Senate Majority Leader¬†Kipchumba Murokomen¬†has called for the sacking of the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti.
While addressing a gathering on Saturday,¬†the Elegeyo Marakwet Senator accused the DCI boss¬†of being biased in the fight against corruption.
Murkomen claimed that Kinoti had made a habit of leaking information to the media before summoning his suspects.
“We were told that Rotich was going to be asked 300 questions. I thought it was propaganda until I realized that he was asked 300 questions when he was summoned. DCI had already given the question to the media.
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 favour, neither are we asking him to be lenient. We are telling him to do things according to the law,” Murkomen stated.
He further asked Kinoti not to be involved in¬†ploys to bring down certain politicians.
¬†“You cannot run a country like that. you can not! We are raising these issues because we want to have an independent institution that is able to fight corruption,” he added.
His comments come in the wake of investigations by DCI into¬†controversial payments for the construction of the stalled Arror and Kimwarer Dams saga in Elgeyo Marakwet County.
It is alleged that taxpayers lost Ksh 21 billion that was meant to build the dams.
CSs Eugene Wamalwa (Devolution), Mwangi Kiunjuri (Agriculture) and Henry Rotich (Treasury) have already been summoned by the DCI¬†to shed more light into the scandal.
