Detectives in Kericho County have arrested one suspect in connection with the murder of Rai Cement General Manager Chatan Vyas.

According to the police, the suspect, a security guard at the late Vyas’ factory in Sigowet Sub County, was captured by CCTV cameras moving the ladder which his two other accomplices used to scale the factory’s perimeter wall into the deceased’s house.

“He was arrested by a team of detectives drawn from the Belgut Directorate of Criminal Investigations after a review of the footage,” Kericho County DCIO Stephen Magwe said on Thursday.

The officer stated that the suspect is helping police with crucial leads to the arrest of two other suspects who are still at large.
