A senior Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officer was killed after the motorcyle he was riding was hit by a speeding motorist on the Northern by-pass at Marurui.
Boniface Muganda was the lead creative designer attached to the Corporate Communications & Public Affairs Unit.
He was heading home on his motorbike when a speeding motorist hit his bike and took off, leaving the officer sprawled on the tarmac metres away from his bike.
According to first responders, who rushed the detective to Kenyatta University hospital following the 9:40pm incident, Muganda who was groaning in pain breathed his last at the hospital’s gate, just before doctors could attend to him.
DCI described Muganda as a hardworking, self driven and dedicated officer who performed his duties outstandingly and got along well with colleagues from across all cadres.
:He was a gifted Communications Officer whose skills in photography, videography and graphics design propelled him to head the creative design desk at the DCI’s Comms unit,” said the statement.
The detective who has previously served at the forensic photographic and acoustics unit was the creative artist behind the latest edition of the DCI Magazine among other assignments including the coverage of last Thursday’s Mashujaa day celebrations at Uhuru gardens.
Investigations into the accident have already began and DCI say it is only a matter of time before detectives catch up with the driver who is on the run.
