Mavoko demolitions: MP Makau insists he’s innocent
Mavoko Member of Parliament (MP) Patrick Makau insists he is innocent and that the summons issued by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over the Aimi Ma Lukenya Society was merely political.
Mr Makau is among 30 people, including senior police officers, who have been summoned to record statements over the land dispute that has left hundreds homeless after their houses were demolished.
“I will continue to fight for the rights of the people I represent. Why did they decide to demolish the buildings instead of sitting down and negotiating?” said Mr Makau.
Interestingly, the DCI summoned some senior bosses who served in the same office as they strongly said they believed they had a case to answer.
Also summoned are top police bosses including three former assistant commissioners who served in Mavoko; Mr Charles Wambugu, David Juma and Geoffrey Omondi.
Former Mavoko sub-county police commanders have also been summoned and include; Mr Kizito Mutoro, Mr Sharma Wario and Mr Samuel Mukuusi.
Former DCI bosses in Mavoko have also been summoned and they include; Mr Joseph Mumira, Mr Martin Korongo and Mr Vincent Kipkorir. Ms Cecilia Mbete Nzioka, the acting chief at Athi River location, has also been summoned.
It remains unclear whether the National Police Service (NPS) officers also recorded their statements.
Currently, DCI detectives are recording statements from willing victims in a bid to crack the case and arrest the main suspects who have made it difficult for EAPC to reclaim their land.
The DCI said he wanted the victims to bring documents proving that they had bought the land, proof of payments made for the land purchases and land certificates issued when they had paid in full for the plots.
