Suspected kidnapper gunned down in Kiandutu, firearm recovered.


Police in Thika on Saturday evening gunned down a suspected kidnapper in the sprawling Kiandutu slums and recovered a pistol with four rounds of ammunition.

Confirming the incident, Kiambu Police County Commander Ali Nuno identified the suspect as 32-year old Dennis Kimani Mwitheri aka Denoo whom he described as a dangerous criminal who is part of a gang that has been terrorising Thika residents for a while.

Nuno said that the deceased was traced following the kidnap of two girls from Kenyatta Secondary School in Makongeni Thika on May 1st 2019.

“The girls’ parents reported of their missing daughters on May 2nd and following intense investigations by our officers, they were traced at the suspect’s house in Kiandutu. We laid a trap to nab him and when the police arrived at his house, he immediately drew a gun but was hit by our officers and fatally injured,” explained the Kiambu police boss.

He added that the suspect has been on the run and on the police “wanted list” regarding to several robbery and criminal incidents in the area.
