Suspected gunmen posing as police detectives on Tuesday night raided the house of Homa Bay Governor Cyprian Awiti in Nairobi’s Karen estate.
The four thugs who claimed to be from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, robbed the governor of Sh400,000 cash, phones and jewellery in the 8.30 pm incident.
The governor and his family were not present at the time of the robbery.
Karen police boss Cunningham Suiyanka said police suspect the robbery was an inside job as investigations continue.
Four employees, including a gardener, a watchman and two others have recorded statements with police.
Mr Suiyanka noted that the governor’s house is not guarded by Administration Police officers as required by the law.
