DCI probing ‘Untouchable’ tout

Directorate of Criminal Investigations Boss George Kinoti has ordered an immediate probe into the untouchable matatu tout who beat up a client almost to to death.

Kinoti ordered the investigations just a day after activist Boniface Mwangi blew the whistle on how the tout, Felix Mwingirwa had engineered the arrest of two witnesses enlisted in his case.

Mwingirwa shot to the limelight after a social media user exposed how he broke the skull of a passenger at the Tea Room Bus stop for refusing to to board his matatu.

On Tuesday, DCI boss George Kinoti ordered an immediate probe on Felix Mwingirwa who reportedly brags about having links to senior police officers.


On Wednesday, city police chief Joseph ole Tito said the DCI will establish the activities the conductor has engaged in and whether he is working with officers of Central Police Station in particular.

Tito said the tout attacked the passenger, on January 30, after differing with his colleagues on management grounds.

Mwingirwa confessed to having police protection, an aspect said to have likely contributed to his arrogance and other questionable behaviour.

The tout has filed a case against his colleagues, who he accuses of destroying his car.
