A Recce Squad officer is being detained by police over the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani.
Jennings Odhiambo Orlando was arrested on Thursday evening by homicide detectives.
He was taken to Muthaiga police station for questioning. Investigators have reportedly established that Orlando was together with suspect Joseph ‘Jowie’ Irungu at the home of Monica in Kilimani.
“We want to know if he actually went into the Monica’s house on that fateful day,” an investigator told the Star on Friday.
Preliminary details obtained by police revealed that Irungu and the officer had known each other for three months.
Monica was found with her hands and legs tied, mouth taped and throat slit. Her body was deposited in a bathtub at her apartment in Kilimani, Nairobi.
Detectives have also searched Orlando’s house at Recce Headquarters in Ruiru for clues. Orlando is said to be attached to the US Embassy in Nairobi.
