Zachariah Nyaora Obadia suspected to be the mastermind of the sexual harassment incident along Wangari Maathai Road in Parklands, Nairobi has been arrested.
He was nabbed by sleuths drawn from the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau at the Kenya-Tanzania border on Monday, March 14. Detectives believe he was attempting to cross into Tanzania.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) identified Nyaora as the mastermind of the sexual harassment incident.
He was identified following an operation by undercover agents drawn from the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau and DCI Nairobi Regional Headquarters.
Following the successful identification of the suspect, detectives went after Nyaora who lives in Mukuru Kaiyaba informal settlement but he escaped through a sewer duct in the area.
“The suspect has also been positively identified by his wife and other relatives in his rural home, sexually assaulting the victim in the widely shared videotape. It is only a matter of time before we arrest him,” the DCI said in a statement.
