Over the last few days, Kenyans have been treated to a high-profile clash between Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti and IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati over the arrest of three Venezuelans on Thursday last week.
According to DCI Kinoti, the three are neither employees of the commission nor the firm contracted to deliver election materials but instead were in the country for a private business trip and scheduled to meet a businessman Abdulahi Abdi Mohamed in Nairobi.
Kinoti said further investigations had established that the Venezuelan nationals had expired passports.
However, in a strongly worded statement, Chebukati said it was disappointed about the arrests of the three foreigners and maintained that the three were ‘key in the management of August 9, 2022, General Election’s technological network’.
Kinoti has since challenged Chebukati to put his house in order ahead of the polls.
Whom do you think is telling the truth between IEBC and DCI? Could this push and pull between the two entities lead to a possible postponement of the August 9 polls?
