Makueni, Kenya: Police in Mbooni have been deployed to the rural home of the departed Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo following an attempt by suspected thugs to break into his grave. Mbooni East OCPD James Baraza confirmed they had received information that some people had planned to steal the casket containing the remains of the late Mutula.
The incident reportedly happened on Friday night though relatives declined to discuss the matter referring reporters to the police. The police boss said the suspects did not accomplish their mission as employees and neighbours raised the alarm forcing them to flee.
The number of the suspected raiders could not be immediately established but the OCPD said investigations have been launched. “We received intelligence reports that there were some people planning to raid the Woyani home of the late Mutula and moved with speed to tackle the matter,” said Baraza. - The Standard.
