Police Investigate 3 Loopholes in Aisha Jumwa's Home Raid
Hours after three armed men raided Public Service Cabinet Secretary, Aisha Jumwa’s Loresho-based home, detectives privy to the matter raised three key issues regarding the incident.
According to reports, Nairobi police commander Adamson Bungei revealed that detectives drawn from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) had recorded statements from the staff and those inside Jumwa’s premises at the time.
Among the questions, the detectives sought to establish include how the three armed men infiltrated the compound despite the presence of active CCTV cameras within and outside the premises.

Further, detectives wondered how the gang bypassed the 24-hour electric fence to gain access to the compound.
Another concern was how the trio managed to bypass the security guards unnoticed.
Earlier reports indicated that the armed gang accessed the main house through the back door that was not locked.
Police boss Bungei affirmed that cops sought to investigate the loopholes to unearth the trio and bring them to book.
Reports revealed that the robbers broke into the home, and harassed the househelp and Jumwa’s daughters before stealing Ksh1.1 million.
Other items stolen included gold jewellery, laptops, three mobile phones and other accessories.
According to the police report filed at the Spring Valley Police Station under the OB Number 03/02/2023, the incident reportedly occurred at around 1:45 pm on Wednesday, February 15, while the Public Affairs CS was away on official duty.
“The gang of three men, armed with crude weapons, entered the compound by cutting the electric perimeter wall and gained access to the main house through the backdoor, which was not locked,” part of the police report stated.
