The Kahawa Law Courts on Wenesday has ruled the the Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) can go ahead to investigate four police officers of the Disbanded Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Special Service Unit (SSU)
According to Senior Principal Magistrate Diana Mochache in the Wenesday ruling, advised the unit to pass their findings from the investigation to the Inspector General of Police.
“In case an issue gets the attention of the IAU, the IAU can go ahead and investigate and after this, the IAU will decide whether to continue internally or otherwise. Argument by the respondents that the issue was to be resolved internally are incorrect,” stated Magistrate Mochache.
“As long as IPOA hasn’t taken over this case, the Internal Affairs Unit can continue with this issue…No proof that this case is politically instigated…The unit can investigate then pass their findings to the IG.”
Mochache further added “However, the IAU cannot source any information from the phones of the respondents without a court order, and in case this happens it will be considered a violation.”
The four; Peter Muthee, Francis Ndinye, John Kamau and Joseph Mbugua were arrested over the weekend thus facing charges of allegedly abusing the office and kidnapping
They were imprisoned in linking with the abduction of two Indians - Mohamed Kidwai, Zulfiqar Khan and their driver Nicodemus Mwange, on July 24, 2022.
