Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi and Soy Member of Parliament Caleb Kositany reported to Nakuru Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Offices on Sunday afternoon.

The two MPs were summoned by the DCI to record their statements in connection to the attack on Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his entourage in Soy, Uasin Gishu County, on Friday.

Also summoned with the legislators was the Uasin Gishu Speaker David Kiplagat who reported to the DCI’s regional office on Sunday morning.

Before leaving for Nakuru, the two MPs invited journalists for a press briefing in which they both maintained their innocence and claimed political targeting.

They reiterated that they had no involvement in organising the violence against Raila.

Sudi said he was a champion of peace and would never plan chaos because he fully understood the implications of such.

“I will never plan chaos. I fully understand the tragedy of violence. If there is a leader who leads a cosmopolitan area, that’s me. That is why I will never advocate for violence,” Sudi said.

Kositany claimed the rowdy youth who took part in the attack were ferried to the scene to cause chaos at Mzee Jackson Kibor’s funeral.

He also insinuated that they were being targeted by the police because of their political affiliation to Deputy President William Ruto. 

“The police know the names of those who ferried youths to the venue. They are known, but because they want to build a narrative that close associates of the deputy president are perpetrating violence that is why my name and that of Sudi have been put on the list,” Kositany said.

The DCI revealed the names of 14 suspects who were arrested over the stoning of Raila’s helicopter.
