Following the murder of Fredrick Kibet Cheretei, Loyamorok Ward Member of County Assembly (MCA) and Simon Kitambaa alias Pepee, the Chairman of the National Committee on Population and Development (NCPD), in Marigat Division, Baringo County, on 18th February 2017, the Police commenced immediate investigations to unearth the authors of the crime.
As of now, we have recorded a number of crucial witness statements and from other persons of interest. From the preliminary and technical investigations, we have identified six individuals who are the subject of our further forensic inquiries, out of whom some could eventually be charged in court.
The DCI officers investigating the matter are under strict instructions to expedite the inquiries and arraign the culprits before court, as soon as possible.
We appeal to the public to remain calm and refrain from unnecessary speculation or finger pointing that may compromise our investigations.
