A tale of lies, witch hunt, and betrayal is unfolding in the lawsuit against renowned Kenyan Private Detective Jane Wawira Mugo.
Detective Jane has revealed the two high ranking officers one from the Kenya Police Service and another from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation(DCI) headquarters who were mentioned as the masterminders in the Citizen TV’s expose The Westlands Underworld.
In September 2019, the DCI in a press leases said Jane Mugoh was a criminal wanted by the state.
” Ms. Jane Wawira Mugoh a serial criminal is wanted by the DCI, for various criminal activities including robbery with violence, impersonation and threatening to kill,” DCI said in a statement that was attached to a tweet.
Despite the serious claims, DCI has never presented a single evidence against Jane Mugo on any of the charges.
In her defense, the Detective who has investigated five cases of National Interest including NYS Scandals says she is being hunted down by top government officials and cartels behind the cases she is investigating.
She points out DCI came for her following her investigation into the harassment and intimidation of a wealthy Asian family.
” I will never die kneeling for cartels, it’s better to die standing than kneeling down “, Jane says.
According to the detective, two top government officials betrayed, set her up, and sponsored the media to paint her as a serial criminal.
” My work as a Private Detective is a story of betrayal, intimidation, and witch hunt from friends, top government officials, media, and cartels who know I will smoke them out ” she adds.
She points out that her life and that of her family was put in danger while investigating the Westlands Underworld after recovering two passports belonging to the Asians from a high ranking officer in the Kenya Police Service.
She reveals that the said officer is her ex-boyfriend whom she met in Kirinyaga County when she was serving as Secretary of Security while the man was an OCPD.
Ms. Jane has also accused a top officer working with the Directorate of Criminal Investigation(DCI) headquarters.
The officer according to her is a close friend she has worked with for many years in her career as an investigator.
She says the officer sponsored the media to sell the narrative that she is a criminal but has never presented any evidence against her in court.
Jane narrated how she met him while she was working with DCI as a chief investigator and the then Director of Criminal Investigation Joseph Kamau had posted her to Kabete Police Station as an undercover while the officer was an aide to the boss.
The two have worked together since and have handled many cases of national interest including NYS with the last assignment being in June and July 2019.
However, despite Jane Mugo having invested her efforts, money, and time to recover stolen public money, the DCI officer took the reports to President Uhuru Kenyatta without telling him her selfless and patriotic input as a whistleblower.
” He also failed to act against his junior officers Bernard CCIO Nairobi area and Nicholas Kamwende Director of forensic in his office yet the two played a key role in the Westlands Underworld ” she added.
Jane Mugo states
her sources who helped her during the investigation are on her neck while the government of Kenya owes her Ksh 3 Million for being a whistleblower.
On his part, The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) had promised that suspects who were mentioned in the Westlands Underworld expose were going to be arrested.
DPP is yet to order the arrest of prime suspects including the top Kenya Police Officer and a legislator.
