New details have emerged on why Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti reopened the 2007-2008 post-election violence cases.
Kinoti’s move to reopen the 2017 post election violence cases reportedly came after claims by victims that they were being threatened.
However, the outspoken Kikuyu Member of Parliament Kimani allied to the Deputy President Kimani Ichung’wa has spilled the beans on why the DCI boss revived the PEV case stating that he is pitting him (Kinoti).
Kimani Ichung’wa has alleged that Kinoti has been subjected to political shenanigans aiming at fulfilling some few individuals he termed as conmen and brokers’ agendas.
The Kikuyu lawmaker further stated that Kinoti’s fight against corruption is now attempting to create ethnic animosity in Rift Valley through 2007 post election violence and the process is aiming at rescuing the contentious Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
“One would HONESTLY sympathize with @DCI_Kenya Kinoti. The political circus and shenanigans he’s taken through by these political brokers and conmen, from Fight against Corruption to now an attempt to drive ethnic animosity in the Rift to rescue BBI? Come on! A little intelligence!” Ichung’wa said stated.
DCI boss has now vowed to bring the perpetrators to book stating that “We will collaborate with the Administration police and Police Service. We are going to the field and very soon you will see action.”
Kinoti further affirmed that after collecting concrete evidence from the victims of the violence, the files will be taken to an international court and the case will be reviewed.
