There’s another set of news concerning the Directorate of Criminal Investigations. In a video post by famous freelance journalist Gerald Bitok, the Kiambaa Residents have come out to speak about the information that they went to DCI purportedly to report on fresh threats facing them.
According to the narration by the residents on that video, they were astonished to be informed while at DCI headquarters that their lives were in danger owing to fresh threats from people who DCI did not disclose.
It is to be remembered that Kiamba Church was the worst-hit area as far as 2008 post-election violence is concerned. Many people lost their lives when they were burned alive while seeking refuge in the church. But in the aftermath, the residents forgave each other and have been living in peace ever since. The new twist from DCI nearly reignited the memories.
During the launch of the BBI signature collection, president Uhuru Kenyatta was candid on his stand on reopening post-election violence cases. He spoke strongly in a manner many interpreted as telling off DCI Kinoti and his team on their sentiments.
