DAILY POST: You won’t believe why MPs gagged DCI, GEORGE KINOTI, and EACC from investigating them for corruption – They should all be fired



Friday
November 30, 2018
– National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale, has
revealed why legislators barred the Directorate of Criminal Investigations
(DCI) from conducting a blanket investigation on the House with regard to
a bribery report to protect their 2022 interests.
According to Duale, subjecting
all the 349 members to investigation could have had a detrimental impact on the
2022 polls if some would not have been cleared by then by the DCI and the anti-corruption
body prior to elections
.
“This is a serious matter!”
“Allowing other agencies to
investigate members can drag to 2022 and some MPs might not be cleared to vie
for elections,” said Duale.
While adopting the report by
the Powers and Privileges Committee, the MPs directed the DCI and the EACC
to limit their scope of investigation to only the MPs who were implicated
in the toilet bribery scandal that led to the 
rejection
of the sugar report, instead of bringing the whole House down.
“Let the people who made the
allegations go to DCI and EACC as ordinary Kenyans and give evidence, but you
cannot indict 349 MPs, including the Speaker, with no evidence,” they said.
