Detectives are now looking for one Denis Karani Gachoki, the prime suspect in the murder of Samuel Mugoh Muvota at Mirema drive on Monday.
The suspect who has been termed as armed and dangerous stole a firearm from a police officer in Mombasa and has since then been in hiding.
“Detectives are looking for one Denis Karani Gachoki, the main suspect behind the daylight murder of Samuel Mugoh Muvota. The armed and dangerous man is suspected to be in possession of a firearm that was snatched from a stupefied Police officer, after a round of drinks at a popular joint in Mombasa, in November 2020.

- Kasarani man cornered and shot in broad daylight
Efforts by detectives to arrest him have been futile since the thug who is well-loaded influences rogue cops who tip him off once an operation for his arrest has been launched.” Said DCI
The detectives have gathered intelligence that the two fell out over the sharing of the proceeds of their operations before organizing his daylight murder. He is now believed to have crossed the country.
“The detectives based at DCI’s Comms unit have since gathered that Gachoki, recently fell out with his boss Muvota over sharing of proceeds from their Pishori trade, and beautiful women who would first pay with their flesh before being enlisted to the mafia-style organization.
This among other beef is suspected to have led to a bitter fallout leading to Monday’s daylight murder of Samuel Mugoh Muvota, who has left behind seven grieving widows and many children. Forensic Cyber detectives picked Gachoki’s last signal deep inside burnt forest, hours after the murder. We believe that the suspect has already crossed the border to a neighbouring country.” Said DCI
