“That morning, Police commander Kingi’s driver was supervising a laborer namely George Some who was cutting grass in his official compound within Kizingo area, when the driver identified as constable Kimani went to his boss with news that he had just found a gun wrapped in a green disposable carrier bag at the back of the house,” reads the police report in part.

A multi-agency team deployed to Mr Kingi’s home found the firearm loaded with 15 bullets.

Officers are probing how the stolen firearm made it to Kingi’s home yet no one had been arrested over the robbery.

A report filed earlier this week at the Mombasa central police station showed that the firearm was stolen from Kingi on his way home when he was allegedly waylaid by armed men in a tuk-tuk.
