    9 SSU officers cite being pressured to incriminate Kinoti

    Published on

    Nine officers from the dissolved Special Services Unit are claiming they are being held in, in return for incriminating former Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti.

    The officers, however, argued against the application, stating that the true motivation behind it was political.

    In a hearing before Chief Magistrate Diana Mochache, the nine’s attorney Danstan Omari argued that his clients’ arrest was politically motivated.

    “The only reason my clients are here is because the state wants to use them as political pawns. They are being forced to incriminate their leader and turn him into a state witness.” Omari told the court.

    “Even the supposedly recovered remains and belongings to the Indians have been shunned by their families.” he added.

    Kirui has warned that the safety of the investigators could be compromised if the accused is released on bail or bond.

    “Genuine worry and dread permeate the atmosphere. Initial inquiries have led us to believe that there is a bigger network of people who have not been apprehended but who may have critical information for our ongoing probes.” Kirui stated
