Police Obtain Bomas CCTV Footage To Investigate Election Chaos

The National Police Service (NPS) has commenced investigations into the chaotic and violent scenes that were witnessed at the Bomas of Kenya on Monday moments before the announcement of the results of the presidential poll by IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati.

On the day of the incident, Chebukati had to be whisked away by security personnel after unidentified men stormed the podium and disrupted his would-be address.

Order was only restored after police reinforcements secured the stage and drove out the rowdy protesters.

In a statement on Wednesday, NPS noted that it had secured CCTV footage that would aid in investigations.

“On the second incident which involved fracas at the IEBC National Tallying Centre-Bomas, police are seized of the matter and pursuing investigation. CCTV files have been collected and forwarded for further forensic analysis to aid investigation,” tweeted NPS.

The police force also revealed that it was looking into the kidnapping and murder of 53-year-old Embakasi East IEBC Returning Officer Daniel Musyoka whose body was found dumped in Oloitoktok, Kajiado County on Monday night.

“DCI homicide detectives investigating the murder witnessed a post-mortem today and samples have been taken for further forensic analysis. NPS therefore appeals to the public to volunteer in confidence information that will assist in investigations of the two incidences though our toll free lines,” added the statement.
