DCI arrest prison officers accused of killing inmate at Naivasha prison

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officers have arrested two prison officers in connection with the murder of Simon Nduro- a former inmate at the Naivasha Prison.

Sergeant Dennis Wandati Masibo and Constable Obadiah Meriti Lansika alias Masai who both work at the Naivasha Maximum prison will be charged with the murder of the convict contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the penal code.

According to an autopsy report, the prisoner had multiple bruises on his body with blunt force trauma being the cause of death according to Government Pathologist Titus Ngulungu.

In his report, Dr Ngulungu noted that the inmate had bruises on the lower back, hips, hands and neck inflicted by a blunt object.

The autopsy report differed with a report from the prison department which claimed the inmate succumbed to an asthma attack.

Prisoners who managed to pass information to detectives following Nduro’s death in June said the convict was beaten by 8 warders.

He had been serving life imprisonment.

The inmate’s mother Mary Njeri said her son had been the sole bread winner of the family before he was incarcerated.

“I leave everything to God and it is very painful to first lose your son by being jailed and later being killed by people who were supposed to reform him,” said Njeri.
