In Summary

  • "They have not given me a written summon. They called Danstan Omari who is the coalition lawyer and they said they want me to appear," the senator added.
  • The two are reportedly expected to appear at the DCI Headquarters today (Wednesday) "we don't know for what".

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has issued a summon to Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna and former Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya- Sifuna says.

Speaking on Wednesday, Sifuna alleged that the investigative agency did not issue the summon through a direct letter to them.

"They have not given me a written summon. They called Danstan Omari who is the coalition lawyer and they said they want me to appear," the senator added.

The two are reportedly expected to appear at the DCI Headquarters today (Wednesday) "we don't know for what".

Sifuna went on to claim it was a plot by Kenya Kwanza politicians, as part of a larger plan to eventually arrest Azimio leader Raila Odinga.

"The leadership of Kenya Kwanza are in agreement that Baba (Raila) needs to be arrested. The police are in agreement that Baba needs to be arrested. Where they are stuck is the person to do this arrest. 

"Let them agree among them who will arrest Raila. Because summoning me or arresting me, I am a very small player in this particular cause... Stop harassing us," the Orange Democratic Movement Sec Gen explained.

Sifuna stated he would honour the DCI summon despite being unaware of the reasons behind it.

"I am a law-abiding citizen. I am an officer of the court. If they summon me I will go there because I have nothing to hide. Let them tell me what crime I have committed," he added.

This come a day to the Azimio Thursday protests.
