Saturday March 2, 2019-Nandi Senator, Samson Cherargei has warned Director of Criminal Investigations(DCI), George Kinoti and Director of Public Prosecutions(DPP), Noordin Haji, against politicizing the ongoing war against corruption.
He claimed that the behaviour of the investigating officers was fishy as they appear to target individuals from certain communities.
“In the meeting, I was very clear to DPP Noordin Haji and DCI George Kinoti not to use the fight against graft to target individuals or communities," Cherargei said

Speaking at his county on Saturday, Cherargei, who is a close confidante of Deputy President William Ruto, revealed that Kinoti and Haji are targeting members of the Kalenjin community in the ongoing war against graft.
The senator also revealed that he has in the past chaired a multi-agency meeting where they deliberated on how to effectively fight graft in the country.
He, however, assured residents that leaders from the Rift Valley region would ensure that the community doesn't suffer any form of victimisation.
"We are not going to sit back and watch the careers of our sons and daughters being ended unfairly. Do not use the fight against graft to target 2022 politics," he warned.
