UPDATE: Friday 21, Senate Minority Leader James Orengo will lead Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka's legal team in his complaint against Deputy President William Ruto.
Orengo said Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti had assured Musyoka's legal team that the DP would be summoned to respond to their complaints.
"The DP has committed an offense and is criminally liable. You are not allowed to defame any person in this country on the basis of falsehood, lies or incitement," the Siaya Senator said after his client recorded a statement.
Wiper Democratic Leader Kalonzo Musyoka on Friday, January 22 presented himself at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu road.
Kalonzo, who arrived a few minutes to 10am was accompanied by his legal team and other Wiper leaders when he arrived at the headquarters.
Through his lawyer James Orengo, Kalonzo stated that the DP had committed the offense of criminal liable.
"You are not allowed to defame anybody in this country on the basis of falsehoods, lies or incitement. He has also committed the offense of uttering false information designed to cause disaffection and hatred.Wiper Party Leader Leader Kalonzo Musyoka (left) and Deputy President William Ruto (right).File
The Wiper leader is expected to record a statement over claims peddled against him that he grabbed a 200-acre piece of land belonging to the National Youth Service (NYS).
The remarks were made by Deputy President William Ruto in Bomet last Friday.
Ruto had asked Kalonzo to stop maligning his newly formed wheelbarrow party when he was a land grabber.
The Wiper leader has since termed the allegations as propaganda describing himself as a person of high moral and ethical standards.
He added that the move by the DP was aimed at assassinating his character.
"The wild claims hold no water. The allegations are a cheap and desperate attempt at character assassination. I uphold the highest moral and ethical standards in all my affairs. I have nothing to hide and I today challenge the authorities to open an investigation into this matter,” Kalonzo remarked.
He accused the DP of preaching divisiveness and labelled the DP a disruptor of law and order, comparing him to the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald Trump.
"People of DP Ruto's ilk must not be given a chance to wreak havoc through wolfishly deceitful manipulations. They must be stopped in their tracks," Kalonzo declared.
Kalonzo in his address challenged Ruto to allow the DCI and EACC to conduct a lifestyle audit on him.
“In the same vein, I challenge DP Ruto, well known for his unbridled greed for both public and private land, to offer himself for investigations concerning various claims of corruption," he challenged.Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters along Kiambu RoadSimon KiraguKenyans.co.ke
