DCI arrest prison officers accused of killing inmate at Naivasha prison


The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officers have arrested two prison officers in connection with the murder of Simon Nduro( a former inmate at the Naivasha Prison.)

Sergeant Dennis Wandati Masibo and Constable Obadiah Meriti Lansika will be charged with the murder of the convict contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the penal code.

According to an autopsy report by Government Pathologist Titus Ngulungu the prisoner had multiple bruises on his body with blunt force trauma being the cause of death.

He noted that Nduro had bruises on the lower back, hips, hands and neck.

The prison department claimed the inmate succumbed to an asthma attack which differs from the report by the pathologist.

Prisoners who managed to pass information to detectives following Nduro’s death in June said the convict was beaten by 8 warders.
