Following the attack of Raila’s chopper on Friday at Kebenes in Uasin Gishu County, seventeen suspects have been arrested and are yet to appear in court. They discovered that they were in possession of 50 new notes.
Soi member of parliament Caleb Kositany, Kapseret member of parliament Oscar Sudi and Uasin Gishu speaker David Kiplagat were summoned by the DCI officers in Nakuru and said they will cooperate with them in regards to the incident.
However, they termed the action taken by the DCI as politically motivated. They cited different incidents whereby those allied to the other side of political divide which caused chaos leading to death but action was never taken.
Leaders from Azimio la Umoja had uttered inciting words or caused violence but DCI did not took any action. Francis Atwoli uttered publicly inciting words but was never summoned by DCI.
Sudi cited further the attack on blogger Dennis Itumbi case whereby the DCI failed to act on. Sudi said he has been linked on an incident the he was not aware but he has called for apologies to Raila, MPs Junet Mohamed and Babu Owino.
Despite the political differences he has never been involved in inciting or planning chaos, in all the political rallies he always advocate for peace.
“I have hosted elders, pastors and clergy in my home to talk about peace and unity”
Caleb suggested that a peace meeting at the site where the plane was stoned to preach peace and shame the politicians who are misusing the youths to cause chaos ahead of august elections.
