The late Kipyegon Kenei, a police officer who worked at Deputy President William Ruto’s Harambee Annex office was murdered, detectives revealed.

Investigators  say that the officer was drugged before he was shot through the chin. The lone bullet exited from the top of his head, killing him instantly.

Also puzzling the officers is the missing data from his phone which was wiped clean days before he was found dead at his house.

A suicide note that was found near his body did not bear the officers handwriting, leaving detectives confused as to motive of its existence.

One of the officers privy to the investigations said that the crime scene had been tampered with and had been made to look like suicide.

The officer’s gun was lying close to his lifeless body.

The officer was in charge on the day ex-sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid visited Ruto’s office long before it emerged that he was smack in the middle of a Ksh.39billion military equipment scam.

The late Kenei will be ferried to his Chamasis village home for burial this Saturday.

The decision  was made after his family and friends met at a hotel in Nakuru on Tuesday evening.

They unanimously agreed to have his body buried over the weekend.

The circumstances of his death have delayed burial arrangements since an officer who commits suicide is not given a 21 gun salute.
