DCI Detectives arrest man suspected to have broken into High Commissioner’s residence

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations DCI have on Wednesday August 5 arrested a man who allegedly broke into a Foreign High Commissioner’s residence and made away with household items.

According to the DCI, the man identified as Brian Mbache Libasi was arrested by DCI detectives from his hideout at Mwembeni area in Kibra and all household items reported to have been stolen during the incident recovered.

The sleuths have been pursuing the culprit, a former security guard who was on duty on the fateful day of the robbery at the High Commissioner’s residence in Kileleshwa.

Two carpets, a gas cooker, an LG fridge, shoes, bed sheets, curtains, a coffee table, a TV stand, a laptop among other items that were recovered from the suspect’s house have been retained as exhibits.

Following his arrest, the former security guard will now be arraigned in court on Wednesday, August 5.

The DCI, however, failed to reveal the name of the High Commissioner or the country he represents due to security reasons.

High Commissioners have been a target for crimes as the Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU) detectives on Monday, August 3, apprehended a 34-year old woman believed to be terror suspect.

The unit under the DCI stated that Tracy Wairimu Ndegwa sent two threatening letters to a High Commission in Nairobi on July, 31.
