Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua, has castigated the Judiciary on how it deals with corruption cases in the country between the haves and have nots (the rich and the poor), such as the case involving Wiper Democratic Movement party leader Kalonzo Musyoka about the Yatta Land where he was just left free after appearing before the EACC and DCI.
Speaking on an interview with Citizen television, Dr Mutua told the judiciary to stop treating other corrupt accused individuals as compared to others. He argued that all thieves are the same and the victims should be treated fairly by being taken through similar process of law. There's no way a chicken thief for example can be treated according to the law by being detained until judgement is done for him to be proven guilty, while others are treated so special by being left free to go while investigation is done.
"Mwizi ni mwizi, there's no way the judiciary can be treating the haves and have nots (the rich and the poor) so differently. There's no way a chicken thief can be treated according to the law by being detained until judgement is done, while the haves are just left free and being told to go until the investigation is done." He argued.
