Suspected gangsters posing as detectives raided the Nairobi home of Homa Bay Governor Cyprian Awiti and robbed him of cash, phones and jewellery.
The four armed men entered the governor’s house in Karen at 8.30pm and stole Sh400,000.
Karen police boss Cunningham Suiyanka on Wednesday said the robbery is being investigated.
He said police suspect the robbery was an inside job.
Four employees, including a gardener, a watchman and two others have recorded statements with police.
He said the governor’s house is not guarded by Administration Police officers as required by the law.
