Director of Criminal Investigations boss George Kinoti has denied claims that he directly linked the man suspected to be conning MPs to Murang'a Woman Representative Sabina Chege.
Kinoti dismissed reports by sections of the media stating that he had told MPs that Sabina has a special relationship with the suspect.
“I did not say that. The media misinterpreted what I said," Kinoti exclaimed.

Kinoti further asserted that he only mentioned that most of the complainants are known to the suspect in one way or another but did not single out on Ms Chege.
“The stories published in the media are not only false but misleading,” he expressed.
The detective also noted that the man, who registered a phone line in the name of the Murang'a legislator, is a former Devolution Ministry official.
The man, identified as Wazir Benson Masubo Chacha, used to masquerade as Anne Waiguru's personal assistant during her time at the ministry.
“He has conned many MPs through those tricks because he impersonated as the PA to Waiguru,” Kinoti divulged.
“We are looking for him to face charges in the ongoing investigations. We have enough evidence to take him to court," Kinoti added.
Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Ms Chege stated that the allegations linking her to the man are false noting that a concrete report from the National Assembly Security Committee will be released in the next coming days.
"I am not related to the man in question. Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti said that the accused has a special relationship with the complainant but I am not the only complainant," Sabina commented.
