Deputy President William Ruto has asked Directorate of Criminal Investigations Director George Kinoti to stop drama and smear campaigns and instead find the killers of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei.
Ruto through his twitter handle has accused Kinoti of giving Kenyans half truths and distortions instead of telling the truth as to why, how and who killed Kenei.
“The truth MUST be found on WHY, HOW,and WHO killed Sgt kenei. The family, ODP,and Kenyans want the TRUTH & JUSTICE and culprits held to account. The drama, distortions, convenient half-truths and the smear campaigns in sponsored headlines amounts to criminal cover up,” he said on Twitter.
Kinoti on Thursday linked Deputy President William Ruto with the killing of Kenei.
Kinoti stated that Kenei’s killers stage managed the crime scene where Kenei was found to make it look like it was suicide.
During a media briefing that saw the DCI play CCTV footage from Ruto’s office, Kinoti accused office of the DP of editing the footage they gave the DCI officers.
“The footage which we were given for the 23 minutes only shows the suspect who has already been presented in court with the involvement of international crime Rashiod Echesa and two victims enter Harambee Annex and it did not show anywhere the involvement of the deceased neither the other accused person more so the one who was so called General Juma. They only provided an edited version of the events,” stated Kinoti.
