Deputy Inspector General of Police Edward Kinuthia and Makadara MP George Aladwa are among those to be investigated after damning claims in the Citizen TV expose Westlands Underworld.
His boss Hillary Mutyambai on Tuesday ordered that investigations into the matter should begin immediately.
“Towards this end, any member of the public, including Citizen TV, with documentary evidence on the said matter are invited to submit information to the Director Internal Affairs Unit; National Police Service…,” Mutyambai said in a statement.
The investigators are to submit their report within 14 days.
Mutyambai revealed that the decision was reached following a meeting with Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and DPP Noordin Haji on Tuesday morning.
Citizen TV aired the expose on Sunday showing how senior government officials use their positions to allegedly harass and intimidate a wealth Asian family.
Using secret cameras, the investigative piece implicated Makadara MP George Aladwa, Nairobi Area Bernard Nyakakwa, Head of Permits at the Immigration Department Linus Muriithi, the Nairobi County Commander Investigations office, among others.
70-year-old Dillip Bakrania who is worth billions of shillings is said to have been the target of an intricate web aimed at seizing his properties, deporting him or even worse.
Bakrania owns several companies located in Dar-es-Salaam Road in Nairobi’s Industrial Area.
Months into the investigations showed his 192 Bentley vehicle worth millions had gone missing, bank accounts frozen by individuals and his gun taken away.
In the Westlands Underworld, Citizen TV’s investigative reporter Putiry Omwambia spent months trailing the alleged players in the plot.
A controversial private investigator, Jane Mugo ,was also drawn into the expose.
