Drama filled Kiamaciri police station on Sunday morning after the family of a 64-year old-woman who was allegedly murdered by her Ugandan shamba boy were informed that the murder suspect  escaped under unclear circumstances.
The daughter of the deceased, Calorine Wangui, said she was shocked to be informed by the  officer  commanding station (OCS ) that the Ugandan national accused of killing her mother on November  had fled.

“I want justice and the suspect rearrested. I used my own money to see the suspect brought here from Uganda, right now they have released him,” Wangui said amid cries. Esther Wamuyu, a relative of the deceased, wondered how a suspect could escape from a guarded police station.

“We are going to stay here until we are given a proper explanation,” Wamuyu said.

Kirinyaga Senator James Kamau Murango has demanded explanation from the Interior Ministry as to why Kiamaciri has become notorious with wrongdoings.

“This is the same police station where  police officers sold exhibit of deadly beer and over 20 people died at Kangai and Mutithi wards. Why always Kiamaciri?” Murango posed.
