The authorities are calling on anyone with information regarding the same to report to the station.
Earlier, Mwangi shared his tribulations via social media that the home which was still under construction was bombed by state operatives linked to Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua.
The “Unbounded” author claimed Dr Mutua was responsible for his loss as he is a “molester and abusive man”.
The attack comes just a few days after Mwangi unleashed photos of the Governor’s ex-wife Lillian Nganga with her new lover, Juliani living their best lives.
The photos created a public uproar with those allied to Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua blasting Mwangi for what they termed “unfair treatment.”
