Missing Deputy Governor’s driver arrested drunk in Mombasa

He was drunk and had abandoned the multi million government vehicle.

On Monday, Kitui County Police Commander Antony Kamitu said the driver who has been missing since Thursday last week, was promptly arrested and locked up at Bamburi Police Station.

The officer is set to be transferred to Kitui, where he will be facing charges of misusing government property, namely a Deputy Governor’s vehicle for non-official work.

Mombasa police commander Johnston Ipara mentioned that the vehicle, a Land Cruiser Prado TX of registration number KBX 893V, which had been reported missing with the driver, was found abandoned in Likoni.

“We are yet to get the driver. We are working to know who was the driver. I am yet to get more details on it,” Mr Ipara had said earlier as was quoted by the Nation.

Panic had gripped the county government of Kitui following the disappearance of Mr Kang’oti, who allegedly disappeared moments after dropping Deputy Governor Wathe Nzau at a requiem mass of ten pupils who perished last week in a freak accident.

Earlier, official communication from Kitui government indicated the driver's phone signal had been traced to Kiembeni in Bamburi estate, Mombasa County.
