Dennis Karani Gachok, the prime suspect in the murder of controversial businessman ‘Mchele Boss’ in Mirema Drive Nairobi, has surrendered to DCI a week after his manhunt was launched. Dennis who spoke exclusively to Journalist on Monday at the DCI Headquarters denied killing Samuel Mugota, saying he had only met him twice, in Nairobi and Meru.
He also confirmed that he has a fraud-related case in court in which he is accused of receiving money believed to have been acquired through fraud.
Detectives on Friday said Gachoki used a firearm that was stolen from an intoxicated officer at a popular joint in Mombasa in November 2020 to ruthlessly execute Muvota along Mirema Drive in Nairobi’s Roysambu neighbourhood on Monday, May 16, afternoon.
Hours after the murder, forensic cyber detectives were able to use Gachoki’s phone to triangulate his position to Burnt Forest in Uasin Gishu but the trail went cold with sleuths of the opinion that the suspect successfully fled to a neighbouring country.
Gachoki has apparently been on the DCI’s radar for quite some time owing to his alleged involvement in the ‘Pishori’ syndicate but efforts to reel him in have proven unsuccessful.
