Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has given the head of the criminal investigation department (DCI) two days to report his mobile phone failure, which he will go to in person.
In a terse message on his social media account posted Monday night, lawmakers said he had been told by the DCI to leave his phone for a day.
To DCI Kinoti, you asked me to leave my phone at your office for a day, but you've been at it for over a month now. I'll give you tomorrow and Wednesday or I'll be at your office on Thursday to pick up my phone," e.
The MP, along with his counterpart at Soy, Caleb Kositany, and Uasin Gishu County Assembly, David Kiplagat, have been named by the DCI as "persons of interest" responsible for the May 1 attack on ODM leader Raila Odinga's helicopter Jackson Kibor.
The DCI said in a statement at the time that preliminary investigations showed the mess that led to the shattering of the windshield of the helicopter carrying the opposition leader was pre-planned.
In light of the foregoing, the two lawmakers and the Speaker of the District Assembly have been called upon to appear in person before the Rift Valley DCI Regional Coordinator at 9 a.m. on April 3 for a further investigation into their involvement in the incident, the DCI said in an explanation.
17 youths have been arrested after finding wads of new 50 bills allegedly given to them as incitement to attack coalition party flag-bearer Azimio la Umoja One, who had just sent his condolences to the family of the late Mzee Kibor.
15 of the 17 youths arrested have since been acquitted of the crime by a court in Eldoret.
Mr Odinga's presidential secretariat said the stoning of the opposition leader's helicopter, which prompted him to change helicopters, was an attempt on his life.
The brazen attack was like an attempt on his life. It could easily have resulted in serious harm to him and members of his entourage, said Prof Makau Mutua, spokesman for the secretariat.
We urge the state to leave no stone unturned in investigating the attack on Mr Odinga and his entourage to bring the weight and full force of the law to those responsible, he had said.
