One of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s official vehicles was on Wednesday night stolen from his police driver in Ruai, Nairobi.
The bulletproof car, a BMW model was allegedly carjacked at about 8pm following an ambush by three gunmen according to the driver, David Machui.
Mr Machui was heading to his home at the Ruai police residential houses after his day’s duties, when he was attacked.
He said he was stripped naked and abandoned in a thicket by the thugs who then made away with the high-end limousine. The car was bearing a private number plate at the time.
State house spokesperson Manoah Esipisu confirmed the incident but denied the vehicle is part of the fleet the president uses.
Commenting on the issue, Nairobi police commander Benson Kibue said: “The vehicle has no connection to State House or any government department or the President. All we know it is an old BMW.”
By Thursday evening, the hunt for the vehicle and the suspects was ongoing.
