Deputy President William Ruto has slammed the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) for “peddling lies and engaging in a smear campaign” against his office in its investigations into the murder of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei.
Ruto asked the DCI to investigate and unravel who, why and how Kenei was murdered instead of treating Kenyans to drama and sideshows with endless press statements.
“The truth must be found on why, how, and who killed Sergeant Kenei,” he tweeted on Friday.
Ruto said what the family and the Office of Deputy President and Kenyans want to see is the culprits of the heinous act held to account and not the ongoing drama, distortion, half-truths and smear campaigns in sponsored headlines.
The family, ODP, and Kenyans want the truth and justice and culprits held to account, not the ongoing drama, distortions, convenient half-truths and the smear campaigns in sponsored headlines,” he tweeted, adding that their sideshows amounted to a criminal cover-up.
