One man not happy with the DCI’s handling of corruption cases is Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.
The vocal senator from the Rift Valley wants the DCI to be sacked over claims that he is biased in his investigations.
Murkomen suggests that an independent body be established and tasked with fighting corruption in the country.
The body will of cause be vetted by the parliament that has previously been accused of masterminding and covering corruption cases.
“Even before he has started the investigations he has sent a message to the media, even before he has summoned a person he has already sent the questions to the media,” Murkomen has claimed.
Mr Murkomen gave the example of National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich’s recent grilling by the DCI.
“Tuliambiwa Rotich ataenda kuulizwa maswali 300, mimi nilifikiria ni propaganda tukikuja kuona maswali ni 300 (We were told that Rotich will be asked 300 questions, I thought it was just propaganda but I later saw that indeed the questions were 300),” said the senator.
In his directive to the DCI, Murkomen said that the law must be followed and that suspects must be implicated by evidence and not by malice.
Murkomen’s statement comes after the DCI Mr. Kinoti asked that the senator be investigated on his connection to corruption
Senator Murkomen is one of the many young leaders that this county should not have.
Rather than helping to create a safe space for the youth, Murkomen is helping to empower the corrupt minority that are making Kenya bleed.
Senator Murkomen, by becoming defensive over calls to be investigated over his connection to corruption, is only showing elements of guilt. Whether his people vote for him in 2022 is a decision they have to make.
