City politician, three suspects arrested over Kilimani assault caught on video

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has arrested four suspects, including a city politician, who were captured in an amateur video assaulting a man.

The four have been identified as Robert Momanyi, who contested for the Makadara parliamentary seat on a Jubilee ticket, Mr Collins Neriko, Mr Stanley Rimbere and Mr Stephen Kimeu.

They are currently locked up at the Kilimani police station.

“Four suspects captured on video assaulting a man have been arrested and placed in lawful custody. Three others who are at large are being sought by detectives to be charged on Monday,” read a statement by the DCI on Twitter.

Nairobi News cannot publish the video due to its violent content.


The victim, Kelvin Mango Oduor, told Nairobi News that there was bad blood between him and the rest after he spoke bad things about them.

“I had said some secrets about one of them and it is then that things started going bad for me,” he said.

He said that the politician picked him from his house and they were headed to a party when things turned ugly.

According to him, when they reached at an apartment in Kilimani, people attending the party confronted him and started assaulting him.

In the assault video, which has gone viral on social media, the victim is seen kneeling down while raising his hands before a man kicks him on the stomach and whips him on the head.

The four suspects are expected to be arraigned in court on Monday.
