The confusion continues

Wajinga Nyinyi hit maker King Kaka records statement with police after warning from DCI over false summons

Musician and rapper Kennedy Ombima, popularly known by his stage name King Kaka on Tuesday afternoon recorded a police statement with the Kenya Police shortly after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) warned against tarnishing the institution's name with false claims.

Activist Boniface Mwangi said they made the police complaint on the advice of the DCI. The matter was recorded at Muthaiga Police Station and booked under OB number 14 of December 17th 2019.

"The @DCI_Kenya instructed @RabbitTheKing to report the person that summoned him at Muthaiga Police Station. He has reported and @NPSOfficial_KE @PoliceKE have promised to investigate whoever called and summoned him. He has been issued with Occurence Book (OB) number 42/17/12/19," Mwangi said.

On Tuesday morning, King Kaka claimed to have received summons ordering him to report to the DCI headquarters along Kiambu Road.

However, the DCI shortly after dismissed his tweet, and accused him of spreading false claims for purposes of attracting publicity.

"We wish to condemn strongly false information being peddled through social media to the effect that one Kennedy Ombima @RabbitTheKing has been summoned. Nobody from @DCI_Kenya has summoned him."

"Anybody wishing for publicity should be warned to desist from using the @DCI_Kenya as platform in seeking media attention," the DCI stated before turning away the musician at their Kiambu Road offices.

The Wajinga Nyinyi hit maker clarified that he had received a number from a person claiming to be from the CID (DCI's predecessor institution) issuing him with the verbal summons.

Pulse Live exclusively spoke to the holder of the number that allegedly called King Kaka, who identified himself as Callen Onyancha but denied being a Police Officer.

Onyancha said he had spoken to King Kaka's manager on a business matter involving a possible club performance, adding that he had not made any summons to the musician.
