Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) have confessed how hard it has become to track down fugitive Caroline Kangogo.

Caroline is on the run for the second week now, following the murders of Constable John Ongweno and civilian Peter Ndwiga last week.

She is alleged to have committed the heinous murders in a ‘revenge mission’ to men believed to have been intimate with her.

DCI says that it is now a daunting task to track her down because she no longer uses her phone.

Detectives have been forced to launch a physical search for the fugitive.

“It has been challenging tracking down the officer because she no longer uses her phone. However, our team has stepped up the hunt,” Nakuru County Criminal Investigations Officer Anthony Sunguti said.

DCI said she had acquired a new mobile phone and was last tracked at Litein in Kericho County before ditching it.

She would also borrow phones from random people and make calls to different people, including police officers and doctors who have since recorded statements with the police.

Last week, she was reportedly spotted in Nairobi, Eldoret and Nakuru.

In a report on Tuesday last week, police said that they believed she was in a hideout at the Mathare Slums in Nairobi.

She was seen boarding a boda boda at Kahawa Wendani and branched off at Drive Inn stage into Mathare slums.

On Thursday, there were reports that she was spotted partying at a Nakuru club.

She then hailed a Wasili Cab taxi to Nairobi, but the driver turned down her offer. She boarded a 4NT Sacco matatu to Nairobi.

Not much of her whereabouts are known since then.

Her parents last week urged her to surrender to the police and let the law take its course.

But the mother of two seems unperturbed as police cast their drag nets wider.
