Police are investigating circumstances surrounding a burglary incident at the Nairobi home of Chief Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi.

Two burglars raided the home and made away with a 40-inch tv set and gas cylinder.

It remains unclear how the burglars accessed the well-guarded home at Karen, Nairobi, on January 29.

Police said a review of CCTV footage showed that two men managed to jump the perimeter fence at 4:30 pm.

One of them covered one of the CCTV cameras with a plastic object to hide their identity.

They then accessed some rooms at the compound and stole the property before escaping.

Police say the affected rooms had not been attended to for long.

“These are unattended rooms but we suspect an inside job for the burglary. No injury was reported,” a police officer who attended the scene said.

Mudavadi’s son Moses Mudavadi told police that a house help told him that one of the tv sets and the gas cylinders were missing.

This prompted a police check that established the incident happened on Sunday afternoon.

The CS and his wife were not at home at the time of the incident. The son too was in different rooms and did not realize it had happened.

It took the house help to visit the rooms to realize it had happened.

Police said they had established the electric fence at the compound was not working at the time of the incident.

“The electric fence was not serviceable at the time of the incident. This points to someone who knew all the happenings there,” police said.

There was no immediate comment from Mudavadi as his spokesman did not respond to our queries.
