Nairobi where he is set to face charges.
Sewanga’s case brings DCI’s Monday arrest count to three in one day as two other suspects were arrested today morning.
