THE car stolen from a police driver attached to State House is not part of the presidential motorcade, spokesman Manoah Esipisu said yesterday.
He said the vehicle is a GK car fitted with civilian number plates and was used for police work.
Esipisu said the car was not armoured.
"This was an ordinary car. It is not a limousine. It is not part of the presidential fleet. It is not a presidential escort car," he said in a statement to media houses yesterday.
Esipisu said Chief Inspector David Machui, was attacked by four armed men in Ruai on Wednesday night.
The criminals stole Sh60,000 and a mobile phone from Machui.
"The men drove him around the city for a few hours and set him free at around 2.30 am in Mihango next to the Administration Police Training College, Embakasi," Esipisu said.
He said the BMW 735 was bought in 2000 and belongs to the Kenya Police Service.
The car is yet to be recovered.
Flying squad officers have been assigned to trace the car.
