Elgeyo Marakwet County Senator Kipchumba Murkomen on Friday 22 January 2021 called out former Vice President and Wiper Democratic Movement party leader Kalonzo Musyoka after he presented himself before the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
Kalonzo presented himself before the DCI to record a statement following accusations of land grabbing which were leveled against him by Deputy President William Ruto.
Reacting to the move by Kalonzo Musyoka, Murkomen wondered why if the Wiper party leader is a corruption suspect, he went to see the DCI instead of the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission which is the department that has the specialized mandate on matters of corruption.
“So Kalonzo Musyoka is a real suspect? If he is a corruption suspect why did he choose to go to DCI and not EACC which has the specialized mandate on matters of corruption?” he posed.
He went on to question if a suspect can choose his investigator stating that the real reason Kalonzo presented himself before DCI boss George Kinoti was simply to “clean his house” something that should not be ignored.
While speaking to the media after being grilled by the DCI detectives, Kalonzo’s team said that he would be presenting the legal and official documents showing how he acquired the said property.
Kalonzo’s team also invited the second in command to follow the Wiper party leader’s footsteps present himself before the same authorities for scrutiny as well.
