Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya was on Friday robbed of valuable items worth Sh2 million after burglars broke into his office.

The items stolen include two laptops, two video cameras and a television.

At 2am in the morning the burglars carried out the daring event which has left the residents of Kwale worried.

Matuga police boss Michael Mwaura said at the moment they do not know many people were involved in break in but they suspect it may have been an inside job.

"The suspect easily gained entry into the office without breaking the door," he told a local media.

Public service chief officer Nurain Mwatsahu added he also suspects it was an inside job.

"I can say this is a well-coordinated thing by people within this building since no doors were broken," he said.

Two guards were on duty and Administration Police officers were guarding the adjacent National Treasury offices, Mwaura added.

After breaking in to the governor’s office,the burglars also gained access to other offices in the building, which houses the Public Service Administration, Lands, Education and Payroll departments according to the police.

"We are disappointed by the laxity displayed by our enforcement officers on duty,” Mwatsahu said.

Mwatsahu further added they could not rule out interference by Governor Salim Mvurya's opponents out to get crucial information on his campaign strategies.

"We think this incident has something to do with Governor’s political rivals who might want to know what’s going on in his offices,” he said.

Police later recovered all the stolen items with the help of a matatu driver who filed a report about a suspicious person who boarded their matatu with the electronic gadgets at 4am.

The driver said in his statement that the suspect drew out a dagger and threatened to attack him, but fled instead, leaving the items behind.
