Deputy President William Ruto today made the first public appearence after skipping two consequetive meetings convened by President Uhuru Kenyatta, meeting a crowd that has gathered for the burial of Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri.
Politics took center stage during the burial as the Tanga Tanga brigade loyal to DP Ruto came out guns-blazing in defense of their boss who has been an isolated and cornered man with BBI gaining momentum, DCI George Kinoti opening Post Election Violence cases and the surrender of lawyer Paul Gicheru to the ICC.
The bashing of DCI boss George Kinoti made it to the agenda of the burial with the DP Ruto bandwagon calling for the his sacking.
Led by Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, speakers at the event painted Kinoti as an incompetent and clueless DCI being used by unnamed individuals to frustrate DP Ruto.
Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua who is also in attendance mocked the DCI chief as “incompetent and clueless”.
The directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) boss George Kinoti issued a new statement over post-election violence cases amid protests from DP Ruto’s Tanga Tanga brigade that the second in command is the target in the latest move.
Kinoti clarified that the authorities are keen on ensuring that justice is served to all Kenyans whose cases remain unresolved, maintained that the DCI will not revisit any clossed cases.
Panic swept through Deputy President William Ruto’s camp after the state officially opened Post Election Violence Cases just a few days after lawyer Paul Gicheru who is accused of interfering with witnesses surrendered to the International Criminal Court.
