Woman in police custody for sending letters laced with dangerous chemicals to high commission

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives apprehended a woman in Utawala, Nairobi county. The woman is in police custody for sending letters laced with dangerous chemicals to a high commission.

The sleuths identified the suspect as Tracy Wairimu Ndegwa, 34. Officers from DCI nabbed her on Monday, August 3. The woman is in police custody for sending threatening letters to a diplomatic office in Nairobi last week.

DCI indicated in their social media pages that, one of the letters was sprayed with hay fever pesticides and the other with an industrial chemical. The police did not, however, publish the high commission the culprit sent the letters to.

This is not the first time that the woman has been involved in a terrorism hoax. She was out on bail after she was apprehended and indicted in court for a previous terrorism hoax.

“Tracy Ndegwa had previously on June 23, 2020, been accused and charged with a terrorism hoax. She targeted the Kenya Prisons Commissioner-General. She was released on cash bail, recently” said DCI.

In one of the letters seen by Lion Net News, she threatened the embassy boss to facilitate residence and travel documentation to an unnamed individual failure to which there would be dire consequences.

“We will break your nones and assault you. we will put explosives where you think you are safest and rape you in turns” shared the DCI.

The woman is currently in police custody and will be arraigned at the Kibera Law Courts once investigations are complete.
