ROBA'S BROTHER NABBED OVER STOLEN BVR KITS The Kenya police this morning arrested Suleiman Roba (brother to His Excellency, Ali Ibrahim Roba) after he was found in possession of stolen BVR kits in Banissa. The BVR kits were allegedly stolen from Lafey Constituency two days earlier by "suspected" Al-Shabab terrorists. Other suspicious documents found with the suspect include over 200 National Identity Cards (bought from innocent pastoralists in exchange of food aid) as well as over 1,000,000 shillings.  It was also alleged that he had already issued fake voters cards to unsuspecting pastoralists while posing as IEBC clerk.

A police officer who spoke to me on condition of anonymity informed me that there are also pursuing other leads. "It is well orchestrated and well planned scheme," he said. Among key suspects in the network include aspirants MCAs and MPs under the so-called Firfirsa Team.  "It is not business as usual," said the officer. "The information was brought to our attention by NSIS. No one is above the law" he added.
