Mohamed Kakay: £20,000 reward in police re-appeal about murder of stabbed Camberwell man

A £20,000 reward is being offered in a police re-appeal for information about the murder of Mohamed Kakay, who was stabbed to death in Camberwell two years ago.

Detectives returned to Camberwell Church Street this morning where Mohamed was killed to hand out appeal leaflets and talk to the community in a fresh bid to find his killers.

The 33-year-old was stabbed inside the gardens at the back of St Giles’ Church, before staggering to the front of the church and collapsing in Camberwell Church Street around 9am on November 19 two years ago.

Members of the public stopped to administer first aid until the emergency services arrived and Mohamed was rushed to hospital.

Mohamed, who was from Bromley, died of his injuries later that afternoon. Police believe that he was attacked by two suspects.

Six people have been previously arrested as part of the investigation but all were released without further action.


Detective Inspector Tom Dahri, leading the investigation, said: “Two years have passed but we remain as committed as ever to finding out who committed this murder.

“We believe that Mohamed had spent the night at a flat in Wilson Road. In the morning he walked down Wilson Road with two suspects before he entered the gardens at the rear of St Giles Church where he was stabbed seconds later.

“The two suspects then made off through the gardens, down a side alleyway leading to the front of St Giles Church and then cut through the front of the church as the congregation were exiting before they turned back up Wilson Road.”

DI Dahri said that police believed the local community could help solve the case and hoped that the reward would encourage people to come forward.

He added: “We hope that by offering a substantial reward for information, anyone who knows something about what happened to Mohamed and those involved in his murder who previously thought twice about coming forward will do the right thing now and call police.”

Anyone with any information is urged to call the incident room on 020 8721 4961.
