Just minutes after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti released a presser officially marking the re-opening of the cases of post-election violence, leaders of the Tanga Tanga faction took to social media castigating the actions and utterances of the DCI boss.
Led by Kikuyu Member of Parliament Kimani Ichungwah who belittled Kinoti’s words as mere political shenanigans and circus, the leaders set the stage for an epic battle in the coming days.
“One would HONESTLY sympathize with @DCI Kenya Kinoti. The political circus & shenanigans he’s taken through by these political brokers &conmen, from Fight against Corruption to now an attempt to drive ethnic animosity in the Rift to rescue BBI? Come on! A little intelligence!” Wrote Kimani Ichungwah.
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen was not left out, as he asked those in the Rift Valley to resist the desperate move by the system to bring the DP down, and further, weaken his political strength in the Mt Kenya region.
“The statement by DCI is a desperate move by the System after failing in all their efforts to bring down the DP. They want to incite violence against communities in R.Valley&especially Eldoret to weaken DP’s political strength in Mt.Kenya. They may even burn houses or Kill people.” Reacted Kipchumba Murkomen.
“I urge all communities in R.Valley and across the country to resist any form of violence especially the state-sponsored violence. DCI is engaged in the comedy of the absurd but not without the support of desperados in the highest offices. When we said NEVER AGAIN we meant it. RESIST.” Continued Murkomen.
On the contrary Kielewekeke MPs led by Nyeri Town Member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri thanked and praise Kinoti for opening
“This is the matter I raised in a letter to DCI Kinoti on 15th September 2020. I am therefore genuinely grateful that DCI Kinoti took my complaint letter seriously, and has opened up investigations to see whether what is being said today is similar to what was being said in 2007; and whether it could lead to similar violence towards 2022 or any other time.” Read Ngunjiri Wambugu’s comment in part.
