Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have ordered Bahati Member of Parliament Kimani Ngujiri to surrender his firearm.
The order came after the lawmaker was summoned by DCI to record a statement at the DCI offices over remarks he made on the wrangles rocking the President Uhuru Kenyatta led party last week.
Ngungiri stated that he was not afraid of being arrested or going to jail if his only crime is backing Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid while adding that he will not tone down in the push for the DP to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“We are ready to pay the price in standing with the DP. They can arrest us but they won’t stop his bid. The BBI meeting in Kisii was Raila Odinga’s campaign using state resources the same way he turned the 2005 referendum into a political party,” said Ngunjiri.
“We stood with the President in 2013 and 2017. Since his truce with Raila Odinga, his synergy with the deputy and his allies faded.
“It is shocking that the president is watching in silence as his deputy is being embarrassed. The presidential appointees cannibalising Ruto should know that tables turn. They are not elected leaders and won’t last long in those offices.”
