Fake policemen storm governor’s home in Karen, steal Sh400k
Four armed men posing as police officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) stormed into the house of Homa Bay governor Cyprian Awiti in Karen on Tuesday night.
The gang robbed Mr Awiti’s family members of Sh400,000, phones and jewelry during the 8.30pm incident.
Karen OCPD Cunningham Suiyanka said police have initiated investigation into the robbery suspected to have been done in collaboration with the governor’s employees.
Mr Suiyanka said the governor was not in his house at the time of the incident.
He said the house is not guarded by Administration Police Officers as required by the law, but did not give an explanation to this.
Four employees, among them the gardener, a watchman and two others have recorded statements at the Karen Police station.
