Police 'recover car used in George Muchai killing'


“The women say they think the gang wanted a powerful car to use in their mission but could not get the BMW after the driver managed to escape,” said an officer aware of the probe.
At one point, the women said they heard the gang argue in their Kikuyu dialect on why their gang leader agreed to take half of the fee for their mission. Later, they told police, the gang drove at a high speed possibly in pursuit of a car before they heard gunshots after the vehicle stopped in the city centre.
The women said they were robbed of mobile phones and Sh100. The mobile phones were yet to be used by yesterday. The car then sped off to Kimandura where they were abandoned at about 4am. Director of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro said yesterday they were making good progress in the case.
“We are yet to know the motive but we may know the killers. We have the car that was used in the attack,” said Muhoro.
Muchai, police constables Samuel Lekakeny Montata and Samuel Kimathi Kairingia and driver Stephen Ituu Wambugu were killed on Saturday at around 2.50am.
Meanwhile, The Standard confirmed yesterday that Galileo’s Lounge, where the late MP was spotted making merry the night before he died, remains shut on Sundays and Mondays and has done so for the last eight years.¬† – The Standard
