DCI Kinoti must be fired – Senator Kipchumba Murkomen
Elgeyo Marakwet senator, Kipchumba Murkomen, has called for the sacking of Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti.
The senator, addressing his electorate on Saturday, stated that the DCI boss has been biased in his fight against corruption.
Kipchumba Murkomen further alleged that the DCI has an uncalled for habit of leaking information of his suspects to the media before summoning the suspects.
“We were told that Rotich was going to be asked 300 questions before he was summoned. I thought it was propaganda until I realized that he was actually asked 300 questions. We cannot fight corruption like that. We have to fight corruption objectively. I want to tell the DCI that we are not asking for a favor, neither are we asking him to be lenient. We are telling him to do things according to the law.” Senator Murkomen stated.
This is in the believe of Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, with a number of others, believe that the DCI is being used to bring down some politicians.
Last week, Finance CS Henry Rotich was summoned for 3 days in connection with billions of money believed to have been lost in construction of 2 days in Elgeyo Marakwet county.
