“I told you guys the Moi era is back! We have sunk so low! Now embrace yourself for a rough ride! The reformers have turned errand boy of dictators!”
The Samburu senator was among the five mentioned by Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen on Sunday, August 16, when he claimed his colleagues in parliament were facing arrest by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over their stand on the revenue sharing formula.
On the night to Monday, More than 20 officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations also pit camp at the home of Bomet Senator Christopher Langat in a bid to arrest him for his stand on the formula.
Police also camped outside the apartment of Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala on the night to Monday with orders to take him to the DCI in an attempt at the ape type system of government tactics where rule of law was a myth.
