Dennis Karani Gachoki, the main suspect in the Mirema Drive broad daylight shooting, has been released.
Gachoki, who was accused by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations Department (DCI) as an accomplice in the murder of businessman Samuel Muvota, was released on Wednesday, June 8.
The suspect was released after the prosecution told the court that there was not enough evidence linking Gachoki to the murder of the slain businessman.
“The respondent has been cooperative and has given us an easy time during the entire period of the investigation, so I’m requesting the miscellaneous file be closed, for we have not found any evidence linking Gachoki to the murder,” the lead investigating officer stated in court.
However, in its reports, the DCI had alleged that Gachoki was the driver of the car that was used by the shooter to flee the scene of crime.
The DCI are yet to release more details.
On the other hand, Samuel Mugota had not only recruited women but also young unsuspected men in the village promising them jobs. As they were promised government jobs, Mugota asked them to register sim cards and three bank accounts with their details.
Mugota on the other hand had been arrested 30 times in 11 years. He was stealing from his victim through women who stuperfyed their drinks while in late night clubs.
“He operated like a mafia criminal organisation, was a multi-millionaire with several real estate properties scattered across the city, a fleet of vehicles and seven wives …” the directorate said.
