The Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti has named British soldiers connected to the murder of Agnes Wanjiru who was killed in 2012.

Speaking on Thursday, December 2, Kinoti said he is in the process of recording statements from the 14 soldiers who will identify the perpetrator of the heinous crime.

Kinoti who was informing the National Assembly Defense and Foreign Relations committee on the state of the investigations said that his homicide team is ready to travel to the United Kingdom (UK) to interrogate the soldiers adding that he has established communication with the Royal Military Police in the UK.

The 14 include Kgn Thornborrow J. (39114703), Kgn McKenna LJ.(30101459),Cpl Byrne SC. (25157836),Sgt Miller SJ (25113314),Sgt Higgins ST (25055002),Kgn Bradshaw KA (30098525),Kgn Giles DP,A Coy (30109694) and Armitage AJ,A Coy (25133273).

"Since the Kenyan authorities retain the jurisdiction of the case, it is incumbent upon the investigating team in collaboration with Royal military police to interview and subsequently record statements from the persons of interests," Kinoti said.

The DCI boss told the Parliamentarians that he is yet to establish whether Wanjiru was killed in the room booked by the soldiers in the hotel and dumped in the septic tank or if she was killed on their way to the room.

"It is crystal clear that the deceased never returned to the bar and was murdered by a British soldier in uniform who was lastly seen with her. That septic tank where the deceased's body was discovered and retrieved is in the same direction where the deceased and the soldier were seen heading to," Kinoti said.
