Five more officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) who were attached to the disbanded Special Services Unit (SSU) have been arrested.

According to a notice by the  National Police Service’s Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) ,the four namely Corporals Joseph Mwenda Mbaya and David Chepcheng Kipsoi, as well as Constables Stephen Luseno matunda, Paul Njogu Muriithi and Simon Muhunga Gikonyo were apprehended in connection to the abduction of two missing Indians and their taxi driver in Nairobi.

They join four other officers and two civilians who were arrested for their alleged involvement into the foreigners' disappearance.

"They are being investigated for the offences of conspiracy to commit a felony contrary to Section 393 of the Penal Code and abduction contrary to Section 254 of the Penal Code,” the notice dated Wednesday, October 26 read.

The officers are currently being held at Industrial Area Police Station awaiting arraignment on Thursday.

The two Indians, Mohamed Zaid Sami Kidwai, Zulfiqar Ahmad Khan are said to have been part of a team that had come to Kenya to join an IT team for President William Ruto during campaigns, when they abducted on July 24, 2022 along with their driver Nicodemus Mwania Mwange near Ole Sereni and driven away in an unmarked car.

The recent disbandment of the SSU prompted investigations into their disappearances resulting in the arrest of Chief Inspector Peter Muthee, Corporals Joseph Mbugua, Francis Ndonye and John Kamau who were taken to the IAU Headquarters for grilling on October 22.

President William Ruto revealed that he had directed the disbandment of the unit to address extrajudicial killings in the country, to restore public trust in the police force.
