Us­ing the in­for­ma­tion, the de­tec­tives will also de­ter­mine the speed at which the car was mov­ing when it crashed.

A team from the re­gional traf­fic head­quar­ters has since Tues­day been comb­ing the scene of the ac­ci­dent and wreck­age of car for clues.

The Busi­ness Daily has also es­tab­lished that the op­er­a­tion of the late gover­nor’s aide and driver is un­der scru­tiny after it emerged he had not picked a spe­cific driver for his of­fi­cial car. It is un­der­stood that Mr Gakuru was still in the process of be­ing orientated on daily tasks and op­er­a­tions around his VIP pro­tec­tion team.

Po­lice boss Gideon Amala has, how­ever, cau­tioned against con­spir­acy the­o­ries be­ing cir­cu­lated on so­cial me­dia.
