Embattled Meru county senator Mithika Linturi is a wanted man by the officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.

This has been revealed by the DCI head of serious crimes unit Mr Obadiah Kuria who noted that the senator has consistently refused to obey summons that were made to him.

"We are seeking a warrant of arrest against the politician for we have no other option after he snubbed our summons."DCI head of serious crimes unit Mr Obadiah Kuria noted.

He had been summoned on Tuesday where he failed to appear before the DCI headquarters and they rescheduled the summons to wednesday where he also failed to appear and never gave any reasons.

He is battling a petition filed by a voter, Michael Makarena, seeking to compel the police and the EACC to arrest and arraign him over alleged fake university papers.

The alleged offences include forgery of a KCSE certificate, knowingly providing misleading and false information to a public entity and the execution of false declaration forms.

Machakos county Gubernatorial candidate Wavinya Ndeti however appeared before the DCI headquarters on Wednesday where she shed the light on allegations she acquired a master's degree before getting her bachelor's degree.
