The high court has declined to set aside the order jailing Directorate of Criminal Investigations – DCI boss George Kinoti for 4 months.

Justice Antony Mrima on Monday said the orders he made on November 18 should be complied with.

It is a bold step against impunity and reckless use of power in Kenya as the man in charge of the police intelligence collection has been made to know that he is not above the law.

Under Kinoti, DCI officers have abused their power and continue to do so with reckless abandon. This should not be the case.

For example, a renowned Kenyan blogger was arrested, evidence planted on him by DCI sleuths who were under the command of a know drug lord.

We have also seen that, under the guise of the war on terror, men in plainclothes wielding guns, driving subarus, with fake number plates, abducting people in broad daylight. This should not be the case.

It is time to clean up such a dangerous mess, get a new DCI boss and make the force accountable for its actions.

Forever a fugitive

George Kinoti’s curious promotion to a member of the Interpol Executive Committee should be disregarded as he is a fugitive.

And how curious is it that no mention from international media about this promotion? Was it legit, or was it one of those that the Uhuru Kenyatta govt have been buying since 2014 in order to shore up their PR?

“If IG Hilary Mutyambai fails to execute the warrant, the same shall remain valid and be executed at any time, including when Kinoti leaves the office of the DCI”.
