Police State That The Murder of KBC's Betty Barasa Was a Planned Assassination as New Details Emerge

Police have reported that the gunmen who were behind teh gruesome murder of KBC video editor Betty Barasa were on a planned assassination mission.

According to a report by the Star, the journalist lost her life after encountering a single bullet from an AK 47 riffle or other combat riffled on the evening on Tuesday last week minutes after she arrived at her residence in Oloolua, Ngong.

The police reported that the gunmen were in constant communication with unknown people and shorty after killing the journalist, one was heard saying 'tumemaliza' (we have accomplished).

Officers from the DCI have been at the scene since Tuesday night with the aim of getting the truth of what transpired during the dreadful day.

“The gang seemed to have been experts out to eliminate the lady. The other things they stole were to cover up the incident,” a detective told the Star yesterday.

Some of those who have recorded statements with the detectives are Betty's husband Geoffrey, their house help and a friend to Betty identified as Tony.

Experts said that the most obvious motive of such kind of murder is usually to hide a secret especially when someone comes across a closely guarded secret.

The police are also carrying out investigations to know whether the gun used have been used elsewhere.

Mr. Barasa is the head of finance at the National Museums of Kenya
