Stop your propaganda and bring to book Kenei Killers,DP Ruto tells DCI

BY UPESI REPORTER,NAIROBI,6TH MARCH 2020-Deputy President William Ruto on Friday  hit back at Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti over what he Friday termed as drama and distortions in the ongoing probe on the murder of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei.

Hours after the DCI confirmed Kenei was murdered, the DP has asked the country’s top crime buster to bring bring those culpable to justice and shun “dram, distortions and half-truths,” in reference to the much publicized release of surveillance footage showing former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa and his associates in a fake military tender racket ushered to the Harambee House Annex, Ruto’s town office, by Kenei.

While  addressing the press on Thursday, the DCI put Ruto’s office on the spot, after it emerged Echesa, his accomplices and two foreign arms dealers spent more than one hour in Harambee House Annex, contrary to what the DP had claimed.

Ruto’s office had earlier claimed Echesa was in his office for 23 minutes only.

From the footage, which was released by DCI Kinoti, Kenei who was dressed in a black suit first received Daniel Otieno Omondi, the man who played the role of a Military General in a deal to swindle the arms dealers Sh39 billion, in which they received Sh11.5 million.

Kenei’s body was discovered in his house two days after failing to report to work, at a time he was required to record a statement with detectives at the DCI Headquarters on activities of the day Echesa and the foreigners visited the DP’s office.

On Thursday, Chief of Staff at the DP’s office said he was impressed by the DCI’s efforts, “to investigate the fraudulent access to the Office of the Deputy President by crooks and cartels.”

Ken Osinde maintained that Echesa only spent 23 minutes inside the office, the rest of the time having been spent outside the complex.

He also countered claims that Ruto’s office did not report to police when Kenei went missing.

Osinde shared a letter dated February 20, in which the Head of Security at Harambee House Annex , Police Commissioner Joseph Rop, reported the matter.

Elegyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, who is a close ally of the DP, has asked the DCI to stop ‘sideshows,’ and deliver justice to the Kenei family as well make the country know who the arms dealers were.
