New DCI Boss Massa Fires Back At Dp Rigathi Gachagua After Taking Over From Kinoti

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations has made it clear they will not stop looking for graft lords and will not ignore information concerning illegal behavior. On Tuesday, the acting DCI addressed the new multi-agency team formed to supervise the execution of the Auditor General audit findings.

The new team has the potential to keep President William Ruto's accounting officials on their toes in light of recent unresolved audit results. Acting DCI director Hamisi Massa scolded critics of the agency's surveillance efforts only days after George Kinoti was forced out of his post.

We instructed DCI to return to Kiambu Road and wait for reports of criminal activity. They shouldn't be hanging around government buildings like flies, as they do nothing except poison the atmosphere, as stated by DP Rigathi Gachagua. The new head of the anti-narcotics unit seemed to be following a different playbook than Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, who has been in his position for only a week.

Gachagua criticized anti-graft organizations more than two weeks ago, demanding that they stop their constant surveillance of public officials. Critics have said that the DP's remarks will encourage impunity and sleaze, causing concern inside the institutions.

Massa, speaking at a conference of chiefs of constitutional and independent offices called by the Auditor General, emphasized that the public has high expectations for the agencies' efforts to combat severe crimes. We'll be nice yet firm when we come for you. A humane approach to enforcement is what we're going for. We'll see you when you're happy.

He further assured the public that the police would not hesitate to make arrests if necessary. According to the investigator, the "who is who in the country" is frequently affected by cases of corruption, bribery, and cyber-security.

According to the police, anyone suspected of committing a crime will be called in and, if necessary, detained while the case is being looked into. Recently, the Vice President openly attacked anti-graft authorities for alleged surveillance, intrusion, and disrespect, which caused concern among those organizations.

To ensure that Auditor General Nancy Gathungu's recommendations are carried out, a new cross-departmental team has been established. Disappointing reports often go ignored.

The Vice President kept up the attacks on the DCI in a recent television interview, specifically naming the DCI's ex-director as the target of his comments.

"We need an experienced DCI, not a politician, a sob storyteller, or a performer. We need a DCI who is above the fray and the headlines "That's what Gachagua said.

We need one who will do thorough investigations, collect evidence, aggressively prosecute cases, and secure convictions for the accused. We had a DCI who liked to talk to the press; he muddied the waters of DCI's role, as Gachagua put it.

The spies working for the DCI, EACC, NIS, and other agencies concerned the DP the most. Police operations, according to Massa, are designed to "make people aware that there are consequences to what they do.
