The DCI's current and acting director, Hon. Hamisi Massa, has come out swinging to deny allegations and media reports that he recently reprimanded deputy president Rigathi Gachagua, telling him that nobody, with the exception of the head of state, is above the law.
According to earlier Star newspaper reports, Hon. Hamisi Massa reportedly told Gachagua that the nature of the DCI jobs is intrusive and rejected the directive to return to Kiambu Road. Additionally, it was claimed that Hamisi Massa had threatened to detain any leader who was thought to be corrupt.
Hamisi Massa reportedly disagreed with the accusations in the star newspaper during the reports by Kenyans.co.ke, claiming that no one from the DCI said such things.
The statement said in part, "This is so to explain that at no point did the Ag DCI reference or allude to the DP or any other government figure in his remarks, therefore the media headline portrays a misreported and uncredited viewpoint."
Gachagua questioned the investigating agency's methods in the interview with Citizen TV on Sunday, October 4—particularly those employed by previous DCI director George Kinoti.
