However, it was not clear what role Subow Mohamed could have played in the arms deal scandal, but the arrest comes after George Kinoti (DCI boss) promised to arrest all the culprits and/or suspects linked to the fake arms deal scandal.

Investigations into the fake arms deal scandal became complicated following the brutal murder of Sgt Kipyegon Kenei, a police officers previously attached to DP Ruto’s office who was on duty when former Sports CS Rashid Echesa visited DP Ruto’s office alongside two white foreigners over the fake deal.

Sgt Kipyego Kenei was murdered on the day he was supposed to record a statement with the DCI over the fake arms deal scandal.

The former Sports CS Rashid Echesa has already been charged with forgery in a case involving an alleged fake arms deal, but he denied the charges terming them as politically influenced.
