DCI Officer Attacked by Thugs At Kahawa West, Nairobi

According to the reports made by the Directorate of criminal investigations (DCI), a DCI officer, Joseph Mwange, was attacked by four armed thugs on January 6 at Kahawa West, Nairobi.

The DCI revealed that the officer was accompanied by his wife as they were coming from a party in Roysambu, Nairobi at 4.00 a.m. The gang approached them along Kamiti road close to Jacaranda estate.

"A four-man gang accosted them along Kamiti road, close to Jacaranda estate," the DCI stated.

According to the DCI, the thugs masquerading as police officers flagged down Joseph's vehicle and asked him where he was going.

The thugs followed the detective's vehicle, and as he stopped to open the gate to his house, one of the criminals opened fire and shot him before fleeing into the darkness.

"His wife immediately rushed him to Kenyatta University hospital where he is currently admitted to the Intensive Care Unit in critical condition," the DCI stated.

Since then, a contingent of sleuths from three specialized units has been sent on a manhunt for the armed suspects.

"The Director of Criminal Investigations Mohamed Amin, wishes detective Mwange, a speedy recovery and sends his loved ones lots of love from the DCI family, following the unfortunate incident," the DCI stated.
