Former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama and DP William Ruto have come out guns blazing at the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti over his move to reopening 2007-2008 Post-election violence cases.
In a tweet by the former senator, he said that the revival of the cases was unnecessary as most of the Kenyans had already embraced peace and togetherness.
“Bwana Kinoti, it’s very unfortunate for independent institutions @DCI_Kenya to be used for political expediency. My interaction with the people of RV has showcased a true embodiment of a region that has embraced peace, brotherhood, and tranquility. Keep of 2022 politics, ” Muthama said.
Deputy President William Ruto in a Tweet termed Kinoti’s move as intended to resuscitate tribal animosity.
On Monday, (November 23rd), DCI boss George Kinoti said the investigation was reopened following complaints by several communities that they are being profiled and intimidated amid rising political temperatures in the country.
Those who have lodged complaints and expressed fears for their lives include past victims of the 2007-20008 Post Election Violence, the worst electoral chaos in the country that displaced more than half a million people from their homes and left more than 2000 dead.
