The Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji has ordered investigations to reveal the circumstances under which a man from Machakos was allegedly murdered over Sh9m insurance policy. Makau Musyoki, 27, died under mysterious circumstances next to their homestead in Kangundo, Machakos County. A postmortem revealed that he was hit on the head by a blunt object.
Police investigations so have identified his uncle, Evans Kasyoki, as the prime suspect who orchestrated his murder in order to receive a compensation of Sh9m from Jubilee Insurance. DPP Haji has acted as a rejoinder to a news feature that was aired by local TV station which focused on the circumstances of his death and the botched justice that saw suspect the freed under unclear scenario. “The DPP attention has been drawn to a news feature appearing on Prime time news in regard to the Kangundo incident. Due to the nature of the case, the DPP has directed that immediate legal steps be taken to ensure justice is done,” reads a statement from Haji’s office, posted on twitter.
He has cautioned that anyone found to be obstructing the administration of justice for the family of the deceased will equally be prosecuted. Statement further reads: “DPP further wishes to inform the public that obstruction of due process is serious criminal offence & any person who will be found culpable shall face full force of the law.” The expose reveals that the deceased had two life insurance policies with a renowned insurance company worth Sh1m and Sh8m respectively. It further implicates Kasyoki implying that he took the life policies using the deceased name, and went as far as making a death certificate to present for the company for payment.
