In the petition filed on Wednesday, March 23, the lawyer, who is representing Michael Makarena, argued that Linturi has had run-ins with the law but has never been convicted of any charge.
Speaking to the media outside Milimani Law Courts, Omari questioned the legitimacy of a bachelor’s degree the lawmaker holds.
The two want the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) compelled to prosecute the matter.
The lawyer argued that the lawmaker might have forged a degree certificate from an Indian University which he used to join a Masters program at the University of Nairobi.
“You cannot be seeking to get a Masters Degree if you have a D Grade in Form 4. You can’t. Its minimum entry requirement is a C+
“Two, you must have a degree as a basis for that,” he explained.
The activist is also seeking to have the DCI probe the circumstances in which a household, who was working for the lawmaker, died.
The duo argued that no postmortem was conducted on the house help’s body.
In yet another demand, Makarena is seeking to have investigations reopened into the sudden death of Linturi’s business associate named Stanley Maore.
The demands come just weeks after Linturi sued the DPP as well as the DCI seeking to get Ksh10 million compensation from the state.
The Senator, in court documents, indicated that the money would account for damages for unwarranted imprisonment and violation of his freedom and rights during detention.
The lawmaker had been arrested by detectives who sought to investigate him for remarks bordering on incitement.
He alleged that his rights were infringed by state agencies after he was accused of making remarks bordering on hate speech and incitement at an Eldoret rally organised by Deputy President William Ruto.
â€œThe miscellaneous file is marked as withdrawn as the prosecution has failed to prefer any charges against the suspect within the time allocated by the court,â€ ruled a magistrate who then ordered his file on the matter be closed.
