Resistance Leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday chastised Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro for supporting a Bill that will cut the forces of the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) just as the Office of Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP).
Talking amid the dispatch of Huduma Namba in Likoni, Mombasa, he expressed that the MP was hauling Kenya behind on the war against defilement.
The previous Premier began his assault by communicating worry that Kenya included conspicuously on the Global Corruption Index by Transparency International.
“Huyo Mbunge akili yake ni timamu? Akili yake ni timamukweli? Si ameshikwanawendawazimuhuyo? (Is that MP sane. Is he sane? Hasn’t he gone mad?)” Odinga posed to the crowd.
Odinga was clearly astonished by the timing of Nyoro’s bill when the anti-graft war had picked momentum.
The ODM leader also questioned why the lawmaker would sponsor such legislation yet he was not under investigation.
Odinga ended his attack by advising Nyoro that if he was afraid of being exposed for corruption, he should just present himself to authorities.
The Anti-Corruption Laws (Amendment) Bill, if passed into law, will restrict the powers of the DCI and DPP to only investigating and prosecuting criminal matters respectively.
All corruption cases will be handled by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) which still does not have prosecution powers.
