DCI boss Kinoti responds to jurisdiction question
Mr Kinoti further issued a response to politicians who had raised questions over his jurisdiction in investigating corruption cases.
"We are capable of fighting corruption. Let no one lie to Kenyans that the police department cannot fight corruption. We assure Kenyans that we will not be cowed.
"We will serve Kenyans faithfully and diligently. Anyone caught stealing public funds must be held accountable for their deeds," he stated.
He also asked politicians to give his office the space to carry out their mandate in the fight against corruption.
"As the police department, we are ready to see that mwananchi gets justice. We have the capacity to investigate. Let politicians stop peddling lies to wananchi.
"The DCI has the powers bestowed onto him by the Constitution to carry out investigations. We are already doing high-profile cases.
"We are working on the cases, let politicians give us space. I cannot give more information on the cases, as they are under investigation," he stated on Monday.
Deputy President William Ruto is among those who have accused the DCI of being used to undermine government development projects through the numerous investigations.
