The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has apologized for putting out an inappropriate tweet on the murder of a Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) officer in Kahawa Wendani, Kiambu County on Sunday.
While announcing the unfortunate incident where the officer was killed by his lover, DCI used language that appeared to glorify the murder.
“…The 37-year-old officer died in his house at Kahawa Wendani in Kiambu's Ruiru sub-county when his wife cast her teeth through his thumb, chest, and shoulder,” DCI’s statement read in part.
This did not augur well with a section of netizens who hit out at the investigations body, claiming that such language painted a picture of an agency that is impartial.
The netizens demanded that the DCI takes action against the admin who put out the post.
Following immense pressure from netizens, DCI deleted the tweet and issued an apology, vowing to ensure that the same never happens again.
“We have noted with regret that one of our tweets earlier today, did not go down well in as far as our human touch, affection, and feelings are concerned.
“We beg pardon as it was not intended and sincerely commit, that it shall not be repeated again. The Admin of the account has since taken the necessary action,” DCI tweeted.
