DCI boss George Kinoti has rubbished claims by Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala that a special squad has been formed to assassinate him.
Kintoti who appeared before the senate committee on justice and legal affairs stated that the alleged hit squad does not exist in the Special Services Unit and by extension, the DCI.
“A search though the DCI personnel data could not find any of the alleged purpoted police officers’ names given in the complaint letter,” said Kinoti.
Kinoti states that a search on the National Police Service database only found one police officer from the list given by Malala.
Kinoti says that the said officer hailed from Kakamega and bore no existing bad blood with Malala.
When recording a complaint over his assassination claims, Malala alleged that the motor vehicle which was previously allegedly trailing him was reassigned unknown South Sudanese registration numbers to avoid detection
“On September 16, 2020, investigators visited NPS headquarters seeking identities of the purported police officers alleged to be members of a special service unit assassination squad as alleged (by Cleophas Malala) in the letter Investigators also visited Hotel La Mada and were furnished with entry/exit register for the last 3 months, they were allowed to assess CCTV footage capturing motor vehicles in question, and the hotel availed an employee to record a statement,” stated Kinoti.
“Hotel La Mada management and staff affirmed that meetings fitting the description as alleged by Senator Cleophas Malala never took place within the premises, and that the said motor vehicle has never visited the premises,” he said.
