Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) detectives on Friday arrested three suspects in connection with the murder of former Kilifi deputy governor Kenneth Kamto.

Detectives from the DCI Homicide Forensic Unit tracked down the suspects to Kisumu Ndogo area in Mombasa's Nyali Estate.

The police also recovered a phone that was stolen from Kamto's house help during the ordeal at his house.

Murdered in his own House

The Late Kamto was murdered in his own house in Nyali by assailants who are suspected to have followed him from a night club he had visited earlier in the night.

The incident that took place on Jamhuri Day 2018 was witnessed by Kamto's wife, Fauzia.

According to her statement, the gang threatened to kill her as her husband laid in the floor bleeding while they ransacked the home to find money.

The gang took money and car keys from the home before locking the gate on their way out.

Fauzia and her house help tried to call for an ambulance but her husband passed away before receiving any medical care.
