"Upon conclusion, the Authority will make recommendations and forward the investigation file to the ODPP for his attention," Oketch said in a statement on Wednesday.

During the ordeal, the officers killed a woman, Janet Waiyaki, and injured Bernard Chege who was later rushed to Avenue hospital for treatment.
The officers claimed that the two "looked suspicious".
The officers allegedly opened fire when Chege sped off after he was asked to open the car.
But Chege who spoke to the Nation from his hospital bed said they were 'relaxing' at the spot he had frequented b efore the incident.
The police report claimed that both occupants were half-naked at the time of the incident.
But the family of Waiyaki are asking why she was taken to the City Mortuary half-naked (with only her top) and Chege was fully dressed when he was taken to the hospital.
