President Uhuru Kenyatta hit out at DCI George Kinoti after reports claimed that the agency was investigating the 2007/08 Post Election Violence (PEV).
On Wednesday, Uhuru cautioned against reopening of the PEV ghosts adding that he does not agree with the move.
"Ndio nasema, wale ambao wanaojaribu kichimbua makaburi wasifikiri wanacheza. Mimi siwezi kukubaliana na mambo kama hayo. You don't think before you talk, you don't think before you act," the Head of State said.
This comes after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) refuted earlier reports that it was reopening Post Election Violence Cases.
In a statement on Tuesday, November 24 2020, the DCI said it was looking into recent complains from the public who raised concerns about their safety.
"I would like to draw the attention of the nation to the misconceptions that the DCI has decided to revisit PEV cases that happened in 2007/2008. This is not the case," the statement read in part.
"The DCI has recently received complaints of fear and apprehension from members of the public who feel that their lives and property are in imminent danger owing to threats," it continued.
DCI Kinoti explained that when such complaints are made the agency is mandated to look into the threats and find a way forward to ensure all lives and property are protected.
