Speaking in an interview with Mount Kenya radio stations on Friday March 17, Vice President Gachagua said he was aware of the issue, adding that he was confident that the secretary of the Council of Ministers of Internal Affairs, Kithure Kindiki, handled the issue thoroughly.
“Kindiki is an expert on the issue and things are going well. We are in the same state and I can only handle him if he can’t do it. This young man should get justice so that the cause of his death can be determined.
“If anyone is involved in his death, the law should take its action,” the vice president said.
This comes a few hours after the Directorate of Criminal Investigation announced the completion of the first phase of the investigation into Mwathi’s death.
In the statement, the DCI said the first phase of the investigation is to interview the first witnesses in the case.
Homicide detectives also conducted a forensic examination of the scene and obtained CCTV images that captured the last moments of the deceased.
Additionally, DCI forensic experts assisting homicide investigators collected significant evidence that is currently being analyzed.
The DCI also revealed that the investigation is now proceeding to the second phase, where several persons of interest will be interviewed, and appropriate recommendations will be made to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji.
DCI has asked the public to be patient as they continue to work to determine the exact circumstances of Jeff’s death.
