Oscar Sudi summoned over worrying remarks on Rift Valley violence

Sudi's in trouble over controversial Mungiki comment

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi claims Mungiki has been hired to attack DP Ruto's backyard

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has been summoned over controversial remarks he made touching on the peace relations between the Kikuyu and Kalenjin communities living in the Rift Valley.

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) asked the MP to report at its Nairobi headquarters today Monday at 10am.

"NCIC has summoned Kapseret MP, Hon. Oscar Sudi to appear before the Commission today 15th June 2020 at 10 am for further interrogation over the utterances he made in Uasin Gishu County."

The MP drew public anger and concern after he sensationally accused a Jubilee MP of hiring the outlawed criminal group Mungiki for purposes of causing violence in the Rift Valley.

Sudi claimed members of the Mungiki sect had been hired with the intention of being deployed in Uasin Gishu and other parts of the Rift Valley that are supportive of Deputy President William Ruto.

"The same person who was distributing poisoned food has now recruited Mungiki and is planning to deploy the group to Uasin Gishu and other parts of the Rift Valley so that it can be said that Kikuyus and Kalenjins are fighting."

"I'm saying this because I want to warn my people to stay alert because God has enabled to learn of this bad plan in advance. Recently I raised the alarm that they were planning to kill the DP and that is why they did not carry out their plan. I want our people to make sure we will not be divided by politics because Rift Valley is the home of all communities," Sudi stated.

The MP said he had not reported the matter to the police, claiming the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) was biased against the Deputy President.
