The infighting at the institution is part of the theories police are pursuing as possible cause of the murder of Maigo.

Maigo had been stabbed 25 times in the chest and neck by the 17 year old suspect. His body was found on the floor of his two bedroomed house in a pool of blood.

Police camped in Kibera slums hunting for the suspect who was captured on security cameras escaping the scene of crime in vain.
