The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has received 18 motorcycles from Federal Republic of Germany, a boost in the fight against crime.
The motorbikes including top of the range BMW 1250CC bikes, were handed over by the German Ambassador to Kenya Annette Guenther, in ceremony held at DCI headquarters.
The German envoy lauded the cooperation between the German and Kenya’s investigative agencies, adding that the over Sh14.5 million worth of motorcycles would complement other DCI means of transport, while enabling quick access to crime scenes.
Criminals have in the recent past resorted to using motorcycle to commit crimes.
While receiving the motorbikes, the DCI boss George Kinoti acknowledged the immense support his team received from the German Embassy.
He added that the donation would go far in boosting his team’s effectiveness in responding to instances of crime. He took that opportunity to extend the DCI’s appreciation to Germany’s GIZ and BKA programmes whose aid to the DCI has been momentous.
Also present during the ceremony were BKA Police liaison officers Stefan Koch, Harald Gessner and Rene Becker.
