The death of Samuel Ngati a member of the elite Recce squad that is tasked to take care of the President, his Deputy, as well as their families, raised questions.

This comes even before the DCI unearths the 'murder' of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei who was also attached to Ruto's office.

In the Kenei case, DCI boss George Kinoti had rubbished suicide claims and said they had enough clues "linking powerful individuals to the murder and subsequent cover-up."

Two years down the line, the matter is yet to be concluded. 

According to the Standard newspaper, detectives concluded that Kenei was drugged and murdered by people probably known to him.

Detectives are also mulling over the possibility that Kenei could have been murdered elsewhere and his body dumped in his house where it was found on February 20, 2020.

Kenyans have mounted pressure on detectives to establish who killed Kenei and what was the motive.

Kenei was found dead in his house at Villa Franca in Imara Daima the same day he was expected to record a statement with the DCI over the Sh39.5 fake military arms deal.

Here are similarities between the two mysterious deaths of Kenei and Ngatia.

  1. More than two spent cartridges were recovered from both scenes, raising questions how someone who committed suicide if any, shot himself more than once.
  2. They both had bullet wounds in the head and were fired from the right side and exited to the left.
  3.  They were both members of the Recce squad, which forms part of the presidential escort unit, is one of the best-trained team in the country.

A family spokesman said Ngatia was initially attached to State House before he was moved to the DP’s office.

Here are more details about Ngatia's puzzling death.
