Friday April 12, 2019 - A section of Meru Community leaders have warned Deputy President William Ruto against attacking Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), George Kinoti.
Kinoti is a highly respected personality in Meru and indeed Mount Kenya region and any attack on him is interpreted as an affront on the appointing authority - President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking on Friday, Trade Cabinet Secretary, Peter Munya, and Buuri MP, Mugambi Rindikiri, warned Ruto and other politicians against frustrating Uhuru’s war against graft
“Nobody is being targeted but if you are named in any corruption deal, it does not matter where you come from.”
“You must be investigated and prosecuted,” Munya said.
Speaking separately, Mike Makarina, chairman of People Living with Disability in Mt Kenya East told off Ruto for claiming that Kinoti was targeting him in the war on graft.
He said Mt Kenya region trusts Kinoti and anybody who will attack him is an enemy of the President and the entire Mt Kenya region.
Two weeks ago, Ruto claimed that the DCI had been sucked into a political scheme and strategy to undermine the implementation of major development projects and in the end scuttle Uhuru’s legacy by making it impossible to deliver pre-election pledges.
However, Kinoti dismissed Ruto’s claims.
