Governor Kawira Mwangaza staunchly declared her intent to pursue legal action against those who had implicated her in the murder of Daniel Muthiani Bernard, also known as Sniper in a press address at the Meru Governor’s residence on Friday, January 19, 2023.

Governor Mwangaza had chosen to remain silent as a group of individuals consistently tarnished her reputation, awaiting the conclusion of the investigation by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). Speaking at her residence, she revealed that the DCI had completed its probe, charging two individuals without any interference from her side.

“We decided to keep quiet as a family and let the investigators do their work. The DCI has now concluded the investigation, and has charged two people and we did not interfere. Now it is our time to play the ball to respond and say what we know,” she stated.
