Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior has narrated threats that preceded his late father’s death. The vocal senator spoke during the Justice, Legal affairs and human rights and the National security, defense, and foreign relations committees meeting with Police IG Hillary Mutyambai and DCI George Kinoti on the security concerns of senators.
The senator while speaking at the committee session told off the DCI for taking lightly threats to Senator Malala’s life saying the DCI was not ready to give facts.
“To dismiss an allegation like this, like fiction, is wrong. Let me tell you why it hurts me to the core for you to do that. Before my father died, somebody sent him a threatening message that they were going to poison him. You went round and found a young girl who was a house girl whose phone was used. It was not her who send the message. 2 months later he withdrew the case and 2 months later he was poisoned.” Senator Mutula said.
“To date you have no information about the murder of Mutula Kilonzo. We cannot sit here and joke around this issue. Remember what Senator Wetangula has said about J M Kariuki. This country has hit squads people who murder and disappear to somewhere.” He added.
DCI Kinoti and Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai were hard-pressed to explain the arrest of 3 senators during the joint committee session. Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala shed tears while narrating how his life was in danger.
“We have had a new Constitution for the past 10 years. This Constitution provides that all offenses are bailable. Why do you insist on arresting Members of Parliament and driving them to your stations, yet the Constitution provides that they can be bonded to appear before any station at any time you require them to attend.” Mombasa senator Mwinyihaji Faki said.
“Whatever Sen. Cleophas Malala has said, whether hallucinations, fiction or facts deserve the greatest level of attention from yourselves. The swiftest investigations and above all to secure him by giving him additional security of his choice,” Moses Wetangula Said.
