The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti has been under intense pressure since the High Court sentenced him to serve four months in Kamiti Maximum Prison for the failure to return Jimmy Wanjigi's firearms.
The DCI boss tried to appeal for the sentencing, but the High Court still wants him to serve the four months in jail. Deputy President William Ruto's close allies including Dennis Itumbi still want George Kinoti behind bars as they are pushing hard on this.
Taking to his official Twitter podcast today, Dennis Itumbi has pleaded with President Uhuru Kenyatta yet again to ensure that George Kinoti is jailed as the President is presiding over the passing parade of administration police officers.
"Mr. President as you prepare to deliver the State of the Nation Address, please ensure @DCI_Kenya boss Mr. KINOTI proceeds to JAIL immediately. The High Court has declined to stay orders on contempt that imprisoned him without the option of a fine for FOUR MONTHS. Rule of Law." Dennis Itumbi wrote.
Should George Kinoti be jailed?
