Speaking during an interview with radio stations based in Mt Kenya on Friday, March 17, Deputy President Gachagua said he was aware of the matter, adding that he trusts that Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki is dealing with it conclusively.
“Kindiki is appraised on the matter and it is progressing well. We are in the same government and I can only address it if he is unable. That young man should get justice so that the cause of his death is determined.
“If at all anyone is involved in his death, the law should take its cause,” the deputy president said.
This comes hours after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations announced the conclusion of the first phase of investigations into Mwathi’s death.
In the statement, the DCI indicated that the first phase of the investigation involved interviewing the first cluster of witnesses in the case.
Homicide detectives also conducted a forensic examination of the scene, and retrieved CCTV footage that captured the deceased’s last moments.
