The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti has revived cases against the perpetrators of the 2007/8 post-election violence. 

Addressing the press on Monday, Kinoti said they had registered 72 cases adding that victims had received new threats. 

"We have heard the victims' cries and complaints of emerging threats, and are promising them that they shall not even be scratched on the same account again. 

"We have registered around 72 cases from those whose wives/husbands/children were killed. We have recorded cases of some who were driven out of their homes. We have 118 cases in total registered today with complainants and witnesses,'' Kinoti said. 

The DCI boss assured the victims that the State would protect them and ensure they don't experience threats or violence. 

In one of the darkest moments of Kenya's history, the 2007/08 PEV left 1300 people dead and over 600,000 displaced.
