It is a non issue when ordinary Kenyans are arrested on Fridays but the usual suspects finds it inhuman when that happens to well known individuals. There should be no one more equal than others under the law. Tom Ojienda.

So when should they be arrested according to you? Why were they arrested? Do you want to tell us the DCI is out of his mind.
Why don’t you and your close allies hate fight against corruption? Do you know something we don’t?

This is cheap propaganda at best. Investigations take long for various reasons, including actions of the corrupt that frustrate investigators. And there is no time limit on prosecution of crimes. Solution is to seek judicial remedies if such prosecutions are abuse of due process.
