A section of leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto have cautioned Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai against being used to perpetrate violence in the country.
Speaking in Nyeri on Tuesday, the leaders claimed that if the IG is not careful, the International Criminal Court will come for him over recent deaths in the country, including those witnessed in Murang’a recently.
“IG, the ICC is beckoning, you will answer for the deaths at Kenol and any other Kenyan that will die…Those misusing you now did the same to Ali before you and he ended up in ICC…Under your watch IG, people were poisoned in Kikuyu, people were evicted, all these are crimes against humanity,” Kikuyu Member of Parliament Kimani Ichung’wa said as quoted by Citizen.
