President Uhuru Kenyatta made a low-key entrance into Kisumu where he met ODM party leader Raila Odinga.

Journalists and members of the public were locked out of the refurbished Kisumu port where the two leaders met, flanked by a host of government officials to inspect the ongoing works at the facility.

The head of state flew to Kisumu, accompanied a delegation of senior state officials in two military helicopters.

The president seemed to have dodged journalist, choosing to land at the port instead of the Kisumu International Airport where journalists had camped before proceeding to the port by road.

Security was tight at the facility with both members of the public and the press locked out.

The refurbished port was set to be launched in January but delays in completion saw the exercise moved to a later date.

The region has seen key infrastructure upgrade that many link to the new-found partnership between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga, transforming it into an economic hub.

Among the projects that have been launched in the region is the revival of the 217-kilometre Nakuru-Kisumu at a cost of Sh3.8 billion.

Roads have also been upgraded in the City, transforming it into a thriving metropolis.

“Using two Prados with registration numbers GKB 070B and KCY 280Q, the three suspects; Godwins Otieno Agutu, Alex Mutua Mutuku and Ken Gichovi Kimathi, alongside three others who are still at large, stormed the victim’s offices within Nairobi on September 26, 2020, after which they took his laptop and left,” a statement from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations reads in part.

The DCI pointed out that three days after storming the businessman’s offices, they abducted the victim.

“They forced the victim to contact his family members to get the amount. However, they only managed to raise Ksh 500,000. The suspects escorted him to his house at Westlands in Nairobi and took the cash,” the police statement reads in part.

Upon investigations, officers discovered that the said government number plates belonged to a Land Rover Discovery attached to the Judiciary yet they used them on the Toyota Prado.

DCI detectives arrested the three suspects at Lutheran House.

They arraigned them in court where they asked to keep them in custody until they complete investigations.
