Mwangaza Points a Finger at Cops Guarding her Home in Investigation of Blogger’s Murder

In the ongoing investigation into the murder of blogger Bernard Muthiani, also known as ‘Sniper,’ Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza is calling for the questioning of the police guarding her official residence.

The governor has urged detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations not to exhibit bias in the probe, emphasizing the importance of ensuring justice prevails in Muthiani’s murder case.

“The first people who should be questioned are the police on the day and night shift because they are stationed there (gate). We want transparency in the ongoing investigations. If someone is arrested, we want to know why, and it should be based on evidence,” she said.

While addressing the faithful at her church, the Baite Family Fellowship (BFF) in Makutano, Governor Mwangaza clarified that being a government facility, the official governor’s residence is under constant police surveillance.

She was responding to allegations suggesting that the blogger may have visited the official governor’s residence before his disappearance.

“The residence is guarded by the police the whole day because it is state property. There is a book at the gate which the police use. I want to appeal to the investigators, do not be biased,” she said.

Mwangaza Reads Political Malice

“We do not live in a banana republic. We have a Constitution and are appealing as a church that all government agencies doing their work in Meru, should not be biased. Do not be influenced by politics, by people we defeated in the elections,” Mwangaza added.

Mwangaza, seemingly discerning political undertones in the ongoing discourse surrounding the blogger’s death, emphasized the importance of transparent investigations for the sake of justice.

“We want justice, not only for that child but everybody in Meru. We do not want bad politics in Meru and we will be demanding justice and for the government to undertake its mandate,” she stated.

Governor Mwangaza also clarified that her son had not been arrested in connection with the matter, refuting the allegations circulating on social media.

“It is pure propaganda, and it is a shame that we rebuke,” she said.

Police have since arrested Frederick Muriuki Kiugu, Timothy Kinoti, Kenneth Mutua Matiri alias Gasigi, Franklin Kimathi alias Ras, and Kenneth Murangiri Guantai, also known as Tali (a brother to the governor), along with Vincent Murithi.
