Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : DCI Releases Names and Photos of Five Suspects Wanted for Brutal Murder in Siaya County

In a bid to bring justice to the victims of a heinous crime, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has taken a significant step by releasing the names and photographs of five individuals wanted for the murder of a teacher and a police officer in Mahero, Siaya County. The incident took place on November 20, 2023, sending shockwaves through the community.

The suspects have been identified as Edward Wanyama Mukanga, also known as Ramadhan Mukanga, or Abu Naiyah, Edwin Omondi, alias Rashid, Simon Ochieng Ouma, known as Ali Baba or Obas, Hastings Omondi Odipi, also known as Umar, and Salim Jackoyo. All five suspects are from Siaya County and are currently evading capture.

According to the DCI, these individuals are wanted for various capital offenses, including the brutal murder of a teacher and a police officer who were part of the team invigilating the KCSE exams. The incident occurred in Siaya County, leaving the community in a state of shock and grief.

Despite efforts by the police to apprehend the suspects, they managed to escape the dragnet at Nina village on November 22. With the suspects still at large, the DCI is urging members of the public to come forward with any information that could lead to their arrest. Individuals can report anonymously through the hotline number 0800722203 or visit their nearest police station.

The DCI has described the gang as armed and dangerous, with one of the suspects believed to be leading a criminal organization in the Hawinga area of Siaya. Additionally, Omondi is suspected to be a member of a criminal gang responsible for a series of attacks in Siaya, Kisumu, and Busia counties.

The victims, a police officer and a teacher, were ambushed and tragically killed while escorting KCSE exam papers to Mahero Secondary School in Alego Usonga. The criminals made off with the officers’ firearms, further intensifying the urgency to apprehend them.

Fortunately, the diligent efforts of the DCI have yielded some success, as an AK47 rifle and an MP5 with 60 bullets, stolen from the police officers, were recovered. “They seem to be returnees from Somalia. We have also recovered a muffin, white boots, and a knife from them,” stated DCI boss Mohamed Amin, hinting at a possible connection to international criminal networks.

As the search for these dangerous criminals continues, the Siaya community remains on high alert. It is crucial for citizens to remain vigilant and cooperate with law enforcement agencies to ensure the swift apprehension of the suspects.
