On Monday, Eldas Member of Parliament Adan Keynan and his counterpart for Fafi Abdikarim Osman Mohamed failed to show up at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on ground that they had not received any summon.
Why two MPs skipped summons at DCI headquarters
They were to appear at 10:00 am on Monday
According to MP Abdikarim, neither DCI nor police has presented him with papers that required him to appear before them, over defamation in relation to a leaked sex tape that went viral late last year.
“I have not received any summon from the DCI nor the police. They all know where to find me but no one has communicated with me so far regarding the purported summon,” the legislator said.
The two, who had been summoned alongside, Isiolo Woman Representatives Rehema Jaldesa and Kiringaga’s Wowen Representative Wangui wa Ngirici, had been accused defaming Wajir Woman representative Fatuma Gedi using the video in question.
Rehema Jaldesa and Wangui wa Ngirici, are expected o report to the DCI headquarters for questioning on Tuesday.
Detectives are said to be investigating the authenticity of the video and also trying to establish who the woman in the video which had been widely circulated on social media was.
Clerk of the National Assembly
After investigations, the sleuths reportedly stated that the MPs had been mentioned after an editor of a local news website was arrested last year for questioning.
The DCI has also written a letter to the clerk of the National Assembly asking him to serve the MPs with details of the summon.
Detectives are relying on information given by Douglas Baya who was arrested by police on December 27 and arraigned before Kiambu Senior Resident Magistrate Brian Kiambu.
However, the Wajir County woman representative distanced herself from sex tape stating that the clip was concocted to taint her reputation and image.
