Cabinet secretary for Interior and National Administration Professor Kithure Kindiki has sent Trans Mara Deputy County Commissioner on 30 day compulsory leave after he was recorded threatening to aid Al Shabaab militants to terrorise residents.
In the video that went viral, Trans Mara South Deputy County Commissioner was recorded claiming that he had contacts for Al-Shabaab, and he was willing to call them so that they could terrorise people in Transmara.
The DCC has now been instructed not to come close to his area of work as the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, DCI now involved in the investigations to establish the motive behind his remarks.
The DCC has however maintained that the video in which he was recorded saying that he was ready to invite Al Shabaab in Transmara was doctored.
Officers from DCI's Forensic Unit were reviewing the alleged video to establish its authenticity even as other units began combing through the South Transmara Deputy County Commissioner's data in order to search for any possible links to Al-Shabaab.
