DCI boss issues new orders as investigations into Raila’s swearing in continue

Tough times ahead for Nasa after Kinoti does this...

The DCI head ordered County Criminal Investigation Officers and Divisional Criminal Investigation Officers to reveal unresolved past serious crimes.

According to Kinoti, “The DCI has noted some lapse in the accountability of above cases in their reporting, submission, investigations and follow up.”

It appears that things will not be rosy for the detectives because the DCI report says that all CCIOs and DCIOs will be directly accountable for all robberies occurring within their areas of responsibility.

A directive was passed on February 6 seeking to restructure the timelines for investigations. According to the notice, every case that remains PUI (Pending Under Investigation) for more than six weeks will have to be accounted for by the respective CCIO and Regional Commander.

In addition, they will give an explanation as to why it has remained in that status for that period. The RCs and CCIOs will also submit a duplicate file of the PUI case.

The notice further warns, “Any DCIO or CCIO who will be found to have flouted or disregarded this directive will face serious administrative action.”

This comes in the wake of investigations into the mock swearing in of Raila Odinga with Nasa politicians such as Miguna Miguna and TJ Kajwang' being arrested.

Businessman Jimi Wanjigi, Senator James Orengo and David Ndii had reported at the DCI headquarters in Kiambu. They intended to serve the Police with anticipatory orders to prevent their arrests. However they were turned away because they were not "persons of interest".

George Kinoti recently took over from Ndegwa Muhoro following nomination from President Uhuru Kenyatta.
