All those KILLINGS in Bungoma and Busia are POLITICAL .... Now KIMAIYO REVEALS

Monday, the 6th of May 2013 - The Inspector-General of police David Kimaiyo has said that initial investigations on the bloody attacks in Bungoma and Busia counties have pointed to the possibility that they were motivated by politics.

According to Kimaiyo, the 19 people currently in police custody in connection to the attacks have pointed fingers to politicians;

“We want them to tell us who is commanding them. Preliminary reports indicate attacks could be orchestrated by politicians,” said the police I.G.

Last week Kimaiyo dispatched a group of high-ranking officers to the two counties to lead investigations into the killings. Among those who went are his two deputies Samuel Arachi and Grace Kaindi as well as CID director Ndegwa Muhoro.

Western Kenya has generally stayed violence free since the 1980s and 1990s when gangs like Angola Musumbiji, Sabaot Land Defence Force and February Eighteen Revolution Army terrorized villagers.

The recent attacks that have led to the deaths of eight people have been reminiscent of those past attacks. Villagers have reported that the attacks were carried out by groups of 15 or 30 men armed with crude weapons.

Police have not been able to pin a motive on the attacks since the attackers only seem interested in spilling blood. .

Bungoma Governor Ken Lusaka and Senator Moses Wetang’ula have both called on the police to get to the bottom of the killings.

During the Labour Day celebrations last week, County Commissioner Jamleck Baruga is reported to have blamed the attacks on political figures saying people were asked who they voted for before they were slashed.
